DOG OF THE WEEK – Help Avianna find her Forever Home

January 21, 2014 at 10:52 PM

Avianna, also known as Ava, is a 2 1/2 years old female Yellow Labrador Retriever mix. She lost her back right paw when she was just a puppy. HFG paid to have a prosthetic foot fitted for her.  Ava can walk and run with or without her pink prosthetic paw and is learning to use her prosthetic foot.

Avianna is a beautiful, loving, sweet dog that doesn't realize she has a handicap. She loves to chase balls, squirrels, deer and anything else that moves. Avianna is playful and loves other dogs and people. Ava also does well in the car and loves car rides.

Extremely affectionate, Ava will lie at your feet or curl up beside you. While she wants to be with you, Ava can entertain herself easily. Ava is wonderful and her forever family will be amazed at the love and affection they'll receive from her. While it is not a requirement, Avianna would love to go to a home with another four-legged pal. Avianna is up-to-date with her vaccinations, spayed, and micro-chipped.
