I'm beautiful to look at
And wonderful to hold,
But please don't adopt me
If you won't keep me 'til I'm old.
Good things come to those who wait.
The saying really is true.
Just give me a chance to be a good dog,
And I'll never stop loving you.
Dogs with this banner are almost in their new homes so they are not currently available.
Dogs with this banner have recently found their forever homes.
These dogs need someone to foster them in a home until they are adopted –could that be you?

This fund is specifically designated to our dogs that are currently living in the kennel. Many of these dogs would greatly benefit from additional socialization throughout the week. Your donation contributes to daycare or other amenities available to the kennel dogs during their stay.
“Bonnie and Clyde” tearing up my soggy backyard this morning.
DESCRIPTION: Abby is a sweet little firecracker of a dog. She is not big in size, but she has huge energy and spunk - and is also a bit on the high strung side of things temperamentally. We are still getting to know Abby, but so far she is settling in very nicely to her foster home and is getting along well with the resident dogs, who are older, larger, and easy going. However Abby was returned to MAGSR because there were issues between her
and a small dog in the family, and Abby can get a bit excited when she encounters smaller dogs when out on walks.
Abby is very sweet and smart, is housebroken, and has nice leash manners, but she has strong prey drive and is sensitive and can react suddenly to surprises. As such, Abby will probably do best in a home without small pets or young children. If you are looking for a sweet, vibrant, active dog in a compact package, Abby may be your girl!
UPDATE: Abby is progressing very nicely in her foster home! She is getting along splendidly with the resident dogs, including another smaller GSD mix foster that recently moved in. While Miss Abby is a “diva” who will let you know when she is feeling slighted, and can sometimes get “a little too excited” about unfamiliar dogs out in public, she has proven that she has very good social skills with dogs with whom she has been properly introduced. She attended a group training class this month, and did very well in close proximity to a number of other dogs in that structured environment, and is learning her basic training “P and Q’s” nicely. Little Miss Abigail is a terrier mix, so she is and will remain on the high energy side of things, but she is just the sweetest girl who bonds tightly to her person, and is very outgoing and happy to meet new people - and most (but probably not all) dogs too, as long as proper care is taken. If a dog like Abby sounds like a good fit for you, please ask to meet her – it’s a good bet she will bring a big smile to your face!
DESCRIPTION: Aspen was surrendered as the older male GSD in the home decided that he no longer wanted her there and was starting fights with her. Her family loved her very much but realized that it was not fair having to keep them separated. Aspen is now looking for a new home and family who will care for her for the rest of her life.
DESCRIPTION: Cagney landed in a shelter as a stray and no one came looking for her. She has done well with other dogs she has met and has been friendly with people she has met. She is a petite young girl who needs to gain a little weight. Training will go a long way for Cagney, as it does for all of our dogs. It is important that a bond is created between the dog and their handler/family. It helps you both learn more about each other and teaches good canine manners.
UPDATE:Cagney has been in her foster home for a few weeks now and is settling in nicely. She loves toys and will bring them to her handler and drop them at his feet. She's been working on her social skills with her foster with dogs, cats & humans. She will need an experienced handler who will give her a structured environment. She gets along well with the other dogs in the foster home when its a toy-free environment. She's still got some work to do on her leash manners but that's because she's been working so hard on her social skills. She's improving with cats, but cannot be trusted at this time. Cagney loves people and dogs, but she's unsure about trusting them. Her foster will continue to work with her and building her trust with new people.
DESCRIPTION: Beautiful Carly found herself at a shelter looking for a new family when her previous family dropped her off there as she was chasing the cattle. So as you can see Carly will need a cow free home. She will also need a home where she is the only dog, as she prefers all of the attention and love for herself. She is a sweet, friendly girl who would love to once again be in a home.
DESCRIPTION: Sweet Evie was surrendered at a shelter when her family decided to move. They took the 3 month old male GSD but didn't take her. Evie lived with children in her previous home - the youngest child being 4. She is reported to be housebroke and trustworthy in the home. Evie is a sweet girl looking for a family who will love her for life.
UPDATE: Evie is doing well in her foster home and recovering from a pretty bad case of pneumonia. Evie is a very sweet girl and is very attentive and affectionate and focused on her handler. Evie will need structure and training, as all the pups do, and is waiting to fully recover and move on with her life and her new family. Please think about meeting Evie because she is waiting to meet you.
UPDATE:Evie was returned to MAGSR after a year, through no fault of her own, but because her owner could no longer provide care for her. Evie's foster reports that she is confused and nervous in her temporary home. Her fosters slowly introduced her to all of their resident dogs a little bit at a time, but for now, are allowing her to decompress in her crate and will continue to integrate her into the pack gradually and at her own pace. On walks around the neighborhood, Evie seems to be okay, but she is very sad she is now without a permanent home. Evie walks well on a leash and was friendly with the neighborhood kids. Evie is such a sweet dog just wants to find a family who will love and commit to her. If Evie sounds like a good fit, please ask to meet her.
DESCRIPTION: Hayley is a young beautiful girl with a lot of energy. She is in need of an active family who can help direct her energy. Hikes, walks, runs, playtime and training will certainly help with dealing her energy. She is no couch potato, she will require daily activity in order to keep her engery in check. If you feel that you can provide for a high energy girl, ask to meet Hayley.
DESCRIPTION: Lassie was surrendered to us as her family was moving out of the country and could not take her with them. In her former home she lived with dogs, cats and birds. Pretty Lassie would love to once again be in a home with a family of her very own. Ask to meet Lassie to see if she is a good fit for your family.

I've been adopted, thanks to MAGSR but so many more dogs need their help. Will you help them by donating or volunteering?
DESCRIPTION: Rougie came to us as an owner surrender, as her family could no longer care for her. Rougie has been stable on enzymes and living with Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI) for two years. EPI can be very well controlled with proper nutrition and adding enzymes to his food which helps with digestion. More information can be found at this link: http://www.epi4dogs.com along with before and after pictures of dogs that have EPI.
Rougie was on her way to MAGSR when she became ill. She is now at an Emergency Vet bleeding rectally with no known cause. Unfortunately, her owners were not able to provide the unexpected ER care she needed, so MAGSR stepped in to make every effort to save this girl. She is not able to get up and move, she’s on IV fluids, getting blood tests, xrays, ultrasounds and other tests for further diagnosis. Please keep Rougie in your thoughts and prayers as she battles whatever is making her sick right now. Rougie’s ER bill was quite expensive. Please help MAGSR help dogs in need by donating towards their medical care. A donation, no matter how much, will make allow us to continue to give other dogs a new start at life. Please go to the link on the MAGSR website to donate. http://www.magsr.org/forms/Donation.htm
