I'm beautiful to look at

And I'll never stop loving you.

Cannon
Camera Click here for more pictures

 

DESCRIPTION: Cannon is a playful and devoted shepherd that is patiently waiting to find his forever home. With a zeal for life and all it has to offer, Cannon enjoys playing ball, chewing on antlers, and prancing around the house behind his chosen human. During his time in the rescue, Cannon has had the opportunity to refine his basic obedience skills and has now moved onto more specific goals. He knows a lot of commands, but like any strong-minded shepherd will try to avoid following them if he thinks you won't follow through.

Cannon is a working-line shepherd; he is intelligent, driven, and quick to notice weakness. As a result, he requires a home with a strong, experienced handler who recognizes his desire to please as well as his need for leadership. If Cannon sounds like the right dog for your household, please inquire about him today.

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.

Update: Chris continues to be a great house guest in his foster home.  Chris has recently refined his obedience training skills and is a very smart boy, and does great with his obedience commands.  For a senior pup, Chris has lots of energy and needs to walk at least one day a time, if not more.  He's not much interested in toys or balls, but still likes to play, walk and go for rides.

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.

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.

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.

Sampson
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Sampson is a very typical energetic, outgoing puppy. He will require mental and physical stumulation as well as being taught right from wrong. He is eager to please, rides well in a vehicle and is playful with other dogs. Though he can play rough, he is an all around fun, confident pup. He responds well to correction and seeks leadership. He should be a star pupil in training class. He would be best in a home that provides exercise and leadership that a young, confident powerful breed requires in to order to become a well balanced dog.

UPDATE: Sampson graduated a six week prime obedience course at State Line Canine.
He also was raised with cats indoor and was surprisingly gentle with them (outside he sometimes would chase, of course)

stark
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Stark came to us from a shelter where he had been surrendered as his former person moved and could not take him with her. Stark is a very shy boy, he takes time to feel comfortable around new people. He would do best in a calmer home.

UPDATE:
We've had Stark for almost a week now, and we're pleased to report that he has been the perfect house guest. Initially, he was skittish and scared, but thankfully, it took no time at all before he warmed up to us. It seems pretty clear that someone has put some time into training him. He walks beautifully on a leash, he's been great with other dogs, he's house trained and crate-trained. He has a "potty spot outside," and he practically potties on command. He absolutely adores neck rubs and belly rubs. He also enjoys playing fetch, and he will return the ball and drop it on command. He's gigantic (currently around 75lbs, but we have a feeling he will be closer to 90 once he fills out)! He's still pretty skinny--all ribs and hip bones--so, we're working on fixing that. We've taken to calling him the gentle giant, because even though he's super playful (as a 1 year old pup should be), he's also incredibly gentle.
