My husband and I just recently got married a few months ago and we really wanted a pet. We went to the Houston Humane Society to check out the dogs and ended up finding Ace, our chocolate lab. He had been in the shelter for 2 months and he looked so depressed and scared. When we went to the visiting area, he warmed up to us and was so calm and sweet. We then decided to adopt him. Being in a new surrounding, he was a little hesitant at first but his attitude changed immediately for the better. He is such an amazing and protective dog who is so calm, yet has a little personality. We love him so much and are so happy we rescued him. Now he has a warm and cozy bed by the fire, just in time for the holidays! Merry Christmas!
