DESCRIPTION:

Beethoven is one of 22 dogs from the Carolina's that needed help due to Hurricane Florence.

Beethoven is a furry friendly guy who is looking for his forever home and family.  With all of the stress and changes he has been gone through and a long transport to our care, he has handled it well.  As he is new to us we will continue to get to know him better and post updates.

Update:

Unfortunately, Beethoven tested heartworm positive when seen by MAGSR's vet. This could have been avoided had he been kept on monthly heartworm preventatives. Beethoven is in the beginning stages of his heartworm treatment, which of course MAGSR will pay for his entire treatment. Treatment is expensive, but Beethoven is certainly worth the cost. Donations towards his treatment would be greatly appreciated, this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs. He will have to take it slow for the next few months while he undergoes treatment, so lots of rest will be in order.

DESCRIPTION:

Bradford was a frequent flyer at his local shelter as his previous family did nothing to ensure his safety.  He was constantly leaving the property and being picked up running the streets. Thankfully this very big handsome boy is now safe in our care and is now looking for a family that will ensure his safety by not allowing him to be outside unsupervised or wandering the streets. Bradford has a calm disposition and is so gentle for such a large boy. However, when he gets more comfortable, he is powerful in his movements, largely because of his size and needs a strong handler. Bradford is very timid and unsure at this time and therefore is considered a flight risk. Structure and building his confidence is what this sweet boy needs.  Training will do him wonders and help create a bond with his new family.

DESCRIPTION:

Chevy found himself in a shelter very underweight.  He has been diagnosed with EPI, Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency.  This is caused when the pancreas does not produce enough enzymes to properly digest food.  This is very easily treated by adding enzymes to each meal which helps the body digest food. More information can be found at epi4dogs.com along with before and after pictures of dogs that have EPI. Now that Chevy has been receiving the enzymes he needs he has gained weight.  Please do not let EPI deter you from considering Chevy, he deserves a family to love and care for him and in return he will give you his devotion. Chevy needs to be properly introduced to new dogs, he does not do well with face to face meeting the first time round.  Once he has been properly introduced he does well.  He is now in a foster home, please watch for updates.

Update:

Chevy is a sweet young dog looking for a forever home to provide consistency, structure and training with a hander who has prior GSD experience. Chevy is housebroken and crate trained. He hasn’t spent much time in a home - he’s learning about stairs and his reflection in glass doors. He’s also learning what not to do, like counter surf, jump on people and be respectful to the resident dogs. He isn’t aggressive rather he wants to play and can be a little too forward. He needs to learn both people and dog manners. He does not appear to have had any prior training and is new to a prong collar. He responds very well to a light touch and seems to be a quickly learner once he understands what you want. He’s interested in squirrels and if a dog is barking in the hood, he responds in kind. For a young untrained dog, he is fairly calm and easy to handle. He doesn’t pull much on the leash during a walk. He likes to lean into his person, loves attention and gives kisses. He’s ok with being brushed and is getting accustomed to his ears, feet and mouth being handled. His EPI is well managed, with enzymes on his food, mixed and soaked in warm water for 20 minutes and dinner is served - Easy! If you are looking for a dog that is easy to train and loves people and you can provide love, toys, and training - look no further - Chevy is the one for you!


Update:

Chevy is adjusting to life inside a home. He is still learning dog to dog manners as he likes to run up to a dog and bark. Not the best social skill for a dog. He is getting more comfortable around people, but still needs slow introductions to people - we’re taking it slow. He wants to approach on his own terms. Once he knows you're ok, he's fine. Chevy is letting his human know that he’s not comfortable. He doesn’t like collar or people messing with his neck or hands over his head - his foster mom is working on that with him. With his EPI, he gets a few freeze dried liver treats to help with training. A calm, slow and gentle hand wins the day with Chevy - just take it slow and easy. Chevy crates beautifully and loves to talk to the resident female GSD when he wants to play. Chevy is getting settled in and is adjusting well - he’s a fast learner. Overall, Chevy is a sweetheart with a few quirks. If you have the interest in working with Chevy to provide the structure and training he needs and patience to earn his trust, please ask to meet him.


Update:

Hi! Chevy here, I thought I would give my own update. When I arrived in MAGSR's care 5 weeks ago, I wasn’t feeling so good and needed to rest. Now that I’m feeling better, I have a lot more energy and I love to run and play!  I think that’s why they call me Chevy Chase sometimes. I love to chase and wrestle with the resident young dog. There are things here I’ve never seen before like stairs, but now I run up and down them like I’ve been doing it my entire life. They also have balls here. I didn’t get it at first, but now, I LOVE to chase balls.  They take me to this big field and throw it as far as they can. I run like a bullet to get the ball and come right back for more. I stay close to my people. Like most GSDs, I am protective when there’s a knock at the door or something out of place is happening. I’m kinda shy around new people, but I love my foster family so when I get used to you, I am very affectionate. I’m really not crazy about going to the vet. My foster mom uses this word “no” - I understand that means I have to stop doing whatever it is I’m doing. If you don’t keep an eye on me, I might chew up your favorite baseball cap (Sorry). I don’t mind the crate at all and I’m really quiet in it, unless I have to go potty, then I softly whine. I always go outside. I haven’t had one single accident inside the house. I’ve heard them say I’ve come a long way in a short period of time - whatever that means. All I know is, I’m a young pup looking for a place to call home. I need someone who understands my breed because I can be willful unless it’s something I want to do. Could that be you? I hope so, I’m here waiting.  Let’s play ball!

CrombieCrombieCrombieCrombieCrombieCrombieCrombieCrombieCrombieCrombieCrombieCrombieCrombieCrombieCrombieCrombieCrombieCrombieCrombieCrombieCrombieCrombie
DESCRIPTION:

Crombie is one of 22 dogs from the Carolina's that needed help due to Hurricane Florence. 

This precious boy is so loving and sweet. He yearns for the attention of humans, needing a family of his very own that will commit to him for his lifetime. Just look at that face, those eye's say it all.  He is settling into his foster home so please watch for updates as his foster family gets to know him better.

Update:

Hi there...It's me, Crombie, checking in. I want to tell you a little about myself. My foster mom calls me a big barrel of adorableness. I love my human foster sibling. We could snuggle for hours with me giving her lots of kisses. My walks are awesome. I walk nicely on the leash and am learning to sit to get my leash on. The crate is a good place to be and sometimes I go in there even when the door is open. I love my foster family but would love my furever family more. If you want a snuggle or two, ask to meet me!!


Update:

Unfortunately, Crombie tested heartworm positive when seen by MAGSR's vet. This could have been avoided had he been kept on monthly heartworm preventatives. Crombie is in the beginning stages of his heartworm treatment, which of course MAGSR will pay for his entire treatment. Treatment is expensive, but Crombie is certainly worth the cost. Donations towards his treatment would be greatly appreciated, this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs. He will have to take it slow for the next few months while he undergoes treatment, so lots of rest will be in order.


Update:

Hi there! Crombie here....I have made myself right at home in my foster home and my personality hasn't changed a bit. I am very calm and relaxed. I am on activity restriction but that's no big deal for me cause I don't mind my crate at all. Slow walks give me time to sniff some extra and no running, jumping or playing isn't so bad for the next couple of months. I spend my time out of the crate either on my foster mom's lap or laying next to my human foster sibling. I eat and drink in my crate so I know it's a good place to be. Getting out of my crate can be challenging because I'm excited to get out, so I don't want to sit, but my foster mom makes sure I do before we can go out. Hopefully this heart worm thing doesn't scare you away ... MAGSR takes care of all of it and all you need to do is give my my medicine, keep me calm during the treatment (which isn't tough) and love me (that's the easy part) Talk to you soon....Crombie


Update:

It's me again! I have had my first ventures with the resident dogs this week. There is a dominant female shepherd and a second in command. The dominant shepherd loves me but can't figure out why I don't know what playing is. So we just chew bones together on the floor. Maybe I will figure out play in time but hopefully not too soon because I'm on exercise restriction and then on crate restriction during my heartworm treatment. As for the other smaller resident dog, she makes sure I know she is second in command. We don't growl or fight, but she definitely isn't thrilled to have me around, so I just avoid her. All in all, the few weeks we spent just smelling each other on our humans has worked out well. At least I have found a new friend. Keep a look out for me because I'm attending events until I get my first heartworm treatment injection. Catch you later.....Crombie


Update:

Hello Again....Thought I would share some things coming into the holiday season as we all think of what we should be thankful for.....Some of these things dogs never have.

I'm thankful for a warm bed to sleep in.
I'm thankful for always having food.
I'm thankful for bone and toys to chew on (because I'm activity restriction.)
I'm thankful for love from my foster family.
I'm thankful for the resident dogs that show me acceptance and love.
I'm thankful for the love and attention the resident children shower on me.
Most of all I'm thankful for the heart worm treatment MAGSR is giving me so I can lead a happy and healthy life.

What would make me most thankful of would be my furever family to welcome me into their family.
If that;s you please put in an application.

Sincerely
Crombie

DESCRIPTION:

Sadly Joe Joes person passed away which left Joe Joe living in an outside pen.  Thankfully the person who cared for Joe Joe's person while he was ill contacted us to take him into our care.  His pen was muddy, as was his food bowl and his water bowl was green.  He was covered in mud and feces.   Joe Joe is very confused at this time, the recent changes have him scared.  He is such a sweet, friendly boy.  He craves human affection, he will lean into you for security and petting.  Not having any information on him, we are learning as we go.  With his friendly personality, we are confident with time he will adjust to the better life he is now experiencing.

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.

Oliver
OliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliver
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.

Update:

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. 


Update:

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.


Update:

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?

DESCRIPTION:

Rambo came to us as owner surrender as his former person was not able to continue to care for him. Rambo is a friendly boy, although he is unsettled with the recent changes in his life. He needs time to adjust to all of the changes. He can be mouthy when things he shouldn't have are taken away from him. Training, of course, will help him learn manners, work on any unwanted behaviors and help him settle into life with a new family. He lived with a cat in his previous home and we are told he did fine. He is currently in a foster home being given time to adjust to losing his home and family. His foster will provide an update soon.

DESCRIPTION:

Rex is one of 22 dogs from the Carolinas that needed help due to Hurricane Florence. 

Rex is handsome boy who is looking for someone to bond with.  A family that will take him to training, provide structure and guidance.  As he is new to us we are still learning more about him, watch for updates.

Update:

Unfortunately, Rex tested heartworm positive when seen by MAGSR's vet. This could have been avoided had he been kept on monthly heartworm preventatives. Rex is in the beginning stages of his heartworm treatment, which of course MAGSR will pay for his entire treatment. Treatment is expensive, but Rex is certainly worth the cost. Donations towards his treatment would be greatly appreciated, this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs. He will have to take it slow for the next few months while he undergoes treatment, so lots of rest will be in order.


Update:

Rex is slowly settling in to his foster home. This sweet boy must have had a very hard past because he’s just so confused in a home. He enjoys watching out the window and taking naps with his foster mom. Poor Rex is so scared of the steps and of the kitchen, but his foster mom is working with him to help him gain some confidence with that. Rex does well going into his crate, which is good because he will require crate restriction during his heartworm treatment. Rex is affectionate and enjoys attention from his human – he just wants someone to love him. Rex is a quiet dog and needs a quiet and more calm home life so he can continue to build confidence and learn to trust humans again. If you’re willing to be patient and give Rex a chance, please ask to meet him today.

DESCRIPTION:

Trooper was picked up  as a stray by Animal Control.  Upon being found he had numerous abrasions and gashes on his legs.  He was seen by the vet immediately, had his wounds cleaned and sutured.  He is still healing from whatever caused his injuries, but is healing well. Trooper is need of a strong handler, someone that will set rules and provide structure.  Training is needed, as he needs to learn manners and good dog behavior.  Trooper can be spooked by things he is not familiar with so ongoing socialization is important.

Unfortunately, Trooper tested heartworm positive when seen by MAGSR's vet. This could have been avoided had he been kept on monthly heartworm preventatives. Trooper is in the beginning stages of his heartworm treatment, which of course MAGSR will pay for his entire treatment. Treatment is expensive, but Trooper is certainly worth the cost. Donations towards his treatment would be greatly appreciated, this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs.
