I’m Ashley, a gorgeous Black Mouth Cur / Pitt Bull or maybe even Hound mix, so they say. I’m 4 years old and weigh 55 pounds.
I was dumped in the woods together with my puppies. That area is a pretty bad part of town, known for many roaming and abandoned pets. Luckily, those rescue ladies sighted us and came to feed us every day. It didn’t take us very long to trust them and one day they just scooped us up, right into their car and off we were to a better life. Also known as ‘Freedom Ride’ in rescue terms.
So, here we are, a year later. Life had changed quite a bit for me, in a good way of course, but I must admit at times it was hard to adjust from street life to living inside a home. It took time to understand that I’m being taking care of now, that there is no need to defend myself anymore. The good news is, I got the hang of it now. I’m well behaved inside a home and prefer cuddling up in a soft blanked over hiding in the woods any time.
Cats are certainly not my favorite companions and I still have a hard time welcoming strange dogs. My foster mom said, that I would do best in a home with older children and no other pets, especially cats. I have a high prey drive and although I have lived with many other dogs in my foster home, I would do best as an only dog. Oh and I can be somewhat of an escape artist. No worries though, if you have a secure backyard we will not have any issues.
I came a long way but have learned quite a bit too. Yes, I’m proud to say that I’m crate and house trained, walk well on leash and know basic commands. I’m a laid back type of girl and a true cuddle bug. Yes, I love to be affectionate with my human and give kisses…lots of kisses and those belly rubs I just cannot deny. My second favorite thing to do is play with squeaky and soft toys. I’m quite intrigued with those. So, if you are love starved (I have plenty to give), looking for a loyal companion (I promise I will never leave your side), have no other pets in the house and can give me one or two or maybe even three toys then we are a match made in heaven.
Now the bad news: I had to go back to boarding. I just wasn’t getting along with my foster mom’s cats and the other foster dogs. We are both heartbroken and we tried to make it work. So, this is where I am now, in a kennel all by myself. I’m not sure what to think about this yet. I would rather cuddle up with my human on the couch or lay in the backyard trying to catch one of those squirrels. It can get pretty lonely here, especially at night. The kennel staff says to keep my head high because my family is out there looking for me and will find me soon. Is it you? Will you make my rescue complete by giving me a second chance in life and make me a member of your family? I sure hope so. I’m right here waiting for you…
