Adoptable SDR Dogs
(and sometimes a kitty or two)
Please click on the photo of any animal below that catches your eye to see more photos and a brief bio.
If you're looking to adopt a puppy (under one year of age), please read our free puppy guide.
Dogs that lack confidence may be better suited for a home with another dog. If you are applying to be a single dog household, please email us first to make sure the dog you are wanting has the confidence to thrive as a single dog.

Please check our Petfinder site below.
We update Petfinder on a regular basis, and please note not every dog is on our website. Only dogs with professional photos are on our website SO Petfinder reflects ALL the dogs in our program.
Our regular dog adoption fee is $485, however, several dogs have guardian angels that have sponsored a portion of their fee.*
Our dogs come with a Freedom Harness, a microchip, and are fully vaccinated, tested for heartworm (if over one year of age) and often tested for erhlichia. Dogs from high heartworm areas come with the remainder of their heartworm prevention.
Please watch the 10-minute video on dog training called "The Case Against Dominance/Pack Theory" (see below). SDR's mission is to educate the public as to the actual science of dog training and behavior modification. Dominance training and "pack theory" has been completely debunked by science, but is all too prevalent in our society due to misinformation.
Puppies under 6 months may still require sterilization surgery after adoption for health reasons. We require a $200 spay/neuter fee for these puppies which is refunded when adopter shows proof of spay/neuter by their veterinarian within 90 days. Our adoption contract and the State of Colorado mandates you spay/neuter, so there are no exceptions.
Heartworm is not reliably detected in dogs under one year of age, as it is an adult worm that is detectable on the test. Please make sure to continue heartworm prevention and have your SDR dog tested 3-6 months after adoption to be extra vigilant, regardless of their age or previous heartworm status if your dog came from a state such as Arkansas or Texas.
And please check our Facebook page -- www.facebook.com/summitdogrescue. We post new adoptable dogs and cats daily on our Facebook page.
ALL our dogs are adopted out with a Freedom Harness - included in the adoption fee. Please watch this short video on how it works!
