Ace is a handsome, trim, healthy 40 pound male Australian Kelpie / Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler) mix with lots of athletic potential. He is a quiet and gentle guy, who loves romping, playing, and exploring at the park and beach with his big-dog foster pack. Herding is in Ace's blood, which is only natural since his parents were probably Kelpie/Cattle Dog.
Grateful Dogs Rescue is looking for a San Francisco Bay area active person or couple to adopt Ace. Hewould love the opportunity to participate in herding, noseworks, agility, or some other dog sport. Now that he about 2 years old, Ace is ready for some quality one-on-one time with a human pack of one or more. He is still very shy with people he doesn't know, so Ace's adopters (adults only, please) will have to be patient while he gets to know them. It would be best to have a well-adjusted dog already in the household to be Ace's mentor and show him the ropes. Grateful Dogs Rescue does not know how he would do with cats. Ace is currently being fostered by a Grateful Dogs Rescue volunteer. If you would like to adopt Ace, please fill out an adoption application at http://gratefuldogsrescue.org/adoption-application.
