Meet Junie!

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!

January 16, 2008

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.

Back for more rescue stories!
