Jesse is a strikingly handsome and endlessly loving 49 lb. Lab mix. At just over a year old, Jesse gives you the best of both worlds. He’s got the spirit of a goofy puppy dog (which explains his energetic, playful, and snuggly side), but the soul of a calm adult dog (content to settle by your side for a power snooze or chew time with his bone).
This sweet boy loves to explore the outdoors, whether that be sniffing around the neighborhood or guiding you through a new trail. Jesse’s all-time favorite activity is playing with other dogs, so he would thrive in a home with some canine pals or a good dog park nearby. He can be a little unsure in new or unpredictable situations, so he would prefer a home without young children or cats.
You can expect to make plenty of new friends while walking Jesse, who is QUITE the charmer! As a social boy, he loves to meet new people—all it takes is one glance into his amber-colored eyes and a wag of his curlicue tail to melt their hearts. Nonetheless, he is first and foremost a dedicated companion to his family, and needs that same commitment to his growth and wellbeing in return. Jesse struggles with FOMO (and in this pandemic, who isn’t suffering from “fear of missing out”) but is proud to announce that he’s made great strides with his training thus far. The ideal family for Jesse has someone who works from home or will be around for a good portion of the day. With continuity in his “alone time strategies,” Jesse will become the big, independent boy he knows he can be.
Jesse walks well on a leash, is housetrained, sleeps through the night, and does wonderfully with commands, including sit, down, high five, come, and stay. He is highly food motivated and very eager to please, making him a quick learner. His heart is overflowing with love to give to the fur-ever home he’s been waiting for—invest a little bit of time into Jesse, and you won’t ever look back.
