Ava is an adorable girl weighing in at 25 lbs- the perfect size! We don't know much about her background, but she looks to be a beagle/terrier-ish mix and ~5 years old. Whatever she is, we love her ear freckles and her super sweet disposition!

We think Ava may not have had the best life pre-SAAP. When she arrived, she had pneumonia and a high fever, her fur was urine-stained and she held her eyes closed at sudden movements. But with a little TLC and good veterinary care, she's now feeling great and, despite her background, she's super friendly and befriends strangers in 10 seconds:)

She lives with two dogs (55 and 8lbs) and two cats in her foster home. She ignores the cats and would like to play with the dogs, but she reads their cues well and isn't obnoxious. Hasn't been around kids yet, but she'd likely do fine.

Ava is medium energy and content to chill at your feet or go for a walk. She's gaining confidence on the leash and doesn't pull at all. She's not a fan of the crate (looking at her urine stains, we think she must've spent a lot of time crated in her past life). She barks when initially put in, especially if she can hear activity in this house, but she'll quiet down and sleep through the night. She'd probably be happier sleeping near her people.

She's picking up on house-training very quickly. She hasn't had an accident in the house, but has peed in her crate a few times. She's a smart girl, very eager to please, and learns routines easily. Being called a 'good girl' makes her so happy that she runs zoomies around the yard- so cute!

Will you be Ava's forever home?
