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.
Fiona has been
an amazing transformation since she came here. She had spent her three years locked in a
kennel, and she was not socialized upon arrival. Months later, she is
everyone's favorite. She is loving
and gentle, but still a bit submissive.
She walks on a leash well and appears to be housebroken. She is spayed, up to date on shots and
gentle with everyone. Isn't she gorgeous???
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.
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!
Sammy is now 8 months old and
housebroken. He loves other dogs, is
fine with cats, energetic outside but settles down nicely inside. He has a gorgeous black, glossy lab coat
and weighs about 40 pounds. Sammy will be such a great companion for some family.!! (he is neutered
Sammy is a six month old Lab mix...and a live wire! He is only 35-40 lbs, neutered and
housebroken. Sammy gets along great
with dogs and cats (and kids) and likes to do the "high
jump!" He calms down nicely in
the house but is on the go outside.
We think he is a mix of a jumping jack, a kangaroo and a lab!! Throw a ball for him and he will bring it
back to you until the cows come home.
Eve has been adopted. Check back to see her Success Story.
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.
This dog is around 2 years old and neutered. He weighs 60 lbs, is a German Shepherd
mix and when I first saw him, it was because he was going to be
euthanized in less than 24 hrs.
SCARS was asked, really begged, to tag him and save him, which we
did. Here is the news so far. He is friendly with other dogs, not food
aggressive, not toy aggressive, but does bark at other dogs through a
fence. He is not a fence jumper, but
can escape certain kennels. He runs
on the 50 acres here, but has avoided swimming so far. He is also very beautiful with gold in
his coat. We have named him Boots
because of his white feet. I really think he will make a wonderful
