Sweet and sensible our gorgeous jess arrived to the ark on the 16th of march, she found herself heavily pregnant in a rural Pound. The day befor she was making the 7 hour trip to us Jess whelped her puppies in the pound and within 12 hours was on a drip at the vet with mastitis. She is no longer covered with fleas and ticks and has blossomed into the most beautiful dog.
Jessie like all our other dogs is looking for a wonderful forever home. However the home Jessie is looking for is not the home we normally search for.
Jessie is nothing short of exceptional...
She is affectionate, loving, obedient, friendly, sensible, not in your face or over the top, hilariously funny, can catch a rabbit on the run, loves to swim, follow the 4 wheeler, feed the horses, enjoys going for a horse ride and without a doubt is one of the most loyal dogs I have ever met.
She came from an aboriginal community camp and because of this is fantastic with other dogs, loves all people big and small. BUT... Jessie is not used to the things the average pet owner wants to do with their dog, like sitting at a cafe, taking her to the dog park, walking her down a Main Street, riding in the car etc
Jess' ideal home is hobby farm a horse or cattle property (she doesn't work) but a home where she can supervise the goings on of the day, following the ute, helping harrow the paddocks, feeding out, sleeping on the job and enjoying the company of her humans. But if you aren't home she is happy to sit on the porch and wait till you get home.
Jess is not suited to a home with pocket pets, or smaller live stock cause that's much to fun to chase, however she does live with our cats and is happy to watch them come and go.
Befor arriving to our home Jess had obviously not been indoors before, for this reason she isn't overly keen on it, she comes in the laundry of a night with a treat and is invited into the house to sit in front of the fire as she likes. But she is more comfortable outside. A home that will allow jess to sleep in the laundry of a night is ideal to eliminate her getting up to any mischief. Her favourite spot is her day bed and she loves to wear her pjs.
Jessie really is a wonderful dog but finding a home suited to our girl set in her ways won't be east
