Hi there, my name is Ace

I am a big friendly goofball ready to find a new home. I am currently looking for a home where I can be inside and experience what its like being a part of the family. I am very affectionate and super friendly although I sometimes forget how big and strong I am.

I am looking for a strong handler who can provide me with a lot of enrichment like ongoing obedience training and socialisation as I am very active. I could also benefit from learning some socialisation skills when meeting new people and other dogs. I love making new friends but I can be a bit rude in my approach which I don't mean to be, I'm just a very excited fella. Im not great with cats, so a home without them would be best.

If I sound like I could be the perfect match for you, please come down to the Adoption Hub to meet me, you might even be lucky and get a massive bear hug from me.

Compatibility

  • Suits teenager
  • Allowed outdoors
  • Good with other dogs

ADOPTING AN ANIMAL

Things to consider before adopting an animal

Adopting an animal is a rewarding experience that will last a lifetime.  But before you adopt a pet please take some time to consider the commitment you are about to make. Sometimes the excitement of pet ownership can overshadow factors that should be considered before adoption. 

Adopting a shelter pet is a lifelong decision that will have a major impact to your normal, everyday life.  Please remember that a cat or dog can live for up to 20 years and they will rely only on you for their wellbeing for their entire life. 

Before you decide, have you considered the following?

  • Do I have time to exercise the dog every day?
  • Do I have time for puppy pre-school and time to socialise a puppy?
  • Do I have at least an hour every day to spend with my cat?
  • Do I have time for obedience training?
  • If renting, does the landlord permit pets?
  • Is the backyard big enough and is the fencing secure?
  • Does the whole family want a pet?
  • Will the pet be allowed inside?
  • Will I have to move interstate or overseas in the foreseeable future?
  • Will I have to move to another rental property where the landlord may not allow pets.

Can I afford a pet? 

Pets are a lifelong monetary commitment, you will need to factor in:

  • Weekly animal food bills and necessities
  • Yearly council registration
  • Monthly medications like heart worm/intestinal worm and flea treatments
  • Annual vet visits for vaccinations and check ups
  • Unexpected vet bills due to accidents or medical conditions
  • Ongoing grooming
  • Boarding fees for human holidays
  • Enrichment like training, toys etc
