Joey is “the little rescue who was born to make waves”. We rescued Joey from a very high kill shelter and quickly learned that he was a very special Wesite. He picked up obedience training and walking off leash with ease. He had a very calming effect on nervous rescue dogs and taught alpha rescues their place in the pack. It was an “easy decision” to have Joey join Westie Rescue of Orange County & Beyond’s pack. He is now WROC’s logo model.
In 2011 he was on the cover of West Highland White Terrier Club of America’ Annual Footprints Magazine. He is known as Surf Dog Joey and participates in the annual Huntington Beach, CA Surf City Surf Dog event. His picture has been published nationally and internationally and we believe that Joey is the only surfing Westie in the USA…perhaps even the world.
Joey also makes public appearances at schools and events educating children and their families on the importance of taking proper care of their pets. He is a great spokes-dog for rescues everywhere!
