Are you looking for a happy-go-lucky companion who wants to follow you wherever you go? Say hello to Jasper! Jasper is a loyal, energetic girl looking for a forever home to keep her active and entertained all day long! She is very affectionate with her people and loves to go for long walks to explore the outside world. She does need some obedience training, as she jumps up a lot when she is excited, but this girl is eager to please and a quick learner. She also resource guards her food, but with a lot of patience and help from an AnimalKind trainer she is sure to make great progress! She would not be a good fit for a home with children, as she is nervous of being touched in certain areas and can be overwhelming when she jumps up at you for kisses. Cats are fun to chase, so she might not do well with a feline friend, but she seems very interested in other dogs. She would likely be fine in an apartment or house, as long as she gets plenty of exercise and mental stimulation.
Is Jasper the adventure buddy you’ve been searching for? Come visit her at the Vancouver Community Animal Shelter or submit an application on the BCSPCA website today!
