Ava is one heck of a gal and once you get to know her you are going to understand that she is loyal, friendly, sweet, tolerant and easygoing. She might be a little shy at first, but once she takes you to her heart, she is going to love you forever...it won't take long.
Ava is house trained and trustworthy left in the home without a crate or blocked rooms! She walks well on her leash and is a fairly low energy dog so won't require a lot of exercise.
She does great with other dogs and livens up when some are around, so a home of her own could either have her as the only dog or with doggie siblings. She hasn't been observed with cats or children, but remember, she's tolerant!
If you look into her eyes you might hear her heart saying "I'll be your best friend. You can count on me." Aw, who could resist that?
Ava has a slight hitch in her walk but this doesn't stop her from running, climbing stairs, or enjoying her daily exercise. And she even does a little dance for you when you first arrive home or have treats she knows you are going to share with her. So her little bit different walk doesn't hold her back.
Come meet this little sweetheart and we bet you will take her home to be your new best friend!
