Jess is a tri-color setter girl weighing in at a svelte 38 pounds. She learned housetraining in just a few days. She even does her business on schedule with her two foster siblings.

Jess is a "leaner"; she really leans in for snuggling and petting. Jess plays with every toy we have and loves squeaking things. She also loves to look out the window and watches TV too! Her other favorite thing is getting pets. She is so loving and affectionate and it's so easy to pet her because she's so soft!

Jess quickly learned the house rules. She knows what furniture she's allowed upon – and when. She knows it is okay to get on the bed during the day, but to stay off at night. Jess learned "sit" in a day, so she'd probably be really good at learning tricks.

Jess was our first foster to get the resident Princess (aka Heidi) to play with her. They run and chase and smell and butt noses. She is full of energy and loves to be outside running and keeping critters in line – up a tree if possible. Her ideal family will have a yard big enough to do some running. She's working on "come", but has trouble if she is too interested in what is going on outside.

We took Jess to a Doggy Day Care. She had a great time there with all her new friends – she's quite a personality! Click on the links to watch Jess play:

Jess's pictures don't do her justice ... she's not shy the rest of the time, but she sure doesn't like the camera. So, it has been really hard to get face shots or good pictures of her doing her normal things. Every time I point the camera at her, she runs. So, let me just say that she is really cute and adorable and does so many funny things, but I just can't capture it all on camera.  Watch camera-shy Jess on video!

She is trustworthy enough to have the freedom of the house when we leave. She doesn't mind the crate, but now she spends the night sleeping in her own bed, like her foster siblings (Jess LOVES being in her soft bed).

Jess is smart and sweet and would be great with another furry sibling or two. Jess will bring nothing but love (and leans) and snuggles and happiness!
