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*** Bowser (now known as Jake) ***Adopted
Bowser, aka Jake, is now adopted and settled with
his new family. Jake is the gorgeous
Mastiff mix pup we got a month ago and here he is with one of his new
owners. He gets to go to work every
day with his person Dad and go home to his human brother! All reports so far tell us that everyone
loves him and he is one happy puppy!!
Bowser is a 12 week old, male,
Mastiff mix. He is up to date on all
of his shots and the sweetest little boy.
This gorgeous, 14 pound, puppy just showed up on someone's porch in
the country and stayed. They have
four cats and no fence and being old friends of SCARS, gave us a call. I love cuddling fluffy puppies! Bowser is quiet and a bit shy right now,
but he started playing and wagging his tail today so he will make someone a
fabulous pet. Bowser is still too young to be neutered, but we will have it
done as soon as he is old enough.
and Kringle ***Adopted
Bandit and Kringle
were adopted together!!! We really
lucked out when a friend of Terry's and her husband decided to pick out TWO
of our dogs to adopt. That is a dream come true!!
They came over and it was like "going shopping!" The two that really touched them were Kringle and Bandit and they went off together like
brothers. So far it is reported that
they are lap dogs and doing great. I
know these little guys will be spoiled rotten and since the new mom works
at Terry's office, they will get to come to work and visit so we can have
updates on their progress!
Bandit is about 20 lbs and, we
believe, a Shiba Inu
mix. He is about 2 years old,
neutered, has had all his shots, and probably not quite housebroken
yet. Because we have limited
information on him, this description may change a bit. Bandit arrived one bright morning at a
house in the country and he just settled in. However, they do have other pets and had
not planned on keeping him. He sits
on command and loves kids. He is very gentle and sweet and will make some
family a wonderful pet
couple who rescued these two pups have decided to
keep Midnight. He is one of 3 pups
starved almost to death. We are glad they are keeping him with his litter
mate - they really need each other. SCARS has paid their vet bill so far, but she is a
friend and employee, and we are glad to help. They should very happy in their new home.
Midnight is a
male, 3 1/2 month old, purebred, black German Shepherd. He is up to date on shots and has been
our million dollar dog!
Midnight and his brother and sister were starvation cases and
sadly, the sister did not make it.
However, after lots of vet treatment he and his brother are
thriving. He is really sweet and
gentle and gaining weight like a trooper. In the picture with the two of
them, he is the one in the back. His
owner was a breeder and we will say no more on that subject!!
Adopted*** Betsy ***Adopted
been adopted! Click here to see her story.
Betsy is a 10 month old, female,
Border Collie mix. She is crate
trained, spayed, and up to date on her shots. Betsy's owner lost her house and had to
move out of town and could not take her with the family. She has a gentle temperament, is a little
shy at first and does not seem to be hyper like some border collies. She is not very good with small dogs, but
does well with dogs her size or larger.
Since she only weighs 30 lbs, she is a dainty little dog who will
make a great family companion.
Adopted*** Barney ***Adopted
When I opened my email two months
ago and saw Barney's adorable face, I knew I would have to cave in and
take him into the SCARS program. He had
arrived as a stray at a vet's office some 50 miles from here. Terry
and I drove halfway and he was unloaded from a volunteer's truck and into
our doggie van. He rode quietly all the way home with his rubber toy
snuggled beside him. As time went on, we were amazed at his quiet
disposition - an anomaly for a lab puppy.
He never whined or barked and slid gracefully into the daily
activities of the pack. And yet, no
applications?? It was a
mystery. Soon we went to Colorado
for a much needed 3 day vacation and a dear friend doggie-sat for him. She had the wisdom to invite a friend
over who was quite taken with Barney, went home and returned with his wife
and daughter in tow. Barney is now
safely housed in their home and has a canine brother, Winston, a white
fluffy little foo-foo dog as a brother and his
very own people family. His dad is a
jogger and this will be perfect for his exercise as the weather begins to
cool down (soon we hope!) So far all
reports are positive and we will hope for continued good news.
Barney is now 5 months
old and doing fine. Here is a new
is a 4 month old, male, Labrador Retriever mix. He is neutered, up to date on shots, and weighs
lbs. He has a gentle disposition and
seems playful and healthy. Barney
came all the way from Girard, KS, the last of a litter from a momma dog
found as a stray. The vet clinic
found SCARS on the internet and we decided to bring him into the fold!!
Adopted*** Jay ***Adopted
When I first saw Jay, he was
languishing in a high kill shelter on death row. I had responded to a plea to take a boxer
who was also out of time and although I rarely enter these places, this time
I decided to make an exception. As I
walked the boxer to the door, I inadvertently glanced to my right (strictly
verboten) and saw Jay. His look of
resignation changed suddenly and he wagged his tail in hopeful
expectancy. I continued walking and
got in my car with my latest charge, and went home. However, his
adorable face haunted me all that night and by the next morning I was back in the car,
cursing my weakness, and heading again for the pound. Later, with Jay in
tow, I drove to a friend's house who is one of our
licensed fosters, and she took him in.
We had him fixed, got his shots and proceeded to put him on our
website. It seemed no one wanted
this guy. My friend kept him for 6 months but in truth, he was "too
much" for her and her small children. Luck was on our side...and
his. She had to be out of town and one of her friends came to dog sit
and instantly liked Jay. She made a
deal with Jay. If he would teach her
dog to go up the stairs on his own so she would not have to carry him, Jay
could stay. We waited with baited breath for the verdict. The call
came.....her dog and Jay were bounding up ad down the stairs together! It appears Jay is home...at last.
Jay is a boxer /lab mix around a year
old. He is neutered, up to date on shots and weighs around 45 lbs. Jay has lots of puppy energy and although
he is housebroken, he needs lots of outside time. He is great with young kids, small dogs,
cats, and so-so with birds! Jay sits
on command - it just takes a few minutes to work!! He will be fun addition to any
family. Jay was out of time at
a local shelter and SCARS decided to give him a chance to find just the
right home. We continue to learn
more about him every day!
Adopted*** Kansas ***Adopted
This note was provided by Kansas’ foster
I believe we have found a new home for Kansas.
My son lost his 16-year-old hearing dog a few months back.
He and my daughter in law kept coming out to the farm and visiting while we
were putting in the garden. They
really like our old Aussie but he is just too "old." They said they couldn't go through
another doggy funeral for a while.
So last weekend when Brian was out fishing he picked Kansas up and took
her home with him. She has taken her spot in the family. She has an overstuffed chair of her own
and a bed in their bedroom. She has a yard with a six-foot fence (except
she has proven she can go over that).
Brian is working on training her only to jump when they want her to
and that seems to be working as long as they are watching.
He would like her to catch a Frisbee but that hasn't
happened as yet. Kansas however believes she must have
gone to heaven as she looks pretty comfortable in the photos they've sent
us. Their schedules put one of them home except for a couple of hours each
day and she will be in a crate for that time. And since she had been raised as a crated
dog she is comfortable with that.
"Kansas" is a 3
year old Cattle Dog. She is spayed, up to date on shots, housebroken and
weighs about 25 lbs. She is full of
energy, loves kids and other dogs but not cats!! She can catch a Frisbee
and, if alone, will not run off. Kansas does not chew
or do anything destructive in the house. Dont you
love the pink nose and one blue eye???
