Mavis in TEXAS   

In shelter Dog

Farmingville, NY, 11738
Pet name:
Mavis in TEXAS
Red / Chestnut / Orange
Mavis is located in TEXAS. She is available for local adoption or adoption and transport to another state. There are not enough homes for all the unwanted dogs down there, so she is willing to relocate for a good, loving, forever home.

Mavis was rescued from a fast kill, small town, dog pound.  She was underweight and had skin problems from the nasty dirty greasy collar that was around her neck. She is a different dog now. A little pudgy at 70 pounds, but with a beautiful and fluffy coat. We think she is a retriever mix and estimate she is maybe around 5 years old.  Mavis is crate trained, house trained, well-behaved in the house, walks well on a leash, and rides well in a vehicle. Mavis loves children and all people. She appears to have no interest in cats.  She gets along with most dogs and loves to play. She loves toys and is still quite active. We do crate her at night but she does not need to be crated. Mavis is sweet, gentle, and loving. We do think she was beaten because she is scared of sticks and other things that might be used to hit her. And we do not understand why someone would hit such a good dog. Mavis must be in the house as a loved member of the family. Mavis did get out one time and took off exploring. We had to chase her down with a vehicle and caught up to her by the post office. So she cannot be trusted off-leash, and definitely needs a fenced yard to run and play.

Mavis is healthy. She is spayed, fully vaccinated (DAPPvL2, Bordatella, rabies), and microchipped. Mavis has been treated for heartworms and they are now dead. She is on monthly heartworm and flea prevention. Mavis has a $500.00 adoption fee that includes ground transport to Warren NJ, Spring Valley/Nanuet NY, or Lisbon CT. She is being fostered in Texas and we do not have the resources to send her north until after she is adopted.
