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.

CHEVY Adopted

Adopted 1/31/16!

Breed: GSD mix
Age: 8 months old 
Color: White
Current Size: 75 lbs
Potential Size: 90-100 lbs
House Broken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Some
Living With: Foster
History: Surrender

​​Good with Kids: Older Only (16 & up)
Good with Cats: Unknown
Other Dogs OK: With proper introductions


Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Chevy along with his siblings Jordan and Charlie are the pups of a purebred white female GSD and dad is a white GSD/Lab mix. Both parents are very friendly. Sadly these pups have been living in a barn so they are not use to the normal day to day sights and sounds. While they are frightened when experiencing new things, they remain very sweet, they just look for reassurance from their people. Yes they have a lot to learn and they need to become comfortable with their surroundings, but being in a home with guidance and love will help them tremendously. Training of course will help them build their confidence and teach them to be good canine citizens.

Please remember that puppies are a lot of work, they need a lot of attention and a watchful eye. They will get into things, chew things and have accidents in the house, so please be sure that you have the time and patience and are able to make a commitment for the next 12-14 years.

UPDATE: Chevy is a handsome white German shepherd and yellow lab mix who loves people. For an 8-9 month old puppy who is still growing and learning to appreciate the comforts of a loving indoor home, as long as you walk him 1-2 times a day, he is surprisingly mellow inside the house and takes a long morning and afternoon nap. He loves to cuddle and loves belly rubs if you're offering but will otherwise just follow you around and typically lay at your feet or close by. His favorite thing to chew is antlers but err on the side of caution and keep your shoes in the closet until he outgrows being a puppy! He loves to play fetch; squeaky tennis balls thrown with the "Chuckit!" ball launcher might be his favorite. He is a quick and eager learner; he heels when walking, sits when you stop (while walking), responds correctly to "sit", "down", "paw" and has been taught to stay in a "down" position beside the stairs (in sight but approx 10 ft away) when we meet anyone at the door. He is house trained and sleeps quietly through the night until you wake up. He has quickly deduced that food comes from the kitchen but will wait patiently outside the kitchen if you are in there and does not beg for food. He likes car rides. He is slowly getting better with separation anxiety but for the moment, while he is happy to be in his crate while anyone is home, he prefers to be a puppy-proof room when he's alone. While Chevy warms up to people almost instantly and gently seeks them out (sometimes slightly leaning in to them for a pet but never charging, jumping up or licking anyone), he does not seek out the attention of small children and can be uneasy around them. The perfect home for Chevy would have owners that like to walk/run/hike at least once a day, love to play fetch, love a constant companion/shadow whether they are inside or working in the yard and are home more often than not.

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.

UPDATE: 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.

UPDATE: 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.

UPDATE: 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!

Excaliber
Camera Click here for more pictures

 

DESCRIPTION: Excalibur is a large, handsome and energetic boy. It is obvious that no one has spent anytime teaching him manners, nor did they do any type of training. He is excitable which causes him to jump up, due to his size we feel he would not do well sharing his home with small children. Training is an absolute must, as this will help him learn good manners and will also help with the bonding process. A person who will offer him guidance, lots of exercise and on going training would best suit his needs. He is very friendly with people, but may be too high energy for some. He is good with large dogs, but would prefer to not share his home with small dogs or cats.

Hemlock

DESCRIPTION: Hemlock was very much loved by his family but his owner was deployed and his family looked to MAGSR to find Hemlock a loving and caring home. He is a beautiful boy who is very friendly with everyone he meets. He loves to play fetch, Frisbee and loves to cuddle. He has carpus valgus in his left front joint. It has been established that this condition most commonly occurs in rapidly growing medium to large breed dogs. Some evidence suggests male puppies are more likely to be affected by this condition. This condition does not stop Hemlock from running and playing and having fun. If you can provide this handsome boy a loving home please ask to meet Hemlock today.

Luke
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: This sweet, loving, senior boy who devoted his life to his previous family was repaid for those years with being dumped at a shelter.  Why, because they no longer had the time for him.  The condition he arrived in our care showed that this family never had time for him, his nails were so over grown that he had a very difficult time walking, his beautiful long coat was dirty and matted and he had a skin infection.  Well his life has changed for the better, he is now in a loving foster home living the life he so deserves.  

Luke bonds quickly with his people, he is getting around well after his much needed nail clip and has a nice pep in his step for a senior.  He has been examined by the vet and is being treated for the skin infection.  Seniors are wonderful, they have so much love and kindness to give.  Please don't let Luke's age deter you, he deserves a true family to call his own and to spend his senior years with.

UPDATE: Luke is settling in nicely to his foster home.  He's getting stronger every day in MAGSR's care and when he walks, he's almost prancing around and seems so happy.  He likes to play with toys, play catch with his ball, and is becoming more active.  If you're looking for a companion and would consider one who has lived a little, please consider this senior boy who still has a lot to give.

UPDATE: Luke's foster mom took Luke in thinking she would be getting an old guy that really couldn't do much, but she has been very surprised.  MAGSR was told Luke is 12 yrs old, but his foster mom think he's a few years younger than that.  While Luke may not be for someone who wants to hike 10 miles or someone who wants a dog to run or jog with, Luke is now taking several walks a day and can easily walk 1/2 mile without difficulty. Luke is very affectionate and loves all attention he gets. Luke would make someone with a quiet lifestyle a great dog and companion.  Please schedule an appointment to meet Luke!

Sam
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: A neighbor found Sam tied to a tree after his family moved away and left him.  Thankfully this good samaritan found him, had him seen by a vet then reached out to us to find Sam the home and family he deserves.  Sam is somewhat skittish and needs a little time to be comfortable when meeting new people.  Once he trusts you he becomes relaxed, enjoying walks and playtime.  He will of course need his family to commit to training with him, this will help Sam become more socialized, build his confidence, learn all that he needs to know and of course create a strong bond with his family.  Sam needs some work so please be sure you are able to devote the time that is required to help Sam move forward.

Update: Sam has spent the last few months in a board and train program.  Sam came to us having not been well socialized, lacking confidence and fearful.  The trainers have brought him a long way, but it is an ongoing process.  Sam will require an experienced and knowledgeable GSD handler.  It is also required that his new person continues with his training in order for Sam to continue on the right path.   Sam does bond with his handler, but requires time to accept new people.  If you are interested in Sam it is required that you meet him and follow the directions of his trainers at K9-Koncepts http://www.k9koncepts.com to ensure a good fit for all.  If you would like more information on Sam we can put you in touch with his trainers.

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 was returned to us as his family felt that they could not provide the stimulation and training that he needs due to lifestyle changes in their home after he was adopted. He is a large, energetic, exuberant boy that needs mental and physical stimulation. He requires daily rigourous exercise to help him relax and he would make a great running partner. He will not be placed in a home with small children. He is a good looking boy. But please consider his needs first and foremost as he will not be happy in a household where he is expected to be a couch potato. His family will need to commit to obedience training and exercise and Sampson would be best suited with an experienced handler.

Sherlock
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: ​ ​ Sherlock initially came to MAGSR, due to his owner’s health, from a home with other Shepherds and got along well with them. Over the last 18 months, Sherlock has been in a home without other dogs and has not interacted with other dogs, so it is unknown if he is still good with other dogs. Sherlock has a high prey drive and will chase rabbits and squirrels. Sherlock is friendly with the humans that he meets and is very active with a ton of energy, much more than expected for his age. Sherlock enjoys playing catch and swimming. Sherlock needs training, a strong handler (he’s a strong boy), and a strict regimen.

Over the last several months, MAGSR has treated Sherlock for a perianal fistula, of which treatment is coming to a close. Also, over the last several months, Sherlock has been receiving weekly laser treatments on his hips for severe arthritis. His arthritis has not slowed this boy down at all, but the laser treatments have helped him to be more comfortable so he can continue to play. Continuing future laser treatments, while they may be bi-weekly or only monthly, will be key in providing Sherlock continued relief from his arthritis and comfort going forward.

Sherlock is waiting to meet his fur-ever family that will commit to his needs for his lifetime. Please set up an appointment to meet Sherlock if he sounds like a good match for your family.
