Jasper is a chihuahua mix and is currently residing at the Front Street Animal Shelter in Sacramento, California. No doubt Jasper is one adorable pooch who appears to be smiling, however he has a rare condition that causes his facial muscles to constantly be pulled back.
Accompanying this unknown condition as yet, Jasper constantly twitches, and in addition to that, he also suffers from kidney problems. On Tuesday, the shelter shared a video of Jasper hoping to help him find a home and to raise funds for his anticipated expensive veterinary care.
“He looks happy on the outside, but that’s not how he feels. Jasper’s condition causes his facial muscles to pull back and twitch constantly, and he has kidney problems. We are intent on trying to give him a happy life, but the tests and treatment will be very expensive. That’s why we’re raising funds for sweet Jasper and the many other animals in need of care.”Front Street Animal Shelter FB
And in spite of his health issues, Jasper does love to play, gets along with other animals and loves everyone he meets.
“I think everyone that sees him just instantly smiles. It’s kind of the first thing you notice when you see him is he has a big old smile on his face.”Haley Waugh, Front Street Animal Shelter’s public info coordinator as told to CBS News
