What a wonderful girl Jessie is becoming. Jessie has the gentle sweet spirit of an Angel, that is the only way to describe her. She does not meet people with exuberance but with a calm slow steady walking up to people for a meet and greet tail wagging all the way. .
Jessie loves her walks. Because of her background she can startle at new things on a walk, ( mostly loud unexpected noises or a runner coming up behind her) I have her tethered to me with a leash around my waist so if she does get frightened I don't have to be concerned that the leash could come out of my hand. She walks like a dream on a flat collar either behind you or by your side. When I walk her with two other dogs it is easy to forget she is there until she sneaks her head under your hand for a pet.
Jessie sometimes reminds me of a cartoon character because she has the cutest ways of expressing her joy for life in her body contortions.
I think Jessie would even make a wonderful therapy dog because of her calm nature.
Every once in a while you foster a dog that captures your heart and you don't think you could ever part with them, Jessie is that dog for me. I have wrestled with keeping her, I know this is a good home but there is one thing I cannot provide for her and that is another young dog to play with. She lives with two senior dogs and she respects their space and everyday does the best dance and play bows to get them going but after two minutes of play they are done. Jessie has a foster brother who is eight months old and they play, wrestle and chase for hours but he will be going to his new home soon and she will be without a playmate.
A young playful confident dog is what is required for her in her forever home, no compromises on this.
If you think you can provide what Jessie needs please put in your application.
