June is a spunky Jack Russell terrier-Dachshund mix who needs a special family, one that can work with FAAS to help her recover from a serious back injury. After surgery for her condition, she was unable to use her back legs and spent about a year using a wheelchair. Since coming to FAAS, she has been in daily therapy to regain use of her hindquarters and she has made great progress. Initially unable to even wag her tail, June can now walk a few steps - farther if she's really motivated! If you adopt June, you will be working with FAAS to continue her therapy (paid for by FAAS). With luck and perseverance, we think some day June will be able to run and play like a normal dog! If you think you might be interested in fostering or adopting June as she continues on her road to recovery, please email Steve at sferguson@alamedaanimalshelter.org.
