Adopt a Foxhound
Jessie the Dog needs a home
Approximate Age: ~6 years
Approximate Weight/Size: 45 lbs
I am an UNDERDOG because.... I am a hound mix! Hound breeds are very prominent in the rural south and usually the first to be euthanized at the shelter due to the overpopulation of this breed.
Location Saved From: Mercer County, WV
Jessie is a sweet, affectionate girl. She may seem shy at first, but warms up quickly. She is a medium-energy that loves to play and go on walks outdoors with her foster mom. She loves other dogs, so would appreciate the ability to socialize every once in a while (either at the dog park or with a neighbor dog).
In the home, she loves to snuggle and spend quality time with her person. Jessie loves food! She bounces for joy when she sees that it is dinner time. She is house-trained and has good house-manners.
Jessie tested HW Positive and has been treated for heartworms prior to arriving to DC - for more information on heartworms, click here: https://www.heartwormsociety.org/pet-owner-resources/heartworm-basics.
