Ava has been adopted!
This stunning beauty comes from an indigenous reserve in Northern Ontario. Ava and her siblings were rescued by an organization that works with Northern communities to reduce the population of dogs by providing spay/neuter and taking unwanted dogs and puppies. Save Me Rescue is proud to assist in finding amazing forever homes for these puppies, that are referred to as “Nordic mixes”. What is a Nordic mix? They are often a combination of Husky, Shepard and Lab, but you never know quite what you are going to get!
Ava is approximately 10-12 weeks old, she weighs 6 kg (13.2lbs) and could weigh up to 70-90lbs fully grown. So don’t let his small size fool you, her big paws indicate she has a lot of growing to do!!
Ava is the leader of the group. She is highly intelligent and a bit of a Macgyver when it comes to escaping. In the short time Ava has been in Foster, she has learned cats are okay but have terrible breath if you get into their personal space, sitting patiently gets dinner and one on one time, the crate time is quiet time/ bedtime and potty time is to be done outside… but being a puppy is still in need of training. Ava sleeps in a crate, covered with a blanket throughout the night providing no light or sound occurs.
Ava has had her first medical exam on March 4/19 in which she received her first booster shots. She was also dewormed at this time. Ava’s colouring and coat indicate shepard/husky mix. As an adult, she will require weekly grooming due to her husky breed (are heavy shedders). Bathing has gone over rather well as well as nail trimming but do require gentle reassurance as this is all new.
Ava is now looking for her very own forever family. An active family/individual that has the time to take him keep him well exercised, once fully vaccinated. A fenced yard for additional exercise is a plus. We highly recommend training for Axel. Training will teach him to look to his owner for direction, assist with his socialization and also teach him the basics that every dog should know.
As with most puppies, we are typically overwhelmed with applications. We do appreciate your patience as we consider each application, and also your understanding if yours is not selected at this time. Please do watch our website and Facebook page, as we do have puppies from time to time and also consider other dogs in care that are in need of a loving home.
Ava was lovingly fostered by Mellie!
