HI I am Jessie and I am an 8-year-old Treeing Walker Coonhound! I came into the rescue with my fosters from a situation that isn’t fully clear, but my fosters think I lived mostly outside, in a concrete kennel, with little exercise. I was used for breeding and if I was trained to hunt, I wasn’t likely used as a hunter, as I startle easy and gunshots would have scared me. But I LIKE to hunt and sniff all tree small animals. I LOVE hiking in the woods and would do it ALL day if someone would take me! They say I am an old lady dog, but I don’t believe them!
With this history, I need a home with a tall fenced yard. I like to be outside a lot. My foster mom has a doggie door which I love. But I lost those free access privileges when I went over her fence on a hunting expedition.
I am mostly quiet unless I am trying to get my foster brother to play or if I have something treed…. or the rare occasion my foster mom starts eating her dinner and forgot to give me mine first! This is a rarity for my breed, I am told!
I am affectionate and crave lots of pets and am learning that the house is a safe and comfy space, especially that dog bed my foster mom gave me….and the couch. I like that thing. I need an owner with a calm household. New people make me anxious at first, but slow treats and pets win me over easy enough especially if you let me come to you on my terms. I am good with kids and other dogs my size (I haven’t been around smaller dogs but may be ok. Right now, the neighbor dog comes out and just barks at me like he wants to eat me, and I get a little scared). While I am super gentle, small and super active children may make me nervous just because kids are so spontaneous and move so quickly. They also might open that front door and I would go on my own hunting expedition in a heartbeat.
I am still learning house manners like no getting on the counters and now that I am not so nervous anymore being in the house we are working on basic commands. I like treats and I am super smart, so my foster mom thinks I will be easy to train. I haven’t had any accidents in the house since I finished a medication that made me have to go a lot. I am also crate trained! I sleep nicely in my crate at night or when my foster mom has to go to an office to work.
I would love a calmer but active family that will give me all the pets I could ever want and all the hikes we can both handle. Will YOU be my new family? I am getting spayed on Oct 13 th but I can start meeting people now!
Last Day Dog Rescue now microchips all animals before adoption. Microchips are implanted between the animals shoulder blades and are a permanent form of identification. The microchips are registered to Last Day Dog Rescue with the adopter's info added once adopted. If the animal is ever lost and slips his/her collar/tags the microchip allows the finder to know who to contact if scanned for a microchip. Animals MUST still have a collar with tags on at all times. Per our contract, we take all our animals back if for any reason you can't keep your adopted animal.
Please understand the statements about this animal are based upon the foster home's evaluation of the animal. The animal might behave differently (negatively or positively) in your home. While the animal might be good with the current foster’s dogs, cats, children, etc., it may not be with your animal(s) or children. The animal may be housebroken or litter trained in the home of the foster but may relapse in your home. The animal is represented to the public as it performs in the foster home and any statements made regarding the animal are conditional to that foster home setting. Please understand that statements made regarding this animal are simply overviews and are not guaranteed.
The Petfinder.com system requires that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our animals. Visual breed identification in animals is unreliable so for most of the animals we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each animal as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our animals based on personality, not by breed label.
Thank you for looking through our list of animals needing forever homes and choosing rescue first. We appreciate you stopping by.
