🐾 Ready for Snuggles and Adventures? Meet Julie, Your New Friend and Faithful Companion!

🐢 This sweet 35lb, 6-month-old Pitty mix could be your new best friend! Julie is the biggest fan of cuddles you will ever meet. πŸ₯° Whether you're up for an adventure or having a slow day, she's ready to match your energy!

🧠 She is a smart, trusting, and athletic dog, although she's missing some initial puppy training. Julie is a ball of energy when she wants to be, and goes for daily runs to help, but the other 85% of the time she would prefer to be on top of you, burying her face into yours. 😊 Whether you're up for an adventure or having a slow day, she's ready to match your energy!

πŸ•β€πŸ¦Ί Currently living in a foster home with two larger dogs and two cats, Julie loves her dog foster sisters, often a bit too much! 🐾 She has shown a special bond with her Pitty foster sister, loving face licks and cuddles. πŸ€— Her Lab foster sister is her tug-of-war buddy, but Julie is also surprisingly good at playing by herself. 🎾

🏑 Her ideal home would have another pup who is old enough to show her the ropes but young enough to keep up with her playful energy. She would also make an amazing single dog for anyone looking for an incredibly loyal companion who will be attached at your hip. 🌟 Note: Julie doesn't do very well with cats or small dogs. A home without small animals would be ideal for her. 🚫🐈

πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ Julie loves a fenced yard, but is also an ace on the leash thanks to her daily walks and runs. πŸ• She is very food motivated and has become quite the pro at "sit." She's a champ in the car and when left alone, and is comfortably crate trained at night. πŸŒ™

πŸ’• Are you ready for a cuddle companion? πŸ’•
