Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 4 years 3 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 90 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 90 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Working on it
Altered: Yes

Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: No
Other Dogs OK: Yes
DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Beau is an incredibly sweet guy. His family had some changes over the last year that resulted in a move from the family's farm to a suburban townhouse life. Unfortunately, Beau was not adjusting well to these changes. Recognizing that Beau would be happier in a different environment with a family with the ability to spend more time with him, his family made the difficult decision to surrender him to MAGSR. We promised that we would find Beau an amazing forever home where he would have every opportunity to enjoy himself.

Beau is one amazing guy. He has clearly been well socialized with people. He is beyond friendly with everyone he meets, but we are still learning how he interacts with other dogs. Beau loves ear rubs, frisbee, car rides and has been the perfect patient at the vet. It is very apparent that he has a special personality. 

As is true of all shepherds, Beau needs a forever family that can provide him with the time, structure, and training needed to meet with success. Training is key as it will not only help Beau create a healthy bond with his new family, but it will also help him develop the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. MAGSR has already begun working with Beau to build his basic training. However, it will be critical that his forever family continue this process. 

Additionally, Beau has some medical needs that we are in the process of addressing. He arrived with a large lump on his back leg that had broken open and was severely infected. He was taken to the vet and the lump was biopsied. At this time the results are pending. The lump will likely need surgical removal. However, while we await results, we are keeping Beau safe and comfortable with a loving foster family. It seems that Beau realizes that we are trying to help and has been patient with all procedures. 

If Beau sounds like the perfect addition to your family please submit an app today!

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely little Paisley was picked up as a stray and brought to a local shelter. Although she waited patiently for her family to claim her, no one arrived to bring her home. Recognizing that this little lady would be best placed if in a rescue, shelter staff reached out for help. When we heard that Paisley was looking for rescue, our team immediately began putting things in place to welcome her to MAGSR. 

Happy-go-lucky Paisley is a social and interactive girl. She has clearly been well socialized with people and thinks that everyone should take a chance to say hi. Although she loves her people, as is true of all puppies, Paisley will need to learn manners. Not only is Paisley social with people, she is also social with other animals. She is the life of the party and happy to bring joy wherever she goes. Typical of any GSD, Paisley will definitely need play time but she will also need structure, routine, and leadership. This will help her develop the mindset needed to become a confident and stable adult GSD. Although Miss Paisley is cute as a button, please remember that puppies are a lot of work. They will whine, bark, chew on inappropriate things, and have accidents. With time, patience, routine, and regular exercise, Paisley will become the good canine citizen we know she is destined to be. If this little love bug sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today!

Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 3 years 4 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 95 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 100 lbs
Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: Working on it
Altered: Yes

Good With Kids: Older kids, over 16
Good With Cats: Unknown
Other Dogs OK: Yes
DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Bosco was picked up as a stray with his mate, Brandi. These two incredible dogs had clearly been through some difficult times. Recognizing that these incredible dogs would be most successful if they decompressed in foster homes, another rescue arranged for them to stay in foster families while they waited out their stray hold. Both dogs were placed in loving foster homes with other dogs. When their stray hold had ended and they had had some time to decompress, we were asked if we could welcome both dogs into the rescue. Really, who could say no to such a lovely pair of dogs?

Bosco is a big, intelligent, and driven guy. He reads the handler very well but will, like many driven shepherds, will push the line if he has an opportunity. For this reason, Bosco will be best suited for an experienced GSD household. A huge fan of balls, Bosco is hoping that his forever family has a good throwing arm and enjoys play time just as much as he does. As is true of all shepherds, Bosco will thrive in a household that provides him with structure, guidance, and routine. Although Bosco has already begun training, it is essential that his new family continue this process. Training will not only help Bosco bond with his forever family but it will also help him become a good canine citizen. If Bosco sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet this big guy today!

Other Dogs OK: Yes
DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Persephone was picked up as a stray and brought to a local shelter. Upon arrival shelter staff knew something was very wrong. Persephone was vomiting and had bloody stool. Hoping they were wrong, shelter staff ran a parvo test. Unfortunately, it came back positive. Recognizing that this virus kills countless dogs every year, shelter staff immediately began putting parvo protocols into place hoping that Persephone was a fighter. Although they took excellent care of Persephone, shelter staff knew that Persephone would be most successful if she was placed in a rescue where she could continue to get the care she needed and recuperate in a loving foster home. When we heard about Persephone's situation, our team immediately began putting plans into place to help this little one join the MAGSR family. 

As a young girl, Persephone should be busy playing, napping, and learning about the world around her. Unfortunately, right now, this is not the case. Instead Persephone is under the care of one of our amazing veterinarians while she fights for her life. Positive for both parvo and pancreatitis, Persephone is receiving around the clock supportive care so that her body has time to heal. So far, it appears that this little girl has a lot of fight in her. We are hoping this remains. Please consider donating to Persephone's care. Caring for a pup with parvo is very expensive. However, we know that Persephone is beyond worth the cost. Your donation will not only help us support Persephone as she fights for survival but it will also help us welcome other dogs with medical needs. 

At this time, Persephone is not ready for adoption. However, we hope that in time she will be ready for a forever home that will give her a lifetime of love. Please remember that puppies are a lot of work. They will whine, cry, have accidents, and chew on inappropriate items. With time, patience, structure, and routine, Persephone will develop into the good canine citizen we know she is destined to become. 

Updates:

I picked up sweet Persephone on Friday the 13th and took her from the animal shelter  to the hospital so she could be treated and monitored further.  She had bright eyes and wagged her tail when I approached.  We were still worried that she might not make a recovery but she is a little fighter!  I picked her up from the hospital the following Monday and what a change!  Her eyes were even brighter and her tail wags were more vigorous.  She has been eating and playing and doing what normal puppies should do.  

You can tell that after her time on the streets, she has learned to fend for herself and fight for what she wants.  She can resource guard food and her favorite person.  I am hand feeding her and teaching her that there is plenty of food, toys and people to love on her.  Her new family will need to work with her so she grows into a well mannered canine citizen.  She is a quick learner.  She sits for food, treats, to leave the crate and at doors (if asked).  She is very food motivated.  She sleeps in her crate at night and loves to be with the pack.  She doesn't like to be left behind.  She  is gaining more weight daily.  She loves to play with her other puppy friends and would enjoy a companion - probably a male or non-alpha female.  She hasn't met any children or cats yet and would likely be fine with them but she is a puppy and has those razor sharp teeth.  We are working on potty training and she is making great progress.  

Look no further if you want a beautiful puppy full of spunk and energy! She promises to love you back ten fold.

Alpha

ADOPTED 05/15/2022!

Alpha
AlphaAlphaAlphaAlphaAlphaAlpha & BetaAlphaAlphaAlphaAlphaAlphaAlphaAlpha
Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 1 year 3 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 85 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 85 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: Unlikely
Other Dogs OK: Better with big dogs
DESCRIPTION:

Alpha and Beta appeared outside the home of an experienced GSD family. Recognizing the boys needed a safe place to stay while their family was located, this family brought the boys in and began making calls to local vets, shelters, and lost dog groups. Although word quickly spread that Alpha and Beta had been found and were safe, no one came to bring the boys home. When their stray hold ended, this family began working with local rescues to move the boys forward so that they could be safely placed in a loving forever home. As a member of the rescue network contacted to support Alpha and Beta, MAGSR was happy to step forward and help the boys move into the rescue family.

Alpha is a big, intelligent, and inquisitive guy. His name fits him well as he does like to be the leader. Although more confident than his buddy, Beta, Alpha lacks experience with new people and situations. As a result, he can be unsure and avoidant at first. When given time to adjust, Alpha becomes more affectionate and eager to interact. Clearly an intelligent guy, Alpha reads the handler well. He will be most successful in an experienced household. As is true of all young dogs, Beta will thrive when provided with clear structure, routine, and leadership. Continued socialization is critical as Alpha will need to learn how to navigate new environments and new people in a stable and confident manner. Training is essential as it will not only help Alpha create a healthy bond with his forever family, but it will also help him develop the stability and confidence needed to become a good canine citizen. 

Unfortunately, we have discovered that Alpha is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if he had been provided monthly prevention. Alpha's heartworm treatment has already begun. Although treatment is expensive, this incredible guy is beyond worth the cost. Please consider donating to Alpha's medical treatment. Your generosity will help us provide Alpha with the care he needs as well as other dogs with medical conditions. Alpha will need to take it easy over the next couple of months while he undergoes treatment. However, he will be ready to bounce around again soon. If you are looking for a young, intelligent, and active guy, ask to meet Alpha today.

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Lucky is looking for a calm and patient household that will commit to him for a lifetime. 

Updates:

Lucky's foster is happy to report he is settling in nicely with his foster humans and foster siblings.  Lucky is house broken and crate trained.  He acts like a big puppy so his foster is working on his jumping when he gets excited.  He loves playing with toys, will nudge your hand for pets and loves to give kisses.  We think he was taught not to get on the furniture in his previous home as he will lay at your feet quite happy to be close to his human but will not try to get on the furniture.  Lucky has not been well socialized so he can get skittish, but in the week he has been with MAGSR he is calming down nicely.

,

Lucky is doing great in his foster home. He can be wary of new people and will need to be given time to trust new people and situations.  He warms up after a few days and is very attached to his foster and follows her everywhere and sleeps right beside the bed. He still seeks out his crate for refuge when he is scared and likely a product of being confined to his crate in previous home. Lucky is a sweet boy that just wants love and attention. His jumping has improved immensely but still gets excited when outside playing. Lucky will do best in a home without small children or small animals as he will chase small animals and due to his size may unintentionally knock a child over.   He is working on his leash manners and loves going for walks and gets very excited.  Lucky is hoping a little "Luck of the Irish" will help him find his forever home in the month of March, ask to meet Lucky today.

Farrah

ADOPTED 05/15/2022!

Farrah
FarrahFarrah
Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Mix
Approximate Age: 4 years 1 month
Color: Black, Tan & White
Current Size: 70 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Working on it
Altered: Yes

Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: Unknown
Other Dogs OK: Yes, with proper introduction
DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Farrah was adored by her family. They ensured she had everything she needed and was well loved. However, due to circumstances beyond their control, they needed to rehome Farrah. As a MAGSR dog, Farrah returned so that we could find her a new family. We promised Farrah's family that we would find her the perfect match.

 

Farrah is a social butterfly. She enjoys the company of people of all ages. However, she has a particular affinity for the company of children. She is simply delighted by their presence and has always been gentle with them. Perhaps this comes from being a mom herself at a young age. Although Farrah enjoys the company of other dogs, she would be most successful if placed with stable furry friends who are comfortable with an alpha's personality. She, like anyone, can be a little protective of her food. Then, again, who isn't when they are hungry or have something special? As is typical of all GSDs, Farrah is active and playful. She loves a good game of chase; however, she will need to develop a strong recall before playing this particular game. In order to continue to remain stable and confident, it is essential that Farrah's forever family exercise both her body and her mind on a daily basis. Training will be a critical piece of her exercise regiment; it will not only help Farrah develop a strong bond with her family, but it will also help her stimulate her mind. Farrah already knows several commands and enjoys the interaction. She will likely be the star of the class. 

 

Farrah is looking for a playful and active family that will care for her for a lifetime. Could that be with you?

Zena

ADOPTED 05/15/2022!

Zena

Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 2 years 3 months
Color: Black
Current Size: 60 lbs
Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: Unknown
Other Dogs OK: Yes, with proper introduction
DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Zena found herself in a very difficult situation. She was hit by a car near her home. Unfortunately, her family could not afford her care. As a result, they signed her over to a shelter in the south. With several deep wounds and a bad case of road rash, the shelter immediately had her seen by a vet. Treated with antibiotics, pain medications, and wound gel, Zena was monitored closely to make sure the healing process went well. Recognizing that Zena would need a safe and comfortable home in order to move forward, the shelter began reaching out to rescues for help. Knowing that Zena deserved a chance to move forward, MAGSR welcomed her to the family. 

Zena is a lovely girl. It is highly apparent that she was well socialized with people. Knowing a few commands already, such as sit and down, Zena has had some basic training in her home. She understands how to walk nicely on leash and is beyond happy to be out and about. No stranger to toys or treats, Zena dives right into the toy basket with gusto. With some strong jaws, tough toys are best for this girl. As a young shepherd, Zena is looking for an active household that will keep her body and mind well exercised. She hopes there are lots of toys involved too. Zena enjoys the company of other dogs; however, she is an alpha female. As a result, more submissive friends would be best. Like all GSDs, Zena will need training. Training will help not only Zena create a healthy bond with her forever family but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. 

Although we had hoped that Zena's medical needs were solved, we have learned that Zena is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided had she been kept on heartworm prevention. Heartworm treatment is expensive; however, sweet Zena is beyond worth the cost. MAGSR will cover the entire cost of Zena's treatment. Please consider donating to Zena as this donation will not only help us provide Zena with the care she needs, but it will also help other dogs with medical needs. Over the next few months, Zena will need to take it easy while she undergoes treatment. However, once treatment is complete, she will be back to bouncing around with toys again. If your household is looking for a lovely lady who could use a little good luck, please ask to meet Zena today.

Jackie

ADOPTED 05/14/2022!

Jackie
JackieJackieJackieJackieJackie
Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 10 months 1 week
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 49 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 60 lbs
Housebroken: No
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

Good With Kids: Unknown
Good With Cats: Unknown
Other Dogs OK: Yes
DESCRIPTION:

Jackie and her family - Axel, Gypsie, Genie, Sally, and Birdie - are victims of cruelty and neglect. All six dogs were living in horrific conditions. Chained in shower stalls, living in filth, abused, and starved, they endured unimaginable suffering at the hands of their owner. When word of their situation spread to local authorities, all 6 dogs were confiscated and charges were brought against their owner. Recognizing that these dogs would need significant support, a plea went out to see if they could be moved to the safety of a rescue. MAGSR answered that plea and immediately began working with local groups and animal services to get all six dogs the resources needed (medically and socially) to begin to move forward.  

In many ways Jackie is still a puppy. At only seven months, she has spent her puppyhood tied out and neglected. As a result, Jackie has not had the chance to be a puppy and will need this opportunity as she moves forward. Unsurprisingly, Jackie needs a little time to adjust to new people and new situations. With time, leadership, and patience, Jackie does start to warm up to her handler. As we continue to work with Jackie, we will begin to teach her that people can be kind, affectionate, and a source of love. At this time, Jackie is looking for an active and experienced household that will provide her with the structure, routine, and leadership that all shepherds need. Coming from a situation with little opportunity for affection or interaction with the world around her, Jackie will need opportunities to learn about the world in controlled settings. As is true of all young dogs, Jackie will need daily exercise for both her mind and her body. This will help her develop the ability to handle new people and environments confidently. Continued socialization is also critical for Jackie as this will help her develop into a stable adult. Providing Jackie with opportunities to interact with other people and other animals in a safe manner will help her develop essential skills that she has missed prior to her arrival in our care. Training will be an essential piece of this process, as it will not only help Jackie learn to develop a strong, healthy bond with her family, but it will also help her develop the skills needed to be a good canine citizen. Jackie is looking for an experienced, patient, and confident family that will help her develop into a balanced and loving dog. Could that be with you?

The GA 6 have been an expensive rescue, but so worth it.  If you can help us donating to the cost of their care, it you be very much appreciated!

MAGSR answered that plea and immediately began working with local groups and animal services to get all six dogs the resources needed (medically and socially) to begin to move forward.  

In many ways Sally is still a puppy. At only seven months, she has spent her puppyhood tied out and neglected. As a result, Sally has not had the chance to be a puppy and will need this opportunity to expend her puppy energy and antics in a healthy manner. Unfortunately, due to her previous circumstances, Sally has not had the opportunity to live in a home. She does not yet know the joy of a soft bed, plenty of toys, or a home to call her own. Once she finds her forever home, she will have a lot to learn about living in a household. However, as an intelligent and food motivated girl, we know she will adjust. At this time, Sally is looking for an active household that will provide her with the structure, routine, and leadership that all shepherds need. Coming from a situation with little opportunity for affection or interaction with the world around her, Sally will need to learn about the sights, sounds, and smells of the world. As is true of all young dogs, Sally will need daily exercise for both her mind and her body. This will help her develop the ability to read new people and situations appropriately. Continued socialization is essential for Sally as this will help her develop into a stable and confident adult. Providing Sally with opportunities to interact with other people and other animals in a safe manner will help her develop essential skills that she has missed prior to her arrival in our care. Training will be a critical piece of this process, as it will not only help Sally learn to develop a healthy bond with her family, but it will also help her develop the skills needed to be a good canine citizen. Sally is looking for an adventurous family that will help her develop into a balanced and loving dog. Could that be with you?

Other Dogs OK: Yes
DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Jack was picked up as a stray in the south. Although he waited patiently for his family to come and claim him, no one arrived. Having been placed at a very crowded shelter, Jack was living on borrowed time. Fortunately, the right people heard about his story and were able to pull him right before he was euthanized. Although they knew that Jack would need to transfer to another rescue, they also knew that this boy deserved to live. When asked if we could help Jack move forward, MAGSR immediately stepped up. 

Jack is a young, inquisitive, and energetic guy. He seems to enjoy the company of people and other dogs. However, he needs a little time with new places and transitions. Having been bounced around so much in the last few months, this seems reasonable. Jack can't wait to find his forever family so that he can settle down and finally be home. As a young guy, Jack is looking for an active family that will exercise both his body and his mind on a daily basis. Due to the lack of consistency in Jack's life, it will also be essential that his forever family provide him with clear structure, routine and leadership. Training will help Jack's family support him within the home as it will help him bond with his forever family. Training will also help Jack develop into a stable and confident good canine citizen. 

Unfortunately, we have learned that Jack is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been prevented, had he been kept on monthly heartworm prevention. Jack's heartworm treatment has already begun. Although treatment is expensive, MAGSR knows that this handsome guy is beyond worth the cost. MAGSR will be covering the cost of Jack's heartworm treatment in its entirety. Please consider donating to Jack's treatment so that we can not only provide Jack with the care he needs but can also continue to welcome medical dogs into the rescue. Jack will need to take it easy over the next month or so while he heals. However, this will give him the opportunity to adjust slowly to his forever family. If this special guy sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet him today.

MAGSR answered that plea and immediately began working with local groups and animal services to get all six dogs the resources needed (medically and socially) to begin to move forward.  

Genie is a young, energetic, intelligent girl. She is looking for an active household that will provide her with the clear structure and routine that all shepherds need. Consistency and leadership are essential to developing stable and confident adult shepherds. Although clearly emaciated and mishandled, Genie is ready to move forward with a forever family of her very own. Coming from a situation with little opportunity for affection or interaction with the world around her, Genie is learning about the smells, sounds, and sites around her. As is true of all young dogs, Genie will need daily exercise for both her mind and her body. This will help her develop the ability to handle new people and situations in a calm and composed manner, as well as help her develop a healthy mindset. Continued socialization is also critical for Genie as she has spent her first year with limited interactions. Providing Genie with opportunities to interact with other people and other animals in a controlled manner will help her develop essential skills that could not be established while chained up. Training will be an essential piece of this process, as it will not only help Genie learn to develop a healthy bond with her family, but it will also help her develop the skills needed to be a good canine citizen. Genie is a young girl who deserves a safe and loving family of her very own. If she sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet Genie today.

Good With Kids: Older kids, over 16
Good With Cats: Unknown
Other Dogs OK: Yes
DESCRIPTION:

Joyful Cooper has been moved about a few times in his young life. However, he was lucky that the right people stepped in and recognized that a young, social guy like him would thrive in a household that had the time and energy to work with him. So, they brought Cooper to a local shelter where staff members fell in love with this interactive guy. Although Cooper easily won over the hearts of the shelter team, they recognized that he would be most successful if he found placement through a rescue. When we heard about Cooper's need for placement, we immediately welcomed him to the MAGSR family. 

 

Cooper is an interactive and social boy. He clearly has had the opportunity to interact with others throughout his puppyhood. Although Cooper definitely has a great start, continued socialization is imperative to his success as an adult. Typical of most young GSDs, Cooper has a lot of energy. It will be essential that Cooper's family exercise his body and his mind on a daily basis. This will help him maintain a stable and confident mindset. Although Cooper is still very young, he has already begun to learn some basic commands. His intelligence, willingness to please, and his food motivation makes him a great student. Cooper will excel in training class. Training will not only help Cooper develop a strong and healthy bond with his family, but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen that we know that he is destined to be. Cooper is looking for a loving and active household who will love him for a lifetime. Could this be with you?

Axel

Axel
AxelAxelAxel
Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 2 years 3 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 50 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 60 - 65 lbs
Housebroken: Working on it
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

Good With Kids: Unknown
Good With Cats: No
Other Dogs OK: Yes
DESCRIPTION:

Axel and his family - Gypsie, Jackie, Genie, Sally, and Birdie - are victims of cruelty and neglect. All six dogs were living in horrific conditions. Chained in shower stalls, living in filth, abused, and starved, they endured unimaginable suffering at the hands of their owner. When word of their situation spread to local authorities, all 6 dogs were confiscated and charges were brought against their owner. Recognizing that these dogs would need significant support, a plea went out to see if they could be moved to the safety of a rescue. MAGSR answered that plea and immediately began working with local groups and animal services to get all six dogs the resources needed (medically and socially) to begin to move forward.  

Axel is a young, energetic, and intelligent guy. He is looking for an active and experienced household that will provide him with the structure, routine, and leadership that all shepherds need. As the only male in the family, Axel seems to have been mistreated more than the other dogs. He can be hand-shy and head-shy, particularly, when fast movements above his head are used. Coming from a situation with little opportunity for affection or interaction with the world around him, Axel is taking every opportunity to explore and enjoy life. He is quickly discovering that people can be kind. Once he knows that you are safe, Axel leans in for head rubs and attention. As is true of all young dogs, Axel will need daily exercise for both his mind and his body. He is already beginning to learn a few basic commands and seems beyond happy to work with his handler. As a food motivated and smart guy, Axel will be the star of training class. Continued training will be an essential piece as Axel moves forward. Training will not only help Axel develop a healthy bond with his family, but it will also help him develop the skills needed to be a good canine citizen. Continued socialization is also critical for Axel as he has spent his first two years with limited interactions. Providing Axel with opportunities to interact with other people and other animals in a controlled manner will help him develop essential foundational skills that he missed while chained up. Axel already seems to be very social with the dogs in his family. They all seem to seek him out for comfort. 

We have discovered that Axel is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have easily been avoided had Axel been provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. Although treatment is very expensive, this interactive guy is beyond worth the cost. Axel's entire heartworm treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Donations toward his care are greatly appreciated as this will help us not only help this survivor get all of the care that he needs, but it will also help us continue to support medical dogs in need. Axel will need to take it easy over the next few months while he completes his treatment. However, this will give him time to learn about the ins and outs of living in a safe and loving home. Axel is looking for a loving, structured, and experienced household. If he sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet him today. 

The GA 6 have been an expensive rescue, but so worth it.  If you can help us donating to the cost of their care, it you be very much appreciated!

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet little Ash was picked up as a stray in the south. This cute little guy was brought to a crowded shelter where staff knew he would need a little extra TLC so that he could find a forever home that would love him for a lifetime. Recognizing that Ash should be transferred to a rescue, they reached out to MAGSR for help. We knew this little guy would be a great addition to the MAGSR family.

Ash is an absolute sweetheart but it is clear that he has lived through some difficult circumstances in his short life. As a result, he is definitely a shy guy. Often choosing the comfort and safety of his crate as a refuge while he adjusts, Ash is a quiet and somewhat timid guy. It will be critical that Ash's forever family work with him on socialization with people and other animals. This is essential for all young dogs as it helps them develop into confident and stable adults. Training will also be key for Ash as it will help him bond to his forever family as well as learn the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. Ash is looking for a loving forever family that will give him the time, patience, structure, and love he needs to blossom. In return he will provide a lifetime of love and loyalty. If Ash sounds like the right match for your household, please ask to meet this little honey today. 

Updates:

Ash is doing well transitioning to his foster home. He enjoys following the other dogs and prefers their company over human companionship at this time. He really enjoys running and playing in the yard, resting with a Nylabone as well as the safety of his crate. Ash is very nervous and shy around people. He is not aggressive, and will go into his crate when feeling scared. He will need a calm and patient family to give him time, training and structure. He would love to have a playful canine sibling as a good role model. He would do best with older calm children As he is not aggressive but very scared about sudden actions and loud noises.

DESCRIPTION:

Daisy was beloved by her mom. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, her mom was unable to provide her with the lifestyle that she knew Daisy deserved. As a result, she made the decision to surrender her to MAGSR. Although this was a very difficult decision, Daisy's mom knew that MAGSR would find Daisy an incredible forever home that would love her for a lifetime. 

Daisy is an impressive, affectionate, and interactive girl. It is highly apparent that her mom put a lot of work into making sure she would meet with success. Daisy is well socialized with people. She enjoys the company of people of all ages and has an absolute love of children. Affectionate with everyone, Daisy will quickly say hi with a few quick kisses and a good lean-in. Not only is Daisy people-friendly, she is also dog friendly. Age and temperament do not matter for Daisy, she simply wants to be friends with everyone. As Daisy moves forward, it is critical that her forever family will need to continue to support Daisy's socialization as this will help her further develop into a stable adult. Having already lived in a home, Daisy already understands many of the ins and outs of living in a household. She is crate trained and housebroken. Having already participated in training, she knows basic commands and heels well. However, as is true of all young dogs, she will benefit from continued training.

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Miss Onion was picked up as a stray on Onion street. Recognizing that this lovely girl would need a safe place to stay while her family was found, Onion was brought to a local shelter. Although shy and a little unsure in her new environment, Onion decompressed and became increasingly more interactive while she waited for her family to claim her. Unfortunately, no one came to bring Onion home. As shelter staff had watched Onion bloom into a sweet and playful girl, they felt that she would be most successful if placed with a breed specific rescue. This would be her best chance at finding the perfect forever home that would always keep her safe and loved. When MAGSR was asked to welcome Onion to the family, we stepped forward without a second thought. 

Onion is beautiful, young, and playful. However, when placed in new environments and in new situations, Onion is timid and unsure. A slow-hand, patience, and some high value treats make a big difference with Onion. When given the opportunity to adjust to new people and situations, Onion is affectionate and endearing. She has just the right amount of energy - not too high and not too low. A lover of the outdoors, it is thought that Onion was likely kept outside. She will be the perfect companion for a family that loves to be out and about on an adventure. Already well behaved on leash, Onion is already developing some of her basic skills. However, as is true of all dogs, training will go a long way. Training is essential for Onion as it will not only help her develop a healthy bond with her family but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. Onion is still learning about the joys of living inside. In many ways she is still a clean slate. Structure, routine, and leadership will be critical to her success. Onion is also looking for someone who likes to have a little fun. A good game of fetch is definitely in the cards for Onion. If this young lady sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet her today!

Birdie is a lovely lady. As the matriarch of the family, she endured years of hardship and neglect. Although she spent years in unspeakable conditions, Birdie remains sweet and interactive with volunteers. Birdie seems curious about the world around her and is clearly read to move forward. She must know that she is safe and loved. Birdie is both affectionate and responsive. Having never had the opportunity to live in a home, she will thrive with structure, routine, and leadership. As is true of all dogs, Birdie will need daily exercise for both her mind and her body. This will help her develop the ability to handle new people and situations in a calm and composed manner. Exercise will also help Birdie move beyond the horrors of being chained in the same place for so many years. Continued socialization is also critical for Birdie as she has spent her first year with limited interactions. Providing Birdie with opportunities to interact with other people and other animals in a controlled manner will help her develop essential skills that she has been unable to develop prior to her arrival. Training will be an essential piece of this process, as it will not only help Birdie learn to develop a healthy bond with her family, but it will also help her develop the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. Birdie is looking for a loving forever home where she can just be a dog. If this gorgeous girl sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today!

Handsome Lucas was picked up as a stray and brought to a shelter. This sweet and friendly guy, quickly won over the hearts of everyone on staff. They knew he must belong to someone. So, they waited for Lucas' family to claim him. Sadly, no one came for Lucas. Knowing that a special guy like Lucas deserved an amazing home, shelter staff reached out for rescue placement. When asked if we could help Lucas move forward, our team immediately put things in place to welcome him to the MAGSR family. 

Lucas is a friendly, playful, and intelligent guy. Unsurprisingly, he does like to see what he can get away with when being handled. He has your typical GSD shenanigans going on. Although Lucas was a stray, he is interactive and affectionate. It is obvious that this guy was well socialized with people and dogs. As a young dog, Lucas will thrive with structure, clear routines, and leadership. He is beginning to learn basic manners and how to walk on leash without pulling. However, Lucas, like all dogs, will need training. Training will not only help him bond to his forever family but it will also help him develop into the good canine citizen we know he is destined to become. Lucas is looking for a family that enjoys an interactive dog, playtime, and lots, we mean lots, of belly rubs. If this boy sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet Lucas today.

Guy and Fieri were picked up as strays in the south. When they arrived at animal services it was highly evident that they could use a little extra TLC. Underweight, dirty, and needing some medical support, shelter staff immediately moved forward to support both boys. Although the boys had clearly been through a lot together, everyone was simply amazed by how friendly and interactive Guy and Fieri are with everyone they meet. Although shelter staff did everything they could to help both boys move forward, they felt that it would be best if the boys were moved into rescue so that they could find a home with room for two. When asked if we could support Guy and Fieri in the MAGSR family, we immediately stepped forward. 

Guy and Fieri are a bonded pair. As a result, they are looking for a household that has room in their hearts and home for two dogs. Playful, interactive, and friendly with everyone, the boys bring smiles wherever they go. It is clear that these two know just how to win over the hearts and minds of everyone around. Both boys are good with other dogs. They also love people of all ages. Guy has had some additional medical needs having joined the rescue with a very intense yeast infection throughout his body. However, with time, attention, and the right medication, he has made significant strides. These guys are looking for a household that will provide them with structure, routine, and love. If your family has room for two, please ask about Guy and Fieri today!

DESCRIPTION:

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Rocky's family surrendered him to another rescue as they felt they could not provide him with the care that he needed. Although this was a very difficult decision, they wanted to give Rocky every opportunity to live his best life. The rescue that welcomed Rocky in recognized that he would have his best chance if he was transferred to a breed specific rescue. As a result, he was moved into the MAGSR family. We are so excited that we can help Rocky move forward. 

Rocky is a big, energetic guy. He is intelligent and confident as well. Although he did not live with other dogs in his original household, his foster family did have several larger dogs. Rocky did well with the other dogs in the home; however, his foster did indicate that he would correct other dogs from time to time. True to the breed, Rocky is protective of the property, particularly, when it comes to other animals. He will need to learn to look to the handler for direction. Training will go a long way with Rocky. It will not only help him develop a healthy bond with his family but it will also help him develop the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. Rocky has already lived in a household, so he knows some of the ins and outs of living in a home. However, as is true of any dog, he will likely need to brush up on those skills and adjust to the structure and routines of his forever home. 

Unfortunately, Rocky has come up heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if he had been provided with heartworm preventatives. Rocky's treatment has already begun. Treatment is expensive; however, MAGSR knows that he is more than worth the cost. Rocky will need to take it easy over the next couple of months while he undergoes treatment. This will involve rest and crate restriction. However, Rocky will be back to himself soon. Please consider donating to Rocky's care. Your support will not only help us care for this big guy, but it will also help us welcome other medical dogs into the rescue. If Rocky sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet him today.

Sweet Zinnia "the survivor" as we call her battled and rallied a rough case of parvo as a puppy. Upon getting the all clear from her vet, Zinnia made her way to the rescue and was quickly adopted out. Zinnia lived in a household and did well with everyone including the kids and another dog. Sadly, Zinnia's family could no longer care for her so MAGSR welcomed Zinnia back into rescue with open arms. Zinnia is just over a year old now and looking for her forever home. Zinnia would thrive in a home with another dog and she enjoys children. Zinnia is shy and nervous upon first meeting new people and in new situations but with a little patience and love she opens right up. Zinnia will thrive in a household where patience, structure, guidance and leadership are provided constantly. Training will go a long way with Zinnia as she is a smart girl.

DESCRIPTION:

Joyful Frannie and her siblings - Henry and Miles - were an accidental litter. Although the family that they were born into raised them in a loving home, they recognized that they could not afford three additional pups. Knowing that these babies deserved safe and loving forever homes, the difficult decision was made to surrender all three babies to rescue. We promised to find these babies amazing forever homes. 

Frannie, Henry, and Miles are absolute love bugs. They are social, interactive, and endless fun. It is highly evident that these babies have been socialized well. Although they have an excellent start, it is critical that their forever families continue to provide them with opportunities to socialize with new people and animals in varied environments. These babies are darlings; however, it is important to remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their families. Puppies are full of puppy energy which results in endless puppy antics. They will get into things, whine, and will chew on inappropriate items. With time, training, patience, and continued socialization, Frannie, Henry, and Miles will develop into good canine citizens. These babies are looking for forever homes that will commit to them for a lifetime. Could that family be you?

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely, little Dutchess was found running around an abandoned farm with another dog. Recognizing that these dogs would need help, a team of rescuers came together to trap both dogs and move them to safety. When the dogs were successfully contained, rescuers came together to enact the next piece of their plan. Both dogs were seen by a vet, given a safe and comfortable place to stay, and waited to see if someone came to claim them. Unfortunately, no one came forward to claim them. Recognizing that both dogs would be best placed in breed specific rescues, Dutchess moved forward into the MAGSR family. 

Dutchess is a loveable, playful, intelligent girl. We are so excited to help her move forward. A definite fan of other dogs, Dutchess is under the impression that all other dogs should be her furry friends. Clearly, this girl was well socialized with other animals. Although really good with other animals, Dutchess does need a small pause when meeting new people. Given a chance to adjust, she is interactive and friendly. Dutchess, like all other young shepherds, will thrive with structure, routine, and leadership. As a young dog, she will need to exercise both her body and her mind on a daily basis. Training will also be key to Dutchess' transition in her forever family. Training will not only help her form a strong and healthy bond with her family but it will also help her develop into a stable and confident adult. Dutchess is looking for an active family that will commit to her for a lifetime. Could that be with you?

Pharah is a lovely, sweet, and intelligent young girl. A couple of false starts in her life have left her a bit timid and in need of a patient and kind hand to help her move forward. Prior to her arrival in the MAGSR family, Pharah found herself caught in the middle of some difficult situations where she was acting as the family protector. As she moves forward, Pharah is looking for a family that will provide her with a safe and loving household, where she can simply be a happy dog. As is true of all GSDs, Pharah will thrive in a household with structure, leadership, and clear boundaries. Although a little timid in new environments and with new people, once given time to adjust, Pharah is interactive and affectionate. Food motivated and eager to please, Pharah will be the star pupil in training class. Training with Pharah will be a rewarding experience for the entire family as it will help her establish a healthy bond with her family while building trust and confidence. As Pharah is still rather young, she, like any GSD, requires a notable amount of physical and mental stimulus. She would love a family that can help her stimulate both her body and her mind on a daily basis. As a healthy and active girl, Pharah may also enjoy doggy sporting opportunities, such as agility work. If this beautiful girl sounds like a match for your household, ask to meet her today!

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Houston was picked up as a stray in a busy city. He was brought to a local shelter, where staff members immediately fell in love with this sweetheart. Although Houston quickly won over the hearts and minds of the shelter staff, they knew that he needed more care than they could provide. In order to find Houston the help he needed, a rescue plea went out. MAGSR knew Houston deserved a family to call his own so we stepped in to help him. 

Houston is a stable, confident and friendly guy. Although we do not know what Houston's life was like prior to his arrival at the shelter, at some point he did know love. Known to shower his handlers with affection, Houston does tend to give wiggles and kisses when first meeting new people. He's simply a lovable guy. When Houston arrived at the shelter it was highly evident that something was wrong with his front right leg. He was non weight bearing as the lower portion of his leg was hanging from the carpal area. Upon closer inspection, it was determined that Houston has a right distal radial ulna fracture. This will need to be repaired by one of our surgical specialists. Unfortunately, Houston will need to wait a few weeks as he is also suffering from a rather serious upper respiratory infection. Although he is getting the additional attention and support he needs to recover, he will need time to heal before surgery.

In addition to Houston's other medical needs, we have learned that he is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if he had been given monthly heartworm preventatives. Houston's heartworm treatment has begun. Although treatment is expensive, this sweet boy is more than worth the cost. Please consider donating to Houston's medical needs. Your generosity will help us care for Houston as well as other dogs who need medical support. Houston will need some extra support over the next few months. However, with time, patience, and an amazing medical team, he will be ready for his forever home soon. 

Updates:

Handsome Houston has been living with his foster family since the beginning of November. Due to the extent of his injuries, he has been on full crate rest since he arrived. This is essential as the bones in Houston's leg need time to heal properly. Too much pressure or activity could cause the plate in his leg to fail. Although crate restriction is not likely Houston's favorite activity, he has remained a joyful and affectionate guy throughout the past few months. With weekly vet visits to change his cast, monitor progress, and keep his skin healthy, Houston has gotten to know the staff at Paradise Animal Hospital very well. He greets them with tail wags and kisses on every visit. As sedation is needed with every visit while changing out his cast, Houston has consistently woken up from sedation with a happy, thumping tail. With some luck, Houston will hopefully be able to say goodbye to his cast forever at the end of January and begin physical therapy in February. 

As Houston's skin infections have cleared up and his healing is progressing, he is now ready to start his heartworm injections. These will begin in early January. We are excited that Houston will be able to start this next step in his heartworm treatment on time as it has taken a couple of months to get his health back up to a point where we felt comfortable moving forward. Since Houston is already on strict crate rest and is crate trained, this next piece of his healing process should be very familiar to him. With so many medical needs upon arrival, Houston has been very patient with us as we handle one medical hurdle at a time. We cannot wait for the day that Houston is cast, cone, and crate free to run and play. Please consider contributing to Houston's medical needs. This happy, energetic, and inquisitive guy is just a few more months away from being ready for a forever family.

Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Mix

Ideal/Potential Size: Large
Housebroken: No, I'm a puppy!
Obedience Trained: No, I'm a puppy!
Altered: Yes

Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: Yes
Other Dogs OK: Yes
DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Henry and his siblings - Frannie and Miles - were an accidental litter. Although the family that they were born into raised them in a loving home, they recognized that they could not afford three additional pups. Knowing that these babies deserved safe and loving forever homes, the difficult decision was made to surrender all three babies to rescue. We promised to find these babies amazing forever homes.

Henry, Frannie, and Miles are absolute love bugs. They are social, interactive, and endless fun. It is highly evident that these babies have been socialized well. Although they have an excellent start, it is critical that their forever families continue to provide them with opportunities to socialize with new people and animals in varied environments. These babies are darlings; however, it is important to remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their families. Puppies are full of puppy energy which results in endless puppy antics. They will get into things, whine, and will chew on inappropriate items. With time, training, patience, and continued socialization, Frannie, Henry, and Miles will develop into good canine citizens. These babies are looking for forever homes that will commit to them for a lifetime. Could that family be you?

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Sash was adored by her family. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond their control, they could no longer continue to care for her. Recognizing that Sash deserved a family that could love her and keep her safe, they made the difficult decision to surrender her to MAGSR. We promised Sash's family that we would find Sash an amazing forever family. 

Sash is a sweet girl. She is friendly and affectionate with people of all ages. Playful and a little goofy, Sash brings joy to those around her. Having lived in a household, Sash is familiar with the rules of living in a home. She is both house broken and crate trained. Although she will need to learn the new routines of her family, Sasha is ready to move forward. Having completed some training with her previous family, Sash knows many of her commands already. However, as is true of any new pup, Sash will benefit from additional training. This will help her not only develop into a stable and confident canine citizen, but it will also help her bond with her new family. If Sash sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet this delightful girl today. 

Updates:

We have been fostering Sash for about 6 weeks now. She is a beautiful long-haired, floppy-eared girl. People often tell us how gorgeous she is. She bonded to our family very quickly. Sash is very affectionate and loves to snuggle. She is very gentle with our 6 year old son. Sash can be protective (of all of us) when other dogs get close, especially if we give those dogs attention. Due to this jealousy, she would do best as an only pet. Sash did not have much experience walking on a leash when we got her, but now she is generally very good, but will occasionally pull (and she is very strong). She loves to chew on bones and play with balls. Sash is extremely smart and food and treat motivated, which should make training fairly easy. Due to a skin condition, Sash requires regular baths with medicated shampoo. MAGSR has covered her veterinary care and her skin has vastly improved with us dutifully following her course of treatment. If you have room in your home and in your heart, ask to meet Sash today.

DESCRIPTION:

Wiggly little Pixel was picked up all alone in a busy city. When animal control officers brought this little cutie into a shelter, staff members immediately fell in love with this little guy. Sweet and so very loveable, staff members recognized that this boy deserved a loving forever home but would likely be most successful if placed through a rescue. When asked if we could welcome Pixel into the MAGSR family, we immediately stepped forward. 

Pixel is an absolute love. He has clearly learned the joy of toys and wiggles every time he sees them. Pixel is particularly thrilled to play ball and is hoping his forever family likes to play ball too. Although Pixel is joy in a little package, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy energy which results in endless puppy antics. They will get into things, whine, and will chew on inappropriate items. With time, training, patience, and socialization, Pixel will develop into the good canine citizen we know he is destined to become. Pixel is looking for a forever home that will commit to him for a lifetime. Could that family be you?

Good With Kids: Unknown
Good With Cats: Unknown
Other Dogs OK: Yes, with proper introduction
DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Andrew was picked up as a stray and brought to a shelter. Although he waited for a family to come and claim him, no one stepped forward. Shelter staff loved Andrew's playful personality; however, as the shelter was overcapacity, they began reaching out to rescues for help. When MAGSR heard about Andrew, we knew he would be a great addition to the MAGSR family. 

Andrew is in many ways your typical, young, energetic shepherd. He is curious about the world and is learning about the joys of toys. Although we do not know anything about Andrew's past, it is clear that he is ready to move forward with his future. As is true of all young shepherds, Andrew will be most successful in a household with structure, routine, and consistent leadership. This will not only help him adjust to his new household, but it will also help him develop an understanding of the expectations of living in a home. In addition, Andrew will benefit greatly from training; training will help him develop the skills and strategies he needs to develop into a good canine citizen. 

Unfortunately, we have learned that Andrew is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if he had been given monthly heartworm preventatives. Andrew's heartworm treatment has begun. Although treatment is expensive, this handsome guy is definitely worth the cost. Please consider donating to Andrew's care. Your generosity will help us not only support Andrew throughout his heartworm treatment, but it will also help us support other dogs with medical needs. Although Andrew will need to take it slow over the next few months while he undergoes treatment, this will give him time to adjust to his new environment. Andrew is looking for a forever family that will commit to him for a lifetime. Could that family be you?

DESCRIPTION:

Anna and her siblings, Jodie and Teddy Bear, were brought to a shelter when their owner passed away. Unfortunately, it was apparent that their owner had been struggling to care for these dogs for a while. Fearful and avoidant in the shelter environment, this little family needed out and fast. Knowing we could provide this family with the life and love they deserve, MAGSR welcomed them to the family.

Anna is a sweet little lady but she is extremely timid. Somewhat hand-shy and avoidant, Anna does well with a patient but confident handler who will give her time to trust. Once comfortable and with time to decompress, she will warm up for love and attention. Due to the condition in which she arrived, Anna has needed a little extra TLC. She arrived sick with an URI, severe ear infection, and dirty from lack of care. Fortunately, our amazing vetting partners were able to help Anna get the relief she needed. We are continuing to work with them to make sure that Anna has everything she needs as she moves forward. With time, patience, and a little support, Anna is making steady progress. Anna will thrive in a household that will provide structure, routine, and patience. Due to her history, she will likely benefit from a calm and confident household.

Unfortunately, we have discovered that Anna is heartworm positive. This condition could have been avoided had she been provided monthly heartworm preventatives. We have already begun Anna's treatment. The cost of her entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but this lovely girl is beyond worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Jodie's treatment. Your generosity will help us save her and other dogs with medical needs. Although Anna will need to take it slow over the next few months while she undergoes treatment, this will give her time to adjust to her new environment and meet with success in her forever home. Anna is looking for a forever family that will provide her with the structure, patience, and love that she so clearly deserves. Could this be with you?

Updates:

Ms. Anna is a special girl.  She is very sweet but very shy, and she generally prefers dogs to people – so she’s pretty smart!   She’s been in her foster home for a few months getting over her heartworm, and she has come a very long way from the distant, tail-tucked, and fearful girl that first arrived with us.  She’s needed the time to get comfortable with her human foster, while in the interim she relied on her foster sister, to whom she bonded almost instantly.  Anna has a different way of communicating with people than folks expect from a dog.  Her positive signals can be subtle and easy to miss or misinterpret, and she prefers the familiar, routine, and relies on the confidence of her “big sister,” to be comfortable and happy.  She is a lovely animal, and it is a pleasure to see her relax and enjoy her life, and she is ready to move on.  But Anna is not for everybody.  Anna will need a sensitive and patient person, who ideally has a sweet confident dog, that can give Anna the space and time she’ll need to build the human bond.  It will be easier for her going forward, now that she’s learned to trust someone.  But her new family will need to love Anna on her terms.  Please reach out if you feel you can give Anna the special love she needs.

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Sissy is a survivor. She was picked up as a stray in the south with an embedded collar, missing fur, and highly emaciated. Animal control officers quickly recognized that Sissy had endured a significant amount of pain and suffering. However, despite all that she had experienced, Sissy remains a sweet girl. Officers worked hard to begin to help Sissy move forward while also looking for rescue placement for this girl. When MAGSR heard about Sissy's story, we immediately welcomed her to the family. 

Sissy is beautiful, intelligent girl. Due to her history, she is unsure when placed in new environments and with new people. Sissy needs time to adjust to new situations. With time, patience, and routine, Sissy will warm up to her people. However, she will meet with most success with a stable and confident household. Still learning that people can be kind and caring, it is important that her forever family recognize that a go slow approach is necessary as Sissy moves forward. Training and continued socialization are imperative as Sissy moves forward. Not only will training help Sissy bond to her new family but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. If Sissy sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet this sweetheart today.

DESCRIPTION:

Jojo and Chloe were confiscated due to neglect. When they arrived at a shelter emaciated and unclean, shelter staff immediately started working to make these two sweethearts comfortable. Although steps were taken to help Jojo and Chloe begin to decompress in safety, staff knew that the shelter environment was not the right place to help this pair move forward. In order to help them find the comfort and safety they deserved, a rescue plea was issued. As soon as we heard about Jojo and Chloe, our team began putting together plans to help this amazing pair move forward. 

Although these lovely survivors have endured hardship and neglect, Jojo and Chloe are an amazing pair. Jojo is the more confident of the two. He is sweet, interactive and simply wants love. Chloe is a little more timid than Jojo. Her lovely personality comes out with a little time. Both pups have deep, warm eyes that simply pull at your soul. Since joining the MAGSR family, Jojo and Chloe have already begun to get the care and love that they deserve. They have seen our vet and are beginning to move forward.

The information above applies to Jojo, the only diffences being that Chloe is a bit smaller at 50 lbs and younger at about 7 years of age.

They have also been placed in a loving foster family that is showing them the joys of living in a safe, warm, and comfortable home where all of their needs are met. Although we are still getting to know Jojo and Chloe, we do know that these two deserve a special forever family that has room in their hearts for two. If your family is looking for a gentle and loving pair of dogs, please ask to meet Jojo and Chloe today!

DESCRIPTION:

Cute, little Aveza was picked up as a stray and brought to a shelter. Once in their care, shelter staff learned that this lovely little girl had been passed around quite a bit in her short life. This can be very difficult for any dog, particularly, a shepherd, as they thrive with structure, leadership, and routine. Recognizing that Aveza would be most successful if placed within a rescue where she could find an experienced household that will help her meet with success. When asked to welcome Aveza to the MAGSR, we immediately welcomed her to the family.

Aveza is germanic for "desired". This incredible girl's story has touched the hearts of many people. She is truly desired. However, young shepherds, who have not had consistency are best placed in committed families that are experienced with the breed. Aveza is a smart, energetic, and intelligent girl. She will need an active family that can exercise both her body and her mind on a daily basis. She will thrive in an environment with clear boundaries and routines. It is critical that Aveza's family continue to provide structured opportunities for socialization. This is important as Aveza develops a healthy response to people, animals, and activities within her environment. Training is essential as it will not only help Aveza bond with her new family but it will also help her develop into the stable and confident adult that we know she is destined to become. If your family is ready to provide Aveza with the safety, love, and consistency that she deserves, ask to meet this lovely girl today.

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Fred was confiscated due to cruelty and neglect. Due to court proceedings, this good looking guy waited for several months at a local shelter waiting for his chance at finding a family that would love and care for him for a lifetime. Once given the green light to move forward, shelter staff felt that Fred would have his best chance at finding his forever home through a rescue. When asked if we could help Fred find the perfect forever family, we immediately stepped forward. 

Fred is a very handsome guy who was clearly not cared for early in life. Undersocialized with people, he will require time and patience to adjust to new people and situations. Fred prefers a calm, slow handler at first as he gets his bearings. However, given time, structure, and leadership, he does begin to open up. As a young dog, Fred will thrive with routine. He will benefit greatly from training as this will not only help him bond to his forever family, but it will also help him develop the stability and confidence that all dogs need. Fred is looking for a forever home that will provide him with the love and safety he so clearly deserves. If your household sounds like the right match for Fred, ask to meet this boy today.

Cutie little Toby did not have an easy start in life. He was mistreated by his owner and then abandoned in the south. Fortunately, another rescue heard about Toby's plight and started putting plans in place to help him. Although they were able to start moving him forward, unfortunately, Toby was not able to move into the safety of a rescue before he was attacked by another dog. Medical support was secured quickly and Toby was moved into MAGSR's care. 

For such a young guy, Toby has endured a lot of trauma. He is still learning that there are kind people in the world who will treat him the way he should have been treated since the beginning. Recognizing that Toby needed and deserved additional support in order to develop the confidence and stability that he needs to move forward, Toby is working with one of our trainers in a board and train program. 

Toby has been with the trainer for a few weeks and he is doing amazing. They quickly learned he has an incredible ability for tracking or nose work. He would be a phenomenal working dog or competition sport nose work dog. He is currently learning to be off leash and they are continuing to explore his tracking abilities. Toby would do best with an active family that would enjoy putting his talents to work whether for sport or competition. He will thrive with continued training and structure as he is a medium to high energy boy! If he sounds like the pup for you please put your application in!

Handsome Adonis was picked up as a stray in the south. When his microchip was run it became clear that Adonis had a bit of a history. He had been abandoned, adopted, and abandoned a second time. However, even with all of the upheaval in his life, Adonis remains a friendly and interactive guy. When no one came to claim Adonis, several rescue groups came together to help this guy move forward.

Adonis is a big, handsome, interactive guy. He does well with new people and portrays a stable and confident persona. Not only is Adonis a fan of people but he also enjoys the company of other dogs. Although we know that Adonis has previously lived in a home, we do not have any additional information about his experiences living in a household. Adonis is looking for a stable, confident and structured home. As is true of all shepherds, Adonis will benefit greatly from training.
