We love this girl but she is just throwing curve balls! Zena found the perfect home, she wiggled her butt and cocked her head to the side just right, like she always does. Then she had her anxiety problem that was thought to be under control with a more natural way, take a turn. She came back into our care for treatment and to get to the base of the issue, she started turning around and was a completely different dog! We introduced her to her home again and her family and our crew both agreed it was just too much for her. With that being said Zena is back and ready for adoption but will need a family with the following requirements and we will be overly picky for her safety.
At 3 years old, she is already spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. She needs a "tough" personality in the home one that will not allow her to get away with acting out. Zena is housetrained and now completely crate trained, she has learned that to be her "safe place". Her new and forever home has to have patience and consistency with training. She is on Prozac and it is helping her greatly, it costs $10/month for anxiety. She requires a higher quality food but it is by no means expensive.
If interested in adopting Zena and you feel that you can help her get over whatever her past did to her prior to coming to us the first time, please contact us. She is great with kids but due to stimulation she would do best in an only dog home, one in which her family can dedicate their time to her. She loves curling up on the couch or bed with you, she is just a little rough around the edges and her small glitch will not prevent her from being a fantastic family member!

About Maggy's Bully Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

MBR is a team of volunteers including the director and coordinators. We strive to save as many dogs as we can with the help of our supporters, we are foster and donation based so we really can't do it without you.
MBR rescues, rehomes we also rehabilitate those in need of the extra time. Some dogs come in and fear the human touch and affection, others fear the slightest sound of a door creaking. Some of our dogs come from death row and others from a breeding operation that was going to "throw out" the dog. Others dogs of ours come in as owner surrenders, for whatever reason the owner can no longer keep them, majority of those pups come in ready to go!
We take pride in placing the dogs in the best home possible for any one particular dog. We temperament test all of our dogs before adoption all at correct, positive and safe interaction. Children, other dogs and sometimes cats are tested for positive interactions, if we don't see the reactions that are ideal then it is marked us unable to share with that particular subject in the test. When the weather permits we try to test with bikes, skateboards, motorcycles, big crowds and loud noises to see reactions as well, we get a lot of bikers so we need to make sure the dog is not afraid.
We do our best to learn about the dogs in our care to help place them in forever, learning all their little quirks. When placed in a different home canines can react differently, for that reason every adopter needs to keep an open mind until they learn the dog behaviors themselves.
We firmly believe in decompression time for dogs at a maximum of two weeks, although some can require longer. Decompression is a way for the dog to get acclimated to the new environment and learn the schedule you have placed.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Events can be found on our Facebook page a month prior to the event hosting. Any adult the age of 18 and older is welcome to volunteer at events as handlers, as well as attend play dates between dogs and encourage to join with personal dogs on pack walks with MBR adoptables!

Our Adoption Process...

When adopting through MBR, there is a process that seems a mile long but with cooperation and consistency can go rather quickly. All adoptions start with our two application forms, one form being a contract/policies agreement and the other containing the screening portion of the application, requiring personal and vet references.
If and/or when approved through the application, a home check with an MBR representative will be conducted as well as a meet and greet. If all is approved, the dog is a match for the adoptive family, the paperwork is finalized.
Our adoption fees are as follows and go back to cover as much cost of the vetting as possible, please keep in mind our vetting is usually still more than adoption fee received.
Puppies and adults are $150+tax
Seniors(7+) are $100+tax
All dogs adopted through MBR come spayed/neutered, vaccinated (rabies, distemper, parvovirus) and microchipped.
