Meet Jasper! – Adopted - DRR Alumni
Jasper is searching for a forever home!
Weight: 65 lbs
Age: Young (1-3 yrs)
i’m Jasper, a 2-year-old, 65-pound poodle mix. I love to play tug of war, fetch and hide & seek with my humans. I am super sweet and potty trained. I love a daily run, currently running 3 miles every morning and my foster dad. I could go further but he's the one who needs to stop, haha! I definitely need a very active family. I love car rides and bath time (not the drying part though). I like my daily brushing, and a good scratch/rub/massage. If you stop too soon I will lean into you for more. I follow my foster mom from room to room. I love to sleep in bed with my people but I am a big boy and prefer the guest room. I DO NOT like the crate and I do shed a little bit.
I am working hard to learn how to be a good boy as part of the family. I am learning to leave what’s not mine alone and have made great progress with not jumping and barking. My people say that I need a home with consistency and firm boundaries set and enforced. I can get anxious in some situations. I would be too much around smaller children. I will be best in a house with no other dogs so I can be the center of attention.
My foster mom says I am so smart! I know sit, down, and drop it. Working on stay and making some progress. I’m getting better on the leash but can get excited/distracted by the occasional passing person or squirrel so anyone holding the leash needs to be strong/capable of responding and holding me back while I’m still learning.
If you think we are a match, I’d love to meet you!
Jasper is fully vaccinated, HW-, sterilized and microchipped.
