Adopted*** Shadow ***Adopted


Description: shadow home 0411-1.jpg


Shadow has gone off to his new home! As you may remember, he was a starvation case and he and his brother survived, but the sister did not. He is now strong and healthy thanks to tender loving care from his foster home. He has a dachshund for a canine pal and a cat to chase . He has lots of room to run and is adjusting nicely to his new digs. We are soooo happy for this boy!!



Description: shadow 0411-1.jpg

Shadow is a gorgeous, male, purebred, black German Shepherd.  He is one year old, housebroken, obedience trained, great with kids (and dogs), neutered and up to date on shots. He weighs about 50 lbs and was rescued as a pup from a neglectful breeder.  Shadow has come a long way from his former starvation state and is now a beautiful, healthy dog. This is not the type of dog that comes along very often, so if you are interested, let us know.  He will probably get adopted quickly.




Adopted*** Carl ***Adopted


Description: karl home 0411-1.jpg

We had almost given up on finding the right home for Carl.  He is a huge Rottweiler and a gentle giant BUT he has a problem.  His ankle was swollen when he arrived at SCARS and we had it X-rayed which revealed it was full of shrapnel.  He apparently had been shot.  Thus began a series of injections to rebuild the ankle and K State said the shrapnel could not be removed. His new dad is cool with it and will keep an eye on this big guy.  When Carl jumps up he stands about six feet but dad is 6'6" so he won't knock HIM over!!



Description: carl new 0411.jpgCarl is a 3-4 yr old neutered, housebroken, gentle purebred Rottweiler Description: car 011011-1.jpgof about 90-100 lbs. Despite his intimidating size, he is a gentle giant. He came from a family with three children and has been an outside/indoor dog. For a variety of reasons, they are unable to keep him. Carl looks just like the dog in the book about the Rottie named Carl!! He really is a sweetheart and deserving of a wonderful home.




Adopted*** Sammy (now known as Jazz) ***Adopted


Description: sammy home 0411-1.jpg

Sammy is now Jazz and living happily with his family which consists of a mom and two human brothers.  Mom came to visit SCARS one day with her friend who is a loyal volunteer and met Sammy.  She loved him, went home to western Kansas to talk to her family and drove back for him a week later.  All reports are that he is doing great and although we miss him, we could not be happier that he is safely settled with his new family.


Description: Sammy2-1.jpgDescription: Sammy1-1.jpg

Sammy is a one and a half year old, male, Bichon Frise male.  He is now neutered, up to date on shots, and weighs 20 lbs.  Sammy appeared at someone's door on a snowy night and has never been claimed.  He is almost housebroken, loves kids and other dogs.  Sammy will be groomed soon and is a darling dog!  He has lots of energy but is not hyper and lover to play.  Stay tuned for more information!




Adopted*** Sonny and Charlie ***Adopted


Description: oreo and charlie home1.jpg

Sonny and Cher did not get adopted together but they are both settling in well with their new families. We will send pics of Cher soon! In the meantime, great news for Sonny and Charlie...they have been adopted together. One of my our most faithful volunteers showed them to her parents and they decided to take two dogs...and they chose two adorable little boys! Sonny is now Oreo (the gray and white shih tzu) and Charlie had kept his name. They are learning to share their new parents although Oreo wanted mom all to himself. That didn't go over to well, so he has had to be good and let Charlie have his turn on her lap. Both share dad so all is well in their doggie world.


Adopted*** Cher (now known as Daisy) ***Adopted


Description: Pam & Daisy1.jpg


Daisy has found a wonderful home. Her mom and human sister are home all day to play.  She is starting to come out of her shell and play now. We have only heard her bark one time and that was when she was startled from sleep when dad came home. We are all in love with her and can't wait to take her to our cabin in Minnesota for the summer.




Description: sally and harry1.jpgSonny and Cher are both one year old – Sonny a purebred Shih-tzu, and Cher a purebred Lhasa Apso. They are housebroken and spayed/ neutered and weigh about 15 lbs each. These two have been together for the first year of their lives - wouldn't it be great if they could be adopted together??  However, we know that may not be possible. They are both quiet, well behaved dogs.  Sonny does not like being crated, he wants to be free roaming, but Cher does not mind a crate. Their owner can no longer take care of them so they are now waiting for a new home.



Description: charlie 0311-1.jpgCharlie is a 3 year old, male, purebred Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.  He is housebroken, weighs 18 lbs, is neutered, up to date on shots and a darling, sweet dog.  His owner is quite ill and can no longer take care of him.  They tell me he never has an accident and loves other dogs.  So far, everyone at SCARS adores him.  Here's the deal...he only has one eye and three legs but it sure doesn't slow him down one bit!  As a friend said "he sure is young to be so buggered up" but one hardly notices he has anything wrong.  This is really a wonderful dog.





Adopted*** Fluffball Pups ***Adopted


Description: tan fluffball home1.jpg

The tan pup is doing great with his new family.  He is now Simba and has a lab for a brother who he loves. Here his new parents are meeting him and his sister but they decided on the tan pup because he looks like the chow they lost to old age. So far all reports are glowing!!




Description: fluffball pups1.jpgDescription: fluffball pups2.jpg

These three, twelve week old pups weigh around 10 lbs. - two black and one tan.  They have had their first puppy shots and been wormed and are normal, happy and healthy.  They are probably Shepherd,/ Chow/ Teddy Bear mix.  We do not have much information on them except that they were in a box being given away for free and we did not want them to go to irresponsible homes who would take them on a whim.  We are looking for a permanent Description: fluffball pups3-1.jpgcommitment as we do with all of our adoptions.










Adopted*** Dolly ***Adopted


Dolly has made a long trip in her short little life.  She was snatched from death's door when she was to be put down in Salina for being a pit bull mix.  SCARS took her in and fell in love with her. Everyone who came to visit said she was the sweetest, gentlest dog in the world.  How could anyone Description: dolly home 0311-1.jpgkill her? Her new owner is a runner and Dolly has lots of energy.  He has a big yard with a fence and she is primarily an inside dog, of course, because she has to watch basketball games from the sofa.  He tells us she is a champion tennis ball catcher and returns and releases the ball to the thrower!  Well, we saw her leave with a lump in our throat but know she will have a wonderful life.



Description: dolly 010511-1.jpg

Description: dolly new 031711-1.jpgDolly is a female, American Bull dog mix.  She is five months old, up to date on shots, and weighs 25 lbs and is still gaining weight.  Dolly is housebroken, spayed, and an absolute sweetheart.  She is playful and loves people and other dogs...she is "all puppy."  Dolly had the misfortune to belong to someone who moved to a small Kansas town still in the dark ages of pit bull legislation. Anyone having a Rottie or a pit mix of any type has their dog confiscated and taken to the pound for imminent death.  Her owner, being new to town, did not know this and was traumatized when animal control literally pulled up and took her dog away, not even allowing her to say goodbye.  She contacted SCARS and we took her in. The vet does not feel she is a pit, but a Staffordshire Terrier mix. Whatever she is, she is darling and sweet and well worth the effort to save her.






Adopted*** Remy ***Adopted



Description: remy home1.jpg

Remy's foster mom gave up and decided to adopt him for her own. We do not understand why he didn't get adopted as he is a beautiful and good dog. However, months have gone by and Remy has waited patiently meanwhile getting more and more attached to foster mom. She had a change in venue and moved to a nearby town and made the decision to just adopt him - so he is now living in a small western Kansas town and probably wearing a cowboy hat and boots. We hope he will have a wonderful life.



Description: remy 101910-1.jpgRemy is a one year old, male, Golden Retriever mix.  He is neutered, housebroken and up to date on shots.  Remy is a small Golden mix and actually weighs around 40 lbs.  His mom's house burned to the ground and she escaped with her purse and him.  She has had to move in with relatives and there is no place for Remy so he is here with us.  He loves playing with other dogs and is quiet and well behaved in the house.  This dog is going to be a great companion.







Adopted*** Max and Pepper ***Adopted


Description: MaxxandPepper003-1.jpg

Max and Pepper's owners could not keep them due to the fact they had family commitments that kept them out of town a great deal.  So, we began searching for a family who would take both of them....a tough job.  The perfect family came along who had recently lost their lab of many years. They had not planned to take two dogs, but when they saw Max and Pepper, decided to "go for it!"  The upshot is both dogs are great and the new family is thrilled with their new additions.


Description: SAM_0096-1.jpg

These two beautiful labs are looking for a new home.  They are 4 1/2 yrs old, spayed/neutered, housebroken, and absolutely fabulous dogs.  Max is the male, yellow Lab, and Pepper is the female, black lab.  They weigh about 60 lbs.  Their owners are having to travel out of town frequently and do not like leaving them alone so much with a dogsitter.  It would be great if they did not have to be separated but we will do so if necessary.  It would be easier all around to keep them together because they keep each other company and play together.  They love kids and other dogs and like to run and play.  Aren't they wonderful dogs???
