My Story

This cutie pie is young Summer, and she is more than ready to spend the rest of this summer (and many more) with her very own furever family! Miss Summer has been through a lot in her young life, but we are seeing sure signs of her lovely temperament as she is getting used to being pampered by her foster family. This cute girly is a happy, easy-going pup who loves playing with her foster siblings. She also has great leash manners and is the most wonderful companion for taking a stroll downtown or anywhere in the neighborhood. These days, Summer is a diligent student mastering her basic cues; 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 girl! Summer may be a tad shy when meeting new people, possibly due to her unfortunate upbringing, but give her ample time and space and she will warm up and be your best friend very soon. In fact, Summer is quite the cuddle bug with her favorite people, and she adores being brushed and pampered. This pretty girl will do best in a loving home where her people will take the time to show her the ropes of navigating the human world, as well as work on building her confidence with lots of pawsitive reinforcement. We know that Summer will be a wonderful addition to one lucky family!

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.
