Levi, Sue’s hearing-ear dog and most trusted companion, is played by Jesse. The Golden Retriever was born at a celebrated dog breeding establishment outside of Toronto and was discovered and adopted by professional animal trainer, Bryan Renfro. Jesse immediately landed the role of Homer on the Nickelodeon TV series “Animorphs” based on the popular Scholastic books by K.A. Applegate.
After a two-year hiatus in California, Jesse reunited with Renfro for the role of Levi. Renfro worked for Universal Studios from 1972 to 1985 at their live animal show and has also worked in series television. He also trained Casey the Border Collie mix who appeared in “Fast Track” with Keith Carradine, Scholastic’s “Goosebumps” and “Sons of Mistletoe” with Roma Downey.
