Jasper is a four year old male Pekingese who came into rescue on December 24, 2008. He was saved from a rural shelter that had limited space, and he was running out of time. We were told that Jasper was a puppy mill rescue, and was part of a confiscation. He had spent most of his life cooped up in a barbed wire cage, and was used for breeding only. He had very little contact with humans, or even the outside world. However, in spite of all this, from the moment he was picked up from the shelter, he displayed an extremely sweet personality and warm temperament. He bonded very quickly with the woman who rescued him, and we are confident he will do the same with whoever is lucky enough to give him a forever home. Jasper wants nothing more than love and attention. He is a sweet boy who will certainly make a terrific family pet for the right people. He is also great with other dogs!
Jasper is neutered and appears to be house trained. He certainly knows what to do when he goes outside.
