Tia says, “She and my kids basically grew up together.” That’s how long Summer has been at Villalobos. Since 8 weeks old, Summer has lived at the rescue center. She is now aged in age. It breaks Tia’s heart that nobody ever stepped up to require the sweet girl in.

“Through no fault of her own, she’s still here. She got overlooked,” Tia says within the video below. At now , Summer’s age affects her physically. She has bad arthritis, so bad actually that her legs are awkwardly bent. She moves a touch slower. But mentally, she may be a happy, grateful dog.

There are many canine residents at the rescue center because the Torres family doesn’t have the guts to show any dog away. As adopters are available trying to find the right companion, Tia and her family attempt to hear what they're trying to find . The family also learns about their homes, and match them up appropriately. They’re usually given several dogs to settle on from. The families then meet the ‘candidates’ and pick the one that most accurately fits them. Despite being an option repeatedly for adopters, Summer was never chosen.

Then, miraculously, an application came in specifically for Summer. Eileen, the potential adopter, saw Summer on the Villalobos senior page, and knew instantly that Summer belonged together with her . The Torres family couldn’t await Eileen to return and meet the deserving dog.

At the middle , Summer slowly walks into room, her age obviously showing. But this doesn’t deter Eileen. She gets onto the ground , at Summer’s level, to say hi.

Summer’s tail begins to wag. It’s the sweetest thing to see! The Torres family is usually upfront and fair to all or any the adopters and explains that with Summer’s advanced age and health, they doubt she is going to make it a full year. Would this deter Eileen?


Eileen simply says: “She needs us.”

Eileen then explains that if she didn’t adopt Summer and located out she gave up the ghost while at the middle , never having the chance to be during a home, it might break her heart. subsequent step for Eileen was a no brainer .

Watch the video below to ascertain what happens next! And please remember, ALL dogs deserve a forever home. regardless of their age!
