Juno - Great Dane trained by Barbara Woodhouse who was seen THE AVENGERS series, an espionage adventure produced in England in the early 1960s.

Juno debuted on the 1962 second season episode "Death of A Great Dane" wherein Steed (Patrick Macnee) and Catherine "Cathy" Gale (Honor Blackman) investigate the death of an auto crash victim who turns out to have a fortune of diamonds in his stomach.
