DESCRIPTION:

Ballot came to us an owner surrender as his former person took ill and could no longer care for him.  He is a large, very handsome, long haired male.  His coat is not in the best condition at this time as he did not receive the grooming a long coated dog requires.  He will be a having a spa day to remove dirt and matted fur.  He is a friendly boy, he does need to learn some good manners which training will help with him,

Update:

Howdy! Ballot checking in. I'm very happy here and my humans love me a lot. We have a lot of fun. I'm learning a lot too....mostly what not to do. I've started making a list of things I'm not supposed to do:

  • Steal towels, especially when they are wrapped around a human.
  • Get in the shower with my humans.
  • Lift the lid on the toilet to get a drink.
  • Bite the hand of the person throwing my ball.
  • Counter-surf
  • Sit on the tables
  • Sit on the kids laying on the floor
  • Recycling bin inspections.
  • Run off with socks and underwear laid out for the kids
  • Nibble while giving kisses.
  • Run off with and hide shoes.
  • Look the humans in the eye while we're both standing
  • Lay on the kids while cleaning their faces (this is very hard not to do because they are really squeaky when you do this)
  • Pick out my own books from the bookshelves.
  • Put both front feet in the water bowl when drinking.
  • Open the door myself.
  • Grab and eat the fish food containers

Did I mention that I'm pretty? I'm also pretty good at getting in my crate when told, and waiting for the humans to go up and down the stairs first. I'm learning to sit and wait for the humans to go through the door first. I love to play ball and am very good at catching them in the air. They tell me I'm pretty smart and learning quickly, I just have a lot to learn right now. I'm very friendly with all the humans that come in the house and the ones we meet outside too. I don't let my humans get too far away because they like me to keep an eye on them. I love love love the pool and get in it everytime I go outside.

I get fed three times a day and am trying to add a few pounds to help me fill out a bit. My humans comb and condition my hair everyday, it makes me smell awesome and my hair is sooo soft now. I still have a few clumps behind my ears and at the back of my head but we're working on them.

The pool is calling my name so I better get going. Bark at ya laterz,
Ballot

DESCRIPTION:

Meet MAGSR's newest bonded pair - Chewy (m) & Tanga (f)! These two were surrendered to MAGSR after their human mom passed away - they are understandably confused and nervous. They are reported to be good with dogs, kids and cats (lived with 2 chihuahuas and cats). MAGSR will make every effort to keep them together.  They are both very large dogs and need to lose some weight, nothing exercise and reduction in food intake won't help.  Do you have room in your home and heart for two??

Current Size: 60 lbs

Copper
CopperCopperCopperCopperCopperCopperCopper
DESCRIPTION:

Copper was surrendered to a shelter as the family had 8 dogs which was against county pet laws.  He is wonderful with other dogs. He is somewhat timid and looks to his person for guidance and direction.  He feels much more comfortable when his person is a confident handler.  He enjoys curling up in your lap and being loved on.  

Update:

Copper is a very gentle and loving young dog, and so handsome with his beautiful white coat.  He is on the sensitive and introverted side of things and so is very comfortable and doing well in his quiet foster home, with the older and easygoing resident dogs.  Copper needs extra time to meet new people, and needs a light touch to learn and trust in new situations, but once he accepts you he is very sweet and very affectionate, and wants nothing more than just to be with you.  With careful exposure he is getting more comfortable each day with crowds, loud noises, unexpected motion, etc., but he has limits and will do best in a more quiet, slow moving, and nurturing environment.  Copper is housebroken, crates well, loves other dogs, and loves to run with his foster dad for exercise. Copper is a gentle spirit that will make a wonderful addition to the right family that can provide the gentle but firm love and leadership he needs to thrive. Could that be you?

Kona
KonaKona
DESCRIPTION:
Kona is extremely affectionate and loving. He's a very big boy, but believes he is a lapdog and would love to show anyone his belly that will let him. He's very strong and active and loves people. He gets a little too excited when people come to his house and barks but quickly calms after a couple of minutes.

Kona has been to obedience training and was deemed a friendly, smart, stubborn dog. He has been gentle with a baby and toddler and never showed any aggression towards people. Kona thrived in a home with another Shepherd, cat, baby, and toddler. He would occasionally play a little rough with the cat but the cat ultimately always put Kona in his place. Kona does have a strong prey drive with small animals like squirrels and sometimes small dogs and cats.

Kona needs to be properly cared for around small animals because he doesn't always know his strength.  He's mostly very easy going and loves to be loved and give love to his family. He loves walks and belly rubs and just laying around the house with his other fur friends and family.

DESCRIPTION:

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

Update:

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

DESCRIPTION:

Mochi came to us as a stray from a shelter.  It is hard to believe that no one was looking for him, he is absolutely a wonderful boy.  He is friendly with everyone he meets, just an overall friendly boy.  He enjoys playing with other dogs, lots of playtime helps him burn off the energy of a young dog.  Mochi is certainly ready to move on and to meet his new family.

 

Update:

Mochi has gotten comfortable in his foster home. Mochi is very social with his foster family and resident dog. He prefers to be in the room that his humans are in - he is a loving boy that will snuggle right up with his humans. Mochi loves to be scratched under his chin and behind his ears. He loves the resident children and everyone that comes to the house to visit. Mochi is housebroken and is learning his basic commands. He walks nicely on a leash, enjoys his time outside and even enjoys being brushed. Mochi loves to play with a ball although he's still working on the fetch component of ball playing. Mochi is great in the crate during the day but also has been no trouble whatsoever if given a room to hang out in while he waits for his humans. Are you ready for a fun loving boy that will adore you forever? If so, ask for Mochi!

Murphy
MurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphy
DESCRIPTION:

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

Update:

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

DESCRIPTION:

Oso a very handsome, big boy weighing in at 105 lbs.  Although he is large, he is a gentle giant.  Oso's favorite activity is to play with balls, the more balls the better, yes even soccer and basketball size balls.  It is imperative that all dogs go through obedience training and Oso is not exception.  With a dog of this size you want to have good manners, this will make walking him on a leash much more enjoyable. 

Unfortunately Oso was returned to us.  Family members moved into his home, after he had lived there over a year, with small dogs that Oso did not get along with, so he got the boot.  He was fine with the neighbors female GSD.  He came back to us over weight so he has been put on diet, that along with exercise he should be down a good weight in no time.

DESCRIPTION:

Hi  friends, my name is Sarge and I am interviewing prosepctive forever families. Let me explain my situation and get you up to speed. I managed to get myself in quite a pickle as I landed myself in local  shelter as a stray. I am not really sure what a stray is but I will figure that out later.  The accommodations were not bad. They were really nice to me and I did get a warm bed and two squares a day! It was kind of rough though because I was use to em... certain luxeries. I was at this place for about a month when they told me my foster family was coming to pick me up and bring me home! They are amazing and I am really living it up here wth them but foster mean temporary until my perfect home presents itself. They told me I can stay as long as I need to which makes me so happy. I even heard them say they were taking me to acupuncture this weekend so I am hoping that is some sort of massage and they provide treats! I will update later on how that goes.. So dont worry, I am in a good place as I interview

So back to my requirements.. you know a senior gentleman has certain needs and things we become accustomed to. I like a soft orthopedic bed with a blanky, I demand regular head and belly scratches, and daily treats. And let's be clear, I DONT enjoy steps and can only get up or down one or two steps because I sustained a bad pelvic injury in my younger days that never healed correctly so I only get around on three legs. My back leg is pretty useless although it does help to steady me when begging at the table... I have learned to compensate for my injury and do still enjoy playing and romping in the yard. My new family will need to provide some pain meds and supplements to help keep me as pain free as possible. Here is a positive.. I am totally house broken but do require to be let out every few hours as in my old age I just can't hold it as long as when I was a young buck.. My favorite past time aside from eating is sleeping because don't forget I am a senior boy and require several naps.. I am the most laid back guy that you will ever meet! I like my doggie friends big and small! I am just an all around great companion and just want a person to call my own. I will follow you around and lay at your feet! If you feel you could be my forever family and provide for my senior needs please apply above! Love Sarge

Zeus
ZeusZeusZeusZeusZeusZeusZeusZeusZeusZeusZeus
DESCRIPTION:

Zeus was adopted from us as an 8 week old puppy.  He was returned as the adopter claims he is moving and could not find housing that would allow a large breed dog.  Zeus is a wonderful, friendly boy.  He needs some brushing up on his obedience training.  He is over weight and could use to lose pounds, walks, and playtime along with cutting back on his food intake will help him reach optimal weight.  He was often left with a pet sitter who had children and cats, he did fine with all.  In his previous home he lived with other dogs without problems.  Zeus will make a great family addition, please ask to meet him.

Update:

Zeus is settling in to his foster home. He is very playful and just a big clumsy puppy. Zeus loves to take nice long walks with his foster dad, which is helping him lose a couple of pounds already.  Zeus started off mouthy but is also learning manners in his foster home. Zeus is very affectionate with his foster family and is great with the young child in the home as well. If Zeus sounds like a good fit for you, please ask to meet him.
