My Story

Adoption Pending. You can see more of these beautiful dogs by clicking on Rescue Dogs.

This cutie pie is Summer, and she is ready to spend all four seasons with you! Miss Summer was found as a stray in Georgia. She can be a little shy of people or other dogs at first but once she gets to know you, she looks for attention and thrives on it.  She is an eager girl and has a strong desire to please, especially when it means she gets extra love and attention for being the best! Summer enjoys quiet walks and likes to sniff around, going with the flow and happily trotting along for the duration. She very much wants to please. She is easy to train and is especially treat driven and responds well to praise. Summer is quite the cuddle bug with her favorite people, and she adores being brushed and pampered. This pretty girl also likes her spa days and being groomed, blow dried and clipped. For the someone(s) who will take a little time to love and work with her, Summer will be the pyrfect companion!

NYS Registered Rescue # RR102

Our goal is to assess every application on its own merits. Key considerations are: 1) the experience of the applicant with large breed dogs 2) children in the household or regularly visiting the household are ready for a large-breed dog who is a guardian by nature and 3) the sex of other dogs currently residing in the household to avoid same-sex aggression issues. For puppies under six months old, the applicant’s ability to socialize the puppy with older dogs is a priority.

If you can't foster or adopt at this time, please consider helping our Neediest Cases or making a tax-exempt donation by visiting our Donate page.
