Lucky dogs

Our Roy, with his best friend Lucas

Roy, a french bull saved from a killing station was a big user manual in the beginning... but then he got to go to Belgium, and got the chance of a life time, with his foster familiy!
In the beginning it was difficult, but after lots of training and especially perseverance of little Lucas, a special friendship developed between Roy and Lucas. 
They are a step further today, after Lucas was busy with Roy day and night...


Lexie (Ace Delanna) has been with us since Friday. She arrived in Zaventem as a shy dog that was quite impressed of everything that has happened. Everyday she opens up a bit more. Her gigantic basket is sometimes not even big enough. Or she will choose to sit with us in the chair or lays down on the cool floor. Almost everyday she comes with us to visit her horse friends or enjoys a terrace. And soon we will visit Lily and Gill who were also adopted through Ace. Exciting!


Hi people from Ace!


For quite some time I was looking on the internet for a friend for our dog Bo, a sweet dog with lots of energy and a bit bossy towards other dogs. I visited the sites of the shelters in the Netherlands often. But it didn´t work out for different reasons, too big dogs, dogs who could not be home alone or dogs who were not good with children. 


On february 4th of this year, Sammie came to live with us. We have found such a great dog through Ace!


Woof, this is Toosje!

Rufino, ... Kiri

Hereby a mail to let you know how Kiri is doing. 

Athur (ACE Saturno)

After 1.5 year Arthur (our cross podenco maneto) is an incredible thankful doggy, that gives us so much joy and love. 
He is funny, cuddly and a real hunter when he is on his daily walk in the fields and orchard. 
His owners are his everything... Just like his owners, Arthur likes to travel, especially to the mountains.
Arthur gets all attention with the best care he could ever wish for and gives it all back to us... double!
He is a great dog!

Thanks to his foster mom Ellie to have taken him to Belgium and thanks to Ace for everything that you are doing. 

Best regards, Marleen & Kris

Yaco and Belle

These are Yaco and Belle, who have been with us since november and december 2014. They have evolved from scared and shy dogs to happy, playful and lovable sweethearts. They are our babies that we couldn't miss anymore!

Ziggy en Pietje

Sometimes I look at the ACE website. I say sometimes because I can’t face the animal suffering and I have already adopted two ACE dogs.


After living for 2 weeks with us, Jeroom (now Raoul) has adapted well. He has really become an essential part of our family. He is a super good and sweet dog. He obeys very well,he sits to get his paws cleaned after he has been outside. He never makes noise at night and he didn’t destroy anything.

Dolce (Bonnie) and Gabbana (Clyde)

Gabbana (now Clyde) and Dolce (now Bonnie) are doing very well.


We also adopted a dog via ACE-SHIN in January 2013: our English Cocker Spaniel O’Mali. He has really found his golden basket with us and he really loves to cuddle like you wrote in your description.

Dali (Patouf)

This week it is 2 years since Dali (ACE Patouf) came to live with us.












Love from Gines.


Hereby the story of our dog Bert.


Bollie is doing very well, he is healthy, cheerful, he eats well, obeys well. I can take him everywhere with me. He lies down under my chair and when I walk him he is jumping around and wants to play with every dog. In the car he is quiet and he also sat in the bicycle basket. He is a treasure and I am very happy to have him.


I would like to share with you the story of our Sarka, today she has been with us for 5 years!


When talking about success stories you should know the story about Lianka.

Witte parel

First I want to thank you for all the care and the very sweet dog we have received!

Bigy Boy

October 30th, 2015; the day when we finally found our ‘Dog’. We found him on ‘marktplaats’ so this way of advertising really works!


We would like to let you know how sweet Sadie is doing. We are very happy to have her. She is a very stable dog. She looks like a little cat but she won’t let someone steal the cheese from her.

Mallorca (Toke)

Who saved who? Toke (Mallorca) came into our life......I was very sad because my Boxer Nounia had died on June 30th, 2015 at the age of 13 years and 20 days......


Lady Yuma (Beyonce) has been living with us for almost 7 months now.


Hi everyone,

Poseidon a.k.a Tapas

On December 16th, 2015, our family could welcome this sweet dog via your organization.

Angie now Evy

At the site Evy was a cute dog of almost 2 years old, a bitch and she hadn’t lost her ‘trust’ in people. She arrived at the airport and I fell in love with this dog for the second time. Many things were still unknown and that makes it a gamble but also a challenge.



My Bodeguero is fantastic!

"Who are the lucky dogs again?"

Welcome home sweet Sany.

As promised a report about sweet Sany. But first I want to thank some people I really admire.


Our Bizi has become 8 years old on September 11th. She has been living with us since December 2007 together with another ACE dog called Kyra.

Sita, before astrid

Antonio en Isabelleke

Yes, in September the dogs are living with us for 5 years! And I really hope the having to say goodbye will wait for a bit but the medication doesn't give us the result we were hoping for! The goodbye will always come too soon! But we have had 5 wonderful years! They always went everywhere with us, on holiday to Holland! And the day trips to the seaside! Also in Holland: the dog beach. They could run free there! I was hoping we could go to sea one more time but at the moment he is not fit enough. They are really super dogs and I haven't regretted for one moment that we aopted them. I have also been working with dog whisperer Birgitte Ginee, have a look on the site: and then look at the guest book where you will find our story, it has been from some time ago of course.

Ria, a dream dog...

Here are some photo's of Nyssa (Ria). A dream dog beautiful inside and outside. A friend for everyone. In the beginning she was very scared of everyhting and everyone, now she can't cuddle fast enough. She even wants to play with our horse but he doesn't understand her crazy jumps and butt in the air :-)

Happy Gigi

Mother Gigi just arrived at the killing station when we were there, a dirty closed cardboard box. It was put into a corner, not knowing what was inside, we looked and discovered this little mother who looked at us with fearful eyes..................

Fabrice on holiday

Fabrice is doing fine! Still a sweetheart of a dog who loves to sit on your lap, is very quiet in the house but loves to race around in the park. He obeys very well, gets along great with the cat, he gets along great with everyone, he isn't scared like he was before, we can take him everywhere........Really a dream!

Baba van vele jaren geleden

Our Baba many years ago still very happy, thanks to all owners who give dogs a 'REAL'  second chance ....

Lucky tells his story...

Do you remember me? I have lived with you in Spain for 2,5 years. Now I have been living for 9 months with my boss Rob and his wife Paula. I am doing very well and am very happy. Rob and Paula make sure that there is always someone at home during the day. And when that is not possible, I sleep nicely in my basket. Sometimes I lie on the pillow on the sofa. When Rob finds out he is angry with me. I know it is not allowed but it is very nice to lie on.......

Handsome Guusje

I often think of you, you are doing such good work for all dogs and cats in Spain. You will have a hard time with this heat, respect for you and all your helpers.

Cuddle super happy

The collecting (last Monday) of Cuddle went without problems. A bit late, but fine. I was back home at 3 o’clock in the morning. Cuddle has adapted completely to his new home only with the other 2 cats things are a bit rough. Everything in time and this will become fine. Cuddle is a real teddy bear but also naughty. I will have a lot of fun with him and I will keep you informed.

A little news about a lovely darling dog -our Minley, who waited so long for her for ever home, but never lost courage - a brave girl. Well now it has happened - Minley is home, where she belongs, with Charlotte, Maria and Bosnian rescue sister Anabel - and Minley moved right in - a little bit bossy at first towards Anbel, but after a few days she calmed dowm and understood that this great place is for keeps - and Anabel is not a competitor, but a cohabitor, a sister, best friend, playmate. This is not a shelter with soo many other dogs, but a home - our home Minleys and Anabels has to share..
