Brandyman is a simply stunning Doberman that was found straying 3 weeks ago 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!! If no owner comes forward in due course this wonderful big boy will be on the lookout for a new loving home.
The Advent pups
The advent puppies are two of the cutest little fellas you’ll ever encounter. They are 11-12 weeks old and were an unexpected litter. They are Springer Spaniels and they are such gorgeous little fellas. We know these two will make amazing pets in their first ever real home. If you think you have room in your heart and home for one or both of these cuties please get in touch with us – we’d love to introduce you.
Little Ricky is one amazing little doggy. He arrived into ASH as part of a litter of puppies called the Sybbald puppies. All of the litter were in bad condition as they hadn’t the best start in life, they all had rickets and with some supplements it cleared up. Sadly though poor Ricky wasn’t so lucky and despite constant visits to the vet and regular treatment his rickets didn’t clear up. Now Ricky’s two front legs are bowed. This doesn’t stop Ricky in any way whatsoever – he’s a really happy chappy! He currently lives in the house and shares a room with three of our special needs dogs and Ricky is really helping them come out of their shell. He is simply an adorable boy and we know the right home must be out there just waiting for him. Ricky will not need much extra special treatment, the biggest issue is Ricky will never be able to go on long walks – something he’s more than happy with too. If you think Ricky could become part of your life please do consider coming to meet him. We all adore him to bits and we’re sure you will too. Please make that call and come and visit him. You’ll fall in love for sure … so be ready for that!

Meet Bianca a 7 month old beagle/lab girl who will be coming to ASH soon. She’ll probably be a big enough dog and is clearly a stunner! Her owners have recognised and taken the tough decision that Bianca will be a happier and healthier dog in a home with someone who can give her all the love, exercise and training she needs. Bianca is still a pup and is so full of love and just may need a little direction in life from an experienced dog owner … someone who can offer TLT (time, love and training) to point her in the direction she’s trying to go! We’re looking for a home without young children where Bianca has a little extra space to learn and to continue to return all the love she’s got to offer a special someone out there. We’d love to hear from you if you think Bianca could fit into your life and your home. Please get in touch with us if you think this could be you or would like to find out more about Bianca!
Beautiful Roxy was adopted from ASH a few months ago.

Roxy is now on the lookout for a new home and we’re looking for an adult only home for her. Roxy is good on the lead, and is a very sweet little lady.

Gilbert & George
Gilbert and George are stunning Newfoundland, German Shepherd crosses. They were surrendered to ASH as their owner was living in rented accommodation and the landlord did not want such big dogs. Gilbert and George are under a year old and we would absolutely love if we could rehome them together. They are so attached to each other we feel it would be a shame to split them up.

If you think you have room in your heart and home for our big handsome fellas please get in touch with us.

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.
Billy is a very handsome Springer Spaniel. He was living on a farm and the farmer was going to shoot him as he was snapping at other dogs, thankfully someone brought him to safety. Billy is a fab little fella. In general he doesn’t have issues around other dogs unless there is food around as he has a tendency to guard his food. Billy can be a little nervous so an adult only home would be best suited to him. Billy will be arriving into ASH soon and we would love to hear from anyone interested in offering him a new home.
Big Bruno (we already have a little Bruno) is a very striking labrador cross that was rescued from a pound recently and brought to the safety of ASH. Bruno is 1-2 years old and is a very gentle and loving dog. He is good on the lead, good with other dogs and good with children. He is highly mannerly and is so deserving of a loving home.

We’d love to introduce you and let him do all the talking after that.
Stanley is a stunning German Shepherd, Husky cross. He was adopted from ASH recently but was brought back as he got a little over excited and snapped at a child while they were playing. Stanley isn’t an aggressive dog in any way whatsoever but we think an adult only home would be best suited for him. Stanley is good on the lead. He is 2-3 years old and now all he needs is a home to call his own. If you can offer Stanley the loving home he so deserves please get in touch with us.
Bonnie is a stunning Belgian shepherd, collie cross. She was surrendered to ASH as her owner had to move to an apartment where Bonnie’s energetic needs couldn’t be met.

Bonnie thrives on attention and will make a great companion for someone willing to give her all the love and company she needs.

Hugo is a gorgeous Rottweiler cross. He was found straying recently and was brought to us. Hugo is about 3-4 years old and is unbelievably well behaved. He is really good on the lead and doesn’t mind other dogs. Hugo is a big boy so he will need a dedicated owner that is willing to give him all the exercise and walks he needs. If you can offer Hugo a home please get in touch with us.
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.
Our lovely Sushi is yet another dog who was just dumped here!! Who knows what her situation was but she hasn’t taken a single step wrong since she has been in ASH. Sushi is a Staffie and is such a fantastic dog. She is a young adult and is so very sweet. She’s good on the lead and as soon as you take her out she’s keen to give and receive cuddles. Sushi is a favourite among many of the volunteers and we just know she will make someone out there very happy … given the chance. Sushi never asks for much and we really home the right person will come forward and give her a second chance. If you think that might be you, please get in touch with us – give her that chance and come and meet her in person! Anyone who meets this little lady will be sure to love her!
Annie is 3-4 years old and like the vast majority of Staffies Annie is a very sweet girl and you can see and almost sense her happy nature in these pics. Annie is good on the lead and is not so bad around other dogs. All of us here in ASH adore Annie and although we’d hate to say goodbye we’d be so happy if that special someone offered our lovely lady a home and a second chance at a great life. Annie is so loving and giving and we know she’ll make someone special very happy. If you think you might be that person please do get in touch with us – better yet come up and visit little Annie.

Please meet our lovely and most adorable Rocko. Here he is pictured at our sponsored walk, chilling out and enjoying the sun and watching all the goings on with the raffle. Rocko was surrendered to ASH with another dog called Honey. Honey has since gone to an amazing home there’s no doubt that it’s Rocko’s chance to shine now. Rocko is about 4-5 years old and is up there with one of the nicest dogs we have here. Rocko is a German Shepherd cross and is a big enough boy and he comes complete with a big heart! He has so much to offer the right person out there. He’s good on the lead and is good with other dogs too. He loves getting out for a long walk and equally loves chilling out afterwards. We’d love for this boy to land himself a fireside rug of his own to relax on. If you have room in your heart and home for a handsome boy like Rocko please get in touch with us and ask to visit him especially. You can take him out for a walk and a little chat and get to know him for yourself. All he’s hoping and asking for is an opportunity to shine. He’s such a great boy!!
Meet Stitch. He is one of the sweetest, most loving dogs you will ever encounter and the person that gets to give Stitch his loving home should count themselves as very lucky. Stitch is an 8 year old collie cross and he has spent much of his life up till now living in a back garden with no human interaction. This little fella was very nervous when he arrived and it has taken time for him to trust people again. Now, it’s almost as if he’s making up for all the love he has missed out on as he’s completely head over heels about people and can’t get enough cuddles and kisses. Stitch is good on the lead and is great around other dogs. Stitch has seen his brother Leeroy go home and surely it’s his turn now?? If you think you can give Stitch a loving home please get in touch with us we’d love to hear from you.
Glenda is a stunning lurcher cross. She was recently adopted from here and was returned. We really don’t know why as she has never been any trouble for us and is ok with other dogs but is not good with cats. Glenda is good on the lead and absolutely loves getting cuddles. Like all lurchers Glenda enjoys the comforts of a home and we really hope we can get her that forever home. Glenda promises to return any love she gets by the bucket load and we would love for someone special to come along and we could introduce you, spend a little time with her and get to know her. Please make that call.
Sid and Den
If you’re looking and hoping to find love and companionship in a couple of dogs … a couple of small dogs … a couple of friendly, loving and adorable small dogs who are best of pals themselves … please look no further. We’d like to introduce you to Sid and Den, two little JRTs who have found their way to ASH only because their owners emigrated. They are used to a happy family life and are quite simply gorgeous little fellas, so loving, well behaved and so very friendly. Den (with darker colourings) is 8 years old and Sid is 9 years old (surprisingly as they look so much younger, 4 or 5 maybe). They are best pals and we’re looking for a home for both dogs together. This may seem like a big ask but Sid and Den are meant to be together and if you met them you’d see why … instantly!! They make a great little double act and even have sharing their cuddles down to a tee … Sid rolls over for his rub while Den backs up against you for his cuddle (or in the pics Den rests his little feet on the cuddling arm!!). Sid n’ Den are guaranteed to bring so much love and happiness to the right home out there. We can think of nothing better than putting their best collars on for a visit from someone special out there. Please give us a call if you’d like to arrange to meet these boys. We’ll let them do all the talking then. Sid n’ Den are without a doubt worth it and if you believe you have the right forever home to offer them together we really would love to hear from you.
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 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.
Buddy is a Staffie, Labrador cross, he is one very handsome boy, and he knows it ! He is around one year old and he is a very lively boy. He was found straying in the Baltinglass area and he was brought to us. Buddy would be best suited to an active family as he has lots of energy to burn.
Tiffany, Lewis & Dutch
Tiffany (left) is a lovely lurcher girl. She came into ash two years ago when she was just a puppy when she was found straying and handed in. She is two and a half years old. She is a really stunning dog and has a really sleek coat. She is really affectionate and so deserves her chance. She gives amazing cuddles.
Lewis (middle) is another lurcher that has been in ash for two and a half years. He’s a lovely fella. He is such a handsome lurcher, and is good on the lead. He is now 4 years old. He is quite a timid chap with such a nice nature.
Dutch (right) shares his kennel with Lewis and they are the best of buds. They love going for their walk together. He has been in ash a while now and is two years old but still looks just like a puppy. Dutch was handed into a vet who then got in touch with ash.
Tiffany, Lewis and Dutch deserve to shine and a visit from someone special. Each of them are hoping for that chance to show someone out there just how lovely they are. Please get in touch if you’d like to visit either Tiffany, Lewis or Dutch.
Twinkle is a cute little terrier cross. She is only one year old. Twinkle was found straying in Arklow and brought to ASH. Shes a really lovely little lady, very calm and great on the lead. Please come and visit Twinkle and we’ll let her sparkle all by herself!!
Newton has been in ASH for a little too long. He is full of the joys of spring but has matured a lot now and is learning new things every day. He is a great fella and deserves a chance at a new home and most definitely a visit with someone who is willing to let Newton do the “talking”. Please get in touch to find out a little more about Newton or come and meet him.
Saorise came to us when she had a litter of lovely pups – all were rehomed but poor mum was left behind.
That was a few years ago and she’s still here. Why? Because she’s a big girl (but a very beautiful girl) and has always longed for someone with experience to take her home. She loves a good cuddle and is quite gentle with us humans. However like a lot of dogs she doesn’t like cats and can be a bit picky with other dogs. She just needs someone that can handle big dogs when out on walks – other than that she’s a real beauty and a firm fave of many of our more experienced dog walkers.
We are only looking for experienced dog owners who can handle a big dog like this lovely girl when out on a walk and have the space to give her to stretch her legs. At 9 years old she’s slowing down a bit and really needs a break at this stage in her life. Please call Helena if you think Saorise could share her last few years in the comfort of your home and share the love she can so give. She has so much to give but just never got that chance. We hope that this year could be her big break?
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!
Trigger is the most beautiful boy. He’s looking for an adult only home and is just asking for that chance to shine! He’s a real beauty and we hope that someone out there will give him that chance!
Zeta is a young female Lurcher who was found straying. There are so many people out there who don’t know much about Lurchers and how lovely they can be. Lurchers are very high on the list of our volunteer dog walkers favourites. Lurchers, like greyhounds, are one of the most loving and gentle breeds out there, lovely to walk, lovely to share the love, fun and great to have by your side and many owners tell us they are proud and lucky to have them in their homes. Zeta is no different and is very popular with our dog walking volunteers at the moment. They have nicknamed her antenna … one of her ears seems to be just that, bless. So if anyone out there is looking for the nicest possible Lurcher to decorate their couch look no more, Zeta is the girl. Please visit her and see for yourself!
Toss came in with another Collie Flash (who has been gone to be rehomed in the UK). Toss is a month younger and they were surrendered from the same home. He is so worthy of a chance and a little love. Some training and a little company is all he needs and we hope that someone looking for a Collie type dog will know this and come and visit him soon. He will be great given the chance. Please get in touch if you think you can offer him the same chance his friend Flash was given.
