Featured Dog - Jasper

Posted by Furkids | Thursday, December 6th

 Jasper is true to his breed. This 15-pound boy is an outgoing, energetic two-year-old Jack Russell Terrier Mix. His amiable nature is a great match with his very handsome white-and-tan coat. Jasper is overjoyed to be rescued, after being saved from a high-kill facility.

He has the potential to be an agility of flyball star - this guy is happiest when playing fetch and has lots of drive and action to be a contender! Just image how happy he will be in the forever  home of his dreams. See his video below. You can tell he is very smart, agile, and treat motivated! Jasper gets along well with other dogs too!!  Apply to adopt Jasper now!
