(October to present)
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

Adopted*** Prince (now
known as Odie) ***Adopted
When I saw that
Prince was "out of time," I said we would take him. First of all, he was gorgeous, secondly,
he was young. I felt those two
things would make him very adoptable. What I did not know was when we
got him, he was thin and wired! I
decided running him around the pond every day and just letting him be a dog
would be to his benefit, and then we got him used to being in the house. He did really well but was still a
bit wild! We knew he would need
someone with patience and experience with retrievers and their boundless
energy, and this person (and his wife!!) came into Prince's life. Prince is now Odie, and has gone off to
his new home in Nebraska. He is
doing fine, has a canine brother, and is headed for obedience classes!!!
We miss his fun
energy but are thrilled he has begun his new life.
Prince is a
beautiful flat coated retriever male.
He is a year old, neutered, and weighs about 50 lbs. He is up to date on shots, heartworm
negative and loves everyone! Prince
is very friendly and playful and tends to be too energetic at
times. He definitely will need
someone to train him not to jump up and down joyously when he meets
someone. We feel he is smart and
will be a great family pet if one can get through his "teenage"
Adopted*** Nick ***Adopted
Just when we had despaired of finding the right home for Nick,
the perfect person came along! For
one thing he does not like men and growls at them. For his new owner, a single mom, it was
perfect. Plus, he loves being
outside in the country and snuggled in bed at night, and he is now on an 80
acre farm. He doesn't bother the
cattle, has a nine year old human brother he can sleep with and we
are thrilled he is finally settled in his new home.
Nicky is a 14
month old, male Jack Russell terrier mix of some sort!! He is neutered, housebroken, heartworm
negative and up to date on his shots.
Nicky weighs about 45 lbs and was in a
large shelter and not doing well. He
needed to get out and have lots of exercise to settle down. Nick loves women and gets along great
with other dogs but is leery of men.
He warms up to them in time, but they need to be patient. He is really a cutie pie and will make
some family a great companion.
Thank you to
this wonderful family for providing Freckles with such a wonderful, and
We love happy
Freckles is a Brittany
Spaniel mix of some sort. He is
neutered, heartworm negative and super friendly with kids and adults. He may do best as a single dog or his
canine partner should be a female.
He is shy at first and then the best tail wagger
ever. Freckles weighs 30 lbs
so this picture makes him look much bigger than he is. We are not sure about housebreaking yet,
but working on it. He is definitely
crate trained. Freckles
is the perfect size for a family and waiting for his new home!!
Adopted*** Gizmo and
Gizmo and Sara's
owner passed away and the relatives had no room for them. SCARS was
contacted and we took them in and had hoped, originally, to adopt them
together. However, as time went on
we felt their different personalities would make them good candidates for
different types of families. Gizmo
is now happily settled with two adults and lots of attention.....and
another dog to play with!
Sarah has gone home to four children so she will be too busy to
miss another dog. Sarah really just
wanted to hog her person's attention so we are thrilled they have both gone
Here is our
story: We were all one big happy family when suddenly our owner
disappeared. We overheard something
about a funeral, and he never came home. Some nice people were
feeding us, but we were lonely and then a lady came and got us and took us
to the country with lots of other dogs.
This is fun and we are busy playing a lot, but we miss having our
I am the white one and my name is Gizmo and I am a Shih Tzu.
I am around 3-4 years old and "fixed." I am housebroken but I must admit I need
a bit of reminding since we were left in the yard a lot. I weigh about 20 lbs
and am sort of shy. Once I get to
know you, I am very friendly! My
sister is Sara and she is only 1 1/2 years old. She is spayed and
weighs around 20 lbs and is a Lhasa Apsa mix. She is
housebroken and very friendly and outgoing. She loves to jump up
in your lap and loves to play. We
would like to stay together, but it is not a sure thing. I think we would be fine going our
separate ways if we both had loving families!
Adopted*** Diesel ***Adopted
mislabeled at a large city shelter and a volunteer begged us to take
him. He had been there so long and
barked hopelessly, that he lost his voice.
One of our fosters took him in and we had
him vetted and ready to go. At her
house he did great with kids, other dogs and cats! So, the news was false
on this cutie pie. He has gone to a wonderful home and we are grateful
Adopted*** Mystic (now known as Rugar) ***Adopted
My name was
Mystic when I arrived at a shelter in Kansas. I had been neglected as had my brothers,
and we were skinny and had sores all over us. In time we healed and got adopted. My brother had a bad habit of running in
the road and was killed by a car, and I was returned. The people thought I would do the same
thing even though I told them I wouldn't.
It was tough coming back and I began to get depressed and sort of
gave up. A lady was visiting our
shelter and I saw her looking at me.
I tried to look happy but she left.
However, not too long after that I was told to "come on, we're
going for a ride." So I hopped
in the shelter car. I was taken to a beautiful place in the country with
fields and flowers where I could play and have fun. Right after that a pretty lady came to
look at me and then she said, "hop in the truck, you are going
home." I had never had so many
car rides! I did as I was told, and
we drove to another beautiful place in the country with horses and another
dog who looked just like me, but he was
black. Here's the rest of the
story...."I am home....forever." (and my
new name is Rugar!!)
Adopted*** Fiesta (now known as Gigi) ***Adopted
OK, so I am
going to be the one telling this story!
They called me Fiesta which means party, but I was not at any
party! I was stuck in a small room
in a city shelter and I hated it, so I jumped up and down and screamed and
yelled to get OUT!!! A visitor heard
me and decided to "spring me!"
By the time I got out of there and to my new digs, I was still
pretty wired. H owever, after running as fast as
my legs could take me on 50 acres several times a day,
I decided I could pretend to be normal.
So, I settled in, was a good girl MOST of the time, but no one
noticed me. Time went on and I
decided hanging out on 50 acres wasn't so bad, but I needed my own spot and
my very own person. Then, when I was
least expecting it, this man came to visit and I saw hearts and
flowers!!! I was in love!!! I followed him everywhere and wagged my
tail really hard and when he left, I ran along the fence barking and told
him to hurry back. And guess
what...he did; and he took me home!
Now I have a doggie brother and my own person and my new name is
Gigi....but I am really and truly at a Fiesta at last.
Well, here we
go. Everyone asks what breed I
am. It appears my primary breed is
English Pointer and the rest is up for grabs. I am two years old, spayed and doing
great on my housebreaking. I
weigh 65 lbs and am heartworm negative. I was in a city shelter for two years and
not doing well. I wanted to run and play and I couldn't get the
exercise I needed so I acted "stressed out." Now that I have 50 acres, lots of friends
and two ponds, I am on my way to being the perfect companion. I have no aggression problems, and I love
people...especially kids except I am too jumpy. I am working on that too. Will you give
me a chance to join your family?
Adopted*** Sophie ***Adopted
Sophia came and
went very quickly! Her previous
owner brought her here because he could not afford to feed her, but I
knew a purebred, female Dachshund would find a home soon! We had several wonderful families who
were interested in her, but we think she is settled in the right home. She has a Doxie
sister, and two kids at home to spoil her. Her beautiful turquoise collar went with her!
Sophia is a 3
year old purebred Dachshund. She is
spayed and housebroken and came from a family with kids who cannot keep her
any longer. She is very gentle and
sweet and absolutely adorable. We
have not heard her bark yet! Sophia
weighs about 7 lbs and is a perfect house/lap
