Why Not Me? Meet Aviva!

We’ve partnered with Pawsitive Alliance for the #WhyNotMePets campaign to give difficult-to-home pets an extra paw up. These lovable pets are ready to find their forever homes.


Breed: Terrier Mix

Age/Gender/Size: 3 Yrs./Spayed Female/44 Lbs.

Likes: Playing hard!

Dislikes: Cats and small dogs

Special Considerations: Flight risk; always leash or tether. Good with medium/ larger dogs who are confident but not pushy. Best in a home with dog-savvy kids (aged 10+).



Aviva is the life of the party! Nothing gets her tail thumping like a jog in the park, a petting session, or a car ride with her favorite people. Aviva is a 3-year-old Terrier mix with a zest for life. She loves walks, treats and physical activity, so if you like a lot of outdoor adventures, Aviva would be a great match for you!

Aviva is not for the faint-of-heart because this little girl likes to go, go, go, and she’s been called a “flight risk” – so she’ll need to be leashed and wearing her no-pull harness wherever she goes. She is good with medium to larger dogs who are confident but not pushy. Emerald City Pet Rescue recommends adopters have a home with a yard without cats and only older kids who have been around large dogs before.

Do you have room in your home and heart for this happy, active, wiggly girl? Aviva has a head tilt and miniscule eye due to prior conditions, but is in good health. She has been fully vetted and spayed. Please contact Emerald City Pet Rescue by calling 206-557-4661 or by emailing for more information on Aviva!

Every Wednesday, Healthy Paws will highlight a new pet from Pawsitive Alliance’s #WhyNotMePets campaign. Visit the #WhyNotMePets page for a list of adoptable dogs and cats.
