Jasper's Story

Say “hello” to the oh so lovable Jasper! This goofy boy is as sweet as they come. Reported to be a very easy going guy who enjoys walks and snuggling, Jasper adores people and would love to find a home with someone who can provide him with lots of exercise. He previously spent some time in foster care where he loved to romp and play in the big backyard followed by a relaxing nap in the sunshine once he’d worn himself out. With all his energy and exuberance Jasper would make a great running partner as long as he’s on a leash- the first sight of a rabbit or squirrel and he’s off in a flash! While he tends to become overly excitable and still needs work on his basic obedience training, Jasper does well in a crate and has no problems being left alone.  

Jasper loves his adult and teenage human friends but small children make him nervous and he is best suited for a home without them. Also, due to his tendency to chase small animals he should not share a home with cats. Loving, happy, and kind Jasper would make an excellent addition to a home with an experienced dog owner who is looking for a loyal, affectionate, and playful canine friend. Stop on by to meet Jasper today!
