Hello world!

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…


**Ashley is a member of our Continuing Care program which means her adoption fee is waived for an approved applicant. In addition we offer a reimbursement of $250 annually for veterinary expenses, for up to 5 years after the adoption date.

**This dog is with Corridor Rescue in Houston, Texas but is available for transport to most major US and Canadian cities via United Airlines PetSafe for an additional $275. A customs fee may apply at Canadian airports. Ground transportation to Colorado is available for $75.

We are a street dog rescue in Houston, Texas seeking to place rescued dogs in loving homes across the US and Canada. Our region has more homeless animals than homes, so we look outside of our area for adopters.

About Corridor Rescue, Inc. - Portland Transport

About Our Rescue Group...

Corridor Rescue Inc. is an all-breed 501(c)(3) non-profit street dog rescue on a mission of mercy, rescue and awareness -- a mission to save lives and correct an injustice to animals who have been thrown away and left to fend for themselves in an area in Houston dubbed the "Corridor of Cruelty." Here, trash and animals are discarded without thought on a regular basis. We're not talking about a handful of animals, but hundreds of animals fighting to simply survive another day.

Founded by one person, Corridor Rescue has grown its team of volunteers, from all walks of life, united in an effort to help this community of orphaned animals in desperate need of help. We work to rescue hard to capture dogs and cats, to rescue and rehabilitate diseased and injured dogs, to facilitate the rescue of animals mainly from the Corridor of Cruelty but also from other areas of Houston, and to educate about spay/neuter and animal cruelty laws.

Success happens on the streets every day, yet we know that our fight is far from over.
