Ava *FAMILY DOG's Info...
|Breed:||Hound (Unknown Type)/Australian Shepherd Mix||Color:||Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)||Age:||Adult|
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Female|
Ava is a fantastic, amazing family dog. We are not sure what her exact breed mix is...she's just an all-American dog. She was rescued from a high-kill shelter in her final hours and has been fostered in a home with lots of other animals and three children. She is very well-rounded and socialized and has great house manners. She is so loving and a big cuddlebug, always wagging her tail. She is a medium-energy girl that enjoys going for rides in the car and walks. She is house-trained and crate-trained.
She does well with most other dogs and has been with lots of other adult dogs and puppies. She does best with other laid-back dogs that don't get right into her face. She does not like cats, so we are looking for a home with no small animals. Ava is also protective of her people in the home and will bark and growl at strangers at the door but she has never attempted to bite anyone. She would make a great alarm system.
Ava is about 50 lbs. and 5 years. She is up-to-date on all vaccinations and spayed. She has been kept on flea/tick/heartworm prevention. If you are interested in this girl, please contact her adoption coordinator at email@example.com.
Rescue Group Info...
We are a rescue referral service, which means that we help other rescues advertise and screen to place dogs and get them to safe areas of the country. Please refer to the rescue information on each posting to speak directly with the caretaker for their listing and contact us for any help in coordinating transport or with questions about adoption and the processes.
Our pets are fostered in New England or need to find homes from the southern states we rescue them from in order to save their lives.
We screen all applicants through an application that can be found on our website, www.petfinder.com/shelters/ME97.html
Our adoption fee varies, but is typically $275-$350 (including transport to New England) depending on their vet charges.
