Furry Friends on the Job: Meet Jojo from Harold’s Jewelry Store

This is Jojo the Yorkie! Jojo was rescued by her humans Kathy and Dan Tuschhoff when she was 4 1/2-years-old. She works every day as the greeter at Harold’s Jewelry Store in Jackson, Missouri. When not enthusiastically greeting customers, Jojo can be found bringing attention to Harold’s window display while enjoying the sun, walking on the glass counters pointing out pretty pieces to customers, or just saying hi and keeping them company while they wait on a watch battery to be changed. While customers may come in for a repair or to purchase jewelry, they stay for Jojo, and some even stop by again just to say hello.
