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 email@example.com
*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.
