The type of home i need.

i would like a rural home.

I would like to live with other dogs

Needs an experienced home with no children

Ava is a gorgeous springer spaniel/saluki cross. Being a spaniel cross Ava is extremely intelligent, and absolutely LOVES a tennis ball. This fab young lady is a bundle of love once she gets to know you and will always greet you with a waggy tail. Ava would love an extremely active or even working home to keep her brain busy and tired, her spaniel side of her makes her a real joy to train, here very high ball drives mean she would be brilliant at scent work, agility, flyball or even cannicross. 

Ava really enjoys the company of other playful and well mannered dogs, and would really like to have other dogs in the home to play with and teach her the a house is a safe place to be. She has many friends here in kennels and loves running around and playing but also loves having another dog to cuddle up with during her down time in kennels. Ava even enjoyed a week away in Devon with one of our volunteers Laura, she loved meeting other dogs and loved her walks on the beach. 

 Ava needs an dedicated owner who is looking for a dog to work with and continue building her confidence and the training she has started in kennels. Ava came to us with some guarding issues around high value food like bones and chews, we worked with her here at sun valley and these issues have improved greatly, her new owner would need to be prepared to continue this work once she is in a home. 

Given the time to settle Ava will become a brilliant companion for someone. She has experienced a lot of upheaval and a lack of guidance in her short life and just needs someone to show her how amazing life outside of kennels can be. Please only enquire about ava if you are an experienced dog owner who is prepared to work with ava through her settling in and behavioural issues. She will be an amazing dog for someone but just needs the chance to prove this.
