March 2019- Aspen is our latest RE-HOME she came to us due to a divorce situation in the family. Aspen is only 14 months old, has a natural tail and dewclaws. She came from AKC registered parents but has no papers because her previous owners opted not to purchase them with her. She knows basic commands-sit, stay, come, seems to be/and is said to be-housebroken as well.
Aspen has been raised around children who were not properly trained in how to treat a dog, a year with abusive children has taught her to be cautious of the hand and she will flinch when you go to pet her head but she is very friendly and has been a great dog in the short time we have had her, the longer she is with us she seems to be getting past the flinching. For this reason I am reluctant to place her in a home with very small children, this sweetheart needs a break! She is cautious with strangers which is typical of a Standard but makes up quickly with new people.She is an excellent traveler and rides well in the car. Aspen loves attention and is just a happy go lucky girl!
She is very smart and athletic and could possibly be a good obedience or agility prospect with a little time. She does need work on leash walking but I intend to work on that while she is here. She does jump up on people which we are working on also, since she only weighs 40 lbs it's not bad but still not something we want to continue. She has been trained on an invisible fence system and had free run of the yard.
We have been slowly introducing her to our Standards and she plays wonderfully with them, she has met our small dogs thru the fencing and despite my chihuahua thinking she is Cujo Aspen did not react in a negative way to her. She really is a nice dog, very loving and deserves a great home. In her 14 months Aspen was only groomed one time so the grooming process was a bit terrifying for her, she will need someone dedicated to showing her grooming makes you feel better and a groomer willing to work with her, it is mainly her legs and feet that need work, but she is very good for nail trims, her previous owner used scissors to cut her which is why her topknot is short!
Aspen is up to date on her shots, is 23.5 inches tall at the shoulder and currently 40 lbs
