Jessica (and Jeffrey)
Jessica, pictured, and Jeffrey are brother and sister and are about 8 months old. Although they look like lambs, they’re probably Shepherd mixes. They came from a neglected litter in a backyard in West Dallas. Apparently, these were the last two that were not stolen by neighbors. The owner was tired of Jeffrey and Jessica and decided to turn them out on the street on Christmas Eve. These adorable two are learning to walk on leash, but incredibly friendly with anyone who want to pet their furry heads. Jeffrey and Jessica can’t wait to run and play with their new family and friends.
