Ava is lucky girl as she is sponsored by Heidi Johnson.  Thanks Heidi!
Christine Christie kindly sponsored Ava, who offers a big lick and a thank you! 

This pretty girl is about 3  years old.  She is a stunning mostly black (with some tan coloring) tall, thin girl.  She was initially shy but now has come out of her shell.  She is very people friendly, and she is having a blast playing rough and tumble with other dogs.

Ava was initially tested with Professional Test Kitty.  She did well with the kitty, but after Ava settled in more, she became reactive to cats.  We retested her and we are not comfortable saying she's good with cats.

Ava will sleep in a crate when told, but she would rather sleep free at night, perched on the stairwell.  She's quiet inside and out, but likes to bark at her doggie playmates.  She is trustworthy when inside and potty trained.  

Ava is a gentle, sweet dog who has learned to trust people again.  She likes belly rubs and pets.  She'd probably enjoy being a couch potato at night with her people.

Ava came to us via the Martinez shelter; the Operations Supervisor called us specifically asking if we would bring her into our program; see, the Director loved her and wanted the best for her. :)  Ava was a stray; she had an extremely large abscess on her neck.  The shelter performed surgery and she is completely healed.  

She's a level 2 dog in the east bay.
