Introducing AVERY, a resilient 5-year-old shepherd mix with a heartwarming journey to share. Despite a challenging past of neglect, Avery has blossomed into a shining example of strength and spirit. She came to us flea infested with severe hair loss, malnourished and underweight, and unable to walk correctly with overgrown nails. Avery has undergone a remarkable transformation on her path to recovery and is now eagerly seeking her forever family.

Weighing approximately 55 pounds, Avery is close to her ideal weight and just needs to gain a few more pounds to reach her perfect balance. Fully housebroken and crate-trained, she demonstrates excellent manners and responds to basic commands with enthusiasm. Avery LOVES people of all kinds, and can't wait to play with you or cuddle on the couch. She is a very happy, easygoing and fun-loving gal!

While she adores human interaction, Avery is still learning proper behavior around food due to her past experiences with starvation. She doesn't bite, but her eagerness for food may lead her to be a bit too curious around meal times, making her best suited for a household without small children carrying snacks. However, her intelligence and willingness to learn ensure that she'll master proper manners swiftly.

Avery's playful disposition extends to her interactions with other dogs, making her an ideal companion for households with canine friends. While she may have an enthusiastic approach to play, her past experience in a home with cats suggests she could adapt well to feline companions with a bit of confidence.

Above all, Avery's love for people shines through in every wag of her tail and eager glance. Whether she's frolicking in the yard or snuggled up on the couch, she delights in the company of her human companions. Despite facing adversity, Avery's resilient spirit serves as a testament to the incredible capacity for love and healing.

Unfortunately, Avery has a suspected CCL tear, but rest assured, we are committed to covering the cost of her treatment. With the support of a caring adopter willing to guide her through recovery and rehabilitation, Avery is poised to overcome this final obstacle on her journey to optimal health.
