A last chance plea for help has been issued on behalf of a senior dog named Ace who is the ONLY dog on the euthanasia list at a Florida animal shelter. On Saturday morning, the Friends of Orlando Shelter Pets Facebook page shared Ace’s story, writing:
LAST CHANCE ANIMAL 🚨
This beautiful frosty-face boy ACE #A280859 is the only dog on this week’s euthanasia schedule at Orange County Animal Services in Orlando. He is available for either adoption or rescue placement. To adopt, Ace has until Tuesday 5:45 pm to secure an application. To rescue, he has until Wednesday morning 6:00 a.m. to receive a hold.
Ace is eight years old and has a sad history. The following information was shared:
This poor boy was confiscated after being left behind by his owner who was evicted from the home. We saw him several times while at the shelter, just staring out his kennel looking handsome, but didn’t get a chance to take him out before today. So we can just give you a snapshot based on our time spent with him this morning. Ace was very easy to leash, but does pull hard when walking him. He was distracted, initially, out in the play yard, watching all the goings-on around him, marking everything (note, he is not yet neutered). He seemed interested in other dogs, but we saw no lunging. However, his shelter notes seem to indicate he must be an only pet.
The networking page adds:
We really hope Ace is given a chance to live out his final years with happiness, in a comfy home. He seems to just be a neglected old man. We are not behaviorists, but feel an adult home with no other pets would be best for him. A family who is dog savvy and understands the life of a dog that was likely neglected and not particularly cared for. He could use a little time to relax and do his own thing and decompress, before getting comfy and acclimated to a new lifestyle. Will you please help and share Ace?
Ace has run out of time – he needs to be rescued or adopted in order for him to know what it means to be loved. Sadly, it appears that he has never known true love.
