This guy needs a home to enjoy his senior years.
Jasper is one of the older dogs at Animal Rescue League in Pittsburgh in need of a home where he can enjoy his senior years. He was surrendered, but we don't have much background information on him. He does appear to be house-trained and he walks nicely on leash. Jasper is almost 8 years old and therefore is a calmer, more settled dog. He also doesn't need the same level of exercise as our younger dogs, which may be a plus for some people. If you appreciate the qualities of an older dog, stop by and meet Jasper. For inquiries about him, you can contact Sue at email@example.com. Jasper's adoption fee is $55.
