Ava in Andover, MA


Here she is with her new family…..

Ava is a sweet, petite, female, ruby Cavalier mix. She came to rescue when her owner developed allergies. She is a delightful one-year-old filled with the love, affection, curiosity and energy of a puppy.

Ava’s foster mom has declared that she is, without a doubt, the best foster she has ever had! Ava is house-trained and crate-trained. Like all pups, a potty schedule to maintains good house-training habits. She sleeps through the night. She has had no accidents while in foster care. She travels well in the car and is easy to take to new places.

Ava enjoys leash-walking several times a day. Her favorite activity is a never-ending game of fetch! She enjoys massages and giving kisses! She has the sweet Cavalier disposition and has been wonderful with everyone she meets. Ava can be timid at first, but if given the opportunity to get to know you, she warms up quickly. She enjoys the company of men, women, children and other dogs of similar size. She has not been tested around cats.

Medically, Ava is in wonderful condition, with no known health issues. She weighs 10 pounds. She tends to have a sensitive stomach, so no people food, please! She is up-to-date on immunizations, heart-worm and flea and tick meds. Ava is spayed and micro-chipped.

The perfect home for Ava would be with either an active retired couple with lots of time and energy to spend with her, or an active person or couple who work from home. Older children (age 10+) who would be sensitive to Ava’s initial shyness and careful of her smaller size are fine. She would do well with or without another similar- sized dog who is by nature calm and relaxed. A fenced yard for her to run and play in would be highly beneficial. She has had mild separation anxiety, so someone home most of the day would be a good fit. Ava loves people and truly wants to please hers. She is a love bug who will follow you everywhere.
