Arrival Story: My mom and I spotted Joy in the pet shop four months before we purchased him. He caught our eyes since we already had a Shiba Inu (see Danny's page below) at home. From then on, we returned to the pet store occasionally to check up on him... It saddened us to find him in his cage every time we visited, so we decided (without dad's consent HAHA he thought one dog was more than enough to handle) to buy him at the end of three months if he was still there. We even took him to a playroom in the back of the shop to play with him! I nearly cried watching Joy run excitedly in circles when he was out of the cage. At the end of our agreed schedule, there he sat in his cage that had become too small for his body. We brought him home.
Bio: The night Joy arrived, Danny chased him out of the house. After much scolding and biting, Danny eventually came to accept Joy as a live-in nuisance.
