While this Ace is a little too big to fit up your sleeve, he will quickly steal your heart! Approximately two years old and a medium-sized Labrador Retriever mix, Ace made his way to the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on April 26th as a stray. Ace was confused while he was at the shelter and kept hoping he would be chosen by a forever family, but unfortunately as a black dog with heartworms at a small rural shelter his chances were looking bleak.

On May 4th, Karen Steers from Peak Lab Rescue in North Carolina, asked for our assistance with Ace’s heartworm treatment so that he could be pulled from the shelter. Of course we agreed, and Ace was transported to live with a foster family while he waited for his heartworm treatment. On June 20th, Ace had his heartworm treatment, and was one step closer to finding that forever family he has been waiting for.

Ace has the makings for a great family dog: house trained, expert couch cuddler, solid leash manners, food motivated, enjoys meeting new dogs and people! In his foster home Ace has the run of the house and has not needed to be crated while his family is out. Ace’s foster family shared that he is wonderful with their young kids and makes sure to share his love with everybody by moving from bed to bed for snuggles! Click here to view more photos of Ace.

RADAR paid all of Ace’s heartworm treatment costs, which totaled $173.
