My new Foster Ashford- ADOPTED

I have a new foster pup Ashford. He is 10 months old. My favorite age. All legs and ears. So sweet and coming out of his shell really fast. When he first walked in the house he was so timid he peed all over the floor when he saw the pups but got over that real fast. It helped going swimming with them.
His family really hated giving him up but had no choice as she has some medical issue with two kids and has to have surgeries with no family to help her take care of him and the kids. It broke her heart to give him up but her health and kids come first. Even after her surgery there is no guarantee she will recover.
Ashford has a slight heart murmur but the vet thinks that it will probably go away or not affect his life at all. Between a one or two. Treating him for coccidia. But other than that he is healthy. Dont think he will be with us for too long.

Now for the fun part. Pictures. And maybe you can help me rename him, he is not an Ashford. Doesnt really answer to it either. He loves swimming so I think something to do with swimming or water. Maybe Nemo.

Last picture is Daisy & Bama.

Gosh he is REALLY cute! It's not water related, but my "neighbors" (not really neighbors, but I talk to them regularly on my walking route) recently lose a golden named Ford.

Or is their a body of water nearby you could name him after. The new puppy they (neighbors) got is named after the lake the husband grew up on.

hmmmm....can't wait to see what you decide

Oh my gosh! What a cutie. I love the name Nemo! Great pictures. Do your dogs tear up the liner of the pool? Jay's always said that we can't do an above ground pool because the dogs would tear the liner up.

My dogs dont touch the side of the pool at all. We have taught them to go to the ladder to get out. They caught on really fast. And we have a gate so they cant get in without us there. All the new pups learn to go to the ladder. Ashford learned really fast. I would stand at the ladder and call him after he jumped in and he would come right to the ladder to get out.

So cute! Looks like he's got some sighthound in him. Nemo is cute and I like Phelps.
