When thinking about potentially adopting a dog, many things must be taken into consideration. Do you want your dog to be sweet and gentle? Good with people? Potty-trained and calm? Well if any of those are on your list, be prepared to meet your mate. Azura, a 5-year-old terrier, pit bull mix is one of those all-star dogs that people dream about having in their home.

Name: Azura

Sex: Female

Breed: Terrier, pit bull mix

Adult size: Large

Age: 5 years, 1 month

Sign: Sagittarius

Spayed/neutered: Yes

Adoption donation: $0

Location: In foster

What APA! says about Azura:

Azura has never met a person (or a soft squeaky ducky) that she didn't love. And all she wants in return is a good belly rub. Oh, and abundant love.

Azura is also a great detective. She enjoys puzzle games that challenge her to find the treats. (By the way, she has a wonderful memory and always solves the puzzle.) She walks well on a leash and knows the "sit" and "give kisses" commands. She also loves car rides!

She seems to be fearful of other dogs, but her foster family thinks that she could learn to be comfortable around them over time. She may do best in a home with older kids. She is house trained and has not needed to be crated in her foster home; she hasn't chewed or damaged anything while alone.

Azura has abundant love to give, and just wants love and security in return.

Why APA! says Azura deserves your love:

A champion at cuddling, she's extremely affectionate, snuggling up to people, giving major kisses and falling asleep on their feet or in their laps. She's a calm, quiet girl who just wants to be next to her humans. She'll go off to explore, but comes back every couple of minutes to make sure her person is still there.
