Shy is a survivor. Owned by a hoarder in the south and used to breed puppies, Shy's life had been filled with pain and suffering. However, when another rescue stepped up and removed Shy and several other dogs from the premises, Shy's life changed forever. Recognizing that Shy would have her best chance at finding the forever home in another region, she was transferred to MAGSR. Although we are still getting to know Shy, it is clear that even with all the suffering she has endured she is a sweet but very timid dog. Shy will thrive in a stable, confident, and patient household. This will provide her with love, guidance and leadership needed to help her develop confidence. As we have the opportunity to learn more about Shy, we will post updates. If Shy sounds like a fit for your household, please ask to meet her today. 

Update: Shy's foster is happy to report that she has made the transition from living in a horrible hoarding situation to living in a home quite nicely.  Shy is housebroken, crate trained and walks nicely on the leash.  Shy still gets startled easy as she is learning to trust her humans and will retreat to her crate as her safe place.  Shy is a sweet loving dog, has shown no aggression and gets along with the resident dog.  As Shy puts her horrible past behind her we feel she will blossom and be an outstanding addition to any family.
