ACE
 

Ace was about 9 years old when we rescued him from a Wisconsin shelter.  He lived for more than four years with a wonderful foster family who gave him all the love any dog would ever want.  He crossed the Rainbow Bridge in the arms of his beloved family on Sept. 24, 2008.  His situation inspired our Home and Heart Forever Foster program.
Rest in Peace Sweet Boy

Even though we grieve his loss, remember it like this -

 he finished it and won."
