Happy 1st birthday to Mama Juliet's litter! Many followed the story of Juliet and her 13 adorable puppies after they were born on Easter Sunday in 2021. One year later, the pups and their new families celebrated their special birthday with a doggie family reunion!
The plan for a birthday reunion was hatched after connecting through a Facebook group for the owners of Juliet and her puppies. In addition to Mama Juliet, four of her puppies attended the 1st birthday reunion: Loki (formerly Cornelius), Daisy (formerly Rosalind), Loki (formerly Puck), and Cornelius.

Mama Juliet was transferred to the HSVC through our friends at Kern County Animal Services. She was very pregnant at the time of her transfer and gave birth to her 13 puppies shortly after arriving at our shelter.
Above: Daisy, formerly Rosalind, was the runt of Juliet's litter. As you can see, she is not the runt anymore! This pretty girl has grown up to be a gorgeous and lovable German Shepherd mix.
Above: Good boy Lorenzo hit the jackpot when he was adopted by Breena, John, and Angeliese! Fun fact: he is also one of the only pups to keep his shelter given name.
Above: Loki, formerly Puck, was a favorite amongst our shelter staff for his sweet dark face and fluffy body. We are not surprised he grew up to be so handsome!
