Summer's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, not good with kids, and not good with dogs.

Summer's Story...
Summer is a four year old Dutch Shepherd mix (she was adopted, so we don’t know her exact breed). She weighs 60lbs and is trained, healthy, friendly and loving.

Summer is spayed and up to date on all of her shots. Summer was adopted 4 years ago and is originally from New Orleans. She has been very well cared for and loved over the last 4 years. Summer's personality is energetic and eager to please as well as spirited. She is a very loyal and friendly dog. She needs some work on getting excited about other dogs but she is a very intelligent and trainable dog.

Summer wants to learn new things and new tricks. She can balance treats on her nose and flick them up to eat them. She rings a bell with her nose at the door to go outside, she absolutely loves going for walks, rides in the car, she loves giving high fives and hugs, she will talk with you and howl back at you. She has a lot of personality and spunk. She is also very affectionate and will sit on the couch with you and cuddle watching movies / TV etc.

Summer is up for adoption because our family situation has changed and we now have a very small baby that Summer does not get along with. Also, Summer typically does not get along with other dogs. She should be in a home with a yard and a family without any other dogs who will give her plenty of exercise, love and play time. Her family is very sad to see her go and hopes she finds a new home that is stressfree and loving. Summer also goes by the nick-names Badger and Little.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Summer, a Barnegat Dutch Shepherd dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dutch Shepherd for sale in Barnegat, or seeking a Dutch Shepherd dog from a breeder in Barnegat.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Barnegat already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Barnegat breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Dutch Shepherd breeders who help with Dutch Shepherd rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Barnegat paves the way for another one to be saved.
