Meet Summer

Hi, my name is Summer! I'm a GREEN pawprint, which means I will fit well into a home that meets some specific criteria. Here is what would work best for me in my new home:

-Personality: Active, playful, energetic, friendly, whip-smart!

-Can Live with Kids: Summer lived successfully with kids in her previous home and should be fine doing so again. Her previous owner reported that she can be a little rough in play so sturdy, dog-savvy children would be best. We're recommending ages 8+.

-Can Live with Cats: Summer's previous owner said she's been known to chase small animals and would likely do best in a cat-free home, or one with a very confident, dog-savvy cat who can stand up for themselves.

-Can Live with Dogs: Yes! Summer LOVES romping around with her friends in daily playgroup at WHS and would likely really benefit from a home with another active, energetic dog in the home. Initial intros done at WHS!

-Can do Apartment Living: Not recommended-- this high energy lady would much prefer a home with a yard.

-Potty Trained: Yes

-Bite History: No

-Positive Reward Based Obedience Classes Required: No

-Energy Level: High!!

-Needs Medical Procedure Before Going Home: Spay/microchip
-Additional Information: Summer is a super smart Lab mix with a passion for tennis balls! This friendly, eager-to-please gal would thrive in a home that can help her burn off some energy, both mental and physical. She's a dog that would excel with some sort of job to do-- activities like nosework would be right up her alley! Summer already knows a bunch of tricks (sit, shake, lay down, roll over, spin, speak) and is always ready to learn more! She would be a great match for an ACTIVE adopter who spends their time hiking, running, jogging, etc-- this energizer bunny is not much of a couch potato (although she does love to snuggle once she's had her fill of exercise!) Summer was surrendered to the shelter due to a change in family situation, and now she's ready to find a forever family to call her own! If that sounds like it could be you, submit an application to schedule an intro.

If you are interested in adopting, please fill out an application on our website ( or in person at our facility. We recommend calling into the shelter after your application has been submitted so our front desk can give you next steps on our adoption process.
