Jazz's Info...

I am already spayed and up to date with shots.

Jazz's Story...
Jazz is two years old, a Poodle/Cocker Spaniel mix, and weighs 20 pounds. Jazz is from Mississippi. Jazz also came from a bad part of town.

Her owner got her when she was a small pup. She took the time to house train her and even got her spayed. But then she got tired of her and threw her outside and ignored her. Jazz suffered through part of the cold winter outside. When she arrived at the shelter in Mississippi, she was very thin and afraid to go outside by herself. They think she was afraid she’d be left outside again. Now she comes and goes without fear. Jazz is a very quiet, calm girl. She crawls up in your lap, tucks her nose under your chin, and lays very still. It’s obvious she is grateful to be away from her original home. Can you be the safe and loving forever home she deserves?

Ready for adoption 3/10/13. Must provide current vet reference when applying to adopt.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jazz, a Sparta Poodle (Miniature)/Cocker Spaniel dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Miniature)/Cocker Spaniel for sale in Sparta, or seeking a Poodle (Miniature)/Cocker Spaniel dog from a breeder in Sparta.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Sparta already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Sparta breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Poodle (Miniature)/Cocker Spaniel breeders who help with Poodle (Miniature)/Cocker Spaniel rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sparta paves the way for another one to be saved.
