I'm beautiful to look at
And wonderful to hold,

Just give me a chance to be a good dog,
And I'll never stop loving you.

DESCRIPTION: Meet the Olympic Puppies!  Siblings Sochi, Teddy, Bunny, Bode, Nastia, Charlie, Mikaela, and Joss were brought into rescue with their mother, Mya, this winter and are currently enjoying life and learning about all the wonderful things the world has to offer curious, active puppies.

These cute, fluffy puppies will grow up and become very large dogs fast.  Puppies are a lot of work so please be sure that you have the time and patience it will take to raise a puppy to be a well-behaved and socialized adult.  Be realistic and make sure you can make a commitment that will last through their entire lifetime - most of which will be as a big dog.  As with any puppy, they will try your patience to no end; puppies have accidents, chew on things they should not, cause a lot of noise, and can create havoc.  However, if provided with love, positive training, and vast amounts of time and patience, they will love you unconditionally and be your best friend forever. 

Please, please do your research before you apply and make sure you can make the commitment a young puppy requires.  We at MAGSR want to make sure that they have the best home ever. If you feel that you have what it takes to give that home, please ask about the Olympic Puppies!

Carlos

DESCRIPTION: Carlos was surrendered by his previous family to a shelter. He is putting that experience behind him and looking for a new family who will love and care for him for the rest of his life. Carlos is currently in a foster home and is an absolute joy. He is a fun young dog who gets along with other dogs and cats. In his previous home he did live with children.

Update: Carlos has been in our house for two weeks now. Hes such a great dog! Carlos is housebroken. Hes so sweet and loves to be close to you. He likes to try to sit on your lap! He loves to go for walks and is so easy to walk. He knows how to stop and sit if a car is approaching. He is not a puller and is content just moving along at whatever speed you are walking. He loves to play with toys and occupys himself by grabbing a toy and throwing it in the air and then catching it! He gets along with other dogs. Our two dogs are older and just like to be left alone, so he has learned how to respect that. Im sure he would be fine with a younger dog that he could play with, however I havent seen that to be sure. He does really well with our cat as well. Please ask to meet Carlos today!

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.

UPDATE:Kaz and Kylene have been in foster together for a week and both are bonded. Kylene gains much of her confidence from Kaz and vice versa. They love each other's company. They are both pretty laid back but enjoy their evening walks. Although neither had leash manners they have improved in the short time they have been in foster. Kaz is protective of his sister and always walks on the outside of Kylene herding her in and often checking in with his handler. They enjoy car rides, marrow bones, peanut butter kongs, and Naps!!! Often they are found lying side by side or with Kylene sleeping on Kaz. We are working on basic commands and both take treats gently. They are housebroken and get along with other dogs. They are still settling into home life but check back for future updates.

DESCRIPTION: Olaf is heartworm positive and will be undergoing very expensive heartworm treatment.  Sadly his former person did not keep him on preventatives which would have kept Olaf from this disease.  Heartworm treatment is quite expensive but Olaf is so worth it.  Donations of any amount towards his treatment will make it possible for us to continue to rescue and treat other heartworm positive dogs.  Please help us help more dogs, your donations are greatly appreciated and much needed.

Olaf is such a calm and quiet boy, easy to handle and a joy to be with.  He made a very long road trip to arrive to us and seemed to handle the long drive without any problems at all, he rode like a champ.  Olaf will start his heartworm treatment in approx. 30 days but in the meantime he is eager to interview potential new families...won't you open up your heart and home to Olaf? 

UPDATE: Olaf is currently undergoing heartworm treatment and will be ready for adoption in April.

DESCRIPTION:Santino was found wandering around the streets, neighbors reported that his family moved away and left poor Santino behind.  Santino sat at the shelter in hopes that the neighbors were wrong and that his family would come for him, but sadly that did not happen.

Understandably so, Santino is quite unsure with what is going on.  He is somewhat skittish, quiet and nervous.  Our wonderful volunteers are working with Santino to help him settle in and to trust that he is in a safe place.

Santino will need a family/person to help him build his confidence.  Training will go along way with this as it will help him learn to trust his person and build a bond.

thor

Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Thor is a handsome and active  boy who is looking for a home and family where there are no small dogs.  You see Thor looks at small dogs as prey which his former family had difficulty controlling.  Living in a neighborhood with a lot of small dogs proved to be too much for Thor and his family, making it difficult to get Thor out for the exercise he needs.  Thor does require training which will give his person/family a better understanding of how to control his prey drive, teach him leash manners and of course good dog manners.  Ask to meet to Thor to see if he is the right fit for your lifestyle. 

UPDATE: Thor has been with MAGSR for three weeks and is a special boy at the kennel. Thor appears to have had some training and walks well on a lead He heels close to his handler. Thor takes treats gently, is very affectionate and leans into his handler for attention and petting. Thor enjoys playing and retrieving frisbees in the play pen and brings them back to you to throw again. Thor will make a special and loyal partner in a home that can spend time bonding with him - will that home be yours?
