—John Denver

Meet Aspen, the sweetest little tan brindled dream! You may recognize this sweet face, though she’s a bit older now. She was part of our “trees” litter born into the program in December of 2021. Aspen is back through no fault of her own, as her doggy sibling decided that she just wasn’t a good fit for the pack. 

Aspen is now nearly six months old and weighs in at a lean 35 pounds! She’ll likely get to around 60ish pounds when she’s full grown, but don’t be shocked if she’s smaller or larger. 

Housebreaking, Crate-Training, and Commands

Aspen is still a puppy, so remember that when we tell you that she’s still learning how to go a while between potty breaks. She is absolutely fine when loose around the house with her humans, but spending the whole day in the crate while the humans are at work is still a bit of a stretch; foster mom says she can go about 5-6 hours before her bladder says no thanks. She definitely understands that going potty outside is what she has to do, and as she grows, she’ll be accident-free in no time! Fortunately, Aspen is happy to hang out in her crate (especially with a treat to sweeten the deal) without complaint; you’re just gonna want a pee pad in there if you’ll be gone more than half the day.

Aspen has mastered “sit” and is working on “wait,” which is hard to do when you’re a pup and it’s chow time, but she’s doing great. She is definitely eager to learn and please her humans.

Behavior around other Dogs, Cats, and Kids

Aspen is great with dogs, cats, AND kids! She previously lived with all three and was fantastic. She is a bit mouthy (because she’s still a puppy) so she may be a better fit for a house with older children. Aspen loves having canine playmates and is ready to tire out a new similarly-playful four-legged sibling!

Behavior around People

Aspen is a people’s pup above all else. She would rather be at your feet or in your lap than hanging out alone or even playing with her pup friends. She loves to lay next to you or be in your vicinity at all times—you’ll never be alone with Aspen around! 

Exercise Needs

She’s got puppy energy, so of course, you’ll need to expect to take her for walks and do several play sessions each day. Aspen loves her bones and her stuffed bear and is just so keen on any type of hanging out!
