[ADOPTION PENDING. NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS.] Say hello to . He's a longhaired (roughcoat) young dude who just turned three years old. He's neutered, housetrained, vaccinated and microchipped. And he has been started on monthly heartworm and flea/tick prevention. Journey landed in Rescue through no fault of his own. His family loved him very much but they were sucker-punched by the economy and felt that they couldn't adequately provide what he needed. They're good folks and we were happy to help them (and Journey).
A friendly fellow, Journey enjoys playing with a ball or a frisbee or a stuffie, going for car rides, and romping with his humans in the yard. He has been with pre-school aged kids, and he was great pals with the family's other dog, a Jack Russell Terrier. He has not had much exposure to cats but has a pleasing personality and would likely be okay with a feline. There's not a lot that spooks this big boy except the smoke detector alarm. (Hey, NO ONE likes the noise those things make.)
Journey is negative for heartworm, Lyme disease and ehrlicchea but did test positive for anaplasmosis, which is a tick-borne illness. He completed a three-week regimen of antibiotics.
Journey initially pulls a little on leash but he settles into a pattern and then walks pretty well. He knows a few commands, but like most Saints he can be "selectively deaf" when he wants to ignore you. He will be a good dog in a home with kids, maybe another dog, and a fenced yard where his family will play with him. He's a happy, happy boy.
