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 2010.

Adopted*** Maggie (now known as Chloe) ***Adopted
Maggie is now Chloe and doing great!
She has two doggie pals and few random pets as friends. She is eating dry food (would not do that
here) and feeling much better than when she was found on a gravel road,
matted and thin. Here she is with her mom and her human brother....isn't
she a fashionista??
Maggie is a ten month old, female long haired, Chihuahua. She is spayed and weighs 6 lbs. She was found running down a dirt road,
matted and filthy. All efforts to
find her home have failed. She is now
all fixed up and well on her way to being housebroken (but not quite there
yet). She is so sweet and
adorable...wants to be held in your lap all day. Maggie wags her tail
nonstop and loves everyone. Isn't
Adopted*** Ginger (now known as Jasmine) ***Adopted
known as Ginger) is doing great! She
has adjusted very quickly to her new home and surroundings. She loves going for walks in the
neighborhood and meeting new friends at the bark park. There isn’t a dog or
person she meets that she doesn’t connect with.
Ginger is a purebred, female, Pit Bull. She is 10 months old, spayed and up to
date on shots. She weighs 50 lbs and
is gentle with other dogs and children. Her mother is a purebred
"blue" and just as gorgeous.
This dog is really special.....you can see how gentle she is. I don't know how anyone could resist
falling in love with her.
Adopted*** Ranger (now known as Rho) ***Adopted
Ranger turned out to be a
popular dog! We sure got a lot of
phone calls about him but we believe we found him the right home. Ranger has been adopted by a graduate
student who has trained German Shepherds in the past. He understands the breed and will not
only teach him commands, but treat him kindly as a companion pet. His new owner knows Ranger is part fish
and plans lots of trips to the pond where he can swim. Ranger is getting along well with his
canine companions and settling in his new digs. By the way, his new name is Rho and
apparently he is already responding to it! Oh...and grandpa is a
veterinarian so he will be in good hands.
Ranger is a gorgeous 8 month old
purebred German Shepherd. His
coloring is probably considered a sable or silver tipped. I am told by a GSD expert that his
coloring is rare and desirable.
Ranger was found running down a busy highway, thin and flea infested. He has now been neutered, is up to date
on shots and not yet housebroken (but working on it). He gets along with dogs and people and is
loving and playful. Ranger runs like the wind behind the gator on our 50
acres...he is tireless. With some
training he is going to be a remarkable and beautiful companion.
Adopted*** Bernie ***Adopted
From Bernie’s new Mom: “Bernie is doing fantastic. He plays
with both Sam & Dave. They all hang out together in the yard, chasing
squirrels & birds. Mostly barking at squirrels in trees. They keep busy.
He's made himself right at home. We have to avoid the chase scene as they
all run through the house!”
Bernie is an absolutely adorable 6 lb, male, Chihuahua mix. He is neutered, up to date on shots and
almost totally housebroken...not yet completely there. Bernie was rescued when his owner was put
in jail and he was abandoned. He was
adopted out and his family has decided they do not have time for him ... no
fault of his. He really is so
precious...he will bring much joy to the family who gives him a PERMANENT
Adopted*** Anna ***Adopted
Remember one of our two starvation case husky pups? Well, now he has a sister! Anna has finally found her forever home
with Charlie's owners. Anna was
always such a free spirit and roamed our 50 acres at will...we usually
found her at the pond or chasing some small critter. She has apparently decided to be a city
slicker! She wears a halter and
obeys commands. She looks gorgeous
and she and Charlie are clearly soulmates. In fact, while we dogsat
for Charlie when his parents went on vacation, she picked him as her
favorite and waited for him outside the gate. Who says animals don't have souls??
Anna who came to SCARS many months ago is no longer the same dog!! She has
settled down and "grown up." Anna has decided she loves being in
the house with everyone. She is
still playful, but not hyper at all.
Anna loves everyone...kids and all other dogs. In addition, she is so loving and
beautiful. We know she would just be
such a fabulous companion for some lucky family.
Anna is a 2 year old Australian
Shepherd/Burmese Mountain Dog mix of some sort. She is spayed, up to date on shots,
heartworm negative, around 60-70 lbs and housebroken – or so it
appears. Anna is a rambunctious and
energetic soul (although very well behaved in the house) with lots of
love to give. She has spent
much of her life on a chain which accounts for her exuberance. Hopefully, the run of 50 acres will work
its magic on her as it has on so many others. She gets along fine with other dogs and
with kids ... if they are not too little or don’t mind getting knocked
over. Anna has beautiful markings
and, by the way, she can catch a Frisbee!!
Adopted*** Dexter ***Adopted
Dexter hit the jackpot when I asked a fellow teacher to foster him
since we are so full! The upshot was
she has decided to make him a permanent member of her family. When he was invited to go on the library
tour for a week to show him off to potential adopters, I got suspicious
when she turned pale and mumbled "well, ok." Now he is settled in with her and her
other dogs and I must say he is a real cutie pie. Who could resist that face?
Dexter is an 8 month old Terrier
mix of some kind. He looks like he
has Beagle in him, but exhibits none of the characteristics normally associated
with Beagles...he does not have the bark, does not wander to
"chase" things, does not act like a Beagle in any way. He has
some Dachshund characteristics...mainly physical as his head appears to be
much like one. He is a fabulous
dog. He weighs 17 lbs and is
neutered and housebroken. Dex loves people and other dogs and plays nicely with
them. He has a winning personality, must sleep on your bed and be adored,
and will make a great companion!
Adopted*** Maki ***Adopted
Maki has gone to his new home!! He has a cocker spaniel, Sadie, as a
sister and she has not decided if he is acceptable
or not. However, mom and dad love him and he is getting spoiled rotten. His
behavior is great...he disappeared the other night and after a frantic
search, he was found snoozing in his own bed. They even liked his
"plucked chicken " look after his
shaving/grooming!! I think it was his big brown eyes that did it!
Maki is a one year old, male, purebred Maltese who needs a home. His owner had a change in her life and
cannot keep him. He weighs 6 lbs and
is neutered and we are working on his housebreaking
skills. Maki was severely matted and
had to be shaved (see him before his haircut on the left) hence his naked
look!! He is loving and sweet - loves everyone and
has to sleep in bed with you at night!
He is really a doll!
