Josh Martin is the creator of the Terrier Owner blog and the Terrier Owner YouTube Channel.
He created this site specifically due to his journey with his female Jack Russell Terrier named Luna.
He figured that if he had thousands of questions that came to mind during the adoption, after the adoption, and about every day since, others must have the same questions as well.
Hence, Terrier Owner was born.
This website is designed to be a community of individuals learning and diving deeper into their relationships with their pets and families.
