… arrived yesterday. All 24 pounds of him. Jackson, through no fault of his own, is a victim of the economy. He’s been well cared for and very much loved. Unfortunately, his owner was forced to work two jobs just to keep up with the bills. Leaving little time for taking care of a beloved companion … and even less money to deal with his medical issues. A dental is in his very near future (like tomorrow) along with dealing with some ear tip issues. It appears he has a skin condition at the very tips of his ears — most likely from improper drying after a bath.
Once released for adoption, Jackson will make an exceptional pet. A young dog, he’ll be three in mid July. He’ll be dropping a few pounds and working on a “heel” command so as to walk nicely on a lead. He’s crate trained, housetrained and will be placed with his crate, HW meds, a microchip and current vaccinations.
If interested in this little guy, please contact me at: ApsoRescue@aol.com. Better yet, if seriously interested, submit an application — unless you’ve previously adopted from us in which case you’re already approved!
Update: Jackson came through his dental with flying colors. The ear tip issue was pretty minor and will most likely be cleared up with a short course of topical antibiotics. Because he’s doing so well, Jackson will be attending the Fire Hydrant 5 in Fort Collins on Saturday, May 9th. He’ll be sporting a bandana that says, “Adopt Me!”
