Junebug is an eight-year-old female German shepherd who suffers from a heartless case of neglect. A huge, untreated tumor hangs beneath the sweet dog’s belly, and although it even interferes with how she walks,  her calm and sweet demeanor has not diminished.junebug-downey-cover-2

The dog’s condition has not been diagnosed, and she is in need of immediate rescue by an approved organization. Volunteers who have personally engaged with Junebug sing her praises. One comment includes:

“Her spirit is very gentle and warm. She will need a rescue, TLC and a forever home. Please help her find a safe and forever committed rescue by posting, tagging, and sharing Junebug.”junebug-downey-cover-3

Please share this dog’s plight with family, friends and social media contacts. No, she isn’t perfect, but her life so far has been one of neglect; doesn’t she deserve better?

    How cruel that she endures this tumor. With all of the animals rescued in Calif. She certainly deserves a second chance. I am in Nova Scotia Canada and cannot afford the crazy vet costs here. If someone will pay her medical bill and send here here. I would give her a home. This sweet dog deserves a happy ending. Saying a prayer for her.
