Hello Summer! Summer is hot and we want to introduce you to our little firecracker.
Meet our girl, Summer. This little firecracker comes with a short fuse! What does that really mean? It means she is short on trust and therefore, should be handled accordingly. Summer came to us after being owner surrendered at a shelter. There were no indications on the intake form that she had any behavioral issues. However, we have since discovered that she will bite when she does not feel safe. It takes a very long time for Summer to learn to trust even for those who mean her no harm. We considered putting her in boarding training but had at least two trainers tell us that she just needs to be an only dog in a very low key, all adult household. She does very well with most of her dog housemates, but can be territorial with them. Summer seems to have a very selective nature that few people or dogs can pass muster on. She just wants to be your lap dog and your companion.
We are looking for an experienced adopter for Summer. The ideal home for Summer is a patient, relaxed and structured home. She wants to please and loves to be with her human. It will take the right person at least a month to earn most of her trust. We are hoping that someone out there is willing to give her a chance at a safe and secure environment.
Summer is a beautiful tri-color brown / rust and white little girl. She is about 3 years old and is 7 – 8 pounds. She is potty trained and is crate trained. She is such a loving girl when she feels safe. We are praying that there is an experience, patient home that will give this girl a chance on life.
