Black kelpie dog

Pet of the week

This gorgeous, 1-year-old female mastiff cross staffy is very affectionate and loves a good belly rub. She would suit an owner who can walk her regularly or has a big backyard/property as she has loads of energy. She is friendly with other dogs. Sooty has been microchipped but is not desexed.

To rehome Jessie, read the Impounded Animals page on Council’s website at www.kempsey.nsw.gov.au/pound then contact Council Customer Services on 6566 3200 and quote Jessie’s impound number, 11005
