Facts about Ava

  • Breed: American Pit Bull Terrier/American Staffordshire Terrier Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
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!

About Furry Friends Foster and Rescue Inc

About Our Rescue Group...

We are an animal rescue working to save animals from bad situations, care for any medical or behavioral needs, and place them in wonderful forever homes. Dogs in our rescue mainly come from municipal pounds within CT. We also take owner surrenders and occasionally will take dogs from outside of CT, if we have room in the rescue and the dog's or cat's situation is urgent.

We are approved as a 501c3 public charity by the Internal Revenue Service, are a tax exempt public charity with the State of CT, and hold an active CT animal import license.

Our Adoption Process...

Anyone wanting to adopt one of our animals must first fill out an application. We check personal, vet, and landlord references (if applicable). If the application is approved we will schedule a home visit by one of our volunteers. Once you are fully approved to adopt, we will schedule a meet and greet with the dog in our rescue, and all family members and other pets. If everyone agrees, you will be able to adopt.
