Ace didn’t deserve to be left in a kill shelter. His family had raised him since he was a puppy a decade ago. That’s right, They had him for ten wonderful years, but they are moving out of state and left Ace and their other dog in a kill shelter. Not much of a reward for ten years of devotion. He’s just a great dog.
Ace is an American Staffordshire terrier. He lived with young children and was very tolerant of their antics, he is housebroken, he knows basic commands, and he loves being around people. Although he lived with another dog, Sky (who is also looking for rescue or adoption), he does not like dogs he doesn’t know. For that reason, Ace needs to be the only pet.

Ace has all the makings of a cool older guy! He is always well dressed in his brindled shell, his two different colored eyes add an air of uniqueness, and his smile can still light up a room. He may have hit the double digits, but I think Ace can still keep up with the youngsters! He is very excited to go out on walks, but it is very responsive and manageable. He is always wagging his tail and even bounces around off leash in the yard. He loves treats and isn’t shy about asking for seconds; he’ll catch them in the air or take them nicely from my hand.”
The volunteers can’t say enough nice things about Ace. Another volunteer wrote:
He’s been around the block a few times: he’s previously lived with two young children and was very tolerant of their high jinks; he is reported to be fully housebroken (and the spotless cage he keeps is a testament to that); and he previously lived with a female dog and was very playful and affectionate with her. He solicits attention and relishes a good back scratch — really, he seems to relish everything when he’s out and about and in the company of his person! Ace and his ageless charm are looking for a place to call home — please come meet him at Brooklyn ACC!”
