Alva's Story

Alva was born in Sweden on November 16th, 2015 and stayed there till she was 10 weeks old till we picked her up, we took Alva to Austria by plane and from there we drove to Slovenia, where she lived with family until she was 11 months old, so that she could fulfil the requirements to be able to move to Australia.

Alva's Personality

Alva is a very loving girl to people that she knows, she loves to try to gain the attention of new people who ignore me, but can be very reserved at first of new people if they are giving her attention straight away, but tends to warm up quickly. She is very playful and always ready for a game of catch or chasey. She is fearless around loud noises or new objects. Alva is quite smart as she learns new commands very quickly and is very gentle with kids, as she has been around kids of all ages. She can get stressed on car rides as she still gets car sick, but is still always happy to jump in and lie down in the car for trips!

Alva has met many different types of dogs during her travels, she has played with small dogs, such as Cavalier King Charles and Pugs, played with medium sized dogs, such as Huskies and Dingoes, and has played with large dogs, such as Dogo Argentinos, German Shepherds and Karst Shepherds.

When she first moved over to Australia, Alva was very stressed and overwhelmed with the transition, especially since she travelled a very long distance by plane to Melbourne to be in quarantine for 10 days before taking another plane to Perth. This big and sudden change affected her personality at first, but within a couple of weeks of being there, she settled in and her normal personality returned.

Alva has had a temperament evaluation done by a qualified professional, which is available upon request.
