Story
Juniper is truly an amazing dog. We adopted her from the local animal shelter in Sept 2023. We already had a special needs dog as well as three cats. Juniper's first month was rough. It was clear she had been neglected and abused by her previous owner. She has scars all down her front legs and she had gotten pregnant. She had such a bad infection that she had to be treated before she could have an emergency spay to remove pus filled placentas. Juniper has trauma and anxiety. She loves and is very trusting of people, but she does not like other dogs. She has attacked our other dog - they just can't be together. With Juniper's anxiety, the other dog barking at her or taking her toy can set her off. That being said - Juniper is the sweetest girl you will ever meet. She is a huge cuddle bug, but is also happy to go adventure outside together. It is so clear she wants to please people so badly. It breaks my heart, but she needs a home without a dog around.
