ACE arrived at the rescue on Thursday, 19th December and has settled in well. He is very shy and I believe he has most likely been abused, mistreated or neglected due to him being very shy of people. He does gain confidence when with his room mate TATIANA who has grown to be a great friend for him and helped him come out of his shell.
He is a very gentle boy and although very shy has not shown any signs of aggression, he would rather walk away if he is uneasy. He is going to need a family that understands that he is going to need time to adjust and learn to trust. I am sure in a family environment with a loving, gentle family his confidence will grow and he would make a fantastic addition to a family. I feel he would be great with children as long as they are able to leave him alone and let him come round in his own time - I can see him loving them dearly and in time being their best friend.
WE ARE NOT ABLE TO COMMENT HOW SHE WILL BE AROUND CATS OR LIVESTOCK.
ACE is available for adoption for an adoption fee of US $550.
This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food, general day to day cost of running a brick and mortar rescue and anything else that is needed. Canadian adopters need to know that customs charge 15% taxes when entering into Canada.
