darla
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Darla was surrendered to animal control. Unfortunately, she tested positive for heartworm. Heartworm can be prevented by simply giving a tablet once a month. Darla is in the process of being treated and will undergo treatment in a month. Darla is a very sweet friendly girl. Does not mind being brushed and pampered. She is a calm girl not reactive to other dogs and very stunning. She is deep red and black and would make a wonderful addition to any family.

Darla's Heartworm treatment is going to be expensive, can you please help?

Dollie
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Dollie is a sweet friendly girl who enjoys going for walks as well as plenty of playtime.  Toys and treats are on the top of her list of things she enjoys.  Leadership, training, lots of love and affection is just what Dollie needs to become a well rounded member of your family.

UPDATE: Dollie seems to be a somewhat low energy but a super sweet girl. While she's not terribly exciteable, she has shown some good social skills and has a lot of personality. As of now, she is a little overweight and when she slims down a little, we might see her energy level pick up. We have found her to be food motivated and she understands a few of the basics like sit and down. She wants to be a perfect lady but frequently looks over her shoulder to check in with you. We feel that she might be better suited around older children and not around toddlers or very young adolescents. She would not do well in chaotic, ever changing environments. She would be a great companion for someone with a lifestyle of consistency, repetition and possibly that likes to take walks and will be patient with her. In the hands of someone who is patient and experienced, she warms up quickly and shows both trust and respect. If you give Dollie a little of your time and patience to show you what she is all about, it's hard to not fall in love with her.

Duchess
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Duchess was surrendered to us as her former person could have her where she lived.  She was taken in by the dog groomer as she did not want Duchess going to the shelter, she then reached out to MAGSR.  Duchess is a gorgeous Black and Tan bi-color petite girl.  She is somewhat timid when meeting new people but that is to be expected with all of the recent moves.  Given a few minutes Duchess warms ups to her admirers.  The person who surrendered her to us does not have children so we are not sure at this time how she will do them.  She loves to play with other dogs and was fine with resident cat.  Training, which is mandatory, will go along way for both Duchess and her new family.  This will help build not only her confidence but also creates a bond.  Ask to meet Duchess to see if she is a good fit for your family.

harlan

Camera Click here for more pictures

 

DESCRIPTION: Harlan is our birthday girl! She will be celebrating her 3rd birthday on Oct. 7. In Harlen's previous home she lived with 2 other female dogs. Unfortunately Harlen and one of the other dogs were not getting along well as both were wanting to be the alpha female. Since Harlan was the newest and youngest girl of the pack the family felt it best that they find Harlen a new home. Harlen lived with children in her previous home, she is friendly with people, she is house broken, crate trained and knows many commands. If you are looking for a girl to take for walks, hikes, play fetch with, then Harlen is your girl. Please set up an appointment to see if Harlen is a good fit for your family.

UPDATE: Harlan’s tail injury has healed and she is settling into a routine at her foster home.  She is house broken and very comfortable in her crate.  She has intense ball drive and is very good off leash.  She is a high energy, athletic girl and would make a great jogging partner, competitive frisbee or agility dog. She is affectionate and very handler focused.

haylee

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.

Jillian
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Jillian was taken by animal control from her former home due to neglect. She was found living in a yard with no food, water or shelter and 2 dead rodents nearby. The yard was also filled with animal waste. Well that has all changed now that she is with MAGSR.

She has a lot of energy and will most likely excel at agility or some other type of sport. She would love a family that will take her for walks and spend time playing with her. If you are into jogging, Jillian would make a great running partner. Jillian has had no training. She is a strong girl with no leash manners so training is an absolute must, as it is for all of our dogs. Jillian is ready to know the comforts of a home, be provided with regular nutritious meals, clean water and love.

UPDATE: Jillian is such a lovely girl, she enjoys all of the attention she receives from our volunteers. She has been working on her leash manners and has made a lot of progress. Please ask to meet Jillian to see if she is the right fit for your family.

Lydia
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Lydia was found as a stray and taken to a shelter where she was on borrowed time.  Thankfully MAGSR had room for this sweet girl and took her into our care.  Lydia has scarring across her muzzle which was either caused by her having her muzzle tied or a halti type leader that grew into her muzzle.  We had Lydia immediately checked out by a vet to be sure this was healing properly.  During the exam it was found that Lydia has severe tenderness in her back leg, we are unsure if she was hit by a car.  We are having x-rays done and are awaiting the results.

For all that she has been through she is very sweet, friendly and loving.  A joyful and happy puppy who would love to share her life with a family who will treat her very well.  We will post updates once we have her results.

DESCRIPTION: Lydia's x-rays revealed that she has very bad hips and will require surgery. She has no muscle in her hind end caused from lack of room to move and exercise. She is also very under weight, weighing only 43 lbs and she should weigh between 60-65 lbs. Lydia is in pain but is now on pain meds and supplements to help keep her comfortable. She is eating a high quality diet and receiving proper exercise to help build muscle. Once she has gained weight and muscle she will have surgery to correct her hip issues.

Sweet Lydia deserves to live a life of love and free of pain, but we can only make sure of this with your help. Donations to help cover the very expensive surgery that Lydia will require are greatly needed and any amount is very much appreciated. Please donate towards Lydia's care so that she can live the life she so deserves.

Willow

DESCRIPTION: Our beautiful and regal Willow was found as a stray and ended up in a shelter.  It is heartbreaking when any dog ends up in a shelter, but even more so when they are seniors.  She should be in a home with a soft comfy bed, going for leisurely walks and being loved and spoiled by a family.  While Willow is no spring chicken she does not seem to be hindered in anyway.  She walks gently on a leash, is friendly with everyone she meets and enjoys the company of other dogs.  Please don't let the fact that she is a senior get in the way of considering her for adoption.  She is past all of the puppy and young dog antics, but has so much love and joy to give. Please ask to meet Willow.
