ChetChetChetChetChetChetChetChetChetChetChet
DESCRIPTION:

Chet was picked up as a stray in MD.  He waited at the shelter for his family but no one came to claim him. Chet has put that sad life behind him and is now ready for his forever family- one who will never abandon him.

Updates:
  • Chet is understandably confused after being returned due to no fault of his own.  Chet is a nice dog, pretty easy to handle and corrects pretty easily. Chet appears to be responsive and eager to please.  If Chet sounds like he could be a good match for your family, please ask to meet him.

  • Chet has fun with his girlfriends

  • Chet is a complete sweetie! He loves all people and getting belly rubs. Chet is a big, strong boy who has greatly improved his leash manners and knows that it is not appropriate to pull on the leash when he walked.  Chet absolutely loves going for walks!  He is currently learning how to act properly when we come across other dogs on walks by not pulling and barking.  Chet loves being the only dog in his foster home and would prefer to keep it that way when adopted. He seems to really enjoy time out on the deck just siting and people watching.  He is crate trained during the day and gets free roam of the house at night when he sleeps.  He has excellent house manners and makes no attempt to get into anything that he shouldn't.  If Chet sounds like the perfect pup for your family, ask to meet him now.

Foxy
FoxyFoxyFoxyFoxyFoxyFoxyFoxyFoxyFoxyFoxyFoxyFoxyFoxyFoxy
DESCRIPTION:

Foxy landed herself in a shelter after her family would not care for her or comply with animal control.  She waited at the Animal Shelter for a month, hoping her former owners would fix their fence and bring her home, but they never did. Foxy is an energetic friendly little girl whose enthusiasm for walks and play makes her seem much younger than five. Sweet Foxy is ready for a forever home that will give her lots of walks and belly rubs. Foxy needs a patient owner as she is understandably anxious and will need someone to set calm boundaries for her, her while she settles into home life again.

Foxy loves meeting new people. She has been wonderful with children and responded to a child stepping on her paw by crying and showing her belly. She was clearly housebroken, but after such a long time in a kennel she should stay on a leash or crate inside, until she develops a routine of going outside. Foxy knows basic commands and rides nicely in a car. She is working on not pulling on a leash, but is not too hard to walk because she pays attention her handler.  Foxy is pushy, barky, and very forward with other dogs. She is very frightened if a dog approached her while she is crated. Foxy will need to work on socialization with dogs as she greets other dogs by jumping on them. Foxy could live with another dog who does not want to dominate her and enjoys energetic play. Taking her to obedience class outside would be ideal, so she can learn to listen around other dogs, while having some space. Foxy is good in her foster house. She hasn’t chewed anything inappropriate and doesn’t mess with food on the counter or bother the trash. She is learning to stay off the couch and would certainly try to join her new owner in bed for a cuddle, if not instructed otherwise.

Foxy would be a great fit for someone who lives in an urban/suburban setting. She would be fine in an apartment. Foxy needs to be on a leash at all times outside; she has jumped a four-foot fence, for fun, and is clearly willing to dig a tunnel if bored.  Foxy is going to be someone’s shadow and very best friend.  If Foxy sounds like a good fit for your family, please ask to meet her.

Updates:
  • Foxy has been in her foster home for a month now and loves being a pet, who lives indoors with her family and not left alone in the yard. Although she has a prior history of running, it seems likely that she was running away because she was bored and lonely. She does not try to rush out of doors or escape from the car. she is very committed to being with her family at all times. her only attempts to get out of the house have been to jump in the car and make sure that she's not left behind on the trip.  Foxy is very agile and smart. She demonstrates good sensibilities about barking at strangers on the property, but not at every single person who passes the house on the sidewalk.  

    Foxy absolutely adores children and has happily attended all sorts of sporting events and made lots of friends. She enjoys getting baths and has a remarkable amount of energy for a five-year-old dog. Foxy had recurrent ear infections in her prior life, which caused scar tissue buildup in one of her ears. She requires a weekly ear cleaning, which can be done at home with an affordable medication. She loves having her ears cleaned and every other imaginable kind of touching.  

     

    She's getting along great with the resident dog, who is a super laid-back male. But she needs training to learn to not bark at other dogs. In just a month she reliably comes when she is called, sits when told to, and will drop something on command – unless it's a slice of pizza.  If you love pizza; have always wanted a stalker who sits and pants, just outside of the bathroom door; and enjoy dogs in Halloween costumes Foxy is your girl.

Khloe was in a shelter hoping someone would give her a second chance at life.  That we did, but we are only the first step on her journey, a new family will complete that journey.  She is emaciated, but has been putting on weight with the help of good nutrition and regular meals.  She is a nice girl who just needs someone that will care for and love her.  Could that be you?

Updates:
  • Khloe has been in her foster home for a week now and is settling in nicely and starting to build up her confidence.  Khloe is very smart and she's picking up obedience commands quickly, but she's still working on her focus because she can be easily distracted by her surroundings.  If Khloe sounds like a dog that may work well in your family, please ask to meet her.

AprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilApril
DESCRIPTION:

April's life is forever changed, thanks to those who saved her from horrid and unsafe living conditions.  It is amazing that with all that April has endured she is so incredibly sweet and wants to be loved and properly cared for.  April deserves a family who will provide a wonderful life for her, one full of love and a commitment for her lifetime.  

Updates:
  • Lovely April is a remarkable girl. Like many pups before her, April seems to know she has been rescued and will never be subjected to the horrible conditions from which she survived. She enjoys the company of everyone she meets and seems grateful to anyone who notices her. April tends to take most things in stride. Having to learn the ins and outs of a new home can be unnerving; however, April seems excited to have the opportunity to enjoy the good life. She has discovered the joy of a good bone, soft bed, and plenty of toys. Living with other dogs, April is slowly learning the ins and outs of pack life. We are very impressed with her playful nature. April is goofy yet affectionate. She will happily sit for as long as you'll allow while you rub her beautiful ears. If this amazingly girl sounds like a match for your family, please inquire about her today.

Karma
KarmaKarmaKarmaKarmaKarmaKarmaKarmaKarmaKarmaKarmaKarmaKarmaKarma
DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Karma came to MAGSR underweight and from a very sad situation.  Karma previously lived in a hoarding situation with 14 other dogs.  Karma was underfed and used for breeding.  Because of all that Karma has endured, she is confused and just needs to learn to trust and know she'll be well taken care of.  Now that MAGSR has Karma, we hope she will quickly adjust and learn that she will receive regular meals, attention, and proper socialization. If Karma sounds like the right dog for your household, please ask about her today.

Care for these hoarding rescues is putting a severe strain on MAGSR's resources. Donations towards their treatment would be greatly appreciated, this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs.

Updates:
  • Sadly, sweet Karma tested heartworm positive when seen by a MAGSR vet, she obviously was not kept on monthly Heartworm Preventatives which would have protected her.  She is currently undergoing heartworm treatment to rid her body of Heartworms so that she may enjoy many more years of life.  Treatment is expensive but Karma is certainly worth the cost. 

    Donations towards her treatment would be greatly appreciated, this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs

  • Karma has settled in nicely to her foster home and is enjoying her new life while she awaits her forever home.  She enjoys hanging out with her foster brothers and sisters, getting out for her short walks, and giving lots of kisses and tail wags to whomever she can reach.  Karma has a sweet and playful personality that gets along with kids and other dogs. 

    Also, Karma’s heartworm treatment is going well.  Treatment is relatively easy to do, it just takes a few months. It requires an oral antibiotic with her meals for the first month, and three injections over the course of last two months.  After receiving the injections, she is put on crate restriction to limit activity and help her recovery.  This crate restriction is actually a great time to adopt the dog, as it allows the dog to get used to their new home in a calm environment and to slowly introduce freedom in the house.  Karma is available for adoption while she’s receiving treatment, so if you’re interested in meeting this sweet girl, contact your adoption coordinator today!

  • Sweet Karma was returned to MAGSR through no fault of her own - her family was not able to keep her.  Karma is finishing up her heartworm treatment and she has been wonderful through it during her crate restriction.  Karma is very anxious to be adopted by a family who will commit to her for her life and to start her life heartworm free.  If snuggles and kisses sound like something you're looking for, then Karma may be a good fit for your family, so please ask to meet her now.

Kaz
KazKazKazKazKazKazKazKaz & KyleneKaz & KyleneKaz & KyleneKaz & KyleneKaz & KyleneKaz & KyleneKazKazKazKazKazKaz
DESCRIPTION:

Kaz, Kylene, and Kyrie are siblings. All three dogs were turned into a shelter. All  are very nice dogs. Kaz is pretty laid back and walks pretty well on a leash. He does enjoy the company of his sisters during his walk. Kaz would be a great companion dog for any family.

Updates:
  • My foster mom tells me I am a gentle giant and a wise soul. When you look into my eyes you immediately feel a deep connection with me. I maybe 6 years old but I still have a spring in my step and will be bounding around when I greet you at the door. If foster mom is not quick enough to get me leashed up to go outside I will let her know I am excited with a few playful barks. I am not fond of toys but will enjoy a marrow bone till it is thoroughly licked clean. I love my sister Kylene so much I will let her steal my bones when I am not looking.  Foster mom says I am the most gentle and easy going dog she has had the pleasure to foster. One of my favorite things to do is roll on my back and shimmy myself around either in the grass or on the carpet. I will flop myself on my back just to get some belly rubs. I sleep peacefully on my 42 inch orthopedic bed and would enjoy nothing more than to have someone to spend the rest of my life with.

  • Unfortunately Kaz was returned to MAGSR after two years because his owners could no longer care for him.  Kaz is having some difficulty getting up and down stairs and will be seen by a MAGSR vet to see if there is any relief that can be provided to this sweet boy. Otherwise, Kaz is the epitome of the gentlest giant and gets along with kids, dogs and cats of all sizes and ages.  In his previous home, Kaz would let the kitty snuggle up next to him for warmth and security.  Kaz is a very easy going boy that just wants somewhere soft to lay his head.  He is housebroken and can be trusted to free roam the house.  Kaz will follow his human where ever they go even if that means he has to scale the steps to get there. His favorite past time is lounging in sun and rolling on his back for belly rubs. He enjoys sleeping on his back with all 4 paws in the air.  Kaz loves car rides and thrives on attention and affection from everyone around him.  If you would like to meet a sweet senior, please ask to meet Kaz!

DESCRIPTION:

Roxanne was confiscated from her person due to improper care and neglect.  She waited patiently in a shelter to begin a new life, as there was a court case.  Thankfully the case was won in Roxanne's favor and she is now in our care looking for her forever family.  Roxanne has had no training or guidance, she is a blank slate in that regard.  She is also has no idea what to do with a leash on and will put up some resistance, our volunteers are working with her.  Training is essential for Roxanne and her new family, along with structure and guidance.  She is a diamond in the rough, but with training she will shine bright.

Mica
MicaMicaMica
DESCRIPTION:

Mica has not had a good life up to this point.  She spent all of her time in a crate, most likely having never been outside.  She has no idea what a leash is which can make her uneasy.  She enjoys human companionship but can become overwhelmed.  Mica is a blank slate, she has so much to learn about people and the world.  She will need someone with patience to help her build her confidence and to introduce her to the world.  She is underweight but with regular, nutritious meals she will be in tiptop shape in no time.  Mica deserves the chance to know love,  proper care and to just be a puppy....won't  you give her that?

Updates:
  • Mica was seen by a specialist as we noticed one of her hips was protruding.  Sadly, Mica sustained trauma prior to coming into our care and the hip did not heal properly.  She will require FHO surgery in order to correct the hip, for which MAGSR will pay.  Some good new is, her other hip is just fine.

DESCRIPTION:

Little Miss Abby is such a charmer!   Abby may not be as big in physical stature as her GSD foster siblings (don’t tell her that though!) but this little girl has a heart as big as she thinks she is, and the energy, drive, and enthusiasm to match.   Abby has a bubbly personality and loves meeting all new people, and she gets along splendidly with big dogs (like her!) that are familiar to her, however she can get quite stimulated around smaller dogs.  Abby is very well behaved at home, and is very happy being out and about, running along with her foster on his bike, and going anywhere in the car.   She loves going to training class and has really ramped up on her obedience and manners, where she especially enjoys running the obstacle course.  Abby is a whole lot of dog in a small package, is as sweet as can be, and she is guaranteed to bring a great big smile to your face.  Please ask to meet Abby if she sounds like she might be the dog for you!

Mia
MiaMiaMiaMia
DESCRIPTION:

Mia was adopted from our rescue when she was just a puppy in 2014.  Sadly, through no fault of her own, her adopter returned her to MAGSR.  As you can imagine, Mia’s world as she knew it has been turned upside down.  She is currently in a loving foster home with her foster family helping her with the adjustment. Mia’s foster reports that Mia is adjusting nicely to her foster family and resident dog, is calm and loves the kids.  Mia is crate trained, walks well on a leash and knows her basic commands.  If a laid back dog is what your family is looking for, please ask to meet Mia.

Updates:
  • Mia's foster reports that she is the perfect companion dog. Mia is content to be where her humans are.  Each night before bed, Mia stretches out to for affection and to snuggle. Mia loves to play outside and go for walks - she walks perfectly on the leash. While out on her walks, Mia greets all of the people she meets with tail wags and kisses. Mia also loves riding and to go places - she jumps right up in the vehicle and lays down in the back on the floor in a small ball. If you are looking for a best friend and companion, Mia could definitely be it!  Please ask to meet Mia today.

Riley
RileyRileyRiley & SnowyRiley & Snowy
DESCRIPTION:

Riley was surrenderedto us after her family could not longer provide for her. Initially, she was very concerned and anxious about what had happened to the world she used to know. But with time and patience, she has settled in to her new routine at the kennel and has become much better. She's bonded very well to two volunteers in particular and loves to please them.
She is extremely intelligent and loves to learn new things as we attempt to keep her mind stimulated. She appears to be very social with other dogs and we are working on learning about her in that regard. She loves to go on car rides, play ball and can be playful and slightly vocal when in play mode.
Riley lived with children and cats in her previous home. However, just because she grew up with children and cats from puppyhood, this does not guarantee that she will peacefully coexist with every child and/or cat she meets that are new to her. We will not place her in a home with children unless she appears to be completely comfortable with them.
In addition, because of hervery fearful behavior after being surrendered to us, her introductions to new people needs to be taken slowly as she seems to be wary of those she doesn't know. If you are interested in her, please be aware that your introduction may take place over more than one visit with her to help build a relationship with her. She had a difficult time with change but we are committed to helping her get to her forever home and this is a process that may take time.
She will require an experienced handler who understands the undesirable behaviors that fearful dogs can exhibit and how to deal with those behaviors should she be put into a situation that is anything less than completely comfortable for her.
We will continue to update you as we learn more about her.

Updates:
  • UPDATE: Riley continues to do well! We recently introduced her to MAGSR alum Snowy, a well socialized, even-keeled, passive female. Riley was very inquisitive about her new canine pal. They got along extremely well during our long walk. In addition to her social interaction, we also introduced her to the in ground pool where she is currently residing. It didn't take her long and she was in the pool swimming like a champ! She seemed very comfortable in the water and quickly learned where the steps were to enter and exit the pool. She's also been on the agility equipment and has been seen following her handler across the catwalk.

MystiMysti
DESCRIPTION:

Mysti's former owner surrendered her as he did not have time for her and his brothers alpha female GSD was attacking her.  This is the reason that Mysti has some scratches and scars on her nose/muzzle, but they make her no less beautiful.  Mysti was being kept in an all black wire metal crate, which was too small for her, out in the sun in 80 degree temperatures.  Mysti loves rope toys, kongs and knuckle bones which she will carry around in her mouth.  She rides well in a vehicle and did well at her vet visit.  She enjoys having her belly rubbed.  With proper training, love and encouragement Mysti will be a wonderful family dog.

CyndalCyndalCyndal takes a breakCyndalCyndalCyndalCyndalCyndalCyndalCyndalCyndalCyndalCyndalCyndalCyndalCyndalCyndal
DESCRIPTION:

Cyndal was found as a stray and taken to a shelter.  She is a sweet, sweet girl who gets along very well with other dogs.  She adores people, although we have not seen her with children yet.  We also do not know how she would do with cats as she has not met any yet.  When Cyndal showed up at the shelter she was missing a rear leg, no one has any history on this as she was stray.  She has no problems getting around with only 3 legs.  In fact tri-paws adapt to a missing limb and can pretty much do all of the same things as 4 legged dogs.  Please don't let her missing limb deter you from asking to meet Cyndal to see for yourself how well she gets around and just how sweet she is.

Updates:
  • Cyndal plays with her new toy. She's settling in at her foster home.

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Lily came to MAGSR underweight and from a very sad situation. Lily previously lived in a hoarding situation with 14 other dogs.  Lily was underfed and used for breeding.  Because of all that Lily has endured, she is confused and scared, and she needs to learn to trust and know she'll be well taken care of.  Now that MAGSR has Lily, we hope she will quickly adjust and learn that she will receive regular meals, attention, and proper socialization. If Lily sounds like the right dog for your household, please ask about her today. 

Care for these hoarding rescues is putting a severe strain on MAGSR's resources. Donations towards their treatment would be greatly appreciated, this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs.
