Embedded thumbnail for Arbor-MAGSR-2018
DESCRIPTION:

Arbor was surrendered as his person said she had no time for him.  Arbor is very much a teenager and is in need of obedience training and structure.  He can be very protective of his person which needs to be corrected.  While this is a trait found in German Shepherds it does need to be managed by their person.  He has good leash manners and is crate trained.  He is currently settling into his foster home, watch for updates.

Update:

Arbor is starting to relax in his foster home with two resident dogs: a young bossy female shepherd and a laid-back adult male. He likes the human children in the home and is learning not to jump on them, which is how he says I love you right now. 

He’s completely unfazed by the roughhousing and noise that accompany young children and so far does not seem to have any objections to having any part of his body touched. Arbor is also learning that humans do not like affectionate nibbles on their ear and hands while receiving kisses. He takes correction nicely. 

Arbor is being fed in his crate and that’s where he keeps his bones too. He is not happy when the resident dogs approach the crate while he has food or a food treat in there. He doesn’t seem concerned about the toys. He does not react to the children approaching the crate while he has food in there but that is still being very carefully supervised. He brings balls and toys to the kids to play.

Arbor appears to be housebroken and doesn’t mind the crate. He likes to go for walks and has excellent leash manners. Arbor is very happy to come inside after his walk and knows after 2 days which house he goes into.

Arbor really wants a forever home. He would like to have kids throw balls for him and to go to training to learn good manners. He would be fine as an only dog or with a laid back resident dog. If he goes to live with another high energy dog he will need an owner who is experienced in being the boss while they establish boundaries.


Update:

Unfortunately, Arbor tested heartworm positive when seen by MAGSR's vet. This could have been avoided had he been kept on monthly heartworm preventatives. Arbor is in the beginning stages of his heartworm treatment, which of course MAGSR will pay for his entire treatment. Treatment is expensive, but Arbor 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.

DESCRIPTION:

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

Those ears are precious and that face melts your heart, such a sweet boy.  Ari would love to be apart of your family in his forever home.  He is settling into his foster home so please watch for updates from his foster family. 

Update:

Ari is a very sweet dog who is quite gentle and loves his humans. He has learned that stairs are not scary and can even be fun to run up and down on. He is respectful of boundaries in the home (no dogs in kitchen). He is easy to walk on leash, even if his heel is not perfect yet. Ari is aware of other dogs, but does not seem interested nor bothered by them, even if they are barking at him from across the street. Ari is good at staying quietly in the crate for a couple of hours. Ari has a great bark and likes to let the mailman know when he comes to the door. Ari sleeps well through the night on his doggie bed. Ari is working hard on housebreaking and is doing a great job. Ari is a very laid back dog, but does have moments of being playful. If Ari sounds like a good fit for your family, ask to meet him.

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.

Embedded thumbnail for Chevy-MAGSR-2018, Embedded thumbnail for Chevy-MAGSR-2018, Embedded thumbnail for Chevy-MAGSR-2018
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. 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.

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

GunnerGunnerGunnerGunnerGunnerGunnerGunnerGunnerGunner
DESCRIPTION:

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

Gunner is handsome golden boy.   We are not sure if he has any GSD mixed in, but he needed a place to start a new life so we welcomed him with opened arms.  As he just arrived in our care we are still learning more about him, so watch for updates. 

 

Update:

Gunner came to us from South Carolina by way of Tennessee, thanks to hurricane Florence.  This poor baby has had a lot of upheaval in his short life and all he wants is love.  He's a leaner, and a licker, and he loves naps in the sun, such a gentle soul.  He doesn't know many commands, but he's a super fast learner.  Gunner needs someone who will show him kindness and take it slow to reassure him he's safe, loved and won't be jostled about anymore.  Could that someone be you?

DESCRIPTION:

Kovu has not had much stability in his life, he has had 3 families before coming into our care.  His last person realized that he needed more than she could provide in the way of training and knew that he needed an experienced family to help him adjust to a new life.  Kovu has not been well socialized or provided with proper training.  He can be protective of his person if he feels you are not in control.  He will bark at people he doesn't know, but takes correction and redirection well.  He needs slower introductions to new people, dogs and situations in order for him to feel comfortable.  Training is an absolute must for Kovu and his new family as this will help everyone learn more about Kovu and get him on the right track.  Kovu will only meet those with a lot of experience with the breed and are strong, knowledgeable handlers.  Kovu needs someone who is going to commit to him, provide him with direction and consistency in his life.  Our volunteers are working with him, he learns quickly.

Update:

Kovu has settled into his foster home. Kovu has become affectionate and attentive to his foster dad. Unfortunately, Kovu was inexperienced, untrained and poorly socialized when arriving into MAGSR’s care. Kovu is anxious when meeting new people and needs a handler that understands this to ensure slow introductions with treats. Kovu has a high food drive and responds well to training in obedience with food rewards. Kovu has been confident learning new things and being placed in new situations. Poor Kovu must never have had toys before because he has discovered toys in his foster home – balls, tug ropes, etc.and has a fairly strong ball drive. Kovu is respectful in the home when not crated and is housebroken; however he likes to counter surf at times, and has a special interest in used paper towels. Kovu would do well in a quiet home without young kids or other pets. If Kovu sounds like he could be a match for your family, and you have experience with GSDs, please ask to meet him today.

OliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliverOliver
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.

We have no idea what Oti is mixed with, but we know it is a whole lot of cuteness.  He is patiently waiting to find his forever home and family.  With some basic obedience training and structure from his family he will learn good canine manners.  As our volunteers get to know him better we will post updates.

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.
