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!
Sara Heart is a purebred coonhound. She is housebroken and spayed and gets
along great with other dogs.
Sometimes she is happy being a couch potato, but she also loves to
play with her doggie pals. She
weighs about 50 lbs and is probably better off
not being adopted to a family with small children as they tend to make her
nervous. Isnt she gorgeous???
two blue merle Australian Shepherds are not only beautiful, but gentle and
timid. The male has the longer hair
and he is deaf, but can see. The
female can see and hear, which is not always the case
with blue eyed, white dogs.
They are best buddies, but would be fine if separated, as long as
they each had another dog to play with.
They need work!! They are coming
along slowly on a leash, but will take a patient and experienced owner to
bring them completely around to the dogs they need to be! They weigh about 50 lbs
each and are spayed and neutered.
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 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
