I don't usually ask for anything but please read Jaspers story and consider donating to help keep him healthy. He belongs to a friend of mine and he is truly loved.
Almost a year ago this little dog, Jasper, was dropped off by a person from Rocket Dog Rescue. He was nothing but skin, bones and hair. He could hardly stand and barely eat. His stomach and parts of his legs were covered in lesions. Most of his teeth were gone and there was a cataract in his left eye. All he could do was sleep and conserve his energy in an effort to stay alive. After weeks of feeding him a teaspoonful at a time from his foster mom's hand he began eating again and his stomach got back to normal. As soon as he was steady on his feet he started learning to go for walks. At first this was difficult, because his little pads were so soft he couldn't walk comfortably and he was scared of the paths and everything on them. Slowly he got used to eating and walking and began to regain his strength.
In September while walking in the park a Malamute bit his neck. He had to have eleven stitches. Blood got into his ears and lungs and gave him an ear infection and pneumonia. He was at the vet's so often it seemed he lived there. Antibiotics soon relieved his ear infection, but the pneumonia was a nightmare as he had to be nebulised and coupaged every hour. No sooner had he got back on his feet again that he was diagnosed with a heart murmur. His vet bill is now more than $2,000. The vet's book keepers are very unhappy about Jasper's bill and are ready to cut off his care. He's a very good, sweet and energetic little dog and he deserves a few more happy years before going to the Rainbow Bridge. He's dearly loved and has become an important part of his household. Any donation helps in this effort to keep Jasper healthy. To make a donation please call the Balboa Pet Hospital. A GiveForward account is also being made for Jasper. Thank you!
