Rocket (fka James) partied with his new family on New Year's Eve! They include two little humans, a Great Dane sister, and two feline siblings. Rocket is settling in nicely and is working on his manners every day. His housetraining is going well and he sits and waits at the door before getting the ok to go out the door. Rocket likes to zoom around the yard and he and his canine sister wear each other out. Rocket gathers all his toys at the end of the day for his pre-bedtime siesta. Rocket and his family are already signed up for basic obedience! Adopted 12/29/17.


Jake came into rescue in 2014 at the age of 11 due to a change in his household, and we soon learned that he had some medical issues that would require long-term care. We were fortunate to find a very loving couple who doted on Jake and played his favorite games with him. We are grateful Jake was so loved with his forever foster family. Jake crossed the Rainbow Bridge on December 28th, 2017. 


Joey's new mom fell in love with him the moment she met him, and the feeling was mutual! She called Joey's name and he came right to her. As soon as he settles into his new home and the weather warms up, Joey and mom look forward to daily walks together. For now, he loves to play in the snow and catch the snowballs his mom tosses for him in his fenced backyard, and he has already discovered the rabbits and squirrels. Joey's family also includes a canine sister named Stella who is showing him the ropes, as she did for previous MNSR Sheltie Becca. Welcome home, Joey! Adopted 12/26/17. 


Maggie was rescued from neglect after a breeding facility named Country Pride Kennel (now Pine River Stable) in Pine River, MN was raided by the local sheriff. She was relinquished to MNSR and started her new life as a foster dog. She has learned all about the good life from her two foster sisters, Daisy and MNSR alum Cupcake, and her foster brother Jasper. Maggie's foster mom decided that Maggie is home to stay. Maggie enjoys leashed walks in the woods, playing dog games, and hand-targeting for cheese (which she loves!). Adopted 12/25/17.
