Say hello to Ashtor (or Ash for short)! This sweet boy is ready to be at your side as your #1 pal in life. He's very curious and likes to keep tabs on what his humans are up to, and when the opportune moment arises, he'll make sure to nuzzle his head right into your lap for some pets. He may appear a bit on the shy side at first, and can be protective, giving a grrr if he feels threatened. But if you go slow with him and show him kindness, you will easily gain his trust.

Ashtor is a very chill, low maintenance dog who is content being lazy around the house while you work - making him the perfect companion for anyone working from home. He should have a 5-star home alone rating. With or without a crate, he's happy to just lay around waiting for his person to come home for up to nine hours. He is a house-trained boy who's been a quick learner when it comes to figuring out the right place to go potty.

He has arthritis in his hips, but he still loves activity. He's so happy to be your buddy for daily walks, despite being a lower energy pup in the house. Once the leash goes on and he gets out the door, he gets so excited to explore the world with you. He's very friendly with small dogs he meets and calmly greets those that come up to him. He can just be a little withdrawn from excited young pups. His walks make him all the more ready for snuggling downtime later!

Sweet Ashtor will love a home with new parents. He will do best in families with kids 12 and older. He is just waiting to find his perfect match. Come meet him to see if that could be you!
