He is approximately two years old and is a big, fuzzy ball of fun! He has lots of energy and loves to rock around the yard with staff, or go out for walks and meet new friends. Casper is so much fun to play with – he’s very attentive to what you’re doing and eager to join in on the fun. He needs an experienced adult only guardian willing to work on his behaviour and help him decompress.
Casper is a very smart dog who needs lots of physical and mental stimulating to thrive. He knows his ‘sit’ cue and is great to walk on-leash, but still needs some more training, especially on recall. He does jump up and can get very mouthy when overstimulated or aroused. Casper also struggles in settling in a home environment, he will need extra support in this area. He can be destructive when he is feeling these big emotions. This isn’t an issue of exercise but a dog who needs to learn to relax and regulate his emotions. His new guardian should have plenty of time, patience and tolerance to support him!
He needs slow introductions to new dogs but does enjoy a good play with the right match. His new guardian should be mindful that no resources are present during play sessions. Casper would not do well in home with children, cats or other small animals. To help Casper with training, we will offer a consult with an Animal Kind trainer.
Do you think you could be Casper’s person? Here are some ways to find out:
1. Visit our centre to meet this pet during viewing hours at 3202 Norland Ave, learn more about their ideal match and apply to adopt in person; or
2. Submit an online application adopt.spca.bc.ca and staff will contact the first suitable adopter to set-up a visit! Kindly note that due to the high number of applications and the availability of walk-in adoptions, an online applicant would have to be available to come in for a meet within 24 hrs.
