Name: Aslan
Breed: Australian Shepard mix
Age: 10 years old
Sex: Male
Color: Black/brown

About: Aslan is a 10 year old Australian Shepard mix who is perfect for anyone who wants a great new canine buddy…even if they haven’t raised a dog before.  He’s very friendly and has a calm playing style with other dogs.  We don’t know if he has lived with cats before (Dakin staff can check on that), and we advise that if you have kids, you should bring them in to meet Aslan before finalizing the adoption.  He would do best in a household that’s got some activity (not too busy), and his favorite things include leisure walks, couch warming with humans, playing with toys, snuggling and going to training classes.


Beginner Nose Work for Dogs

In this beginner class, we will focus on teaching you how to encourage and develop your dog’s natural scenting abilities by using his desire to hunt and his love of toys, food, and exercise. It’s a great class for your dog to have fun, build confidence, and burn lots of mental and physical energy. Learn more and register here:
