AmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmber
DESCRIPTION:

Amber was surrendered to us as she was not getting along with the other resident female dog.  Amber likes to be the alpha, so she would do better with a non dominant dog.  She has been around children and did well.  She also did well with a visiting a larger laid back dog, although she does play rough.  As you can imagine her world as she knew it has been turned upside down.  We are giving her time to settle in so that we can get to know her better.

Update:

Amber is a well mannered girl who does well walking on a leash or just sitting at your feet. Regardless of what you're doing, she is happy, so long as she with you. She is a serious pup, that is reserved around strangers. Once you've earned her trust she's a very warm and loving dog. Amber isn't the dog that's going to jump and bark to show her affection. She's the dog that walks up, rubs up against your leg, then sits down and leans on you to accept your calm affection. Amber can sit and stay, but is still working on down. This is a very well mannered lady that will make someone a wonderful companion!

DESCRIPTION:

Astro came to us an owner surrender.  This is a perfect example why you do not get a child a dog and expect them to be the caregiver.  The child, after 3 weeks no longer was interested in caring for him, even though he promised he would.  The parent did not have time, nor the knowledge to care for a GSD puppy.  Astro did not have training and was doing your typical puppy behaviors...chewing, jumping, nipping.  Without structure, guidance and training to teach good manners his puppy behaviors continued as no one taught him otherwise.  Astro is now in the care of a loving foster learning acceptable behaviors, good manners, getting lots of exercise and structure.  Astro is a sweet boy, he will need a family to continue to provide him with training and structure, along with positive reinforcement.

DESCRIPTION:

Autumn cannot be any cuter and is absolutely a great little girl, happy go lucky and loves to give puppy kisses.  Autumn has a lot to learn about going a good canine citizen and will require training.  Please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family - puppies are a ten to twelve year commitment.  Puppies are full of energy and can be mischievous – they will whine, have accidents, get into things, and chew on inappropriate things.  With time, patience, guidance and training, Autumn will become even more of an amazing girl than she already is.  Please inquire if Autumn sounds like a good match for your family.

Update:

Autumn is a loving, fiesty, high energy puppy.  She's getting along great with her foster brothers and sister.  She enjoys squeaky toys, kongs, nylabones, tennis shoe inserts, tennis shoe strings, charging cords - did we mention she was a puppy?  She is learning "no" quickly, sits nicely for treats and settles after minimal protest in the crate for the night.  With the proper training that every dog needs, she's going to make someone a wonderful companion!

Glory
GloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGloryGlory
DESCRIPTION:

Glory came to us from a shelter so we have no history on her.  Since arriving in our care she has been friendly.  She previously lived wth another GSD.  She of course needs training, which help her learn good behavior and manners.  Glory is adjusting to living in a foster home, watch for updates.

Update:

Unfortunately, Glory tested heartworm positive when seen by MAGSR's vet. This could have been avoided had she been kept on monthly heartworm preventatives.  Glory is in the beginning stages of her heartworm treatment, which of course MAGSR will pay for her entire treatment.  She will have to take it slow for the next few months while undergoes treatment, so lots of rest will be in order.

Update 8/9/18: Glory has started her heartworm treatment and is doing pretty well adjusting to the activity restrictions she needs to finish getting better. Glory is so sweet and loving to the volunteers who come to the kennel to get her out for some fresh air.  She is working on her sits, downs and stays and she takes treats gently. Glory would love to have someone to help her through the rest of her treatment and love her fur-ever - could that someone be you?

DESCRIPTION:

Happy birthday Jackson! Today was Jackson's special day and we are
doing everything we can to celebrate his life.
Jackson came to MAGSR after he was surrendered to a shelter. We are
still learning about him. But here is what we know so far. Stay tuned
for updates.
He appears to have been neglected as he is very thin. However, he is
interested in his food when his people are with him. He is incredibly
sweet and is such a mild mannered boy. He is very quiet but is
inquisitive about everything that is new to him. He is very curious
about other dogs. Yet is respectful of them and has shown the desire
to play with dogs that are respectful of him. Jackson does not seem to
know what toys are about which is very sad. But he is  happy to hang
out, relax and enjoy head scratches and belly rubs. He stresses during
car rides and does not stay in one place. But remains quiet
throughout. Today, he was at peace lying on the grass, decompressing
as he was watching the squirrels in the trees after all the changes he
has been through. He will need a family that is patient, consistent
and empathetic for what he may have experienced in his life previous
to MAGSR. However, he walks well on leash and is happy to go where you
want to explore. He will thrive with someone to show him all the world
has to offer. At the present time, he doesn't appear to be a lap dog
but at the same time, is a dog who is looking for someone to bond
with.

Kenya Profile PicKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenya
DESCRIPTION:

Kenya was adopted from our rescue when she was just a puppy in 2006.  Sadly her adopter, due to personal reasons, is no longer able to care for her.  As you can imagine Kenya's world as she knew it has been turned upside down.  She is currently in a loving foster home with her foster family helping her with the adjustment. She is anxious , eating very little and obviously does not understand what is going on or where her family is. 

Don't try to tell this senior to slow down; Kenya is quite athletic and runs and plays just fine, thank you very much!  Kenya loves to go for car rides and long walks with her foster family, as well as snuggling up for head rubs.  She has settled into her foster home nicely, also enjoying naps on her dog bed, hanging out with her foster siblings, and taking her chew bones wherever she goes.  This affectionate lady walks well on leash and knows her basic commands.  If you would like to meet Kenya, please contact our Adoptions Coordinator for more information.

DESCRIPTION:

Kovu has not had much stability in his life, he has had 3 families before coming into our care.  His last person realized that he needed more than she could provide in the way of training and knew that he needed an experienced family to help him adjust to a new life.  Kovu has not been well socialized or provided with proper training.  He can be protective of his person if he feels you are not in control.  He will bark at people he doesn't know, but takes correction and redirection well.  He needs slower introductions to new people, dogs and situations in order for him to feel comfortable.  Training is an absolute must for Kovu and his new family as this will help everyone learn more about Kovu and get him on the right track.  Kovu will only meet those with a lot of experience with the breed and are strong, knowledgeable handlers.  Kovu needs someone who is going to commit to him, provide him with direction and consistency in his life.  Our volunteers are working with him, he learns quickly.

Update:

Kovu has settled into his foster home. Kovu has become affectionate and attentive to his foster dad. Unfortunately, Kovu was inexperienced, untrained and poorly socialized when arriving into MAGSR’s care. Kovu is anxious when meeting new people and needs a handler that understands this to ensure slow introductions with treats. Kovu has a high food drive and responds well to training in obedience with food rewards. Kovu has been confident learning new things and being placed in new situations. Poor Kovu must never have had toys before because he has discovered toys in his foster home – balls, tug ropes, etc.and has a fairly strong ball drive. Kovu is respectful in the home when not crated and is housebroken; however he likes to counter surf at times, and has a special interest in used paper towels. Kovu would do well in a quiet home without young kids or other pets. If Kovu sounds like he could be a match for your family, and you have experience with GSDs, please ask to meet him today.

RexRexRexRexRexRexRexOsoOsoOso
DESCRIPTION:

Oso a very handsome, big boy weighing in at 105 lbs.  Although he is large, he is a gentle giant.  Oso's favorite activity is to play with balls, the more balls the better, yes even soccer and basketball size balls.  It is imperative that all dogs go through obedience training and Oso is not exception.  With a dog of this size you want to have good manners, this will make walking him on a leash much more enjoyable. 

Unfortunately Oso was returned to us.  Family members moved into his home, after he had lived there over a year, with small dogs that Oso did not get along with, so he got the boot.  He was fine with the neighbors female GSD.  He came back to us over weight so he has been put on diet, that along with exercise he should be down a good weight in no time.  

Update:

Oso sure does LOVE balls, all sizes, squeaky and otherwise, this boy goes nuts for them!  He's a very calm, loving sweetheart who will be a great companion on walks or just hanging around.  He's easy on the leash, takes treats gently, sits nicely for brushing and knows basic commands.  A training class will help with bonding to this honey of a dog, once complete you will have a wonderful friend.  Just look at that smile, with his size and demeanor, he's sure to impress!

DESCRIPTION:

Rocky was an owner surrender as his person had no time for him.  It is so important when taking on the responsibility of a pet that you have the time and patience to work with.  Rocky is a 6 month old untrained big puppy.  He was not taught any manners, nor were his puppy behaviors addressed.  He will jump on people, he is mouthy, will chew things he shouldn't and have accidents in the house.  He is in need a good training program and a family that will teach him acceptable behavior.  Socializing him with lots of people and other dogs is critical, as it is with all dogs.  Due to his lack of manners we will not place him in a home with very young children.  He will need a strong leader who is willing to work with him and burn off his high puppy energy.  Prior puppy GSD experience is required.

DESCRIPTION:

Hi  friends, my name is Sarge and I am interviewing prosepctive forever families. Let me explain my situation and get you up to speed. I managed to get myself in quite a pickle as I landed myself in local  shelter as a stray. I am not really sure what a stray is but I will figure that out later.  The accommodations were not bad. They were really nice to me and I did get a warm bed and two squares a day! It was kind of rough though because I was use to em... certain luxeries. I was at this place for about a month when they told me my foster family was coming to pick me up and bring me home! They are amazing and I am really living it up here wth them but foster mean temporary until my perfect home presents itself. They told me I can stay as long as I need to which makes me so happy. I even heard them say they were taking me to acupuncture this weekend so I am hoping that is some sort of massage and they provide treats! I will update later on how that goes.. So dont worry, I am in a good place as I interview

So back to my requirements.. you know a senior gentleman has certain needs and things we become accustomed to. I like a soft orthopedic bed with a blanky, I demand regular head and belly scratches, and daily treats. And let's be clear, I DONT enjoy steps and can only get up or down one or two steps because I sustained a bad pelvic injury in my younger days that never healed correctly so I only get around on three legs. My back leg is pretty useless although it does help to steady me when begging at the table... I have learned to compensate for my injury and do still enjoy playing and romping in the yard. My new family will need to provide some pain meds and supplements to help keep me as pain free as possible. Here is a positive.. I am totally house broken but do require to be let out every few hours as in my old age I just can't hold it as long as when I was a young buck.. My favorite past time aside from eating is sleeping because don't forget I am a senior boy and require several naps.. I am the most laid back guy that you will ever meet! I like my doggie friends big and small! I am just an all around great companion and just want a person to call my own. I will follow you around and lay at your feet! If you feel you could be my forever family and provide for my senior needs please apply above! Love Sarge

DESCRIPTION:

Sawyer came to us an owner surrender.  In his previous home he lived with young children, unfortunately one of the children is autistic and he was not treating Sawyer kindly.  Sawyer would growl, then get up and move away.  This was not fair to Sawyer so the family felt it was best for Sawyer to find a new home where he would be treated kindly.  He is a handsome long hair boy, his coat does need some care and a good grooming.  His foster mom has been working on getting the matts out and Sawyer will be having a spa day.  He has made himself at home in his foster home, he's a very nice boy.

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Strax found himself in a shelter when his family dumped him there.  The shelter staff love him very much and took very good care of him.  Strax has some skin issues which we are having looked into by a vet.  We are not sure if it's allergies to food, environmental or if it's something else.  His food has been changed to a grain free and he's on fish oil, it will take some time to see if this helps.  Strax lived with children in his previous home, he was cat tested at the shelter and he did well so he may be able to live in a home with cats.  He is such a well mannered, even keeled boy.  He takes everything in stride, welcomes all people he meets and will play bow when introduced to other dogs.  Strax seems to be an overall well balanced boy who would fit well into anyone's life.
