Ace (family friendly!)   

In shelter Dog

Chicago, IL, 60618
Pet name:
Ace (family friendly!)
German Shepherd Dog
Ace is a friendly and social 2-year-old mixed breed looking for a loving family. A DNA test revealed Ace is 50% German Shepherd, 45% Labrador Retriever, and 5% Shar-Pei all combined to make one perfect pooch. Ace was adopted from Pals Place in August 2020 at just nine weeks old. Pals Place rescued him from an overburdened animal control facility in eastern Kentucky with his five littermates back in 2020. Ace has been very well loved and cared for his entire life. However, his adopters had a lifestyle change and no longer felt they could offer Ace the time, attention, and exercise a young dog like Ace needs and deserves. Ace is back in the care of Pals Place, waiting to meet his new family. He is a fantastic family companion, friendly, affectionate, and gregarious! He also LOVES other dogs and has always lived with another dog. His ideal home will have at least one other playful and social canine companion for him. Aces interests include long walks, playing fetch, wrestling with his canine buddies, and cuddling on the couch with his humans. Typical of the two breeds that make up most of his DNA, Ace is an energetic and intelligent dog who needs an active household to keep up with him. We discovered that he will climb over a 5 fence if left unattended in a yard, so a privacy fence of 6 or taller or a family that can commit to leash-walking is a requirement for him. Ace is crate trained, housebroken, and knows some basic commands. Hes neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and eager to meet you! 

• Aces adoption fee to the rescue is $375. He is neutered, microchipped, and up-to-date with age-appropriate vaccines. Ace can be visited by appointment once an adoption application is submitted and approved by the rescue.

• Pals Place adoption fees start at $475 for puppies and $375 for dogs aged six months or older. This fee helps to cover medical expenses needed to prepare dogs for adoption (vaccines, microchips, spay/neuter surgeries, etc.), feeding, transportation, and general care for the dogs. Pals Place is 100% reliant on donations to care for our rescued dogs.
