Jessie’s Story and An Important Reminder

Maybe Jessie needs one of these Thundershirts?

OK. Y’all get ready. ‘Cause today I’m sharing a little story with you. It’s sad, but it has a happy ending. And, it’s a reminder about something very important.

So, get comfortable and start reading. Here We go:

Hey Stuart, Thought I would send you a pee mail about my new little Scottie named Jessie. I adopted him on Oct 27. Drove to Savannah, Ga. to get him, just sick over what happened in his young life!

Jessie is a 3 yr. old male black Scottie who lost his home due to a terrible fire. His peeps and a cat buddy didn’t survive. He was outside and a firefighter or policeman grabbed him as he tried to run inside the house.

He was handed over to a neighbor who wanted to take him in, but he tried to bite the man’s children, since he doesn’t get along with kids. So he ended up at an animal shelter and I was alerted about him.

My home is perfect. There are no kids, as my kiddos are grown ups. His peeps were older adults with no kids. Anyway he’s been here with us (Me and his new Dad ) for almost 2 weeks. We love him soooo much!!!!

He is still afraid of loud noises (fire trucks, police car sirens and anything that goes boom), the propane tanks exploded behind his home during the fire! I take him on walks around our neighborhood and try to make him feel as comfortable and loved as possible. Hopefully with love, patience and a lot of dog treats will help that terrible time become a distant memory for him. I’m happy to share my life with him!!!

Please tell everyone you know and their peeps to install smoke alarms in their homes if they don’t have them. It saves lives!!

Donna in Florida

Pees, Jessie says”ARRROOOOOOOO to You Stuart!!!”

  1. What a deeply sad start Jessie had but it does seem things are looking up for him. Can quite understand why he doesn’t like loud noises or sirens. Good luck Jessie!

  2. Glad that Jessie has found a new home

  3. Kyla says:

    Get a microchip-it’s the most important chip after potato, corn, frito, dorito …..

    • Grrrrreat idea Kyla!

      I’ve got one of those chips. I guess that’s why the peeps say I sometimes give an aroma of Fritos.

      Aroo, Stuart

    • Dougall says:

      A lady who my peep works with, her pupper, Gene got out of his yard and ran off in the busy centre of town. He was gone for 2 days before they happened to go to the right vet and ask the right questions.

      Gene had a chip, but… it malfunctioned! It didn’t have any info on him and they couldn’t find his peeps.

      My peep thinks this is the scariest story she has ever heard. You just assume that if something happens that us pups with chips will get home because it has all our details…

      Gene is a lucky boy.

    Firstly, AROOOOOOO Jessie – we are so sorry to hear of your sad journey thus far but we can see that things are already getting better & we wish you only happiness with lots of tummy rubs and love from now on.

    Thanks for sharing Stu. We agree that a Thundershirt would probably be a great therapeutic tool for Jessie.

    licks & love,
    Wally & Sammy

  5. What a wonderfully emotional story. We are soooooo pleased Jessie has a new home, but what a way to get it though, breaks our hearts. We know in time he will heal and love his new peeps just as much as they so obviously do already. Hope you do get a photo as it’d be great to put a face to his name.

  6. What a sad story! I’m glad Jessie is safe, but I’m so sad for his original peeps and his kitty sibling. 😦

  7. A sad and happy tail indeed – we are glad he has found a nice new safe home and lots of love will hopefully make him feel safe again

  8. What a sad story for Jessie but so wonderful that she’s found a great home again.

  9. Beautiful story ending…sad to loose loved ones…wonderful to be rescued.
    We are big on smoke alarms. (Mum will test them often when cooking). Also, “save me” window decals are good to have so firepeople know to look for us..

    Your bud, Georgie
