Jackson is a 9 year old Springer Spaniel. He came to CAESSR as a two year old with a really bad skin condition, which need on-going treatment.
Jackson (AKA Jacko), is an 8 year old springer spaniel and is turning 9 tomorrow! We saw jacko on CAESSR's website and quickly arranged to meet him, when we did we knew straight away he would be an amazing addition to our family.
When we brought him home he was only 11kg and had pulled most of his fur out by scratching and biting at his skin - this was due to a skin condition Jackson has had since birth that had been left untreated for a while. He has had to have medication for this since we rescued him, and we finally found one that works perfectly for him. He got used to his medication and is okay with taking it as long as he gets his rich tea biscuit!
I have attached some images of Jackson about a month after we brought him home, and you can see he was still extremely underweight and unwell. Overtime he gained confidence and trust, (3rd pic onwards) and his crazy personality started to come out. He is now a sociable dog and loves other humans as well as dogs. Despite his past, he is a lovable affectionate dog and loves spending time with others.
We have had Jackson for 7 years this November thanks to CAESSR, and he gets more spoilt every year!
