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:

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?

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?

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:

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:

Hi my name is Liesel and I wanted to share a little bit about myself. The 1st year of my life, which is supposed to be filled with love, attention, and quality care was instead spent in a filthy pen with little to no food or clean water fending for myself to stay alive.  I bear psychological and physical scars of this 1st impressionable year of my life.  I am easily startled by sudden movements, loud sounds, and people. Currently, I feel safest in my crate or in small enclosed areas like the bathroom, hallway or backseat of the car.  Regardless of where I am, you will never hear a peep out of me.  I am curious about these humans who refer to themselves as my foster parents.  I am most accepting of their presence when they feed me and stroke me gently to let me know it is going to be ok. I have quite the appetite because I was not fed regularly so I’m more than willing to accept food.   My newly found favorite treats are pepperoni, turkey jerky from Aldi, and freeze dried beef liver.

I've never been an indoor dog and am used to relieving myself in my pen, but my foster parents told me I am doing so well with potty-training and are proud I've only had one accident inside.  When outside I walk well on the leash with my foster parents until something unexpectedly spooks me and in my mind, it is fight or flight, at which time I will go to the end of the leash pulling to get away from whatever scared me. Sometimes I hear things going on outside or from the other apartments around me and will get up to investigate causing me to start pacing.  However, once the threat is gone I retreat to my safe place.  My foster parents told me they think I would do best in an environment that is not city-like, where there is less activity and no people coming and going from the complex. Without these distractions I tend to keep to myself and relax where I feel most comfortable.

I am learning the ropes from these two other dogs in the home.  I watch them receive love and attention as they seem so happy to be around the humans, as of now I'm still a little unsure.  For now, I quietly retreat to my safe place where I get fed and have a warm, dry place to sleep.  I sleep through the night in my crate without incident and enjoy the company of the other two dogs as dogs are all I have ever been around.   I like the red thing filled with peanut butter that they call a “Kong.”  I will not chew your valuables or anything I am not supposed to.

I am trying so hard to learn how to just be a dog and not worry that someone or something is going to hurt me.  I am going to take time and patience to learn to trust my surroundings.  The only thing I want is to love and be loved and find a family to call my own.

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 Raina-MAGSR-2019
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:

Raina is settling in to her foster home. She is fine walking outside if she can be sandwiched between her humans but will continue to build confidence and work on her leash walking skills to perfect those to walk in a perfect calm heel. At this time, Raina is scared of many dogs she sees - her foster suspects that she was not treated kindly by some of the other dogs and maybe over time, she’ll settle. Raina loves food and eats beautifully being hand fed. Raina is calming down and coming towards her fosters - she responds well to praise. Raina has been great in the house, calm in her crate, and is even beginning to be playful with her parents - she is just lovely. And, most importantly, out of a wide range of options, she has selected her favorite toy - deer antler. Please ask to meet Raina if she sounds like she could be a good fit for your home.
 


Update:

Raina is a sweetheart and we are thrilled with the progress she has made in a very short amount of time.  She is very smart and observant, and while she learns quickly, she can test new boundaries with equal wit and speed.  In many ways, she is a playful and curious puppy that makes us laugh every day and is wonderful company.  It is impressive how quickly she adjusted to living in a house!  House breaking was easy - she handles a full work day without a hitch (zero accidents). Raina is calm inside her crate and quiet throughout the night.  Raina has not displayed any food aggression and has no issues with her food bowls.  She continues to be quite treat-motivated and is very gentle about getting her reward. Raina is willing to accept any handling, and while not thrilled with her shower, she is cooperative.   She has been passing her open-environment tests with more and more free space in the house and she can spend many hours looking out the patio window without an event.  Her favorite toys are always nearby and when she is done playing/chewing, we often find her napping with her favorite toy as a pillow.  Deer antler is still the absolute favorite!  While she is not quite ready for supervision-free time, it is expected that she can get there soon.  Yummy food on the counter tempts her to try counter surfing and she has confused a couple fabrics for chew toys but responded immediately to gentle correction.  She is also learning to appropriately share toys, treats, and human attention and affection with the resident dog.  Now that she is experiencing the comforts and positive attention she never had before, who can blame her that she gets a bit jealous and sharing is not on top of her priority list.  Earning positive praise is key to success with Raina and she is a very astute student.  While this girl is lovely inside the house, we have been focusing on confidence building outside and are happy to report that she is no longer reacting to cars, trucks, bicycles, and is even learning to be fine with loud trains.  While she prefers calm walks and hikes in the country, she is learning to navigate busy streets too.  Raina continues to be apprehensive about many dogs but responds well to being redirected by a human she trusts.  Trust with people is earned.  As a smaller dog coming from a terrible situation, she has some skittish tendencies, but they ease daily and she has been friendly with every person she has met.  Her leash walking skills are excellent in a calm neighborhood or when hiking in the country, and she is learning not to pull on busy and distracting streets.  We have started on basic obedience training and Raina is getting more consistent with "come" every day.  Raina has been a gem and as her confidence builds she is growing into the spunky pup that she was always destined to be.   Every day, her personality comes out more and we enjoy exploring new things with her.  Ask to meet Raina today!


Update:

My foster mom tells me that I have some fans and I wanted to give this week’s Raina update. I have been having only the best kind of adventures. My walks are the highlight of my day and I’ve become so good at it that I can now be a great jogging partner. I’m told that when I trot, it looks like I am jogging on air. I walked 14 miles on the beach on Saturday and could have gone many more. When we finally reached Rehoboth Beach from the Delaware Seashore Park, it was loud with screaming children, some nice, some not nice dogs, and many distractions. I kept my focus and walked the boardwalk and town making my foster mom proud. I even went to lunch at an outdoor patio with lots of activity and other dogs and sat quietly the whole time. I think I aced the Rehoboth Beach test. I got to hang out on a longer cable lead to watch spring flower planting. I tried my best to help, but I eventually decided it best to just plant myself in the flower bed and observe the process up close.  I am not quite sure what to do with these command things that my foster mom tries, but I have learned to love my name and I now know that “come” means warm pets and an occasional treat bonus.  I definitely like "come."  I keep hearing this word “sit” but I prefer to do that on my own accord for now. I surprised even myself that I liked playing a little dress up with festive neck bows. Those also get me positive attention. I have heard that some dogs take time to learn their house manners, but my record is 100% perfect week after week and I have picked my favorite outdoor spots (right by the fence). My profile says "working on it" for housebreaking, but I think I have this one mastered so we're going to change that to a "yes" and have moved on to working on other things. I used to be so curious about what might be on the kitchen counters that my nose just kept finding itself up there. I don’t think it is my fault AT ALL that the foster dad left roast beef sitting on the edge of counter for so long, but I only got up to look, and did not touch. I wish my foster parents would reconsider their kitchen rules but I learned to respect them. The furniture also needed exploring, but I’ve been so good that all rooms are fully open to me and I can explore with more confidence. My crate is by the window, which I like, and it is my place to relax. I am not a fan of dragging a leash inside the house but my foster mom tells me it is for my protection. Given how great living inside is compared to where I came from, I guess it is a small compromise I can make. I am getting skilled at my road trips and quite used to the car. I have toured state parks, went to a great MAGSR event to see my old GA friends, toured the University of Delaware (inside and out), and mastered the beach. A couple of hours in the car is nothing for a tough girl like me! I am curious and like to explore.

ReyReyReyReyReyRey
DESCRIPTION:

Rey was surrendered to us so that we could find her a loving family.  She is a young beautiful girl, she is skittish of new things and would benefit from training and ongoing socialization.  She lived in her previous home with other dogs and did well.  We are told she has been around children, but we have not introduced her to children.  Right now Rey is a flight risk as she is unsettled in her new surroundings, which is understandable.  Our volunteers are spending time with her to help ease the transition.  At this time a home with very young children may be too much for her.  Rey will require a family that will help her transition to a new home and family.  A family that will help her move forward and feel secure.  She will also benefit from a strong leader, who has prior experience with the breed. She is a sweet girl that needs structure, consistency and training.

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.

SheebaSheebaSheebaSheebaSheebaSheebaSheebaSheebaSheebaSheebaSheebaSheebaSheebaSheebaSheebaSheeba
DESCRIPTION:

Sheeba found herself at a shelter needing rescue.  She is a young, high energy, untrained pup that needs a family who will commit to training and providing her with structure.  It's obvious no one has taken the time to teach her manners.  She will require a family who has the time and patience it will take to burn off her energy by going for walks, playtime and of course training.  She is an absolute love, smothering people with puppy kisses and lobbying for your attention and affection. 

Update:

Young Sheeba has greatly benefited from her 8 weeks of professional training at Stateline Canine. Originally, she found herself at a shelter and didn’t know much about interacting properly with the world when she came to MAGSR. But after professional training, she is much more able to enjoyably interact with people and normal daily activities. She is much more observant of her handler now, and has learned basic commands. Her leash skills have also improved a great deal. She has completed on & off leash training and comes with private lessons for her future owners. Sheeba has an awesome temperament and will be a wonderful companion for an active person or family. She needs a home that will give her an outlet for her energy and will follow through with the training. She has a lot of energy and had zero focus and no ability to settle prior to training. She is very social with people and works very well once bonded with someone. Sheeba is ready to move on to a forever home. If you would like to meet Sheeba, she is ready to meet you and your family! Please ask to meet Sheeba today!

Werther cannot be any cuter and is absolutely a great little boy, happy go lucky and loves to give puppy kisses. Werther 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, Werther will become even more of an amazing boy than he already is. If interested and he sounds like a good match for your family, please submit an adoption application! Werther will be available for adoption on April 20th at 8 weeks old.
