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 2015.

Adopted*** Roadie ***Adopted
His name was
such because he was "on the road" and could not be caught for
weeks. Someone finally nabbed him,
called us and Roadie came here.
The beagle in him worried me as they can be runners, but Roadie
liked it here and stuck around. He
was so darn cute and the perfect size, that he caught the eye of a
wonderful family who decided to give him a chance. We have resisted posting until we knew he
would be a keeper, and as you can see in the picture, Roadie is home.
I came by my
name fair and square....I was found running loose on a country road. I think I ended up there by accident but
now I am at SCARS and having a lot of fun.
I am a 2 year old, Beagle mix and weigh 35 lbs. I am neutered and get along
perfectly with kids and other dogs.
However, I need to quit jumping up on people, but I also do not jump
fences nor do I ever run off now. I
like to hang with my new friends and play in the house. Other than the fact
I am adorable, I am the perfect dog for an active family.
Adopted*** Lorenzo ***Adopted
Lorenzo came to us weighing 4 lbs. He was found, miraculously, running down
a country road. I wonder how they
even saw him. We began with putting
weight on him, healing his fly bites and generally improving his health. After being "fixed" and gaining
two pounds, he was adopted by someone who loved him at first sight.
Apparently she will not let anyone have him, so I guess he is home for
Lorenzo is a 3 lb Chihuahua found
running down a dirt road. It is
amazing anyone even saw him!!
Lorenzo is just about the cutest dog we have ever seen, and he is a
great favorite here. He is now
neutered and had his shots and likes to cuddle in your lap...actually, he
likes to hide behind you when you are watching TV!!!
Adopted*** Poppy ***Adopted
Poppy has a
wonderful story to tell!! She left a
big shelter where she was going nuts and came to SCARS with lots of energy
to burn off! Her first adoption ended when she was found standing on their dining room
table. Upon arrival she said "But I was hungry!!" So it seemed no one who understands
heelers were going to find this cutie.
However, one day I got the perfect call and I knew it - Is Poppy
still available?" From then on,
after making various plans, I felt she was going to the right home. She has two heeler siblings and a big
family to love and protect. Patience
often pays off!!
Poppy is a ten month old, female Red Heeler. She is spayed and heartworm negative.
Poppy was in a city shelter and not doing well. She is high energy and wants to play
all of the time, and they reached out to us to take her here. Poppy loves running and swimming and is
doing really well. She settles down
nicely and is not a barker. At night we do not hear a peep out of
her. A t 38 lbs, she is a good size for most
Adopted*** Pepper ***Adopted
Pepper had a rough start.
He was locked in a kennel 24/7 and finally rescued. Upon arrival, he
had parvo and spent a few days on IV's at the vet. Then he ran in front of the Gator a
volunteer was driving and injured his hip and had surgery. Through it all,
he bounced back and maintained his fabulous personality. We wondered if his leg problems would
keep him from being adopted, and it did slow a few people down. However, one family saw his beautiful
self and took him home where he is thriving. We are so grateful to them for their
patience and understanding!
Pepper is a
gorgeous 6 month old, neutered, male mix of a variety of breeds. We think he may be a Leopard Catahoula,
but we’re not sure. He also
resembles the body of a Whippet, and the ears of a pit bull. Whatever he is, Pepper is as cute as
they get weighing about 30 lbs so far. He adores people and other dogs. He plays and plays and has a fabulous
disposition. We are all in love with this adorable puppy!
Adopted*** June ***Adopted
Remember our little
dog found running down a country road miles from any town? We named her
June Bug and found out that she was probably the sweetest dog we ever had
here. She was great with everyone and never had an accident, but time
went on and she did not get adopted. Finally, a wonderful family came along
and saw in her what we saw and took her home. She is settled in nicely and
is the great protector of the children!!
I was wandering
down a lonely, country road and very tired and hungry. I am not sure how I got there, but I
stumbled along as cars zoomed by.
Finally, I heard one slow down and a sweet voice asked me if I would
like a ride! I happily hopped in and
we drove away together. It was
a long drive and when we got to her house after a few hours she
tucked me in and said goodnight.
The next day her husband said I had to leave so the lady put me in
the car again, and off we went. This
time I was welcome at a doggie rescue and the lady at SCARS gave me lots of
food and a bath. I am feeling much
better and have had shots and some pills. I weigh about 40 lbs and she think my crooked legs are part basset and
my head might be lab or something. I did hear someone say I was an
"odd mix." Here is the
good news...I am gentle and sweet, I never bark or bother anyone and am
happy to just lie around and watch TV.
I am around two years old but my life has made me older and wiser
because it has been a tough one. I
think things are looking up and hope to get a forever home soon. In the meantime, I am safe and loved.
Adopted*** Daphne ***Adopted
Daphne came to us as a stray wearing a collar that was too
large and too heavy for a dog of her size.
From the minute we got her, we knew she would be wonderful for some
family. Daphne loves everyone and plays well with all of the dogs
here. I received several
applications for her but one came along that sounded perfect....lots of
understanding about issues that might come up regarding new dogs. So off she went in the new blue gingham
bed and her new toys. So far the news is all good and we hope it stays that
Daphne is a one and a half year old, 45 lb,
spayed, female Shepherd mix. She was
found in the country and the people did not want to keep her. Daphne is a
wonderful, sweet and loving dog who gets along well with kids, adults and
other dogs. She does not run off and does not have accidents. Everyone here
adores her! Someone is going to get a great dog.
Adopted*** Pebbles ***Adopted
Pebbles is a gorgeous blue mix of probably Great Dane and
Boxer. She arrived at a foster for
SCARS and no one really noticed her until she was posted on our
website. A wonderful family saw her
picture, went to meet her and Pebbles showed us a new side of
her...she LOVES kids!! Pebbles,
according to the family, does not even want to go outside and leave her
family ...she just waits to come back in. We think she is home for good!
Pebbles is an 8
month old, spayed, female Boxer/Pit/Lab mix. She weighs about 60 lbs and loves everyone!
Pebbles gets along fine with all dogs and cats and has a gorgeous
blue/lavender coat. Pebbles is housebroken so what more could anyone want
for a family pet?
Adopted*** Tucker ***Adopted
the cute little Heeler, who was "Out of time" last winter? We drove to a neighboring county and got
him out of "jail" and brought him home. He is so sweet and fun, I figured he
would be gone really fast. Oddly
enough, he kept getting overlooked.
Time went on and we all settled in and Tucker stole all of our
hearts. Then along came a family
whose dog we rescued some months ago, and their granddaughter was looking
for a pet. She gave it a lot of
thought, came back a couple of times, met a bunch of dogs and decided to
adopt Tucker. The deal was....no
chasing her cat! Well, we sure give
no guarantees but the good news is he is leaving the cat alone, and they
all seem to love this cute little dog. Happy future to our friend, Tucker.
Tucker is a darling, male, Blue Heeler/Basenji mix. He is around two years old, neutered, and
seems to be housebroken. He weighs
38 lbs and bounces around. Tucker loves everyone
and is just the perfect size. His
time "was up" in a neighboring county, so we brought him here to
SCARS and hope he will soon find his own family!
Adopted*** Boxer Pups ***Adopted
Our adorable Boxer mix pups are now ready to be adopted, and
Gibbs, who is now Barleigh, was the first to
go! He went off to Illinois with a
Boxer loving family and a new Boxer mommy named Bessie. Gibbs was the first to be born at SCARS
and it was several hours before the siblings decided to come along. Since he was #1 it is only appropriate he
would be the first to find a new home!
We are receiving wonderful videos of him playing in his new home and
so far, he seems just fine.
Pup number two, now known as Cleo, went off to her new home
with a graduate student in Accounting!
Cleo will probably never be late paying her bills or make mistakes
in her checkbook! She will have a
cat to play with and the friend's dog as a playmate. Her future looks bright and she will be
moving to Kansas City in the near future!
We think Cleo will be spoiled and loved as she should be!
Lucy and Daisy are snuggled safely in their new home, just a
few miles from SCARS!! We are so
excited the family gave in and took two, which the dad told my husband was
"not negotiable!!" We
wanted them to stay together so badly, and just knew those two teenage
girls would be so good for them. The news is all good and those two pups
are growing like weeds.
We have six of these beautiful, eight week old, Boxer mix
pups. There are four girls and two
boys. Since mom is so gentle and beautiful, the pups have the same
disposition. They are gentle, soft
and total cuddlebugs. We think they are gorgeous and will be
ready for adoption within a couple of weeks.
