DESCRIPTION: Blintz lived in his previous home with a number of young children, he adored the children. He enjoyed playing fetch with them in the yard, Frisbee or baseball.

Blintz is not a dog for the first time GSD family, he will require a family that has experience with and knowledge of the breed. Guidance, training and structure are all in order for Blintz

Captain Kirk

DESCRIPTION: Captain Kirk has a lot of healing to do from the horrid past he must have endured. He arrived at the shelter with an embedded collar in his neck and underwent surgery to have it removed. He also is suffering from demodex mange for which he is receiving treatment. We then found out that he was heartworm positive and has undergone treatment for that. It is obvious that his former family had no respect for the Captain.

Captains life has now changed for the better and will continue to improve as he heals both physically and mentally from his past. He is currently under the care of our vet, receiving the best care possible.

We can only help dogs like Capt. Kirk through your generous donations. Please consider becoming a sponsor for Captain Kirk to help offset the costs of his care. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated. We will continue to post updates.

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: Crockett found himself at a shelter after his previous owner became very ill.  All of those who have had the pleasure of meeting him have all said the same things; he is very sweet, calm, quiet and loving.  He is in a foster home with other dogs and gets along well with all.  He needs a little work on his leash manners as he does pull a little when he wants to investigate.  His fosters are working with him on this.  

Crockett would love to once again have a family of his very own to love and care for him.  He promises to bring you much joy and happiness.  If you enjoy the company of a more laid back boy then ask to meet the very handsome Crockett.

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.

Kennedy

Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Kennedy was confiscated due to cruelty and neglect.  He was left outside with no food, water or shelter in all types of weather, among other things.  It is obvious that Kennedy did not receive much in the way of good human contact.  He is quite shy and skittish, has no idea what a leash is, and he needs to gain some weight.  He did live with 2 other dogs whom were also confiscated.

Kennedy has not shown any aggression, he just shies away and hides when he is approached by humans.  Our volunteers are working with him on helping him learn that not all humans are bad, and to enjoy and relax being with humans.  With time, patience, direction, training and lots of love Kennedy will move forward putting his past behind him.  Kennedy would benefit from being in a foster home or an adoptive home.  Please ask to meet Kennedy. Kennedy will only be placed with an experienced "GSD" owner.

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. In his previous home he lived with a small dog and got along fine. Leo is a very stunning boy with his long brown and liver coat. 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.

Maki

Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Maki and his housemate/sister Dakota 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. Dakota and Maki are both looking for families who will not toss them out for any reason.  A committed family will do whatever it takes for their pet, after all they are family members and rely on us humans to provide them with love, care, food, water, structure, guidance, exercise and a commitment to them for their lifetime.  They are not disposable and should not be treated as such.

DESCRIPTION: Sambo was surrendered to us as it was discovered that Sambo was in pain due to problems with his hips.  His former person not being unable to afford any type of care or surgery, they contacted us.  We immediately had Sambo seen by a Specialist and it was determined that he will require surgery to correct his hip dysplasia.  Sambo is a sweet young pup that his has his whole life ahead of him, one that he should enjoy pain free.

Hip surgery is very expensive but Sambo is so worth it.  In order for Sambo to have the surgery we will need to raise the funds to cover this.  Donations are greatly needed and very much appreciated.  Please help Sambo live a pain free life by donating to his care.

Sambo underwent hip surgery on 8/28/14 and will be on crate rest for 6-8 weeks. Thank you to for the generous donations to help Sambo live pain free.

Toby
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Sweet little Tobey has had more than his share of tough breaks so far in his young life, but now that he has found his way to MAGSR things are looking up.  Tobey was found stray and landed in a shelter down south, very frightened, confused, and with a very uncomfortable skin condition on most of his adorable little face.  He is now safe in a foster home getting the love, care, and medical attention that he needs.  When Tobey first arrived he was very shy and reserved around people and was afraid to even stick his cute little head out of his crate, but now that he in a stable environment he is gaining confidence day by day.  And he certainly is not at all shy with other dogs, and just adores his canine foster family.   

His skin condition (demodex mange) is not contagious, is being treated, and is on the mend.   

Like all puppies Toby has lots of energy, and requires a great deal of time, attention, love, and patience.  And particularly because of his shy nature, Toby will need thoughtful and ongoing guidance, socialization, and training so that he can reach his full potential, and become the great dog he so wants and deserves to be.  Please ask about Tobey if you are prepared to make that commitment to this sweet little pup.
