Annika and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

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. 

Update:

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.

History: Other Rescue

Good With Kids: Unknown

Brandi and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

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. 

Update:

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!

Farrah and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

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?

Jackie and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Jackie and her family - Axel, Gypsie, Genie, Sally, and Birdie - are victims of cruelty and neglect. All six dogs were living in horrific conditions. Chained in shower stalls, living in filth, abused, and starved, they endured unimaginable suffering at the hands of their owner. When word of their situation spread to local authorities, all 6 dogs were confiscated and charges were brought against their owner. Recognizing that these dogs would need significant support, a plea went out to see if they could be moved to the safety of a rescue. MAGSR answered that plea and immediately began working with local groups and animal services to get all six dogs the resources needed (medically and socially) to begin to move forward.  

In many ways Jackie is still a puppy. At only seven months, she has spent her puppyhood tied out and neglected. As a result, Jackie has not had the chance to be a puppy and will need this opportunity as she moves forward. Unsurprisingly, Jackie needs a little time to adjust to new people and new situations. With time, leadership, and patience, Jackie does start to warm up to her handler. As we continue to work with Jackie, we will begin to teach her that people can be kind, affectionate, and a source of love. At this time, Jackie is looking for an active and experienced household that will provide her with the structure, routine, and leadership that all shepherds need. Coming from a situation with little opportunity for affection or interaction with the world around her, Jackie will need opportunities to learn about the world in controlled settings. As is true of all young dogs, Jackie will need daily exercise for both her mind and her body. This will help her develop the ability to handle new people and environments confidently. Continued socialization is also critical for Jackie as this will help her develop into a stable adult. Providing Jackie with opportunities to interact with other people and other animals in a safe manner will help her develop essential skills that she has missed prior to her arrival in our care. Training will be an essential piece of this process, as it will not only help Jackie learn to develop a strong, healthy bond with her family, but it will also help her develop the skills needed to be a good canine citizen. Jackie is looking for an experienced, patient, and confident family that will help her develop into a balanced and loving dog. Could that be with you?

The GA 6 have been an expensive rescue, but so worth it.  If you can help us donating to the cost of their care, it you be very much appreciated!

Lacy and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Lacy was surrendered to us due to a baby on the way and there would be no room for Lacy. It is obvious she was not well cared for as she came to us obese, weighing 107 lbs. and should only weigh around 70 lbs.  She also came to us with a skin infection and some fur loss, which our vet feels is caused by lack of care and poor quality food.  She is being treated for the skin infection, put on a diet, good quality food, along with exercise that she obviously did not get in her last home.  She is settling into her foster home and dealing with the changes of her new life.  She is confused with some whining, but that is expected with the changes.  She is very sweet and friendly with everyone she has met. 

Update:

Hi everyone, meet Lacy! Lacy is super sweet with humans and children.  She is almost six years old, knows some basic commands, and loves to fetch!  She also likes to play soccer, chew on Nylabones and be with her people.  She does have a skin allergy that requires daily medicine.  Lacy is on a weight management plan so she can slim down a few pounds (summer is coming and she really wants a two piece swimsuit).  Lacy is scared of bicycles and golf carts. She is housebroken and crate trained. If you are looking for a furry co worker to rest in a dog bed while you work, play some low key fetch on breaks, go for a short stroll after work or on lunch break, Lacy is the dog for you!!!  Lacy has a propensity to resource guard and protect from other dogs (unsure about cats) so she would be best as an only dog.  If you have any questions let me know!


Update:

Lacy has settled in well at her foster home.  She is a pro at keeping all wild creatures out of the backyard.  Her soccer skills are something to behold.  Her leash walking skills are coming along nicely. And all her beautiful hair has grown back.   She does need a daily pill for her skin condition and most likely will need to remain on the pill for the rest of her life.  She is a wonderful house guest and always lets me know when something unusual is at the front door.  She is not fond of thunder storms or bicycles.  She mostly ignores other dogs while out on walks, unless they try to approach.  She doesn't get on furniture and takes treats nicely.  And she is a favorite at the vets office.  If you are looking for a more older mature lady, who will make a great companion Lacy would be a wonderful addition to your family.

Panzer and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

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?

Persephone and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

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.

Once she finds her forever home, she will have a lot to learn about living in a household. However, as an intelligent and food motivated girl, we know she will adjust. At this time, Sally is looking for an active household that will provide her with the structure, routine, and leadership that all shepherds need.

Sugar Pie and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Sugar Pie arrived in a random backyard in the south in labor. Fortunately, the family whose yard she chose was kind to her but recognized that she needed help and fast. While they waited for a stray hold, they immediately started searching for rescue help. Once the hold lifted, we welcomed Sugar Pie and her babies to the MAGSR family. Although Sugar Pie is an amazing mom, she was sick upon arrival and lost several of her puppies. The remaining babies, Cake, Crumble, Cobber, Sundae, Tort, and Pudding, have been well cared for by their mom and are strong, healthy pups.

Sugar Pie is an absolute love. She is friendly and affectionate with her foster family. Although Sugar Pie's pups have already moved to Maryland to find their forever homes, she is remaining in the south a little longer. This is due to the fact that she has a very high heartworm load and it is safer for her to remain with the experienced foster family that she is currently living with. While waiting for her happy ending, Sugar Pie is getting all of the love, care, and attention she needs to move forward. Sugar Pie is being well socialized with people and other dogs. She is learning the joys of living in a safe home and having a warm bed. Sugar Pie's heartworm treatment has begun. Although treatment is very expensive, this lovely momma is beyond worth the cost. Sugar Pie's entire heartworm treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Donations toward her care are greatly appreciated as this will help us not only help Sugar Pie get all of the care that she needs, but it will also help us continue to support medical dogs in need. Sugar Pie will be ready for her new home soon. Would this lovely lady be the right match for you? 

Update:

Sugar Pie made her way North in March to finish out her heartworm treatment. ! Sugar Pie has completed her heartworm treatment and has finished the restriction period. She is eager to find her forever family! If you are looking for a cuddler and walking buddy this is girl for you! Sugar Pie just like her name is as sweet as pie and as laid back as they come. She is a dog that wants to please her people. This girl is crate trained and not a huge barker. Sugar Pie would love a family of her own to shower with her sweet personality. Sugar Pie would benefit from basic obedience and must go to a home with no small animals as she does have a high level of prey drive. Sugar Pie has been the perfect low-key foster. If she sounds like the girl for you please apply today.

Willow and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Willow was abandoned by her family along with another dog. When it was discovered that the dogs were left on the property, they were brought to a local animal shelter for their safety. Although Willow waited patiently for a family that would commit to her for a lifetime, no one came forward. As shelter staff wanted to ensure that Willow found a safe and loving forever home, they began reaching out to breed specific rescues that would have the ability to move Willow forward. When asked if we could help Willow, MAGSR immediately welcomed her to the family. 

 

Willow is an interactive and intelligent girl. As she has been abandoned and moved around a few times, it does take her a few minutes to adjust to new people. However, given a little time and some tasty treats, she warms up quickly. As Willow moves forward, consistency, routine, and leadership will help her thrive. She is looking for a patient and active household. Although Willow has lived with other dogs and done well during meet and greets with other dogs, she prefers more docile furry companions. Willow, like all dogs, will benefit from training. Not only will training help Willow develop a strong and healthy bond with her forever family, but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. If this lovely lady sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today.

Zanya and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

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:

Sweet Zena found herself in a very difficult situation. She was hit by a car near her home. Unfortunately, her family could not afford her care. As a result, they signed her over to a shelter in the south. With several deep wounds and a bad case of road rash, the shelter immediately had her seen by a vet. Treated with antibiotics, pain medications, and wound gel, Zena was monitored closely to make sure the healing process went well. Recognizing that Zena would need a safe and comfortable home in order to move forward, the shelter began reaching out to rescues for help. Knowing that Zena deserved a chance to move forward, MAGSR welcomed her to the family. 

Zena is a lovely girl. It is highly apparent that she was well socialized with people. Knowing a few commands already, such as sit and down, Zena has had some basic training in her home. She understands how to walk nicely on leash and is beyond happy to be out and about. No stranger to toys or treats, Zena dives right into the toy basket with gusto. With some strong jaws, tough toys are best for this girl. As a young shepherd, Zena is looking for an active household that will keep her body and mind well exercised. She hopes there are lots of toys involved too. Zena enjoys the company of other dogs; however, she is an alpha female. As a result, more submissive friends would be best. Like all GSDs, Zena will need training. Training will help not only Zena create a healthy bond with her forever family but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. 

Although we had hoped that Zena's medical needs were solved, we have learned that Zena is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided had she been kept on heartworm prevention. Heartworm treatment is expensive; however, sweet Zena is beyond worth the cost. MAGSR will cover the entire cost of Zena's treatment. Please consider donating to Zena as this donation will not only help us provide Zena with the care she needs, but it will also help other dogs with medical needs. Over the next few months, Zena will need to take it easy while she undergoes treatment. However, once treatment is complete, she will be back to bouncing around with toys again. If your household is looking for a lovely lady who could use a little good luck, please ask to meet Zena today.
