Hi my name is Aspen. I was found deep in the game land woods with my siblings. My siblings and I were seen by a woman that traveled the game lands road. We were so frightened and hungry being all alone in the woods. We were so lucky that some "Because You Care" volunteers tried so hard to catch us. I was so afraid to be caught because I didn't know what would happen to me. After I knew I was safe I loved snuggling and giving kisses to my new human friends. They gave us food and water and everything tasted so good! After our bellies were full we got to sleep in a nice warm cozy bed. My sister Cedar and I slept for a long time because we were exhausted. Our fur was a mess and we had to be bathed and given a hair cut. I didn't like getting my fur cut off but it had to be done. I will look beautiful when my new coat grows back. I was a little shyer when I came to my new foster home but now I am comfortable with all my new friends. We have a fenced in yard to run and play in and I love it. I would like a fenced in yard at my forever home too! My sister Cedar and I are best friends and we have to be adopted together. We love playing and sharing our kennel together. We are getting pretty comfortable in our kennel at night and sometimes during the day when our foster mom has to go to work. We are working really hard on our house training and my foster mom is happy with our progress. We also learned to sit before we get our treats. I am so happy now! My sister and I have lots of love to give. Please give us a chance to be part of your family. These two siblings have formed a bond that can't be broken so they have to be adopted together. The adoption fee for both of them is $375.
