DESCRIPTION:

Negretia along with her brother Milo were surrendered to a shelter when their former family moved. They are young at 1 yr old, full of energy and playfulness. They do very well together, keeping each other occupied. They also do well away from each other, so they do not need to be adopted together. They do have lots to learn to become obedient, well mannered dogs, but training with their new family will help.

Updates:
  • Negretia has been in her foster home for over a week now and she is settling in nicely. Negretia is such a great dog & gets along well with the other dog in her foster home! She is housebroken and very smart. She walks well on a leash and is easy to train. Negretia is attentive and loves to be in the same room as her people. She is calm and well-mannered. Negretia will make a wonderful addition to any family that is willing to put in the time to love and care for her.

DESCRIPTION:

Marky found himself in a shelter with a terrible case of demodex mange.  Thankfully he was pulled and given the medical attention he needed.  He is still recovering, but is making great strides.  His fur is starting to grow back and his skin is beginning to heal.  While he still has some healing to do, he looks much better than he did a few months  ago.  Marky is now enjoying the comforts of a foster home.  He is a love bug, wanting to be cuddled up in your lap.   If you are looking for a smaller than average GSD who will fill your life with joy then ask meet our sweet Marky.

Updates:
  • Hi, my name is Marky (at least that is the name that they gave me). So what do I want you to know about me? I am a love bug puppy - seriously, loving. I love to cuddle and hangout with my person, but I also love to play and be active. I would love an active household who also wants to play, cuddle and go on long walks or runs with me. But don't worry, I do settle down nicely and respect boundaries that my person sets for me. I love people and dogs and haven't met anyone I do not like. I haven't been cat tested "officially" but I did meet one while at the vet and I didn't show particular interest in it. Birds on the other hand, they fascinate me (guess I set my sights high). As my earlier update mentioned, I had a really bad case of mange previously and had horribly infected and swollen paws. I can't even tell you how happy I am to be healing and feeling awesome. So thank you to everyone who donates to MAGSR to help doggies like me heal. My wounds are healing and the fur is growing in softer and better, and my paws are looking great – so I am starting to look as good as I am feeling! I would love a family to love me – who will be active, train me and cuddle with me. Please ask to meet me soon.

Candi

ADOPTED 03/05/2016!

Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Mix
Age at adoption: 6 years old
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 25.5 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 25.5 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Unknown
Living With: Foster
History: Stray to Shelter

Good With Kids: Unknown
Good With Cats: Unknown
Other Dogs OK: Yes

DESCRIPTION:

Candi has been on the loose for approximately 4 years after she got loose from her family.  Candi came to MAGSR after MAGSR volunteers tracked her and captured her.  Candi is understandably confused, skittish and very lucky!  Since Candi has lived on the run for so many years, she will be considered a flight risk until MAGSR volunteers have time to work with her.  Since her capture, Candi is doing well, but timid - little does she know that he is on her way, through MAGSR, to a new life.  Please check back for updates on Candi as MAGSR gets to know her over the next couple of weeks.

Updates:
  • Candi has been with us just over for a week now and we have learned a lot about her this week. She was actually out on her own for about 4 1/2 years. However, she has a sweet, gentle nature and likes other dogs. Though she is timid, she is learning that human contact is a good thing and is responding very well to us. She will climb in your lap, will take treats and is settling in nicely at the kennel where she currently resides. She will be a flight risk for some time to come and this cannot be overstated at this time. But on leash, she's willing to go where you request of her. Oddly enough, though she has been on her own for several years, she is showing signs of being house broken as she keeps her kennel run very clean. She would do well in a home with a well balanced dog that she can learn from. She will not get any bigger than what she is now at 25.5lbs. Though she is not your typical big, formidable looking shepherd, she has a lot of heart. She's a tough dog that made it through a lot of tough times and she deserves a family that will commit to her keeping her safe and loving her for the rest of her life.

Please be sure that you have the time to devote to her training and socialization, as this is key to having well rounded adult dog. 

Updates:
  • Sweet and beautiful Maggie is a loving, spunky puppy. At about 8 months old, Maggie loves playing with the other puppies in her foster home. She is curious and likes to get her nose into everything. She bonds really quickly, and loves to be around people all the time. Maggie is a tad bit skittish and needs a lot of socialization and patience to get used to her new surroundings. Maggie is looking for a forever home, where she can be around people and take walks every day. As a puppy, Maggie will need training and plenty of exercise, but will make a great family dog. Maggie is dog friendly, crate trained, and kid friendly.

Kobe and Paige were surrendered when their family moved and were not able to take them along. They are a bonded pair and enjoy each others company. We are hoping that a family will have enough room in their hearts and homes for both Kobe and Paige. We are learning more about them, but so far they have been a delight.

Updates:
  • Kobe and Paige found themselves with nowhere to go when their family was not able to take them with them.  They were very confused but found comfort in one another.  Kobe and Paige are now in a foster home together and they are very bonded, Kobe is the “baby” and will cry if Paige is too far out of sight.  They do everything together and are very well behaved dogs.  They walk nicely on the leash are already housebroken which is awesome.   Kobe and Paige know sit, down, come, shake, and Kobe also knows hug.  They share their food, toys, and bones nicely too.  They were raised with small children and are great with children.  They are also good with cats and other dogs.  Paige is such a cuddle bug and the most beautiful black and silver shepherd.  Kobe is the “little brother” although he dwarfs Paige in size.  Both love being with their humans but do comfort each other if the other is upset.  They enjoy romping around in the yard together.   They have a truly special bond I would hate to see broken up.  Please give these two sweet hearts a chance because you know TWO can be better than one!

Updates:
  • Marco gets along well with the resident GSD.  He crates easily, and sleeps there overnight.  He's had only one housebreaking accident since his arrival four days ago. He is full of puppy energy and shenanigans.  We're using small milkbones stuck into a kong to keep him focused on something he's allowed to chew (he's a bit mouthy).  Marco sits on command, and loves to be petted. He's very enthusiastic about taking walks, but will need some leash training.  He's a great little guy.

Please give this handsome boy the chance to once again enjoy the comforts of a home and the love of a family.

MAGSR ID: 1097

Cheri

ADOPTED 02/27/2016!

Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Age at adoption: 8-9 years
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 68
Ideal/Potential Size: 70
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Partially
Living With: Foster
History: Shelter

Good With Kids: No
Good With Cats: No
Other Dogs OK: No

DESCRIPTION:

It takes a special family to adopt a senior dog; it's uncertain how much time you'll have together and how much of that time will be pain-free. But the love you receive from a senior dog can be some of the most rewarding you will experience. Cheri is a senior who has had a difficult life, and is seeking a loving family to be her forever home.

Cheri was picked up as a 9 year old stray and placed in a local shelter, which contacted MAGSR to help find her a home. The veterinarian found that she was likely used as a breeding dog, and potentially dumped when she could no longer have litters of puppies. They also found that she had cancerous mammary tumors and a bad skin infection. With the help of our vet, we were able to remove the tumors, heal her infection, and she is now living in a foster home.

Since her recovery and adjustment to foster life, her personality has shown through. She loves to go for car rides and walks, finding giant sticks to carry along the way, and she absolutely loves to play ball. She can be standoffish with other dogs, especially if she doesn't know them, and thinks some cats look like tasty treats. And while she hasn't had any specific problems with children, we think she may be too protective and shepherding for a family that would often have children running about. But most of all, Cheri just wants to be near her family and have a soft place to snuggle into. If you would like to meet Cheri, please contact our Adoptions Coordinator for more information.

Updates:
  • Ben's foster mom informs us that Ben is super sweet and follows her around everywhere for her attention.  Ben gets along with his 1 year old fur sibling and Ben can be a bit of an alpha. Ben knows sit and is getting used to his crate and is working on crate training.  Ben has a lot to learn about going a good canine citizen and will require training.  Please remember that puppies may be ten to twelve year commitment, and they will whine, have accidents, get into things, and chew on inappropriate things.  With time, patience, guidance and training, Ben will become even more of an amazing boy than he already is.  Please inquire if Ben sounds like a good match for your family.

Apollo

ADOPTED 02/21/2016!

Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 91 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No
Living With: Foster
History: Abuse/Neglect

Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: No

DESCRIPTION:

Apollo, along with his housemate, Trinity, were abandoned by their family.  They were in a temporary foster home and never came back for them.  They are now both looking for families who will care for them for the rest of their lives.  They do not have to remain together as both are quite content separated from one another.    Apollo is a big boy weighing in at 91 lbs, with this kind of weight he is quite strong on the leash and in need of some leash manners.  We know in his previous home he lived with children but we do not know how he got along with them.  A good training program to help him learn some good dog manners and what his new family expects of him is in order.  Both Trinity and Apollo will need a home with no small animals as they are just too tempting.

Koda

ADOPTED 02/20/2016!

Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Age at adoption: 15 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 70 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Partially
Living With: Foster
History: Owner Surrender

Good With Kids: Older kids, over 12
Good With Cats: Yes, but will chase
Other Dogs OK: Yes, with proper introduction

DESCRIPTION:

Koda found herself alone in a shelter after her family decided that the puppy they bought was not acting like a puppy anymore. Dogs are a lifetime commitment that require leadership, guidance, and an unending amount of patience. Without proper training and guidance a young, energetic shepherd will find inappropriate outlets for their energy. Koda is a young girl who will need both mental and physical stimulation in order to meet with success in her forever home. Both crate trained and house broken, Koda knows some household rules already. In addition she knows many of her basic command, such as, sit, down, stay and paw. She is working on heel and the out command in her foster home. Although Koda is an amazing dog, she does need extra time and patience when meeting new people. As extra time and attention is required to address her socialization needs, she would be best suited with an experienced household. Please inquire today if Koda sounds like the right fit for your home.

DESCRIPTION:

Mandolin was found wandering in the bitter cold.  Being in survival mode she was difficult to catch but finally brought to safety after a month on the run.  She waited at the shelter for her family to come but that day never came.  Mandolin is now with MAGSR looking to start her life anew.

Updates:
  • Miss Mandolin is a real gem – as beautiful, sweet, and smart a dog as you could hope to find – and so responsive and eager to please.  But like many gems she is dazzling to behold, but she is not perfect.  This little girl has  a “big” personality and abundant energy and drive, and for much of her young life she has not received the leadership and direction needed to direct all that energy appropriately.  She can be very focused and will chase a ball until the cows come home, LOVES to run along with her foster dad on his recumbent bike, and is a whip at learning new things.  She is adjusting well to her foster home, is housebroken, and is learning to get along with her canine housemates. 

    But she can also be very excitable and inappropriately protective of her handler, and so will require close and constant supervision and clear rules and limits as she receives the professional training she needs to safely reach her full potential.  Miss Mandy is such a wonderful dog, so very lovable, and so much fun!  With work and guidance, she can excel at just about anything - obedience, agility, etc., but she will require an experienced and dedicated adopter, and a vocation, to truly thrive. 

    Miss Mandy is sort of like a fine sports car – a real pleasure to drive, as long as you are careful and in control with a clear and safe road ahead before you tromp down on the gas pedal.  If you are experienced and would like to take the joyful intensity that is Miss Mandolin out for a test drive, please ask to meet her!

Colonel

ADOPTED 02/13/2016!

Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Mix
Age at adoption: 1 yr.
Color: Blk and Tan
Current Size: 52 lbs.
Ideal/Potential Size: 65 lbs.
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Working on it
Living With: Foster
History: Stray to Shelter

Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: Unknown
Other Dogs OK: Yes

DESCRIPTION:

 Meet Colonel! He is a slim boy found running as a stray. He's a very friendly boy, loves long walks and attention. Colonel definitely needs to put on several pounds to get to an ideal weight. He announces himself when we bring him out of the kennel and really just wants to cut loose and run and play. We are working on basic commands with him but he would enjoy training class. If you think this sweet boy would be a good attention to your family please ask to meet him today.

Updates:
  •  Sadly, Colonel has had a pretty rough start in his short life. Shortly after arrival, Magsr volunteers noticed that Colonel walks a little different. Upon X-rays it was noted that Colonel has an old leg injury that healed on its own, it also noted he had gunshot pellets in his muscle.  The pellets noted on the radiographs are not significant enough to warrant removal.  Colonel is thin and has poor muscle quality.  He will need to build his muscle tone by walking at a pace that causes him to use his rear legs independently and going on walks up hills with a mild incline. Long leash walks, exercise, ball and Frisbee play will help keep his joints limber. Colonel also needs love and attention. Colonel needs a family to show him that all humans aren't cruel. Even after all that Colonel has been through he still remains sweet and gentle with everyone he meets. He always greets us with a smile and a happy dance. MAGSR is committed to helping sweet Colonel by stopping at no means to get him to a healthy weight and physically stronger.  If you are a family to give him the much needed love and attention that he deserves please ask to meet this sweet boy today.

  • Colonel has been in a foster home for a couple of weeks. He's a sweet, happy boy who loves playing and affection. Colonel has put on a few needed pounds and has more to go to get to an ideal weight. Colonel's ability to use his rear legs independently has greatly improved with daily long walks including short inclines, and he's good with 3 or 4 steps. Patience and treats were needed for his first flight of stairs and going up was easier than coming down. Colonel walks well with the resident foster dog. He enjoys fetch, chase, and tug with tennis balls and tug-of-war toys with both humans and other dogs. Colonel will protect his humans from squirrels and rabbits when needed on his walks, so he may be a "no" for cats, but we haven't confirmed that yet. Colonel is both crate trained and house broken. He's learning sit and stay, and is great with older children and eagerly awaits and loves ear and belly rubs. He loves to lean into you and rub against you to say hello - he's very affectionate and loves his humans. He may inadvertently knock down very young children when greeting or playing. When outside, Colonel enjoys laying nearby to take in all the sounds and smells. This sweet, fun boy is ready to be your playmate and a part of your loving family.

  • Colonel is easy going, playful, and eager to please. He knows how to sit, lay down, go to bed (crate), give his paw for a treat, and stop while walking on a leash. He's learning to drop a toy or ball after fetch, though he would rather play keep away or chase with it! Colonel is super affectionate and even tries to sit in my lap occasionally. He looks for his foster sister when back from walks and is super excited to see her, wagging his tail and kissing her, he's adorable. He "play growls" during tug and enjoys the challenge of getting biscuits out of a Kong or treat ball. He's not too sure about getting into the tub, but tolerates a bath with no problem at all. He really enjoys getting towel dried even after walking in the rain! He loves going for car rides, sits quietly or lays down. Colonel's PT is going very well and he's making steady progress and strengthening up his muscles! Ask to meet sweet Colonel!

DESCRIPTION:

Dixie and her housemate Yashi found themselves in a shelter after their beloved person tragically died in a house fire.   Dixie is a beautiful girl and certainly does not look or act 7 years young.   She of course is very confused right now with all of the changes in her life, but with time she should settle in to her new life. As the girls are new to us so we are still learning more about them.  Please watch for updates.

Updates:
  • Upon exam by our vet, they have determined that Dixie is approx 4 years old not 7 years old, as originally reported.

  • Dixie has been in her foster home for a couple of week now and is really coming out of her shell. She greets her foster parents with hugs and kisses. When she's in the backyard, she likes to run a lap or two, then runs to her foster parents and gives a kiss or two and then she's off to run another lap. She is super cute! Dixie is great on a leash and she's working on her obedience commands, as they need a little attention, but we have no doubt at all that she'll catch on quickly. Dixie can be a little shy at first, but she warms up quickly. This sweet girl has lots of energy and will make a great companion for her new family. If Dixie sounds like a good fit, please ask to meet her.
