  • Chom

    Meet Chom! This lovely big fella is a 15 month old Newfoundland who is looking for a new home as his owners are emigrating.  He is housetrained, he’s good with other dogs and kids (although he didn’t grow up with kids).  Chom hasn’t arrived in ASH yet so if you are interesting in offering Chom a home please email us at ashrescue@gmail.com and we’ll get in touch with you then.  Lovely boy!

    Mumford & Sonny

    Mumford and Sonny were found straying recently. We had hoped to find their owner however nobody has come forward.   Mumford is a pointer cross, he is 1-2 years old and is such a gorgeous dog, he just loves people and gets so excited when you give him cuddles…

    Sonny is a terrier cross and he is 2 years old. Sonny is a gorgeous dog, he loves getting out for a walk and also loves his cuddles. Mumford and Sonny can be rehomed together as they are attached to each other. Why not come meet them, take them for a walk and get to know them for yourself?

    Fifi

    Fifi is a very cute mini Jack russell that was found straying and brought to ASH. Fifi had a big cut on her side which needed stitches. We think she may have caught herself in barbed wire. Fifi is a year old and we all adore her here but we’d love to see her in a home of her own. Why not come meet her, get to know her and let her do the talking

    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.

    Benito

    Meet Benito!! Benito is a very sweet lurcher puppy that is on the lookout for a home to call his own. He’s only 14 weeks old and is such a sweet fella.

    Cindy

Like all collies she is very intelligent and we know she could make someone very happy. Cindy is good on the lead and great with other dogs. Why not come meet her, take her for a walk and get to know her.

    Fudge

    Jack

    Jack is a very sweet Jack Russell terrier that was found straying and brought to the safety of ASH. Jack is now on the lookout for a new loving home. He is 1-2 years old and he’s a sweet boy. He would be best suited to an adult only home as he’s not used to being around children. Jack deserves nothing but happiness. If you think you can give him that please get in touch with us.

    Xavier

    Meet the ever so handsome Xavier. Xavier came to ASH as he was found straying in Carnew. Nobody came forward for this stunning boy sadly so the lovely Xavier is now on the lookout for a new loving home. Xavier is around a year old and he is a stunning dog we think he is a bernese mountain dog/german shepherd cross. He is a little shy and given his size we would prefer to see him go to an adult only home. Xavier will be a great pet all he needs is someone to give him a chance to show that special person what he’s all about.

    The “Laois Ten” puppies

    This little fella is one 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!! There is only one girl in the litter and 9 boys. We only have one boy here in ASH at the moment as we don’t have the space to take them all. Two more will be joining us later next week. Mammy is now neutered and is very much loved so we hope the same for these cuties… 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

     

    Jim n’ Holly

    These two beautiful dogs were surrendered to ASH recently as their owners circumstances changed. They are springer spaniels and are such sweethearts. Jim is the brown and white one she is a girl despite her name ! She is 2 years old. Holly is the other and she is 6 years old but still looks like a puppy ! They have always been together so it would be nice to get them a home together. If you think you can offer these beautiful dogs a loving home please get in touch with us.

    Kiki

    Little Kiki is a simply adorable terrier cross puppy. She is one of a litter of puppies that was dumped in a cardboard box at a bus station. All her siblings were rehomed and it’s now only fair if Kiki gets a home of her own – she has waited so very patiently too.  Kiki is only 4 months old and is such a sweet girl. She is now walking on the lead and is so full of fun.  If you think you can offer her a home please get in touch with us.  If you think you can offer our little Kiki her golden ticket out of rescue and into a loving new home we’d love to introduce you to this little lady. We’ll let her take it from there … no better little lady!

    Ash & Sandy

    Ash and Sandy are two divine lurchers that were surrendered to ASH as their owners circumstances changed.  Ash is the grey one and she is 4 years old and Sandy is 8 years old. They are amazing dogs and we really want to find them a home together as they just love each others company. They are good on the lead and good with other dogs. They are house trained and what’s more to say other than they need a nice comfy home where they can live happily together. Why not come meet them, take them for a walk and let them do the talking 

    Cliff

    Cliff is a simply adorable Labrador cross that was surrendered to ASH as he was showing a little too much interest in livestock, this is nothing to worry about once you have a fenced garden (or live nowhere near livestock of course)!  Cliff is four years old and he is such an amazing boy. Cliff is good on the lead, good with other dogs, good with cats and good with children.  Pretty good we’d say.  He is also fully house trained – now pretty good looking and good too!!  What isn’t to love?  Cliff will make some lucky person an amazing companion. If you think you need this very handsome fella in your life why not come meet him, take him for a walk and get to know him for yourself?  We’d love to introduce you

    Hope

    This beautiful lady came to us last week and she really broke our heart. Hope was found straying in Bray last week.   As you can imagine being alone on the streets is traumatic for any dog. For little Hope it was that bit worse as this poor little lady is blind.

    Hope is only 4-5 years old and was most likely born blind, although we can’t say for sure. She was very shy when she first came in but is slowly but surely coming out of her shell.. I guess she now knows that none of us here want to hurt her. We really don’t understand how a little dog like this can end up on the streets.

    We will continue to give her plenty of love and tlc until she can be offered a loving home.   Hope will need a special home, preferably with no young children as it would be too much for her to deal with. A nice comfy bed by the fire and plenty of TLC is all she asks for.

    Carlow Boxer x pups

    These little babies were all found abandoned at the side of the road in Carlow recently. They are boxer crosses and are only 8 weeks old and are absolutely adorable! They definitely deserved better than being dumped so heartlessly. They are all female and each one is as cute as the other. These little girls will be available for adoption once they are fully vaccinated. They so deserve a good start in life. If you think you can offer one of these a loving home, please get in touch with us.

    Rocky

    ** BOOKED ** This big fella is called Rocky, he is a boxer, rottweiler cross that was surrendered to ASH as his owner didn’t have the time to give him the love and attention he needs. Rocky is a bit strong on the lead but that’s to be expected given his size. He is okay around some dogs but doesn’t like cats. Rocky is a simply gorgeous dog and he is so friendly, we know he’ll make someone very happy. Come meet him, take him for a walk and get to know him, he won’t disappoint.

    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.

    Gunther

    ** BOOKED ** Gunther is a simply adorable Springer, Collie cross that was found straying and brought to the safety of ASH. Gunther is 1 and a half to two years old and he is the sweetest fella. He is good on the lead, good with other dogs and just loves interacting with people. He’s also quite mannerly! If you think you can offer Gunther a loving home, why not come meet him, take him for a walk and get to know him for yourself.  We’ll let him take it from there!!

    Angel

    Angel is a gorgeous dog that came to ASH in October 2011.  Angel was very traumatised and was heavily pregnant but unfortunately all her puppies died shortly after birth. We have no idea of her past but she was pretty much a feral dog.  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…

    Bambi

    Little Bambi was found straying over a week ago in Carlow. We had hoped we’d find an owner, but it was not to be and she is now on the lookout for a home of her own.  Bambi is 1-2 years old and has so clearly had a very hard time in life up till now. She is a little shy around new people and takes a few minutes to come out of her shell. We can only guess that she was mistreated in the past. Bambi’s jaw is a little off line where we think she was knocked down and it was never treated and thus set in the way it is now, it’s not very obvious, just a little off line and it doesn’t affect her at all! She’s a happy little lady and deserves all the good things in life.

    Bambi is currently in foster care and will be coming to ASH once a space becomes available. We are really hoping for a quite home for this girl with no young children. She’s a very sweet and gentle lady and wants nothing more to snuggle up beside you on the couch. If you think you can be the one to show Bambi the good things in life please get in touch with us, we’d love to introduce you !

    Teddy & Molly

    The lovely Teddy and Molly are two simply adorable Bichon Frise that were surrendered to ASH recently. Their owners circumstances changed which means she could no longer give them the love and attention they deserve. Teddy and Molly were pampered pooches all their lives and their owner adored them so we’re really hoping someone can come forward and give them an equally good home together. Teddy is 9 years old and Molly is 7 years old but they are both fit and healthy. They are very attached to each other and must be rehomed together. They are neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, house trained, good on the lead, good with cats and good with other dogs. Now all they need is someone to love them. Why not get in touch if you think you can offer them just that.

    Jacob

    Jacob is an adorable jack Russell cross that was found straying and brought to the safety of ASH. Jacob is medium in size, he looks like a jack Russell but he’s got longer legs he is only around a year old and he’s a happy fella. Jacob is an absolute sweetheart and he’ll make a great companion for some lucky person.

    Shillelagh puppies

    Our very sweet Shillelagh puppies are with us weeks now and so far not one person has come to visit them??. They were dumped at the side of the road in Shillelagh and brought to the safety of ASH. We had really hoped we’d find them a new home straight away but they’re still waiting. They are three months old and are simply adorable ! Why not come and give them a chance at a new life…they are too cute for words!  GREAT NEWS for the pup on the right who has gone home!!!

Hudson is neutered, vaccinated and great with dogs and kids.  He’s a joy on the lead and very well mannered around the house.  He loves human and dog company so a home with another dog but no cats is preferable.  He’s also currently in basic obedience training at Wonder Paws in Bray and in his spare time enjoys Agility, cuddles and snoozing on the sofa!  If you think you can offer this lovely fella the forever home he dreams of and would like to arrange to meet him please email us at ashlm@eircom.net and we’ll pass on your details straight away to his foster parents!

    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!

    George & Gilbert

    George & Gilbert are brothers and all of us here simply adore them!  They were surrendered to ASH a few months back as their owners circumstances changed.  They are German shepherd/Newfoundland crosses and they are just over a year old. George & Gilbert are big fellas so they will need some training, they are strong on the lead as you’d expect with two big dogs like these beauties but they quickly settle in and really enjoy their walk.  George & Gilbert are extremely attached to each other and so we are looking for a home for these two together. If you think you are the right someone who can offer these stunning and adorable boys a loving home together please come meet them and get to know them for yourself.  We could think of nothing better than introducing you to this pair!

    Alfie

    Stanley

     

    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.

    Jackson

    Jackson is a handsome collie x he is about 2 years old and was surrendered to ASH recently. Jackson is a big guy with bundles of energy so we are looking for an active family to meet his needs. Jackson is good on the lead and really loves to get out and about. If you can offer this handsome fella a loving home please get in touch with us.

    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.

     

    Sushi

     

    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!

     

    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 good on the lead and is very friendly. Sebastian is a big boy but is very mannerly, he will make a great pet for some lucky person.

    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.

    Buddy Brown

    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

    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

    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.

    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

    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!

    Toss

    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.
