Meet Jess

Jess is a very intelligent and gorgeous girl. She is still fairly young with a spring in her step to match. Jess likes to be with people and try's her very best to please her owners in every way she can. She is a very quick learner who will make a fantastic, loving, loyal companion. Being a young gun, Jess would be best suited to a home that does not have young children or toddlers. She is very sociable with other dogs and would be fine to be an only dog in your family or have a doggie companion. She knows basic obedience, enjoying regular walks and training sessions. Jess has undergone recent reaffirmation training and has progressed well, she knows all her basics, can perform consistently Sit, Stay and Come all the while as on lead work. She has a high chase drive which is being worked on, so no off leash work has been done. She is food orientated which makes her a willing and easy subject. Yummy chicken is her favorite treat. She has been fine to leave throughout the daytime while I work but she must have toys or games to play with, otherwise (like all adolescent dogs) she will find something to amuse herself with. Don't then be surprised to come home to find something deserved her attention in your absence. Balls, pull toys, a Kong are enough to keep her busy for hours. It took Jess a good week to get used to us after coming into care so I'd envisage a settling in period whereby your rules are instigated and some boundaries are tested but a consistent, patient, caring attitude will win her over and you will be rewarded with a great family pet.

Jess was adopted on 25 July 2009 after 7 months in foster care
