It Starts with a Square

The Miraculous June!

BY Regan Hewitt

Hello friends, my name is June! A kind human found me scrounging for food and brought me to the Collierville Animal Shelter. The warm bath, regular meals and a bed I could call my own were like heaven after life on the streets. After I settled in, a human they called “the vet” looked me over and said that I was something miraculous: a heartworm negative street dog! I love being a miracle. 

It’s nice at the shelter and the humans are so kind. However, like all the dogs here, I am waiting to find my “forever home.” The humans here call me “super outgoing” and “the biggest sweetheart you will ever meet.” They give me so many compliments because I learned housebreaking and walking on a leash very quickly. Check out my cute white socks – when I go for a walk, they make my trot look so jaunty! I enjoy being active and going on walks, but I love cuddling with humans even more.

Show that lovely June is here.”  -F. G Sanders

I’m a two year old black-and-white girl. I’m not sure if you noticed but in spite of my young age, one of my eyes is a little cloudy. I can’t see out of it but it doesn’t bother me one bit. I never let it slow me down. At the shelter, they say it makes me special and that when you look deeply into my eye, you can see my shimmering soul. I have so much love to share! It makes me happy to think you could see that when you look at me. Because those of us who may look slightly imperfect still need and want love like any other dog. What makes a perfect match is what’s on the inside!

So, here I am, still waiting for my people to find me. I’m trying to be patient because I know there’s a wonderful human out there looking just for me. If you’re thinking about adding to your family, please consider taking time to meet the shy dogs, the scared dogs, the senior dogs, the ones with a missing limb, the dogs with boring colors and yes, one in particular with a slightly cloudy eye. We haven’t given up – we just need you. Maybe you need us too.

Xoxo, June
