Jupe is a 15-year-old sweet, female dog in need of a home on STX! She is a "miracle survivor dog" who was abused, neglected and abandoned by her first owner, then survived two wild dog maulings. She is now healthy, has all her shots and is a medium-sized,mixed-breed dog that needs a loving, caring home for her last years! She is good with other dogs, and mostly lays around a lot! Contact me for more info or to give her a new home!

Good Luck to Jupe in finding her forever loving home.
She sounds like she certainly deserves one for being such a sweet survivor.
Hope someone out there will open thier hearts and home to this pup.

(To me, they are all pups, no matter the age!)

I'd like to add a plug for adopting an older animal as the seniors are so often overlooked in favor of a youngster and end up being euthanized way before their time. "George" was an 18 year old "Island Siamese" when I adopted him from his family on St John who were leaving island and absolutely couldn't take him with them. His age was verified as they'd had him since he was a baby. George joined the rest of my feline crew at the time with great equanimity, became the patriarch of the family. He helped raise two abandoned foundlings who came after him; regally presided over board meetings of the St Thomas Humane Society when they were held at my house; stayed fast asleep during hurricane Marilyn while the house fell apart around him (he was deaf as a post by that time and the look of amazement on his face when he woke up to see the resulting devastation was hilarious); and died peacefully at home at the ripe old age of 22. laying out in a sunny spot surrounded by the other cats.

I'll add my hopes that the the old girl finds a loving home!

Hi ! Thank you all! I remember talking to the Animal Control about Jupe, as I was upset with the owner for neglecting him but getting a new puppy. Animal Conrrol said, "All day I drive around picking up old dogs in which the owner has a new puppy." So sad the throw-away culture regarding animals!!

Those people are morons and will do the same thing to the puppy if it chews their shoes, kids get disenchanted, etc., or when it gets old.
These are disposable animals in our islands, the reasons why our shelters are overfilled, why abandoned cats and dogs are more likely to be put to death than adopted into a forever home and what I least like about the west indian culture.

Don't get me started.......................:-X(td)

After living here almost all of my life and helping to rescue so many animals and being involved, I think I can aptly speak to this subject.
Granted, this is a issues that plagues many societies, worldwide but I am using this particular culture as it is MY point of reference. I am
not attempting to insult anyone but it is what we see or my point of view, if you like. IMO

Can you post a picture?
Have you tried putting a pic and info up at all the vet offices and message boards around the island?
