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.
Gentle Giant is an adorable lurcher cross. He was found straying and was thankfully brought to ash. He is around 5 years old and is an amazing dog. He got his name because he is a really gentle guy. He is great with kids and other dogs. He would make an amazing family pet. Gentle Giant has been neutered so he is ready and waiting to go to his new home.

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.
Bruno is a very handsome Jack Russell cross. His owners didn’t have the time to give him all the love and attention he deserves. He is around two years old and is a lovely friendly little guy. Bruno is good on the lead and loves getting out and about. He is a great little guy and he will make someone very happy. If you have room in your life for a little pal like Bruno come meet him and let him do the talking.
Socky and Sarah
Socky and Sarah are two adorable collie cross doggies ! They were dumped on our road very late at night. Thankfully one of our neighbours saw them and kept them overnight so the whole shelter didn’t wake up! Socky is on the left and Sarah the right. They were very nervous when they first arrived and we suspect poor Sarah had just reared a litter of puppies. However now they are much braver and love to get out for a walk. They are between two to three years old and really are great little dogs. Its hard to tell from the pictures but they are in fact quite small and would make fantastic pets ! Please come meet them for yourself.
Please meet Kaiser. He’s hoping to find a loving new home because due to changes in his family he just isn’t getting the love and attention he needs. He is not yet in ASH but is on the waiting list once we find space. We really hope that someone out there will get in touch and give Kaiser a second chance. After all he has done nothing wrong. Kaiser is currently living with an 11 year old collie X and they get on brilliantly. He’s great around children. He loves nothing more than going for his walks but sadly due to the changes in the family he’s just not getting out enough and he really does love that part of his day. Please get in touch if you would like to meet Kaiser before he has to come into a rescue situation. He deserves another chance at a great home.
Josie is a wired hair terrier. She was found straying recently. The family that found her couldn’t keep her and thankfully brought her to us. This was a bit of a lucky save for Josie as we have just found out today that she is in fact pregnant ! ! We can just imagine how horrible it would have been for this poor girl if she was forced to have puppies on the street. No dog deserves that. Although Josie can’t be rehomed any time soon we would absolutely love if someone would come and offer her a home. It would be so great for her to have a lovely home waiting when she is done rearing her puppies. Please get in touch if you think you need the lovely Josie in your life.
Bindi is a very pretty collie cross. She was rehomed from us recently however one of the children in the household was highly allergic. Despite trying everything Bindi had to return to us. She is such a great dog and her family were so upset at having to part with her. Bindi is 3-4 years old is great with kids and great with other dogs. If you have room in your heart for a dog as loving as Bindi please get in touch with us.
This is Henry. He is a 5 year old beagle. He has lived in his current home since he was only a little pup. He’s been an absolutely great dog for all those years, very loyal and a great companion to his owners. However lately he has shown aggression towards the two young children in the house which is obviously not a good thing. He is a wonderful dog in superb physical condition who loves being outdoors. He has excellent stamina and often accompanies his owners off the leash on 5-10km hikes in the mountains. It is with a very heavy heart that they have reached the tough decision of looking for a new home for Henry. It would need to be an adult home though and a home where he can share all the companionship and love he can offer. Please get in touch if you would like to find out more. Henry will be coming to ASH as soon as we have space.
Jessies little girls
These are the Jessie pups (girls) They are a really cute little pair. They will most likely be similar in size as their mammy. For now we cannot allow people in to see them as they are so young and open to infection.
Jessies little boys
This little pair are the Jessie pups (boys). Their mums full story can be read below. They are still tiny little fellas and are not quite ready to go home yet but will grow to be little heart breakers.
Charlie is a special little boy. He’s a collie cross and he hasn’t had the most stable start in life. He is about 3-4 years old. He’s a sad case of outgrowing the puppy phase and was returned to the vet (who originally rescued him). Thankfully that vet got in touch with us. Charlie is as a result a little nervous of people. However as soon as he gets to know you he loves getting out for his walk and loads of cuddles en-route. Charlie will need a special owner who will have lots of time and loads of love to give him. We’d love if we could find that owner for him, because he really does deserve it. Please get in touch and we can arrange a visit if you think you have what it takes to help and home our Charlie. We’d 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 young 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.
This very handsome collie cross Buddy is so hoping he can find a loving new home. His current owners are very reluctantly having to ask us to help find him his special new home because they are now expecting a new baby and are already finding it hard to give him all the time and love he needs. Buddy originally came from ASH 5 years ago and is such a great dog. He is great with children and a very smart boy. He loves to play fetch, loves swimming in the sea and is great fun to be with. He’ll sit and stay when he’s told, doesn’t pull on the lead and is a great little guard dog. He really is such a fabulous all rounder and all he is hoping for is a home where he can share in all the love he can give. Someone out there will be a very lucky person indeed to gain such a friend and companion. Please get in touch if you would like to meet Buddy.
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.
This poor boy was also on a farm and they no longer needed him! Peter is quite nervous at the moment and just finding his feet in ASH. We don’t think this is something that can’t be fixed. He’s not afraid of people which is the main thing and sadly we suspect he may have been kept on a chain. We’d love to think that a whole lot of TLP (time love and patience) would resolve any issues Peter has and we’ll certainly work on that. He’s such a handsome and lovely fella, we’ll certainly give him a little time and hope that one day soon that right someone, in the right circumstances, could offer him everything he needs and so deserves … he is very lovely! Do come and meet him if you are that someone.
Please meet the gorgeous Ebony. She is still living with her owners at the moment. Ebony is a Lurcher girl and only one year old. Her owners are finding it hard to manage finding time for Ebony in busier than ever lives and feel that Ebony is missing out on all the love and attention she deserves.
Ebony has such a gentle nature, is eager to please and a fast learner (like many Lurchers). Ebony absolutely loves human contact and companionship. She’s a very relaxed dog around the house and spends most of her day flopped out in her bed. When not relaxing she loves to run so a big garden or a routine daily walk is essential. Thats what she needs and deserves. Training and monitoring is required for her to live harmoniously with cats or chickens (should that apply). Ebony is a pretty big girl, she’s a very striking girl though and will be the talk of any park or on any walk. Because of her size she’s not really suitable for families with very small children. We would absolutely love to hear from someone who could offer Ebony a home where she can get her daily walk, is allowed chill out in the home and share all the love she has to give. She’s a real beauty and we’d love to see Ebony enjoying life with someone special out there who can offer her all the love and happiness she deserves.
Meet Cliff. Cliff came to ASH 2 years ago. He was a stray found in Carlow and luckily someone picked him up. He was rehomed since then however sadly his owners circumstances changed and he came back to ASH through absolutely no fault of his own. Cliff is back a while since now and is desperately hoping his chance will come again. He is a stunning boy and is Lab/german shepherd cross. He’s great on the lead and is such a lovely boy who had done nothing wrong to find himself back in ASH, poor fella. He is most definitely worth a visit from someone out there. Please think about Cliff and do come and visit him. Please give us a buzz before you come and let us know you are coming so we can have someone ready to introduce you. We’d love to meet you as would our Cliff.
Taylor is a stunning lurcher that was “dumped” in ASH a few months ago. She arrived with another lurcher called Lily, who has recently been rehomed. Taylor really hopes its her turn soon. She is only young – no more than two years old. She’s a stunning looking girl and has such a smooth sleek coat. When Taylor arrived she was so emaciated you could easily count all her ribs. Her back bone was protruding and she was quite shy of us.
Since then our lovely Taylor has come along in leaps and bounds. She’s now fit and healthy and absolutely loves a bit of affection. She really enjoys getting out and about for a walk and cuddles and is great on the lead. She has no issues with other dogs and has shared her kennel other dogs but cats are something she likes to chase (just as many dogs do). Like most lurchers Taylor is very undemanding, a walk in the morning and evening and she’ll be more than happy to laze around for the day. All she really needs is a whole lotta love and we know there is someone special out there who will promise to care for her forever. We’re hoping that you could be that person and will pick up the phone or hop in the car and come on up and meet her in person. We’d love to introduce you and let her shine all by herself!
Alex is a stunning belgian shepherd cross. He had a bit of a hair cut and a good brushing today and he looks fab! He can be a little strong on the lead to start but that can be fixed with a little training. He is very friendly and can even sit on command. Alex is hoping for someone who will be able to manage a strong enough dog – clearly he’s very trainable so if anyone out there is willing to offer him a chance he’ll be a great companion to someone special. We’re hoping for a home without young kids. No reflection on him mind you. Please get in touch if you’d like to meet Alex. He’s desperate to get his break in life and has been trying to prove himself ever since he came to ASH quite some time ago.
Annie is a beautiful staffie. She is relatively young and is such an affectionate girl. She can be quite strong on the lead but that’s nothing that can’t be fixed whatsoever. We’d love to hear from someone who would like to meet Annie and offer her a life, love and home she so deserves.
Meet Shadow. His extended family and is owner are so sad to have to surrender him but he was living with a slightly older lady and Shadow was just a little too playful for her. Shadow needs a home where he gets all the attention and love he deserves and they recognised that. Shadow is fantastic around children and he really likes to play with them. Shadow hasn’t come to ASH yet (we have to find space!) but he is on the list to come very very soon and we’d really love to get his name and lovely face out there before he does. We’d love to hear from anyone who might be interested to meet him and we could arrange this. He’s a great fella and just needs the right home with people who can offer him all the fun love and walks he needs. Please give us a call if you’d like to meet him.
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.
** BOOKED** 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!
Poor Sushi is yet another poor dog who was just dumped here! Like most Staffies she is super with people but not always great with other dogs and most definitely not with cats. Sushi is a young adult and would love an experienced person to come forward and give her a chance. If you think that’s you please get in touch with us.
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.
