The University of Hong Kong Libraries proudly introduces Jasper, a therapy dog.
Jasper, a ten-year-old English Sheepdog adopted from Hong Kong Dog Rescue, hopes to help current HKU students experience a better academic life through a new pilot programme.
Jasper was found at the public kennels and rescued by Hong Kong Dog Rescue (HKDR) at the age of one, after a brief adoption, Jasper was returned to HKDR. On that same day he was returned, Jasper was discovered by his daddy while he was volunteering at HKDR. Straight away a connection was made and Jasper joined his new family soon after. Gary Chin, the Libraries’ Public Relations and Development manager and Jasper’s daddy believed Jasper would make a great therapy dog given his gentle demeanour and friendliness towards people. After passing an international NGO’s therapy dog testing, Jasper was certified a therapy dog and the HKU Libraries therapy dog programme was initiated.
Jasper walks four times a day with his brother Cooper. Cooper is a nine-year-old English Sheepdog mix rescued from Lifelong Animal Protection.
