Description

Jasper was dumped by his former owner on a country road and picked up by animal control.  When our volunteer picked him up from the shelter it was obvious he was not feeling well and not in great shape.  He immediately went into medical boarding at one of our vets offices, where he received the best care.  He had a severe respiratory and ear infection, hair loss with a skin infection and was not eating.  All needed tests were performed and treatment was started.  As time went on he was still not wanting to eat, radiographs were taken and it was found he had foreign objects in him.  He was immediately taken to surgery where a number of assorted items were removed from his stomach.

After spending 3 weeks in medical boarding Jasper was able to go home with his foster.  He is now on the mend, starting to eat on his own and finally wagging his tail some.  He still needs to put on some more weight but his foster will be sure he never misses a much needed meal.

Through all of this he has been nothing but sweet and friendly.  Jasper is now looking for his forever family, one that will treat him with care and love him for his lifetime.  He is ready to leave his past behind and looks forward to a future of living in a home, proper nutrition, walks, playtime and lots of cuddles from his humans.

Updates

Jasper is doing great in his foster home and loves his foster parents. He is such a sweet boy who has come a long way since he came into the rescue. He went from not wanting to eat to sitting and eagerly waiting for his food. Jasper has a great appetite now and has put on some much-needed weight since his surgery. He loves everyone he meets and loves getting attention from everyone too (he’s so darn handsome and friendly, why wouldn’t anyone not want to give this boy some attention). Jasper likes his doggie beds, and if allowed, he’ll get up in the human bed too. Jasper is housebroken and crate trained, and he really loves to go for car rides. Jasper loves his Nylabone, although, his humans must be very careful in the toys selected for him due to his history, and he’s only allowed to have them when supervised. If this lovable handsome boy sounds like a fit for your family, check out his profile and ask to meet Jasper – he just might have a kiss waiting for you.
