Breed: Australian Shepherd

Location: Weyers Cave, VA

Jasper is a very happy, loving young Australian Shepherd who is ready for his forever home. He is almost 4 years old, he weighs about 25 pounds, and he has a very nice blue merle coat and blue eyes. Jasper is housebroken, crate-trained (he loves his crate and will nap in his crate with the door open!), and he knows his basic obedience commands. He walks pretty well on leash and he is a great passenger in the car.

Jasper loves people! He is a little shy when he meets someone new, but he is quickly ready for kisses and snuggles. We describe Jasper as a high Velcro boy who loves to be right next to his people, but he will occupy himself with toys and chew bones while he waits for that next snuggle session. He is a medium energy guy who will zoom around the yard, toss toys into the air and chase them, and hang out with his dog pals. Jasper gets along fine with other dogs although he is not very playful with other dogs; he is more of a “peaceful coexister”. Larger dogs who are loud and play rough make him nervous and so he tries to stay out of their way, and he does best with dog pals who are closer to his size and easygoing (and he does have an eye for the females!). Jasper’s former owner said that he is fine with cats but he has not been exposed to cats while in rescue.

The ideal family for Jasper is friendly, affectionate, and ready to spend plenty of time with this wonderful young dog. A fenced yard is important as he loves to run around and explore his world, another laidback dog close to his size would be great, and children in the home should be over the age of 10. Jasper will benefit from continued socialization so that his confidence continues to grow – he is a wonderful guy who is so close to being the best version of himself! If you are a great match for Jasper apply today! Jasper is fostered in Weyers Cave, VA.

Jasper's adoption donation is $300.
