Jesse's adoption donation is $225 and she is being fostered in North Eastern Ohio. She has been spayed, microchipped, received her rabies, distemper/parvo, bivalent canine influenza, and bordetella vaccines, tested negative for heartworms, started on prevention as well as flea prevention.  She has also had a dental cleaning as well. Jesse requires a home with a strong veterinary history.

Jesse is an independent woman, snap, snap, snap. She is also sweet, but a shy girl. She has blossomed in rescue and is really starting to come into her own and let her personality shine. Jess is the best welcomer, wiggle-running her way to you to greet you when you return home. She does a little meerkat thing when she is excited (soooo adorable - see video) and she is the best snuggler. But since she's an independent woman, she likes to snuggle on her own terms. Jesse has a way of looking at you in an irresistible way - you'll fall right for her sweet face. Jesse came into rescue through no fault of their own when their mom passed away. 

She eats well and loves treats. When she sleeps, she is knocked out. She won't know that everyone's gone upstairs while she's in the living room snoring her head off. And boy, does she snores - loud enough to rival the giant from Jack and the Beanstalk. She is leash-trained. She does have dry eye, a common condition in Shih Tzu but it is managed well by daily, inexpensive eye drops which she takes like a champ. Jesse will do best in a quieter home so no children under the age of 10-12 years old.

PLEASE NOTE:   If you are viewing this biography on a website other than the Ohio Fuzzy Pawz website, not all information transfers to partner websites in some instances.  If you go to the individual webpage of our dogs, you will be able to get more information each dog.

Visual breed identification in dogs can be unreliable so, in many cases, we are only guessing at the predominant breed or breed mix.  We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Our Adoption Process

The adoption process has several steps involved. Please review prior to submitting an application. Our adoption process is detailed here:

Our volunteers work very diligently to process each application and we try to ensure that we are making the best match possible for each dog.  We do not schedule meetings with dogs until an application has been approved.  It can take up to a few weeks to process an application or as little time as a few days, from the time you submit an application, please be prepared to adopt as we cannot hold dogs.

Special Requirements

Some dogs may have special requirements (for example, medications, a fence) -- if you apply for a dog, please be sure to read over the biography completely to see if there are any special needs and if you're home would be suitable.  If we indicate on the dog's biography that a fence is required, this means your home must have a physical fence.  Other dogs may require a "strong vet reference" which indicates that we are looking for a home that has a documented history of veterinary care with previous pets. 

The first step in our process is to submit an online adoption application at  The application MUST include the personal references and veterinary, grooming, and landlord references (if applicable) and their respective contact information.  If you do not include the references and the contact information, your application will be delayed as it CANNOT be processed.  Once the references have been successfully completed, a home visit is then scheduled when a rescue representative can meet all members of the family or residents of the home.  No application is approved prior to the home visit being done.   At that point, the Directors will discuss any and all applications on a foster dog and make a selection--in many cases, there are multiple applications for each dog, so please be understanding that our only priority is the successful placement of each of our foster dogs.

Out of State Adoptions

We do adopt out of state to outstanding applicants, however, our process requires a home visit, so out of state adoptions can take longer.  We do not ship our dogs, adopters should be prepared to pick up the dog in Central Ohio.
