It's grammatically correct, but no one would say that. You can't tackle someone with joy. If you want "joy" in the sentence: HIs dogs joyfully tackled him in greeting.

"tackled" works just fine, but "with joy" sounds odd.

No. 'Tackled' is not the right word.
You could say 'greeted' - that would work.
