Aspen is a very kind and gentle 1.5 year-old Lab mix female who came into a rural county dog shelter along with her pal Amber. This shelter doesn’t have an adoption program, so it can be a literal dead end for dogs there. Fortunately, a neighboring county shelter pulls many of their dogs and reaches out to rescues for help with them. Aspen and Amber both made the trip to Canine Lifeline so they could work on finding wonderful new homes. While we don’t have any information on how or why Aspen ended up at the shelter, we have found her to be the perfect guest in her foster home. She has been very quiet and well-mannered with excellent crate manners. Aspen may be housetrained too but we can’t make that guarantee. She gets along well with other dogs so ought to do fine with a calm canine buddy in her new home. Amber might also do fine as the only dog in the home provided her family has plenty of time to spend with her. She does quite well on a leash and would make a great walking or hiking buddy for her new family. Aspen strikes us as the type of dog who’s going to walk into her new house, check it out, and make herself right at home. She was intimidated by the camera so you’ll have to meet her in person to really appreciate how lovable and beautiful she is. She weighs about 50 pounds and her adoption fee is $250. Aspen is spayed, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to 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.
