ADOPTED 05/21/2021!

Honey
HoneyHoneyHoney
Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 1 year 4 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 82 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 85 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Partially
Altered: Yes

Good With Kids: Older kids, over 10
Good With Cats: Yes
Other Dogs OK: Yes
DESCRIPTION:

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

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

Updates:

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

Current Size: 20 lbs
Housebroken: No, I'm a puppy!

DESCRIPTION:

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

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

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

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

Current Size: 60 lbs
Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No

Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: Yes

DESCRIPTION:

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

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

When asked to welcome this family into the MAGSR family, we immediately said yes. 

Lizzie is a bundle of energy and joy. She is cute as a button and brings happiness to everyone around her. Well socialized in her foster home, Lizzie is a match for a household with kids, cats, or other dogs. Although Lizzie's foster family has given her an excellent start, it is imperative that they continue to keep Lizzie well socialized. This will help her develop into a stable adult.

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

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

DESCRIPTION:

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

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

Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No

Other Dogs OK: Yes
DESCRIPTION:

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

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

Updates:

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

,

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

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

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

DESCRIPTION:

Zoose was surrendered to a shelter when his owner could no longer care for him. As is true of many shepherds in shelters, Zoose was unsure about all of the changes in his life. Recognizing that Zoose would have his best chance at finding a forever home in a rescue, he was transferred to MAGSR. 

In a lot of ways Zoose is a big, goofy guy. He is interactive and playful once comfortable with his people. It is clear that his previous owner took some time to teach him a few basic commands such as sit, down and shake. As a big boy who seeks leadership, Zoose is a good match for an experienced handler who understands the breed. As he moves forward, Zoose will benefit greatly from training. This will not only help Zoose become a good canine citizen, but it will also help him bond more effectively with his new family.

Sweet Andy was picked up as a stray and brought to the shelter in the South where he waited patiently for someone to come for him and sadly no one did. Unfortunately, he was continuously passed by and with time running short, he needed a rescue to step in.  We were pleased to be that rescue and welcomed him into the MAGSR family with the promise that we would find him a loving forever home.

Andy is as sweet as they come and wows everyone with his gentle and easy-going personality. He is friendly with both people and dogs. In many ways Andy is a blank slate who is ready to move forward with his new family.   Like all dogs, Andy will benefit from training as it will not only help him integrate into his new family, but it will also help him become a good canine citizen

Unfortunately, Andy is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if he had been provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. Andy has already begun his heartworm treatment and is doing well. The cost of Andy's entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Andy is more than worth the cost.

Good With Kids: Older kids, over 12

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Odin was absolutely cherished by his family. However, due to circumstances beyond his control, they needed to rehome him. It is highly apparent that he has been well loved and cared for and just needs the right household to live out his golden years. 

Odin is friendly, affectionate, and playful. Having lived in a household, Odin is housebroken and crate trained. Odin also has some basic commands already in place. He knows sit, stay, come, down, paw, nose, and ok. Although Odin has some obedience training, he will need to attend training as this will help him bond with his new family. Odin enjoys the company of other dogs and has lived with a cat. Although he can handle older children, he is uncomfortable around younger children and will be most successful in a household without them. Odin is looking for a forever family that will keep his mind and body well exercised while also making sure he gets plenty of belly rubs. If Odin sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet him today!

Updates:

Odin is very sweet and loves to play ball.   He sits nicely for his food, waits until he is released to go outside and walks nicely on a leash.  If you are looking for a well behaved older dog that still has a lot of spunk then this guy is the one.

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

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

Bailey is a sweetheart. She was well socialized in her home with kids and other dogs. However, her family struggled to find time to socialize her in the community. As a result, Bailey can be a little timid with new people and in new places. Given time, patience, and guidance, Bailey will develop the confidence she needs outside of the household. Just like any young dog, Bailey will thrive with structure, routine and training. Training will help her to not only bond with her new family but also develop into the stable adult we know she is destined to be. If Bailey sounds like the right match for your household, please ask to meet her today.

Updates:

Bailey is doing good in her foster home.  She is very affectionate, housebroken and crate trained.  Bailey gets along great with the other dogs in the home and has made herself quite comfortable hanging out with them, playing with toys and chewing on bones.  Her foster family will continue to work with her on socialization and walking on a leash while she waits for her furever home.  If you are looking for a sweetheart that loves attention and is a bundle of fun this is your little girl.

Current Size: 50 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Working on it
Altered: No

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

Midnight's owner loved him dearly. When circumstances beyond his control interfered with this ability to care for Midnight, he was surrendered to a shelter. Midnight immediately won over the shelter staff with his easy-going personality. Unphased by much of what was happening around him, Midnight's stable personality with people and dogs quickly made him a favorite. Although Midnight was available for adoption through the shelter, it was felt that he would have his best chance of finding the right fit through a rescue. At this time we are still getting to know Midnight. As we get to know him better, we will post updates here. If Midnight sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet him today. 

Updates:

Midnight’s foster family has reported that he is very friendly, easygoing, and shows no aggression.  He shows interest in other dogs, but he is currently separated from the dogs in the home because he is recovering from kennel cough).  When he sees other dogs on his walk, he is curious but does not bark or growl.  Midnight loves people.  He LOVES snuggling and giving kisses.  Midnight particularly enjoys going on walks and does well on a leash.  He also likes to look out the window, chew on bones, and play with tug toys.  He eats well and loves treats.  He is housebroken (and has had no accidents), stays in the mudroom at night (and has not cried or barked even once!), and knows basic commands but does not always listen (especially if he is excited to go out for a walk!).  Like most dogs, he could benefit from some obedience training! 

If Midnight sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet him today. 

,

Midnight has fully recovered from kennel cough, and he has settled in nicely with the foster family’s two German Shepherds.  They have become a pack of three who go on walks together, play in the yard, and share toys.  Midnight's favorite toys are bones (any and every kind!) and tug toys, but he shares nicely with the other dogs.  He and our German Shepherd Vader are in constant competition for the toys, one takes the toys when the other is not looking!  But no fighting or aggression at all.  Midnight definitely looks up to Vader and wants to be just like him!  Midnight is housebroken and sleeps in our mudroom at night without any complaining.  He knows when it is bedtime and will go into the mudroom without being asked and waiting for the gate to be put up!  Midnight has easily learned basic commands, such as sit.  When dinner is being prepared, he waits next to his bowl without being told to do so.  Midnight loves to snuggle and makes sure you know when he wants some love (he pushes his head gently into your chest and waits for hugs!).  He is a very easy going dog and would fit in well with any family with little adjustment time.

Fortunately, their owner was willing to work with a good samaritan to bring them into the safety of the rescue. All four puppies are looking for safe and loving forever homes.

Dodger is an absolute joy. He brings immediate smiles to the faces of everyone he meets. Full of puppy wiggles and antics, Dodger has all the fabulous qualities of your typical GSD puppy. Although Dodger is a sweetheart, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics, they get into things, and they will chew on inappropriate items. With time, patience, guidance and training, Dodger will develop into the good canine citizen that we know he is destined to become. If this handsome guy sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet him today.

DESCRIPTION:

Metro was confiscated from his owner over a year ago. However, due to legal proceedings, he was unable to move forward until his court case ended. Although safe at the shelter while the case proceeded, once the case ended, Metro needed out and fast as his time was up. Recognizing that Metro is an amazing dog, shelter staff began networking him in an attempt to find a rescue that could help him before it was too late. When we received Metro's plea, we immediately welcomed him into the MAGSR family. 

Metro is a big, beautiful guy. Having previously lived in a household, he does understand many of the household rules. However, just like any new dog he will benefit from a refresher. As is true of any GSD, Metro will thrive in an environment with structure, routine, and leadership. It is highly evident that Metro's previous owner took a lot of time to train him. Metro knows commands in both English and German and does well with a handler that is clear about expectations. While living at the shelter, staff found Metro's stable personality to be an asset. He quickly became the dog tester for the shelter. Good with dogs of all sizes, Metro has the benefit of age, maturity, and confidence. Metro is looking for a forever family that will provide him with a safe and loving forever home, could that be with you?

As is true of all puppies, Josh is a combination of cuddles, kisses, cuteness, and energy.  Josh is a happy boy who brings joy to everyone around him. Socialized with dogs, kids, cats, and people, Josh is happy to say hi to everyone. As socialization is critical for puppies, Josh's forever family will need to continue this practice as it will help him develop into a stable adult dog.

DESCRIPTION:

Milton and his brother, Teddy, are siblings from different litters. They were living with their parents and a few other dogs on a breeder's property. When the owner could no longer keep the dogs safe, they were surrendered to another rescue. Recognizing that both boys would likely have their best shot at finding their forever home in another region, Milton and Teddy were transferred to MAGSR. 

Milton is a friendly guy. Having grown up with dogs of a variety of ages, he enjoys the company of other dogs. However, he is less comfortable around alpha males. According to his owner, Milton has grown up with children and did well with them. Although we know that Milton had an owner, we are not sure if he was kept as an inside dog or an outside dog. We do know that he did not have any vetting prior to his arrival at MAGSR. Unfortunately, Milton is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if he had been provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. Milton has already begun his heartworm treatment and is doing well. The cost of Milton's entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Milton is more than worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Milton's treatment. Your generosity will help us save him and other dogs with medical needs. Although Milton will need to take it slow over the next few months, he will be back to full strength once his treatment is finished. If your household is looking for a big, beautiful guy, please ask to meet him today.

Bentley is a big, energetic guy. He enjoys the calm and consistency of an experienced handler. Benefiting from both mental and physical exercise, this Bentley will need an active household.

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Finnegan was picked up as a stray in June of 2020 and brought to a rural shelter. Staff members quickly fell in love with this big, goofy guy and did what they could to help him find his forever home. Although the shelter was able to handle most of Finnegan's vetting needs, they did not have the funds to address his heartworm status. Unfortunately, Finnegan was passed over for adoption for months. Due to overcrowding over the winter, Finnegan's time was running out. When asked to help Finnegan find his forever family, MAGSR immediately stepped in to help this boy move forward. 

Finnegan is a playful and silly guy. He enjoys the company of his people and has no problem getting everyone around him to giggle with his antics. Finnegan is now receiving the vetting care he has needed. MAGSR has begun his heartworm treatment and Finnegan is doing well. The cost of his entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Finnegan is more than worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Finnegan's treatment. Your generosity will help us save him and other dogs with medical needs.

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet little Boscoe was dropped off in a rural shelter. With limited options available for this little sweetheart, the shelter immediately began pleading for help. As shelters are not often safe for puppies especially, if they have not completed their puppy shots, Boscoe needed out immediately. When asked if we could help out, MAGSR was happy to step up. 

Boscoe is the perfect combination of cuddles, tail wags, and unending joy. He has been living with a foster family for the last few weeks which has given him the opportunity to begin learning the ins and outs of living in a home. Living with kids and a variety of different dogs, Boscoe is benefitting greatly from regular socialization. This socialization is critical for puppies as it helps them develop into stable adult dogs. Everyone that meets this big boy is easily won over by his joyful and easy-going personality. Although Boscoe is full of wiggles and fun, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics, they get into things, and they will chew on inappropriate things. With time, patience, guidance, and training, Boscoe will develop into the good canine citizen we know he is destined to become.

Current Size: 65 lbs

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

Lovely Izzy was picked up as a stray and brought to a shelter in the south. Unfortunately, the shelter that she arrived at lacks the resources to meet the needs of many of the animals in their care. As a result, dogs with medical needs often do not receive the care and attention they need in order to move forward. When another rescue heard about Izzy's situation, they began networking her with the hope of helping this sweet senior lady find a loving forever home. Recognizing that Izzy was out of options but deserved the dignity of living out her golden years in comfort and safety, we stepped up and welcomed Izzy into the MAGSR family. 

Izzy's eyes tell a story of their own. They tell the story of pain and neglect while also crying out for comfort and love. Izzy is learning to trust her people; it is evident that kind hands have not always been used with her. With patience and gentleness, Izzy slowly warms up and will ask for love and attention. She loves to slowly slink over to your lap for head scratches and love. As Izzy did not receive the medical attention she needed prior to her arrival at MAGSR, she will require additional support in order to move forward. Izzy will do best in a calm and stable household where she can remain on the first floor as Izzy's body is simply not as strong as her mind at this time. Diagnosed as heartworm positive, Izzy will need to keep her activity limited over the next few months as her body heals. Although Izzy has clearly not always experienced kindness, she remains a gentle and affectionate dog. If Izzy sounds like the right match for your household, please inquire about her today. 

Updates:

Lovely Izzy has been spending the last month enjoying the comforts of soft beds, blankets, and snuggles. She quickly warmed up to her foster family, particularly, the littles in the household. Her sweet and gentle nature rose to the surface as soon as she realized she was safe. Easily recognizing the most comfortable places to rest in the house, Izzy is often found on a snuggly blanket or spread out on the couch. However, true to shepherd nature, when Izzy's foster family is moving about she likes to be right where they are keeping tabs on everyone. She truly is the sweetest shadow. Although Izzy has had a few vet visits over the last month to ensure that her needs are fully met, she has been patient and gentle with everyone she has encountered. With everything she has endured, Izzy's body will never be as strong as it once was. She will always be wobbly and will need some additional support when moving about. However, this enchanting lady would love a forever family that will provide her with the comfort and dignity all seniors deserve. If you are looking for a senior pup, who is a big fan of head rubs and squeaky toys, Izzy is your girl. Please consider providing her with the loving forever family that all pups deserve.

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

Having survived parvo, Zenobia is a super puppy. She cannot ever contract this horrible disease again. Ready to move onto a life of love, cuddles, and safety, Zenobia cannot wait to meet her forever family. Although Zenobia is beyond sweet, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require an endless amount of attention from their family.

When asked to welcome Stewie into the MAGSR family, we immediately started putting plans into place to help Stewie move forward. 

Stewie is a social guy. He enjoys the company of people and other dogs. As a playful guy, Stewie loves to play with toys of all varieties. He is good about sharing his toys and treats with others. At the shelter he even made sure to try to share his food with a visiting pot bellied pig! Stewie has been diagnosed as heartworm positive. His entire treatment will be handled by MAGSR. Although this will mean that Stewie will need to take it slow for a little while, once his treatment is completed he will be back to full strength. Stewie is looking for a forever family that has plenty of toys and will commit to him for a lifetime. If Stewie sounds like the right match for your household, please ask to meet him today.

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Andy was picked up as a stray and brought to the shelter in the South where he waited patiently for someone to come for him and sadly no one did. Unfortunately, he was continuously passed by and with time running short, he needed a rescue to step in.  We were pleased to be that rescue and welcomed him into the MAGSR family with the promise that we would find him a loving forever home.

Andy is as sweet as they come and wows everyone with his gentle and easy-going personality. He is friendly with both people and dogs. In many ways Andy is a blank slate who is ready to move forward with his new family.   Like all dogs, Andy will benefit from training as it will not only help him integrate into his new family, but it will also help him become a good canine citizen

Unfortunately, Andy is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if he had been provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. Andy has already begun his heartworm treatment and is doing well. The cost of Andy's entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Andy is more than worth the cost.

DESCRIPTION:

Sirius and another male were picked up by animal control when they were found showing too much interest in a female dog in heat running loose. Although Sirius waited for his family to reclaim him, no one came to bring him home. Sirius quickly became a shelter staff favorite. Recognizing that Sirius would have his best chance at finding a forever home outside of the shelter, he was transferred to MAGSR. 

Sirius is a sweet dog who can be a little timid with new people. When given the opportunity to warm up Sirius enjoys the company of his people. Clearly having been on leash before, Sirius seems to understand some leash manners already. When introduced to dogs at the shelter, Sirius did well particularly, with the females. He even kept his cool when one of them was having a rough day. As a young dog, Sirius will thrive in a home that provides him with structure and routine. Training will go a long way with this boy as it will not only help him bond with his new family, but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. Sirius will do well in a more experienced household that can provide him with the leadership that he craves. If Sirius sounds like the right match for your household, please ask him today. 

Updates:

Sirius is a very sweet and loving boy. He enjoys belly rubs and is working on perfecting his "shepherd lean". When I am home, I allow Sirius to free roam the house.  He is always close by, but not right on top of you. He enjoys lounging around the house (probably a good thing as he recovers from heart worms). He does very well on leash, he is housebroken and crate trained. He is very friendly with new people and approaches them without hesitation and a wagging tail. He does not show aggression towards other dogs we pass while walking for potty breaks.

Sirius does get nervous and shows anxiety when left at home alone, his foster is working with him to learn to be confident and comfortable.   If you are looking for a best friend that just wants to be with his humans, please reach out to meet this handsome guy.

Ideal/Potential Size: 80lbs

Good With Kids: Older kids, over 12
Good With Cats: Unlikely
Other Dogs OK: Yes
DESCRIPTION:

Jam's family loved him dearly; however, they found themselves in a situation where Jam needed to be rehomed. Although it was very hard to say goodbye, Jam's family recognized that this was in his best interest. MAGSR promised Jam's family that we would find him a safe and loving forever home.

Jam is a friendly guy. He is a fan of both people and dogs but can get a little overexcited when meeting them and stop to talk a bit. We all love to socialize. A big fan of walks, Jam understands that when the leash comes out it is time to go. Although he knows many commands on leash, refreshers are always a good thing for everyone. As is true of any new dog, Jam will meet with success in a structured environment that will provide him with time and leadership while he adjusts to his new home. As a working line dog, Jam will need both his body and mind exercised on a daily basis. When engaging with Jam, he is most excited by balls, rubber bones, and food based toys. Although he wouldn't mind plush toys either, Jam tends to destroy them. Something a little stronger is safer in Jam's case. If you love to throw the ball, Jam is the dog for you. He loves a nice rotation when chasing the ball. We hear three is the magic number with Jam. Daily exercise will not only help Jam adjust positively to his new environment but it will also help him gain stability as he moves forward. Jam is clearly a special guy who is looking for the perfect forever home. Is that home with you?

Updates:

Jam is living with his foster and they have reported he is a gentle, well behaved dog.  He seems to love people, is somewhat trained and really easy to handle. He is housebroken and crate trained.  If you are looking for an older, gentle dog that is well behaved please ask to meet this handsome boy.

,

Jam may be called a Senior, but don't be fooled this guy is energetic and active.   

Jam is fully housebroken and crate trained.  He doesn’t lay on furniture, does not counter surf, does not beg at the dinner table and is well mannered.  He’s a real gentleman inside the house but he has his way of telling you when he wants to go out or needs more water. This guy will sleep in his crate all through the night without a peep. 

He loves to play tug of war with his Red Bone but when you have had enough, he lays down and chews on it. He’s a big, strong boy who loves to go on walks but is much too busy sniffing around to pull anyone along.  He knows several commands but could use a refresher course or just more practice.  Of course, he’ll do anything for food or a snack.

He has a big bark but we’ve never seen a snarl or growl. He loves meeting new people and gets excited to meet other dogs but settles down after proper introductions.

If you want someone to spend some time with and respond unconditionally, Jam’s the right dog!

DESCRIPTION:

Beautiful Diana and her housemates, Megan and Harry, were confiscated from their owner.  Although all three dogs get along with one another, it appears that Diana is a little more timid than the other two. As this set of dogs have relied on one another for comfort and safety, they clearly enjoy and appreciate the companionship of another dog. When confiscated, it was clear to animal control officers that these three were not well cared for or socialized around other people. As a result, they all require some time to adjust to new people and situations. Diana appears to be the least socialized of the three. She is still learning that people can be kind and caring. Best suited for a quiet household, Diana will need time, patience, and leadership as she moves forward. Training is an essential aspect of recovery particularly with a fearful dog. As a confidence building activity and a socialization opportunity, Diana will gain stability and trust through training. Although her humans have failed her in the past, Diana is ready to move forward. Is your family the right match for her?

Updates:

Megan is housebroken and crate trained.  She lets her fosters know when she needs to go out.  She LOVES TO SNUGGLE, and when she recognizes a treat she will automatically sit for it. She doesn't  like to be alone if there are others in the house-- she will try to be near you.  Megan arrived with an upper respiratory infection so she is annoyed she cannot play with the resident dogs, but hopefully that will change soon as she is on antibiotics and on the mend.  If you are looking for a loyal dog that just wants to be loved and with your human, Megan is the one.

DESCRIPTION:

Sasha's family loved her dearly. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, they could no longer care for her. Although surrendering her was a difficult decision, they knew this would give Sasha her best chance at finding a safe and loving forever home. We promised Sasha's family that we would find her the perfect forever family. Sasha is a lovely girl. She is charming and playful when comfortable with her people. We have been told she is good with children, dogs, and cats. However, like many young dogs, sometimes she gets a little rough with the cats. When corrected by them, she recognizes their boundaries and moves on. 

Although this sweet southern girl is a doll with her family, she will need continued socialization and training. Having had limited experiences within the community, Sasha will need time, patience, and leadership as she learns about the world around her. Sasha will thrive in an environment where structure and routine are infused into daily activities. She will do well with a family that understands and has experience with the breed.

Color: Sable
Current Size: 60 lbs
Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: Yes

DESCRIPTION:

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

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

Dayna

ADOPTED 04/11/2021!

Dayna
Dayna
Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Mix
Approximate Age: 5 years 4 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 45 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

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

Lovely Dayna was trapped on the streets of a busy city along with her little family. When she arrived at the shelter, staff recognized that she was scared and shut down. There was simply so much going on around her and so many new people and sounds. Although timid, Dayna was sweet with staff members. As is often the case with adult dogs, Dayna was looked over as all of her puppies found homes. Recognizing the Dayna deserved a loving home of her own, we welcomed this little lady into the MAGSR family. 

 

Dayna, as is true of many strays, needs time to adjust to new people and situations. She doesn't seem to have had positive responses from humans prior to her arrival at the shelter and is still learning that people can be kind. Dayna will meet with greatest success in a calm environment. She will benefit from patience, structure and routine. Training will go a long way with Dayna as it will help her not only develop into a good canine citizen but it will also help her bond with her forever family. Dayna is heartworm positive. We have already begun her heartworm treatment and Dayna is doing well. MAGSR will cover the entirety of the cost of Dayna's treatment. Although heartworm treatment is very expensive, Dayna is more than worth the cost. Please consider donating to Dayna's heartworm treatment. This will help us not only support Dayna but it will also help us save other dogs with medical needs. If your household can provide Dayna with the peaceful and structured environment she needs to thrive, please ask to meet this lovely girl today.

Bella

ADOPTED 04/10/2021!

Bella

Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 4 years 3 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 55 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 55 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Yes
Altered: Yes

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

Bella first came to MAGSR in July, 2020 as a stray. She was very sweet with MAGSR volunteers and eventually successfully transitioned to a home environment.

Bella is a beautiful and smart girl who loves the company of her primary people. She loves training and has excelled in group as well as individual lessons and is well on her way toward her Canine Good Citizen certification.

She loves car rides and is thrilled to accompany her humans anywhere.

Though she does not want to be left behind, she has handled time alone in the house well as her humans returned to in-person work. She’s an experienced shopper in hardware stores and pet stores and navigates busy boardwalks and streets with no problems, but her favorite time includes running in the backyard, walking on the beach or going on a long hike with her humans.

She has helped foster 8 other GSDs with her humans. She also does well in dog day camp with other dogs.

As a mature dog, she is fully adjusted to living in the house, is calm around adult family members, and has been a calming “co-worker” in Zoom meetings for hours on end. She is a polite eater and does not touch the furniture (unless invited in).

Bella receives A+ for sweet behavior every time she visits the vet or any time she spends the day at a camp with trainers. As is true of many shepherds, Bella tends to be protective of her people, house, and back yard and visitors need to be carefully introduced. There have been limited opportunities to work on this behavior during COVID-19 restrictions and while Bella is an amazing house dog, she demonstrates excess anxiety and barking with visitors to the home.

Her household was recently licensed for foster child care and many new strangers to Bella now come to the home. Out of high caution, Bella is secured in a separate room during child foster visits and the current circumstances are not sustainable for Bella or current and future foster children. Bella has been very much loved by her family.

After consulting several trainers, they made the heartbreaking decision to look for a new home for her, motivated by high investment in her quality of life and positive future without the stress of little children running around. Bella is an amazing girl who will be a loving family member but needs an environment with adults and/or older children.

Roxee

ADOPTED 04/05/2021!

Roxee
RoxeeRoxeeRoxee
Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 4 years 5 months
Color: Black & Red
Current Size: 60 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 65 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: No

Good With Kids: Older kids, over 16
Good With Cats: Yes
Other Dogs OK: Yes
DESCRIPTION:

Roxee was rehomed recently. She was clearly a well-loved member of her family. Unfortunately, due to circumstances outside of their control, Roxee needed to be rehomed once more. When asked to help find the perfect forever home for this stunning girl, MAGSR was honored to step-up and provide Roxee with a safe haven. 

Roxee is a sweet girl who looks for guidance and leadership from those around her. When given calm and consistent leadership, Roxee responds positively. It seems that Roxee was undersocialized for the first few years of her life, which has caused her to need a little more time to warm up to new people. However, once comfortable, Roxee has the "shepherd lean" down pat. A lack of exposure to the everyday activities of the outside world has made her skittish. Roxee will need time, patience, and consistency as she moves forward. Training will be an essential component of Roxee's future. It will not only help her develop the confidence needed to experience the world around her, but it will also help her create a strong, healthy bond with her handler. Although Roxee can be a little unsure about new people, she is fantastic with cats and dogs of all sizes. In her current foster home, the pack quickly welcomed this gentle girl into their household. They must have known she needed a little extra love. Roxee is an adorable girl who is looking for a special family that has the time and patience to help her move forward. Could that be with you?
