    March 9, 2015 Update:

    Summer is so sweet!  She always wants to be cuddled and have her belly rubbed. Her only issue is that she is a very big girl and when she leans on you she can just about push you over!  She is very submissive though.

    Summer has a low growl to let you know when she wants out or just to get your attention. It can be a little scary at first, but it doesn't take long to realize she is not mad at you.

    Summer will need a strong owner to be able to control her on leash, just because she is such a large girl.  Continued obedience and leash training will also be necessary to ensure she is always under control.

    Summer is doing great with the dogs in her foster home. Every morning we all go outside and she loves to run around the yard.  She is a sweet loving girl who knows a few commands, like sit, shake, come, down and stay.  She responds well to treats and really enjoys attention of any kind, belly rubs, ear rubs, etc.  Any family that adopts this sweet girl is going to be very lucky and very loved by her.  We are recommending no smaller children for Summer at this point simply because she is so big and could knock young ones over easily.

    December 15, 2014 Update:

    Summer is new to MARR and has been settling into her new foster home.  Her owner recently passed away so she is so confused!  She is a big girl who could stand to lose a few pounds, but playing with her new foster brothers and sisters will definitely help with that.  Summer knows sit, down and shake and is a very calm dog that is just hopeful for a new family to start over with.
