Jazz was a rescue, picked up in Los Angeles and then transported to Family Dogs New Life Shelter in Portland, in 2013. He came home with me just a few weeks before his 6th birthday. I learned during the first year I had him that he had severe hip dysplasia, but that didn’t stop him from walking everywhere with me. He just got stronger and healthier. He had lots of soft, beautiful fur and it was a rat’s nest full of tangles when he was picked up as a stray, but I had him groomed regularly. Once we went to Milner Veterinary Clinic I started grooming him myself and kept him trimmed short. He was such a sweet boy, had the most beautiful brown eyes, and always had a smile for me. He was my best pal for 8 years and 3 months.
A donation was made in Jazz's memory and the memorial was created on July 15, 2021.
