Your Next Best Friend: Jesse


The lady who comes and takes my dog friends and me for walks in the woods has nicknamed me “Chunkster.” Just so everybody knows, my real name is Jesse. I am 4 months old and a mix of some sort of hound and something big, maybe a yellow lab. I am going to be a big dog, but not to worry. I’ve got the easygoing gene on both sides — hound and lab. Why don’t you come by and walk with me in the woods? Maybe we could arrange something more permanent.

This past week, none of my canine colleagues were joined with new owners. The Rappahannock Animal Welfare League (RAWL), 160 Weaver Rd., Amissville, is open 8 to 1 daily. Call 540-937-3283 or visit
