    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.

If you think that could be your home please come and ask for her especially, take her for a walk and get to know her a little.  We know Rosie will take it from there …


    Patch

    Patch is a stunning collie cross that came to ASH along with his sister Bracken.  Their owner couldn’t give them the attention they needed and deserved so they were surrendering to us.  Patch is four years old and is quite shy.   It took one of our volunteers 3 hours of sheer determination to convince him to come out for a stroll yet the second he came out he was thrilled to bits!!  Patch is slowly progressing and we’d love to see him in a home of his own with the right person(s).  Patch is best suited to an adult only home as we’re pretty sure he couldn’t handle the excitement of young kids.  If you would like to meet this special lad who has so much to offer please do get in touch with us.

    Rio

    Our gorgeous Rio was rehomed recently, unfortunately things did not work out and he is now on the lookout for a home once again. Rio was fantastic with everyone in the family, however unfortunately Rio loved his family a little too much and began guarding the family and was so protective of them that he would snap at anyone that came too near. Rio is gorgeous but we really need to find him the right home. Maybe a home where it’s quiet and not too many visiting. If you think you can offer him a loving home please get in touch with us.

    Danny

    Danny is a very sweet puppy that was found dumped at someones gate along with his sister Denny (who was recently rehired). Danny is only about 10 months old and is such a sweet, gentle little man.  He needs a home where someone will give him plenty of attention and love.  He’s still a puppy after all and may need a little training as such.  We took him along with his sister to our sponsored walk and they both loved all the action and were loving all the attention, rolling over for hugs.  They had a great day out with all the other dogs and so many people and weren’t one bit phased by it all.   We’d love to hear from anyone that could give Danny the loving home he deserves – just like his lucky sister.  He’s a great little boy and would love to meet you.

    Brennan

    Marilyn

That would be the best birthday present she could ever hope to receive!

    Stanley

     

    Stanley is a bit of a stunner.  He’s a German Shepherd cross that was found straying and was brought to the safety of ASH.  He’s only about 2-3 years old.  He’s such a sweet fella who loves his hugs and cuddles and getting out for his walk.   Stanley may have some issues with other dogs so a home where he’s the only dog is a must.   He is such a gorgeous fella though and we know for sure that given some time and a wee bit of training he will be a fantastic companion for that right person out there!  Why not come meet him, take him for a walk and get to know him for yourself?

    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.

    Rocky

    Rocky is a beautiful German Shepherd cross that came to ASH (along with Ella).   Rocky is 18 months old and he is a gorgeous boy but like all big dogs to be fair he will need a bit of training in the right hands.  Rocky is best suited to a home with another female dog or a home where he is the only dog but one things for sure – Rocky is so deserving of a loving home and a chance to prove himself.  Please come and visit Rocky and meet him for yourself.  We’d love to introduce you and we reckon he’d be chuffed too!

    Tiffany

    ** BOOKED** Tiffany is a lovely lurcher girl who has been here far too long.  She’s a stunning, lovely girl who somehow has been missed when it comes to rehoming.  She deserves a chance to shine.  Every day Tiffany wakes up hoping that someone special will come and ask for her especially and that today might be her “big day” – the day rescue dogs dream of.  Tiffany is a great girl that just needs a break … if you are in a position to offer her a loving home and would like to visit our lovely girl please think about it and then make that call to come visit her! She’d be beside herself for being chosen!

     

    Fudge

     

    Fudge is a stunning Llewellin setter cross.  He’s such a great boy.  We took him along to our sponsored walk at the end of May and he hit it off straight away with his walkers and their 2 dogs who came along on the walk with Fudge.  No issues at all there.  Fudge walks so well with a harness rather than on the lead directly as do so many dogs out there.  He’s a doddle to walk then.  He was so well behaved and mixed so well with people and dogs alike.  He loved his day out and getting all the attention he adores.  He spotted our camera from a mile off too – (see middle pic) and was so happy to get hugs when he reached the camera!!  Fudge is a gorgeous boy and is being so patient holding out for his new home.  If you think you’d like to meet Fudge please do get in touch. We’d love to introduce you – we know for sure Fudge will shine!

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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 a big boy and he does need some lead training but we know that with a bit of persistence he’ll be great.  Sebastian needs a home where he is the only pet as he isn’t great with cats or other dogs.   If you think your home fits the bill why not come meet him and get to know him.

    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.

    Fonzi

     

    Fonzi is a very handsome Pointer/Collie cross who has been waiting so very patiently for loving new home!  Fonzi was adopted from Ash 3 years ago however his owners personal circumstances have sadly changed and they made the extremely tough decision to find him a new home.  Fonzi loves playing ball, loves going for a jog and can hike for hours.  He is very good with other dogs in the dog park and he made his very special place on the “ASH bus” to our sponsored walk earlier this month!  He had a fab day out and got on great with his walkers.  Fonzi is also fully house trained and is absolutely dying to be in with a chance to meet someone who can offer this lovely fella a new home.  He definitely deserves that chance.  Please come and visit and ask for him especially.  He’d/we’d be thrilled to introduce you to him.

    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..

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

     

    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.

    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!
