Look at his sweet, hopeful eyes and turn away. It’s not easy. Ace doesn’t want to die — he’s only one year old. But he first arrived at the county shelter back in July. So Ace has been at the shelter way too long. He is still happy, and his tail still wags nonstop, but the volunteers are sure that he will not be kept at the shelter much longer. The staff and volunteers love this dog, but he is getting depressed at being alone and without some human interaction at the large shelter.
In his video, you can see him wagging his tail nonstop. The volunteers photographing the dogs heard whimpering and followed the noise. It was Ace, begging for some attention. The part of the shelter in which he is kept (the west wing) is completely empty of people! No one is seeing this sweetheart. There are over 100 dogs there who have overstayed their welcome at the shelter.
Ace was adopted two weeks ago but ended up back at the shelter as a “stray.” The story? No one knows. But his personality is fabulous. He is sweet and affectionate.
There is more information on his Facebook thread. There are more threads on #HashtagA1714903. The thread includes all the posts about him. His current status will be available on his PetHarbor page. Please share Ace’s story. Sharing saves lives because you never know who might be able to help him. Friends, family, social media connections are all necessary to network the urgent dogs. It could very well save Ace’s life.
