Ava is a 14-week old collie cross Yorkshire Terrier who is being fostered in Rhondda, South Wales. She came from a home as her and her sibling didn’t get on. Ava is an active, typical pupster who needs an active home with further training and guidance.
People – Ava loves everyone, she is a typical pup who can’t get enough attention from anyone who’s willing to give it. She does have puppy teeth so sensible older children advised.
Dogs – Ava loves other dogs and is currently in foster in a multi-dog home.
Cats – No cats, will chase
In the home – Ava is house trained in her foster home. Her adopter will need to be understanding if this slips when she moves to her new home as she is still only a puppy. She currently sleeps in a crate quietly overnight with another dog for company. Ava is a good eater and enjoys playing with toys that are suitable for her age. As with all puppies Ava needs to be watched to make sure she doesn’t get herself into mischief and all wires and hazards need to be kept out of reach.
Out and about – Ava will need further help getting her used to new sights and sounds while on walks. She walks on the lead but stops when traffic passes. Ava is just learning about walking so only a few short walks are needed while she grows. Once an adult she will be very active and needs lots of physical and mental stimulation. She doesn’t travel well in the car and will bark for about 15 minutes before settling but this should improve with practice.
Type of home – Ava needs a home where her owners are around a lot of the time to help her settle. She could happily live with other dogs but is young enough to be an only dog in the right home if her owners are prepared for some sleepless nights while she settles. She would be fine with sensible children. As a young puppy Ava needs ongoing training in all areas.
Ava is chipped, vaccinated and up to date with her flea and worming treatment. It is condition of adoption that Ava is neutered when old enough and a discount voucher will be provided. Follow up checks will be done. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet her in her foster home in Rhondda, South Wales
