One of the largest puppy mill busts found hundreds of German Shepherd's living in absolute filth and in horrendous condition.  Ankle deep mud and feces mixed with urine, no adequate shelter, lacking food and clean water is how these dogs were left to live, many for years.  The urgent call was made and MAGSR knew we had to take in as many as possible.  We now have 38 dogs that have a multitude of medical needs that we are addressing, and they need to learn to trust humans.  All dogs are scared, some are shut down, but our volunteers and vets will get them on their road to recovery.  It will be awhile before these dogs are ready for adoption, so please be patient and watch for updates. 

An undertaking of this size for an all-volunteer rescue is quite a task, but one we are meeting it head on.  Many of the dogs require medical boarding so that they can receive the best possible care.  We are committed to providing everything they need, not only medically, but emotionally.  Our medical costs are going to be at an amount we have never seen before.  We need your help, the dogs need your help.  Please donate , your donation will go towards their ongoing care, medical needs, emotional needs and help them on their road to recovery and a brighter future.


Bastille is making daily strides. She is still a shy girl and you have to make slow movements with her as she still spooks easily. She remains a flight risk and must remain on a leash at all times even in the home. She is doing much better going in to a crate and once in sleeps quietly for at least 9 hours at night. She has not had any accidents in her crate and is doing well house breaking. She can go about 9 hours a typical work day and not have an accident. We are working diligently on her leash manners and she is responding very well. She really enjoys walks and is starting to open up and sneak some kisses and meet you with tail wags. She is initiating play with other dogs in the home and is overall a very sweet girl. We are beginning on some basic obedience commands. Lastly, Bastille is treat motivated, gentle in taking them and absolutely loves marrow bones and peanut butter. She has shown no signs of food aggression. If interested in this stunning girl, please contact us to meet her.


Through no fault of her own Bastille was returned back to MAGSR, her family loved her but their busy household caused her a lot of anxiety and they felt this was no longer fair to her.

Bastille would do great in a less busy home with a stable dog to help calm her anxiety.
