Facts about Jessie Heart

  • Breed: Rottweiler/Cattle Dog Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10454031

Jessie is a happy, even-tempered 3-year-old Rot/Cattle Dog mix who was rescued from a high-kill shelter in Houston. She is now in a Seattle area foster home, waiting for her forever family! She is a cuddly girl who likely had a very good home at one  point as she seems familiar with human home life. Great with all people, Jessie is sweet, playful, intelligent, and loves human companionship. A home that actively takes walks/runs would be ideal for her as she is full of energy!

Jessie will require a dog-savvy owner who is confident setting boundaries and monitoring interactions with other dogs.   She can be particular with dogs and has exhibited some reactiveness/fence aggression. Because of her breed, she has strong herding instincts and occasional mouthiness. While she has interacted well with small children in the past, an adult-only home or one with older children is recommended due to the herding breed.

Jessie crate-trained and house-trained - her basic commands and leash-training is currently a work in progress with her foster.

Jessie was treated for heart worms but is now healthy! *(see medical note)

ADOPTION INFO: Adoption fee is $595 -- this includes spay/neuter, transport from Texas to Seattle, current on all Rabies/DPPV/Bordetella vaccinations, health certificate, microchipping, grooming, boarding, and any other unforeseen costs/treatment. This fee not only contributes to Jessie's rescue and care, but for hundreds of other high-risk dogs every year.    If you are interested in Jessie, please email info@gingerspetrescue.org

*Medical note: Jessie tested positive for Heart Worm and received the fast kill treatment. This is the most effective treatment for heartworms and she is considered healthy now. She will need to be retested in December and that cost will be covered by Ginger's Pet Rescue. No additional treatment should be necessary, but if it is, it will be covered by the rescue. 

About Ginger's Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Ginger’s Pet Rescue is one of the largest non-profit pet rescue organizations in Washington state, and we specialize in saving Death Row Dogs. Our mission is to give homeless animals with no hope the life they deserve through rescue, foster and adoption. We rely on a large network of fosters in the Seattle area, who provide our dogs with love and care during transition from rescue to adoption. We do not have a physical shelter location; to meet the dogs in our rescue, contact us to connect with a foster or join us at an adoption event!

Ginger’s Pet Rescue is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We rely solely on the support from adoption fees and donations to help us provide for the ~100+ dogs in our rescue at any given time.

How We Rescue

We take in dogs from local families in need, in state and out of state shelters, and we also work with overseas rescue groups on occasion. We do not discriminate – we rescue dogs small and big, old and young, healthy and sick, purebred and Heinz 57! Our belief is that every dog deserves a forever home.
Our History

Ginger’s Pet Rescue was founded in 2006 by Ginger Luke after saving one Dachshund’s life turned into a life-long endeavor. The organization is dedicated to providing great care for our dogs and adoption efforts!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Ginger's Pet Rescue has all our dogs in foster care.

You must complete an application and then you can meet the dogs by appointment with the foster dog parents.

You may also come to one of our adoption events to meet our adoptable dogs and fill out an application in person: www.gingerspetrescue.org/events

Our Adoption Process...

The first step to adopting a pet from Ginger’s Pet Rescue is completing our Adoption Application and email to ginger@gingerspetrescue.org or submit via our Contact Form on our website. This application will allow us to know more about your family, what kind of pet will fit best and your home, and whether you will be a good match for one of our dogs. Please include the dog(s) you are interested in on the application. We review applications upon receipt and will reply as soon as possible, usually within 1-2 days.

Adoption fees range from $300-$700 depending on a number of the factors, and adoption fees are what allow us to continue our rescue, as our primary source of funding.

If for any reason the dog does not work out, we are willing to take the dog back and refund your adoption fee less a $100 rehoming fee.
