(February to April)
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 2012.

Adopted*** Buddy ***Adopted
Buddy has gone to a wonderful home and you can see him comfy on
his own couch! Buddy did see a crime
against his sibling and has had some emotional problems. In addition it has taken time for him to
gain weight and recover from some health problems. He is now in the hands
of a wonderful young woman whom I have found out was one of my former high
school students!! Woohoo!!
Adopted*** Ella ***Adopted
Ella is blind
but it sure hasn't slowed her down.
Our search for the perfect home has finally ended. She is with a wonderful family who
understands her and her new human sister has bonded with her. She was the only dog who did not see the
crime against her siblings and thus has not had the emotional problems of
the other two pups. We thank the
kind people who filled out applications for her and have restored our faith
that there are loving and compassionate people in our world.
Ella is a 6 month old, 30 lb., female Australian Shepherd. She is spayed, almost housebroken and up
to date on shots. Ella was born
blind but don't let this fool you....she is smart as a whip. She knows how to get around well and
follows other dogs. Her foster
siblings are wearing a bell so she knows where they are. She wags her tail nonstop. Ella came from a sad situation and is
ready for a home who will cherish her for the
precious dog she is.
and Kim ***Adopted
(now known as Bella and Macey)
Kim and Shelly
are now Bella and Macey. They have gone off TOGETHER to their new
home and things are going great.
They are busy kissing their 2 year old "sister" and have
lots of human relatives to entertain them.
After being given away from a box, I would say their luck has truly
Shelly and Kim
are two adorable, female Shih Tzu/Poodle mix. They are 8 weeks old, just had their
first shots and will be spayed at 15 weeks. After that, they can be adopted
but you can fill out an application now if you are interested. One is more
outgoing than the other, but both are playful and love to be on your lap.
They weigh in at 5 lbs each at this point!!
Adopted*** Dixie (now known as Sugar) ***Adopted
Taffy, aka Sugar, is one lucky little dog.
She showed up as a stray in Topeka and the woman called me for
help. I was leaving for DC to visit
my family so she hung on to her until I got back. When I returned I decided she was way too
timid for our gang of 50 brutes and a friend said she would foster
her. Lo and behold, a perfect home
opened for her, she was adopted, and the first day there, she panicked and
ran out the door. All of her
previous moms (and I) rallied to the cause.
She was hiding in the woods and finally came out and is now under
house arrest. Here she is with all
of her moms...first, second and hopefully, last!
Dixie is a one year old, female, Australian Shepherd mix. She
is now spayed, up to date on shots, and weighs 40 lbs. Dixie is very shy and nervous around
people until she gets to know you and then she warms up quickly. Like most rescue dogs, Dixie will need a
home with a lot of patience. She is getting slowly housebroken also. Dixie
arrived at a house in Topeka, skinny and scared, and has never been
claimed. In time she is going to be a great little friend.
Adopted*** Jadie ***Adopted
Jadie was found beat
up and scarred. SCARS took her in
and got her spayed and all of her shots.
The vet found that something like a rubber band had been tied around
her tail and part of it had to be amputated. A good friend of SCARS has adopted her
and is giving her a wonderful home.
We are so happy for this little gal who has two SCARS's brothers!!
Adopted*** Spot ***Adopted
I am sorry we have been unable to get a picture of Spot in his
new family.He was adopted networking through our
wonderful website and the original owner is so grateful for our help.Spot is happy in his new home and has another dog
to play with. Because he is far from Topeka, in another part of Kansas, I
am unable to drive there myself to take a picture! Thanks all who helped
make his adoption possible.
Spot is a 6
month old, male, blue heeler mix pup who is now neutered and up to date on
shots. He weighs around 40 lbs and has a great disposition. Spot's family lives in the country and he
keeps visiting the neighbors, but they do not appreciate his company. Spot really needs a fenced in yard and a
family of his own!
Adopted*** Ethel (now known as Zoey)
Ethel is now Zoey! Since
Ethel's dad was a purebred English Bulldog, her new parents loved that
because their other dog is Marley, an English Bulldog. Both dogs are now fast friends and Marley
has learned to share the spotlight.
Here are some great pictures!!
Adopted*** Lucy ***Adopted
Lucy has gone off to her new home too!! She has a big brother who is an 80 lb Mastiff mix named Merlin. He’s been used to being the only child
and now he is sharing and doing a great job. However, he does not appreciate the fact
that Lucy steals his toys and runs off with them! She is almost housebroken and doesn't
live too far from us, so we can go visit.
I will send pics to add to this collection
if we can figure out how to download them from my phone! By the way, Lucy
is wearing a collar with a picture of Lucille Ball...her namesake!!
Ethel and Lucy
are two female, 14 week old, brindle pups! Mom is an 80 lb
boxer/mastiff mix and dad is a registered 30 lb
English bulldog. They might not get
to be too big since Dad is a bulldog.
They only weigh 10 lbs at this point and
have had their shots and been spayed.
They are working on potty training and coming along nicely. Ethel is the plumper of the two and Lucy
appears to be the runt of the litter.
These pups get along great with all other dogs and, of course, love
Adopted*** Jackson ***Adopted
Jackson was one
of a litter of four...only three survived as one died a victim of severe
brutality. His litter mate is Ella,
a blind Australian Shepherd (see “Adopt Me”). I drove 40 miles one winter night in
strong wind and snow to get him and his two siblings out of their
yard. The owners had no money for
them and were terrified the unknown abuser would hurt the other pups. A good friend of ours fostered him and
has now decided to keep him. She has
calmed him down and shown him he is now safe. It was rough going for a few
weeks but he is now home.
