My story

Hi, I`m Berlin! I`m a 5 year old, neutered male, pitbull mix weighing about 56lbs. I was brought into a shelter in Texas with a very swollen Toe. They discovered I had a bullet imbedded in my bone that they couldn`t afford to take out. The folks at the Summit County Animal Shelter agreed to transfer me to Colorado and have my injury taken care of immediately. I healed up great and don`t even know I`m missing a toe. Unfortunately they discovered I have degenerative joint disease and needed to have another surgery. I`m now ready! I`m a sweet and loving boy who wants nothing more than a home with a family who will treat me right and love me forever. I am good with dogs, but not cats. Need a new snuggle buddy? I`ll keep you warm on all these cold nights!

More about this shelter

Summit County Animal Control and Shelter is a division of the Summit County Sheriff's Office. We provide animal control services for unincorporated Summit County and Shelter services for all of Summit County. We are an open admission shelter, therefore, we accept all animals from Summit County residents no matter condition or behavior. We are fortunate to be located in a community where pets are valued and therefore have the ability to transfer in many pets from other overcrowded shelters within Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and Kansas. Our compassionate staff really loves what they do and strives to find the right pet match for each adopter.
