Story
Graham is a very sweet and playful dog! He is one of our longest residents as he has been here since September of 2022! We took him on from another rescue, so he has not known much of the comforts of a home. He enjoys walks outside, playing with toys, and sleeping in crazy positions. He loves attention from anyone and everyone. He just wants to be loved. He would need a special owner who is understanding of his needs, as he was born deaf. In his ideal home he would be the only pet as he loves all the attention to himself. He would do well with kids 12+ that can understand the needs of a deaf dog. He would do best in a home with an active owner. His adoption fee is covered by an amazing sponsor who comes in at least once a week to teach him sign language and just spend some time with him. Please call 302-834-7387 or email crf@summit-vet.com to meet Graham!

Story
Meet Cookie. She is one of the poodles we rescued from the puppy mill back in January. Cookie is 6 years old, and she weighs 12 lbs. She was a mill momma most of her life. When she came to our rescue, she was really shut down and scared. She is still working on trusting humans. She will sit on the fosters lap and let her pet her for a little bit before she jumps off (which is progress). She absolutely loves dogs of all sizes. She went to the vet and was tested for hw and Lymes disease and was negative! She did have an ear infection that was treated with antibiotic ear drops. She also received her updated vaccines. She was spayed and had dental work done to remove all of her infected teeth. Cookies perfect home would have to have another dog that way, she can learn from them that not all humans are bad. We don't know what all happened to this sweet dog. We did everything we can for her and now we hope that there is someone out there for her that has patience and understanding that it will take some time for her to learn to trust her new family. If you are interested in adopting her, please send us a message or fill out an application.

Story
Looking to rehome my terrier mix. Simba is 1.5 years old and around 70 lbs. He is a wonderful, sweet, loving big baby. He gets along with all size dogs but would be a better fit for an owner with another dog his size. He likes to run, play and snuggle. He is a lapdog! He will cuddle with you every night and be your best friend. He is fixed and is up to date on his shots.
