Casper is the friendliest dog in the world! He was found on the outskirts of Bakersfield near Rio Bravo Elementary with another smaller dog; they had been spotted out there for a couple weeks before their trust was gained and they were rescued by a concerned citizen. We took sweet Casper in and had him seen by a vet, neutered, microchipped and given proper vaccines.He is about 2-3 years old we estimate.
From his foster mom: "Since having Casper in my home he has blossomed from that scared, insecure boy into a happy, loving and very snuggly best friend of mine! He loves to follow me all around the house and even follows me out into the pony's corral and enjoys playing with her. He has taken to my large breed dogs like he has lived with us forever. He was afraid of the cats at first, would run and cower from them, but now he is much more confident and understand they are not going to hurt him. His favorite time is at the end of the day when I'm relaxing on the couch; that is when he gets lots of snuggles and kisses. Casper stays in the house all day with my other dog while I am at work. He doesn't chew up anything and though he had to be potty trained a bit at first, since he had never been a house pet, he has been accident-free for weeks now! At night he follows suit with the other dogs and sleeps comfortably in his cozy, little crate and wakes up first thing to go potty outside like a good-boy!
Casper would make a wonderful companion for someone who enjoys the company of a lap-dog. He does great with my 6-year old niece, just a little timid at first. He loves car rides, and the few times he has ran into the front yard without a leash he comes right back to me. I can't say enough good things about this little guy! And to top it all off he is not a barky-yappy dog. I have hardly heard him make a peep in the month that I've had him. He is a joy to have around and I know he would make a wonderful companion. Good luck. Casper!"
