Jessie was found by an animal rescue shelter wondering the streets somewhere in PA. She was only two or three months old at the time. For over seven years now she has been my best friend and companion. Jess is extremely intelligent. She will respond to most everything you say to her! She has a basket full of toys (about 25 or so) and knows most all of them by name! Although she's endured two knee surgeries, I'm happy to say she is still very active and loves to play!
