Junie was rescued
by a kindly Peke breeder in New Jersey. Unfortunately the breeder’s job situation
has changed and she is downsizing – so Junie is looking for a new home.
We don’t know
Junie’s true age. The vet is guessing that she might be as old as 10 or 11 because
her teeth are not great and she is showing signs of developing cataracts (both
of these problems are known to happen in much younger griffs also.) Her health
is good. I would not be surprised if she is younger as she is very agile and scales
baby gates to get where she wants to be on a regular basis!
Junie is a
little girl – about 5 lbs. Red rough coat with cropped ears. She is pretty well
housebroken although she doesn’t much like going outside in severe cold – she
wears a little coat in the winter. She is leash trained and gets along very well
with the other mature dogs in the household but Junie doesn’t like puppies at
all (too much in her face) which is a problem in her current home. What Junie
really wants is a lap of her own and someone to love and cuddle with. She is a
sweet little girl and is looking for a loving home. Her pictures are not so great
as she is very camera shy.
Junie is located
in New Jersey
If you would like more information,
contact Vicki O’Neill. If you are
interested in adoption please fill out our Adoption Application.
Keep in mind that we prefer
to place dogs within driving distance of where they are being fostered. If someone
from outside the local area is approved for adoption, they must be willing to
fly in to get the dog and that can only happen if the dog is stable enough to
travel in the cabin with the passenger.

Junie has been Adopted!
I'm writing with sad news about Junie. She died on Dec 13. It's
taken me awhile to let you know- it still makes me feel so sad.
I miss her like crazy.
There are a lot of good things to be happy about though. We had
nearly two years together, and they were great years for both
of us. And despite her age related problems, she was going strong
'til the end. We think her heart just gave out. She was fine throughout
the night, but sometime during the early morning she quietly passed
on. I'm so thankful that she didn't have to suffer with a painful
disease or anything like that. We were really blessed in so many
ways. Every thought of her brings a smile, but as you well know,
it's not easy to say good-by.
I'm so happy that you picked me to be Junie's mom. I did my best
to be worthy of her- and I'm more convinced than ever that she
was some sort of angel (and I'm not what you'd call a religious
person). I do know that she graced my life.
