My story

Meet Vern, the sweetest goodbye in the region!

Vern is a sweet and gentle 6 year old and 17 lb love. He was surrendered to CRT when his family was unable to care for him any longer and he quickly went to our vets to get to the bottom of his issues.

Vern unfortunately is diabetic, and due to that not being addressed early on he has gone mostly blind in both eyes. You would never guess he’s blind when you watch him sprint across open fields and stretching his legs!

Vern is very much attached to the people in his world, he loves to shadow them, and he quickly learns the environment he is in. He’s also a complete cuddle bug and will happily curl up with you on the couch!

He is house trained as long as he is let out routinely, crate trained, leash trained and just an all around sweet and gentle boy! He’s also VERY treat motivated and learns quickly!

He is neutered, UTD on shots and on HW preventative. Vern’s diabetes is being managed well with daily insulin shots and will just need routine monitoring with a vet moving forward!

His adoption donation is $300.00.

If you are interested in the above dog, please do not email us and tell us that you are interested, but submit an adoption application. The link for the application is below.

To submit an application go here……
An application must be submitted and approved before a meet-n-greet can be scheduled.

Your current dogs/cats must be spayed or neutered unless a veterinarian has determined that your current pet(s) should not be fixed due to medical reasons. They must also be up-to-date on shots and on HW preventative.

Reference checks and a home visit are required so SE dogs can only be adopted in NC/SC, VA, TN, AL, MD and GA.

Additional adoption info

If you are interested in one of our dogs, please submit an application. We require an adoption application, reference checks and home visit before adoption. We also require that all current pets be UTD on shots, on HW preventative and spayed/neutered. Adoption fee is $250.00 for Chi's over 1 year of age and $300 for Chi's under 1 year of age. Other adoption listings are priced as is. We do not set up a meet-n-greet with a dog without an approved application and a completed home visit. The process starts with an application on line and when the application and references have been checked, a home visit is required. After the HV report has been reviewed by our board, a meet-n-greet will be set up.
