Current Size: 50 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 60 - 65 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Yes

Other Dogs OK: Some, with proper introduction
DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Sierra was picked up as a stray. When she arrived at a shelter it was highly evident that this girl had been struggling to survive. Sierra was emaciated and infested with fleas that had caused a skin infection. As shepherds often struggle in shelters, Sierra needed help and fast. Vet care was quickly provided and this little lady immediately moved into MAGSR's care. Sierra enjoys the company of people and other dogs; however, she lacks confidence which can cause her to overbond to her people. As she moves forward, Sierra will benefit greatly from training; it will not only help her bond appropriately to her new family, but it will also help her learn to take cues from the handler. She will meet with greatest success in a household that has experience with the breed. We are still getting to know Sierra. As we know more about her, we will post updates. If Sierra sounds like a good match for your household, please ask to meet her today. 

Updates:

Sierra has been a foster home for a few days and has proven she is a loving and faithful companion with the people she trusts.  She takes time to warm up to new people and does not like being approached but is highly food motivated and will come to you for that.  Sierra is an affectionate, intelligent, loyal girl who wants nothing more than to be with her person.  On the first day I received kisses and she was on her back enjoying belly rubs and all the pets!  She is housebroken and sleeps quietly through the night.  She does not get on furniture or chew things she should not.  She loves to play tug, go for walks, indulge in a marrow bone, and get lots of attention.  She is a sweet and sassy 1 yr old GSD and likes to romp around but gets overly excited and not quite sure how to play but with time that will improve. She will need time to adjust to other dogs and does ok if on leash and being monitored at this time.  Sierra is incredibly intelligent and has adapted quickly to her new living situation she knows sit, down, and come. She will do best in a home with GSD experience, one that is familiar with fear reactivity, and one that will provide a structured environment.  She has a proclivity to barrier reactivity and overly bonding to handler and can exhibit a negative reaction. Sierra will be attending board and train soon which will help work on her insecurities and become the amazing and obedient companion she can be.  This will be a huge plus for any adopter since Sierra's training package will come with her at adoption and the adopter will follow up with the private and group lessons that are paid for by MAGSR and if there are any setbacks the adopter can go back to training free of charge for the life of the dog!  Sierra continues to make progress everyday and an update will be posted upon completion of the board and train.  Sierra is a diamond in the ruff and will make the perfect addition to the right family.

,

Howdy folks, I have completed my board and train and am ready to WOW my future family with my skillz.  During training I met some cool humans who reminded me that being confident is good and that will benefit me in the long haul but being overly demanding and pushy is not the way to get what I want.  I had previously fought the leash and commands but now I know through consistency, repetition, leash pressure, hand signals and verbal commands what is being asked of me.  When communication is clear to me from my handler I excel.  Another thing I learned while at training was that being alone is okay and that I do not need to throw myself into a tizzy when people leave me.  Actually, I can be content to just chew my favorite bully stick or marrow bone in peace.  I still require a crate to help make me feel safe but it's not a bad place and I know now that bad things will not happen to me.  As for other dogs, I tolerate them but being the dominant dog that I am, if they do try to overstep the boundary, I react negatively.  This is why I do prefer to be the only child..... I mean dog.  Speaking of children I'm not sure what these creatures are but they make loud and unpredictable movements which scare me and when I'm afraid I revert back to my old habit of reacting.  At my young impressionable age I was not shown kindness or socialized with people and I'm just now figuring out that these humans can be good to me.  I am a snuggle bug but I will not get on furniture, I will however, lean into you and immediately roll on my back for belly rubs. I do that thing I hear the humans talk about, bonding.  I'm the epitome of the velcro dog and in a home environment I just need to know the human is in charge and I can follow their lead.  My intelligence, loyalty, confidence and affectionate personality are what draw humans to me but you need to know what your doing, or at least that's what I overheard the trainer humans say.  I will give you my very best when clearly communicated to, I need a handler who can give me structure, time, consistency and love.  When you adopt me you have the unique opportunity to complete my private training lessons and group lessons free of charge.  The quote "with great power, comes great responsibility" and that is precisely what you are being given with me.  Are you up to the challenge?

Ranger

ADOPTED 07/12/2021!

Ranger
RangerRangerRanger
Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 5 years 3 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 65 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 70 lbs
Housebroken: Likely
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

Good With Kids: Yes, older kids
Good With Cats: Unknown
Other Dogs OK: Yes
DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Ranger was brought to a local vet as his family decided that they wanted him euthanized. It was evident that Ranger needed some medical care for an untreated skin infection; however, staff members quickly recognized that this delightful guy deserved a chance at life with a family that would commit to him for a lifetime. Fortunately, they were able to convince Ranger's family to surrender him to them. Once safe, the vet staff immediately began addressing Ranger's needs. 

Ranger had untreated skin issues that had caused a lot of hair-loss, flaking, and itchiness. It is believed that everything began with an allergy that when untreated and resulted in a secondary yeast/fungal infection that got out of hand. He has been given a course of antibiotics, steroids, and medicated baths which have already begun to have a positive impact. In addition to skin issues, sweet Ranger also had significant bilateral ear infections that have since been treated. Although his appearance may not match his impressive personality right now, we fully expect him to regrow his lovely coat. 

Please consider donating to Ranger's care.

A stable and friendly guy, Ranger seems to enjoy the company of his people. He is a playful guy and will happily fetch a ball and drop it for another throw. A big fan of squeaky toys, Ranger smiles while he plays. Although he is still a little sensitive around his ears, which is likely due to the severity of his ear infections, Ranger loves attention and happily rewards his people with kisses. Once comfortable, he will ask for belly rubs as well. As a social guy, Ranger can be vocal at first when left alone but he quiets down quickly. Having had the opportunity to meet dogs of a variety of sizes and temperaments, Ranger's confident and easy-going personality wins everyone over. Ranger will need to continue to have regular baths to help his skin clear up and will need to be kept on a low ingredient food in order to keep his allergies in check. This sweet boy is looking for a family that will commit to loving him for a lifetime. Could that be with you?

Thunder's family loved him greatly. However, due to circumstances beyond their control, they were unable to continue to care for him. As a result, they surrendered Thunder to MAGSR so that we could find him a safe and loving forever home. 

Thunder is a big, beautiful guy. He enjoys the company of his people and is always excited to meet a new friend. Having lived in a household, Thunder understands the ins and outs of living in a home. However, as is true with any new dog, he will need a little review in his new home. Already knowing a few commands, Thunder is eager to please particularly, if food or toys are involved. Training will go a long way with Thunder. It will not only provide him with the skills needed to meet with success in his new home, but it will also help him bond to his new family. Thunder is looking for a household that will provide him with the structure, routine, and leadership that all shepherds crave.

Frix was picked up as a stray in the south. Shelter staff knew that this little guy had limited options and began working hard to help him find rescue placement. When asked if we could bring Frix to safety, we immediately welcomed him to the MAGSR family. 

 

Frix is a delightful little guy. His beautiful eyes simply melt your heart. As is true of all puppies, Frix is playful, energetic, and full of endless cuteness. He will quickly win over his forever family with his amazing personality. We have begun to socialize Frix with people and other animals. However, it is imperative that Frix's new family continues this process as it will help him develop into a stable adult. Although Frix is as cute as can be, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics, they get into things, and they will chew on inappropriate iems. With patience, time, and training, Frix will develop into the good canine citizen that we know he is destined to be. If this little honey sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet him today.

Ideal/Potential Size: 75 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No

Good With Kids: Yes, older kids
Good With Cats: Likely
Other Dogs OK: Some, with proper introduction
DESCRIPTION:

Annika is a sweet girl. She has been living in a foster home where she has had the opportunity to interact with a variety of people and other dogs. Although Annika enjoys the company of other dogs, she prefers to live with a smaller pack rather than a larger pack. The energy and busy nature of a large pack seems to be stressful for her. Annika's favorite furry foster sibling in her previous foster home was a large male who she could be found cuddling next to when sleeping. Annika is housebroken and does understand the crate. However, she prefers to be out and about. This is something she will need to earn in her forever home. As is true of all shepherds, Annika will meet with success in a household that will provide her with structure, routine, and leadership. Training will go a long way for Annika as it will help her not only bond to her new family, but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. If sweet Annika sounds like the right match for your family, please ask to meet her today. 

Updates:

Annika is an affectionate dog and settled into her foster home without difficulty. In her early physics experiments, she quickly learned that going up the stairs also meant learning how to go down the stairs, and now she navigates these without any issues. She is a very easy and responsive leash walker, and loves her trips around the neighborhood. Today she barked at a sculpture, and a passerby commented that she’s evidently an art critic, too. She will move heaven and earth to earn a pupperoni treat. She snoozes happily in her crate, dreaming of catching a squirrel one day.  She is the biggest fan of belly rubs, all the belly rubs.  Does Annika sound like the dog for you?

,

Two year old Annika is sweet-tempered, easy going and always ready for a walk. She is easy on leash walks and responsive when given directions. She learns quickly when pepperoni treats are on hand. Annika happily snoozes at home waiting for the end of the work day; she likes her crate and is fully house trained. She is well behaved in cafes but her favorite place is on the trails in Rock Creek park, where she hops through creeks and dreams of catching squirrels. Annika loves meeting people but is timid meeting other dogs; while she has had doggie friends in the past, future fur friends will have to be introduced with care. She stays calm with grooming, nail clipping, thunderstorms, and is a great car rider. She has not shown any food aggression. Annika is a fun and affectionate companion with a lovely personality. Could she be the right dog for you?

Obedience Trained: No
Altered: No

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

Sweet Abel was picked up as a stray in the south. Although he waited for his family to claim him, no one came looking. As it was felt that Abel would have his best chance at finding a safe and loving forever home in another region, a rescue plea went out. MAGSR answered the call.

Abel is an absolute honey. He was clearly well socialized before he arrived at the shelter. A fan of people of all ages as well as dogs of all sizes, Abel brings joy to everyone he meets. Although Abel is a good sized boy already, he seems to be developing some leash manners already. As is true of any young dog, Abel will thrive with structure, routine and guidance. Training will go a long way with this handsome guy as it will not only help him bond with his new family, but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen.

Unfortunately, we have learned that Abel is heartworm positive. This condition could have been avoided had he been provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. MAGSR has begun his heartworm treatment and Abel is doing well. The cost of his entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Abel is clearly worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Abels treatment. Your generosity will help us save him and other dogs with medical needs. Although Abel will need to take it slow over the next few months, he will be back to full strength once his treatment is finished. If your household is looking for a sweet, playful guy, please ask to meet Abel today.

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Zinnia and her little family were dumped and forced to fend for themselves. Fortunately, a good samaritan found this little group of puppies and quickly brought them to the safety of a shelter. Although they presented as typical puppies on arrival, unfortunately, within a few days these babies broke with parvo. This horrifying virus takes so many young lives too soon. An immediate plea was sent out for help. With the support of an amazing team of veterinarians and a kind donor, MAGSR was able to get this little family the help they needed. Against the odds, all three little fighters survived. 

Having survived parvo, Zinnia is a super puppy. She cannot ever contract this horrible disease again. Ready to move onto a life of love, cuddles, and safety, Zinnia cannot wait to meet her forever family.

Although Zinnia is beyond sweet, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require an endless amount of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics, get into things, and chew on inappropriate items. With time, patience, guidance, and training, Zinnia will develop into the good canine citizen we know she is destined to become. If Zinnia sounds like the right match for your family, please ask to meet her today. 

Updates:

Zinnia is waiting patiently for her permanent invitation to your family cookouts! She is so smart and incredibly kind in every aspect. She bonds fiercely to her human and will do whatever is asked of her; like leave a pile of cookies alone for a cute picture. She is a playful girl who loves to hide her toys to save them for a rainy day. We’ve been practicing her potty training skills and she’s almost got them mastered!! She knows basic commands and listens well for a baby dog. She loves playing in the water so bathing is easy and she doesn’t mind getting a pedicure. She has done excellent around babies and is gentle so would love her own kids to love!

Other Dogs OK: Yes
DESCRIPTION:

Sir Albert and his siblings were part of an accidental litter. His family loved him greatly and took good care of him and his siblings. However, as the puppies grew older, it became difficult to take care of so many dogs. Recognizing that Sir Albert and his siblings would be better able to receive the care and attention they deserved if they were re-homed, Sir Albert's owner made the difficult decision to surrender the group of siblings to MAGSR. We promised that we would find each member of the family safe and loving forever homes. 

Sir Albert is a love. He was well socialized in his home with kids and other dogs. However, his family struggled to find time to socialize him in the community. As a result, Sir Albert can be a little timid with new people and in new places. Given time, patience, and guidance, Sir Albert will develop the confidence he needs outside of the household. Just like any young dog, Sir Albert will thrive with structure, routine and training. Training will help him to not only bond with his new family but also develop into the stable adult we know he is destined to be.

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Lady and her brother Roscoe were part of a litter of puppies that were bred for sale. When she did not catch the eye of potential buyers, her owner kept her on the property for potential breeding when she was older. Although given food and water, Lady's owner did not provide her with adequate shelter, socialization, or vetting care. When her living conditions were discovered, another rescuer worked with Lady's owner to have her and her brother surrendered to MAGSR.

Lady is in many ways your typical young GSD. She is playful, curious, and energetic. Although she does need a little time to warm up to new people. Lady's delightful personality quickly shines through. She easily wins you over with her puppy antics. As Lady was previously kept outdoors with a metal shed for shelter, she has not had the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of a comfortable household and a soft bed. Her new family will need to slowly introduce her to the household so that she has time to adjust. As is true with all dogs, Lady will thrive in a household where she has structure, routine, and leadership. This will help her develop the stability and confidence that all dogs need to be successful. Daily exercise and interaction will also contribute to Lady's success. If this lovely little girl sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today!

DESCRIPTION:

Sally and her Cars Puppies were rescued in the south by another group. As they wanted to do right by this lovely family, they began reaching out to other groups who would be able to support the family until they were ready to find forever homes of their own. When asked to welcome this family into the MAGSR family, we immediately said yes. 

Chip Gearings is a bundle of energy and joy. He is cute as a button and brings happiness to everyone around him. Well socialized in his foster home, Chip Gearings is a match for a household with kids, cats, or other dogs. Although Chip Gearings' foster family has given him an excellent start, it is imperative that his new family continues to keep Chip Gearings well socialized. This will help him develop into a stable adult. Although Chip Gearings is absolutely adorable, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics, they get into things, and they will chew on inappropriate items. With time, patience, and training, Chip Gearings will develop into the good canine citizen that we know he is destined to become. If this little guy sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet him today.

Updates:

Chip is a very sweet boy. He is a Velcro dog for sure. He is great with my young (2 and 3 yo) grandchildren. Living with  his foster he is getting crate trained, he will bark/cry for a few minutes before he settles down.  He sleeps through the night but wakes up early as is normal because he is a puppy and has to go potty.  He is making strides with housebreaking and walking on a leash. If you are looking for an adorable sweet boy who loves his human, this guy is for you.

DESCRIPTION:

D.W.'s family abandoned her in a culvert. Fortunately, an amazing family heard her cries and rescued her. Although they quickly recognized that D.W. is a very special girl, they knew that she needed a family that could provide her with the time and attention she deserved. As a result, they started reaching out to the rescue community for help. Fortunately, the right people heard of D.W.'s need and contacted MAGSR. The rest is history.

D.W.'s first two years likely lacked the structure, consistency, and attention that all shepherds crave. Fortunately, once in MAGSR's care, D.W. was placed in an amazing foster home that worked with her on a daily basis. Living with a pack of dogs of varied ages and sizes, D.W. had the opportunity to begin developing social skills in a controlled manner. Additional opportunities to socialize in a wide variety of environments were also provided. This has helped D.W. more effectively interact with new people in a variety of situations. Although D.W. is moving forward with a solid foundation of skills, it will be necessary that her new family continue to work with her to further support her social skills with humans and dogs. D.W. is a lovely and active dog. She will thrive in a household that will exercise both her body and her mind on a daily basis. Training is an essential next step for D.W. as it will not only help her bond to her forever family but it will also help her develop into a stable and confident canine citizen. If D.W. sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet this special girl today.

Other Dogs OK: Yes
DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Harry and his housemates, Megan and Diana, were confiscated from their owner.  Although all three dogs get along with one another, it appears that Harry and Diana are closer to one another. They have relied on one another for comfort and safety and clearly enjoy the companionship of another dog. When confiscated, it was clear to animal control officers that these three were not well cared for or socialized around other people. As a result, they all require some time to adjust to new people and situations.

When provided with patience, confidence, and leadership, Harry's interactive and affectionate personality begins to shine. It is simply amazing how a dog that has gone through so much is willing to give people another chance to earn his trust.  In the same circumstances, Diana becomes more interactive and begins to trust her handlers. She does best when given the opportunity to warm up slowly to new people. Having survived a difficult situation, we have been impressed with her continued attempts to trust people. With the right family, Harry and Diana will excel. As is true of all dogs, Harry and Diana will benefit from training. 

We are confident that with the right family, Harry & Diana will excel. Both of them, like all dogs, will benefit from training. This will not only help him bond to their new family, but it will also help them develop into good canine citizens. If your household sounds like the right match for this incredible pair, please ask to meet them today.

 

Updates:

After arriving in MAGSR's care, it became quite apparent to our volunteers that Harry and Diana would be best placed in a home together. These two beautiful pups have survived a life of neglect. However, they seem to find comfort and safety when together. Each of them contributes to their relationship and helps the other learn to adjust to new people and situations. Although it takes some time and patience to gain their trust, Harry and Diana are definitely food motivated. High-value treats are always welcome and seem to help when building trust. Once comfortable, Harry and Diana enjoy affection and definitely have the "shepherd lean" down pat. If your family has room for two, please consider opening your home to this special pair. 

,

Harry and Diana are housebroken, crate trained, they don't get on furniture or beg for food.  They enjoy their daily walks but can't wait to get back home.  As they have become more comfortable in their foster home they are building more confidence and have started to play.  Harry's safe place is in his crate and that is where he likes to go to sleep at night but in the morning his fosters find him sleeping on the rug next to Diana.    They share their dinner and breakfast by going from one bowl to the other.  Diana likes all the attention, if Harry is getting some lovin, she will come over and try to bump him out of the way.  These two are very laid back, if you are looking for a loving bonded pair of dogs contact us.  We would love to have you meet them.

DESCRIPTION:

Annika is a sweet girl. She has been living in a foster home where she has had the opportunity to interact with a variety of people and other dogs. Although Annika enjoys the company of other dogs, she prefers to live with a smaller pack rather than a larger pack. The energy and busy nature of a large pack seems to be stressful for her. Annika's favorite furry foster sibling in her previous foster home was a large male who she could be found cuddling next to when sleeping. Annika is housebroken and does understand the crate. However, she prefers to be out and about. This is something she will need to earn in her forever home. As is true of all shepherds, Annika will meet with success in a household that will provide her with structure, routine, and leadership. Training will go a long way for Annika as it will help her not only bond to her new family, but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. If sweet Annika sounds like the right match for your family, please ask to meet her today. 

Updates:

Annika is an affectionate dog and settled into her foster home without difficulty. In her early physics experiments, she quickly learned that going up the stairs also meant learning how to go down the stairs, and now she navigates these without any issues. She is a very easy and responsive leash walker, and loves her trips around the neighborhood. Today she barked at a sculpture, and a passerby commented that she’s evidently an art critic, too. She will move heaven and earth to earn a pupperoni treat. She snoozes happily in her crate, dreaming of catching a squirrel one day.  She is the biggest fan of belly rubs, all the belly rubs.  Does Annika sound like the dog for you?

,

Two year old Annika is sweet-tempered, easy going and always ready for a walk. She is easy on leash walks and responsive when given directions. She learns quickly when pepperoni treats are on hand. Annika happily snoozes at home waiting for the end of the work day; she likes her crate and is fully house trained. She is well behaved in cafes but her favorite place is on the trails in Rock Creek park, where she hops through creeks and dreams of catching squirrels. Annika loves meeting people but is timid meeting other dogs; while she has had doggie friends in the past, future fur friends will have to be introduced with care. She stays calm with grooming, nail clipping, thunderstorms, and is a great car rider. She has not shown any food aggression. Annika is a fun and affectionate companion with a lovely personality. Could she be the right dog for you?

Baby Girl and her siblings were part of an accidental litter. Her family loved her greatly and took good care of her and her siblings. However, as the puppies grew older, it became difficult to take care of so many dogs. Recognizing that Baby Girl and her siblings would be better able to receive the care and attention they deserved if they were rehomed, Baby Girl's owner made the difficult decision to surrender the group of siblings to MAGSR. We promised that we would find each member of the family safe and loving forever homes. 

 

Baby Girl is a sweetheart. She was well socialized in her home with kids and other dogs. However, her family struggled to find time to socialize her in the community. As a result, Baby Girl can be a little timid with new people and in new places. Given time, patience, and guidance, Baby Girl will develop the confidence she needs outside of the household. Just like any young dog, Baby Girl will thrive with structure, routine and training.

DESCRIPTION:

Zane was surrendered by his family as an elderly member of the family became ill and required daily support in the home, Zane struggled with the constant in and out of strangers in his home. Recognizing that this change in situation is likely a long term, his family made the decision to surrender him to MAGSR. 

Zane is an intelligent and energetic guy. He has lived previously with older children and dogs his size or larger. Having previously lived in a household, Zane knows many of the basic household rules already. Crate trained, housebroken, and knows several commands, Zane is a smart and driven guy. Although he enjoys moving sneakers about the house, Zane doesn't destroy items in the household but does enjoy rearranging them.  As is true of most shepherds, Zane can be protective of his household and needs time and proper introductions to strangers when they are in his household.

When Zane entered the rescue, it was very evident that he was handshy due to abuse. This caused him to react quickly to hand movements. Recognizing that Zane would need additional support in order to move forward, MAGSR has been working with K9 Koncepts to support Zane over the last few months. During this time, Zane has benefitted from a board and train program where he has learned all of his commands and has been working to desensitize him to hand movements. Zane is best suited for a home with previous GSD experience. His new family would continue working with K9 Koncepts to learn about his training and commands. This training is already covered by MAGSR. Zane is looking for a family that will provide him with the guidance, leadership, and safety that all dogs deserve. Is your home the right fit?

Sweet Moose lived with a family. Unfortunately, they were unable to provide him with basic vetting care which resulted in Moose contracting parvo. As this horrifying disease takes so many lives too soon, Moose needed help and fast. Although Moose's family loved him, they could not afford his care and brought him to a shelter. Fortunately, the shelter found the resources to get Moose the life saving care he needed. Having overcome the odds, shelter staff knew that Moose deserved a loving forever home. When they reached out to MAGSR for help, we immediately stepped forward. 

Moose is a love. However, he was undersocialized in his previous home. As a result, Moose needs a little time to warm up to new people and new situations. Socialization is critical as it helps build stable and confident dogs. Moose's forever family will need to provide him with opportunities to learn about the world around him. Training will be key to Moose's success. Not only will it help him bond to his new family, but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. With patience, structure, and routine, Moose will thrive. If you are looking for a playful guy, ask to meet Moose today.

DESCRIPTION:

Kaito's family loved him dearly. However, due to a sudden change in circumstances, they were no longer able to care for him. As Kaito's family wanted him to find a safe and loving forever home, they surrendered him to a rescue. 

Kaito is a big, interactive, and energetic guy. Having previously lived in a busy household with small dogs and older kids, Kaito enjoys the company of others. However, he is a big guy so he would be best suited for older children. Kaito is social and enjoys the company of other people; however, he needs time to adjust to new people. He is responsive to calm and confident handlers. Kaito's family clearly did a nice job giving him opportunities to socialize with other dogs and meet with success in new situations. Kaito, just like all GSDs, will thrive when provided with structure, leadership, and routine. Food and toy motivated, Kaito loves to learn new skills and will be a star in training class. Starting training with Kaito will help him not only bond with his new family, but it will also help him develop into the good canine citizen we know he is destined to be. Kaito is looking for a forever family that will provide him with a safe and loving forever home as well as a lot of belly rubs. Could that be with you?

Updates:

Kaito is thriving in his foster home!  He has proven to be a happy go lucky boy who loves the company of other dogs and humans.  He finds solace in his crate and will go in there just to relax with the door left open. He sleeps through the night quietly in his crate and waits patiently in the morning to be let outside to potty.  He takes treats gently and has not shown any food or toy aggression.  At first Kaito did not know how to do the steps in the house but is such a smart boy that in a 24 hours period had them mastered with some coaxing with cheese. He loves to run around the yard with the other dogs and is learning how to play fetch.  He loves things that squeak and is especially fond of his pink ball and orange chicken.  In the house he will play with his stuffed toys by tossing them in the air and trying to catch them or dropping them in your lap for you to throw.  Speaking of lap he thinks he is a lap dog and will try to squeeze into whatever space you give him.  From time to time he may require a stern no if he gets overly excited and starts mouthing which has improved greatly in his time in a foster home.  He loves to be pet and while doing so he will slowly slink down your leg and onto his back for belly rubs.  He engages politely with the other 2 resident dogs and is learning how to play with them.  Kaito is welcoming to people who come in the house but from a distance will bark to let them know he is there protecting the house.  Since Kaito is a big boy and strong he will need someone who can handle him.  Kaito wants nothing more than to find a family to share his joy and love with. Ask to meet Kaito today!

Handsome Murphy was found hanging out at a high school with his buddy Millie. Both dogs were brought to a shelter where they waited for a family to claim them.

Murphy is a playful and energetic guy. He is friendly and good with both people and other dogs. However, he can be vocal with new dogs when first meeting them. As a young guy, Murphy has energy to burn and will do best in a home that can exercise his mind and his body on a daily basis. Arriving as a stray, we do not know what Murphy knows about living in a household. However, he seems to be a quick learner who wants to please his handler. As is true of all dogs, Murphy will thrive when provided with guidance, leadership, and consistency. Training will help him adjust to his new family as well as develop the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. Murphy is looking for a forever family that will love and care for him for a lifetime. Could that be with you?

DESCRIPTION:

Camelot had a rough start in life. He was purchased to be a guard dog and kept outside. Living his life on a chain, Camelot would escape from time to time. His punishment was days in a crate outside with little to no food or water. Fortunately, a kind person recognized that Camelot needed help and fast. They stepped forward to get this sweet guy to safety. Although his rescuers did everything they could to give Camelot a fresh start, these good samaritans recognized that Camelot would have his best chance at finding the perfect forever home if he were placed with a rescue. When asked if we could help Camelot move forward, we were happy to welcome him into the MAGSR family. 

Camelot is a big, beautiful boy. Although he has suffered in his past, he is ready to move forward with a loving family who will always provide him with a safe home. A social guy, Camelot enjoys the company of people and other dogs. As is true of all young dogs, Camelot has good energy and would love a family to help him exercise both his body and his mind on a daily basis. Camelot loves to play ball and hopes his new family does too. He will keep you entertained with his antics. True of all shepherds, Camelot will thrive with structure, routine, and leadership. Training will be key to his success. Not only will training help Camelot bond to his new family, but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. 

We have learned that Camelot is heartworm positive. This condition could have been avoided had he been provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. MAGSR has begun his heartworm treatment and Camelot is doing well. The cost of his entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Camelot is more than worth the cost. Please consider donating  toward Camelot's treatment. Your generosity will help us save him and other dogs with medical needs. Although Camelot will need to take it slow over the next few months, he will be back to full strength once his treatment is finished. If Camelot sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet him today.

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Boo was found suffering on the side of the road by a work crew. Recognizing that this girl needed help and fast, they contacted a local rescue who quickly came to Boo's aid. Rushed immediately to the vet, it was clear that Boo was malnourished, covered in a demodex mange, and had already contracted heartworm. She was weak from all of the neglect she had endured. Although Boo immediately began receiving much needed care, it was clear that she would need to be transferred to a rescue who could continue to support Boo as she grew stronger. When asked to welcome Boo into the MAGSR family, we immediately stepped up to help her. 

Although Boo has clearly endured a lot in her short life, she is an absolute sweetheart. Everyone who has met Boo has been amazed by her gentle personality. Somewhat timid with new people and situations, Boo will do best in a household that will provide her with the time, patience, and leadership to adjust to her new home. Boo is growing stronger every day. She is ready to begin looking for a forever home that will continue to show her that the world can be a kind and loving place. If Boo sounds like the right match for your household, please ask to meet her today. 

Updates:

Boo is adjusting very well to living in a house.  Her foster reports she is housebroken and she will let you know when she needs to go out. She also does well in the crate overnight.  Since Boo is heartworm positive she needs to keep her activity level limited to leash walks and no running or jumping.

Boo, like any puppy, likes to “collect” items around the house and relocate them so it is important to give her alternate toys which she loves to play with. Her favorite toy is a yellow rope that she engages with her handler. Boo has learned to be around cats (7) as a matter of fact and mostly ignores them so she will likely do fine in a house with a cat.  Boo is an incredibly sweet give who loves attention and being with her people.  She would love a family to call her own.  Please ask to meet Boo!

,

It is just a joy to be in the presence of lil’ Miss Boo!   She has been through so much – found by the side of the road all banged up, a terrible skin condition, and heartworm – but she is upbeat, and so sweet and happy to be with just about anyone, all wiggly and jumpy just like you would expect of a young GSD!    She is feeling and looking a lot better, her skin is healed and her coat has grown in, and her energy is growing.  That  makes the crate rest and exercise limitations for her heartworm a little hard on this young girl, but she is managing like a trooper.  She has a LOT of personality, and she knows she’s hot stuff, so she is something of a diva and can make and little racket and rattle around if she thinks someone is not doing what she wants, but she is super smart and responds very well to consistent leadership and clear communication.  She is very well crate acclimated and pretty well house broken, but she will sometimes submissive pee if she gets excited.  She is also a bit mouthy, but she has improved a lot on both fronts pretty quickly.   So with continued guidance and structure as she matures, she will be a very mannerly girl, but she would do best in a home with no small children.   She loves her bunkmate, an older female GSD, and wants to play but she can’t yet.  Boo is young, enthusiastic, and easily over-stimulated, so it’s best not to get too playful with her for now, so she can try to stay cool, calm, and collected for her HW treatment and recovery over the next couple months.  But once she’s been through that, watch out for this little pistol!  If you think you might be interested in Boo, better get in line soon, because she is something!

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Annisa and her siblings - Orion and Kiernan - arrived in MAGSR's care after being transferred from another rescue. They have clearly been well cared for and are waiting patiently for their forever homes. As these babies were living in a foster home prior to arrival, they have already begun to develop their social skills with people and other animals. It is essential that their new families continue this process as it will help them develop into stable and confident adults. Annisa is your typical puppy - playful, wiggly, and curious about everything. Recognizing that toys provide endless fun, Annisa happily moves from one toy the next for entertainment. Although Annisa is adorable, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics, they get into things, and they will chew on inappropriate items. With time, patience, guidance and training, Annisa will develop into the good canine citizen that we know she is destined to become. If this little girl sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet her today. 

Annisa continually impresses her foster parents. She already knows how to sit, rarely has accidents in the house, sleeps well in her crate, and loves to snuggle with anyone who will let her sit in their lap. She likes to get the attention of the resident German Shepherd in the house and meet new dogs and people. Toys and peanut butter are Annisa’s favorite things. She is extremely affectionate and loves to adventure in the backyard.

Sweet Honey's family loved her dearly. However, due to circumstances beyond their control, they were unable to continue to care for her. As a result, they made the difficult decision to surrender her to a rescue. Although this was hard to do, Honey's family knew it was in her best interest to move forward. We appreciate all that they did for Honey. 

Honey lives up to her name. She is a lovely girl. Having been well socialized with people and animals, Honey gets along well with just about everyone. She has lived with dogs, cats, chickens, and ducks without issues. As a young, big, and energetic girl, Honey will need daily exercise for both her body and mind. This will help her burn her energy appropriately while also stimulating her mind. Training will be very beneficial for Honey as it will not only help her bond with her new family, but it will also help her become a good canine citizen. If Honey sounds like the right match for your family, please ask to meet her today!

Updates:

Honey has been living with a foster for 2 weeks now they are happy to report Honey is 100% house broken and crate trained.  Honey loves to be near her humans, play with toys and chew on bones.  She does not go to the bathroom on a leash so a fenced in yard would be the best fit for her, she will only go to one spot in the yard to do her business.  We are working on Honey’s introduction to other dogs, we think something in her past must have happened to make her untrusting of others initially.  She currently has 6 foster siblings, so she is getting a lot of practice socializing and so far her favorites are a miniature poodle and the dominant lone female GSD.

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Nova was brought into rescue after being pick-up as a stray. Although she did well with her foster family, it was felt that Nova would have her best chance at finding her forever home in another region. When asked if we could help Nova move forward, we were happy to step up. 

Prior to her arrival at MAGSR, Nova was very fortunate to have landed in a loving foster family who was very experienced with the breed and excited to help her. While living in her foster home, Nova was provided with the structure, routine and guidance that all GSDs crave. Living with dogs, kids, and a dog savvy cat, Nova benefited greatly from regular socialization with a variety of people and other animals. She is looking for a forever home that will continue to provide her with these opportunities in a safe and structured manner. Nova will thrive in a household that will help her exercise both her body and mind on a daily basis. Training will be key as Nova moves forward as it will not only help her bond with her new family but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. If Nova sounds like a match for your household, ask to meet this sweet girl today.

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Fox was a victim of cruelty and neglect. Fortunately, when animal services learned of her situation, they moved quickly to help Fox as well as other animals in the household. Although this sweet girl was adjusting to her new circumstances, shelter staff recognized that Fox would have her best chance at finding a loving forever home if she was transferred to a rescue. When asked to help Fox move forward, MAGSR immediately stepped up. 

Fox is a beautiful girl both inside and out. Although she has had to endure circumstances that no one should have to live through, her sweet spirit remains. As she can be a little timid when first new people, Fox warms up quickly with patience and kindness. A few high value treats also go a long way. Once comfortable, Fox is your typical young shepherd. She enjoys snuggles, being close to her people, and goofing around. Currently living with senior GSDs and a few cats, Fox enjoys the company of animals that will give her a minute to warm up to them. She seems most comfortable with one of the pushy, dog-savvy cats. As is true of most shepherds, Fox will benefit greatly from training. This will not only help her bond with her new family, but it will also help her develop confidence. If Fox sounds like the right match for your family, please ask to meet her today.

DESCRIPTION:

Sally and her Cars Puppies were rescued in the south by another group. As they wanted to do right by this lovely family, they began reaching out to other groups who would be able to support the family until they were ready to find forever homes of their own. When asked to welcome this family into the MAGSR family, we immediately said yes. 

Lizzie is a bundle of energy and joy. She is cute as a button and brings happiness to everyone around her. Well socialized in her foster home, Lizzie is a match for a household with kids, cats, or other dogs. Although Lizzie's foster family has given her an excellent start, it is imperative that they continue to keep Lizzie well socialized. This will help her develop into a stable adult. Although Lizzie is absolutely adorable, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics, they get into things, and they will chew on inappropriate items. With time, patience, and training, Lizzie will develop into the good canine citizen that we know she is destined to become. If this little girl sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet her today.

Lovely Millie was found hanging out at a high school with her buddy Murphy. Both dogs were brought to a shelter where they waited for a family to claim them. When no one came forward, the shelter staff started pleading for rescue support as they were at capacity. Who could say no to such sweet dogs?

Millie is a love. She is friendly and good with both people and other dogs. As a young girl, she is energetic and will do best in a home that can burn her energy on a daily basis. Arriving as a stray, we do not know what Millie knows about living in a household. However, she seems to be a quick learner who wants to please her handler. As is true of all dogs, Millie will thrive when provided with guidance, leadership, and consistency. Training will help her adjust to her new family as well as develop the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. Millie is looking for a forever family that will love and care for her for a lifetime. Could that be with you?

MIlo and another puppy were dumped on the side of the road in the south. Skinny, scared, and clearly not well cared for, Milo and his buddy needed help and fast. Fortunately, these babies were noticed by a passerby and brought to safety. Although he has been through a lot in his short life, Milo remains sweet and social. 

Milo is a sweet and interactive boy. He is enjoying the comforts of good food, a soft bed, and a loving family. Recognizing that Milo would need opportunities to socialize with people and other animals, his foster family has been working hard to start this vital process. Socializing with dogs, kids, cats, and people, Milo is quickly learning that people are kind. As socialization is critical for puppies, Milo's forever family will need to continue this practice as it will help him develop into a stable adult dog. Although Milo is a love, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics, they will whine, they get into things, and they will chew on inappropriate items.

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Macy was picked up as a stray with her little family in a busy city. Recognizing that sweet Macy deserved to live a life of comfort and love, the shelter staff made a rescue plea for Macy. MAGSR stepped in to help Macy. 

Macy is a sweetheart that quickly wins over the hearts and minds of everyone she meets. A constant source of tail wags and joy, Macy couldn't have a kinder personality. Although we know that Macy is an incredible girl, we have learned that she is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if she has been properly cared for and provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. Macy has begun her heartworm treatment and is doing well. The cost of Macy's entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Macy is clearly well worth the cost. Please donate toward Macy's treatment, your generosity will help us save her and other dogs with medical needs. Although Macy will need to take it slow over the next few months, she will be back to full strength once her treatment is finished. If your household can provide the love and comfort that Macy deserves, ask to meet her today.

Updates:

Macy has been a great houseguest.   Macy is good with the resident dog, she’s quiet in the crate with very little protesting.  She enjoys her walks & takes treats nicely.  Macy has learned stairs within a day (at first didn’t want to go up or down) & also has joined her foster when he teaches his Zoom/FaceTime lessons.  She is very sweet & wants to please! 

,

We have had Macy for two months. During this time, she has successfully undergone three rounds of heartworm treatment and has also put on some much needed weight.

She is a very sweet dog and aims to please. She gets along with our dogs but we have to limit their time together--she is still recovering from her procedures and needs to remain calm

If you’re looking for a loving, affectionate, friendly dog--who loves to give hugs--as an addition to your household, Macy would make a great candidate.
