Jesse is a sweet boy who is adjusting well to his foster home. He loves going on walks and prances as he explores the neighborhood. He seems to love both his foster mom and foster dad and is getting along well with their other dogs. He is not comfortable around children.

Jesse came to foster care with a long history of ear infections. He is getting treatment and his hearing is being evaluated. Currently his foster family approaches Jesse from the front to get his attention before picking him up or indicating it’s time to go outside, etc. Jesse is responding well to this practice. He needs clear communication like visual cues and being sure you have his attention.

This adorable boy is quite the lover of the great outdoors. He explores his new fenced yard, is excited to go on walks and loves sunning himself on the deck. Despite appreciating the outdoors, however, he doesn’t like getting his feet wet.

Jesse is a fairly quiet dog. He gives a couple loud barks when someone new comes into the house, but then he quiets himself, as though he’s done his job in giving his family notice.

Jesse likes going into his crate at times for a nap or just to get away from it all. At night he prefers to sleep at the foot of the bed. You can see in the video below that Jesse is quite able to entertain himself by playing with toys, tossing them into the air. You can’t help but smile seeing this sweet guy enjoy life.
