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, 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 can handle being home alone too, with or without a crate, and has shown to be a quick learner when it comes to figuring out the right place to go potty. He's just as 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 - and it just makes him all the more ready for snuggling downtime later!

Sweet Ashtor is just waiting to find his perfect match. Come meet him to see if that could be you!
Come meet your new best friend
