NB: We do not rehome interstate or to applicants under 25. It is our policy not to rehome dogs in the Sunraysia area. As rescue groups have transported thousands of homeless dogs from Mildura and Sunraysia pounds over the last decade, we do not intend to send any back there.

Jasper has found a new lease on life in the last months living happily as an only dog and commencing a pain management regime for his sore knees and hips (not requiring surgery).

He does require time to build up trust, as his past history suggests it hasn’t always been easy living.

Once you gain his trust he is a very well-mannered little dog. He will approach you for cuddles, gentle pats and massages.

He will come when called and he knows to sit to have his harness /coat fitted for his walks.  He has always been a little sensitive when handled around his head, but will improve as he trusts you.

House trained and happy to be home alone for some hours so long as he is not confined, Jasper will use the doggy door. He has an independent streak choosing to sleep alone in his favourite chair overnight however always wakes his foster carer every morning with a smile.

Jasper was an outside dog for most of his previous life and consequently he is very scared of weather events including thunder, lighting and high winds. Recently we found that an Adaptil collar was extremely effective for him and he calmed remarkably once the collar was fitted.

On walks Jasper will bark at other dogs as they approach/across the street but we have discovered this is with excitement and he just wants to say hello. He is happy to stand calmly in the company of the other dog and has also been in the company of dogs at the vet and groomers with no issues.

Whilst previously he was snippy if picked up or scared, give him time and let him gain trust and confidence and you will see what a lovely, friendly loving little dog he is. He will spend time in a doggy bed next to you but he is generally not clingy.  He loves meeting new people both on his daily walks and at home. He travels well in the car once he settles, including long drives.

He is well behaved at the groomers and the vets and he is muzzle trained although he has not needed to wear his muzzle in recent times.

Jasper is untested with cats and will be rehomed to an adult family.

Jasper will benefit from a home in quiet surroundings, with an experienced person who will teach him to fit in with their routine and that he does not have to be anxious any longer because someone else is caring for him.

Jasper has a big heart full of love that he can’t wait to share with you!

All our dogs are desexed, C5 vaccinated with intranasal, microchipped, wormed and flea treated. All necessary vet work such as dentals, surgery, eye treatment is also carried out. We are no longer heartworm testing as we have not had one positive test since we began in 2006. If a dog comes to us on heartworm treatment this is continued.
