Cannon
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Cannon's former family was no longer able to care for him so he was surrendered to a shelter.  This handsome boy is now looking for a family who will care for him for his lifetime.  He is now residing in and enjoying the comforts of a foster home with multiple other dogs and cats.  Please ask to meet Cannon.

UPDATE: Cannon is an affectionate and attentive adult male shepherd mix who has settled in nicely to his foster home. He loves long walks, playing with toys, and pretending he's an 80 lb lap dog. He gets along well with the two other dogs and four cats he lives with. Cannon bonds quickly to his family members and he loves following his people wherever they go around the house. Despite being a little underweight, he is very strong and gets uncomfortable if unfamiliar people get up in his face, so Cannon would be best in a household with previous large dog experience. He is crate trained, house broken, knows his basic commands, and walks well on leash. To help Cannon find his furever family, contact us to meet him today!

Chris
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Chris was adopted from MAGSR back in 2006.  Sadly his adopter unexpectedly passed away leaving Chris with no family or anyone to care for him.  It is obvious that Chris was very much loved and well cared for by his person.  He is  somewhat over weight and has been started on a diet.  He appears to be in very good health, does not seem to have any joint issues that were seen on exam.  He is very friendly and enjoys everyone he meets.  Chris is looking for a family and home where he can live out the rest of his life.  A comfy bed, good food, leisurely strolls, curled up by your side and lots of love are in order for this boy.  Please consider a senior when looking to adopt, they make wonderful companions.

Update: Chris has been in his new foster home for a month and has been a complete joy to have around. He currently is not living with children, but has allowed children (and everyone he meets) to pet him on our walks.  He's a pretty energetic 8-yr old, and has two walks a day, sometimes moving along at a good trot alongside a motorized handicap scooter.  Will sit and wait while his fosters talk with neighbors. He loves the outdoors and loves to be with his people while they are gardening or doing outside activities. He is not much for playing fetch but he does love a fuzzy wubba. He chases birds outside and he is currently in foster with a parrot that he gives a rough time. He is afraid of thunderstorms and firecrakers.  Chris is perfectly house trained and has had no accidents and he is also crate trained. Our first hot day we turned on the ceiling fans and he ran in circles beneath them. He is full of joy to have in our home. If you are interested in meeting Chris please contact us today.

DESCRIPTION: Freeman is still at a puppy at only 9 months. He is full of puppy energy and playfulness and of course has much to learn and to experience. Training is very important, it will help teach Freeman what is expected of him and also helps build a bond with his new family. It is a great way to learn about each other. Freeman is ready for a new home and family, please set up an appointment to meet him.

UPDATE: Freeman is a very active playful puppy. He is eager to learn and very treat motivated. He picks up very quickly and will respond to anything with a treat is a reward. He is dominant and needs strong, positive leadership. He is in a foster home with other dogs and cats. He is curious of the cats but in no way has tried to harm them. He loves, loves, loves toys. Freeman collects as many as he can and tries to shove several in his mouth at one time. He loves to run and play. Since Freeman was running as a stray he is possessive of his food. He is currently being hand feed to help him over come his fear of not receiving another meal. He knows all his commands and a very social little guy. He loves to go for walks and wiggles all over when he sees neighbors and other dogs. He is crate and house trained. Freeman has a lot of puppy energy and would be a great companion to another younger dog or a very active family.

jax

DESCRIPTION: Jax was living his life on the end of chain outdoors.  Thankfully he was confiscated and taken to a shelter and then placed with MAGSR.  We promised Jax that he would never have to live his life chained or outdoors ever again.  Jax needs a family who will cherish, love and care for him.  Plenty of walks, toys, playtime, good nutrition and a comfy bed are in order for Jax.

UPDATE: Jax is now living comfortably in a foster home.  He is working on his house manners and making great strides.  While not completely housebroken at this time he is well on his way.  He enjoys the company of the resident GSD's, romping and playing.  He does require a slow, easy introduction to other dogs but once properly introduced playtime is on. 

Jax does require a person/family with prior GSD experience that will commit to his training and socialization.  He is a diamond in the ruff just waiting to sparkle.

DESCRIPTION: Jose came to us as a stray from a shelter. He is the cutest boy and an idea size for someone looking for a dog not as large as your typical GSD, but he sure looks like a GSD. We loving call the smaller dogs pocket Shepherds. At this time he is a little unsure of his new surroundings, but that is to be expected with the changes in his life. With time, love and patience he will shine. If you are looking for a smaller boy then please put Jose on your list of dogs to meet.

Kaz
CameraClick here for more pictures

 

DESCRIPTION: Kaz, Kylene, and Kyrie are siblings. All three dogs were turned into a shelter. All  are very nice dogs. Kaz is pretty laid back and walks pretty well on a leash. He does enjoy the company of his sisters during his walk. Kaz would be a great companion dog for any family.

UPDATE: Kaz and Kylene have been in foster together for a week and both are bonded. Kylene gains much of her confidence from Kaz and vice versa. They love each other's company. They are both pretty laid back but enjoy their evening walks. Although neither had leash manners they have improved in the short time they have been in foster. Kaz is protective of his sister and always walks on the outside of Kylene herding her in and often checking in with his handler. They enjoy car rides, marrow bones, peanut butter kongs, and Naps!!! Often they are found lying side by side or with Kylene sleeping on Kaz. We are working on basic commands and both take treats gently. They are housebroken and get along with other dogs. They are still settling into home life but check back for future updates.

Update:Kaz and Kylene now affectionately known as K2 or the Dynamic Duo have been in foster for 3 months and have proven to be the sweetest pair.  Both have pefected their leash manners and have learned their basic obedience commands.  They travel frequently with thier foster to various events and are great car ride companions.  They have been socialized in large groups of people and dogs.  They love to spot squirrels while out on walks but correct easily.  This brother and sister share a bond that is very special which is why they should to be adopted together.  They are the two most laid back dogs that enjoy being with each other and their person.  They both aim to please their handler and are affectionate, attentive, calm, and loving.  If you're looking to welcome a dog into your heart why not consider Kaz and Kylene.

Update: My foster mom tells me I am a gentle giant and a wise soul. When you look into my eyes you immediately feel a deep connection with me. I maybe 6 years old but I still have a spring in my step and will be bounding around when I greet you at the door. If foster mom is not quick enough to get me leashed up to go outside I will let her know I am excited with a few playful barks. I am not fond of toys but will enjoy a marrow bone till it is thoroughly licked clean. I love my sister Kylene so much I will let her steal my bones when I am not looking.  Foster mom says I am the most gentle and easy going dog she has had the pleasure to foster. One of my favorite things to do is roll on my back and shimmy myself around either in the grass or on the carpet. I will flop myself on my back just to get some belly rubs. I sleep peacefully on my 42 inch orthopedic bed and would enjoy nothing more than to have someone to spend the rest of my life with.

DESCRIPTION: Leo was surrendered to us as his former family did not have time for him. They want him to have a family that can give him the attention he deserves.

He is very friendly after his initial shyness when meeting new people.

Leo does have an eye condition known as Pannus for which he was recently diagnosed. He will require daily eye drops for the rest of his life and will need to wear doggles (dog sunglasses) when exposed to bright ultraviolet light.

DESCRIPTION: Maki and his housemate/sister were surrendered to a shelter as their people had no time for them. Yes we realize that Maki is not a Shepherd but without our commitment he would have been euthanized as the shelter was over capacity and sadly owner surrenders are one of the first to go. We could not take his mate Dakota and leave this sweet boy behind. We made a promise to Maki that we would find him a loving family just as we would for his sister Dakota.

DESCRIPTION: Riley was surrendered to us as he was not getting along with the small dogs.  He is a friendly lovable boy that will require a family that who will commit to him for his lifetime.  A good training program will help him learn good manners and form a strong bond with his family.  Lots of exercise and playtime are in order.  Ask to meet Riley.

Update: Lately I struck gold and landed in a foster home where I get to show off what a good boy I am. My foster family says I am extra special because I am simply a love bug. Not sure what bugs have to do with it, but I sure do love just about everyone and everything. I spend my days hanging out with a few other big dogs and some very outgoing kitty cats. I like my foster fur siblings and they seem to like me too. We play with the soft squeaky toys, go on long walks, and take naps every day. My foster family says I'm crate trained, housebroken, and have some excellent manners, particularly for a pup. Although this doesn't make much sense to me, they say I should let others know because these are things all good pups do. If your looking for what my foster family says is a dog for almost any home, I am your guy.
