Adoption Alert ~ Jesse #2478 - Adoption Pending

Hi everyone my name is Jesse and I’m seven years old.  I’m told I’m a calm, cool, good-natured boy who would fit into any family well and I think that’s true.  I sure do love my foster family right now and they are SO good to me.  I do have a few issues the biggest being that I sometimes get seizures.  I have always had this problem but recently I’m on this medication that really seems to keep them under good control.  The only problem is that the meds cost $150 bones a month.  I know…I know ~ I sure wish that wasn’t the case but I’ve been so much better since being on them.  I also have a bit of arthritis in my elbows ~ that really doesn’t stop me from doing anything.  I can go up and down stairs, jump into the car, and go for long walks.  The only thing is if I run too much, I start to limp, but a good brisk long walk is no problem.  I also dream a lot and can moan in my sleep.  If you wake me too quickly I can get startled and snappy but if you leave me alone or wake me with a gentle tone of your voice, I’m totally fine.  I also don’t like getting my hair pulled when I get brushed although I love getting brushed.  You just have to careful not to pull my skin.  Holy cow, this sounds like a lot of stuff but I’m actually easy-going and easy to be around, but it sure doesn’t sound like it, does it?  Oh well I have to be open and honest and tell you all about me ~ the good, the bad, and the ugly!  But hey, there is nothing ugly about me, in fact I’m told I am a pretty good-looking dude.  Some even have called me a heart breaker…aw shucks!  So, maybe I should balance the above with good stuff ~ I love every human I meet and I love every dog I meet.  I’m not a big barker and I can be left alone as you go about your chores. Loud noises don’t bother me and I know my commands well.  I’m not even bad on the leash.  I might start out a bit too enthusiastically but I settle into a decent heel after a while.  I used to be a bit grabby with treats but I’ve learned that being gentle is better.  I love my food and unfortunately I also love doggie doo-doo ~ don’t ask me why…it’s not like I don’t get good meals at home!  My amazing foster mom is trying to train me out of that bad habit by giving me treats on my walks instead ~ gotta keep working on that one!  I know my medical stuff is a lot to take in and I sure hate the idea of the cost and I totally understand if it’s all too much for you.  All I can say is that if you give me a chance, I will show my appreciation, love, and loyalty every single day…Scout’s honour.
