Joe

‘Website Woof’ presents Joe. Joe was born in November 2011.

We hope you enjoy reading the volunteers’ descriptions of their walks with the hounds. If you would like to find out more about Joe please visit our kennels and talk with a member of staff.

The kennels are open daily for hound walking from 11am until 2pm and are located at Burhill Kennels, Turners Lane, Hersham, KT12 4AW.

JOE WENT TO PAINSHILL PARK ON JANUARY 20th 2018, WITH CLÍONA B. THIS IS WHAT CLÍ SAID ABOUT JOE:

‘This lovely likeable leaner is a pleasure to walk. I’ve never had an easier hound in the car, he jumped in and settled like a pro. He didn’t even mind when Garry also jumped into my small car. Joe can’t put a paw wrong, completely ignoring an Airedale Terrier and a Husky, ducks and geese. He enjoyed the walk and the change of scenery on a loose lead with the other hounds.

Impeccably well-behaved he walks extremely well and leans on you while waiting patiently every time you stop. He has fabulous facial expressions and my favourite is his ‘I’m not getting out of the car, even for a sausage treat’ face. This boy will brighten up any home, after all he is adJOErable!’

Joe went to Painshill Park with Craig W. on November 5th 2017. This is what Craig said about Joe:

‘Where have all the good guys gone??? Well I can tell you there’s one such greyhound hiding at Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare called Joe!! Joe joined us for a walk around Painshill Park with his fellow four legged friend Faith. I can honestly say it is a pleasure to be in Joe’s company and we went on one of the most memorable walks I’ve had.

A compliant passenger plus a star on the lead, he just takes it all in his stride. The presence of geese and squirrels were taken with a glance and a move on style. The park was quiet on this day, although on the encounters we had he was not bothered at all.

Give Joe a go, he’s no ego or show, but the loveliest hound to those in the know. ‘
