Ava is a beautiful 2.5-year-old girl who came to FBV from a shelter. We don’t know a lot about Ava's history. What we do know is that she was surrendered to the shelter due to dog aggression. From our understanding, she was living with multiple dogs and there was an unwitnessed dog fight that sent her to the shelter.
Ava was treated for a urinary tract infection (UTI) when she first came into rescue and will need to be monitored throughout her life for the recurrence of UTIs. She has no other known health issues. She is spayed and up to date on her vaccines.
She is only partially housebroken. She will go outside to potty, but if you don’t notice her by the door, she will eventually potty inside. She is crate trained but would prefer not to be crated. Ava is also leash trained. A fenced yard is preferred but not required. She also does not require a stay-at-home parent or a midday potty break.
Ava would love a forever family who will let her sleep in the bed and snuggle on the couch. She would also love a family who will play with her and take her on walks. She is such a sweet, loving girl and just wants to be close to her human. She also wouldn’t mind a home with a submissive furry playmate.
Ava is a silly girl who will low crawl to her person and loves to play on her back. When she looks at you with her cute face and her buck teeth peeking through, it will melt your heart! If you think you may be the perfect match for this lovely lady, please apply.
