Jai dee • Sweet-natured
June is a sweet yet sensitive dog who is looking for a patient family to help her come out of her shell.
June and her sister, May, were found on the side of a busy junction close to the Farm, nervous, skinny and riddled with parasites. Only a few months old, the two siblings were discovered by a local, traumatised by the loss of their mother and the other puppies of their litter, who had been hit by oncoming cars.
After carefully coaxing the puppies to safety using food, June and May finally allowed us to come close and we were able to bring them back to the Farm, so that we could treat and care for them. Sadly, both girls developed tick fever at the shelter, as well as a skin allergy, and they spent the first couple of months at the Farm, in quarantine, under close watch.
It’s been quite the journey for these two cuties, but fast forward a few months and June and May, despite their harrowing start in life, are finally coming of their shells! We are really enjoying watching them blossom each day into beautiful, sweet-natured dogs and can’t wait to see them thrive in a home environment!
June is a calm and gentle puppy whose favourite pastime is to spend her afternoons basking in the sun with her sister. She enjoys tumbling and zooming around with her friends at the Farm but knows when to stop.
A slice of heaven for dogs, the vast space at the Farm means that June can take herself off for alone time away from people and other dogs when she feels like it. In fact, the majority of the day for June is spent snoozing under a tree and passing away the day until dinner time.
Much like her sister, June enjoys a quiet life and is equally food obsessed – as you can see from their little pot bellies! June’s love for food will certainly come in handy in her new home when teaching her new tricks.
Though June is the more confident pup of the two and warms up to people after spending time with them, June’s early experiences as a puppy of having to fend for herself means that she can be wary of new people when she first meets them.
June doesn’t actively seek out affection from people as some other puppies might. But her and her sister have come a long way since their rescue in May and we are sure that with more exposure each day to new experiences and new people, we will continue to see them both flourish!
June's perfect home
An experienced adopter who lives a quiet life would be an ideal match for June, who will need some time and patience to adjust to her new life. In light of this, we would rather place June in a home that doesn’t have lots of activity or young children as we feel this could be too overwhelming for her. She would thrive in an environment that has routine which will help her to feel safe and secure.
June has a submissive presence around dogs so could very well suit a household with a calm and well-trained resident dog who can show her the ropes and help build her confidence.
June has had a tough start in life and any new adopter will need to mindful in making sure that they are taking things slow and at June’s pace.
June’s sweet nature will make her the perfect canine companion and her fixation and love for treats will certainly make training entertaining and enjoyable.
Though June engages in playtime with her friends at the Farm, she would much rather spend her days snoozing – which, after all she’s been through, we can all agree she deserves!
