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 is now 11 years old and still doing really well on his medication. He does have arthritis now but he is still as crazy as ever and loves his walkies.
He has been feeling sorry for himself recently as he has had a sore patch on the top of his paw. Luckily the vet has prescribed him some cream for this and it is finally starting to heal.
Jacko’s favourite day of the week is Saturday because he gets to see his Nana and she always brings him a treat (or two).
He is definitely getting more mischievous now he’s getting older, his favourite things to steal are glasses and socks!!
This year he has been on a few little adventures to make up for not going on holiday since the start of the pandemic. He especially loved the pumpkin patch where he could roll in all of the hay. We also took him to a charity dog show, where he won 1st in Waggiest Tail, 3rd in Golden Oldie, 4th in Best Rescue and Reserve Best in Show!! He was very proud of himself and had a few extra treats that day.
Jacko still loves meeting new dogs and people everywhere he goes, and regularly sits by strangers in cafe’s waiting patiently for some of their food! He is constantly making us laugh and has such a loveable personality.
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!
