Joey is a 40 lb, male, Aussie/Husky mix. He is neutered and used to be housebroken
in his old home but not here!! He
needs to gain weight, but he has tons of energy, loves to play and is
great with kids and other dogs. (no info on cats, we do not have
cats here, but there is no aggression with him at all )
Mountain Feist pups
These two adorable 6 month old Mountain Feist pups are a bonded
pair! They are energetic and loving,
and get along with dogs and cats. They are neutered and up to date on
shots and ready for a new home. The
maximum weight will only be 30-35 lbs which is a
Daisy is a 5
year old, female Golden Retriever mix.
She is spayed, housebroken, and up to date on shots. Daisy's owner passed away and no one in
the family was able to keep her.
She would work best as an only dog although she gets along well with
other dogs, but has to be fed separately at this point. Daisy needs
exercise to trim off a few fluffy pounds and wants to be somebody's baby!!
Olivia is a 7
month old, female, Husky/Shepherd mix.
She is spayed and up to date on shots but very timid. She is afraid of cats and big dogs, but
shows no aggression at all. Olivia
weighs about 50 lbs and is lean. She takes time to gain her trust and
shakes when confronted with new situations.
She will thrive in a quiet home with a lot of attention.
Petunia and Nellie
Petunia is a
6 lb Deer Head Chihuahua who is spayed
and up to date on shots. She does not seem to be housebroken yet, but with
patience I am sure she will come around.
Petunia is not nippy like some Chihuahuas and is very loving and
sweet. Isn't she adorable??
Petunia and Daisy, now known as Nellie, have become a bonded
pair and we would like for them to be adopted together. Nellie is a 10 lb Coton de Tulear. She is
gentle and sweet and 6 years old. Until Petunia came along, Nellie was
too scared of everyone and everything but now she is blooming. However, she
follows Nellie everywhere and has gained her self
Prolo is an odd name, for sure.
However, he was rescued by the staff of an orthopedic clinic and
this is a shot they give to restart your system. Hence the name meaning a new start to his
ran into the street and was hit by a car and his leg severely
injured. Upon returning to his
home, his owner dragged him and blamed him for being hit, closed the
door and left him outside bleeding profusely. Animal Control was called and the owner
said he was a stray. He ended up
in the local shelter but before they could diagnose his leg, my husband
intervened and said SCARS would accept him.
What followed has been about 12 trips to the vet and emergency
clinic where his leg has been bandaged and cleaned, the bone still
visible. However, he is mending well
and we hope he will be up and at ‘em soon. Prolo is a
Lab/Pit mix who is about two years old and neutered. He has no aggression at all and loves
people and all sizes of dogs. (NO information on cats) He weighs about 70 lbs
and is very strong. He would do well
on a harness and or a gentle lead collar.
We all love this boy and are so glad he has been saved/.
Charlie is a neutered, 12 lb, male Minpin mix. He
has survived rat poison, pancreatitis and come out of it healthy and
strong. Charlie loves to play, play,
play and runs around with other dogs here as if each one is his
best friend. He is fine with cats
and kids and is about 2 years old.
Charlie is Mr. Personality… you will love him!
Bentley and Scruffy
and Scruffy (right) are two of what we call the "Freedom
Five." They were in a condemned
house for months on end, with a vat of dry food and water full of
rats. Needless to say, it was a
nightmare life. But we have had them
here for two months and they are adjusting well. Bentley is probably a Fox Hound mix, 40 lbs, neutered and probably not housebroken. Scruffy is some sort of male, Wirehaired
Terrier mix, 40 lbs, neutered and probably
not housebroken either. They are
loving and sweet but not young. We
are guessing their ages to be around 6 or 7 years old. Both would be fine in the country or just
a quiet life with a family who will love them. They do not have to be together! Please consider one of them as you will
be adopting a true rescue.
recovering from surgery. A one year
old, has been spayed and her cherry eye removed. She loves to run and play in spite of her
deformed leg and shoulder, which is a birth defect. She weighs 12 lbs and loves everyone. It will take a patient home for
her with another fun dog.
Oreo: male from
abandoned , rat infested home
Blondie: 6 year
old spayed female who was left in the rat infested home and seems to be the
friendliest of these three. She is
timid around strangers and would require patience and time to heal.
