Ashton needs a home

Ashton is a 2-year-old neutered white and brown short-hair Chihuahua.

“Everyone says I am such a cuddle bug! I just want to be by your side and be your best friend! And just look at my new sweater! Isn’t it awesome!

“You can dress me up and take me anywhere. In fact, I really want to be somebody’s lap dog. In return, I will love and snuggle with you. I’ll stick up for you in thick or thin. I’ll be your little buddy!

“Just come out and introduce yourself to me. I’m confident you will fall in love. And did I mention that I am learning tricks? I am a smart pup. I am working on commands like sit. I really want to learn more. Can you teach me?”

He is available for adoption at the Allen County SPCA, 4914 Hanna St.

The shelter is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
