His name is "just Jesse." But he's not "just" any dog. Jesse is a superstar in the dog world, and an internet sensation. But he needs your help to raise money for his favorite animal shelter.
Jesse is a dog of many tricks.
"Jesse knows a lot of different tricks and he also loves being a dog. He knows lots of things, he likes to swim, pull you on roller blades or go biking with you," says Heather Brook.
He was a birthday present for Heather Brook. She started training him when he was nine weeks old.
"For each trick it takes 5 to 10 minutes of each session, so to do one trick, we do three sessions... keep it fun, keep it fresh."
Jesse is more than just a pet. He very popular online and has a following, raising money for animal shelters.
"He's won $10,000 for charity."
And he's hoping to win some more money with his tricks.

"We take in the dogs, we get them healthy, get them spayed and neutered, put them online and find them homes," says Sandy Mittendorf, who works at the rescue.
