Here’s Ace! This enthusiastic 9-10 month-old Black Lab mix is all puppy. He found himself homeless at a rural county dog shelter where black dogs have a hard time getting noticed by adopters so sat at the shelter for about a month before coming to Canine Lifeline to enjoy life in a foster home while he searched for a permanent new home. Ace is a very friendly and outgoing dog who has had little training to date. He’s eager to please and, once he blows off some steam, is ready to focus and learn new things. Ace loves playing with other dogs so would enjoy a home with a canine pal or two and a nice big fenced yard to run around in. He has done well with crate-training in his foster home but would prefer to live with humans who have plenty of time to spend with him. After sitting in the shelter for a month, he wouldn’t like being left alone for long workdays. Someone with the time and energy to work with this diamond in the rough is going to be rewarded with an outstanding companion for years to come. Ace weighs about 50 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Ace. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. We have no foster homes with young children so aren’t comfortable placing any of them in a home with children less than 7 years of age. We try to respond to inquiries within 48 hours so if you haven’t heard from us within that time frame, please check your junkmail or spam folder to make sure our reply hasn’t landed in there.
