Our Departed Friends
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 2008.

Adopted*** Larry† ***Adopted
came to us a total mess...heavily flea infested, losing his hair and
unneutered.† We set about getting
that taken care of and introducing him to all of
the dogs at SCARS.† Larry was a
winner!!† He loved everyone.† Along came a great family who needed a
pal for their dog, Nash.† Larry fit
the bill perfectly and his name was changed to Crosby
... you got it, Crosby and Nash!†
Here they are together having lots of fun!
Adopted*** Button† ***Adopted
Button is a 5 pound Yorkie
picked up on the street, flea infested and dirty. She was taken to the
emergency animal clinic, released to SCARS and adopted a day later by a
Yorkie lover!!† Here she is with her
new mom and will get to have 5 Yorkie brothers and sisters!!† We are happy she is off the streets and
in a good home!
Adopted*** Spencer† ***Adopted
has finally settled into his new home. After having been left to starve to
death in a cage, he was rescued by a man who paid all of Spencerís vet
bills and then brought him to SCARS.††
Because he is getting on in years and has arthritis, we were worried
no one would adopt him, but we were wrong! Spencer is now living happily
with an older couple on 24 acres with a pond next door and a neighbor dog,
Freckles, to play with. We wish this special guy all the luck and
happiness in the world.
is an 8 yr old black lab, who is neutered, housebroken and up to date on
shots.† Spencer was found almost
starved to death in a cage behind a house when a man was moving in. He had
a chain around his neck and could not lift his head. A kind person took him
to the vet and paid all of his bills and kept him there for several weeks.
Now he is a strong, healthy dog with many good years ahead of him. He tends
to be aggressive with other male dogs so it is recommended he either be a
single dog or just have a female companion. He is loving and gentle with
people and very obedient. Hopefully the right person will come along for
him. He deserves a good life now.
Adopted*** Millie† ***Adopted
We have finally found the perfect
home for Millie, which we doubted would happen.† She is timid and shy and snaps in defense
to make scary people go away.† This
strategy has been successful and although
people have come to meet her, they "mysteriously disappeared"
probably not patient enough to work with her.† However, a wonderful family has faith in
her, is undaunted by her tricks and has brought her into their home and she
is now a "lapdog!"† We are
so happy because she is a cutie pie, and only a special person could see
Millie is a one year old mix of
some sort. She is up to date on shots and housebroken. As you can see, she
likes kids and gets along with other dogs. Millie needs a home of her own
soon as her present owner cannot keep her.
Adopted*** Murphy† ***Adopted
long last, we have found a home where Murphy will be loved and cherished
and never hurt again. Although many special people have shown an interest
in him, the right family just took awhile to come along. He now has a
canine sister (a Visla named Penney), two loving parents, and a baby to
look after. This family did not flinch when we said he loves to lie on the
bed and pretends to be scary around food because he sometimes thinks he is
still starving. They seem to love him for his kind and gentle spirit.
Murphy has been an angel that we have been privileged to have live with us
while he healed and began to enjoy life Ö a life he richly deserves. We
will always love and miss you, Murph.
This is what Murphy looked like when we rescued him last
winter.† See how much he has
recovered in the picture with his new family above.
Murphy is a gorgeous 3 yr old
purebred Weimaraner. He is neutered, housebroken, and up to date on
shots.† Murphy was a poster dog for
a starvation case. He was left in a pen without adequate food or water and
when he was rescued, he was a skeleton.†
It took months of care to bring him to the point where he is today,
which is a flat out beautiful dog.†
He is now strong and healthy and must be an indoor
dog and part of a family.† He will
not be happy if left outside alone as he loves people and is a gentle
giant.† Whoever adopts this dog will
get the best dog in the world.
Adopted*** Blue Eyes (now known as Mya)†
Blues is now called Mya
and has gone to a great homewhere she is the center of attention.† She is getting to know her new humans,
and is working hard to get over her shyness around men.† Mya has her own yard where she plays
fetch with her rawhide bone (see the picture) and gets to go on long walks
in the park.† We think Mya has found
her forever home.† Way to go, Mya!
Blue Eyes is a one year old,
female, housebroken and spayed Siberian Husky. Her owners love her very much
but are moving to an apartment where the landlord will not let them have a
dog.† She can jump a fence if it
isnít 6 feet, or higher,† She is
really a beautiful girl, isnít she??
