Hi everyone!

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

About Paws For Life NC A FCHS Program

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.
