DESCRIPTION:

Guinevere was found in a field and very pregnant.  She was taken to a shelter where she went into labor and delivered 7 adorable German Shepherd mix puppies.  We have no idea who daddy was.  Guinevere and her puppies are being well cared for by a loving foster family.  Guinevere is a fabulous mom, she takes such good care of her babies.  She is so sweet and gentle and loves getting attention and help from her foster family.  Guinevere is not in the greatest of condition, she is underweight and has a case of mange which causes her to be very itchy.  This does not stop her from being an amazing mom.  Guinevere is receiving the medical care she needs, high quality nutrition and exceptional care.  The puppies will be available for adoption Dec. 10, 2017, so if you are interested put in your application now.  Once Guinevere is done with motherhood she will be available for adoption.  Keep an eye out for pictures and updates of the puppies and this adorable family.

Giselle
GiselleGiselleGiselleGiselle
DESCRIPTION:

Giselle found herself as a stray at a shelter so we have no prior history on her.  She is a young energetic girl with beautiful markings.  Giselle is in need of training as she can be mouthy when excited and doesn't know that jumping on people is not acceptable.  It's obvious no one ever took the time to teach her good canine manners, but with direction from her new family she will learn all that she needs to know.  She would do best with a family that has the time and energy to provide for a young active dog.

Sonic is going home!
SonicSonicSonicSonicSonicSonicSonicSonicSonicSonicSonicSonicSonicSonicSonicSonic
DESCRIPTION:

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

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

Grizzly is going home!
GrizzlyGrizzlyGrizzlyGrizzlyGrizzlyGrizzlyGrizzly
DESCRIPTION:

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

Cyrus
CyrusCyrusCyrusCyrus & Foster Bro, SHermanCyrus
DESCRIPTION:

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

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

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

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

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

  • He is an awesome dog. He is happy to be with his people and a playful goofy puppy. He loves marrow bones with peanut butter and playing with toys in general. He also loves to give HUGS!  He does better in a vari-kennel as opposed to a wire crate. He has not had any accidents in the house.  We are working through his crate anxiety. We play music for him, have used lavender in the room to soothe him and calming treats bought at Pet Value and we have not had issues with him breaking out of our crate. He absolutely loves car rides and meeting new people! He does have some bad habits such as counter surfing but he easily corrects. He does still need strong guidance as he does tend to want to push him limits as he is a young male full of life!!

Dasha

ADOPTED 11/29/2017!

Breed: German Shepherd Dog

DashaDashaDashaDashaDashaDashaDasha
DESCRIPTION:

Dasha found herself dumped at a shelter.  She is a gorgeous long hair 5 year old girl.  She has not had the best of care, her coat sparse, full of dirt and fleas.  She has some hair loss, a skin and ear infection from flea dermatitis and poor nutrition.  She is now being well cared for in her foster home.  She has been treated for fleas and her skin infection and she is eating a high quality food with some supplements.  She needs to gain some weight and grow back some of her coat but she is beautiful regardless.  She enjoys playing with other dogs but can sometimes be bossy and pushy.  She would do best with a non dominant dog, as she wants to be the queen.

Updates:
  • I’m settling in at my foster-home with my foster brother. I love to cuddle, have my belly rubbed and my nose scratched. I love taking long walks and playing with my foster brother. At first I wasn’t sure about playing with toys but now I love playing with tennis balls. My foster Mom took me to the vet to get medicine to help fur grow back and now I look so much better and my fur is so soft. I’m gaining weight and getting better with basic commands but I still have a lot to learn. 
     

  • I’m doing great at my fosters house. My fur has all grown back and I had to have 6 teeth pulled because I wore them down so much. It doesn’t bother me at all that I have missing teeth you just have to hold you hand flat for me if you have a small treat. I love meeting new people when my fosters take me places with them and I love riding in the car. I’m doing better and better every day with my basic commands and I really want to learn more. My foster Mom say I look funny when I play fetch because I try to catch the ball with my paws and mouth at the same time. I can’t wait to find my forever home and to have someone to love!

  • I’m doing great at my fosters but I hope to find my forever home soon. I love kids and I’m good with cats. I love going on adventures, meeting new people (especially kids), playing fetch with my foster and with myself and playing with my fosters dog Jake. I'm good at walking on a leash and I’m getting better with my basic commands every day. I can’t wait to take a class so I can learn so much more.

BlitzBlitzBlitzBlitzBlitzBlitzBlitzBlitzBlitzBlitz
DESCRIPTION:

Blitz was found dumped on the side of the road, very scared and confused.  This sweet boy is deaf and was alone it was no wonder he was scared.  Don't let the idea of a deaf dog scare you from adopting him, they can be easily trained with the use of a vibration collar and hand signals.  Blitz didn't deserve to tossed away like trash, he is a sweet and loving puppy who will make a wonderful family member.  He is currently in a foster home getting use to his new surroundings and of course living the good life he so deserves.  Please open your heart and home to him, he will be forever grateful.

Updates:
  • Blitz loves to play, when he’s not running around with one of my dogs he is following me around being jovial. He is housebroken, he makes it through the entire night. He has not had one accident since he has gotten here.He’s great on the leash, he doesn't pull but walks beside you. He loves to chew on bones and is really good at figuring out what’s his and what isn’t.He is also a big teddy bear, he loves to snuggle and give Eskimo kisses.

  • Blitz just loves toys and balls - he sorts through the toy box to find just the right one to play with each time.  Blitz is very friendly and social and is happy playing with his foster fur-sibling and doesn't mind being in the crate either. If Blitz sounds like a good fit for you, ask to meet him today.

Nala
NalaNalaNalaNalaNalaNalaNalaNalaNala
DESCRIPTION:

Nala was surrendered to a shelter as her family was moving.  Sweet Nala was so frightened at the shelter, her world was turned upside down.  She would love to be out of a kennel and back into a home with a family of her very own, one that will cherish her for her lifetime.  She may very well be house broken, as she keeps her kennel area clean and waits to be taken outside to go potty.  She is young, full of energy and puppy playfulness.  Of course she requires training to learn good canine manners and leash skills.

TreyTreyTreyTreyTreyTrey
DESCRIPTION:

Trey is a sweet 7 month old black & tan bi-color.  He is still very much a puppy, full of playfulness and puppy antics.  He has a lot to learn and that is where training comes in.  He will learn good manners, leash skills and obedience all while creating a bond with his new family.  Direction, consistency, exercise, walks, playtime and love for his lifetime, are you ready to make the commitment....if so ask to meet Trey

Updates:
  • We've had Trey for nearly a week and he has been great.  He gets along well with our resident dog as well as other dogs he met at a local park.  He has shown no signs of aggression, quite the opposite, his tail is in constant motion and loves attention and playing with our dog (we have no idea what he'll do around cats). He has taken to crate training nicely and there have been no accidents.  In his short time with us he has learned sit and is getting better about walking on a leash, he appears quite happy to be engaged with training.  All indications are he'll make a fantastic addition to your family.

Emory
EmoryEmory Emory Emory Emory
DESCRIPTION:

Emory is a big, sweet, fun loving 10 month old puppy. How this handsome boy ended up as a stray and in a shelter is beyond us. He has all of the mannerisms of a puppy, playful and goofy. He is looking for a family who will provide him with training, guidance, playtime, walks, love and care for his lifetime.

Updates:
  • Emory is a goofy little boy that loves attention and sometimes wishes he was a lap dog. He wants to be where you are at all times, but is also fine staying in a crate while you're away. He loves to run and play with chew toys.  He is housebroken and working on basic commands, but will benefit from more obedience training.  He gets along very well with other dogs.  He wants to meet every person he sees.  He will shy away from strange, loud noises, and if he thinks he's done something wrong he'll run a short distance away and sit down until you go over and comfort him. With some more training and confidence building he will be a loyal, loving companion for his lucky new family.

Zale
ZaleZaleZaleZaleZaleZaleZale
DESCRIPTION:

Zale found himself in a shelter after being picked up as a stray. He is a very handsome young Belgian Malinois. Right now he is skittish and scared, which comes with all of the changes he has been through. He is being given time to adjust to his new surroundings. While Malinois' may look similar to German Shepherds they are not the same dogs. They are often times high energy requiring extended daily exercise and activities, they need ongoing training and socialization with people and other dogs. They are active, loving and enjoy having a job. Malinois' are not for someone who is looking for a laid back, couch potato. Zale will need a family that can meet his needs both physically and mentally.

Updates:
  • Zale is a very friendly guy. He is non aggressive to other dogs and friendly with all people. He hasn’t spent much time inside and is learning about stairs, doors and reflective surfaces. Despite this, his manners are pretty good - he lets you know when he needs to go out, was impeccable at the vet and will only chew on his dog toys. He is a high energy boy and wants to go go go! Yet he is also happy to climb into your lap for a shoulder hug and a few kisses. If you’re looking for a hiking or running partner and want a loving companion- Zale is you dog!!

  • Zale has been introduced to many new things and has proven to be curious and not reactive. He has met kids, big and toddler size, cats and very small dogs; he has been to the pet store and behaved impeccably; and he has good leash manners and has mastered the “release” command. Everyone who meets him says he is beautiful, sweet and love his hugs and kisses. He likes to chew and needs options so he doesn’t pick the wrong thing to chew like his dog bed. He crates well and is a quick learner. What is not to ​love about Zale?!​

DESCRIPTION:

Kimbra was found as a stray along with Admiral.  We are not sure if they lived together but they seem very close and enjoy each other's company.  From what we know of her so far, she seems sweet with a friendly disposition, she is good with other dogs.  Of course she will need to attend training classes so that she can be the best she can be, training also helps with creating a strong bond with her new family.

 

Updates:
  • I had the pleasure of walking Kimbra this morning. She is so sweet, smart, and loving. She loves tummy rubs and smiles while she revels in the joy. She walks well on leash, too. She knows sit, down, and roll over.

OttoOttoOttoOttoOttoOttoOtto
DESCRIPTION:

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

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

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

Celia_profileCeliaCeliaCeliaCelia
DESCRIPTION:

Celia found herself in a shelter after found wandering on her own. Her age is estimated at a year old but she could be younger. She is friendly and happy along with being beautiful. While at the shelter she kept her kennel area so she may be housebroken. Life on the run is no way to live, Celia wants the love and care of a family, a comfy bed, toys, exercise, good food and training.

Updates:
  • Hi I'm Celia!  I just love living in a house with comfy beds and chew toys. My foster mom always tells me what a good girl I am and how I have excellent house manners. I'm housebroken, I don't beg at the dinner table or jump on furniture, although I'm sure your bed would be very comfy.  I can be a little timid around new visitors, but give me a treat and pet me and I will be your friend.  I love spending time outside on the deck and going for walk​s, but I could improve my leash skills, although my foster mom tells me I've improved a lot (I'm working on my basic commands too).  Please ask to meet me!!

ArrowArrowArrow
DESCRIPTION:

Arrow was found on a road with his leg severely broken, dragging it.  He was rushed to the emergency vet but unfortunately there was nothing that could be done to save his leg.  His leg was amputated 10/15/2017.  He is doing very well as a tri-paw, he gets around, can climb up and go for walks.  He is such a sweet and loving boy, he smoothers everyone he meets in kisses.  He is resting comfortably in a foster home recovering from his surgery.  As the trip was long to get Arrow to us, we were very blessed to have a pilot and his wife with Pilots and Paws fly round trip to pick him up to get him to us.  He did so well on his very first flight and greeted everyone with tail wags and kisses.  Once his sutures are removed Arrow will be free to live life like any 4 legged dog.  Tri-paws adapt very quickly and do not let a missing leg hold them back.  Ask to meet this special boy, we are sure he will amaze you and steal your heart.

AprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilAprilApril
DESCRIPTION:

April's life is forever changed, thanks to those who saved her from horrid and unsafe living conditions.  It is amazing that with all that April has endured she is so incredibly sweet and wants to be loved and properly cared for.  April deserves a family who will provide a wonderful life for her, one full of love and a commitment for her lifetime.  

Updates:
  • Lovely April is a remarkable girl. Like many pups before her, April seems to know she has been rescued and will never be subjected to the horrible conditions from which she survived. She enjoys the company of everyone she meets and seems grateful to anyone who notices her. April tends to take most things in stride. Having to learn the ins and outs of a new home can be unnerving; however, April seems excited to have the opportunity to enjoy the good life. She has discovered the joy of a good bone, soft bed, and plenty of toys. Living with other dogs, April is slowly learning the ins and outs of pack life. We are very impressed with her playful nature. April is goofy yet affectionate. She will happily sit for as long as you'll allow while you rub her beautiful ears. If this amazingly girl sounds like a match for your family, please inquire about her today.

  • I have spent some time with April the last two Saturdays. Her behavior has been great both days.  Yesterday she patiently sat in her "run" while I leashed her up, even though another dog had been brought into the kennel area and they were all barking about it.  She is eager to please and knows quite a few commands, sit, down, an elementary stay, and come. It has been easy to get her attention. She takes treats gently, loves to have her ears rubbed and can be a leaner.  She has also been fine about other dogs being in her general area while we are out and about in the field. We are working on leash walking, she wants to pull ahead a bit, but no lunging. She is content to walk, work on commands, be brushed or just chill out by the picnic table.

Gatlin
GaitlinGaitlin
DESCRIPTION:

Gatlin, puppy to a female GSD and male Great Pyrenees, was dumped at a shelter.  Gatlin cannot be any cuter and is absolutely a great little boy, happy go lucky and loves to give puppy kisses.  Gatlin has a lot to learn about going a good canine citizen and will require training.  Please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family - puppies are a 10-12 year commitment.  Puppies are full of energy and can be mischievous – they will whine, have accidents, get into things, and chew on inappropriate things.  With time, patience, guidance and training, Gatlin will become even more of an amazing boy than he already is.  If interested and he sounds like a good match for your family, please submit an adoption application for Gatlin!

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

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

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

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

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

Sam Adopted
SamSamSamSamSamSamSamSam
DESCRIPTION:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • Meet AWESOME Sam!  Guess what---I know sit, stay, paw, down and I come when called!  Some friends took me out for the day and they discovered I know all of these commands and more!  I know how to speak on command and if you ask me to smile I will give you one bark—its’ not really a smile because I don’t show my pretty teeth but it is so cute J  Someone loved me so much that they spent a lot of time training me.

     

    My friend took me to a horse show and I was out and about with horses, people and other dogs. I was even polite to those little dogs that don’t really look like dogs to me J   I was amazing and she was so impressed with me.  She took a photo of me hanging out with a horse. I am good with cats too!   Neither one of my new friends can take their dogs out in public—LOL!  I rode great in the car with my friend and I was so good on a leash at the horse show.  Most dogs can’t do what I did that day.

     

    I am over the top impressive with the STAY command---I stayed with tons of distractions in my friend’s back yard.  There were people walking down the street with dogs, joggers, lawn mowers buzzing around but I STAYED until I was released.  Next they did a series of recalls with me just to make sure that I would come when called.  I came every single time they called me---they tried to trick me and one hid on the side of house so I could not see her but I came when she called.  Every single time I came to them the girls made me do a sit and then a down.  They wanted to make sure that I was SUPER SMART and I am!!!!!        The girls gave me treats for my impressive behavior and they discovered that I take treats gently.  My  mouth is super gentle and my new friend was so impressed---sometimes she calls her dog Jaws because he takes treats so hard which is so impolite.  Then the girls pulled out the dog puzzles and I started to excel playing the Brick game by Nina Ottosson and then came the Bob-a-Lot which I got in a New York minute!

     

    I am good with kids too!  What’s not to like about me---come meet me!  Everyone is special but I am super special because I am trained, housebroken, can go out in public, like people, cats and kids and I am very handsome and loveable!

Harley
Harley
DESCRIPTION:

Harley was surrendered to us after almost being hit by a motorcycle.  She is extremely skittish and a high flight risk at this time.  She loves children and other dogs but adults are very scary to her and she keeps her distance from them.  She is in the care of a very experienced foster family who are working with her daily and keeping her very safe from being able to flee.  It will take some time for her to learn to trust adults but her fosters are up to the challenge.  Harley will require an experienced person who will take the time and have the patience to continue to work with her.  She will also do best in a home with another confident dog that she can learn from.  Even though she adores children it is best that she not be in a home where children are coming and going as she can escape an open door.  Harley is not a dog that can be outside off leash at this time, this may come with time.

 

Updates:
  • Update:Harley has been with us about a month and she progressing forward in leaps and bounds . She has done great meeting dogs big and small. Harley is an extremely active high energy girl that will do well with an active family and another active dog. She loves to chase a tennis ball and play rope tug with her fur foster brother. She is learning the do’s and don’ts of a home as she is quick to snatch shoes and put her paws on the counter as this girl has lots of puppy left in her!!  This girl loves to play all day long and if not allowed to burn that energy and use her mind she could easily get herself into trouble as she is very intelligent! She is crated trained and we are working on house breaking. She was well behaved and sat patiently while she got her nails clipped. She rides excellent in the car!

    Harley is a very slow intro girl and requires weeks of patience from her human before she is ready to trust you. It took her a month to trust us enough to seek affection. Harely is still a flight risk and we have to make sure we are careful as to where she is when doors are opened as she could easily slip out. Harley will have to remain leashed in a fenced yard for several weeks until she is bonded with her new family. Harley will require patience, stability, training, and lots of love. Are you the perfect family for Harley?

Bailey
DESCRIPTION:

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

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

Updates:
  • Update:  Our volunteers working at the kennel report that Star walks well on the leash with few corrections, enjoys being brushed, knows sit and down reliably especially with proper treats and isn’t overly interested in the other dogs.  She met a family of four with two young children and did well around them.  She is a beautiful girl and will make someone a fine companion.

Cyrus
CyrusCyrusCyrusCyrus & Foster Bro, SHermanCyrus
DESCRIPTION:

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

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

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

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

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

  • He is an awesome dog. He is happy to be with his people and a playful goofy puppy. He loves marrow bones with peanut butter and playing with toys in general. He also loves to give HUGS!  He does better in a vari-kennel as opposed to a wire crate. He has not had any accidents in the house.  We are working through his crate anxiety. We play music for him, have used lavender in the room to soothe him and calming treats bought at Pet Value and we have not had issues with him breaking out of our crate. He absolutely loves car rides and meeting new people! He does have some bad habits such as counter surfing but he easily corrects. He does still need strong guidance as he does tend to want to push him limits as he is a young male full of life!!

Oliver
OliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliver
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.

Updates:
  • 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. 

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • Oliver has settled in nicely with his foster family and established a quick bond, especially with his foster mom.  Oliver’s calm and charming personality make him a great company.  No potty training needed; he lets you know when, and handles his foster parent’s 8-9 hour workday without a hitch.  Oliver is fully house-trained and house-friendly – he remains calm in the house, does not bother any home items, and is trained to not get on any furniture. He is not a chewer and is not even interested in chew toys.  He is sharing the house with a 12 year old Irish Wolfhound mix who has admittedly been a grumpy, jealous, and competitive pest to Oliver, but Oliver has been calm and cool throughout. They get better every day, and the humans enjoy seeing them snoozing side-by-side by the fireplace. 

    Oliver is a terrific walker. Well behaved, willing to stay at heel/left. He pays zero attention to the other neighborhood dogs with underground fences, even when they charge towards him. When walking through a familiar neighborhood, he has excellent leash manners. When hiking in a park or through the woods, the new sites and smells are far too exciting and some leash corrections are needed as he much prefers to roam and explore.  He is an enthusiastic runner but is perfectly happy with just a walk too. Oliver is also great in a vehicle and long trips are not an issue, but he needs some work to get in, which should improve with practice, time, patience and commitment.

    This sweet pup is a keen observer and a quick learner.  He knows “sit”, “down”, “wait” (letting his human go through doors first), and his foster parents are working with him to be more consistent with “come.”  He responds very well to calm approaches and positive praise; less so to assertive commands, as he is stubborn. He is eager to make his foster mom happy and pays attention to what will earn him praise. It should be noted that Oliver is an impressively skilled escape artist, which can be managed with additional security measures (not relying on a simple door latch or crate closure; locks over any basic latches). While he does not get into anything in the house, he is motivated to get out of enclosures. The foster family persists with crate training as all of MAGSR’s fosters do, but Oliver much prefers the extra space in the mud room. He also seems perfectly fine with the run of the whole house. He prefers learning and working over playing. The foster family has found much humor in Oliver’s attempts to outsmart them. The chess match with Oliver is a great deal of fun. If Oliver sounds like a good fit for your future, please ask to meet him!

AdeleAdeleAdele
DESCRIPTION:

Adele came to us from a shelter where she found herself with her 2 pups, Sommer and Faye.  Adele is somewhat unsure of the changes in her life, but she is in the care of a loving a foster who will assure her that she is safe and life will be good from now on.  She will need time to adjust to a new family, along with confidence building.  Training will of course help with this and create a bond with her family.  Please ask to meet this petite beauty.

Updates:
  • Adele is a happy sweet girl, quiet in her crate and a pleasure to have outside - loves her walks around the farm, exploring all that is so new to her.  She is brave and curious, willing to greet the horses and walk into the barn, up and down stairs, and through the fields. She is also very alert and a careful watcher without being barky or noisy.   She was very friendly at the vet’s office and happy to see the other dogs coming and going.  Adele deserves a loving home and will be a wonderful addition to a family, where she can settle in and bond with every family member.  Adele will be the dog of a lifetime for some lucky family.

Amos is going home
AmosAmosAmosAmosAmosAmosAmos
DESCRIPTION:

Amos was found as a stray with an embedded collar which had to be surgically removed.  He is healing nicely.  Amos is a big 10 month old puppy with lots of puppy energy and antics.  He is a happy, playful boy always looking for something to do.   It's obvious that no one has spent time teaching him good puppy manners.  He likes to greet people by jumping up on them, playing chase and keep away and has no leash skills.  Training and structure will help Amos learn what is expected of him.   If you love to jog, go for long walks and spend time helping Amos burn his energy he would be a great fit.
