DESCRIPTION: Ava is a beautiful girl both in her appearance and her personality, she is so sweet.  Ava is a high energy girl that will need a family who will commit to daily exercise, playtime, jogging or long walks.   Ava loves other dogs, so having another playful dog in her life would help burn off some of her energy.  Without daily exercise Ava can become anxious, so please be sure that you have the time and energy it will take to properly care for her.

DESCRIPTION: Greta was found as a stray with one of her puppies Garbo, they were taken to a shelter then made their way to us. Greta is a very big girl, she will benefit from losing a few pounds, but will still be a very big girl. She has gotten along well with dogs that she has been properly introduced to, although we do not know how she is with small dogs. While at the shelter she did meet up with a cat with no reaction, but we do not know how she would do living in a home with cats. As she is new to us we are still learning more about her.

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.

Kaz
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.

Mazie

DESCRIPTION: Mazie's former family had health issues that kept them from properly caring from her. Mazie has a lot of energy for her age. Her favorite pastime is playing fetch. She has not had much in the way of training or guidance so our volunteers will start working with her. It is imperative, as it is with all of our dogs, that training with a trainer continues once she is adopted. Training not only helps Mazie learn, but also helps her family learn and helps create a bond.

Marley

DESCRIPTION: Marley is a beautiful young girl who has a heart of gold and a guardian angel who saved her life. Marley is blind and it is believed by the vet that she was born blind. She can see light.

Marley was found wandering aimlessly, very underweight at only 38 lbs, scared and dirty. Her guardian angel took her in to her care and did an amazing job with getting some needed weight on her. She lived in the home with small dogs and cats with no problem, other than not being able to see them.

Marley is now in our care living with a loving foster family. Marley deserves a family of very home, one that will properly care for her for the rest of her life. Please don't let her blindness keep you from considering Marley. Blind dogs do very well getting around once they have learned their surroundings.

DESCRIPTION: Beautiful Ursa was found as a stray and picked up by Animal Control.  No owner came forward to claim her, so she was picked up by MAGSR to be placed in her forever home. She is sweet and wants to be loved.    She is crate-trained and sleeps well through the night in her crate.  Ursa is a high-energy dog who will need a family who can give her lots of walks, runs, and exercise.  She is not good with horses.  She is starting to respond to her name, and will respond to come when inside the house, and loves to be rewarded for her good behavior with treats.  She is still a puppy with lots of puppy behaviors, but will grow into a wonderful dog with proper care and training. If you are looking for a young GSD to bond with and provide a forever home for, please ask to meet Ursa!

Willow
Camera Click here for more pictures

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.

Update: Willow has been in foster for a few months. We have difficulty believing Willow is a senior dog. Willow's  energy level is more mindful of a 3-5 yr old than a senior.  She loves to go for walks, long or short & will go out as often as someone is willing to take her, but she also knows how to relax. When she runs loose in the backyard she has a very graceful pony-like gait, makes you smile, she seems to haves a strong prey drive, chasing squirrels, birds so I'm not sure how good she'd be w/cats. Willow currently lives w/2 smaller dogs & has no problem w/either one. Willow is a special girl, very gentle, loving, well behaved in the house and is house trained. Willow, despite her background as a stray. At one time in her life she must have had a very good, loving home. Willow loves people, is good with kids, she loves head rubs, back rubs, belly rubs, loving attention of all kinds. She enjoys going for rides in a car. Willow will sit in the back seat with perfect posture and has never attempted to jump in the front seat, keeps her eyes on the road.  Willow knows all her basic commands, come, heel, sit, stay, down; she must have had some training earlier in life, she is a very intelligent girl.  She loves playing with her rubber squeaky ball, just makes it squeak, doesn't tear it up, when not playing w/her squeaky ball her next favorite is her tennis ball. Willow likes playing keep away, tug of war, & chasing her ball if its rolled in the house. Willow is a special girl. She will make some lucky family or individual a wonderful companion.
