JASPER – 10904
Gone - 11-1-2017 Manhattan
Hello, my name is Jasper. My animal id is #10904. I am a desexed male tan dog at the Manhattan Animal Care Center. The shelter thinks I am about 6 years old.
I came into the shelter as a stray on 27-Oct-2017.
Jasper is at risk due to behavior concerns in the care center. He continues to pace and chase his tail regularly and is showing behaviors related to being extremely stressed in care center. He has no known health concerns at this time.
Let’s get to know each other a bit more…
A volunteer writes: You will notice right away that Jasper does not belong to a kennel, even a very large one. Brush that off your mind and see how this gorgeous dog evolves, leash free in the yard. He is one happy guy who enjoys his time out to the full extent of our session together. He is a good listener, comes when called, sits at once on command, takes treats nicely, hops on the bench upon request and gives me that beautiful smile of his as a thank you. Lots of tail wagging of course and loving caresses and butt scratches. Jasper is such a handsome dog, a shepherd mix, said to be 7 year old and seeming younger. He wears a perfect foxy coat, is healthy looking , owns still clear eyes and really nice teeth. He must have been quite well cared for by his previous owner…Oh, I forgot to mention that Jasper is a good ball player. He does not hoard or destroy or guard the tennis balls. A good walker he is, likely house trained and pulling a little toward other dogs. He has been playful in playgroups with his peers. In a nutshell, Jasper is a really good looking gentleman, sociable, friendly and playful. He will make a great companion and best friend to the new owner or family who will select him as their new pet. Jasper is at the Manhattan Care Center. Another volunteer writes: It’s hard to miss this handsome fellow as he waits his turn for a walk. He’s a gorgeous redhead who could stand to gain a few pounds in my opinion, but even at that, he turned down one of my treats when not to his liking. It’s good to be discerning! Jasper is likely housetrained, has lovely leash manners, and when strong winds nearly blew me over, Jasper maintained his equilibrium, thankfully, and was my anchor. He shows off his perfect sit, takes a treat gently, comes when I call him when he’s off leash, and has a coat you’ll want to run your hands through as it’s lush, clean and soft. He’s such a lovely gent, easy to be with, respectful and sweet, I can’t imagine not wanting to spend all your time with him. Older dogs make the most perfect companions, so be sure to ask for him when you visit.
My medical notes are…
Weight: 48.6 lbs
Details on my behavior are…
Behavior Condition: 2. Blue
