Joule has come a long way since she was rescued four years ago by Brenna Eckert.
“Joule had a lot of anxiety when we first adopted her,” Eckert told The Dodo. “We worked one-on-one with a dog behaviorist to help work through some of her issues.”
“She is certainly a velcro dog,” Eckert said. “When we are home she always needs to be close to us.”
Shortly after Joule joined the family, Eckert adopted another pet: an orange tabby kitten whom she named Kelvin. Joule and Kelvin got along great from the beginning — which seemed meant to be.
“The animal shelters had given each of them a temporary name before we adopted them,” Eckert said. “Kelvin's shelter name was Socks and Joule's shelter name was Sandals. How ironic that Socks and Sandals make such a great pair!”
