She's a high energy, big hearted, 4 year old puppy in need of the right home.
Ava is a Female Labrador/Staffordshire Terrier Mix Dog for adoption to a very loving home in or near Athens, GA. This very special Dog is 4 years years old and weighs Medium/55 lbs pounds. She is healthy, energetic, and loves any chance to run or play or spend time with her people.
Ava is being placed for adoption by owner because work and other obligations are greatly reducing the time that is devoted to Ava. She is a wonderful companion who needs much more “people time” and the regular exercise that she can’t get in her current home. Ava is filled with energy and a love of life, but her owner worries that without the right situation, Ava will become bored and depressed.
The current home situation feels like this is the wrong environment for her, and her family feel very strained as well. No matter how much they love her, it is very hard to find enough time to share with her when she needs it. They end up frustrated with her, and they know it’s not her fault. There is just too much time spent in her crate rather than enjoying life. She just has more energy and drive than most dogs, and they don’t know how to channel it towards the right behaviors. She’s got so much potential.

Her family feels that maybe Ava needs more obedience training, although she sits well and gets in her crate on command. Her main problem is that she just seems to get too excited when she finally gets to have some fun.
More exercise and a home where she can spend a lot of time in her own yard may be a good idea. With intelligent dogs like Ava, boredom can be especially hard to cope with.
She is very polite with people she is familiar with, but she can hardly contain her excitement with new people. She likes to jump and bark, but she has no aggression. She pulls on the leash and is distracted by people and animals. She will eat socks and underwear if she can get to them. She had a sock removed from her intestine surgically about a year ago, and she made a full recovery. Chew toys don't last very long and because she tends to over-do it with chewing on things, it is hard to leave her alone with a nice bone.
Ava will make you laugh in a dozen ways each day as she’s still basically a puppy inside. She loves to fetch and snuggle when she’s tired. She is a joy to have around, but she really needs somebody who can be there for her more often.
A home where the owner is experienced with training a puppy or with high energy dogs will certainly be a great fit for Ava. Help this gem to shine!

There is a $75 adoption/rehoming fee. Supplies and veterinary records will be included.
