Zoey is the granddaughter of the famous "Rock Star"
in our book, Under A Kansas Sky! She somehow ended up in the local pound
and Honey's original owners called me to bail her out. She stayed there for a month and although
a HUGE favorite, she did not get adopted. She is a year old Pit mix, spayed and
housebroken of about 50 lbs, and gets along great
with kids and other dogs. So far she
is behaving herself with the cats in her foster home. Isn't she too
cute for words?
Auggie is a two year
old, male, purebred Anatolian Shepherd.
He is neutered, housebroken and good with kids and dogs.....we have
no info on cats. He weighs about 110
lbs and his claim to fame is he is a couch potato
extraordinaire. Although he can run like the wind behind the gator, he
loves to chill on the couch. His
former owner bought him from a breeder but now he suspects maybe a lab got
into the act, but not sure. Whatever
he is, he is absolutely gorgeous!
Eli is a
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mix and so adorable. Weighing in at about 15 lbs, he is neutered and housebroken and gets along fine
with kids, dogs and cats. Eli is fun
and loving and about 3 yrs old.....Freckles would
be a cute name for him too!
Missy is a year
old Retriever mix of some sort...maybe a dash of Anatolian or Lab? Her six pups are now all adopted and she
is ready to have her own life and family.
She weighs about 75 lbs., will be spayed before she leaves here, and
is up on all of her shots. Missy
loves to run and play with the other dogs and has a lot of energy! She has never shown any aggression and is
a fun dog!
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 has been adopted. Please check back to see her Success
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.
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 companion dog.
