Please welcome Jefferson, CP's new "older" kid

Written by a CP Intakes volunteer

Jefferson is another little cairn quite likely affected by bad economic conditions. We don’t know his story for sure, only that he was dropped off at a rural, overcrowded shelter by his owner. And since he is older and considered not-adoptable by the shelter, was on the short-timer list in order to make room for other dogs coming in. It took Col. Potter less than 24 hours from the time we found out about him until he was safely delivered to our vet. BIG thanks to his rescuer!

His rescuer reports that he is so thin that she can feel every rib and vertebrae in his little body. But in spite of his dire circumstances, she said he is a very happy and friendly little man. He is believed to be 10-11 years old and has a beautiful silver-gray coat. During his stay at the spa he will receive any required medical attention plus good food, a bath, a pedicure and quite possibly a haircut. I’ll bet they’ll even throw in a massage or two.

You’re safe now little man--so relax and enjoy you week, and you’ll be heading to your foster home very soon.

Welcome Jefferson!
