Ashtor is a very sweet, curious older boy! He might appear shy at first, but once you are his friend, he'll nuzzle his head into your lap for pets and look up at you with his big adoring eyes. Ashtor would happily spend all day relaxing near his fosters, but he does just fine when left home alone, snoozing away in his play pen. When his fosters return, he is very excited to see them. "He is waiting and ready for pets about 90% of the time!"

Ashtor currently lives with another dog and does well interacting with dogs in playgroup at APA. When he sees other dogs out on walks, he hardly pays any attention to them. As a mature pup, he enjoys a nice quiet environment and doesn't require a lot of exercise. He does have a little discomfort in his right hip and leg, which means his walks are a little slower these days, but his pain is easily managed with daily meds.

Ashtor will love a home with mellow, patient parents, and could live with older teenagers who know to be calm and gentle with him. He will happily be your one and only, but would also enjoy a dog buddy who has similar energy to him. Come meet this adorable boy today!
