Maize

ADOPTED 03/10/2023!

Maize
Maize
Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 3 years 1 month
Color: Black & Red
Current Size: 70 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 70 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Basic Commands
Altered: Yes

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

Maize is finding her way through this crazy maze we humans call life, and unfortunately through the twist and turns, has found herself at a temporary dead end. Her former family loved her, but had a life changing event that has left this smart, calm, obedient, perfectly trained, and stunning girl in the care of MAGSR. 

We are excited to share what we know about Maize, and let us tell you - she is AH-MAIZE-ING!  Her history reads more like an Ivy-League education too!  She began her training with the breeder, Haus Juris, and finished her most recent training with Diamond Kennels. Since Maize was properly bred and has good bloodlines, she has an incredible temperament, is calm and possesses the traits of an absolute gem of a GSD.  Her training was proactive and not to address any particular behavioral issues. While at the vet and outside the home, she has 5-star behavior without the aid of sedation or muzzling and often was paid many compliments. There are no concerns of aggression towards humans, nor are there concerns with other dogs.  She is house trained (will cue by sitting near the door for a break), crate trained (responds to Kennel) and so much more. I suppose you can say the only issue that has been reported was Maize’s puzzlement of a rouge plastic bag flailing in the dark of night. 

Maize’s extensive training really shines while you’re out on a walk showing this beauty off - she will maintain your pace and obey every command, with her attention split between the smells or things around her and the owner during walks. Maize is a joy with strangers and does not often jump on her own accord (it’s hard for some of us humans not to ask for a hug from this stunner!).  She often does pay close attention when dogs (sometimes hackles go up) and people pass by, but that attention to both is clearly due to interest rather than territoriality or aggression. As having been properly socialized while she was a puppy, neighborhood dogs have routinely approached and she has displayed playfulness on every occasion and just wants to make friends. Maize has also been fully desensitized to loud noises, city noises, and the like and has never shown any alarm with cars driving by, honking, etc.

As if all that wasn’t enough already, Maize's best qualities are her gentle and loving personality, goofiness, physical fitness, general obedience, but also, her complete lack of aggression and mischievous behavior. Maize really does care about being a good dog and wants to please her owners. The only thing she needs to work on would be to help her manage her small bit of anxiety and excitement - this has been noted to happen sometimes in the car when she doesn’t know where we are going and is sometimes a bit over-excited home greetings.

As with any beauty, Maize enjoys days at the spa, and LOVES being brushed in-between spa days!  As with all German Shepherds, Maize will continue to grow and flourish when provided with the essentials - structure, boundaries, routines, guidance and training. If she sounds just as AH-MAIZE-ING to you as she does to us, then please find your way to MAGSR and ask to see Maize today!

Nova

ADOPTED 02/25/2023!

Nova
NovaNovaNovaNovaNovaNovaNovaNovaNovaNovaNovaNovaNovaNovaNovaNovaNovaNovaNovaNovaNova
Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Mix
Approximate Age: 2 years 2 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 64 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 70 lbs
Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

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

Nova was picked up as a stray in the south and brought to a shelter. Although she waited patiently for her family to come and claim her, no one came. Staff at the shelter fell in love with this sweet girl; however, due to an overwhelming number of dogs at the shelter, Nova was on borrowed time. Fortunately, the right people heard about Nova and started working together to find her a safe spot within the MAGSR family. We were able to help Nova move forward in the nick of time. 

Nova is a friendly, affectionate, and curious girl. As a young GSD, she is active and intelligent. It is important that Nova's forever family provide her with daily opportunities to exercise both her body and her mind as this will help her develop into a stable adult. Nova will thrive in a household that will provide her with the structure, routine, and leadership that all GSDs crave. Although we do not know anything about her life prior to her arrival at the shelter, it is clear that Nova was well socialized with other people and other dogs. It is critical that Nova's family continue to socialize her in controlled settings. When temporarily fostering with one of our volunteers, Nova seemed to have some knowledge of the rules of living in a home. She goes to the door when she needs to use the bathroom and crates well. She also seems to understand the importance of a comfortable bed and quickly gravitates to a dog bed or even the couch. As is true of any new dog, Nova will need time to adjust to the rules and routines of her forever family. However, she is more than ready to learn. Training will go a long way for Nova. Not only will training help Nova develop a strong and healthy bond with her forever family, but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. Nova is looking for a forever family that enjoys a playful and affectionate pup. If she sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet Nova today!

Updates:

The great things:

She's very affectionate, loves to cuddle, and is eager to please

Fully housebroken

Almost always silent.

Sleeps in her crate through the night

No separation anxiety that we've noticed

LOVES soft, fluffy beds

She has done great getting to know our other dog and sharing spaces together

Does not chew on or have any interest in non-dog toys (i.e. shoes, furniture, coats, etc.)

Walks well on a leash. No leash reactivity that we've noticed

More food motivated than toy motivated

She knows basic commands (sit, down, off, out, come, place)

She does very well with the "out" command when you want her to leave something alone

She also does well with "gentle" when you want her to not be rough with a toy or another dog

She obeys the "place" command pretty consistently

No resource guarding (food, toys, or people) that we've noticed

She enjoys car rides and does not get car sick

She did great going to Lowes on a little adventure and got lots of attention from other people in the store.

She's done great with not trying to eat people's food off of plates or jumping on the counter (she has not jumped on the counters at all). But she will need those behaviors reinforced because she is curious of the smells coming from the counter/plates. This has been easily corrected with the "out" command when she does get curious.

She's pretty sensitive to changes in tone of voice. So if she's not listening and you tell her a bit more sternly and/or lower tone she usually snaps to attention.

Things that need work:

Needs work on consistently obeying basic commands like sit and come. She knows what they mean but doesn't always obey the first time.

She needs practice getting comfortable having her collars put on. She doesn't mind the collars really but seems to be a little cautious of people putting them on. Nothing aggressive, more of a "do I really have to wear this" sort of pathetic face.

We have not tested her in direct contact around children, but based on passing them in the park she has no reaction to them at all. This would still need to be tested and always monitored closely.

Thor

ADOPTED 02/22/2023!

Thor
ThorThorThorThorThorThorThorThorThor
Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 5 years 2 months
Color: Black & tan
Current Size: 97 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 95 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Working on it
Altered: Yes

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

Thor is on an adventure in search of his ‘superhero’ family! We know a little about Thor, as he was an owner-surrender due to an unpredictable change in the household.  It was a very difficult decision for the family because he is a super dog, but they wanted to do what is best and brought Thor to us.

As a typical GSD, Thor is eager to please! He doesn’t always wear a cape, but when he does, it’s usually under a blanket on a couch next to you after a long walk, some play-time (catching bad-guys) so he can rest up for the next adventure.  Thor has lived with a toddler and is good with other dogs with the same focus - catching bad guys (possibly the evil squirrel that wrecks your lawn)! 

Thor loves his ‘super’-humans and wants to make sure his ‘superhuman’ family doesn’t emBARK on adventures without him, so he will need to be safely tucked away, possibly with a bad-guy defying puzzle of treats! Also, because Thor is a crime-fighting (squirrels) pup, he can sometimes have a delay in warming up to ladies - after all aren’t they all after him for his good looks?  He is a heart-breaker if you’re not careful!

Thor would thrive in a home with a family who is familiar or is eager to learn the ways of a true GSD - structure, boundaries, routines and guidance.  Thor will return the favor of being saved with superior loyalty…(mostly sloppy kisses and a shadow in the shape of a handsome GSD), if this sounds like the adventure you would like to emBARK upon, then ask to meet Thor today!

Loverboy (L.B.)

ADOPTED 02/19/2023!

L.B.

Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 3 years 4 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 65 lbs
Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

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

Handsome L.B. was picked up as a stray and brought to a shelter in the south. Although he was as friendly as can be, L.B. had hair loss, was emaciated, and tested positive for heartworms. A local rescue recognized that L.B. was a special guy that needed more care than the shelter could provide. As a result, they pulled L.B. with the hope that they could start his road to recovery while looking for a breed specific rescue that would find L.B. an amazing forever family. When we learned that L.B. needed help with the next step of his journey, we welcomed him to the MAGSR family. 

L.B. is a sweet, endearing, and lovable guy. Although we do not know anything about his past, it is evident that at some point he was well socialized with people and other dogs. As is true of all GSDs, L.B. will thrive with structure, routine, and leadership. He is hoping that his forever family enjoys long walks, playtime, and plenty of snuggles. True of all dogs, training is critical for L.B. Training will not only help L.B. build a strong, healthy bond with his forever family, but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. L.B. has waited patiently for his forever family. Could that be with you?

Updates:

I walked L.B. (Loverboy) on Sunday.  He was easy to leash up, loves treats, loves to follow his nose, and is a good looking youngster.  He is friendly, saw no reaction to other pups, jumped into the back seat of my car, without treat, and knows "sit".  Threw a paw in there when chicken was involved but that might have been accidental.  He does not appear to be interested in balls or other toys, but is still a fun companion, and will do a decent loose heel when prompted.  Just an all around friendly pup who needs to add a few pounds and  who will allow you to check his ears, paws and teeth and will throw in a few kisses to boot.

Ideal/Potential Size: 110 lbs
Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

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

Beaker is a big, handsome guy who has moved around a bit lately. Although his most recent home hoped to keep him forever, it was discovered that he was a little too interested in the horses of the farm where he lived. In the interest of keeping him and the horses safe, his family decided that it would be best if he found a family with different circumstances. Wanting to ensure that Beaker found a safe and loving forever family, they surrendered Beaker to MAGSR. We promised we would find this big guy an amazing home. 

Beaker is in many ways your typical GSD. He is intelligent, inquisitive about his surroundings, and observant. When first meeting new people he is friendly but takes a little time to let his full personality shine. However, given some time to adjust, Beaker enjoys a good lean-in and chin scratches. Although we do not know much about his past, we know that Beaker's future is bright. Beaker is looking for an active household that will provide him with the structure, routine, and leadership that all GSDs crave. He responds well to a calm and patient handler and seems to take cues nicely. Although he is still learning basic commands, Beaker is responsive and is likely to pick up expectations quickly. Training is critical to Beaker success. Not only will training help Beaker create a strong, healthy bond with his forever family, but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. Beaker is looking for a family that will commit to him for a lifetime. Could that family be you?

Altered: Yes

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

Laika and her buddy, Athena Mae, were surrendered to a local shelter as their family felt they could no longer afford the girls. Recognizing that the girls would be most successful in finding a forever family through a rescue, shelter staff began reaching out to GSD rescues to see if they had openings. As many rescues have been sitting at or near capacity this year, finding placement wasn't easy. However, shelter staff kept up the search and kept the girls safe and loved until they found placement. We welcomed the girls to the MAGSR family for the holiday season this year. 

Laika is a stunning lady. This intelligent girl enjoys the company of her people. Given clear direction and a confident handler, Laika is very responsive to the handler and quickly picks up new skills. Although Laika lived in a home prior to her arrival, we do not much about her previous life. As is true of any new dog, Laika will need time to adjust to her forever home. She will be most successful in a household that provides her with the structure, routine, and leadership that all GSDs crave. Laika is picking up new skills every day with our volunteers and seems to enjoy the opportunity to learn. Training will go a long way with this lovely lady. Not only will it help Laika develop into a good canine citizen, but it will also help her develop a strong and healthy bond with her forever family. Laika is patiently waiting for a forever family of her very own. Could that be with you?

Bunsen is a goofy and wiggly GSD. As a young guy, he is curious, intelligent, and energetic. Bunsen seems to enjoy meeting new people. Affectionate and interactive, he greets with tail wags and kisses. Although he definitely seems comfortable with new people, Bunsen is still learning about new places. He can be a little shy when encountering new things and is looking for a leader who will give him plenty of opportunities to experience the world around him.

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Piper was confiscated by a local shelter as she, and another dog, were victims of medical neglect. Recognizing that both dogs needed help, the shelter got them to safety and began evaluating options. As the dogs needed a significant amount of care, rescue pleas were sent out. Piper's buddy found placement immediately. When we learned about Piper's needs, our team decided that she would be a great addition to the MAGSR family. 

Piper's medical is extensive at this time. She arrived at the shelter emaciated, covered in flea dermatitis with open sores, unsteady on her feet, and carrying a baseball sized growth on her back leg. The shelter began the process of getting Piper comfortable and MAGSR has taken over her care. Our vetting team is working hard to address Piper's needs and ensure that she moves forward comfortably. Throughout this process Piper has been an absolute doll. She is gentle, affectionate and seems to adore anyone and everyone that gives her an ounce of attention. Although Piper has clearly been through a lot, she remains a sweetheart. Piper's care is expensive but she is beyond worth the cost. Please consider donating to Piper's care so that we can provide her with the medical support she needs while also helping other medical dogs.

Piper is a special girl. She is looking for a forever family that will provide her with the comfort, stability, and love that she deserves. Piper is a lovable girl who will bring endless snuggles to her forever family. If Piper sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today.

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Fritzy once lived in a home with his owner. He enjoyed the life most dogs hope to lead. However, his life changed drastically when his owner became disabled and could no longer properly care for him. Fritzy was placed outside on the property but received little interaction, food, or vetting care. Underlying allergies began to plague Fritzy and his skin became inflamed. Over time this condition worsened, leaving Fritzy with open sores, infections, several areas of missing fur, and underweight. When a couple of good samaritans became aware of Fritzy's situation, they intervened by bringing Fritzy food, clean water, and needed socialization. Although they made Fritzy's world better, they knew that Fritzy needed more. We were contacted to see if we could move Fritzy into our care so that he could be placed in a safe and loving forever home. How could we say no?

Fritzy joined the MAGSR family and has begun to heal. Although he has a bit of a journey ahead of him, we are working with our vetting partners to help Fritzy move forward. With a plan in place, we are honored to have the opportunity to watch him heal and try new adventures every day. As is true of all GSDs, Fritzy is looking for a home that will provide him with structure, routine and consistency. This will help him decompress and build a strong and stable relationship with his forever family. Fritzy will benefit from continued socialization in a structured manner. This will help him continue to learn about the world around him. With time, patience, and a little TLC, we know he will be joy and endless smiles to his forever family. If your family is ready to welcome a new furry friend, ask to meet Fritzy. He can't wait to find a safe and loving forever home.

DESCRIPTION:

Claire was picked up as a stray in the south. She was brought to an animal shelter where staff members immediately fell in love with this little love bug. Although staff knew that Claire was special and deserved a loving forever family, in an overcrowded shelter Claire didn't have much time. Fortunately, the right people got involved and contacted MAGSR. We were able to work together to pull Claire and keep her safe and loved until she could move up the coast to MAGSR.

Claire is adorable, affectionate and goofy. She loves people and is thrilled to interact with everyone. As a young and energetic girl, Claire is still learning manners and the general rules of living in a home. However, this lucky lady has had the chance to live with a foster family which has helped her start learning the ins and outs of living in a home. As Claire moves forward, she will thrive in an environment with clear structure, routine, and leadership. Training will go a long way with this girl. Not only will it help her develop a healthy bond with her forever family, but it will also help her become a stable and confident canine citizen. Claire is hoping her forever family enjoys playtime, snuggles, treats, and lots of toys. She knows that the right family is out there and is waiting patiently to meet them.

DESCRIPTION:

Stunning Mikah was loved by her family. However, due to a change in circumstances, they were unable to provide her with the care they felt she deserved. Knowing that Mikah deserved an amazing home that would provide her with a lifetime of love, her owner made the difficult decision to surrender her. We promised Mikah's family that we would find her an amazing forever family. 

Mikah is a young, active, and intelligent girl. She is quick to learn new things and responsive to the handler. Typical of most young GSDs, Mikah has a lot of good energy that will need to be burned appropriately on a daily basis. She will thrive in an environment where she has structure, routine, and consistency. Having lived in a household, Mikah has already learned some of the ins and outs of living in a home. However, as is true of any new dog, Mikah will need time to adjust to her forever home. She is a big fan of toys and will happily play with you, but she can also keep herself entertained. As Mikah moves forward, training and continued socialization are essential. Training will not only help Mikah develop a strong and healthy bond with her family, but it will also help develop into a good canine citizen. Mikah is looking for a family that will commit to her for a lifetime, could that be with you?

Axel

ADOPTED 01/07/2023!

Axel
AxelAxelAxelAxelAxelAxelAxelAxelAxelAxelAxelAxelAxelAxelAxelAxelAxelAxelAxel
Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 4 years 1 month
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 65 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 60 - 65 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Yes
Altered: Yes

Good With Kids: Older kids, over 16
Good With Cats: No
Other Dogs OK: Yes, Females Only
DESCRIPTION:

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

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

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

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

Updates:

Axel has made several strides over the last few months. Lucky to have been living in a loving home, Axel was able to complete his heartworm treatment in the comfort and safety of a household. He can now boast that he is heartworm free and ready to move forward. Crate trained and housebroken, Axel's time living with a family has clearly had a positive impact and helped him make significant strides. This is particularly significant for a dog that had never experienced the joy of living in a safe and loving home. Although still working on a few allergy related skin issues, Axel is moving forward and getting the care and support he needs to continue this process. As training is essential for all dogs, it was decided that Axel would benefit from a board and train situation where he can continue to learn about the world around him and develop a healthy response to new environments and items. Training will also help Axel develop into a stable and confident dog. Although training is expensive, we know that with a solid foundation in place Axel will continue to grow and develop critical skills that will help him moving forward. Please consider donating to Axel's training. Your donation will not only help us meet Axel's needs but it will also help us support other dogs with more significant needs as we move forward. Please watch for updates as Axel continues on his new adventure. 

Axel has been with us in foster for more than a month now and he has really come out of his shell! Axel loves playing ball and long farm walks! Axel loves head scratches and being with his people! Axel is house broken and doing well with his basic obedience! He will soon be a graduate of a four week board and train and has absolutely rocked his training! Axel has continued to build confidence each and every day! Axel is a loyal guy who wants nothing more than to please his people. Axel could be an only dog but would not mind the company of a female friend. Axel should only be placed in a home with children 16 and over as little ones may make him nervous. If Axel sounds like a match for your family please apply now! --

Axel is doing great with us and Yuki — my wife calls him snuggle bunny.  He is calm and walks really well on a leash - and is non-reactive to other dogs (as long as Yuki does not go bananas, then he joins in with a half-hearted woof to be supportive).   He has played with Yuki’s BFF, an 8 month old labradoodle, and it was fine.  He loves to run in the backyard and to go on walks.  And he really loves his meals!

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

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

The winter puppies - Stormy, Flurry, and Mittens - were surrendered to a shelter in the south. Although shelter staff knew these little ladies deserved loving homes of their own, they knew these ladies needed immediate help. The shelter was at capacity and owner surrenders are often the first dogs euthanized. Doing everything they could to help these girls move forward, a plea went out for help. When we heard their plea, our team immediately began putting plans in place to help all three girls move forward. 

All three little ladies joined the MAGSR family for the new year. Clearly well-socialized, these ladies are friendly, active, and intelligent. It is evident that someone did work with them to provide a foundation for success. Although these little ladies are absolutely delightful, please remember that puppies are a lot of work. Puppies will whine, chew on inappropriate things, have accidents, and fill your home with puppy antics. With structure, routine, and leadership, these girls will develop into the stable and confident dogs we know they are destined to become. If a winter puppy sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet them today!

DESCRIPTION:

MAGSR received a call from another local rescue that a large group of puppies were in need of placement as soon as possible. In total there were 21 pups who would need rescue placement. As this was too many puppies for one group to support, the hope was that we could work together to get everyone into safe and loving homes. With 8 pups finding safety with the other rescue, our team began working together to see if we could find loving foster homes for the remaining 13. Although this was a rather large undertaking, team MAGSR worked quickly to put everything in place. The "Christmas Puppies" - Rudolph, Hermy, Yukon, Clarice, Moonracer, Donner, Vixen, Claus, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Comet, and Cupid - have arrived and are hoping to find forever homes for the holidays.

Having been born in what appears to be less than ideal situations, the "Christmas Puppies" arrived having missed out on early vetting, exposure to new environments, and socialization with people outside their immediate caregivers. Now that they are living with MAGSR foster families, their opportunities are endless. All 13 puppies are going to see our amazing vetting partners so that we can begin vaccinations and make sure that everyone is healthy. In their foster homes, these puppies are learning about toys, treats, regular meals, and the comfort of soft, warm beds. They are also beginning the important process of learning the ins and outs of living in a home. As very intelligent pups everyone is excited to begin. As they move forward, it is critical that their new families provide the "Christmas puppies" with regular socialization with people and other animals. A well socialized pup will become a stable adult. Although these babies are absolutely adorable, please remember that puppies are a lot of work. They will whine, chew, have accidents, and fill your home with endless puppy antics. With time, training, patience, and socialization, they will develop into good canine citizens. If you are interested in welcoming a member of the "Christmas puppy" litter into your household, ask to meet them today!

Updates:

Donner's brother, Rudolph, joined the rescue with some unexpected medical needs that have required extra support.  He could really use your help.

Working closely with our amazing veterinary teams, Rudolph has begun seeing his regular vet to address typical puppy vetting needs as well as a specialist to address concerns about a preputial defect. Although it is unknown if this condition was congenital or trauma based, Rudolph needs a contrast study and preputial reconstruction in order to correct the defect and help him move forward. When combining Rudolph's presurgical care, surgical consult, contrast study, and surgical reconstruction, his care will cost more than four-thousand dollars. Having been a very good puppy throughout this process, we know that Santa has Rudolph on the top of his "nice" list and is working on finding him the perfect forever family. With surgery scheduled in early December, Rudolph is hoping to be healed for the holidays. Rudolph's care is very expensive, but we know that this special guy is worth the cost. Please consider supporting Rudolph for the holidays and donate to his care. Not only will your support help us get this little lovebug the help that he needs to move forward, but it will also help us continue to support other dogs with medical needs.

Current Size: 70 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: Large

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

Handsome Duke was a stray in the south. He was an amazing bus stop buddy to several children in the neighborhood where he was living. Although Duke was a neighborhood favorite, the community knew that this sweetheart needed help. When some trauma occurred that caused a bad tail injury, a family stepped in and found him help with another rescuer. Luckily, she had a space for Duke and welcomed him into her home to help him get the care he needed. As his foster worked with him, she recognized that Duke would be best placed in a rescue so that he could get the care needed to move forward. When MAGSR heard about Duke's story, we stepped in and welcomed him to the family. 

When Duke arrived in his foster home, he was in a lot of pain. No one could quite imagine what could have happened to his tail. He had been in the community for a few months being fed by a few local families and showed up one day missing most of his tail and in unimaginable pain. Our first step was to get the pain under control and start antibiotics. Once these pieces were in place, Duke's foster made sure he got to a great surgeon who amputated the remainder of Duke's tail. Although the healing process took time and patience, Duke was an excellent patient. He is now completely healed and ready to move forward.  

Good with dogs of all sizes, Duke has enjoyed playtime with his foster siblings. He has clearly learned some social skills even with his difficult beginning. Starting to work on basic commands, Duke is now ready to learn all about being a good canine citizen. Looking for a loving forever home, Duke will thrive with structure, routine, and leadership. Training will go a long way with this guy. Not only will it help him develop a strong and healthy bond with his forever family, it will also help him develop into a stable and confident adult dog. Duke is looking for a forever family that enjoys long walks, car rides, and possibly the occasional car ride treat. If he sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet Duke today.

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

Stunning Miss Chloe and her buddy, a great pyrenees, showed up at a dog-friendly household on a chilly September morning. Seeing that the dogs were social and seemed to do well with people if given time to adjust, the home owner began looking for their family. Unfortunately, when the family was found, they made it clear that the dogs were no longer wanted and were not welcome back in their home. Recognizing that both dogs would do best in breed specific rescues, the finder had the dogs surrendered and started working with rescue friends to send out a plea for both pups. Chloe's buddy found placement right away, but many GSD rescues were already over capacity. Word spread that Chloe needed placement. When we heard that this lovely lady needed help, MAGSR immediately welcomed her to the family. 

Chloe is in many ways your typical, young GSD. She is active, intelligent, and has endless energy. Motivated and quick to pick up new skills, Chloe has been learning sit, wait, heel, leave it, kennel, place, and recall. It's amazing how quickly she learns. Of course, knowing her treat of choice helps - cheese! As is true of the breed, she will test the handler. A calm and confident handler would be best. Further training will go a long way with Chloe as she already has a foundation to build upon. Training is essential for all dogs as it not only provides everyone with the opportunity to build a strong, healthy bond, but it also helps young dogs, like Chloe, with the opportunity to develop into stable adult dogs. Having had the opportunity to learn about the ins and outs of living in a home, Chloe is both crate trained and housebroken. She is cues with barking when she needs to go outside and takes care of her business quickly. When outside, Chloe is happy to bounce around or simply enjoy the sunshine. She is clearly an adventurous girl who loves the fresh air. She will likely make a great walking or running buddy. Not well socialized with new people, Chloe is good with people of all ages but needs some time to adjust especially when meeting new adults. A slow and patient hand is best during introductions. Although adults take a minute to adjust to, Chloe adores children. Gentle and responsive with the littles, Chloe is definitely a special girl. Having she lived with another dog, Chloe does know some doggy social cues. However, she is most successful with slow introductions to new dogs. When given the opportunity to develop a relationship over time, Chloe does enjoy the company of other dogs, particularly large, male dogs. With structure, routine, and clear leadership, Chloe will thrive. If this incredible girl sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet her today!

Good With Kids: Yes

Other Dogs OK: No
DESCRIPTION:

Lacy was surrendered to us due to a baby on the way and there would be no room for Lacy. It is obvious she was not well cared for as she came to us obese, weighing 107 lbs. and should only weigh around 70 lbs.  She also came to us with a skin infection and some fur loss, which our vet feels is caused by lack of care and poor quality food.  She is being treated for the skin infection, put on a diet, good quality food, along with exercise that she obviously did not get in her last home.  She is settling into her foster home and dealing with the changes of her new life.  She is confused with some whining, but that is expected with the changes.  She is very sweet and friendly with everyone she has met. 

Updates:

Hi everyone, meet Lacy! Lacy is super sweet with humans and children.  She is almost six years old, knows some basic commands, and loves to fetch!  She also likes to play soccer, chew on Nylabones and be with her people.  She does have a skin allergy that requires daily medicine.  Lacy is on a weight management plan so she can slim down a few pounds (summer is coming and she really wants a two piece swimsuit).  Lacy is scared of bicycles and golf carts. She is housebroken and crate trained. If you are looking for a furry co worker to rest in a dog bed while you work, play some low key fetch on breaks, go for a short stroll after work or on lunch break, Lacy is the dog for you!!!  Lacy has a propensity to resource guard and protect from other dogs (unsure about cats) so she would be best as an only dog.  If you have any questions let me know!

Lacy has settled in well at her foster home.  She is a pro at keeping all wild creatures out of the backyard.  Her soccer skills are something to behold.  Her leash walking skills are coming along nicely. And all her beautiful hair has grown back.   She does need a daily pill for her skin condition and most likely will need to remain on the pill for the rest of her life.  She is a wonderful house guest and always lets me know when something unusual is at the front door.  She is not fond of thunder storms or bicycles.  She mostly ignores other dogs while out on walks, unless they try to approach.  She doesn't get on furniture and takes treats nicely.  And she is a favorite at the vets office.  If you are looking for a more older mature lady, who will make a great companion Lacy would be a wonderful addition to your family.

Update 23 November 2022: Lacy has been in the rescue for over a year and is really hoping to find a family she can call her own this holiday season.   Are you looking for a dog that is already housebroken, knows some basic obedience and is happy to lounge or play fetch in the yard ?! If so, Lacy is the girl for you!  Lacy is like a fine wine; she only gets better with age and she absolutely adores her humans. Lacy has 3 main loves: people, jolly balls, food and marrow bones, in that order.  Lacy had a rough past as she's been neglected and abandoned by the ones who were entrusted to provide her a loving home but she is putting that behind her and ready to start fresh.  Lacy is intelligent, inquisitive, lovable, and protective.  As is her true nature she is a herder and wants everyone and everything to be corralled, to include cyclists as she is upset when they pass her by but will gladly jog next to or in front of them.   She is great at keeping her humans on a schedule and will vocally let you know if you are late for a feeding or letting her outside.  She has blossomed into a beautiful shepherd with a beautiful coat with proper nutrition, medication, and TLC.  Lacy would prefer to be the only dog in the household.  Lacy would enjoy a family to show her love, attention, structure and patience.  She is such a good girl who has a lot of love to give. If Lacy sounds like a good fit for you, ask to meet her today!

Loverboy (L.B.)

ADOPTED 12/22/2022!

L.B.

Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 3 years 4 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 65 lbs
Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

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

Handsome L.B. was picked up as a stray and brought to a shelter in the south. Although he was as friendly as can be, L.B. had hair loss, was emaciated, and tested positive for heartworms. A local rescue recognized that L.B. was a special guy that needed more care than the shelter could provide. As a result, they pulled L.B. with the hope that they could start his road to recovery while looking for a breed specific rescue that would find L.B. an amazing forever family. When we learned that L.B. needed help with the next step of his journey, we welcomed him to the MAGSR family. 

L.B. is a sweet, endearing, and lovable guy. Although we do not know anything about his past, it is evident that at some point he was well socialized with people and other dogs. As is true of all GSDs, L.B. will thrive with structure, routine, and leadership. He is hoping that his forever family enjoys long walks, playtime, and plenty of snuggles. True of all dogs, training is critical for L.B. Training will not only help L.B. build a strong, healthy bond with his forever family, but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. L.B. has waited patiently for his forever family. Could that be with you?

Updates:

I walked L.B. (Loverboy) on Sunday.  He was easy to leash up, loves treats, loves to follow his nose, and is a good looking youngster.  He is friendly, saw no reaction to other pups, jumped into the back seat of my car, without treat, and knows "sit".  Threw a paw in there when chicken was involved but that might have been accidental.  He does not appear to be interested in balls or other toys, but is still a fun companion, and will do a decent loose heel when prompted.  Just an all around friendly pup who needs to add a few pounds and  who will allow you to check his ears, paws and teeth and will throw in a few kisses to boot.

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Ollie was picked up as a stray and brought to a shelter in the south. Although he waited patiently for his family to come and claim him, no one stepped forward for this handsome guy. Shelter staff worked hard to try to help Ollie find a forever family; however, with shelter numbers over capacity, Ollie was scheduled to be euthanized. Recognizing that this guy deserved a life and a family of his very own, a final plea went out. Fortunately, we heard Ollie's story and stepped in to help him move forward. 

Ollie is a friendly and interactive guy. He simply loves everyone. Charismatic and goofy, it is hard to keep from smiling in his presence. Good with people and with dogs, Ollie was clearly well-socialized at some point along his journey. He is an all around good guy with your typical GSD energy. As a young GSD, Ollie is looking for a forever family that will provide him with the structure, routine, and leadership that all dogs crave. As we do not know anything about Ollie's past, we do not know how much experience has had in a household. However, based upon his stable personality and friendly demeanor, he has known love and companionship. Ollie, like any new dog, will likely need a little time to adjust to the rules and routines of his forever home. However, with patience and clear routines he will thrive. Training will go a long way with Ollie. Not only will this help him bond with his forever family but it will also help him develop the skills needed to be a good canine citizen. Ollie is looking for a forever family that will love him for a lifetime. If this sweet guy sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet him today.

DESCRIPTION:

Young Jockey was picked up as a stray and brought to a local shelter quite a few times. This last time Jockey got off the farm her family made the tough decision to surrender her as they were afraid she may get hit by a car. Recognizing that a GSD is often most successful if placed through a breed specific rescue, shelter staff worked with MAGSR to help move Jockey forward. We are so excited to have welcomed Jockey to the MAGSR family. 

Thriving on attention and interaction, Jockey loves to be doted upon and is incredibly outgoing. She is certainly a work in progress as she doesn't quite realize that she is a full-grown shepherd and certainly needs some work on her manners. Jockey will be a delight in training class. Not only will training help Jockey bond to her new family but it will also help her develop the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. Training helps to focus the mind and develop confidence. Jockey will benefit from both. 

Jockey has not had many interactions with dogs that we are aware of and as a result, we are still learning about her doggy socialization skills.

Jockey is a work in progress and incredibly worth it! If you are interested in helping Jockey learn the good life please inquire.

Dasher's brother, Rudolph, joined the rescue with some unexpected medical needs that have required extra support.  He could really use your help.

Working closely with our amazing veterinary teams, Rudolph has begun seeing his regular vet to address typical puppy vetting needs as well as a specialist to address concerns about a preputial defect. Although it is unknown if this condition was congenital or trauma based, Rudolph needs a contrast study and preputial reconstruction in order to correct the defect and help him move forward. When combining Rudolph's presurgical care, surgical consult, contrast study, and surgical reconstruction, his care will cost more than four-thousand dollars. Having been a very good puppy throughout this process, we know that Santa has Rudolph on the top of his "nice" list and is working on finding him the perfect forever family. With surgery scheduled in early December, Rudolph is hoping to be healed for the holidays. Rudolph's care is very expensive, but we know that this special guy is worth the cost. Please consider supporting Rudolph for the holidays and donate to his care. Not only will your support help us get this little lovebug the help that he needs to move forward, but it will also help us continue to support other dogs with medical needs. 

Update: Dasher is so sweet and has done well in our home.  He has come such a long way since the pups were rescued.  He loves our dogs, he's very playful, and has come out of his shell and really seeks affection with people. He is good with kids, teens and adults.  He's also making great progress with house-training.

DESCRIPTION:

Lucy's family fell on hard times and could no longer afford to provide her with the care that they knew she deserved. As a result, they decided to surrender her to a local shelter where they hoped that Lucy would find a forever family that would provide her with a lifetime of love. Although the shelter staff recognized that Lucy was an incredible girl, they also knew that shepherds are a special breed that are often most successful when placed within a breed specific rescue. When asked if we could welcome Lucy into the MAGSR family, we immediately stepped forward. 

Lovely Lucy is an interactive, intelligent, and affectionate girl. It is obvious that her family worked hard to socialize her with new people and animals. Lucy enjoys the company of people of all ages. She grew up with kids and is accustomed to their activities, sounds, and movements. Lucy also lived with cats. Although she never hurt them, she was known to chase them for fun. Having lived in a household, Lucy knows many of the ins and outs of living in a home. However, as is true of any new dog, she will need time to adjust to the structures and routines of her forever home. Lucy will thrive in an environment with structure, routine, and leadership. Training will go a long way with this lovely lady. Not only will it help her develop a strong, healthy bond with her forever family, but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. Lucy is looking for a family that will love her for a lifetime, could that be with you?

DESCRIPTION:

MAGSR received a call from another local rescue that a large group of puppies were in need of placement as soon as possible. In total there were 21 pups who would need rescue placement. As this was too many puppies for one group to support, the hope was that we could work together to get everyone into safe and loving homes. With 8 pups finding safety with the other rescue, our team began working together to see if we could find loving foster homes for the remaining 13. Although this was a rather large undertaking, team MAGSR worked quickly to put everything in place. The "Christmas Puppies" - Rudolph, Hermy, Yukon, Clarice, Moonracer, Donner, Vixen, Claus, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Comet, and Cupid - have arrived and are hoping to find forever homes for the holidays.

Having been born in what appears to be less than ideal situations, the "Christmas Puppies" arrived having missed out on early vetting, exposure to new environments, and socialization with people outside their immediate caregivers. Now that they are living with MAGSR foster families, their opportunities are endless. All 13 puppies are going to see our amazing vetting partners so that we can begin vaccinations and make sure that everyone is healthy. In their foster homes, these puppies are learning about toys, treats, regular meals, and the comfort of soft, warm beds. They are also beginning the important process of learning the ins and outs of living in a home. As very intelligent pups everyone is excited to begin. As they move forward, it is critical that their new families provide the "Christmas puppies" with regular socialization with people and other animals. A well socialized pup will become a stable adult. Although these babies are absolutely adorable, please remember that puppies are a lot of work. They will whine, chew, have accidents, and fill your home with endless puppy antics. With time, training, patience, and socialization, they will develop into good canine citizens. If you are interested in welcoming a member of the "Christmas puppy" litter into your household, ask to meet them today!

Updates:

Prancer has taken some time to overcome her rough start and start to take comfort in the people around her. As such, she is slower to warm up to new people but with patience, some ear scratches, treats and toys, you're rewarded with a sweet and comical companion! Prancer has excellent toy and ball drive and would be a great candidate for dog sports (FAST Cat or lure coursing anybody?). Not only does she have the drive itself but she is already perfecting her retrieval and "out"!when motivated with a great toy, she really has no fear and will show off her athleticisim, climbing, jumping and running over or into anything! She does great with another well adjusted dog to learn from-- she tends to blossom when she is with another dog who enjoys her company. She is very respectful of other dogs cues, but definitely appreciates a dog who wants to rough house with her. She does well with dog savvy cats but will chase if they run, so that is a work in progress for any family with feline companions. With a large amount of malinois in her lineage, she learns very fast and loves to have opportunities to work her brain and she has high energy levels that allow her to be an excellent play and exercise companion.

DESCRIPTION:

Ada and her buddy, Amelia, found themselves in a tough situation when their owner got into some trouble and the girls were confiscated. Although they were brought to a shelter where they waited for a forever family that would help them move forward, the girls were not one of the lucky ones that found a home. Staff members adored these girls and kept hoping to find them homes; however, with overcrowding at the shelter and no options available, the girls were placed on the euthanasia list. A final plea went out for help. Fortunately, this plea reached MAGSR. With no time to spare, we immediately stepped up and welcomed both girls into the family. 

Ada and Amelia are incredibly sweet girls. Ada has done very well with new people and children. However, she can be a little shy at first and would prefer a family that will be patient as she gains confidence. Ada is looking for a forever family that will provide her with the structure, routine, and leadership that all GSDs crave. Clearly well socialized with other dogs, Ada seems to understand the ins and outs of the doggy world. Although we know that Ada is a love, we do not know anything about her past. As a result, she may need a little patience in her forever home learning the ins and outs of being part of a family. Training will go a long way with Ada. Not only will training help her develop a strong and healthy bond with her forever family, but it will also help her grow into a stable and confident canine citizen. Ada is looking for a forever family that will commit to her for a lifetime. Could that be with you?

DESCRIPTION:

Sir Axyl was picked up as a stray and brought to a shelter. Although he was adopted out quickly, he was found running loose in a neighboring town a few months later. Based upon his condition, Sir Axyl had not been treated well. He was emaciated, missing fur, and in sad condition. Recognizing that Sir Axyl deserved to find a forever family that would love and care for him the way he deserved, the shelter began looking for a breed specific rescue that would find Sir Axyl the perfect placement. When we heard about his story, we knew that we needed to help. Team MAGSR immediately began putting plans together to welcome this sweet boy to the family. 

 

Sir Axyl is one of the dogs who makes the world a happier place. He is stable, friendly, and loves everyone. Good with people of all ages, Sir Axyl enjoys the company of his people especially when they are open to a few snuggles. Good with other dogs, Sir Axyl is patient and friendly. Although we do not know anything about his past, we do know that Sir Axyl has known love and kindness at some point in his life and deserves so much more. Having the benefit of living in a foster home, Sir Axyl loves a warm bed and regular meals. He is housebroken and seems to understand many of the rules of a household. However, he will need time to adjust to his forever home. Already knowing a few commands, Sir Axyl is a rockstar on leash. However, further training is essential. Training will not only help Sir Axyl further develop his skills, but it will also help him build a strong and healthy relationship with his forever family. If Sir Axyl sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet him today!

They are also beginning the important process of learning the ins and outs of living in a home. As very intelligent pups everyone is excited to begin. As they move forward, it is critical that their new families provide the "Christmas puppies" with regular socialization with people and other animals. A well socialized pup will become a stable adult. Although these babies are absolutely adorable, please remember that puppies are a lot of work. They will whine, chew, have accidents, and fill your home with endless puppy antics. With time, training, patience, and socialization, they will develop into good canine citizens. If you are interested in welcoming a member of the "Christmas puppy" litter into your household, ask to meet them today!

Hermy's brother, Rudolph, joined the rescue with some unexpected medical needs that have required extra support.  He could really use your help.

Working closely with our amazing veterinary teams, Rudolph has begun seeing his regular vet to address typical puppy vetting needs as well as a specialist to address concerns about a preputial defect. Although it is unknown if this condition was congenital or trauma based, Rudolph needs a contrast study and preputial reconstruction in order to correct the defect and help him move forward. When combining Rudolph's presurgical care, surgical consult, contrast study, and surgical reconstruction, his care will cost more than four-thousand dollars. Having been a very good puppy throughout this process, we know that Santa has Rudolph on the top of his "nice" list and is working on finding him the perfect forever family. With surgery scheduled in early December, Rudolph is hoping to be healed for the holidays. Rudolph's care is very expensive, but we know that this special guy is worth the cost. Please consider supporting Rudolph for the holidays and donate to his care. Not only will your support help us get this little lovebug the help that he needs to move forward, but it will also help us continue to support other dogs with medical needs.

DESCRIPTION:

MAGSR received a call from another local rescue that a large group of puppies were in need of placement as soon as possible. In total there were 21 pups who would need rescue placement. As this was too many puppies for one group to support, the hope was that we could work together to get everyone into safe and loving homes. With 8 pups finding safety with the other rescue, our team began working together to see if we could find loving foster homes for the remaining 13. Although this was a rather large undertaking, team MAGSR worked quickly to put everything in place. The "Christmas Puppies" - Rudolph, Hermy, Yukon, Clarice, Moonracer, Donner, Vixen, Claus, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Comet, and Cupid - have arrived and are hoping to find forever homes for the holidays.

Having been born in what appears to be less than ideal situations, the "Christmas Puppies" arrived having missed out on early vetting, exposure to new environments, and socialization with people outside their immediate caregivers. Now that they are living with MAGSR foster families, their opportunities are endless.

Theo

ADOPTED 11/21/2022!


TheoTheoTheoTheoTheo
Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Mix
Approximate Age: 2 years 6 months
Color: Tan & White
Current Size: 55 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 60 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Basic Commands
Altered: Yes

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

Theo was found dumped on a country road with another pup. Both pups were lucky as they were picked up by another rescue and brought to safety. Although they waited patiently for a family to claim them, no one came forward for either dog. Recognizing that these babies needed a rescue that could move them forward into safe and loving homes, both babies were transferred into MAGSR's care. Theo was adopted out as a baby. His family provided him with socialization and training opportunities, which has helped him develop the skills needed to meet with success. Unfortunately, Theo's family could no longer care for him. As a result, they reached out to MAGSR to return him to our care. We promised we would find Theo the perfect forever family. 

This is a sweet, interactive, and playful boy. Having been well-socialized with dogs of all sizes, Theo enjoys the company of his furry companions and understands doggy social structure. Theo has also had the opportunity to socialize with people. Although he enjoys the company of a variety of people, he is uncomfortable with children. The fast movements, loud sounds, and sometimes less than gentle touches from children, can be intimidating to many animals. As a result, Theo is looking for a forever family without children so that he can enjoy a life without potential stressors. Having lived in a home, Theo has learned the ins and outs of family life. He is crate trained and housebroken. He greatly enjoys a comfortable bed and loves cuddles. Well versed with toys, Theo can happily play on his own or with a buddy. His goofy personality will keep you smiling. Having completed basic obedience, Theo already knows a lot of commands and has a great foundation. However, continued training is a must. Training is essential as it will not only help Theo develop a strong, healthy bond with his forever family, but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. If your family is looking for an amazing pup with a great foundation of skills, ask to meet Theo today.

Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 2 years 5 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 62 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 70 lbs
Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

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

Handsome Gunther was picked up as a stray and brought to a high-kill shelter. Although he waited patiently for his family to claim him, no one stepped forward to bring him home. The moment his stray hold was completed, Gunther was in immediate danger as many dogs at this shelter do not make it out alive. Recognizing that this sweet guy deserved a chance, several groups began working to network Gunther. Fortunately, the right group heard about his need and welcomed him to safety while they looked for a breed specific rescue with an opening for this boy. When we heard that Gunther needed a safe place to land, our team immediately moved to welcome him to the MAGSR family. 

Gunther is an active, engaging, and intelligent guy. As a young shepherd, he has endless energy to burn. Gunther is looking for a family that will help him exercise both his body and his mind on a daily basis. As is true of all shepherds, Gunther will thrive with structure, routine, and leadership. Although we do not know anything about his past, we do know that Gunther is ready to move forward. Recognizing that Gunther deserved the opportunity to decompress and adjust to the joys of living in a home, one of our amazing foster families stepped up and welcomed him to their home. They are already working with Gunther to teach him the ins and outs of living in a home. As he moves forward, Gunther will need to participate in training. Training is essential as it will not only help Gunther develop a strong and healthy bond with his forever family, but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. Gunther is looking for a family that will love him for a lifetime. Could that be with you?
