Color: White
Current Size: 80 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 90 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No

Good With Cats: Unknown

DESCRIPTION:

Casper was found as a stray in a big, busy city. Fortunately, he was brought to a shelter where he waited for his family to claim him. When no one came to claim this big guy, staff members sent out a plea asking for rescues to step up and help Casper find the loving forever home he deserves. 

 

Casper is a big friendly guy. He hasn't yet to meet an adult or a child that he hasn't liked. As a young dog, Casper has a lot of energy and would be happy to play for hours every day. He is a particularly big fan of the ball. As is true of all GSDs, Casper will thrive in a household where he has guidance, leadership and consistency. Training will go a long way with this big guy as it will help him not only bond to his new family but it will also help him develop into the good canine citizen that he is destined to be. We are still getting to know Casper. As we know more, we will provide updates here. If Casper sounds like a good match for your family, ask to meet him today!

Zeena

ADOPTED 01/17/2021!

Zeena
ZenaZenaZenaZenaZena
Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 9 years 9 months
Color: Black
Current Size: 60 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 60 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Unknown
Altered: Yes

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

Sweet Zeena's family loved her dearly. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, they were no longer able to care for her. As a result, they made the difficult decision to surrender her. Although this was not an easy decision, it was done in Zeena's best interest.

Zeena is a gentle a loving dog. She has been raised with cats and dogs of various sizes and done well. Having previously lived in a household, Zeena understands many of the household rules already but will likely need a refresher on the specific rules of her new household. Zeena is looking for a forever family that will provide for her throughout her golden years. If Zeena sounds like a match for your family, please ask to meet her today. 

Updates:

Zeena is settling in the rhythms of her foster home. She already has many qualities of a trained, balanced dog. First off, she is housebroken and crate-trained.  She goes right into a sit to wait for instructions, permissions, food, etc.   She looks forward to her walks and heals beautifully—except if a feral cat looks too interesting!  She doesn’t jump up (including on furniture), doesn’t counter surf (or she hasn’t seen the opportunity ), no door dashing, and rarely barks. She seems to enjoy attention but doesn’t get “in your face”.
Zeena is recovering nicely from her ear infections and skin allergies. Her soft coat and clear eyes invite kisses and hugs that she tolerates well with maybe even a little kiss in return.
Though she is new to us, she has remained calm despite the holiday craziness, and welcomed whoever she met.

Gisela is a friendly and playful girl. She is a huge fan of the ball and could play for hours if given the opportunity. As is true of many dogs, Gisela will out the ball but prefers to switch with you instead. In addition to being toy motivated, Gisela is also treat motivated; this will make training a joy. Gisela is an active girl who will do well with a family who can exercise both her body and her mind. If this active girl sounds like a good match for your household, please ask to meet her today.

When no one came for Ernie, he was welcomed into the MAGSR family with the promise that we would find him a loving forever home. Ernie is as sweet as they come. He is friendly with both people and dogs. In many ways Ernie is a blank slate who is ready to move forward with his new family. Like all dogs, Ernie will benefit from training as it will not only help him integrate into his new family, but it will also help him become a good canine citizen. Ernie is looking for a forever family that will commit to him for a lifetime. If Ernie sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet him today.

Updates:

Ernie is a sweet and gentle dog.  He is good with the resident dogs in the foster's home and really wants to play but due to just being neutered he isn't allowed.  He is housebroken and crate trained.  Ernie loves to go to the doggie toy box to get toys out, bones are his favorite.  Ernie has picked up one or two things that are not toys and responds when you say drop it.  He is a big puppy that loves attention and he wants to please his human.  He is going to make someone a great family dog.

Sweet Linus has been passed around a few times over his short line. His most recent household decided they no longer wanted him and the easiest solution was to end his life. Fortunately, another rescue found out about Linus' fate and was able to save him before it was too late. Recognizing they could not provide Linus with the options he deserved, he was transferred to MAGSR to find a loving forever home.

Although Linus has lacked the love and kindness he deserved prior to his rescue placement, he has remained a sweet and affectionate boy. Linus enjoys the company of people and is a big fan of kids. He is already a big guy and he will continue to grow over the next several months. Linus will do well in a household where he is provided with the patience, guidance, and leadership that all shepherds crave. If Linus sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet him today.

Walker was purchased from a breeder with the intent to use him for breeding.

With this change of heart, Walker's owner decided she no longer wanted him and surrendered him to a shelter.

Walker, like most young GSDs, is a playful and energetic guy. He is friendly and affectionate with people and has been doing well with other dogs. However, he still has a lot to learn about being a good canine citizen. Walker is a big guy who will benefit greatly from routine and structure. He will excel in training and it will help him not only learn expectations but it will also help him bond with his new family.

DESCRIPTION:

Rollo was clearly a well-loved member of his family. However, when their circumstances changed, Rollo was surrendered to a local shelter. Rollo is a friendly guy. Easy on leash and social with his people, Rollo loves attention and affection. Although Rollo is comfortable with people, he has not had a lot of experience with other dogs and does need to develop his confidence in this area. Rollo will need time to adjust to other dogs and proper introductions are a must. As Rollo has previously lived in a household, he is likely aware of general household rules. However, like any new dog, it will take him some time to adjust to his new family. Training will go a long way to help Rollo with this transition as it will not only help him bond with his new family but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. If Rollo sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet him today.

Rollo is doing wonderfully and has integrated nicely into his foster family. He is warm, friendly and knows and follows basic commands.  He loves getting love and attention, he is a snuggle bug. 

He had a nice Christmas and enjoyed a special chew bone along with the resident German Shepherd dogs Vader and Nala during dinner.  He also shared some treats with them Christmas morning they received in their stockings.   He loves going on walks and being out in the yard.

Olaf is an affectionate and playful guy. He is social and enjoys the company of other dogs. As a lover of warm hugs, Olaf believes that everyone wants to be his buddy. Only about a year old, Olaf still has a lot to learn about becoming a good canine citizen. However, with training, patience, and leadership, we are sure he will succeed.

DESCRIPTION:

Rogue was surrendered to a shelter when his family realized the demands of a guardian breed. As a working line, energetic pup, Rogue is best suited for a household that will provide him with structure and leadership. Both toy and treat motivated, Rogue is a fast learner and is picking up commands quickly. He will be an absolute joy to train with as he is driven, motivated and intelligent. Already very accustomed to playing with toys, Rogue is always ready to play. 

Although Rogue is an intelligent and driven dog, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and will require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics and can be mischievous - they will whine, bark, have accidents, get into things, and chew on inappropriate things. With time, patience, guidance and training, Rogue will develop into the good canine citizen he is destined to become.

Good With Kids: Unknown

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Kabona was confiscated from her owner after being left outside to fend for herself. The shelter that took Kabona in recognized that she was undersocialized and would need some extra support in order to move forward. When they reached out to MAGSR, we knew we needed to step in.

Kabona is a lovely, young girl who thrives with consistency and structure. Due to the lack of opportunities provided to her prior to her arrival at MAGSR, she has a lot to learn about living in a loving household. However, she has already begun to make significant strides. Kabona is a big fan of treats and toys. In fact, she thinks she should have all the toys at once. I mean who could blame her. The more toys you put in one spot, the more fun you can have. In just a week, Kabona has made significant progress crate training and house breaking. She is clearly an intelligent girl. Although Kabona is showing us that in the right circumstances she will thrive, it is important that her forever family recognize that Kabona will need slow introductions to new people and situations. This will give her the opportunity to adjust to her surroundings and meet with success. Kabona will benefit greatly from training as this will help her further develop her overall confidence; it will also help her bond with her new family. Kabona is patiently waiting for her forever home. Are you the right match for her?

Eugene

ADOPTED 12/28/2020!

Eugene is home!
EugeneEugeneEugeneEugene
Embedded thumbnail for Eugene-MAGSR-2020
Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 6 years 9 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 60 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Unknown
Altered: No

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

Sweet Eugene was picked up as a stray by a local shelter. Although his family was found, they no longer wanted him. Without anyone to claim him, Eugene was left to wait for a new family. MAGSR heard Eugene's story and knew he deserved to move forward with a new family that would commit to him for a lifetime.

Eugene is a friendly guy who likes to talk about his day with his people. Curious about the world around him, Eugene likes to keep himself busy. Eugene is lucky to have moved directly into a foster home where he will learn all about the joys of having a home of his own. As we get to know Eugene, we will post updates on his adventures. If Eugene sounds like a good match for your household, please ask to meet him today. 

Updates:

Eugene is an absolute sweetheart of a dog and is a classic energetic GSD. He loves to snuggle and is always down for pets. He is a dream on a leash, walking without much pulling at all and showing no reaction to barking dogs in the neighborhood. He loves to play, be it a ball or a rope. Did I mention he loves balls? He really loves chasing balls! He's a strong chewer, managing to cut a thick rope in two while our back was turned, so tough toys are a must. He'll talk to you throughout the day, letting you know he's there but he not a big barker. House broken, he has never had an accident or marked inside the house. As he's been settling into his foster home, he's shown that he knows all basic commands, including sit, stay, down, and leave it. He's still working on drop it as those balls are just too exciting! He's fantastic with adults and older kids. He enjoys exercising his mind with training and play such as hide and seek. We're sure he'd be good with dogs as he doesn't appear to be dog reactive. He's shown no aggressive behaviors. He does play a little rough, so very small children or small dogs might be challenging. We haven't had a chance to test him with cats yet. He gets quite excited when he sees cats or squirrels on walks but doesn't pull on the leash. He is very smart and does test boundaries, such as taking his ball out of the toy box up on a shelf when we are in the other room, but he has yet to get into anything that belongs to the humans in the house. He is still intact and soon to be neutered. All in all, he's a deeply affectionate playful dog and we expect him to make a forever owner very happy. PS- His tale is crazy long and just stunningly beautiful!

Crowley is your typical intelligent, playful, protective, energetic young shepherd. He is a busy guy who will do best in a home where both his mind and body are exercised regularly. Both housebroken and crate trained, Crowley understands the general rules of the household; however, all young dogs will try something from time to time. Having had the benefit of some training, Crowley knows basic commands such as, sit, down, drop it, leave it, and release. Although Crowley has already begun some training, it is essential that this continue as it will help him bond with his new family. If Crowley sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet him today. 

Updates:

Crowley is enjoying his first week with his foster. Crowley is housebroken, crate trained, and loves his doggy beds. He loves belly rubs & back scratches. He's very quiet in the house, easy to walk and likes to be close to his foster. He listens and knows a lot of his basic commands. Crowley is patiently waiting for us forever home.

Norri's puppies were adopted out by the shelter leaving Norri behind. The shelter has worked hard to find a rescue to take Norri in and give her the future she deserves. MAGSR was happy to step up and welcome her to the MAGSR family.

Although we are still getting to know Norri, it is clear that even with the uncertain life she has led she is a sweet dog. Shy will thrive in a stable, confident, and patient household.

Fluffy Thorson and his little family found themselves alone and in need on the streets of a big city. Fortunately, a good samaritan found the little family, and got them to safety. When no one came to claim this little family, MAGSR stepped in to help them all find safe and loving homes. 

Thorson is a playful and social guy. He, just like his brother, is a big fan of cuddles. While on the streets, Thorson incurred an injury and has resulted in paraphimosis. He will need additional monitoring and a surgery or two in order to heal properly. Multiple surgeries will be expensive, but we know that Thorson is more than worth the cost. Please consider donating to Thorsen's care as this will not only help us provide him with the support he needs but it will help us help other dogs with medical needs. 

Although Thorson is a sweet 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 and can be mischievous – they will whine, have accidents, get into things, and chew on inappropriate things. With time, patience, guidance and training, Thorson will develop into the good canine citizen he is destined to become.

DESCRIPTION:

Unfortunately, Bella's owner passed away unexpectedly. As there was not a family member able to care for Bella, she was instead taken to a shelter where she waited for someone to adopt her. When no one came to adopt her, the shelter that was taking care of Bella reached out to MAGSR. We immediately welcomed her into the MAGSR family. 

Bella is a sweet girl who is good with other dogs. However, she has been through a significant amount of change in such a short period of time. As a result, we are giving Bella time to decompress and adjust to her new life. Fortunately, Bella moved directly into a loving foster home that is giving her the time to adjust. As we get to know more about Bella, we will post updates. If Bella sounds like the right dog for your household, please let us know.

Updates:

Bella is an absolute dream of a dog. She's lovable and eager to please. Bella's perfect day would start with a brisk walk and breakfast. Then she's down for a nap or some neighborhood window watching. Bella enjoys a longer walk at noon and another naptime curled in whatever patch of sun is available. She's always ready to patrol the yard and defend it from squirrels. Bella is right there to help with dinner prep and is an excellent menu tester. She settles down for the night in her crate with a plush bed, no puppy shredding risk for this lady! Bella is an undemanding couch snuggle buddy. She'll need proper dog intros, but is doing great with the resident older male GSD.

Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

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

Goofy and his siblings - Goose, Grace, and Ginger - were confiscated from a puppy mill operation. They are all emaciated and in need of positive interaction. The shelter that confiscated this little family knew that these dogs would need extra support in order to find their forever homes. When MAGSR got the call to take them in, we started putting plans in place to meet their needs.

Although they have survived a horrible situation, Goofy and his siblings are very loveable dogs. Definitely a little skittish, these dogs will excel with patience, leadership, and positive experiences. Goofy is a friendly guy who appreciates gentle but confident handling. He leans in for affection and has easily won over the hearts of our volunteers. We look forward to getting to know Goofy over the next few weeks. If he sounds like a good match for your family, ask to meet him. 

Updates:

Goofy has been in his foster home for about a month now and is adjusting well. He is also putting on
some much-needed weight. He is an absolute sweetheart and craves attention from his people. He’s a
happy chap whose tail is always wagging. His life is changing for the better and he seems to know it.
Goofy is an energetic, clumsy, large boy who is going to get larger—so he would probably be better
placed with older children. He’s been friendly with everyone he has met and gets along with other dogs.
He enjoys playing with his foster siblings and will do well with a playmate in his size range. In the yard
he seems to enjoy spending as much time getting attention from people as running and playing. He is
still skittish around sudden movements and loud noises, however, he has become more comfortable in
his surroundings. He is crate trained and sleeps well through the night. He will retreat to his crate for
comfort if he’s nervous. He enjoys walks and doesn’t pull on the leash but will benefit from the bond
he will form with his people through training. In an unfamiliar place or situation, he will rely on his person
for reassurance. In his foster home, he is living with two smaller female dogs to whom he is submissive.
At the vets and when being bathed he was nervous but behaved well. He isn’t sure what to do with toys yet.
Goofy would love a family of his own for the holidays, could that be yours?!

Lucy is one of Macy's survivor puppies. Just like her mom, Lucy is a survivor in more ways than one. She was one of the three puppies out of a litter of five that survived the dreaded parvo - Lu,Casey and Lacy - had the help of many people to arrive safely in MAGSR's care. This precious butterball will wiggle her way right into your heart in no time flat.

Although Lucy is an incredible girl, 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, Lucy will develop into the good canine citizen she is destined to become.

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

Loki is a young and energetic shepherd. Friendly and still puppy-like, he is learning to look to the handler for direction. As is common with most shepherds, Loki thrives with structure and leadership. A household that can provide him with routine and direction will help him gain confidence and develop into a stable adult. Loki will benefit greatly from training; this will not only help him bond to his forever family but it will also help him become a good canine citizen. Although Loki has lived with other dogs, cats, and children, he will need time to adjust to his new circumstances. If Loki sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet him today.

Recognizing that Zeva would have her best chance at finding the forever home in the north, she was transferred to MAGSR. Although we are still getting to know Zeva, it is clear that even with all the suffering she has endured that she is a sweet dog. As is true of any dog, Zeva will thrive in a stable household that will provide her with love, guidance and leadership. As we have the opportunity to learn more about Zeva, we will post updates.

Obedience Trained: Unknown

Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: No
Other Dogs OK: Yes, with proper introduction
DESCRIPTION:

Sherman was a stray who was brought into a local shelter. When no one came to claim this handsome guy, MAGSR decided to step in to help him find his forever home. Due to Sherman's circumstances, we don't have a lot of information regarding how he does in a household or how he interacts with kids or cats. However, we do know that Sherman is a strong, playful guy. He is a big fan of toys and will happily play with his people. Although he can be non-reactive around other dogs, he can be a little pushy when first meeting new dogs and will need to be given time to be introduced properly. Sherman is looking for a home that will help him further develop into the good canine citizen we know he can be. Please watch for updates as we get to know Sherman. 

Updates:

Sherman is housebroken and crate trained. He is learning leash manners and can be stubborn but once he knows that you are not giving up until he listens he settles down. Sherman loves attention, playing with toys, going for car rides and lying close to you. His fosters think he has lived in a house as he is not afraid of the vacuum or other loud house noises. Unfortunately, Sherman was not taught manners and still mouths when he plays and greets people; Sherman would do best with someone who has prior German Shepherd experience who will continue to work on his obedience and mouthing.

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!

Obedience Trained: Working on it

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

Sheldon came to us from a shelter as he was brought in as a stray. We do not know a lot about Sheldon's past but, we have gotten to know more about him while he has been in our care.  Clearly under socialized and possibly mistreated early on, Sheldon arrived lacking the confidence needed to meet with success. However, with leadership and structure, Sheldon has made great strides.

MAGSR was fortunate to be able to provide Sheldon with the opportunity to work with a trainer in order to develop his basic obedience while building his overall confidence. At this time Sheldon is an absolute dream when working through commands. However, when placed in new situations, Sheldon often will revert back to his fearful self. Continued structure and practice will help Sheldon recognize the importance of looking to the handler for direction. This will further enhance his overall confidence while developing into the good canine citizen he is destined to become.

Sheldon would be most successful in a family that has experience with an insecure dog. His forever family will need to continue his training and confidence building without putting him in unpredictable situations. As Sheldon is uncomfortable with quick movements or busy households, he would be most successful in a home without children.

If Sheldon sounds like a dog that would be a fit for your family and you have the time and patience to work him through some challenges, he will reward you with his loyalty, puppy kisses and tail wags.

Sheldon has been through a four-week basic obedience leave-and-learn class with Stateline Canine in Hanover, PA. His adoptive family will be able to set-up a lesson to go over all his commands.

Although Nathan is an absolute joy, 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.

Although we are still getting to know Zoe, it is clear that even with all of the suffering that she has endured, he is a sweet and affectionate girl.

As is true of all other dogs, Zoe will be most successful when provided with structure and leadership. Training will help her further develop her confidence as well as bond with her new family.

Although Zoe is clearly a special girl, we have learned that she is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if her caretakers had kept her on monthly heartworm preventatives. Zoe has begun her heartworm treatment and is doing well. The cost of Zoe's entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Zoe is definitely worth the cost. Please donate toward Zoe's treatment, your generosity will help us save her and other dogs with medical needs. Although Zoe will need to take it slow over the next few months, she will be back to full strength once her treatment is finished.

When no one came to get Sandy, MAGSR decided to step-in and help this happy-go-lucky girl find the perfect forever family. Although Sandy came into the shelter as a stray, she does know several commands and seems to be well socialized. Understanding that toys make everything more exciting, Sandy entertains herself with a variety of dog toys. When meeting other dogs, Sandy has done well. Sandy is looking for a forever family that will help her further develop into the good canine citizen that we know she is destined to be. If Sandy sounds like the right fit for your family, please ask to meet her today. 

Update: Sandy is very cuddly and loves to play, run, and loves attention.  When she has to go to the bathroom she goes to the door and sometimes will jump on the door to get your attention.  Sandy is still very much a puppy and she needs to be monitored so she does not get into trouble.  She does well with other dogs, but because she is still young she doesn’t always know when to stop.  Her fosters are working with her on crate training.

ADOPTED 12/03/2020!

Approximate Age: 7 years 10 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 68 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: No

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

Sheena is a survivor. This special and incredibly sweet girl was used for years as a breeding dog. It was evident when rescuers came in to get her that this lovely lady had endured great pain and hardship. Emaciated and chained outside, Sheena was simply being used for puppy production. 

Although Sheena is a victim of cruelty and neglect, this lovely lady has the sweetest disposition. She is an incredible companion and has been friendly with everyone she has met. Our volunteers are simply in awe of her strength and resilience. Now that Sheena has joined the MAGSR family, she is experiencing kindness and love. Sheena is learning the rules of a household, basic commands, and the joy of a comfortable bed. At this time, Sheena is waiting patiently for a forever home that will provide her with the care and kindness she deserves. If Sheena sounds like a good match for your household, please ask to meet her today.

Updates:

Sheena was used for breeding all of her life until she was rescued with her eight puppies. She is loving life with her foster family and has fit in quite well. Sheena is housebroken, learning basic obedience and loves belly rubs. She will take belly rubs over treats. She is good with cats and small dogs, she plays gently with other dogs. She will growl if another dog comes near her food bowl while eating but she stops immediately when corrected. Sheena does have some health issues that she is being treated for. She is on antibiotics for a skin infection, she takes dasuquin for her joints. Sheena will have to have eye drops for the rest of her life because she has pannus and is partially blind. It is hard for her to see in the dark. But with all that she has been through, she is happy and accepting of meeting people with lots of tail wags and loves to be with her humans.

,

Sheena is a very affectionate girl. She loves snuggles and will actively seek attention but is respectful of our rules about no dogs on the furniture. She's getting along pretty well with the resident Male GSD, with only a few growls exchanged over dog beds. Sheena knows basic obedience, is fully housebroken and crate trained, and is picking up leash skills quickly. She is content to curl into a cushy bed and nap the day away and is always ready for a walk. Sheena prefers her toys without ears and tags and limbs, and is happy to fix them if they don't come that way. She likes to play ball as well. 

Due to her past, she's a little hand shy and startles at loud noises. She is wary of cars and really dislikes releasing air sounds (like air brakes on a bus or even opening a soda). Sheena is the most affectionate foster that I've ever had, and is the most gentle and sweet girl! Just an incredible dog!
