DESCRIPTION:

Archie came to us after being confiscated for cruelty.  Witnesses saw his former owner beating him with a metal baton and the police were called.  Archie sustained trauma to his head, which left an open wound to his head along with a fractured frontal sinus cavity.  He also has fractured teeth which are being extracted.  There were old scars possibly from earlier abuse.  Archie received immediate medical treatment for his injuries. Although Archie is a mix breed we could not leave him behind.  We welcomed him into MAGSR with open arms as an honorary GSD.  Archie is currently residing in medical care under the watchful eyes of vets.  So far they have seen no deficits, and he seems to have recovered both physically and mentally from traumatic event. Archie is a fun, friendly, high energize boy.  He loves to romp around and play a good game of fetch.  He will require a family that can match his energy level in order for him to receive the exercise he will need.  Archie is needing a family that will treat him with kindness, that will provide him with a safe and stable home, lots of love and care.

 

Update:

Archie is settling right in to his foster home. The x-rays of Archie's head came back all clear and no deficits were noted from the beating. Archie had a number of teeth extracted that were fractured and not good - the vet said they had to be causing him pain. Archie loves his toys and balls and just loves for his humans to throw the balls so he can fetch and bring it back to them to throw again. He especially loves tennis balls and squeaky balls. Even though Archie was in an unhealthy relationship with his prior owner, he has bounced back and is happy, healthy, friendly & affectionate, bouncy, playful and full of tail wags. Archie is ready to meet his new fur-ever family - is that you?

DESCRIPTION:

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.

Update:

The GA 38 arrived in MAGSR’s care in early/mid January 2019 and over the past two months, their transformation has been nothing short of amazing. These 38 broken souls knew nothing but a life of filth, hunger, and abuse. Their eyes were filled with the look of fear, emptiness and uncertainty. They cowered in the corners of their runs and tried to be as far away from humans as possible and MAGSR volunteers knew they had quite a challenge ahead to right the wrongs of their past prior to arriving in MAGSR's care. MAGSR volunteers stepped up & took on the challenge head on. And now, two months later, through the endless work of dedicated volunteers that have selflessly given their time, patience and love, these beautiful creatures have begun to meet us with tail wags, lean-ins as we walk with them, and most importantly, where once there was emptiness and fear in their eyes, it’s clear those memories have been replaced with hope and even a bit of curiosity. Their wounds have healed, their bellies are full and they have learned that all humans aren’t so bad. They are greeting us at the front of their kennel runs now eager for treats and walks. All of them have learned to walk on a leash and we are beginning some basic obedience with them such as "sit", "heel" and “watch me.” They are now used to being handled regularly for normal things such as baths, getting their weights taken, and taking their monthly preventatives. Best of all, volunteers are seeing their unique personalities and social side come out with other dogs. Just a few months ago, they were all fighting for the same food and water and ability to stay alive but today, many have completely let down their guard and are comfortable enough to engage in play and/or positively interact with other dogs. All  of these dogs have shown us how intelligent and resilient they are and have made significant strides in their road of rehabilitation. They are ready for the next chapter of their journey and we hope you may be part of  their story.


Update:

Ayayu has been our newest foster for a little over a week now. We are an experienced foster home and our adult dogs are experienced and well socialized. Because of this, we felt that Ayayu would benefit from being with us and our pack. As we had expected and hoped for, we are happy to report that we have seen wonderful emotional growth in her.

Backstory: She, like many of the dogs from the Georgia 38, was not well socialized with people. However, they were socialized with other dogs. She is fairly shy around people and when faced with situations which are of concern to her, she will retreat or go into flight mode. This fearful/flight mode cannot be overstated enough. People that may be interested in her will need to understand her fearful nature. We expect that given time, she will overcome some of this. But it’s possible that she might always be one to flee if confronted with a situation that is scary to her. Her adopter will need to be understand that adopting is not only a lifetime commitment but also a commitment to her life, meaning keeping her safe at all times so that she is not allowed to escape and become lost or even worse.

Fastforward: Since arriving in our home, she is learning all about normal life experiences, sounds, routines, expectations, etc. She’s learning about things like going up and down steps, ringing telephones, TVs, microwaves, vacuum cleaners, just to name a few. She has also learned about routines such as potty time while on leash, when it’s time to go into her crate if we need to leave the house or for her breakfast and dinner. She is also getting her teeth brushed. Her daily life has not been all about the boring and mundane day to day activities. She is also learning (and enjoying) fun things. She is discovering toys and realized she likes people food such as popcorn, Cheez-It’s , etc. She has also discovered the comfort of a nice plush doggie bed and is frequently seen lying on one of many. This past weekend, she got to relax and enjoy the puppy pool and the bigger human pool and we were very proud of her. Ayayu LOVES other dogs and will show her playful side with dogs who will engage in play. Though our adult dogs do not roughhouse, she still loves them and always seeks to be around them. She is starting to seek out attention from us as well and not hide away as much as previously seen. Because she loves other dogs, she gets a lot of her confidence from being around confident dogs by seeing how they go about daily life. Because of this, she must be adopted into a home with a confident, well socialized dog so that she can continue to improve and grow.

Her adoptive home will need to be structured, not chaotic and her adopters will really need to understand a flight risk dog and the potential challenges that come with having one in their home.

DESCRIPTION:

Bailey was surrendered as her family had no time for her and it shows in her lack training and manners. She is such a beautiful, friendly girl that just needs a family to teach her good canine manners. A good training program will teach her jumping up is not acceptable and will also help with her leash skills. Given the opportunity, Bailey will crawl up into her human's lap for loving - she's very sweet. Bailey has some energy to burn that ong walks and a good a game of fetch will help with. Exercising both the body and brain will be very beneficial for her.

Update:

Cessna has been in her foster home for almost a week, and has surprised her foster family with how quickly she has adjusted to her new environment. She has never been in a house before, so at first, the crate, stairs, TV, refrigerator, microwave, drawers, bags etc were all new things to be wary of. Surprisingly, after only a few repeat introductions to these things, Cessna has quickly gotten comfortable around them. She is taking to crate training well, and snoozes in the crate for our 8 hour work day and does well in the crate at night. She has had no accidents in the house or crate and waits until she goes on a walk to go potty. Cessna has also done well with our two cats. She is curious about them, but does not chase and largely ignores them. She is currently making great progress learning "sit" and "come" commands. While Cessna isn't quite sure what to do with herself in the house, when we take her on walks she is in her element. She is an awesome walking companion. She walks in a near perfect heel position, no pulling, takes correction well and is such a fast learner! She is not reactive to other dogs, bikes, or runners we pass in the park. Her favorite thing is to run through the leaves and sniff everything! Cessna would make someone a great walking, hiking or running partner! Like all the Georgia dogs, Cessna has never been in a home or around a loving family. Even so, she readily accepts pets and even runs up to her foster parents to say hi. She has already come a long way and will need owners who will give her time to adjust, lots of love, and the structure and training to help her know how to navigate her new world as a good canine citizen.

DESCRIPTION:

Grace came to us from a shelter we have no history on her.  Since arriving in our care she has been friendly, she rides well in the car and did well at her vet visit.  She previously lived wth another GSD.  She of course needs training, which help her learn good behavior and manners.  Grace is heartworm positive, this could have been avoided had she been kept on monthly heartworm preventatives.  Grace is in the beginning stages of her heartworm treatment, which of course MAGSR is paying for her entire treatment.  She will have to take it slow for the next few months while undergoes treatment, so lots of rest is in order.

Update:

Grace has completed her heartworm treatment and is now heartworm free. Once Grace bonds with her human and gets comfortable, she becomes protective of her space. This can be easily managed by putting her away in a secure room and/or crate when people come to the home. She will also benefit from a strong leader, who has prior experience with the breed, and who will provide appropriate correction and training. Grace will not meet families with children under the age of 16. Grace is very excited to be able to run and play just like any other dog once again. Now she’s even more interested in finding her forever home and family to share her love with. Could that be your family?


Update:

Miss Grace is just as beautiful, sweet, bouncy, and eager-to-please a dog as you could ask to meet. She’s doing wonderfully in her foster home, crates beautifully, does great out and about in the car and in public places, loves her foster siblings, and bonds tightly to her person. She’s been going to training just about every Saturday for months and has developed very nice obedience – she knows her basic commands, and she is great at staying where she’s been put in a sit or a down and won’t move – well except for her tail which is pretty much always wagging! Grace is protective of her space with people she doesn’t know, and needs consistent handling and proper introductions, but once she warms up to someone, Grace’s wonderfully upbeat and happy personality shines right through – with her bushy happy tail “always on!” Please ask to learn more about Grace if you think she might be a good match for your family.

Update:

Luther is settling in to his experienced foster home. Luther, like the other GA38 dogs, is not well socialized with people. Luther remains very anxious about anything new in his environment. Although he is no longer scared of the resident dogs, he rarely interacts with them and is fearful of the activity. Luther feels most safe in his crate – it is his “security blanket” and prefers to spend a good bit of time in there. He allows humans to interact with and touch him, but is nervous about it. Luther has not yet felt confident enough to voluntarily approach humans to interact, but hopefully, that will come in time. Luther is considered a high flight risk dog. Luther has had some field trips to a local group training class which is helping him to work on his confidence. Luther would do best in a quiet home with a consistent routine, preferably with a high fenced yard, no children and not a lot of activity. If Luther sounds like he may be a fit for your home, ask to meet him.


Update:

Luther has settled in to his foster home. In the beginning, Luther was very scared of absolutely everything, even the other dogs in the home. Luther has made some progress now in that he watches as the resident dogs carry on and play. He has gained some trust in his foster home as he will now let her walk up to him without being too fearful. His foster mom speaks softly to him and Luther seems to respond well to that. Luther is looking for a low key and quiet home for his fur-ever home. If your home could be a good match for what Luther needs, please ask to meet him.

DESCRIPTION:

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.

Update:

The GA 38 arrived in MAGSR’s care in early/mid January 2019 and over the past two months, their transformation has been nothing short of amazing. These 38 broken souls knew nothing but a life of filth, hunger, and abuse. Their eyes were filled with the look of fear, emptiness and uncertainty. They cowered in the corners of their runs and tried to be as far away from humans as possible and MAGSR volunteers knew they had quite a challenge ahead to right the wrongs of their past prior to arriving in MAGSR's care. MAGSR volunteers stepped up & took on the challenge head on. And now, two months later, through the endless work of dedicated volunteers that have selflessly given their time, patience and love, these beautiful creatures have begun to meet us with tail wags, lean-ins as we walk with them, and most importantly, where once there was emptiness and fear in their eyes, it’s clear those memories have been replaced with hope and even a bit of curiosity. Their wounds have healed, their bellies are full and they have learned that all humans aren’t so bad. They are greeting us at the front of their kennel runs now eager for treats and walks. All of them have learned to walk on a leash and we are beginning some basic obedience with them such as "sit", "heel" and “watch me.” They are now used to being handled regularly for normal things such as baths, getting their weights taken, and taking their monthly preventatives. Best of all, volunteers are seeing their unique personalities and social side come out with other dogs. Just a few months ago, they were all fighting for the same food and water and ability to stay alive but today, many have completely let down their guard and are comfortable enough to engage in play and/or positively interact with other dogs. All  of these dogs have shown us how intelligent and resilient they are and have made significant strides in their road of rehabilitation. They are ready for the next chapter of their journey and we hope you may be part of  their story.


Update:

My foster mom and dad told me that it’s time for me to do some bragging. I’m not entirely sure what that means but I’m going to give it a try. A couple of weeks ago, a MAGSR volunteer told me I was a lucky girl because I was heading into a foster home. I wasn’t so sure that that sounded like a good idea but, wow was I wrong. My foster family has furry siblings of the big and small variety. The kitties are incredibly bossy but, I know they just want to make sure I understand the rules. I absolutely love the dogs in the household. They make me feel confident and are teaching me the ropes. My favorite dog in the house has even started teaching me how to play! Who knew that living in a home could be so much fun? I’m told that I am crate trained at this point and that I am making huge progress with this thing called housebreaking. It took me a few weeks to get the hang of the living in a household; however, I’m a pro at the stairs at this point and I’m getting really good at going in and out of doors. Most household sounds are becoming second nature with fewer and fewer things causing me to jump. Although I am still getting a little nervous in the neighborhood, especially when kids are running around, my foster family says I am doing really well. I tend to stay really close to my handler and only pull when I have a small freak out. They tell me that typically those things happen when new items or unknown people are encountered. There are just so many new things to adjust to. My foster family says that all my progress means that it’s time to start learning some commands. I’m not sure what that entails, but I let you know how it goes.

Embedded thumbnail for Riana-MAGSR-2019
DESCRIPTION:

Riana came to us after being confiscated in a cruelty case. Another dog in the home was seen being beaten with a metal baton and the police were called. We do not know if Riana was abused, but she does have recently fractured teeth and had a cut under her eye. She is undergoing a complete exam by one of our vets and will have the fractured teeth extracted if necessary.  

She has been in a foster home for a few days now and she settled right in. She is a happy, friendly girl who enjoys the company of other dogs. Riana deserves a family that will treat her with kindness, provide her with love, structure and proper care.

Update:

Riana is settling right in to her foster home. Riana had a number of teeth extracted that were fractured and not good. Riana loves to play and romp around with the resident dogs. Even though Riana was in an unhealthy relationship with her prior owner, she has bounced back and is happy, healthy, friendly & affectionate, bouncy, playful and full of tail wags. Riana is ready to meet her new fur-ever family - is that you?


Update:

Riana is proving every day to her foster parents how excellent and perfect she is. She is potty trained, crate trained, sits for attention, walks like a dream on the leash and is incredibly loving and snuggly. She is a dog who wants to please and could fit in with a wide variety of families. Riana does great with the resident dog(s) and matches in energy level and play style. She’s good in the car and in public places and is the perfect lady. Riana is living with a cat and is curious and a little confused. Riana is the sweetest girl and is looking for her fur-ever home. If your home may be a match for her, ask to meet her.

Update:

Tayson has been in a home for the first time in her life for a week now. She is very well behaved in her sturdy, heavy duty crate (she didn’t like the wire crates at all, and easily escaped from them). She is calm and steady in the crate, and has had no accidents in it. Crate training is the first step towards housebreaking, and Tayson seems to be crate-trained at this point. After a week, she is comfortable around her foster mom, but still nervous and fearful when others are around. She gets along well with the resident older female GSD, and seems to take comfort from having another dog nearby. Tayson is walking well on a leash, although she will pull when fearful and trying to move away from something she doesn’t understand or isn’t familiar with; most of the time, however, she is happy to walk along side her foster mom on a loose metal leash. She prefers to eat inside of her crate, especially when no one is watching. She’s had so many new experiences in her first week in a home, and has handled all of them so well and with grace. She is a kind sweet dog who wants to be with people, but is still fearful of too much stimulus and contact at one time. As Tayson gains in confidence and comfort, we are certain that she will continue to make progress, learning to trust and bond with her humans. Stay tuned for future updates of Tayson’s journey to becoming a wonderful future family member. If she sounds like a fit for your family, ask to meet her.
