I'm beautiful to look at
And wonderful to hold,

Just give me a chance to be a good dog,
And I'll never stop loving you.

DESCRIPTION: Haylee is a beautiful dog with a very friendly personality. Once she gets to know you, she will cover you with kisses (aka licks). She is happy both running around, acting goofy and relaxing. She is wonderful with children. She was raised with an Australian shepherd so she would be ok living with one other dog. She likes her chew toys too. Unfortunately, this beautiful girl was diagnosed with Addison's Disease in November. Prednisone and steroid injections have so far helped to successfully keep her healthy. She may need to continue to work on being a good walker and being socialized with other dogs.

DESCRIPTION: 1.The definition of karma is the destiny that you earn through your actions and behavior:
http://www.yourdictionary.com/karma

Rewind approximately 2 1/2 months ago: A white shepherd adopted from MAGSR got away from her adopter. Many MAGSR volunteers were and still are to this day looking for that white female shepherd. One such call we received from an eyewitness, claimed to have seen a white stray or lost dog. Our volunteers reported to the scene to verify whether or not it was the dog we are looking for. While there, the white dog was seen. But the dog was confirmed not to be the dog we are looking for. We were told that the dog that was just seen had been roaming about for 3-4 months, through snow, ice, rain, blistering cold, etc. At this point, we had to keep searching for our target dog. At the same time, we agreed that while this "other white dog" was not the one we were originally looking for, this dog's life was also worth saving. Through a very difficult situation of looking for a lost one of our own, along came this girl and hence, the name Karma.

Prior to becoming who we now call Karma, this little cutie pie braved so many cold days and nights and she befriended a crew of some very caring gentleman at a construction site. They fed her various parts of their lunches and even bought dog food and kept it on site so that she would never go hungry. But she would not allow herself to be caught without the proper professional equipment and knowledge which is where MAGSR came in to play.

We are still learning about little Karma. But what we have learned so far is that she is a very exuberant, friendly, snuggly, sweet and feminine little girl. She already knows how to sit and shake (give paw). She rides very well in a vehicle and is very inquisitive about her surroundings. She loves being around people and warms up quickly to those she does not know. Because of her background, we need to assume that it is possible she could be a flight risk for some time yet to come as we do not know how she became lost. We will continue to provide updates as we learn more about her. But she is quick to nestle into your heart.

Kylene
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Kaz, Kylene and Kyrie are siblings. All three dogs were turned into a shelter. All  are very nice dogs. Kylene is a little frightened by her new surroundings but warms up when she is with her siblings. She is learning some leash manners and enjoys walks with her brother and sister.

Update: Kaz and Kylene have been in foster together for a week and both are bonded. Kylene gains much of her confidence from Kaz and vice versa. They love each other's company. They are both pretty laid back but enjoy their evening walks. Although neither had leash manners they have improved in the short time they have been in foster. Kaz is protective of his sister and always walks on the outside of Kylene herding her in and often checking in with his handler. They enjoy car rides, marrow bones, peanut butter kongs, and Naps!!! Often they are found lying side by side or with Kylene sleeping on Kaz. We are working on basic commands and both take treats gently. They are housebroken and get along with other dogs. They are still settling into home life but check back for future updates.

Update:Kaz and Kylene now affectionately known as K2 or the Dynamic Duo have been in foster for 3 months and have proven to be the sweetest pair.  Both have pefected their leash manners and have learned their basic obedience commands.  They travel frequently with thier foster to various events and are great car ride companions.  They have been socialized in large groups of people and dogs.  They love to spot squirrels while out on walks but correct easily.  This brother and sister share a bond that is very special which is why they should to be adopted together.  They are the two most laid back dogs that enjoy being with each other and their person.  They both aim to please their handler and are affectionate, attentive, calm, and loving.  If you're looking to welcome a dog into your heart why not consider Kaz and Kylene.

Update: My foster mom says I am just a bundle of joy, I will give kisses upon first meeting you and from there after. I have a favorite toy "lamb chop" I carry everywhere with me, my foster mom calls it my "baby." I respond to mom saying "Kylene get your baby." I will play fetch but only with my "baby." I am protective of my much larger brother Kaz and a bit more vocal when meeting new dogs. I am the guardian of the door and anybody who walks by the patio knows that this is my home. I greet mom everyday without fail waiting at the patio door for her to get home. I am tail wags and wiggles when mom gets in and I always bring her my "baby" lamb chop. I will insist to be pet while foster mom is on the couch and after I sit pretty mom will give me plenty of petting. My bedtime routine involves snuggling up close to mom on the bed and I will gently lay my head on her. Once I have gotten my fill of head strokes I will sometimes roll over and curl up in a ball to sleep other times I will accompany my brother Kaz in the family room to fall asleep for the night. Foster mom says I am a faithful companion where you go I go......I would love to find a forever home to shower my "people" with love.

Platinum

DESCRIPTION: Platinum is a beautiful, high energy girl that will need a family who has the time and patience to help her expend her energy.  Training is a must, as it is with all of our dogs.  She needs plenty of exercise and stimulation in order to help keep her young exuberance in check.  In her former home she did live with another dog and a cat.  She played rough with the cat, but when the cat played rough in return, Platinum would hide behind the other dog.  She has yet to be exposed to children so we are unsure how she is with children.
