    Flash (right) and Hobo (left) were surrendered to ASH as their owners circumstances changed and they were left with no choice but to find a new home for them.   Flash and Hobo are both male collie crosses and are just over two years old. They are very attached to each other and great pals. We’d absolutely love to find them a home together. Flash recently had a haircut and didn’t want his head shaved so he now looks a little like a lion. Bless.  These boys are vaccinated, microchipped and are neutered.   They are simply adorable, gentle fellas and want nothing more than a home to call their own where they will be spoilt and get all the love and attention they deserve.  Please do come and meet our boys, take them for a walk and let them do the talking.  They are special lads!

    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?

    Ciara

    Ciara is a beautiful collie that was found straying locally to ASH. Ciara is around 2-3 years old and she is a simply adorable lady. We were preparing her to get spayed and had a niggling thought she might be pregnant.  Turns out she was!

    We’ll have to rephrase when she is going to be up for rehoming now.  She will of course need to rear her babies first (see our News page).  GREAT NEWS CIARA IS BOOKED

     

     

     

     

    Cinnamon

    Cinnamon is another beautiful little lady that was found straying recently.   Cinnamon is 3-4 years old and is a gorgeous lady.

    Twinkle

    Twinkle came to ASH some time ago after she was found straying.  She is a terrier cross and she is around 2 years old. Twinkle loves people but she is not great with other animals. So she’s on the lookout for a home where she is the only pet and where there are no small children.   Twinkle can be a little dominant so we’re really hoping for a home where someone is willing to work with her and show her that she can’t always rule the roost.  Just look at her little cutie face … We really hope someone will come and ask to meet her and offer this little cutie a loving home.  All she really wants in life is to be loved and share all the love she can give.  Please come and visit her and you’ll see for yourself.

    Toss

    Toss is a simply beautiful collie that was surrendered to ASH some time ago. Toss had a rough start in life. He was locked in a shed and got little or no human interaction. He missed out on the crucial early socialisation as a puppy.    As a result it’s taken him a long time to trust new people. Toss hasn’t a bad bone in his body ! None of us have ever even heard him growl!! He’s just a little shy when he meets you first.   We are looking for a dedicated owner for Toss. Someone who is willing to come meet him in ASH and walk him a number of times, so he can get to know you before he goes to a home. He’s only 3 years old and he has so much love to give.   If you think you’ve got what it takes to give Toss a chance in life please get in touch with us we’d so love to introduce you to this lovely fella.

    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.

He is good on the lead and once he gets to know you he loves to give cuddles. He shares his kennel with Dutch another lurcher and the pair get on great.

He is a little bewildered to find himself in a rescue situation so we would love nothing more if someone could come forward and offer him a loving home.

If you can offer Billy a nice comfy home why not get in touch with us, we’d love to introduce you.

Come meet him, take him for a walk and get to know him..

    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.

    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.  We took Ash and Sandy along to our sponsored walk and their walkers fell a little bit in love with them (to say the least).  Ash and Sandy walked wonderfully on a loose lead and were so good with all the other dogs around them and they loved a little hug en-route!  Both dogs are house trained and are best pals.   Please check out a few pics we’ve posted from our sponsored walk with the lovely people who came and wanted to walk them especially. Why not come meet Ash & Sandy for yourself … take them for a walk and we’ll let them do the talking. 

    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.

    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.

    Gina

    The lovely Gina is a very sweet Lab cross that arrived into ASH with a litter of puppies which have since been rehomed. Gina is around 5 months old now and is a simply beautiful little puppy. We would so love to see Gina go to a home of her own. We know she’ll make someone very happy. Why not come meet her and get to know her.

    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!

    Harley


    Harley is a very handsome jack russell cross that came to us recently from a pound where his time was very quickly running out. Harley is 4-5 years old and is a great little fella. He is good on the lead and loves to get out and about. He came along with us on our sponsored walk this month and despite the wet weather (in the pic) he loved spending the time out from the shelter with his walkers.  They kicknamed him “Puddles” cause he just loved jumping into most of them on the way – bless him – he’s full of fun and loved his day out!  We really hope someone will come up and ask for him especially and hopefully make his little dreams come true!!  We’ll get his best collar on – he’d be thrilled to be asked for and meet you!

    Cheeno

    Meet little Cheeno, he is a simply adorable little bunny that was surrendered to us recently. Cheeno is now four months old and is a sweet little fella. He is very friendly and will make an amazing pet. Cheeno was surrendered to ASH as he was an unwanted gift and the family really didn’t have the lifestyle for a pet so they made the tough decision to find him a new home. All that aside Cheeno is now on the lookout for a loving home. So if you think there is room in your heart and home for Cheeno come meet him and get to know him.

    Nemo

    Nemo is a very handsome collie cross. He hasn’t had the easiest life up to now so we are really hoping someone out there can give him the loving home and comfy bed he so deserves. 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.

    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.

    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.

     

    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.

    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.

    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!
