Please contact Rachel Dailey ( for more information about this pet.Sweet stubby-legged girl looking for love JESSIE NEEDS A FOREVER HOME!!!! Name:  Jessie      Best Guess for Breed:  Basset/Retriever mix     Best Guess for Age: 3 years as of June 2021      Sex:  Female   Approximate Weight:  50 lbs.   Gets Along With: Jessie has done well with other dogs at the shelter. We have not seen her with kids but she can be tested. She can not go to a home with cats.   Currently Living at:  DC area foster home   Special adoption considerations: Jessie tested positive for heartworm disease and has been treated on 5/17/2021.  Heartworm dogs can resume full active and normal lives, but need to be kept calm for 4-6 weeks after treatment.  Heartworm is not contagious to people or other pets, but results from mosquito bites.  Heartworm, if left untreated, is life threatening, but after treatment, dogs that were heartworm positive should suffer no significant long-term effects so long as they are kept on a monthly heartworm preventative. We are happy to talk more in depth about heartworm disease and treatment during the screening process.   Jessie is Looking For:  A family to give her a loving home! Once she's recovered from her heartworm treatment, Jessie would love to go on long walks and meet the neighbors! In the meantime, she will accept scratches and treats for good behavior. She's ready for her forever home! What do you say? Aren't her basset legs the best? Can you just see her trotting alongside you on all those marvelous long walks?   What My Foster Says About Me:  Jessie is an amazingly sweet little dog. What she lacks in height she makes up for in personality, and she has the loveliest personality. She is equally happy to lay on the couch (expect her to lay her head in your lap) and to try new things and meet new people. She is very happy to meet new friends, and will wiggle up to anyone in her vicinity and become their instant best friend. She’s been learning a lot about how to be a dog, and has tried everything from doggy popsicles, sleeping in her very own bed, and even learning to swim in the river with a bunch of other four legged friends! From the moment she arrived at my home, she just wanted to cuddle, play, and generally make people smile. If you want an immensely loving pup who just wants to be everyone’s friend but your best friend most of all, Jessie is the girl for you!   Lucky Dog cannot guarantee any dog is housebroken.  All of our dogs are working on their crate training.  TO ADOPT:  The adoption fee for this dog is $475, which includes the cost of routine vetting, including vaccinations, spay/neuter, and heartworm treatment.  If you are interested in adopting, please complete the Adoption Questionnaire online HERE .   Lucky Dog Animal Rescue does our best to provide accurate information about the dogs we have for adoption.
