The Story of Jessie

Jesse the retriever ridgeback cross spent the first six years of his life on the end of a chain. He was emaciated, could barely walk a few metres and hand no strength to get up on the couch. He was hairless on his back end and his rescuer/mum said she stopped counting the fleas at 400! He has no front teeth at all from the years of gnawing himself and anything around him. His mum has spent hours on his rehabilitation. Jesse always turns heads when he’s out. She says the greatest thing about Jesse and what she believes kept him alive is that he is an eternal optimist!
