DESCRIPTION:

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

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

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

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

Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 4 years 4 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 45 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 50 lbs
Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

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

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

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

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

Miles

ADOPTED 03/07/2022!


MilesMiles
Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Mix
Approximate Age: 2 years 4 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 11 lbs
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:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Updates:

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

DESCRIPTION:

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

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

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

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

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

Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No

Good With Kids: Older kids, over 16
Good With Cats: Yes

DESCRIPTION:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Handsome Adonis was picked up as a stray in the south. When his microchip was run it became clear that Adonis had a bit of a history. He had been abandoned, adopted, and abandoned a second time. However, even with all of the upheaval in his life, Adonis remains a friendly and interactive guy. When no one came to claim Adonis, several rescue groups came together to help this guy move forward. We learned about Adonis' need for rescue placement and knew that he would be an excellent addition to the MAGSR family. 

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

Obedience Trained: No, I'm a puppy!
Altered: Yes

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

Precious Diamond was surrendered to a local shelter when her family could no longer care for her. Although they loved Diamond, they felt that she deserved a family that could give her the comfort, safety, and routine that all GSDs crave. This was a very difficult decision. However, Diamond's family felt this was in her best interest. Although Diamond was unsure at the shelter and needed a little time to warm up to new people, shelter staff could tell that this girl was special. Recognizing that shepherds struggle in shelters, staff members reached out to MAGSR to see if we could help Diamond move forward. Really, who could say no to this girl?

Diamond is a lovely girl. Not yet a year old, Diamond is in many ways your typical, young shepherd. She is energetic, intelligent, and curious about her environment. However, as is true of many dogs, she can be a little hesitant with new people and new situations. High-value treats go a long way with Diamond. It is essential that Diamond's forever family continues to build her confidence and socialize her. This will help Diamond develop into a stable adult shepherd. As a long-haired shepherd, she has a lovely coat but will need a family to keep her brushed in order to avoid mats. Diamond was groomed upon arrival to the MAGSR family. She did very well with her bath and seems to enjoy a little love and attention. We are still getting to know this special girl and will post updates as we learn more. If this lovely girl sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet her today.

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

Lovely Zara was trapped locally and brought to a shelter. Recognizing that this girl may have a family looking for her, shelter staff listed on their stray hold.  Although Zara waited patiently for her family to claim her, no one arrived to take her home. As Zara decompressed it in the shelter, it became clear to shelter staff that she had not received the care or socialization that all dogs need. It is critical that Zara is given time to adjust to new people and situations. Although shelter staff worked hard to help Zara begin to move forward, they knew that she would be most successful if placed with a breed specific rescue. When we got the call to help Zara move forward, we immediately welcomed her to the MAGSR family.

As Ms. Zara has begun to settle into her foster home, we are beginning to learn about her strengths and needs. We have learned that with patience and kindness this lovely girl warms up quickly. Due to her history and clear lack of experience, we feel that Zara would be best suited for a quiet household that will provide Zara with the time, patience, and leadership she needs to move forward. Training is an essential aspect of the recovery process, particularly, with a fearful dog. Training will provide a confidence building activity and a socialization opportunity which will help Zara gain stability and trust. Although her humans have failed Zara in the past, she is ready to move forward with a family that will provide her with the love and safety she deserves. Is your family the right match for her?

DESCRIPTION:

Jed's family loved him dearly and made the difficult decision to return him to MAGSR as they felt they could no longer give him the structure and time he needed to live his best life. Although this was a difficult decision, Jed's family knew he deserved every opportunity to find a new family who would love him and could dedicate the time and energy needed to properly care for him. We promised them that we would make sure that Jed found the perfect home. 

Jed recently transitioned into his foster home and we are still learning about him. As a result, Jed is still acclimating to his surroundings and does seem to feel most content in a well lit open space; however, he has slept in an impact crate with the door open all night.  He is curious but cautious of new things. Due to some anxiety, Jed will pace incessantly until he is comfortable or tired.  He seems to enjoy the company of dogs but their interactions. At this time those interactions have been limited and he can be a little intrusive. Jed is in many ways just a giant puppy in his mannerism. He will thrice in a household with a family that is dedicated to him and willing to work through his insecurities and anxieties.  As a treat motivated guy, Jed has quickly discovered the importance of looking to his handler for guidance and direction. This will make training with him easier. As is true of all dogs, training is essential as it will not only help Jed adjust to his new household but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. If Jed sounds like the right match for your household, please ask to meet him today.

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

Happy-go-lucky Bacchus was picked up as a stray. Recognizing that this young guy simply needed a chance to move forward, another rescue provided him with a safe place to stay while they searched for an opening with a breed specific rescue in another region. When we heard that Bacchus needed support to move forward, MAGSR stepped in and welcomed this guy to the rescue. 

Bacchus is in many ways your typical young shepherd. He is energetic, bouncy, playful, and talkative. He enjoys the company of other people and other dogs. Although Bacchus has met children and has done very well with them, he would be best suited for older children as he has yet to learn that hugs are not always necessary. While waiting to move into the MAGSR family, Bacchus regularly participated in playgroups with other large dogs. He definitely enjoyed his daily playtime and will need a household that can appropriately help him expend his energy on a daily basis. As is true of all shepherds, Bacchus will thrive in a household that will provide structure, routine, and leadership. Young shepherds require clear boundaries and expectations if they are going to become stable adults. Bacchus will benefit greatly from training. Training will not only help him bond to his forever family, but it will also help Bacchus develop into a good canine citizen. If this attractive guy sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet him today.

Recognizing that Theo's condition would require surgical intervention, the shelter staff worked with local groups to get Theo the help he needed. In order to help Theo survive, a portion of his tail was amputated. With his medical needs addressed, Theo is ready to move forward and begin his journey with a new family. Theo is a big, ball-driven boy. He is good with other dogs but prefers proper introductions.Theo will meet with success in a household where he has structure and leadership.

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Shari and her three babies - Jingle, Winkey, and Duran - were picked up as strays in a busy city. This lovely little family was taken to a shelter for safety. However, recognizing that a shelter is no place for a mom and her pups, shelter staff began reaching out for rescue help. When we heard their plea, MAGSR stepped in to help this sweet little family move forward in safety. 

Shari is an absolute love. Everyone that has met this girl has fallen for her lovely personality. Friendly and interactive, Shari was clearly well socialized at one point in her life. Although living on the streets was not easy, Shari did a wonderful job making sure that she and her pups survived. Now that Shari is safe and is getting all of the care, food, and attention she needs, she is ready to move forward. Shari is looking for a loving forever family that will provide her with the structure, routine, and leadership that all GSDs crave. Training will go a long way with Shari. Not only will help her develop into a good canine citizen, but it will also help her bond with her forever family. 

Unfortunately, we did find out that sweet Shari is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if her family had provided her with monthly prevention. Fortunately, we have already begun Shari's treatment. The cost of her entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Although heartworm treatment is expensive, lovely Shari is beyond worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Shari's treatment. Your generosity will help us save her and other dogs with medical needs. Although Shari will need to take it slow over the next few months while she undergoes treatment, this will give her time to adjust to her new environment and meet with success in her forever home. Shari is looking for a forever family that will commit to her for a lifetime, could this be with you?

DESCRIPTION:

Monica, her mom, and her six siblings - Amy, Joe, Mikey, Jill, Phoebe, and Rachael - were dumped on a country road in the south. Covered in ringworm, emaciated, and clearly not well cared for, this little family needed help and quickly. Fortunately, a good samaritan found this family and got them to the safety of a shelter. Although shelter staff did a wonderful job getting this family the help they needed, they knew that moms and puppies do not belong in a shelter environment. As a result, a rescue plea went out. When we heard that this little family needed help, MAGSR immediately stepped forward. 

Monica's friendly, affectionate, and playful. She is everything that a puppy should be. Although this little girl is a joy, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy energy and antics. They get into things, whine, and will chew on inappropriate items. With time, patience, and training, Monica will develop into the good canine citizen we know she is destined to become. Monica is looking for a loving forever household that will commit to her for a lifetime. If your family is looking for puppy kisses, antics, and wiggles, please ask to meet Monica today. 

Updates:

What can I say about my beautiful foster Monica. She is crate trained and 99% house trained. She is a super sweet cuddleable dog that just wants everybody's attention all the time. She loves to sleep with us and she is definitely my foot warmer. If it's a cold winter night who doesn't want some Monica loving she's like your own personal heating blanket. She is 100% a puppy and has lots of energy. She walks great on a leash and will heel next to you. I also love that she's very active so long walks or even runs if you're into that would be a big benefit for her. She lives with four other dogs and a cat and does well with all of them. She loves when we work on training and she's very focused oriented so using little training treats, she will do whatever you ask of her.  If Monica sounds like a good fit for your family, ask to meet her today?

When asked to join in this effort, MAGSR was happy to be a part of this process. 

Zieke has had the great fortune of living in a foster home for the past two months. This has given him the opportunity to learn about the joys of living in the safety and comfort of a home. During this time, Zieke has shown that he is an intelligent guy who picks up new learning quickly. Zieke has done well with crate training and housebreaking. Living in a household with dogs of various sizes, Zieke has shown that he is open to furry friends of all sizes. Zieke has also met older children and has done very well. As Zieke is still a very young dog, he will benefit greatly for continued socialization and training. These essential pieces will help Zieke develop into a stable and confident canine citizen. If Zieke sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet this sweet guy today.

Blake

ADOPTED 02/13/2022!

Blake

Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 4 years 4 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 74lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 85lbs
Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: Working on it
Altered: Yes

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

Handsome Blake was picked up as a stray and brought to a shelter. Emaciated and in need of medical attention shelter staff did everything they could to help Blake move forward. Unfortunately, with very limited resources available and significant medical concerns present, staff members worried that Blake would not make it out alive as the shelter was quickly reaching capacity. Fortunately, several groups started reaching out to help Blake move into the safety of a rescue. MAGSR was able to pull Blake to safety just in time. 

Blake is a handsome and intelligent guy. It is apparent that he lived with a family as he knows several commands. He also seems to understand how to walk on a leash. Although it seems that someone worked with Blake at some point along his journey, we do not yet know if he is housetrained or crate trained. However, we have discovered that this guy takes direction well and seems to be a confident and stable guy. As Blake moves forward, he will meet with greatest success in a household that will provide the structure, routine, and consistency that all young GSDs crave. Blake will also benefit greatly from continued training as this will help him develop a healthy bond with his forever family. 

Blake should be a good sized guy. Unfortunately, he is still so emaciated that it is hard to see his true size at this time. In addition to his skeletal frame, Blake arrived with an untreated skin condition that has caused sores and significant hair loss all along his back-end and tail. Although this is likely very uncomfortable, Blake has remained stable and friendly with our handlers. Fortunately, our amazing vetting team is already at work determining next steps for Blake. A skin scrape has been performed and bloodwork is forthcoming. Until a diagnosis is reached, Blake has been given steroids and is being monitored very closely. Blake's condition did not occur overnight. It will take time to address his medical needs in order to help Blake move forward. Please consider donating to Blake's care. Your donation will not only help us further support Blake, but it will also help us care for other dogs with medical needs. Blake is looking for an active and loving forever family that will commit to him forever. Could that be with you?

Good With Kids: Unknown

DESCRIPTION:

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

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

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

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Shortcake was picked up as a stray and brought to a shelter. Unsure about the loud environment, Shortcake was shy with the shelter staff. However, they could tell that this little girl was a sweetheart that deserved a safe and loving forever family. Recognizing that Shortcake would not likely meet with success at the shelter, staff members began reaching out for help. MAGSR learned about Shortcake's need, and immediately welcomed her to the family.

Shortcake is an absolute doll. Although she needs a little time to warm up to new people and new situations, once comfortable, Shortcake vacillates between cuddle bug and playful pup. She is an excellent balance of young dog energy. A big fan of high-value treats, Shortcake quickly makes friends when something tasty is involved. Shortcake's treat motivation will not only provide an excellent motivator for socialization with new people, but it will also help her in training. Training will go a long way with Shortcake. It will help her bond to her forever family as well as provide the foundation needed to develop into a stable and confident adult. Shortcake is looking for a loving family that will provide her with the routine and structure that all GSDs crave.

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Opie and his brother were living in a home when they underwent a significant change in the family's structure a couple years ago. When this happened, both dogs were placed outside where they resided with little care for the next year and a half. Suddenly, another change in the family structure occurred and both dogs were taken to a shelter. Although Opie's brother was transferred to a rescue, he was left behind. Shelter staff loved Opie, but they recognized that this sweet guy was slowly sliding into depression while waiting alone for someone to claim him. When we learned about Opie's need for placement, our team immediately put a plan together to help this sweet gentleman move into the MAGSR family. 

Opie is just starting the next phase in his life. He's learning about the joy of having a warm, soft, and comfortable bed in a safe and loving home. Having gone through so many changes in a short time, Opie is getting some much needed decompression. He is getting all the love and attention he needs from his foster family. As Opie moves forward, he will benefit from a household that will provide him with structure, routine, and patience. This will help him adjust to  his forever family.

DESCRIPTION:

Keagan and his buddy, Bridget, were surrendered to a shelter. The family did not provide the shelter with a reason for the surrender. However, once in their care, it became clear to shelter staff that these two dogs had not always been treated kindly. Timid and unsure, both dogs can be fearful with new people and situations. However, given time and support, both Bridget and Keagan have shown that they are sweet dogs. Although shelter staff enjoyed both dogs, they recognized that Bridget and Keagan would have their best chance at finding their forever families if they were placed in a breed specific rescue. We were more than happy to welcome both dogs into the MAGSR family. 

Keagan is one handsome guy. Although a little more outgoing than his sister, Keagan is still shy when it comes to new people and in new situations. His forever family will need to keep a close eye on Keagan as he adjusts to his new life and household. Having likely been mistreated in her previous home, Keagan can be a little unsure when approached quickly. However, when given a chance to adjust, Keagan does enjoy attention from his people. A stable environment with clear routines and structure will go a long way with this guy. He will thrive with structure, leadership, and love. As is true of all dogs, it is critical that Keagan participate in training early on with his new family. Training will not only help Keagan develop the confidence he needs to become a stable adult, but it will also help him create a strong and healthy bond with his forever family. Keagan is looking for a patient family that will commit to him for a lifetime, could that be with you?

Jesamine and her four sisters -  Jesalyn, Jesenya, Jesibel, and Jesirae - were found by a good samaritan on the side of the road. Thinking these babies were likely dumped, this kind person collected them all and brought them to an animal clinic to make sure they were safe and healthy. Once medically cleared the pups were taken to a shelter to wait out their stray hold. Although these girls are playful and interactive, the shelter is no place for babies. When asked if we could help these little ladies move forward, we immediately made arrangements to welcome them into the MAGSR family.

Jesamine is playful, energetic and cute as a button. Within the safety of the MAGSR family, this little girl is just starting to learn about the joys of good food, a soft bed, and a loving household. Jesamine is ready to move forward with a forever family that will provide her with the love, care, and attention that this little pup so clearly deserves. Although Jesamine is an absolute doll, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy energy which results in endless puppy antics. They will get into things, whine, and will chew on inappropriate items. With time, training, patience, and socialization, Jesamine will develop into the good canine citizen we know she is destined to become. Jesamine is looking for a forever home that will commit to her for a lifetime. Could that be with you?

Updates:

Jesibel may be the smallest of her sisters but she is also the bravest and smartest! Only two days in and she is learning to ask to go outside to potty. We positively reinforce proper bathroom habits and she is very food motivated--she's even tried to "fake pee" for her treat! A champ for nail trimmings and baths, she is an easy house guest, especially for a 9 week old puppy! She enjoys play wrestling with our resident cat and will run to Jesamine's aid if she thinks the cat has gained the upper hand. She is also a grade A snuggle bug who loves to be as close to you as possible. Sometimes the noises she makes convince me she is more Gremlin than German Shepherd, but it really just increases her cute factor. She is going to be such a cool dog as she grows into her personality and discovers the world around her!

DESCRIPTION:

Arrow's family had him since he was a puppy. He grew up with regular socialization with people and children. Although his family loved him greatly, they recognized that they could no longer provide him with the time, care, and exercise that he deserved. As a result, they made the difficult decision to surrender him to MAGSR. We promised Arrow's family that we would find him a safe and loving forever home.

Arrow is a big, beautiful boy. At close to 100lbs, Arrow is a large guy with a good amount of energy. Born into a litter where several of his siblings moved into working positions, Arrow is driven and intelligent. A typical ball dog, Arrow is more than happy to make sure that your throwing arm is in good shape. It is essential that his forever family make sure that they exercise Arrow's body and mind daily. This routine will help him effectively burn his energy. Although Arrow already knows several commands, training will be essential with his forever family. Not only will training help Arrow bond to his new family, but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen.

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

Jodie is a sweet little lady but she is timid. Somewhat hand-shy, Jodie does well with a patient handler who will give her time to trust. Once comfortable, she warms up for love and attention. A big fan of kisses, Jodie is affectionate and cuddly with her people. Due to the condition in which she arrived, Jodie has needed a little extra TLC. She arrived sick with an URI and dirty from lack of care. Fortunately, our amazing vetting partners were able to help Jodie get the relief she needed. With time, patience, and a little support, Jodie is making steady progress. Jodie will thrive in a household that will provide structure, routine, and patience. Unfortunately, we have discovered that Jodie is heartworm positive. This condition could have been avoided had she been provided monthly heartworm preventatives. We have already begun Jodie's treatment. The cost of her entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but this lovely girl is beyond worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Jodie's treatment. Your generosity will help us save her and other dogs with medical needs. Although Jodie will need to take it slow over the next few months while she undergoes treatment, this will give her time to adjust to her new environment and meet with success in her forever home.

DESCRIPTION:

Ralph is a big, handsome, social guy. He likes dogs of varied sizes and has clearly been well socialized. As Ralph is still very young, it is critical that his forever family continue to socialize him appropriately. This will help him develop into a stable dog. As a playful guy, Ralph is looking for an active household that will exercise both his mind and his body on a daily basis. As we do not know anything about Ralph's past, in many ways he is a clean slate. He will benefit from structure, routine, and leadership.

If Ralph sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet this boy today. 

Updates:

Ralph has been in foster for 2 weeks and has changed so much in a short amount of time.  When Ralph arrived, he seemed to be nervous, unhappy, and a bit fearful.  He quickly attached himself  to his foster mom, but he was standoffish toward the two males in the home.  After one session with a trainer, we learned some techniques to get him to warm up to the males.  After a couple of days, he was a completely different dog!  He is now Mr. Happy Go Lucky and friendly to everyone, including multiple strangers (male and female) who have come to the foster's home in the last week.

 

Ralph loves other dogs.  He loves his foster brother Vader, and they would play together well if we could let him (we can’t yet because he is heartworm positive).  He sleeps in the crate at night.  He goes in easily (with a treat!),  Ralph is housebroken (as long as you are paying attention to his clue). Ralph is learning to walk on a leash, and is nonreactive when he sees other dogs on our walks.  Ralph has started to learn his commands, such as sit.  He is a smart, fast learner.  He does not chew things he shouldn’t, and occasionally plays with a bone.  Overall, Ralph is a happy, loving dog who would do well with any family.  He craves affection.  His favorite thing is bellyrubs – when we approach him, he often drops to his back to give us the sign!

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Luca was seen being dumped out of a car a few weeks ago. The good Samaritan that witnessed this act had to make a quick decision - follow the person that dumped Luca or get Luca to safety. Fortunately, Luca's safety was top priority. He was quickly picked-up and brought into the comfort of the good Samaritan's home until animal services could get involved. Once animal services took over, Luca was able to get the care he needed while waiting for a decision about his next placement. Although Luca did well while waiting for his stray hold to end, animal services knew that this big guy would be best placed in a rescue where a GSD savvy home could be found. When asked to welcome Luca into the MAGSR family, we immediately stepped forward. 

Luca means bringer of light. This name is quite fitting for this guy as this big, silly, playful guy keeps you smiling with his antics. Luca is a very large boy with a very large personality. He is looking for an experienced household as he portrays some strong GSD traits. As is true of all young shepherds, Luca will benefit from a household that will provide him with the structure, routine, and leadership that shepherds crave. Food and ball motivated, Luca is more than happy to work for treats and attention. In fact, this boy has already begun to learn a few basic commands. Luca knows sit, paw, and down. He also knows to out the ball when asked. Training is essential as Luca needs to learn to trust that this forever family will commit to him for a lifetime. In addition, training will help Luca develop into a stable and confident good canine citizen. If Luca sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet him today.

Jesenya is adorable, energetic and intelligent. Within the safety of the MAGSR family, this little girl is just starting to learn about the joys of good food, a soft bed, and a loving household. Jesenya is ready to move forward with a forever family that will provide her with the love, care, and attention that this little pup so clearly deserves. Although Jesenya is an absolute cutie, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy energy which results in endless puppy antics. They will get into things, whine, and will chew on inappropriate items. With time, training, patience, and socialization, Jesenya will develop into the good canine citizen we know she is destined to become. Jesenya is looking for a forever home that will commit to her for a lifetime. Could that be with you?

Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 5 years 8 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 60 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No

Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: Unknown

DESCRIPTION:

Mazie and Sadie were well-loved members of their family. Unfortunately, due to circumstances outside of their control, the girls' family needed to find them a new home. MAGSR was honored to step-up and provide Mazie and Sadie with a safe haven while we looked for the perfect forever for these girls. 

Mazie is a special girl. Her family welcomed her home after a breeder considered putting her down after being born with a congenital defect. Although Mazie required a little extra time and support, she was welcomed home to a family that taught her how to walk, play, and interact just like any other dog. Mazie is a little confused by all of the changes in her life. As a result, she needs a little extra time to warm up to new people. However, when provided with leadership and guidance, Mazie warms up to new people and leans in for affection. 

If Mazie sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet her today. 

Updates:

Mazie is doing incredibly well in her foster home and has made a lot of progress.  In that time we have found she does great with bath, blow dry and nail trim.  Mazie is not food aggressive, nor is she food motivated but will be enticed with a high value treat such as chicken nugget. She is on a routine and happy to go outside to potty every 4 hours and does well in her crate.  

She is on medication to help her with her bladder which she will have an occasional over excited dribble. When at home she likes to play with stuffed toys, balls, and chew on bully stick.  The recent snow accumulations have shown her love of snow and frolicking in it. Exuberantly wants to play with other dogs, teaching/training to play easy, calm and when needed leave it.  She will happily go for a car ride with you and give kisses.  Mazie will howl when she hears firetrucks or sirens.  She is working on sit, stay, off and with me and continued training will allow her to thrive.  Ask to meet Mazie today!

Mazie is currently in board and training for 2 weeks and working on her reaction to some dogs and as well as obedience.  She does well with small dogs but sometimes does not realize her size. She walks well on the leash and loves to be with her person.  She enjoys going for car rides, giving kisses and playing with stuffed toys but should be durable as she will rip them apart.  She does well with kids and adults. She is mostly housebroken with limited accidents due to her medical condition. She will sit pretty for a peanut butter treat.  If you're looking for an all weather type of girl she will gladly walk/run through rain, snow, sleet and does not mind thunderstorms. Luckily she also is very good with getting baths,grooming and being wiped down, for those extra muddy sessions : ).Does Mazie sound like the dog for you?!

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Katie Ann was picked up as a stray and sheltered by another rescue while they waited for her stray hold. Unfortunately, no one came forward to claim this lovely girl. Although they enjoyed their time with Katie Ann, the rescue caring for her felt that she would be most likely to find her forever family if she moved into a breed specific rescue. When asked if we could help Katie Ann take the next step toward her forever home, MAGSR immediately stepped forward.

Katie Ann is an affectionate and friendly girl especially with her people. She greatly enjoys the company of the people within her sphere and seems to understand the ins and outs of living with a family. However, as is true with most shepherds, Katie Ann will overbond if given the opportunity. This can cause her to become overprotective of her people, her property, and her home. In order to meet with success, Katie Ann is looking for an experienced household that will work with her to develop a healthy relationship. Boundaries and clear expectations are very helpful to her success. Katie Ann will thrive with routine, leadership, and structure. Training will also go a long way with this lovely girl. Not only will training help Katie Ann bond to her forever family, but it will also help her develop into a good and stable canine citizen. Katie Ann has already begun to learn some basics with our volunteers, but she will flourish with continued training. Although Katie Ann can be walked calmly in areas with other dogs, she is looking for a home where she is the only dog. Best placed with a confident handler, Katie Ann is looking for an active family that will commit to her for a lifetime. If this lovely lady sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today.

Koda

Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 10 years 7 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 56 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 60 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Partially
Altered: Yes

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

Lovely Koda was adopted out as a young adult. She lived in a household with young children and a cat. Although she did well with everyone in the household, Koda's family could no longer care for her. As a result, they surrendered her to a shelter. Knowing Koda was a MAGSR dog, the shelter called us to let us know that they had Koda in their care. We immediately asked to bring Koda back into the MAGSR family. 

Koda is a lovely lady. She is sweet and affectionate. Having lived in a household prior to her return, Koda understands many of the ins and outs of living in a home; however, she will need a little time to adjust to the expectations in her forever family's home. Koda has lived with a cat but has been known to do a little chasing from time to time. In her foster home, Koda lives with other dogs and has done very well. She seems to enjoy pack life and does well in a stable pack. A big fan of fetch, Koda loves to get her daily exercise in while running around after a ball. She is also a big fan of her daily walks.

As happens as we get older, Koda has developed a few age related medical conditions. She does have pannus and will require daily eye medication in order to keep her comfortable. Fortunately, her medication is easy to find Koda is good about having it applied. In addition, Koda has developed some arthritis. As a result, it is unlikely that she will not be running marathons in her forever home. Although Koda has a few additional medical needs, she is a fantastic companion who enjoys spending time with her people. If your family is looking for a mature lady with a love for snuggles, please consider adding Koda to your family.

DESCRIPTION:

Lokki and his sister, Meka, were confiscated with a large number of dogs. Due to the nature of their seizure, both pups remained with animal control for a few months until they could be released. Although shelter staff worked hard to make sure both dogs had what they needed, they knew that placement through a rescue would be best. When asked if we could bring these two babies into the MAGSR family, we immediately stepped forward. 

Lokki is a curious and intelligent guy. Although he is a survivor, he maintains a friendly personality. With all that Lokki has endured, he has not had the opportunity to work through many of his puppy antics. As a result, this handsome guy is still learning the dos and don'ts of puppyhood. However, with patience and consistency, he is making great strides. As a young pup, Lokki has a lot of energy. He is looking for a family that can exercise both his body and his mind on a daily basis. As Lokki and Meka lacked the opportunity to explore the world as young pups, they both have many puppy-like traits at this time. Both will thrive in households where structure, guidance, and leadership are provided consistently. Training will go a long way with Lokki. Not only will this help her bond to his new family, but it will also help him develop into a stable and confident canine citizen. If this handsome and interactive guy sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet him today!
