Juno is a very handsome 1-2 year-old Husky mix male with a beautiful cream-colored coat and a winning smile. He came into a local county dog shelter as a stray. His owner was located but he said he had given Juno away and no longer wanted him. Apparently, Juno was a runner (not unusual for a young Husky!) and had spent most of his life outdoors. Unfortunately, he tested positive for heartworms at the shelter making it almost impossible for him to get adopted. The shelter reached out to us for help with him so Juno made the short trip to Canine Lifeline so he could get the lifesaving treatment that he needed. Juno did very well with heartworm treatment and adjusted beautifully to two months of cage rest during his recuperation. He has had no accidents in his crate so should pick up the housetraining routine quickly in his new home. Juno is an extremely friendly dog—everyone he meets, both human and canine, are fast friends of his. Being a Husky mix, we don’t trust that he will stay in a fenced yard so he has been on a tie-out when outdoors in his foster home. He might be safe in a yard with a tall privacy fence but he hasn’t minded the tie-out and when the weather is warm, he enjoys soaking up the sun. Juno is very grateful for the second chance he’s been given and is going to make an outstanding companion for one very lucky person or family. Juno weighs about 53 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, current on monthly heartworm preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week trial period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you’re interested in Juno. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 72 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.

Juno’s heartworm treatment cost about $750.
