About Jessie - 0410
Eye Color: Brown
Weight: 50 lbs
Large Dog Friendly: Yes
Small Dog Friendly: Unknown
Cat Friendly: Likely no
Crate Trained: Mostly. We don't think she was crated in her previous home so she has been learning that crates are okay!
Housebroken: Yes, but when we come home from work and let her out of her crate she pees in excitement. We are working on that!
Energy Level: High
Reaction to New People: Friendly but a little cautious.
Kid Friendly: Unknown. Her foster family does not have children.
Training: Working on the basics, she knows sit. Leash skills are C+/B-.
Grooming Needs: Jessie has a standard husky coat which will require regular thorough brushing. You should aim for once a week or so, and more when she is blowing her coat, typically twice a year.
Fence: A fence or tie out would work, but a fenced yard would be ideal.
Solo or Siblings: She would love to have another dog to play with but would also do fine as an only dog with an active family. She was the only dog in her previous family.
From the Foster: For whatever reason, Jessie ate some gorilla glue and had emergency surgery to remove it all from her stomach on 10/10/23. This little lady is very lucky to be alive, as this glue expands in the GI tract and is usually impossible to remove. Because of the costly care she needed, she was surrendered to AAHMN. Despite having a major surgery, Jessie has done great in her recovery and has been a sweet, loveable girl. She has not tried to eat any more glue or other non-food objects, which her foster family is very happy about!
Jessie was an only dog in her previous family, but she has loved having foster siblings to play with. She has gotten along well with both resident dogs (one male and one female), even though they are older and don't want to play as much as she does. She also loves toys and is not shy about asking you to play fetch or tug of war! Jessie has gone on both walks and runs with her foster mom & siblings, and her leash skills are okay. She pulls a lot at first, but once the initial excitement is over she'll settle in after a few blocks and is much better. She's not perfect yet, but she is working hard to become her best self! She is a sweetheart and will make a lucky family very happy!
