Courtesy Outreach


We know that rescue requires a team of committed individuals who work tirelessly to help animals find caring homes. The best way to find those families is by sharing their stories as far as we can reach. With this in mind, MGPR often shares information about animals NOT in our care, that need a bit of extra help to find their homes. We work collaboratively with other rescues and sometimes private individuals and families as a courtesy. All the friends in this album are under the care of a separate rescue or individuals. Each photo has the contact information for anyone interested in meeting these animals. 



Describing Diesel as a big, stubborn dog wouldn’t be a shocking way to describe a Pyrenees. Most owners of a Great Pyrenees would list those as attributes of their pet, adding barking, wandering and an aloof personality. Diesel is a very typical Pyrenees that is currently living in a home that is not equipped to handle his Pyr-ness. Mostly recently, there have been conflicts between Diesel and the older dog in the home. (Diesel was neutered after these occurrences) His family describes him as a good listener only when treats are involved. “Diesel is a great dog! He is amazing with children. He loves to cuddle up on the couch or snuggle in bed. He loves his belly rubs. He (would be) better in a country home as he likes to stay up late at night and bark at anything.”


If Diesel sounds like a great fit for your home, please apply with us :

*Diesel resides in Fraserwood, therefore once we process your application, a meet & greet would be held there.


Rico is a well loved, well trained Shepherd mix looking for a loving, active home. Rico’s current owner is being relocated very soon and has no place for Rico to go. (Please refrain from any negative comments or opinions that do not help find Rico a new home) Rico is fully up to date on all his shots and vaccines. Paperwork is available. Rico’s owner is hoping to find him a home through this courtesy post, so that Rico can avoid being surrendered. It would be optimal for him to go from his home into his new forever home.


“His name is Rico, he is 75lbs and he is very smart. Rico is great around all people and all children. He is usually good around other dogs, he grew up going to the dog parks. He is well trained and knows over ten tricks. He is trained with hand signals that pair with command words.” And obviously very handsome.  Located in Winnipeg, MB.
