ADOPTED 2019



NAME: BAILEY
BREED: Yorkshire Terrier (Miniature-Purebred)
GENDER: Male (neutered)
AGE: 7/17/08
COLOR: Blue & Gold
WEIGHT: 9.6#

BIO: Hi there, my name is Bailey. I was surrendered along with my pals Paisley & Snickers because my family could no longer properly take care of us. I may be a little older than usual, but I am very healthy for my age and still have quite a few good years left in me. I am completely house and crate trained, UTD on all vaccinations, heartworm negative and micro-chipped. I get along with other dogs, but I do tend to want to have control over the situation. I get along well with older children, but because I am so small (and I am a terrier) I would do best with young adults. I do walk well on a leash and do know basic commands. I would love to be your “one and only” and to spend time snuggled up on your lap watching TV or while you read. So, if you are looking for a faithful and loving companion to hang out with, I am definitely your guy. You must have a completely fenced and secure yard in order to adopt me. I am currently being fostered in Imlay City, MI.

**UPDATE: Bailey was adopted 10/12/19 by a very loving family in Wyandotte, MI.

NAME: BENJI (renamed Reggie)
BREED: Terrier mix
GENDER: Male (neutered)
AGE: Born 9/6/17
COLOR: Beige & White
WEIGHT 14#

BIO: Hi everyone, please meet Benji. Is he not the cutest little thing ever? Originally Benji was rescued from a less than desirable part of town. He had been found running loose and foraging for food on numerous occasions. A neighbor kept returning him to his former owners and warning them that he should be kept in the house or safely secured to their property. They just laughed and continued to let him run loose. After some pretty harsh storms blew through, the neighbor saw him crawl out from under a bush and decided that enough was enough and took matters into her own hands. He was a filthy matted, bedraggled mess and had to be bathed repeatedly just to find out what color he was. Benji was adopted by a gentleman with no other animals or children. Regretfully Benji needed more attention than his owner could provide him with, so Benji was returned to us after eleven months. Benji gets along great with just about any size dog and gets along well with dog friendly cats and other animals. He is very energetic and loves to play with age appropriate children and adults. Benji loves to go for walks, and loves to cuddle. Benji is UTD on all vaccinations, heartworm negative & on preventative, house & crate trained and microchipped w/lifetime registration. So if you are looking for your new best friend, please do consider Benji. Benji is not the type of dog that can be crated and left for hours without any interaction with another dog or human. Benji is a terrier and is also a young dog that needs and deserves a lot of time with his special people. He has so much love to give, and just needs someone to share it with. You must have a completely fenced and secure yard (not electric or invisible fence) in order to adopt him. Benji is being fostered in Imlay City, MI.

**UPDATE: Benji was adopted 9/29/19 by a very loving and compassionate woman in Grosse Pte Farms, MI. She knew he was the one as soon as she laid eyes on him. We received quite few applications for Benji which made the decision extremely hard - but we feel this is a perfect match.

NAME: BUFFY (renamed Lola)
BREED: Shih Tzu (mix?)
GENDER: Female (spayed)
AGE: 1/17/14
COLOR: Cream & Tan
WEIGHT: 18#

BIO: Hi everyone, please say hello to Buffy. Buffy was found running loose early December 2018. She was a wet, cold, dirty, bedraggled mess. Upon being surrendered to us, and us taking her to the vet, we found out she was quite pregnant. From the way she looked, the vet felt she had already had more than a couple of litters previously. Buffy went into labor and was having such a hard time that she was taken to our vet to be put on whelp watch. On February 1st, 2019 Buffy gave birth to five puppies, of which only four survived. Buffy was such a fantastic Momma to her puppies. She is going to make a wonderful addition to the family of whoever is lucky enough to adopt her. She is so loving and attentive. She gets along fantastic with everyone and everything. The only thing we have noticed is that she is very cautious of anyone wearing a hat, male or female. Once the hat is off, she is more comfortable around the person. She loves to snuggle, play with her stuffed toys and just be around someone. Buffy was spayed, heartworm tested, microchipped (lifetime registration) and up dated on all of her vaccinations. When Buffy went in to be spayed we found out she had a heart murmur (stage 3) and some mammary masses. We had the masses removed and biopsied and they all came back benign. We, as well as the vets, highly suspect that poor little Buffy was a puppy mill dog. While she was sedated we had her teeth cleaned and polished and some teeth extracted that the vet felt needed to be removed. There shouldn’t be any problem regarding her heart murmur, but it is advised that if she ever has to have anesthesia, that your vet be advised of the situation. After everything this little munchkin has gone through, she bounced back like a little trooper. If you are interested in giving Buffy the wonderful, loving, forever home that she is so deserving of, please fill out and submit an application. You must have a completely fenced and secure yard in order to adopt Buffy. We will be doing vet checks, home visits and meet & greets prior to any adoption. Buffy is currently being fostered in Imlay City, MI., and will be available mid-April of 2019. Buffy gets along fine with other dogs and appears to be cat friendly/tolerant. We would really like to see Buffy go to a home with no other animals because we really feel she deserves to be loved and cherished and not have to share the attention with another animal. Buffy is so happy-go-lucky, as you can tell from her pictures. She is always smiling and in a good mood. You couldn’t possibly resist her charm and personality once you have met her.

**UPDATE; Buffy has gone international!! Buffy was adopted d4/17/19 by a fantastic family in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada. Such a perfect day and such a perfect adoption. Buffy was all hugs and kisses because the home she has been so patiently waiting for was found. Buffy has adjusted to her new home and is getting along great with her new brother, Buddy.

NAME: CASH (renamed Jack)
BREED: Shih Tzu mix
GENDER: Male
AGE: Born 2/1/19
COLOR: Cream & Tan
WEIGHT: 4 #

BIO: Please meet one of Buffy’s puppies, Cash. He is the only male that Buffy had that looks just like his Momma. The red under his eyes is just “tear staining” due to the dye in the puppy food. Cash, as well as his siblings will not be available for adoption until mid-April 2019. Cash is currently the largest of the four puppies, but the others are catching up quickly. Cash loves to wrestle and play with his other siblings and with small stuffed toys. These pictures were taken at 4.5 weeks and will be updated closer to adoption day. All of Buffy’s puppies will be vaccinated (age appropriately), micro-chipped (with lifetime registration}, wormed and vet checked prior to adoption. You must have a completely fenced and secure yard in order to adopt him. You will be required to sign a spay/neuter agreement prior to adoption. Because all of the puppies are so small and will not be that big when full grown, we cannot consider families with real young children. We are looking for homes and families that are willing to make a life-long commitment to the proper raising and socializing of these puppies. They will need a “stay at home” Mom or Dad in order to do this. Puppies are like children – you only get out of them what you are willing to put into them. We will be doing vet checks, home visits and meet & greets prior to any adoption. They are currently being fostered in Almont, MI.

**UPDATE: Cash (renamed “Johnny” Cash) was adopted 3/30/19 by a wonderful family in Lexington, MI. Cash will be joining his new brothers: Jimmy (Chihuahua) and Beezer (Yorkie), so he will have playmates to keep him company. They are planning on taking Cash to senior citizen homes to spread some puppy love and brighten their spirits and days.

NAME: DEACON
BREED: Bouvier des Flanders
GENDER: Male (neutered)
AGE: 9/29/14
COLOR: Black, docked tail, natural ears
WEIGHT: 70+#

BIO: Hi there, please meet Deacon. We were contacted by Animal Control in Indiana regarding a Bouvier that was confiscated/surrendered due to an animal neglect/abuse investigation. Deacon was found in a cage in a dark garage with no air circulation, food or water, standing in his own waste because his crate was on the garage floor with no bedding. The entire garage floor was covered with months of urine and excrement. Upon further investigation they also found the decomposing body of a dog in a plastic bag. They had no idea for sure what type of dog it was because of the length of time it had been in there. We can only assume it was another Bouvier, because in the past we had rescued nine Bouviers from this same person due to neglect. She had the option of either surrendering Deacon or facing felony charges for animal abuse and neglect. Ironically she wasn’t turned in because of Deacon, it was other animals she had on the property that were being neglected. You can hardly decipher his front end from his back end in the first picture that was taken in the garage. The second picture was of the 15.6# “pelt” of hair that was shaved off of his back and top of his legs. He was matted so badly that they almost had to use a surgical blade in order to shave him down. Not even scissors would go through the mats, they had to go under them to shave them off. The last picture is what he currently looks like, now that his hair has grown out and he has put on some weight. As was the case with the other Bouviers we got off this breeder, that had gone rogue, Deacon had spent his entire life locked in a crate in the garage, never saw the outdoors, never walked on grass, never had the opportunity to experience love, companionship, understanding. He was most likely just used as a “stud” from the size and condition of his “package” when we had him neutered. Despite the horrendous living conditions that Deacon had to endure, he is just an absolute love bug. His foster Mom and foster family has been showering him with love and attention ever since he arrived at our facility. Deacon has been neat and clean in his kennel. He does not eliminate in the indoor part of his kennel, he waits to get to the outdoor part of his kennel run. It’s so sad, because Deacon would rather be outside than inside now that he has tasted freedom and fresh air. Deacon loves playing with the other dogs, absolutely loves playing with children he just loves everything life has to offer him. Deacon is crate trained, UTD on all vaccinations, heartworm negative, on heartworm preventative, and microchipped. Deacon has learned how to walk well on a leash and how to play. Deacon is a definite diamond in the rough. You will get everything out of him that you put into him PLUS more. We are looking for that special Bouvier saavy family that has the love, patience and understanding that Deacon was deprived of for so long. Deacon wants to please and has a lot of love to offer, if given the chance. You must have a completely fenced and secure yard in order to adopt Deacon. Deacon is currently being fostered in Imlay City, MI.

**UPDATE: Deacon was adopted 11/8/19 by one of our “repeat offenders” in Milan, MI. Deacon has met and joined his other Bouvier housemates, Echo and Ruff, as well as his very loving Mom. I am sure he thinks he has died and gone to heaven. We are all so very, very happy for Deacon, and could not have wished for a better home for him.

NAME: DEXTER
BREED: Border Collie
GENDER: Male (intact)
AGE: 6/14/19
COLOR: Black & White
WEIGHT: 33#

BIO: Hi there, my name is Dexter. I am a purebred Border Collie. My Dad was a registered champion, however my Mom was not papered. I was born an only child. I was taken in by a rescue in Kentucky and flown up here to Michigan in hopes of finding my forever home and family. I am still young enough that with proper love and training I can be everything you are looking for in a companion and loving friend. I love children and other dogs. My Foster Mom has cats and chickens that I am overly interested in. If they don’t move it is ok, however if they run, game on. She just knows that if we were able to mingle together, it wouldn’t be a pretty sight. The score would be: Dexter – 1. Cat and/or Chickens – 0. I would be best suited with an energetic family with a stay at home Mom or Dad. I am full of energy and definitely need a job. I would be a perfect candidate for Agility classes. It would also be fantastic if my new family had another dog that I could run and play with, and teach me the rules of my new family. Because of my age, I have not yet been neutered. My new family would be required to sign a Neuter Contract. It would be great if I could go to a family that knows and understands my breed. Border Collies are not for the faint at heart and we do require exercise, stimulation and training in order to be the best that we can be. I am completely house-trained, UTD on all vaccinations, heartworm negative and micro-chipped. You must have a completely fenced and secure yard in order to adopt me. I am currently being fostered in Almont, MI.

**UPDATE: Dexter was adopted 11/9/19 by a wonderful gentleman from Toledo, OH. Dexter not only has a new loving Dad, but also has a playmate/brother named Spike to keep him happy and show him the ropes.

NAME: LOUIE (renamed Brody)
BREED: Bouvier des Flanders
GENDER: Male (neutered)
AGE: 10/15/18
COLOR: Black, docked and cropped
WEIGHT: 72#

BIO: Hi there, my name is Louie. I was surrendered by my family because there just wasn’t enough room for me to run and play and I was very unhappy with my living arrangements. My Mom and Dad wanted the very best for me and because they were unable to provide it, they wanted me to go to that special family that could. I get along fantastic with other dogs and absolutely love to play with children. I do walk well on a leash and do know basic commands. Because I am so young and bouncy it is not recommended that my new family has small children that I could easily and accidently knock over. I am housetrained, UTD on all vaccinations, heartworm negative and on preventative and micro-chipped. I will not be available for adoption until the end of August, first part of September because I do have to be neutered and have time to recover. My foster Mom says that I am an absolute love and knows that I will make that special family very happy to have adopted me. If you are looking for a new best friend, faithful and loving companion, I am definitely your guy. You must have a completely fenced and secure yard in order to adopt Louie. We will be doing vet checks, home visits and meet & greets prior to any adoption. Louie is currently being fostered in Imlay City, MI.
**UPDATE: Today, 9/25/19, was the day that Louie has been patiently waiting for. His new “Forever Mom” flew in from Denver, CO, with a large crate, rented a mini-van and came to pick up her new baby. It was love at first sight. Louie (renamed Brody) was on his new Mom like bees on honey. Louie/Brody will be chilling with his new Mom’s sister’s family and will be heading back to Colorado on Friday to meet his new brother Koda.. This is the fourth Bouvier that his new Mom has adopted from us.

NAME: MAGGIE
Breed: Shih Tzu
GENDER: Female (spayed)
AGE: Born 5/31/13
COLOR: White, Black, Gray
WEIGHT: 12.2#

BIO: Hi everyone, my name is Maggie. I was surrendered to SCBR along with my companion, Zoe, because my elderly parents could no longer take care of us. I am a very friendly little girl once given the opportunity to warm up to you. I am UTD on all vaccinations, heartworm negative, house/crate & paper trained and microchipped with lifetime registration. I get along with other dogs, cats, children and adults. I am a little skittish and will cower and react to quick or unexpected movements and loud noises. Because of that I would be best suited in a quiet family without small children. I do love attention and to be held, but do not do well with rough-housing. I ride well in a car and walk well on a leash. So, if you are looking for a fairly laid back companion to hold, snuggle and love – I could just be your girl. The top picture is when I first came in, the bottom is after I was cleaned up a little. I am being fostered in Imlay City, MI. You must have a completely fenced and secure yard in order to adopt me.

**UPDATE: Maggie was adopted 1/26/19 by a very loving family in Southfield, MI. It was love at first sight.

NAME: ZEUS
BREED: Labrador Retriever, (Boxer) mix
GENDER: Male (neutered)
AGE: 8/25/10
COLOR: Black w/white markings
WEIGHT: 75#

BIO: Hi everyone, please meet Zeus. Zeus was surrendered to us because his owner had to move to the UK and was unable to take him with her. Zeus lived most of his life here in Michigan and his owner had him since he was eight weeks old. A year ago Zeus moved to Kentucky where he thought he would remain forever with his loving Mom. She was just devastated that she could not bring her baby back with her to the UK. A lifelong friend of hers reached out to us to see if we could possibly take him in. Poor Zeus was so devastated to leave his Mom that he completely shut down once he arrived. He didn’t want to eat and just quivered in his kennel run for the first couple of days. Zeus’ Foster Mom has made a remarkable transformation since Zeus arrived with us. He just needed reassurance and a whole lot of TLC to turn him around. Zeus gets along fantastic with children and other dogs. Zeus is housetrained, heartworm negative, micro-chipped and current on all vaccinations. Zeus’ Foster Mom says that he is an absolute love. He loves going for walks and is very easy to handle on leash. Zeus loves to play with her kids and other dogs. He is an absolute love-bug and is so willing and eager to please. He loves to sleep with a human pillow on his dog bed and lines up each one of his toys on his pillow before he goes to sleep. Zeus has such loving and soulful eyes, he just melts your heart as soon as you meet him. So if you are looking for the perfect friend and companion, please consider Zeus. He just wants to be the missing puzzle piece in your life. You must have a completely fenced and secure yard in order to adopt Zeus. We will be doing vet checks, home visits and meet & greets prior to any adoption. Zeus is currently being fostered in Imlay City, MI.

**UPDATE: Zeus was adopted 9/7/19 by a wonderful young couple in Ann Arbor, MI. We just knew that the right family would come along that would love and appreciate Zeus for all the wonderful qualities he had to offer. It was love at first sight all the way around.
