- About Us
Ace is an active guy and he sure loves to play. He especially likes squeaky toys and balls and he will catch those balls in his mouth! It’s obvious that Ace will be a willing, enthusiastic learner. He already knows some basic obedience, so continue to work with him and use those toys and treats to reward his efforts. With his high energy, Ace will need regular work-outs every day with his person. Walking, running or hiking may be perfect outlets for him! This go-getter will appreciate an owner who is as active and fun-loving as he is. We recommend older, sturdy, playful children.
Ace has been in our shelter for a couple of weeks so he ended up going to a foster home where he had a chance to decompress. Here’s what his foster parent had to say about him:
“Ace is doing SO great and has settled in really well. He gets along with the resident female, even though she is a more dominant female and growled; Ace didn’t mind at all and was totally mellow and wagging his tail. He did the same with a dominant male in the house. We went to Ann Morrison park where he met lots of other dogs, big and small, and he was a total gentleman with all of them. Ace went for a swim in the river and ran next to me on my run on a leash and harness super well.
We’ve been working on crate training and he’s doing awesome with that too. I put him in the kennel overnight and he whines a little but then just goes to bed. I leave him in my room while I’m in class and he hasn’t made any messes or gotten into anything. He barks a little for the first bit I’m gone and then just plays with his toys or sleeps.
Even though he is high energy, he’s calmed down A LOT in the house and is happy to sit at my feet while I study or do house chores. He’s also good at self-entertaining by looking out the window or throwing his ball around for himself. Overall, I think he just needs a few days in a home with a loving human or family and he’ll settle in nicely.”
