  • Scout

    Everyone meet our gorgeous boy Scout. Scout first came to ASH in December last year. He was seen being thrown from the window of a car in Carlow town. The day he arrived he was no more than four weeks old. We bottle fed him and when we felt he was strong enough we found him a new home which we had hoped would be forever.

    Unfortunately it wasn’t to be and just over a month ago our beautiful Scout arrived back with us here in ash. Scout is now roughly 9 months old and he’s grown into a beautiful lurcher bursting with the joys of life and is very affectionate and loves cuddles!

    Scout missed out on some crucial training, we’re hoping we can start his training now and help him advance to a new home.

    Scout is a big bouncy boy and yes he is a bit strong on the lead but he’s a sweet boy and we’d love to see him with a family who will love him FOREVER! Will you be the one to offer him a loving home?

    Belle

    ** BOOKED ** Meet our sweetheart Belle. This lovely girl with incredible eyes was found straying and brought to the safety of ASH. Belle is a border collie and she is only about a year old.  She’s a shy natured girl.  We’re sure that with a bit of TLP (time love and patience) she will shine and come out from her little shell.   Belle is already making great progress trusting people every minute of every day.  We guarantee you’ll fall in love with her at first sight.  Please come and ask to meet her especially when we’ll have her best collar on and let her “talk” to you then.  We think she’d love that and we know we’d love to introduce you to this stunningly beautiful girl who’ll be the pride of any home, park, walk – she just asks for the chance to show “you” that.

     

    Ash

    ** BOOKED ** Meet Ash.  This gorgeous fella is a Labrador Great Dane cross and, as you may notice from his photos, he’s a feeling a bit bewildered and upset to find himself in rescue.  His heartbroken owner had to surrender him to us last weekend due to an unfortunate change in circumstances.  Ash is 7 years old and was a very much loved pet so he is fully house trained, grew up with children, good with other dogs and an all round gentle giant.  A truly great boy.  If you simply can’t resist his lovely face, nature and exceptionally good looks please give us a call and/or come up and ask for him especially.  He’s holding out for a loving home where he can continue living the dream and where his family are used to having such a gentle giant wandering about the house.  Please do come and meet this boy! We’re sure he will fulfil someones dreams out there and visa versa!   Please get in touch.

    Budda

     

    The lovely Budda came to ASH this week after he was found straying. He is 7-8 years old and he’s a lovely chilled out man. Budda is looking for an adult only home as kids may be too much for him to deal with. No reflection on him as he is a great little man. Why not come meet him, take him for a walk and get to know him

    Sonny & Tiny Tiny

    ** BOOKED ** Meet our lovely Sonny & Tiny Tiny.  This sweet pair were surrendered to ASH recently as their owner had to move to a pet free home.   Tiny Tiny is 4 years old and such a sweet girl – Sonny is only 2 years old and a beautiful little fella.  They are both real sweethearts who can bring only joy and happiness to a home.  Both of them are very cuddly and simply adore people.  They are all round very sweet and gentle dogs who frankly love everything and everyone.  They are best buds.  If you think you are in a position to offer this adorable pair the home they deserve and dream of please do get in touch.  They’d love to meet you and we know you’ll love them within seconds!

    Phoebe

    ** BOOKED ** Meet our sweetheart Phoebe. Our girl is 6 years beautiful Bassett Hound, who was recently surrendered to us due to change in circumstances.  Phoebe is great on the lead, she’s good with dogs and good with cats too.  She’s an all round beautiful and very happy lady – it’s a pleasure to be around her.  If you think you can offer our sweet Phoebe her forever home please get in touch to let us know if you’d like to come and meet her especially.  We know you’ll love her as much as we do here in ASH.

    Marilyn

    Marilyn is a very pretty St Bernard that was surrendered to ASH due to a change in her circumstances.  Marilyn will is 5 years old.  She’s quite a big girl so we’re looking for a home with someone who has experience with big breeds and understands their needs.  She is without doubt very gorgeous girl and  has so much love to give.  She can’t wait to meet her new family!

    Ella

    Ella is a stunning, German shepherd, rottweiler cross that came to ASH along with her brother Rocky. Ella is spayed and we now want to see her in a home of her own. Ella is 3 years old, she is okay around other dogs and isn’t too phased with cats. Ella is a big girl so she does pull a little on the lead – nothing that a little bit of training wouldn’t stop.  She so deserves a home of her own and we’re hoping that special someone will come knocking and ask to meet this lovely lady especially – she’d be thrilled!

    Peter

      

    Peter was born on a farm and received very little if any human contact before he came to Ash. 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.

     

    Kaiser

     

    Meet Kaiser …  this handsome fella was surrendered to ASH recently.  He’s only 3 years old and full of energy and love.  Ok, so he’s not good with cats but he’s ok with some dogs just not necessarily all.  That said he really is a gorgeous fella and we’d love if someone were to come up and visit him and offer him the five star home he deserves and lives for.   Please come and meet him and give him a chance.

    Millie

    ** BOOKED ** Meet our sweetheart Millie.  Millie is a Sprollie and she is 2 and a half years old.  She is good with children, house trained, lead trained and very sweet indeed. She is energetic and needs an active owner or family.  What’s not to love?  If you can offer our sweet Millie forever home please get in touch. You will love her as much as we do.

    Shankley

    Poor Shankley was recently adopted from ASH and with a very heavy heart his new owners had to return him as he wasn’t getting along with the other dog in the household.  Shankley wanted to play all the time  and it proved too much for his new pal.  He’s such a wonderful, adorable and very affecionate 18 monts old red Doberman.  He loves cuddles and is just marvellous around people.  We are looking for a home where he is the only dog.  He’s a little strong on the lead but that’s easily fixed with a bit of training (we’re working on that).   If you think you can offer this exceptionally handsome lovely boy a second chance … he’d love to meet you and we’d love to introduce you.  He most definitely deserves it.  He’s a great boy.

    Tiny

    Meet Tiny, this gorgeous little man was surrendered to ASH recently and we’re really hoping someone out there can offer him a loving new home.  Tiny is a Jack Russell, he is 7 years old and he’s such a sweet boy. Tiny was surrendered because he was being territorial over his garden and after 7 years in his own home he’s a little bewildered to find himself in rescue!!   He’s such a quiet boy, he’s good on the lead and not too bothered with other dogs either.  Tiny is on the lookout for an adult only home simply because he just likes his own space and children may be too much for him.   Tiny is fully house trained and a little character.   Please come and meet him for yourself … we’ll let Tiny will do most of the talking then.

    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.

    Ben

    Meet Ben.  Ben is a shih tzu that was surrendered to ASH due to a change in circumstances.  Ben is 7 years old and he is a gorgeous little man and we know in the right home he will shine. Ben is good on the lead and is fully house trained. He does however have issues around other dogs and we’d like to see him go to a home where he will be king of the castle. Ben would also be best suited to an adult only home. If you think you can offer him the loving home he so deserves please get in touch with us.

    Manwell

    Manwell is an ever so handsome Jack Russell cross that came to ASH after he was found straying. Manwell is a great little man and he just loves interacting with people. Manwell however isn’t great with other dogs so a home where he is the only dog would be best suited to him. If you think you can give Manwell a loving home where he’ll get all the love and tlc he deserves please get in touch with us.

    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.

    Alfalfa

    Our lovely Alfalfa is on the lookout for a home of his very own.  He’s a very handsome fella who was found straying and brought to the safety of ash.  Alfalfa is a Jack russell cross and he’s only about 3-4 years old.  This lad is good on the lead, good around most dogs and has bundles of love to offer! If you’d like to meet him please come on up and visit him, he’d love that.  We’d love to introduce you too.

     

    Pongo

    Meet Pongo, this gorgeous fella was surrendered to ash last week, his owner hadn’t bargained for the energy levels of a dalmation.  But hey, he’s no different, no less lovely but just needs exercise like any dog of his size.  We are hoping someone out there with an active lifestyle can offer him a loving home.  Pongo is only 2 years old, he’s a gorgeous boy who just needs someone to love him and one things for sure they can walk proudly with him anywhere – he’s a stunner and a good boy.

     

    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..

    George

     

    George has somehow been overlooked by so many for a few years.  He’s good on the lead and loves to get out for his walk.  We are looking for an adult only home for our George.  We hope this little fellas day will come soon when that special someone will come and ask about him especially.  He is a little shy at first but possibly that’s because he’s been in rescue for so long.  We’re so hoping his time will come given a chance and a special meet n’greet request?  Please give us a call or email us ashlm@eircom.net if you would like to meet him – we’ll put his best collar on and prep him!

    Twinkle

     

    Twinkle came to ASH after she was found straying.  She is a terrier cross and she is around 4 years old.  Twinkle loves everyone but she’s not always that great with other animals.  Our Twinkle is a little princess and rightly so and she has that princess glow and love – someone somewhere will hopefully give our Twinkle her golden ticket from rescue – or at least that chance to proof herself!  All we ask for her is that our girl has a loving home where she is the only pet and where there are no small children.  If you think you’d like to meet her we’d be sure to let her know and she would be prepping all night for certain.  Please ask for her especially and give her a chance.

We’d love to introduce you.  Here she is having a run/walk with our volunteers and was back smiling for cuddles when asked.

Surely someone can offer him a five star home ???

Lola so deserves a five star home why not come meet her and get to know her.

    Prancer

    Prancer came to ASH Christmas 2012 and we gave her the name Prancer after Santa’s reindeers as we so thought Prancer would go home and get a new name which isn’t so festive! Unfortunately she’s still with us.  Much and all as we love Prancer we really feel she deserves a home to call her very own. Prancer is a female Jack Russell terrier, she was found straying in Dublin and was brought to ash. She is 2-3 years old and is a great little lady. She is full of life and loves to get out for a walk and we’d so love to hear from anyone who is in a position to offer little Prancer all the love and good things in life that she so deserves. She is a little lively so a home with small children wouldn’t be advised but we all love her so we hope you will too. Please get in touch with us if you can offer her the loving home she deserves. She’d love to meet you.

    Ariel

    Meet Ariel – this beautiful lady was adopted from ASH over a year ago and recently surrendered again as she snapped at her owner.  Unfortunately Ariel can be a bit cheeky like that – not all the time just sometimes when things aren’t going her way.  Ariel is looking for an adult only home with an understanding owner who has the time and patience to train her.

    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?
