Hi, I'm Aspen!

I'm a 1 year old neutered male white with tan, yellow or fawn Great Pyrenees / Mix.

Age: Approximately 1 1/2 years

Weight: 90 lbs

My Story: I'm an extra large boy who was transferred to the HSJC from a shelter in Milwaukee. I was terribly thin and my beautiful coat was matted, which indicates that I was neglected by my "owner."  Even though I was treated so poorly, I am very friendly and still think humans are the best! I have a sweet disposition and enjoy being petted and loved on. I'll require daily exercise and my coat will need to be brushed regularly. (And yes, I do shed!). I'm a gentle guy but I have a lot of strength, so I'll do best with a dog knowledgeable adopter. Large dogs are more expensive to care for than small dogs (we need a lot more food and vet procedures like dental cleanings cost more because of our size), so my adopter should be prepared for this. I still need to gain some weight so I'll need the correct amount of high quality food. I'm looking for a forever home where I'll be valued and cherished and never neglected. I'm approved for respectful children age 10 and up and am excited to become part of a loving family. If you can commit to my health and happiness for the rest of my life, I'll be a one in a million friend and companion! Aspen is approved for families with respectful children age 10 and up.    

The online adoption listing websites require that we choose a predominant breed or breed mix for our dogs. Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We encourage you to select your new companion by considering each dog's individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on a breed label that is only a guess.
My adoption fee is $200.00.
I have been neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and I've received routine treatment for internal and external parasites. I have tested negative for heartworm.
