Essie

Hey! I’m Essie. I am a 23 lb, 5 or 6-month-old pup. I was found as a very skinny stray in Tennessee with my brother, so my breed is unknown. The shelter listed me as a mountain cur mix. I am probably a mixture of different breeds and I have a pretty brindle coat and one blue eye, one brown eye. I should be a small-medium dog when fully grown, but I am big on energy! If you adopt me, get ready for action. I am a very smart girl and extremely food motivated, and I would do well with agility or trick training, or someone who wants to go on a lot of outdoor adventures with me. So far I have learned to sit, down, touch, watch me, get on, paws up, and spin.

I am still working on the housebreaking but doing much better already. I’ve also started crated training and I’ve done okay being in there by myself, but I haven’t been left alone for any extended time so unsure how I would do. I like to play with my dog friends. I saw these things called cats and they were pretty exciting- I may do best in a home without them, although I am improving. I like people and I wriggle around and lick them in the face. I haven’t met any kids but I would probably be fine with them. Hope to meet you soon!
