    Fun loving, full of energy, young lady looking for a place to call my own!

    Hi my name is Jess and AARCS thinks I’m about 8- 10 months old. I’ve had a tough start in this world but it hasn’t stopped me from lovin’ life and now I’m looking for a special forever home. Sometime as a young puppy I broke my leg! My foster mom says I am a really tough cookie because by the time I got to AARCS care my leg had healed. Without any veterinarian care I survived on my own with a broken leg, now one leg is shorter than the other! HA doesn’t slow me down though! I love playing with my foster brother and I could chase him around and wrestle all day. As tough as the world has been on me I am still a happy young pup who loves meeting everyone, going on new adventures, playing with toys and meeting other dogs. The veterinarian team at AARCS says they think my leg doesn’t hurt or bother me and that it is completely healed. I enjoy being pet and hanging out with my foster mom, dad and occasionally the little people that come to visit. I haven’t had a lot of time to get use to the little ones but when I see them I get so excited I jump up, lick their faces and even knocked one right over! I’m learning to walk on leash but sometimes city noises still make me nervous and I put the breaks on when cars go by. I’m already kennel trained, house trained and learning new tricks like sit, stay and down. My wish list for a forever home would be another dog to live and play with, lots of time outdoors blowing of steam and people who will love and care for me.

    Looking for a serious committed relationship.

      Does this Animal have Special Needs?
      Yes, Medical Needs

      Jess had a broken femur on her back right leg at some point in her young life which healed without any veterinarian intervention.

      Because of this her back right leg is 4 cm shorter than the left. She has been assessed by an orthopedic surgeon and AARCS medical team and both feel that her leg should not be amputated at this time.
