Asiya – Yellow Female X, 4 years 55 lbs

Looking for a companion that loves to cuddle, will listen to your woes, offer comfort after a hectic day?  Me too, and I’ll be that companion for you, giving you all the love and attention I can muster. You see, I’ve had a rough start to life too, tied up outside, corrected for doing dog things more harshly than you can imagine, never given a chance to be part of a family. But I want to be part of yours. Please?

My name means “caring one” or “gentle one” in Arabic. I was found roaming the streets and found myself in “The Shelter“, skinny and afraid. But this shelter reached out to the real Caring Ones, the Defenders of Dogs known as Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno. My foster family had just lost their long-time companion and I’ve taken it upon myself to be their comforter. I love being by my foster dad’s feet, getting love or wooing him with my beautiful voice. My tail wags and he slips me doggy biscuits, this skinny girl is starting to feel love like I never knew.

Asiya is a loving dog who knows some basic commands like sit, down, and off. She is learning to walk on a leash and enjoys the stimulation a walk provides. She is house and crate trained, in fact she prefers a crate with an open door as her safe space. Asiya was probably a backyard dog all her life and never learned the sights, sounds, and normal routines of family life. She does need a family who is willing to invest some time in training and socializing her. She will thrive with some training and is a quick learner

Asiya just wants to please and loves being with people. She needs a family that is able to spend a lot of loving patient time with her and she will absolutely benefit from continued obedience training. She has not reacted to the dog savvy cat in her foster’s home, but has not been previously socialized with other dogs so we feel she may be best as an only dog.

Asiya is available for adoption through the Labrador Retriever Rescue of Fresno. She is a very sweet girl who is happy, loving and just wants to please and be loved. She will need someone who can invest the time and patience into obedience training and socializing her to other dogs.
