JASPER







Hi, I’m Jasper, a buff, male Cocker with an estimated birthday of March 7, 2007.  I was found as a stray by a good Samaritan who cared enough about me to get me to safety.  I’m such a sweet boy, and you shouldn't be fooled by my age.  I have more energy than the average 10-year old and I love to run and jump up on the furniture and play with soft, squeaky toys!

I’ve been enjoying walks with my foster family, too!  I don’t mind when other dogs approach so long as they don’t want to jump up on me or sniff me too long.  There are other Cockers in my foster family and I get along just fine with them, and I like kids!  Yup, I’ve met a few kids of various ages and I am a true gentleman.

I’m missing some teeth, so my foster mom makes my meals with kibble and some baby food.  Isn’t that so nice that I’m being loved on so much!?!?!?  I am enjoying myself and would love a doting family to adopt me.  I’m not an attention hog or anything like that, but I do love my people and enjoy some snuggle time and just adore being held!  Okay, okay, so I do love attention, but what guy doesn’t???

I’m such a sweetie for my grooming, too.  I knew that my foster mom was trying to rid me of all my matted fur, and I sat still while she groomed me and had to cut quite  a bit off to stop all that matted fur from pinching at my skin.  Didn’t care for my ears being cleaned because it hurt a bit, but I’m all cleaned up now and feeling brand new.

Although I was heartworm positive when I entered GCCSR's program in February 2017, I've successfully completed treatment and tested negative at my annual exam in March 2018. I will need daily eyedrops in my left eye for the rest of my life, but other than that, I'm a strong, healthy boy ready to find my forever family!
