Meet Jasper! This itty-bitty Chihuahua mix is only 10lbs and probably won’t get a whole lot bigger, if any. Jasper is a little shy but has been adjusting really well as he’s been exposed to new places, people and animals. He even interacts fine with the cat at the vet’s office, where he spent a lot of time after his neuter!

At first, Jasper can be timid when meeting new dogs but he warms up quickly. He bounces around with the big guys even once he’s comfortable! He was a bit talkative at first, but he had to make sure the big guys knew where he was since he’s the size of their head! The politer the new dog-friend is upon first introductions, the more at ease Jasper becomes. Because he gets scared at first, he needs soft introductions with bigger dogs but he does just fine at the small-dog park.

Jasper is the opposite of a high-strung pup and pretty much enjoys napping on the couch. He runs around with his foster sibling but also enjoys chewing on a good hoof and taking a break. He loves being a lap dog and will snuggle up to you on the couch. He also follows you around the house and just wants to be where all the people are! Short walks are enough for exercise and Foster Mom has recently discovered that Jasper is a big fan of fetch!

Jasper isn’t quite yet housebroken, but he’s nearly got the hang of it! Sleeping through the night isn’t an issue and he goes outside most of the time. But, he’s still young so keeping him on a regular schedule and a lot of praise when pottying in the right spot will help move things along! Following a food bowl into his crate is easy enough, but he doesn’t go in on command. If he doesn’t want to be in his crate, he’ll whine for a few minutes then lay down to sleep. Though he isn’t thrilled to be there, he manages just fine.

This cutie-pa-tutie likes to dance around on his hind legs when treats come out. He’s still working on basic commands but he isn’t overly motivated by food. His super expressive eyes and adorably massive ears will just get you all goo-goo-ga-ga over this little man, you won’t be able to resist once you meet him! He walks politely on a leash and always wants to make his people happy. He’s a pretty awesome little dude! If you’re looking for a small dog who is basically a cat (but way better), Jasper is waiting for you!
