Junie's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Junie's Story...
Junie started her Forget Me Not journey by being a notoriously difficult to catch stray! She started off on a Friday being reported on the far side of Sherman Pass, running along the highway up the mountain. For the entire weekend, various people reported seeing her, and trying to catch her, as she made her way up to the top, then started down the other side. Finally, on Monday, she took refuge in a kind person's shop, and was able to be captured and brought to Forget Me Not - YAY!

We started the usual impound and advertising period for a stray dog, and her FORMER owner spotted her online and contacted us! Junie had been given to another family when her former owner had to move away, but obviously something happened that caused Junie to be on her own on Sherman Pass that fateful weekend... making her way back to Republic, where her former home had been.

Although her former owner is not able to take Junie to their current home, we were able to get all of her information. We had been calling her Bacardi, and when we found out her REAL name is Junie, she became SO EXCITED! It was a "you KNOW me, I LOVE YOU" moment for Junie. She is just over a year old and is a heeler-Australian shepherd mix. She was a 4-H dog from puppyhood, and knows sit, down, sneak, shake, come, stay, and can catch treats from the air. She is a smart and energetic girl, with good manners. She appears to be potty-trained, and doesn't soil her shelter kennel. Junie would make a good agility dog or 4H dog, and is hoping to be a fully integrated member of the family. Like most dogs made up of herding breeds, she needs to have lots of interactive exercise (jogging with a person, running alongside a bike, playing long and hard games of fetch, etc.) to keep her relaxed and happy.

Junie weighs just about 30 pounds, and has the heart of a big dog packed into a compact and athletic smaller body! She does well with other dogs and likes all sorts of people.

Junie comes with a 30-day money-back trial adoption period.

Spay/neuter, worming, microchip and all age-appropriate shots are always completed before placement, and are included in the adoption fee (suggested minimum $85; more gratefully accepted!)

Can't come to Republic? Don't let that stop you! We have monthly transports to both the Seattle area and Spokane, delivering adopted pets to their new owners. If you can add a little to your payment to help us cover our volunteer driver's expenses, that would be great!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Junie, a Republic Australian Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd for sale in Republic, or seeking a Australian Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd dog from a breeder in Republic.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Republic already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Republic breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Australian Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd breeders who help with Australian Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Republic paves the way for another one to be saved.
