Our beautiful Jasmine turned 12 in February, and you would never know it due to her sheer joy of life! Jasmine loves to walk every day and will play fetch with her toys. She enjoys snuggling with you on the sofa and watching TV. This sweetheart is the perfect companion for someone who is home and has no small children or animals in the house.
Jasmine does fine in the house without any accidents or mischief while her foster mom is at work during the day. She needs a little help with counter-surfing, as she gobbled up a loaf of bread that wasn't put away! A typical Velcro Springer, Jasmine can't get enough attention and she wants to be in the same room with her people all the time. She loves riding in the car and starts her walk every day going straight to the car, as if to say, “Let’s go!”
Jasmine is spayed, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative and microchipped. Her hearing is not that sharp, so she is not a stellar watchdog and she does not hear commands. Her foster mom uses hand signals which she understands. Her eyesight is perfect, and in that regard she is a great companion. Guess what?! This smart girl can actually tell time. She's on a regular schedule, and she will wake you up to let her outside or to feed her -- 6:00 AM and 6:00 PM. We are working to get some skin issues healed, and she is being socialized to get along with other dogs she encounters outside of the home.
Jasmine would enjoy a quiet home as an only dog. Who is ready to lavish this beautiful girl with attention? Fill out an application today!
A special note regarding Jasmine and all of ESRA’s seniors:
Why adopt an older dog?
Most people go to a shelter or rescue organization wanting to adopt a puppy or a young dog. By adopting an older dog, you can make a statement about human compassion and the value of life at all ages. Older dogs are often the last to be adopted or the first to be euthanized at the shelter. Why should an older dog be left behind?
Dogs live in the present, as today is what's important to them. They don't tend to worry about what's around the next bend in the road. They just want to be happy and loved today! We all know there are no guarantees in life. The quality of time you have with your new companion can matter a great deal more than its quantity. Even if you have a senior dog for only a few years, the days you spend together will be precious!
You can give an older dog the best years of his/her life! Won't you please consider providing a loving home to a senior?
Special note to all out-of-state applicants: Please ask your State Coordinator to forward your approved Adoption Application to the contact listed. Also note that all out-of-state adopters must come to Texas/Oklahoma to retrieve their dog. Dogs will not be allowed to fly in the cargo area of a commercial aircraft. Smaller dogs that meet the weight and size restrictions for in-cabin flight will be allowed to travel in the main cabin area under the front seat of their adopter in an approved carrier following FAA and airline regulations. Cost of canine airline travel will be the responsibility of the adopting family.
Please note: Due to the heat of the summer months, the airlines will not fly dogs during this season. Please don’t ask us to do that.
