SeMo Couple Buys House...and Dog Comes With It

MARCH 6, 2006 - Posted at 4:46 p.m. CST

 

SCOTT CITY, MO - Jared and Whittnie Essner are settling into their first home and they particularly enjoy one piece of property that was left behind...a little dog named Rocky.

The young couple bought their house in southeast Missouri's Scott City from an elderly man who moved into a nearby nursing home.  The retiree wasn't allowed to take his beloved dog along with him, so he left the little beagle mix behind to be cared for by relatives.

The Essners fell in love with Rocky when they toured the home for the first time.  So they drew up an unusual clause in their contract...they would take Rocky along with the house.

The contract requires the couple to give Rocky plenty of love and attention, a condition they say they are ready to live with.
