My name is Ava and I'm six-years-old. My mother was a Vizsla but my father was an opportunist from a good neighborhood. Mom never told me who he was. I am a very sweet girl, although I tend to be very fearful and have some pretty extreme trust issues. CWVRG considers me a "special needs" girl. I came from a really sweet, wonderful family who did not do anything to cause my fear and trust issues, so please don't blame them! They loved me so much but just couldn't take care of me once a new human baby arrived. They said that they were afraid that with my anxieties and fears that the baby might inadvertently do something to really upset me. Why would I do that, I've never been known to bite!
While my last family loved me dearly, I'm not prepared to talk about the ones who had me before them, but it was really, really, bad. Because of this, one of my problems is that I have a severe crate anxiety. My foster Mom and Dad have worked hard with me. I can now be crated up to four hours while they are gone. That is huge!!!!! That doesn't mean that I can be crated while they are home, I want to be with my Mommy and Daddy. If you want to jail me while you are home, you had better be prepared to shower me with lots and lots of chew treats or you will hear from me!
Thank you, Ava

Notes from Ava's foster Mom:
We think she's a Vizsla Greyhound mix. She has the most beautiful brown coat and she runs so very fast it's amazing. She loves to run and jump. She can jump about seven feet straight up from standing. Most incredible straight up jump I have ever seen.
Ava is on an anti-anxiety medication. Ava's ideal family will be extremely patient and not have kids as her family will need to be somewhat dog savvy and be able to read her body language. She tells you through her body language how she is feeling. She needs a quiet family that does not require a lap dog or an affectionate dog, at least for quite some time. Ava will take quite awhile to be able to trust her new family, but it does come in time. Once she trusts you, Ava seeks attention on her terms and loves to be scratched under the chin or on the back of her neck. She came from a home with a dog and may be able to go to a home with dogs, but she has not been put with our dogs as she is pretty excitable with them and it makes them nervous. She has not been tested with our cats and I would not put her in a home that has small animals. She loves to try to go after mice in our yard and to dig up moles. Ava is housebroken and can be left alone for short periods outside of a crate without getting into anything. Ava can jump a 6 foot fence like it is not there so she will need to be watched closely in the yard. Ava's recall is selective so it may be safe to keep her on a 20 or 30 foot lead so you can get her back when you need to.
