I am Ace. My foster dad says that I am a high-energy “sweetheart.” That’s really nice to hear! He sees me for the nice, vivacious boy that I am, and I appreciate that. When I first met my foster brother GSPs, I came on a little strong and tried to be alpha. But with some guidance from the other dogs and from my foster humans, I soon realized I was part of the gang, and I’ve settled in really nicely. Now, I live in harmony with my foster brothers, and even sleep nicely with everyone on the human bed.

When I was rescued, I was really “skinny” (according to my foster dad). Now, I am a fit 60 lbs, and my foster dad says I really, really like to eat. If one of my brothers leaves even a morsel in their bowls, I make sure I eat what’s left. But I make sure I burn off any extra calories by playing in the yard and running and running and running. When I come back inside, I settle nicely into the family groove.

The two things I like best of all--even better than food—is to ride in the car with my head hanging out the window, and to chase squirrels and rabbits. My foster dad says that I might be a good hunter if trained properly. I have the “instinct.” I also have a tender joint in my ankle from an injury I sustained when I was younger. It normally doesn’t bother me however if I run for a really, really long time (like a day of hunting), I will start to limp on it. The vet said a day of rest, some anti-inflammatories and I would be good as new.

I know some commands, such as “come,” “fetch,” and “sit,” and I love to give kisses to my foster humans. I’m not bothered by loud noises, and I enjoy meeting other humans. My foster dad says that I should be in a controlled environment when meeting other dogs. I’m not sure what that means, but I do get a little bossy and it’s probably best that I find a home with an experienced GSP owner who can help me feel confident and secure around other dogs. I am fitting in well with my foster dogs, so it’s not that I need to be an only dog. I just need guidance.

I don’t really like crates, but heck, I don’t need them because I behave very nicely inside the house! I just chill during the day with my brothers until my foster parents come home from their workday.

My foster dad says that I am doing really well with him and his family, and that I would make the right family very happy!


This beautiful boy named Ace is making his way to rescue today and to a whole new life he has never experienced!! Please say a prayer for safe travels to his new foster parent's.

A HUGE Thank you to Copper Country HS that assisted with Ace's freedom and transport to WI.
