POW! 'Tis the East and Juliet Is the Sun

POW! ‘Tis the East and Juliet Is the Sun

“But, soft! What light through yonder window breaks? It is the east and Juliet is the sun.”

— William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

  • KCAC’s Adorable, Adoptable Pet of the Week is written by Tecla Metzel of Kane County Animal Control.

Perhaps Shakespeare was inspired by KCAC’s very own Juliet, who is definitely a ray of sunshine!

In fact, you might catch yourself holding back a giggle when you first see this 3-year-old Chihuahua. Her ears stand straight up most of the time, so she looks as though she’s always listening.

Juliet1From afar, she almost looks like a tan-and-white miniature deer, but as she runs toward you, you can see her eyes have a soulful look that seem to search for that one person who might want to take the time to snuggle with her.

Juliet came to KCAC as a stray, but her spunky personality belies her seemingly difficult background. She may come across as a bit shy at first as she tentatively crawls into your lap, but very soon she is covering your face with kisses.

She doesn’t mind the company of other small dogs, but she definitely prefers interacting with two-legged beings much more. Spending time outdoors, taking long walks with her person and playing with her toys is the best way for her to spend an afternoon!

Bring a little sunshine into your life. Come visit with Juliet.
