Say hello to the little man with the big personality. Jasper is a Mastiff X. He will be a medium to large and very solid looking dog when he’s fully grown. Jasper has the most unusual coat. He is actually yellow, and his coat is “smooth” which means that it is very short and fine. This type of coat is ideal for bushy areas because you can easily spot ticks and burrs. It dries very fast which works well for the water loving family. Oh, and he is a great swimmer.
For now he is a sweet pup who is happily exploring the world after too long in the pound. His tail instantly wags when anyone gets near him. He loves children and other dogs, but seems to have a soft spot for 10 year old boys. He is not showing any sign of naughty or destructive behaviour, and is quickly learning his manners. Jasper would be a fantastic addition to any young family.
The name “Jasper”: Jasper is a stone that reminds us we are not here only for ourselves, but to bring joy and guidance to others. Jasper is considered a Power Stone and a stone that accepts intense responsibility as a Protection Stone. Jasper gives one the courage to speak out and have personal independence. It is a stone of the earth, and therefore a very “grounding” stone. All Jaspers have excellent protective energies. Jasper comes in a beautiful golden yellow colour, as well as red – orange colours.
