Ace will light up your home!

If you haven’t had the opportunity to meet Ace you are missing out! He is Carolina Poodle Rescue’s ambassador extraordinaire at events around the Raleigh, NC area. From the PetSmart info table to our monthly MACKenzie adoption events, Ace meets every guest with the biggest smile and affectionate snuggles. We know when he hops out of the car our event can get started!

Ace came to Carolina Poodle Rescue in mid-2016 as an owner surrender. We quickly realized that he would become one of our cataract kids. In mid-2017, Ace moved into a loving foster home in Raleigh. Here he has loved playing with his foster brothers and sisters of all sizes. From 1 lb puppies to 40-pound small standards, Ace takes all the visitors through his foster home in stride and is a laid-back kind of guy. He has even been known to ride around on a transport or two. Helping save lives is important business and Ace takes his job seriously!

In January, Ace had his cataract surgery. His retina was too damaged to correct vision in his left eye, but the surgery on his right has made all the difference in the world. Though tentative at first after surgery, the gift of sight has given this sweet 15-year-old baby a new leash on life! Today, Ace confidently walks around his back yard away from his foster mom and dad, is doing stairs, and has even begun running and playing some. It is a transformation that inspires and delights everyone that has been a part of his journey, none more than his foster family.

How I act when I first meet new people: Friendly – Ace greets new people with a smile and a tail wag.

House trained?  Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn’t keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours.  We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.
