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?
Kennel Life Enrichment Fund(read more)
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: 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: Julia came from a shelter, she was not in the best of shape. She had a large hematoma in her ear along with an ear infection. We had the hematoma surgically removed and she is recovering well. She is a very calm and laid back girl, she would make a great family member for someone who is not looking for a high energy dog. Julia would be happy to be sitting by your side, hanging out and being loved on.
DESCRIPTION: Karma was surrendered because her humans could no longer take care of her. As is true of all puppies, Karma is sweet, cute and cuddly. Karma will require a lot of attention, time, and patience from her new family. She has a lot to learn and will need leadership and guidance in order to become a good canine citizen. She will get into things, chew on inappropriate things, have accidents, whine, and want lots of attention and love. Karma will need proper food and vet care for the rest of her life. In return, she will smother you in puppy kisses and cuddles while entertaining you with her puppy antics. If interested in Karma, please be sure you have the time and patience to raise a puppy and commit to her for her entire life.
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.
DESCRIPTION: Lissy was surrendered because her humans could no longer take care of her. As is true of all puppies, Lissy is sweet, cute and cuddly. Lissy will require a lot of attention, time, and patience from her new family. She has a lot to learn and will need leadership and guidance in order to become a good canine citizen. She will get into things, chew on inappropriate things, have accidents, whine, and want lots of attention and love. Lissy will need proper food and vet care for the rest of her life. In return, she will smother you in puppy kisses and cuddles while entertaining you with her puppy antics. If interested in Lissy, please be sure you have the time and patience to raise a puppy and commit to her for her entire life.
Aug 5 Update: Lissy is such a well behaved girl for a pup of her age. She is learning to walk nicely on a leash. She loves to give lots of puppy kisses and enjoys a good belly rub. She is crate trained and enjoys her crate time for some R & R. She does well with dogs of all sizes. Lissy will not be a large girl, which actually makes handling her that much easier. If you are looking for a well socialized girl, great with children, cats and other dogs then Lissy is your girl.
DESCRIPTION: Mattie was picked up as a stray so we do not have any information from her past. She has been friendly with those she meets and gets along well with other dogs. She has a medium engery level, she enjoys playtime, walks and being with her people.
DESCRIPTION: Spirits family was deeply saddened that they had to surrender her, but unfortunately some unexpected changes in their life's made it so they could no longer care for her. Spirit is a lovely, happy and friendly girl who has so much love to give to her family. She would love to have the chance to meet you so that she can steal your heart.
DESCRIPTION: Meet Stefi one of our new girls looking for her forever family and home. Walks, playtime, socializing and love will make Stefi a happy pup. Training of course will help her and her new family learn more about each other.
UPDATE:Hi, my name is Stefi (like Graf for those who remember her). I am totally cute, soft and sweet. Everyone comments on how incredibly soft I am – you won't find another dog as soft as me – and I love being petted, getting belly rubs, and generally just being with you. Within 1 minute of meeting you I will be in belly rub position. I know I don't look like a typical GSD, but it's in my heart – I am loyal, I listen and I love. I have highly expressive ears – they go all directions and even flat – and they help you understand what I am thinking. And along my back and around my neck my fur is a little 'curly'. My foster mommy thinks it charming. People comment that they think I am a puppy – I have great energy, have large paws, and sometimes act a bit goofy. But I have the great things that puppies don't: I am housebroken, I do settle and I come when called, etc. So other bits about me: I love cuddles and dog toys, I need to continue learning my leash manners, sometimes I am a bit too much when meeting other dogs but will settle into it but you'll have to help me, I am a total sweetheart and I will steal your heart. I love stretching out and laying in some interesting positions. Squirrels are fascinating to me, but I didn't show much interest in cats (though haven't been officially tested yet). I love love love kids – just check out my video on my profile. I am the gentlest dog when taking treats, easily eat my meds with my food, am a bit of an escape artist but I don't get in trouble, and I am crate trained – though would rather be out with you. Contact MAGSR and learn more about me. I'd love to meet you and find my forever home!
