Bandit is a one year old Rat Terrier mix weighing about 12
lbs. He is neutered and up to date
on shots, almost housebroken, loves all other dogs and has not been
around cats!! He is going to make a
fabulous companion to some lucky family or person!!
Shiloh is a five 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.
Mia is a two year old, spayed Chihuahua mix weighing about 10
lbs. She came to us in very bad
shape, but has made a wonderful turn around. She is quiet and shy, but loves people
once she gets to know you. She lives
peaceably with other dogs and cats and will make someone a loving
Mo and Minnie
Mo and Minnie
are father and daughter. He is
around 4 or 5 years old, and Minnie is two. They are purebred miniature
dachshunds and weigh around ten pounds.
They are spayed and neutered and I have no idea if they are
housebroken, although former owners said yes. However, the former owners do not seem to
know much about them! We have had them to the vet and all fixed up, and now
they are ready to go. We would like
to see them go together as they are a bonded pair, but might be able to be
adopted separately. We have not decided for sure.
This is me, Koda, in the yard at SCARS watching my family drive
away. My heart is broken. I loved them very much, but dad is
heading for South Korea (Army) and mom and my baby brother have to move in
with Grandma to a place that does not allow dogs. Maybe I should have dressed up like a
cat! Maureen grew up in a military
family and she explained that this was a hard decision for the family but
they looked for a long time to find just the right place for me. I am
neutered, housebroken, weigh around 40 lbs, am 6
months old, and am a good boy. If you would like to adopt me so that I will
have my very own family again, please call 785-256-2976. Love, Koda
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
Buck is a 6 year old purebred Boxer. He weighs 55 lbs,
is neutered and totally housebroken.
Buck can be left in the house all day and never have an accident,
nor chew anything up. He is also
very protective and will bark ferociously if any stranger comes
around. Please consider taking
this wonderful dog into your family.
Jasper is a year
old male, neutered, mix…and after careful consideration, viewing pictures,
watching him move and run, it appears Jasper is a probably a Foxhound mix
of some sort. He has the long nose of an American Bull Terrier (Target dog)
and the rest of him yells out, "I am a Foxhound!!" He has the amiable personality of the
Foxhound, weighs about 40 lbs, likes people and
loves to poke around in the high grass with his tail sticking
up. Jasper had one day to live when
we pulled him and we are so glad we did!
Ernie is a three year old mix - probably some sort of Retriever. It would be unfair to try to figure it
out without doing a MARS test, so we will just have to guess! He is around 3 years old, neutered, 38 lbs, and housebroken and has a wonderful, gentle
personality. If you are looking
for a family dog who loves kids, and will sit at your feet and watch TV he
is the dog for you.
And then there
were two......we had eleven puppies born here, and all but two (of the
prettiest) have moved on to new homes. Ben and Beatrice are so gorgeous, so
good, so gentle and so bonded that I am faced with a dilemma. How can I
separate them and yet, homes are hard to find for a bonded pair. I just cannot make them leave each other
and so I am asking all of you to help share their story in the hopes of
finding them a home together. They
are almost 6 months old, spayed, neutered and housebroken. They are gentle
and loving with kids and small dogs, and are not barkers...they are jewels.
Contact us at 785-256-2976 if interested in giving these two precious dogs
a home TOGETHER!!!
We have one tan female and one tan male left. They are five months
old and have wonderful, gentle dispositions. Here is Ben (below), the
male. They are spayed
and neutered and up to date on shots. Dad is a purebred German Shepherd and mom
is a Terrier mix of some kind. At
this point they weigh about 30 lbs so are not
going to be small!! The dispositions
of all the pups are wonderful, they are gentle and tend to be a bit shy but
We have eleven beautiful puppies who will be up for adoption
around January 18th. They will be
spayed/neutered and will have had their first round of puppy shots. Mom is
some sort of Terrier mix, and dad is a purebred German Shepherd. The mom is gentle and loving and just about as sweet
as she can be. The pups are much like mom, laid back and gentle and
PLUMP!!! There are five tan boys and six brindle females!!!
