Boxers Ace and Artie were adopted together after being rescued from horrendous conditions

11 NOVEMBER 2018

Ace and Artie were seized from a property in Co. Kildare in January 2017. An ISPCA Inspector had found them in a poor physical state, living in deplorable conditions.

The two boxers were brought to the ISPCA National Animal Centre in Co. Longford, where they were treated by a vet and cared for until they regained their full health.  

The pair was later adopted together, and went to a loving family! Now, they are settled into their life in Dundrum, Co. Dublin.

“Ace, the older dog, took a bit longer to relax but now is a lovely family pet,” said their new owner Jim. “Artie has always been a bit more energetic, and needed to learn how to settle a bit. Now they are both in great form, and doing incredibly well.”

Ace and Artie love getting out for walks, and are extremely friendly around people. The two dogs depend on one another, and are the best of friends.

“They miss each other terribly if one is away at the vet,” said Jim.

They always have a big, doggy welcome when their owner comes home, and even “talk” to him sometimes.

The ISPCA has a number of gorgeous dogs available for adoption on our rehoming pages. Can you offer one of them a home? Your new best friend could be waiting.
