Chip
ChipIt's Santa Chip!ChipChipChipChipChip
DESCRIPTION:

Meet Chip! Chip is an older gentleman who found himself on hard times after his former family fell ill and could no longer provide for him. He was surrendered to a local shelter. Luckily, for all involved, we were able to provide a caring home in his hour of need. He is now resting comfortably in the home of a very loving and compassionate care giver. Because of his advanced age, Chip is very arthritic, a little unstable on his feet and requires joint medication. A home with no steps is a must and limited non-slip floors are preferred. Currently, we are trying to take a little excess weight off of him. However, even with limited mobility, he manages to get around. Chip loves going for car rides and bonds very quickly to his favorite people. He is very charming and wants nothing more than to be loved and spend quiet time with his favorite people.

Midnight
MidnightMidnightMidnightMidnightMidnightMidnightMidnightMidnightMidnightMidnightMidnight
DESCRIPTION:

Midnight cannot be any cuter and is absolutely a great little girl, happy go lucky and loves to give puppy kisses.  Midnight has a lot to learn about going a good canine citizen and will require training.  Please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family - puppies are a ten to twelve year commitment.  Puppies are full of energy and can be mischievous – they will whine, have accidents, get into things, and chew on inappropriate things.  With time, patience, guidance and training, Midnight will become even more of an amazing girl than she already is.  Please inquire if Midnight sounds like a good match for your family.

Updates:
  • Midnight was attacked by a medium sized dog prior to her arrival in our care.  She sustained bite wounds to her face and mouth which were sutured.  Upon arrival to our care she was seen by our vet who referred her to a dental specialist.  Midnight was examined 3/6/18 by the dental specialist and it is found that her upper palate is fractured but is healing well and will continue to heal on its own.  Three of her baby teeth were damaged and had to be extracted.  X-rays did reveal that her adult teeth buds are present, but until they erupt it is unknown if they have sustained any damage.  If they have they may need to be removed.  If they do not erupt they may be absorbed or they may need to be removed.  Midnight also has a small puncture in her nasal cavity which is causing a snorting sound when she breathes, but it in no way is impeding her breathing and she has very good airflow.  She may or may not have the snorting sound for life.  The specialist stated she is a young, happy, growing puppy which is beneficial to her healing. 

  • Midnight is doing great in her foster home and has recovered from her dental surgery to remove the puppy teeth damaged by the dog bite. She is making progress on potty training.  Midnight is not shy at all and takes any new experience in stride.  Midnight corrects easily, is super playful and gets into everything, as all puppies do.  She loves the resident cats and wants to play with them and adores the resident dogs.  Midnight is an awesome girl.  Ask to meet her today.

DESCRIPTION:

Abigail was surrendered as her elderly family could not manage the energy of a young dog.  Abigail is so very sweet and pretty.  She does have a lot of puppy energy that will need to be directed by providing her with exercise, playtime, long walks and of course training.  A young energetic dog takes a lot of patience and time.  Please be sure you have the time and are ready to make a commitment to Abigail for her lifetime.

FritzFritzFritzFritzFritzFritz
DESCRIPTION:

Fritz found himself in a shelter for reasons unknown.  He is now safely in our care waiting patiently to find his forever family.  He is a calmer boy with a friendly disposition.  He does have some good manners but will require formal obedience training so that he can be the best he can be.  Training is so very important, not just for the dog but also for their families.

Updates:
  • Fritz is like a loveable, huggable teddy bear.  He's great on walks, especially with other dogs.  Fritz loves to hang around where his humans are.  He likes his crates and loves to go outside - when his humans head for the door, Fritz runs to the door and gets excited.  Fritz can be a little stubborn sometimes, but is still a very good boy. Fritz loves attention, and he's a very calm, laid back dog. If Fritz sounds like a good fit for your family, ask to meet him soon.

DESCRIPTION:

Josie along with her sister were surrendered to us as their human dad is in hospice care.  He loves his girls very much and wants them to have a wonderful life.  Josie is understandably quite confused with the recent changes, but will adjust with time.  Josie was examined by our vet and found to be what he believes may be cataracts.  She will be seen by an eye specialists and receive proper care.  Please consider Josie, a family of her own will certainly help her move forward and settle in.

Updates:
  • Josie had surgery for her cataracts and is doing fantastic post-op.  She had her first followup appointment and her pressures and eye function is looking great.  Josie is learning to navigate better and her anxiety level has lessened now that she can see.  Josie does well in a crate and is getting along great with the resident female dog and could care less about the resident rabbit.  If Josie sounds like a good fit for your family, please ask to meet her.

Kimba was surrendered to us as her previous family stated she had too much energy and shed too much.  She lived in her previous home with smaller dogs and did well.  She has not been around children or cats so we do not know if she is good with them.  She is a friendly girl and oh so beautiful.  She will need a family that is willing to exercise and play with her, this will help her burn some energy.  Of course training is necessary.

Sadie
SadieSadieSadieSadieSadieSadieSadie
DESCRIPTION:

Sadly Sadie recently lost her human dad as he unexpectedly passed away and her human mom is disabled and hospitalized.  As you can imagine Sadie is quite confused as to why she is not with her family, in a strange place with people she does know.  We are giving her time to settle in and adjust to her new surroundings.  She has been skittish with us but once she is comfortable with our volunteers she comes out of her shell and enjoys romping around.  Sadie would do best in a home that is not very busy as she is somewhat of a flight risk as she continues to look for her family.  With time and patience she will overcome this and become bonded to her new family.  
 

Updates:
  • Sadie is doing very nicely in her foster home and is fully acclimated to her humans and resident foster dogs with no issues.  Sadie loves her foster fur-siblings.  She goes biking with them, plays off-leash in the yard with them, and settles nicely with them in the home.  Overall, once she is comfortable in her surroundings she is a big puppy – very sweet and very animated and excitable.  Sadie is shy and cautious around new people, so her foster parents are working on that with her and helping her lose weight as well.  If this sweet girl sounds like she could be good fit for your family, ask to meet her today.

Chief
ChiefChiefChiefChiefChiefChief
DESCRIPTION:

Meet Chief! He's a young, exuberant boy. He was surrendered to a shelter when his family reported they could not handle him. However, he has had very minimal training. This is a perfect example of why training is so important.  His former family stated he was good with children and cats, but we have not yet tested him with either.

While he is still very new to us, we will provide updates as we learn more about him. As of now, though he is still somewhat bewildered about what has happened, we are happy to report that he is doing well
and is warming to us while we get to know each other. Stay tuned!

Harmony

ADOPTED 03/03/2018!

Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Age at adoption: 3 years old

Harmony
HarmonyHarmonyHarmonyHarmonyHarmonyHarmonyHarmonyHarmonyHarmonyHarmonyHarmonyHarmonyHarmonyHarmonyHarmonyHarmonyHarmonyHarmonyHarmonyHarmonyHarmony
DESCRIPTION:

Harmony was found as a stray and ended up in a shelter.  She is missing a rear paw which appears to be from an old injury.  This does not slow her down, she can run and play as well as any 4 pawed dog.  She is friendly and very much enjoys a good belly rub.  Harmony will need training to help her overcome her dislike of vacuums, hairdryers, etc.  This can be easily dealt with by putting her away when these items are in use and of course ongoing training.  Harmony will make a loving companion for a very lucky family.

Updates:
  • Sweet Miss Harmony is a friendly little cuddle bug. 

    ​T​hough she is small, she is mighty… Cute. If you're looking for a dog to guard your home, keep looking. Harmony greets everyone she sees with her belly exposed ready for rubs and snuggles.

    She is doing well in her foster home. She enjoys attention from children and is getting along with the resident dog. She established boundaries with him letting him know that she doesn't like to roughhouse. Harmony would happily live with another dog but she would be just as happy to be an only dog. She is looking for somewhere that she can be spoiled rotten.

    Harmony would not do well in a home with cats. She has a strong prey drive and cats are just way too much fun. She also likes chasing animals when she is outside. Even though she small she can create a significant impact at the end of her leash when she sees a squirrel. So it's important to always be on the lookout and have a good grasp on her leash.

  • Harmony is learning to respond to her name. She does not come when she's called yet. However once you have her attention she has learned how to sit. She also understands to come and drop it but she does not consistently follow it, yet. Harmony is doing very well with housebreaking her last  accident was at the door where we leave to go for walks. So she has figured it out.

    Harmony does not mind being crated during the day while the family is at work/school. She even goes in her crate from time to time when people are home to relax. She would prefer to go to a home where somebody lets her sleep on a dog bed on the floor in their room.

    Harmony is missing a hind paw for reasons that are unknown to us. However, she has no trouble walking, running, climbing steps, navigating tree branches etc. on a walk. In fact, we're pretty sure Harmony doesn't know her paw is missing. So please don't tell her when you meet her.

KaylaKaylaKaylaKaylaKaylaKaylaKayla
DESCRIPTION:

Kayla is approximately 10 months old.  She came from a horrific hoarding situation.  A large number of dogs that had no medical care, lack of human contact and socialization, filthy living environments, etc.  Kayla is quite skittish at this time, she will need a person who will help bring her out of her shell.  She needs socialization, to be introduced to the world around her, proper care and direction from her family.  She deserves the chance to know that not all people are bad, that she is safe and much loved.  A quieter, less active home would be best for her, with someone who has the patience to help her move forward.  A home with a lot of people coming and going, especially young children would not be in her best interest.  It is not that Kayla is not good with children, but she is a possible flight risk due to her skittishness.  A door inadvertently left open could prove dangerous for Kayla.  In the short time she has been in our care she has started to come out of her shell, interested in new things and seeking out attention.  It is imperative that the family adopting Kayla is certain it will be for her lifetime, please be sure you can make that commitment.

GemaGemaGemaGemaGemaGemaGemaGemaGemaGema
DESCRIPTION:

Gema came to us from a shelter, where she had been adopted from but then returned.  She was in a open feed situation with a number of other dogs in the home and Gema could not handle being fed that way with other dogs.  To take a dog and put them with dogs who were raised with open feeding and expect them to just fit in at feeding time is most times not going work.  One big bowl of food for all of the dogs and you can only imagine how this could not work.  Gema is a friendly girl and does enjoy the company of other dogs, but she will require to be fed separately.  Training and guidance will go a long way for Gema,  helping her learn to be well balanced and the best she can be.

BoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBoBo
DESCRIPTION:

Bo came to us from a shelter, so we have no history on him.  He can be picky about his dog friends and may do best as an only dog or with female dogs.  Training of course will go a long way helping Bo settle in, learn some manners and how to properly interact with other dogs.  With people he is very friendly, although we do not know how he is with children at this time. 

Updates:
  • Bo is great dog, and he's doing nicely in foster.  His weight is up to 84lbs from 69lbs a month ago, and he loves to run and is building muscle - he is really looking good.  He has been going to training for a few weeks and is doing very well the class, both with his basic commands and in terms of his confidence and socialization.  He does fine in his crate (although he will start to make a racket sometimes if he feels he's missing out on something!), is house broken, and has acclimated well, and is happy and comfortable with his two older GSD foster siblings.  Bo still has a lot to learn, but overall he's a very sweet and responsive dog, that is progressing well and will make a great addition to the right lucky home, that is ready to provide the care and love that Bo so richly deserves.

BlitzBlitzBlitzBlitzBlitzBlitzBlitzBlitzBlitzBlitz
DESCRIPTION:

Blitz was found dumped on the side of the road, very scared and confused.  This sweet boy is deaf and was alone it was no wonder he was scared.  Don't let the idea of a deaf dog scare you from adopting him, they can be easily trained with the use of a vibration collar and hand signals.  Blitz didn't deserve to tossed away like trash, he is a sweet and loving puppy who will make a wonderful family member.  He is currently in a foster home getting use to his new surroundings and of course living the good life he so deserves.  Please open your heart and home to him, he will be forever grateful.

Updates:
  • Blitz loves to play, when he’s not running around with one of my dogs he is following me around being jovial. He is housebroken, he makes it through the entire night. He has not had one accident since he has gotten here.He’s great on the leash, he doesn't pull but walks beside you. He loves to chew on bones and is really good at figuring out what’s his and what isn’t.He is also a big teddy bear, he loves to snuggle and give Eskimo kisses.

  • Blitz just loves toys and balls - he sorts through the toy box to find just the right one to play with each time.  Blitz is very friendly and social and is happy playing with his foster fur-sibling and doesn't mind being in the crate either. If Blitz sounds like a good fit for you, ask to meet him today.

Berl
BerlBerlBerlBerlBerlBerlBerlBerlBerl
DESCRIPTION:

Berlioz (Berl) came to us from a shelter where he was taken after his family  moved.  In his previous home he lived with children and another dog.  Berl has a lot of energy, nothing that a good run, playtime or a long walk won't help.  He does need training as it is obvious his previous family did not spend any time teaching good manners.  He is very friendly with everyone he meets, quite the love bug. 

Updates:
  • Berl is only a couple days in with his fosters and is acclimating well.  They are working on housebreaking with him and he's getting along very nicely with the resident female dog - they play a lot.  Berl has endless energy and love to bury his head into his human when he's getting some affection.  One thing about Berl, that we won't tell him, is that he snores some .. it'll be our secret.  If Berl, the energetic, playful and affectionate boy, sounds like a good fit for you, please ask to meet him today.

  • Berl has made much success in the housebreaking area after his first 24 hours in the house - he's a smart boy and quick learner.  Berl met the resident grandchildren this week and he loved them as much as they loved him. Berl is crate trained and enjoys taking breaks in his crate.  Berl knows his place with the resident female GSD and has accepted it - has also adapted very well to her level of play - where you find one of them, the other isn't too far away.  The latest information from the foster is that Berl is very respectful but just had to crawl up to his foster parents and cuddle with them in bed - which he's also pretty awesome at.  Berl is one awesome character and special boy.  Ask to meet him today.

DESCRIPTION:

Romeo ended up in a shelter with Juliet, we are not sure if they are related but it does seem as though they have lived their lives together as they are bonded.  Romeo and Juliet play nicely together and seem to enjoy each others company. 

Updates:
  • Both Romeo & Juliet are putting on weight nicely and they love doggie snacks.  Both are learning manners at meal time, to sit while the food is being placed and to not to eat out of each others bowls when they are done.   Romeo & Juliet are housebroken and crate trained and have great manners in the home.  They enjoy quiet times and taking naps and they do not bother each other when they go into their open crates to rest.  Romeo and Juliet want to please their human so much and respond quickly to voice commands and praise.  They know basic commands; sit, stay, no, come, good boy/girl.  Playing together is especially fun for them and for their foster humans to watch - they love to romp and roll each other, both are extremely playful with a good energy level.  They both are extremely loving and need their snuggle/tummy rub time.  When they are tired they just want to lay at your feet and nap.  If this sounds like the right bonded pair for you, please ask to meet them today.

Piper 07-19-18PiperPiper 07-19-18 2BristolBristolBristolBristolBristolBristolBristolBristolBristolPiper
DESCRIPTION:

Bristol was not well cared for by her previous person.  She often went without being fed, allowed to run at large putting her in danger of being hit by cars.  She has had no training and no guidance.  Regardless of her lack of her care and guidance she is a sweet, friendly young girl.  She enjoys the company of and playing with other dogs and she is good with children.  Of course she will require formal training, it not only teaches her how to be a well behaved and balanced girl, but it also helps with creating a bond with her new family.  Please be sure you have the time and patience to commit to Bristol for the rest of her life.

Updates:
  • Unfortunately Piper was returned to us after almost 5 months after showing too much interest in the resident cats. Piper is understandably confused why her family gave her up. Her foster reports that she doesn't appear to have had much training. Piper is now in a foster home where she'll wait for the right family and learn what she can learn during that time, along with playing with the resident dog. If you can commit to Piper for her lifetime, please ask to meet her.

  • Hi.  My new name is Piper – I have had a few names in my short life but this one has stuck.  I answer really well to my new name.

    As you can see I am back with the great people of MASGR.  My foster mom says I am all the best things found in a puppy and GSD.  BUT, if those are not what you are looking for, I am not the best fit for you. I am super smart, cute and loyal.  Also I am a puppy and I have a lot of energy and love to play …. all day.  Remember I am a working bread and need to have exercise and mental stimulation to keep me, and you ultimately, happy and healthy.  Please be committed to meeting my activity and mental stimulation needs.  My foster mom says I would be best with a furry brother or sister who I can play with and in an active family. I love kids! But obviously I am a pretty big dog and a puppy – so would be best with children comfortable with big dogs.  I love all people, dogs, toys and belly rubs! Overall, I am a naturally very well behaved dog. Though I do need some additional training - have started learning basic commands, but am not yet consistent. I do need additional training for walking on a lead. I am great about being house trained – but since I play a lot and drink a lot - thus need to get out to do my business. I am an amazing dog and have had a lot of change in my short life – but there are no obvious negative impacts – I have taken it all in stride.  But I deserve a wonderful forever family – one where we are both together a great fit - me for you, and you for me.  If you think you are that family – ask to meet me.  It’ll be hard for you to not fall in love…..

DESCRIPTION:

Karmela did have a home and family of her own until one day they dumped her a shelter.  We know that in her previous home she lived with children and other dogs.  She is a calm, well mannered girl who would enjoy spending time with her family.  Karmela had an ear infection that was left untreated which caused her ear to crumple, she is currently under the care of our vet.  If you are looking for a dog that is more grounded and past the juvenile antics Karmela is your girl.

Updates:
  • Karmela is settling in to her foster home just great!  She made herself right at home with her foster family and the resident dog. Karmela went to the vet for a check up and to have her ears checked. Both ears had infections so they cleaned them out really good and sent her home with medications to help get them all better.  Karmela is extremely sweet and a great listener. She knows some basic commands like “sit” and “come” and we are working very hard on other commands as well. She walks very nicely on a leash and loves to play fetch. She is crate trained, house broken and loves kids.  Ask to meet Karmela today!

  • I’m doing great at my fosters house. They’re teaching me how to be a good dog for my new family. I have learned sit, come, down and I’m working on stay. I love going on walks with them and their dog. I absolutely love kids! I love them more the adults and would love a family with kids. I love playing with tennis balls and I’m really good at playing fetch. I also love to just chill with you on the couch and cuddle. Ask to meet me today!

  • Karmela went back to the vet this week for a followup on her ears and they are doing great! She is doing great with learning her basics commands. She loves to play fetch and to just chill on the couch or floor. She is amazing with kids and good with other dogs. She is very sweet and gentle. Ask to meet this sweet girl today!

DESCRIPTION:

Misty was surrendered as she was not getting along with the small dogs in the home.  She has also never been around children so we do not know how she would be with little ones.  She is all puppy, chewing things she shouldn't (dog beds are her favorite thing to chew), still needs to learn obedience and  manners, has potty accidents, needs out in the middle of the night and oh that energy...what fun.  A good training program, along with guidance and structure will help her become a well behaved girl.  Please be sure you are in the position to commit to her for her lifetime.

Brio is home!
Brio-F2Brio-F2BrioBrioBrioBrioBrioBrioBrioBrioBrioBrioBrioBrioBrio
DESCRIPTION:

Brio came to us from a shelter.  There is some confusion with regards to his age, his records have him as 2 years old, but many feel he is much younger.  He still has many puppy mannerisms and looks like a puppy still.  He has a lot of energy that will need to be dealt with by providing plenty of exercise and playtime.  At this time he has no manners but this is something he is working on.  He has no leash skills and jumps up on people to greet them.  He is a friendly, goofy, happy go lucky boy.  Training will go along way in helping him learn all that he needs to knows.

Updates:
  •  

    Brio has adjusted marvelously to his new foster home. He has been consistently going to the bathroom outside and is learning to go to the door to go out. He plays well with the resident dog. The resident children love Brio and he is very gentle with the 8 year old, frequently rolling over for belly rubs and playing tug of war. Brio is energetic and requires a lot of physical activity. When he is kept busy he rarely jumps and after a little while walking on a leash will walk right by your side. Brio loves to play fetch and even brings the ball back. He sleeps in his crate at night without whining or barking. He sometimes barks while in the crate during the day because he wants to join in the activities in the house. If you are looking for a dog to play with and be active with Brio is your ideal dog. Ask to meet Brio today.

Nikia
NikiaNikiaNikiaNikiaNikia
DESCRIPTION:

Nikia was found as a stray and ended up in a shelter.  She is a beautiful, well behaved older girl, past the antics of a younger dog.  She would be happy hanging with her family, going for strolls and being loved.

Updates:
  • Nikia is settling in great to her foster home.  Her foster parents report that Nikia is a delighful dog. She loves to ride in the car and just look out the window. She walks beautifully on a leash with minimal correction ("back") to keep her from walking out front and pulling. Nikia doesn't lunge or bark at people, other dogs, or anything else - just perks her ears up and shows interest but stays quietly by handler's side. Nikia is calm around small children - she perks perked up her ears and sits nicely to watch.  Nikia loves tennis balls and tends to hoard them, so attention to taking those away when not supervised is necessary.  Nikia likes bully sticks too.  Nikia will only play with a toy if it is specifically given to her for play.  Nikia stays off the furniture unless given permission.  Nikia follows her humans around the house.  If Nikia sounds like a good fit for your family, ask to meet her today.

  • Nikia's playful nature is coming out now that she is getting more secure in her environment. She loves to ride in the car and go for walks and loves to play.

    She knows some basic obedience commands and is quite food motivated.

    Crate trained. Goes right into the crate to eat and when she wants some down time. She waits patiently by the front door and pants or softly whines when she needs to go out to relieve herself.

    She comes when called when she is off leash. She is very social and friendly but never jumps up on people. When she is really excited she does these little leaps in the air but not onto anyone or anything, just leaps a little bit in her own space.

    She is very teachable. Has already learned "back" when I want her to get behind me so I can go out the door first.

DESCRIPTION:

Ozzie's former person took ill and was no longer able to care for  him.  He was brought to the VA area by a family member and is now in our care looking for his forever family.  Ozzie is a very big boy at 94 lbs  He has undergone formal training but will require further training with his new family.  He has not lived with dogs before but did well meeting another German Shepherd during our evaluation.  Ozzie does have the tendency to herd (nip at) children, for this reason we feel it is best that he not be placed in a home with young children.  A boy of this size can be intimating to small children and he could also accidentally knock them down.  For the most past Ozzie's former person exercised Ozzie on daily 2 mile walks and lots of games of fetch.  Daily exercise is key to  keep energy in check, so please be sure you have the time to commit to his exercise needs, training and of course a lifetime of love and care.

Arko was surrendered as his person has a disability that kept  her from providing him with proper exercise.  He is a high energy boy who loves to play fetch and requires daily exercise to  keep his energy in check.  He is a friendly boy that enjoys spending time with his family and he is good with other dogs.  He has had some training, but will require further training with his new family.  When he gets overly excited he can become mouthy, not applying pressure or biting, but for this reason we feel it's best he not be in a home with a younger children.

DESCRIPTION:

Hank came to us from a shelter where he was ended up for going after chickens and goats, so a home without livestock is best for Hank. He is a friendly boy and good with children.  He also gets along well with other dogs.  Hank is in a foster home enjoying a warm comfy bed, exercise and of course lots of love and care. 

Updates:
  • Hank is a wonderful dog and very friendly and laid back.  Sadly, sweet Hank tested heartworm positive when seen by a MAGSR vet.  He obviously was not kept on monthly Heartworm Preventatives which would have protected him.  MAGSR will make sure Hank gets the treatment he needs to rid his body of Heartworms so that he may enjoy many more years of life.  Treatment is expensive but Hank is certainly worth the cost.  Donations towards his treatment would be greatly appreciated – this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs.

Bella's owners could not care for her appropriately and she spent most of her young life in a crate but all that has changed now that she is in the rescue living with a foster.  She is a puppy in every sense of the way in that she has boundless energy and is very inquisitive.  She loves to cuddle, give puppy kisses, and play with squeaky toys.   She will need work on her leash manners but she corrects easily and wants to please.  She is very much a lap dog and just wants to be close to her people at all times.  Bella gets along with dogs and kids and is just the happiest girl when given love and attention. She enjoys car rides so long as she can look out the window : )  Bella is ready find her forever home, could that be you?
