River is a 6 month old, female black Lab. She is spayed and seems to
be housebroken. River was seen
running across a highway and dodging traffic with no collar or tags. A passerby
managed to get her in the car, and took her home. Weeks of searching for her owner were in
vain and the local humane society had no report. Finally they decided they could not keep
her, and gave her to us. She is very
active but settles down nicely inside.
She is fine with cats and likes all dogs so all in all, this is a
Shiloh is a seven month old, female St Bernard/Shepherd
mix. She is spayed and close to
being housebroken. Shiloh is timid
but sweet and loving. She is fine with cats and other dogs, and is well
behaved in the house. Good guess for
her ultimate weight is probably 60 lbs?? Her coat
is so fluffy it looks like Angora.
She is a real cutie pie.
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 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.
Bullet is a one
year old, male, German Shepherd mix.
He weighs about 60 lbs and is neutered and appears to be
housebroken. Of course, no
guarantees on that since they are animals!
Anyway, Bullet had 24 hours before euthanasia when SCARS was asked
to pull him...fast. When I
saw his face, I knew I would not get any sleep if
we did not save him, so he came to SCARS.
The first week was a nightmare.
He was so stressed, he leaped and twirled and spun in circles.
However, with the passing of two weeks, he is clearly a great
dog! He knows a few commands, and
never has an accident. He is calming
down, thanks to lots of exercise and playing with other dogs. We have seen absolutely no aggression so
I think it is safe to say, he will make a great companion.
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
