Hello, my name is Joy! I am full of it! Joy, that is. And it fits me perfectly. I am a little bit more shy than my sister, Polly, who also lives here at Hallie Hill. But once I know you, I LOVE you! I love to play ball and I, like my sister, love the water. I live with Buddy who is also a great dog and would love a forever home. I am very patient and get along well with others (as you can see in one of the photos - Buddy is chewing on me and I don't mind). I am about 65 lbs or so, beautiful chocolate brown in color with some white highlights on my face, chest and legs and the tip of my tail. I am probably some kind of retriever or water dog mix of some sort with a sprinkle of hound thrown in for good measure. I would love to find a forever home with someone who would take me to great places of water like the beach, a pond, or a swimming pool. I love summer because I get to visit Gerty's Pond (at Hallie Hill) and the people who care for me bring me a pool to splash around in. (Buddy likes it too!) I have a special friend here who gives me extra TLC and I just eat it up. I sure would make you a fine pet. It would be great to finally have a home to call my own. Please come visit and get to know me, you will certainly not be able to resist my charm. And if you have a boat or a kayak - that is even better. I think you could train me to go along with you. Just you and me... peacefully paddling down the Edisto....just think of it. Woof! :)
