My story

Hey you! Are you ready to meet your new best friend?! I’m GASPER and I can’t wait to find my forever family! If my gorgeous baby blues didn’t make you fall in love yet, then keep reading and I’m sure you will!

I’m a very sweet, adorable, goofy boy with a bit of a shy side. I love this beautiful weather, so my favourite things right now are going for my walks, and just relaxing in the backyard with my foster parents and fur foster siblings. I also love chasing my favourite tennis ball and playing with whatever squeaky toy I can find! I also enjoy following my foster parents around in the house to see what they’re doing too. I just want to be included!

I'm an approximately 6 month old male Husky mix weighing in at 27 pounds! I went to the vet and was such a good boy. They said they were very impressed with me and all think I’m so handsome. Now I’m vaccinated and microchipped!

So far I've been doing really well with my crate training! I’m doing very well at going in when they say “in”. If I don’t go in right away they lead me with my leash and I’ll go in with no problems! I eat all of my meals in there to make it an extra positive experience, and even get a kong with peanut butter in it when foster mom leaves for work which I love! I sometimes cry for a minute if I think they’re leaving the house, but if they ignore me I typically stop. I tend to stay nice and quiet in there, and actually enjoy my crate time. I go into the crate multiple times throughout the day, doing 2 hours in and then one hour out to practice while they're home because it's important that I get used to it, so that I can be independent and not attention seeking or associate the crate with you leaving. I also like a lot of sleep, so it’s important that I have crate time to nap. I have a rubber ball, my teddy bear and Kong inside the crate that I can play with, which helps to keep me occupied. I also like a nice comfy blanket inside to sleep on, and a light blanket over the crate because I get too excited when I see what’s going on around me. I'm very good at bedtime and let my foster parents sleep all night without a peep as long as I’ve done my business before going in for the night!

I don't live with children right now so I’m not sure how I’ll do in a home with them. I will need to go to a home with kids older than 3 because puppies take a lot of time and commitment!

So far I’ve loved everyone I’ve met! I usually greet people with kisses, but occasionally have been a little shy and cower if people move too quickly. My foster parents always advocate for me though and don’t ever force me to get pet by anyone if I don’t seem comfortable. I stayed with a temporary foster parent for about a week, and while I was getting used to everything I got a little territorial once when she grabbed a toy behind me. I do get nervous with fast movements though sometimes, so foster mom thinks it’s because it scared me that someone was approaching quickly from a blind spot behind me. Being around a lot of people is new for me, so it may take a little bit of practice and patience! Taking me to a balanced dog trainer will be a great idea to help get my confidence up and get me used to my next day to day!

I live with 2 other dogs in my foster home that I get along with really well! My foster parents keep me on leash and supervised at all times so that they can advocate for them and take me away from the situation if need be. So far I’m typically calm around them, and we like being in each others presence! Sometimes we play fight or play tug of war! I do have some bursts of puppy energy though, so occasionally I try to convince my foster brother to play with me when he doesn’t feel like it. My foster parent just uses the leash to take me away from them if need be. I do get a little nervous sometimes meeting new dogs though if they come at me with a lot of energy off the bat, and will bark at them. I like to meet dogs slowly before I become friends with them!

I also live with a cat that I haven’t really hung out with much yet. He walks by every once in a while, or occasionally lets me sniff him but if I get too excited he walks away from me. I’m also on the leash though, so if I decide to bother him, they can easily take me away from the situation.

I’m doing well with my housetraining so far too, and haven’t had any accidents yet in my foster home! I’m on a good schedule of being taken outside right when I come out of the crate and before I go back in, so I don’t feel the need to make those mistakes. I'm also always on leash in the house so if I was about to make a mistake, like starting to squat, my foster parents could catch me right away and take me outside. I also will stand in front of the back door now to cue you I need to go out!

So far leash walking has been going well too! I do typically pull a bit, but if I do my foster parents will turn and walk the other way in order to show me that I have to follow their movements. I usually catch on after a few turns and then will be good for the rest of my walk! So far I haven’t shown any signs of reactivity when I’ve seen people or dogs on our walks, but I do like to try to chase squirrels! Foster dad takes me for a one on one walk every morning and says it’s so fun! I have so much fun too, and am always pooped after!

I’ve also been really good in the car so far and just sit there and look out the window, or lay down. I usually jump into the car on my own, and then foster mom puts my leash in the door to act like an anchor so that I can’t explore. It also makes it easy for her to grab my leash before she takes me out, so there’s no possibility of me running off.

So, if you've got room in your home for this beautiful guy, then put in an application for GASPER at www.findingthemhomes.com

*Note that it is recommended that you practice the "no talk no touch" rule in order to teach me to be independent and not attention seeking. It’s also important that I stay on leash in and outside of the house for at least the first 30 days to help teach me the new rules of the house*
