    Hi.  I’m really good with other dogs and just love a foot to rest on during evening TV.  Maybe tomorrow someone will come for me and ask for me especially?  I really want to go home and promise I will be a great, fun friend and companion in any home. Please ask for me – Pirate

     

    Paddy

    Aww look at little Paddy.  He’s a 9 year old Cavalier King Charles spaniel.  This poor lad was surrendered to ASH due to a change in circumstances.  He’s a great boy, good with cats and dogs too.  Paddy lives (and now hopes) for a nice comfy bed, maybe a fireside rug and a foot to snooze on (and warm) in the winter months.  He loves a walk where he can enjoy the smells of others that have walked before him and returning to his home where he gets a little snuggle and love from his besties!    If you think you can help Paddy escape from rescue and welcome him into your hearts and home please come up and meet him for yourself.  We’d love to introduce you and he’d be beside himself to meet you.   This little pud deserves a special place in a home he can call his own.

    Shep

    This stunningly handsome boy is Shep.  His big sin in life was chasing his owners hens!  Nothing at all to be worried about in the slightest if you don’t have or live near hens that’s for definite.  Shep is 7 years old and has bundles of love n’ cuddles on offer and is a gentle lad.  He’s a super dog to walk on the lead.  We’re not sure we could phrase it better than one of our volunteers who said “Shep is an incredibly beautiful dog, so calm and well balanced.  He is very approachable and walking him is a pure pleasure“.  In fairness, he is a bit of a stunner and would the pride of any park and home not to mention the fact that he’s such a great boy.  We’re sure he’ll make someone out there (without hens in their lives/vicinity) very happy indeed and visa versa.  Please come and ask for Shep especially.  We’ll put his best collar let him strut his stuff when he’s out on a walk with you.  He’s a great boy and really does deserve a second chance in the right home.  Can you offer him that?

    Gerdie

     

    This adorable little lady, Gerdie is one of the Grogan pups.  She’s a collie lab x and is the smallest of our cutie Grogan puppies – she’s only about 4 months old.  She’s such a dote, so calm, enjoys a little fun and just loves n’ craves loads of cuddles and love.  Gerdie loves her weekly visits to Wonder Paws Puppy school, where she’s already learning little tricks and socialisation skills.  No better pup! This wee lady is guaranteed to make the right person/family out there a super companion, family dog and best pal.  She has been waiting so very patiently for the her big chance to prove that to the right person.  We can’t wait to watch on as she trots proudly out of our gate and into the forever home she’s longing for.  Please come and visit her especially.  She’d love to meet you.

     

    Rosie (mum)

    Please meet our Rosie.  Rosie has recently reared five puppies and she is now ready for a home of her very own. Rosie is roughly 2 years old, she’s good on the lead, good with other dogs and just an all round sweetheart, can you offer her a loving home?  Please come and make her dreams come true by asking for her by name.  She’d love that, her pups are well on the way to living the dream but we think she deserves to live that dream too in her own right!

     

    The Grogan puppies

    ** SERIOUS CUTE FACTOR ALERT **  We’re delighted to introduce the very adorable Grogan pupsters.  These little pups were an unexpected litter and there are 6 pups in total.  2 boys (in blue) and 4 girls (in pink).  We can’t say for sure but we’re told mummy was a Labrador, daddy a collie but one thing’s for sure –  they are very very cute.   All of these little puppies so deserve loving home homes and not to be in rescue.  If you think you can offer any of them that golden ticket out of rescue and into your home … please come and meet them for yourself.  Check out our rehoming page HERE for details on adoption etc.

    Lucy

    ** BOOKED ** Meet Lucy, this gorgeous lady is a Scottish terrier and at the age of 7 she is looking for a loving home where she will be pampered like the princess she is ! Lucy was surrendered to ash and since she’s got here she’s been extremely well behaved, she even had a groom with no problems. Lucy is looking for an adult only home, she is good on the lead, good with other dogs and just a nice easu going lady, can you offer her a loving home?

    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.

     

    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.

    Meeko

     

    Our lovely Meeko has been with us since he was 10 weeks old and as much as we love him, he really does deserve his very own human to look after him. Meeko celebrated his first birthday at our sponsored walk in Avondale House on 12 June.  He loved the whole day.  He is such a gorgeous lad, good with dogs and cats and just a nice happy fella, why not come meet him, take him for a walk and get to know him.  See his b-day pics HERE

    Rocky

    Meet Rocky, this poor fella is feeling a little down in himself, his owner passed away recently and he now needs a home where he can live out his days in happiness. He is 8 years old and he’s a terrier cross. Rocky would be an ideal pet for someone elderly looking for a dedicated pal.

Easy is 4-5 years old and she is an extremely happy girl that loves people. Easy is good with other dogs but a cat free home is a must. If you can offer her a loving home please get in touch.

    Rocky

     

    Meet the lovely Rocky.  Rocky is a Boxer x.  He is almost 4 years old.   Our Rocky is an absolutely adorable boy.  He can be a strong enough on the lead but with a harnass with front ring that problem is easily solved.  With a little extra training we’re sure all that will be eliminated anyway.  Rocky loves a wee selfie with his walkers who love him to bits.  We are so hoping out Rocky will get his chance to meet that special someone.  Please come and visit Rocky – we’d love nothing more than to introduce you and we’re absolutely sure he’d love it too!  He’s a joy!

     

     

     

    Athena

    Meet Athena, this beautiful lady came to us a few months back in really bad condition, she had clearly been living in her own faeces, she was very underweight and had a really bad ear infection. Athena is doing much better now, she has put on weight and she’s an amazing lady. Athena is elderly at roughly ten years old. She is in general good condition but her rear legs are weak so she can’t do too much exercise. Athena needs a cat free retirement home. Can you offer her just that.

    Patty

    This gorgeous snuggle monster is Patty. She was dumped here at ASH and she is a gorgeous lurcher girl. Patty is 2-3 years old and while she adores people she isn’t so great with other dogs or cats, so a home where she is the only pet is a must. We all love her here surely someone can offer her a home??

    Winston

    Meet Winston. This gorgeous fella was rehomed from ASH recently and unfortunately there was a change in circumstances which meant they had no choice but to return him. Both Winston and his famiy were very upset so we’re really hoping someone can offer him a loving home ? He is only 2-3 years old, he’s good on the lead, good with other dogs and great with kids. Surely someone can offer him a five star home ???

    Lola

    Meet Lola, this gorgeous girl was surrendered to ASH due to a change in circumstances. Lola is 5 years old and she’s a medium sized terrier cross. Lola is a total cuddle monster, she just loves people and everyone loves her ! Lola is okay with most dogs and she’s house trained. 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.

    Ella

    Ella is a stunning, German shepherd, rottweiler cross that came to ASH along with her brother Rocky. Ella was spayed this week and we now want to see her in a home of her own. Ella is 2.5 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!

    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.

    Avon

    Meet Avon. This beautiful lady was surrendered to ASH recently due to a change in circumstances. Avon is 5 and a half years old and she is a beautiful little lady, she is good on the lead, okay with some other dogs and she needs a nice comfy home to call her own. Avon needs an adult only home as she has had some issues around children in the past. We won’t hold that against her. If you can offer her a loving home we’d love to hear from you

    Ben

    Meet Ben.  Ben is a shih tzu that was surrendered to ASH due to a change in circumstances.  He has been with us since February and he recently had a hair cut so we thought it time he gets a new picture. Ben is 6 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.

    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 recently and brought to the safety of ash.  Alfalfa is a Jack russell cross and he’s only about 2-3 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.

     

    Marilyn

    Marilyn is a very pretty St Bernard that was surrendered to ASH due to a change in her circumstances.  Marilyn will be four years old next month.  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 and who knows she may even get to celebrate her big “FIVE” birthday with them too? That would be the best birthday present she could ever hope to receive!

    Bingo

    Bingo is a gorgeous Jack Russell that was surrendered to ASH as his owner sadly passed away. Bingo is only 3 years old and he is just a gorgeous boy.  He is good on the lead and good with other dogs. Bingo can be a little shy around young children so he would be best suited to an adult home or a home with older children. If you think you can give Bingo a second chance in life why not come meet him – he’d love to meet you for sure!

    Sadie

     

    Sadie is a beautiful german shepherd, husky cross that was found straying recently and brought to the safety of ASH.  She is about two to three years old and she is just a gorgeous lady.  She’s good on the lead and adores people.  She gets on okay with other dogs but would be best suited to a home as the only dog or with a male dog for company.   We took her along on our sponsored walk and she walked happily with one of our volunteers and wasn’t at all phased with all the dogs and people around her.  Sadie is a big enough girl (we’re sure she wont mind us saying) so she’ll need plenty of exercise and you can be sure she’s got bags of love to give to that special person(s) out there.  Please do come and visit her if you think you might be able to offer a loving home. We’d love to introduce you.  Here she is having a run/walk with our volunteers and was back smiling for cuddles when asked.

     

    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.

    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

    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?

    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.

    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..

    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.

    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!

    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.
