DESCRIPTION:

Cute little Zero was picked up as a stray with another dog in the south. Although he waited patiently for his family to claim him, when no one stepped forward Zero found himself in a difficult spot. Living in an overcrowded shelter and with limited options for moving forward, Zero needed a rescue to step up and help him move forward. When a plea was sent out for Zero, we immediately welcomed him into the MAGSR family. 

Zero is a young, energetic, and playful guy. A good athlete and an intelligent guy, Zero is looking for a family that can exercise both his body and his mind on a daily basis. Routine and structure will help Zero meet with success with his forever family. As we do not know anything about Zero's life prior to his arrival at the shelter, in many ways he is a clean slate. It will be important that Zero's family provide him with the time to adjust to his new life and decompress in his new home. This will help him thrive with his new family. In addition, Zero will benefit greatly from training as it will not only help him bond to his forever family but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. If you are looking for a young, active, and affectionate guy, ask to meet Zero today.

DESCRIPTION:

Mikey, his mom, and his six siblings - Amy, Rachael, Joe, Monica, Jill, and Phoebe - were dumped on a country road in the south. Covered in ringworm, emaciated, and clearly not well cared for, this little family needed help and quickly. Fortunately, a good samaritan found this family and got them to the safety of a shelter. Although shelter staff did a wonderful job getting this family the help they needed, they knew that moms and puppies do not belong in a shelter environment. As a result, a rescue plea went out. When we heard that this little family needed help, MAGSR immediately stepped forward. 

Mikey's loving, affectionate, and social. He is everything that a puppy should be. Although this little guy is a love, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy energy and antics. They get into things, whine, and will chew on inappropriate items. With time, patience, and training, Mikey will develop into the good canine citizen we know he is destined to become. Mikey is looking for a loving forever household that will commit to him for a lifetime. If your family is looking for puppy kisses, antics, and wiggles, please ask to meet Mikey today.

Updates:

Little Mikey is growing! He just graduated to his first “big” dog collar. He is very active and loves to be outdoors. His new family will need to keep his mind stimulated and his body in motion. He is learning to sit and come - what a quick learner he is!

DESCRIPTION:

Haru and several of his siblings were confiscated from their household as their family could not properly care for them. As is true of most shepherds, when moved out of his home and into a crowded shelter, Haru was scared. Fortunately, volunteers recognized that Haru was a special guy and spent some extra time supporting him. Recognizing that Haru would be most successful if transferred to a rescue, they reached out for help. We were happy to welcome Haru to the MAGSR family. 

Haru is a young, energetic guy. He enjoys the company of other people and other dogs. Although Haru did not have the care and consistency that a young GSD needs to meet with success, he is quickly adjusting to his new life. Haru is beginning to learn some basic manners but will need continued practice with his new family. Training will go a long way with this guy. A regular participant in doggy playgroup, Haru enjoys the company of other dogs particularly, his brother Haruto. Haru is looking for an active family that will provide him with the mental and physical exercise he needs to develop into a stable adult. If this sweet guy sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet him today!

DESCRIPTION:

Zulu is a special guy. This big, handsome boy was picked up as a stray in the south. Although it was highly evident that he needed some help, the shelter staff knew that had an amazing dog on their hands. Zulu has easily won the hearts of everyone who has met him. Recognizing that they simply didn't have the ability to meet Zulu's medical needs, the shelter reached out for rescue help. How could we possibly say no to this guy?

Zulu's has bacterial pyoderma. This means his body is suffering from an untreated skin infection. He had sores throughout his body with clusters on his belly, legs, neck, and back. In order to address his skin we did have to sedate and shave some areas. Zulu is now getting bathed every three days and his skin is starting to heal. On top of his skin issues, it was also discovered that Zulu is heartworm positive. Fortunately, his treatment is already moving forward and everything is going well. Zulu will need to take it slow for another month or two; however, he will be back to full strength soon.

Please consider donating to Zulu's care.

As a social guy, Zulu enjoys the company of everyone. He is even comfortable with kids! It is clear that somewhere along the lines this boy was given the opportunity to socialize with people of all ages. Not just a people person, Zulu also enjoys the company of other dogs. A playful guy, Zulu will happily play a game of fetch. He definitely understands the concept of toys. Having spent some time at the shelter, prior to his arrival at MAGSR, Zulu has begun learning a few basic commands. He, just like all dogs, will benefit greatly from training as it will help him bond with his new family as well as develop into a good canine citizen.

DESCRIPTION:

Otis and his brother were found as strays on a road in Afghanistan by US troops who took them in. Although their bodies told a story of a difficult upbringing, Otis and his brother are extremely affectionate and even tempered. Recognizing that the dogs would not survive if left behind, several service members coordinated and arranged for transport of both dogs back to the United States. Although this was no small feat, Otis and his brother arrived ready for their long awaited and much deserved forever homes. 

Otis recently joined the MAGSR family as it was felt that he would have his best chance at finding the perfect forever home through a rescue. This sweet, playful guy is a complete ham. He is a huge fan of attention and belly rubs. We have yet to meet anyone that Otis doesn't like. His social personality brings smiles to everyone around him. Although Otis is good with other dogs, he does need a home where he is the only dog or a home with female dogs. Otis, like all dogs, will thrive with structure, routine, and leadership. Training will go a long way with Otis as it will not only help him bond to his new family, but it will also help him become the good canine citizen we know he is destined to be. This sweet, resilient boy is looking for a loving forever family that will care for him for a lifetime. Could that family be you?

Updates:

Otis has been around the world and he is one of the happiest and most resilient dogs I have ever encountered. He is fully house and leash trained and a joy to walk as he experiences the world. He will benefit from a consistent, gentle hand to finalize his training but he is quick and eager to learn and please. He loves all people, children and other dogs.  He will do best in a setting where he can be active and outside.   Look up the breed Afghan Shepherd and you can learn more about this unique breed. He has the potential to be the best companion ever.

Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: No
Other Dogs OK: Yes
DESCRIPTION:

Scotty was a beloved member of his household. However, due to circumstances beyond their control, they could no longer provide him with the life that they knew he deserved. Recognizing that Scotty would be happiest if he found a new home, they made the difficult decision to surrender him to MAGSR. We promised Scotty's family that we would find him a safe and loving forever home. 

Scotty is a stable and inquisitive guy. He enjoys the company of his people and has grown up with little kids. Although Scotty is still learning leash manners, he is a quick study and is attentive to the handler. He should be a star in training class! Training will be essential for Scotty as it will not only help him to adjust to his new family but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. Having lived in a household, Scotty already knows many of the ins and outs of living in a home. He is housebroken and crate trained. However, as is true of any new dog, Scotty will need some time to adjust to his new home in order to meet with success. Scotty is looking for a forever family that will keep him safe and loved for a lifetime. Could that be with you?

DESCRIPTION:

Jodie and her siblings, Anna and Teddy Bear, were brought to a shelter when their owner passed away. Unfortunately, it was apparent that their owner had been struggling to care for these dogs for a while. Fearful and avoidant in the shelter environment, this little family needed out and fast. Knowing we could provide this family with the life and love they deserve, MAGSR welcomed them to the family.

Jodie is a sweet little lady but she is timid. Somewhat hand-shy, Jodie does well with a patient handler who will give her time to trust. Once comfortable, she warms up for love and attention. A big fan of kisses, Jodie is affectionate and cuddly with her people. Due to the condition in which she arrived, Jodie has needed a little extra TLC. She arrived sick with an URI and dirty from lack of care. Fortunately, our amazing vetting partners were able to help Jodie get the relief she needed. With time, patience, and a little support, Jodie is making steady progress. Jodie will thrive in a household that will provide structure, routine, and patience. Unfortunately, we have discovered that Jodie is heartworm positive. This condition could have been avoided had she been provided monthly heartworm preventatives. We have already begun Jodie's treatment. The cost of her entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but this lovely girl is beyond worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Jodie's treatment. Your generosity will help us save her and other dogs with medical needs. Although Jodie will need to take it slow over the next few months while she undergoes treatment, this will give her time to adjust to her new environment and meet with success in her forever home. Jodie is looking for a forever family that will provide her with the structure, patience, and love that she so clearly deserves. Could this be with you?

Obedience Trained: No, I'm a puppy!
Altered: Yes

Good With Kids: Unknown
Good With Cats: Unknown
Other Dogs OK: Yes
DESCRIPTION:

Pilot and his buddy, Jet, were picked up as strays and brought to a local shelter. Upon their arrival it was highly evident that these boys had not been treated well by their people. A little unsure about their surroundings, emaciated, and in poor health, shelter staff felt it would be best if these boys were placed with a rescue. When asked if MAGSR could work with the boys to move them forward, we immediately committed to them knowing that we could find these guys a safe and loving forever home. 

Pilot is a young, energetic, and playful guy. Although he can be a little shy at first, when given a little time to adjust, he comes around quickly for time and attention.  As a teenager, Pilot is still learning all the rules of living in a home. He will benefit from a household that will provide him with the structure, leadership, and consistency that all young dogs need. Pilot is lucky to be living in a loving foster home that is teaching him all about the joys of living in a household. However, just like any new dog, he will need to fine tune his skills in his forever home. Training will go a long way with Pilot. Not only will it help him bond with his new family but it will also help him develop into a stable and confident canine good citizen. If your family is looking for a young, active, and affectionate guy, ask to meet Pilot today.

Miss Jackie

Miss JackieMiss JackieMiss JackieMiss JackieMiss JackieMiss JackieMiss JackieMiss JackieMiss JackieJackieJackieJackieMiss JackieMiss JackieMiss JackieMiss Jackie
Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 8 years 4 months
Color: Black
Current Size: 60 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 60 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Partially
Altered: No

Good With Kids: No
Good With Cats: No
Other Dogs OK: No
DESCRIPTION:

Miss Jackie and her housemate, Mr. Jack, were used for puppies. Their lives have been filled with little care, comfort, or kindness. When their owner decided that it was time for them to move on, their future options were very limited. Fortunately, another rescue heard about their situation and reached out to MAGSR for help. 

Although we knew that both would need some additional love and attention, we also knew they deserved kindness and compassion. Miss Jackie is friendly, interactive, and goofy with her people. She seeks out attention from everyone around and is a bit of a social butterfly. Although Miss Jackie is wonderful with her people, she is not a huge fan of other furry creatures. With a high prey drive, Jackie likely needed this to survive the first 5 years of her life. As a result, she is looking for a home where she can be the sole focus of the family. Miss Jackie has done very well in her previous foster home. She is crate trained and house broken. However, once properly adjusted, she is able to move about freely in the house without causing issues when alone. Having lived in a household, Miss Jackie does understand the rules of living in a home; however, she will need to adjust to the general routine and structure of her forever home. An intelligent girl, Jackie has had some training and knows many of her basic commands. Further training is always positive as this will help Jackie exercise her mind as well as develop a healthy bond with her forever family. 

Miss Jackie is a lovely lady who is looking for a forever family that will provide her with the leadership, safety, and love that she so clearly deserves. Could this be with you?

Updates:

Miss Jackie is a very sweet girl. She seems to love all humans and loves attention. She is a laid back, easy going dog. She loves going for long walks. She likes playing with certain toys. She is housebroken and crate trained. Miss Jackie prefers male dogs over females, she can be quite reactive to female dogs. She will get along with most male dogs, but when she wants her own space she'll react. I think it's safe to say Miss Jackie likes being the boss and if she had her choice she would like to be the only dog in the house.

DESCRIPTION:

Little Summit was picked up on the side of the road and brought to a local shelter. Upon his arrival it was very apparent that Summit was in need of help and fast. Lethargic, dirty, and emaciated, shelter staff immediately began putting medical supports in place. When it was felt that Summit may be stabilizing, they reached out to MAGSR to see if we could bring this adorable little guy into our care so he could continue to get the support he needed in a more puppy friendly environment. We immediately welcomed Summit into the MAGSR family and placed him with an experienced foster family. 

Although Summit entered the rescue feeling a little more like a puppy, unfortunately, this did not last long. Recognizing that Summit was again in need of medical support, his foster family rushed him to the ER. He is currently hospitalized with one of MAGSR's fantastic internal specialists. We are running tests and providing Summit with supportive care while our veterinarians work hard to determine next steps. Although MAGSR will do everything we can to help Summit survive, this is a very expensive undertaking. Please consider donating to Summit's care. Your financial support will not only help Summit but it will also help us meet the needs of other medical dogs.

Updates:

Sweet Summit received some fantastic care while at the ER. His little body was given supportive care while x-rays were run and an ultrasound performed. Everything came back looking great. As Summit rested, his body had the chance to begin recuperating. When ready, he began eating again and his puppy-like charms emerged. Within 24 hours, Summit was released to his foster family. Since his arrival back in their home, Summit has been playing, eating, and interacting the way puppies should. A huge fan of toys, Summit happily moves from toy to toy making sure he gives a little attention to each one. He is goofy and playful but also loves snuggles with his people. An incredible house guest, Summit has been making huge progress with housebreaking. He has yet to have an accident in his crate and seems to understand that the outside is for taking care of business. Clearly intelligent, Summit is beginning to learn a few simple commands. Food, praise, and toy motivated, this little guy is going to be the star at training class. Although an absolute joy to be around, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy energy and antics. They get into things, whine, and will chew on inappropriate items. With time, patience, adn training, Summit will develop into the good canine citizen we know he is destined to become. Summit is looking for a loving household that will commit to him for a lifetime. Could that be with you?

As great as this news is, Houston and Zulu could still use your help.

Haruto is your typical young, energetic pup. He's playful and goofy personality easily wins over everyone around. Having had little routine or leadership prior to coming to MAGSR, Haruto will need to develop his manners in his new home. As is true of all dogs, training will go a long way for this guy. A regular participant in doggy playgroup, Haruto is a social guy particularly, when with his brother Haru. These two pups simply love to play together.

Good With Kids: Older kids, over 12
Good With Cats: Unknown

DESCRIPTION:

Beautiful Stella was found on the streets of a big, busy city. She was taken to a shelter with the hopes that her family would come and claim her. Unfortunately, no one came to get this lovely girl. Shelters have been quickly reaching capacity over the last few months and this shelter found itself in the same situation. Although they tried to help Stella find a loving forever home, shelter staff recognized that Stella would be more successful if she was transferred to a breed specific rescue. When we heard of Stella's need, MAGSR welcomed her to the family.

Stella is a gorgeous, playful girl. She can be timid and a little shy when first meeting new people. However, given time and patience, Stella's lovely personality will shine. Having participated in doggy play groups at the shelter, Stella enjoys the company of other dogs and has participated in many doggy play sessions. However, as is true of most dogs when she is tired, she will let the other dogs know she needs a break. As a young girl, Stella will benefit from continued socialization with people, other animals, and in a variety of environments. This will help her develop into a stable adult. Training will also be very important for Stella as it will help her bond with her new family as well as develop the skills needed to become a confident dog.

Unfortunately, we have learned that Stella is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided had she been provided with monthly preventatives. Stella's heartworm treatment has already begun and she is doing very well. The cost of her entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but this gorgeous girl is more than worth the cost. Please consider donating to Stella's treatment. Your generosity will help us save her and other dogs with medical needs. Although Stella will need to take it slow over the next few months, she will be back to full strength soon. Stella is looking for a loving forever home that will commit to her for a lifetime.

Other Dogs OK: Yes
DESCRIPTION:

Skye was surrendered to a shelter when her family could no longer provide for her. Fortunately, a foster family was able to step up and take her into their care so that Skye could remain in a household while she waited for her forever family. Unfortunately, due to a sad turn of events, Skye's foster was injured and could no longer take care of her. Recognizing that Skye was out of options, rescue groups in the area began searching for a placement in another region. When asked if we could bring this lovely girl into the MAGSR family, we immediately stepped forward. 

Skye is the sweetest, well mannered and tolerable girl. She is wonderful with small children, adults, and dogs, and even cats. Although it should be known that she does find the cats interesting. Having lived in a household, Skye is both housebroken and crate trained. She is comfortable and happy in her crate, on the floor, or even on the couch (if allowed). Lovable and affectionate, Skye is a big kisser but may be one of the sloppiest kissers you will ever meet. She is looking for a household that would appreciate a nice balance of playtime, training, and snuggles. 

We have learned that Skye is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided had Skye been provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. We have already begun Skye's treatment and the cost of her entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but this sweet little girl is beyond worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Skye's treatment. Your generosity will help us save her and other dogs with medical needs. Although Skye will need to take it easy over the next few months while she undergoes treatment, she will be an easy patient as she already knows so much about living in a home. Skye is looking for a forever family that will commit to her for a lifetime. Could this be with you?

DESCRIPTION:

Kaffee's family absolutely adored her. As a beloved member of their family, they made sure she had everything she needed and more. However, due to circumstances beyond their control, they were unable to continue to provide Kaffee with the life they knew she deserved. As a result, they surrendered her to MAGSR knowing that we would find her a loving forever family.  

As a more mature adult, Kaffee's stable and loving personality is a good match for any household. A total love-bug, in many ways Kaffee is the quintessential velcro dog that so many shepherd households come to expect. Fun, happy, and full of tail wags, Kaffee is an active girl who loves to play. She will even play a giggle-filled game of hide-and-seek for some high-value treats. She wanted you to know that hotdogs would be a great option when playing this game. A quiet house guest in her foster home. Kaffee is well mannered on leash. It is highly apparent that her family did a nice job teaching her the ins and outs of good canine citizenship. Although Kaffee already has a lot going for her, she will need to attend training. Training is essential as it will not only help Kaffee bond to her new family but it will also help her transition more smoothly. Kaffee is a big fan of children and does well with most dogs. She is looking for a home that will give her opportunities to go on car rides, play fetch, and soak up lots of love and attention. Kaffee will be a perfect addition to the right family, could that be with you?

Updates:

Kaffee quickly settled into her foster home and hasn’t shown any separation anxiety or difficulty adjusting. She is a very affectionate dog who loves to go on walks around the neighborhood, merrily greeting a wide variety of people and  dogs along the way. She is an easy, pleasant leash walker, never pulling or balking. At home she’ll play with her ball, catch popcorn, or quietly nap next to her people.

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Briscoe was trapped on the streets of a busy city along with his little family. When he first arrived at the shelter, he was quiet and shut down. There was simply so much going on around him and so many new people and sounds. Staff members did notice that although Briscoe was unsure he was beyond sweet. Once given a little time to adjust, Briscoe's calm and collected personality quickly emerged. Although Briscoe's puppies quickly found homes, he was left behind waiting for his turn to find a forever home. Recognizing that Briscoe deserved a loving home of his very own, we welcomed this boy into the MAGSR family. 

Both stable and affectionate, Briscoe's sweet eyes win everyone over. He has done well with people and children. It is hard not to fall for this guy. We have learned that Briscoe is heartworm positive. This condition could have been avoided had he been provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. MAGSR has begun his heartworm treatment and Briscoe is doing well. The cost of his entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Briscoe is clearly worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Briscoe's treatment. Your generosity will help us save him and other dogs with medical needs. Although Briscoe will need to take it slow over the next few months, he will be back to full strength once his treatment is finished. If your household is looking for a stable, loving guy, please ask to meet Briscoe today.

Good With Kids: Older kids, over 16

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Fred was confiscated due to cruelty and neglect. Due to court proceedings, this good looking guy waited for several months at a local shelter waiting for his chance at finding a family that would love and care for him for a lifetime. Once given the green light to move forward, shelter staff felt that Fred would have his best chance at finding his forever home through a rescue. When asked if we could help Fred find the perfect forever family, we immediately stepped forward. 

Fred is a very handsome guy who was clearly not cared for early in life. Undersocialized with people, he will require time and patience to adjust to new people and situations. Fred prefers a calm, slow handler at first as he gets his bearings. However, given time, structure, and leadership, he does begin to open up. As a young dog, Fred will thrive with routine. He will benefit greatly from training as this will not only help him bond to his forever family, but it will also help him develop the stability and confidence that all dogs need. Fred is looking for a forever home that will provide him with the love and safety he so clearly deserves. If your household sounds like the right match for Fred, ask to meet this boy today.

DESCRIPTION:

Junior and his siblings were part of an accidental litter. His family loved him greatly and took good care of him and his siblings. However, as the puppies grew older, it became difficult to take care of so many dogs. Recognizing that Junior and his siblings would be better able to receive the care and attention they deserved if they were rehomed, Junior's owner made the difficult decision to surrender the group of siblings to MAGSR. We promised that we would find each member of the family safe and loving forever homes. 

Junior is a love. He was well socialized in his home with kids and other dogs. However, his family struggled to find time to socialize him in the community. As a result, Junior can be a little timid with new people and in new places. Given time, patience, and guidance, Junior will develop the confidence he needs outside of the household. Just like any young dog, Junior will thrive with structure, routine and training. Training will help him to not only bond with his new family but also develop into the stable adult we know he is destined to be. If Junior sounds like the right match for your household, please ask to meet him today. 

 

Updates:

 Junior is a sweetheart that loves to be close to his human.  He is crate trained, housebroken and working on obedience.  He walks amazingly on a leash and would be a great walking companion with just a couple little tweaks.  Junior loves kids.  His favorite human in the house is the foster's daughter and her friends.  If you are looking for a loving family dog, this is your guy.  As you can see from his picture, he is just hanging out waiting for his forever home.

If you are looking for a sweet loving family dog then Junior is the one.  He loves all people and would welcome living in a home with another dog.  At his foster's he keeps the dad company during the day by laying at his feet under his desk while he works.  He loves snuggling, going for walks and helping his foster mom take care of the goats and chickens in the mornings. Junior is still not sure why the chickens need to follow him around on his walks :).  Junior has come a long way in his obedience, he will sit for his leash to be attached, he goes in the down position and walks nicely on the leash.  Since he is such a social butterfly, he does get excited when he sees other dogs but he is learning he needs to remain calm.  Junior is only a year old, so he would love to go running, long walks, playtime and of course snuggling with his human..  If he sounds like a fit, set up a meet and greet with this sweet boy.

DESCRIPTION:

Sally and her Cars Puppies were rescued in the south by another group. As they wanted to do right by this lovely family, they began reaching out to other groups who would be able to support the family until they were ready to find forever homes of their own. When asked to welcome this family into the MAGSR family, we immediately said yes. 

Sally was a known homeless dog in the community in which she lived. She often visited members of the community and was friendly and gentle. When Sally became pregnant, a community member began working with a rescue group to trap Sally and her family. It took some time; however, they met with success and Sally and her babies were ready to move forward to lives of comfort and safety. Sally is an incredible mommy. She has done a wonderful job caring for her 10 babies. However, she now deserves a family of her very own that will love and care for her with the same kindness she has shown her babies. In many ways Sally is still a baby herself. She will thrive in an environment that provides her with the structure, routine, and guidance that all dogs crave. Training will be key to Sally's success as it will not only help her bond with her new family, but it will also help her develop into the good canine citizen we know she is destined to be. If this lovely girl sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet her today.

Handsome Bruno was picked up as a stray in the south. This sweet guy immediately won over the hearts and minds of shelter staff.

When MAGSR heard about Bruno, we knew we could find him the perfect forever home.

Bruno is a young and playful guy. As is true of all young dogs, Bruno is energetic. His new family will need to exercise both his body and his mind regularly in order to help him develop into a stable adult. Bruno has shown to be friendly with everyone he meets. It is highly evident that he was socialized at some point. However, it is essential that his new family continue his socialization as he moves forward.

Although Sawyer is an absolute love bug, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy energy and antics.

DESCRIPTION:

Teddy Bear and his siblings, Anna and Jodie, were brought to a shelter when their owner passed away. Unfortunately, it was apparent that their owner had been struggling to care for these dogs for a while. Fearful and avoidant in the shelter environment, this little family needed out and fast. Knowing we could provide this family with the life and love they deserve, MAGSR welcomed them to the family. 

Teddy Bear is sweet but timid. He warms up for love and attention with a little patience. A big fan of kisses, this guy loves to come over for cuddles once comfortable. Due to the condition in which he arrived, sweet Teddy Bear needed to be shaved as his fur was so matted and dirty that it had caused a skin infection. Fortunately, our amazing vetting partners were able to help Teddy Bear get the relief he needed. With some regular baths, medication, consistent grooming, Teddy Bear is slowly healing. His lovely fur will grow back and he will once again have a magnificent coat. Unfortunately, we have also discovered that Teddy Bear is heartworm positive. This condition could have been avoided had he been provided monthly heartworm preventatives. We have already begun Teddy Bear's treatment. The cost of Teddy Bear's entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but this guy is beyond worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Teddy Bear's treatment. Your generosity will help us save him and other dogs with medical needs. Although Teddy Bear will need to take it slow over the next few months while he undergoes treatment, this will give him time to adjust to his new environment and meet with success in his forever home. Teddy Bear is looking for a forever family that will provide him with the structure, patience, and love that he so clearly deserves. Could this be with you?

DESCRIPTION:

Description: Elvis and Priscilla were abandoned by their family. Fortunately, when a good Samaritan found them, they moved quickly to get them help. Elvis and Priscilla were brought to a local shelter where staff immediately began addressing their needs. Underweight, under-socialized, and lacking vetting care, shelter staff recognized that Elvis and Priscilla would need some extra support to move forward. When contacted to see if we could help them find their forever home, MAGSR was happy to step up.  After several months in foster together and a trial separation it was determined that Elvis and Pricilla are not a true bonded pair as they do not appropriately care and nurture each other's needs.  In their best interest, MAGSR decided to separate them in order to find them the best permanent home possible for them to continue to grow and develop into beloved family pets.  

It is highly evident that Pricilla was not treated kindly by a male in the past as she is very fearful and nervous of men.  She will require a lot of time to build trust of any males in the household and bonds very quickly with a female handler.  She will need someone with experience to help build her confidence and earn her trust. She lacks appropriate social and behavioral skills towards both people and dogs but is not aggressive. Once she trusts you she is your quintessential velcro shepherd and will follow you everywhere.  She is weary of new people and will avoid them at all costs or will anxiously pace if she sees someone from a distance in the yard.  She would not do well in a city environment or in a busy household with kids running around.  She needs individualized attention and training to address her needs.  Pricilla is housebroken and crate trained.  She knows: sit, down, come and no.  She enjoys going for car rides and will lay down in the back for a quick snooze.  She LOVES all things that squeak to include balls, stuffed toys, rubber chickens etc.  Once you have Pricilla's trust she will greet you with tail wags, kisses, and want to curl up by your feet or next to you on the couch.   She has a sweet and inquisitive personality that is hard to resist. Training will go a long way in helping Pricilla build confidence and overcome her fears and anxieties.  Patience is key with this girl and you will have a loving and loyal companion.

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Lola was picked up as a stray in the south and brought to animal control. As is common with shepherds, she struggled at the shelter and needed out as soon as possible. Recognizing that Lola would have her best chance at finding the right forever home with a rescue, shelter staff put out a plea for Lola. MAGSR answered that call. 

Lola is an energetic, intelligent, and gorgeous pup. Curious and friendly with people, Lola is social. However, like many young dogs, Lola has not had the routine and structure that all GSDs crave. As a result, she will benefit greatly from training. Not only will this help Lola bond to her forever family but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. Fortunately, Lola's foster family has already begun this process and she is rising to the challenge. Lola enjoys the company of other dogs. She would be most successful with stable canine companions. Ready to put her past behind her, Lola is ready for her forever family. Could that be with you

DESCRIPTION:

Keanu was dumped in a cove in the south. While waiting for his family to return, he stayed close to the cove sleeping in an adjacent yard. During the day community members would find him walking about while always keeping close to the cove. Recognizing that this guy needed help, neighbors asked a local rescue to trap Keanu. Although scared, dehydrated, and hungry, Keanu was trapped and placed with a foster family who helped him decompress in safety. Once ready, they started contacting rescues for help as it was felt that Keanu would meet with greatest success in another region. When asked to welcome Keanu to the MAGSR family, we immediately stepped forward.

Keanu is a handsome and social guy. In his foster home he lived with several other dogs of different ages and sizes. Although he did very well, it is believed that Keanu would meet with greatest success if he were placed with other medium to large sized dogs simply because he is a big, goofy guy. A huge fan of playing ball, Keanu is hoping his new family has an affinity for playing fetch. He would also benefit from a family that has the time to exercise both his body and his mind on a daily basis. This will help him develop into a stable adult. Having lived in a foster family, Keanu has already started learning a few basic commands. He is a quick study and will be a star in training class. Training will not only help Keanu bond to his forever family but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. If your family is ready to provide Keanu with the structure, leadership, and routine that will help him thrive, ask to meet him today!

DESCRIPTION:

Odetta is a survivor. She was found living on the streets of a large city protecting three fluffy puppies. Recognizing that they needed help, animal control was called to help Odetta's little family find safety. They were brought to a shelter where the staff quickly recognized that this little family would have their best chance if they were transferred to a rescue. Odetta's puppies, Benceti, Pavys, and Thorson, have found loving homes; however, Odetta has needed additional support adjusting to her new life.

An intelligent girl who is also a problem solver, Odetta thinks through situations well and loves to work her way through specialized toys for treats. Although Odetta has some clear strengths, she did not have positive socialization with people prior to her arrival at the shelter. As a result she is very fearful and uncomfortable around people. At this time she is a high flight risk and will require training, patience, and structure in order to learn that people are safe and will attend to her needs. Although our volunteers are working very hard to help Odetta adjust to her new life, this is a slow process. 

When Odetta is ready for her forever home, she will be best suited for a family that has experience with fearful dogs. A quiet home without children would give Odetta the opportunity to adjust slowly. Odetta does seem comforted by other dogs and enjoys their company. Her anxiety level drops significantly when another stable dog is present. Although another dog in the home is not required, Odetta may benefit from the confidence that a second stable dog would bring. 

Please watch for updates as Odetta further develops her socialization skills.

DESCRIPTION:

Faith's family abandoned her when they moved to a new home. The new family that moved in immediately tried to scare her off the property. Although Faith would leave during the days, she would faithfully return home each night looking for her family. The new homeowners were not kind to her. They threw things at her and refused to get her help. After a year and a half of repeated abuse, an amazing group of rescuers heard about Faith's situation. Immediately putting together a plan of action, they trapped Faith and brought her to safety. Recognizing that Faith deserved the opportunity to live a life of love and kindness, a rescue plea went out. MAGSR heard Faith's story and immediately stepped forward. 

Although it is obvious that Faith has endured pain at the hands of people, she remains a sweet and loving girl. As is expected given her past, Faith will need a household that is willing to go slow and give her a chance to adjust to new people and new situations. Once able to trust her people, Faith greets you with tail wags and gentle kisses. Crate trained and housebroken, Faith does remember what it is like to live in a household; however, as is true of all dogs, she will need to further brush up on her skills. Living with other shepherds, kids, and cats, Faith is adjusting well to pack life but is not yet ready to relax completely. With patience, structure, routine, and training, Faith will develop the confidence she needs to be a good canine citizen. 

Faith is looking for a patient yet confident household that will help her continue to move forward. Could that be with you?

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet and sophisticated Russia was picked up by animal control in the south. Although Russia had been adopted out years earlier, it was highly evident that he had not been well cared for over the last few years. Thin, infested with fleas, and lacking basic care, this gentleman was in need of help and fast. Fortunately, the shelter began addressing his needs while they waited out his stray hold and began looking for rescue support. When no one came to claim Russia, MAGSR stepped in.

Although Russia had clearly been neglected this handsome gentleman is a loving and gentle soul. His easy-going mannerisms and affectionate attitude make him the ideal dog for many households. Russia already knows a few commands such as sit and paw. He loves to greet everyone and has no problem being the center of attention. Although Russia did have a family at one point, we do not yet know if he is housebroken or crate trained. We do know he rides in the car beautifully and is a gentleman on leash. As Russia's needs were clearly neglected, he is now getting the vetting he needs to move forward. Unfortunately, Russia did test heartworm positive. This diagnosis would have been avoided had he been provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. Russia has already begun his heartworm treatment and is doing well. The cost of his entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Russia is beyond worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Russia's treatment and care. Your generosity will help us save him and other dogs with medical needs. Although Russia will need some time to heal over the next few months, this sweet guy will be back to full strength when his treatments are completed. If your household is looking for a handsome and sophisticated gentleman, please ask to meet Russia today. 

Updates:

Russia has been in a foster home almost a week and he is settling in and I get to see more of his sweet personality each day. First thing anyone should know about him is that he loves nothing more than human love and attention.  He is a resilient boy, considering that humans in his past treated him poorly.   He just wants to be a velcro dog for someone. Even though he arrived underweight and loving food, from day 1 he would leave his food bowl to find me if I left the room. He compensates for my absence by bringing mouthfuls of food to me so he can eat in the same room. 
He is still skittish and cowers with fast movement or loud noise which is remnants of his past experiences that we are making progress with. Russia was placed on short term steroid and it a helping him be more comfortable/less itchy and requires more frequent trips outside for potty breaks. He has obviously been suffering for a long time and is missing fur. He is heartworm positive and MAGSR is paying for his treatment.   His first week here was filled with vet visits, x-rays, a bath (quite possibly his first in a looong time), and blood draws.  Through it all he has loved up on the vet and vet techs and they think he is the best dog ever.  That’s huge progress for a dog scared into cowering on the floor or running away when the TV turns on. It is clear he has had very little experience with indoor life but just as we mentioned before he is resilient and adapting to the wonderful life as a beloved family member. His soulful eyes just tug at your heart, Russia is patiently waiting for that special someone to shower him with all the love and attention he deserves. 

Don't let his age fool you, this pup has a lot more energy than first thought. As his health improves, so does his activity level. He bounces like a puppy when happy, throws and chases his stuffy, and jogs around the house when the mood strikes. He also has a touch of mischief hiding in him. I think he would make someone a great walking partner -- even speedwalker partner. We can't officially check that yet since he is still dealing with heartworms and has activity limitations but he shows every sign of being an energetic dog.

His fur is doing much better and although he will never get back some of his coat, he is furry again overall. He is also gaining confidence and doesn't run away all the way now. He barks at "intruders" and runs behind me to only come out and repeat the cycle. He is much more tolerant of hands moving around and rarely cowers now.  

He is also 90% house trained which is a vast improvement. He still piddels if very scared and he has had an accident when I broke routine and didn't head straight for the door first thing in the morning. I think he knows that he needs to go outside for the bathroom but doesn't yet understand that this means he isn't supposed to go inside, if that makes any sense. He sleeps nicely in the crate by my bed all night. If put in the crate during the day he whines and barks but doesn't chew or paw at the crate. 

Oh, and he sings! watch the video

Freedom!!! Well, sort of...

Russia has finished his strict kennel rest during heartworm treatment and is being allowed out for some walks and play. He is acting like a child who has been let out for school's summer vacation and can't get enough fun! He definitely needs some refresher training on how to walk nicely on a leash, but that is to be expected considering the last few months of strict rest. 

After a short bout of play with toys, or a romp in the yard, or a play fight with the other dog, it is time for some front porch sittin'. Now, if you are wondering what the difference is between sitting and sittin' you have to remember his southern upbringing. He likes to sit on the front porch (never the back), watch the world go by, chat with neighbors, and call out the young pups who dare come near his lawn. 

"In my day we knew how to bark correctly. Now a days these young pups cannot be bothered to send a pee-mail. What is this pee-tweet anyway?! In my day..." Yes, Russia, we know. Take it easy, I'm in the middle of writing something. 

Sittin' with his favorite drink (cool water if you please) he gets in his favorite spot, right up against the door in the shade, and will stay there until forced to come inside because it is time for food or it is getting too hot. 

He would really like a home of his own so he doesn't have to keep dealing with sharing a human with another dog. "That young pup needs to know his place in this pack! Biting my tail and taunting me..." Yes, Russia. 

As you can tell he likes to say his piece so I wouldn't recommend a townhome or an apartment building where dogs are not well-loved. However, while he has his curmudgeonly moments, he really does have the playfulness of a much younger dog and loves human companionship. He's looking for a family or person who can spend some time giving him a good scratch, some great treats, and hopefully, a front porch. He's the perfect blend of active dog who doesn't need a lot of exercise and relaxing porch (or couch) companion. Will you please open your home?

Hi! My name is Xeda! I’m 7 years old and I'm a survivor. Over the last few years I've been on my own. Fortunately, I met with the right people at the right time and they have helped me move forward. I’m looking for a family that will love me forever. I know MAGSR will help me find the right match.

Although I have lived with other dogs in my foster home, I’d prefer to be the only dog in your house so you can focus all of your attention on me!! When it comes to small animals, such as cats and bunnies, they are a lot of fun to chase. So, I am told that I need a home without these temptations. When it comes to human interactions, I am a big fan of older kids, but younger ones startle me and make me nervous. Perhaps it is how quickly they move about. With my people I am social and sometimes talkative. I do have a lot to say sometimes particularly when I'm excited.

In case you didn't know, I really like living in a household.  I haven’t had any accidents in the house and I’m very good at waking my foster mom and dad in the morning to let them know I’m ready to go out and ready for breakfast. Although I'm not surprised, my foster family loves to compliment me on my leash manners. I've got the concept of walking on a leash down pat. They smile a lot when I respond to a few commands. I am ready to learn more and am sure I will bring more smiles when I do. When it comes to my favorite things, I absolutely love to be outside. I could lay about and soak up the sunshine for hours if they would let me. My foster mom says it’s too hot for me to stay out too long though. I also love to carry my toys all around and show them off! They simply bring me joy. If you are looking for a sweet, loveable snuggle bug, I might be the right match for you!

Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 7 years 6 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 65 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

Good With Kids: Yes, older kids
Good With Cats: Unknown
Other Dogs OK: Yes
DESCRIPTION:

*Update* Tasha’s fosters are thrilled that this precious girl is heartworm free!  She is looking for a forever home where she can enjoy company most of the day with hugs and head-to-head snuggling.  She’s a low to moderate energy GSD and is gentle in all ways.  While she has not shown much interest in other dogs, her fosters continue to work on her socialization skills.   She enjoys walks that give her opportunities to sniff and stroll and is not affected at all by other passing dogs.   Training also continues as we all work together on basic commands.

Tasha is a survivor. After being horribly neglected, she was dumped at a vet with her two pups where the entire family was to be euthanized. Fortunately, another rescue learned of this little family's plight and was able to save them in time. Tasha's puppies were able to find families quickly. However, Tasha needed some additional care as her body had endured significant neglect. 

With the help of another rescue, Tasha was nursed back to health. She received the medical care and kindness that this beautiful girl so clearly deserved. Although Tasha has experienced cruelty at the hands of people, she remains loving and attentive. She enjoys the comforts of a soft bed and head rubs. Although we are still learning about this lovely girl, she amazes us with her sweet temperament. If Tasha sounds like the right match for your household, please ask to meet her today. 

Updates:

Tasha has made significant progress since her arrival at MAGSR. She is affectionate with her people and has learned to enjoy toys and treats. A big fan of snuggles, Tasha is more than happy to bury her head in your lap just to get some extra love. Although playful, Tasha is not a high energy dog. She enjoys play time and outings but is also content to hang out with her people. As is typical of most GSDs, once comfortable, Tasha will protect her household and property. Not all shepherds want to socialize with people outside of their immediate family. Although Tasha is a friendly girl and does well out and about, she may do best being put away when visitors come to the house. Training will go a long way with Tasha as it will teach her to look to the handler for direction and leadership. Tasha is looking for a family that will commit to her for a lifetime. If Tasha sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet her today.

Tasha is a sweet girl who immediately wanted to be with her new foster parents. When we are in different parts of the house, she often plops downs at the vantage point allowing her to keep tabs on both of us.  Of course she may just be afraid of missing a meal!  But “head cuddles” are very satisfying to both parties.  She is fine being crated at night as long as we leave a light on, but would probably be happier as close as possible to her people. Her walks throughout the day sometimes lets her meet new people—passing trucks and exuberant dogs, not so fun. 

Walking on a lead is coming along nicely. Tasha is also still learning what she needs to know to be a polite, safe member of the household. She is low energy now, but as she gets healthier I’m sure she will find the happier, more active Tasha inside. 

Tasha shows her sweet, gentle personality even in adversity, such as when she’s had a tough vet appointment.  She has been a lovely roommate, and is starting to sit before being invited outside or getting her food and she comes when she is called.   Tasha seems very happy to meet people, but due to heartworm restrictions on activities, we have not yet tried to socialize her with other dogs, cats, or babies.  Though the heart worm treatment has meant she is to stay calm and quiet, it seems fine with her. Tasha has finished her heartworm treatment and we are getting back into walks although, keeping them short and slow for now.  Tasha has not expressed any interest in toys, but she likes to keep track of her foster parents.  She is easy to walk on a leash, and seems ok to be crated at night, especially now that she knows our schedule and can count on us to let her out in the morning.  She’s a beautiful, darling girl.

Tasha is still waiting for her forever home - are you looking for a sweet, loving companion? Tasha loves to go for walks, snuggle with her humans. She is very laid back and a gentle soul. Tasha also has a lot of grace. When she first came to stay with us she showed us that she knows how to untangle her legs from the leash with ease. Her fosters have not seen her swim but the second she steps into a creek she lies down with a look of pure bliss like she is getting a spa treatment. Oh, and she took it upon herself to eradicate the Brood X cicadas (I think she did it!) From reading her bio, you will see she came from a life of neglect. She has shown perseverance and she would love to be adopted and live out her life with a family that is hers. If you are looking for a low key, sweet loving girl to take on long walks and shadow you in the yard while you work then please reach out so you can meet her.

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Heartland was picked up as a stray by another rescue. Although they contacted the local shelter and tried to find his family, no one came to claim this sweetheart. Fortunately, Heartland had a safe place to stay while he waited for his forever family. Although Heartland was well cared for by the other rescue, they felt that Heartland would have his best chance at finding a family in another region. As a result, MAGSR was asked to help Heartland move forward, we were happy to help this sweet guy move forward.

Heartland is a social guy. He enjoys the company of other dogs and people. Participating regularly in a playgroup while waiting to arrive in MAGSR's care, Heartland is simply a social butterfly. Although we know Heartland is a neat guy, we do not know if he has ever lived in a household. In many ways he is starting with a clean slate. As is true of all young dogs, Heartland will benefit from structure, routine, and leadership. This will help him adjust to his new household. Heartland will also benefit from training as this will help him bond to his new family, as well as, develop into a good canine citizen.

Unfortunately, Heartland is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if he had been given monthly heartworm prevention. at this time Heartland is already halfway through his treatment. Although treatment is expensive, sweet heartland is beyond worth the cost. Please consider donating to Heartland's treatment. Your generosity will help us save him and other dogs with medical needs. Although Heartland is taking it easy right now, he will be back to full strength in a little over a month. If your household is looking for a social butterfly, ask to meet Heartland today.

DESCRIPTION:

Izzy Bee and her brother, Asher, were well-loved members of their family. However, due to circumstances beyond their control, Izzy Bee and Asher's family was not able to continue to care for them. As a result, they made the difficult decision to surrender both dogs to MAGSR. We promised Izzy Bee and Asher's family that we would find them an amazing forever home that would care for them for a lifetime. 

Izzy Bee is a friendly girl. She enjoys the company of her people and other dogs. Having grown up with Asher, Izzy Bee has grown accustomed to the presence of another dog. However, she would also do well as the only dog in the household so that she can enjoy all of the attention. Izzy Bee lived on a large piece of land and enjoyed romping and playing about outside. Although Izzy Bee loves to be outside, she hasn't had a lot of experience on a leash. Our volunteers have already begun teaching Izzy some leash manners. However, she will benefit from further training with her new family. Training will not only help Izzy bond to her new family but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. Izzy Bee is looking for a loving family that will provide her with the structure, leadership, and routine that all dogs crave. If Izzy Bee sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today.

DESCRIPTION:

Annika was returned to MAGSR's care after incidents with the other dog of the household, as well as the cat. She will be looking for a forever family where she can be the sole animal in the home to be the center of attention. 

Annika is a beautiful young adult with a big personality. She is extremely intelligent and observant of her environment. She also forms strong bonds with her humans and is very affectionate. Annika will be protective of the house once she sees it as her place. She will thrive with a confident handler and structured training to bring out her potential, because she lives for meaningful interactions with her people. She is active and a jumper, and may be a candidate for agility training or other activities that engage her intelligence.

She loves tummy rubs and affection, walks, and interactive games. She learns quickly when pepperoni treats are on hand, and will even play a good game of hide and seek the treat. Annika likes her crate and is fully house trained. She walks well on the leash, learns commands quickly, loves car rides and exploring new environments like trails and parks.

If sweet Annika sounds like the right match for your family, please ask to meet her today. 

Updates:

Annika continues to practice and learn commands - including sit, stay, lie down, go to bed (she runs into her crate), go find (hide and seek treats), and when waiting for the walk signal at intersections she’ll sit with a snap of the fingers. With a few taps to your shoulder she’ll snuggle up and fall asleep. She loves her humans and is forever ready for a walk, demonstrating excellent leash walking manners (until a squirrel crosses her path, but who could blame her for wanting to catch one?). She has no problem meeting other dogs on walks, she simply doesn’t wish to live with them. Annika is thoroughly house trained, staying at home for hours on her own snoozing on the couch until it’s time to greet you at the door with eager tail wags.

DESCRIPTION:

Harley has been a cherished member of her family for the past 5 years. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, Harley's family was no longer able to provide her with the life that they knew she deserved. Recognizing that Harley deserved more than they could give, her family made the difficult decision to return her to MAGSR. We promised Harley's family that we would find her a loving and safe forever home. 

Harley is a sweet and affectionate girl. She has the benefit of living in a home where she has been socialized with kids, cats, and other dogs. In fact, Harley has had the opportunity to participate in regular doggy day care field trips for several years and absolutely loves these days. She can't help but get excited around other dogs, that's just what social butterflies do. As Harley's family knew they wanted the best for her, they made sure she learned her commands and even added in a few tricks. Harley has a solid understanding of the leash and enjoys her daily outings. Although Harley has a solid foundation already, it will be important that her new family take her to training. This will not only help her further brush up on her skills but it will also help her bond to her new family. We are sure that Harley will be the star of the class. Having lived in a household, Harley understands the rules of living in a home. She is housebroken and crate trained. Her crate is her happy space and Harley can often be found in it snuggled up and either napping or just hanging out. Harley is looking for a family that will continue to cherish her and provide her with the love and attention she so clearly deserves. If Harley sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today.

As is true of any young dog, Jasmine will thrive with training and consistency. Not only does Jasmine enjoy the company of people, she also enjoys the company of other dogs.

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet little Ash was picked up as a stray in the south. This cute little guy was brought to a crowded shelter where staff knew he would need a little extra TLC so that he could find a forever home that would love him for a lifetime. Recognizing that Ash should be transferred to a rescue, they reached out to MAGSR for help. We knew this little guy would be a great addition to the MAGSR family.

Ash is an absolute sweetheart but it is clear that he has lived through some difficult circumstances in his short life. As a result, he is definitely a shy guy. Often choosing the comfort and safety of his crate as a refuge while he adjusts, Ash is a quiet and somewhat timid guy. It will be critical that Ash's forever family work with him on socialization with people and other animals. This is essential for all young dogs as it helps them develop into confident and stable adults. Training will also be key for Ash as it will help him bond to his forever family as well as learn the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. Ash is looking for a loving forever family that will give him the time, patience, structure, and love he needs to blossom. In return he will provide a lifetime of love and loyalty. If Ash sounds like the right match for your household, please ask to meet this little honey today. 

Updates:

Ash is doing well transitioning to his foster home. He enjoys following the other dogs and prefers their company over human companionship at this time. He really enjoys running and playing in the yard, resting with a Nylabone as well as the safety of his crate. Ash is very nervous and shy around people. He is not aggressive, and will go into his crate when feeling scared. He will need a calm and patient family to give him time, training and structure. He would love to have a playful canine sibling as a good role model. He would do best with older calm children As he is not aggressive but very scared about sudden actions and loud noises.

However, he would also do well as the only dog in the household so that he can enjoy all of the attention. Although Asher did live with a small child, he is uneasy around little kids.

Good With Kids: Yes

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Zendaya was picked up as a stray in the south. The shelter director couldn't believe that this little girl wasn't claimed as she is simply a love. Unfortunately, due to extensive overcrowding, once Zendaya's stray hold was up, she needed a rescue pull. MAGSR couldn't help but fall in love with this little girl. We were so very excited to welcome her to the MAGSR family. 

Zendaya is a little honey. Her sunshiney personality brings light and joy to everyone around her. A big fan of attention and belly rubs, Zendaya happily flops over for as much love as she can possibly get. Although we do not know anything about Zendaya's past, it is highly evident that she was socialized with people and dogs. She plays very well with others. Although Zendaya is a doll, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy energy and antics. They get into things, whine, and will chew on inappropriate items. With time, patience, and training, Zendaya will develop into the good canine citizen we know she is destined to become. If this little girl sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet her today!

Updates:

Zendaya needs your help, please donate now.

Sweet Zendaya apparently contracted an upper respiratory infection somewhere in her travels and it, unfortunately, developed into pneumonia.  She had a hacking cough, purulent nasal discharge, sneezing, difficulty breathing and lethargy (for a puppy).  Despite all of this, she continued to act much like a happy puppy but a low energy one.  Her foster took her to the vet.  She was started on antibiotics and the vet recommended x-rays.  MAGSR immediately agreed to the x-rays and thank goodness we did.  The x-rays clearly demonstrated just how sick this little one was.  She was taken to the emergency clinic and started on intravenous antibiotics and fluids.  The emergency staff were smitten with her exuberant personality.   Fortunately, she only needed a one night stay and was sent home after 24 hours with more antibiotics.  She'll need follow-up x-rays in two weeks.  Her foster reports that her energy level has increased but to what level?  We're really not sure but those IV antibiotics really seem to have made a difference.  

Zendaya is a young girl and is going to have lots of energy to burn.  She has no training and has learned to sit but when her food bowl is involved it's more of a kangaroo jump/sit.  She is treat motivated.  She doesn't have any leash manners and leashing has been a little bit of a challenge as any compression on her trachea produced coughing.  This sweet girl will need lots of structure and training.  She is smart, sweet and beautiful and has so much to learn.  She gets along fine with the resident dogs and is conflict avoidant.  She is looking for a forever home to provide a lifetime of love and adventures.  Could this be you?
