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

Adopted*** Bear (now known as Cooper) ***Adopted
When I first met Bear, I thought he would get adopted fast!
Sure enough, word spread and he got a new home in record time. His new mom has kids and grandkids to
play with him and two other dogs as siblings. Bear's name has been changed to Cooper
and he is doing great. Cooper is unusually well behaved and we are so happy
he has found his forever home!
Bear is a male, 6 month old, Golden Retriever/Shepherd
mix. He is also housebroken and
friendly with dogs and kids. He is up to date on his shots and only weighs
about 35 lbs and will not get too much bigger. The family has to move to an apartment
and cannot take him with them, but he is ready and willing to try again!
Adopted*** Dallas ***Adopted
I got a call
from a friend at a large shelter in Kansas City. They took in a beautiful male German
Shepherd who was not doing well there.
He was blind in one eye and very thin. In addition, he was hyper and needed room
to run. Could he go to SCARS and
blow off the dust on our fifty acres?
We took him in. Dallas did
run and exercise but he did not gain weight. I knew he needed a quieter environment
and some friends had been looking for a young male German Shepherd as a
playmate for their beautiful female GSD. The first meet and greet went
surprisingly well and this couple knows how to handle shepherds. So far the news is good and he is
Adopted*** Daisy ***Adopted
Just when we
were thinking the right home would never come along for Daisy, she went to
a wonderful forever home. Her new mom
is a giant breed lover and has had years of experience with St. Bernards. Daisy
has a few quirks which threw a wrench into her adoptions. The good news is she is doing great,
going out to dinner, meeting new friends and enjoying being the center of attention!
Daisy is a year and a half old, female, purebred, shorthaired St.Bernard. She
weighs about 115 lbs and is spayed, housebroken and up to date on
shots. Daisy is very friendly to
everyone! She loves attention and
requires a lot of exercise. She is
used to running freely on our 50 acres and never seems to get tired. She is well behaved in the house and does
not do anything destructive. The
fact that she is a shorthaired St Bernard means "no grooming!!!"
Adopted*** Scout ***Adopted
Scout had a
tough time. Her first family had to move and could not keep her, then her next owner didn't want her because she had
accidents so she went to yet another family. The next family had problems and she was
banished to the back yard, alone.
This is not good for a purebred Wheaton Terrier (or for any dog). She ended up being fostered and came to
us through a series of interesting events.
In 6 weeks with her foster folks, she never had an accident and has
now been adopted by a wonderful family with two little boys. Can you think of a better way to bring in
the holidays then opening your home to a new little dog?
Scout is a purebred 4 year old, female, Wheaton Terrier. She is underweight at 22 lbs, but gaining
now. She is up to date on shots and
heartworm negative. Scout was not
taken care of by her previous owner and lost weight and became heavily
matted. She has been groomed, is not
having any accidents, and is great with kids. In fact, she is sleeping with the little
boy in her foster family. Scout has
some separation anxiety but is getting better. She deserves a family who
loves her and treats her with kindness.
Adopted*** Levi and
When these two
brothers came to us, it was obvious they needed to stay together. Levi is shy and follows Lucky around.
Lucky is everyone's pal. But as time
went on, it became apparent how
difficult it is to find a home for two large dogs together. In the meantime, Levi came down with
vestibular disease. In other words,
he was dizzy!!! He is much better, but his head will always tilt a
bit. The good news is a single mom
and her two daughters love them and want them to stay together and have
adopted the boys!!! All reports are
good and Levi is managing the stairs quite well!
Levi and Lucky
are litter mates! They are four
years old, neutered and housebroken and great with kids and other
dogs. They are up to date on shots
and weigh approximately 80 lbs. each.
They would love
to go their new home together, but if this is not possible, they can go
their separate ways to wonderful and loving homes. As we all know, Labs are super great dogs
and will make a wonderful addition to a family.
Phoenix Rose was turned over to SCARS because she was too
energetic for his original family.
We were concerned that, although she loves kids, she might have too
much energy for most kids. BUT… along came a great family (Dad is
taking picture) with three small boys and they think she is great. In addition to human siblings, she has a
Boxer canine brother. As I continue
to say, we love happy endings!!!
Phoenix Rose is
an 11 month old spayed, housebroken, female American Bull Dog/Lab mix. She is playful and sweet and has no signs
at all of aggression. Her family found
her "walking the streets" and took her in and cared for her. For reasons that are not her fault, they
feel she needs a new home. She loves
kids and other dogs. Remember the
Little Rascals dog????
