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.

haylee
Camera Click here for more pictures

 

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.

Jana
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Jana had an unfortunate accident requiring her to be return to our care.   On September 9, 2014,  she underwent hip surgery - costing MAGSR over $5,000.00. We desperately need help.   Please consider donating to help with this expense.  We thank you for your continued support!

Jana was at a shelter waiting for someone to rescue her.  She is now safe in our care.  Jana is nice girl who obviously was not appreciated by her former family.  Training is extremely an important part of having a dog, which is why it is mandatory with all of our dogs.  It will help both you and Jana learn to work together and help creates a bond. Ask to meet Jana to see if she is the right fit for your family.

UPDATE: Jana is a very sweet girl. A little unsure of new surroundings but quickly adjusts. She is housebroken and very well behaved in the home. She has good leash manners, knows a few commands and we are working on more. She enjoys squeaky toys and loves to chase a tennis ball. She has been a pleasure to have in our home.

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.

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.

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.

Ziva

Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Ziva is a loving and friendly dog who enjoys adults and children. She has a lot of energy and was surrendered to MAGSR due in part to her owners’ increasing age and health issues that hindered their ability to give this loving dog the attention and care she needs.  Ziva does look or act like a 7 year old, she seems much younger in her appearance and energy level, she has a real zest for life.

Ziva loves to be outside, doesn’t mind rain or snow, and would happily spend the afternoon on long walks or running and playing “catch and release” games. She will even “bring you her leash” if you ask her if she wants to go on a walk! She enjoys a good nap in the sun, too, and also appreciates a good belly rub and having her ears scratched. Car rides are always fun, even if it’s just a short trip to the local dog park.

Ziva’s family trained her, including to heel, sit, stay and even ring a bell that was attached to the wall near their backdoor – the sign that she was ready to go outside.

Ziva is great around children – as her owners had grandchildren and young nieces/nephews under 5. She has not been around other animals often, except at the dog park and on walks. She is doing well in her foster home with the 3 resident dogs. She was spoiled, including having her own bed, toys and special treats, (bananas, almonds, ice cream).

Ziva was diagnosed with a mild case of enzyme definciency. She is has enzymes added to her food twice daily at mealtime and has had no issues for years.

Finding a new home with loving parents and space to explore and play outside would be ideal for Ziva. She has so much love to give in return. Ask to meet Ziva, she would love to be a cherished family member!
