For 16 years, together, we have grown CPR. From a very humble 25 dogs placed in our first year, we've now given hope, health and homes to over 5,000 dogs.
Jasper is one of those men "of a certain age." He is old enough to have seen a few things, yet young enough to have so much to give. It makes for a cute comedy situation but in the dog world, the age is of the number that isn't easily adopted.
Jasper was found as a stray in Fayetteville, NC back in April. Sweet, happy, lively and affectionate, the little miniature poodle acted like a puppy but he had cloudy eyes that told us he was older. An assessment at a dog ophthalmologist confirmed age related cataracts and that is he most likely 10 to 11 years old. His cataracts are growing so slowly that, were he human, he would be reaching for the reading glasses but otherwise you would not be able to tell a thing.
As for his temperament, Jasper and I spent some time together in Raleigh during that cataract assessment and I got to know him. He is a right proper gentlemanly little miniature, with great house manners and a gentle nature around other dogs. He thoroughly enjoyed sniffing around a new yard with new smells (in vision impaired dogs we find their hearing and sense of smell is heightened), and he pulls a bit on a leash but settles down after he's gone on walk-about a bit. When I needed an extra crate for a pickup and had to bump someone out of theirs, Jasper volunteered and settled down happily in the raised dog bed in the passenger seat and rode home with me, content and complacent.
Miniature poodles can live to be as old as 15 or more years old. Jasper has much life and love to give. He needs time to find the person who will look at age as just a number and think more of happy times ahead than of what is behind them both.
Dogs live in the moment. You can help Jasper find his moment and find a new life.
We want to keep on making happy endings and being the place dogs like Angel can come to heal. To do so our goal is simple. 1,000 patrons. $ 25 per month.
At CPR we offer a haven since in our world, animals have no way to supply for themselves the basics of food, shelter and care. We offer companion animals an end to suffering and loneliness by finding for them caring people like you who offer them a home or by providing them a home with us. In exchange, they give us their love, their affection and their loyalty.
Your support means we can keep on helping those who have no voice and no choice.
