**7/8/2017 - ADOPTION PENDING!**

This little gem is Ava, an approximately 4 year old border collie.  She weighs about 38 pounds. Ava is housetrained, crate trained, gets along with other dogs, and rides well in the car.  She is a medium energy dog who walks well on leash and is happy all the time.  A great dog to spend your days with!

If you are looking for Ava, you usually need to look no further than at your side.  This is where she prefers to be.  With you.  All the time.  She plays well with the puppy in her foster home, but truly prefers to be with her people.  She loves hanging out with the family and has excellent house manners.  Ava is a quiet dog who rarely barks.  Sometimes she will let out a "woof" when playing with other dogs, but that is it.  We do not know how Ava is with cats.

Ava has dew claws on her back feet.  They cause her no problems so our veterinarian recommends leaving them as is.

Unfortunately, Ava has a history of seizures.  She was adopted from a shelter in eastern Idaho and spayed in March of this year.  She was adopted to be a diabetic alert dog for her owner.  Ava immediately took to her new job and was alerting her owner when his blood sugar was low.  About a month after being spayed she had her first seizure and a month after that another one.  Since being back at the shelter and in foster care Ava has not had any seizures.  She is on phenobarbital twice a day.  The cost is about $30 a month.  Her medical records from this year are available to her adopters.

If you are interested in possibly adopting Ava you must be willing to come to southwestern Idaho to meet and adopt her.

Ava's adoption fee is $200.  She is spayed, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped.
