Jasper is a small terrier crossbreed of around ten to eleven years old. Jasper was brought to the UK from Romania over a year ago by another rescue who quickly realised he was deeply traumatised. They sent him to a rehabilitation kennels but that didn’t work for him either and so we were asked to take him. On arrival Jasper was so terrified of human touch that he would lash out aggressively when approached. He has now massively gained in confidence and is now ready to start looking for the right home. Jasper now shows great affection for people he knows and trusts. He still won’t let strangers touch him and anyone who adopts him will need to respect that this comes from a place of fear and be willing to wait to earn his trust. Jaspers great passion in life is his walks …. this boy is true to his terrier genes and just loves to run and explore the world. We will never know the real source of Jaspers fears and sometimes it’s better not to know as the truth can be painful….. but he has been brave enough to learn to enjoy the company of humans and has a zest for life that we could all envy just a little. Jasper will need a home with at least one other dog but would be happy in any sized pack. Jasper is not good with cats or small furries and will need an adult family or maybe with teens who understand they cannot stroke him until he’s ready. Jasper travels well in a car and can be left at home for reasonable periods with his dog companions when necessary. Jasper is incredibly affectionate and will give you kisses and chatter away to you. He loves to be involved in whatever is going on in the house and will come and see what everyone is doing so he doesn’t miss out on the fun. He will accept fusses on his head but will usually turn around and point his bum at you as his absolute favourite thing is a bum scratch. Jasper definitely doesn’t act his age and is always full of energy and could walk for hours. Unfortunately the dogs in Jasper’s adopted home have taken a dislike to him and we really don’t know why. Because of this, Jasper is quite stressed out as they display intimidating and bullying behaviour towards him on a daily basis. He really just needs a friend he can bond with.

Jasper fostered Mendlesham Suffolk.

Adoption Policy

When you adopt a Safe Rescue dog, you MUST use a slip lead. This will keep your dog safe: your new dog will be nervous and will not trust you, and you will not know which situations might upset your dog. If your dog panics, then a slip lead is the only way to prevent your dog from escaping (many dogs can escape from a collar and/or harness). It will take AT LEAST 3-6 months for your dog to settle-in and for you to know your dog fully (longer for nervous dogs). The slip lead must ALWAYS be used during this settling-in period.

Even after your dog is settled, it is safest to use the slip lead in situations where your dog may become scared (e.g. visiting new places, around unfamiliar people, at the vet), and it situations where unexpected triggers might happen (e.g. around bonfire night). Nervous dogs may always need to wear a slip-lead as a back-up safety measure.

The slip lead is a safety device and must NEVER be used as a training tool. Using the lead to apply pressure to the dog’s neck is damaging. If your dog pulls on the lead, then we can advise you on training methods that avoid harm.

Once your dog is settled, you may want to consider using a harness (together with the slip lead) if your dog is comfortable with being handled when it is fitted. Most harnesses are not escape-proof, but harnesses with a strap behind the ribcage (e.g. Ruffwear Webmaster or Perfect Fit Harnesses) are safer.

Retractable / extendable leads must never be used on our dogs.

Adopted dogs must be collected from the rescue and transported straight home in a crate.

Fences and gates must be 5ft min & secure. All dogs are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered (unless the dog is too young to be neutered).
