Mixed breed SPAYED female, 1 year old and 40-ish pounds.

UPDATE: Juniper was not enjoying the shelter environment--she was shy and tentative. Then one of our wonderful foster volunteers took her home to Redwood Valley, and...WOW! Juniper is looking for her new home, and her foster person, Jon, has lots of first hand observations he can give us.

Juniper finds loud and abrupt noises scarey. She wants to connect with people, but is too timid. Life is hard for her here at the shelter. She shows no aggression, but she is nervous about being out in the world. BUT, LUCKY JUNIPER cuaght the eye of one of our dedicated rescue partners, Jon from Rocket Dog Rescue, and he took her home for the weekend. We've included a photo of Juniper and a doggie playmate cavorting around in the great wilds of Mendocino County! What's very obvious is how much softer Juniper's looks outside of the shelter! We'll have lots more to tell you about Juniper as staff and volunteers work with her and get to know her.
