After 231 days, Ace found his forever home!

Ace was surrendered to CHS. His former owners, a military family, could no longer care for Ace. Ace was an extremely active dog and to be temporarily living in a shelter was tough. Ace had to learn how to trust the strangers caring for him and soon opened up and exposed his soft, tender and affectionate personality. Ace connected with staff and a very special volunteer, who helped Ace develop into the happy outgoing young man he is. Ace continues to show insecurity, but hopefully not for long!

Ace was ready to head home right as his new Dad stepped through CHS doors! Ace brought tears of joy to his new family as they played around the room and shared some snuggles. Ace’s Dad inquired about training options and was absolutely thrilled to accept a scholarship to the Canine Behavior Training Program, provided by Traverse Outdoor Landscaping and Irrigation. The training classes will assist Ace and his Dad build a happy healthy relationship and remove any of Ace’s insecurities. Ace will be attending classes shortly and is excited to be top of his class!

Ace has adopted a new best friend. Thank you for giving Ace a loving home and your commitment to helping Ace develop into a permanent family member through the Canine Behavior Scholarship Fund!

The Canine Behavior Training Program Scholarship Fund allows dogs that need that extra attention to develop into a happy, healthy, and permanent family member. Adjustment for rescue dogs can take time and necessary training. With the generosity from Traverse Outdoor Landscaping and Irrigation, this has been made possible.

Mr. Murphy adopted January 19th 2018.

When Murphy was brought to CHS, he was very unsure of his temporary home. New people made Murphy nervous and he liked his personal space. With time and training, Murphy began to trust a select few which allowed Murphy to grow and express himself. Traverse Outdoor Landscaping and Irrigation has supported Murphy in his training efforts through the Canine Behavior Training Scholarship Fund.

After spending 172 days at CHS, Murphy found his forever family and loves every minute of it! Below is a quick update from Murphy’s family!

“Just thought we’d let you know Murphy is adjusting well. He’s such a great dog. We are so in love with him. He loves his walks and would play fetch 24/7 if we had the stamina. He’s housebroken, we don’t use a crate and he brings so much happiness.”

“He’s quiet for the most part. He certainly lets me know when I’m not getting ready quick enough for a walk. On walks, he notices the other dogs but doesn’t bark or get excited.”

“Thanks so much for letting us add him to our family. We sure love him!”

Thank you for giving Murphy the home and love he deserves!
