There will never be another ACE.

"One who possessed beauty without vanity, strength without insolence, courage without ferocity, and all the virtues of man, without his vices. This praise would be unmeaning flattery if inscribed over human ashes, is but a just tribute to the memory of my dog."  - Lord Byron

My second Lara son.  What an AWESOME dog Ace was.  I  owned this wonderful dog since he was 8 weeks old in 1996. He has an incredible amount of drive.  He was always a so much fun to train.  He has earned his SchH3 many times and was the 2001 USA Mideast Regional Champion.  He also earned the IP3 title.  I finally retired him at 8-1/2 years.  He was always pronounced in protection, and earned many V-rated (96-100) scores, including a 99 in 2004, shortly before I retired him. Thanks to Mark Scarberry, training Director of OG Buckeye, for all the great training!

        Practice makes perfect!

Ace was a large, powerful male with an SG show rating.  He was black and tan with a lot of black on his body.  His hips x-rayed OFA excellent.

Like all my dogs, he has always lived in the house with me, although I do have a couple of kennels outside so they can spend time there when I'm not home.  Ace was very friendly once he got to know you, but he was extremely protective when around strangers.  He was excellent with children, and very tolerant of their mannerisms.   He showed a lot of aggression in the sport of Schutzhund and if threatened.  But he did not have any handler, food, or dog aggression.  I have taken him many places; hotels, in crowds, woods, name it, he has probably been there.  He was at ease anywhere he we went.

My only regret is that I only bred him once.  He became sterile after that.  But, I am happy that I do own his son, Jax, and I'm carrying on Ace's genes through Jax.
