Ava's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Ava's Story...
Meet Ava! She is a playful, loving, and very loyal Dogo Argentino. She's typical of a Dogo in that she can be calm and gentle and also very excitable at times. Ava loves car rides and meeting new people, and is well mannered when in public. She does great on walks, though will excitedly pull at the beginning, then fall into a calm pace. Ava came to us as a hot mess! She had been in a hoarding situation for over a year without medical care and was suffering from mange, secondary skin infections, and entropion (inverted eyelids). Now that she is past her eye surgery and she is feeling better overall, her puppy side is here! At the age of 2 1/2 years old, Ava is finally truly getting to enjoy life.

Ava is house and crate trained, will sit and make eye contact for food and treats, and would benefit from some training for manners - something her new family can do and use as a bonding experience. Her "special needs" are her sensitive skin and allergies. The foster family along with Ava's dermatologist have figured out what will work for her and it is in Ava's best interest to have her adoptive family continue the care she is currently receiving. It is so rewarding to have helped Ava become the happy and healthy girl she is today. Now to find her the perfect family!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ava, a Houston Dogo Argentino dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dogo Argentino for sale in Houston, or seeking a Dogo Argentino dog from a breeder in Houston.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Houston 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 Houston 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 Dogo Argentino breeders who help with Dogo Argentino rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Houston paves the way for another one to be saved.
