Mid-Atlantic German Shepherd Rescue Rescue of the Month JASPER
The Pennsylvania Dutch Market has chosen Jasper, a 5-year-old, German Shepherd as our Rescue of the Month. Our hope is that someone will open their heart and their home and finally give this guy the life he deserves.
According to the Mid-Atlantic German Shepherd Rescue, Jasper was abandoned by his owner on a back road and rescued by animal control. After 3 weeks of being cared for by a vet and having surgery to remove foreign items from his stomach, Jasper was well enough to go to his foster family. Despite his traumatic past, Jasper is still a very friendly and happy boy. He enjoys his walks, playtime, and love from his foster family. Jasper is house broken, well-mannered, and gets along well other dogs. When choosing a toy for Jasper, please be mindful he cannot swallow them and supervise him as he plays.

I wish someone would tell me what it is
That I’ve done wrong.
Why I have to stay chained up and
Left alone so long.
They seemed so glad to have me when
I came here as a pup.
There were so many things we’d do
While I was growing up.
They couldn’t wait to train me as a
Companion and a friend.
And told me how they’d never fear
Being left alone again.
The children said they’d feed me and
Brush me every day.
They’d play with me and walk me
If I could only stay.
But now the family “Hasn’t Time”;
They often say I shed.
They do not want me in the house
Not even to be fed.
The children never walk me.
They always say, “NOT NOW!”
I wish that I could please them.
Won’t someone tell me how?
All I had, you see, was love.
I wish they would explain
Why they said they wanted me,
Then left me on a chain?
