Aspen is a happy and good-natured pup with a beautiful smile. She has the cutest ears that often go in two different directions - one up and one out. She also has the silkiest, black, shiny coat that sparkles in the sunlight and her golden-brown eyes will 'pop' with just the right lighting-makes for very striking good looks. She is affectionate and gentle, enjoying attention from people of all ages, including children. She loves attention and getting a daily dose of scratches, pets and belly rubs. When hanging out with humans, she prefers to be near them but not necessarily on them. She loves relaxing on her dog bed next to her people playing with her favorite toys while her people watch TV. She also enjoys going on long walks and using her nose to explore. Her ideal family would encourage her to engage in daily nose work and take her on daily strolls. She is good on a leash but will pull if she sees something exciting like a bunny, cat or squirrel scurry by. She is completely content being left alone as long as she has these daily mental and physical outlets. Aspen is perfectly fine being the only dog in the household but doesn't need to be. She can be choosy about her doggie friends though, so good/slow introductions are key for her to adjust to different energy levels and personalities. DOB 06/01/2019, Lab mix. As part of Aspen's $250 adoption fee, she is spayed, microchipped, up to date on vaccines, and current on her monthly flea/tick and heartworm preventatives.
