Baby
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Baby was surrendered to MAGSR as her mom was no longer able to care for her. This was a difficult decision but Baby's mom knew that we would find her a loving home. Baby was rescued by her mom from a breeding situation that left her fearful and under socialized. Unexposed to many of life's experiences, Baby requires time and patience to become comfortable with new people and environments. However, once comfortable, Baby blossoms into a playful, cuddly, and sweet girl.

Although Baby didn't have the easiest start to life, she has moved beyond these experiences and is making improvements every day. Comfortable in a pack of dogs at different ages and energy levels, Baby's sweet personality charms those around her both human and animal. Currently, Baby is living in a foster home with cats. She couldn't be better with them. She enjoys their company but also understands their desire for space.

As Baby has grown more comfortable in her foster home, she has begun to learn some of her basic obedience. Her leash manners are excellent and she is developing a sit and sit-stay. If Baby sounds like the right fit for your household, ask to meet her today.

UPDATE: Baby has been keeping her social calendar busy for the last month. She has attended picnics, reunions, events, and various other social functions. Participation in social activities both large and small has helped Baby further develop into a more stable and confident dog. Baby is still shy when first meeting new people; however, she is making marked improvements with men, women, and children. She often can be found at events cuddling with patient children. All of these new experiences and additional exposure are important steps for Baby to take as she moves forward.

Baby's playful side is now evident on a daily basis in her foster home. She plays on her own, with another dog, and is learning to chase a ball. No retrieval at this point but she sure is cute pouncing after a ball. The most exciting part of Baby's day, every day are her walks. Baby loves to be outside with just her people or with her pack. She hops along sniffing and checking in for love. Unaffected by barking dogs and good with loud vehicles, Baby will still need a little time and patience when approached by new people. If you can provide Baby with the love and patience she so clearly deserves, please ask to meet her today.

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?

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.

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.

Indie

DESCRIPTION: If you are looking for a girl that loves to play and you enjoy a good game of frisbee or fetch then Indie is your girl.  Plenty of walks, jogging or hiking would also be something that she would enjoy.  Indie does have prey drive and will chase all other small furry critters out of her yard, we do not recommend her to be placed with small dogs or cats for this reason.  Indie, as with all of our dogs, will require training.  This not only teaches her good dog manners but also helps create a bond with her new family.

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.

Uodate: 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.

Nella

DESCRIPTION: Nella was part of a hoarding case living in extremely bad conditions. She is somewhat under socialized due to her past living conditions. She has so much to learn and experience as many things are new to her. Given time she warms up. She really is a sweet girl. Nella would benefit greatly from being in a home filled with love and much patience. She will always be a flight risk due to her previous living conditions and will require diligence when she is outside and will need to be on a leash. Going in and out of doors to the outside will also be something to be watched to assure she does not get out unleashed.

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.
