Aspen is a four-year-old pitbull/boxer mix adopted from Ark Animal Shelter in Hastings, MN

Aspen’s favorite things include his Nylabone, his people, his cats: Ruby, Sophie and Chloe and the swimming pool. He even has his own life vest for the boat!

Owners Laurie & Brent say that Aspen loves to be outside when it is sunny and warm. “There is a hill in the back of the yard that he will lie on top of. He will roll on his back and fall asleep with his legs sticking in the air,” they said. “One time, the neighbor (saw him sleeping like that and) thought Aspen had died!”
