Meet Avalon!

1 Year Old, 10lbs at most of her adult weight


New to leash walking but brings a particularly adorable style to it

Initially shy but falls in love quickly

Spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, up to date on flea preventatives

As sometimes happens in rescue, when we met Avalon it became instantly clear to us that in her pre-PAWS life people had not been kind to her. An extra flinch or a tremor remind us of the sad reality that for some pets PAWS is their first loving home. 

While Avalon takes a moment to warm up through the scars of her past, that moment is brief and abruptly ends as she trusts you and bursts from her shell into the enthusiastic, affectionate, and energetic puppy she was meant to be. A lap dog at heart and happy to be held, Avalon’s people will always have a smiling face at their side. Learning to walk on a leash for the first time but thrilled to be outside with you, walks with Avalon are filled with happy spins and joyful leaps. 

In a home with Avalon you will have the opportunity to watch her experience life’s many joys for the very first time. Her capacity to love in boundless, and we can promise that watching  her learn to enjoy life will change your outlook on yours.
