Summer is Coming – Adopted


Summer isn’t quite over yet, but look who came to Chilton County’s Humane Society? Joe contacted Becky Harshman and told her there’s a dog waiting for me there!

Her name is Summer, and isn’t she gorgeous. We believe she will be on transport, and will arrive to Jesse’s place August 7th. Our volunteer transporter, Tom Mueller, will be helping us out.

Not much is known about Summer at this time, I’m just hoping that she’s Heartworm negative.

Update from Becky: Summer is heartworm negative!

August 13 Update:

Summer has really benefitted from spending a couple of days with Jesse at his facility, Sit N’ Stay, The Villages Doggie Daycare. You simply must read his insights that he posted in the first comment of this posting. We are so fortunate to have wonderful people like Jesse to help release the inner-puppy of our dogs!

Also, make sure you check out Summer’s photo album!

Here’s Summer’s new hair cut! See all of her updated photos on Facebook.

Summer has been adopted by Lynne Flannery, her foster! Hey! It happens when you meet an awesome dog!

    Summer is a Rough Collie, in AKC terms, and yes she will have a beautiful coat, when it grows back.

    I speculate she was a "forget about it dog." Those pups that have been banished or confined to a small pen, and given water and food once a day- solitary confinement.

    This first became evident to me when I felt all of the matting in her fur. The masses of tangled fur and filth had an extremely bad odor. Thanks to rescue groomer, Carol Wishard, Summer is much happier,and easier to hug, but now she looks like a "Smoothie" with a big bushy tail.

    I originally thought she was overwieght, because she wasn't able to jump up to the deck with the others. However, the problem is that she has very poor muscle tone. This was revealed after the sheering, and further backs-up my theory of confinement.

    The good news is, now Summer walks with a little bounce in her step, and is building some social skills, as well as muscle strenth. With regular exercise, she'll continue to grow stronger, but she now needs a health screening.

    Summer, Charlie, and possibly Derby/Fiona are leaving us at Sit & Stay on Friday. They all need vetting, and to take the next step in their new lives.

    Once Summer has a clean bill of health she's ready for a loving, attentive, and devoted home; she will return those qualities in spades for the rest of her life!

    Summer is house trained, ignores the cat, but she's ready to learn some basic obiedence skills. No bad behavior, like chewing, but she's never been taught anything other than how to stay in one place. She'll be kid tested at "Border Collie Boot Camp"…

    Good luck in your new life Summer, you'll do great!!!!
