Juliette is a laidback, well mannered, and affectionate pup who is great with other dogs. She loves to get belly rubs, sleeps at the foot of her foster mom's bed, and will let you know when she needs to go potty.  She is being fostered with multiple other dogs of various ages and sizes. She likes to play with the puppies, but is respectful of the older dogs who are not interested in playtime. She will make a great pup companion or playmate for another dog. 

Juliette is a quiet, reserved girl when she meets someone for the first time, but afters she has some time to get to know you, she is a friendly, playful, loving dog. She will do best in a laidback home with an owner who has some patience to give her time to settle in and adapt. She has a very submissive nature and would be great with older kids too. This sweet pup has a passion for stuffed toys, and you'll typically find her carrying one around her foster home. She keeps herself entertained, and will flip her toys in the air as she runs through the house chasing them...and is just soooo happy!!  

True to her Terrier nature, Juliette enjoys exploring and is always up for a good chase around the yard where any squirrel or chipmunk is deemed fair game.  She is crate trained, but her foster mom rarely uses it for her now that she's settled in. She's rides will in the car and is just a very sweet, well mannered pup who will make someone an excellent companion. 

Juliette just completed her heartworm treatment and is ready to start her new life. She's a young, healthy pup with lots of love to share with her new family. If you are interested in adopting Juliette, please apply today.

About Dogs Deserve Better of Northern Virginia

About Our Rescue Group...

Dogs Deserve Better, 2003 First Place Winner of the ASPCA/Chase Pet Protector Award, is a voice for chained and penned dogs, whose sadness speaks only through the eyes. As the days become years, many of these dogs sit, lay, eat, and defecate within the same 10-foot radius. Chained by the neck, they exist without affection, exercise, social interaction, and sometimes even basic nourishment. They live as prisoners, yet long to be pets.

Chaining is not only inhumane for dogs, but is dangerous to the community. Chained dogs, unsocialized with humans, can become very territorial of their tiny space, and anyone who wanders into this space can be attacked.

Would you for one second choose to live the life of these dogs? No matter what reason is given, the bottom line is that it is NOT ok to chain a dog for life. Dogs should not have to live chained or penned as prisoners, yearning for a place in a family, craving acknowledgement, respect, and love. They DESERVE BETTER, and we as caretakers have the obligation to provide it for them.
