When Sumi was adopted in February 2016, she was already an older dog and we were happy that she was able to find a home.  Unfortunately, the family that adopted her and Maddie were unable to keep them and the girls returned to rescue in October 2018.  Sumi deserves to find a for-ever family that will cherish her and give her what she needs for whatever time she has left.  Small dogs live a long time so we are hopeful that Sumi has several more great years ahead of her.  


If Sumi and Maddie are adopted together, we will reduce the adoption fee for both dogs.

Energy level:                              medium to high
Good with dogs:                       yes    
Good with cats:                        yes  
Good with children:               Yes - 6+      Chance is still very much a puppy and will "mouth" (use his                                                                       teeth) when playing.  He is also jumping on people and will scratch little                                                                ones.

Vetting after adoption:       monthly preventatives.   
Heartworm status:                Positive.    Chase has started a 30 day course of  Doxycycline.                                                                                       Doxycycline  kills an organism that lives in adult  heart  worms and                                                                           therefore weakens the  adult worms so they die  off quicker.      Because                                                                 of his age, he likely has a very light  load of heart  worms so he will not                                                                    need any additional  treatment other than being on  monthly                                                                                           Heartgard.

Breed:                                           perhaps a Doodle?  Retriever and miniature Poodle?    
Age:                                                 estimated at 10 to 11 months (as of 1 October, 2018)

Good with cats:                       yes 
Good with children:               Yes - 6+      Chewie is very good with older children.  He would probably not                                                                                   appreciate young, noisy children though as he is still getting used to living indoors                                                                 and can be a little skittish at times.  
Vetting accomplished:          fully vetted.  Needs no routine vetting until June 2019.
Vetting after adoption:       monthly preventatives.   
Heartworm status:                Negative

Crate trained:                           yes  
leashed trained:                      yes but is a bit skittish on the leash and outside so he will need patience and plenty                                                               of opportunities to experience new things to gain confidence. 
basic obedience:                     just starting....   

Other:                                                  Louie will need a patient family that is willing to give him time and space to become more                                                                               comfortable.   He is skittish...  he was lost for about 4 months and out on his own fending for                                                                         himself and has only been back in foster care since the end of September.  He is still very                                                                                 unsure of a lot of things.  He would do best in a home with another dog that is confident and                                                                         friendly and would help him learn how to "dog".

Vetting already done:  combination vaccine, neuter, micro-chip, rabies vaccine, 30 day course of Doxycycline, current on monthly preventatives.  

Vetting needed after adoption:  heart worm treatment, monthly preventatives for heart worm and flea/tick

Heart worm status:  positive.  We'll be getting him into the base vet and prepped for heart worm treatment (which we will be paying for).   He will first do a 30 day course of Doxycycline (antibiotic) and then will get first Melarsomine injection in December and 2nd and 3rd injection in January.    He should test negative for heart worms by April 2019.    


So far he is proving to be a very good house-guest that likes to spend time with the resident dog but really loves to be around people.   


Adoption fee is currently $300 and we will be financially covering his heart worm treatment ($425 range).
