Lovely Ava is a 3 year old Australian Shepherd Pitbull mixed breed dog. Just look at Ava's beautiful eyes: one blue and brown eye - one brown eye!
Ava was picked up as a stray in Grandview, Missouri and is now at Wayside Waifs animal shelter in Kansas City, Missouri. It was a hard life on the streets as a homeless stray and Ava had the cuts and scars on her legs to prove it.
Ava is a shy gentle soul and here's her adoption letter:
Hello there, my name is Ava! I'm so glad you are reading about me, I am ready to find my forever home and I know I am in the right place here at Wayside to do that. I want to tell you all about myself in hopes that you are the right person for me!
I am a 3-year-old Australian Shepherd, Pit bull mix. I am told I have the most beautiful and unique eye coloring; I have one blue and brown eye and my other eye is brown. I am a gentle soul, and I can be a little shy and slow to warm up to you. Once I do you will see how sweet and loving I can be.
I came to Wayside when I was picked up as a stray in Grandview, MO. I am still a little confused and scared because I don't remember how I ended up getting lost and being homeless, but I do remember how lonely I felt! I was tired, not feeling good, and I didn't know whom to trust. I'm so lucky that I ended up at Wayside and got the help I needed so much! When I first got here, I was really sad and scared. I had some small cuts and scars on my back legs and tested positive for heartworms. I am on medicine now and my small cuts are starting to heal too! I don't like to think about those scary times now, because I am ready to put them behind me.
I am looking forward to a home with a patient family, warm bed and lots of belly rubs. I'll just need a little time to get used to my surroundings once I go home with my new family. I know they'll be patient while I get settled in and warm up. I'll need a home without kids under 5 years old. I hope someday I'll be fine around small children, but for now, I think this is best. Since I am still unsure of strangers, small children might startle me. I am working on trust so I hope in the future I can be around all kids. Please bring all dogs and human family members out to meet me; just to be sure everyone gets along before we go home together.
I promise I will be the best snuggling buddy ever! Once I warm up in the home, I would love to continue training just nice and slow because I am one laid back girl. I tend to pull a little on my leash just because am I so excited to walk around with my human friends. I might need a refresher course on house training, but I know we can work on it together.
Do you think we might be meant for each other? If you think so, please don't wait another day to come out to Wayside to meet me!!! I have your hug waiting for you!
