Beautiful Aspen loves people, she is a bit shy right now, so please don’t let her reaction in the shelter deter you from giving her a chance. Aspen walks well on a lead and she is very treat motivated. She is a strong stocky girl and would benefit from some basic training classes. She will do best in a household with older children and where she is the only pet.
Aspen has heartworms and will be starting treatment soon. Aspen would greatly benefit from having a quiet home to recuperate in rather than trying to rest in a noisy and stressful shelter environment. If you would like to provide a foster home, or foster-to-adopt home, during Aspen's heartworm treatment, Helping Strays will provide everything you need; the medical care, crate, food, etc. Foster-to-adopt would be a great way to get to know Aspen. Finalizing the adoption would be done once treatment is complete.
