Welcome Avery! This 4 month old Australian Shepherd/Heeler mix is deaf and vision impaired (at least), but she's so smart that it's easy to forget. We think she's blind in one eye and impaired in the other. Spayed and up to date on shots, Avery loves to walk, play, and cuddle. Crate trained and great with other dogs. House training and touch training in progress. If you're looking for a good girl who waits patiently for your attention and adores your every move without being overbearing, this is it.

We are happy to consider applicants from out of state. However, if the applicant is approved, they must be willing to come to our location in Troy, VA, for a meet and greet. If all parties agree that the pup and family are a good fit, they would take the pup home at that time.

GDU does ask a minimum adoption donation of 300.00. This is a minimum donation and does not cover all expenses, as we are funded solely by the angels and volunteers willing to donate time and finances. This minimum donation includes DAPP, rabies if age appropriate,, heartworm test and preventative, if age appropriate, and flea and tick treatment, as well as neutering or spaying if the animal is medically sound to undergo surgery. This minimum donation does not even begin to cover the actual expenses each animal has while in rescue, but does go directly towards vet care for our rescue animals. In an attempt to avoid tummy upset from a sudden change of food, the foster family may include a small, transitional bag of the food the dog/puppy has been eating. And if the dog/puppy has grown attached to a special item (like a toy or blanket), they may send that along, as well.
