Ava's Info...

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

Ava's Story...
Ava is a darling little girl who weighs about eight pounds and is a year old. She is very sweet and smart, but doesn't seem to care for men and does not like other dogs. With the right male energy, she probably would be fine over time with men in the household. She should not go to a home with children under the age of eight.

The ideal home is one with a fenced yard as she is an escape artist, no other dogs, and someone who is home a good bit of the day. You should also not mind a little dog on your lap! She is doing very well with house training. Ava's adoption fee is $300.

MTAR will not ship or transport animals; you must be willing to pick up the pet in person.

• Submitting an application does not guarantee an adoption, and neither does submitting an application before anyone else. Our goal is to find the best possible fit for the dog, regardless of who applied first.

• We are a volunteer organization and it may take time to respond to your request, and although we attempt to answer all inquiries, sometimes this is not possible.

• We reserve the right to refuse adoption to anyone.

• We will not adopt to anyone who gives misleading or inaccurate information on the application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Pearisburg 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 Pearisburg 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 Papillon/Chihuahua breeders who help with Papillon/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Pearisburg paves the way for another one to be saved.
