Hi, my name is Ava IV!

Adult Medium Female
Pit Bull Terrier / Mixed

Hello, my name is Ava. I am a 5 year old, smart and sweet pit mix. I’m calm and happy around other dogs and all people! I am crate trained AND potty-trained like a good girl should be. I used to be a little scared of the elevators but I’m a city girl now, riding up 5 floors in a loud elevator with ease!

I can walk on a leash very well, and don’t make it difficult for you to lead me since I really like to make people happy! Snuggles and cuddling are my favorite! And I especially like butt scratches! I get all wiggly and waggy whenever you give me love! Though I like the humans, I’m pretty indifferent to toys and balls. I do, however, like to be outside and run around!

An ideal home for me could be a house with a yard or an apartment - I’m versatile and go with the flow! I just love being doted on and meeting new people! I am truly the sweetest, softest natured pup…with a great big smile to give you better kisses with!!

Don’t you want to add me to your family? Apply to adopt me, Ava, today!

Ava is available for pre-adoption only at this time, as she is heartworm positive. Heartworm disease is a non-contagious and treatable condition in dogs, but is fatal if left untreated.
