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 *** Barney *** Adopted
Barney came to us from a small pound in a rural area...not very
appealing to say the least. But he
hung in there until a rescue came along and saved him! He was underweight at 103 lbs with ribs showing but a few weeks of being fed
three times a day brought him up to snuff. He found his perfect home with a couple
on 40 acres and has taken charge of the place!
Barney is a 105 lb, male, blonde Lab
mix. He is neutered and up to date
on shots. He is a gentle,
affectionate dog and does not jump fences. Beyond that we have little
information. He might not be a good candidate for a house with cats as he
seems overly interested in them at the vet's office, but who knows!!!
Adopted *** Wyatt *** Adopted
Wyatt was Doc's
BFF and we worried he would be lonely once Doc got adopted. But along came the right family with a
little boy who really needed a pal to hug and sleep with. Wyatt loved the idea and has settled in
nicely as his role of dog sitter to the two kids!
Wyatt is a 3-3.5
year old, 90 lb, male, Anatolian Shepherd. He is neutered and gentle with
people. He seems to be very
"chill" with other dogs, and no info on cats. He does not seem to have any
"prey" instincts which is good.
Wyatt was living in deplorable conditions with his buddy, Doc (see
above), and needs time to regrow thin hair and build muscles.
Adopted *** Doc *** Adopted
Doc had so many applications
I was not sure I could keep up with all of them....and so many good
ones. Old English Sheep Dogs are
rare and apparently very popular. So finally, after much deliberation, I
chose a Kansas couple who have turned out to be perfect for Doc!!
Doc is between 4 and 5 yrs old and
waiting for the perfect home! Doc is an 80 lb
purebred Old English Sheepdog. He appears to be housebroken and Doc will do
best having access to air conditioning as he was left in brutal heat for
long periods and loves his new life with AC! We think he looks just like a Disney
character! He is neutered,
microchipped and heartworm negative.
Doc loves everyone and gets along well with other dogs. He would also do well as an only! Doc and his pal were in a very difficult
situation as they were very hot and had no room to exercise or get
cool. Doc is great with people of all ages and loves to play ball.
Give us a call or fill out an application if interested.
Adopted *** Ruger *** Adopted
Poor Ruger was brought back after a year and a half because he
killed the neighbor's chicken! Well,
he has Great Pyrenees in him so that is no surprise. However, we had
to find a home without poultry!! And
along came a family with three children, no other dogs, a big fenced yard
and no chickens!! So far the news is
all good...he adores the kids and seemed so very happy to be heading
to his forever home.
Ruger was born here in a litter of six, all of whom were
quickly adopted. Ruger was especially beautiful with his soft, fluffy
and coat and luxurious tail. However, after a year and a half, he has
been returned to SCARS for killing a chicken. Ruger weighs 100 lbs and is great with kids and other dogs, plus he is
housebroken and neutered...the perfect companion. We think he is probably
Great Pyrenees and retriever mix and will be a fabulous companion to a
family....with no chickens!
Adopted *** Zeena *** Adopted
Zeena was a rescue from an auction of puppy mill dogs because she
did not produce pups...lucky for her, Zeena came
to us very timid but gentle and loving. The first family returned her after
four days for a strange reason...she would not climb stairs. So we kept her here and worked on her
self-confidence and along came the perfect owners. Their comment was "She is never
coming back!!" And that is what we want to hear.
Zeena is a drop dead gorgeous, 2 year old, purebred, female German
Shepherd. She was being auctioned off somewhere in Oklahoma because
she was a bad breeder. The person who
saw her, and realized she would be destroyed if not bought, shelled out
the money for her rescue and called us. Zeena is now
spayed and totally gentle. She
aspires to be a warrior princess, but it will be awhile as she is
needs a quiet, loving home where she can be cherished as a member of a
family who will know how lucky there are to have her.
Adopted *** Frankie *** Adopted
Not everyone can handle a 100 lb St.
Bernard who thinks she is a puppy!!
So, we were really beginning to wonder if we would ever find a home
for Frankie. Although she had some
good inquiries, nothing was quite right UNTIL one of my former teaching
colleagues contacted me to say her St. B had passed away. I knew they would take wonderful care of
Frankie and told them how much she needed a home. Frankie is now
happily settled in with this wonderful family and apparently squishing
everyone trying to spread herself on top of both of them as a pillow! We
are thrilled she is home.
a 2 year old, purebred, female St. Bernard. She is spayed, and weighs almost 100
lbs. Frankie was surrendered by a
family with four children and they said they just did not have time for
her. She is people oriented, and
thinks she is a lap dog. Frankie
wants to be held and petted and gets along great with small dogs. We do not know much about her with large
dogs yet. We do know she can be territorial and protect her
"space." We think her freckles are adorable.
Adopted *** Mike (now known as Jupiter) *** Adopted
This gorgeous German Shepherd came to us from another state and
we fell in love with him, as did several others! In time he has found the perfect home
with one of our closest friends who has taken him in, integrated him with
her dogs and showered him with love. We could not be happier for this
Mike is a
gorgeous, 5-6 year old, male, German Shepherd. He is neutered and heartworm
negative, knows commands, and is the all-around perfect dog. Mike loves kids, other dogs and all
people. He has absolutely no
aggression and just wants to play and play.
Mike thinks he is a puppy and acts like one. Everyone who meets him falls in love and
we are looking for an active home where he can run in the woods and sleep
inside at night. This dog is all
Adopted *** Jack and Joe *** Adopted
It is not often we get purebred, registered, long haired
Dachshunds, but we got two!! They
came to us from an auction of puppy millers where a friend went to pick up
a dog. When she saw them, she wanted
to make sure they went to a safe place, so she brought them home and
called us. They were so precious but
we had to make sure they stayed together. Fortunately, this great family came to
meet them and adopted them as a pair.
As you can see, they are just where they should be!!
Joe and Jack were also rescues from an auction (see Zeena above).
Although I have never attended one, I hear they are
dreadful. Can you imagine the fear a
dog feels in a cage with people bidding on them? So, my good friend rescued them with her
own money and they are brothers and a bonded pair. They only weigh about 12 lbs each and are now neutered and registered long
haired Dachshunds. I will be asked
but have no information on how they do around cats. However, once you
meet them it will be laughable to even ask.
Joe and Jack’s disposition is gentle and loving and they do not seem
to have any personality problems considering they came from a puppy
mill. We are thrilled they found
their way here and will make some lucky family and wonderful addition.
Adopted *** Gordon *** Adopted
Gordon is also safe in his new home. We certainly despaired of ever finding
him a home, but I love to be proven wrong.
His new owner is patient and his brother dog was adopted from SCARS some
years ago. Gordon's transformation is nothing less than miraculous.
Adopted *** Dottie *** Adopted
Dottie is now
safely tucked away in her new home.
She apparently fits in perfectly with the parents and
grandkids. They tell me she acts
like she has always lived there which is the best news anyone can
Dottie is a 6
month old, female Sheltie/Terrier mix.
She is a bit shy, but warms up quickly. We think another dog might be good
for her, but not crucial. She
was abandoned with her sibling and the neighbors took her in. Her brother Gordon is not socializing
well and needs a gentle home. Daisy
weighs 12 lbs, is spayed and up to date on
shots. Isn't she adorable?
Adopted *** Chili *** Adopted
Chili was turned over to us by her family as they had no funds
for her care. We got her spayed and
caught up on shots and put her on our website. Oddly enough, she did not get adopted
fast and we began to really wonder if she would. Then all of a sudden the apps started
coming in and we could hardly keep up.
Chili is settled in with her new home and doing great!!
Chili is an absolutely adorable Terrier mix of some kind! She weighs 20 lbs,
is spayed and housebroken, has all of her
shots. She is about 8 months old and
is shy when she first meets people, but becomes more relaxed and friendly
once she knows you. She loves to
play with other dogs, especially ones her size or smaller. Don't you just love this face??
