I still can't see her feet too well in these pictures So my guess of medium size still stands. 30 to 40 pounds?

Default Summer

Hi! We adopted 8 month old Summer in November from a rescue organization. We were told by her foster mom that she came from Missouri and was in a situation with 31 other dogs. She was really shy and has warmed up to our household except for my husband. She barks and growls at him when he enters the room despite non-scolding, scolding, etc. and he has done nothing to cause this reaction. I do notice that when she does this her tail is wagging. She greets me and our youngest son who lives with us at the door, jumping on me in happiness to see me (Have to work on that) and loves to go on walks with me morning, evening and night (we put in about 2-1/2 miles a day). She will follow me around the house but does bark and growl when she thinks she hears things when we are alone in the house. Because we thought it might help we adopted a 7 year old yellow lab, Millie, from an animal shelter where she had been for a long time. And they get along somewhat. We walk together, the three of us with Summer on leash and Millie on/off leash. Millie is afraid of Summer after they have gotten into a couple of fights with poor Millie coming out on the losing end because although she is much bigger, she is slower and she knows it's bad. So we don't put down food plates unsupervised or give chews unsupervised in the house. But when they are both outside Summer will nip at Millie's heels or run circles around her or try to jump on her back. Is it puppy enthusiasm or as my younger son fears that Summer was taught how to fight? When they have fought she's bitten ears and cheek and back. I'd appreciate any comments on how to handle the husband and other dog situations.

I am no doggy psychiatrist by any means, but I have found thru friends with situations where he dog growled at a man or a woman or a child, etc that in the past they hd been mistreated by a man, woman or child. Since you don't know the back ground, it could very well be that she was mistreated by a man.

This is not the same but we adopted a fully grown golden retriever 1 to 1 1/2 years old back in 2002. She was also heart worm positive and we paid to have her treated. We had 3 goldens including liter mates who were only 2 1/2. The three was 5 at the time. It was hard on Honey having to be crated for 6 weeks and watching the others be free. But all worked out and we had her for 12 years before cancer claimed her.

Okay, she loved everyone. As far as she was concerned anyone that came here came to see her and she had to greet them at the door. Then one day when she was about 8 (and our last golden at the time) I had a new dryer delivered. The guy came to the front door, she ran to the door to greet the person, I opened the door and let him, and instead of her pushing ahead, tail wagging, she backed up. She actually went and stood in the hall leading back to the bedrooms. She didn't growl, but stood with tail between legs.

When the guy went out to get the dryer, I opened the garage door so it could be brought in thru the garage and into the laundry room off the kitchen. When he came in with it, she went into the livingroom. When it was hooked up and we went to the bar for me to sign papers, she ran down the hall again.

There was no apparent cause for her actions. Some suggest maybe it was becaue he was wearing a uniform--nope, hubby actually wore a uniform, we had had delivery men here before and she greeted them. Maye it was his cap--no every man that puts in foot in this house from family too friends wear baseball caps. Was he of a different rce, etc. Well, he was Hispanic, but so are several of our friends, and when on walks Honey greets EVERYONE, no mater race. The guy had even said he owned a couple fo dogs and I took him at his word when he told me about them and his kids. It couldn't have been dog scent as she was around folks all the tiem who owned dogs.

We never did figure it out. that was the ONLY time she ever acted like that around any human. Heck, she even LOVED our vet and was besides herself with joy when she heard him coming towards the exam room

I Summer is still a puppy, it is very likely that is puppy play. When we got Honey and after her treatment, she would run along behind Hunter and grab his back leg and stop, almost pulling him down. He would just sit and wait for her to go bug one of theother dogs. Buck didn't let her do that to him, and for some reason, she didn't do it to Kaycee, only Hunter.

I hope someone can come up with some ideas for you--oh, and welcome to the forum.

Rescue dogs do often come with some "emotional baggage" that it takes time to work out. All of my dogs are rescues. 3 Goldens comment about maybe Summer was mistreated by a man could very well be true. Patience and love should eventually help Summer to trust your husband. My little girl who is the youngest of the 2 also follows us around and barks whenever she hears anything outside. She thinks she is protecting us. We have to look out the window and tell her that everything is okay. When we got Annie she was 3/4 months old. Our other dog, Dunbar, was 4 at the time. Annie likes to play with Dunny which is "play fighting". We do watch them and when we think it gets too rough we separate them. As Annie has gotten older (she's almost 2), she not as much interested in the rough housing. Hopefully, Summer is just puppy playing.
