Grijalva - Jasmine - Coto de Caza, CA

Jasmine came into our lives on June 22, 2008.

She was a product of an Amish puppy mill and came with so much baggage I only dreamed that she would be the girl she is today. She has changed so much since that day Julie brought her to our home. Jasmine has changed from a shy and timid girl to the fun loving and never-misses-a-moment-to-love-life kind of girl. She now looks forward to any chance to give kisses, get a butt scratch or lie on her back for a leg-pumping belly rub. Also, she has developed the amazing ability to hear a treat bag open from a mile away.

Because she is small, she is the favorite size Berner for the kids in our neighborhood. They love to take her for walks around the cul-de-sac and she loves the attention. You would never know by looking at her that she turned 8 this past November.

Jasmine and Baxter have a special connection. I’m sure it is because of their similar backgrounds. They love to play together and Jasmine will lay right next to Baxter to let him know she is there. We have tried to tell them that 6am is a little too early to play but I guess they have a lot of playtime to make up for.

Jasmine has become a true California girl. Most of her days are spent relaxing in the sun. She loves to watch the kids play in the cul-de-sac and lets us know when anyone is getting a delivery.

We will be forever grateful to BARC and the people that rescue these special pups.
