Ashley, a handsome pit bull, was found in terrible condition in an abandoned house and a fire station in New York agreed to take the dog in until his rescuers could find him a family.
But they just fell in love with her and after 3 days they decided to adopt Ashley.
“’It was freezing. There was nothing in the house, so we ran to get her and told her we were going to find out what we were going to do after we got her out of there,” Erica Mahnken, one of the rescuers told CBC. News.
“Everyone is so quick to judge a dog, especially a dog that you don’t know where it’s from or what kind of person it is and what gender… It’s very satisfying.”
The New York City Fire Station, known as Fort Pitt, loved Ashley from the first moment they saw her.
Before long, the beautiful dog was part of the team, and they were given her own seat in the fire truck.
Ashley is present on social networks, she even has an Instagram account where you can follow all her firefighting adventures.
Ashley was rescued by No More Pain, a New Jersey organization dedicated to rescuing and relocating people living in dire circumstances. The company, a non-profit team of 4, has limited resources and relies heavily on donations.
“The moment we got her through those doors, we knew this was where she needed to be,” Mahnken said.
“Every Fort Pitt firefighter instantly fell in love with her and she fell in love with them even more.”
She was supposed to stay a few days, but the brigade decided to adopt her and gave her a place in the truck!
