Jasper the pit bull was running out of chances. He arrived at the Prince William County animal shelter about six months ago, an injured stray possibly hit by a car. He recovered and got adopted – twice. Each time, his new owners returned him.

“Unfortunately, he’s one of those dogs that’s just fantastic, but he’s also kind of challenging,” said Jill Gregory, center manager for the Prince William Humane Society, which works with county animal control to pull pets from the shelter and help get them adopted.

Gregory said she went to the shelter for her weekly pull, where a staff member took her aside and told her about Jasper, a pit bull mix who’s about 2 years old.
