Another “son”

By Jacklyn Yeong

Jasper is an active and happy 19-month-old cavoodle with white and brown patches.

Unlike other cavoodles with a curly coat, Jasper and his siblings resembled closer to features of a King Charles cavalier than a poodle.

His “mum” Shandiz praised Jasper’s co-operative and approachable attributes when it came to his obedient behaviour.

“He didn’t require a lot of training at all. I could comfortably let him off-leash at areas that we are allowed to,” Shandiz said. “He’s been very co-operative and obedient. I think this really depends on how you treat and deal with dogs when they are still puppies.”

Shandiz appreciates Docklands for its comfortable environment. Both “mother and son” enjoy taking their walks along Central Pier.

Besides playing catch and taking walks, Jasper also enjoys listening to music. He sits peacefully and quietly when music comes on.

“Jasper is very inquisitive, especially when it comes to humans,” Shandiz said. “He pays attention to what we’re feeling and acts on that, sometimes I think that he’s more human than a dog.”

He is also far from camera shy and would happily sit down for a picture. His “mum” already had an album full with pictures of Jasper.

Before picking Jasper, Shandiz travelled all the way to Sydney to check out the litter before returning again just after three days to bring him home.

It took them awhile to get used to each other but they have been inseparable ever since.

Shandiz considered a few names before settling on Jasper for its playful tone.

Jasper has been like another child to Shandiz, since both her real kids moved out.

“It’s like having a third kid,” Shandiz said. “My two kids said I spoil Jasper too much but I think that’s okay.”
