Introducing Juno - a pretty and shy 3 year old Alaskan Malamute girl who needs a very special foster carer or adopter to help her learn to be comfortable with people and be a part of family life again. 
Juno can be a sweetheart with the people she has bonded closely with - she loves their cuddles, praise and treats. It does take her a long time to get to feel comfortable with new people and to fully trust them. 
She will become uncomfortable if there is too much activity going on around her. She easily feels pressured and anxious so she requires a very quiet, easy-going home environment with someone who has a lot of time and patience. She will benefit from being given as much space as she requires to feel at ease with her new people.
Juno enjoys a good walk and she enjoys exploring her surroundings. She would best suit a confident single person or couple who are experienced with special needs anxious large dogs. She needs an environment with no children or visiting children and one where she can be given her own safe space away from visitors. We can offer trainer support to the special carers or adopters who want to assist Juno to have a normal family life again. 
Juno may be a good match with another male medium breed dog as a companion - she will benefit from having a playful doggy role model. As with most of our arctics we suggest a home without pocket pets or cats. Her new carers will be preferably local to the Central Coast, Sydney or Newcastle areas and will need to meet with her a few times prior to taking her home to build her trust in them. 
So if you have the confidence, experience and patience to make a difference to a lovely girl's future then please contact us about Juno

Note that a property check is part of the process to ensure fences are secure with no gaps. 
Our adoption screening is aimed to match the right dog to the right home and we make no apologies for the thoroughness of this process to ensure our dogs will find their best and last home.
