Ava is a 4 year old red and black purebred female German Shepherd dog looking for a special family to welcome her as one of their own! Ava is a special needs type of dog, so she needs patience and understanding from her new family members.

Ava is a stunningly beautiful dog, she is also a super athletic girl who LOVES to run around and play fetch or fly through the agility course. Ava is very friendly, LOVES being around people and has a big heart. If she wants you to play with her, she has no reserves about letting you know! A big property that she could run around and have a blast on would be ideal for her. This girl definitely loves to run and is good on a leash, so she'd make an EXCELLENT running partner, as long as you could keep up with her that is!

The main thing with Ava is, as kind and sweet as she may be, her behavior and excitement can border on manic/compulsive at times, it's just the way she is, so if you're looking for a lap-dog, Ava is not for you.  She would also do best as the only dog in the house, she's done OK with some of our dogs, but in general just likes being with her people.

Ava is crate trained, knows commands, and lifetime training with us is included in her adoption. If you think you can give this girl a wonderful life and can provide her the proper environment for her success, please contact us and we'll arrange a meeting!

About Von Dubinhaus Shepherds Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

For the better part of the last 15 years, Von Dubinhaus Shepherds Rescue has been helping dogs get their second chance at a happy life.

Many of our dogs come to us from bad situations or after being deemed not adoption material by various rescues or counties. We don't give up on these animals and work to rehabilitate them in order to make them excellent future additions to families looking for an amazing animal to enrich their lives!

German Shepherds are our passion, we care about where these dogs go, and strive to pick the best possible situation for them to thrive in. We do not adopt our animals out on impulse and hope to find candidates as excited about training these animals as we are!

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

This rescue is paid for out of our own pocket, donations are greatly appreciated and always welcome. You help the dog's out with whatever they need with whatever you donate.

Our Adoption Process...
