Origin: UK / Age: 10

This lovely girl is Ash. She is roughly 10 years old and is looking for a new home because her elderly owner is unable to give her the time, companionship and exercise she needs. He is also at risk of falling, and her being a bit boisterous at times is a worry for him.
She is in Northern Ireland, near Craigavon.
Ash is a very friendly, affectionate dog with a lovely personality. She gets along with sensible older dogs though she will have a growl at rowdy younger dogs. She has been a working dog all her life but in recent years, has not been worked. She got on well with other dogs in the field and is great with other dogs in the family. Although she is around 10 years old, she still has plenty of energy to go for lots of walks and can still behave like a bit of a pup!
Ash has mostly lived outdoors in a kennel or garage. In recent years, her owner has had her indoors more often but due to the risks of injury, she is still outdoors for lots of her time. She is not getting enough attention, so is often whining when outdoors. If she comes indoors, she doesn’t have accidents but she might need some help to become fully housetrained. When she has been left alone indoors, she has been destructive (ripping bedding and the bin apart) but she might learn to settle more once she is having more exercise again.
She cannot live with a cat (she will chase to catch) and has not been tested around livestock. She loves children and has often been around her owner’s grandchildren, but she is very boisterous so could knock over smaller people, especially since being indoors is a novelty to her.
She used to have very good recall to the whistle. This has slipped a little in recent years, as her time on walks has reduced, but she still has pretty good recall. She possibly recalls better to a male voice, if a whistle isn’t used. She walks on a slip lead and enjoys travelling in the car.
Although family members have helped to take her on some walks, Ash has gained some weight as her exercise levels have dropped. If you think you could give this lovely older girl a loving home where she will again get lots of exercise and attention please email us on
Given her age our preference is for to be rehomed in NI or close by. She will be rehomed under our adoption contract and free five weeks Agria insurance. Terms and conditions apply.
