Beauty's only skin deep, they say, but in the case of 1-1/2-year-old Julianna, her beauty is everywhere except her skin--or fur, in this case. Having inherited a recessive gene from both her mom and dad, this 22-lb. sweetheart has a permanent but treatable skin condition that causes her fur to mature in three days instead of the normal 30, so she sheds a dandruff of matted dog hair and parts of her coat can look pretty yucky. But listen to Julianna tell her story and you'll understand what beauty really is...Hi, my friend, I'm Julianna. I'm all about fun, fun, fun, and I love to run, run, run!!! I love to play and cuddle. I play nonstop with my foster siblings, and my favorite game is tug-of-war with toys. I also love to chew, but I only chew on dog toys, nothing else, except for the occasional collar belonging to one of my foster siblings. Nevertheless, my foster mom has nicknamed me 'Destructo' for my amazing ability to destroy any dog toy except a Kong. I think people are great! I love my teenage humans and my human grandboy, who visits often. He's 3 and we have great fun together. I also love all dogs--big and small. I don't chase cats, but I did get swiped at once when I was just trying to say hello. All this skin stuff really doesn't bother me much; it doesn't itch. I take vitamins for it, get a bath twice a week, and lots of brushing, and I must say I am looking stunning! I'm house trained and sleep in my kennel quietly every night. I'm not a picky eater, and I'm food motivated, so training me is easy! I've mastered a few commands like sit pretty, stay, and come. I walk on a leash fairly well, but I get excited and can pull sometimes. All in all, I'm one sweet pup who's looking for someone to love. If you're looking for love and can look beyond the outside to the real me inside, then I'm the girl for you! I'm waiting for you. Love, Julianna...p.s. Wanna see more pics of me?
