Once placed in a foster home, Aspen's beauty, like the tree, glowed. Aspen is a highly intelligent dog with a stately, dignified manner. She has a sensitive nature and requires a firm but gentle hand. Indoors she is very calm and prone to napping on a favorite rug. She loves attention and having her belly rubbed indefinitely :). She accepts her mouth and paws being handled, navigates stairs well and is also good in the car. We’ve been working on leash training and have introduced what is called a “gentle lead” due to her persistent pulling (this is working very well, she now walks calmly by your side.)
True to her nature as a Whippet/sight hound, Aspen comes alive outside. She would require a large yard or regular visits to an open place where she can run off leash. She loves to investigate and run for short bursts. Aspen really enjoys squeaker toys, sports balls, and is learning fetch.She knows how to sit, stay, shake, come, and fetch with treat incentives. She is very affectionate will make a wonderful companion. She loves treats including meat and all kinds of vegetables (asparagus, zucchini, broccoli, BEANS, etc.)
Aspen is used to sleeping in a crate at night, and for short periods during the day. She has never marked or messed in the house. She is very clever, and can open some gate latches and lever doorknobs. Aspen loves WATER! She’s never actually been in our pool but she loves the kiddie pool at the dog park.
Aspen gets along great with other dogs -- after proper introduction of course. She is good with children. Due to her "chase" instinct, we are not sure about cats.
Aspen is just an overall great dog despite her young and energetic ways. With a dedicated owner to continue her manners, she will be your best friend. We estimate Aspen to be approximately 3 yrs old.
