Hello, my name is Jesse.  I am a lab mix puppy. I am a happy boy and love to be by my people.  I have been enjoying my time here in Minnesota with my foster family.  I have 2 kids to play with and 3 female lab/hound sisters to play with every day.  


So, let me tell you a little about myself.  I’m a puppy.  Obviously you already know that, so I probably don’t have to tell you what that means, but just in case….I like kids, dogs, going on walks and playing.  I also kind of like shoes, toilet paper, and stuffed animals…doesn’t everybody?!?  I LOVE stuffed squeaky toys…really any toys or anything that may be on the floor at the moment. Because this is the first time living in a house, I am a little nervous around new noises and sudden movements.  But I am getting better everyday with these things.   My foster mom says I’m typical for this age.  Even when I'm naughty, she doesn’t stay mad at me long due to my incredible cuteness.


So, I am looking for my forever family.  This foster thing is great, but I want free up a space to save another dog like me.  I’m not going to lie; I have some things I need to work on.  I am learning how to walk on a leash.  Potty training is going great, but just like any puppy I need to be watched to look for signals that I need to go out. I also can be jumpy and mouthy around kids which is also typical for my age (to me, everybody is a playmate).   I sleep in my crate at night (and sometimes with my foster family in a big comfy cuddling is hard to resist).  I also stay in the crate during the day when the family is away.  My foster mom thinks I should be able to hold it all day.  What am I forgetting? Oh yes, I am very treat and praise motivated.  This just means that training will be easier.  My foster parents are working on all kinds of stuff with me so I am a better family pet. We are starting with the "basics".  All I know is that when my butt touches the ground, I get treats and lots of is good.  It really seems like there are a lot of rules, but that’s okay, because I am willing to work at all of them.  I love this living-in-a-house-with-belly-rubs-every-night thing.  So I can’t chew shoes or the toilet paper etc.,etc…. I can handle it (eventually).  I just want a family of my own.  Are you them?

After the meeting, a home visit is scheduled and, if everything goes well with the visit, the adoption is finalized. A home visit by one of our representatives is required prior to finalizing any adoption, and we must meet all members of the household where the pet will be living sometime during the adoption process.
