Why I Chose Jessie

My mom and I chose Jessie out of a group of greyhounds at the Birmingham Racetrack adoption kennels. She pressed herself up against her crate door trying for any attention we would give her. We took her out first. She was very sweet, affectionate, and attentive, but oh so submissive. She literally crawled around with her tail between her legs. I really did not like that about her, so we looked at all of the other dogs. None of them paid us very much attention. We finally settled on sweet little Jes.

This is a picture of Jes on the first day we brought her home. This is the only picture I have showing how she looked before turning grey. I think she must have turned grey the very next day :-). Gator is in the background.
