About Summer

Meet Summer! This 1-year old ray of sunshine came to us from a local animal shelter after her owner could no longer care for her. She appears to have already had a litter in her short life and was surrendered to the shelter with her mom, who had clearly had many, many litters.

Summer is AMAZING! She’s shy at first, then goofy and fun-loving, just like a rocket pop on a hot day. Let’s be honest, we all love summer! And just like the season, Summer is reminiscent of joy – school vacations, pool parties, picnics, lemonade, and ridin’ bikes ‘til the streetlights come on. She has a lower energy level than most dogs her age and loves to just hang out with her family. In fact, Summer is a little shadow – she likes to be where you are and is always physically touching someone (human or canine) while sleeping. A conscious AND subconscious snuggler!

Summer is a soft and warm youngster. She is a densely packed low rider with floppy pendant ears and round soulful puppy eyes, who loves, loves, loves other dogs. We think she would be happiest in a home with a canine friend. She is mellow, happy to just sit around and chew a bone, or go for a leisurely walk. She is great in the car and on leash, though she has a quirky habit of speeding up and slowing down…if you were walking behind her, you’d wonder if she were distracted driver. And she doesn’t love the rain (sugar melts!). Summer is nondestructive, never demands attention, and finds things to do on her own. And she is a foodie! She will eat ANYTHING and EVERYTHING with glee, though she’s a touch unladylike while taking and eating treats. Bananas are a favorite summertime snack!

Summer is young and doesn’t seem to have been exposed to much in her short life. New situations make her a touch fearful, but she quickly gains confidence and loves everyone she meets. Let Summer bring you cherished family memories year-round! Due to her size and lack of history, older kids would be best for this cuddle monster.

Summer’s top 3 priorities:
1. A family that is up to the task of snuggling…day and night, endlessly, relentlessly, around the clock.
2. A family who has another dog(s) – Summer gains confidence around other pups and loves to play.
3.A family who wants a dog who sleeps in the bed and doesn’t mind her stretching out to landscape mode.
