ADOPTED 09-24-11 – Jackson and his littermates were dumped at a kill shelter; they were all throw away like trash. Most of us know how a rescue story starts but to actually see the dogs and
know how they came to rescue makes it is very hard to stand by and not want to try to do something. It is hard sometimes for us to sleep because we see their sweet loving faces and know that we can’t help them all, but hate that we couldn’t help when we are just too full. This is the case, we are very full but want to try to help Jackson and his littermates, there are 2 females and 3 males.
JACKSON seemed a bit nervous of the camera but was fine otherwise. He is also a brave boy and kept trying to jump out of the exam room chair he was posed on! Take a look at these two short videos to see how charming he is!!”
Their story is one of chance; by chance a rescuer was at the shelter when the pups were surrendered. The whole litter was going to be put down but the rescuer looked at them and could not walk away, she was full but just could not turn her back on these babies. She took them to a foster and she does not want them to go back to the shelter but is unable to find them a home. She asked PAWS for help and Rescue Dog Village Guardian, Inc. collaborates with PAWS in hopes that they all find a loving home.
Jackson has been given his first vaccine and bordetella vaccine; he is due for another booster but could be ready to travel as early as September 8th. He will need to have a follow up worming, but other than that, he is up-to-date. The adoption fee includes spaying/neutering, rabies vaccine, fecal, heartworm and flea prevention and the transport fee.
We believe that the dogs pick their adopters and they are meant for that family for a reason. A rescuer with RDV did not want a dog but her family begged and begged her to adopt a dog. Finally, after much discussion, she gave in and they adopted the dog. Fourteen years later, she was rescued by her dog and would not be around today to help other dogs. Could it be that the dog you adopt saves you from a fire, loneliness, fill your home with laughter, companionship? Whatever the reason, know that if you apply for Jackson, your story started with a rescuer that could not walk away.
