Hi there, I am Joshua. A big name for a big guy! I made my way to Dogtown alllllll the way from Cape Town. I was in a rescue centre there but they were really struggling to help me with my “quirks” and that is when it was decided that I would pack my bags and move to Dogtown. I have never looked back, every day here at Dogtown is an adventure!

I have grown so much in my time here but I am not quite ready to be adopted just yet. I am still learning about sharing “stuff”. I have a bit of a “mine mine mine” outlook on things but I am working through that, one step at a time. I am not crazy about having my ears touched, I cant explain it, it just feels too wierd. So one day when I am ready to be adopted, it would have to be in a home without young kids as they are very touchy-touchy in the ears department I’ve heard.

I can be very affectionate and I really love playing in my garden, especially when my roomie, Molly, joins in for a game of chase or tug. I would love a home one day where there are other dogs, I am super social.

I will be in touch and as soon as I am ready to be adopted, I will shout it from the rooftops 🙂
