Capone is a special dog that has been with Emerald City Pet Rescue for over a year. This four-year-old Cavalier King Charles mix was found as a stray in California, and once his owners were finally found, they said they didn’t want him anymore. We rescued him from the shelter and brought him to Seattle so he could find a forever home.
Once Capone warms up to people he is a cuddle-bug and a goofball, but he has had difficulty finding a forever home because he is reactive when first meeting someone before that trust and bond is built. (We don’t blame him, being abandoned in his past and all!)
We are strictly no-kill here at ECPR and we will keep a pet as long as it takes for them to find a forever home, no matter what.
Along came someone who had sadly lost their companion a few months back, and was hoping to honor her beloved pet by giving a dog like Capone a home. Capone, now named Jackson, went to her house just yesterday, and it brings tears of joy to our eyes that she has already begun documenting their journey together as she works with compassion and kindness to build a strong bond and a sense of trust with a dog who has a difficult past.
We are thrilled for any and all ECPR dogs, cats, and critters who find their forever homes through Emerald City Pet Rescue, but sometimes there is that special dog, and that special person, who when they come together spark pure magic.
Join Jackson on his journey with new mom on Facebook: Action Jackson the Cavalier King. Our motto rings true, Love Can Save Lives!
