Junie B was found living in "squalor" with her owner, who had Alzheimer's. She was about to be euthanized due to her condition, but one shelter worker agreed to work with her. A month later, we met her at an adoption fair and heard her story. She was so pitiful looking, we didn't think anyone else would take her. We also loved her attitude. We were looking for a senior dog to train as a therapy dog for our daughter who has autism. Junie B (named at the shelter) turned out to be the best therapy dog we could have asked for. She crossed the Rainbow Bridge on April 24, 2018 after a stroke. We will never, ever forget what she gave to our family. Our daughter planted new flower seeds on her grave this past week in Memorial.
