Jasper is a really cool guy. 

He's a 1-year-old, happy, smart, energetic, loving, playful dog who appears to be a Basenji/ terrier mix (no info on his heritage and he's a bit larger than a purebred, but appearance and personality point to it). He has really striking markings and is a handsome boy!  Basenjis are a coveted, intelligent breed of hunting dogs who are also known for being fantastic companions.  They need a good amount of exercise and play time with their family.

Jasper is so affectionate and loyal. When you take him for a walk, he leans against your leg to feel like he's with you for every second of it. It's like his doggie version of holding your hand.  He loves getting hugs and asks for them as soon as he sees you. If he was drawn as a cartoon character, he'd have a giant smile on his face and a heart with an exclamation point over his head.  

He's house-trained and crate trained, gets a long with most other dogs, but would rather play with you than them most of the time.   He would love to have a kid or 2 to play with in his new home, but because of his energy level and strength, he might not be a great match for a home with toddlers.  He also needs to go to a home without cats, because he can't resist a good chase, and must have a fenced backyard.  He would be happiest with a family who won't leave him alone for long periods of time during the day. 

He has been neutered, microchipped and is up-to-date on his shots, so he's ready to find his forever home.  He has very short hair, so he won't shed much in your house and needs minimal grooming.

Jasper is currently at the Suncoast Animal League office.  For more info or to hear our adoption hours, please call 727-786-1330
