#13217 Ava

Large-size, Female, Adult Labrador Retriever,

My name is Ava and I’m guessed to be a lab mix and estimated to be about 2.5 years old. I’m a sweet girl and I currently weigh about 58 lbs. I have a very sweet disposition and am very loving and affectionate. I love being around my foster family and being a part of everything they do! During the day, I enjoy walks, running around in the backyard, and sleeping at your feet. I would be a great companion for someone who is home a lot.

Here are some things to know about me:
I love to be around my foster family and am happy to go anywhere with them
I love going on walks and do well on my leash, well at least until I see a squirrel
Car rides are fun, especially when I go to the hardware store and get treats
I'm fine to lay on a nice soft rug; I don't need to be on the couch but I try to sneak onto the furniture when my foster family isn't looking
I love chasing my tennis ball, sometimes I'll even bring it back to you
I always go the bathroom in my backyard
Sometimes I like to jump up; its usually when I am really excited
I love mealtimes and I'm learning to wait before I eat
I enjoy roaming the house and do not like being confined to one room or my crate, but I sleep in my crate with the door open
I'm a really sweet dog and I couldn't be more excited to find my forever family to love

I have made my way up north in search of my new family. Is that with you? If so, apply today! I won’t be available long!

Ava She is best in a home without cats. Ava is currently being fostered in Severna Park, MD.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Ashland, VA for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Ashland.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
