Adopted*** Samson ***Adopted
has gone to a new home with a big, fenced yard. He is finally able to get the love and
exercise he deserves. His new owner
is a runner so he gets to run with him and play and the yard. Samson’s new Dad comes home for lunch,
too, and the great thing is, he always wanted a husky, and now he has
one. We all agree Samson is the
"prettiest boy" we have ever seen!!!
Samson is a year and a half
old, male, purebred Siberian Husky.
He has one blue eye and one brown. Samson weighs approximately 70
lbs, is neutered, heartworm negative, and up to date on shots. He has lots of energy and needs a home
where he can be exercised regularly as he has been confined in a small area
for too long. He cannot be around
cats, but is great with kids and other dogs.
Adopted*** Dude ***Adopted
has gone off to this new family.
They have had Cockers before and just love that breed. When they met
Dude, they fell in love. The good news
is the Mom works days and Dad works nights so the puppy won’t ever be
alone. He is the last of the five
(three pictured below) to find a forever home.
Adopted*** Belle and Boss ***Adopted
Belle, the blonde cocker spaniel
has gone off to her new home. All reports are she is doing great. Her new owner comes into town to visit
one of SCARS' foster homes so we get to hear reports on her quite often.
Belle is a blonde bombshell, isn’t she?
We are really happy she has a good home.
has settled nicely in his new home in Missouri. He is already potty trained, too!! He has the run of the house and two
children to play with. The family
drove straight from the airport on their way home from a vacation to pick
him up. He is really a cutie pie and
a lucky dog!!
These purebred, Cocker Spaniel
pups are 13 weeks old. They have
been wormed and given their puppy shots.
They will be neutered at about 4 months old. All are crate trained, lively, and just
about the cutest things you have ever seen.
We’re sure they will be adopted quickly, so contact us ASAP if you
Adopted*** Amber (now known as Duchess) ***Adopted
Okay SCARS readers, here is a tear-jerker
for you. The owner of Amber/Duchess brought her to us in a truck and said
he was living in a garage and could no longer keep her. He was crying but
knew he was out of options. A friend offered to foster her and her 9 year
old pal, and they kept her for several months. She has been adopted and now
has a canine brother to play with and kids to sleep with. When I checked
with the new owner, she had slept in his daughter’s bed and was happy to be
home. We are hoping members of the original family will take in the 9 year
old lab soon. Here is a letter we
recently received from Duchess’ new owner:
“Just wanted to let you know that
Duchess is doing great and has adapted well! She was a little slow to
trust the new home and her new playmate Jackson who is also a Lab/German
Shorthair mix. To start with she didn't want to leave my side and slept as
close as she could next to me at night.
It has now been a week and I have to stop her and Jackson from wrestling in the house, they
also love playing tug of war with a rope toy. Your ad said she was house broken and she
was good with other dogs and good natured.
Well she is all that and more - WE just LOVE HER to death. She is a really sweet dog and we wouldn't
trade her for the World!!! I am going to send you some pictures of
Duchess and Jackson playing as soon as I can get my son to send them - I
don't know how to. Any way I just want to let you know she is doing
GREAT and we really appreciate all you and your staff have done to help us
with this process. For anyone else
reading this, please forget about getting a dog with papers and get one of
these dogs that have lost their home, their family and playmates. The best dogs I have owned have been
stray dogs that just want to have a home to go to and someone to show them
love and attention. Also, remember
if you get a dog from this shelter or most any other shelter they will let
you return the dog or cat if it just doesn't fit in with your family. If you buy one from a puppy mill you most
likely will not be able to return it! Again thanks so much for
all you and you staff have done for us and for saving Duchess!!! That
is the main thing she was given a second chance and now is a happy fun
loving dog that make me and my family extremely happy. -Doug from El Dorado KS.
P.S. if anyone has any questions please feel
free to contact me, the shelter can give you my email address. Love you
Amber is a female, three year
old, Labrador Retriever mix. She is spayed, housebroken, and up to date on shots. Unfortunately her owner has lost his home
and they have nowhere to keep her. Amber gets along with other dogs and
people young and old.
Adopted*** Snickers ***Adopted
Snickers is the first of the Cocker
Spaniel pups to go off to his new home.
He was snatched up so fast, he didn't even make it to the “Adopt Me”
page. The owner has a 4 year
old Cocker and has been looking for a playmate. We all agree that these are gorgeous pups
and Snickers has such unusual coloring...caramel, black and white. All is well and he is doing just fine!!
when we never thought the right home would come along for Cocoa, here comes the perfect
family. They had a Cocker Spaniel
years ago and, one day, wanted another.
They said they would know when the perfect dog was ready. Then their son saw Cocoa on our website. When we got the call about Cocoa, we all knew
this was the perfect family and he knows it too. Cocoa
is safe and sound in his new home with people all around who love him. He is getting over his shyness and we
just know he will live happily ever after!!!
We seem to be having trouble
getting a good picture of Cocoa
- the blurry picture below is not very good. Here is a new one. Cocoa is not big, but
looks it. He weighs about 30 lbs.,
is up to date on shots, and is now neutered. He is almost housebroken, very shy at
first and gentle. Cocoa is good with other dogs and has no
bad habits except he needs lots of tender loving care so he can bond with
his new family.
Cocker Spaniel is almost a year old and almost housebroken! He is well socialized and up to date on
shots. Coca is very shy and needs
someone who will work with him so he will trust people. He is not agressive, just shy.
Adopted*** Jasper ***Adopted
has hit the jackpot!! He is settled
in his new home and spend his time both inside and outside. He has 5 fenced acres which is perfect
for an energetic lab. Jasper is
beginning training classes and will in training for 12 weeks. We expect him to come out perfectly
behaved. He has a great family to
love him and hope he lives happily ever after!!
is a male, 2 year old Labrador Retriever mix. He is neutered, up to date on shots, and
housebroken. Jasper is a family dog
and well behaved but not getting enough exercise where he lives. His family does not have time to get him
out and about as much as he needs and they feel he has to spend too much
time in a kennel. Jasper would be a
great farm dog but loves to be inside at night!
