Jules is a 5 year old mixed girl who has been through a lot recently. She lived with a family her whole life, but one day escaped from their yard and was hit by a car. Her family couldn’t afford her care, so they lovingly gave her to us. Jules needed to have her hind leg amputated due to the severity of her injury, but that isn’t slowing her down! She can still run, jump, go upstairs and downstairs – there isn’t anything she cant do!
She is a love-bug, playful and happy. She is potentially going to need consistent care due to her amputation, so her new family needs to have (or be willing to have) a positive and steady relationship with a vet. Dogs who lose a leg can require unique therapies; as we are not sure what her future needs may be, we want to do all we can to set her up for the best life. Jules is kennel trained, but doesn’t need to be kenneled in the home as she is house-trained and non-destructive. At her foster home, she sleeps on the couch all day when her foster family isn’t there. She knows some commands and prefers to be where people are (although when the household gets too busy she will go relax out of the way).
Her ideal home would be one without clutter and one with plenty of carpeted floors. This is because as she is learning to adjust to her new “tri-pawed” life, it is helpful to her to be able to get some traction and not stumble or struggle to move with ease. So, while she is great with kids, a household with lots of little ones’ toys all around would be really tough for her right now. When it comes to other dogs, she can be shy around larger males and needs to be around non-reactive pups. If you think you have the home and heart for this girl, then come on down and spend some time with her!
