DESCRIPTION:

Ballot came to us an owner surrender as his former person took ill and could no longer care for him.  He is a large, very handsome, long haired male.  His coat is not in the best condition at this time as he did not receive the grooming a long coated dog requires.  He will be a having a spa day to remove dirt and matted fur.  He is a friendly boy, he does need to learn some good manners which training will help with him,

Updates:
  • Howdy! Ballot checking in. I'm very happy here and my humans love me a lot. We have a lot of fun. I'm learning a lot too....mostly what not to do. I've started making a list of things I'm not supposed to do:

    • Steal towels, especially when they are wrapped around a human.
    • Get in the shower with my humans.
    • Lift the lid on the toilet to get a drink.
    • Bite the hand of the person throwing my ball.
    • Counter-surf
    • Sit on the tables
    • Sit on the kids laying on the floor
    • Recycling bin inspections.
    • Run off with socks and underwear laid out for the kids
    • Nibble while giving kisses.
    • Run off with and hide shoes.
    • Look the humans in the eye while we're both standing
    • Lay on the kids while cleaning their faces (this is very hard not to do because they are really squeaky when you do this)
    • Pick out my own books from the bookshelves.
    • Put both front feet in the water bowl when drinking.
    • Open the door myself.
    • Grab and eat the fish food containers

    Did I mention that I'm pretty? I'm also pretty good at getting in my crate when told, and waiting for the humans to go up and down the stairs first. I'm learning to sit and wait for the humans to go through the door first. I love to play ball and am very good at catching them in the air. They tell me I'm pretty smart and learning quickly, I just have a lot to learn right now. I'm very friendly with all the humans that come in the house and the ones we meet outside too. I don't let my humans get too far away because they like me to keep an eye on them. I love love love the pool and get in it everytime I go outside.

    I get fed three times a day and am trying to add a few pounds to help me fill out a bit. My humans comb and condition my hair everyday, it makes me smell awesome and my hair is sooo soft now. I still have a few clumps behind my ears and at the back of my head but we're working on them.

    The pool is calling my name so I better get going. Bark at ya laterz,

Murphy

ADOPTED 08/12/2018!

Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Age at adoption: 3 years oikd
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 66 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No
Living With: Kennel
History: Shelter

Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: Unknown

MurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphy
DESCRIPTION:

Murphy made his way to us from a shelter where he was a stray.  We have no past history for him, so we are getting to know him.  He requires a slower approach when meeting new people.   He is in need of training which will help him learn good manners, build his confidence and bond with his new family.

Updates:
  • Murphy is an interesting high energy pup. He’s likely had very little structure in his life to this point and is in need of a strong willed person or family to help guide his future and provide consistent and strong structure, especially with his indoor manners. He’s easy to leash up and walk, both on long and short leash. He’s loves car rides but seems unfamiliar with exiting or entering the car. He is unfamiliar with stairs but is learning to handle them quickly. He has a very high ball drive and will bring the ball back to his human as long as the ball is thrown again. Murphy loves his humans of all ages and wants to be with them always. He needs some work on his manners and is prone to countertop surfing. He also needs help learning that his crate is a safe place to stay. He takes treats gently and is very treat motivated. He is happy to work with anyone willing to give him a chance, could that be you?

  • Murphy is a sweet boy who takes time to get to know you.  Once he decides you're his friend, you are allowed the honor of bestowing belly rubs!  And then come the kisses!  He's great on leash, sitting at stops while in heel, knows basic obedience and follows his handler. He's VERY food driven, which is a very handy training tool.  He is going to need someone who can commit to the exercise and training he needs to keep his mind and body healthy.  He's such a handsome boy, do you think you have room for Murphy in your heart and home?

Shasta

ADOPTED 08/12/2018!

Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Age at adoption: 2 yrs
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 63 lbs
Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No
Living With: Kennel
History: Owner Surrender

Good With Kids: Older kids, over 12
Good With Cats: Unknown
Other Dogs OK: Yes, non-dominant only

ShastaShastaShastaShastaShastaShastaShastaShastaShastaShastaShastaShastaShastaShasta
DESCRIPTION:

Shasta has lived her life in a crate, up to 23 hours a day.  Due to this she is under socialized and fearful.  She needs an adopter that has experience, has the time and patience to help her to adjust to life outside of a crate.  A good training program and commitment from her person is very much needed.  She has met other dogs and handled non dominate dogs the best, she ran away from dogs that were trying to dominate her.  Due to her fearfulness we will not place her in a home with young children.  Shasta is learning to trust our volunteers, but requires a slow approach.  She relaxed some when she was introduced to a squeaky toy, she ran and jumped around like a puppy.

Shasta will only meet potential adopters who have experience with GSD's that are not well socialized.  Shasta needs a home where she is safe, a quieter home without a lot of commotion. At this time she is a flight risk and will require to be on leash when outside.  She will not meet families with children under the age of 12.  

Updates:
  • Shasta has made a lot of progress while in our care.  She has come out of her shell and has gained confidence, she  is no longer fearful.  She has become silly, outgoing and playful.   She is friendly with people and excited to see our volunteers.  Shasta still needs to learn how to properly interact with other dogs.  Her overly excited approach when meeting other dogs may not be tolerated by other dogs.  She loves the water and her squeaky toy, a pool keeps her quite occupied and provides her humans with entertainment.  She has energy to spare, so a family who has the time and energy to work with her both physically and mentally will help keep her energy in check.  If you are looking for a laid back dog, Shasta is not for you.  If you enjoy running, long walks and lots of playtime Shasta would be a great choice.

TzarTzarTzarTzarTzarTzar
DESCRIPTION:

Tzar came to us as an owner surrender as his human mom recently had surgery that kept her from being able to provide him with any exercise.  Wanting what was best for him, she entrusted us to find him a family that could provide him a life he deserves.  In his previous home he lived with cats and got along fine.  He did well meeting other dogs and children while being walked.  He seems to be a well rounded boy with a great disposition.  Of course training will help not only Tzar, but his new family learn more about each other and set things up for a lifetime of good manners

ApolloApolloApolloApollo
DESCRIPTION:

Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No

History: Xena found herself as a stray sitting in a shelter. She is very sweet, full of kisses and thinks she's a lap dog once she gets to know you. Upon first meeting Xena she is timid and unsure of herself, but given time she relaxes. She seems to be more comfortable with women than she is with men. With the men she has met while in our care she preferred to keep her distance by staying at the end of the leash. Our male volunteers are handling her to help feel more secure with men. She will need a family who can help her build confidence, providing structure, socialization and training will greatly help.

TakodaTakodaTakodaTakodaTakodaTakodaTakodaTakodaTakodaTakodaTakoda
DESCRIPTION:

Takoda is such a sweet boy, he has a wonderful disposition.  He is young and does require training, but with his smarts and wanting to please his people, he will be the rock star of his training class.  He has done well with the many dogs of varying sizes he has met, and he has done well meeting children.  Prior to arriving in our care he tested positive for heartworm, we will have another test done by our vet to confirm.  If Takoda is heartworm positive he will need to undergo heartworm treatment.  This is paid for by MAGSR, Heartworm treatment requires that the dog remain calm, no over exertion.  This means short leash walks for pottying, no running or jumping and crate rest until the treatment protocol has been completed.  If you are considering Takoda please be sure you are committed to seeing him through treatment, following the guidelines without exception.

DESCRIPTION:

Mochi came to us as a stray from a shelter.  It is hard to believe that no one was looking for him, he is absolutely a wonderful boy.  He is friendly with everyone he meets, just an overall friendly boy.  He enjoys playing with other dogs, lots of playtime helps him burn off the energy of a young dog.  Mochi is certainly ready to move on and to meet his new family.

 

Updates:
  • Mochi has gotten comfortable in his foster home. Mochi is very social with his foster family and resident dog. He prefers to be in the room that his humans are in - he is a loving boy that will snuggle right up with his humans. Mochi loves to be scratched under his chin and behind his ears. He loves the resident children and everyone that comes to the house to visit. Mochi is housebroken and is learning his basic commands. He walks nicely on a leash, enjoys his time outside and even enjoys being brushed. Mochi loves to play with a ball although he's still working on the fetch component of ball playing. Mochi is great in the crate during the day but also has been no trouble whatsoever if given a room to hang out in while he waits for his humans. Are you ready for a fun loving boy that will adore you forever? If so, ask for Mochi!

SallySallySallySallySallySallySallySallySallySallySallySallySallySilly SallySallySallySallySallySallySally
DESCRIPTION:

Sally came to us with no former history, so we are getting to know her.  She is quite skittish, but has shown no aggression, she just wants to hide.  For this reason she is a flight risk and will need to be walked on a leash, even in a fenced yard.  With training, structure and guidance Sally will build her confidence.   Once bonded to her new family, which takes time and patience, trust will be gained.  Due to her being a flight risk this time, we will not place her in a home with young children who could accidentally open a door allowing Sally to escape.  She loves her crate as it is her safe place.  With the crate door open she will freely go in.  She is in a foster home where she is learning to trust humans, becoming accustomed to the sights, sounds and smells of a home and being around humans that love her.  Sally will need a family who will take the time to show her that humans are not mean, that she is safe and loved.  She does not need to be coddled, she needs someone who will take the time to help her move past her fears, relax and learn to enjoy life.

Meet MAGSR's newest bonded pair - Chewy (m) & Tanga (f)! These two were surrendered to MAGSR after their human mom passed away - they are understandably confused and nervous.

Kona
KonaKonaKona
DESCRIPTION:
Kona is extremely affectionate and loving. He's a very big boy, but believes he is a lapdog and would love to show anyone his belly that will let him. He's very strong and active and loves people. He gets a little too excited when people come to his house and barks but quickly calms after a couple of minutes.

Kona has been to obedience training and was deemed a friendly, smart, stubborn dog. He has been gentle with a baby and toddler and never showed any aggression towards people. Kona thrived in a home with another Shepherd, cat, baby, and toddler. He would occasionally play a little rough with the cat but the cat ultimately always put Kona in his place. Kona does have a strong prey drive with small animals like squirrels and sometimes small dogs and cats.

Kona needs to be properly cared for around small animals because he doesn't always know his strength.  He's mostly very easy going and loves to be loved and give love to his family. He loves walks and belly rubs and just laying around the house with his other fur friends and family.

Copper
CopperCopperCopperCopperCopperCopperCopperCopper
DESCRIPTION:

Copper was surrendered to a shelter as the family had 8 dogs which was against county pet laws.  He is wonderful with other dogs. He is somewhat timid and looks to his person for guidance and direction.  He feels much more comfortable when his person is a confident handler.  He enjoys curling up in your lap and being loved on.  

Updates:
  • Copper is a very gentle and loving young dog, and so handsome with his beautiful white coat.  He is on the sensitive and introverted side of things and so is very comfortable and doing well in his quiet foster home, with the older and easygoing resident dogs.  Copper needs extra time to meet new people, and needs a light touch to learn and trust in new situations, but once he accepts you he is very sweet and very affectionate, and wants nothing more than just to be with you.  With careful exposure he is getting more comfortable each day with crowds, loud noises, unexpected motion, etc., but he has limits and will do best in a more quiet, slow moving, and nurturing environment.  Copper is housebroken, crates well, loves other dogs, and loves to run with his foster dad for exercise. Copper is a gentle spirit that will make a wonderful addition to the right family that can provide the gentle but firm love and leadership he needs to thrive. Could that be you?

Zeus
ZeusZeusZeusZeusZeusZeusZeusZeusZeusZeusZeusZeusZeusZeusZeusZeus
DESCRIPTION:

Zeus was adopted from us as an 8 week old puppy.  He was returned as the adopter claims he is moving and could not find housing that would allow a large breed dog.  Zeus is a wonderful, friendly boy.  He needs some brushing up on his obedience training.  He is over weight and could use to lose pounds, walks, and playtime along with cutting back on his food intake will help him reach optimal weight.  He was often left with a pet sitter who had children and cats, he did fine with all.  In his previous home he lived with other dogs without problems.  Zeus will make a great family addition, please ask to meet him.

Updates:
  • Zeus is settling in to his foster home. He is very playful and just a big clumsy puppy. Zeus loves to take nice long walks with his foster dad, which is helping him lose a couple of pounds already.  Zeus started off mouthy but is also learning manners in his foster home. Zeus is very affectionate with his foster family and is great with the young child in the home as well. If Zeus sounds like a good fit for you, please ask to meet him.

Piper 07-19-18PiperPiper 07-19-18 2BristolBristolBristolBristolBristolBristolBristolBristolBristolPiper
DESCRIPTION:

Bristol was not well cared for by her previous person.  She often went without being fed, allowed to run at large putting her in danger of being hit by cars.  She has had no training and no guidance.  Regardless of her lack of her care and guidance she is a sweet, friendly young girl.  She enjoys the company of and playing with other dogs and she is good with children.  Of course she will require formal training, it not only teaches her how to be a well behaved and balanced girl, but it also helps with creating a bond with her new family.  Please be sure you have the time and patience to commit to Bristol for the rest of her life.

Updates:
  • Unfortunately Piper was returned to us after almost 5 months after showing too much interest in the resident cats. Piper is understandably confused why her family gave her up. Her foster reports that she doesn't appear to have had much training. Piper is now in a foster home where she'll wait for the right family and learn what she can learn during that time, along with playing with the resident dog. If you can commit to Piper for her lifetime, please ask to meet her.

  • Hi.  My new name is Piper – I have had a few names in my short life but this one has stuck.  I answer really well to my new name.

    As you can see I am back with the great people of MASGR.  My foster mom says I am all the best things found in a puppy and GSD.  BUT, if those are not what you are looking for, I am not the best fit for you. I am super smart, cute and loyal.  Also I am a puppy and I have a lot of energy and love to play …. all day.  Remember I am a working bread and need to have exercise and mental stimulation to keep me, and you ultimately, happy and healthy.  Please be committed to meeting my activity and mental stimulation needs.  My foster mom says I would be best with a furry brother or sister who I can play with and in an active family. I love kids! But obviously I am a pretty big dog and a puppy – so would be best with children comfortable with big dogs.  I love all people, dogs, toys and belly rubs! Overall, I am a naturally very well behaved dog. Though I do need some additional training - have started learning basic commands, but am not yet consistent. I do need additional training for walking on a lead. I am great about being house trained – but since I play a lot and drink a lot - thus need to get out to do my business. I am an amazing dog and have had a lot of change in my short life – but there are no obvious negative impacts – I have taken it all in stride.  But I deserve a wonderful forever family – one where we are both together a great fit - me for you, and you for me.  If you think you are that family – ask to meet me.  It’ll be hard for you to not fall in love…..

He was first in a shelter at 4 weeks old, adopted at 8 weeks old as a cute adorable puppy only to be returned at 7 months old.  He was too much to handle and no time was spent on training.  He was then adopted again and returned as his family was moving and they were not willing to find a place that allowed dogs.  Chauncey didn't deserve to be treated this way, he is not disposable.  He is 73 lbs but could stand to lose 5 lbs or so.  Nothing that daily exercise, walks and a little less food won't help.  He enjoys the outdoors, playing, going for walks and exploring his surroundings.  Please, when considering adding a dog to your family that you are able to commit to them for their lifetime.  They should be treated as a loving family member.

Updates:
  • Chauncey is crate trained, housebroken, sits and lays down when told, and is easy to walk on a leash. Chauncey loves attention and follows his humans around the house every time they move and is always excited to see them. Chauncey loves playing with his toys, brings them back to his handler and waits for them to be thrown again. Chauncey is a very sweet boy who just wants to love and be loved. He definitely needs a fur-ever home. Ask to meet him today.

  • Hello, my name is Chauncey.  Since I've been with my humans for several weeks, I have learned their routine so I do what I'm supposed to before they tell me.  When it's time to go up to my cage, I'm going up the stairs before they know it. When it's time to go to bed I go up the steps with my humans standing guard because the house dog likes to pick on me.  I start off at one side of the bed, away from the house dog, then in the middle of the night when the house dog is asleep I sneak over and jump up on the bed and lay next to my human companion.  When it's time to go out I love walking my human companions around the block.  At meal time I run over to where I get fed and wait for them to come feed me.  I sit waiting for them to put the bowl down, drooling.  When they tell me it's okay to eat, I chomp out!  I also try to fool them and run over there like it's dinner time on the chance they'll feed me again.  I like going to the park where I can meet other people and see other dogs that I would like to play with. I like other dog buddies.  I like playing with my toys in the house. I really like my rubber bottle and bring it to my humans so they can throw it for me to retrieve. I love jumping my front paws on their lap so they give me attention, and I love all the attention they give me. I love my female human - when she comes home I wag my tail , follow her around and jump up on her with smiles, going a little crazy. I'm looking for a fur-ever home.

  • My human friend keeps taking me to a store where I get to meet adults and kids.  The adults come up and pet me, and the kids come up and pet me, and sometimes I lay down and roll over so they can rub my belly.  I really enjoy that, but it wears me out, so I sleep in the car on the way home, then I'm ready to go again. The other day we went to the park.  There was a teen age girl and a grandmother I met, and a four year old girl that wanted to pet me rather than the other dog.  She kept giving me small sticks to play with, and was having a good time.  Then she came up and gave me a big hug around the neck and I really enjoyed that!  I really like playing with kids.

DESCRIPTION:

Ozzie's former person took ill and was no longer able to care for  him.  He was brought to the VA area by a family member and is now in our care looking for his forever family.  Ozzie is a very big boy at 94 lbs  He has undergone formal training but will require further training with his new family.  He has not lived with dogs before but did well meeting another German Shepherd during our evaluation.  Ozzie does have the tendency to herd (nip at) children, for this reason we feel it is best that he not be placed in a home with young children.  A boy of this size can be intimating to small children and he could also accidentally knock them down.  For the most past Ozzie's former person exercised Ozzie on daily 2 mile walks and lots of games of fetch.  Daily exercise is key to  keep energy in check, so please be sure you have the time to commit to his exercise needs, training and of course a lifetime of love and care.

Sweet Shrek was surrendered to us as his former person had no time for him.  He was being left in a junk filled backyard.  Shrek has a partially missing ear which we were told his mother bit off.  It seems that he also has some damage to the tip of his other ear.  This in no way takes away from how adorable him, it gives him his own unique look.  He is in a foster home enjoying his time living indoors, having a large clean yard to romp around in with the resident dogs.  His foster family has started working with him on training and he is learning quickly.  It is important that his new family continues with training and keeping him socialized with other people and dogs.  This time in his life is critical for this as it provides a great foundation for him to be a well balanced adult.

JackJackJackJackJackJackJackJackJackJackJackJackJackJackJack
DESCRIPTION:

Jack came to us with no prior history, so we are getting to know him.  He can be a little unsure of new things and people which results him hiding.  But once comfortable with his person he becomes a 75 lb. lap dog.  He will flourish with training and guidance, this will help him build a bond with his family and relax so that he can enjoy the world around him.  He does have a lot of strength and no leash manners, this is something that needs to be worked on.  If you are looking for a handsome boy and don't mind a large lap dog to cuddle with then Jack is your boy

Updates:
  • Jack has been settling nicely into his foster home. Although it takes him a few minutes to get comfortable with new people, once adjusted, Jack is a happy-go-lucky guy. Jack thrives with stability and leadership. This intelligent guy has quickly been developing some basic skills. At this time he is learning sit, down, paw, crate, out and heel. With the correct gear, consistency, and some high-value treats, Jack is more than happy to try new things. 

    Although Jack is learning a lot, he also understands that sometimes you need to take a break and simply enjoy life. Jack loves toys. He will play fetch and happily bound around after a ball or a plush toy. However, if you need to take a break, Jack is very capable of entertaining himself. He tends to end up upside down with a goofy smile across his face. As a typical shepherd, Jack likes to be with his people. He makes an excellent shadow and takes every opportunity to cuddle. Sometimes it seems that he really does think he's a 10lb puppy rather than a 75lb dog. 

     

    If you are ready for new adventures, a lot of smiles, and a big companion, Jack is your guy. Please ask to meet him today.

ReugerReugerReugerReugerReugerReugerReugerReugerReugerReugerReugerReuger
DESCRIPTION:

Reuger is a young, handsome boy who has been through basic obedience training.  It is imperative that he continues training with his new family.  Reuger is not good with small dogs and will not be placed in a home with small dogs.  In his previous home he had escaped the home through an opened door and an electric fence going after small dogs in the neighborhood.  He did live with a cat, getting along fine as long as the cat did not run around.  He also lived with a female GSD and was fine with her.  Reuger does play rough with other dogs, so another dog in the home must be playful and accepting of rough housing.  Reuger also has the tendency to get mouthy with people when he is overly excited.  Training, structure and direction can help with these behaviors.  Reuger will do best with experienced GSD people, who have the time and knowledge to work with him.

DESCRIPTION:

Samson came to us as an owner surrender as his former person could no longer care for him due to personal health issues.  Samson is shy when when meeting new people, he requires a little time to check you out.  He is good with children and other dogs, but prefers his home be cat free.  Samson needs to build up his confidence, socialization along with training will help him, along with structure.  He is in a foster home adjusting to the changes in his life.

Updates:
  • I'm doing great in my foster home. I love playing with the resident dogs and enjoy my time with the resident children. Sometimes I get a little scared but with patience and gentle coaxing I get over my fears. I don't mind my crate and I know to go out when I need to relieve myself. My favorite activities include playing with the resident dogs, chewing bones and just chilling out.  I look forward to more outside time once the weather gets nicer. If you have patience and are willing to work with me I will be your best friend. Interested? I'd love to meet you!

MurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphy
DESCRIPTION:

Murphy made his way to us from a shelter where he was a stray.  We have no past history for him, so we are getting to know him.  He requires a slower approach when meeting new people.   He is in need of training which will help him learn good manners, build his confidence and bond with his new family.

Updates:
  • Murphy is an interesting high energy pup. He’s likely had very little structure in his life to this point and is in need of a strong willed person or family to help guide his future and provide consistent and strong structure, especially with his indoor manners. He’s easy to leash up and walk, both on long and short leash. He’s loves car rides but seems unfamiliar with exiting or entering the car. He is unfamiliar with stairs but is learning to handle them quickly. He has a very high ball drive and will bring the ball back to his human as long as the ball is thrown again. Murphy loves his humans of all ages and wants to be with them always. He needs some work on his manners and is prone to countertop surfing. He also needs help learning that his crate is a safe place to stay. He takes treats gently and is very treat motivated. He is happy to work with anyone willing to give him a chance, could that be you?

  • Murphy is a sweet boy who takes time to get to know you.  Once he decides you're his friend, you are allowed the honor of bestowing belly rubs!  And then come the kisses!  He's great on leash, sitting at stops while in heel, knows basic obedience and follows his handler. He's VERY food driven, which is a very handy training tool.  He is going to need someone who can commit to the exercise and training he needs to keep his mind and body healthy.  He's such a handsome boy, do you think you have room for Murphy in your heart and home?

Annie is becoming more interested and outgoing each day. Both girls love to take rides in the car. Annie is super cuddly after she warms up to you.

  • Annie is a dog that will require her family to keep her safe.  She has a tendency to run off if given the chance when not properly contained on a leash or within a secure 6 foot fenced area.  We have learned in her previous home that she would quite often wander off of the property which was not fenced.

DESCRIPTION:

Olaf is an affectionate boy, he enjoys time with his family.  He is housebroken and crate trained.  He was in a foster home previously living with other dogs, cats and children, he did fine with all.  In his adoptive home he lived with another dog and for reasons unknown he would bark at her incessantly at times.  He would go to a dog park, but would want to herd the other dogs, along with barking at them.  For this reason Olaf would not be a dog that should go to a dog park.  Olaf has had basic obedience training, but further training is needed.  Olaf has energy to burn, so a backyard for him to run and play would help his energy.  Walks, runs and working on his training will help him both physically and mentally burn energy.

JaggerJaggerJaggerJaggerJaggerJaggerJaggerJaggerJaggerJaggerJaggerJaggerJaggerJaggerJaggerJaggerJaggerJaggerJagger
DESCRIPTION:

Jagger was not well cared for in his previous home, he also was not well socialized or provided with any training.  Jagger will need a adopter that has experience with the breed and has the time and energy to devote to his training.  He takes sometime to warm up to new people, so a slow approach is best with this big boy.  High value treats are a great way to his heart.  Guidance from his new family, ongoing socialization and a good training program will help young Jagger become a well rounded boy. 

Updates:
  • Now that Jagger is in a foster home, his true personality is shinning through. Jagger is a very affectionate boy and will shower his human with doggies kisses every opportunity he gets. He frequently underestimates his size and will try and climb into your lap to be pet. Jagger is a big boy and will jump on you/ into you and can be mouthy when excited, which he is working on with his foster mom so best to go to a home without small children. His leash manners have improved in a short time and he heels nicely next to his handler with pinch/prong collar on and he is starting to learn some basic obedience.  Jagger rides beautifully in the car, taking in all the sights and sounds.  He is not as scared of new people now that he is away from the stress of the kennel environment, but he can still sometimes be weary of strangers and will bark at them. He is a very picky eater and so far have discovered a handful of treats/food he will eat, one of them being canadian bacon. He knows how to play fetch as you can see in his video on his profile and enjoys playing with toys. He has also conquered his fear of the vacuum and instead will focus on playing with his toy while it is on. When Jagger gets too hot, he will remove the top layer of gravel at the dog park and lay beneath a picnic bench. Jagger wants nothing more then to be with his people and will not leave their side. Jagger is the epitome of a GSD; smart, strong, loyal and as such will need someone with GSD experience who will lead him and teach him. If Jagger sounds like the dog for you please ask to meet him, he's waiting for you.

DESCRIPTION:

Lolly was dumped at a shelter extremely emaciated. Doing some research her original owner was found. Lolly was given away in Dec and ended up in a shelter in March. She has gained some weight but still needs more. She is such a sweet and loving girl. Lolly has EPI, Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency. This is caused when the pancreas does not produce enough enzymes to properly digest food. This is very easily treated by adding enzymes to each meal which helps the body digest food. More information can be found at epi4dogs.com along with before and after pictures of dogs that have EPI.

Lolly is now receiving the enzymes she needs and is gaining weight. Please do not let EPI deter you from considering Lolly, she deserves a family to love and care for her and in return she will give you her devotion.

Updates:
  • Lolly is quickly adapting to life in her foster home.  She crates nicely and is only noisy when she needs to go out to do her business and has proven to be housebroken so far.  She likes to play fetch, has good ball drive, and tug  - she's learning the "out or drop it" command so it’s best to have two balls.  Lolly gets along well with the resident large dog. She gets very aroused when she knows her food is being prepared with the enzymes and she does better separated from any other dogs during feeding time. Lolly has been friendly to all humans she has met and enjoys affection - especially the butt rub.  She seemed appreciative of the bathing process especially all the massaging and rubbing.  Lolly knows some basic commands and doesn’t pull to much on the leash.  Lolly is very smart and she will take advantage of her human without consistency, so she’ll need someone who can teach her the rules.  If you’re looking for a young dog with medium energy - ask to see beautiful Lolly!
