    Jess, Staffie, DOB Jan 08

    [​IMG]

    Her Story: Jessie was found stray in Lancaster. She was micro-chipped so her owners were contacted and stated that she had been passed on to someone who they didn't have a record of and they didn't want her anymore. We were told she was good with children and dogs.

    Salient points: Medium build Staffie. Kind, lively nature, conducive for an 18 month old dog. Mixes well with dogs outside, but hasn't lived with another dog. Not for cats or small furries. Branch obsessed, but more about the breaking off soon discards, not a carrier.

    Advert: Jessie is beautiful with her big white bib and soft peach brindle coat. She is novice and needs initial work, but will pay you back in heaps in the future. Affectionate with people, loving with children, delighted to be out on her walks and meets dogs nicely on her lead. She was homed for 24 hours, but small furries a no! and was stressed with another dog in her territory. However delightful company and brilliant with the young children. She is a busy Miss and pleased to follow you about the house and get stuck into any action or non-action on offer! She gets excited around small furries, cats and even pond fish! For this reason we are looking for an only pet status for her. Her history is quite vague so would look to home her with children 10 yrs & above with close supervision over visiting young children. She is spayed and vax'd.

    Jessie is ready for her family. She is a heart winner and we know her forever family will delight in her if they know the breed, rejoicing in her youth and 'cheeky' nature! She is a beauty with a fresh smile and generous licks given on each encounter.

    "Please note that this dog is currently in kennels and is also available for foster until a 'forever' home is found".

    She wanted to go and have nose-to-nose conversations with all the dogs in the kennels. She is good with dogs no doubt about it!

    An update from Lynne who visited Jessie in kennels today ...

    “Oh Jessie ... Jessie got herself wound up today "...kennels damn kennels" she said..."let me out of here"! She was a raging bull and I the matadore . I simply had to let her take her wound-up energy out on the branches in the wood.

    Then she relaxed..

    Oh Jessie, so needs an active family and back into life please! She is such a beautiful girl who seems to be getting more and more pent up in kennels.

    NOTE TO SELF: Go over to Gatwick at least 3 times next week especially for our Jessie”!

    An update by a couple of volunteers who walked Jessie down at the kennels:
    Jessie was my last walk of the day....what a character...if you want a dog that will make you roar with laughter this is the one for you...first thing she did in the paddock was run round and grab every toy going..after she tested them all she decided on the punctured ball....she then carried it all the way on the walk...we got half way sat down got out the treats, but she just wasn’t going to give that ball up...she walked around me and then sat next me....ball still in her mouth...then off we went again. When we got back to her kennel I went in with her and sat on the floor with her...I got the treats out and this time she finally dropped the ball...I tell you this girl made me smile...if you were feeling in any way fed up this girl will bring you round....special lovely girl...

    Jessie had a great game in the paddock today. She entertains herself whilst smartly avoiding any association with the person in the paddock for fear her time will be up. Went and waited hidden behind the backgate hoping her curiosity would draw her into a corridor to trap her..no she was content as anything, to play with her sticks and balls. Such a delight to watch I kept giving her more and more time.

    But we had a journey ahead of us so I went and picked up a stick..oh :shock: oh yes that looks a lovely stick ?for me? On went the lead and she then settled in the passenger seat of my car luxuriating over the seat cover, warmth and fuss.

    Amy thought she was so beautiful as she showed her new kennel. Jessie is still waiting in kennels for her foster or forever home to find her.

    “Jessie had a great day today. Frances walked her and had a dog whistle. Every time Jessie lurched towards a branch, Frances blew the whistle, got Jessie to sit and gave her a treat. She repeated this over and over and it got to the point where Jessie would automatically sit and look for the the treat everytime Frances blew the whistle. Eventually Jessie would ignore a branch in favour of the whistle/sit/treat routine.

    It was very impressive to watch - and I think a real move forward for Jess as it shows she can focus on something else and learn to lose her branch obsession.

    Jess gets very admiring looks from passersby - she is a fabulous colour and a real show stopper ! Jessie has great potential - she is really keen to learn”.

    Hi there

    Thank you very much for offering to help Jessie. Unfortunately, she is based in Surrey and we generally look for fosterers within 1-1/2 hours away from our vets/kennels.

    Not sure where you are in Wales, but I can recommend Many Tears - they would very much welcome your help. There website is: Many Tears Animal Rescue - Home

    Thanks again.

    Sharon

    An update from one of our kennel walkers:

    "I shared my cheese sandwich with Jessie today before we went out for our walk.

    Jessie looking at my sandwich:

    And after eating the crusts:
    [​IMG]

    Jessie was an absolute dream to walk today. I walked her on a longer lead again and let her do what she wanted to do, which was potter along sniffing lots of tree trunks and branches. We stopped for a break and a cuddle. It seems every time we go out, Jessie is more affectionate - I got lots more licks from her today than last time we went out.

    Jessie's been in kennels for too long - it would be great if someone would give her a chance".

    An update from one of our volunteer kennel walkers:

    “Jessie was full of Va Va voom in her kennel and we set off at an enthusiastic pace - with Jessie leading from the front and her companions trotting up behind. Having said that, she doesn’t pull and is very responsive to voice commands and more than happy to stop for treats and cuddles!!
    This is a Jessie eye view of her walking friends today -

    [​IMG]

    There is something so endearing about Jessie...how she longs to be in a home and not have to return to her kennel! I think she would blossom in a home environment”.

    what a beautiful girl, i am in love with her. I'd love to offer her a home but we have an elderly dog and lots of small furries so it's not practical i am afraid...but i really really hope she finds a good home, little sweetie!

    Good luck and well done with what you are doing :)

    From one of our volunteer kennel walkers:

    "Jessie had a great time out today - away from the kennels yippee! She and 4 of her kennel mates went to Waggoners Wells which is a beautiful place to walk. She was perfectly behaved in the car, on the walk and sharing a sneaky chocolate brownie afterwards .... !

    Jessie is a delight to walk, she doesn’t take long to settle, walks at a good pace and radiates enthusiasm and a general sense of joy at being out. She went back to kennels with a smile bless her - something to do with the butcher's bone waiting for her I think"!

    An update from one of our volunteers on Jessie ...

    “Had a lovely long walk with Jess today. I feel there's so much more to Jessie than we see at the kennels. I just wish someone would give her a chance to prove herself.

    We had a bit of a rest half way round and Jess sat on my knee for a while. She was making a lot of little snorty noises, so I tried to copy her and then blew raspberries on her face and she loved it! I could squeeze her all day!

    She made a huge fuss of my mum when we got back to the kennel kitchen and here she is:”
