About me

Age: 9 years 4 months
Breed: Rhodesian Ridgeback Cross
Gender: Female

Summer is a super sweet girl who is desperate to find her retirement home. She is looking to be the only dog in the home where she can enjoy peaceful walks and snooze her evenings away on a comfy sofa!

Summer is looking for a home where she will not be left long hours as she does have history of destructiveness within the home. However, we have seen no signs of this in kennels and she does tend to settle in her bed when left. She would also need to be in a low dog populated area with access to quiet walks.

Summer can live with children aged 14+ and will need slow introductions to new people and visitors. When introducing Summer to new people, you will have to allow her to go at her own pace and say hello to new people as and when she is ready. Summer does have history of being nervous around men and really doesn’t like people in hats as this can really spook her. She can also be nervous of some household appliances such as hoovers and brushes.

Summer is not well socialised with other dogs, she can be very wary of other dogs when out of walks and has been known to lunge and growl. For this reason, Summer is now being muzzle trained and will need to wear a muzzle when walked and should be walked in low dog populated areas.

Once Summer has gotten to know you and has built a bond, she is super cuddly and gets really giddy and excited to see you. Although Summer does love a fuss and a cuddle, she is quite independent and enjoys doing her own thing around the house. She loves her squeaky, stuffed teddy bears and will often play by herself when in her kennel! Summer will make a fabulous addition to the family and is longing to find her forever home where she can have a relaxed and settled life!
