MEET ACE….and he’s a special guy!  This 15 lb, 3.5 yr old, tan, Lhasa Apso mix, came from the Carson Shelter, after another rescue pulled his brother and left him behind.  Poor guy has been through hell, as this was his second abandonment after his thoughtless owners dumped them both in the shelter “because they were moving!!”  This broke our hearts.  I jumped into my car, pulled him out and immediately took him to the groomer and bathed him myself!  Once groomed, we came home and he felt soooo much better!

Ace is a big cuddler and kisser.  He does well with everyone, but he has a ton of energy and likes to jump up on you, so we think he’d be best in a home without young kids or seniors.  We have found he is partial to female dogs and loves to play  but seems to be challenged by male dogs.  He does not like being left alone, so he might be best with a female — perhaps a bit bigger than he is — one who is submissive and won’t challenge him.  OR as your companion where he is rarely left alone.  We know nobody is home 24/7!  He’s fine with dogs, but when you are around he doesn’t like them usurping his glory!  He wants all your love!! 
This boy is a great eater and isn’t fussy.  He is very playful with his two female roomies and with his foster mom.  He is pretty quiet, even when left alone he settles down.  Ace would be a fantastic companion for a runner, hiker, active person who loves to enjoy the outdoors.  He walks extremely well on a leash and does his business shortly after the walk begins!  That being said, if he can’t get out and has to go…he will use a pp pad.  So far, we haven’t seen him lift his leg, but no guarantees at your house!  While he isn’t a lap dog, he would love nothing better to cuddle up to you when the day is done and fall asleep in your arms!  Does ACE sound like your kind of guy?
