Journey is described as friendly, quiet, and reserved. She has lived with adults only but she has interacted with children aged 6. Journey is very playful and excited with children. She will begin wagging her tail and jumping up on them to play. When Journey notices other dogs, she will begin to wag her tail and pull towards them. Journey lived with a cat for a month and was tolerant and playful with it. She would chase the cat around the home.
Journey spends a lot of time lying down and resting. Journey likes to be in the same room as her owner. Journey isn’t bothered by having food removed from her mouth while she is eating. Journey will attempt to escape from the bathtub when she is being washed. She enjoys being brushed and petted. Journey will bark only if someone knocks at the front door of the home or if someone is standing near the door. Journey will greet visitors with a wagging tail at the door. Journey will allow strangers to approach her while being walked and even allow them to pet her. Journey is allowed to roam free in the home when left alone.
FOR A NEW FAMILY TO KNOW
Journey is house trained but will urinate slightly if she is very excited. Her owner noted that it would occur when a visitor would enter the home and begin talking to her in a high pitched voice and playing with her. She is accustomed to being walked 2x a day. She is allowed off leash and will return to her owner when called. Journey enjoys playing with squeaky toys and will play fetch sometimes. Journey knows the commands “sit, come here, and lay down.” Journey is afraid of thunder and will begin to whimper if she hears it. She eats Dog Chow or Pedigree dry dog food and canned food on special occasions. She sleeps in her large crate at night.
