Jesse was a love bug from the beginning, despite illness and injury. Multiple re-tests revealed Jesse does not have Parvo, but he does have a broken leg. He will undergo surgery in the near future to correct the break, which had already partially healed incorrectly.
Jesse was snapped up by an adopter the first day, and is living in his forever home in foster-to-adopt status. His adoption will be final once he is healed and neutered.
Echo is now about 2 and 1/2. He has lived with his adopter since he was a few months old. His family has tried hard with him, but can't get him past his separation anxiety. If you are someone who is home much of the time, this loving, fun boy might be a good bet.
Hello! Some of you may remember me as Jesse’s Chance. In 2014, I was really, really sick and someone turned me in to PACC. They thought I had parvo. One of the PACC volunteers named Jesse worked really hard, calling several adoption groups, hoping to place me and save my life. She convinced SA GREYS I was a “greyhound mix,” so they agreed to take me.
Turned out I didn’t have Parvo and I recovered very quickly. I was adopted almost immediately and have been living with that family for two years. My mom works full time and my brother goes to school, so I’m alone a lot with my greyhound brother. I don’t like it at all, especially if I’m crated. I want to live with someone who is with me most of the time. I’d actually be even happier if I could be their only dog.
I’m happy, playful and loving. I’m also up for adventure. If you’d like to meet me, just complete an adoption application. I can’t wait to meet you!
Echo, The “Greyhound Mix”
