Adopted *** Venus ** Adopted
Venus is a gorgeous 3 year old Great Dane who lived not too far
from us. She lived with three other dogs, and
for some reason, began picking on the other female. It got out of hand and the owners
decided she would be happier at another home. They were not sure how to begin, so I
drove over there and took pictures of this gorgeous dog. Several apps came
in, but one seemed the best and he lived in Dodge City which is a 6 hr drive. Nevertheless, he got in his car the next day
and drove all the way here. The first meeting with his dog, Max, was shaky,
but Max kept his cool and Venus calmed down. Now they are fast friends and
rode off to Dodge City together!
Adopted *** EJ ** Adopted
I got a call one
day from a man who had found and "elderly Chihuahua" in his
yard and it was blind. He had to
keep it outside away from his five children and the weather would be cold
soon. I was on my way to Kansas
City with a dog, and called a friend to pick him up. She worked for us for a long time, and
called me saying the "elderly" dog was a 12 week old puppy and
blind. I took him to the vet who
said he was born without any eyes in the sockets, and therefore is
permanently blind. Bridget adores
him, has adopted him and carried EJ everywhere. What a blessing for them
Adopted *** Diane and Dottie ** Adopted
Dottie, aka Pumpkin and Oreo have had a tough life so far. Abandoned at a
gas station in a small town, they were homeless. An employee took them home but they had
to stay in the back yard. Then
another employee took them home, but she had no time for them. And...they came to SCARS!!
They were so scared and shaking all of the time. The along came
a wonderful couple who spent time with them and they came out of their
shells and were so happy! They have
gone off to their new home and we are incredibly grateful to the family who
is keeping them together!
Dottie and Diane
are two bonded females. They are around five years old, spayed weigh around
`12-15 lbs. and housebroken. Their
owner can no longer take care of them, and both girls are waiting for a new
home together. They are extremely quiet, hardly make a peep and have
absolutely no aggression. Hopefully
they will find a home soon so they can start their new life and still be
Adopted *** Rocky ** Adopted
We refer to Rocky as the death row dog. He was on Facebook with
two days left due to hyperactivity and overstimulation. I was tagged by many people about him, but
we were very full. We decided to go
ahead and give him a chance. Rocky
came here and was wound up but weeks of running in the fields and swimming
in the ponds calmed him down and gave him a chance to be a normal dog. In time, a nice couple came along and
they fell in love with him. He
played really well with their dog who is now his best buddy. He went off to his new home and we held
our breath! All reports are good...hurray for Rocky!
Rocky came to us from a city shelter where he was deemed
unadoptable due to being hyperactive.
However, once he came here and had the run of 50 acres, two ponds and
lots of friends, he started calming down.
After a month he is now adoptable! Rocky shows no aggression and gets along
well with both large and small dogs.
He seems to be housebroken, but no promises there. He weighs about 130 lbs
and adores the water. The perfect
home would have a pond where he could swim every day! He is neutered ,
heartworm negative and up to date on shots. You will love him!
Adopted *** Aspen and Argus ** Adopted
We received two
purebred Great Pyrenees pups and they were adopted before they even hit the
website! We had many great families
interested in them, but they went home with the perfect family who decided
to take them together. Their names are Aspen and Argus and they are
absolutely gorgeous. Hurray for this
wonderful family who has taken on the responsibility of two pups who are
going to be very, very large!!!
Adopted *** Sadie and Marley ** Adopted
Marley and Sadie were very sad when they came here. Their family had a new baby who was
allergic to them, and after being family pets, they
were homeless. One of our fosters took them in and gave them a lot of love and
attention. In time, they began to
relax and enjoy life...but they wanted their own family. Several people were interested, but did
not want two dogs, so they passed them by.
Finally the right couple came along and it was love at first
sight...both ways. The girls came
out of their shell and loved this couple.
Off they went and all reports are glowing!
Sadie and Marley are a bonded pair. They are some kind of wire-haired
Terrier, are both females, are two years old, 10 lbs each, spayed and housebroken. Sadie is very shy but Marley is more
outgoing. They will do best as only
dogs as they tend to be intimidated by other dogs. They are so sweet
and loving, and will make someone great companions.
Adopted *** Carmen ** Adopted
little pittie has a new home all of her
own!!!! The perfect couple came
along, fell in love with her and decided to make her a part of
their family. Her brother Baxter, a
pit mix, and a bit chubbier loves her too. She went from being hyperactive to a
normal, happy dog and we love this ending!
When we first met Carmen, I thought she was impersonating a
ballistic missile. She was in the
home of an older woman who had no way to exercise her, and no other dog for
her to play with. The end result was
disastrous. Carmen went to one of our fosters and played with her other dogs, ran in her
yard and has become a wonderful, normal dog. She is good with cats, small dogs, big
dogs and people and she is GORGEOUS!!
Carmen is a blue pit mix of 7 months, now spayed and up to date on
shots and weighs 40 lbs.
Adopted *** Stella ** Adopted
When Stella came to us she was thin, full of fleas and unspayed. SCARS
took care of all of her medical needs and her foster took wonderful care of
her so that she was able to go off to her new home! We love you and know you will have a
Stella is a one year, female, old St Bernard mix. She has one blue eye, but she sure looks like
she is 100% St Bernard! Stella weighs 100 lbs, is
spayed and housebroken. She is truly a gentle giant. Stella gets along great with kids, cats
and other dogs and has laid back disposition. I guess you could say she is perfect!!!
Adopted *** Delilah ** Adopted
Remember the picture of Delilah looking out the door and
waiting for her forever home? Well,
it came along!! She is now the proud
owner of a 2nd grade teacher and protects her fiercely against the
neighbor's attack Chihuahuas! We are
thrilled she has found her own family!
Delilah is a two year old American Bulldog. She is spayed, housebroken, good with other dogs and kids. Delilah weighs about 50lbs and loves to
run and play, but is definitely a people dog. She is well behaved in the house...so
far! She does have a piercing shriek
when a car or something with a motor zips by her. We are working on her not to chase our
Gator and today she did fine.
Delilah is a delightful dog and will make a super companion.
Adopted *** Chiweenies ** Adopted
ago a group in Topeka rescued 125 puppies from a high kill shelter in
Texas. SCARS took six and all have
been adopted! Today all of our
adorable Chiweenies went off to their new homes. We love all of the new families and thank
them for being the winners in the contest of who will be best for these
Dallas, Austin, Laredo and Garland are 14 week old Chiweenies
(Chihuahua/Dachshund mix). Two are
females and two are males. Garland
is spoken for, but the other three adorable pups will be up for adoption in
about one week when all are spayed or neutered. They are so much fun and very
playful. They are not afraid of big
dogs, and are in great health. If
you want something adorable to love, these are for you!
Adopted *** Kylo ** Adopted
Kylo was very sad
when we met him. He had made the
mistake of licking the face of his owner's girlfriend, and was banished to
a crate. When he was turned over to
us, he did not ever want to be crated again! He slowly came out of his
shell and discovered life was good and there were kind people out there who
didn't mind if he acted like a dog.
A wonderful young woman came along, loved him and off he has gone to
his new home. We all feel super good
about this and know he will be loved and have a happy life!
Kylo is a
three year old, 18 lb, male, Spaniel mix.
The vet is calling him a Cocker Spaniel mix, but he also looks like a small
retriever. He is neutered, up to
date on shots, and very loving. He
gets along great with kids, cats and other dogs. Kylo loves
attention and not only does he not want to be
kenneled, he doesn't need to be.
While his owners are gone, he spends his days under the couch! Kylo is really
the perfect size and personality for a great companion.
Adopted *** Mindy and Mandy ** Adopted
Mindy and Mandy went off to their new home
together! Their family is looking
forward to hiking trips with them when they are old enough to walk alone,
but might have to be carried back if they don't grow a bit bigger, which
they will, of course.
They are still adorable fluff ball babies and we look forward
to updates from the parents!
and Mandy are two purebred Australian Shepherd puppies. They are nine weeks old, spayed and
up to date on puppy shots. One is a tri
color and one is black and white. The black and white one is the runt but
most miniature Aussies grow to be around 20 -25 pounds as adults. They are soft fluff balls and totally
Adopted *** Buffy ** Adopted
Buffy was so
thin when I first saw her. She had
gotten used to not eating, and she had no appetite. She had only been given dry, apparently
tasteless dog food and was banished to a garage after the "new
baby" arrived. I believe she
was so lonely and scared she could not eat.
One of her kind relatives called us, and when I saw her I knew I had
to help. And so she came to SCARS.
She refused to eat the first day or two, would
not even touch canned dog food. So I
called my vet and sent him her picture and he said, give her lots of
carbohydrates and get them in her any way you can. So I began shopping daily at our good ole
Dollar Store. I bought so much
canned food, I think they thought I had ten kids. I bought canned chicken, pot pies,
chicken nuggets, and the list goes on and on. Her favorite was Dinty Moore chicken and
dumplings. I fed her four and five
times a day and she started caring about food. She would look at us when we were eating,
and we handed over our food too. I
was determined to win. I can be very
stubborn and OCD when I have to, and I had to with this gal. Two weeks went by and I could not really
see an improvement, but she did start playing with the other dogs and
coming to the pond. After three
weeks I took her back to the vet and she had gained TWENTY pounds!!!!
Then the applications started trickling
in. I was amazed at how many people
love Great Danes, and this dog is the best.
She never has an accident, is loving and gentle and became one of
our favorites here....we all wanted her to have the BEST home so I screened
everyone carefully. Today she went
home to Nebraska to a wonderful family.
Her new dad drove 7 hours to get her, and spent time with her today
before taking off. I knew in my heart, I had chosen the best family....two
kids and a huge ranch in Nebraska.
This rescue business is tough. You take them
in, save them, get them well and socialized and then you love them. You want
to keep them forever, see them grow old. But if you love them, you let them
move on to their very own family and keep the ones who are never
chosen. We love you Buffy, and are
so proud of you. Know that I will envision you every day galloping through our
Buffy is a 3 1/2 year old, purebred, merle Great Dane. If you
are looking for perfection, you have it with this dog. She is housebroken, spayed and perfectly
behaved in the house and loves everyone.
Buffy just wants to be a lap dog, so your legs will get sort of
numb if she sleeps on your lap long enough.
Buffy was emaciated when we got her and she is now getting
four meals a day and we are seeing a slow improvement. Everyone who meets her falls in love with
this gentle giant. You cannot go wrong with this gal.
