About Avi

  • Status: Adopted!
  • Species: Dog
  • Current Size: 9 Pounds
  • Current Age: 3 Years 8 Months (best estimate)

Avi is definitely a people dog and wants to be by your side at all times.  She enjoys playing with toys and wrestling them, she also plays tug of war all the time with people and dogs.  She likes to stand on her back legs and look around a lot, she’ll dance on her hind legs if she gets excited.  Her favorite place is under the covers, or curled in your jacket, she loves to feel safe, snuggly and warm.  She would love to be cuddled in your lap under a blanket all the time!

Avi sleeps in a crate at night and when she has to be left alone, she cries a little a first then quiets down and sleeps.  She is pretty well potty trained but has a few accidents, she just really doesn’t like being out in the cold, but who can blame her!  She is working on improving her housetraining and will go on potty pads inside.

Avi and her baby Bindi where recently rescued from the Denver Animal Shelter.  Since both she and her baby were strays Avi is a little nervous with strangers including strange dogs.  She does warm up to them, it just takes a little bit of time to trust.  She will growl a little and bark at strangers or if she hears a strange sound but it’s not for very long and she usually stops when you say no.  She is just a bit of an alpha and needs a strong leader to keep her in line. Avi also likes friendly cats and calm older children, younger children move too quickly for her which makes her nervous.  Avi is bursting with love and personality and can’t wait to find her forever happy home where she can snuggle with her human all the time!
