Avery is not what you’d call an “easy” dog. She’s hates strangers. She requires sedation just to have her nails trimmed. And to make matters worse, she’s camera shy!

Tiger and Camille were adopted from Animal Kind in Hudson, New York, 16 years ago. Avery was picked up, 2 1/2 years ago, as a stray in North Carolina. She was placed in a kill shelter there. Mercifully she was brought up North by a rescue organization in New York. She spent six months in and out of foster homes before she fell into our laps.
