DESCRIPTION:

Ginger and her siblings - Goofy, Grace, and Goose - 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, Ginger and her siblings are very loveable dogs. Definitely a little skittish, these dogs will excel with patience, leadership, and positive experiences. Ginger 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 Ginger over the next few weeks. If she sounds like a good match for your family, ask to meet her.

DESCRIPTION:

Chadwick was surrendered to a rescue when his family no longer wanted him. As Chadwick's family was not properly caring for him, this was likely his best option. Knowing that Chadwick deserved his best chance at a loving forever home, the rescue that saved him transferred him to MAGSR. 

Chadwick is a big, goofy buddle of energy and playfulness. He brings smiles to everyone he meets. Friendly with both dogs and people, Chadwick can't wait to find his forever home. Although Chadwick is still very young, he seems to have begun responding to a few commands. He is well behaved in his crate and appears to be housebroken. This snuggly guy loves a good ear rub and wouldn't mind crawling into your lap for extra attention. If this goofy and affectionate guy sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet him today!

Fluffy Benceti and his little family found themselves alone and in need on the streets of a big city. Fortunately, a good samaritan found the little family, and got them to safety. When no one came to claim this little family, MAGSR stepped in to help them all find safe and loving homes. 

Benceti is a playful and interactive guy. He is a big fan of cuddles. Although Benceti is a sweet guy, 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, Benceti will develop into the good canine citizen he is destined to become. If Benceti sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet him today.

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

Momma Bear and her babies, Ash, Autumn, Pumpkin, and Scarlet, were dumped at a shelter. 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.

Bonnie and her housemate Sophie were surrendered to a local shelter when the neighbors started complaining. Although both girls lived in the same household, they are not bonded. 

Bonnie is a beautiful, affectionate and driven dog. She is a big fan of the ball and will happily play fetch with her handler. Bonnie previously lived with four other dogs; however, she is currently requiring redirection when in the presence of other dogs. Our volunteers are working with her to teach her to take direction from the handler rather than try to control her environment. With consistency and an experienced handler, Bonnie will be the exceptional companion we know she is destined to become. As is true of all shepherds, Bonnie will benefit from training as it will not only help her bond with her new family but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. Bonnie is looking for a family that will commit to her for a lifetime. If she sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet Bonnie today.

As is typical of all puppies, Scarlet is cute, fun-loving, and playful. She brings wiggles and smiles wherever she goes.

Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Mix
Approximate Age: 1 year 9 months
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 60 lbs
Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No
Altered: Yes

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

Jonah had a home with kids, cats, and another dog until the older male dog decided he no longer wanted Jonah around. Out of the need to keep Jonah safe, his family put him outside and tethered him there. Recognizing that Jonah deserved more, they made the decision to surrender him to another rescue who worked with us to bring Jonah to MAGSR. 

Jonah is a friendly and playful guy. He loves attention and affection. As a young dog, Jonah gets excited about walks and can be jumpy while getting ready to go. However, once ready, he walks well on leash particularly when in a quieter setting. A little too interested in squirrels and bunnies, Jonah will need to learn to leave these little creatures alone when in the yard or out and about. Training will go a long way to help this handsome guy learn the ins and outs of being a good canine citizen. Jonah will do well in a household where he has the structure and leadership that will help him thrive. If Jonah sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet him today.

DESCRIPTION:

Raina was given to her family by a friend who felt she would be a good match for their household. Although she was clearly loved by her family, Raina struggled in a city environment. As a result, her family made the difficult decision to surrender Raina to MAGSR so that she could find the family and living environment that would help her develop into the incredible girl they knew she could be. Raina is a friendly but driven girl. As is typical of most shepherds, Raina is intelligent, active, and alert. In order to meet with success, Raina will need both her body and mind exercised daily. She is not a couch potato and will do best with an active family. Although Raina is working on her interactions with other dogs, she would prefer a family where she can be the only dog so that she can be the center of attention. Raina is housebroken and crate trained. She also knows a few commands. However, as is true of all shepherds, Raina will need to attend training in order to develop into the amazing shepherd we know she is destined to be. Training will not only help Raina develop into an amazing dog, but it will also help her bond with her new family. If this active lady sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet her today.

DESCRIPTION:

Remington found himself dumped in a shelter along with another family dog when the two, at the time unneutered dogs, got into a skirmish. Although surprised and a little unsure about this sudden change in circumstances, Remington won over the shelter staff with his friendly and social personality. A big fan of the lean-in, Remington loves attention and gives kisses in return. As a new member of the MAGSR family, we are still getting to know Remington. However, from what we have seen so far, this affectionate guy is simply looking for a forever home that will provide him with the love and leadership that all dogs require. If this social guy sounds like a good match for your household, please ask to meet him.

Updates:

Remington has had an amazing 1st week in his foster's home.  He is house broken, very friendly with people, easy to walk and overall a laid back dog. He loves to be around his humans, staying close and laying nearby giving you a sad look when he wants attention. This past week he was in a home with another dog, and they were best of friends.  He is very sweet, dedicated and loves to give kisses, his tongue going a mile a minute.

Hunter is a loving guy. He has lived with kids and other dogs. Although Hunter was clearly well loved by his family, he is a little confused by all the changes in his life and needs a little time to adjust.

DESCRIPTION:

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

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

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

Updates:

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

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

Shadow is gorgeous and affectionate. She seems to enjoy the company of her canine and human friends. It is clear that she has been well socialized and is very responsive to the handler.

Winnie is a beautiful girl who could use a little extra care. Underweight and clearly used for breeding, it is evident that Winnie has endured some hardship. However, she is ready to move forward with a family who will love her and provide her with the guidance and leadership that all shepherds crave. Winnie will do best with a household that will go slow and allow her to build confidence. As is true of all dogs, Winnie will also benefit from training as it will help her bond with her new family, as well as, become a good canine citizen.

Requi and her sister, Gemma, 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.

Requi is a sweet, young girl. She has been incredibly friendly with volunteers even though she has suffered so much in her short life. We have been impressed with her gentle nature and friendly disposition. Unfortunately, Requi has tested heartworm positive.

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

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Valentina found her way into a crowded shelter with significant puncture wounds to her neck and a fractured back leg. Based upon the size and type of wounds on her neck, it is thought that Valentines wounds were inflicted by another dog. When MAGSR got a call from another rescue asking if we could help this spirited little girl, we jumped into action. 

Valentina is seeing a combination of vets and orthopedic specialists to make sure that she gets the care she so clearly deserves. It is reported that even with all the pain she is in, Valentina is a sweetheart and brings everyone around her joy. Valentina already has a big personality that will keep her new family busy. Although Valentina is cute as can be, 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, Valentina will develop into the good canine citizen she is destined to become. If Valentina sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet her today.

Updates:

He's doing great with me. Noah has been doing obedience training with me and loves to play with my husky. He does fine in the crate but take a little time to relax before laying down and napping. Noah thinks couches are the best thing ever and loves to cuddle. He is very social and happy, all he wants in life is love and food. When Noah wags his tail his entire body moves with significant force. He's been eating his meals a little to fast so his new family may need to get a special bowl so he slows down. He loves squeaker toys and hard chew toys, he will chew on a few things if you don't watch him. My slippers fell prey to his desire to chew, but he dropped them quickly when told. Overall, he's an absolute sweetheart just needs a family to love him and teach him how to behave.

DESCRIPTION:

Claude's previous owners decided that they no longer wanted a dog in the house so they put him outside. Unfortunately, some of the neighbors were not happy about having a dog living outside in the neighborhood, as a result, they threatened to shoot Claude. Luckily, a good samaritan heard about Claude and raced to get him out of this situation before it was too late. 

When asked if we could help Claude find a forever home that would provide the love and safety he deserved, MAGSR stepped up. Everyone that meets Claude seems to fall in love with his friendly mannerisms. He is housebroken and is working on crate training. Living with both a cat and an energetic dog, Claude has been introduced to the resident cat and showed interest but nothing concerning. He loves playing with his foster brother. The two of them have quickly become buddies. Claude will thrive in a home where he is able to benefit from attention, good exercise, and of course a lot of cuddles. 

If Claude sounds like the right match for your home, please ask to meet him today. 

 

Updates:

Claude is house broken and does well with dogs of all sizes.  He is a big lover and will sit on your lap and demand to be petted, and if you stop, will remind you to keep going.  He has been introduced to his foster's cat on and off leash and while he did show interest in her he never snapped or hurt her.  He is good on walks but afraid of loud noises but comes to his person for protection.  He is very interested in squirrels and bunnies but is easily corrected when needed.  He is currently in a house with another big playful dog and does well, however, he could do well in a house without another dog with lots of attention.

DESCRIPTION:

Miles is a shepherd lab mix who was brought to MAGSR from a local shelter. While living in his foster home, it has been discovered that this 13 month old is full of puppy energy. Miles loves to go on walks and is learning leash manners in conjunction with basic obedience. Miles loves the water and plays in it any chance he gets. Crate trained, Miles is learning to understand many of the household rules. However,as is true of many 13 month olds, it is best that Miles be crated when his family is away. We feel that Miles can be stubborn and will need a strong handler to help teach him right from wrong and will benefit from a home that is active to help Miles relieve his high energy. Miles has not been socialized with other dogs and has not yet learned the correct way to meet a dog. However, he gets very excited to see people and can’t wait to say hi. Aside from water and walks, Miles enjoys playing with toys and throwing them around to entertain himself. While participating in activities around his foster home, Miles has shown a high degree of prey drive. As a result, we feel that he would be best suited for a home without small animals. If Miles sounds like a good match for your family, please ask to meet him today.

Updates:

Hi there..It's me, Allie. Since coming to MAGSR I have changed so much. When I first arrived, I was fearful of just about everything and just wanted to be in my crate. Now, I'm out and about and busy trying to convince the resident dogs to play with me. I love to play with balls but don't understand the concept of bringing one back yet. Although I am a work in progress when it comes to basic obedience, I know sit and down and I am working on my leash manners. When on a walk there's some much to see and smell that sometimes I get a little too excited and pull. The resident girl in the house is my favorite companion and I will do anything for her. While living with a wonderful foster family, I'm waiting  for my forever home. Is that with you? I'll see you soon!

DESCRIPTION:

Maggie was picked up by animal control and brought to a local shelter. Upon her arrival, it was very clear to the shelter staff that Maggie is a victim of cruelty and neglect. Maggie was extremely emaciated. Her body was covered in scabs, sores, and wounds. She was weak from lack of food and needed encouragement to get up and move. Although the shelter searched for her abusers, no one was identified. Recognizing that Maggie needed help, the shelter worked to find a safe place for Maggie to rest and recuperate.

Fortunately, Maggie has found safety in the MAGSR family. Despite all that Maggie has endured, she is a loving and affectionate dog. Once given the opportunity to warm up to new people, Maggie is all about leaning in for head rubs and giving little kisses. As Maggie has begun eating more regularly and is receiving the medical care she needs, her foster family is beginning to see her personality shine. True to the breed, Maggie is loyal and wants to be with her people. This also gives her the chance to get a few extra head rubs throughout the day. Maggie has clearly lived in a house prior to her arrival at MAGSR. She is housebroken and has some general household manners. At this time, it doesn't appear that Maggie knows any commands. As she is still recovering, her foster family has decided to slowly introduce Maggie to the children and animals in the home. However, Maggie seems to thrive in a calm environment.

All Maggie needs now is a loving forever home that will love and protect her through her gold years. If Maggie sounds like a good match for your household, please ask to meet her today.

If you'd like to help MAGSR care for Maggie, contribute here.

Updates:

Maggie has had an eventful week at MAGSR. As regular grooming and bathing has been key to her recovery, Maggie has had daily brushing sessions over the last week to help remove the extra fur and mats found all over her body. As is evident from the picture, these sessions tend to produce piles of fur. Although Maggie wasn't so sure about these brushing sessions at first, she has begun to sit down or lay down throughout each session. This has been a slow and steady process; however, it seems that Maggie now understands that the brush brings comfort and relief. In addition to brushing sessions, Maggie is also getting bathed every two to three days with a medicated shampoo. Although she still isn't thrilled about the water, Maggie relaxes while being massaged with the shampoo and absolutely loves having her head dried with the towel. After bathing and grooming sessions, Maggie tends to find a comfortable spot and sleeps. Spa sessions sure are tiring. 

This week Maggie has started eating more regularly; this has dramatically increased her energy. Although she still waits for a special Stella and Chews dinner pattie before eating her food, Maggie is more enthusiastic about meal times. Perhaps she has learned to be a little spoiled. Who could resist spoiling such a sweet soul? With increased energy has come a desire for greater attention, a curiosity to explore new places in the house, and a greater interest in walks. Maggie loves being outside and would happily spend hours hanging with her people sniffing the flowers and lounging in the grass. 

As Maggie still has a long road to recovery, please consider donating toward her care. MAGSR remains committed to providing Maggie with the care and comfort she deserves, but we could use your support along the road. Continue to look for updates on Maggie's journey as she makes her way toward a forever home. 

,

Unfortunately, our lovely Maggie began showing signs of distress this week. MAGSR got her into the vet only to discover that Maggie had been hiding what appears to be significant heart issues in her lovely but battered body. The incredible staff at the vet's office are working diligently to gain as much information as possible in order to make decisions that will provide Maggie with comfort and relief. As she waits for a final test to determine next steps, Maggie is back home with her foster family resting. Although she is less energetic than we had seen over the last few weeks, Maggie continues to follow her foster mom around the house as often as she can. She is getting extra head rubs and always has the company of her foster family both fluffy and human. Maggie will be continuously monitored over the next few days to make sure that she is safe and comfortable. Please keep this special lady in your thoughts.

Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 5 years 1 month
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 95lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No

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

Tango was surrendered as his family could no longer provide him with the life he deserves.  He is a very handsome, good natured, friendly boy.  He loves other dogs both big and small, he just wants to be everyone's friend. He adores children - very gentle and just snuggles in.  He has had no issues meeting new people both women and men, big or small.  He does great riding in the vehicle.  He has not been around cats, so we have no idea how he is with them.  He enjoys playing in water, be it from a hose, pool or body of water.  

Updates:

Tango is doing very well in his foster home. His foster reported that he was painful in his hind end, and so Tango is currently on a medical hold until he can be evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon. Check back on Tango's profile for more information on his status as information comes available.

,

Tango had his orthopedic consult and while he does have hip dysplasia, surgery is not recommended at this time.  He has loss of muscle in his hind end, and the surgeon feels his muscles can be built back up with various exercises, and this will greatly help his mobility and quality of life in the future.  He also needs to lose another 15 lbs, to come in around ~80 lbs, so on the leaner side, as all GSDs should be.  If you are interested in Tango, please ask to meet him!

,

Since Tango’s appointment with the surgeon, where he was diagnosed with muscle loss in his back end (along with hip dysplasia – not requiring surgery), he has been on a diet along with increased levels of exercise.  Tango is continuing to build his muscles, especially in his back end (you can see muscle patterns developing) and he is getting stronger every day.  As he gets stronger his obedience training is a necessity and it is something we work on daily and he is doing great.  He wants to please and do the right thing and he gets a sad face if he needs to learn the lesson again.  Tango has been a great companion. He loves to take walks, lay at my feet when resting, and he loves to talk to me even gets a little sassy at times, he is very social, in fact he is one of the most vocal dogs I have ever been associated with.  The foster home had another shepherd in the home for several weeks and the two dogs romped, ran and played hard daily – Tango experienced no muscle issues during this time.  Tango went to the dog park and to the dog beach and loved playing with all the other dogs at both places – see pictures.  He hopes to do that again, soon.  He loves water, if you have a hose he wants to play in it and at the beach he splashed and ran in the waves and of course he thoroughly loved his shower time at the end.  Tango is very food motivated. He will do just about anything if there is a snack/meal attached to it. Tango is very handsome and is told so often.  He is just an all-around great dog!  If you have any interest, ask to meet him and stop by to play and check him out.
