Apollo and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Apollo's owner loved him greatly but struggled to keep him safe and in the household. As a result, Apollo spent too much time wandering about the neighborhood and checking in with the neighbors. Unfortunately, this resulted in too many trips to animal control. Due to his frequent visits, Animal Control decided that Apollo would be safer if he moved forward with a new family.
Apollo is a big, sweet guy. Although it is clear that he has not had a lot of structure prior to his arrival, he is a quick learner and seems to prefer a calm yet confident handler. Apollo has lived with a couple of cats and has done well with them. He seems unaffected by their presence and is calm with them around. Having met a variety of dogs in his travels, Apollo has made it clear that he can live peacefully with another dog. However, he is not a big fan of high-energy dogs who get in his face. We can't blame him for setting his boundaries. Apollo is looking for a forever home that will provide him with the guidance and routine that will help him thrive. He will benefit greatly from training with his new family. This will not only help him bond to his new family but it will also help him develop the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. If your household is looking for a big, laid back guy, ask to meet Apollo today!
Briscoe and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
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.
Clarence and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Handsome Clarence was picked up as a stray in the south. This sweet guy immediately won over the hearts and minds of shelter staff. Recognizing that Clarence deserved the chance at a loving forever home that would cherish him for a lifetime, shelter staff began looking for a rescue that could support Clarence as he moved forward. When MAGSR heard about Clarence, we knew we could find him the perfect forever home.
Clarence is a young and playful guy. As is true of all young dogs, Clarence 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. Good with kids, cats, and other dogs, Clarence is 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 Clarence arrived in our care heartworm positive, he has completed his treatment and is officially heartworm free! He is ready to move forward with his new family. Clarence will thrive with structure, leadership, and routine. Training is also important. It will not only help Clarence bond to his new family, but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. If Clarence sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet him today.
Fred and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
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.
Junior and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
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.
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.
Keanu and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
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!
Otis and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
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?
Ralph and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Ralph is a big, handsome, social guy. He likes dogs of varied sizes and has clearly been well socialized. As Ralph is still very young, it is critical that his forever family continue to socialize him appropriately. This will help him develop into a stable dog. As a playful guy, Ralph is looking for an active household that will exercise both his mind and his body on a daily basis. As we do not know anything about Ralph's past, in many ways he is a clean slate. He will benefit from structure, routine, and leadership. Ralph's family will need to make sure that he gets into training early. This will help Ralph bond to his forever family; it will also help him develop the skills and confidence he will need to become a good canine citizen.
Unfortunately, we have learned that Ralph is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if he had been provided with monthly heartworm prevention. MAGSR is beginning Ralph's heartworm treatment. Although treatment is expensive, sweet Ralph is beyond worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Ralph's treatment. Your generosity will help us save him and other dogs with medical needs. Although Ralph will need to take it slow over the next few months, he will be back to full strength once his treatment is finished.
If Ralph sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet this boy today.
Teddy Bear and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
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?
Theo and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Theo was a stray who found his way to a shelter where it was very clear that he needed immediate medical attention. A portion of Theo's tail had been degloved and he required significant medical support. Recognizing that Theo's condition would require surgical intervention, the shelter staff worked with local groups to get Theo the help he needed. In order to help Theo survive, a portion of his tail was amputated. With his medical needs addressed, Theo is ready to move forward and begin his journey with a new family. Theo is a big, ball-driven boy. He is good with other dogs but prefers proper introductions. We appreciate that he thinks the use of manners is best when saying hi to new dogs and people. As is true of all shepherds, Theo will meet with success in a household where he has structure and leadership. Training will also go a long way with this handsome guy. Although we are still getting to know Theo, we will provide updates soon. If Theo sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet him today.
Toby and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Cutie little Toby did not have an easy start in life. He was mistreated by his owner and then abandoned in the south. Fortunately, another rescue heard about Toby's plight and started putting plans in place to help him. Although they were able to start moving him forward, unfortunately, Toby was not able to move into the safety of a rescue before he was attacked by another dog. Medical support was secured quickly and Toby was moved into MAGSR's care.
For such a young guy, Toby has endured a lot of trauma. He is still learning that there are kind people in the world who will treat him the way he should have been treated since the beginning. Recognizing that Toby needed and deserved additional support in order to develop the confidence and stability that he needs to move forward, Toby is working with one of our trainers in a board and train program.
Toby has been with the trainer for a few weeks and he is doing amazing. They quickly learned he has an incredible ability for tracking or nose work. He would be a phenomenal working dog or competition sport nose work dog. He is currently learning to be off leash and they are continuing to explore his tracking abilities. Toby would do best with an active family that would enjoy putting his talents to work whether for sport or competition. He will thrive with continued training and structure as he is a medium to high energy boy! If he sounds like the pup for you please put your application in!
Zulu and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
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.
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.
