Currently Living at: Foster in the DC region. Jessie needs an adopter!
Jessie is a big dog in a little package. The star of the dog park, she loves to play with other dogs, and especially loves larger dogs. (Her best friends weigh in at 70 and 100 lbs.) She is a rough-and-tumble girl and would love an active household that will give her plenty of exercise. This little firecracker has a softer side and is a big snuggler who would love to keep you warm in the winter. Jessie knows the sit and down commands, waits patiently for her dinner and is super food-motivated which indicates she’d be an obedience class superstar. She can be shy at first when meeting strangers, but give her a chance and she'll show you how great she can be. Jessie is extremely loyal, so once you win her trust, she will be your best friend and constant companion. She has even gotten the thumbs-up from her TV namesake, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) from ‘Breaking Bad.’ He took one look at her and said, “Awww, Batdog!”
Jessie has done very well in her foster home and hasn't had an accident in months. Of course, after moving into a new location she may need a little transition time.
If you are interested in adopting Jessie, please submit an adoption application at http://dcpawsrescue.org/adoption-info/adoption-application-dogs/DC PAWS Rescue does our best to provide accurate and complete information about our adoptable animals. Please note that we cannot make any guarantees about age or breed; we rely upon our rescue partners and their veterinarians to make those assessments. We also cannot make any guarantees about housebreaking and animal temperament, as animals can behave differently through transition and in different environments.
Our shelter partners provide a basic vet screening for each animal we rescue, which includes necessary vaccinations, deworming, microchipping, and spay/neuter (unless the animal is too young or otherwise deemed by the vet to not be a good candidate for surgery). Please note that this is not a comprehensive medical exam and as such, may not identify any and all medical issues, though our goal is to flag any obvious health issues through the basic vet screening. We share all medical records with adopters and flag any known issues prior to adoption finalization.
About DC PAWS Rescue
Our rescue is an all-volunteer, foster-based dog and cat rescue in the DC area. We rescue from Pickens County, SC (see additional information below), as well as DC local area shelters, such as Prince Georges County, MD and Wicomico County, MD.
We partner with a local rescuer in Pickens County, SC, who saves adoptable cats and dogs from the county’s animal control facility, which lacks the resources to facilitate adoptions to the public. Without a mechanism for local adoptions, all animals not claimed within the mandated hold period are euthanized. For the animals in this rural area, rescue is really the only lifeline. Our rescue partner not only works with DC PAWS to save as many dogs and cats as possible, but she has also established a successful spay/neuter clinic in the community to decrease the number of homeless and unwanted animals over the long term.
