Hello SCARS! First of all we love the new look of the website. I visit it at least once a day. It has become a habit and I try to help by letting people know about SCARS and giving them the website address.
Cain & Abel are soon turning 9 months old and weigh 70+ lbs each. We did not expect them to get this big as the vet told us before that they look like they are going to be medium sized dogs (40lbs according to the vet), given the fact that they are beagle/shepherd mix. But 50lbs later (they were around 20lbs when we adopted them!) they look like they are still growing.
They finished their puppy class at DOGSPAW and we absolutely fell in love with that training facility, unfortunately, Abel gets car sick whenever he's in the truck, making it stressful for him to travel back and forth from our house (Southside) to the Dogspaw (Northside). The boys just finished their Obedience Level 1 (we found a place close to where we live, thank God!) and are getting ready for their Level 2. We are also planning on enrolling them to Agility Classes.
They are doing really good and are both very healthy. They turned out to be really well behaved dogs and sooooo good with kids. Their appearance have changed alot, their coats are lighter than they used to be.
Cain & Abel are now fully housebroken and can now be trusted to have a free run in the house. I've managed to train them to use the bell as a signal when they need to go out. They've been to the off leash park many times as well and are very well socialized with other dogs and people as well. =)
I am attaching the pictures of the two. If you wish to include it to your LOOK AT US NOW page, please feel free to do so. Thanks so much for giving us the chance to have these wonderful puppies in our lives.

Hi SCARS! Here are some pictures of the pups, Abel & Cain (aka Heffer & Wrangler). They are 5 months old now and they've been with us for three months. They finished their PUPPY Class last July and they are now currently attending their Obedience Level 1 Class. They've grown so much! They are both smart dogs and are both doing great with their training. They've completed all their vaccinations and are scheduled to have their neutering surgery at the end of September. Both are crate trained, very sociable and great with kids. We also just finished building a doghouse for them in our backyard.
Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to give these wonderful puppies their forever home.

Hi there! Just to keep you guys posted about the pups, they are now 15 weeks old and are both doing great. We went to the Vet last wednesday for their final shots. It was a stressful day for the boys as they both received two shots, one intra nasal and their monthly deworming pill. But they were both great and none of them even noticed that they were being vaccinated.
They finally finished their puppy class last week and we are now waiting for September to have their next class, the Obedience one. They are both smart pups and they already know a lot of tricks. We are still working on the loose leash walking but other than that everything is going great! They've grown so much since the first day we got them. They tripled their weight in 7 weeks! Abel (Heffer) has motion sickness and the vet prescribed some gravol for him to take before we go for a car ride. Cain does not show any motion sickness since the first car ride.
Also, as part of the adoption policy, they are booked for their neutering surgery come September. The Whitemud Creek Vet Clinic said they have to come for a vet visit two weeks prior, to do some test with them and to prepare them for the upcoming surgery.
Thanks a lot and have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Andrea! I saw you on Global TV today with two of your dogs that are up for adoption. I think its really good that SCARS is finally getting the city's attention.
Cain & Abel (aka Wrangler & Heffer) are getting bigger each day. We took them to the vet last weekend and they weigh twice the size they were when they first visited the vet for their first shot, we took them to the same vet who checked them a month ago this time for their second shot, I believe just a day before we brought them home. And the vet told us that they are in perfect health. Today, they weigh more than 25 lbs each at 12 weeks. They know a lot of tricks already, they learned all these just a week after we adopted them (working at home made this easy for us, as I was able to give the boys a lot of attention and time plus they are naturally smart!!!). Both are also crate & potty trained. Its amazing how they progress each day. Currently, they are only two weeks away from graduating in their PUPPY CLASS. Nicole (Dogspaw) has been extremely helpful to us. We learned so much from her with regards to raising our pups.
Thanks again. I can never thank SCARS enough for all they joy that Cain & Abel has brought into our lives.
I am also attaching a copy of their picture and you have our permission to post it in your website if you will choose to do so.
Take care & have a good night!
