About this J.P. Dog:
Julip is an 8 year old rescued Greyhound. Her former racing name was Goodbye Hottie, but she currently goes by a number of variations on her second name: Julip the Tulip, Jujubee, and the Pointy one.
“Julip was rescued from the MSPCA in 2009, after spending the first 2.5 years of her life as a racer. Once I met her, I was immediately smitten. She was a little skeptical, and spent our first moments together idly sniffing her enclosure. In time though, it’s become clear that we share a special soul-level bond.”

Does your J.P. Dog have any funny quirks, odd behaviors, or defining characteristics?
Once I came home and Julip was on the kitchen counter. To this day, I have no idea how she got up there, but getting down was a pretty ridiculous endeavor. It was so silly looking that instead of scolding her, I just immediately snapped a photo.
Other quirks: standing perfectly still in a narrow space so folks can’t pass, prancing, snapping and rolling in the grass to express joy, play bowing when you lift her leash, putting her head on the pillow like a person.
What do you love most about your J.P. Dog?
Julip has the sweetest soul I’ve known. I love watching the unadulterated joy when she runs, the way she expresses herself in ear movements, and the sweet way she cuddles with her head on the pillow.
Your J.P. Dog’s favorite outdoor spots in J.P.?
The arboretum and the pond are some of Jujubee’s favorite spots. She particularly likes to walk out in the pond and lie down while other dogs swim around her.
