A firehouse on the Lower East Side has made a media star. Today in the New York Post and a few days ago in DNA Info, there were profiles of Ashley, a pit bull rescued on Staten Island and adopted by the guys at “Fort Pitt” (Engine 15/Ladder 18).

Ashley has an Instagram account (@probyash), where her daily exploits are being chronicled.

The one-year-old dog was saved from a crack house by a non-profit group, No More Pain Rescue, Jan. 9. The organization’s co-founder, Erica Mahnken, told the Post, Ashley was, “filthy,” “extremely malnourished” and about 25 pounds underweight. She had cigarette burns on her head.

Mahnken and her fiance knew the LES firehouse crew was looking for a dog, so a match was made quickly. “The minute we walked her through those doors, we knew that’s where she was meant to be,” Mahnken said. “Every single Fort Pitt firefighter instantly fell in love with her and she fell even more in love with them.”

Uncle FF Jim Murray knows the good spot!
