DESCRIPTION: Asia was surrendered to us as she was not fit for farm life.  Asia got along with the other resident dogs but did not enjoy the livestock.  Her former family tried to integrate her into their life and home which included goats and chickens but sadly Asia was not able to cope.  Asia will require a home with no livestock or small animals due to her prey drive.  She will make a great family dog otherwise.

beanie
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Beanie has quite the story and is lucky that she had angel on her side. Beanie was found left at the door of a vets office in Turkey. She was just a baby with both of her back legs broken. The vet clinic took her in, repaired her broken legs and cared for her. An American in Turkey found her a foster family who helped her through her recovery. Once healed, Beanie made her way to the USA in Jan. 2015 to a family who welcomed her with open arms. Unfortunately her family/person became ill and can no longer care for her. Sweet petite Beanie is now once again without a family of her very own.

Beanie is still very much a puppy and has a lot to learn. She has energy that will need to be burned off with exercise, playtime and mental stimulation. She has been taught to sit with the snap of a finger and two snaps she lays down. She is house broken and crate trained. If you are looking for a smaller GSD and can provide her with the lifetime of care she deserves please ask to meet Beanie.

Duchess
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Duchess arrived in our care with a major break and bone protrusion at the shoulder of her right front leg.  She couldn't fully use leg, and it was obviously causing her a lot of discomfort.  Initially we had high hopes that surgery could repair the leg, but unfortunately the specialist found that the break had already started to heal incorrectly encapsulated the radial nerve, which meant the only option was amputation.   Of course this seemed so very sad to us, but as Miss Duchess recovers it has become pretty clear that the she doesn't really notice or mind all that much.  She is healing quickly and readily learning to work with what she's got – she can already get up and down, sit, and walk, and climb a few stairs, very comfortably. So Duchess she may not win all the races, but she  will be romping and playing like any young dog in no time flat.  She is young and has a lot to learn, but she really is as sweet and as loving a dog you could ever hope to meet, and is looking forward to a long and happy life with some very, very lucky family.  Could that be you?

Duchess' medical care has put a severe financila strain on MAGSR. Can you help?

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.

DESCRIPTION: 1.The definition of karma is the destiny that you earn through your actions and behavior:
http://www.yourdictionary.com/karma

Rewind approximately 2 1/2 months ago: A white shepherd adopted from MAGSR got away from her adopter. Many MAGSR volunteers were and still are to this day looking for that white female shepherd. One such call we received from an eyewitness, claimed to have seen a white stray or lost dog. Our volunteers reported to the scene to verify whether or not it was the dog we are looking for. While there, the white dog was seen. But the dog was confirmed not to be the dog we are looking for. We were told that the dog that was just seen had been roaming about for 3-4 months, through snow, ice, rain, blistering cold, etc. At this point, we had to keep searching for our target dog. At the same time, we agreed that while this "other white dog" was not the one we were originally looking for, this dog's life was also worth saving. Through a very difficult situation of looking for a lost one of our own, along came this girl and hence, the name Karma.

Prior to becoming who we now call Karma, this little cutie pie braved so many cold days and nights and she befriended a crew of some very caring gentleman at a construction site. They fed her various parts of their lunches and even bought dog food and kept it on site so that she would never go hungry. But she would not allow herself to be caught without the proper professional equipment and knowledge which is where MAGSR came in to play.

We are still learning about little Karma. But what we have learned so far is that she is a very exuberant, friendly, snuggly, sweet and feminine little girl. She already knows how to sit and shake (give paw). She rides very well in a vehicle and is very inquisitive about her surroundings. She loves being around people and warms up quickly to those she does not know. Because of her background, we need to assume that it is possible she could be a flight risk for some time yet to come as we do not know how she became lost. We will continue to provide updates as we learn more about her. But she is quick to nestle into your heart.

UPDATE: Karma is very playful with other dogs! But this needs to be monitored as she could get herself in trouble with a dog that does not welcome a 30lb puppy. In short, she needs to learn some manners and when it's time give the other dog a little space. She is a typical active, young pup and would do best in a home that will provide her an outlet for her energy.

DESCRIPTION: Louisa is so sweet, but she is somewhat skittish.  We have no idea how her past life was but it does seem that she is not use new things.  Once she has warmed up to you she enjoys petting and belly rubs.  She did enjoy her time in the play yard, jumping to catch the Frisbee in the air.  Louisa would do much better in a home with a family that will help her become a more confident girl.

She has been great with the children in the home just takes some getting use to. She loves snuggling up with you on the couch just hanging out. She isn't much into toys just likes lots of belly rubs.
