An in-your-pocket kind of girl, Avery will follow you wherever you go! She is sweet, biddable, and always keeps her eye on her family. She wants nothing more than to be with her person to give and receive affection and would spend every minute beside you if she could.
Avery is good with everyone she meets, from kids to adults. She loves food, which can be a good motivator, but is also currently working on controlling her temptation to counter-surf. Avery is not destructive and does well in a crate overnight and during the day. She has mastered basic obedience and does well with recall but is working on not jumping when excited. Avery is still working on socializing with other dogs and will need patience as she continues to learn. She tends to react submissively to sudden movements and will need consistent, calm reinforcement that she is safe with you.
The perfect home for Avery would be one where she could be the only dog as she thrives on attention and affection from her person. She has a lot of energy and would be a great hiking partner. Could you be the adventure buddy Avery has been looking for?
