Long term Dogs Trust resident has paws crossed for home
Dogs Trust Shoreham has been home to Jasper the seven-year-old Collie Cross for over two years. Jasper came to the centre in January 2016 when found as a stray, and soon made strong bonds with his carers. He has come on leaps and bounds since his time at the rehoming centre and is ready to find his forever home.
Jasper worked closely with Dogs Trust’s team of expert behaviourists during his stay and staff are delighted with the progress he has made. He was previously worried by meeting new people and four-legged friends but is now starting to become comfortable doing this, in a calm and positive way. It now only takes him a couple of meetings, or a few games of fetch to get to know new faces and once he knows you well, he’s a very affectionate boy and adores being around his favourite people. He is also able to meet new doggy friends calmly, and is happy to walk with other dogs nearby.
Dogs Trust Shoreham’s Rehoming Centre Manager Tracey Rae said:
“Staff have worked so hard with Jasper since he came to us, and he has come such a long way – we’re very proud of him.
“Our training and behaviour team have taken real time and effort to identify which areas Jasper needed to work on and have done so with understanding and patience. This, combined with the companionship, love and care from our centre’s canine carers has meant that Jasper has blossomed into a wonderful companion for his someone special.”
Jasper will need a quiet, adult-only home within an hour’s drive to the centre where he can enjoy the fuss and attention of being the only pet. His perfect owners will be patient and understanding, with a secure garden where they can continue his passion for play with games of fetch.
This affectionate boy has his paws crossed that somebody will see just how great a canine companion he will make, very soon.
