This is Ava - She Needs a Home

Want to give a pet a loving home? Here's how.

Each weekend, Patch will present a cat and a dog available for adoption through the Animal Care League.

Cats get Saturday, dogs get Sunday.

This is Ava, a 2-year-old pit bull mix. She's an active gal that appeared at the ACL as a stray, so we don't know anything about her background. What we see, though, is a very high energy dog that wants a family willing to teach her some manners and help her burn off that energy. An active home with resilient kids over 5 years old would be best. She'd also benefit from an experienced dog owner who can address her jumping and lack of manners. A few obedience classes and some active play is sure to make Ava a good companion.

You can meet Ava and all her friends at the ACL's office, 1011 Garfield St. For hours, call 708-848-8155.

About this column: Each weekend, we pick a pet that needs a home. If you're looking for a new family friend, it's a great place to start your search.
