Jasper is a perfect fit for our family. Though he is younger than I thought I wanted, he has proven that age is just a number. As far as dogs go, he is low-energy. This is appreciated by his feline siblings the most I suspect! Jasper is my first dog and not at all what I expected of a dog… in the best way! Prior to adopting, I had mentally prepared myself for some basic training. Things such as no barking at the door/windows, no jumping up on people, no going on the furniture, no destroying our belongings, no pulling on the leash during walks and so on. That mental prep turned out to be for nothing. He listens well and doesn't seem to be the slightest bit interested in bad behaviour.
He is such a joy to have around that I can’t imagine not sharing my home with a dog ever again. We are very grateful to The City of Calgary Animal Services for taking Jasper in and allowing us to adopt the best dog in the world!
