Hello…my name is Ashton, better known as Ash. My foster mom says I am a very
handsome boy! I am about 5 yrs old and weigh in at a svelte 11 lb. The beginning of my
story is a sad one----I am a puppy mill survivor. The only reason I was kept was to help
produce puppies for profit. I was not loved, taught social skills or ever vetted, but you
are all aware of the horrors of puppy mills, so let’s move on to the happy part of my
story-----in August, I along with 59 other IG’s were saved!! Since then, my foster mom
has been teaching me what it’s like to be a loved, pampered iggy boy. She says I have
come a long way, gaining confidence, not being quite as fearful of humans or even my
own shadow. I absolutely need a home with another confident dog to help in my
progress. I have learned a lot from my foster brother & sister. Unfortunately, I am still not
comfortable being outside, which makes me perfect for someone who does not like to
walk their dogs because I don’t want to go for a walk either! I will go out and potty but
want right back in the house. I come looking for affection now, am learning to play with
toys, get very animated at meal time and even greet mom with a waggy tail when she
comes home. I could go on and on but mom says…she would be happy to talk all about
me if you are interested. Let’s be honest…even though I have learned a lot in my new
life, I still have a way to go.

My “forever” home needs to have Iggy experience, patience and a willingness to help
me continue my journey to the life I was meant to have. Is that you?
