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.

You can also help save dogs like this one by becoming a foster, providing a rescue dog with a temporary home and giving them the love and care they need until they are permanently adopted. Every person who fosters is directly responsible for saving the life of a dog, because we can only save as many dogs as we have foster families available to welcome them into their homes. If you think you might be interested in becoming a foster and want to learn more, please go to http://foster.ddbnova.org and fill out an application.
