DESCRIPTION:

The Fall puppies - Autumn, Cider, Ember, Maple, Pumpkin, and Sweet Potato (Tator) - were an accidental litter. Raised together with their parents, these dogs have had the chance to learn many doggy social skills. Although their human family enjoyed the puppies, it can be difficult to care for a large litter and challenging to find safe and loving homes. Recognizing that the Fall puppies would be most successful if placed within a breed specific rescue, their family contacted MAGSR. We promised that we would find each pup a safe and loving forever family that would cherish these babies for a lifetime. 

The Fall puppies are very large babies for their age. They are clearly big fans of food. Having spent time outside, these babies love the sights, sounds, and smells of the outdoors. So, they are hoping their forever families love adventures. Although these babies have been socialized well with their doggy family, they have not been exposed to many new people or situations. Socialization is critical to their success. Recognizing that social skills are essential as the Fall puppies move forward, our amazing volunteers are already beginning this process. Learning the ins and outs of living in a household, these babies are learning the joys of endless toys, comfortable beds, and loads of love. As they continue to move forward, all six babies will strive in households that will provide the structure, routine, and leadership that all shepherds crave. 

Although these babies are absolutely adorable, please remember that puppies are a lot of work. Puppies will whine, chew, have accidents, and fill your home with endless antics. With time, training, and patience, all 6 babies - Autumn, Cider, Ember, Maple, Pumpkin, and Sweet Potato - will develop into good canine citizens. If one of the Fall puppies sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet these fluffy bundles of joy today!

Update:

Autumn is an intelligent and spunky girl. With a goofy and silly side, Autumn keeps her foster family entertained for hours. She has clearly learned the joy of toys and is happy to play for hours. True of many of our more alpha-minded dogs, Autumn can be intense and have a lot of GSD energy. As a strong female, she is going to push boundaries and see what she can get away with. Autumn is looking for a forever family that will provide her with the structure, routine, and leadership that all GSDs need to thrive. It is important that she exercise both her body and her mind on a daily basis. As Autumn is driven and eager to please, she is the perfect candidate for training. Fortunately, Autumn's foster family has already started this process. Not a surprise, Autumn is a star student. As Autumn moves forward, continued training will be needed. Additional training will not only help Autumn create a strong and healthy bond with her forever family, but it will also help her develop the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. Autumn is looking for an active family that will provide her with adventures during the day and a good cuddle at night. If this lovely girl sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet her today!

Bailey and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Beautiful Bailey was adored by her family. They knew she was a special girl and ensured that she had endless love, attention, and plenty of toys. However, when an unexpected event took place, they were unable to keep Bailey and provide her with the life they knew she deserved. Recognizing that we would provide Bailey with everything she needed to meet with success, her family made the heartbreaking decision to return her to the MAGSR. Knowing this was a very difficult decision, we promised we would find Bailey the perfect forever family. 

Bailey is an active, intelligent, and playful girl. She loves her people fiercely and gives them every ounce of affection she has. With some very strong GSD traits, Bailey is loyal, protective, and on point. She tends to notice everything around her and keeps an eye on her people at all times.  As a girl with a high prey drive, smaller creatures can be a little too enticing for Bailey. She finds joy in chasing small creatures, such as rabbits and squirrels, and will need to be monitored closely if they are out and about with her. Fond of the outdoors, Bailey is always up for a long walk, hike, or adventure. She takes cues well from the handler and knows many commands. Lucky to have lived in a loving household for a few years, Bailey has developed a solid understanding of and appreciation for toys; she is hoping her forever family enjoys them too! She loves to play ball and can't help but enjoy a good squeaky toy. With a few years of experience living in a home, Bailey has also developed an affinity for a soft bed. She loves cuddling up on her dog bed and doesn't mind having a dog bed or two in the house just to change up viewpoints throughout the day. Although Bailey is crate trained and housebroken, once settled, she prefers to be out and about. This seems to keep her more settled throughout the day. As is true of all shepherds Bailey will thrive with structure, routine, and leadership. Providing clear boundaries and expectations will help Bailey meet with success. Bailey has already completed some basic training; however, she is always up for more! Continued training is essential to Bailey's success. Not only will it help her develop her canine citizenship skills, but it will also help her develop a strong and healthy bond with her forever family. 

If your family is looking for an active girl who will fill your days with doggy smiles, squeaky toys, and plenty of exercise, Bailey is your girl. 

 

 

Update:

I am a 5 yr old girl with a lot of spunk.  I get real excited when it's time to go out.  I like people, but I'm reactive to other dogs.  I am good with my commands, I am crate trained, I like laying at my human's feet in the evenings.  When my people leave, I get all upset, I seem to do better when left out of  my crate.  I have a good appetite and take treats gently, and I'm good on walks. I feel like Super Girl, can jump a 5 ft door at the kennel.  I like to play with stuffed toys, I'm not a big fan of balls.  I like to play in the pool at the kennel.  If I sound like the dog for you, I"m looking for my forever home.

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!


Update:

Brandi really is a special girl; she is a true GSD and loves with all of her heart and every piece of fur (even the stray ones on the floor!). Despite her previous hardships, the battle wounds on her shoulders, and coming in grossly underweight, she loves fiercely.  Thankfully, her foster family continues to diligently work on helping her to heal from the trauma she experienced during the first part of her life. Unfortunately we don’t know much more about Brandi’s past, but given her wounds it is clear she was mishandled.  As a result, she is timid and fearful with new people, in particular, men.  Therefore, multifaceted and multiple approaches to warm up to Brandi would go a long way with her!  Think of slow, gentle, yet confident, approaches with some tasty treats!  Once the introduction and ‘dating-phase’ is locked-in, we know Brandi will just melt hearts and be an incredible, protective, typical GSD for the right family. She will do best in a home with a family who is familiar or eager to learn the ways of a true GSD - while providing the essentials -  training, structure, boundaries, routines, and continued guidance.

Once Brandi warms-up, she has proven to be a ‘LOVE WITH EVERY FIBER’ gal and will absolutely thrive with a calm, confident and patient handler(s), and a forever family that will patiently give her the opportunity to re-learn that she is loved, cared for and that her new life will be filled with all the things she was missing: love, structure, boundaries, routines and guidance. Providing her with these basic needs, you will watch Brandi blossom in front of your eyes.  Her foster family got a sneak peak of her potential (socialization skills, crate trained, house broken, sloppy kisses and more), she just needs a forever family to get her the rest of the way to completely blossom into the beautiful, fiercely loving and fun pooch she has the potential to be.  Brandi will form a healthy bond with her forever family and greatly benefit from continued training once she has had the time to complete her decompression and recognize she is safe with her forever family. 


Update:

LETTER FROM BRANDI:

Scene set: Brandi sitting nicely in place; Anti-Hero by Taylor Swift playing in the background…

“It’s me…Hi…It’s me…Brandi!  Where do I start?  I’ve had a really rough life before my Heroes at MAGSR picked me up.  I can’t really remember exactly what happened, but the scars on my shoulders, and how grossly underweight I was because of the lack of food are really good indicators that I was badly mishandled.  I want to love you, I want to love all the nice humans who are trying to take care of me, but the humans that had me before were pretty much the anti-heros…so, it takes me awhile to trust anyone that I won’t be (mis)treated like I was before.  I am trying my hardest, and have been through the best training a dog can receive (Mason Dixon K9), this I am really really grateful for!  I am slowly rebuilding my confidence, learning that I can trust all humans again, but it takes me time.  I like to sniff you out, get used to you and see you a few times.  Once I trust you, I will protect you with my life! I really really want a forever home, a family to protect me, and in return, I will be your fierce protector ‘FUR-ever’! Will you take a chance on me?  I will if you will!!

DESCRIPTION:

Calandria, affectionately called Cali, and her mom (Talia) were dumped at a shelter in the south in the fall. Cali was put out for adoption and Talia was sent to the euthanasia room. MAGSR asked for both dogs in the Fall; however, Cali was adopted out to the public. So, Talia joined the MAGSR family and moved forward in another direction. Unfortunately, at the end of January, Calandria found herself right back at the shelter. Her adoptive mom had passed away and, it seems, Cali did not have as many opportunities to socialize as we would have liked while in her care. With the shelter over-capacity, Calandria found herself in the euthanasia room that her mother barely escaped. When we discovered Calandria was back at the shelter, we stepped in and made sure she found her way to the MAGSR family. We do not leave families behind. 

Cali is stunning just like her mother. Intelligent and cuddly once comfortable, Cali is looking for a family that will give her time to decompress. This girl can be unsure, but when given time and patience, Cali does well with a calm and confident handler. She will thrive in an environment with structure, routine, and daily exercise. Still a very young dog, it is imperative that Cali's family socialize her with new people, new animals, and new environments. This will help her develop into a stable adult shepherd. Training is also essential. Not only will training help Cali develop a strong and healthy bond with her forever family, but it will also help her build the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. 

Cali is looking for a special forever family that will continue to support her as she moves forward. If your family is looking for a lovely, curious, and affectionate girl, ask to meet sweet Cali today!

Update:

From her foster:

So far she is super friendly with people and other dogs! She is learning house manners and crate training to prepare her for her new furever home.

Chanel and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

The fashion puppies found themselves surrendered to an overcrowded shelter as their owner felt they had too many animals. Although clearly social and interactive, a shelter is not a safe place for puppies as they do not have the immune system in place to help them fight off disease. In addition, living in a crowded and stressful environment is not conducive to healthy development. Recognizing that these babies needed to move forward safely, MAGSR stepped forward and welcomed this sweet set of babies to the rescue.

The fashion puppies - Louis V, Prada, Dior, and Chanel - are ready to find their forever families. These babies are social, interactive, and energetic. They are the perfect mix of fun. Chanel is dainty but curious about the world. She can be a little reserved in new situations and will be looking for a calm and confident leader. Having lived in an amazing foster home, these babies have begun learning the ins and outs of living in a household. They, like all GSDs, crave structure, leadership, and consistency. Their foster family has worked hard to put this set-up into place. However, it is very important that their forever family continue this process. It is also essential that their forever family continue to provide these babies with socialization in varied environments with varied people and animals. This will help them meet with success. 

Although these babies are beyond adorable, 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, routine, and training, we know that all of the Fashion puppies will meet with success. If lovely Chanel sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet this little honey today!

DESCRIPTION:

Chloe was, like so many other dogs, picked up as a stray and brought to a shelter in the south. Although she waited out her stray hold, as soon as it was up, she was placed on the list for euthanasia. Chloe had not done anything wrong. She was simply one too many at a shelter where thirty to forty animals arrive every day. Recognizing that Chloe deserved a home of her very own, another rescue stepped in and pulled Chloe to safety. They knew that they likely could not place Chloe, but hoped to work with another rescue when openings occurred. When asked if we could transfer Chloe into the MAGSR family, we knew this girl was a good match. 

Charming Chloe has been living with her foster family for the last month. During this time, she has been learning the ins and outs of living in a safe and loving home. As an intelligent girl, Chloe has adjusted to the routines and expectations of the household and is thriving. Chloe is hoping that her forever family will also provide her with clear structure, routines, and leadership. However, as is true of any new dog, she will need time to adjust to her forever home. Chloe is also hoping that her forever family will provide her with training. Training is essential for all dogs to meet with success. Not only does training help create strong and healthy bonds, but it also teaches the skills needed to become good canine citizens. Chloe is looking for a forever family that loves to get out and about, but is also happy to snuggle up in the evenings. If this stunning girl sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet her today.

Evie and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

The Kentucky Six - Diego, Champ, Serena, Peanut, Evie, and Yogi - are cruelty and neglect survivors. Living in inhumane conditions, starved, and used as breeding stock, the Kentucky Six managed to make it off the property alive when the right people heard about their conditions and got the authorities involved. All six dogs were confiscated and brought to a shelter where they waited for the chance to find kind and loving families of their very own. Although shelter staff worked hard to make sure that all six dogs began getting the care and attention they deserved, they recognized that with shelters at capacity and adoptions limited, these six precious souls may not have the chance to find their forever families. They began working with local groups and started networking the dogs in hopes that rescue placement would be found. Fortunately, their message made its way to MAGSR. Our incredible team knew that this group of dogs was very special, so we began putting plans in place to welcome the Kentucky Six to the MAGSR family. 

Although Evie's life was filled with endless challenges and suffering prior to her confiscation, she continues to seek out attention and affection from her people. Intelligent and confident, Evie is the alpha female of the group. She likes to know what all is happening and doesn't appreciate too much goofing around. Although she has lived with several other dogs, Evie likes to be in charge and will maintain her status with the pack. Slow and proper introductions are best.  Although she has endured a lot of suffering, Evie remains a sweet and lovable lady. Sometimes we are simply astonished by the resilience of dogs that have been through so much trauma but are still friendly and interactive.  As is true of all shepherds, Evie will thrive when provided with structure, routine, and leadership. In many ways she is still in the beginning stages of her new life. She will need time to adjust to new people, environments, and expectations. However, given patience and opportunities to learn, we are sure that Evie will continue to discover the joys of being a beloved member of a family. We do not know if Evie has had much experience living in a household. Clear rules and boundaries will help her settle into his new home. Training will also go a long way for this lovely lady. Not only will training help Evie develop a strong, healthy bond with her forever family, but it will also help her develop the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. 

Unfortunately, we have learned that all of the Kentucky Six are heartworm positive. This could have easily been avoided with a monthly heartworm preventative. Evie is just beginning treatment. However, she is already handling her protocol like a rockstar. Although heartworm treatment is expensive, MAGSR will cover the entire cost of her care. Please consider donating to Evie's care as it will not only help Evie continue to move forward, but it will also help us continue to welcome dogs with medical needs. Evie is looking for a forever family that will cherish her for a lifetime. If this lovely lady sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today!

Update:

Evie is such a sweet girl. She always wants to be right by us and loves getting all the pets she can. For someone who may not have lived in a house, she does not act like it. She seems to have settled right into house life. 

Evie already knew sit, down, no, come and her name since we brought her home. She has had no accidents since being home. She knows she is supposed to use the bathroom when she goes outside. She’s not a huge fan of getting in her crate and she needs extra encouragement to go in there as the days go on, but she sleeps well in there through the night. 

Evie is an alpha female. She is making it known she is not taking any crap from her foster brother Murphy (2 years old). While she is setting her boundaries with Murphy, she continues to warm up to him daily. She does kiss him on his muzzle and tries to initiate play but we are taking that slow especially with a sore foot. 

Overall Evie has been a pleasure. In addition to having a sweet and loving personality, she has the softest fluffy fur. 

We have also discovered a small black fur pattern under her nose that looks like a mustache that is absolutely adorable. In one of the straight on photos in the next email it’s very noticeable. 


Update:

Week two with Evie and she has really come out of her shell. She is showing more and more interest in playing with her foster brother Murphy, toys and us. 

As far as her injured foot, some days she puts more weight on it then others. I haven’t seen too much of a change besides that.

Evie can be trusted to sleep outside her crate at night in our bedroom with us. She sleeps all the way through the night when in the same room as us. 

We took her to visit my mother-in-law and Evie did very well on the ride and in the house visiting. Overall, she’s doing very well in our house and is a pleasure. 


Update:

Evie is still having issues with her foot but we’re working with Sandy and vetting to try to work on that for her. Her foot has not stopped her from wanting to be her playful self. 

She took Evie to a trunk or treat on Friday and she did excellent meeting new people and didn’t seem to care about any other dogs that were there. We even received a compliment “Those are the extremely well behaved dogs.”

Evie has also proven herself to be a huge snuggler. She has crawled on top of me while I was laying down to get pets and sleep on me. 


Update:

Sweet Evie is improving a lot health wise. Her foot isn’t swollen anymore and she seems to walk normally with it. She is continuing to have vet check ups since this was caused by a fungal infection and she’s on medication. 

Since Evie has been feeling better, she has become much more active and talkative. 

She loves initiating play with her foster brother. She enjoys wrestling and some chase as well. She loves to play with toys and so far has been very polite and not destroyed any.

She does great on walks and on car drives. We took her to Ocean City for Thanksgiving (4 hour drive from us) and she did excellent. She experienced the turkey trot on the broad walk with so many smells to enjoy and got to check out the beach. 

We took a few walks at home but now she’s up for walks with her foot and will make that a regular thing.

Evie has now replaced my alarm clock. Between 7:30-8:30 it’s breakfast time and she’s waking me up to tell me.

Evie is an absolute sweetheart who just wants to be near her people all the time. She loves all the pets and loves and enjoys being brushed. 

Evie is also an alpha female and takes some time to get used to other dogs. She gets along fine with her foster brother, but on her terms lol. Evie has not done well around small dogs.

DESCRIPTION:

Life for Fallon took a sudden turn when she found herself at an overcrowded shelter in the south. Although she couldn't understand why so many people seemed concerned about her finding something called a home, she knew that the word family kept coming up. She heard the word family a lot, but no one came forward to welcome Fallon into their home. Fortunately, staff members at the shelter recognized that overcrowding might lead to euthanization. So, they began working diligently to help Fallon find rescue placement before it was too late. When contacted to see if we could welcome Fallon into the MAGSR family, our team knew that we needed to help. As Fallon joined the family, we made a promise that when the right match stepped forward, we would make sure she would be part of an incredible family. 

Fallon is a lovely, energetic, and intelligent girl. She has some good drive and prefers a calm and confident handler. She will likely meet with greatest success in an experienced household that can provide clear leadership and boundaries. When Fallon is placed in an environment with a set structure, routine, and expectations, she thrives. Although Fallon arrived without much in the way of manners, she is a quick study and is picking up new skills. Training will go a long way with this lovely lady. Not only will training help Fallon create a healthy bond with her forever family, but it will also help her develop the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. Although we see a lot of potential in Fallon's future, we do not have any information about her past. She is moving forward with a clean slate. We are giving her every opportunity to learn about the world around her and lay the groundwork for success with her family. If this smart, athletic, and driven girl sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet her today!

Gucci and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

The fashion puppies found themselves surrendered to an overcrowded shelter as their owner felt they had too many animals. Although clearly social and interactive, a shelter is not a safe place for puppies as they do not have the immune system in place to help them fight off disease. In addition, living in a crowded and stressful environment is not conducive to healthy development. Recognizing that these babies needed to move forward safely, MAGSR stepped forward and welcomed this sweet set of babies to the rescue.

The fashion puppies - Gucci, Louis V, Prada, Dior, and Chanel - are ready to find their forever families. These babies are social, interactive, and energetic. They are the perfect mix of fun. Gucci was surrendered to the shelter with her siblings. When MAGSR originally committed to the family, Gucci has been pre-adopted by a family. As a result, we were able to welcome the remaining four siblings and wished Gucci the best with her new family. However, as is MAGSR policy, we did inform the shelter that if the adoption fell through, we would provide Gucci with a place in the MAGSR family. The remaining four puppies joined the MAGSR family and Gucci left with her new family. As luck would have it, a week into the adoption, the family decided they no longer wanted Gucci and wanted to return her immediately. Knowing that we would honor our commitment to this girl, staff members at the shelter contacted our team immediately and Gucci was redirected to MAGSR. We promised Gucci that we would find her the perfect family that would commit to her for a lifetime. 

Gucci is a playful, interactive, and goofy pup. She has had a lot of changes in the last few weeks but is adjusting to everything in a graceful manner. Having lived in a home for a short while, she has had some exposure to living in a home. However, we do not have any information from her previous family. Gucci like all GSDs, craves structure, leadership, and consistency. It is critical that her forever family puts this set-up into place. It is also essential that her forever family continues to provide Gucci with socialization in varied environments with varied people and animals. This will help her meet with success. 

Although these babies are beyond adorable, 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, routine, and training, we know that all of the Fashion puppies will meet with success. If little Miss Gucci sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet this stunning baby today!

DESCRIPTION:

Leah and her siblings - Lenith and Leon - were picked up as strays in the south. These babies were brought to a shelter where they waited for their family to come and claim them. No one stepped forward for these babies. Shelters everywhere are being overwhelmed by the number of homeless animals needing placement. Recognizing that these babies deserved every chance at finding safe and loving forever homes, staff at the shelter began looking for rescue placement for this little family. As luck would have it, our team learned that these babies needed a safe option for moving forward. We immediately began working together to provide them with spaces in the MAGSR family.

Leah and her siblings are playful, energetic, and intelligent pups. They were clearly socialized prior to their arrival at the shelter. Staff members were absolutely delighted by these three. Their endless puppy behaviors, goofy antics, and playful nature has kept everyone who meets them smiling. As they move forward, all three puppies are looking for forever homes that will provide them with structure, routine, and clear expectations. This will help these sweet pups grow up into stable and confident adults. Although Leah and her siblings are beyond precious, 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, and training, these babies will develop into the good canine citizens we know they are meant to be. If your family is looking for a loveable little girl like Leah, ask to meet her today!

Libby and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Animal control officers were asked to do a welfare check on a set of dogs in the south. When they arrived, they found three dogs living in deplorable conditions on tie-outs outside in the elements. All three dogs were extremely emaciated, covered in filth, heartworm positive and in need of immediate care. Due to the condition of the dogs, all three were confiscated instantly and brought into a shelter. Upon their arrival, staff members at the shelter began working with the dogs to tend to their most critical needs. However, they knew that these dogs would need a lot of help to move forward. Due to overwhelming numbers of dogs in need, all three dogs found themselves on the list to be euthanized as soon as their case was cleared. Another rescue was able to pull two of the dogs. However, lovely Libby was left without many options. Fortunately, our team learned of Libby's plight just hours before she was scheduled to cross and was able to move her to the safety of the MAGSR family.  

Libby is one special little lady. Although scared and unsure in the overcrowded shelter environment, Libby did well with a gentle hand, some extra patience, and plenty of treats. When out of her run and away from the chaos of the shelter environment, staff members noted that Libby has a calm demeanor and independence that make her a unique and endearing companion. Although Libby likes some time and space to herself, she is equally interested in interacting with her human companions. Libby can be shy and timid when first meeting new people, but when given the opportunity to develop trust, her loyalty knows no bounds. When around other dogs at the shelter, Libby maintained her polite composure and gentle interest. Before introducing her to any new furry companions, we have been giving Libby time to rest and heal with an incredible foster family. This has given her the opportunity to learn all about warm baths, good family, comfortable beds, and the routine of living in a home. We have promised Libby that we will make sure her forever family fills her world with endless days of comfort. 

Although she has been working toward recovery, when Libby first arrived in our care she was severely emaciated, filled with worms, suffering from a bad upper respiratory infection, and dealing with untreated heartworms. Since her arrival, our team has been working hard to make sure that Libby receives the attention and care she deserves to move forward in safety and comfort. Although Libby's medical care is expensive, we know she is more than worth the cost. Please consider donating to Libby's continued medical care. Not only will your donation help Libby continue to move forward, but it will also help us continue to welcome dogs with medical needs into the MAGSR family. When ready, Libby will be looking for a patient and loving forever family that will cherish her for a lifetime. Could that be with you?

Lolly and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Lolly is nothing short of a survivor. This girl was picked up as a stray with another female dog who it was assumed was her sister and brought to a crowded shelter. Both girls were in poor condition. Emaciated, missing fur, covered in a skin sores, and heartworm positive, they entered the shelter just as a distemper outbreak occurred. Although both girls were very sweet, they were quickly added to the list for euthanasia. Luckily, they were pulled from the euthanasia room at the last second by another rescue when an incredible foster stepped up to help. Not all fosters are ready for one dog, but this one was open to two. 

The girls were tightly bonded and were lucky to leave with their lives. Shortly after they arrived in care, Lolly's sister popped positive with distemper. This virus is often extremely challenging and takes many lives. Although she fought hard, Lolly's sister did not survive leaving Lolly alone and grieving. Her foster made sure Lolly had everything she needed to keep moving forward. He quarantined Lolly to make sure that she did not come down with the virus, kept her company, and began addressing her other medical needs. With her skin issues addressed, her weight back up where it belongs, and her heartworms gone, Lolly has made huge strides. After months of recovery, Lolly is ready to find a forever family of her very own thanks to the love and support of her foster dad. 

Lovely Lolly is an interactive girl. She enjoys the company of her human and canine companions. Now that she can be a dog, Lolly enjoys romping around outside. She has learned the joys of toys and a comfortable bed. Having lived with a foster for the last several months, Lolly has also been learning the ins and outs of living in a home. However, as is true of any new dog, this girl will need a chance to adjust to the routines and expectations of her forever family. A home with clear routines, structure, and leadership will help her thrive. Training will also go a long way with Lolly. Not only will training help her bond with her forever family, but it will also help her develop the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. Lolly is looking for that special family that will cherish her for a lifetime. Could that be with you?

Update:

Lolly is still decompressing- she is very sweet, affectionate and wants to be a small lap dog- but she can’t because she is too big!  This southern cutie came up in the freezing cold and is handling her transition changes very well.  She discovered she enjoys snow, and it tastes good! Lolly is house trained, and is doing well with crate training. She is enjoying being with other dogs around her size.  This is one food motivated pup which will be good for the basic training she was never taught.

DESCRIPTION:

The Fairy Sisters - Fern, Merriweather, and Tink - were part of a surprise litter. Although most of their littermates found loving homes, these lovely little ladies were not as lucky. Recognizing that puppies are adorable, but a lot of work, their family decided to surrender them to a shelter. However, this proved to be a dangerous option for these babies. With shelters significantly overcapacity, owner surrenders are often immediately euthanized. In an attempt to save the lives of all three pups, the shelter contacted MAGSR to redirect the Fairy Sisters into our care. Fortunately, our team was able to find incredible foster homes for all three girls. We promised we would find the Fairy Sisters families that would love and cherish them for a lifetime. 

Having moved into loving foster families, all three girls are learning the ins and outs of living in a household. Clearly socialized, Merriweather enthusiastically approaches new people, happily accepts food and treats, and loves a good snuggle. Continued opportunities to socialize with new people and new situations will be critical to Merriweather's success. Smart and quick to pick-up new tricks, the girls are beginning some basic training but they also have plenty of opportunities to play. Recognizing that toys should be a vital part of every household, the Fairy Sisters love toys and are hoping their forever families do too. As these girls continue to move forward, they will benefit from continued work and patience with basic commands and leash manners. With so many new expectations, each of the Fairy Sisters will need time to learn the rules, expectations, and routines of their new homes. 

Although these girls are beyond lovely, please remember that puppies are a lot of work. Puppies will whine, chew, have accidents, and fill your household with endless puppy antics. With time, training, and patience, Merriweather and her sisters will develop into good canine citizens. If you are looking for a new family member that loves new opportunities, playtime, and endless snuggles, ask to meet Merriweather today!

Molly and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

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?

Novi and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Novi and her family - Tej, Anshu, and Asha - were dumped on the side of a busy road in the south. With traffic flying past at high speeds, this little family was not likely to survive for long. Fortunately, a good samaritan saw what was happening and stopped to try to help the family. With an incredible stroke of good luck she was able to corral the family and convince them to hop into her car. From there she took them to a rescue friendly boarding facility. Although the authorities were contacted and a stray hold was put into effect, no one came forward. Recognizing that this family would benefit from rescue placement, a plea went out for help. MAGSR knew this family deserved the chance to move forward as a unit, so our team welcomed all four members into the rescue. 

Novi is a stable, playful, and energetic girl. Clearly well socialized with people and adults, Novi is in many ways your typical, loveable ball of energy. She loves playing with her brother and still likes to know her people are close. Although Novi is already building a solid foundation of skills, it is critical that her family continue to provide her with opportunities to socialize with new people, animals, and environments. This will help her develop into a stable adult dog. It is obvious that Novi is an absolute doll, but 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, and training, Novi will develop into the good canine citizen we know she is destined to become. If this little sweetheart sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today!

Update:

Novi requires a total hip replacement which will be WELL over $10K. 

All too frequently people choose to inappropriately breed dogs that are not health tested, and this has led to an increase in young dogs being born with genetically poor joints, particularly hips in German Shepherds. Novi, at less than a year old, has found herself in pain as she navigates hips that do not have the ability to support her growth. MAGSR is committed to getting her the highest standard of care, which means having her on a pain management program, hydrotherapy, and a total hip replacement surgery. She will also likely need extensive physical therapy post surgery and ongoing monitoring of, and possible future surgeries on, her other joints as she grows and the joints mature. Novi has a team of dedicated veterinary staff and MAGSR volunteers helping her forward-- do you want to be a part of her happy ending? Donate to her care now, and share her story with others!

It is also essential that their forever family continue to provide these babies with socialization in varied environments with varied people and animals. This will help them meet with success.

Talia and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Talia and one of her pups were surrendered to an overcrowded shelter in the south. Unfortunately, as is true of so many owner surrenders, they were immediately added to the list for euthanasia. Her puppy was immediately adopted by a local family leaving this lovely girl alone and without options. Talia was not placed in the general population; instead, she went immediately to the euthanasia room. When we learned about Talia's fate, our team began working with other rescue groups in the south and began putting a plan in place. As luck would have it the stars aligned and we were able to pull Talia just hours before she was scheduled to cross. 

Talia, or Tali as her foster family calls her, is a very special girl. It is very clear that humans have not always been kind to her; however, she still wants to interact and snuggle. We are always impressed by the level of resilience and gentleness of a dog who has been mistreated in the past. Talia is clearly a gentle soul who is looking for a patient family who will provide her with the structure and routine needed to move forward. A very submissive girl, Talia approaches most things hesitantly and needs a little time to adjust. When given this opportunity, she is able to meet with success. Once comfortable, Talia greets her people with little tail wags and wiggles. She gives the gentlest kisses and simply wants to be near you at all times. Well behaved in the household, Talia has impressed her foster family with how quiet and well behaved she has been so far. It is clear that this girl has been in a home before, but she is still learning all the ins and outs associated with household living. Her foster family is giving her the chance to slowly build these skills in a calm and positive manner. As Talia continues to move forward, she will benefit greatly from training. Not only will training help Talia develop a strong and healthy bond with her family, but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. 

Unfortunately, we have learned that Talia is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have easily been avoided had her family provided her with monthly heartworm preventatives. As she moves forward, MAGSR will cover the entirety of Talia's heartworm treatment. Heartworm treatment is very expensive; however, this special girl is clearly worth the cost. Please consider donating to Talia's care. Not only will your donation help us provide Talia with everything she needs, but it will also help us continue to welcome medical dogs to the MAGSR family. Fortunately, Talia's treatment has already begun and she is handling this first step well. We can't wait to see this lovely girl continue to move forward. If you are looking for a little lady who is looking for plenty of adventures during the day and snuggles at night, ask to meet Talia today.  

Update:

Talia, who is lovingly called Tali by her foster family, has been in her foster home for a few months. She has been very busy learning all the ins and outs of living in a home. At this time Tali is housebroken and crate trained. She thrives on routine and consistency. Preferring a quiet and calm environment, Tali loves to be near her people and is always up for a good snuggle and a belly rub. Her daily snuggle sessions bring her foster family endless giggles. Recognizing the importance of giving Tali positive experiences with new people, Tali was lucky and was chosen to participate in training with one of our training partners. This was an amazing opportunity for our lovely girl as it gave her the opportunity to work with new people and to build confidence. Tali knows several commands at this time but is always ready to learn more. With basic obedience in line, Tali has gained some needed confidence. However, it is still essential that her forever family continue this process in order to build a healthy bond together. 

While Tali has been adjusting to her foster family, we have also been continuing to address her medical needs. Tali completed her first 60 days of heartworm treatment and moved into the next phase of her treatment. Tali has had the first of her melarsomine injections and is resting comfortably while this next stage of the process gets underway. Tali will be taking it easy over the next two months as her body needs time to rest and recover. Her foster family is keeping close tabs on her and making sure she has everything she needs. Heartworm treatment is very expensive. Please consider donating to Tali's care. Your donation will help Tali get the medical care needed to move forward as well as help other dogs with medical needs join the MAGSR family.
