Jessica is a 4 year old orange field girl who is all about “the field.”  There is always something in the backyard to capture her interest and keep her moving. We call this sporty girl Jessie because her nickname is more fitting of her tomboy attitude.

Jessie is a high energy girl who will need a five foot physical fence in her adoptive home.  She’s happy to run around our fenced yard, but when there are squirrels on the other side, she gets so excited that we can envision her making it over a four foot fence.   She would benefit from a yard with room for her to run.  We have a third of an acre which gives her plenty of room to move.  As excited as Jessie is to get outside, she will sit and wait at the door when asked, and she is very good about standing to get her paws cleaned before coming in the house.

Even though Jessie loves the outdoors, she calms down once she is inside.  She’s happy to settle on a dog bed or the sofa, and she sleeps in a dog bed next to our bed.   She has free roam when left alone in the house.  Jessie is fine with all the dogs in her foster home.  She will engage in play with the other dogs and sometimes will toss a toy around by herself.  Jessie lived with a cat in her previous home, but given her reaction to squirrels, she most likely will chase a cat in her new home, at least at first.

Jessie is looking for a family who can keep up with her lifestyle.  You don’t need to run with her, but you need to be willing to let her run to her heart’s content out in the yard.  Don’t worry, Jessie will bark at the back door when she’s ready to go out.  This spirited girl isn’t about to let anything pass her by!


Laura Lin hopes that sweet and pretty Jessica finds her forever home soon!
