Embedded thumbnail for Maren-MAGSR-2018
DESCRIPTION:

Maren was surrendered to us as her elderly caregivers were moving and could not keep her.  She has not had any training or guidance, nor has she been exposed to the world around her.  She will need a family who will commit to training to help her build her confidence and of course to learn good canine manners.  It is important that Maren has ongoing socialization and is introduced to the sounds, sights and smells of the world.  It is her families job to guide her, work with her daily, provide lots of playtime, exercise, love and care.

Update:

Ahsoka, formerly known as Maren, unfortunately has been returned as she was too protective of her home.  She did not like when visitors came to the home.  This can be managed by putting her away in a secure room and/or crate when people come to the home.  She will also benefit greatly from a strong leader who will provide appropriate correction and training.  She would do best in a home that does not have frequent visitors and with a family that is willing to put her away when visitors do come.  She desperately needs someone who will commit to her to help her learn good manners through a good training program.


Update:

Ahsoka is doing beautifully in her foster home. She loves her foster dad, who takes her on bike rides/runs, and she's in love with the resident dogs, especially the male. Ahsoka stays focused on her handler and looks to them for guidance, so as long as the handler is in charge, Ahsoka is a happy and well behaved girl. She doesn't much like things that startle her, but corrects quickly and easily from reacting. Ahsoka will still need to be managed properly to ensure success for her and everyone else involved, which is why Ahsoka will only meet those who have prior experience with the breed. Ahsoka has come a long way - she is a happy and confident girl now and is waiting patiently for that special family to pick her. Is that you?

DESCRIPTION:

Beethoven is one of 22 dogs from the Carolina's that needed help due to Hurricane Florence.

Beethoven is a furry friendly guy who is looking for his forever home and family.  With all of the stress and changes he has been gone through and a long transport to our care, he has handled it well.  As he is new to us we will continue to get to know him better and post updates.

Update:

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

Embedded thumbnail for Chevy-MAGSR-2018, Embedded thumbnail for Chevy-MAGSR-2018, Embedded thumbnail for Chevy-MAGSR-2018
DESCRIPTION:

Chevy found himself in a shelter very underweight.  He has been diagnosed with EPI, Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency.  This is caused when the pancreas does not produce enough enzymes to properly digest food.  This is very easily treated by adding enzymes to each meal which helps the body digest food. More information can be found at epi4dogs.com along with before and after pictures of dogs that have EPI. Now that Chevy has been receiving the enzymes he needs he has gained weight.  Please do not let EPI deter you from considering Chevy, he deserves a family to love and care for him and in return he will give you his devotion. Chevy needs to be properly introduced to new dogs, he does not do well with face to face meeting the first time round.  Once he has been properly introduced he does well.  He is now in a foster home, please watch for updates.

Update:

Chevy is a sweet young dog looking for a forever home to provide consistency, structure and training with a hander who has prior GSD experience. Chevy is housebroken and crate trained. He hasn’t spent much time in a home - he’s learning about stairs and his reflection in glass doors. He’s also learning what not to do, like counter surf, jump on people and be respectful to the resident dogs. He isn’t aggressive rather he wants to play and can be a little too forward. He needs to learn both people and dog manners. He does not appear to have had any prior training and is new to a prong collar. He responds very well to a light touch and seems to be a quickly learner once he understands what you want. He’s interested in squirrels and if a dog is barking in the hood, he responds in kind. For a young untrained dog, he is fairly calm and easy to handle. He doesn’t pull much on the leash during a walk. He likes to lean into his person, loves attention and gives kisses. He’s ok with being brushed and is getting accustomed to his ears, feet and mouth being handled. His EPI is well managed, with enzymes on his food, mixed and soaked in warm water for 20 minutes and dinner is served - Easy! If you are looking for a dog that is easy to train and loves people and you can provide love, toys, and training - look no further - Chevy is the one for you!


Update:

Chevy is adjusting to life inside a home. He is still learning dog to dog manners as he likes to run up to a dog and bark. Not the best social skill for a dog. He is getting more comfortable around people, but still needs slow introductions to people - we’re taking it slow. He wants to approach on his own terms. Once he knows you're ok, he's fine. Chevy is letting his human know that he’s not comfortable. He doesn’t like collar or people messing with his neck or hands over his head - his foster mom is working on that with him. With his EPI, he gets a few freeze dried liver treats to help with training. A calm, slow and gentle hand wins the day with Chevy - just take it slow and easy. Chevy crates beautifully and loves to talk to the resident female GSD when he wants to play. Chevy is getting settled in and is adjusting well - he’s a fast learner. Overall, Chevy is a sweetheart with a few quirks. If you have the interest in working with Chevy to provide the structure and training he needs and patience to earn his trust, please ask to meet him.

DESCRIPTION:

Crombie is one of 22 dogs from the Carolina's that needed help due to Hurricane Florence. 

This precious boy is so loving and sweet. He yearns for the attention of humans, needing a family of his very own that will commit to him for his lifetime. Just look at that face, those eye's say it all.  He is settling into his foster home so please watch for updates as his foster family gets to know him better.

Update:

Hi there...It's me, Crombie, checking in. I want to tell you a little about myself. My foster mom calls me a big barrel of adorableness. I love my human foster sibling. We could snuggle for hours with me giving her lots of kisses. My walks are awesome. I walk nicely on the leash and am learning to sit to get my leash on. The crate is a good place to be and sometimes I go in there even when the door is open. I love my foster family but would love my furever family more. If you want a snuggle or two, ask to meet me!!


Update:

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


Update:

Hi there! Crombie here....I have made myself right at home in my foster home and my personality hasn't changed a bit. I am very calm and relaxed. I am on activity restriction but that's no big deal for me cause I don't mind my crate at all. Slow walks give me time to sniff some extra and no running, jumping or playing isn't so bad for the next couple of months. I spend my time out of the crate either on my foster mom's lap or laying next to my human foster sibling. I eat and drink in my crate so I know it's a good place to be. Getting out of my crate can be challenging because I'm excited to get out, so I don't want to sit, but my foster mom makes sure I do before we can go out. Hopefully this heart worm thing doesn't scare you away ... MAGSR takes care of all of it and all you need to do is give my my medicine, keep me calm during the treatment (which isn't tough) and love me (that's the easy part) Talk to you soon....Crombie


Update:

It's me again! I have had my first ventures with the resident dogs this week. There is a dominant female shepherd and a second in command. The dominant shepherd loves me but can't figure out why I don't know what playing is. So we just chew bones together on the floor. Maybe I will figure out play in time but hopefully not too soon because I'm on exercise restriction and then on crate restriction during my heartworm treatment. As for the other smaller resident dog, she makes sure I know she is second in command. We don't growl or fight, but she definitely isn't thrilled to have me around, so I just avoid her. All in all, the few weeks we spent just smelling each other on our humans has worked out well. At least I have found a new friend. Keep a look out for me because I'm attending events until I get my first heartworm treatment injection. Catch you later.....Crombie

Grace came to us from a shelter we have no history on her.  Since arriving in our care she has been friendly, she rides well in the car and did well at her vet visit.  She previously lived wth another GSD.  She of course needs training, which help her learn good behavior and manners.  Grace is heartworm positive, this could have been avoided had she been kept on monthly heartworm preventatives.  Grace is in the beginning stages of her heartworm treatment, which of course MAGSR is paying for her entire treatment.  She will have to take it slow for the next few months while undergoes treatment, so lots of rest is in order.

DESCRIPTION:

Gunner is one of 22 dogs from the Carolina's that needed help due to Hurricane Florence. 

Gunner is handsome golden boy.   We are not sure if he has any GSD mixed in, but he needed a place to start a new life so we welcomed him with opened arms.  As he just arrived in our care we are still learning more about him, so watch for updates. 

 

Update:

Gunner came to us from South Carolina by way of Tennessee, thanks to hurricane Florence.  This poor baby has had a lot of upheaval in his short life and all he wants is love.  He's a leaner, and a licker, and he loves naps in the sun, such a gentle soul.  He doesn't know many commands, but he's a super fast learner.  Gunner needs someone who will show him kindness and take it slow to reassure him he's safe, loved and won't be jostled about anymore.  Could that someone be you?

Kenya
Kenya Profile PicKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenya
DESCRIPTION:

Kenya was adopted from our rescue when she was just a puppy in 2006.  Sadly her adopter, due to personal reasons, is no longer able to care for her.  As you can imagine Kenya's world as she knew it has been turned upside down.  She is currently in a loving foster home with her foster family helping her with the adjustment. She is anxious , eating very little and obviously does not understand what is going on or where her family is. 

Don't try to tell this senior to slow down; Kenya is quite athletic and runs and plays just fine, thank you very much!  Kenya loves to go for car rides and long walks with her foster family, as well as snuggling up for head rubs.  She has settled into her foster home nicely, also enjoying naps on her dog bed, hanging out with her foster siblings, and taking her chew bones wherever she goes.  This affectionate lady walks well on leash and knows her basic commands.  If you would like to meet Kenya, please contact our Adoptions Coordinator for more information.

DESCRIPTION:

Kovu has not had much stability in his life, he has had 3 families before coming into our care.  His last person realized that he needed more than she could provide in the way of training and knew that he needed an experienced family to help him adjust to a new life.  Kovu has not been well socialized or provided with proper training.  He can be protective of his person if he feels you are not in control.  He will bark at people he doesn't know, but takes correction and redirection well.  He needs slower introductions to new people, dogs and situations in order for him to feel comfortable.  Training is an absolute must for Kovu and his new family as this will help everyone learn more about Kovu and get him on the right track.  Kovu will only meet those with a lot of experience with the breed and are strong, knowledgeable handlers.  Kovu needs someone who is going to commit to him, provide him with direction and consistency in his life.  Our volunteers are working with him, he learns quickly.

Update:

Kovu has settled into his foster home. Kovu has become affectionate and attentive to his foster dad. Unfortunately, Kovu was inexperienced, untrained and poorly socialized when arriving into MAGSR’s care. Kovu is anxious when meeting new people and needs a handler that understands this to ensure slow introductions with treats. Kovu has a high food drive and responds well to training in obedience with food rewards. Kovu has been confident learning new things and being placed in new situations. Poor Kovu must never have had toys before because he has discovered toys in his foster home – balls, tug ropes, etc.and has a fairly strong ball drive. Kovu is respectful in the home when not crated and is housebroken; however he likes to counter surf at times, and has a special interest in used paper towels. Kovu would do well in a quiet home without young kids or other pets. If Kovu sounds like he could be a match for your family, and you have experience with GSDs, please ask to meet him today.

--- Please give to help Murphy
Murphy
MurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphy
DESCRIPTION:

Murphy made his way to us from a shelter where he was a stray.  We have no past history for him, so we are getting to know him.  He requires a slower approach when meeting new people.   He is in need of training which will help him learn good manners, build his confidence and bond with his new family.

Update:

Murphy is an interesting high energy pup. He’s likely had very little structure in his life to this point and is in need of a strong willed person or family to help guide his future and provide consistent and strong structure, especially with his indoor manners. He’s easy to leash up and walk, both on long and short leash. He’s loves car rides but seems unfamiliar with exiting or entering the car. He is unfamiliar with stairs but is learning to handle them quickly. He has a very high ball drive and will bring the ball back to his human as long as the ball is thrown again. Murphy loves his humans of all ages and wants to be with them always. He needs some work on his manners and is prone to countertop surfing. He also needs help learning that his crate is a safe place to stay. He takes treats gently and is very treat motivated. He is happy to work with anyone willing to give him a chance, could that be you?


Update:

Murphy is a sweet boy who takes time to get to know you.  Once he decides you're his friend, you are allowed the honor of bestowing belly rubs!  And then come the kisses!  He's great on leash, sitting at stops while in heel, knows basic obedience and follows his handler. He's VERY food driven, which is a very handy training tool.  He is going to need someone who can commit to the exercise and training he needs to keep his mind and body healthy.  He's such a handsome boy, do you think you have room for Murphy in your heart and home?

DESCRIPTION:

Nala is one of 22 dogs from the Carolina's that needed help due to Hurricane Florence. 

Nala looks to have led a hard life, but that has all changed now.  Her future is bright, one filled with love and care.  She is a sweet girl with a wonderful demeanor. 

Update:

Nala is settling in to her foster home. Nala has a had a rough life and hasn't had much love and attention. Nala is a little skittish and but learning to trust her foster family. She has become more relaxed, confident and outgoing every day. Nala loves her human companions and likes being close to them when walking and in the house. Nala will do great in a home with someone who is relaxed and patient and who has the time and desire to take slow walks around the block. If Nala sounds like the perfect companion for you, ask to meet her today.


Update:

Nala is feeling much better now that she is getting the love and care she so much deserves. She is learning to trust and becoming more confident in her foster home. She shows she is happy and bounces around the yard. She walks well on leash and off leash and she likes to walk very close to her human. Nala is very quiet and submissive. She gets along with kids and other dogs with easy introductions. If Nala sounds like the girl for you, please ask to meet her.


Update:

Nala's foster reports that she is a sweetheart with the temperament of a therapy dog. Nala loves to be close to her humans, and if you let her, she'll climb into her human's lap. Nala has taken over the comfy couch with the resident GSD and they get along really well - they are quite smitten with one another. Nala is waiting patiently for her fur-ever home to give her a life of love and comfort. If that home could be yours, please ask to meet this very sweet girl.

Embedded thumbnail for Nika-MAGSR-2018
DESCRIPTION:

Nika is one of 22 dogs from the Carolina's that needed help due to Hurricane Florence. 

Nika has been through a lot in the last few days and just arrived from a long transport into our care.  She is still settling into her new living arrangements and getting use to her surroundings.  This seems to have upset Nika and she will need time to settle in.  She was fine with our volunteers, but can be nervous with too many people handling her.  For this reason we will not place her in a home with children at this time.  We will update once Nika has settled more and we get to know her better

Update:

Nika is a lovely female German Shepherd on the smaller side. She is settling in to her foster home slowly but steadily. It is clear that she is still a little unsure of what has happened to her, but from her behavior, her foster family is certain Nika has been in a home situation before. Nika loves playing on the long line leash, which gives her lots of room to run and exercise. She is a very curious girl, wanting to sniff and check everything out, but is starting to return to her handler from the end of the leash when asked to come. She also knows sit, when she is reminded. Nika is working on not jumping up to greet people, by having them turn away and ignore her until she sits. Nika has been slow to start eating, but is finally getting on a normal schedule. When adopted, her new family will need to be patient when she first goes home with them; until she feels safer and more comfortable, she may not show much interest in food. She is very well-behaved in her crate, and although she doesn’t love going into it on her own, she will do so and lays down quietly until it is time to play again!  She has successfully met three different dogs here on the farm, two males and one female puppy. She was appropriately tentative about the introductions, but did not show any aggression or dominance which required intervention. After the first few moments, all was well. Her foster mom has not had the opportunity to observe her interactions with children of any age yet.

Nika does stairs easily and is learning more about walking properly on a leash, but will need to go to training to become a better canine citizen, as all dogs should. She learns quickly and loves to play with and chew on her ball. She is not particularly food-driven, and prefers to take any chew-treats she is given and hide them. Nika is going to be a wonderful dog for someone looking for a dog past the puppy years and habits, but with years of love to give. Having had numerous foster dogs, Nika easily joins the ranks of one of her foster family’s easiest fosters. In the right home situation, after time settling in and when she is feeling secure, Nika will make an outstanding addition to a lucky family.

Oliver
OliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliver
DESCRIPTION:

Oliver found himself in a shelter after he was picked up as a stray. He is sweet, handsome boy who is looking for a forever family and home. He is somewhat shy right now, but who can blame him with the recent changes he has been through. Training will help him build confidence, learn good manners and bond with his family.

Update:

Some dogs simply have a special something about them. Oliver is one of those dogs. Coming into MAGSR as a stray, Oliver clearly hadn't experienced the type of life he so clearly deserves. He lacked socialization and the proper care all dogs need. Since his arrival this impressive boy has made incredible strides in a short amount of time. In his foster home Oliver has had the opportunity to become both housebroken and crate trained. He has discovered the joy of toys and will even entertain himself. Having entered into a large pack, Oliver has adjusted fantastically to the male and female foster fur siblings with which he currently lives. His easy-going and somewhat submissive personality have helped him easily adjust to pack life in the home. 

Oliver's fosters are working with him daily to develop his leash manners as well as gain experience with the outside world. They are impressed with how quickly he is learning about and adjusting to the world around him. Although Oliver continues to need some time when warming up to new people, his sweet and playful personality slowly shines through. We are sure that Oliver will thrive in a patient household that will provide him with the guidance and training all dogs need in order to become good canine citizens. If Oliver sounds like a great addition to your family, please inquire about him today. 


Update:

Oliver was returned to MAGSR because he was protective of his human and home and his family would not put him away when guests were over. Oliver also was out unsupervised, jumped the fence and had gotten loose numerous times and had many unsupervised field trips around the city, sometimes not returning for hours. Oliver was not managed properly and he is lucky to still be alive. Oliver needs someone who will work with him to keep him contained and manage him by putting him away in a secure room and/or crate when people come to the home. If your willing to give Oliver a try, please ask to meet him.


Update:

Oliver has had his world turned upside down the last couple of weeks. Oliver is a big softie and loves belly and butt rubs. Since his return to MAGSR, Oliver has been friendly with everyone he's met. He can be stubborn too when given commands, but our volunteers are working with him on this. Oliver needs someone who will commit to him, keep him contained and work with him. Could that someone be you?

DESCRIPTION:

Oti is one of 22 dogs from the Carolina's that needed help due to Hurricane Florence. 

We have no idea what Oti is mixed with, but we know it is a whole lot of cuteness.  He is patiently waiting to find his forever home and family.  With some basic obedience training and structure from his family he will learn good canine manners.  As our volunteers get to know him better we will post updates.

RexRexRexRexRexRexRexRexRexRex
DESCRIPTION:

Rex is one of 22 dogs from the Carolinas that needed help due to Hurricane Florence. 

Rex is handsome boy who is looking for someone to bond with.  A family that will take him to training, provide structure and guidance.  As he is new to us we are still learning more about him, watch for updates.

Update:

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


Update:

Rex is slowly settling in to his foster home. This sweet boy must have had a very hard past because he’s just so confused in a home. He enjoys watching out the window and taking naps with his foster mom. Poor Rex is so scared of the steps and of the kitchen, but his foster mom is working with him to help him gain some confidence with that. Rex does well going into his crate, which is good because he will require crate restriction during his heartworm treatment. Rex is affectionate and enjoys attention from his human – he just wants someone to love him. Rex is a quiet dog and needs a quiet and more calm home life so he can continue to build confidence and learn to trust humans again. If you’re willing to be patient and give Rex a chance, please ask to meet him today.

DESCRIPTION:

Rhee lost her family and home as her Military family were stationed overseas until 2022.  Rhee was staying with a family friend but unfortunately did not adjust well and was not getting along with the other dogs in the home.  Rhee will require time to adjust to yet another change in her life, a family with patience that will provide structure is best.  She lived with children since she was 11 months old with no issues.  She has been through professional obedience training, but a refresher course with her new family is required.

DESCRIPTION:

Sheeba found herself at a shelter needing rescue.  She is a young, high energy, untrained pup that needs a family who will commit to training and providing her with structure.  It's obvious no one has taken the time to teach her manners.  She will require a family who has the time and patience it will take to burn off her energy by going for walks, playtime and of course training.  She is an absolute love, smothering people with puppy kisses and lobbying for your attention and affection.

ValerieValerieValerieValerieValerieValerieValerieValerieValerieValerieValerieValerieValerie
DESCRIPTION:

Valerie is one of 22 dogs from the Carolina's that needed help due to Hurricane Florence. 

She is a little skittish at this time which is understandable after all of the recent changes she has endured.  She can take a little bit of time to warm up to new people, but once she does she is very playful.  She also enjoys the company of other dogs.

Update:

Valerie is settling in to her foster home. She is quiet and a total sweetheart, but very skittish girl. Valerie loves her crate and dog bed, she's great walking and circles some because of different noises that startle her. Valerie is working on her obedience commands. Once Valerie gets to know her human, she greets tail wagging and loves to give kisses and get attention. Valerie also likes the resident dog and feels more comfortable having another dog around. At this time, Valerie is considered a high flight risk and needs a quiet and calm household, which is why we've marked her for older kids only. Valerie needs a patient human who will commit to her and love her and let her trust again. If Valerie sounds like a match for your family, and you can have the patience to go slow to gain her trust, ask to meet her.


Update:

Valerie is settling in to her foster home. Valerie is a warm, happy go lucky dog who loves attention. She loves being around her human friends. Valerie will be best suited for a house that has a fenced in yard because she likes some privacy when doing her business. She needs a sturdy plastic crate or stronger when left alone to keep her inside the crate. She enjoys the company of other dogs and would do well in a home with another dog and loves chasing each other around and playing. If you're willing to give Valerie a chance, please ask to meet her today!
