Juno was rescued from the Prairie Paws Adoption Center in Grand Prairie. Sponsor Adoptions was able to raise funds for her broken leg and sponsored her heartworm treatment. She came home with a broken leg, heartworms, roundworms, pneumonia & doggy influenza. A specialist near Austin performed the leg surgery. We had originally thought that the leg had been broken for about two weeks. Once they got her into surgery they discovered that the leg had been broken for about 6 to 8 weeks and that the bone had already started to fuse back together. Because of this they had to re-break the leg, shave down the ends of the bone and insert a titanium rod and pins to set the bone. After about six weeks of healing she was up and running around the backyard. Next she went in for the heartworm treatment. She handled the heartworm treatment like a champ and after another six weeks of rest she was back up to full speed. Throughout all of the vet visits and tough treatments she has remained as sweet and docile as any dog I have ever met. We never heard her cry or whine and she is always wagging her tail when you walk in the room.
As you can see in the pictures she gets along GREAT with her brother and sister (Buzz the cat and Taps the dog) and all of her other dog cousins. She has taken a very keen interest in cat toys. Juno has no interest in squeaky chew toys or tennis balls but she will go nuts over a small stuffed mouse. We are so glad to have her as part of our family and are sincerely grateful for all that you and your volunteers did to make sure she ended up in a safe and happy home.
