Beautiful Koa ended up at a shelter as a stray. Then, when no one came for her, MAGSR was contacted. Koa is a very sweet and friendly girl, and she likes everyone she meets. She loves to cuddle up in your lap, or follow you wherever you go. She enjoys the company of other dogs, always wanting to engage in play. She is young, with lots of energy and very little training, so this needs to be addressed with consistently directing her and teaching her what is expected. She will be a great a member of an active family.

Unfortunately, Koa tested heartworm positive. This could have been avoided had she been kept on monthly heartworm preventatives prior to coming to MAGSR. Koa is in the beginning stages of her heartworm treatment, which of course MAGSR will pay for her entire treatment. Treatment is expensive, but Koa is certainly worth the cost. Donations towards her treatment would be greatly appreciated, this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs. She will have to take it slow for the next few months while she undergoes treatment, so lots of rest will be in order.


Koa has settled in to her foster home nicely and her foster reports she is a delight to have. Koa's foster mom reports she is pretty spirited and spunky and absolutely loves people. Koa will snuggle with her humans to watch TV and would play with the resident dogs if allowed, which she most certainly can play after she completes her heartworm treatment. Koa needs to learn more how to walk on a leash work and some obedience training, all of which she'll most certainly need once her treatment in complete. Koa is ready for her fur-ever home, so if she looks like she could be a fit, ask to meet Koa and snuggle a little.
