Juno

** Juno is now RESERVED. Thank you **

 

Juno has been through an incredibly difficult time recently following to the sad death of her owner. Thankfully we were able to place her straight into one of our wonderful foster homes where she is being given the time and care she needs to reset her life. This is what Juno’s fosterers say about her …

“Juno came to us very traumatized and it has been a voyage of discovery with her.

For the first couple of days, she was very wary of us and would bare her teeth if we went too close and only really responsive when being fed. We placed a blanket under the table this became Juno’s safe place, as she would not entertain a crate as her bed. We then replaced the crate for a comfy dog bed which she chooses to sleep in now.  A real breakthrough.

We have introduced toys which she immediately took to, nudging them to us for us to for play, even when given a carrot to eat she prefers to retrieve and chase – her Border Collie instincts shining through.

Juno needed to be clipped and bathed (many thanks to one of our volunteers) because her coat was extremely matted and causing her significant discomfort. Whilst she was very wary, she behaved well during her groom.

Whilst traveling in the car Juno is quiet and wears a seat belt harness. She isn’t too keen on jumping in and out, but she will allow us to lift her.

We have not encountered any issues with dog walkers, pedestrians, horses, traffic noise or trains she takes everything in her stride. All these were experienced on a walk on New Years day. Juno loves being outdoors, running and chasing balls, she walks to heel and responds very well to commands. She is true to her breed has the “eye” and a compulsive herding instinct.

Her trust and confidence in us has grown, she is a lovely natured girl.

Juno will require an active household, a couple or single person who loves the outdoor life.”
