Adopted*** Charlie ***Adopted

 

Charlie is a beautiful, 6 month old, male Lab/Weimaraner mix. He was found as a stray in Kansas City by a couple who had just lost their home and was in no position to take on a dog.  They searched for a no kill shelter and called SCARS.  I met them in Lawrence, KS and as soon as I saw him, I knew he would get adopted quickly and he did.  In fact, the couple who adopted him are both CPA's and needed to know up front if Charlie could count.  I was not sure, but he is pretty smart so it is possible.  He is fitting in just fine, having lots of fun and they might just cut him some slack if he can't count, because he is a wonderful companion.

Adopted*** Nina ***Adopted

 

Nina and her mom, Lottie (still on website) followed a man six blocks in 100 degree heat.  He brought them in and gave them food and water, searched for their owner and never found them. Although he and his wife kept them for a while, they were unable to pay for vet bills and turned them over to SCARS.  Nina is missing an eye from some kind of trauma, according to our vet, but gets along great.  She is so adorable, she was scooped up and adopted by one of our volunteers so Nina has "adopted" Peanut as her baby now.

Adopted*** Jackson ***Adopted

 

When Jackson's owner died, I despaired at finding him a home as it was so hard the first time. He came from an abusive environment and a friend took him in two years ago and kept him although she had only planned to foster!  He does not warm up to strangers and hides under the bed or table and barks ferociously.  I had a call from a woman looking for a companion dog and I told her about Jackson....with all of his problems.  She said she would give him a try. He refused to come out of his crate so we carried it into the garage and left him there to decide for himself when he would emerge.  Well, he did come out and then refused to eat for three days.  Finally, he has settled in thanks to the family's incredible love and patience.  He is now their dog and only their dog!!! It is truly a Christmas miracle.

 

 

 

 

Jackson is a 2-3 year old, tri color, male Australian Shepherd.  He is neutered, housebroken and up to date on shots.  Jackson needs to go somewhere that is relatively quiet as he is very shy and timid.  His owner is critically ill and no longer in her home.  Jackson was rescued from a very frightening environment two years ago and has worked out perfectly in his present home since then.  We can provide many details, but the bottom line is he is gentle, loving but shy. He could have worse problems!!!

Adopted*** Tigger ***Adopted

 

 

When I received a call from a family who needed to find homes for all three dogs, I went into action.  Not only were we facing the holidays, but I only had two weeks. One of the dogs was a Peagle named Tigger.  I was not familiar with this designer breed, but it is a Beagle/Pug mix.  He was good to go and a got along well with kids and other dogs.  I had a call from someone looking for a small to medium sized male dog and I called them. This worked out great as their grandkids all loved him. Tigger is safely tucked away in his new home, just in time for the holidays!!

Adopted*** Faith ***Adopted

 

A few months ago we received a call for help on a dog in a Kansas shelter who was showing aggression.  I contacted my German Shepherd owner friends and they adopted her.  She is doing great and has calmed down, and then we got Dallas!  Dallas was a wild German Shepherd who was blind in one eye.  He needed some serious work and guess who I called?  This couple knows how to deal with German Shepherds.  They took Dallas in, made him into a great housedog and now had their perfect family.....until we got Faith!!!  Faith had nowhere to go and was too thin and showing some strange behaviors.   Hmmmm...guess who I called?  They decided to just try her out briefly and when I got an  application on Faith, they decided she was staying right where she was.  Amazing!! I am a firsthand witness to three, somewhat unruly German Shepherds, living in peace and harmony....what a Christmas gift!!!

 

 

Faith is a beautiful female, one year old German Shepherd ... soon to be spayed.  She is housebroken and gets along well with dogs and kids.  She tends to be on the thin side, probably around 50 lbs and is up to date on her shots. She is wearing a pink harness to show how cute she is!!
