[ADOPTED] Aspen – 3 Year Old German Shepherd Mix

Aspen is a sweet, playful, easy going 3 year old German Shepherd mix. He is an absolutely stunning boy with the sweetest disposition. 

He was relinquished to the shelter with his best mate Charlie when his owner no longer wanted him. 

Upon arriving to his foster home, it was clear that he hadn’t spent much time indoors. Every day items like the garbage can startled him, and he wasn’t aware that counters weren’t for surfing. 

Given his history, Aspen can be hand shy, assuming he’s going to be struck when someone moves quickly, or raises a hand. Aspen is looking for new owners who will use only relationship and trust building training methods and won’t punish or scold him, as he finds that quite scary. 

Aspen is housebroken, relaxes easily in a crate, and loves people. He is very calm around the house, and is a generally easy going guy. He is a dream on the leash and would happily accompany you on long walks or hikes.

He loves to chase the ball, and is equally happy to lounge around the house. He is an exceptional snuggler.

A house without cats or small critters is best, as he has been known to chase them in his past life. He’d be great with an easy going, confident dog as a companion.

He is neutered, fully vaccinated, and microchipped and has been professionally groomed. 

Aspen is being fostered in Port Angeles, WA.

Note: At the Rise Rescue Alliance, we do not recommend taking dogs to dog parks for exercise. 

Adoption Fee: $550

Aspen has been adopted.
