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.

ArielArielArielArielArielArielArielArielAriel
DESCRIPTION:

Ariel came to us from a not so good situation.  She was used as a breeding dog, she was not provided with proper care or adequate living conditions.  Thankfully after complaints and an investigation she, along with other dogs were confiscated.  Ariel is now in our care where she is looking for a family that will provide her with a loving and warm home, where she means more to his family than just a breeder dog.

Update:

Ariel is doing very well in her foster home. Her foster parents are discovering that she is a very timid but loving young pup. At home, she's a loving, cuddly, sweet girl, but is timid when meeting new people. Ariel is learning from the resident dogs in the foster home, as many dogs do. When away from other dogs, Ariel becomes very anxious and fearful – therefore, we feel she would do best in a home with another dog, similar in size, to help teach her as well as help to calm her anxious and timid behavior. As Ariel was kept in a shelter for 8 months before coming to MAGSR, she is underweight and has some muscle deterioration which her fosters are working with her to get both back to normal. Ariel has learned her name and some commands such as “no” and “sit”. She is mouthy and sometimes demands attention by running into her humans, so her fosters are working with her on those behaviors. Ariel is a very energetic girl and loves to run and play chase with her foster siblings as long as they are allowed. She will need an active home, with a strong leader, who is willing to provide her with the appropriate training and leadership required for the breed. Are you willing to tame the wild child to see the beauty she can be? If so, ask to meet Ariel today.

Update:

Aubrey is settling into his foster home nicely. He is such a sweet and lovable boy! We had tummy and neck rubs after a few days. He is now looking for his foster mom and following her around the house.  He is adjusting well to his surroundings, home noise and some city noises going on his walks several times a day. He's made a lot of progress in a short period of time although it might take some time to overcome his fears.  He is patient and is learning from the resident GSD. At times he is ok with cars, runners, children, dogs passing and then at other times he just needs reassurance that it's ok.  His leash manners are getting better and he needs patience and training to improve. He is comfortable in his crate and considers it his sanctuary during the day and at bedtime. The housebreaking training is coming along just fine and is learning that outside is the place to go.  He is a smart GSD and with time and patience he will shine! He is a sweet boy and is hoping he finds his fur-ever family soon.


Update:

Aubrey is doing great in his foster home. He's enjoying his walks around the neighborhood and the park. Even though he is still wary of sudden movements and loud noises, he is so much better. Aubrey comes to his handers with enthusiasm to get his pinch collar / leash on to go outside and is learning to 'wait' at the door. He's met a few dogs and he is fine, but not always interested. He seems to have a playful personality waiting to come out. He has put his paw on his fur-sibling a few times to test the waters but even though she is a player too, she didn't seem interested but they do run around together at times in playing in the house. Aubrey’s leash manners are getting better and he’s learning to walk nicely on a leash. He’s very comfortable starting out on our walk then pulls on our way home to get home. We have an occasional tail wag and lots of requests for belly rubs. Aubrey is ready for his fur-ever home – could it be with you?


Update:

Every day that Aubrey is with his foster sibling and foster parents, he continues to improve - he never looks back at his former life. Aubrey has learned that humans are not so bad and to trust humans more every day. He is enthusiastic to go on his walks and the regular city noises are no longer too scary. Aubrey is ok with cars passing by, people running past him, children playing nearby and lawnmowers making noise. Aubrey loves his walks and meeting 4 legged furry friends along the way. Aubrey was recently introduced to his foster parents’ 2+ yr old granddaughter while in his crate. He was timid at first and not sure what to make of this little person, but by the time we all went for a walk, he came over to sniff her on his own. Aubrey is attending obedience training classes with his foster sibling. He is doing great so far even though he can't fully participate in all activities (he’s not allowed to be off leash anytime soon), but Aubrey is so smart and wants to please. Aubrey knows how to 'halt' and 'wait' at an intersection, 'ok' and 'heel' to proceed walking. Aubrey’s foster parents are currently working on 'come' and 'sit' and he is responding as well as expected - we can't wait to see his continued success with training. Aubrey is looking for a patient and loving home. This young gentle lad has so much potential and is one of the sweetest GSDs we have encountered. Aubrey will be a wonderful, sweet, and loved member of his forever family. Ask to meet Aubrey!

BoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBo
DESCRIPTION:

Bo came to us from a shelter, so we have no history on him.  He can be picky about his dog friends and may do best as an only dog or with female dogs.  Training of course will go a long way helping Bo settle in, learn some manners and how to properly interact with other dogs.  With people he is very friendly, although we do not know how he is with children at this time. 

Update:

Bo is great dog, and he's doing nicely in foster.  His weight is up to 84lbs from 69lbs a month ago, and he loves to run and is building muscle - he is really looking good.  He has been going to training for a few weeks and is doing very well the class, both with his basic commands and in terms of his confidence and socialization.  He does fine in his crate (although he will start to make a racket sometimes if he feels he's missing out on something!), is house broken, and has acclimated well, and is happy and comfortable with his two older GSD foster siblings.  Bo still has a lot to learn, but overall he's a very sweet and responsive dog, that is progressing well and will make a great addition to the right lucky home, that is ready to provide the care and love that Bo so richly deserves.


Update:

Handsome a sweet Bo was returned to MAGSR thru no fault of his own after his family decided they no longer wanted him. Bo’s prior family never truly committed to him and he spent most of his time in a crate. Bo is an active and friendly boy who needs exercise and continued training, as do most German Shepherds. Bo is ready for a forever family who will truly commit to him, spend time with him and not lock him in a crate and not give him up when he becomes an inconvenience. If interested in meeting this handsome boy, ask to meet Bo today!

CeliaCeliaCeliaCeliaCeliaCeliaCeliaCelia_profileCeliaCeliaCeliaCeliaCeliaCeliaCeliaCeliaCeliaCeliaCeliaCeliaCeliaCeliaCeliaCeliaCeliaCeliaCelia
DESCRIPTION:

Celia found herself in a shelter after found wandering on her own. Her age is estimated at a year old but she could be younger. She is friendly and happy along with being beautiful. While at the shelter she kept her kennel area so she may be housebroken. Life on the run is no way to live, Celia wants the love and care of a family, a comfy bed, toys, exercise, good food and training.

Update:

Hi I'm Celia!  I just love living in a house with comfy beds and chew toys. My foster mom always tells me what a good girl I am and how I have excellent house manners. I'm housebroken, I don't beg at the dinner table or jump on furniture, although I'm sure your bed would be very comfy.  I can be a little timid around new visitors, but give me a treat and pet me and I will be your friend.  I love spending time outside on the deck and going for walk​s, but I could improve my leash skills, although my foster mom tells me I've improved a lot (I'm working on my basic commands too).  Please ask to meet me!! 


Update:

Sweet Celia was returned to MAGSR thru no fault of her own. She lost her dad unexpectedly and her mom was no longer able to care for her and give her the time and exercise she needs. Celia is understandably confused right now and needs to lose a few pounds. Once Celia bonds with her human and gets comfortable, she becomes protective of her humans and 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. Celia would like to find a forever home with a forever family who will commit to her and not give her up. Could that be your family?

DarbyDarbyDarbyDarbyDarbyDarbyDarbyDarby
DESCRIPTION:

Darby came to us as a surrender as his family did not have time for him. Puppies take a lot of time, they need to be potty trained, taught not too chew on things they shouldn't, socialized outside of the family, taught leash manners, provided with lots of exercise and training. They do best when provided with structure and exercise to burn off their puppy energy.  They are a lot of work but well worth the effort if you have the time and are willing to make a commitment for their lifetime. Darby will need all of this, he will have you laughing and at times frustrated but he is very worth it.

Update:

Darby is very affectionate and eager to please. He tends to jump on people looking for attention, but with consistent correction he is learning to adjust this behavior.  He would be very happy as a lap dog, although he will soon outgrow anyone's ability to hold him. Darby needs to build more self-confidence which will happen with socialization and training. He loves the resident female GSD and is so cute following her on her routine walks around the perimeter of the yard. Darby figured out how to open the back door in no time - he is a clever boy and will need someone who can provide mental challenges and keep him from getting bored. He is full of energy and is a joy to have around.

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.

Embedded thumbnail for Grace-MAGSR-2018
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:

Over the last two months, Kaja has had to overcome a lot of changes in terms of her living situation, surroundings, and pack structure. Although significant changes can be difficult for any pup, in Kaja's case, so many things happening at once resulted in a shut down. It was decided that in order to best meet Kaja's needs, she should be moved into a foster home where she would have the benefits of consistency, routine, and leadership. Kaja walked into her foster home a little over a week ago and has never looked back. Thriving on a calm and structured environment, Kaja has begun to emerge from her shell and is acting more like a pup every day. 

At this time, Kaja is crate training and house breaking beautifully. She seems to understand that business is done outside and is keeping her crate clean and dry. When out and about Kaja is learning to ignore cars and trucks in the neighborhood. With little previous experience on leash, Kaja has been a work in progress but has made great strides in a very short period of time. She is still unsure about sirens or sudden loud sounds and will try to run away. Unknown people can also be unnerving as Kaja has not always had positive experiences with people. Continued exposure to people, places, and sounds in a controlled fashion will help Kaja continue to develop the into a well socialized dog. 

Kaja is curious, affectionate, and intelligent. Once comfortable with her people, Kaja enjoys head rubs and neck scratches. She is integrating well with her furry foster siblings and seems to draw confidence from a stable pack. Kaja is looking for a special family that will help her become the impressive dog we know she is destined to be. If Kaja sounds like a good match for your household, please ask about her today.

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.

Update:

Nadja is adjusting to life in a foster home. Normal household sounds make her a little nervous, but she improves each day. She has not had any accidents in the house and holds it during an entire work day as well as through the night. She is most relaxed enjoying sunshine in the backyard with her foster mom. To gain confidence, Nadja goes on frequent walks around the neighborhood. Sirens, loud engines, bike riders, and children playing cause her a bit of anxiety. While outside, she will allow “strangers” to gradually approach and scratch her ears. She is learning to enjoy the attention of caring humans and will offer a kiss and tail wag in exchange for a belly rub. With patience, and a little time, love and training and Nadja will be a great family member.

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:

Sylvan, or Syl as her foster parents call her, has been living in her foster home for a little over a week and has made amazing progress. She was initially uncertain in the house (because she has never been in one before), but she is getting used to the noises and going up and down our many stairs. She has been eating well, been calm in the crate all day and night, and is amazing on her walks. She heels nicely, does not pull at all, and is not reactive to dogs or people in the park. Her current project is learning how to sit on command. She has also had no accidents in the house and holds it during an entire work day and makes it through the whole night, waiting until she goes on her walks. She has also been incredible with the resident cats in the foster home, being very calm and showing no signs of aggression or even interest. What an amazing dog to have come out of that terrible hoarding situation! She will just need a little time, love and training and we are confident she will make someone an awesome pup! Ask to meet Sylvan today!
