Facts about Ace

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog/Border Collie Mix
  • Color: Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
"Ace" is a 5-6 yo neutered male GSD mix who is both mellow and playful. Ace is friendly with everyone he meets. He loves kids and is patient and gentle with them. (See elsewhere on this site for a video of Ace playing fetch w/ his foster caretaker’s grandsons.) He is mellow in the face of lots of commotion, so would do well in a multi-child household. Ace is affectionate (he loves belly rubs), but is not overly needy. He is content lying beside you if you’re working at a desk.

Ace is fine with other dogs and currently lives in harmony w/ two young male GSDs. He seems to prefer the company of people, though. We’re not sure how Ace is with cats, so our preference is to find a home w/out cats for him.

Ace is housetrained and very well behaved inside. He does not steal food, even if it’s at eye-level. He greets his people politely without jumping up on them or barking.

Ace loves to chase after balls, but prefers to play keep-away rather than bring them back for another toss. He loves squeaky toys and rolling in the grass. Ace also likes water, and will bite the water stream from a garden hose if directed at him. In spite of his age, Ace often acts like a puppy in his playfulness.

GSRSV rescued Ace from the Stanislaus County Shelter on 10-19-16, where he had been brought as a stray on 10-3-16. He was immediately brought to his present foster home in Elk Grove. Ace’s adoption fee is $160.

About German Shepherd Rescue of Sacramento Valley

About Our Rescue Group...

German Shepherd Rescue of Sacramento Valley (GSRSV) is an organization dedicated to finding good homes for German Shepherd Dogs (GSDs) at risk of being placed in shelters, or who are already in shelters and possibly facing euthanasia. GSRSV is an independent rescue organization operated by one individual: Brian Foran. Though countless volunteers and benefactors have supported--and continue to support--GSRSV, I run and primarily fund the program, as I have since February 2001. 

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

GSRSV became a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, charitable organization in March 2013. All donations to GSRSV are tax-deductible as allowed by law. Since February 2001, Brian Foran has funded GSRSV primarily on his own. Donations have played--and continue to play--a huge part in keeping GSRSV afloat, as adoption fees are a drop-in-the-bucket compared with the costs of running a large rescue program.
To make a monetary donation, please go to the donation page on GSRSV's Website: www.gsrsv.org/DonationsNeeded.htm. Thanks for your support!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Because I am an independent rescuer caring for many dogs, I am presently unable to conduct regular adoption or "meet & greet" events.

I only arrange for people to meet the dogs that I have available for adoption after I have discussed the dog and have received an adoption questionnaire from them.

Our Adoption Process...

1. View my dogs available for adoption, either on this Website or on our own Website (www.gsrsv.org). I also list German Shepherds and German Shepherd mixes for other rescue groups and inviduals on my Website.

2. Contact Brian Foran at 916-655-3125 or bab43@msn.com to discuss the particular dog(s) that you're interested in.

3. Complete my adoption questionnaire. It is a downloadable Microsoft Word file on the page of my Website titled "How to Adopt a Dog through GSRSV." If possible, return the questionnaire via e-mail.

4. Go see the dog you're interested in--at my rescue facility, at the home of the dog's foster caretaker, or at the home of the dog's owner.

5. If you decide to adopt a dog, I will have you sign my adoption contract and pay the appropriate adoption fee, which varies between $300 to $100, depending on the age of the dog and whether it is a purebred GSD or not. This fee includes spaying or neutering, rabies and distemper/parvo vaccinations, heartworm check, and a 6-month supply of heartworm preventative. The adoption contract is on the same page of my Website as is the adoption questionnaire.
