Meet Jezzie, probably the sweetest dog you will ever know. She is 9 years young and loves to lounge on the sofa and put her head in your lap.
The story of Jezzie, a Shepherd mix originally from Georgia, has taken some twists, but Brooke Garden and the staff at Garden Rescues tell us this girl is a survivor.
Jezzie had loving long-time owners. Along with her family, she survived a house fire, only to have the ultimate setback a few weeks ago when both her owners, a husband and wife, passed away.
Jezzie became homeless and found herself in a high kill shelter, but only for a day, thanks to the networking efforts of the amazing Franchesca Biondo from Greenwich.
On Wednesday afternoon at Garden Rescues in Stamford, Jezzie was giving kisses, wagging her tail and dozing in Brooke Garden’s lap.
“Camera? What’s that? I like it,” Jezzie might have said if she could speak. We fell for this sweetheart and someone will be very luck to bring her home.
“Our main goal for all our dogs is to make them feel as much at home as possible,” said Lauren Simko. “It helps them make the transition to a permanent home. The dogs get exercise, play time, pack walks, socialization and great medical care here.”
Ms. Simko and Ms. Garden said there have been many recent successful adoptions at Garden Rescues including four dogs who came from the Soi Dog Foundation, which is headquartered in Thailand.
They also found homes for two dogs from China who were saved from a meat truck by Jeffrey Beri, Founder of No Dogs Left Behind.
