In Memory of
our beloved GSPs
We are heartbroken to announce the passing of our 2019 alumnus Jager. Jager had been battling a serious heart condition called right-sided Congestive Heart Failure. Despite treatment his symptoms progressed, and his family was forced to say farewell. We recently posted an update on Jager where his family said, through it all Jager had been solid as a rock for them, maintaining his caring and loving nature.
From his dad Peter, “My wife Chelsea and I are saddened to relay news of Jager’s passing. We were so hopeful that we could keep him strong and healthy and enjoy more time with him, but sadly his decreasing appetite completely left him as his heart failure progressed, and despite every effort we couldn’t get him to eat. We realized that asking him to continue at that point wouldn’t be fair to him, and said goodbye to our sweet, beloved boy on Nov 23. He crossed the Rainbow Bridge peacefully and surrounded by loved ones. While we’re relieved he’s no longer struggling and know he’s in a better place, we’re also devastated to lose him. We wanted to say thank you to everyone one more time for all you do, and for helping bring Jager to us.”
Jager came to rescue in 2019 after a rough start to life. His owner left him at someone’s home and never came back for him. He spent most of his time in a wire crate outside. He stayed there for 5 years without love or attention until they finally surrendered him to a shelter. That started Jager’s journey to rescue life and his “real” forever home. We wish it would have happened sooner for Jager, but he had an amazing few years with Chelsea and Peter and we know he was happy.
