I wanted to give an (almost) 1 year update on Journey ( formally journee). He has become the light of my life very quickly. He is definitely a very special boy. Everyone he has met has fallen completely in love with him. And it’s no wonder! He is smart, obedient, eager to please, has a goofy sweet personality and is such a love bug! He loves being with people, part of the “pack”. He has come a very long way. He use to be terrified of all men. He now is cautious but very very friendly. He is amazing with my nieces and nephews. He hated cars and now loves going byebye. It’s his favorite. He loves running at his “grandparents” who have 50 acres. He has made great strides with Zoey the cat (also a heartland alum formally sierra, adopted 4 yrs ago) while he is great with all animals she was hesitant. Now they are buddies. Nap together, watch birds together, and beg for treats together. He has not only brought love into my life but all my friends and family. He has grown so much and I am soooo thankful he is part of my family. Thank you heartland!!! He honestly is the best dog I’ve ever had.

When you adopt from a no-kill shelter, you save two lives. The animal you adopt and the one that replaces him.
