June is a spunky Jack Russell terrier-Dachshund mix who needs a special family. This gorgeous girl came to FAAS about a year after she suffered a back injury. Her devoted family saw her through back surgery and outfitted her with a dog wheelchair. After a new baby joined the family, however, it became clear to June's owners that they could no longer give her the attention she needed. Heartbroken, they surrendered her to FAAS.

At FAAS, June good-naturedly underwent daily therapy sessions to regain use of her hindquarters. She made great progress in regaining feeling, first seen in her ability to wag her tail again! She can also use her hind legs if aided by a sling or if she's walking on grass, a rubber mat or other non-slip surface. However, she still needs help getting outside in time to do her business.

While undergoing therapy, June has lived in the FAAS offices during the day and gone home at night with employees. She needs a permanent home where she can relax and be showered with love and attention - and repay you with lots of love, cuddles and play time! June gets along great with other dogs as long as they are around her size and have been properly introduced.

June has a world of love and devotion to give. If you think you would like to meet this sweetie pie, please email Steve at sferguson@alamedaanimalshelter.org.
