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.

Captain Kirk

DESCRIPTION: Captain Kirk has a lot of healing to do from the horrid past he must have endured. He arrived at the shelter with an embedded collar in his neck and underwent surgery to have it removed. He also is suffering from demodex mange for which he is receiving treatment. We then found out that he was heartworm positive and has undergone treatment for that. It is obvious that his former family had no respect for the Captain.

Captains life has now changed for the better and will continue to improve as he heals both physically and mentally from his past. He is currently under the care of our vet, receiving the best care possible.

We can only help dogs like Capt. Kirk through your generous donations. Please consider becoming a sponsor for Captain Kirk to help offset the costs of his care. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated. We will continue to post updates.

Joey
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Joey was found living in the woods, quite frightened and unsure.  Luckily some caring people had noticed him and worked diligently at trying to capture him.  They brought food to him daily, but sadly Joey was just too frightened to allow them to capture him.  After a number of weeks of trying, a search and rescue dog tracking team was brought in. A humane trap was set, all feedings were stopped and the trap was baited with food.  Not much longer after, Joey entered the trap to eat and he was captured.  The many wonderful and caring people who had been caring for Joey were relieved that he was finally safe.  

Joey is one happy and friendly boy and is very thankful for those who saved him.  He is currently at our vet's being well cared for.  He needs to gain some weight, but with regular nutritious meals he should be at his ideal weight in no time. Once Joey has gained some weight and his diarrhea is brought under control he will be fully vaccinated and neutered.  He will then be ready to meet potential adopters who are able to provide him with a loving and caring family and home.  Could your family be the fresh start that Joey so deserves?

He is naturally protective of his family, but with strong leadership he will learn his place in the pack.

Kennedy

Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Kennedy was confiscated due to cruelty and neglect.  He was left outside with no food, water or shelter in all types of weather, among other things.  It is obvious that Kennedy did not receive much in the way of good human contact.  He is quite shy and skittish, has no idea what a leash is, and he needs to gain some weight.  He did live with 2 other dogs whom were also confiscated.

Kennedy has not shown any aggression, he just shies away and hides when he is approached by humans.  Our volunteers are working with him on helping him learn that not all humans are bad, and to enjoy and relax being with humans.  With time, patience, direction, training and lots of love Kennedy will move forward putting his past behind him.  Kennedy would benefit from being in a foster home or an adoptive home.  Please ask to meet Kennedy.

Ronnie

Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Ronnie came to MAGSR as an owner surrender. He was deeply loved in his former home, in which he lived with adults and children of all ages. His former owner fell on hard times and knew surrendering Ronnie would be best for his well-being.

Ronnie is an active, lovable guy who enjoys car rides, toys of all types (he really has an affinity for soccer balls), playing fetch, playing with children and snuggling. He also thoroughly enjoys being brushed. He adores children and seems interested in meeting other dogs, though proper introductions for both children and dogs will be necessary. He sometimes says hello by jumping, but he is working on appropriate introductions for a dog his size.

Ronnie is an intelligent boy who graduated basic obedience in his former life, and needs a refresher on his skills. Like all MAGSR dogs, his new human will be required to enroll him in basic obedience training, which will not only help him fine tune his skills, but will also establish that human/dog connection. He is very treat motivated, but may take them quickly, so it's best to keep the treat curled up in your hand and make him sit and wait patiently for it.

Ronnie is an all-around awesome, active dog and would do well in a home with athletes and/or children. He is a powerful guy, so someone who is a strong handler may be ideal. He just needs a good family to love and spend time with him, play with him and snuggle with him at night.

Sambo

DESCRIPTION: Sambo was surrendered to us as it was discovered that Sambo was in pain due to problems with his hips.  His former person not being unable to afford any type of care or surgery, they contacted us.  We immediately had Sambo seen by a Specialist and it was determined that he will require surgery to correct his hip dysplasia.  Sambo is a sweet young pup that his has his whole life ahead of him, one that he should enjoy pain free.

Hip surgery is very expensive but Sambo is so worth it.  In order for Sambo to have the surgery we will need to raise the funds to cover this.  Donations are greatly needed and very much appreciated.  Please help Sambo live a pain free life by donating to his care.

Santino
Camera Click here for more pictures

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. 

UPDATE: Santino moved into a foster home a few weeks after arriving in the rescue. It was apparent to his foster family that Santino had been abused and would need time to decompress and learn to trust. Skittish and unsure about the new people, sounds, and fast movements, his foster family has been working with Santino to increase his confidence. Significant improvements have been made in a short period of time with the help of a knowledgeable foster and trainer; however, Santino will need continued support and guidance in order to become a stable adult. Further training will go a long way with Santino. MAGSR is positive he is up for the challenge.

Throughout the past month, Santino's foster family has had the chance to watch him bloom. Going from a skittish and standoffish boy in the household to an attention seeking, leaner. As a young shepherd and a bit of a goofball, Santino has needed guidance on simple things like - how to play with toys and how to appropriately play with his people. Fortunately, he has learned to take cues from his foster brother and sister who are more than happy to teach him about the joyful parts of life. Santino has also learned to look forward to his daily walks/jogs; he checks in with his handle regularly and is easy to control on leash. Good not only with dogs, but cats too, Santino really just wants to be pals with all things furry both inside and outside of the household.

If Santino sounds like the match for your household, please inquire about him today.
