Story
We found Busta when we were living in Louisiana. He kept escaping from his owner's yard, & he would always come to our house & want to hang out with us & our dogs. I would give him water & let him inside if it was too hot. We ended up asking our neighbor if she would want to let us adopt him from her, and she agreed! So, we brought him with us to Illinois, but now we have to move into a place where he won't be allowed. This is the only place in the area we can afford. We want to stay nearby family. Our neighbors in Louisiana claimed he was about the same age as my husky, which would be 13 years old this year. He is a very agile & strong dog for his age. He has a submissive temperment, is wonderful with kids and people of all ages. We got him comfortable in a crate inside at night, and he will sleep outdoors in a pen if needed also. He has separation anxiety & can be destructive if left alone, so he must be crated if left alone or unsupervised. He loves snuggles & pets!!

Story
Opossum will not play dead for you!  He will just want to give you lots of kisses! He is approximately 6-7 months old and about 35lbs and has a playful personality! "Possum" is doing wonderfully in his foster home!  He is house trained, sleeps great in his crate the entire night and is a big, softie cuddlebug! He is practicing walking on a leash (does better with a harness versus just a collar) and will find any sunny spot in the house to lay down and nap!  He does climb "cyclone" type fences, so either a tall fence or solid fence would suit him best! He gets along with all dogs - both big and small!  We recommend obedience training for all puppies!    **Breed or size (once fully grown) is a 'best guess' and is not guaranteed since they arrived into rescue without either parent. **Magnificent Mutts is an all foster home based rescue and meets are held by appointment with the entire family in attendance. Please ensure your current pets are up to date with vetting, have landlord/HOA approval and are prepared to take your new family member home at the adoption appointment.  Thank you for your interest!                    If you are interested in adoption, please complete the "Application to Adopt" which can be accessed from this link: (   www.magnificentmutts.org )  No phone calls please, emails only. Adult dog adoption donations start at: $300 (cash only) Puppies adoption donations start at: $360 (cash only) Prices are subject to change, please contact for specific adoption donation. Please visit www.magnificentmutts.org for the online dog application. June 13, 2024, 6:04 pm

Story
An Olive Branch That Built A Bridge...  Over the past several months, 70 dogs have been stranded in the West Bank. The sanctuary they called home and the only safe place they’d ever known, was being evacuated due to the encroaching military advancement. Finally, there was a chance a cargo plane might be able to fly them to the United States. The SPCA International, Daily Hugz, Race for Life Rescue and Wings of Rescue coordinated with numerous Rescues and Shelters throughout the US to help evacuate these deserving dogs! When Mag Mutts was contacted, the Board didn't hesitate and committed to 8 dogs! More information about this 7500 mile long rescue mission can be found on the "Race For Life Rescue" Facebook Page!  Goda is approximately 10 months old, said to be very friendly and good with other dogs. More information to come once she gets settled into her foster home!  We always recommend obedience training for all dogs!                **Breed or size (once fully grown) is a 'best guess' and is not guaranteed since they arrived into rescue without either parent.  * *Magnificent Mutts is an all foster home based rescue and meets are held by appointment with the entire family in attendance.

Story
Jenny is the recent Mom of the 5 "J" theme beautiful pups (who have now been adopted)!  She has done an amazing job with them and is now ready for a home of her own! She is approximately 2-3 years old and between 50-55lbs. Jenny is house trained and will alert you when she needs to go out!  While going 'in' her crate is not her favorite thing, she is quiet once in and settles quickly.  Jenny loves to play with other dogs and does play hard, so any other companion in the home should be similar in size as it may be too much for a smaller dog. She exhibits typical 'Shepherd' tendencies with following her foster Mom everywhere, is gentle when taking treats but does get 'happy feet' with new adults when excited and the foster family is working on correcting.  We recommend obedience training for all pups and dogs! Jenny's adoption donation is $200..      **Breed or size (once fully grown) is a 'best guess' and is not guaranteed since they arrived into rescue without either parent. **Magnificent Mutts is an all foster home based rescue and meets are held by appointment with the entire family in attendance.
