Jessie is a very playful, fun-loving dog. She can hike for hours and loves to retrieve balls and wrestle with her squeaky toys. She is three years old, housebroken and crate trained. Jessie weighs just over seven pounds.
She is currently being fostered in a home with three other small dogs, and a cat. However, she shows NO interest in the other animals, and would probably prefer being the only pet in the household.
She is inquisitive, smart as a whip, and very toy and food motivated. However, Jessie is selective about the humans she likes, and does not tolerate rough or invasive handling from people that she does not know or trust.
With her Grateful Dogs Rescue foster, she is an absolute delight. She is attentive, affectionate, and playful. She stays close by when walking on a trail or in the woods off leash, and is very eager to learn new tricks. She does suffer from separation distress, and will whimper and whine when left in the car, or in an unfamiliar place, but is not destructive (she does not like riding in the car). However, when the Grateful Dogs Rescue volunteer foster leaves for work and leaves her at home she is quiet. Her strong desire to bond with one person would make her an ideal companion for a single person who enjoys having a devoted canine companion.
Jessie is eligible to have her adoption fee waived if adopted on the June 9th and 10th weekend as part of Maddie's Matchmaker Adoptathon.
