Aspen is a very interesting mix of Basset and Lab (or at least that’s our best guess) who came to Canine Lifeline along with her equally interesting brother Denver after their family no longer wanted them. We don’t know where 1 year-old Aspen gets her sparkling blue eyes but perhaps there’s some Husky or Aussie in her family tree. She definitely has the short legs and long body of a Basset although she’s not nearly as long as her brother Denver (AKA Stretch!). Aspen and Denver get along well but they don’t necessarily need to be adopted together. Aspen has done well with the other dogs in her foster home so should be fine with other dogs in her adoptive home. Like her brother, she has excellent crate manners and may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee it. Aspen is working on her leash manners and doing well with that. She is sure to attract a lot of attention when out for a walk in her new neighborhood. Aspen can be a little shy at first when meeting new people but she warms up quickly once she knows someone wants to be her friend. She weighs about 35 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. She’s spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Aspen. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age.
