Ace: 14-year-old female black Lab 63-lb Spayed

Background: Found as a stray in Hughson, California, her owners were contacted (cause she was microchipped), but they declined the opportunity to reclaim her. Their loss; our win.

What Ace’s foster says: Ace is a very sweet and gentle 14-year-old girl. She was very hesitant initially when we had her, but has gradually started to warm up. Ace is more likely now to follow you around, is curious about what you’re doing, will come up close and ask for affection. Lady Ace is definitely a fan of head and back scratches, as well as belly rubs! Despite her age, she has no trouble getting up on her hind legs and walking, even tackling the stairs. Ace spends a lot of time sleeping, though, and doesn’t seem so inclined to go out for walks. We like to take her to parks and let her stand around and explore as she wants. She gets excited and wags her tail as she approaches other dogs. Lady Ace has had a few accidents inside so we are trying to give her ready access to the outside so she can pee when needed at her own discretion.

What Ace’s Rescue Rep says: The Ace of Hearts! Looking for someone to chill with? Ace is the dog card you want to be dealt! We are hoping to find Lacy Ace a wonderful easy-going home with few steps but a nice sunny patio or deck that she can relax at. She an ideal dog to play poker with, to read to, to play the piano for, or to watch Giants games with. While she is in her twilight years, she deserves a loving and caring family to be part of her world.

Medical: For an older gal, Ace is in pretty good shape. Current on vaccinations, heartworm negative, spayed and microchipped. She is on pain-reliever/anti-inflammatory Galliprant to help her manage her arthritis.

Ace is located in: San Francisco.

Our volunteers donate their personal time & phones so please only call during reasonable hours (8am - 8pm). The Rescue Rep identified in the dog posting is the only person with information about the dog - please only contact the designated volunteer. We do call everyone back within 2-3 days so please be patient. We work very hard to make the right matches for the dogs and for the new owners. We get 3-5 dogs per week; we do not have a facility where the dogs are housed, they are in foster homes throughout the Bay Area.
