Meet Ash, he was adopted from Salt Lake County Animal Services in 2018 and he is doing wonderful in his new home!
Ash was originally "just a foster" but having him
in our home brought out his great qualities that you can't teach a dog to have.
He is affectionate, great with my nieces and nephews, loves to please us,
excels at learning new tricks, is good with other dogs and is good off leash.
These good qualities were hidden in the shelter by his barrier reactivity and
separation anxiety and every time I left him at best friends society it broke
my heart to see these negative qualities brought out and his sense of security
dwindle. At first I thought that it would be unfair to adopt him while living
in an apartment but the longer we kept the more we realized that we were the
best family for him and that he was happy with us. We became so attached to him
and he became so attached to us that he already was ours and we had to adopt
Nowadays Ash is known as Ashton or when he's playful we call
him Sharky. He loves to go hiking and running and his stamina has come a long
way since his terrible bout of kennel cough. His furthest distant running to
date is 7 miles and he stayed strong. Our favorite trail is Desolation and he
loves jumping from rock to rock at the overlook like a mountain goat. His all
time favorite game is chase and I haven't seen any dog at the park faster than
he is. He has a neighbor girlfriend who is a border collie named Mylah (she
chases the ball and he chases her its a perfect combo!). I am no longer worried
about him being unhappy in an apartment, it is obvious he has the most
activities of any other dog I know. We love him so much and I can't believe how
much joy he brings us! - Lindsey
