Angel and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Angel and her siblings, Cupid, Valentine, and Sweetie, were living outside in a location where their likelihood of survival was significantly diminished each day they remained on the property. With limited food, clean water, shelter, and no vetting, these babies had few options. In addition, hazardous conditions on the property made their prognosis grave. Several of their siblings drowned before rescuers were able to step in and help. With the assistance of other rescues, volunteers, and vets, MAGSR was able to bring these little survivors into the MAGSR family. 

Angel is clearly a cutie and her story has quickly won over the hearts and minds of the many people who have helped her along the way. However, Angel is a working line dog who will require a special household that will commit to training and socialization. As a high energy breed who needs to have structure, guidance, and constant leadership, Angel's family will need to keep both her mind and body exercised on a daily basis. Although Angel is an incredible dog, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics and can be mischievous - they will whine, have accidents, get into things, and chew on inappropriate things. With time, patience, guidance and training, Angel will develop into the good canine citizen she is destined to become. If Angel sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today.

Birch & Kota and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Kota and her best buddy, Birch, were found wandering around in the south. Although the two dogs were wearing identification, when animal control contacted their family, they were told that the dogs were no longer wanted. As this friendly pair deserves to be loved and cared for in their golden years, our friends at animal control called and asked if we could welcome this pair into the MAGSR family. 

Kota and Birch are a bonded pair and rely on one another for safety and comfort. Although they were tossed aside by their former family, they remain sweet and loving dogs. Currently residing with a fantastic foster family, Kota and Birch are moving forward with the comfort of soft beds, good food, and the attention they deserve. Although we are still getting to know this lovely pair, it does appear that they have previously lived in a household and do know some of the general household expectations. As we learn more about Kota and Birch, we will provide updates. If you can provide this special pair with the loving forever home they so clearly deserve, please ask to meet them today. 

Update:

Kota and Birch are very calm loving dogs. They walk nicely on a leash and are house broken. Birch's favorite thing is to relax with his people and Kota loves ear scratches. Birch provides a sense of safety and Kota provides a sense of calmness for one another. They both get along with the resident dogs in their fosters house and are happy to hang out with them. Kota and Birch arrived at MAGSR from the south the day before Thanksgiving. It was a very special holiday for them because there was food in their belly and a warm soft bed to sleep on. Upon rescue they appeared older than they truly were. A MAGSR vet estimated Birch between 3-5 and Kota between 5-7 years old. They are currently working on gaining weight and strengthening the muscles that were not used as much as needed. Birch has tested heartworm positive as we are seeing more and more due to lack of heartworm preventatives, however MAGSR has already started him on his treatment program and will cover the entire cost. Please donate if you can. If you have room in your home and want a wonderful bonded pair, their foster would love to tell you all about them.


Update:

Hi there…It’s me Kota. My foster family has learned so much about me in these last few weeks. I had my first Christmas yesterday in a loving home. Stockings were the best. I got my favorite crackling and squeaking toy!! Of course, good girls like me also get treats. I can’t wait for Christmas in my furever home. Maybe New Year’s, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Valentine’s Day (I’ll give you lots of kisses) but I think you get the point. I have figured out my place in the pack with the resident dogs and we get along wonderfully. My foster parents love having us. My foster dad said we are so easy to love. Just a few…or many…ear scratches and I’ll sleep at your feet like I am with my foster mom right now. If I sound like your kind of dog ask to see me. I’m waiting for you.


Update:

Hi there…it’s me Birch. My foster family has learned just as much about me as they have for my best friend Kota. My first Christmas in a home was also yesterday. My stocking was pretty cool too but I am much more laid back about it. My favorite was the beef bone and the freeze-dried chicken. Of course, the new soft beds…now we have one in almost every room… they were a hit with me. I like to curl up on the bed and monitor the room. I haven't quite figured out affection like Kota has. I am happy to get affection, but I don’t always ask for it. So, my foster family comes to me and I do the loving lean in. I am getting the hang of excitement. I do this cute jump. There is nothing like a soft bed and a warm fire. Except maybe a furever home. Are you that for us? We will love you and be devoted companions forever. Ask about us and my foster mom can brag about us for hours!!

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Crimson was a stray who fortunately got picked up by a good samaritan and brought to a shelter. Once there, she waited patiently for a family of her very own. Unfortunately, no one came for Crimson. When contacted by another rescue to bring Crimson in, MAGSR stepped up. 

Crimson is a beautiful and intelligent girl. She gains confidence from a calm and stable handler. Crimson, like all dogs, will benefit greatly from training as it will help her develop into a good canine citizen. At the same time training will also help Crimson bond to her new family. As Crimson is new to the rescue, we are still getting to know her. Please stay tuned for more updates.

Erica and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Erica was picked up in the south and brought to a local shelter. Shelter staff immediately fell in love with this delightful girl and started pleading for a rescue placement. Fortunately, we were able to step forward and welcome this lovely girl into the MAGSR family.

Erica is the definition of gentle giant. She is easy to walk on leash and friendly with everyone she meets. Erica rides well in the car but is still learning the best way to get up into larger vehicles. We are still getting to know this big, beautiful girl and will post updates soon. If Erica sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today. 

Update:

Erica has been with us in her foster home for a few days now, and is still settling in. We've learned a few things about her in this short time. She is definitely a "low-key" kinda gal, well-suited for a quiet, less active home. We believe she is part (or whole) Anatolian shepherd, and shows many of the characteristics of this breed. She bonds quickly to her care-giver (that's me!) but does not exhibit separation-anxiety at all; she has been left alone for several hours by herself without problems. She is happy to greet me at the door when I return, but then just retreats to her "spot"  to watch me.

Erica has obviously lived in a home, as she is completely housebroken and waits at the door to tell you she needs outside. She was reported to being accepting of a crate, but that has not been my experience with her - she registered her displeasure at being crated, and has been just fine, uncrated, in my home. She is not destructive at all and stays off the furniture (a rule in my household). Erica is a big girl, but at 90+ lbs she is not overweight for her breeding - she has a visible "waist" when viewed from above. She eats whatever is in her dog bowl, has adjusted to feed changes just fine, and takes treats very gently. Erica walks well on leash and follows my lead. She knows very few commands but is easy to handle.

Erica is looking for her perfect home, one without small animals, and with folks who will love her and care for her for the rest of her life. If your household seeks a "gentle giant" companion dog, please ask to meet Erica.

Lizzo and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Lizzo is a survivor. After using her for puppies, Lizzo's owner decided that owning her wasn't advantageous anymore. As a result, he gave her away to  someone in the community who left her outside to roam. Without proper care, housing, or food, Lizzo began wandering about the community. Although it was unsafe, Lizzo started regularly running through town to return to her previous residence where a furry friend still resided. Fortunately, a good Samaritan became aware of Lizzo's suffering and was able to arrange for Lizzo to be released to a local rescue in the south. Recognizing that Lizzo would have her best chance at finding the forever home in another region, she was transferred to MAGSR. Although we are still getting to know Lizzo, it is clear that even with all the suffering she has endured that she is an incredible dog. As is true of any dog, Lizzo will thrive in a stable household that will provide her with love, guidance and leadership. As we have the opportunity to learn more about Lizzo, we will post updates. If Lizzo sounds like a fit for your household, ask to meet this lovely girl today.

Macy and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Macy was picked up as a stray with her little family in a busy city. Recognizing that sweet Macy deserved to live a life of comfort and love, the shelter staff made a rescue plea for Macy. MAGSR stepped in to help Macy. 

Macy is a sweetheart that quickly wins over the hearts and minds of everyone she meets. A constant source of tail wags and joy, Macy couldn't have a kinder personality. Although we know that Macy is an incredible girl, we have learned that she is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if she has been properly cared for and provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. Macy has begun her heartworm treatment and is doing well. The cost of Macy's entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Macy is clearly well worth the cost. Please donate toward Macy's treatment, your generosity will help us save her and other dogs with medical needs. Although Macy will need to take it slow over the next few months, she will be back to full strength once her treatment is finished. If your household can provide the love and comfort that Macy deserves, ask to meet her today.

Update:

Macy has been a great houseguest.   Macy is good with the resident dog, she’s quiet in the crate with very little protesting.  She enjoys her walks & takes treats nicely.  Macy has learned stairs within a day (at first didn’t want to go up or down) & also has joined her foster when he teaches his Zoom/FaceTime lessons.  She is very sweet & wants to please!

Mazie and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Mazie and Sadie were well-loved members of their family. Unfortunately, due to circumstances outside of their control, the girls' family needed to find them a new home. MAGSR was honored to step-up and provide Mazie and Sadie with a safe haven while we looked for the perfect forever for these girls. 

Mazie is a special girl. Her family welcomed her home after a breeder considered putting her down after being born with a congenital defect. Although Mazie required a little extra time and support, she was welcomed home to a family that taught her how to walk, play, and interact just like any other dog. Mazie is a little confused by all of the changes in her life. As a result, she needs a little extra time to warm up to new people. However, when provided with leadership and guidance, Mazie warms up to new people and leans in for affection. 

If Mazie sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet her today.

Miss Jackie and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

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. She seeks out attention from everyone around and is a bit of a social butterfly. Fortunately, Miss Jackie has found a loving foster home that is helping her move forward. Although Miss Jackie is an incredible lady, we have learned that she is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided had she been properly cared for and provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. Miss Jackie has already begun her heartworm treatment and is doing well. The cost of Jackie's entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Miss Jackie is more than worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Miss Jackie's care.

Odetta and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

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.

Affectionate and sweet, Raina has done well when meeting new people but can become a little too exuberant and get jumpy. Both crate trained and housebroken, Raina understands many of the household rules; however, as is true of any new dog, she will need time to adjust to the routines of a new household.

DESCRIPTION:

As Trena has endured a difficult life, it can take her a little time to warm up to new people and circumstances. Her reactions and responses make it clear that she has been abused. When welcomed into her foster family, Trena would lay in the corner scared and shaking. Although fear seemed to consume this lovely lady, with love, patience, and a little help from her furry foster brother - Camden, Trena began making strides. Trena enjoys her daily walks and seems happiest when playing outside. As she has adjusted to family life, Trena has begun learning some basic commands, developing her playful voice, and housebreaking. Trena will be most successful in a household that will take the time to further build her confidence. She would benefit from a calm and quiet household that would provide the structure and patience Trena needs to meet with further success. If your family can provide Trena with the love and support she will need to continue to move forward, please ask to meet her today. 

Update:

Trena has had such a hard life but even with everything she has been through she is beginning to trust humans. Everyday Trena makes strides in trusting. She is very fearful and her fosters have found she likes to eat in her crate. It is exciting that Trena is starting to ask for belly rubs and had her 1st playdate and did great. As you will see from Trena's pictures she loves her foster brother Cam. Trena would do best with another dog in her forever home, as she looks to them for confidence.

Winter and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Winter's family fell on hard times and could no longer provide her with the basic food and shelter she needed. As a result, they made the decision to turn her into a shelter with the hope that she would find a new home. Although done with the best intentions, Winter was overlooked and in an overcrowded shelter this meant she was living on borrowed time. When shelter staff realized she needed out, they contacted MAGSR. We immediately welcomed Winter into rescue. 

Winter is a sweetheart; however, she can be timid around new people. Once she warms up, Winter is your typical, young GSD. Good with other dogs, Winter participated in playgroup regularly at the shelter. Although Winter is honey who is ready to find her forever home, we have learned that she is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if she had been  provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. Winter has already begun her heartworm treatment and is doing well. The cost of Winter's entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Winter is clearly more than worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Winter's treatment.

If your household is ready to provide Winter with the leadership and love she craves, ask to meet her today.
