  • Gina

    Gina is a labrador cross and was one of a litter of puppies surrendered to ash last year. All of the litter had part of their tail chopped off as young puppies, but poor Gina had ALL her tail taken off ! We find it barbaric that someone would remove a dogs tail for vanity reasons!  We think that for this reason people often overlook Gina and we’re really hoping someone out there can offer her the loving home she craves and very much deserves.   She’s a super girl.  She’s a year and a half old, is good with other dogs and loves people. Gina will need a little training as she’s just so enthusiastic and excited but she’s so very much worth it! Bless her, poor Gina has seen all her siblings go home quite some time ago and she’s wondering when her big day will come. If you can offer her a loving home, please get in touch with us.

    The Scampy pups

    ** Two boys at the top have now been booked** These absolutely adorable puppies are collectively known as the Scampy puppies, they came to ASH this week after they were handed into a vet.   There are 5 of these little pups in total – four boys and one little girl.  The girl is pictured in the middle. We aren’t too sure what breed mix they are but we think there may be some collie there.  They will be medium in size when fully grown and they will make amazing pets. They will be ready to go home once they’ve had their full vaccinations. If you think you can offer one of these beauties a loving home please get in touch with us.

    The Barrow pups

    These three babies were found dumped along the Barrow Track in Carlow almost 2 months ago.  No-one has offered these little lovelies their big break in a new home yet which is very sad.  They are such cuties!   They are lurchers and only about 3-4 months old.  The bottom right pup is a girl while the other two are boys.  Lurchers make suuuuch amazing pets and we’d so love to introduce them to the right people/home and ultimately see them setting off to their respective loving homes.  Please come up and ask to meet them especially if you think you offer one of these babies a loving home.  We’ll get their best collars on!

    Napoleon

    ** BOOKED ** This poor fella came to us this week.  He was found straying and thankfully someone brought him to us.  When we clipped his coat back what we discovered was even more shocking.   He is extremely skinny as you can see from the pics.  For such a little dog to be this skinny and this hairy its a shocker.   His tiny little frail body had to carry all that hair around for who knows how long.  We’ve called him Napoleon.  Napoleon is a shih tzu and around 2-3 years old.  Despite everything he has been through he is the most gentle, quite little man and all of us here can but absolutely adore him!!  Once he has put on a bit of weight we will have him neutered and then he will be ready to set off to a home of his own.  We have promised him he will never suffer like that again.  Please get in touch with us if you think you’d like to meet him with a view to rehoming this little fella.  Boy, does he deserve a break … and as we said even after everything he has been through he’s still a little dote!

    Hope

     

     

     

    This beautiful lady came to us a few months ago and she really broke our hearts.  She was totally blind when she arrived in ASH and we just weren’t sure if she’d ever see again but we knew we had to investigate further and do our best for her.   So, we brought her to an eye specialist where she underwent surgery to have lenses fitted to both eyes.  The operation was a success on one eye where she now has perfect sight  - the other eye wasn’t as successful sadly – she does have some sight in it albeit probably a bit blurry.   We really hoped that once she had the operation our lovely little lady might come out of her shell and gain a lot more confidence.  Sadly this isn’t the case and poor wee Hope is almost as nervous as she always was which is so sad.  Hope is ready now go to a new home but we’re really looking out for a one in a million home.  Hope has a few issues as she was cruelly treated in the past and is finding it hard to show trust in people again.   An adult only home is a must where she will get plenty of love and tlc and is not expected to deal with young children.   We know we can find her that perfect home … we have to … she’s counting on us and we just can’t let her down.   Hope will require ongoing drops into her eyes but she’s very okay with this – she knows she’ll get a treat once it’s done!  Ah bless!  Hope is a beautiful lady and we know that given the chance she will learn to trust again. If you think you can give her a chance at a great life please do come and meet her and get to know her.  We’d love to introduce you.

    Ollie

    Meet Ollie !!  Ollie is a gorgeous collie who was brought to ASH a few weeks ago after a kind lady rescued him from a not so happy life. Ollie is nearly 2 years old and up till now he spent his life tied on a chain with little or no interaction.    Ollie has been in ASH a few weeks now and yesterday was the first day that one of our volunteers got him out and about for a walk. He was much too afraid up till now ! He strolled very very slowly up the lane, taking the time to stop for a sniff.  Ollie is such a gorgeous dog and he’s now at the point where he wants someone to give him a loving forever home.   We would prefer to see him go to an adult only home as children would be a little too much for him to handle.  Why not come meet him and get to know him for yourself?

    Cinnamon

    Cinnamon is another beautiful little lady that was found straying recently.   Cinnamon is 3-4 years old and is a gorgeous lady. She is good on the lead and doesn’t mind other dogs at all.  We’re looking for an adult only home or a home with older children for Cinnamon as we get the feeling she hasn’t interacted very much with young children.   Cinnamon could make some lucky person very happy so why not come meet her, take her for a walk and get to know her, she won’t disappoint.

    Phoebe

    Meet Phoebe.  Phoebe is a beautiful 5 year old border collie.   She’s neutered, microchipped and fully up to date on vaccinations. Phoebe’s owners circumstances changed which means they have no choice but to find her a new home.   Phoebe is not in ASH just yet but will be coming to ASH soon. Pheobe is good with other dogs. She would be best suited to a home with no kids as she is a little nervous at times.  Please email us at ashlm@eircom.net  if you’d like to find out more about this lovely lady or arrange to meet her.

    Twinkle

    Twinkle came to ASH some time ago after she was found straying.  She is a terrier cross and she is around 2 years old. Twinkle loves people but she is not great with other animals. So she’s on the lookout for a home where she is the only pet and where there are no small children.   Twinkle can be a little dominant so we’re really hoping for a home where someone is willing to work with her and show her that she can’t always rule the roost.  Just look at her little cutie face … We really hope someone will come and ask to meet her and offer this little cutie a loving home.  All she really wants in life is to be loved and share all the love she can give.  Please come and visit her and you’ll see for yourself.

    Sebastian

    Sebastian is a stunning husky cross. He was dumped in our village and found his way to us.   Sebastian is 2-3 years old and is an adorable dog. He is a big boy and he does need some lead training but we know that with a bit of persistence he’ll be great.  Sebastian needs a home where he is the only pet as he isn’t great with cats or other dogs.   If you think your home fits the bill why not come meet him and get to know him.

    Angel

    Angel is a gorgeous dog that came to ASH some time ago. She was very nervous when she first arrived.  Since then Angel has come along so well and we’re now at a point where we feel it’s time we let her spread her wings and go to a new home. Angel is a very special dog to us so we’re looking for special home for her.  Angel is 4-5 years old and is good on the lead, good with other dogs and she now after much encouragement during her time here loves people.  We’ve all grown so attached to her that we’ll be heartbroken letting her go but we know it’s best for her. If you think you can give Angel, all the love and care she so deserves why not come meet her and ask for her especially.

    Tilly & Charlie

    Tilly and Charlie are two stunning dogs that were surrendered to ASH as their owners circumstances changed.  Tilly is a dalmation and she is 3 years old. Charlie is a collie cross and he is also 3 years old. They are both beautiful dogs, good on the lead, house trained and good with other dogs.   They have plenty of energy so we’re looking for an active family for this gorgeous pair together.   If you think you can offer them a loving home please get in touch with us.

    Fonzi

     

    Fonzi is a very handsome Pointer/Collie cross who has been waiting so very patiently for loving new home!  Fonzi was adopted from Ash 3 years ago however his owners personal circumstances have sadly changed and they made the extremely tough decision to find him a new home.  Fonzi loves playing ball, loves going for a jog and can hike for hours.  He is very good with other dogs in the dog park and he made his very special place on the “ASH bus” to our sponsored walk earlier this month!  He had a fab day out and got on great with his walkers.  Fonzi is also fully house trained and is absolutely dying to be in with a chance to meet someone who can offer this lovely fella a new home.  He definitely deserves that chance.  Please come and visit and ask for him especially.  He’d/we’d be thrilled to introduce you to him.

    Laois puppies

     

    These little fellas are three of a litter of puppies called the Laois ten! Their mummy was found straying in Laois and was brought in by a very kind family. Within weeks of giving mammy a loving home they realised she had put on a little too much weight and was in fact pregnant ! Can you imagine the surprise they got when ten came along!! We have 2 here in ASH at the moment while there is still five more waiting to come in! Mammy is now neutered and will stay with the family that found her.  The golden puppy is a girl while the other two are boys.

    They are four months old and they’re simply adorable. They are very well socialised and will make amazing pets. Their mommy is a lab cross and we can only guess what daddy is ! If you think you can offer one of these babies a loving home we’d love to hear from you.

    Charlie

    Charlie is a very cute terrier cross who was surrendered to ASH after his owners circumstances changed. Charlie was a little shy when he first arrived but he has come along so well now. Charlie is 7 years old and he’s such a cute little man. He is good on the lead although he does LOVE to jump in muddy puddles. Charlie would be best suited to an adult only home as he gets a little nervous around children. We know if given the chance Charlie could make some lucky person very happy. Come meet him, take him for a walk and get to know him..

    Brandyman

    Brandyman is a simply stunning Doberman that was found straying late last year and the people who found him very kindly kept him in the hope of finding his owner but to no avail. Brandyman is microchipped but it is registered to the breeder so we know he is five years old and that his name is Brandyman but no idea of who his real owner is. So Brandyman is now looking for a home of his own. He is a big boy and he’s strong on the lead, so we are looking for an adult only home with no other pets. If you think you can give Brandyman a loving home please get in touch with us.

    Kipper

    Kipper is a gorgeous little man that was adopted from ASH a few years back. Kipper was brought back to ASH as he snapped at a child. After all these years without children he found it all too much to deal with the one year old grandchild. Kipper is 8 years old and has been such a good dog all his life that we really feel he deserves a chance at another loving home without young kids.  He is good on the lead, fully house trained and an all round easy going fella. We’d love to hear from anyone that thinks they could be in a position to offer Kipper a second chance and a loving new home.

    Izzy

    Izzy is a very sweet 3 year old Jack russell. She was surrendered to ASH as she was showing signs of a lot of jealousy towards the families new grandchild. Izzy is on the lookout for an adult only home as a result. All she needs is a chance and we know in the right home she’ll shine. Come meet her and get to know her.

    Ziggy

    Ziggy arrived in ASH last week and the poor fella was skin and bone.  (His story can be read on our News page).  He was very down in himself which is always hard to see but we’re happy to say he has since started to perk up a lot. Ziggy is 2-3 years old and he’s a lurcher. Anyone that knows the breed knows just how great Lurchers are.  Ziggy will be ready to go to a new home once he’s put on a little weight. Why not come meet him in the meantime, take him for a walk and get to know him a little. He’d love that chance and we’d love to introduce you and let him do all the talkin’.

    Teddy

    Teddy is a handsome German Shepherd cross that arrived in ASH recently. Teddy is 1-2 years old and he’s a striking looking fella. Teddy is quite a big fella and he can be a little nervous so we are looking for an adult only home for him. Teddy takes his time to get to know you so if you’re coming to meet him please allow him that little bit of time to relax in your company and you’ll see him shine for sure … please come and ask for his especially.  He’d love that!

    Cheeno

    Meet little Cheeno, he is a simply adorable little bunny that was surrendered to us recently. Cheeno is now four months old and is a sweet little fella. He is very friendly and will make an amazing pet. Cheeno was surrendered to ASH as he was an unwanted gift and the family really didn’t have the lifestyle for a pet so they made the tough decision to find him a new home. All that aside Cheeno is now on the lookout for a loving home. So if you think there is room in your heart and home for Cheeno come meet him and get to know him.

    Nemo

    Nemo is a very handsome collie cross. He hasn’t had the easiest life up to now so we are really hoping someone out there can give him the loving home and comfy bed he so deserves. Nemo is good on the lead and he loves people. Nemo will make a great pet, come meet our boy, take him for a walk and let him do the talking.

    Peter

      

    Peter arrived into ASH over a year ago.  He was born on a farm and received very little if any human contact. When he arrived in ASH he had a thick chain around his neck. We can only assume he spent his days tied up on that very chain. He couldn’t walk on the lead and was reluctant to allow us to touch him. Since then Peter has completely transformed thanks to a lot of work with our volunteers and with Mark in particular.  Peter is now good on the lead and is happy to get out for a walk. Peter is best pals with Patch Springer (see pic). Peter takes a while to get to know you but once he does he loves getting cuddles.  We are hoping for an adult only home for Peter as he can be a little nervous around children. If you can offer this poor boy all the love and attention he needs please get in touch with us.

     

    Prancer

    Prancer is an adorable female Jack Russell Terrier. She is so nice natured, we are all very fond of her here.  She was found straying in Dublin and was thankfully brought to the safety of ASH. Prancer is 2-3 years old and she is full of life and fun. When she first gets out for a walk she is so excited, it’s so cute to see her jumping around.  She very soon settles down and is more than content to stroll along happily on the lead.

    Prancer was called after Santa’s reindeers because she came in at Christmas. We had hoped that someone would come take her home sooner but she doesn’t mind waiting for the right person. Prancer really deserves the chance at a happy new life. Please give us a call, arrange a visit and we can introduce you. Prancer has so much love to give and can’t wait for a very special visit by someone who might ask for her especially.

    George

     

    George is a lovely Japanese Spitz cross. He was surrendered to ASH because he snapped at a child.  He is very confused finding himself in ASH and is probably used to a much finer life.  He can be a little shy at first but is fine once he gets out and about. He is good on the lead and just loves to get out for a walk. Due to his history it would be better for everyone involved if George went to an adult only home.  He’s hoping for a second chance at life and we are really hoping we can find that for him.  Please come and meet George.

    Martha & Guinness

    Martha and Guinness are two older dogs that came in together from Kildare.  They are about 10 and 12 years old. Martha is the younger.   Both are such lovely dogs that is just a shame they don’t have a bed next to the fire which they can share and enjoy with their owner. We would like to keep them together, it will be better for all concerned, especially for Martha and Guinness.  Please do come and ask for them if you’re considering rescue and might consider an awl pair like these guys!  We’d love to hear from you!
