Adopted*** Bubba (now known as Bear) ***Adopted

 

Things were not looking good for Bubba.  His owner was elderly and could no longer care for him.  He had to go.  However, Bubba is starting to get up in years and we were very, very full.  I suddenly remembered a friend who loves Blue Heelers.  She is a nurse and likes a project, and since Bubba is a tad overweight, this will be a project for sure.  I even called her while on vacation and she starting planning for grooming, obedience classes, exercise and a low cal diet!  He is now BEAR and you can see the happiness in his face with his new little girl!!

Adopted*** Marco ***Adopted

 

When Marco's owner passed away, his wife felt she was unable to care for Marco properly.  SCARS was asked to help find beautiful Marco a home.  We had earlier received an application on a dog who had been adopted, but I felt they would be interested in Marco and they were!!  We drove Marco to his new home in the country an hour from here, where he loved the wide open spaces, and he seemed to be disinterested in their cat (crucial for success!).  So far the news is good...Marco now has his own family again and can begin the healing process from losing his owner.

 

 

Marco is a 4 year old purebred, neutered, housebroken lab.  His owner recently passed away and he needs a new home soon.  Marco loves everyone!  He is truly the perfect dog for someone with time and love to give him.  He weighs around 60 lbs and is up to date on all shots.  He is also great with kids and other dogs.

Adopted*** Oliver ***Adopted

 

 

Thank you to my friend who passed the word about Oliver at her church!!  I got a call as a result of this shared information and took Oliver for a meet and greet that evening.  Their dog did fine with him, and Oliver visibly settled in and relaxed.  Our environment had been too stressful for him - too much activity!  I spoke with his new owner tonight and she said "We won't be returning Oliver!!"

 

 

 

Oliver is a 3 year old miniature poodle whose owner died and no one in the family will take him.  He is neutered and housebroken (although with all of his changes, he may need a refresher course).  Oliver weighs 12 lbs and is looking for a quiet, loving home where he can hang out and watch TV!  We do not recommend small children at this time as he tends to be nervous when he first meets people.  He is a sweetie and would make a great companion!

Adopted*** Dixie (now known as Hazel) ***Adopted

 

Dixie was found in an alley, she was covered in fleas and very thin.  A kind person rescued her and kept her until she got stronger and called SCARS.  One of our fosters took her in and found that she was friendly with everyone - dogs, cats and kids!  In addition, we all decided she was one of the cutest pups ever!

On our Bathe the Dogs Day one of our sponsors came to help, met Dixie and took her home!! Dixie is now Hazel (do you love the name!) and so far, all is well.

 

 

 

Dixie was found one night in an alley, skinny and covered in fleas.  No one in the neighborhood recognized her so some people took her in, but could not keep her.  They cleaned her up, took her to the vet to be treated for fleas and turned her in to SCARS.  It appears she is around 3-4 months old and weighs approximately 30 lbs, which will change, of course. Dixie is a mix breed, and here is what we are guessing.  Lab/mastiff/and something else really cute!!! We think she will be large....will keep everyone posted!

Adopted*** Lucky Girl ***Adopted

 

Lucky Girl has had a tough life until today.  Now she has her very own home with loving parents and three doggie friends!!  She is just a tiny bit bigger than the rest of them, but they do not seem to be intimidated as she is a playful, gentle soul.  We couldn’t be happier that friends of ours have adopted this precious terrier and we know she will be loved and cared for
now.

Adopted*** Louie ***Adopted

 

Last year Gizmo was adopted by a friend in Kansas City and he had a pit bull brother.  His brother recently died and Gizmo was lonely.  The adopter called us when she saw Louie's picture and drove to Topeka to meet him.  She just loved him - who wouldn't? - and took him home.  He and Gizmo are doing great and she said her face has never been cleaner. (Louie licks nonstop!!)

 

 

 

Louie is a gorgeous, male Pit Bull mix.  He has beautiful blue eyes and is about 2 years old.  Louie had neighbors who were prejudiced against Pit Bulls and his family felt he was not safe where he was.  Louie is the perfect dog.  He is housebroken, gentle, neutered , loves kids and other dogs, has never showed any aggression, and weighs about 45 lbs.   "Louie Bluey" is a big favorite here at SCARS!!!

Adopted*** Sasha ***Adopted

 

A wonderful couple drove all the way from Wichita to adopt one of our red lab pups.  BUT!!!! When they got here, they fell in love with the sweet little black female pup. She reminded them of the lab they now have when she was a puppy. Now they have two black labs, one is 7 years and one is 6 months! Her new name is Sasha and so far, the news is all good!

Adopted*** Zeus ***Adopted

 

Zeus has gone off to his new home with his beagle mix brother, Oreo!  His family loved his "eyes" on the website and drove quite a ways to meet him.  He and Oreo liked each other from the start and the latest report is they are now best buds!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Zeus was removed from his home by the sheriff in a neighboring county.  He is a 3 year old, male, Lab mix, who is now in foster with a wonderful SCARS family who has other dogs, a cat and a toddler!!  Zeus is great with all of them and almost totally housebroken.  He loves to play fetch and could spend hours in the water.  Zeus has gained a considerable amount of weight and now probably weighs about 60 lbs.  He is solid and muscular and in great health.  Like most labs, Zeus is the perfect family dog and is ready for his very own peeps!!!
