Name: Juno, after the goddess in Roman mythology. Although her dad is in the Navy, so we often get asked if she’s named after Juno Beach.

Nickname: J-Bear, June Bug, Juniper — and she’ll answer to all of those.

Species/breed: Golden Retriever/Labrador Retriever mix, so technically a ‘Goldador.’

Age: 3

Fave food: CHEESE! (she knows what the cheese drawer in the fridge sounds like when it’s opened and comes running every time)

Special tricks: If you say “boop” and hold out your hand, she’ll ‘boop’ it with her snout. She’s also a therapy dog with St. John Ambulance and (when it’s not a pandemic) is very good at being calm while sharing puppy love with seniors living in an assisted care facility in Dartmouth.

Best quality: She’s an excellent snuggler and back-warmer at night when her dad is away with the Navy and she gets to sleep in the bed.

Social media platform or handle, if available: Find her on Instagram @junothegoldador
