Ava's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.

Ava's Story...
Ava was adopted from our rescue to a family in November 2014. Unfortunately, their circumstances changed and they were no longer able to give Ava the care she needed (no negative comments please!).

After several discussions with the family, we made the decision that it was in Ava's best interests to bring her back into the rescue.

Right now she is in boarding at our vet, until we can find an appropriate family for her - either a foster family, or - preferably - a forever family.

WE WANT THAT TO HAPPEN QUICKLY! This poor dog has just lost the family she loved for almost two years - so PLEASE STEP UP FOR OUR ADORABLE GIRL!

Ava needs a home with no other dogs. The GOOD news is that she is GREAT with children of all ages and is just fine with cats, as well. She is the ultimate "nanny dog", as you can see in the included video.

Ava is initially scared of men, especially men who stand over her with a leash in their hand. We have to assume she was abused by a man before she was rescued by a wonderful, caring soul when she was just a puppy. That person, in turn, surrendered her to our rescue in July of 2014. With a little time and patience she realizes the man won't hurt her, and then she is just fine with him! Even when scared, Ava shows absolutely ZERO aggression - she just tires to run away.

She is not, however, happy around other dogs - especially female dogs - and will need to be the only dog in the home.

Right now, however, our TOP PRIORITY is to get her out of boarding and into a home! So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE - if you can foster Ava, let us know!

She is a sweet, loving, gentle girl who totally deserves the BEST forever home EVER!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ava, a Groton American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier for sale in Groton, or seeking a American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Groton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Groton 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 Groton 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 American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier breeders who help with American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Groton paves the way for another one to be saved.
