Pumpkin is an incredibly happy and loving girl of just under 1 1/2 years old that came to us in July, 2020, when her and her brother George were removed from a backyard during a terrible hail and lightening storm.  For 9 long months, we waited for the dogs to be signed over by the owners who had no interest in them and finally, they are free to be adopted!  Pumpkin and George can be adopted together, but they don't have to be.  They were not kept together in their yard.  Pumpkin is an absolute love.  She has not had much training in her young life and she's full of energy, but she absolutely loves people and is a fast learner. 

She enjoys toys and running and getting her energy out, but she loves getting lots of attention more than anything else.  She's very sweet and affectionate and she walks well on a leash and is gentle too.  Pumpkin gets along with larger dogs but needs a home with no cats or small dogs.  Pumpkin would be overjoyed to be welcomed into your home!  Call 609-693-1900 or email: for an application for Pumpkin.  File#29646  7/6/21
