More Details

About Ava

Ava is an total sweetheart. She loves to play tug-of-war, fetch, go on walks, cuddle, basically every fun thing you want to do with a dog. She loves playing with other dogs and will even try to play with cats until they tell her no. Ava is a bit prone to separation anxiety, but it doesn't seem to be specific to my boyfriend and me, she just doesn't like being alone, period.

  • Sex: Female
  • Age: 1 year old
  • Weight: 35 lbs
  • Breed: Australian Shepherd & Border Collie
  • Tracking Chip: Yes
  • Spayed: Yes
  • House Trained: Yes
    She IS house trained BUT she's really bad at asking to go outside when she needs to go. She often just goes and sits on the doormat when she needs to go; no whining, nothing to actually get our attention. And if you don't notice and she just really has to go, she will slink off to find somewhere to go in the house.
  • Gets along with children: Yes
    She's fine with kids, but she doesn't really understand what they are, she might bark at them as though they're an unfamiliar dog.
  • Gets along with other dogs: Yes
    Ava will sometimes bark at unfamiliar dogs until she gets close enough to smell them. She's not being aggressive at all, she's just trying to find out who they are.
  • Gets along with cats: Yes
    She will 100% try to play with a cat like it's a dog until they claw her face or we tell her to stop. She lives with a cat so she's comfortable with them and we know she won't hurt them.

About Smokey

Smokey sometimes takes a little while to warm up to new people, but if you give her some scratches at the base of her tail and let her sit on your lap, she'll love you forever.
