Gemma and her sister, Requi, lived with a family who got tired of having dogs so they left them outside leaving the dogs with limited resources. As if this wasn't hard enough, the family then decided to move away and abandoned the girls along with two other dogs on the property. Another rescue group heard about these traumatized pups and decided to try and intervene. That's when MAGSR got a call. As MAGSR has a policy of never leaving families behind, we brought all 4 dogs to safety. Fortunately, MAGSR was able to work with other rescues to find safe homes for the two additional dogs on the property.

Gemma is a lovely girl. In her previous home, she lived with kids and other dogs. It was reported that she greatly enjoyed the children in her home. Although Gemma has clearly suffered at the hands of her previous family, she has been friendly and interactive with the volunteers she has met. Our volunteers have been very impressed with her sweet and stable nature. Unfortunately, Gemma has tested heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if her previous family had kept her on monthly heartworm preventatives. Gemma is in the beginning stages of her heartworm treatment; however, the cost of her entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Gemma is definitely worth the cost.  Please donate toward her treatment, your generosity will help us save her and other dogs with medical needs.  Although Gemma will need to take it slow over the next few months, she will be back to full strength once her treatment is finished.

Gemma is looking for a home that will love and commit to her for a lifetime. Could that be with you?
