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 *** Ringo ** Adopted
Ringo is an
adorable Border Collie mix puppy who has now gone off to a wonderful
home! As you can see in the picture,
he is going to be spoiled rotten and that is just fine with us. Have a great life, Ringo, and send us
grown up pictures.
Ringo is a 10
week old, neutered, male Border Collie/Lab mix. He has a gentle and loving personality
and will make someone a fabulous pet.
He lives with other dogs and cats, and also kids, so he has been
carefully tested and gotten straight A's!!
Adopted *** Pretty Boy ** Adopted
When I got a
call from a woman who had found this beautiful dog, we felt he would be
quickly claimed. But time went on,
and he was not. One day a family
came to SCARS looking for a dog so I told them about Pretty Boy and they
were definitely interested. Off they went to meet him and in time, they
made the decision to adopt him as a member of their family. What
a great life he has ahead of him.
Pretty Boy was a stray and all attempts to find his owner
failed. The wonderful people who
rescued him have taken great care of this cutie, and he is thriving. He is probably a Staffordshire terrier,
around a year old and loves everyone.
He weighs about 60 lbs and thinks he is a
puppy. He sits on command and does
not jump any of our fences. He
is well behaved in the house and does not tear up anything in his kennel.
Pretty Boy will be neutered as soon as we can get an appointment! He also seems to do well with other
dogs, but cats are probably not a good idea!!
Adopted *** Cooper ** Adopted
Cooper is not
the Golden Retriever in the picture - that is his best friend and now his
brother. Cooper had a close call as he was abandoned in a yard and
just as the police came to get him, a neighbor stepped in and agreed to
take him. In time it proved to be a
bit much with their other dogs, and they called SCARS and he went to our
foster who took wonderful care of him until his new mom came along. Now he is settled in his home with
his brother dog, a huge yard and, when I pulled into the driveway, he was
peeking around the curtains checking me out!
Adopted *** Thor ** Adopted
owner called to surrender him, I went over to meet him. He was too thin and covered in
sores. I explained we could not
adopt out a sick dog and offered to take him to our vet, which we did. She had continued taking him to a vet
clinic who was clearly lost as to how to treat him. In time, he began recovering but had a
long was to go. I happened to show
his picture to a friend in Kansas City and she called me later and said he
was the dog for her! Now she has
taken on the task of getting him back to full speed and is doing a
fantabulous job. Wow! Good old Thor
is really looking good!
Adopted *** Jess ** Adopted
Jess is happy, happy, happy! She has a sister named Catalina who is a
playful husky. The two of them
entertain their mom all day long with their antics. Jess has decided this is her home, and
she will protect it at any cost. She
has learned to climb stairs and hog the bed! Jess has come a long way from the
starved, poisoned poor dog who came to SCARS on her last leg. Glad she is an easterner now!
Jess is a five year old Pointer female, 50 lbs, spayed and
housebroken. She was found, half
starved, on a country road and brought to us. When her owner surfaced, he said she had
gotten into rat poison and wandered off. He surrendered her to SCARS and
the battle to save her began. Three
weeks of vitamin K and lots and lots of groceries, brought her back to
being well and healthy. Jess is now
energetic (and some) and loves everyone.
She will make some family a fantastic pet and, by the way, she says
her days of being an outside dog and a hunting dog are OVER! She has gotten adjusted to the good life
of lying around on a sofa and this works for her.
Adopted *** Carmen ** Adopted
Carmen has been
adopted and is doing great. Unfortunately we have been unable to get apicture, but we do
know she is doing well.
The first time I met Carmen, I ducked. She flew across the room like a bat and
landed on the table in front of me.
“Wow, no wonder they cannot keep this dog”, I thought to myself. So the next step was to go to a foster
where she continued to be wild, but calmed down a bit. Then off she went to her new
home.....three guesses - the first two don't count. They love her, but her energy level is
too high. Carmen
is a year and a half old, lavender, female pit mix. She is spayed, weighs around 50 lbs, housebroken, and good with kids. However, her high energy level makes it
difficult for working parents to give her the exercise she needs. She
is now housebroken, crate trained and weighs 55 lbs. What does this beautiful dog need?? Lots of exercise and room to run. I know, that's hard to find in our world
today, plus they feel she would do best as an only dog.
Adopted *** Bruno ** Adopted
Bruno has been adopted to a family who got a dog from us a few
years back. They recently lost their Chihuahua so they felt Bruno fit the
bill and he is doing great as you can see from his picture! We know he
is in good hands.
Bruno is a year old ten pound Chihuahua. He is neutered and mostly housebroken and
is a sweetheart. Bruno takes a while
to warm up to people, but once he does, he is devoted. He is not recommended for small children
as they make him nervous. He is very handsome in his winter sweater!
Adopted *** Pups from Hoarder ** Adopted
gorgeous blonde dog we got from a hoarding situation? Well, she came to SCARS and a week later
had six beautiful pups. One is the
famous Bianca, the runt, who was born with a heart abnormality. However, the other five were perfect!!
Here they are......Millie, Gus, Bentley, Roxy and Rugar! All are happily settled in their new
homes and living the life!
Adopted *** Eve ** Adopted
If ever a dog could debunk a myth, Eve will about Pit
Bulls. She turned out to be the
gentlest and sweetest dog our foster has ever had. In fact, I did not think our foster would
ever let her go BUT when the perfect family came along to spoil her
rotten, she gave in and let her get adopted. We see a wonderful life ahead of her!
Eve is a four year old blue nosed pit bull. She is now spayed
and up to date on her shots. Eve was being neglected with her previous
owner and extremely thin and underfed and is up to about 70 lbs. She ended up with a foster of ours and is
truly the perfect dog. She is housebroken, gentle with kids and other dogs
and cats, and happy to lounge on the sofa!!
Eve debunks all of the rumors about pit bulls as she is truly a
loving, gentle soul.
