Ayvah – Amazing Heeler Mix Seeks Job and Home on Ranch, Farm or Acreage
Hi, My name is Ayvah!
Ayvah is amazing! This adorable 3 year old mixed breed is super smart and very loving. She is a nice mix of Heeler (Australian Cattle Dog), Golden Retriever and Siberian Husky. Ayvah is only 3 years old, very healthy and has been spayed. She will be rehomed with some supplies. She is looking for a rural/country home in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, or in the vicinity of New Orleans LA.
Ayvah is very much loved by her owner, who has had her since she was an adorable puppy. Ayvah is exceptionally well trained and knows lots of tricks and commands. She is very obedient. She gets along fine with other dogs, as long as she is properly introduced to them.
Ayvah’s owner is a student who is heartbroken to have to make the difficult decision to find her a new home. With a very busy schedule and limited resources, she simply cannot provide Ayvah with the time, attention and exercise she needs and deserves. Like many Australian Cattle Dogs, Ayvah can be nervous at times – much more so when she doesn’t get the activity and mental stimulation she needs. In her small world, Ayvah feels very protective of her owner and can be nervous of strangers.
She can nip when her nerves get the better of her – not in an aggressive way, but rather a way of letting you know she is not quite sure about you yet. With her owner and people she is familiar with, she is an absolute sweetheart. The most well-behaved, obedient dog ever.
The best situation for Ayvah would be to live with a dog owner experienced with Heelers, and who can provide her with the active, working lifestyle she needs. A farm, ranch or acreage with livestock would be PERFECT for her. She would love to follow her special someone around doing chores and enjoying country life. Getting lots of exercise and mental stimulation is sure to help with her anxiety and nipping issues.
Ayvah loves her creature comforts, so would not be suited as an “outdoor dog”. She would love to be a cowgirl’s companion with a job to do during the day – and a great snuggle buddy at night. She is used to cuddling and loves nothing more than to sleep at her owners feet.
Ayvah is not a good match for families with young children, but would be an exceptional pet/working dog for those with a farm, acreage or ranch. She needs an owner who understands her, and who will be diligent about taking great care when she meets strangers.
Please offer this very smart and talented little dog a home and a job today. She can’t wait to amaze you with her abilities and charm you with her very sweet personality.
There is a $75 adoption/rehoming fee. Some supplies will be included.
Please call Debbie toll free at (888) 720-3322 for more information about Ayvah. I will be happy to speak with you.

Ayvah is a very loving animal. She follows me around all day like a shadow and if I’m not home waits eagerly for me to get home. When I arrive she usually jumps on my to say hello and as I go about my evening (eating dinner and such) she nestles herself by my feet. When she is really happy, she prefers to jump onto the couch to be close to me, or she will jump on the bed to sleep by my feet (we don’t do this much, she has her own pillow).
She is a very alert and protective dog. Anytime anyone comes to the door she barks to let me know. She prefers to sit by the window quite a bit, almost as if she is keeping guard. While she is quiet and calm a majority of the time, when it’s play time…it’s go time! She has this dragon she absolutely loves and a few other toys that she will put in your lap until you play tug of war or tell her to drop it and throw it for her.
She also loves to chase light reflections or laser pointers. In fact, if you say the word “laser” she starts looking around for the little red dot. Ayvah can be high energy, and loves playing with her puppy-cousin Comet as well.
Ayvah’s Current Home Environment
Ayvah lives in a one bedroom apartment with one cat. The home is pretty quiet and does not receive a lot of guests.
Ayvah’s Current Family:
It’s a small family with me, Ayvah and my cat Suri. Ayvah and Suri don’t play together, but they do cohabitate. Occasionally we have foster puppies over.
As playful as she is Ayvah is very nervous around strangers because of a traumatic situation she experienced while I was on vacation. When a stranger first comes over she barks and growls but will keep her distance. If they try to touch her or make sudden movements, she may nip them. Her past behavioral specialist said that she is insecure, not aggressive.
Ayvah’s Favorite Toys, Foods, Activities?
Her favorite toy is her dragon that is indestructible to chewing. She also loves her “laser” and will start looking around when you say the word. She goes crazy for her laser pointer and can chase if for long periods of time. It’s hilarious. Ayvah also loves going on runs, she really is a free spirit.
Cute Ayvah Story:
A funny story? Hmm, it would have to be peanut butter on the nose. Try that. It’s ADORABLE.
Why is Ayvah Being Rehomed?
I am a full time student and do not have the resources to care for her right now. My apartment complex is charging a huge deposit and I can’t pay it. I also don’t think I can exercise her enough or give her the security she needs. She is an insecure dog that nips out of anxiety and fear.
Ayvah’s Perfect Adoptive Home Will Be:
I would like an adoptive family who will keep her as an INDOOR dog in a quiet home with no young children. She needs a home where she will be kept active with people who can possibly run her or has a playful dog that is about her size (she would need to be introduced to him or her slowly). I am also looking for a family who is patient and experienced with dogs with behavioral issues.
I would like to stay in touch if the family is open to that.
