Jasmine is a sweet and cuddly girl who's playful like a puppy. She has big paws, a goofy little trot, and she definitely thinks she's a lap dog. She's always so happy to see her friends, giving them lots of kisses, and when they scritch the top of her head or ears, she closes her eyes in pure bliss.
Jasmine is so appreciative of the simple things in life and is absolutely thrilled with even just a bowl of ice water. If you hold the bowl for her, she'll drink some, give you a kiss, drink some more, give another kiss, and repeat until you're all kissed out!
Although she's very well-behaved and is fully house and crate-trained, Jasmine still likes to keep it real with her goofy antics to the delight of her friends at the shelter. Ask her for a "down" and she'll throw her front legs dramatically in the air as she drops to the ground. She's also always up for an adventure and enjoys nothing more than car rides and exploring the world with her person. But she's also just as happy to have you sit with her so she can lay her head on your lap for a snooze. One of her volunteer friends at the shelter brings in homemade pupsicles for her, which she adores, and she takes them very daintily.
Jasmine has a nice medium energy level, and while she's a big fan of doing zoomies, she's very good about chilling out if zoomies aren't appropriate at that moment. On top of her winning personality, Jasmine is incredibly smart and loves showing off fun skills like shake (with either paw!), touch (will reach out and boop her nose to your fingers), roll over, and spin! She also already knows sit, down, recall (come on command), place (will go to a specific place in your home on command), and she walks beautifully on leash! It's no surprise that Jasmine's thriving in APA!'s Total Obedience Program (TOP), which is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test.
As a TOP dog, Jasmine has a personalized training plan and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help her learn the skills to become the best dog she can be! Once Jasmine successfully completes all the skills on her training plan, she will be considered TOP Dog Ready! Jasmine is working hard to become a wonderful companion, and as a part of APA's Total Obedience Program you can work with APA staff to continue to build a training relationship with Jasmine after adoption and master all the TOP dog skills together. Check out a video on APA's CGC program, on which the TOP was based: https://vimeo.com/89434193
Exuberant, playful, curious and eager to please, Jasmine is an amazing pup who will provide a lifetime of love and laughs. Come meet her!

INTERESTED IN FOSTERING?
This pup is currently located at our Town Lake Animal Center (1156 W. Cesar Chavez, but use 1200 Reserve Road for mapping purposes). We'd love to show them off to you! To learn more about them, head in any day between 11:30AM-6:00PM. We are open 7 days a week! Go to Building B and ask to speak with a Matchmaker about fostering this pup. You will sit down and discuss all we know about them and, if it's a good fit, get to meet them then! Please budget for a wait time unless you arrive right at opening as we cannot dictate walk-in traffic (wait times tend to be highest in the evenings and on weekends). If this pup ends up not being the best fit, we have so many other pups in need that we can suggest for your household on the spot!
