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, as well as 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 beautiful 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.
