Ava (N. Tazewell, VA)'s Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Ava (N. Tazewell, VA)'s Story...
Ava is our very special 5-6 year old Peke mix. She wasn't very socialized by her former owner, so her foster parents have really worked with her to show her that not all people are bad. She is doing so much better! She enjoys playing with most other dogs and adults.

We are cautioning anyone that has kids, that all the noise that comes with kids may be too much for her. She has does not do well with her foster's grandkids. She has become a little love bug and a snuggler with her foster mom!

She has been spayed, given all her shots, tested negative for heartworm and is being treated for the yeast on her legs.

(***A note from Ava's foster:

Ava does not bite anymore, she will snap if she is tired or startled. I would not suggest children as she will snap. Cats, NO WAY. Dogs bigger than her she will snap at, but has learned to play with bigger dogs..... but if she doesn't want to play she will aggressively let you know. Her yeast infection on the backs of her legs comes and goes. The person that inquires should know you can be petting her and for no reason she will snap at you.

She is very well house trained. She will go to the door if she needs out. A normal routine for her is eat 1/2 cup at 7am, outside by 8am, eat 1/2 cup at 3:30pm out by 4pm, then another trip 9pm. She walks on leash with moderate pulling. As for as commands, sit is about it. She is a little stubborn but that is Pekingese.***)

IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING TO GIVE AVA THE BEST HOME POSSIBLE, PLEASE LET US KNOW!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ava (N. Tazewell, VA), a Portland Pekingese/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Pekingese/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier for sale in Portland, or seeking a Pekingese/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Portland.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Portland 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 Portland 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 Pekingese/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier breeders who help with Pekingese/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Portland paves the way for another one to be saved.
