Meet Aspen!  Aspen has puppy energy with the sweetest heart. He loves to play with and chase the resident dog around the lawn and even bury himself in the fallen fall leaves. He loves all his toys, especially snuggling his stuffed animals in his bed when he's tired. We are working on learning basic commands and he is slowly learning to respond to his name. He is currently learning that his crate isn't so scary and will sleep in there every night. He loves to adventure around the house and outside in the backyard but when it's time to go somewhere he will follow his person everywhere! Once he gets his zoomies out and is all tired out he is super mellow and will sleep in his bed or even in our lap on the couch. He is a snuggle bug and a very happy little guy! We love watching him grow each and every day and he’s looking forward to finding his forever home!

Aspen is from a reservation in South Dakota. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract.
