Name and age of the dog: Asker, 2 years
Nicknames: Lovey, wiggle butt
Adoption history: I saw Asker walking down a busy street one day on my way to work. On my way home, about 6 hours later, she was still in the same area. I stopped and called her to see if she had a collar.
It was very hideous and only came after I pulled out a bag of dog treats. I put a few bites on the floor in front of me and was able to lure her in. I took her home and gave her a much needed bath. She had mange, fleas and was very thin so I took her to the vet. My vet estimated her to be about 8 months and gave her medication for her mange and flea treatment and a full round of shots.
A little girl asked me her name before I made up my mind and I said, “Ask her!” The girl said, “Asker is a lovely name!” It seemed like the perfect fit.
Asker’s favorite game is hide and seek. We play with Asker’s best stuffed animal. We keep them waiting in the bedroom and hide it somewhere in the house. Then she lets them look for it.
Asker and I fell in love and now hardly go without her! I feel like she was sent to me by the universe to keep me sane through this crazy world.
