Ava-roo was adopted from the New Beginnings Shih-Tzu Rescue group in early May 1, 2010.  Ava is eight years old and a full bred Shih Tzu.

Ava-roo is named, in part, after The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place: The Mysterious Howling by Maryrose Wood.  One of the children is known as Cassie-o-roo (howling liking a dog.).  It’s a spectacular book and I really wanted to call her Cassie-o-roo, but the rescue group called her Asia and we decided the name Ava reflects her glamorous look.  So we put the two together and she is  Ava-roo.

We are learning more and more about Ava-roo.  The more we know about her, the deeper she gets into our hearts.

Some Hints
I think it takes a while for the videos to load... they're HD format and are pretty big files. If you click on the arrow and then immediately click the pause button. This allows the video to load. Once there is more grey line than black line, you should be able to press the play button. Enjoy.
