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

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
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
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
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!!!!
known as Brownie)
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
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.
