My name is Jackson. I am a 24 lb, 11-year-old special needs boy and the longest resident of Bichon Rescue of Orange County. I am looking for a special family to care for me for the rest of my life.
My sight is limited at best, and I have a neurological issue that makes walking on smooth surfaces such as tile a bit challenging. At times I look like I’m slipping on ice, but I have learned to just lay down and wait patiently for someone to help me back up. My foster family has managed my disability with area rugs and soft areas to walk like carpet and grass. I still love going for walks and smelling everything around me. I also require special food and lots of fresh water because my kidneys are not doing well.
Although my physical body is struggling, my ability to love and be loved certainly makes up. I enjoy being held and actually wrap my long legs around you like a baby when you carry me around. I also am very good with children and other dogs.
I hope that there is a family out there who will understand my needs and give me the best forever home.
I have had a thorough health examination, I'm microchipped, neutered, and I had a complete dental cleaning. If you have room in your heart and home for me, please complete an adoption application.
