Gunter is a survivor. Owned by a hoarder in the south and used for breeding purposes, Gunter's life had been filled with pain and suffering. However, when another rescue stepped up and removed Gunter and several other dogs from the premises, Gunter's life changed forever. Recognizing that Gunter would have his best chance at finding the forever home in the north, he was transferred to MAGSR. Although we are still getting to know Gunter, it is clear that even with all of the suffering that he has endured, he is a friendly guy. Gunter seems to know that the past is behind him and he is more than ready to move forward. Gunter brings joy to everyone around him with his goofy antics. Although Gunter is clearly an amazing dog, he, like all other dogs, will meet with success when provided with structure and leadership. Training will help him further develop his confidence as well as bond with his new family.

Although Gunter is clearly an incredible guy, we have unfortunately learned that he is light heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if his caretakers had kept him on monthly heartworm preventatives. Gunter has begun his heartworm treatment and is doing well. The cost of Gunter's entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Gunter is definitely worth the cost. Please donate toward Gunter's treatment, your generosity will help us save him and other dogs with medical needs. Although Gunter will need to take it slow over the next few months, he will be back to full strength once his treatment is finished. If your household is the right match for Gunter, please ask to meet him right away.


Great news for Gunther! He is heartworm free!! Gunther has successfully completed his heartworm treatment and is ready to meet his forever family.
