With her smooshy face, beautiful eyes and floppy ears, Jessie is a tough dog not to love. She's a low maintenance, chill and very polite young lady who's quiet in the home and won't even get on the furniture unless invited. She also gives great kisses and would love to be someone's loyal companion!

Jessie looks to her person for guidance and is very obedient, responding well to gentle corrections. She's a shy girl who's still trying to figure out this big world, but she lets her guard down in the home and has done well on sleepovers with her volunteer friends. She did great when meeting her virtual foster's husband, is easy to please and will play with any toy you give her. She enjoys fetch or tug of war, is a big fan of squeaky toys or is content to just chew on her bone. She's smart too and didn't touch any of the pillows or shoes that were right by the toys.

Equal parts lazy and active, Jessie is down for whatever you are, whether that's just chilling at home or getting out for walks or runs. For the most part Jessie just follows her person from room to room and naps, but if you toss her a toy she comes alive! She'll play around for 5 or 10 minutes, give you some kisses, then go take another nap. Jessie also enjoys going to playgroup with her canine friends at the shelter and could go home with a well-matched doggie sibling.

Jessie doesn't ask for much - just a home with an active person who will make time to play with her and get her out for some exercise. If you think you can handle all that, come meet this great pup!
