Junebug has $200 sponsorship for rescue!
Junebug is such a love! She likes everyone she meets, loves playing with toys, and is an all-around super buddy. Give Junebug some love and she’s content to sit by your side, but she’s always ready for playtime, too. She’s a happy girl who’s quick to sit for treats and give you that great Junebug smile—you can’t help but smile along with her.
Junebug previously lived with a small dog and a kitten, and a variety of people, and in another home she lived with two dogs a bit bigger than her. While she does want a little space from other dogs while she is eating and wants to get to know a dog before he pushes in on cuddle time, she’s polite in expressing her concerns. Overall, she’s a super dog!
Junebug has been at the pound several times; between her second and third visits we noticed that she had developed a limp so when she came off her stray hold period the fourth time, Athenspets pulled her to provide medical evaluation and care. Unfortunately it appears Junebug was hit by a car, dislocating her hip, and not treated at the time. As a result, she developed extremely bad arthritis in her hip and could not use the leg properly. She has been patched up now (had an FHO–a really neat surgery that should fix the problem!) and is in boarding until we find her a foster who can see her through her recovery period–or an adopter!
If you can help with Junebug (by fostering, rescuing or adopting her), please let us know. While we are determined to get her into a *great* home, Athenspets does not have a foster or placement program so we need your help to help her!
