JESSIE is an active, affectionate ball-chasing young lady. She is approximately 2 years of age with a medium length coat who weighs in at about 40 lbs. She loves people. Pet her, love her, and feed her and you will have a loyal friend for life. About the only thing you can do she won’t like is not include her when doing cool stuff. She loves to just hang out. One of her favorite things, after she chases her ball around, is to jump up on the outdoor bench with her foster dad, cuddle up and get petted.
JESSIE was taken into the shelter as a stray, but we do know a little bit about her background. She is the offspring of a merle to merle match, which often results in birth defects. In Jessie’s case, she was born deaf and with an underdeveloped left eye. Her eye was recently removed. She is all healed up, and ready for her forever home. JESSIE is house and crate trained. With gentle guidance (and a waiting treat) she willingly goes into her crate and sleeps quietly all night.
JESSIE gets along with our easy going gal Sissy. Her doggie buddy should be similar as JESSIE can be a bit bossy in trying to establish their pecking order. After spending a couple weeks on leash restriction, she really enjoys finally getting to know Sissy off-leash and free. Our cats are pretty dog savvy and do not trust her. If she sees them, and they run, she will chase and she is fast enough to keep up and catch them. When stationary they hiss and try to keep her away. For her protection (one eye) and theirs JESSIE will need a cat-free environment.
