The first bunny to join Zootopia's police department. Since childhood, Judy had harbored a dream to become a police officer, solely for the opportunity of helping those in need and to make the world a better place. She cares deeply for the well-being of others, and is more than happy to offer a helping hand to everyone.
She was found as a stray and taken to the city shelter by animal control. She was obviously used as a breeding machine and was in bad shape when she arrived to our program. She has since nicely blossomed physically and emotionally.
Adoption Fee: $150
Breed: Pit Bull/Amstaff
Age: 3-7 yrs
Weight: 45-55 lbs
Color: Blue & White
Judy was mistreated and over used as a breeding machine, producing puppies all her life. As a result, she has developed mild arthritis and minor hip soreness. We are currently giving her glucosamine supplements and the vet expects to see improvement over time. Judy is not necessarily a candidate for surgery but she might not become a top athlete either.
UPDATE: A month in, and we already see great improvement. She's gained weight, improved her mobility and doesn't seem sore anymore. Feeling better has brighten her spirit too. She's still not a bouncy-rabbit (no pun intended ;-)) but she's a happy gal who's obviously relieved to be feeling better.
Those silly ears and that sweet face!! Judy is a little smaller than average, short but stocky. She's quite the little tank but very easy to handle.
Living-it-up at the MPR shelter. She loves it with us. She had a hard life as a neglected breeding-machine before so she knows a good thing when she sees it. She's a very grateful dog, well behaved, and uncomplicated. Quiet in her kennel. She uses the doggy-door to relieve herself in the outside run if needed. She keeps her bedding nice and neat, doesn't chew her blankets and is not reactive when other dogs walk by her kennel. A polite and patient little angle :-)
She's soooo sweet! Timid and reserved with strangers but very loving. She wants to be right next to people and loves to cuddle even though she is unsure at first. She most likely had never been loved before so she's still in the process of adjusting to what it feels like to be well-cared for. She is filled with gratitude.
She is slowly starting to come out of her shell, but remains cautious. Her level of energy is on the low-side right now but we hope to see her become a little more active as she gets more comfortable with people and her new environment. She is definitely not a spastic dog though and will probably always be easy-going and calm.
Behavior with people:
She loves people but she's still somewhat reserved, although coming out of her shell a little more everyday. She is considerate, gentle, and respectful. We dont think she will ever become a rowdy dog. She's humble and very mellow around people.
Behavior with children:
We haven't seen her with kids as of now, but she's such a darling that we can't imagine her being anything but sweet. That said, Juju is a sensitive dog who's likely suffered maltreatment before. For her sake, we prefer a home with adults, or kids old enough to understand how to treat an animal respectfully and gently.
Behavior with other dogs:
Unknown but we were told she did very well in a playgroup at the pound. Since she's been with us, we can see her perk-up a little bit when she senses a dog nearby. We think she could do well in a home with an easy-going male.
Behavior with other animals:
Unknown. She's seen squirrels in the yard and had a mild reaction.
She is naturally easy and well-behaved. She's sensitive and aims to please. She keeps her kennel clean at the shelter and her bedding neat.
Judy is just so sweet and docile. A very manageable dog who just wants to sit at your feet and soak up love. She's no trouble at all and would likely fit in just any household as long as they aren't expecting a high energy dog.
