Joka's a big, looming Cane Corso Mastiff mix and once belonged to some lowlife, small dicked dirtbag who hacked off his ears when he was a pup to make him look tough, and sure, he looks tough until he swings his hind end against your leg and leans into you and gazes back up at you waiting for butt scratches.
I'm glad I don't own a house at the moment because if I did, I'd probably have a new dog right now. No one should ever adopt a dog on impulse but if I were ever going to break that rule, a dog like Joka would be the cause of my infraction.
Big bowling ball head, good on a leash (he pulls but only slightly), gentle with people and he appeared okay with most other dogs - though I didn't have time to do any up close and personal dog to dog introductions.
Joka will clear the sidewalks for sure and that always attracts a certain type of douchebag who will want him for an ego boost, so the trick will be to find him an owner who will treat him kindly and well and allow his gentle nature to flourish.
This was Joka's reaction when Mia passed by and gave him a stare down (Mia is about a third his size):
The best way to check on the adoption status of this dog (and other dogs and cats and other small domestic animals) is to visit Toronto Animal Services adoption website or call 416 338 6668 for the Toronto Animal Services South shelter. If the dog is no longer on the TAS adoption website, it's probably because it's been adopted already.
