We rescued Jasper from a nearby shelter and it was love at first sight! He stuck his paw through the kennel, put it in my hand, and just stared while wagging his tail. I knew then that he had to be ours. Jasper is so affectionate, so friendly, so loving. He wants to learn and make us happy so he usually behaves very well. He does not have much patience and can get bored easily, but as long as he gets his exercise in for the day he’s more than happy to cuddle up on the couch and watch a movie. One thing we noticed is he tends to put his paw on small animals’ (cats, small dogs, etc) backs, sort of like he’s trapping them. It’s very intriguing to see his hunting instincts come through in such a gentle way. I have always had dogs as pets, at one point we had as many as 11 dogs on our farm! Jasper is definitely up there with one of the best, and he’s only been a part of our family for 6 weeks! I love my little buddy so so much.
