This dog is located in Tennessee. FREE TO ADOPT (transportation fee applies for out of state adoptions)
Jess is fun-loving German Shepherd mix who adores people and enjoys playing with other dogs. Her bag of tricks includes the commands to Sit, Shake Hands and go for a swim. Jess absolutely LOVES the water and would love to get to go swimming regularly. She entices play with humans by sticking her Nylabone out one side of her mouth and races to fetch it if someone will toss it for her. She will share her food with you if you stick your hand in her bowl, and she takes treats politely. Right now Jess is being fostered in a private indoor/outdoor kennel, where she has shown housetraining courtesy ever since she was surrendered. At 2 years old and about 70 pounds, she is heartworm negative, has been microchipped and spayed, and is on preventatives for heartworms, fleas, and other parasites. She’s curious about cats but isn’t aggressive - though she may chase if given the chance. She loads quickly into a car and travels quietly. Healthy, playful, loving…this water loving dog is looking for a fenced yard and an active family who will play during the day and cuddle at night. Might that be yours?

Prior to adoption, all canines and felines are spayed or neutered, have received their age appropriate vaccinations, have been de-wormed for common parasites, and have received treatment for prevention of fleas and ticks. All canines over the age of 6 months have been tested for heartworm. All canines are put on heartworm prevention as soon as possible - this means dogs as soon as they are tested negative. Puppies are put on prevention immediately. All felines, regardless of age, have been tested for feline leukemia and FIV. Each animal receives a health check by a licensed veterinarian prior to adoption. Anything else found will be treated by our organization prior to adoption.
