Adopted*** Sally ***Adopted
beginning to wonder if Sally would ever find her new home! I have learned that if we wait patiently,
the right people find our dogs.
Along came the PERFECT couple! They had a dog who needed a playmate
and one with energy....that would be Sally.
Not everyone can deal with heelers since they are bossy and like to
nip your ankles. However, that did
not deter them and Sally, so far, is doing great with her new bro named
Sally is just
too cute for words!! She is a two
year old, female, Aussie/Blue Heeler mix.
She is spayed, housebroken and loves other dogs. Sally sometimes gets carried away with
herself and thinks she is the boss, but most of our dogs put her in her
place. Weighing in at 35 lbs she has to act big and scary since she is just a
squirt. She was in a dark basement
type shelter and was very sick upon arrival. She would not eat and kept
throwing up but we found out she had parasites and got them all cleared up
and she is raring to go!
Adopted*** Petunia ***Adopted
so many applications and phone calls, I started answering the phone
"Petunia's answering service!!"
I wish we had 100 just like her.
However, although there were many wonderful people who were
interested in her, she went to the perfect home. Mom and Dad are home a lot, and she now
has a canine sister who is a similar breed.
Everyone tells me she has gone to a wonderful home where she will be
loved and adored so I knew I made the right decision!!
Petunia is a female Wheaton/Cairn terrier mix. She is 3 months old, and weighs 8
lbs. She will be spayed by the time
she is adopted and has had her puppy shots. Petunia is about as cute as
they come, and she is also a loving, wonderful puppy who gets along with
everyone!! Whoever takes her into
their home will have a fabulous companion.
Adopted*** Tyga ***Adopted
Tyga came to SCARS out of options, as do most of our dogs. His
family split up and was moving and could not take him. He had never been neutered or had shots,
so we began our ritual of vet appointments and socialization with other
stole the hearts of all of us here and we decided the right family would
find him when the time was right.
Well, the right family did come along with another little dog
who was lonely and needed a pal. Tyga, being Mr. Joviality, seemed the right sibling and
the rest is history. They are great
buds and Tyga has his very own family!!
TYGA is a 3 year old, male, Rat Terrier, maybe with a little
Beagle mix. He weighs 30 lbs and is housebroken, neutered and great with kids
and other dogs. Tyga
is so sweet and loving that anyone who adopts him will have a fabulous
Adopted*** Mama Aspen (now known as Hazel) ***Adopted
Aspen's trip to her forever home has been a "long and
winding road." She came to us
with five puppies, the third litter in two years and she was very
tired. We found homes for all of her
babies and she was adopted to a family who did not take proper care of her
so we brought her back here. We
decided to keep her until the PERFECT owner came to adopt her and they had
to meet all sorts of rigid requirements....to love and adore her forever
and ever. Well, it has happened. She
is now safely tucked in with her new mom who loves her and the feeling is
clearly mutual. Like all of our dogs,
they are always welcome back here, but we do not think she will be returning.
Oh, and her new name is Hazel!!!
Adopted*** Sonny ***Adopted
Sonny's owner turned him in to us because she was too ill
to take care of him any longer. He was terrified and refused to play
with any of the other dogs and did not eat well. One of our favorite
fosters took him in and made several trips to meet prospective
adopters but they all fell through.
Most were discouraged when he refused to come out from under a sofa,
and one family braved it overnight.
Sonny did not want to leave his "foster" and made that
clear to everyone. He is now a
permanent member of her family and wagging his tail furiously. He knew
exactly what he was doing!
Sonny is a 5 year old registered Papillon. He weighs 10 lbs,
is neutered and housebroken. He is
fine with other dogs and shows no aggression. Due to a serious illness,
Sonny’s owner has to relinquish him although she has had him since he was a
pup. Right now he is very frightened
but gentle and we are anxious to get him settled in his new home where he
can relax and have a lot of attention again.
Adopted*** Jackson ***Adopted
When I met Jackson he was living in a pen outside because the
parents had divorced and he could not go to the apartment where mom
had moved. In the meantime, he was being visited daily and being
fed, but life was boring and lonely.
It was time to move on, as his counselor told him. Enter SCARS...known for moving on at a
rapid pace. Jackson was whisked off
to the vet, neutered and updated on shots and, woohoo, heartworm negative.
Everyone loved this little short legged golden retriever and in time the
right family found him. He now has three human children to love, a lab
sister and two responsible parents. Another happy ending!
Jackson is an interesting dog!
He appears to be a male, Golden Retriever/Basset mix. He is 4 years old, neutered and loves
everyone. We would call him Mr. Friendly but he came with a name. His owner said he used to
be housebroken, but events changed and he lived outside for a
while. He was groomed today and sure
is pretty. His gorgeous red coat and
stubby legs make him quite the character!
Adopted*** Bandit ***Adopted
Bandit came to
me from a former student who could no longer keep him. To be honest, he had some troublesome
issues such as being head shy and timid.
Normally this does not go over well with prospective adopters. However, miracles do happen and along
came a woman who happened to mention loving German Shepherds! I told her we had one and would she like
to meet him? He was amazingly
responsive to her, and she called back a few days later and wanted to
try him out at her house. So, off we
went and he seemed thrilled to be leaving the chaos of 50 dogs. He liked her house (except for the
hardwood floors) and ran around sniffing everything. In fact, he did not wave goodbye when we left..ha
ha. The news from the front
is all good and he is staying!
