Pertinent Information - Adopted 3/07
Ace & Kelli
3/07 - Ace has been adopted
3/16/07 - Ace has been here for a month now and he’s a happy boy! He is doing great with his training so far. He does better than Kelli his fur sis sometimes. He is a total snuggler although when he sits with us watching TV we hear his constant snoring so loud and can’t help but crack up. There’s no stopping his snore! He loves his toys and Ace and Kelli play keep away with each other. They can be very entertaining. Sometimes they get too wound up but stop as soon as I say to. He is still having diarrhea issues. This has been ongoing for a month now. We’ve been to the vet 2x and tried several things to no avail. I’m waiting on a call from them to see what we’ll do next to help him. Otherwise he is healthy. Very active and playful. I love this sweetie! He really has a great personality. I’ve sent some new pics of him, some of them with Kelli too. He gets lots of love and he’s enjoying every minute of it!
This boy was turned in at a kill shelter by the previous owner. He is such an amazing dog and I am so grateful to BAR for bringing him to us. I could not imagine him being put down with so much love to give and a whole life ahead of him. Thanks again Bar for helping to save this love bug!
3/7/07 - Ace is pending adoption
Ace has been here over
a week now and is doing great! He loves it here. He is
listening better and learning not to jump on people. He’s
getting sit too. He’s put on some weight and is looking a
lot healthier. We went to the vet this weekend and he was
so good for him. He’s on some meds for his intestines
because of his loose stools so hopefully that will improve.
He has a skin infection also but the vet thinks it may clear
up on its own now that he’s eating better. If not he’ll
treat it on the follow up visit. Other than that he checked
Ace has been here now for
three days and he’s settling in just great. I was told he was
about 1 year old but he seems that he may be a little younger.
He’s still a baby!! He seems to be housebroken although we are
being on the safe side and using the crate for training. The
first day there were some accidents (he is confined to the
kitchen for now) but I think it was from the stress of moving
and his upset stomach. Since then, he lets me know when he
needs to go out. He is doing great with his crate. He goes
right in when I tell him and throw a treat in for him. He
whines a little when you leave the room but settles down
2/17/07 - We decided to name our new Foster-to-Adopt Ace. He is doing GREAT! First I want to say thank you for your great advice, it worked wonderfully. We put him in the crate and introduced Kelli. They were happy to see each other, showed no aggression at all, and just wanted to play. After they settled we walked them together. They did great. Then they played in the yard just fine. Kelli is showing her dominance a bit but I tell her no and she listens. (she puts her paws over him) He seems like a different dog since he got here. He's much more relaxed as the day went on. Ace and Kelli hung around in the kitchen together fine. They check each other out and lay down. They're both calm. He also ate well (his whole bowl of rice and dog food) and the bloody stools have stopped for now. We are keeping the leashes on for now. He's done well with the kids. He gets really excited to see them. He jumped on them to play but when told no he stopped right away. He doesn't seem to know commands but we'll work on that soon. Thank you again for all you help and in bringing this beautiful boy to us!! He's too cute!!
