(October to December)
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 2010.

Adopted*** Russ and
Charlotte (now known as Russ and Lettie) ***Adopted
Russ and Charlotte are now Russ
A wonderful family in Kansas City decided they should not be
separated, had a family conference and took them both. So far they are doing great. It is quite an adjustment to go from no
dogs to two humongous Rottweilers. The good thing is both dogs are gentle giants which is good for the three daughters in
the family. Other than a wild walk
with dad who thought he could take both on a leash at once, and one ended
up in a neighbors yard, all is well. This is a fabulous Christmas present for
all of us since these two were on death row and now in the lap of luxury.
We recently took two gorgeous purebred Rottweilers
from a high kill shelter in Kansas City. I got a call on Saturday night
from KC telling us that they would be put down on Monday. The boy is 4 yrs old, neutered and weighs
100 lbs. The female is 2 yrs old and
weighs 80 lbs. They are both up to
date on shots and have tested heartworm negative. These two are wonderful dogs...they are
both gentle giants. They need some
work leash training as they flop down on their backs when you put a leash
on them – but they will slowly follow you in time. They exhibit absolutely no aggression
towards people or other dogs. We have no information on how they deal with
cats. We would love for them to go
together, but will let them be adopted separately if good homes come
Adopted*** Nessa ***Adopted
has been adopted! Here’s a note from
her new family:
“Just wanted to
give you an update of Nessa. She has become one of
the family. We are really enjoying her and she
enjoys us all too. Good thing we have a king size bed. She is a bed hog. We
love her a lot. Thank you so much for introducing her to us. She truly is
one of the family.”
Nessa is a female, Whippet/Terrier mix(?). She is up
to date on shots and will be getting spayed next week. She weighs 35 lbs and gets along well with other dogs but has not
been around many kids. We think Nessa would make
a great watch dog! She has been in a
crate for many, many hours so her new found freedom and exercise will give
us more information as time goes by.
Adopted*** Thor ***Adopted
One Saturday night I recieved a call from a woman trying to help save some
dogs at a high kill shelter in KC. She
sent me a picture of a sweet looking Rottie
(right) who had two days left. We
took him in and my foster fell in love with him and actually found him
a great home in Lincoln, Nebraska!!
Things fell together so well - he is now happy in his new home and
has a little girl to play with (left). His new name is
Thor, and believe me, he was nabbed from the brink of death just in
the nick of time.
Adopted*** Lillie ***Adopted
Lillie has gone to a family who recently lost a dog that their daughter
misses her very much. They saw
Lillie's picture and thought she would be perfect for them. She is getting
along great and the whole family just loves
Lillie is a beautiful, female, German Shepherd mix. She is 2 yrs old, housebroken, weighs 50
lbs, is spayed, and up to date on shots.
Lillie is heartworm negative and trained to obey certain
commands. Her owner is moving to
Germany and no one would take her except SCARS. She gets along well with kids and other
dogs and we feel she is just a wonderful dog and could not let her go to a
high kill shelter and risk losing this precious gal.
Adopted*** Kobe ***Adopted
Merry Christmas 2010, Kobe
Kobe has found a wonderful home and is all settled in on a 160 acre
farm with lots of family and two little dogs to play with. He gets to go out
for breakfast every morning with dad and visit with the neighbors. His
afternoons are busy running around the country with his new family and he
chases frisbees and balls endlessly. We had two
wonderful homes for Kobe, a dream for rescues, and picking the best was
hard. We all conferred and agreed he needed lots of exercise and a family
home all day. His new name is Waco and alls well
that ends well.
Kobe is an 8 month old, male, American Bulldog. He is neutered, 70 lbs, heartworm
negative, and up to date on shots.
He is also good with other dogs and kids. Kobe's owner died leaving
him without a place of his own. The
family began searching for a good rescue who would take him in and when we
saw his picture, we were hooked.
Kobe is strong and needs lots of exercise! He will catch a ball and bring it back to
you until you fall over in exhaustion and he will still be going. Isn't he
Adopted*** Highway ***Adopted
Highway went from being beaten on a daily basis to a home where
he is loved and cherished. Here he
is with his first two moms from SCARS who went to visit him to today at his
forever home. It has now been a year
and his recovery is complete. What a Christmas gift............
Here’s a recent
update on Highway from his new family. “He is doing FABULOUS! He also
has a tag with his name and address/phone number engraved on it now.
We love him so very much and know he is the perfect dog for us.
He has really adjusted well and loves to snuggle with us on the couch
& in bed. It's so nice to have a nap partner now. We could not be
Highway had a very rough life
before coming to Scars. He bore the
signs of physical abuse that had been going on for some time. His healing was slow but he came around
to being a loving and exciting member of the SCARS family. I was not sure anyone would ever want to
take on this big boy with all of his energy and odd traits. The night we
had the volunteer pool party, a great family fell in love with him. They
even moved to a bigger house with a yard so they could adopt him. Highway waited patiently for his new home
and he finally "moved in" last week. The news from the front is
he is happy and content. He even "sneaks under the covers" in the
middle of the night. He will keep this family warm in the winter!!
Highway is a 2 year old, male,
neutered, Rottweiler/Shepherd mix. He is almost housebroken but not quite
there yet. He is up to date on shots
and heartworm negative. Highway weighs
about 60 lbs and loves people and other dogs. He is tormented daily by the
puppies here who jump up and down on his
head!! He was the victim of severe
physical abuse but has maintained his gentle, loving disposition.
Adopted*** Sasha ***Adopted
Sasha has had a tough time but
we think she is finally home! Her
dad is going to law school and mom is a registered nurse, so her needs will
be covered should she need legal or medical help! The person who rescued her after finding
her half starved kept her briefly but was not equipped to deal with her
problems and took her to a foster in a neighboring county. The foster kept her until they had to go
on vacation and we took her in and she was adopted by a family who
kept her about 24 hours. They
decided they didn't want her and back she came to SCARS. So, many months after her rescue she has
finally found a permanent home. They
love her despite the fact she has torn up their living room and set off the
burglar alarm twice and brought the police over. When the new dad said "but she is
our girl" I told him I needed a hundred homes like his. He said "dogs are not disposable
items." Amen to that. Sasha, you really lucked out!
Sasha came to us as a starvation
case. She has turned into a healthy,
beautiful and loving dog. She is a two year old, (German?) Shepherd mix, is
housebroken, spayed and up to date on shots. She weighs around 50 lbs and
here is the great thing about her....she is so calm!! Sasha just wants to be a gentle and
loving companion. She loves kids and
other dogs. We think she knows how lucky she is to be alive.
