In it for the Long Haul

Hi puppies, Magnum here. Mama wants me to post about Jasper, but he has not been very nice to me so I am pouting and refusing to help. Since I am such a good boy, I have agreed to let Mama post about him. Below is what she says.
This week Jasper has been adjusting to his new family and surroundings. He’s a little intimidated by the big dogs here, but he has warmed up to the girls and even plays with Chena out in the yard. Jasper also took a trip to our vet, who verified that he is heart worm positive. Since Jasper is underweight, a mere 37 pounds, we need to help him gain weight before he can begin heart worm treatment. The treatment is hard on the body, so we don’t want anything else putting strain on his body. He’ll be heart worm free within two months, but then we must continue to nuture him back to health for three or four months before he can undergo surgery to neuter him and close the lid around his missing eye. It looks like this little boy is going to be with us quite a while.
