Muttley Monday's adoptable pet is Joshua.

Joshua was rescued from extreme neglect.

When the B.C. Humane society took custody, he was very thin with a deep wound around his neck, likely from being chained for a long time outside.

Now, he is extremely appreciateve of simple things, like regular meals and the human touch.

While in a foster home, he was wonderful with the very young children in the house. His foster family thought, with his loving temperment, he would even be a good candidate for a job as a therapy dog.

He was interested in the cats in his foster home but didn't bother them.

You can visit Joshua at the B.C. Humane Society at 2 Jackson Street, Binghamton. For information on setting up a visit, adopting, volunteering or donating, go to or call (607) 724-3709.
