My name is Jethro and I come from the hills of Kentucky. I was in really bad shape. I’d lost half my body weight and had almost no hair, and I’m pretty sure I heard folks saying I was “ugly”.
They tell me I’m a Catahoula Leopard dog, but with something else probably mixed in. Well, it’s true I don’t know who my daddy was.
I reckon good fortune was on my side, though, when somebody dropped me off at a vet’s office. I cannot tell you why, but the ladies who worked there were on my side. They helped me eat and feel better about myself. I went from 29 pounds to 56 pounds in just 3 months, and most of my hair came back. The Bourbon County Rescue folks brought me up here on a long, long drive and I had no idea what was happening. Being the tidy sort of man that I am, I didn’t mess in my kennel the whole drive, but oooo-ee I sure had to go when I got out of there.
Then like magic, I was living on a farm. I will say that folks around here have funny accents, but other than that I love it. I have dog and cat friends, and people keep telling me how handsome I am. I’m awfully happy to have been given a second chance in life.
