DESCRIPTION:

Acton was a stray to a shelter, so we have no prior history.  During his time with us he has been friendly with our volunteers and did well with dog introductions.  Training is imperative with all dogs that are adopted from us, they  need to learn manners and become accustomed to their home and family life.

BeethovenBeethovenBeethovenBeethovenBeethovenBeethovenBeethovenBeethovenBeethovenBeethoven
DESCRIPTION:

Beethoven is one of 22 dogs from the Carolina's that needed help due to Hurricane Florence.

Beethoven is a furry friendly guy who is looking for his forever home and family.  With all of the stress and changes he has been gone through and a long transport to our care, he has handled it well.  As he is new to us we will continue to get to know him better and post updates.

Update:

Unfortunately, Beethoven tested heartworm positive when seen by MAGSR's vet. This could have been avoided had he been kept on monthly heartworm preventatives. Beethoven is in the beginning stages of his heartworm treatment, which of course MAGSR will pay for his entire treatment. Treatment is expensive, but Beethoven is certainly worth the cost. Donations towards his treatment would be greatly appreciated, this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs. He will have to take it slow for the next few months while he undergoes treatment, so lots of rest will be in order.

BentleyBentleyBentleyBentley
DESCRIPTION:

Bentley was adopted from our rescue in 2012, he lived with 3 children for which two of the 3 he did well with.  The youngest child, age 2 was not taught proper manners around a dog, Bentley of course did not appreciate this.  So, instead of correcting the situation Bentley was given up, thrown out of the home and family he has known for 6 1/2 years.  He also did not receive the proper veterinarian care and now  has an old injury to one of his wrists.  He will be seeing one of our vets for an evaluation.  He is also very over weight, so he has been started on a diet.  Bentley greeted our volunteers with friendliness.  Bentley is looking for a family who will commit to him for his lifetime, one that will provide him with the proper care and a lifetime of love.  He would do best in a home with children that are respectful and have proper manners around dogs.  Kennel living is no place for a senior dog that has only known the comforts of home.

DESCRIPTION:

Braggs was surrendered to a shelter as his former person said he worked too much, not having enough time to care for Braggs.  Former owner said that he is good with dogs, cats and children.  We have yet to see him interact with children and cats.  He is a friendly boy, young and playful.  Of course he needs to attend training classes to learn good manners.

DESCRIPTION:

Chevy found himself in a shelter very underweight.  He has been diagnosed with EPI, Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency.  This is caused when the pancreas does not produce enough enzymes to properly digest food.  This is very easily treated by adding enzymes to each meal which helps the body digest food. More information can be found at epi4dogs.com along with before and after pictures of dogs that have EPI. Now that Chevy has been receiving the enzymes he needs he has gained weight.  Please do not let EPI deter you from considering Chevy, he deserves a family to love and care for him and in return he will give you his devotion. Chevy needs to be properly introduced to new dogs, he does not do well with face to face meeting the first time round.  Once he has been properly introduced he does well.  He is now in a foster home, please watch for updates.

Update:

Chevy is a sweet young dog looking for a forever home to provide consistency, structure and training with a hander who has prior GSD experience. Chevy is housebroken and crate trained. He hasn’t spent much time in a home - he’s learning about stairs and his reflection in glass doors. He’s also learning what not to do, like counter surf, jump on people and be respectful to the resident dogs. He isn’t aggressive rather he wants to play and can be a little too forward. He needs to learn both people and dog manners. He does not appear to have had any prior training and is new to a prong collar. He responds very well to a light touch and seems to be a quickly learner once he understands what you want. He’s interested in squirrels and if a dog is barking in the hood, he responds in kind. For a young untrained dog, he is fairly calm and easy to handle. He doesn’t pull much on the leash during a walk. He likes to lean into his person, loves attention and gives kisses. He’s ok with being brushed and is getting accustomed to his ears, feet and mouth being handled. His EPI is well managed, with enzymes on his food, mixed and soaked in warm water for 20 minutes and dinner is served - Easy! If you are looking for a dog that is easy to train and loves people and you can provide love, toys, and training - look no further - Chevy is the one for you!


Update:

Chevy is adjusting to life inside a home. He is still learning dog to dog manners as he likes to run up to a dog and bark. Not the best social skill for a dog. He is getting more comfortable around people, but still needs slow introductions to people - we’re taking it slow. He wants to approach on his own terms. Once he knows you're ok, he's fine. Chevy is letting his human know that he’s not comfortable. He doesn’t like collar or people messing with his neck or hands over his head - his foster mom is working on that with him. With his EPI, he gets a few freeze dried liver treats to help with training. A calm, slow and gentle hand wins the day with Chevy - just take it slow and easy. Chevy crates beautifully and loves to talk to the resident female GSD when he wants to play. Chevy is getting settled in and is adjusting well - he’s a fast learner. Overall, Chevy is a sweetheart with a few quirks. If you have the interest in working with Chevy to provide the structure and training he needs and patience to earn his trust, please ask to meet him.


Update:

Hi! Chevy here, I thought I would give my own update. When I arrived in MAGSR's care 5 weeks ago, I wasn’t feeling so good and needed to rest. Now that I’m feeling better, I have a lot more energy and I love to run and play!  I think that’s why they call me Chevy Chase sometimes. I love to chase and wrestle with the resident young dog. There are things here I’ve never seen before like stairs, but now I run up and down them like I’ve been doing it my entire life. They also have balls here. I didn’t get it at first, but now, I LOVE to chase balls.  They take me to this big field and throw it as far as they can. I run like a bullet to get the ball and come right back for more. I stay close to my people. Like most GSDs, I am protective when there’s a knock at the door or something out of place is happening. I’m kinda shy around new people, but I love my foster family so when I get used to you, I am very affectionate. I’m really not crazy about going to the vet. My foster mom uses this word “no” - I understand that means I have to stop doing whatever it is I’m doing. If you don’t keep an eye on me, I might chew up your favorite baseball cap (Sorry). I don’t mind the crate at all and I’m really quiet in it, unless I have to go potty, then I softly whine. I always go outside. I haven’t had one single accident inside the house. I’ve heard them say I’ve come a long way in a short period of time - whatever that means. All I know is, I’m a young pup looking for a place to call home. I need someone who understands my breed because I can be willful unless it’s something I want to do. Could that be you? I hope so, I’m here waiting.  Let’s play ball!

DESCRIPTION:

Crombie is one of 22 dogs from the Carolina's that needed help due to Hurricane Florence. 

This precious boy is so loving and sweet. He yearns for the attention of humans, needing a family of his very own that will commit to him for his lifetime. Just look at that face, those eye's say it all.  He is settling into his foster home so please watch for updates as his foster family gets to know him better.

Update:

Hi there...It's me, Crombie, checking in. I want to tell you a little about myself. My foster mom calls me a big barrel of adorableness. I love my human foster sibling. We could snuggle for hours with me giving her lots of kisses. My walks are awesome. I walk nicely on the leash and am learning to sit to get my leash on. The crate is a good place to be and sometimes I go in there even when the door is open. I love my foster family but would love my furever family more. If you want a snuggle or two, ask to meet me!!


Update:

Unfortunately, Crombie tested heartworm positive when seen by MAGSR's vet. This could have been avoided had he been kept on monthly heartworm preventatives. Crombie is in the beginning stages of his heartworm treatment, which of course MAGSR will pay for his entire treatment. Treatment is expensive, but Crombie is certainly worth the cost. Donations towards his treatment would be greatly appreciated, this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs. He will have to take it slow for the next few months while he undergoes treatment, so lots of rest will be in order.


Update:

Hi there! Crombie here....I have made myself right at home in my foster home and my personality hasn't changed a bit. I am very calm and relaxed. I am on activity restriction but that's no big deal for me cause I don't mind my crate at all. Slow walks give me time to sniff some extra and no running, jumping or playing isn't so bad for the next couple of months. I spend my time out of the crate either on my foster mom's lap or laying next to my human foster sibling. I eat and drink in my crate so I know it's a good place to be. Getting out of my crate can be challenging because I'm excited to get out, so I don't want to sit, but my foster mom makes sure I do before we can go out. Hopefully this heart worm thing doesn't scare you away ... MAGSR takes care of all of it and all you need to do is give my my medicine, keep me calm during the treatment (which isn't tough) and love me (that's the easy part) Talk to you soon....Crombie


Update:

It's me again! I have had my first ventures with the resident dogs this week. There is a dominant female shepherd and a second in command. The dominant shepherd loves me but can't figure out why I don't know what playing is. So we just chew bones together on the floor. Maybe I will figure out play in time but hopefully not too soon because I'm on exercise restriction and then on crate restriction during my heartworm treatment. As for the other smaller resident dog, she makes sure I know she is second in command. We don't growl or fight, but she definitely isn't thrilled to have me around, so I just avoid her. All in all, the few weeks we spent just smelling each other on our humans has worked out well. At least I have found a new friend. Keep a look out for me because I'm attending events until I get my first heartworm treatment injection. Catch you later.....Crombie


Update:

Hello Again....Thought I would share some things coming into the holiday season as we all think of what we should be thankful for.....Some of these things dogs never have.

I'm thankful for a warm bed to sleep in.
I'm thankful for always having food.
I'm thankful for bone and toys to chew on (because I'm activity restriction.)
I'm thankful for love from my foster family.
I'm thankful for the resident dogs that show me acceptance and love.
I'm thankful for the love and attention the resident children shower on me.
Most of all I'm thankful for the heart worm treatment MAGSR is giving me so I can lead a happy and healthy life.

What would make me most thankful of would be my furever family to welcome me into their family.
If that;s you please put in an application.

Sincerely
Crombie

Grace
GraceGraceGraceGraceGraceGraceGraceGraceGraceGraceGraceGraceGrace
DESCRIPTION:

Grace came to us from a shelter we have no history on her.  Since arriving in our care she has been friendly, she rides well in the car and did well at her vet visit.  She previously lived wth another GSD.  She of course needs training, which help her learn good behavior and manners.  Grace is heartworm positive, this could have been avoided had she been kept on monthly heartworm preventatives.  Grace is in the beginning stages of her heartworm treatment, which of course MAGSR is paying for her entire treatment.  She will have to take it slow for the next few months while undergoes treatment, so lots of rest is in order.

Update:

Grace has completed her heartworm treatment and is now heartworm free. Once Grace bonds with her human and gets comfortable, she becomes protective of her space. This can be easily managed by putting her away in a secure room and/or crate when people come to the home. She will also benefit from a strong leader, who has prior experience with the breed, and who will provide appropriate correction and training. Grace will not meet families with children under the age of 16. Grace is very excited to be able to run and play just like any other dog once again. Now she’s even more interested in finding her forever home and family to share her love with. Could that be your family?

DESCRIPTION:

Kalani was found wandering country roads, she was taken to a shelter.  She is underweight, but will begin to  gain weight with regular nutritious meals.  She is such a love, she enjoys belly rubs, leaning into her person for petting and she is full of kisses and tail wags.  Training of course is required, as we want Kalani to have good canine manners.  She is young, so be prepared for an energetic girl who will require daily exercise.  

Update:

Kalani is settling into her new surroundings which is helping us get to know her better.  Energizer bunny comes to mind when describing her energy.  She is a busy girl, she enjoys her time in the play yard with all of the toys, but some tough toys are in order for this mega chewer.  She is still working on improving her leash manners, that will come with daily leash walks.  Kalani can be mouthy, not realizing her sharp teeth hurt.  If you are looking for a running partner, live an active lifestyle and have the energy and time, ask to meet Kalani

DESCRIPTION:

Kenya was adopted from our rescue when she was just a puppy in 2006.  Sadly her adopter, due to personal reasons, is no longer able to care for her.  As you can imagine Kenya's world as she knew it has been turned upside down.  She is currently in a loving foster home with her foster family helping her with the adjustment. She is anxious , eating very little and obviously does not understand what is going on or where her family is. 

Don't try to tell this senior to slow down; Kenya is quite athletic and runs and plays just fine, thank you very much!  Kenya loves to go for car rides and long walks with her foster family, as well as snuggling up for head rubs.  She has settled into her foster home nicely, also enjoying naps on her dog bed, hanging out with her foster siblings, and taking her chew bones wherever she goes.  This affectionate lady walks well on leash and knows her basic commands.  If you would like to meet Kenya, please contact our Adoptions Coordinator for more information.

DESCRIPTION:

Kumo came to us from a local shelter, he is now looking for a warm home and loving family.  He is a sweet friendly boy with a unique look as one eye is brown and the other blue.  He gets along well with other dogs, he was a rockstar in dog play groups.

Update:

Kumo is settling in nicely in his foster home. Once he gets to know his humans, he is very dedicated, follows them around, and loves lots of attention.  Kumo is house broken and does well when crated. He has no problem letting his humans know when he doesn't like something.  Kumo is starting to get more active and playful, especially with the resident female dog. When it's time to eat, Kumo gets very excited and starts chasing his tail, and running in a circle.  Kumo is changing for the better since he arrived into his foster home. He shows signs of being a very active dog, and loves to chew on balls. He also loves to put his front paws in his human's lap, lay against and give his human kisses.  Kumo is looking for his forever home - is that home with you?

Oliver
OliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliver
DESCRIPTION:

Oliver found himself in a shelter after he was picked up as a stray. He is sweet, handsome boy who is looking for a forever family and home. He is somewhat shy right now, but who can blame him with the recent changes he has been through. Training will help him build confidence, learn good manners and bond with his family.

Update:

Some dogs simply have a special something about them. Oliver is one of those dogs. Coming into MAGSR as a stray, Oliver clearly hadn't experienced the type of life he so clearly deserves. He lacked socialization and the proper care all dogs need. Since his arrival this impressive boy has made incredible strides in a short amount of time. In his foster home Oliver has had the opportunity to become both housebroken and crate trained. He has discovered the joy of toys and will even entertain himself. Having entered into a large pack, Oliver has adjusted fantastically to the male and female foster fur siblings with which he currently lives. His easy-going and somewhat submissive personality have helped him easily adjust to pack life in the home. 

Oliver's fosters are working with him daily to develop his leash manners as well as gain experience with the outside world. They are impressed with how quickly he is learning about and adjusting to the world around him. Although Oliver continues to need some time when warming up to new people, his sweet and playful personality slowly shines through. We are sure that Oliver will thrive in a patient household that will provide him with the guidance and training all dogs need in order to become good canine citizens. If Oliver sounds like a great addition to your family, please inquire about him today. 


Update:

Oliver was returned to MAGSR because he was protective of his human and home and his family would not put him away when guests were over. Oliver also was out unsupervised, jumped the fence and had gotten loose numerous times and had many unsupervised field trips around the city, sometimes not returning for hours. Oliver was not managed properly and he is lucky to still be alive. Oliver needs someone who will work with him to keep him contained and manage him by putting him away in a secure room and/or crate when people come to the home. If your willing to give Oliver a try, please ask to meet him.


Update:

Oliver has had his world turned upside down the last couple of weeks. Oliver is a big softie and loves belly and butt rubs. Since his return to MAGSR, Oliver has been friendly with everyone he's met. He can be stubborn too when given commands, but our volunteers are working with him on this. Oliver needs someone who will commit to him, keep him contained and work with him. Could that someone be you?


Update:

Oliver has settled in nicely with his foster family and established a quick bond, especially with his foster mom.  Oliver’s calm and charming personality make him a great company.  No potty training needed; he lets you know when, and handles his foster parent’s 8-9 hour workday without a hitch.  Oliver is fully house-trained and house-friendly – he remains calm in the house, does not bother any home items, and is trained to not get on any furniture. He is not a chewer and is not even interested in chew toys.  He is sharing the house with a 12 year old Irish Wolfhound mix who has admittedly been a grumpy, jealous, and competitive pest to Oliver, but Oliver has been calm and cool throughout. They get better every day, and the humans enjoy seeing them snoozing side-by-side by the fireplace. 

Oliver is a terrific walker. Well behaved, willing to stay at heel/left. He pays zero attention to the other neighborhood dogs with underground fences, even when they charge towards him. When walking through a familiar neighborhood, he has excellent leash manners. When hiking in a park or through the woods, the new sites and smells are far too exciting and some leash corrections are needed as he much prefers to roam and explore.  He is an enthusiastic runner but is perfectly happy with just a walk too. Oliver is also great in a vehicle and long trips are not an issue, but he needs some work to get in, which should improve with practice, time, patience and commitment.

This sweet pup is a keen observer and a quick learner.  He knows “sit”, “down”, “wait” (letting his human go through doors first), and his foster parents are working with him to be more consistent with “come.”  He responds very well to calm approaches and positive praise; less so to assertive commands, as he is stubborn. He is eager to make his foster mom happy and pays attention to what will earn him praise. It should be noted that Oliver is an impressively skilled escape artist, which can be managed with additional security measures (not relying on a simple door latch or crate closure; locks over any basic latches). While he does not get into anything in the house, he is motivated to get out of enclosures. The foster family persists with crate training as all of MAGSR’s fosters do, but Oliver much prefers the extra space in the mud room. He also seems perfectly fine with the run of the whole house. He prefers learning and working over playing. The foster family has found much humor in Oliver’s attempts to outsmart them. The chess match with Oliver is a great deal of fun. If Oliver sounds like a good fit for your future, please ask to meet him!

Handsome RexRex is on crate rest for heartworm treatmentRexRexRexRexRexRexRexRexRexRexRexRexRex
DESCRIPTION:

Rex is one of 22 dogs from the Carolinas that needed help due to Hurricane Florence. 

Rex is handsome boy who is looking for someone to bond with.  A family that will take him to training, provide structure and guidance.  As he is new to us we are still learning more about him, watch for updates.

Update:

Unfortunately, Rex tested heartworm positive when seen by MAGSR's vet. This could have been avoided had he been kept on monthly heartworm preventatives. Rex is in the beginning stages of his heartworm treatment, which of course MAGSR will pay for his entire treatment. Treatment is expensive, but Rex is certainly worth the cost. Donations towards his treatment would be greatly appreciated, this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs. He will have to take it slow for the next few months while he undergoes treatment, so lots of rest will be in order.


Update:

Rex is slowly settling in to his foster home. This sweet boy must have had a very hard past because he’s just so confused in a home. He enjoys watching out the window and taking naps with his foster mom. Poor Rex is so scared of the steps and of the kitchen, but his foster mom is working with him to help him gain some confidence with that. Rex does well going into his crate, which is good because he will require crate restriction during his heartworm treatment. Rex is affectionate and enjoys attention from his human – he just wants someone to love him. Rex is a quiet dog and needs a quiet and more calm home life so he can continue to build confidence and learn to trust humans again. If you’re willing to be patient and give Rex a chance, please ask to meet him today.


Update:

Hello, my name is Rex! I’m adjusting to my foster home. I’ve been through quite a lot since Hurricane Florence in North Carolina. My foster Mom thinks I’m real handsome and calls me Sir Rex Harrison sometimes. I love the attention I get from my foster parents and the resident dog. I’m relaxing and becoming myself. I was trained not to go into the kitchen and not allowed upstairs. A few times my foster Mom has taken me into the kitchen and upstairs but I’d rather not go there. My foster Mom realizes it’s not so bad. I like to wait at kitchen door and never get underfoot! I don’t get on furniture, no jumping up and I’m happy to retreat to my crate during the day for naps and to sleep at night. I like hanging out, going for walks and enjoy having treats for learning to sit. I was very excited when I first got here and had a problem with submissive peeing. I'm much better now, although due to heartworm treatment I’m on prednizone and really thirsty. My treatment is just starting. Thankfully, MAGSR is good to take care of the heartworm treatment for whomever adopts me. My foster parents are working to build up my confidence. In the meantime, I’m hoping for a forever home with gentle folks who can appreciate my good looks and charm.


Update:

Rex is doing great in his foster home. Rex has overcome his shyness and wants to play with the resident dog so badly, but is still on activity restriction until the end of his heartworm treatment so he's not allowed to run & jump yet. Rex walks well on the lead and doesn't pull and sits on command. Rex does well in the crate and is housebroken. He likes his neighbors and all of the dogs in the neighborhood. Rex is doing great but is still waiting for his fur-ever home - could that home be yours?

Rhee
RheeRheeRheeRheeRheeRheeRheeRheeRhee
DESCRIPTION:

Rhee lost her family and home as her Military family were stationed overseas until 2022.  Rhee was staying with a family friend but unfortunately did not adjust well and was not getting along with the other dogs in the home.  Rhee will require time to adjust to yet another change in her life, a family with patience that will provide structure is best.  She lived with children since she was 11 months old with no issues.  She has been through professional obedience training, but a refresher course with her new family is required.

Update:

Rhee is a wonderful girl.  She has settled into her foster home, is crate trained, and has excellent house manners. Rhee is currently a plus-size girl and loves to play, chew on toys, and go on walks. Rhee's leash manners need a little work, which a refresher course with a trainer will help to improve. Rhee loves everyone she meets and is patiently waiting for her forever home. Please ask to meet Rhee and be her fur-ever family.

DESCRIPTION:

Shadow was a surrender as his former person had far too many dogs and was not able to afford them all.  He is just stunning with his all black shiny coat.  He has been very friendly with our volunteers.  He does well with other dogs, he especially likes the females.  With other male dogs he can be bossy, so it must be the right fit.  Training of course is mandatory and will go along way in teaching him proper manners, good life skills and help him and his new family to adjust to one another.

DESCRIPTION:

Sheeba found herself at a shelter needing rescue.  She is a young, high energy, untrained pup that needs a family who will commit to training and providing her with structure.  It's obvious no one has taken the time to teach her manners.  She will require a family who has the time and patience it will take to burn off her energy by going for walks, playtime and of course training.  She is an absolute love, smothering people with puppy kisses and lobbying for your attention and affection.

TrooperTrooperTrooperTrooperTrooperTrooperTrooperTrooperTrooper
DESCRIPTION:

Trooper was picked up  as a stray by Animal Control.  Upon being found he had numerous abrasions and gashes on his legs.  He was seen by the vet immediately, had his wounds cleaned and sutured.  He is still healing from whatever caused his injuries, but is healing well. Trooper is need of a strong handler, someone that will set rules and provide structure.  Training is needed, as he needs to learn manners and good dog behavior.  Trooper can be spooked by things he is not familiar with so ongoing socialization is important.

Unfortunately, Trooper tested heartworm positive when seen by MAGSR's vet. This could have been avoided had he been kept on monthly heartworm preventatives. Trooper is in the beginning stages of his heartworm treatment, which of course MAGSR will pay for his entire treatment. Treatment is expensive, but Trooper is certainly worth the cost. Donations towards his treatment would be greatly appreciated, this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs. He will have to take it slow for the next few months while he undergoes treatment, so lots of rest will be in order.
