this little young, loyal and funny dog hopes that someone here in WA falls for him.
JULIAN was a stray dog that possibly was just left behind in a back yard, but when he wandered off he was hit by a car . He had a broken elbow and was left on the street. Animal Control picked him up and brought him to the Moreno Valley shelter in CA last end of June. Due to the fact that the shelters will not keep a dog that needs surgery (hence non-adoptable for them) he was put on the "at risk" list which means euthanization list. Rescue at that time are sometimes alerted - mostly it is the rescue network that then brings these cases to light.
nimalDefense heard about him and another dog and pulled them to safety. Julian had surgery and his elbow fracture has healed very well. When it is time to play with other dogs, or time for walk he acts as if nothing ever happened to him in such a young age (when he was about 3 months old). The future owner should look out for signs of tiredness and then just give him some time out- because he will not know when it is time to slow down. AND he loves to wrestle with other dogs - preferred even big dogs And he loves cats- I guess he thinks that cats are just funny looking dogs
Julian enjoys the company of 3 dogs and 3 cats in the home of the Founder of ADR.org on Orcas Island.
JULIAN is anxious to meet you.
He says that he will not move from your side all day, He is alert when someone comes to the door and he will make you smile and enlighten your day. The perfect household for him would be where he has "friends" - may be another dog or cat and a person that becomes his "buddy" - he gets very attached. And he needs a person that knows when it is time to cuddle and slow down. and not too much activity all day. I could very much also see him in a household with less active people.
when the evening comes around there is nothing better for him to sit next to you on a sofa or chair and lean against you- and when bedtime comes he LOVES to be wrapped up into soft blankets.
If you are interested in Julian please email me at ADR@animaldefenserescue.org and I will send you an application form.
