Pets of the Week (March 14, 2012)

As­pen (A15147966) is young happy play­ful girl. She was found on a cold Janu­ary day tied to a home that wasn’t hers. She was def­in­itely someone’s pet though - you can tell by her soft cream colored fur and her sol­id well-fed stature. As­pen LOVES people. She likes to snuggle, sit on your lap, stand between your legs or go for a walk. She is en­er­get­ic and happy to be out­side en­joy­ing the fresh air -she is a ter­ri­er mix so sniff­ing and smelling are her spe­cialty. As­pen is a me­di­um sized dog who walks with en­thu­si­asm on a leash. She loves treats but takes them very nicely. She knows “sit” and “down” and is cur­rently hard at work ex­pand­ing her rep­er­toire. As­pen is very play­ful with oth­er dogs but can be too much for some with her en­thu­si­ast­ic style of play. As­pen is def­in­itely a no-cats kind of girl. She thinks they are fun, fun, fun to chase. She feels the same about birds - and when she is out­side, will stalk a pi­geon like a li­on on the sa­van­nah. She also LOVES toys and balls. She likes to throw them in the air, chase them across the yard and chew on them un­til they are al­most un­re­cog­niz­able. She can leap 5-6 ft. off the ground and catch a ball mid-flight which is fun for her and its fun for the people watch­ing too. As­pen will do best in an act­ive home with a fam­ily that wants to con­tin­ue her train­ing to make her the best dog she can be.
