JESSIE HAS BEEN ADOPTED! THANK YOU FOR YOUR INQUIRIES!
Jessie is a purebred Airedale who needs a new home. She will be a mere two years old in July.
She loves being with people but, like most young Airedales, can be easily distracted by other interesting events — a dog to play with, a leaf to chase….
She is currently being kenneled and has become great friends with two male dogs, but we have yet to confirm whether she can do as well with female canine companions.
Airedales are, essentially, dogs bred to hunt small animals. Thus, Jessie has a strong prey drive. We cannot recommend her to a home which she must share with cats, rabbits, small rodents and similar creatures. A securely fenced yard is required as well.
In her previous circumstances, Jessie was allowed to run free and can be described as something of a free spirit. We believe she will need lessons to teach correct leash behavior and are looking into having a trainer offer an assessment and, perhaps, some training to encourage respectful on-leash behavior.
Jessie is spayed and vet checked. Her blood chemistry is good. However, she may have a minor problem with her left stifle. We are waiting to see if this may be only a slight sprain. She has been groomed and looks wonderful!
Jessie has the funniest ear which sticks up. This gives her a very quizzical — and unique –appearance.
