DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Aspen is a mature lady who brought nothing but joy to her family. Her life took a bit of a turn when her primary caretaker suddenly passed away and no one was left that could care for her. Recognizing that Aspen needed a soft place to land, she was returned to the MAGSR family with hopes that a loving family would welcome her into their home for her golden years. 

Aspen is a love. Her family set her up for success by making sure she was well socialized, learned manners, and every opportunity to shine. They doted on her and she repaid them with unwavering loyalty and love. Aspen loves people of all ages. She is also a fan of large male dogs. In fact, she has been participating in doggy day care for years and has a blast with her buddies there. Having lived in a wonderful home for many years, Aspen understands the ins and outs of living in a household. However, as is true of any dog, she will need time to adjust to the new routine of her adoptive home. As a senior pup, Aspen definitely enjoys her walks and daily playtime, but she also enjoys a good nap and some quiet time as well. She is at an age where she has a nice balance of energy. Although Aspen has completed basic training, she looks forward to continuing to train with her new family. Training will not only help Aspen fine tune her skills, but it will also help her create a strong and healthy bond with her new family. Aspen is looking for a loving family that will continue to provide her with the love and attention she so clearly deserves. If Aspen sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet her today!

--- Please give to help Cobbler

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely little Cobbler is one of Sugar Pie's puppies. Having been born into the rescue, we have had the unique opportunity to watch her grow. Adopted as a puppy, Cobbler's family adored her. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, they could no longer provide for her. Recognizing that Cobbler deserved a safe and loving forever family, they contacted MAGSR to make sure that Cobbler could move forward safely. We immediately welcomed this lovely little girl back into the MAGSR family at 9 months old and promised that we would find her the perfect forever home.

As a young, affectionate, and energetic girl, Cobbler is looking for an active family that will exercise both her body and her mind on a daily basis. She will happily come along for a long walk, run, or hike filling each adventure with puppy smiles and love. As a young dog, it is imperative that Cobbler's family continue to socialize her with new people and animals in controlled settings. This will help her develop into a stable and confident adult. Cobbler has had the luck of having lived in a loving home, as a result, she knows many of the ins and outs of household rules. However, she will need to adjust to the structure, routine, rules of her forever home. This will take time and patience as Cobbler learns expectations. Training will be very important for Cobbler as she moves forward. Not only will it help her develop a health bond with her family, but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. Cobbler can't wait to settle into her forever home. Could that be with you?

Erica and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
--- Please give to help Erica

DESCRIPTION:

Erica was picked up in the south and brought to a local shelter. Shelter staff immediately fell in love with this delightful girl and started pleading for a rescue placement. Fortunately, we were able to step forward and welcome this lovely girl into the MAGSR family.

Erica is the definition of gentle giant. She is easy to walk on leash and friendly with everyone she meets. Erica rides well in the car but is still learning the best way to get up into larger vehicles. We are still getting to know this big, beautiful girl and will post updates soon. If Erica sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today. 

Update:

Erica has been with us in her foster home for a few days now, and is still settling in. We've learned a few things about her in this short time. She is definitely a "low-key" kinda gal, well-suited for a quiet, less active home. We believe she is part (or whole) Anatolian shepherd, and shows many of the characteristics of this breed. She bonds quickly to her care-giver (that's me!) but does not exhibit separation-anxiety at all; she has been left alone for several hours by herself without problems. She is happy to greet me at the door when I return, but then just retreats to her "spot"  to watch me.

Erica has obviously lived in a home, as she is completely housebroken and waits at the door to tell you she needs outside. She was reported to being accepting of a crate, but that has not been my experience with her - she registered her displeasure at being crated, and has been just fine, uncrated, in my home. She is not destructive at all and stays off the furniture (a rule in my household). Erica is a big girl, but at 90+ lbs she is not overweight for her breeding - she has a visible "waist" when viewed from above. She eats whatever is in her dog bowl, has adjusted to feed changes just fine, and takes treats very gently. Erica walks well on leash and follows my lead. She knows very few commands but is easy to handle.

Erica is looking for her perfect home, one without small animals, and with folks who will love her and care for her for the rest of her life. If your household seeks a "gentle giant" companion dog, please ask to meet Erica.  

 


Update:

Erica truly is a gentle giant but she has some pep in her, don't let her plodding walk fool you! She most definitely has the character traits of an Anatolian with some GSD/Mastiff thrown in plus or minus some. Independence, thy name is Erica.  She needs time to warm up and feel comfortable - After a little over a week we actually got play bows, mini zoomies, and back wiggles with feet dancing. She actually loves walks and hikes (but I don't see her as a jogging partner). She is fine with people, shopping carts and cars and she rides well in the car.  Erica is good with other dogs, however it takes some time to warm up and once she gets a chance to see and smell other dogs, she is happy for them to go on walks with her. She walks well on a leash -- not at a heel, just not pulling. If anything she needs a few gentle tugs to get a move on when there is an interesting smell distraction.  She does not counter surf; however, anything lower than a standard table (basically, lower than her head) is up for grabs if left unattended.  Erica loves people including children.   She absolutely LOVES getting her ears and neck scratched. Her favorite way of greeting people she knows is to put her head between your legs to be sure you can reach those special spots. If you sit on the floor she will make sure you have access to her head. She does not get up on furniture (except a very well placed bench that allows for a good view outside) but she did realize what dog beds were after a bit of persuasion.  While she is somewhat food motivated she does not know any obedience skills and anyone who wants to do training will need to take it very slow and patiently. If you are looking for a gentle soul to share your home, keep you company on walks, and be there for petting when a fur fix is needed, Erica is the pup for you.


Update:

Erica was adopted a year and a half ago from MAGSR. She was adored by her family and brought every member of the household endless joy. Unfortunately, a circumstance beyond their control arose which resulted in the need to return Erica to MAGSR. Although this was a very difficult decision, Erica's family knew that we would make sure she found an amazing family that would shower her with a lifetime of love and affection. 

Understandably, Erica is a little confused by the recent changes in her life. We are giving her the chance to decompress and settle back into the rescue. Although she is a little unsure right now, Erica has maintained her sweet personality.  Erica is looking for a forever family that will make sure she continues to get daily walks and exercise. This will help her stay active and healthy. She would love a family that also enjoys some daily snuggles. Children in the home would be an added bonus as she simply adores them. As is true of all dogs, Erica is looking for a family that will provide her with the structure, routine, and consistency needed to feel "at home." If your household is looking for a loving lady with a gentle presence, ask to meet Erica today.

Ginny and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Beautiful little Ginny is one of 11 puppies and a mama that were part of a cruelty case within Maryland. Upon arrival, this sweet litter of pups quickly won over all the staff within the shelter; however,  they knew this family needed to move into the safety of a rescue immediately so they could move forward and find loving forever families.  When asked if we could help this litter of 11 babies and mama, team MAGSR stepped up and welcomed the Hogwarts family to the rescue. 

Ginny is an adorable and charismatic pup. She seems to pick up new learning quickly and is very responsive to her people. Like her brothers and sisters, she is working on socialization and house manners. Fortunately, our Hogwarts puppies have a good start already as they are sweet and friendly pups who happily soak up all of the love and attention they can find. Living with amazing foster families, each of the Hogwarts puppies is starting to learn all of the important things they will need to know in order to develop into stable and confident adult dogs. Although puppies bring endless joy to everyone they encounter, please remember that puppies are a lot of work. Puppies will whine, chew, have accidents and fill your home with endless puppy antics. With time, patience, structure, and routine, they will develop into incredible dogs. If these babies sound like the right match for your household, ask to meet one of them today!

Update:

Ginny is quite the independent little explorer. She loves to play and is doing great in her foster home. She ready to move to her forever home and meet her new pack!

DESCRIPTION:

Happy-go-lucky Grape was picked up as a stray and brought to a local shelter. Although she waited patiently for a family to come and claim her, no one came to bring her home. Shelter staff quickly fell for this little sweetheart and knew that she would be most successful if placed in a rescue. When asked if Grape could join the MAGSR family, we immediately welcomed her. 

Grape is a delight. She has clearly been well socialized with people and other animals. Wiggly and interactive, Grape easily wins over everyone she meets. Although we do not know anything about her past, we have learned that Grape is happy to say hi to new people, rides well in the car, and loves treats. Training will go a long way with this little girl. Not only will it help her create a strong bond with her forever family but it will also help her develop into a stable and confident adult dog. Although Grape is an absolute joy, 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, patience, structure, and routine, Grape will develop into a good canine citizen. If this sweet girl sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet her today!

Fantastic Hermione (fka Fred) is one of 11 puppies and a mama that were part of a cruelty case within Maryland.

Katniss and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

The Hunger Games puppies - Peeta, Katniss, Thresh, Rue, Gale, and Finnick - were an accidental litter in the south. Although they were well-cared for as babies, as they grew, they became too much for their family. Recognizing that they were unable to provide a large number of babies with what they needed, their family surrendered them to a shelter. Unfortunately, with the overwhelming number of dogs needing placements in shelters right now, owner surrenders are the first dogs to be euthanized. The minute these babies entered the building they were in danger. Trying to do everything they could to keep this group alive, shelter staff began pleading for rescue help. When we heard about their plight, our team knew we needed to welcome the Hunger Games family to MAGSR. 

Katniss is a curious little girl who is already proving to be quite the problem solver. She enjoys the company of her people but is also happy to keep herself entertained with toys. As an active young pup, Katniss is looking for a family that can give her the time, attention, and training that will help her meet with success. Still a very young dog, it is essential that Katniss continue to socialize regularly. This will help her develop a stable and confident personality. Although Katniss is an absolute doll, please remember that puppies are a lot of work. They will whine, chew, have accidents, and fill your home with puppy antics. With time, patience, training and socialization, Katniss will develop into the good canine citizen that we know she is destined to be. If this gorgeous girl 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.

Miss Jackie and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Miss Jackie and her housemate, Mr. Jack, were used for puppies. Their lives have been filled with little care, comfort, or kindness. When their owner decided that it was time for them to move on, their future options were very limited. Fortunately, another rescue heard about their situation and reached out to MAGSR for help. 

Although we knew that both would need some additional love and attention, we also knew they deserved kindness and compassion. Miss Jackie is friendly, interactive, and goofy with her people. She seeks out attention from everyone around and is a bit of a social butterfly. Although Miss Jackie is wonderful with her people, she is not a huge fan of other furry creatures. With a high prey drive, Jackie likely needed this to survive the first 5 years of her life. As a result, she is looking for a home where she can be the sole focus of the family. Miss Jackie has done very well in her previous foster home. She is crate trained and house broken. However, once properly adjusted, she is able to move about freely in the house without causing issues when alone. Having lived in a household, Miss Jackie does understand the rules of living in a home; however, she will need to adjust to the general routine and structure of her forever home. An intelligent girl, Jackie has had some training and knows many of her basic commands. Further training is always positive as this will help Jackie exercise her mind as well as develop a healthy bond with her forever family. 

Miss Jackie is a lovely lady who is looking for a forever family that will provide her with the leadership, safety, and love that she so clearly deserves. Could this be with you?

Update:

Miss Jackie is a very sweet girl. She seems to love all humans and loves attention. She is a laid back, easy going dog. She loves going for long walks. She likes playing with certain toys. She is housebroken and crate trained. Miss Jackie prefers male dogs over females, she can be quite reactive to female dogs. She will get along with most male dogs, but when she wants her own space she'll react. I think it's safe to say Miss Jackie likes being the boss and if she had her choice she would like to be the only dog in the house.

Mona Mi and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Mona Mi was picked up as a stray in a busy city and brought to the local animal shelter. Upon entering the shelter, it was clear that this little girl was in need of significant medical support. Emaciated, missing a significant amount of her fur, covered in scabs, and clearly in pain, Mona Mi needed help and quickly. Although shelter staff began putting care in place, they knew Mona Mi needed to be transferred to a rescue who could get this little girl the care she needed with a private vet. When asked if we could help Mona Mi move forward, we immediately welcomed her into the MAGSR family. 

Having joined the MAGSR family, Mona Mi was moved to one of our vets in order to help her begin the healing process. It was determined that she had contracted demodex mange which had developed into a secondary skin infection. With a good exam, antibiotics, medicated baths, and fantastic vetting care, Mona Mi has made significant strides. She is feeling much more like a pup and ready to learn about the world. Although a little hesitant at first, when given a little time to adjust to new people and situations, Mona Mi is a ball of fun. She is full of life and ready to move forward. As is true of all young shepherds, Mona Mi craves structure, routine, and leadership. She has a lot to learn but is eager to start. It is critical that Mona Mi's forever family get her into training. Training is important as it will not only help her develop a strong, healthy bond with her family, but it will also help her develop into a stable and confident adult. Mona Mi is ready for her forever family. Could that be you?

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.

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 previously, she would likely be best as the only dog in the home. 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 energetic lady sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today.

Over the last month, Willow has made some excellent progress. She has settled nicely into the MAGSR family and has been a regular participant at events. As Willow has been working with a variety of handlers and getting out to play on a daily basis, she has gotten in shape and is ready for her summer wardrobe. Willow's sweet and well-balanced personality makes her an excellent candidate for many households. Equally happy to go out and about on a long walk or simply lounge around under a nice shady tree, this girl loves the outdoors and hopes her forever family does too. Treat and toy motivated, Willow is already learning basic commands. She has developed a good understanding of sit, down, and leave it with more commands on their way. When finished working she loves a little time to play with toys particularly the fun-filled ones that squeak. Willow is waiting patiently for her forever family but hopes they come for her soon. Could that family be you?


Update:
-------
Willow has settled into her foster home nicely. She is housebroken and loves to sleep in her crate. She goes in by herself or when asked. She’s very sweet and very affectionate.
 
Willow loves interactions with humans but is somewhat aloof regarding dogs. She is a bit hesitant when approached by or approaching unknown dogs. She prefers a cautious approach and this can sometimes take several meetings. Jumpy or anxious dog make her nervous and she prefers not to interact with them. For the most part most dogs can sense Willow’s Alpha vibe and will bark at her even if she’s doing nothing but walking down the street. Recommend that she be an only dog, or with a non-dominant male companion dog of similar size (with proper introduction).
 
Willow is thriving with two 30 minute walks each day. Play time and training time. She’s learning touch and currently understands: sit, down, paw/shake, go find (finding food items that have been hidden by searching for them with her nose), hide and seek (finding humans in the house), go to the crate, go to your bed (she goes to her dog bed). She’s not much of a barker but will protect the house if she hears a strange noise. She’s very good in the car and loves to go out for car rides.
Willow has a very high prey drive (or hunting instinct), therefore, during walks she is mostly engaged in searching for small critters such as squirrels, rabbits, etc. It is not recommended that there be small pets such as rabbits, ferrets, or dogs smaller than herself in the house. Willow tends to bolt when she sees squirrels and other small animals, therefore, it is not recommended that small children walk her due to her size and weight she can get loose and run off. We’re working on leash manners as she tends to be a heavy puller and requires a shorter lead to keep the pulling in check. We’re also working on getting her to pay more attention to the handler rather than to the critters and other distractions she encounters.
 
She has a few fears that we’re working on: afraid of vacuum cleaners (she’s made a large improvement in the time she’s been here), afraid of hair dryers, and thunder/lightning (slightly)
 
Willow is very smart, learns fast, is very willing to please and will test boundaries to see what she can get away with. Proper training and correction are advised. Considering all things mentioned she is a sweet girl with a great disposition, she’s past puppy antics and mature. She’s happy playing, working, walking or just hanging around and not needy or whiny and can entertain herself with her toys. She’s also a perfect size for a smaller home or limited living spaces. Most people we meet on our walks think she’s a puppy and are surprised to hear she’s four years old and won’t get any bigger.

Willow is progressing nicely. We have continued our twice daily walks modifying the times to avoid the excess heat. I’m pleased to report that we are at the five week mark and leash pulling has diminished considerably. We now have a considerably loose leash and a much more pleasant walk. In addition, our ‘critter progress’ has improved as well. Reactivity has lessened considerably.  At this point, the critter will grab her attention but she will continue walking and will not try to chase. I would say on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the most intense reaction, Willow is currently at a 4-5 (where she was probably at an 8 or 9 one month ago).

We’re still working on vacuum cleaner fear. She is now able to be in the next room (watching) while the vacuum is going and I have been able to get her to touch the vacuum while it’s off.

Inside the house Willow is very obedient complying with whatever she’s told to do. Outside it’s a little more difficult because of all the distractions but she does well considering. She is also respectful of boundaries and does not go into areas where she knows she is not allowed to go.

The relaxed environment, good food, and increased exercise have done her well. She now sports a beautiful shiny coat, her eyes are sparkly, and she has a much more relaxed demeanor. She has a lovely disposition and makes me laugh every day. She's going to make a fantastic family member for some lucky family.
