More about Ash

** Update 15/03/24 – Ash is now in his new home** 

Ash came into our care after breaking his femur while working sheep. His owner did not want to pay for his surgery, and we agreed to take Ash into our care, get him the surgery he needed and it’s now for him to find his forever home.

Ash has been recovering very well thanks to his awesome foster parents. Ash loves people and is very sweet and snuggly. He is learning to be a little less enthusiastic with his cuddles and has also been learning how to play as well.

He is a typical working breed, full of energy, eager to please and has a fantastic recall. Now that his leg is healing well, he is learning the basics like sit. Ash is toilet trained, crate trained and is an overall gentleman to have in the home. He will need an active home that can provide his busy brain with mental and physical stimulation. Ash is not a walk around the block only type of dog!

Due to Ash’s leg injury, we haven’t had much opportunity to socialise him with other dogs. He is from a farm where he would have lived with other dogs. Ash has also been non reactive to other dogs at his fosters Mum’s work and is happy hanging out near them. We will do further socialisation with him now that his leg is better. Ash could potentially live with a very bold cat (that doesn’t run) with excellent management and slow introductions to the cat.
