Just in case you've been wondering if purebred dogs ever get dumped at animal shelters, just take a look at handsome Jesse. It seems his previous owner was relocating, but Jesse wasn't invited and inevitably became yesterday's trash. At the high kill shelter in Atlanta, Georgia where this purebred, four-year-old Dachshund was surrendered, there isn't even a mandatory "hold" time; Jesse could have been euthanized at any moment.
Fortunately for Jesse, Angels Among Us Pet Rescue stepped in and rescued him. Here is what Jesse says about himself as he patiently waits for his new family at a local foster home:
"I am one month shy of my 4th birthday and I am a whopping 13 lbs. of cuteness! My foster mom thinks I am a real catch! I am playful, housebroken, good with kids, kitties and other doggies. I have the perfect disposition; not hyper but not a couch potato either."
