You know that saying about good things coming in small packages? Well, the same can be said for BIG packages!
Here is our sweet ACE! He is a BIG cattledog mix who is a loyal-to-the-bone lovebug. He meets all typical herding breed standards in terms of behavior and traits. (Please do research if you’re unsure what this means. 😉 )
Ace’s owner had some unexpected life changes, but wanted to make sure he was going to be well cared for, so she reached out to Rocket Dog Rescue for help. It was clear to us that this was not an easy decision but one made from deep love ♥️ (thank you for your service, V.)
Ace is approx 4 yrs old and currently weighs 70 lbs… he is on a little diet to regain his former svelteness. He gets along with other dogs but his cattle dog brain compels him to herd (and nip) other animals. He was introduced to a cat recently and seemed curious and non-threatening, but more testing should occur before we can determine how he is around felines. Ace is a very protective guy around his people… another breed trait! He needs slow introductions to strangers, especially if they come into his home. To Ace, it is his “duty” to protect his people and home. He has not lived with children, so a busy household with lots of comings/goings might be too challenging for Ace.
Ace loves his walks and rides well in the car. He currently sleeps in a crate at night.
A volunteer will contact you. (VL)
