ACE is a loving, playful male tri-color smooth coat who weighs in at a whopping 30 lbs. He uses his slight frame to full advantage, quickly learning to slip through the posts of our gate leading to the back deck. ACE also holds his own playing with our foster Lawrence* (the red prominent in the pictures and video), who is double ACE’s weight. They spend a good part of their day wrestling and chasing each other around. ACE also gets along well with our girl Sissy and largely ignores the cat. *Note – Lawrence will be posted later this week.
ACE loves being petted and enjoys snuggling, though he is quite the wiggle worm when trying to cuddle on the couch. He loves people, and quickly takes to most folks, but does sometimes need slower introductions. Once comfortable with someone he is fine. We keep plenty of bones around as he loves to chew. He will need to be monitored as sometimes he doesn’t know the difference between what he should and shouldn’t chew. He watches with interest and chases the others when we play fetch, and is starting to show interest in the tennis balls.
ACE is house trained (no accidents in the house) and is working on his crate training. He was very leery of the crate when he first got here, but every day gets more and more comfortable. He has slept quietly in his crate from the first night, but now willingly goes in and settles down during the day. Enter the room and he is up and wants out. Leave the room and he settles again rather quickly. ACE is also getting good at sitting prior to getting his food and before exiting his crate.
ACE would love to have a doggy friend that is playful, can match his energy and show him the ropes. Due to ACE’s high energy and herding instinct he would be best in a home without small children. ACE is both praise and food motivated which should make training lots of fun and very rewarding.
