Buddy and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Buddy found himself scared, hurt, and alone in a shelter. Although he wasn't entirely sure how he got there, he needed to get out in order to receive the specialized care for an injury to his leg. Fortunately, the staff at the shelter also knew Buddy needed help and quickly. So, they put out a call that MAGSR answered.
Buddy is a young, sweet but timid pup who endured trauma to his back left leg. Although no fractures are apparent, it appears that the joint is dislocated and unstable likely requiring a surgical repair. He is currently living with one of our vets so that he can get the care and attention he needs while he waits to see an orthopedic specialist. Although Buddy's care is expensive, he is clearly worth every penny. Please consider donating to Buddy's care as this will help us not only provide him with the medical support he needs but it will also help us bring other dogs with medical needs into the rescue. As we learn more about Buddy's needs we will post updates.
Captain and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Captain found himself at a local shelter when he began getting nervous around the toddler in the household. Although Captain never tried to hurt the toddler, the family felt that it was safer for all involved to rehome Captain. Having spent his entire life with his previous family, Captain is a little unsure about all of the sudden changes in his life.
Captain is a playful, ball driven guy. Having lived in a household his entire life, Captain is housebroken and crate trained. He also knows some basic commands. As is true of most shepherds, Captain can be protective of his people and will need to learn to trust that his new family will set him up for success. Training will be an important part of the bonding process for Captain and his new family. Captain is looking for a forever home that will commit to him for a lifetime. Could that be you?
Crowley and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Crowley's family made the difficult decision to return him to MAGSR, when Crowley was unable to adjust to living with the resident cats. As he moves forward, Crowley would do best in a home without small animals as his prey drive is simply too strong for them.
Crowley is your typical intelligent, playful, protective, energetic young shepherd. He is a busy guy who will do best in a home where both his mind and body are exercised regularly. Both housebroken and crate trained, Crowley understands the general rules of the household; however, all young dogs will try something from time to time. Having had the benefit of some training, Crowley knows basic commands such as, sit, down, drop it, leave it, and release. Although Crowley has already begun some training, it is essential that this continue as it will help him bond with his new family. If Crowley sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet him today.
Rusty and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
After a rough start to life and difficult circumstances in another state, Rusty found his way to MAGSR six years ago. This lucky guy found a loving home with all adults quickly, but due to circumstances beyond their control, his family made the extremely difficult decision to return him to MAGSR as they knew that we would find the home and love he deserves. Rusty is an incredible guy. This big guy has energy and intelligence to spare. As a result, he will do best in a home that can exercise both his body and his mind daily. He knows several commands and with good leadership follows through nicely. A toy guy, Rusty enjoys playing with plush toys and can be found carrying them about the house. He’s not much of a ball guy; however if given the opportunity, he will catch the ball a couple times and run around with it.
Rusty has learned to be a gentleman in the house; he understands what is not his and doesn't get on the furniture. He also doesn’t shed much! Already crate trained, Rusty finds comfort in his crate and can often be found sleeping in his crate at night. While not a “Velcro” dog, Rusty can usually be found in a strategic location where he can keep track of his people. Not an enthusiastic licker, when you get a kiss or affection from Rusty, you know he thinks you’re really special. Rusty has lived with an indoor-only cat for six years. In that time he has learned to leave her alone the large majority of the time. He may do well with a dog-savvy cat. Rusty’s ideal forever home would include plush toys, good exercise, and an appreciation for his intelligence. If this soulful canine sounds like the dog for you, ask to meet him today.
Stanley and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Stanley and his sister Daisy found themselves in a shelter when their mom unexpectedly passed away. Stanley is an overall easy going guy; however, he needs a little time to adjust to new people as he has endured so many changes recently. Once comfortable, Stanley enjoys walks, treats, and the ever important butt rubs.
Although it is hard to tell right now, Stanley is a long-haired shepherd. Unfortunately, he was so matted when he first arrived that he had to be shaved. His lovely long fur is beginning to grow back; however, It will be very important that his new family take the time to regularly brush Stanley, so that he doesn't find himself in this situation again. Having previously lived in a home, Stanley likely already understands many of the ins and outs of being a member of a family. Stanley is looking for a family that will provide him with the structure, guidance, and safety that he deserves. Could you be that family?
