Meet Julep, a sweet girl with a sad past. We pulled Julep from a kill shelter to spare her life. She had been seized by animal control for neglect/abuse from her former owners. When you look into her eyes, all you see is layers and years of pain inflicted by humans, and it breaks your heart. We don't feel sorry for her though, because that's not what this special girl needs. Julep needs someone who is going to ignore the fact that she has been beaten down, abused used as a puppy factory and treated downright shamefully by every human she has ever known until now. She needs someone who is going to show her compassion and teach her trust. When she first came to us, she was very distant in her foster home. She didn't crave human interaction or affection. Her mind was shut down and you could see her just go through the motions of every day life. She has made big improvements over the last couple of months and now enjoys affection in small doses. She has decided that a nice body massage is a good thing and will plop her big butt down in your lap for a back and neck rub. She has also decided that toys can be fun once she figured out they were for playing (which she hasn't mastered the art of yet). Because of the mental and physical scars that Julep carries with her, there are some very specific requirements that must be met in her forever home. For starters, Julep must go to an only dog home, without cats and small children. She must have a securely fenced in back yard also, and as long as the weather is nice, at least a kiddie pool to play in because water is one of her favorite things! Whoever adopts this sweet girl, must understand she is a work in progress and will take time adjusting to her new surroundings and people. A big part of Julep's rehabilitation has been daily walks and bike rides which has been very helpful in helping her learn to trust and enjoy the world around her, we would love for her to go to a home that would continue this on their journey with her.
