Today, Aspen is a happy, healthy, good-natured puppy who loves people and other dogs. He is active, and loves to walk and run. He would make a wonderful jogging companion and enjoys just about everything, including swimming, but he settles down nicely when playtime is over. As with all puppies, Aspen needs a lot of patience and love to teach him all the things he needs to know, but so far he is a sweetheart and would make a great addition to a home with children or active adults.
Aspen is a handsome Yellow Lab who, along with his siblings, had the misfortune of being unwanted and discarded. Never has a puppy been luckier, however, than to be abandoned on an angel’s doorstep days before he is born, and is now on the road to a very happy ending.
Aspen’s mom was very pregnant when she was dumped on a stranger’s porch. This wonderful elderly lady would have it no other way than to care for Aspen’s mom and her new litter. There are not very many people with as big a heart as hers. She did the best she could on a meager fixed income to feed and care for 6 dogs, but it became too much. She sought help from the local sheriff’s office who found her a shelter to bring the pups to. The shelter spayed momma dog and returned her to the woman (the two had bonded and were now inseparable) with the promise that all “her babies” would be found good homes. The litter of pups were in such good health from the wonderful care they had received that the shelter wondered if this loving lady had skipped meals to feed all the dogs. Such giving hearts are rare and this family was blessed to be placed on her porch that day.
His foster mom describes Aspen as a sociable happy-go-lucky little guy, like most puppies, he explores everything around him because he's curious about the world. His playful happy energy will make a wonderful playmate for a family with kids and he would be a perfect companion to another dog. He likes to be with his humans, get plenty of belly rubs, and have a nice warm bed and cuddle up with you wherever you are. Would you open your heart to Aspen and give him a forever home?

About Our Rescue
These dogs deserve all of our attention, and in Rescue Dog Village, we are committed to our adopters and our dogs equally. We offer full disclosure and hope to make the best matches possible. Please know our adoption fees never cover our expenses. We rely on the generosity of our adopters and supporters to help us help the dogs.
Our rescue is ONLY in the business of offering FULL DISCLOSURE to adopters, and expects and hopes to engage your questions and concerns fully. We owe it to the dogs we rescue and all the wonderful families/adopters who might consider welcoming our charges into their hearts and home. Our dogs are waiting for that ideal forever home where they will be cherished as deserving family members. It's sad these second chances are even necessary for these dogs, but we are committed to them and will devote the time and energy to their rehoming, and not just MOVE them to save more dogs. We diligently and responsibly seek good matches as we don't want to re-home the dog again. These animals have already endured more than they should have, and through no fault of their own. It behooves us to be honest and forthright, and we appreciate the same in return from applicants. It's that winning combination of reciprocal trust and respect that allows for successful placements to be made. Happy adopters translate to happy dogs, and that's our goal!
Our rescue volunteers will be more than honored to be in touch with you directly and promptly, after receiving your application and conducting a mandatory a veterinarian check. If you have never owned a dog before, please submit your application regardless, and we will be in touch with you as soon as possible. TAKE NOTE YOU SHOULD CHECK YOUR SPAM AS SOME RESPONSES FROM US WIND UP THERE WE'VE DISCOVERED. Also, take care to contact your veterinarian to let them know a member of rescue will be inquiring about your pet history!
Thank you for respecting that we all donate our time to saving these animals, and understand we value your philanthropic and compassionate desire to help be part of the rescue team. That said, you'll understand why we are committed to the well-being of our charges and consider this veterinarian check mandatory. If you are a first-time dog owner, we will work with you every step of the way! ADVOCACY AND EDUCATION ARE AS MUCH A PART OF RESPONSIBLE RESCUE AS ADOPTION! And it takes a RESCUE VILLAGE to help the most dogs possible in a thorough manner to ensure success on all fronts, and then some! It is an awful feeling to fail a dog, and we can't continue rescue if we don't do everything we can to ensure good matches for the dogs and tender families who might adopt them. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.
Although we are an extremely small rescue group, we understand and respect your family's eagerness to be in touch and learn as much as you can about the dogs you are considering adopting. Our very experienced and devoted trainer will be happy to share all aspects of OUR RESCUE DOGS to determine compatibility once you've submitted your application, and another of our volunteers will explain the whole process of our rescue and answer any questions you might have as well
