Well hello there! What's your name? Are you looking for a sort of tall, sort of dark and definitely handsome boy? If so,

I may be the one for you! My name is Ash and I am a dashing and debonair Lab/Husky mix. I don't like to brag ... really

I don't ... but I happen have the softest double-coated hair that is so easy to run your fingers through. You should try it

sometime! At 1 year of age, I'm proud to say my active lifestyle keeps me at a fit 40 lbs and looking good for the ladies.

Despite my recent shelter experience, I am an optimist. I believe in living life to the fullest. I am a fun-loving, playful

guy who likes to be the life of the party. I don't think there is a dog I don't like, but I may come on a little too strong for

some. I know I would NOT do well in a home with no other doggies to play with. Other dogs make me comfortable

and confident. Let's talk about cats, though? What is the big fascination with them? Now, I won't lie ... I've sniffed a

few ... but I was less than impressed. They are tolerable but, truthfully, I think they are snobbish and downright mean!

Who needs that kind of negativity? I prefer to find kinder friends. Now, if cats run, they're giving me a clear signal they

want me to play chase. Who am I to deny them their fun?

Now, I LOVE my family, especially my foster mom. She recognized right away that I was not used to being indoors.

Instead of judging, she's helping me overcome my fear of doors/entryways. I'm also not comfortable walking on

hardwood floors yet, but I'm getting better every day! One of the greatest joys I had so far was sleeping on a big,

comfy couch. Now, that's a dog's life right there! I took my 12-year- old human foster sister for a walk the other day.

Mom said I didn't too badly, but I'm big and strong and I need to stop pulling so much. She said we'll work on it. I did

GREAT learning the "sit" command in just 1 day, though. Mom praised me A LOT and that made me feel really good on

the inside. Now I can sit and get treats right alongside my doggie foster sisters. Those girls are crazy, but I have the

BEST time playing chase and wrestling with them in the yard. I think they're crushing on me too ... but who wouldn't?

I don't like to brag ... really I don't ... but I have not had one accident in the house. Isn't that great? My mom says it is,

so it must be true, because I trust her so much. I don't have accidents in my crate either, even though I don't like

being in it. Sometimes I'll go in my crate on my own if you bribe me with a treat, but usually you'll need to nudge me.

Then I will try my best to make you feel guilty for putting me in there. I eventually settle down but ... not bragging or

anything ... I put on a good show first. My mom and dad get a little upset with me at bedtime with this behavior, but

mom said we'll work on this too!

It is important to give me lots of playmates and/or lots of toys. Otherwise, I get easily bored. Then I have to find my

own fun. I call it fun, but mom calls it mischief. Mom doesn't like it when I do mischief with her shoes or pillows.

Despite that, Mom tells me that I'm a good boy because I'm very sensitive and it's easy to re-direct my behavior. She

says I need a gentle touch because she can tell someone treated me badly. Why? Sometimes I flinch when she's

reaching out to pet me or I crouch on the floor if I think she is upset.

I will be neutered and micro-chipped on 13 June, and I am up-to- date on vaccinations, heartworm and flea/tick

preventative. If you would like more info about me, please contact my foster mom at My

adoption fee is $225. If you would like to adopt me, please go ahead and fill out an application at

About Franklin County Humane Society

About Our Rescue Group...

FCHS is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization comprised entirely of volunteers from Franklin County and throughout the state and country. It was formed in 2002 to help solve the problem of unwanted dogs and cats in this region. Its long-term goal is to build an animal shelter where area pets can find safe refuge until they can be adopted to permanent homes. Its immediate goals are to develop a strong foster program to remove adoptable animals from the Franklin County Animal Control facility and to decrease the number of unwanted dogs and cats in Franklin/North Wake counties through spay/neuter public education programs

Our Adoption Process...

1.After you find A Dog or Cat, review the description of the foster you are interested in to make sure that the information we have fits with your particular needs and desires. In most cases, the information on the website is current and gives the information that we have about the particular foster. The picture of the foster does not tell the whole story.

2.Complete the adoption application. Please make sure that you give us as much information about yourself as you can. List all animals currently living with you including other dogs, cats, birds, reptiles and rodents. The application needs to be complete in order to help us determine if the foster you have chosen is a good match for your home. has the applications. This is step one.

3.Once the application is submitted you will usually receive an email letting you know if the foster would be a good match for you and making arrangements for you to meet the dog at one of our adoption events. Sometimes a foster is best shown at the foster home due to his or her personality. We will let you know where the foster home is and arrange a time that works both for you and the foster home.We do require that everyone who will live with the foster to come and meet them. There is a chance we may tell you that the foster you are interested in is not a good match and may suggest another foster.

4.If, after meeting the foster you decide you would like to adopt him or her, a home visit will be scheduled. Someone from the Franklin County Humane Society will call and do the visit. The foster does not come on the home visit. Home visits are required before any foster leaves our program.

5.If more than one person applies and meets the same foster, all things being equal, we go in the order the applications were received.

6.Once the home visit has been completed, you will be asked to complete an adoption agreement. Please read the agreement carefully to make sure that you understand what you will be agreeing to.

7.An adoption fee of $250 for dogs under 6 months $225 for 6 months and older and $95 for cats, Senior Cats $50. This fee helps us to provide the necessary medical care and other needs for the fosters while in foster care. All FCHS fosters are altered, current on shots, micro chipped, and to our knowledge, in good health before they are adopted out. We are all volunteers and as such receive no monetary compensation for our work with the fosters. The adoption fee is used to help defray costs in the rescue and care of the fosters.

8.Congratulations! You are on your way to having you new furry companion. We hope that you and your new companion share a life of love and happiness. We welcome any comments you may wish to give us about your foster at any time.
