My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:


Asher is an incredibly smart and sweet two-year-old cattle dog. He loves to bury his head in your arms during the day and cuddle all night. He will chill next to you while you work or relax, but he's always ready to play fetch at the drop of a dime. Asher came to the East Valley Shelter as a stray after he was found with a neck wound that appeared to be from a dog fight. His wounds are all healed and he is looking for his FURever home with an experienced cattle dog owner.

Cattle dogs are extremely loyal to their owners but can be wary of strangers. They also tend to display dominance towards other dogs and use herding behaviors towards children. This is why we think Asher would be best as an only animal in a house with no children, and a yard to "do his work."

Asher needs generous exercise and thrives when he has jobs to do. He is a "working dog." after all. He can play intensely at times and is very passionate about his toys. While walking, he is very intrigued with other dogs but does not typically bark at them. He may whine a little and pull, but he doesn’t pull strongly. Asher finds simple joy in being by your side and spending time with you!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

1) View pets online

2) Submit application for the pet of your choice. FYI: The application process is not meant to be an invasion of privacy but a tool to help us find out if one of our pets would fit happily into your home and lifestyle. We spend a lot of time and funds to get to know our dogs and cats and your application helps set both you and them up for a successful adoption. CLICK HERE FOR APPLICATION.

3) Meet the dog or cat: By appointment only. If your application is approved, you will be contacted to arrange to meet the pet at a convenient time. We ask that everyone who will be living with the pet attend the meeting. Also, if you have an existing dog, for a dog we might ask that you bring him/her along for an introduction.

4) Home check: While a home visit is required prior to final placement, it does not guarantee adoption. We like to see where our pets will be living to make sure that they will be in a safe and secure environment. Often we can help with unforeseen health risks and help secure yards and fences that first time owners might miss.

5) Adoption contract: The adoption contract is a binding agreement between the adopter and our rescue group. If, for any reason, the adoption of one of our pets DOES NOT work out, you MUST return the animal to The Rescue Train. We are always here for our animals, no matter what.

6) Tax deductible donation. There is a minimum tax deductible donation of $250 per dog and $125 per cat. Each pet is spayed/neutered, vaccinated*, and microchipped. In most cases, we have already spent hundreds, if not thousands of dollars, on vet bills, boarding and training for each pet. The donation helps us recoup a small fraction of that cost.

*In the case of puppies and kittens, additional rounds of shots might be required.

Many dogs that come to us need training. We are one of the few groups that obedience train the majority of our rescue dogs. Our intensive training program would cost the average pet owner hundreds of dollars. Part of our $250 dog adoption agreement, for dogs who require training, is that their adoptive parents have a mandatory free private training session before the dog can go home.

7) Delivery of your new family member: We come with education and helpful hints to help things go smoothly and take the guess work out of what to expect when bringing your new pet home. Each pet has a team of people behind him/her and we are here to be a support system if you should need us.
