Hello, my name is Jericho. I am a young and usually quiet adult male Terrier mix who is fearful/skittish of children, loud noises, a lot of commotion, new places/people, and quick movements. In fact, I used to be a fear biter, but my foster family has helped me learn to accept attention and pets…I especially enjoy butt rubs and having my hair brushed. I am even a great snuggler and when I’m not cuddling with dad on the couch, I enjoy cozying up in the bed with my foster fam including my Dachshund buddy Baxter. Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention that I love playing with toys too and am an expert at ripping the squeaker and stuffing out of them! Hee, hee!!

I am still getting comfortable with leash training, but I have made great progress and am now a really good walker. That said, getting my harness and leash on is still a bit stressful for me but I tolerate it because I LOVE going on walks and sniffing everything! Hee, hee!! So, you can see that I am trying extremely hard to overcome my fears and although it has been very tough, I’m not giving up!! I just need a family who is respectful of my boundaries and WILL continue my training once I get to my new home. 

Anyway, I have not met any cats, but I LOVE to wrestle, play, do zoomies, and run, run, run with other doggies so I will need a companion and a fenced yard at my new home. Not only do I enjoy playing with my canine buddies, but I also look to them for guidance and hope they will help me overcome my fears. I am potty and crate trained but mom and dad rarely put me in the kennel anymore because I’m not destructive and the more I’m with my people the quicker I will learn to trust them.

All I really need now is YOU…a patient fur-ever family who promises to love me unconditionally and NEVER given up on me. So, if you’re looking for an amazing cuddle companion who will be your best friend for life, then I you’ve just met your perfect match! I promise I’m worth it and we will make amazing memories together! Love, Jericho

Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared. Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans. In turn, they require another companion dog and/or a fenced in yard in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a particular dog whose bio states those needs and do not currently have them, please understand that your home might not be the right fit.  Please use the filter on our Adoptable Dogs page to find the perfect match for your home.
