My name is Ashton! I found myself at the shelter in Texas with a bunch of other dogs that lived in the same house as me. It seemed our family could no longer care for us all. Thankfully someone came and saved us! I'm crate trained and it is my "safe space".
I am fine with my foster brothers and sister and the human kids in my foster moms home. I am much happier now that my mom Demimoore is here with me. I go out with her on a schedule and even have been known to take a stroll outside of my kennel without her.
I am still timid and not sure about people right away. I need time to warm up to new people so a nice calm house with not a lot of hustle and bustle would be fantastic. I do like children but get upset if they are too hyper. Too much of their energy is scary for for me. So older kids would over 8 would be perfect. Please no squeaky toys as they make me go crazy. It may look like I want to play but I really do not like them at all. They make me bark and growl.
I have been treated for heartworm so its important that I stay on heartworm preventives like heartgard. I just need a warm loving home at this time. Is that you?
An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal. Once we receive your application, a placement coordinator will be in contact with you as soon as possible.
