Description

Goofy and his siblings - Goose, Grace, and Ginger - were confiscated from a puppy mill operation. They are all emaciated and in need of positive interaction. The shelter that confiscated this little family knew that these dogs would need extra support in order to find their forever homes. When MAGSR got the call to take them in, we started putting plans in place to meet their needs.

Although they have survived a horrible situation, Goofy and his siblings are very loveable dogs. Definitely a little skittish, these dogs will excel with patience, leadership, and positive experiences. Goofy is a friendly guy who appreciates gentle but confident handling. He leans in for affection and has easily won over the hearts of our volunteers. We look forward to getting to know Goofy over the next few weeks. If he sounds like a good match for your family, ask to meet him. 

Updates

Goofy has been in his foster home for about a month now and is adjusting well. He is also putting on some much-needed weight. He is an absolute sweetheart and craves attention from his people. He’s a happy chap whose tail is always wagging. His life is changing for the better and he seems to know it. Goofy is an energetic, clumsy, large boy who is going to get larger—so he would probably be better placed with older children. He’s been friendly with everyone he has met and gets along with other dogs. He enjoys playing with his foster siblings and will do well with a playmate in his size range. In the yard he seems to enjoy spending as much time getting attention from people as running and playing. He is still skittish around sudden movements and loud noises, however, he has become more comfortable in his surroundings. He is crate trained and sleeps well through the night. He will retreat to his crate for comfort if he’s nervous. He enjoys walks and doesn’t pull on the leash but will benefit from the bond he will form with his people through training. In an unfamiliar place or situation, he will rely on his person for reassurance. In his foster home, he is living with two smaller female dogs to whom he is submissive. At the vets and when being bathed he was nervous but behaved well. He isn’t sure what to do with toys yet. Goofy would love a family of his own for the holidays, could that be yours?!
