Reston, VA

This week’s Reston Pet of the Week is Ava, a rescue from the Fairfax County Animal Shelter. Here is what her owner, Katie, has to say about her:

Miss Ava is a 1-year-old Husky Australian Cattle Dog mix that came into my life this past February.
I adopted her from the Fairfax County Animal Shelter, where I fell in love with her beautiful blue eyes.
She has properly filled a hole in my heart with the loss of my Siberian Husky, Sadie.

Ava is a sweet soul and lots of energy. Our time together is spent hiking, long walks, and “bikejoing”(mountain biking with a dog) on the W & OD trial. She is getting acclimated to her new life in Reston and adjusting well. I, on the other hand, have had to adjust to a youngster back in the home! Discipline, consistency, and love have worked to have our lives blend together.

I’m grateful to have Ava in my life. She is a handful but, worth it.
