Buddy
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Buddy ended up in a shelter then an ER vet after being hit by car on 495.  His leg was severely shattered requiring surgery to save the leg.  We committed to Buddy and thankfully the shelter had the surgery done. 

Buddy is now resting comfortably in his foster home, although he did have a little set back.  The screws and plate that had been placed came loose so he had to have another surgery to correct the problem.  With the love and care of his foster family and the wonderful Vet at HOPE we hope that he will make a full recovery... but only time will tell if the plate and screws will take.  Buddy is now on 8 weeks crate rest, with daily PT and very short leash walks. 

Please send Buddy positive healing energy and watch for updates.

Chip
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Meet Chip! Chip is an older gentleman who found himself on hard times after his former family fell ill and could no longer provide for him. He was surrendered to a local shelter. Luckily, for all involved, we were able to provide a caring home in his hour of need. He is now resting comfortably in the home of a very loving and compassionate care giver. Because of his advanced age, Chip is very arthritic, a little unstable on his feet and requires joint medication. A home with no steps is a must and limited non-slip floors are preferred. Currently, we are trying to take a little excess weight off of him. However, even with limited mobility, he manages to get around. Chip loves going for car rides and bonds very quickly to his favorite people. He is very charming and wants nothing more than to be loved and spend quiet time with his favorite people. If you would like to add a senior to your family, Chip would love to have a family with which to spend his twilight years.

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.

Freeman
Camera Click here for more pictures

 

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

Camera Click here for more pictures

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.

Jose

DESCRIPTION: Jose came to us as a stray from a shelter. He is the cutest boy and an ideal size for someone looking for a dog not as large as your typical GSD. This boy has a tremendous amount of energy and would be a perfect running partner or agility dog. He is smart, curious, and wants to please. You'll fall in love with him when he sits in front of you, tilting his head side to side as he waits for a treat. With training, exercise, and love he will be a happy boy. If you are looking for a smaller boy then please put Jose on your list of dogs to meet.

Kasper
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Kasper was surrendered to a shelter after his family lost their home.  He is somewhat confused with all of the recent changes in his life and will require time to settle in.  Right now he is somewhat shy, he just needs time to warm up to new things and people in his life.  This handsome boy is looking for a family life again.

UPDATE: Kasper has proven to be a quiet and polite guest in his foster home, and his housebroken and crate trained.  Sudden movements sometimes frighten Kasper, so he's looking for a patient person to help him feel safe.  Obedience training would benefit Kasper in building trust, as well as learning commands.  Kasper is beyond his puppy stage and is content simply hanging out with his human family.  Kasper's favorite past-time is having his neck scratched and if the scratching stops , he’ll lick your hand to lure you back.  If you're interested in meeting Kasper, please schedule an appointment.

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.

Prince

DESCRIPTION: Prince is an energetic, friendly, playful boy.  He is still very much a puppy in his mannerisms and can be mouthy at times.  It is obvious that no one has taken the time to teach him that mouthing is not acceptable.  Prince will require a family that has the time and energy that is needed to help him burn his energy in a positive manner and to teach him acceptable behaviors.  Training is a must and will go along way for both Prince and his new family.  It is probably best that he not go to a home with little ones due to his mouthing, this could be very scary to a young child.
