My name is Ash. Well, that is what my mom calls me, but I like to think of myself as "Big Sexy".
I am a 1-year- old, 46 lb, Lab/Great Pyrenees mix or Weimaraner/Great Pyrenees mix. In either
case, I am a tall, dark, handsome guy with a lot of mojo mixed with a dash of mystery. You
know, sort of like a dog version of James Bond. And, in case you're wondering, I'll take my
drinks either shaken or stirred I have soft hair waiting for you to run your fingers through it
and soft eyes just waiting for you to fall into them. Not bragging, but I'm usually a big hit with the
I am a confident, highly playful boy who loves playing chase and wrestling with other (confident)
dogs and I LOVE going for walks. If I can't have another dog to play with, I need an active family
who will take me for walks, hikes, or go running with me. A big fenced yard would be great too!
Did I mention I LOVE walks? I'm just now learning how fun it is to play fetch.
When playing with other dogs, I like to play hard and rough. It sounds terrible, but I'm really just
playing. Because I like to play hard, it is best if I'm in a home with older kids, like 12 and up. I
also need confident humans who are able to help me understand my place in the pack order.
Cats are a big distraction for me, so a cat-less home is best. My foster home has two cats. If
they don't run from me, I just sniff them and move on. If they run, I can't stop myself from
chasing. Sorry, it is what it is.
I live with my foster mom and dad, and a 12-year old human foster sibling. I prefer to be with
my family and am happiest when I'm near my people ... although I am not a lap dog. I do okay
by myself (crated) for short periods, so you'll be happy to know I am crate trained. When you are
away from the house or cannot supervise me, it is best to crate me (and give me lots of chew
toys) because if I am out and I get bored I will happily create my own fun. And I'll be honest,
what is fun to me will most likely look like mischief to you. I sleep in my crate at night right now,
but I would love to trade that in for a big comfy bed someday. Give me a bed and I'll give you
absolute quiet, I promise.
I know some commands like "kennel up, and sit". I will "come" to you if properly motivated and
I happen to LOVE food and treats, so it's not too hard to get my attention. I'll usually go in my
crate when you say "kennel up", but sometimes I hold out for the proper incentive (treats). I'm
also house trained; however, if I'm standing by the door indicating my need or desire to go
outside and you aren't paying attention ... I will do what I need to do.
I am neutered, micro-chipped, up-to- date on all age appropriate vaccinations, and current on my
heartworm and flea/tick preventative. If you would like to adopt me, I am available through the
Franklin County Humane Society. You can submit your application
