Ace is a gorgeous 8 year old purebred black lab who arrived in NYC on October 22. Ace was bought as a puppy for one purpose: to use him for breeding. He was bred over and over until he turned 8 years old and was then brought to a high kill shelter in Alabama. Why was he brought to the shelter? Well, once he reached an age where he could no longer be bred his owner considered him to be of no more use. Well, we happen to think Ace is perfect and has plenty of uses: he is a great cuddle buddy, an A+ kiss giver, and an excellent foot warmer to name a few! This sweet, loving dog was essentially thrown away by his former owner because he could no longer bring in the cash. Ace is looking for a true forever family that sees him as more than just a money maker; a family that sees him for what he really is--a gentle giant with all the love in the world to give. Ace's foster parents are already head over heels for him after just 48 hours. And, shhhhh, don't tell anyone but they broke their #1 fostering rule and let him sleep in their bed because he's so perfect! There are also two resident dogs in his foster home and Ace gets along great with both of them; the dogs are both quite a bit smaller than him but he's very gentle when he plays with them. Though he might be 8 years of age, he's still got a youthfulness to him which you'll see come out, especially when you show him a rope toy! Oh, and he's already housetrained. Need we say more? Ace is as perfect as dogs come--calm, sweet, loving, and absolutely handsome! If you're looking to add a new family member to your home then look no further than Ace!
Ace is up to date on all of his medical, fixed, and full grown at 70 pounds.
