Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Mix
Age: 7 months 1 week
Color: Black and Tan
Current Size: 10 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: Unknown
Housebroken: No, I'm a puppy!
Obedience Trained: No, I'm a puppy!
Altered: No

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

Lovely Nancy and her siblings- Nathan, Natalie, Nadia, and Nellie, were dropped off at a shelter when their owner could not afford their care. This cute little family needed rescue immediately as a shelter is not a safe place for puppies. When MAGSR heard the shelter's plea, we stepped up to help these adorable babies find their forever homes.   

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

Gunter
GunterGunterGunterGunterGunter
Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 3 years 6 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 70 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 80 lbs
Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: No

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

Gunter is a survivor. Owned by a hoarder in the south and used for breeding purposes, Gunter's life had been filled with pain and suffering. However, when another rescue stepped up and removed Gunter and several other dogs from the premises, Gunter's life changed forever. Recognizing that Gunter would have his best chance at finding the forever home in the north, he was transferred to MAGSR. Although we are still getting to know Gunter, it is clear that even with all of the suffering that he has endured, he is a friendly guy. Gunter seems to know that the past is behind him and he is more than ready to move forward. Gunter brings joy to everyone around him with his goofy antics. Although Gunter is clearly an amazing dog, he, like all other dogs, will meet with success when provided with structure and leadership. Training will help him further develop his confidence as well as bond with his new family.

Although Gunter is clearly an incredible guy, we have unfortunately learned that he is light heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if his caretakers had kept him on monthly heartworm preventatives. Gunter has begun his heartworm treatment and is doing well. The cost of Gunter's entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Gunter is definitely worth the cost. Please donate toward Gunter's treatment, your generosity will help us save him and other dogs with medical needs. Although Gunter 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 the right match for Gunter, please ask to meet him right away.

Updates:

Great news for Gunther! He is heartworm free!! Gunther has successfully completed his heartworm treatment and is ready to meet his forever family.

ADOPTED 12/03/2020!



Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 7 years 6 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 68 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No

Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: Unknown

DESCRIPTION:

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

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

Updates:

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

,

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

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

Gemma is going home!

Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Mix
Approximate Age: 4 years 7 months
Color: Black and Tan
Current Size: 61 lbs
Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

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

Gemma and her sister, Requi, lived with a family who got tired of having dogs so they left them outside leaving the dogs with limited resources. As if this wasn't hard enough, the family then decided to move away and abandoned the girls along with two other dogs on the property. Another rescue group heard about these traumatized pups and decided to try and intervene. That's when MAGSR got a call. As MAGSR has a policy of never leaving families behind, we brought all 4 dogs to safety. Fortunately, MAGSR was able to work with other rescues to find safe homes for the two additional dogs on the property.

Gemma is a lovely girl. In her previous home, she lived with kids and other dogs. It was reported that she greatly enjoyed the children in her home. Although Gemma has clearly suffered at the hands of her previous family, she has been friendly and interactive with the volunteers she has met. Our volunteers have been very impressed with her sweet and stable nature. Unfortunately, Gemma has tested heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if her previous family had kept her on monthly heartworm preventatives. Gemma is in the beginning stages of her heartworm treatment; however, the cost of her entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Gemma is definitely worth the cost.  Please donate toward her treatment, your generosity will help us save her and other dogs with medical needs.  Although Gemma will need to take it slow over the next few months, she will be back to full strength once her treatment is finished.

Gemma is looking for a home that will love and commit to her for a lifetime. Could that be with you?

HanHanHanHanHan
Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 4 years 6 months
Color: Black and Tan
Current Size: 72 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 82 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: No

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

Sweet Han was a stray to shelter. Looking at his current condition, it is evident that Han has endured a lot over his short life. When no one came to claim Han, MAGSR stepped up to help this guy find a home that will commit to him for a lifetime.

Although Han has been through a lot, his hardship and suffering are over. As a member of the MAGSR family, Han will receive the food, medical care, and comforts the he deserves. Han is a friendly guy even though he has clearly suffered. Once comfortable, he gives soft kisses and big tail wags to his people. An expert in the car, Han rides well and settles down nicely. He does appear to already have started some crate training and will likely pick up other household skills quickly. If you can provide Han with the comfort and leadership that this fantastic guy deserves, please ask to meet him today. 

Updates:

When Han arrived at MAGSR we quickly saw he was in bad shape. His neuter site had become infected and Han required emergency medical treatment which ended up being 3 days in the animal hospital. Poor Han’s scrotum had swollen to the size of a grapefruit and you could see the pain in his eyes. He developed a sarcoma with internal bleeding which required surgery to repair a blood vessel and remove his scrotum. We are happy to say he is feeling much better. Han has a long way to go as he is heartworm positive and severely underweight but MAGSR will ensure all of his health needs are addressed as well as lots of love and comfort.

,

Han's family loved him dearly. Unfortunately, they needed to return him to MAGSR. Although this was a very difficult decision, Han's family knew that this was in his best interest. We appreciate all that they did for Han while he lived with them.

 

Han is a lover and a quick learner. As a food and toy motivated guy, Han will be an excellent student when he attends training class. He takes vocal cues well and seems to want to please the handler. As Han is finishing out his last few weeks of crate rest due to his heartworm treatment, he is not yet able to play as much as he wants. However, that time is quickly approaching. Although Han is definitely a toy guy who will want play time once crate rest has ended, he also knows how to settle down with an elk horn or another tough toy. Living in a household with other dogs, Han seems curious about the other pups but hasn't yet had the opportunity to do full introductions. Slow, proper introductions are always encouraged as this lays the groundwork for a long term, stable relationship. We do know that Han has done well with dogs in previous households. Han is looking for a forever family that will provide him with structure, leadership, and plenty of toys. If he sounds like the right match for your household, please ask to meet him today!

DESCRIPTION:

Tucker's family loved him greatly but felt that they could not provide him with the life he deserved. As a result, they made the difficult decision to surrender Tucker to MAGSR. Tucker is an incredible guy. Confident, playful, and very responsive to the handler, it is highly evident that Tucker's family worked hard to help him develop into a good canine citizen. As a fun-loving guy, Tucker greatly enjoys his time playing with a ball or stuffed toys. He will keep you entertained with his antics. Having previously lived in a household, Tucker is housebroken, crate trained, and understands many of the rules of a household. However, as is true for any new dog, he will need to adjust the structure of a new household. Having previously attended training classes, Tucker knows a variety of commands. Although this is a fantastic start, Tucker will need to attend training with his new family as it will help him develop a bond. Tucker is patiently waiting for his forever family, could that be with you?

Tasha
TashaTashaTashaTashaTashaTashaTashaTashaTasha
Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 4 years 6 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 65 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

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

*Update* Tasha’s fosters are thrilled that this precious girl is heartworm free!  She is looking for a forever home where she can enjoy company most of the day with hugs and head-to-head snuggling.  She’s a low to moderate energy GSD and is gentle in all ways.  While she has not shown much interest in other dogs, her fosters continue to work on her socialization skills.   She enjoys walks that give her opportunities to sniff and stroll and is not affected at all by other passing dogs.   Training also continues as we all work together on basic commands.

Tasha is a survivor. After being horribly neglected, she was dumped at a vet with her two pups where the entire family was to be euthanized. Fortunately, another rescue learned of this little family's plight and was able to save them in time. Tasha's puppies were able to find families quickly. However, Tasha needed some additional care as her body had endured significant neglect. 

With the help of another rescue, Tasha was nursed back to health. She received the medical care and kindness that this beautiful girl so clearly deserved. Although Tasha has experienced cruelty at the hands of people, she remains loving and attentive. She enjoys the comforts of a soft bed and head rubs. Although we are still learning about this lovely girl, she amazes us with her sweet temperament. If Tasha sounds like the right match for your household, please ask to meet her today. 

Updates:

Tasha has made significant progress since her arrival at MAGSR. She is affectionate with her people and has learned to enjoy toys and treats. A big fan of snuggles, Tasha is more than happy to bury her head in your lap just to get some extra love. Although playful, Tasha is not a high energy dog. She enjoys play time and outings but is also content to hang out with her people. As is typical of most GSDs, once comfortable, Tasha will protect her household and property. Not all shepherds want to socialize with people outside of their immediate family. Although Tasha is a friendly girl and does well out and about, she may do best being put away when visitors come to the house. Training will go a long way with Tasha as it will teach her to look to the handler for direction and leadership. Tasha is looking for a family that will commit to her for a lifetime. If Tasha sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet her today.

,

Tasha is a sweet girl who immediately wanted to be with her new foster parents. When we are in different parts of the house, she often plops downs at the vantage point allowing her to keep tabs on both of us.  Of course she may just be afraid of missing a meal!  But “head cuddles” are very satisfying to both parties.  She is fine being crated at night as long as we leave a light on, but would probably be happier as close as possible to her people. Her walks throughout the day sometimes lets her meet new people—passing trucks and exuberant dogs, not so fun. 

Walking on a lead is coming along nicely. Tasha is also still learning what she needs to know to be a polite, safe member of the household. She is low energy now, but as she gets healthier I’m sure she will find the happier, more active Tasha inside. 

,

Tasha shows her sweet, gentle personality even in adversity, such as when she’s had a tough vet appointment.  She has been a lovely roommate, and is starting to sit before being invited outside or getting her food and she comes when she is called.   Tasha seems very happy to meet people, but due to heartworm restrictions on activities, we have not yet tried to socialize her with other dogs, cats, or babies.  Though the heart worm treatment has meant she is to stay calm and quiet, it seems fine with her. Tasha has finished her heartworm treatment and we are getting back into walks although, keeping them short and slow for now.  Tasha has not expressed any interest in toys, but she likes to keep track of her foster parents.  She is easy to walk on a leash, and seems ok to be crated at night, especially now that she knows our schedule and can count on us to let her out in the morning.  She’s a beautiful, darling girl.

In many ways Marley still has many puppy-like behaviors. Although Marley is good with kids, his playfulness and exuberance tends to cause him to knock them over. As a result, he will be best suited for a household without young children. Marley will excel with leadership and training. Training will not only help him develop into a good canine citizen but it will also help him bond with his new family. If Marley sounds like a good match for your household, please ask to meet him today.

Goofy with his new forever family

Gender: Male

Current Size: 65 lbs
Ideal/Potential Size: 80
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

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

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

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

Updates:

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

Updates:

Goose is making the the transition to living in a home quite nicely. She often retreats to her crate when scared and she sleeps all night in the crate without any problems. We're happy to report that we've not had any "accidents" but we do walk her frequently where she has been relieving herself outdoors. Goose craves attention and is gets along with our German Shepherd dog. Given her loving personality I feel certain that as she puts her horrible past behind her Goose will blossom and be an outstanding addition to any family. As for Goose's name, spend some time with her and you'll see why she was aptly named.

DESCRIPTION:

Samme was a beloved member of her family. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen changes, they could no longer take care of her. As a result, they made the difficult decision to surrender her to MAGSR.

Samme is a stunning girl and catches the attention of everyone around her. As it true of many owner surrenders, Samme was very scared when she first joined the MAGSR family. So many changes can be confusing and upsetting. However, with the help and support of her incredible foster family, Samme is slowly gaining confidence. Very dedicated to her people, Samme is good about protecting her house and will alert if there are odd sounds in the area. Samme enjoys toys but will need toys meant for strong dogs as she does think that tearing them apart is a good time. A big fan of car rides, Samme is excited to go on adventures and does settle nicely in the car. Although Samme arrived with some basic training started, continued training is a must so that Samme can develop a bond with her new family as well as further develop her overall confidence.

If Samme sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today.

DESCRIPTION:

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

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

Updates:

Grace is the definition of a sweetheart and is looking for a home to shower her with love, attention and patience as she gets used to life in a house. Grace shows a lot of puppy behaviors and is diligently working on her house breaking, learning not to jump on people or chew on inappropriate things. She is skittish around sudden movements and loud noises that are unfamiliar to her; her new parents will need to continue to work on these things with her. She is always on the lookout for a treat so guard your pockets, but she learns quickly when rewarded with them! She has no issue being in her crate and sleeps silently through the night.

Grace had a confident building weekend!! Grace initiated play with her foster brother Cane! This was huge as he's been trying to get her to play, they ran around the backyard but she came back to check in with her foster mom a few times. She went with her foster family to the park for a 2 mile walk and Grace was a champ. Her leash manners were great- she is very attentive to her handler. Grace would love to have a playmate in her new home. Grace is ready and just waiting for a family to shower her with love and training.

DESCRIPTION:

Daisy and her brother Stanley found themselves in a shelter when their mom unexpectedly passed away. Daisy is quite unsure of herself and all the changes she has faced. It takes a moment for this sweet girl to trust and bond but once she does trust you, the youthful bouncy puppy antics come out. She is extremely skittish with new people and needs a family that will go slow with her to build her trust and confidence while keeping her safe. If you are patient and consistent this girl will reward you ten-fold. 

Daisy has been in her foster home for almost a week and is settling in nicely. She is a quiet girl that just wants to be close to her people. She is crate trained and done well in the home. She doesn't seem to know what toys are but enjoys the occasional bully stick. Daisy loves taking daily walks and is learning about leash manners. If you think your family is able to provide her the love, patience, consistency, and training she needs to be the amazing dog we know is in there please apply today. 

Updates:

Beautiful Daisy has been with us for about five weeks. She has shown us she is a bouncy playful happy-go-lucky typical GSD once she is comfortable and trusts her people. As comfortable as she is with us, she lacks confidence and is extremely fearful when presented with new people and situations. Daisy will benefit from a patient family that provides consistency and structure, as well as, patience without feeling sorry for her. She is incredibly smart, and we are working on basic obedience. Daisy will flourish with training and this will strengthen a bond between her and her new family. Daisy knows sit, down and we are working on her heal. Daisy is housebroken and crate trained. A bonus for training is that Daisy is incredibly treat motivated.

Daisy’s fear has made it a challenge with dog introductions. She is not a fan of female dogs and has been fearful of the male dogs she has met. Daisy was not properly socialized in her first two years of life, so we are slowly working to overcome some of these fears. She had her first field trip to Tractor Supply and did surprisingly well even though we could see she was very uncomfortable. We are taking it slow with her but continuing to slowly push her outside her comfort level each day.

We have noticed that Daisy is more comfortable with women but with some persistence from her foster dad, Daisy is now happy to greet him with tails wags and kisses and has become quite playful with him. She does continue to submissive pee when he goes to leash her up.

Daisy would do best in a home with a fenced backyard as she is a bit stubborn about going potty on a leash. She enjoys romping around the backyard but has no idea what to do with toys. We did uncover that she absolutely loves a good bully stick.

If you think you have the patience to go slow to help Daisy overcome her fears and learn to trust she will reward you for years to come so please apply today!

DESCRIPTION:

Stanley and his sister Daisy found themselves in a shelter when their mom unexpectedly passed away. Stanley is an overall easy going guy; however, he needs a little time to adjust to new people as he has endured so many changes recently. Once comfortable, Stanley enjoys walks, treats, and the ever important butt rubs. 

Although it is hard to tell right now, Stanley is a long-haired shepherd. Unfortunately, he was so matted when he first arrived that he had to be shaved. His lovely long fur is beginning to grow back; however, It will be very important that his new family take the time to regularly brush Stanley, so that he doesn't find himself in this situation again. Having previously lived in a home, Stanley likely already understands many of the ins and outs of being a member of a family. Stanley is looking for a family that will provide him with the structure, guidance, and safety that he deserves. Could you be that family?

DESCRIPTION:

After a rough start to life and difficult circumstances in another state, Rusty found his way to MAGSR six years ago. This lucky guy found a loving home with all adults quickly, but due to circumstances beyond their control, his family made the extremely difficult decision to return him to MAGSR  as they knew that we would find the home and love he deserves. Rusty is an incredible guy. This big guy has energy and intelligence to spare. As a result, he will do best in a home that can exercise both his body and his mind daily. He knows several commands and with good leadership follows through nicely. A toy guy, Rusty enjoys playing with plush toys and can be found carrying them about the house. He’s not much of a ball guy; however if given the opportunity, he will catch the ball a couple times and run around with it. 

Rusty has learned to be a gentleman in the house; he understands what is not his and doesn't get on the furniture. He also doesn’t shed much! Already crate trained, Rusty finds comfort in his crate and can often be found sleeping in his crate at night.  While not a “Velcro” dog, Rusty can usually be found in a strategic location where he can keep track of his people. Not an enthusiastic licker, when you get a kiss or affection from Rusty, you know he thinks you’re really special. Rusty has lived with an indoor-only cat for six years. In that time he has learned to leave her alone the large majority of the time. He may do well with a dog-savvy cat. Rusty’s ideal forever home would include plush toys, good exercise, and an appreciation for his intelligence. If this soulful canine sounds like the dog for you, ask to meet him today.

SENIOR ALERT!!! Adopt a senior cat or dog aged 7 or older in November and Stella & Chewy’s will reimburse your adoption fee! Submit your adoption information to be eligible for the program.

As a shelter is no place for a momma and her pups, calls went out to various rescues to help this family find the safety and comfort of forever homes. As MAGSR has a policy of never leaving families behind, we stepped in and welcomed the entire family into our care until they all find the loving forever homes they so clearly deserve. 

In some ways Momma Bear is still a baby herself. She is very young and still has so much to learn about the comforts of living in a home with a family of her own. Although Momma Bear has done a wonderful job raising her pups, it is her turn to be cared for. Unfortunately, Momma Bear has tested heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if she had kept her on monthly heartworm preventatives. Momma Bear is in the beginning stages of her heartworm treatment; however, the cost of her entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Momma Bear is certainly worth the cost. Donations toward her treatment would be greatly appreciated as this would help us save her and other families with medical needs. Although Momma Bear will need to take it slow over the next few months, she will be back to full strength once her treatment is finished. 

While she works through her treatment, Momma Bear would be most comfortable in her forever home. If Momma Bear sounds like the right pup for your household, please ask to meet her today!

Updates:

Momma Bear is a sweet girl that is looking for someone to love and let her know she is going to be okay.  She craves attention but gets nervous, Momma Bear just wants to be with her human and please you.  She is crate trained, takes food so gentle from your hand and loves going on walks.  She gets so excited her whole body wiggles especially her tail - Ouch.   She loves to play and can be a little rough running around and jumping as she is still learning her manners.  She will be a loyal loving companion.

DESCRIPTION:

Buddy found himself scared, hurt, and alone in a shelter. Although he wasn't entirely sure how he got there, he needed to get out in order to receive the specialized care for an injury to his leg. Fortunately, the staff at the shelter also knew Buddy needed help and quickly. So, they put out a call that MAGSR answered. 

Buddy is a young, sweet but timid pup who endured trauma to his back left leg. Although no fractures are apparent, it appears that the joint is dislocated and unstable likely requiring a surgical repair. He is currently living with one of our vets so that he can get the care and attention he needs while he waits to see an orthopedic specialist. Although Buddy's care is expensive, he is clearly worth every penny. Please consider donating to Buddy's care as this will help us not only provide him with the medical support he needs but it will also help us bring other dogs with medical needs into the rescue. As we learn more about Buddy's needs we will post updates.

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Princess was picked up by animal control as a stray. Once safe, Princess waited patiently in a shelter for a family but no one came to get her. Fortunately, the staff at the shelter fell in love with this girl and did everything they could to help her find her way to MAGSR. Princess is a lovable girl. She is intelligent and very food motivated. It takes Princess a little time to adjust to a new environment. However, we all need a little time to adjust to changes. Once comfortable, Princess loves to be with her people. She is a big fan of a good head rub and some treats. Princess is new to the MAGSR family. As we get to know her better, we will post updates. If Princess sounds like the right match for your household, please ask to meet her today.

Updates:

Princess is doing really well. She's very affectionate. She's food driven. Princess crates well and hasn't been vocal. She has shown a playful nature with toys and loves any chews. She and the resident male GSD are politely ignoring each other. Princess helps with the house cleaning by finding anything dropped. Lots of energy and loves walks.
