Adept at stealing hearts with his big brown eyes

Hi folks. First up, lets set the record straight so you don’t get the wrong impression from my name. I’ve never stolen a thing other than hearts and I must say I’m pretty darn good at that. I’m just an ole Southern boy with a hound-dog howl and in fact, I’m just a big marshmallow and lover-kind of dog. My previous family fell on hard times and had to surrender me to Helping Strays so I could receive the care I needed. It broke their hearts to do so and took a lot of courage, and I love them for doing it but miss them too. I get along with other dogs and people and am good in the house, so please check me out. A good dog is hard to find, you know! Woof-woof!

Jessie James is such a handsome guy. He would love to have a family of his own. He’s just a little over 2-years-old and is a lab/hound mix. He has good manners and loves to go for walks.
