About Ava and the Prince:
Ava and Prince are like most dogs. They want a place to call home, where love is yummy like peanut butter and belly rubs never end. This is their sweet, real-life story about home, family and love.
Ava, formerly "Foxy," is given up by her family because she's too energetic. Prince, formerly "Sam," is found abandoned and alone. They have a lot in common. Both like to play, roll in the grass, dress in costumes and eat shoes. In their new home, there are a few house rules. It'll take patience and love, as Ava and Prince find a special place in the heart of a lady who smells like lemons and gumdrops.
