Description:

Name - Jasper

Nicknames - Mr. Handsome

Age - adult

Weight - 60lbs

Other dogs - is dog reactive

Cats - could *maybe* live with a VERY dog savvy cat but will chase

Kids - loves them! Has lived with infants, toddlers and school aged children

Background - pulled from a high kill shelter and quickly adopted. Unfortunately his adopted family went through a difficult time and it was in his best interest to be returned to ITP

Crate trained - quiet & relaxed in crate

Leash trained - walks pretty well on a slip leash or martingale with minor corrections

Housebroken - will go to the door when needs to potty 

Commands known - sit, stay, drop it, crate, down, high five, roll over

Car rides - perfect passenger

Bath time - enjoys being pampered

Affectionate - doesn’t give a lot of kisses. More the type to lay next to you vs on you. Loves a good belly rub

Activity level - higher energy and needs a yard. Will get into trouble if bored (chews things he’s not supposed to) so lots of toys and exercise is a must

Play style - loves fetch and tug. Could play for hours. Inside will be satisfied with a good bone but will still try to entice you to throw the ball

Bad habits - is dog reactive, especially on leash. He has made progress in this department but will require a strong dedicated handler if owner wants to take him out on walks or hikes 

Redeeming qualities - absolutely amazing with small children, incredibly intelligent, social butterfly and hasn’t met a person he didn’t like

Best feature - his charming and silly personality. And his awesome ears!

What Foster Mom wants you to know - 

“Jasper is such a goofy and outgoing boy. He absolutely loves people and he’s amazing with my young children. I know the leash reactivity can be a huge turn off to potential adopters but I wish people would just give him a chance! He’s the perfect house/yard dog and such a family dog. I can walk him out and about with other dogs (with a few corrections) so it’s not impossible. He just needs someone willing to see how amazing he is and to give him a chance.”
