DESCRIPTION:

Baileys person moved and could not afford the airfare to fly him to Hawaii. He was left with her family but sadly they did not take very good care of him. His person reached out to us as she wanted him away from the bad life his was living.

Bailey arrived in our care under weight, full of fleas, long nails and with no vaccines. He is having everything done at our vets and will be going into a foster home. As you can see by his face he has a worried look which is understandable. He was nervous at the vets office wanting to get away but when he realized he couldn't he laid down and hid his face. We have promised him his future will be much better, being loved and cared for. He is a gentle soul.

Cyrus
CyrusCyrusCyrusCyrus & Foster Bro, SHermanCyrus
DESCRIPTION:

Cyrus is very puppylike. He does know how to sit and give paw. But he needs general obedience. He is a fun, smaller guy that would greatly benefit from group training so that he learns how to socially interact with other dogs.

He loves people. He loves to play fetch with a ball and is eager to explore new things. He likes car rides, is very food motivated and is eager to please his person.

He will need someone with patience and time to teach him right from wrong. Because he's a little grabby and hard on the fingers when it comes to taking treats, he might be better suited in a household without toddlers or very young children.

Update:

Cyrus is progressing nicely! With regards to his behavior, he is learning what is expected and what is not permitted. He's a fun, charismatic, exuberant pup. We have been socializing him with Sherman (another MAGSR dog) and they get along quite well, reason being that Sherman is a calm, confident, socialized dog. This would be an ideal time for Cyrus to get into a foster home or adoptive home and to start obedience training as he is showing the wilingness to focus on commands and tasks.


Update:

Just recently, Cyrus’ manners have improved a lot and he is really showing signs of maturing. He is now being worked with another socialized, well balanced dog and behaving himself very nicely. He is also taking treats much better and his focus is continuing to improve. In addition to this, he was just recently introduced to several people he did not know including children and we are very proud of the way he conducted himself.

DESCRIPTION:

Grizzly is the son of Apache and the brother to Keena.  Grizzly does best with another dog as they help him relax.  He is somewhat shy, he will require someone with patience and who will work on helping him build his confidence.  Training will go along way and certainly help with him getting use to being on a leash.  He is a sweet boy just a little unsure, it is obvious he was not well socialized, but with your help he should blossom.

Otto
OttoOttoOttoOttoOttoOtto
DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Otto made his way to us from a family that cared for him after he was dumped on their property.  We have no information about his past.  He is a very nice boy but very scared at this time.  Obviously all of the changes have him unsettled.  He is now in a caring foster home being provided with comfort and time to decompress.  Once Otto has settled in we will post updates. 

Otto's foster reports that being in a home seems new to him.  He is frightened by the stairs and going through doorways.  He has no idea what to do with toys.  He has come out of his shell with one of the resident dogs, they enjoy romping around and playing.  His foster dad is working with him daily to help him become more confident.

Otto is continuing to make progress; he has mastered stairs and is getting calmer going through doorways.  He gets along well with the four large  GSDs in his foster home.  When Otto first arrived in his foster home, he would constantly hide in the back of his crate and had to be urged out for any activities. Otto has become much more confident over the last two weeks; he is comfortable wandering the house, taking walks around the property and prefers to nap in the corner of the living room rather than in his crate.  Over the last couple of days he started to play with chew toys and is taking tentative first steps playing fetch.  Although shy with new people, he is very affectionate and attentive with his foster.

DESCRIPTION:

This handsome boy was surrendered to us as the other male dog in the home was not getting along with him.  Reese is now in a foster home living with both male & female dogs of varying sizes, children and cats.  He is good with the larger dogs but is too fixated on the smaller dog and cats.  Reese we believe is a senior, 7 years or older, he will be seen by our vet to try to determine his age.  He certainly has the energy of a younger dog, he enjoys going for walks and romping around the yard.  He a little stiff when first getting up, but once on his feet he has no lameness or stiffness and gets around just fine.

Embedded thumbnail for Sam-MAGSR-2017-2
DESCRIPTION:

Sam is a very handsome 8 year old male GSD.  He has not been well cared for up until now, he is underweight and entered the shelter covered in fleas.  Life has changed for the better, he is now receiving good nutrition, he has been treated for the flea infestation and he is much loved by our rescue.  Now all that Sam needs is a family who will love him and provide proper care for his lifetime.  Please consider Sam for your family, he deserves a new start at a better life.

Update:

Before writing Sam's update, I interviewed other family members to see what they have to say about Sam.

ORHD aged 8: My favorite t​hing about Sam: he is sometimes funny when he steals pillows off of the couch and snuggles with them. If Sam had a human job it would be a boxer; no, the guy who shoots t-shirts out of the big gun at games and makes everyone cheer. Sam was very stinky when he came here but he smells better now. I hope his new owner likes to give dogs baths. He liked his bath.

HLHD aged 8: My favorite thing about Sam: he brings back the ball when I throw it. Also, he ran into the wall his first night here. He thought a shadow was a door. He put his head in my lap and made sad sounds and let me pat him. If Sam had a human job, he would says hello to everyone at [LARGE DISCOUNT STORE] and marker people's receipts. He would act like the job is fun. Sam can be annoying because he never wants to just do nothing, but he is very nice and silly. I hope his new owner buys a lot of tennis balls.

MSD aged 6: My favorite thing about Sam: he looks funny when I put underpants on his head and stick his ears out of them. He really, for real, likes hugs. Not like some dogs that you can hug, but they want to get away. If Sam had a human job it would be a clown or a hugger who hugs people that need hugs. I hope Sam's new owner hugs him and never forgets to feed him.

Foster dad: My favorite thing about Sam is that he does not have a mean bone in his body. He is starting to listen to his name, "No, Sam." If Sam had a job it would be the guy who really wants to tell you about his religion at the Metro. I hope Sam's new owner is expecting an eight-year-old dog to have as much energy as our 4-year-old one does.

Slinky (resident dog-neutered-male) aged 4: My favorite thing about Sam is that he is available for adoption. If Sam had a human job it would be: proctologist. I hope Sam's new owner feeds Sam enough. Even though he is annoying, he just wants to be friends, and no dog deserves to be starved - like Sam was.

Update from foster mom: Sam is enjoying life with a family, although he is really struggling to be calm and relax. He spends a lot of time pacing and seeking attention. He is not destroying anything, although he really likes an old couch pillow, which we are letting him keep. He carries it around but hasn't torn it up or taken anything else that he should not have.

Sam is very eager to please and responds to a sharp, no. He has had zero training and is starting to understand that he needs to "sit" to be served dinner. Sam is housebroken and he is fine when left alone at home in a crate - handled an 8 hour day without issue. He is dramatic and vocal when crated while his people are home because he wants to be with them. Sam has accepted that he is not permitted to be in the humans' beds or on the couch. He is having a harder time realizing that the resident dog doesn't like him "like that." That issue should improve after Sam is neutered. On a positive note, he accepts rejection well.

Sam walks nicely on a leash. He has met a males and females of all ages and sizes and done well with a variety of personalities. He would likely do well with a bossy female or any dog that wouldn't meet his exuberance with aggression. Sam has shown no interest in chasing rabbits or squirrels, when they are around, so it seems likely that he would be okay with a cat.

Sam is an all around friendly guy, who will 100% do well with training, consistency, and that all important trip to the vet.

DESCRIPTION:

Hi  friends, my name is Sarge and I am interviewing prosepctive forever families. Let me explain my situation and get you up to speed. I managed to get myself in quite a pickle as I landed myself in local  shelter as a stray. I am not really sure what a stray is but I will figure that out later.  The accommodations were not bad. They were really nice to me and I did get a warm bed and two squares a day! It was kind of rough though because I was use to em... certain luxeries. I was at this place for about a month when they told me my foster family was coming to pick me up and bring me home! They are amazing and I am really living it up here wth them but foster mean temporary until my perfect home presents itself. They told me I can stay as long as I need to which makes me so happy. I even heard them say they were taking me to acupuncture this weekend so I am hoping that is some sort of massage and they provide treats! I will update later on how that goes.. So dont worry, I am in a good place as I interview

So back to my requirements.. you know a senior  gentleman has certain needs and things we become accustomed to. I like a soft orthopedic bed with a blanky, I demand regular head and belly scratches, and daily treats. And let's be clear, I DONT enjoy steps and can only get up or down one or two steps because I sustained a bad pelvic injury in my younger days that never healed correctly so I only get around on three legs. My back leg is pretty useless although it does help to steady me when begging at the table... I have learned to compensate for my injury and do still enjoy playing and romping in the yard. My new family will need to provide some pain meds and supplements to help keep me as pain free as possible. Here is a positive.. I am totally house broken but do require to be let out every few hours as in my old age I just can't hold it as long as when I was a young buck.. My favorite past time aside from eating is sleeping because don't forget I am a senior boy and require several naps.. I am the most laid back guy that you will ever meet! I like my doggie friends big and small! I am just an all around great companion and just want a person to call my own. I will follow you around and lay at your feet! If you feel you could be my forever family and provide for my senior needs please apply above! Love Sarge

Sherman
ShermanShermanShermanShermanShermanShermanShermanShermanShermanShermanShermanSherman with his little foster bro, Cyrus
DESCRIPTION:

Sherman came to us from a local shelter where he was surrendered. We are told that in his previous home, he was protective of his property and wary of strangers. When MAGSR took him in, he was a little detached and aloof. However, he's starting to come out of his shell and his personality is starting to shine. When he is with his favorite people, he is very laid back and pretty obedient. He really wants to please those he is closest to. He is starting to bond with his favorite handler and has been known to give kisses loves to shake/give paw for treats. He loves to go for rides in a vehicle and rides very quietly. He also likes riding on the motorized golf cart type vehicle which is used at the kennel. You can see him in attached photos lying on the front seat and in the rear cargo area. We also discovered he likes swimming with his handler which has allowed him to open up and bond as well as get some exercise. Just today, he was introduced to a very passive, calm female shepherd and he did very well with her. So as you can see, we have been introducing him to a lot of fun, new things and he is handling all of it well. He will need a confident, experienced handler as he is a big intimidating boy who needs to know that his human(s) have got the situation under control. We are extremely happy to see his progress and will update as we learn more about him.

Update:

We are happy to report that Sherman is doing really well! He's become attached to his favorite handlers and lights up when he sees them.

He's also been to the local Pet Valu and PetSmart to do some shopping. He's curious about all the smells and he conducts himself very well.

He's also become very fond of the swimming pool at the kennel and shows no fear of it whatsoever. Just today, he spent some time with the white shepherd seen in the attached photos and he does well with her.

He also spent time in the home of that shepherd's family and found a nice comfy bed to snuggle up on and take a nap.

DESCRIPTION:

Shiloh was returned to us as his family is going through life altering changes and can no longer provide for him as needed. However, he was very much loved by them and he was very attached to them. Upon Shiloh's return, he showed signs of being reactive to strangers and protective of his family. He was also reactive to other dogs. However, he was very friendly, comfortable with and trusting of his family and their bond was evident. He is currently with a reputable trainer so that he can become better socialized and we will provide further updates as we get them from the trainer.

SonicSonicSonicSonicSonicSonicSonicSonicSonicSonicSonic
DESCRIPTION:

Sonic was adopted from MAGSR as a puppy in 2009, sadly his family decided to return him today as they did not want to work with the anxiety Sonic developed after being scared by fireworks when home alone.  Sonic was a loving and loyal family member to his family and 2 children for the last 8 years, but that was not enough to earn the love and loyalty of his family.  Understandably Sonic is confused as to where his family is, he will need time to adjust to the sudden and drastic changes in his life.  We are now getting to know Sonic as an adult, as we learn more about him we will post updates.  

Update: Sonic may be a little older, but he is energetic and curious. He may be weary at first; however with a little time and effort, he will want nothing more than to be by your side. He has a very anxious personality, which may be because the only family he has ever known is no longer in his life (who wouldn’t be a little upset). Sonic doesn’t really like to play, but will be the happiest when going on a walk and sniffing everything and anything he can. He can be a little uneasy in his crate, but he’s easily calmed when he is reassured. Sonic is excellent when being brushed, and likes to be in your lap (or as close to you as possible) while being brushed.
