Concerns: BITE HISTORY!!


Ash has a bit of a sad history. He was adopted 5 years ago by his current owners and unfortunately, all of his history had not been disclosed to them at the time. It turns out that Ash spent the first 4 years of his life living outdoors in Northeast Ohio and was severely neglected. He lived through the cold Ohio winters, hot summers, rain, sleet and snow, and sadly this past trauma has not left him without some emotional baggage.

Ash has bitten his current owners and one other person. His triggers seem to be when someone wants to leave, or they try to lead him by the collar into doing something he is not ready to do. His current owners are absolutely heartbroken, and they never thought they would be “those people” who would give up on their dog, but they now have a 1-1/2 year old toddler and now that she is becoming more and more mobile, they are understandably concerned for her safety.

Ash is mostly a sweet and affectionate boy, but he does have that bite history, so anyone considering adopting him needs to be fully aware. He will need an experienced and confident owner and he does prefer men, so a dude adopter is strongly preferred. Ash is good on a leash, good with other dogs, good with cats and he LOVES car rides!! We are hoping someone will give this beautiful boy a chance!

Ash is current on all vaccinations, HW negative and neutered. He is currently living in Strongsville, OH and his adoption fee is $200.00. Applications to adopt may be submitted via this website.


Do I seem like the perfect match?


If so, please submit an adoption application to be considered to adopt me!
