Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 3 years 6 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 62 lbs
Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: Unknown

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Madam was running loose in the south and was picked-up by animal control. She waited patiently for her family to come and claim her; however, when no one came, shelter staff began looking for a rescue to help Madam move forward. Having learned that Madam actually belonged to the same family that surrendered Milton and Teddy, we immediately stepped up to bring Madam to safety. MAGSR has a policy of not leaving families behind. 

Madam is an affectionate girl. She enjoys the company of people and seems to have had some exposure to children. Although we know that Madam had an owner, we are not sure if she was kept as an inside dog or an outside dog. We do know that she did not have any vetting prior to her arrival at the shelter. Unfortunately, Madam is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if she had been provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. Madam has already begun her heartworm treatment and is doing well. The cost of Madam's treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Madam is more than worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Madam's treatment. Your generosity will help us save her and other dogs with medical needs. Although Madam 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 is looking for a sweet and affectionate girl, ask to meet Madam today.

DESCRIPTION:

Kat and her brother Cloud were surrendered to a shelter when their owner could no longer keep them safe. With extreme cases of overcrowding in shelters in the south right now due to the unprecedented weather they are experiencing, shelters are pleading for rescues to help move dogs to safety. When asked to help Kat and Cloud move forward, we immediately welcomed them into the MAGSR family. 

Kat is social and friendly. It is highly evident that her family loved her and worked hard to keep her socialized. Her wiggly personality quickly wins over the hearts of everyone around her. Although we know that Kat had a family, we do know know if she was kept as an inside or an outside dog. As we get to know her, we will post updates. Unfortunately, we have learned that Kat is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if she had been provided with monthly heartworm preventatives.

Please consider donating toward Kat's treatment. Your generosity will help us save her and other dogs with medical needs.

Dakar

ADOPTED 03/07/2021!

Dakar

Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 6 months 2 weeks
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 82 lbs
Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

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

Handsome Dakar was picked up as a stray and brought to a shelter in the south. As is true of many GSDs, Dakar struggled at the shelter. However, once volunteers who are comfortable with the breed started working with him, they quickly discovered that this sweet guy had a lot of potential. Recognizing that Dakar would have his best chance at finding his forever home outside the shelter, a plea went out for rescue help. MAGSR answered that call. 

 

Dakar is a playful and curious boy. He enjoys the company of other stable dogs and has greatly enjoyed his time in play group. Although Dakar was a stray, he takes treats gently and walks well on leash. He has quickly begun picking up some basic commands and loves to work for treats. Dakar can be a little timid with new people. However, when given the chance to warm up, he is friendly and playful. He gives kisses and tail wags and seems to enjoy the company of kids. Dakar will do well with a family that will go slow and give him time to adjust. When provided with structure, routine, and leadership, Dakar will have the opportunity to develop into a good canine citizen. If your family sounds like the right match for Dakar, please ask to meet him today.

Bear was found running as a stray in a big city. When animal control picked up this sweet boy they were beyond surprised by his gentle personality. When no one came to claim Bear, the shelter started looking for a rescue so that he could find a safe and loving forever home. Although we don't know much about Bear's history, we do know that he is an affectionate and playful guy. Bear knows a few commands already and is highly food motivated. He takes treats nicely and is eager to learn. This motivation will make Bear the star at training class; participation in training will not only help Bear bond with his forever family, but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. 

Recently we have learned that sweet Bear is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if he had been properly cared for and provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. Bear has already begun his heartworm treatment and is doing well. The cost of Bear's entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Bear is definitely more than worth the cost. Please consider making a donation toward Bear's treatment. Your generosity will help us save him and other dogs with medical needs. Although Bear will need to take it slow over the next few months, he will be back to full strength once his treatment is finished.

Indie's family loved him dearly. Unfortunately, they fell on hard times and were no longer able to care for him. Knowing he deserved a forever family that could meet all of his needs, Indie's family surrendered him to shelter hoping he would find a loving home. Although shelter staff greatly enjoyed Indie, they recognized that shepherds struggle at shelters. In order to give Indie his best chance at finding the right match, they transferred Indie to MAGSR. 

Indie is a young, curious, and playful guy. He is interested in learning all about the world around him. When given a little time to adjust to his surroundings, he warms up well to new people and situations. A big fan of the snow, Indie will happily play, bounce, and romp around. As Indie is an energetic guy, it will be important that his new family not only exercise his body, but that they also exercise his mind. Indie will benefit greatly from training. As this will help him bond with his new family while also developing in the good canine citizen we know he is destined to become. If Indie sounds like the right match for your family, please ask to meet him today.

Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 65 lbs
Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No

Good With Kids: Older kids, over 12

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Koda Mae was found as a stray during some of the ice storms Maryland experienced this year. Although attempts were made to find her family, no one stepped up to claim Koda Mae. As Koda Mae was found in a small community, animal control had concerns that this little girl was dumped out in the elements on purpose. 

Koda Mae is looking for a loving forever family who will commit to her for a lifetime. As a high drive girl, Koda Mae is all about the ball. It is the perfect training tool and Koda Mae is more than happy to comply. Already knowing a few commands, such as, sit and down, this girl will excel in training. Not only will training help her further develop her skills but it will also help her bond appropriately with her new family. As Koda Mae is an energetic and driven girl, she would be most successful in a household that is experienced with the breed. If Koda Mae sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today.

ADOPTED 02/27/2021!

Erica

Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Mix
Approximate Age: 5 years 8 months
Color: Black & Cream
Current Size: 95 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: No

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

Erica was picked up in the south and brought to a local shelter. Shelter staff immediately fell in love with this delightful girl and started pleading for a rescue placement. Fortunately, we were able to step forward and welcome this lovely girl into the MAGSR family.

Erica is the definition of gentle giant. She is easy to walk on leash and friendly with everyone she meets. Erica rides well in the car but is still learning the best way to get up into larger vehicles. We are still getting to know this big, beautiful girl and will post updates soon. If Erica sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today. 

Updates:

Erica has been with us in her foster home for a few days now, and is still settling in. We've learned a few things about her in this short time. She is definitely a "low-key" kinda gal, well-suited for a quiet, less active home. We believe she is part (or whole) Anatolian shepherd, and shows many of the characteristics of this breed. She bonds quickly to her care-giver (that's me!) but does not exhibit separation-anxiety at all; she has been left alone for several hours by herself without problems. She is happy to greet me at the door when I return, but then just retreats to her "spot"  to watch me.

Erica has obviously lived in a home, as she is completely housebroken and waits at the door to tell you she needs outside. She was reported to being accepting of a crate, but that has not been my experience with her - she registered her displeasure at being crated, and has been just fine, uncrated, in my home. She is not destructive at all and stays off the furniture (a rule in my household). Erica is a big girl, but at 90+ lbs she is not overweight for her breeding - she has a visible "waist" when viewed from above. She eats whatever is in her dog bowl, has adjusted to feed changes just fine, and takes treats very gently. Erica walks well on leash and follows my lead. She knows very few commands but is easy to handle.

Erica is looking for her perfect home, one without small animals, and with folks who will love her and care for her for the rest of her life. If your household seeks a "gentle giant" companion dog, please ask to meet Erica.  

 

,

Erica truly is a gentle giant but she has some pep in her, don't let her plodding walk fool you! She most definitely has the character traits of an Anatolian with some GSD/Mastiff thrown in plus or minus some. Independence, thy name is Erica.  She needs time to warm up and feel comfortable - After a little over a week we actually got play bows, mini zoomies, and back wiggles with feet dancing. She actually loves walks and hikes (but I don't see her as a jogging partner). She is fine with people, shopping carts and cars and she rides well in the car.  Erica is good with other dogs, however it takes some time to warm up and once she gets a chance to see and smell other dogs, she is happy for them to go on walks with her. She walks well on a leash -- not at a heel, just not pulling. If anything she needs a few gentle tugs to get a move on when there is an interesting smell distraction.  She does not counter surf; however, anything lower than a standard table (basically, lower than her head) is up for grabs if left unattended.  Erica loves people including children.   She absolutely LOVES getting her ears and neck scratched. Her favorite way of greeting people she knows is to put her head between your legs to be sure you can reach those special spots. If you sit on the floor she will make sure you have access to her head. She does not get up on furniture (except a very well placed bench that allows for a good view outside) but she did realize what dog beds were after a bit of persuasion.  While she is somewhat food motivated she does not know any obedience skills and anyone who wants to do training will need to take it very slow and patiently. If you are looking for a gentle soul to share your home, keep you company on walks, and be there for petting when a fur fix is needed, Erica is the pup for you.

Obedience Trained: No

DESCRIPTION:

Lizzo is a survivor. After using her for puppies, Lizzo's owner decided that owning her wasn't advantageous anymore. As a result, he gave her away to  someone in the community who left her outside to roam. Without proper care, housing, or food, Lizzo began wandering about the community. Although it was unsafe, Lizzo started regularly running through town to return to her previous residence where a furry friend still resided. Fortunately, a good Samaritan became aware of Lizzo's suffering and was able to arrange for Lizzo to be released to a local rescue in the south. Recognizing that Lizzo would have her best chance at finding the forever home in another region, she was transferred to MAGSR. Although we are still getting to know Lizzo, it is clear that even with all the suffering she has endured that she is an incredible dog. As is true of any dog, Lizzo will thrive in a stable household that will provide her with love, guidance and leadership. As we have the opportunity to learn more about Lizzo, we will post updates. If Lizzo sounds like a fit for your household, ask to meet this lovely girl today.

DESCRIPTION:

Aravalli is one of the Nature puppies. She and her siblings - Yellowstone, Rocky, and Alpine are little survivors. They were transferred from another rescue into our care.

Fortunately, the Nature puppies were in good hands and able to fight. Many members of this litter survived. 

Having survived parvo, Aravalli is a super puppy. She cannot ever contract this disease again. Ready to move onto a life of love, cuddles, and playtime, Aravalli is excited to meet her forever family. As a young pup, structure, routine and guidance will make all the difference in Aravalli's life. Although Aravalli is a doll, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics, get into things, and chew on inappropriate things.

DESCRIPTION:

Ruger was well loved by his family. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond their control, Ruger's family needed to find him a new home. When asked if we could help Ruger find the right match, MAGSR was happy to step up to the plate.

Ruger is in many ways a typical GSD puppy. He is busy, playful, and full of energy. His family did a nice job of providing him with opportunities to socialize which will help him develop into a more balanced dog. Continued socialization is critical as Ruger moves forward. True to the breed, Ruger is already showing some GSD traits and can be protective of the house and unsure of new people. Training, socialization, and leadership are essential for Ruger's success. Although Ruger is a handsome guy, please remember that  puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics, get into things, and chew on inappropriate things. With time, patience, guidance, and training, Ruger will develop into the good canine citizen we know he is destined to become. If you are ready to provide Ruger with the structure and routine he craves, please ask to meet him today.

DESCRIPTION:

Sienna was found as a stray in a busy city and sadly no one came to claim her, She is young and playful and did well with other dogs. Sienna is a people pleaser and loves to socialize once comfortable.  Although a little confused as to what all was happening to her, Sienna joined the MAGSR family and has never looked back. Throughout the rescue Sienna is known to be a charmer. Her bouncy, alert, and attentive personality are an immediate draw to everyone around her. 

Sadly, we have learned that she is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if she had been  provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. Sienna has already begun her heartworm treatment and is doing well. The cost of Sienna's entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Sienna is clearly more than worth the cost. Please consider donating  toward Sienna's treatment. Your generosity will help us save her and other dogs with medical needs. Although Sienna 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 is ready to provide Sienna with the leadership and love she craves, ask to meet her today.

Current Size: 65 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 65 lbs
Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No

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

Karl was a stray who was picked up and brought to a shelter. Upon arrival it was evident to the shelter staff that Karl was a special guy. He easily won the hearts of shelter staff. Although playful and affectionate, Karl struggled with anxiety in the shelter environment. This is very common for German Shepherds and many other guardian breeds. Recognizing that Karl needed his best chance and finding his forever home, the shelter contacted MAGSR and the rest is history. 

Karl is a handsome guy. He interacts well with dogs and other people. However, he does need slow introductions to new people and situations. Karl's forever family will need to follow a two to three week shut down when he joins their family. This will provide Karl with the opportunity to slowly adjust to his new home. Patience and structure will help Karl learn household routines and settle in more effectively. Karl is looking for a calm household that will help him develop into the stable guy we know he is destined to be. If Karl sounds like a good match for your household, please ask to meet him today.

Current Size: 85
Ideal/Potential Size: 95
Housebroken: No
Obedience Trained: No

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

Boone is a big, beautiful, energetic dog. He was found as a stray and brought to a shelter. Recognizing that shepherds struggle at shelters, staff members immediately began looking for rescues who could help Boone find a forever home. Although Boone is two, he is in many ways like a big puppy. He is playful, energetic, and doesn't understand that he is a big guy. As is true of many young dogs who have not been provided with structure and routine, Boone still has a lot to learn about being a good canine citizen. He has had very little experience with a leash and will need to learn some of the finer skills of leash etiquette. Boone will benefit greatly from a good training program as it will not only help him bond with his family but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. Boone will be most successful with a handler who is experienced with the breed. If Boone sounds like a good match for your household, please ask to meet him today.

DESCRIPTION:

Snowflake's family loved her dearly. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, they could no longer care for her. Although surrendering her was a difficult decision, they knew this gave Snowflake her best chance. We promised Snowflake's family that we would find her the perfect forever home. 

Snowflake is a lovely girl. She is charming and playful when comfortable with her people. Both a fan of the soccer ball and fetch, Snowflake simply brings smiles to those around her. Although this little girl is a doll, she is in need of continued socialization and training. Having had limited experiences within the community, Snowflake will need time, patience, and leadership as she learns about the world around her. Snowflake will thrive in an environment where structure and routine are infused into daily activities. She will do well with a family that understands and has experience with the breed. Please remember that although they are cute and cuddly, puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics and can be mischievous - they will whine, have accidents, get into things, and chew on inappropriate things. With time, patience, guidance and training, Snowflake will develop into the good canine citizen she is destined to become. If Snowflake sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today.

DESCRIPTION:

Sweetie and her siblings, Cupid, Valentine, and Angel, were living outside in a location where their likelihood of survival was significantly diminished each day they remained on the property. With limited food, clean water, shelter, and no vetting, these babies had few options. In addition, hazardous conditions on the property made their prognosis grave. Several of their siblings drowned before rescuers were able to step in and help. With the assistance of other rescues, volunteers, and vets, MAGSR was able to bring these little survivors into the MAGSR family. 

Sweetie is clearly a cutie and her story has quickly won over the hearts and minds of the many people who have helped her along the way. However, Sweetie is a working line dog who will require a special household that will commit to training and socialization. As a high energy breed who needs to have structure, guidance, and constant leadership, Sweetie's family will need to keep both her mind and body exercised on a daily basis. Although Sweet is an incredible dog, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics and can be mischievous - they will whine, have accidents, get into things, and chew on inappropriate things. With time, patience, guidance and training, Sweetie will develop into the good canine citizen she is destined to become.

DESCRIPTION:

Raina is your typical young, energetic shepherd. In many ways she embodies the characteristics of most shepherds - curious, eager, and loyal. Raina has lived with a cat and interacted with small dogs prior to her arrival at MAGSR. She is very playful which could be a little much for the cat in her household. Affectionate and sweet, Raina has done well when meeting new people but can become a little too exuberant and get jumpy. Both crate trained and housebroken, Raina understands many of the household rules; however, as is true of any new dog, she will need time to adjust to the routines of a new household. Raina will benefit from a household that will provide her with the structure, leadership, and training that helps all dogs excel. If you feel like your household is a good match for Raina, please ask to meet her today!

DESCRIPTION:

As Trena has endured a difficult life, it can take her a little time to warm up to new people and circumstances. Her reactions and responses make it clear that she has been abused. When welcomed into her foster family, Trena would lay in the corner scared and shaking. Although fear seemed to consume this lovely lady, with love, patience, and a little help from her furry foster brother - Camden, Trena began making strides. Trena enjoys her daily walks and seems happiest when playing outside. As she has adjusted to family life, Trena has begun learning some basic commands, developing her playful voice, and housebreaking. Trena will be most successful in a household that will take the time to further build her confidence. She would benefit from a calm and quiet household that would provide the structure and patience Trena needs to meet with further success. If your family can provide Trena with the love and support she will need to continue to move forward, please ask to meet her today. 

Updates:

Trena has had such a hard life but even with everything she has been through she is beginning to trust humans. Everyday Trena makes strides in trusting. She is very fearful and her fosters have found she likes to eat in her crate. It is exciting that Trena is starting to ask for belly rubs and had her 1st playdate and did great. As you will see from Trena's pictures she loves her foster brother Cam. Trena would do best with another dog in her forever home, as she looks to them for confidence.

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Gator has been passed from household to household throughout his young life. In his most recent household, the owners had stopped providing him with the basics of food, water, or vetting. Instead, he was left chained outside with very little shelter. When another rescue stepped in to help Gator, they were impressed that this boy was still so sweet even with everything he had endured. 

 

Gator is still a young guy who will thrive with leadership and consistency. He has not had the opportunity to socialize with people and dogs as much as would have been expected at his age. However, he remains friendly. Gator will do best in a household where his new family can go slowly and provide him with the structure and routine that all GSDs crave. Gator has been living with other dogs since his removal from his last owner and done well. He seems to like the presence of another stable dog. As he moves forward, Gator will benefit greatly from training as it will help him bond to his new family as well as become a good canine citizen. If Gator sounds like a match for your household, please inquire about him today.

DESCRIPTION:

Captain found himself at a local shelter when he began getting nervous around the toddler in the household. Although Captain never tried to hurt the toddler, the family felt that it was safer for all involved to rehome Captain. Having spent his entire life with his previous family, Captain is a little unsure about all of the sudden changes in his life. 

Captain is a playful, ball driven guy. Having lived in a household his entire life, Captain is housebroken and crate trained. He also knows some basic commands. As is true of most shepherds, Captain can be protective of his people and will need to learn to trust that his new family will set him up for success. Training will be an important part of the bonding process for Captain and his new family. Captain is looking for a forever home that will commit to him for a lifetime. Could that be you?

Updates:

Captain is a smart and playful guy who had the benefit of participating in a board and train program at Stateline Canine. MAGSR is so very grateful to Stateline for all that they have done to help Captain further develop into a good canine citizen. Captain moved directly from his board and train program into a foster home so that he can further develop his skills in a home environment. When he moves into his forever home, Captain will have lifetime access to Stateline Canine for skill refreshers. Captain's foster family adores him. He provides them with endless entertainment and antics. As your typical shepherd, Captain prefers to be with his people at all times and will watch and wait for them if they leave his presence. Housebroken, crate trained, and knowing his basic commands, Captain understands the basic rules of a household but does best with a strong, confident handler. Although Captain could play ball for hours every day, he also enjoys some cuddles. Unaware that he is a big guy, once comfortable, Captain does think he makes the perfect lap dog. That is if you prefer not to feel your thighs for long periods of time. He is also the master of a good face wash and will happily assist you with taking care of any leftover crumbs. Captain is a special guy who is looking for a household that is experienced with the breed. Good with dogs and cats, Captain enjoys the company of other animals particularly when clear expectations are in place. He will meet with greatest success when provided with the structure and leadership that all shepherds crave. If Captain sounds like the right match for your household, please ask to meet him today.

DESCRIPTION:

Winter's family fell on hard times and could no longer provide her with the basic food and shelter she needed. As a result, they made the decision to turn her into a shelter with the hope that she would find a new home. Although done with the best intentions, Winter was overlooked and in an overcrowded shelter this meant she was living on borrowed time. When shelter staff realized she needed out, they contacted MAGSR. We immediately welcomed Winter into rescue. 

Winter is a sweetheart; however, she can be timid around new people. Once she warms up, Winter is your typical, young GSD. Good with other dogs, Winter participated in playgroup regularly at the shelter. Although Winter is honey who is ready to find her forever home, we have learned that she is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if she had been  provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. Winter has already begun her heartworm treatment and is doing well. The cost of Winter's entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Winter is clearly more than worth the cost. Please consider donating  toward Winter's treatment. Your generosity will help us save her and other dogs with medical needs. Although Winter will need to take it slow over the next few months, she will be back to full strength once her treatment is finished.

Kylo was found as a stray in a big, busy city. He was brought to a shelter where he waited for his family to claim him. However, when no one came to get Kylo, the shelter began to plead for rescue for this big, handsome guy. Although we do not know anything about Kylo's history, we do know that someone cared for him at one time as he arrived already knowing a few basic commands. Good with other dogs, Kylo did well in playgroup at the shelter and was non-reactive to dogs passing his kennel run. As is true of all shepherds, Kylo will do well with structure and routine. He is looking for a household who is experienced with the breed so that he has opportunities to meet with success. 

Although Kylo is a neat guy, we have learned that he is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if he had been properly cared and provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. Kylo has already begun his heartworm treatment and is doing well. The cost of Kylo's entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Kylo is clearly more than worth the cost.

Mr. Jack and his housemate, Miss Jackie, were used for puppies. Their lives have been filled with little care, comfort, or kindness. When their owner decided that it was time for them to move on, their future options were very limited. Fortunately, another rescue heard about their situation and reached out to MAGSR for help. 

Although we knew that both dogs would need some additional love and attention, we also knew they deserved kindness and compassion. Mr. Jack was shown very little warmth or gentleness prior to his arrival. He was fearful of people as he was unsure of their intentions. Fortunately, with the care and attention of a loving foster home, Mr. Jack has begun to blossom. He seeks out the attention of his foster family and has taken on the role of velcro dog in the household. It is simply amazing what a difference kindness makes even after years of suffering. Although Mr. Jack is an incredible guy, we have learned that he is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided had he been properly cared for and provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. Mr. Jack has already begun his heartworm treatment and is doing well.

Although we knew that both would need some additional love and attention, we also knew they deserved kindness and compassion. Miss Jackie is friendly, interactive, and goofy. She seeks out attention from everyone around and is a bit of a social butterfly. Fortunately, Miss Jackie has found a loving foster home that is helping her move forward. Although Miss Jackie is an incredible lady, we have learned that she is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided had she been properly cared for and provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. Miss Jackie has already begun her heartworm treatment and is doing well.

Updates: Miss Jackie is a very sweet girl. She seems to love all humans and loves attention. She is a laid back, easy going dog. She loves going for long walks. She likes playing with certain toys. She is housebroken and crate trained. Miss Jackie prefers male dogs over females, she can be quite reactive to female dogs, however with her fosters working with her she is doing better. She will get along with male dogs, but when she wants her own space she'll react. I think it's safe to say Miss Jackie likes being the boss and if she had her choice she would like to be the only dog in the house.

Shy is a survivor. Owned by a hoarder in the south and used to breed puppies, Shy's life had been filled with pain and suffering. However, when another rescue stepped up and removed Shy and several other dogs from the premises, Shy's life changed forever. Recognizing that Shy would have her best chance at finding the forever home in another region, she was transferred to MAGSR. Although we are still getting to know Shy, it is clear that even with all the suffering she has endured she is a sweet but very timid dog. Shy will thrive in a stable, confident, and patient household. This will provide her with love, guidance and leadership needed to help her develop confidence. As we have the opportunity to learn more about Shy, we will post updates. If Shy sounds like a fit for your household, please ask to meet her today. 

Update: Shy's foster is happy to report that she has made the transition from living in a horrible hoarding situation to living in a home quite nicely.  Shy is housebroken, crate trained and walks nicely on the leash.  Shy still gets startled easy as she is learning to trust her humans and will retreat to her crate as her safe place.  Shy is a sweet loving dog, has shown no aggression and gets along with the resident dog.  As Shy puts her horrible past behind her we feel she will blossom and be an outstanding addition to any family.

DESCRIPTION:

David and Goliath were abandoned. These handsome guys needed help and fast. Fortunately, a good samaritan found them and got them to another rescue. Recognizing that the boys would have their best chance in a different region, they were transferred into the MAGSR family. Although these babies are little sweethearts, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics and can be mischievous - they will whine, have accidents, get into things, and chew on inappropriate things. With time, patience, guidance and training, Goliath will develop into the good canine citizen he is destined to become.

As is also true of most shepherds, Gypsy thrives with leadership and a confident handler. Having lived in a household, Gypsy is housebroken and understands many of the basic rules of living in a home. As an active girl, Gypsy will benefit from daily exercise of both her mind and body. She loves long walks and enjoys exploring the outdoors. If Gypsy sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today.

Current Size: 60 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 60 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

Good With Kids: Yes

DESCRIPTION:

Yuki's family loved her dearly; however, due to some unforeseen circumstances, they found themselves unable to provide her with the attention and care she deserves. As a result, Yuki's family made the difficult decision to surrender her to MAGSR. We have promised Yuki's family that we will find her a safe and loving household. 

Yuki is a lovely and energetic shepherd. As is common with most shepherds, Yuki thrives with structure and leadership. When these circumstances are not present, she can become nervous and anxious. Although Yuki has lived with other dogs, cats, and children, she does need time to warm up to new people and animals. When given this opportunity, Yuki meets with success. Yuki is looking for a forever family that will help her move forward. If she sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet Yuki today.  

Updates:

Yuki has been with her foster for 2 weeks and is settling in well. She is starting to show her fun loving personality and can we just say: SQUEAKY BALL! She is in love with squeaky balls and would love to play fetch with her person for as long as possible. She absolutely loves getting her chest scratched and will pull your hand right to her chest with her paw. Need a reminder not to sit at the computer for long periods? No problem. She has a built in clock that says one hour at a time only please. Her itchiness is doing better and her coat is looking more glossy with regular groceries and fish oil. She is still nervous around other people and dogs and needs very gentle introductions. We are working on leash manners and she knows she is supposed to do something different, but is still very focused on watching out for trouble. After barking and letting workmen know that they were entering restricted territory and then getting introduced, she had no problem letting them come in and work on my house. Yuki has a possible diagnosis of EPI -- a pancreatic insufficiency common in GSDs, and may need lifelong enzyme additives in her food. It doesn't bother her but may be adding to her tendency to being underweight and itchy.

,

Yuki has had a very happy new year! For the first time, she had happy zoomies after a walk (for those of you who haven't seen those, that is when the dog is so full of fun that their brains turn off, ears go back, and the dog zooms around the available space with a wide smile and frequent play bows until the need for water slows them down). She didn't have any problems with the fireworks, which was a nice surprise. She also slept through the neighbor's loud music. It was nice to see her relaxed. She really is a sweetheart who just wants to be near her person in a generally quiet environment and get the ball thrown for her. She would rather play ball then go on a walk! She is housebroken and prefers to do her business in the backyard rather than on walks.

She is crate trained but we are seeing some separation anxiety behaviors.  She would benefit from some work with that. She is eager to please and be a part of your life. She is very ball motivated and that is fun to use during training. She knows (in a distraction free environment) sit, down, up, off, come, leave it, bring it, go potty, over, in the car, and where's the ball. She is getting better at stay, but still wants you to stay in sight in return.

Yuki has EPI which requires over-the-counter enzymes and regular, store bought food (high calorie, lower fat, and low fiber). The enzymes we have were around $77 for what is probably going to be a 20 day supply. So her "special" food need comes to about $100 per month and she gets Monthly B-12 shots.   Yuki is a special dog that needs a special home that will love her and keep up her special diet and shots.  Could you be that person that gives her the care and love she so deserves?
