Best Tricks:
I play rope with Mack and I lift him HIGH in the Air and set him down! I whine when Aiden, my youngest brother, is being really bad! Hah "I'm Telling MOM!" I can open the screen door with my nose and I will put my paw on your leg to get your attention!

Arrival Story:
We researched Shiba's for several weeks and searched the area I lived in for Rescues. Two of the dozens of groups near us had recently had Shiba's, but they were extremely rare in Michigan. At that time I didn't know where to look for a breeder either. So I saw Jasper at the Pet Store (Bad, Bad) he was four months old and had been there a long time. I sent my Husband to look at Jasper and he fell in love with him. There was a rescue in lower Illinois, but we didn't know about driving 10 hours to meet it with three kids. So we broke Jasper out of the Pet Store and have been so happy with him.

Jasper follows a strict diet using Science Diet Weight Reduction R/D formula. At one time Jasper weighed 61lbs! He had been diagnosed with low Thyroid, but his new Vet cleared him of that diagnosis and helped him to trim down and stay sleek and sassy! (Mom's not sure how much I weigh right now, cause I'm still to big for her to pick up! But this time it's not 'cause I'm fat, it's just because she's a wimp!) Jasper has 3 People Brothers - Brandon 11, Logan 8 and Aiden 7. 1 Maine Coon Cat Sister - Hazel 12 (Adopted 11/94) 1 African Spurred Tortoise/Sulcata Sister - Harley - 3 1/2 Years. 8 Hamster Friends (all different kinds!) 1 Zebra Finch Brother - Pip (Pipsqueak) (Adopted 10/04) Lots of Tropical Fish Brothers & Sisters!
