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!

DESCRIPTION:

Stunning Miss Chloe and her buddy, a great pyrenees, showed up at a dog-friendly household on a chilly September morning. Seeing that the dogs were social and seemed to do well with people if given time to adjust, the home owner began looking for their family. Unfortunately, when the family was found, they made it clear that the dogs were no longer wanted and were not welcome back in their home. Recognizing that both dogs would do best in breed specific rescues, the finder had the dogs surrendered and started working with rescue friends to send out a plea for both pups. Chloe's buddy found placement right away, but many GSD rescues were already over capacity. Word spread that Chloe needed placement. When we heard that this lovely lady needed help, MAGSR immediately welcomed her to the family. 

Chloe is in many ways your typical, young GSD. She is active, intelligent, and has endless energy. Motivated and quick to pick up new skills, Chloe has been learning sit, wait, heel, leave it, kennel, place, and recall. It's amazing how quickly she learns. Of course, knowing her treat of choice helps - cheese! As is true of the breed, she will test the handler. A calm and confident handler would be best. Further training will go a long way with Chloe as she already has a foundation to build upon. Training is essential for all dogs as it not only provides everyone with the opportunity to build a strong, healthy bond, but it also helps young dogs, like Chloe, with the opportunity to develop into stable adult dogs. Having had the opportunity to learn about the ins and outs of living in a home, Chloe is both crate trained and housebroken. She is cues with barking when she needs to go outside and takes care of her business quickly. When outside, Chloe is happy to bounce around or simply enjoy the sunshine. She is clearly an adventurous girl who loves the fresh air. She will likely make a great walking or running buddy. Not well socialized with new people, Chloe is good with people of all ages but needs some time to adjust especially when meeting new adults. A slow and patient hand is best during introductions. Although adults take a minute to adjust to, Chloe adores children. Gentle and responsive with the littles, Chloe is definitely a special girl. Having she lived with another dog, Chloe does know some doggy social cues. However, she is most successful with slow introductions to new dogs. When given the opportunity to develop a relationship over time, Chloe does enjoy the company of other dogs, particularly large, male dogs. With structure, routine, and clear leadership, Chloe will thrive. If this incredible girl sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet her today!

DESCRIPTION:

MAGSR received a call from another local rescue that a large group of puppies were in need of placement as soon as possible. In total there were 21 pups who would need rescue placement. As this was too many puppies for one group to support, the hope was that we could work together to get everyone into safe and loving homes. With 8 pups finding safety with the other rescue, our team began working together to see if we could find loving foster homes for the remaining 13. Although this was a rather large undertaking, team MAGSR worked quickly to put everything in place. The "Christmas Puppies" - Rudolph, Hermy, Yukon, Clarice, Moonracer, Donner, Vixen, Claus, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Comet, and Cupid - have arrived and are hoping to find forever homes for the holidays.

Having been born in what appears to be less than ideal situations, the "Christmas Puppies" arrived having missed out on early vetting, exposure to new environments, and socialization with people outside their immediate caregivers. Now that they are living with MAGSR foster families, their opportunities are endless. All 13 puppies are going to see our amazing vetting partners so that we can begin vaccinations and make sure that everyone is healthy. In their foster homes, these puppies are learning about toys, treats, regular meals, and the comfort of soft, warm beds. They are also beginning the important process of learning the ins and outs of living in a home. As very intelligent pups everyone is excited to begin. As they move forward, it is critical that their new families provide the "Christmas puppies" with regular socialization with people and other animals. A well socialized pup will become a stable adult. Although these babies are absolutely adorable, please remember that puppies are a lot of work. They will whine, chew, have accidents, and fill your home with endless puppy antics. With time, training, patience, and socialization, they will develop into good canine citizens. If you are interested in welcoming a member of the "Christmas puppy" litter into your household, ask to meet them today!

Update:

Claus's brother, Rudolph, joined the rescue with some unexpected medical needs that have required extra support.  He could really use your help.

Working closely with our amazing veterinary teams, Rudolph has begun seeing his regular vet to address typical puppy vetting needs as well as a specialist to address concerns about a preputial defect. Although it is unknown if this condition was congenital or trauma based, Rudolph needs a contrast study and preputial reconstruction in order to correct the defect and help him move forward. When combining Rudolph's presurgical care, surgical consult, contrast study, and surgical reconstruction, his care will cost more than four-thousand dollars. Having been a very good puppy throughout this process, we know that Santa has Rudolph on the top of his "nice" list and is working on finding him the perfect forever family. With surgery scheduled in early December, Rudolph is hoping to be healed for the holidays. Rudolph's care is very expensive, but we know that this special guy is worth the cost. Please consider supporting Rudolph for the holidays and donate to his care. Not only will your support help us get this little lovebug the help that he needs to move forward, but it will also help us continue to support other dogs with medical needs.

Genie and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Genie and her family - Axel, Jackie, Gyspie, 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.  

Genie is a young, energetic, intelligent girl. She is looking for an active household that will provide her with the clear structure and routine that all shepherds need. Consistency and leadership are essential to developing stable and confident adult shepherds. This is particularly true in Genie's case as she will try to control the situation if she feels her handler cannot. As a result, Genie will be most successful in a household with a calm, confident, and experienced handler. Coming from a situation with little opportunity for affection or interaction with the world around her, Genie is learning about the smells, sounds, and sites around her. She can be a little timid at first; however, patience and confidence go a long way with her. As is true of all young dogs, Genie will need daily exercise for both her mind and her body. This will help her develop the ability to handle new people and situations in a calm and composed manner, as well as help her develop a healthy mindset. Continued socialization is also critical for Genie as she has spent her first year with limited interactions. Providing Genie with opportunities to interact with other people and other animals in a controlled manner will help her develop essential skills that could not be established while chained up. Training will be an essential piece of this process, as it will not only help Genie learn to develop a healthy bond with her family, but it will also help her develop the skills needed to be a good canine citizen. Fortunately, Genie has already learned many of her basic commands. Further practice will help her develop the stability needed to meet with success. With some heavier GSD specific traits, such as herding and guarding of property, Genie is a young girl who is looking for a safe and loving family. It is important that her new family understands the needs of the breed. If Genie sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today.

Jockey and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Young Jockey was picked up as a stray and brought to a local shelter quite a few times. This last time Jockey got off the farm her family made the tough decision to surrender her as they were afraid she may get hit by a car. Recognizing that a GSD is often most successful if placed through a breed specific rescue, shelter staff worked with MAGSR to help move Jockey forward. We are so excited to have welcomed Jockey to the MAGSR family. 

Thriving on attention and interaction, Jockey loves to be doted upon and is incredibly outgoing. She is certainly a work in progress as she doesn't quite realize that she is a full-grown shepherd and certainly needs some work on her manners. Jockey will be a delight in training class. Not only will training help Jockey 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. Jockey will benefit from both. 

Jockey has not had many interactions with dogs that we are aware of and as a result, we are still learning about her doggy socialization skills.

Jockey is a work in progress and incredibly worth it! If you are interested in helping Jockey learn the good life please inquire.

Katie Ann and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Katie Ann was picked up as a stray and sheltered by another rescue while they waited for her stray hold. Unfortunately, no one came forward to claim this lovely girl. Although they enjoyed their time with Katie Ann, the rescue caring for her felt that she would be most likely to find her forever family if she moved into a breed specific rescue. When asked if we could help Katie Ann take the next step toward her forever home, MAGSR immediately stepped forward.

Katie Ann is an affectionate and friendly girl. She greatly enjoys the company of her people and was clearly well socialized with people early on in her life. However, as is true with most shepherds, Katie Ann will overbond if given the opportunity. This can cause her to become overprotective of her people. In order to meet with success, Katie Ann is looking for an experienced household that will work with her to develop a healthy relationship. Katie Ann will thrive with routine, leadership, and structure. Training will also go a long way with this lovely girl. Not only will training help Katie Ann bond to her forever family, but it will also help her develop into a good and stable canine citizen. Katie Ann has already begun to learn some basics but will flourish with continued training. Best placed with a confident handler, Katie Ann is looking for an active family that will commit to her for a lifetime. If this lovely lady sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today.

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.


Update:

Update 23 November 2022: Lacy has been in the rescue for over a year and is really hoping to find a family she can call her own this holiday season.   Are you looking for a dog that is already housebroken, knows some basic obedience and is happy to lounge or play fetch in the yard ?! If so, Lacy is the girl for you!  Lacy is like a fine wine; she only gets better with age and she absolutely adores her humans. Lacy has 3 main loves: people, jolly balls, food and marrow bones, in that order.  Lacy had a rough past as she's been neglected and abandoned by the ones who were entrusted to provide her a loving home but she is putting that behind her and ready to start fresh.  Lacy is intelligent, inquisitive, lovable, and protective.  As is her true nature she is a herder and wants everyone and everything to be corralled, to include cyclists as she is upset when they pass her by but will gladly jog next to or in front of them.   She is great at keeping her humans on a schedule and will vocally let you know if you are late for a feeding or letting her outside.  She has blossomed into a beautiful shepherd with a beautiful coat with proper nutrition, medication, and TLC.  Lacy would prefer to be the only dog in the household.  Lacy would enjoy a family to show her love, attention, structure and patience.  She is such a good girl who has a lot of love to give. If Lacy sounds like a good fit for you, ask to meet her today!

Lassie and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Lassie was originally purchased from a breeder in the south with the intention of potentially breeding her. However, as time passed, her family decided that this was too much for them. Unfortunately, with busy schedules and other things to attend to, Lassie was too often left without the attention and care she deserved too. Luckily, one member of the family adored this lovely girl and kept an eye on her. She made sure to visit and work with Lassie as often as possible. Although she loved Lassie, she knew that this such a special girl deserved so much more. When she reached out to MAGSR for help, we immediately started working with our team to welcome Lassie to the family. 

Lassie is a stunning lady. Having been brought up around people of all ages, she is good with a variety of people. However, due to a lack of socialization it can take her a little time to warm up to new people. Once comfortable she is affectionate and playful. Lassie really enjoys playing with kids. Although Lassie is good with large dogs, she is not a big fan of cats or small dogs. Having lived in a home, Lassie already knows many of the ins and outs of living with a family. She is crate trained and housebroken. However, as is true of any new dog, Lassie will need time to adjust to the structure and routines of her forever home. Food motivated, Lassie is excited to start training and is planning on being the star of the class. Training is critical as it will not only provide her with the opportunity to develop a healthy bond with her new family, but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. Lassie is looking for a forever family that will enjoy her playful personality and affectionate mannerisms. Could that family be with you?

Lucy and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Lucy's family fell on hard times and could no longer afford to provide her with the care that they knew she deserved. As a result, they decided to surrender her to a local shelter where they hoped that Lucy would find a forever family that would provide her with a lifetime of love. Although the shelter staff recognized that Lucy was an incredible girl, they also knew that shepherds are a special breed that are often most successful when placed within a breed specific rescue. When asked if we could welcome Lucy into the MAGSR family, we immediately stepped forward. 

Lovely Lucy is an interactive, intelligent, and affectionate girl. It is obvious that her family worked hard to socialize her with new people and animals. Lucy enjoys the company of people of all ages. She grew up with kids and is accustomed to their activities, sounds, and movements. Lucy also lived with cats.

DESCRIPTION:

Molly is the mom to the 11 Hogwarts puppies. This family was part of a cruelty and neglect case within Maryland. Upon their arrival at the shelter, staff did everything they could to begin working with this family. They were able to foster Molly's puppies out within the MAGSR family; however, Molly needed to remain at the shelter while she awaited a decision on her case. Although she was extremely emaciated, covered with fleas, and weak, Molly appreciated the kindness of staff members and slowly began warming up to new people. Shelter staff worked hard to help Molly begin the recovery process and began getting her some much needed vetting. However, Molly was significantly weakened by the years of mal-treatment and the need to keep her puppies healthy and strong. As a result, a case of kennel cough quickly escalated. When volunteers came through to move Molly into the MAGSR family, they knew something was not right. Molly's kennel cough had evolved and become two-fold. She now had pneumonia and bronchitis. Fortunately, our team came together to ensure that Molly was safe and received all the care she needed. With time, patience, and some extra TLC, Molly has made significant strides. Her body is much stronger and she is ready to move forward. 

Molly is an intelligent and energetic dog. She is looking for an active and experienced forever family that will help her meet her full potential. Having survived horrifying conditions in her previous household, Molly is looking for a home where she can be the focus of the family. A home where she can be the only pet would be her ideal situation. This way she can soak up all of the love and attention of her family while filling their lives with giggles, snuggles, and endless kisses. As she continues to move forward, Molly will need to exercise her body and her mind on a daily basis. Not only will this help her find a good balance within the household but it will also help her use her mind effectively. Molly is a big fan of toys and can be found playfully throwing them around while making her goofy sounds. She is good at keeping herself entertained but also enjoys a good game of fetch. This smart little lady is already picking up commands. She is learning to sit, down, drop it, come, and roll over. She can't wait to learn more! Food and praise motivated, Molly will be a blast at training. Training is essential as it will help Molly develop a strong, healthy bond with her family. It will also help her further develop her skills and socialization so that she can develop into a good canine citizen. Molly is looking for an active home that will provide her with a lifetime of love and attention. Could that be with you?

DESCRIPTION:

MAGSR received a call from another local rescue that a large group of puppies were in need of placement as soon as possible. In total there were 21 pups who would need rescue placement. As this was too many puppies for one group to support, the hope was that we could work together to get everyone into safe and loving homes. With 8 pups finding safety with the other rescue, our team began working together to see if we could find loving foster homes for the remaining 13. Although this was a rather large undertaking, team MAGSR worked quickly to put everything in place. The "Christmas Puppies" - Rudolph, Hermy, Yukon, Clarice, Moonracer, Donner, Vixen, Claus, Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Comet, and Cupid - have arrived and are hoping to find forever homes for the holidays.

Having been born in what appears to be less than ideal situations, the "Christmas Puppies" arrived having missed out on early vetting, exposure to new environments, and socialization with people outside their immediate caregivers. Now that they are living with MAGSR foster families, their opportunities are endless. All 13 puppies are going to see our amazing vetting partners so that we can begin vaccinations and make sure that everyone is healthy. In their foster homes, these puppies are learning about toys, treats, regular meals, and the comfort of soft, warm beds. They are also beginning the important process of learning the ins and outs of living in a home. As very intelligent pups everyone is excited to begin. As they move forward, it is critical that their new families provide the "Christmas puppies" with regular socialization with people and other animals. A well socialized pup will become a stable adult. Although these babies are absolutely adorable, please remember that puppies are a lot of work. They will whine, chew, have accidents, and fill your home with endless puppy antics. With time, training, patience, and socialization, they will develop into good canine citizens. If you are interested in welcoming a member of the "Christmas puppy" litter into your household, ask to meet them today!

Update:

<p>Prancer's brother, Rudolph, joined the rescue with some unexpected medical needs that have required extra support.&nbsp; <strong><a href="/donate/rudolf-needs-your-help">He could really use your help.</a></strong></p>

<p>Working closely with our amazing veterinary teams, Rudolph has begun seeing his regular vet to address typical puppy vetting needs as well as a specialist to address concerns about a preputial defect. Although it is unknown if this condition was congenital&nbsp;or trauma based, Rudolph needs a contrast study and preputial reconstruction in order to correct the defect and help him move forward. When combining Rudolph's presurgical care, surgical consult, contrast study, and surgical reconstruction, his care will cost more than four-thousand dollars. Having been a very good puppy throughout this process, we know that Santa has Rudolph on the top of his "nice" list and is working on finding him the perfect forever family. With surgery scheduled in early December, Rudolph is hoping to be healed for the holidays.&nbsp;Rudolph's care is very expensive, but we know that this special guy is worth the cost. <strong><a href="/donate/rudolf-needs-your-help">Please consider supporting Rudolph</a></strong> for the holidays and donate to his care. Not only will your support help us get this little lovebug the&nbsp;help that he needs to move forward, but it will also help us continue to support other dogs with medical needs.&nbsp;</p>
