Hi there awesome people! You probably don’t recognize me. But yes, I am the same Aspin who shocked the world in 2016 when I was rescued in the most horrific state. I was literally a walking skeleton and I was so weak I could not even hold my head up, literally. My photos caused quite an outcry on social media and people from all over came together and helped Dogtown to get me on the road to recovery. When I look at those photos now I cringe, I can’t imagine being in that awful state again. But look at me now! Can you believe your eyes?

I have filled up and blossomed into the most amazing girl and believe it or not, I have even been told that I am a bit on the chunky side now hehe. I am ready for my next chapter and that is to be adopted by a family who will love me and take care of me and make sure I never end up on the streets again. Could that be you?

Let me tell you about myself. I am a strong, energetic girl and I love to go for long walks and hikes. I absolutely LOVE adventures so pack a back-pack filled with treats and let’s hit the road! I am an entertaining girl with a great sense of humour (getting a second chance at life has that effect on you).

I am super smart and I love doing training and learning new things. I do have a bit of an embarrassing habit which I am trying very hard to break. I tend to uhm…. how can I say… well let’s just say everyday is hump day for Aspin…… I am working on that though!

My perfect family would be one where there are no cats, I just don’t understand those feline creatures. I am a bit strong and all over the place when I get excited so I think a home without small kids is probably for the best. I do prefer my own company and would like to be the only furkid but I am pretty social and if the right fur-sibling comes along then we can definitely be a multi-dog family 🙂

I have been given a second chance at life and I intend to live life to the fullest every day, do you want to be part of my future? Please come and meet me.
