Adopted*** Zippy  ***Adopted

 

This does not happen very often, but Zippy's owners surfaced after a week or so and came to take him home!  Apparently the kids had opened the door at home and out flew Zippy...not to be seen again except by the local police who took him to jail!!  He entertained us endlessly with his barking and flying around so fast that a blur was all we saw most of the time....4 lbs of energy. Zippy is now home again.  All is well that ends well.

Adopted*** Duke  ***Adopted

 

Duke is a beautiful purebred American Bulldog.  Duke's owner no longer had enough time to spend with him and asked if we could find him a home.  A wonderful family has adopted Duke who also has a Lhasa Apso brother named Woody.  As you can see from the picture, they are two peas in a pod. Duke is reportedly gentle with Woody and doing great in his new home!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Duke is a male, 2 year old, registered (papers available) American Bulldog.  He is about 90 lbs, neutered, up to date on shots – but we’re not sure yet if housebroken.  Despite his intimidating size, he is a lover.  He gets along well with other dogs and kids.  Duke's owner feels he is lonely and needs much more attention than she is able to give at this time. If you know anything about American Bulldogs, you know what fabulous pets they are.....great for families and protective.

Adopted*** Abby  ***Adopted

 

After breaking all records for adoption applications, Abby has found a new home!  She has three companion dogs to play with and a family of three grown boys who can give her the love and exercise she needs.  When dogs come from our shelter, they need lots of exercise and fun to follow up what goes on here! Rarely do we get a dog who works out as an only dog, but it does happen.  Abby loves other dogs so we knew she needed canine friends.  We are so happy she is working out and as you can see in the picture, Abby is smiling!

 

 

Abby is a 5 month old purebred & registered, female, Siberian Husky.  Her owners could no longer keep her and asked if we would take her.  So far here is what we see....she shows no aggression at all with people or dogs, loves to swim in the pond, loves to run, hates to be caged up, can jump a 4 ft fence, and is extremely well behaved in the house. She is close to being housebroken, is spayed and up to date on shots, and weighs about 35 lbs. She is a real knockout.

Adopted*** Friday (now known as Frito Bandito)  ***Adopted

 

Remember Friday?  He was tied to our gate one cold Friday night in January.  He settled in here nicely, enjoying the pond and 50 acres -but the right home just never seemed to come along.  He had a bad habit of biting tires on tractors so that disqualified him for most farm homes.  However, luck was on his side.  A pretty vet student saw his picture and thought he was sweet and handsome, which he is, and wanted to take him home and spoil him.  So far, he sounds like he is behaving fairly well and not biting any tires....there aren't any around which helps.  His new name is going to be Frito Bandito and maybe he was a bandit in another life. Whatever the case, the last picture showed him sleeping on her bed so I am not worried about him at all.

 

 

We came home on night to find this dog tied to our gate - no note, nothing.  We named him Friday and he is a male, Australian Shepherd/ Blue Heeler mix.  He is neutered, up to date on his shots, and weighs about 40 lbs.  Friday is a great dog.  He has now lived with us for several weeks, and when he got over his grieving process he began playing with all of our dogs.  He appears to be housebroken and is very well behaved inside.  He does not seem to have any really bad habits and loves everyone.  I think he is going to make some family a wonderful companion!!!!

Adopted*** Betty Lou (now known as Brownie)  ***Adopted

 

Betty Lou is now Brownie. Brownie was heading for the pound because she was chasing the neighbor's cattle...not a good thing in the country. So, she came here and we discovered she could leap tall buildings..she jumped like a cat all over the house. Suddenly, she would be on the table. Well, she is now living as a city dog in KC in a townhouse!! Her owner runs her miles and miles every day and says Brownie is wearing her out! I think her new owner is now considering entering a marathon (seriously!!) because she is getting in such good shape.

 

 

Betty Lou needs more than a new pair of shoes (you young kids probably don't know that old song!), she needs a new home.  Betty Lou is around a year old, is spayed, and weighs about 35 lbs.  She may not be a glamour girl, but she has such a gentle loving personality that is makes up for everything else.  She has a bobbed tail and is great with kids.

Adopted*** Sport  ***Adopted

 

 

Sport has gone off to a wonderful home in the country! He has a pond to swim and lots of animal friends. He was found in the Walmart parking lot in Topeka, lost and scared and clearly abandoned. Sport has a really good now and is one happy puppy!!

 

 

 

 

Sport is a Norwegian Elkhound (mix??) and was abandoned in a parking lot.  Some friends of SCARS found him, and took him home.  He is now settling down and here is what we know about him.....he likes other dogs, likes kids, is more of a submissive dog but will stand up for himself if necessary.  He is now neutered and weighs 32 lbs. He likes to chase chickens so does not need to be around them!  Sport is a beautiful, gentle dog....he is going to make some family very happy.

Adopted*** Bailey (now known as Ozzie)  ***Adopted

 

Bailey was just too strong for her owners and their little girl kept getting knocked flat!  We knew she needed a STRONG guy and we found one … or he found us.  Her new owner is a personal trainer, lives in the country and this is a match made in heaven.  The two of them are doing great and once the owners found a home for Bailey, they adopted our two pups...Kim and Shelly! (Bailey is now Ozzie!)

 

 

 

Bailey is a 4 year old, spayed and housebroken, female mix of some type. She loves kids and other dogs and weighs about 60 lbs.  Our best guess is lab/hound dog...what do you think?  Bailey is too rough for the 2 year old who she lives with but her family is committed to waiting until we can help them find her a good home.  We do not recommend that she go to a family with small children as she is too rambunctious.  However, for strong adults who can give her plenty of exercise, she is a doll.
