(January to March)
Here are the original stories and adoption
information about those dogs who came to us as a result of abuse or
abandonment, and have been placed in permanent homes during 2015.

Adopted*** Rhonda (now known as Alix) ***Adopted
Rhonda is now Alix and her canine
sister is KC....named after the Royals!!
The news from the front is all good.
They play together and love chasing the neighbor dog up and down the
fence. They sleep on the bed with
their new mom, and grandparents are next door, available to dogsit.
Wow....we are so darn happy here!
Rhonda is a one year old, female Basenji mix. She weighs about 40 lbs
and is housebroken and spayed. Rhonda is good with kids and great with
other dogs. She does not like to be
left alone all day in the house when her people are at work, so she needs a
friend. Preferably, she would do
well with a family who is around often during the day. Rhonda’s coat is a gorgeous red color
with a curly tail. She was "out of time" in a neighboring county
so we took her in and are so glad we did!!
Adopted*** Emmy ***Adopted
Emmy showed up
in our driveway with the owners. She had been turned down by a local shelter and
forced to leave her home because she did not get along with her German
Shepherd brothers. However, she
loved everyone here and got along great with 40+ dogs, so we’re not sure
what that was about. Emmy had
nowhere to go, so we took her in and are so glad we did. She became my favorite photo shoot gal
because of her adorable, perked ears. The perfect family from KC came along
and she is doing great!!
Emmy is a three year old, female, Corgi/Shepherd mix weighing
about 35 lbs. Emmy came from a home with four children and two large
dogs. They were not able to keep her
so here she is at SCARS. Emmy is
housebroken (I am told!) and soon to be spayed. She is a real sweetie and loves cuddling
at night in bed. Emmy is cute and
she knows it....she will make a great companion!
Adopted*** Shadow ***Adopted
Shadow has gone off to Wichita to his new home on 60
acres! He has a chocolate lab
sister named Daisy and two parents to take good care of him. Shadow is such a wonderful dog and we are
thrilled this family chose him. So
far, all of the news is good...good....good!!
Shadow is a one
year old, male, black Lab/Patterdale terrier
mix. He is housebroken and neutered
and weighs about 40 lbs. Shadow will
always be small, but he has lots of energy and has lived with cats, other
dogs and small children. He loves to
play catch and will carry his toy around all day! Shadow needs an active family and one who
is not gone all day. He has wonderful, fun disposition and will be a
great addition to any
He is the perfect dog. He’s housebroken, well behaved,
neutered, only 35 lbs and loves everyone! Shadow plays and plays, but when he is
done, he curls up on the bed and we never hear a peep out of him!
Adopted*** Blaze (now known as Koda) ***Adopted
Blaze has been
formally adopted and is now Koda!! He has two teenagers to play with and
love, two cats to tolerate, a fellow canine, and a loving mom. Koda also has a
big yard and lots of squirrels to chase and birds to shoo away. We were worried he would never find the
right home, but luck is on his side and it appears he is now a permanent
member of this wonderful family.
Blaze is a 7 month old, male, Retriever/Lab mix. He is neutered, up to date on shots, and
the jury is still out on whether he is housebroken or not. His owner
called us and asked us to take him because he is "too puppy" and
he wasn't going to spend another dime on him. They couldn't get rid of him fast enough,
and when he went to our foster, it was if he had never seen the
world! He was hesitant to even get
in a car or go through a door, but now he has mastered both skills! He loves other dogs and does not bother
cats! We think he is darling
puppy and will make
someone a great companion who wants a dog and not a pet rock!
Adopted*** Chico ***Adopted
Chico has had
quite a time finding a place to call his own. His original owner called and was going
off to college and could not keep him.
He went to a couple who was looking for a dog as a playmate for
their dog. He stayed there a week, snapped
at the cat and was asked to leave.
In the meantime, we contacted another family looking for a
companion and although he was a bit smaller than they anticipated, so far,
so good. Chico can be seen looking
at his new world and his owner has requested he be left out of the
picture due to his casual apparel.
Adopted*** Jimmy ***Adopted
Jimmy was a surprise Christmas present for a little boy! We
kept our fingers crossed as mom took him and hid him til
Christmas morning with a big red bow!
Jimmy loves his very own little boy and is doing great. He had so much energy here, but
apparently he has turned into a good, calm house dog. Such a
great Christmas present!
Jimmy is an
American Bulldog mix of some kind!
We even see a touch of Great Dane in him, but suspect he has many
different breeds all rolled into one beautiful dog. He weighs about 60 lbs
and is sleek and active, neutered and up to date on shots. Jimmy has absolutely no aggression with
dogs, people or cats. He was in a
shelter in a neighboring state and going nowhere. As a result of prolonged confinement, he
has a lot of energy to expend. Jimmy
loves racing around our 50 acres and will soon settle down!
Adopted*** Tony and Ziva ***Adopted
Tony and Ziva are now living happily in Wisconsin!! Their parents thought they only wanted
one but a family member said "Come on, Dad, they are a bonded
pair!!" So this wonderful
couple drove ten hours and met me in Kansas City and I took this
picture. It is not great and they
keep promising me more. There
latest reports are that they love the snow and also watch squirrels
and wildlife carefully through the sliding door. I am waiting for the pictures...can't
wait to see them!!
Tony and Ziva are two miniature
Australian Shepherds. They weigh
about 12 lbs, although Anthony is overweight at
this time. They are both fixed and
housebroken. Tony is 5 years old and
Cleo is 3 years old. We would love
for them to be adopted together, but will not hold out for it. They are very quiet, rarely make a sound,
and loving and gentle. Through a
variety of unforeseen circumstances, they have found themselves in need of
Adopted*** Christmas Pups ***Adopted
have all gone off to wonderful homes!
The two girls went with young women who have families with other
dogs for them to play with. The boys all went to homes with other
dogs and children! So far the news
is that all of them are doing great.
We are so happy Destiny took such good care of her babies until they
were rescued and continued to care for them once they came to SCARS!
There are now
three of us left!! We are gorgeous,
but no one can figure out our breed. We might have some Husky, maybe
Shepherd, who knows BUT we have great dispositions and a beautiful
mother. Mom is not telling who our
dad was, so he could have just been about any breed. We are guessing he
maybe large, or extra large, since we are 16
weeks old and weigh 20 lbs. We are
all "fixed" and had our puppy shots and our holiday wish is to
have our very own family for Christmas!
This is Mama Destiny, the pup’s mother. She won’t be available until the pups are
all adopted and she has been spayed
