Age: 11-years old
Weight: 23 pounds
Demeanor: Affectionate, sweet, quiet/mellow, playful, active/high energy, curious
Likes: People (including children), dogs are okay, playing tug-o-war and fetch (another one who just thinks fetching is da bomb!), giving kisses, going for walks, receiving belly rubs, sleeping in your bed, burrowing under blankets, treats, stuffed toys
Dislikes: Going for car rides, doesn’t care for being picked up but does tolerate it
Manners: Crate trained, leash trained, housebroken and knows a few verbal commands
Fenced Yard Required: Probably not as long as she gets plenty of walks and exercise with new family
Tidbits: Oh, Jessie! You are a little prize! So many excellent qualities! First, she is obsessed with playing ball (and often times the ball must be hidden to get her to stop) and enjoys going for walks immensely. She says don’t consider her if you aren’t going to do those two things pretty religiously (she’s a hoot isn’t she?). She will kiss you until you yell “uncle” but isn’t a big snuggler except at night (though that may change). Jessie likes to be in the same room as her people but isn’t necessarily a “Velcro” dog.
She does interact with the resident dog (who is younger) and the two often growl at each other during games of tuggy (though nothing has escalated). She seems to like other dogs but doesn’t require a home with one. Should you have a dog, it should be polite. Jessie tends to “door dash” which would be a concern for folks that live near busy streets.
The adoption fee for this dog is $150.00 which includes altering, heartworm testing, vaccines, micro-chipping, harness, leash and identification tags. This dog is being fostered in a private home and is not available for viewing
