Jesse (19-149) Oregon, WI

Spread the word about this lovable Doxie:

Are you looking for a sweet girl who will sit with you, cuddle and love you to pieces?  Check out Jesse. Jesse is 10 years old and is being fostered in Oregon, WI (the Madison, WI area).

Jesse has a health issue that is managed with special food and medication. The details are in the medical section of her bio.  She is doing really well and this does not slow her down at all.

Jesse is in a foster home with another dachshund and a yellow lab. She does fine with both dogs.  She loves to be outside and go for walks.  She does have a high prey drive. Watch out bunnies!  For this reason, Jesse really should go to a home with a fenced in yard.  Jesse also eats the poop of other dogs.

Jesse does like to play with toys from time to time. She does shred the stuffed toys. 

She is shy and wary at first. Young children make her nervous.  She is not a big barker unless a visitor enters the home or young children are present.

Jesse is crate trained and housebroken.

Jesse really is a sweetheart looking for a family to love.

Medical Information:

Sweet Jesse has Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI) which is the inability to produce sufficient pancreatic enzymes to digest fats, carbohydrates and proteins. This results in the poor absorption of nutrients if not treated. You an read more about EPI here:   EPI cannot be cured so must be managed with special food and medicine.

Jesse eats a special food called Paradigm from Dr. Harvey's on-line (it is not a prescription).  Info:  It is mixed with extra lean ground turkey (or another lean protein of your choice).  The food costs ~$2.50/day.  Jesse CANNOT have people food or anything fatty. 

Jesse also takes a special medication called PanaKare Plus Powder. This powder gets sprinkled on his food before each meal. It must sut on the food before eating  to predigest the food and she has the inability to do so. This is a prescription we get from Chewy. It is $109/bottle that lasts a couple of months.

Jesse is up-to-date on immunizations. She has been spay and is heartworm negative.
