Hello - I'm Ava... "Avalicious" - you know, like one of those rap guy's girlfriends!? You probably already know all about me since I was featured on the GABR youcaring fundraiser site - but I'll tell you my story again. I am 7 months old. I came into rescue because my family could not afford my medial bills anymore. They had already spent a ton of money trying to get me healthy. I had a resistant strain of bordetella (kennel cough) and needed a trachea lavage/wash to culture the bacteria in order to find the right antibiotic. My foster mom also worked on getting my immune system back in check. Now, I am doing great. I gained over 15 pounds and I feel amazing. Amazing and adorable - they kinda go hand in hand with a name like Ava! My foster mom is constantly saying "leave it" or "no". She must think those are my names.
As you can tell, I am a puppy, an adorable one at that. I need to know what is going on around me, and sometimes I forget my manners. I love to go on walks with my foster mom. You know those things that fly around in the sky, I think they are called birds, I love them. I want to play with them so badly that I chase them. My foster mom says I am doing much better but still need to learn how to walk on the leash a little nicer. Now that the weather is finally starting to warm up, that means W A L K time! I am potty trained and I tell my foster family when I have to go out. I am also a big girl now and don't have to be crated anymore at night. I have my own bed and sleep in the same room with my foster parents on the floor. I don't know why they won't share their big comfy bed with me; maybe one day I can sneak up there. I love shoes, socks, and underwear. My foster mom says I am great at picking them up for you. I don't mind being crated when they don't take me along for rides. I bark a bit, but then I am fine and wait until they return. My foster dad says I am a great snuggle bug. At night he invites me to sit by him.
I do need a little work on not jumping on people. I can't help it, I love all people and dogs. I get to see my furry friends twice a week - we have puppy play dates! I absolutely go nuts. I'm scheduled to be spayed on May 8th - you know that "thing" they do, so you don't end up making all those puppies? Once I am feeling better after my surgery, I will be ready to go - are you my forever home? ......... Gotta go! I see shoes.
If you are interested in adopting me...
