Ava's Story...
PLEASE NOTE THAT BREED, AGE, AND SIZE AT MATURITY ARE ONLY GUESSES! If you are seeing this dog on this site he is available so there is no need to email us checking for availability. Instructions for meeting this dog are provided below.


Meet Ava born around 08/11/14 and weighing 9 pounds as of October 10th. Ava is a sweetheart,and everyone who meets her just falls in love with her. She is just a doll, wonderful with other dogs, but likes to chase a cat and pin them down, not to be mean but to play. Most cats don't like that behavior, so a home without kitties might be best for your feline. If you are gone working all day, a puppy isn't the right match for you. A quick 30 minute walk in the afternoon at lunch is not enough exercise for an active dog.


Ava is being fostered in a home in South Naperville around other cats and dogs, and children. Given she is a little shy, Ava has been visiting many families to help her see the world and all that goes with it. It's really worked as she has really come out of her shell. Every family who has had the pleasure of spending time with her just adores her. She is a wonderful puppy and so loves to give hugs and kisses. She would be wonderful in a home with children. Anyone who meets her will fall in love with her. Ava came from southern Illinois. She was dropped off at a kill shelter where she was rescued then put on transport to Angels On Wheels.


If you think Ava would fit perfectly into your family and you would like to meet her, please fill out our Adoption application which can be found on our website at www.angelsonwheels.org. An approved adoption application is required prior to making an appointment for a meet and greet. We do not have a physical building for you to visit thus the reason an application is required prior to making an appointment. Thank you for your understanding and patience!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ava, a Naperville Border Collie puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Border Collie for sale in Naperville, or seeking a Border Collie puppy from a breeder in Naperville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Naperville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Naperville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Border Collie breeders who help with Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Naperville paves the way for another one to be saved.
