Fantastic Hermione (fka Fred) is one of 11 puppies and a mama that were part of a cruelty case within Maryland. Upon arrival, this sweet litter of pups quickly won over all the staff within the shelter; however,  they knew this family needed to move into the safety of a rescue immediately so they could move forward and find loving forever families.  When asked if we could help this litter of 11 babies and mama, team MAGSR stepped up and welcomed the Hogwarts family to the rescue. 

Hermione is a spunky baby who is full of smiles and loves human attention. Belly rubs are a favorite activity of hers and should, in her mind, be provided on a daily basis. Like her brothers and sisters, she is working on socialization and house manners. Fortunately, our Hogwarts puppies have a good start already as they are sweet and friendly pups who happily soak up all of the love and attention they can find. Living with amazing foster families, each of the Hogwarts puppies is starting to learn all of the important things they will need to know in order to develop into stable and confident adult dogs. Although puppies bring endless joy to everyone they encounter, please remember that puppies are a lot of work. Puppies will whine, chew, have accidents and fill your home with endless puppy antics. With time, patience, structure, and routine, they will develop into incredible dogs. If these babies sound like the right match for your household, ask to meet one of them today!

DESCRIPTION:

The Hunger Games puppies - Peeta, Katniss, Thresh, Rue, Gale, and Finnick - were an accidental litter in the south. Although they were well-cared for as babies, as they grew, they became too much for their family. Recognizing that they were unable to provide a large number of babies with what they needed, their family surrendered them to a shelter. Unfortunately, with the overwhelming number of dogs needing placements in shelters right now, owner surrenders are the first dogs to be euthanized. The minute these babies entered the building they were in danger. Trying to do everything they could to keep this group alive, shelter staff began pleading for rescue help. When we heard about their plight, our team knew we needed to welcome the Hunger Games family to MAGSR. 

Rue is a little love bug who quickly wins over the hearts of everyone around her. She is playful, inquisitive, and a good snuggler. As an active young pup, Rue is looking for a family that can give her the time, attention, and training that will help her meet with success. Still a very young dog, it is essential that Rue continue to socialize regularly. This will help her develop a stable and confident personality. Although Rue is an absolute doll, please remember that puppies are a lot of work. They will whine, chew, have accidents, and fill your home with puppy antics. With time, patience, training and socialization, Rue will develop into the good canine citizen that we know she is destined to be.

Luna

ADOPTED 08/15/2022!


LunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLuna
Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 1 year 4 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 60 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 65 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

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

Lovely Luna was picked up as a stray and brought to a local shelter. Although shelter staff hoped that a family would come to claim Luna, no one came for her. Recognizing that a GSD is often most successful if placed through a breed specific rescue, shelter staff worked with MAGSR to help move Luna forward. We are so excited to have welcomed Luna to the MAGSR family.

Luna is a sweet, young, and intelligent GSD. Typical of most GSDs, she can be somewhat aloof at first. However, given a little time and some tasty treats, Luna begins to show her playful side. She is affectionate and interactive once comfortable. Gentle with her play, Luna does seem to understand the concept of toys and is happy to play on her own. Although we do not know anything about her past, we do know that someone worked with Luna. She knows a few commands, such as sit and paw, and will gently take treats from the handler. However, she will need to continue to build leash manners as it appears that she has had limited opportunities on leash. As a young dog, Luna is looking for a household that will provide her with the structure, routine and leadership that will help her meet with success. Training is essential for Luna. Not only will this help her develop a healthy bond with her forever family, but it will also help her build the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. Luna is a sweetheart who is looking for an active and loving forever family. Could that be with you?

 

Updates:

Luna is doing great in her foster home. She crates well and is quiet in the crate. There have been no accidents, so she is housebroken. She did very well on the leash when we went walking. She just needs some consistent walking and she'll be a pro in no time.  She has a lot of energy and is very loving and playful. When my husband came home from work and walked into the back yard, Luna went running to him like she's known him all her life and wanted to get lots of head and belly rubs from him. 

 

,

Luna has recovered nicely from her spay and is now off of restricted activity. She is a bundle of puppy energy and loves to play ball. She has met most of my family as they come over, all adults, and wins over the hearts of everyone she meets. Luna has met her foster brother and sister and is getting along well with them when they play outside. Inside, they like to rough house so their time together is limited. My end tables can only take so much German Shepherd collisions before whatever is on them topples to the floor.     Having a 4yr old, an almost 2yr old and a 10 month old  makes for an active house. Literally put them away for "naps" yesterday so "mommy" could have some alone time in the pool. Anyway, Luna is a complete joy and is super smart, curious and likes to chase rabbits and squirrels. She barks at the vacuum and handled the neighborhood fireworks with ease. Her recall is pretty good. We are still working on leash manners and will spend more time doing it now that she is free from restrictive activity. Luna is going to be a fabulous dog and her future family will be very lucky to have her.

DESCRIPTION:

Marvelous Maverick was surrendered by his family to a shelter in the south. They stated that although they loved Maverick dearly, due to a significant change in circumstances, they could no longer care for him. Shelter staff recognized that Maverick was special right away, his charismatic personality easily won everyone over. However, due to what looked like a gunshot wound to his foot, they felt that Maverick would be most successful if placed with a rescue. When MAGSR learned about Maverick's story, we stepped forward and welcomed him to the family.

Since joining MAGSR, we have addressed Maverick's medical needs. He has made great strides and is now acting and moving the way a GSD should. Maverick is a happy and gregarious guy. His previous family provided him with a solid foundation as he has clearly been well socialized with dogs and people. As a young guy, it is important that Maverick continues to be socialized in appropriate settings so that he maintains his current skills. It is also essential that Maverick exercise both his body and his mind on a daily basis. Training will help with this piece. Not only will training help Maverick move forward and develop a healthy bond with his new family, but it will also help him develop into a stable and confident adult. Maverick is looking for a forever family that will provide him with the structure, leadership, and routine that all GSDs crave. If he sounds like the right pup for your family, please ask to meet Maverick today.

DESCRIPTION:

Little Miss Skeeter was picked up as a stray and brought to a shelter a few months ago. Due to a wound of unknown origin Skeeter was placed in quarantine for a few months at the shelter. Although this can be very difficult for many dogs, Skeeter handled her quarantine very well and remained friendly and interactive. She was a staff favorite. Once released from quarantine, shelter staff decided that Skeeter would be most successful if she was placed with a rescue. This would give her the best chance at finding the perfect forever family. When asked if we could help Skeeter move forward, MAGSR immediately welcomed her to the rescue.

Skeeter is a friendly, interactive and energetic girl. As a young dog, she still has all the puppy antics that would be expected at her age. She is looking for an active household that will help her exercise both her mind and body on a daily basis. Skeeter is a social girl. However, it is critical that her family continue to provide her with socialization. This will help her develop into a stable adult. As Skeeter had been in quarantine for a few months, she did not have the opportunity to develop her leash skills. However, now that she has joined the rescue, our volunteers have begun to develop these skills. As is true of all dogs, Skeeter will benefit greatly from training. Training will not only help Skeeter build a healthy bond with her forever family, but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. Skeeter is looking for a forever family that will love her for a lifetime. Could that family be you?

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Keith was picked up as a stray and brought to a local shelter. Staff members immediately noticed that Keith was a happy and friendly guy who enjoyed every ounce of attention he could get. Although they waited for his family to come and claim him, no one stepped forward for Keith. Recognizing that this guy would be best placed through a breed specific rescue, he was transferred to the MAGSR family. We promised shelter staff that we would find Keith the perfect forever family. 

Keith is an active and social guy.  Definitely treat motivated, Keith is often an absolute goofball when food is involved. This motivation will be very helpful when it comes to training. Lacking much experience with a leash, Keith is still learning how to walk without pulling. However, he is a smart guy and seems to be picking up new skills quickly. As is true of all shepherds, Keith will thrive in an environment that is structured and has clear routines. He craves leadership and is responsive to a calm and confident handler. Good with other dogs, Keith enjoys the company of other dogs and simply wants to play. As Keith moves forward, it is vital that his forever family continues to social him in a controlled environment with other people and animals. This will help him maintain his skills. It is also imperative that Keith's family enroll him in training. Training is very important as it will not only help Keith establish a healthy bond with his forever family, but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen.

Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 1 year 11 months
Color: Tan
Current Size: 74 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 85 lbs
Housebroken: Likely
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

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

Tazz is a sweet and handsome guy. He and his brother Julio found themselves dumped in a Southern shelter for eating one of the free range chickens on their farm. It’s really no wonder these young boys turned to hunting for their own food as they came in skin and bones and desperate for a good meal.  The positive for these boys is that with consistent food at the shelter they have already started to gain some much needed weight.

Although Tazz and Julio are littermates, they are not bonded and we have found they do better apart. We have found that Tazz is a bit more laid back of the two brothers but both boys are sweet natured and extremely friendly. Both were excellent travels on their several day journey to MAGSR and were reported to be easy to load in and out of their crate and friendly to all they met on the road trip.

Tazz is a friendly, playful, and intelligent guy but don’t let any young GSD fool you as they all will push to see what they can get away with when being handled. He has your typical GSD shenanigans going on. As a young dog, Tazz will thrive with structure, clear routines, and leadership. He is beginning to learn basic manners and how to walk on leash without pulling. However, Tazz, like all dogs, will need training. Training will not only help him bond to his forever family but it will also help him develop into the good canine citizen we know he is destined to become. Tazz is looking for a family that enjoys an interactive dog, playtime, and lots, we mean lots, of belly rubs. If this boy sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet Tazz today.

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Panzer was welcomed into her family a few years ago when they heard that she would be dropped at a shelter if they didn't welcome her in. Recognizing that Panzer was a special girl, she joined the family and never looked back. Although they loved Panzer and made sure that she had everything they needed, her family recognized that they could not provide her with the time and attention that she deserved. As a result, they made the difficult decision to rehome Panzer. When asked if we could help Panzer find an active household that could meet her needs, we were happy to welcome her to the MAGSR family. 

Panzer is in many ways your typical shepherd. She is active, interactive, and bouncy with her people. Thriving on attention and interaction, Panzer loves to be doted upon. Cuddly and affectionate, once comfortable, Panzer would be happy to spend quality time as a lap dog after a day of play. She doesn't quite realize that she is a full-grown shepherd. Although Panzer lived with a dog in her previous household for a few years, she has not had many interactions with other dogs. As a result, we are still learning about her doggy socialization skills. Already knowing a few commands, such as sit and stay, Panzer will be a delight in training class. Not only will training help Panzer bond to her new family but it will also help her develop the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. Training helps to focus the mind and develop confidence. Panzer will benefit from both. Having lived in a home, Panzer understands the joys of a soft bed, good food, endless belly rubs, and plenty of toys. Squeaky toys are her favorite and she is hoping her new family loves these toys as much as she does. Panzer is looking for a forever family that has time for an active girl, could that be with you?

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Scream was picked up as a stray and brought to a local shelter. Although he waited patiently for his family to come and claim him, no one stepped forward. This was surprising as staff members could tell this boy was well socialized with people and had clearly been loved. Recognizing that living in a shelter environment is difficult for the breed, staff members began working to move Scream into a breed specific rescue. When we saw that Scream needed support to move forward, MAGSR stepped in and welcome this sweet guy to the family. 

 

Scream is a big, beautiful, and sometimes talkative guy. Having clearly been socialized with people, he seems to understand that people are treats, love and attention. Scream is delighted to hang out with his people and loves attention and petting. It appears that Scream has also been introduced to toys. He enjoys a good game of fetch and does know to drop the ball when asked. Although he enjoys many toys, Scream seems most excited with a ball. He is hoping his forever family has a strong throwing arm. Playful but gentle, Scream has definitely learned some manners when it comes to toys and treats. As he moves forward, Scream will benefit from a household that will provide him with the structure, routine and leadership that all GSDs crave. Although he seems to already have a good start with manners, it is essential that Scream attends training with his forever family. Not only will this help him create a safe and healthy bond with his family, but it will also help him further develop the skills needed to become a stable and confident adult. If your family is looking for a very smart, friendly, and interactive guy, ask to meet Scream today!

Updates:

Scream is starting to settle into a life out of the kennel. His favorite things are cuddles, hot dogs, walks and fetch! He is friendly to everyone he meets, and particularly enjoys his feline foster brothers. He needs a little time to warm up to canine counterparts but definitely wants to play when he decides they aren't a threat. Scream is learning leash manners and how to respect boundaries like doorways and stairs. He bonds to his people very quickly and rather strongly, preferring to be the perfect velcro dog with a practiced shepherd lean. What he really needs is a family he can call his own to love him and show him the finer things in life!

Current Size: 50 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

Good With Kids: Older kids, over 16
Good With Cats: No
Other Dogs OK: Not good with small dogs
DESCRIPTION:

Beautiful Brandi was picked up as a stray with her mate, Boscoe. These two incredible dogs had clearly been through some difficult times. Recognizing that these special pups would be most successful if they decompressed in foster homes, another rescue arranged for them to stay in foster families while they waited out their stray hold. Both dogs were placed in loving foster homes with other dogs. When their stray hold had ended and they had had some time to decompress, we were asked if we could welcome both dogs into the rescue. Really, who could say no to such a lovely pair of dogs?

Brandi is a lovely girl. She arrived with wounds on her shoulders and underweight. Her foster family worked hard to get Brandi healed and healthy. Although we do not know anything about Brandi's past, it does appear that she was mishandled at some point. As a result, she can be timid and fearful with new people, particularly with men. A slow approach and some tasty treats go a long way with Brandi. She does warm up with a calm, confident, and patient handler. Brandi is looking for a forever family that will give her the opportunity to slowly adjust to the household. Providing Brandi with clear structure, routine, and guidance will be key to her success. When ready, Brandi will benefit greatly from training. Training will help Brandi build a strong, healthy bond with her forever family; it will also help her develop the stability and confidence needed to navigate her world. While living with her foster family in the south, Brandi did begin to develop her socialization skills. She also has learned the joys of living in a safe and loving home. At this time Brandi is housebroken and crate trained. However, she will likely need to fine tune her skills once she finds her forever home. 

Unfortunately, Brandi is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have easily been avoided had Brandi been provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. Although treatment is very expensive, this active little girl is beyond worth the cost. Brandi's entire heartworm treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Donations toward her care are greatly appreciated as this will help us not only help this lovely girl get all of the care that she needs, but it will also help us continue to support medical dogs in need. Brandi will need to take it easy over the next few months while she completes her treatment. However, this will give her time to adjust to her forever family. If Brandi sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today. 

Updates:

Are you by any chance a morning person? Do you like to jog or hike? Brandi is looking to be your best friend. She wakes up ready to go and wants to be a velcro pup. After being here for a few weeks we've gotten a chance to see a little bit more about her. She is a pokey puppy. She loves to poke her nose everywhere and get the latest news. I also think she might have been best friends with a cat at some point. She constantly rubs up against everything just like a cat-- starting at her shoulder and curving down to the tail. So cute!

She would do best in a house with a little space from neighbors. She sings the blues when left alone and talks in yips and barks about her day regularly. She also barks loudly at people outside the door. Not characteristics that would be loved by apartment neighbors! 

She is housebroken when kept to her schedule and sticks to her potty spot. She knows sit, in the crate, and down, and we are working on targeting/touch. She shows great potential but would do better if allowed exercise to calm her busy brain before being asked to focus. 

I think she would be best with older children only. She likes to jump up and lick your face when she is anxious or needs to check back in with you. We are working on correcting that habit but she can't get any exercise right now which doesn't help. She also can be a bit mouthy and she has tried to catch hold of my sleeve (not my arm) a few times. Surprisingly though, she doesn't bite down on your hand when taking a treat. Your whole hand can end up in her mouth with her exuberance to get the food. But, at least she doesn't bite down on you. She is very food motivated and very food-focused right now. She will try to take food away from my dog so she would do best with a dog that is not food protective. I think she would do fine in a house with other dogs that tolerate teen rough-housing, or in a house without other dogs. She could use the exercise provided by a pack but would be fine if you plan on being that exercise source. She does very well with our routine and knows where she's supposed to be and, most importantly, which meal is supposed to come next. Did I mention she's food fixated? 

She is not the best gardening buddy. Her favorite thing is to sit right in front of you, right on the dirt you just dug up so you could plant something, sticks her nose in the dirt to check the news, and then tries to give you a kiss right on the mouth. She will help dig though! She is prey driven, however, so she does keep the rabits, birds, and squirrels away from the garden very well. Hard toys only for this pup. She eviscerated a stuffy, grabbed up the pieces and chomped like she was going to swallow them in less than a minute. Fortunately, she is also very distractable (with the promise of food of course). 

She is very ready to find her forever family. If you're looking to add a happy, bouncy young lady to your home, please consider her!

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Midas was picked up as a stray and brought to a local shelter. Although he waited patiently for his forever family, no one came for this big, sweet guy. Recognizing that Midas would be most successful if placed within a breed specific rescue, shelter staff began reaching out for a placement. When we learned about Midas' need for placement, we immediately reached out to help.

 

Midas is a big, handsome, sweet boy. He enjoys the company of his people and seems particularly drawn to calm and confident handlers. He can be a little hesitant with new people and situations, but with time and patience he warms up nicely. Still learning leash manners, Midas does do some pulling. He will need to build leash manners particularly, since he has a lot of weight behind his pull. Well-behaved in the car, Midas enjoys looking out the window and getting the occasional head rub while traveling. As a young dog, Midas will thrive in an environment where he has structure, routine, and leadership. Training will go a long way with Midas. Not only will it help him develop a strong, healthy bond with his forever family, but it will also help him develop into a stable adult. Midas is looking for a forever family that will give him opportunities for daily exercise as well as extra love. If Midas sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet him today!

DESCRIPTION:

Annika was returned to MAGSR's care after incidents with the other dog of the household, as well as the cat. She will be looking for a forever family where she can be the sole animal in the home to be the center of attention. 

Annika is a beautiful young adult with a big personality. She is extremely intelligent and observant of her environment. She also forms strong bonds with her humans and is very affectionate. Annika will be protective of the house once she sees it as her place. She will thrive with a confident handler and structured training to bring out her potential, because she lives for meaningful interactions with her people. She is active and a jumper, and may be a candidate for agility training or other activities that engage her intelligence.

She loves tummy rubs and affection, walks, and interactive games. She learns quickly when pepperoni treats are on hand, and will even play a good game of hide and seek the treat. Annika likes her crate and is fully house trained. She walks well on the leash, learns commands quickly, loves car rides and exploring new environments like trails and parks.

If sweet Annika sounds like the right match for your family, please ask to meet her today. 

Updates:

Annika continues to practice and learn commands - including sit, stay, lie down, go to bed (she runs into her crate), go find (hide and seek treats), and when waiting for the walk signal at intersections she’ll sit with a snap of the fingers. With a few taps to your shoulder she’ll snuggle up and fall asleep. She loves her humans and is forever ready for a walk, demonstrating excellent leash walking manners (until a squirrel crosses her path, but who could blame her for wanting to catch one?). She has no problem meeting other dogs on walks, she simply doesn’t wish to live with them. Annika is thoroughly house trained, staying at home for hours on her own snoozing on the couch until it’s time to greet you at the door with eager tail wags.

DESCRIPTION:

The Hocus Pocus puppies - Mary, Sarah, and Winnie - were picked up as strays in the south and brought to a shelter. Upon their arrival shelter staff contacted MAGSR for help as they were at capacity. Recognizing that these babies needed to move forward, we immediately moved them into the MAGSR family. Although they survived upper respiratory infections, the girls' systems were not as equipped to fight off parvo when they popped positive. In the end, all three of the girls needed to be hospitalized to receive around the clock care. Although they fought hard to survive, sweet Winnie crossed over the bridge leaving her sisters, Mary and Sarah, behind. With a lot of love and a lot of people pulling for them, Mary and Sarah survived. We are so glad to see these lovely girls thriving and know that their sister is watching over them from the bridge.

Sarah is a friendly and outgoing little girl. She is ready for any adventure and is happy to lead the way. She is hoping that her forever family likes to explore and can't wait to learn all about the world around her. Not huge fans of heat, the girls do get warm easily and often prefer cooler surfaces to blankets. Both Sarah and Mary do understand the joy of a doggy cot and can often be found relaxing on one. Already comfortable with toys, the girls are big fans of things that squeak and crackle. An empty water bottle keeps them entertained for quite some time. Having lived in a foster home, the girls have been making great progress with their housetraining and are adjusting well to crating. When crated, they are pretty content most of the time. These girls have already begun to socialize with other animals and people. However, it is critical that their forever families continue this process. A well-socialized pup will develop into a stable adult. As they continue to grow, both girls will also need to attend training. Training will not only help them create a healthy bond with their families, it will also help them develop into good canine citizens. 

Although these little survivors are super puppies, now they have beaten parvo, they are now free to be puppies. Please remember that puppies are a lot of work. They will whine, chew, have accidents, and fill your home with endless puppy antics. With time, patience, structure, and routine, Sarah will develop the skills necessary to become a stable adult. If this little girl sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet Sarah today!

History: Cobbler was returned at age 8 months. This is her original write-up: Lovely Cobbler, her mom - Sugar Pie - and her five siblings - Tort, Cake, Crumble, Pudding, and Sundae - were dumped in the south when the puppies were just hours old. Fortunately, the right people found them and immediately started networking to help this family move forward. With rescue support provided and a plan in place, the little family was moved into an experienced foster home so that they could receive the love and attention needed to survive. Although they struggled at first, with time, attention, and some extra love, the pups and their mom pulled through.  The dessert puppies are now ready to move forward into their forever families. These adorable little fluffy puppies have had the benefit of living with a loving home. Although they have been well socialized with people and other dogs, it is critical that their new families continue this process as it will help them develop into stable adults. The dessert puppies are absolute sweethearts; however, 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, training, and patience, Cobbler will develop into the good canine citizen we know she is destined to become. Cobbler is looking for a loving forever home that will commit to her for a lifetime. Could that be with you?

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

Lovely little Cobbler is one of Sugar Pie's puppies. Having been born into the rescue, we have had the unique opportunity to watch her grow. Adopted as a puppy, Cobbler's family adored her. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, they could no longer provide for her. Recognizing that Cobbler deserved a safe and loving forever family, they contacted MAGSR to make sure that Cobbler could move forward safely. We immediately welcomed this lovely little girl back into the MAGSR family at 9 months old and promised that we would find her the perfect forever home.

As a young, affectionate, and energetic girl, Cobbler is looking for an active family that will exercise both her body and her mind on a daily basis. She will happily come along for a long walk, run, or hike filling each adventure with puppy smiles and love. As a young dog, it is imperative that Cobbler's family continue to socialize her with new people and animals in controlled settings. This will help her develop into a stable and confident adult. Cobbler has had the luck of having lived in a loving home, as a result, she knows many of the ins and outs of household rules. However, she will need to adjust to the structure, routine, rules of her forever home. This will take time and patience as Cobbler learns expectations. Training will be very important for Cobbler as she moves forward. Not only will it help her develop a health bond with her family, but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. Cobbler can't wait to settle into her forever home. Could that be with you?

DESCRIPTION:

Saxon and his buddy, Ozzy, were victims of a house fire. When their family lost their home, they realized that they could no longer provide their dogs with the care that they deserved. As a result, they surrendered the dogs to a shelter. Upon arrival, it was evident that Saxon and Ozzy lacked socialization. They had lived with a pack of dogs; however, it seems that they had limited exposure to new situations and new people. Shelter staff immediately began working with the boys to build trust and move them forward. However, they recognized that Saxon and Ozzy would likely not thrive in a shelter setting. As a result, they sent out a plea for rescue placement. When we learned about the boys, we put plans together to welcome both Saxom and Ozzy into the MAGSR family. 

Saxom is a stunning guy. Intelligent, confident, and driven he is in many ways the definition of a GSD. Good at reading the handler, Saxom is most successful when working with a calm and clear handler. He will thrive in an environment with structure, routine, and leadership. Although we do not know much about his previous home, we have learned that Saxom is both ball and food motivated. He picks up commands quickly and is always game for a game of fetch. An energetic guy, Saxom is looking for an active family that will exercise both his mind and his body on a daily basis. This is critical as Saxom will find other ways of entertaining himself if activity is not provided. Already picking up a few commands, Saxom will be a star at training class. Training is necessary as Saxom will need to develop a strong and healthy bond with his forever family. He will also need to develop the skills needed to develop into a good canine citizen. Saxom is looking for a loving family that will commit to him for a lifetime. Could that be with you?

DESCRIPTION:

Julio is a sweet and handsome guy. He and his brother Tazz found themselves dumped in a Southern shelter for eating one of the free range chickens on their farm. It’s really no wonder these young boys turned to hunting for their own food as they came in skin and bones and desperate for a good meal.  The positive for these boys is that with consistent food at the shelter they have already started to gain some much needed weight.

Although Julio and Tazz are littermates, they are not bonded and we have found they do better apart. We have found that Julio is the more dominant of the two brothers but both boys are sweet natured and extremely friendly. Both were excellent travels on their several day journey to MAGSR and were reported to be easy to load in and out of their crate and friendly to all they met on the road trip.

Julio is a friendly, playful, and intelligent guy. Unsurprisingly, he does like to see what he can get away with when being handled. He has your typical GSD shenanigans going on. As a young dog, Julio will thrive with structure, clear routines, and leadership. He is beginning to learn basic manners and how to walk on leash without pulling. However, Julio, like all dogs, will need training. Training will not only help him bond to his forever family but it will also help him develop into the good canine citizen we know he is destined to become. Julio is looking for a family that enjoys an interactive dog, playtime, and lots, we mean lots, of belly rubs. If this boy sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet Julio today.

DESCRIPTION:

Rush was picked up as a stray in the south and brought to a shelter. Shelter staff immediately fell in love with this goofy, playful guy. However, due to overcrowding and lack of resources, they knew that Rush would have his best chance at finding the perfect forever home if he was moved into a rescue. When asked if we could help Rush find an amazing forever home, MAGSR stepped forward. 

Wiggly and playful Rush is an absolute joy. Clearly well socialized with people, Rush is a charmer who loves to be with his people. Although Rush is clearly a sweet pup, he does still need to learn about personal space and boundaries. This is typical of any young GSD. In many ways Rush is still very much a puppy. He will fill his family's lives with goofy puppy behaviors and antics. As is true of all young dogs, Rush will thrive in an environment with structure, routine, and leadership. It will be essential that his family continue to socialize him in controlled settings. It is also critical that Rush's forever family exercise both his body and his mind on a daily basis. Training will help Rush as he moves forward. It will not only help him develop a strong and healthy bond with his family but it will also help him develop into a stable and confident adult. Rush is looking for an active family that will both enjoy his charming personality as well as provide him with a safe and loving forever home. Could that be with you?

Updates:

Update: Rush is settling into his foster home well.  This boy has oodles of puppy energy and is looking for a family that is excited to play, run, and train to exercise both his mind and body.  He's still learning what is expected in a home and can be a bit mouthy, but he is learning quickly as we set boundaries for him.  He is very affectionate, wanting to snuggle into our laps and be close with his people.  He does very well in the crate while we are teleworking. He's not particularly fond of going into his crate yet, but he's learning and settles in quickly for a nap after some good play time or a walk.  He walks nicely on leash, making the much needed walks a pleasure.  He does very well with other dogs his size.  He has not reacted to his alpha foster sister's sass and still wants to play with her after she tells him off which is very impressive!  Sometimes he plays a bit rough and is still learning when other dogs are done, so supervision is important.  As with most young dogs, he will chew on anything he can get in his mouth but we're working on learning what is and isn't allowed as a chew toy.  Have I mentioned that he is beyond handsome?  He's got these soft fluffy curls on his rump that we just adore!    All in all, this young pup is a total blast, making us laugh with his adorable antics and impressing us with his intelligence.  He's going to make a fantastic family member for some lucky family. Think Rush might be the right fit for your home?  Apply to adopt today!

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Sasquatch was picked up as a stray in the south by another rescue. It was clear that this big love bug needed some help. Fortunately, he met the right people. While waiting out his stray hold, rescuers worked with the local animal control to try to find his family. It was thought that a dog this sweet must have had a home. Unfortunately, no one came to claim Sasquatch. Recognizing that this guy deserved a loving forever family of his own, it was decided that Sasquatch would have his best chance at permanency if he was moved to another region. When asked if we could help Sasquatch move forward, MAGSR welcomed him to the family. 

Sasquatch is a gentle giant. As an older dog, he has surpassed the stages of puppy antics and is settled in his personality. Happy to interact with other people and dogs, Sasquatch is a pretty easy-going guy. He likes his walks and play time, but he is also perfectly happy to hang out with his people. Although we do not know anything about Sasquatch's past, we do know that his future is very bright. As Sasquatch moves forward, he is looking for a family that will provide him with the structure and routine that all dogs need to thrive. Sasquatch is also looking for a comfortable bed, plenty of treats, and lots of toys. I mean, can you really blame him? As is true with all dogs, Sasquatch will need to participate in training. Training will not only help Sasquatch bond to his forever family, but it will also help him become a good canine citizen. Sasquatch is looking for a loving forever home that will give him the opportunity to live out his golden years in comfort and safety. Could that be with you?

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.

Current Size: 77 lbs
Housebroken: Likely
Obedience Trained: No

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Jazz was surrendered to a local shelter in very poor shape. Covered in demodex mange with a severe secondary skin infection that had festered to the point of open, bleeding sores and raw patches throughout his body, Jazz was clearly in significant pain from nose to tail for some time. Although shelter staff did everything they could to bring Jazz relief, they recognized that this guy needed to be moved into a rescue where he could begin working with a private vet to address his medical needs. When our volunteers learned about Jazz's situation, we began working putting things in place to welcome Jazz to MAGSR. 

Although Jazz's condition has been left untreated for sometime and has clearly caused him significant pain, he remains an absolute sweetheart. Jazz enjoys the company of people of all ages. He is friendly and interactive. Not only does Jazz enjoy the company of his people, he also does well with furry friends of various sizes. He really is an impressive guy. At this time, Jazz is resting and recovering under the watchful eye of his foster family. With antibiotics, pain medication, and regular baths, he is beginning to find relief and can relax in the comfort and safety of a home. Jazz's medical needs are expensive; however, we know that this handsome guy is beyond worth the cost. Please consider donating to Jazz's care. Your donation will not only help us continue to move Jazz forward but it will also help us continue to support dogs with medical needs. As he continues to heal, Jazz is hoping to find a loving forever home that will commit to him for a lifetime. Could that be with you?

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

Lovely Zayna was welcomed into her home as a puppy. Her family immediately fell in love with her and began implementing a framework for success. They made sure she had all of her puppy vetting completed, had her participate in puppy training, socialized her with people and other dogs, and even began adult training class. Unfortunately, poor breeding put a stop to all of their hard work as Zayna developed severe hip dysplasia that resulted in a hip dislocation. Due to the extentent of the injury, Zayna needed a full hip replacement. Although they loved Zayna, her family recognized that they could not afford the level of care she would need in order to move forward. As a result, they made the difficult decision to surrender her to MAGSR in order to get the care she needed. We promised that we would find Zayna a safe and loving forever family that would ensure she had everything she needs. 

Zayna is young, inquisitive, and energetic. It is highly evident that her family put a lot of work into providing her with experiences and opportunities to develop confidence. Playful and toy driven, Zayna understands the joys of chasing a ball or bouncing around with a favorite chew toy. Having lived in a home, she has a good understanding of the rules of living in a household. Zayna is both housebroken and crate trained. As a young shepherd, Zayna will continue to thrive in a household where she has structure, routine, and leadership. These are key features of a GSD savvy home. 

Unfortunately, due to the extent of her injury, Zayna is unable to participate in many of her favorite activities at this time. Fortunately, our vetting team has already begun to put plans in place to help Zayna move forward. Placed on anti-inflammatories while she gets everything in place for surgery, Zayna is comfortable and seems to understand that she needs to take it easy for right now. In order to correct her injury, Zayna will need a full hip replacement. Although this is a very expensive surgery, we know that this lovely girl is beyond worth the cost. Please consider donating to Zayna's care. Your donation will not only help us provide Zayna with the medical support she desperately needs, but it will also help us continue to support other medical dogs. Over the next few months Zayna will need to take it easy while she rests and recovers. However, she should be back to being her typical self in time. Please continue to watch for updates on Zayna as she continues her journey toward full recovery.

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Murphy was found hanging out at a high school with his buddy Millie. 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?

Murphy is a playful and energetic guy. He is friendly and good with both people and other dogs. However, he can be vocal with new dogs when first meeting them. As a young guy, Murphy has energy to burn and will do best in a home that can exercise his mind and his body on a daily basis. Arriving as a stray, we do not know what Murphy knows about living in a household. However, he seems to be a quick learner who wants to please his handler. As is true of all dogs, Murphy will thrive when provided with guidance, leadership, and consistency. Training will help him adjust to his new family as well as develop the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. Murphy is looking for a forever family that will love and care for him for a lifetime. Could that be with you?

DESCRIPTION:

Titan's family adored him. He brought endless love and joy to their family. However, due to circumstances beyond their control, they could no longer continue to care for him. Although this was a devastating decision, Titan's family knew he deserved every opportunity to find a new family who would love and care for him throughout his golden years. We promised them that we would make sure that Titan found the perfect home. 

Titan is a happy, friendly, and joyful guy. A big fan of cuddles and the lean in, Titan regularly seeks out affection from his people. Open to a variety of entertainment options, Titan loves balls, toys, and bones. Although Titan does enjoy his playtime, he is also very good at being a couch potato. He has just the right amount of energy for family life. As a mature fellow, Titan understands the rules of the household. He is housebroken and crate trained. His days of puppy behaviors are behind him. A great companion, Titan keeps an eye on his people and always wants to be part of the fun. 

As can happen with age, Titan does have some special needs. Titan has been diagnosed with chronic progressive cerebellar disease. This condition causes him to have some stability issues and some exaggerated movements. Although he lacks the smooth movements of a younger dog, Titan's condition does not impact his ability to love and be loved. Titan is looking for a household where he can avoid stairs as he is unable to navigate staircases safely. He will also need a home that has carpeted floors or mats to help him more effectively cross surfaces within the household. Titan is an incredibly special guy. If your household is looking for a sweet, affectionate, mature guy, ask to meet Titan today. 

Updates:

Sweet Titan has adjusted well in his foster home. He enjoys a daily routine that includes a few walks, playtime, opportunities to check on everyone in the family, and of course unending snuggles. Titan loves to be outside with his people. Everyone and everything he sees is exciting. Between regular interactions with neighbors, the brief glimpses of local wildlife, and boundless opportunities for sniffing, his outside time is full of positivity. Although clearly happy outside, Titan exudes joy all day long. When inside, Titan has perfect household manners. He keeps an eye on his people at all times and likes to be in close proximity to them. Although Titan does enjoy some playtime with his ball each day, he is happy to hang out and snuggle too. Titan is looking for a forever home that will love him throughout his golden years. Could that be with you?

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Beau is an incredibly sweet guy. His family had some changes over the last year that resulted in a move from the family's farm to a suburban townhouse life. Unfortunately, Beau was not adjusting well to these changes. Recognizing that Beau would be happier in a different environment with a family with the ability to spend more time with him, his family made the difficult decision to surrender him to MAGSR. We promised that we would find Beau an amazing forever home where he would have every opportunity to enjoy himself.

Beau is one amazing guy. He has clearly been well socialized with people. He is beyond friendly with everyone he meets, but we are still learning how he interacts with other dogs. Beau loves ear rubs, frisbee, car rides and has been the perfect patient at the vet. It is very apparent that he has a special personality. 

As is true of all shepherds, Beau needs a forever family that can provide him with the time, structure, and training needed to meet with success. Training is key as it will not only help Beau create a healthy bond with his new family, but it will also help him develop the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. MAGSR has already begun working with Beau to build his basic training. However, it will be critical that his forever family continue this process. 

Additionally, Beau has some medical needs that we are in the process of addressing. He arrived with a large lump on his back leg that had broken open and was severely infected. He was taken to the vet and the lump was biopsied. At this time the results are pending. The lump will likely need surgical removal. However, while we await results, we are keeping Beau safe and comfortable with a loving foster family. It seems that Beau realizes that we are trying to help and has been patient with all procedures. 

If Beau sounds like the perfect addition to your family please submit an app today!

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely little Paisley was picked up as a stray and brought to a local shelter. Although she waited patiently for her family to claim her, no one arrived to bring her home. Recognizing that this little lady would be best placed if in a rescue, shelter staff reached out for help. When we heard that Paisley was looking for rescue, our team immediately began putting things in place to welcome her to MAGSR. 

Happy-go-lucky Paisley is a social and interactive girl. She has clearly been well socialized with people and thinks that everyone should take a chance to say hi. Although she loves her people, as is true of all puppies, Paisley will need to learn manners. Not only is Paisley social with people, she is also social with other animals. She is the life of the party and happy to bring joy wherever she goes. Typical of any GSD, Paisley will definitely need play time but she will also need structure, routine, and leadership. This will help her develop the mindset needed to become a confident and stable adult GSD. Although Miss Paisley is cute as a button, please remember that puppies are a lot of work. They will whine, bark, chew on inappropriate things, and have accidents. With time, patience, routine, and regular exercise, Paisley will become the good canine citizen we know she is destined to be.

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Persephone was picked up as a stray and brought to a local shelter. Upon arrival shelter staff knew something was very wrong. Persephone was vomiting and had bloody stool. Hoping they were wrong, shelter staff ran a parvo test. Unfortunately, it came back positive. Recognizing that this virus kills countless dogs every year, shelter staff immediately began putting parvo protocols into place hoping that Persephone was a fighter. Although they took excellent care of Persephone, shelter staff knew that Persephone would be most successful if she was placed in a rescue where she could continue to get the care she needed and recuperate in a loving foster home. When we heard about Persephone's situation, our team immediately began putting plans into place to help this little one join the MAGSR family. 

As a young girl, Persephone should be busy playing, napping, and learning about the world around her. Unfortunately, right now, this is not the case. Instead Persephone is under the care of one of our amazing veterinarians while she fights for her life. Positive for both parvo and pancreatitis, Persephone is receiving around the clock supportive care so that her body has time to heal. So far, it appears that this little girl has a lot of fight in her. We are hoping this remains. Please consider donating to Persephone's care. Caring for a pup with parvo is very expensive. However, we know that Persephone is beyond worth the cost. Your donation will not only help us support Persephone as she fights for survival but it will also help us welcome other dogs with medical needs. 

At this time, Persephone is not ready for adoption. However, we hope that in time she will be ready for a forever home that will give her a lifetime of love. Please remember that puppies are a lot of work. They will whine, cry, have accidents, and chew on inappropriate items. With time, patience, structure, and routine, Persephone will develop into the good canine citizen we know she is destined to become. 

Updates:

I picked up sweet Persephone on Friday the 13th and took her from the animal shelter  to the hospital so she could be treated and monitored further.  She had bright eyes and wagged her tail when I approached.  We were still worried that she might not make a recovery but she is a little fighter!  I picked her up from the hospital the following Monday and what a change!  Her eyes were even brighter and her tail wags were more vigorous.  She has been eating and playing and doing what normal puppies should do.  

You can tell that after her time on the streets, she has learned to fend for herself and fight for what she wants.  She can resource guard food and her favorite person.  I am hand feeding her and teaching her that there is plenty of food, toys and people to love on her.  Her new family will need to work with her so she grows into a well mannered canine citizen.  She is a quick learner.  She sits for food, treats, to leave the crate and at doors (if asked).  She is very food motivated.  She sleeps in her crate at night and loves to be with the pack.  She doesn't like to be left behind.  She  is gaining more weight daily.  She loves to play with her other puppy friends and would enjoy a companion - probably a male or non-alpha female.  She hasn't met any children or cats yet and would likely be fine with them but she is a puppy and has those razor sharp teeth.  We are working on potty training and she is making great progress.  

Look no further if you want a beautiful puppy full of spunk and energy! She promises to love you back ten fold.

Good With Kids: Older kids, over 16

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Bosco was picked up as a stray with his mate, Brandi. These two incredible dogs had clearly been through some difficult times. Recognizing that these incredible dogs would be most successful if they decompressed in foster homes, another rescue arranged for them to stay in foster families while they waited out their stray hold. Both dogs were placed in loving foster homes with other dogs. When their stray hold had ended and they had had some time to decompress, we were asked if we could welcome both dogs into the rescue. Really, who could say no to such a lovely pair of dogs?

Bosco is a big, intelligent, and driven guy. He reads the handler very well but will, like many driven shepherds, will push the line if he has an opportunity. For this reason, Bosco will be best suited for an experienced GSD household. A huge fan of balls, Bosco is hoping that his forever family has a good throwing arm and enjoys play time just as much as he does. As is true of all shepherds, Bosco will thrive in a household that provides him with structure, guidance, and routine. Although Bosco has already begun training, it is essential that his new family continue this process. Training will not only help Bosco bond with his forever family but it will also help him become a good canine citizen.

Other Dogs OK: Better with big dogs
DESCRIPTION:

Alpha and Beta appeared outside the home of an experienced GSD family. Recognizing the boys needed a safe place to stay while their family was located, this family brought the boys in and began making calls to local vets, shelters, and lost dog groups. Although word quickly spread that Alpha and Beta had been found and were safe, no one came to bring the boys home. When their stray hold ended, this family began working with local rescues to move the boys forward so that they could be safely placed in a loving forever home. As a member of the rescue network contacted to support Alpha and Beta, MAGSR was happy to step forward and help the boys move into the rescue family.

Alpha is a big, intelligent, and inquisitive guy. His name fits him well as he does like to be the leader. Although more confident than his buddy, Beta, Alpha lacks experience with new people and situations. As a result, he can be unsure and avoidant at first. When given time to adjust, Alpha becomes more affectionate and eager to interact. Clearly an intelligent guy, Alpha reads the handler well. He will be most successful in an experienced household. As is true of all young dogs, Beta will thrive when provided with clear structure, routine, and leadership. Continued socialization is critical as Alpha will need to learn how to navigate new environments and new people in a stable and confident manner. Training is essential as it will not only help Alpha create a healthy bond with his forever family, but it will also help him develop the stability and confidence needed to become a good canine citizen. 

Unfortunately, we have discovered that Alpha is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if he had been provided monthly prevention. Alpha's heartworm treatment has already begun. Although treatment is expensive, this incredible guy is beyond worth the cost. Please consider donating to Alpha's medical treatment. Your generosity will help us provide Alpha with the care he needs as well as other dogs with medical conditions. Alpha will need to take it easy over the next couple of months while he undergoes treatment. However, he will be ready to bounce around again soon. If you are looking for a young, intelligent, and active guy, ask to meet Alpha today.

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Lucky is looking for a calm and patient household that will commit to him for a lifetime. 

Updates:

Lucky's foster is happy to report he is settling in nicely with his foster humans and foster siblings.  Lucky is house broken and crate trained.  He acts like a big puppy so his foster is working on his jumping when he gets excited.  He loves playing with toys, will nudge your hand for pets and loves to give kisses.  We think he was taught not to get on the furniture in his previous home as he will lay at your feet quite happy to be close to his human but will not try to get on the furniture.  Lucky has not been well socialized so he can get skittish, but in the week he has been with MAGSR he is calming down nicely.

,

Lucky is doing great in his foster home. He can be wary of new people and will need to be given time to trust new people and situations.  He warms up after a few days and is very attached to his foster and follows her everywhere and sleeps right beside the bed. He still seeks out his crate for refuge when he is scared and likely a product of being confined to his crate in previous home. Lucky is a sweet boy that just wants love and attention. His jumping has improved immensely but still gets excited when outside playing. Lucky will do best in a home without small children or small animals as he will chase small animals and due to his size may unintentionally knock a child over.   He is working on his leash manners and loves going for walks and gets very excited.  Lucky is hoping a little "Luck of the Irish" will help him find his forever home in the month of March, ask to meet Lucky today.

Current Size: 70 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: Working on it

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

Lovely Farrah was adored by her family. They ensured she had everything she needed and was well loved. However, due to circumstances beyond their control, they needed to rehome Farrah. As a MAGSR dog, Farrah returned so that we could find her a new family. We promised Farrah's family that we would find her the perfect match.

 

Farrah is a social butterfly. She enjoys the company of people of all ages. However, she has a particular affinity for the company of children. She is simply delighted by their presence and has always been gentle with them. Perhaps this comes from being a mom herself at a young age. Although Farrah enjoys the company of other dogs, she would be most successful if placed with stable furry friends who are comfortable with an alpha's personality. She, like anyone, can be a little protective of her food. Then, again, who isn't when they are hungry or have something special? As is typical of all GSDs, Farrah is active and playful. She loves a good game of chase; however, she will need to develop a strong recall before playing this particular game. In order to continue to remain stable and confident, it is essential that Farrah's forever family exercise both her body and her mind on a daily basis. Training will be a critical piece of her exercise regiment; it will not only help Farrah develop a strong bond with her family, but it will also help her stimulate her mind. Farrah already knows several commands and enjoys the interaction. She will likely be the star of the class. 

 

Farrah is looking for a playful and active family that will care for her for a lifetime. Could that be with you?
