Meet Ash

*Special Needs* ****Ash requires another dog in the home, and someone with experience who has had a blind dog in the home**** we will not be adopting out of state***

Ash is definitely the “old soul” of the pack. He is a 9 weeks old Husky mix who weighs17 lbs. He is wise, playful, calm and so, so sweet. Ash is also the quintessential big brother always up for a good wrestling match or providing respite to his siblings from all the puppy shenanigans when necessary.
He is also the perfect cuddle bug.?

"But just when you think you have learned the way to live, life changes"-Hugh Prather

Resilience, gratitude, and patience have also come to define Ash. Last Friday Ash was diagnosed with Primary Congenital Glaucoma and within a weeks time he has become blind. No one could have predicted that this would become part of what defines Ash but he has already broken all the stereotypes and quelled all of our worries. He is already begun mapping his living space and learned where his bed is in relation to his wee wee pad, water bowl and how to get up and down from the couch without any help. He is also using his sense of smell and his hearing to ensure he gets his needs met and he has learned to use his beautiful voice (howl) to get our attention when he wants to cuddle or needs extra help. He is surely grateful for these sharp senses. It has certainly been a rough week for Ash but he has taught everyone in his orbit to do better and to be better through his courage and perseverance. What an honor it has been to be his foster family. Sometimes life’s most valuable lessons come from the most unusual of places. Open you heart and your home to this extraordinary puppy who will certainly leave his paw print on your heart for a lifetime. Email haar13@aol.com to inquire
