Journey is a fun-loving, ball obsessed terrier-mix who’s around 1.5 years old, and the life of the party at our Happy Little Rescue! While he may take some time to warm up to new humans; this quirky, and affectionate little dude quickly turns into a big softy once he gets to know you! Because of this, he would do best in a home without kiddos under 12. Journey is a playful little guy, who loves other dogs of all shapes and sizes and would THRIVE in a home with another confident pup to learn from.
