Deacon

DESCRIPTION: Alpha found himself at the shelter after his former person passed away. He is a big boy but does need to lose around 15 lbs. When he arrived in our care his long coat had not been well cared for, it was matted and quite smelly. His foster mom immediately gave him a much needed bath and started working on de matting him. It is still an ongoing process but he already looks so much better and smells better also. He took it all in stride. He has a laid back country boy way about him, a very sweet disposition. He is quiet and relaxed in the house and good with other dogs. Ask to meet this big handsome boy, you won't be disappointed.

Aspen

DESCRIPTION: Aspen came to us as a stray from a shelter. He is a handsome friendly boy who steals the heart of those he meets. He is playful and loving. Please ask to meet Aspen.

UPDATE: Aspen has been in a foster home which has allowed us to get to know him better. Aspen has also been evaluated by trainers. Aspen is not a dog that will be happy to just be a family pet. Aspen requires a job and/or activity to keep him occupied and happy. He is a high energy boy with a lot of drive that needs to be properly directed. Boredom and inactivity are out of the question for Aspen. This would only lead to Aspen finding his own things to do which would end up with him in trouble. Daily training and activity, both mentally and physically is required for a dog such as Aspen. Only those with the experience, knowledge and the ability to meet his needs will be considered for Aspen.

He will need a person who will set boundaries, correct unwanted behaviors and teach him acceptable behaviors. Training is an absolute must as it with all of our dogs. Bowden is young and full of himself at this point in his life, guidance, training and an experienced confident handler will certainly make a difference for him.

Of course along with that he is also mischievous, gets into things, chews, destroys his toys, has accidents and is full of puppy energy. Please think seriously before deciding to adopt a puppy, you will need the time, patience, energy and finances that are required to provide him with all that is needed for the rest of life.

Chris
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Chris was adopted from MAGSR back in 2006.  Sadly his adopter unexpectedly passed away leaving Chris with no family or anyone to care for him.  It is obvious that Chris was very much loved and well cared for by his person.  He is  somewhat over weight and has been started on a diet.  He appears to be in very good health, does not seem to have any joint issues that were seen on exam.  He is very friendly and enjoys everyone he meets.  Chris is looking for a family and home where he can live out the rest of his life.  A comfy bed, good food, leisurely strolls, curled up by your side and lots of love are in order for this boy.  Please consider a senior when looking to adopt, they make wonderful companions.

Update: Chris has been in his new foster home for a month and has been a complete joy to have around. He currently is not living with children, but has allowed children (and everyone he meets) to pet him on our walks.  He's a pretty energetic 8-yr old, and has two walks a day, sometimes moving along at a good trot alongside a motorized handicap scooter.  Will sit and wait while his fosters talk with neighbors. He loves the outdoors and loves to be with his people while they are gardening or doing outside activities. He is not much for playing fetch but he does love a fuzzy wubba. He chases birds outside and he is currently in foster with a parrot that he gives a rough time. He is afraid of thunderstorms and firecrakers.  Chris is perfectly house trained and has had no accidents and he is also crate trained. Our first hot day we turned on the ceiling fans and he ran in circles beneath them. He is full of joy to have in our home. If you are interested in meeting Chris please contact us today.

Update: Chris continues to be a great house guest in his foster home.  Chris has recently refined his obedience training skills and is a very smart boy, and does great with his obedience commands.  For a senior pup, Chris has lots of energy and needs to walk at least one day a time, if not more.  He's not much interested in toys or balls, but still likes to play, walk and go for rides.

Please think seriously before deciding to adopt a puppy, you will need the time, patience, energy and finances that are required to provide him with all that is needed for the rest of life.

Update: Hi! Dempsey here. I am learning all kinds of things in my new foster home, like kids are awesome because they are my size. I like them a lot. I am a smart boy and my foster mama says "too smart for <my> own good". Training will go a long way with me. I am eager to learn since I love getting treats and praise. The other pups in my home are teaching me the ropes and how to be a good pup. Potty training is going great! I don’t love the box they put me in but it isn’t so bad because I have toys hidden in there. There are cats in my house and one time I got too close and boy oh boy was that dumb, cause he whacked me in the face. I won't do that again. Hopefully someone wants to meet me and bring me into their family. I must say I am pretty awesome!!! Okay well talk soon!

DESCRIPTION: Hero along with his brother Patriot were found as strays, they look to be cared for but sadly no one came looking for them. Both boys are friendly, loving, playful and happy to be out of the shelter. Ask to meet them to see if they are the right fit for your family.

Update: Hi, my name is Hero. My foster mom is helping me type up my introduction… you see I’m all paws! She keeps calling me "Sweet Boy" and I am starting to believe that’s my name. And speaking of paws, I have big ones that I am starting to fill. I came to my foster mom really underweight and waiting for my furever family in the kennel, well it was just not the place for me – but, in my foster home, I am happily eating and filling out now. I am a young guy, at 1 years old, and I have beautiful golden eyes and a wonderful disposition (at least that's what I keep hearing). Everyone I meet is a friend, and I mean everyone - from neighbors, friends, kids, cats and the mailman is my fan. So far, I have bonded quickly with my foster mom and follow her everywhere. She describes me as a “half lap dog”, meaning I put my head and paws in your lap and love to be loved on. I am learning to play with humans and would love to have another dog to play with and follow their lead. I also think I’d be just fine alone in an active household. If you are looking for a handsome pair, maybe consider my brother Patriot and me together too. Oh, and I bet you are wondering: I walk well on lead, have nice manners, I am working on my obedience (doing really well), am house broken, get along with cats, haven’t barked yet, and get along great with kids. Can’t forget that I am a GSD puppy, which means everything that comes along with that: I need love, attention, exercise, training, stimulation, and fun, yet I settle nicely. I have a ton of love and smiles to bring to you and your family, so it will all be worth it. My foster mom and I would love to meet you!

DESCRIPTION: Jose came to us as a stray from a shelter. He is the cutest boy and an ideal size for someone looking for a dog not as large as your typical GSD. This boy has a tremendous amount of energy and would be a perfect running partner or agility dog. He is smart, curious, and wants to please. You'll fall in love with him when he sits in front of you, tilting his head side to side as he waits for a treat. With training, exercise, and love he will be a happy boy. If you are looking for a smaller boy then please put Jose on your list of dogs to meet.

Simba & Juma

DESCRIPTION: Simba (red collar) and Juma (blue collar) are litter mate brothers who found their way into rescue because their owner was no longer able to give them the time and attention they need. Lucky for them they are now in a foster home that is allowing them to flourish and show their true personalities. Both boys are house broken and crate trained. They are learning to walk on a leash and have picked up quickly on their commands. They love squeaky balls. Simba and Juma are friendly with everyone they have met including toddlers, big and small dogs, and even a cat. They both crave love and attention and will nuzzle you when they need more. These are two special boys who deserve a home to call their own. They will make a lovely addition to any family. Do you have room in your home and hearts to welcome one or both of these brothers? Please ask to meet Simba or Juma

DESCRIPTION: Luger is a 1 yr. old male purebred German Shepherd. He is so so sweet, good with other dogs and a really good boy, he will benefit from standard obedience as all rescue dogs need. We think Luger is a good boy, slightly obnoxious and a twerp at times, but that's a typical German Shepherd puppy and yes, at 1 yr. and 78 lbs. he is still a puppy. He rides great in the car, gives kisses when he meets you and has a great temperment.

Why wouldn't you want to spend time with him? He's a great boy!

Sastri
Camera Click here for more pictures

 

DESCRIPTION: Sas is a VERY sweet boy who desperately wants to be loved, but doesn't exactly know how to be. He hasn't lived the easiest of lives up to this point, being surrendered to the shelter by his moving owners with his hind end covered in feces and stained with urine and afraid of walking next to my hand. While he has gotten much better during his time in rescue, Sas doesn't seem to know what it means to be cared for: for example relaxing for a good pet, or allowing his ears to be cleaned, nails clipped etc. He is in NO way aggressive or outwardly upset by it, but he does seem to be afraid, not knowing what you are doing or the relief that basic care brings him. Once you are able to wrangle him down and get it done, he gives you licks of thanks, but he does need a bit of wrangling! lol :) In my opinion he acts a lot like what I call a "garage dog": an animal chained in the garage and left. No interaction, no training, no exposure to anything really. BUT despite that Sas does want to be loved, he has shown his ability to try and accept new places, people, animals and circumstances and is learning about what it means to have someone "take care" of him and to trust in.

Sastri does well with very mellow dogs, he is afraid of playing with others but will happily be in the yard with another pup who is content allowing him to be there. He also seems to be ok with cats in the house, but looks like he would like to chase them if he saw them running outside (he is a dog after all!! LOL). Sastri wants attention from everyone big or small, but given where he is in his learning, a family with older children, ones who can help maintain structure and training would be best.

UPDATE: Hello, my name is Sastri, my foster parents think I am a mix of German Shepherd and possibly Husky and I think I am about three years old. They say my nickname is Freckles because I have dots on my snout. I have a lot of energy and I want to be around my people as much as possible. My foster mommy owns a doggie daycare so I get to socialize and play with other dogs all day long and they say I do pretty good. I also have no problems with kitty cats, we have one where I am living right now and I hardly pay it no mind. I am a little scared of vehicles but I will gladly get in one, I will just hide down on the floor until you come to a stop. I am also a little scared of vehicles when we go for a walk. I cower behind my foster parents until the car goes by. They are trying to work with me on this and it is getting better. I am crate trained and will get in the crate willingly. But, I do love to cuddle with my people so anytime you want me to sleep with you I will be more than happy to. My foster parents recently took me to the beach for a long weekend and I had a blast! The water was awesome & I loved it! I had so much fun with my foster sister. I am looking for my forever home & would love to have someone love me as much as I love them. Ask for an appointment to meet me today!

DESCRIPTION: Shotzie was trembling and quite scared as he sat in a shelter not knowing his fate.  This poor boy seems to have been through lot, not in the best of condition, infested with fleas and ticks and what looks to be old bite wounds to his face.  We have promised Shotzie a life of love and care and that he would never have to be frightened again.  Understandably he can be shy and withdrawn at first but once comfortable he snuggles up looking for love.  Shotzie needs a family and a home where he can start his life a new.  Please ask to meet this sweet young boy. 

UPDATE: Shotzie has been diagnosed with Demodex mange along with a secondary skin infection. Poor little boy has several sores from scratching. He crawls along the grass like an alligator to scratch his belly. He is currently in a foster home resting comfortably and clearing up nicely. Shortly after starting treatment and receiving a much needed bath his true personality started to shine. He is very playful, entertaining and the sweetest boy you would ever want to meet. He loves all toys and will entertain himself for hours. He is currently living with other dogs and cats. He is very gentle and tolerant of anything concerning his care. He does not mind being pampered, including shampoo, blow dry, nail trims and dremel, ear cleanings, brushing and any medication applications. Shotzie is crate trained and has had no accidents in the house. He sleeps through the night without a peep and doesn't protest the crate. He does display the normal puppy behaviors of chewing and getting into things. He is very curious and seems comfortable in a home. He does like to steal shoes and slippers and takes them to his crate for a new design. He is rather thin and could use a few pounds. He is a very easy boy and a pleasure to have in our home. If you are interested in this little love bug don't delay and ask to meet Shotzie.

Simba & Juma

DESCRIPTION: Simba (red collar) and Juma (blue collar) are litter mate brothers who found their way into rescue because their owner was no longer able to give them the time and attention they need. Lucky for them they are now in a foster home that is allowing them to flourish and show their true personalities. Both boys are house broken and crate trained. They are learning to walk on a leash and have picked up quickly on their commands. They love squeaky balls. Simba and Juma are friendly with everyone they have met including toddlers, big and small dogs, and even a cat. They both crave love and attention and will nuzzle you when they need more. These are two special boys who deserve a home to call their own. They will make a lovely addition to any family. Do you have room in your home and hearts to welcome one or both of these brothers? Please ask to meet Simba or Juma

Stewart
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Stewart was surrendered to an emergency vet when it was discovered that he had come down with parvo. Parvo is an expensive and potentially life-threatening virus that can be avoided if properly vaccinated. Fortunately, Stewart was given the medical care needed at the emergency vet and is now recovering. Having survived this difficult virus, Stewart is now able to move on and enjoy being a puppy. Currently living with both cats and dogs, Stewart is doing well with all members of his foster family. Curious and intelligent Stewart doesn’t waste any time getting to know his environment and trying out all of the puppy toys available to him. He greatly enjoys Nylabones and elk horns. Toys that squeak are also a big hit. As a puppy, Stewart is still learning basic commands. He is highly food motivated and will try anything for a little snack. As is true of all puppies, Stewart is cute and cuddly; he will require a lot of attention, time, and patience from his new family. He has a lot to learn and will need leadership and guidance in order to become a good canine citizen. He will get into things, chew on inappropriate things, have accidents, whine, and want lots of attention and love. Stewart will need proper food and vet care for the rest of his life. In return, he will smother you in puppy kisses and cuddles while entertaining you with his puppy antics. If interested in Stewart, please be sure you have the time and patience to raise a puppy and commit to him for his entire life.
