About Ace:
Big personality in a small package – Ace is a 4 ½ year old spunky Chihuahua mix who plays like the big dogs do. He gets very excited in play and will talk loudly. His favorite game is tug and if allowed, he will play tug until your arm wears out. He also prefers to be the king of his castle, so a home without other pets is recommended. He was housetrained in his previous home and his previous family described him as “happy, playful, & sweet”. He loves being outside and going on long hikes too. Come on over to Dakin’s Springfield Adoption center if you’d like to meet this active and full of life little guy.
