DESCRIPTION:

Annika is a sweet girl. She has been living in a foster home where she has had the opportunity to interact with a variety of people and other dogs. Although Annika enjoys the company of other dogs, she prefers to live with a smaller pack rather than a larger pack. The energy and busy nature of a large pack seems to be stressful for her. Annika's favorite furry foster sibling in her previous foster home was a large male who she could be found cuddling next to when sleeping. Annika is housebroken and does understand the crate. However, she prefers to be out and about. This is something she will need to earn in her forever home. As is true of all shepherds, Annika will meet with success in a household that will provide her with structure, routine, and leadership. Training will go a long way for Annika as it will help her not only bond to her new family, but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. If sweet Annika sounds like the right match for your family, please ask to meet her today.

Annisa and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Annisa and her siblings - Orion and Kiernan - arrived in MAGSR's care after being transferred from another rescue. They have clearly been well cared for and are waiting patiently for their forever homes. As these babies were living in a foster home prior to arrival, they have already begun to develop their social skills with people and other animals. It is essential that their new families continue this process as it will help them develop into stable and confident adults. Annisa is your typical puppy - playful, wiggly, and curious about everything. Recognizing that toys provide endless fun, Annisa happily moves from one toy the next for entertainment. Although Annisa is adorable, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics, they get into things, and they will chew on inappropriate items. With time, patience, guidance and training, Annisa will develop into the good canine citizen that we know she is destined to become. If this little girl sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet her today.

Baby Girl and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Baby Girl and her siblings were part of an accidental litter. Her family loved her greatly and took good care of her and her siblings. However, as the puppies grew older, it became difficult to take care of so many dogs. Recognizing that Baby Girl and her siblings would be better able to receive the care and attention they deserved if they were rehomed, Baby Girl's owner made the difficult decision to surrender the group of siblings to MAGSR. We promised that we would find each member of the family safe and loving forever homes. 

 

Baby Girl is a sweetheart. She was well socialized in her home with kids and other dogs. However, her family struggled to find time to socialize her in the community. As a result, Baby Girl can be a little timid with new people and in new places. Given time, patience, and guidance, Baby Girl will develop the confidence she needs outside of the household. Just like any young dog, Baby Girl will thrive with structure, routine and training. Training will help her to not only bond with her new family but also develop into the stable adult we know she is destined to be. If Baby Girl sounds like the right match for your household, please ask to meet her today.

Boo and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Boo was found suffering on the side of the road by a work crew. Recognizing that this girl needed help and fast, they contacted a local rescue who quickly came to Boo's aid. Rushed immediately to the vet, it was clear that Boo was malnourished, covered in a demodex mange, and had already contracted heartworms. She was weak from all of the neglect she had endured. Although Boo immediately began receiving much needed care, it was clear that she would need to be transferred to a rescue who could continue to support Boo as she grew stronger. When asked to welcome Boo into the MAGSR family, we immediately stepped up to help her. 

Although Boo has clearly endured a lot in her short life, she is an absolute sweetheart. Everyone who has met Boo has been amazed by her gentle personality. Somewhat timid with new people and situations, Boo will do best in a household that will provide her with the time, patience, and leadership to adjust to her new home. Boo is growing stronger every day. She is ready to begin looking for a forever home that will continue to show her that the world can be a kind and loving place. If Boo sounds like the right match for your household, please ask to meet her today. 

Update:

Boo is adjusting very well to living in a house.  Her foster reports she is housebroken and she will let you know when she needs to go out. She also does well in the crate overnight.  Since Boo is heartworm positive she needs to keep her activity level limited to leash walks and no running or jumping.

Boo, like any puppy, likes to “collect” items around the house and relocate them so it is important to give her alternate toys which she loves to play with. Her favorite toy is a yellow rope that she engages with her handler. Boo has learned to be around cats (7) as a matter of fact and mostly ignores them so she will likely do fine in a house with a cat.  Boo is an incredibly sweet give who loves attention and being with her people.  She would love a family to call her own.  Please ask to meet Boo!


Update:

It is just a joy to be in the presence of lil’ Miss Boo!   She has been through so much – found by the side of the road all banged up, a terrible skin condition, and heartworm – but she is upbeat, and so sweet and happy to be with just about anyone, all wiggly and jumpy just like you would expect of a young GSD!    She is feeling and looking a lot better, her skin is healed and her coat has grown in, and her energy is growing.  That  makes the crate rest and exercise limitations for her heartworm a little hard on this young girl, but she is managing like a trooper.  She has a LOT of personality, and she knows she’s hot stuff, so she is something of a diva and can make and little racket and rattle around if she thinks someone is not doing what she wants, but she is super smart and responds very well to consistent leadership and clear communication.  She is very well crate acclimated and pretty well house broken, but she will sometimes submissive pee if she gets excited.  She is also a bit mouthy, but she has improved a lot on both fronts pretty quickly.   So with continued guidance and structure as she matures, she will be a very mannerly girl, but she would do best in a home with no small children.   She loves her bunkmate, an older female GSD, and wants to play but she can’t yet.  Boo is young, enthusiastic, and easily over-stimulated, so it’s best not to get too playful with her for now, so she can try to stay cool, calm, and collected for her HW treatment and recovery over the next couple months.  But once she’s been through that, watch out for this little pistol!  If you think you might be interested in Boo, better get in line soon, because she is something!

Carla and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Sally and her Cars Puppies were rescued in the south by another group. As they wanted to do right by this lovely family, they began reaching out to other groups who would be able to support the family until they were ready to find forever homes of their own. When asked to welcome this family into the MAGSR family, we immediately said yes. 

Carla is a bundle of energy and joy. She is cute as a button and brings happiness to everyone around her. Well socialized in her foster home, Carla is a match for a household with kids, cats, or other dogs. Although Carla's foster family has given her an excellent start, it is imperative that they continue to keep Carla well socialized. This will help her develop into a stable adult. Although Carla is absolutely adorable, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics, they get into things, and they will chew on inappropriate items. With time, patience, and training, Carla will develop into the good canine citizen that we know she is destined to become.

Clover and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Charming Clover was picked up as a stray and brought to a shelter. Upon arrival it was highly evident to staff members that Clover was in need of help and fast. Emaciated to the point where she was struggling to walk and covered in ticks, shelter staff did what they could to make her comfortable and then began asking for help. Recognizing that Clover would need to be transferred to a vet for support and monitoring, they requested that she be moved immediately. When the call went out for help, we knew this little girl would be right at home in the MAGSR family. 

Clover is clearly in pain but she remains sweet and loving. She has been moved to one of our amazing vetting partners so that we can meet her medical needs. As care has begun, we have discovered that in addition to her other medical needs Clover is also heartworm positive. This could have been avoided if she had received monthly heartworm prevention. Clover's heartworm treatment will begin as soon as she gains some much needed strength. The cost of Clover's entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Clover is beyond worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Clover's treatment. Your generosity will help us save her as well as other dogs with medical needs. Clover will need to take it slow over the next few months. This will help her body heal so that she can move forward with a forever family. As we are just getting to know Clover, we will provide updates soon.

Update:

Clover had bilateral FHO's (Femoral Head Ostectomy) completed on Monday, April 12th. She had some older fractures as well; however, as they had already set, the surgeon could not repair these. While under the surgeon went to spay Clover and discovered that she had a pyometra so, Clover was lucky that the decision was made to spay her while she was under.

In order to keep Clover comfortable and calm, she is receiving some good pain medication. PT exercises have begun. However, as Clover moves forward she will need extensive Physical Therapy in order to heal appropriately.

Your generosity has funded Clover's surgery but, of course, the need persists for funding to support our ongoing medical commitments. Please donate to help.

Crimson and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Crimson was a stray who fortunately got picked up by a good samaritan and brought to a shelter. Once there, she waited patiently for a family of her very own. Unfortunately, no one came for Crimson. When contacted by another rescue to bring Crimson in, MAGSR stepped up. 

Crimson is a beautiful and intelligent girl. She gains confidence from a calm and stable handler. Crimson, like all dogs, will benefit greatly from training as it will help her develop into a good canine citizen. At the same time training will also help Crimson bond to her new family. As Crimson is new to the rescue, we are still getting to know her. Please stay tuned for more updates.

Update:

Lovely Crimson arrived in MAGSR’s care with some medical concerns that warranted immediate support. Unsure what was causing continuous gastro-intestinal issues, MAGSR was fortunate to have Crimson's primary vet and internal medicine specialist collaborate to determine best practices to meet her specific medical needs. This process has taken several months as Crimson's amazing team worked through options, medications, dietary changes, and procedures. 

It has been determined that Crimson has megacolon, which can be best described as chronic constipation. As her colon is unable to efficiently remove the waste from her body, Crimson suffers from involuntary bowel movements. This can be uncomfortable as Crimson's bowel movements are directly linked to when her colon is overfull which forces the excess waste to overflow in order to release the pressure on her colon. If not kept clean, Crimson's back-end can become inflamed. Although she is able to produce some formed stool, Crimson does have residual leakage. She does have full control over her bladder and is able to wait to urinate until outside. In order to provide Crimson with some relief, she is on a prescription food with medication that is administered three times a day. Although this has reduced her symptoms a bit, unfortunately, this is not a cure all for Crimson's condition.  

Looking for all possible solutions for this sweet girl, MAGSR began working with surgical specialists to see if Crimson was a potential candidate. The hope was to provide her with a surgical option that would bypass her colon. Unfortunately, after meeting with specialists, they determined that due to the loss of muscle control in her backend a surgical option would not be successful. Crimson will always be a dog with medical needs.

Crimson is looking for a very special forever family. This exceptional household will need to administer Crimson's medication three times a day, provide daily cleaning of her back-end for sanitary purposes, and bathe her at least two times a week. Due to her specific medical needs, it is recommended that Crimson's household be carpet free or that she be contained to a few rooms that lack carpet as she is simply unable to control her bowel movements and will have accidents. Ideally, Crimson is looking for a safe and loving home that can provide her with attention, affection, and a supply of comfortable blankets to lay on that can be easily laundered. 

Crimson is a happy and loving dog. Her unique condition is not painful as long as she is provided with adequate care and kept clean. This lovely lady clearly loves life and is desperate for a family to call her very own. A big fan of people, the outside, and snow, Crimson's adorable personality quickly wins over everyone around her. As she is all about being the apple of your eye, Crimson would be most successful in a household where she can be the only dog. If your household is ready to love and support this sweet girl, please ask to meet her today.

Elvis & Priscilla and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Elvis and Priscilla were abandoned by their family. Fortunately, when a good Samaritan found them, they moved quickly to get this special pair help. Elvis and Priscilla were brought to a local shelter where staff immediately began addressing their needs. Underweight, under-socialized, and lacking vetting care, shelter staff recognized that Elvis and Priscilla would need some extra support to move forward. When contacted to see if we could help this pair find their forever home together, MAGSR was happy to step up. 

It is highly evident that Elvis and Priscilla have not always been treated kindly by people. They will need time to warm up to new people and situations. As is true of all shepherds, Elvis and Priscilla will thrive in a home that will provide them with structure, leadership, and patience. Fortunately, this special pair are living in an amazing foster home where they are learning that humans can be kind and gentle. This is also giving them the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of living in a household as we do not know if this is a new experience for this pair. As Elvis and Priscilla have begun to get the vetting care needed to move forward, we have learned that Elvis is heartworm positive. His entire treatment will be handled by MAGSR. Although this will mean that Elvis will need to take it slow for a little while, once his treatment is completed he will be back to full strength. As they have a special bond, Elvis and Priscilla are looking for a home with room for two. If your household sounds like the right match for this sweet pair, please ask to meet them today. 

Update:

Both Elvis and Priscilla are very much young and very playful.  They do have basic command training (sit, stay, down, no, come).  They also do their personal business as soon as you let them outside - then they like to sniff around a bit.  They eat right away and  do not try to eat each other's food.  They take snacks gently, Elvis waits his turn but Priscilla wants to have her nose in everything so she has to be put in a stay and reminded that it isn't her turn yet.  She is learning, but it will take some time.  They are a work in progress on the Leash - not sure they were ever on one before.  We have been working on this but it is still an experience.  At night, they sleep in my room on the floor next to the bed.  When I'm outside (in the front yard) they are free in the house and there have been no issues.  When I picked the dogs up I was told that Priscilla would do her business in the space she slept in - since being here she has had no accidents.  They let me know if they need to go out - we are working on a schedule.

They both show signs of being treated very harshly.  If you raise your voice Elvis slinks away, Priscilla, cowers and acts as though she is going to be hit.  We are working to change these behaviors but that will take time and earned trust.  They both cower when there is a loud bang/crash and if the person has a tool in their hand.  Priscilla, although scared, is still so young that her curiosity wins out and you can show her the item and she will sniff the object from all sides and be okay.  Elvis will be okay once Priscilla has accepted it.   When Priscilla gets really scared she hides behind or under Elvis.  They are truly bonded and depend on each other for the other's strengths to their own weaknesses. 

Priscilla is a real talker - never seen anything like it.  She will stop if you ask her to - sometimes it does take more then once, especially if she is sassing you.

I'm currently working from home and most of the day they both spend sleeping at my feet or within sight.  They love to be on camera during conference calls - but quickly return to sleeping.  They just want to please you and get rubs and hugs and an occasional snack is good.  They haven't shown any interest in toys or balls I would think that would change with time.  Elvis and Priscilla are both beautiful and loving dogs that just want love and attention, they are waiting patiently to find a home together where they can be the apples of their owners' eye, could that be you?!


Update:

Elvis and Priscilla are a young set of shepherds who had a really rough start.  They are doing well and making strides every day in foster care.  They are both altered, up to date on their shots, housebroken and crate trained.  Elvis has completed his heartworm treatments. With slow and careful introductions they are getting along with well with the fur siblings in our home.  They both are very smart and willing to learn!  Elvis knows how to sit, and both will respond to their names.  Leash walking is an adventure for all, and they need work in this area.  They love romping in the backyard!  Elvis is a very go with the flow kind of guy.  He is very shy at first, but with some gentle words, high value treats and loving pets he comes around and craves head rubs, pats and hugs.  Priscilla continues to be very nervous.  She needs lots of time to learn to trust and want human interaction.  When she opens up, it is on!  She wants to be a lap dog, be snuggled and will give kisses.  Priscilla is more scared of men then women.  She is not aggressive when scared and does go to her 'house' (crate) when very nervous as she has learned it is a safe place. She looks after Elvis and will often check in with him.  Priscilla will need a loving home that will give her time to continue to learn to trust, while not letting her rule the roost.  She needs to gain confidence with her new pack leaders.  Elvis and Priscilla are continuing to build confidence and social skills of living in a household with other dogs.  These two would do best in a home with older children who are dog saavy, and can continue to build trust.  Their favorite thing to do is nap together under our feet when we are working from home or watching TV in the evenings.  If you are looking for a wonderful pair of dogs these may be the ones for you!

Fox and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Fox was a victim of cruelty and neglect. Fortunately, when animal services learned of her situation, they moved quickly to help Fox as well as other animals in the household. Although this sweet girl was adjusting to her new circumstances, shelter staff recognized that Fox would have her best chance at finding a loving forever home if she was transferred to a rescue. When asked to help Fox move forward, MAGSR immediately stepped up. 

Fox is a beautiful girl both inside and out. Although she has had to endure circumstances that no one should have to live through, her sweet spirit remains. As she can be a little timid when first new people, Fox warms up quickly with patience and kindness. A few high value treats also go a long way. Once comfortable, Fox is your typical young shepherd. She enjoys snuggles, being close to her people, and goofing around. Currently living with senior GSDs and a few cats, Fox enjoys the company of animals that will give her a minute to warm up to them. She seems most comfortable with one of the pushy, dog-savvy cats. As is true of most shepherds, Fox will benefit greatly from training. This will not only help her bond with her new family, but it will also help her develop confidence. If Fox sounds like the right match for your family, please ask to meet her today.

Harry & Diana and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Harry and his housemates, Megan and Diana, were confiscated from their owner.  Although all three dogs get along with one another, it appears that Harry and Diana are closer to one another. They have relied on one another for comfort and safety and clearly enjoy the companionship of another dog. When confiscated, it was clear to animal control officers that these three were not well cared for or socialized around other people. As a result, they all require some time to adjust to new people and situations.

When provided with patience, confidence, and leadership, Harry's interactive and affectionate personality begins to shine. It is simply amazing how a dog that has gone through so much is willing to give people another chance to earn his trust.  In the same circumstances, Diana becomes more interactive and begins to trust her handlers. She does best when given the opportunity to warm up slowly to new people. Having survived a difficult situation, we have been impressed with her continued attempts to trust people. With the right family, Harry and Diana will excel. As is true of all dogs, Harry and Diana will benefit from training. 

We are confident that with the right family, Harry & Diana will excel. Both of them, like all dogs, will benefit from training. This will not only help him bond to their new family, but it will also help them develop into good canine citizens. If your household sounds like the right match for this incredible pair, please ask to meet them today.

 

Update:

After arriving in MAGSR's care, it became quite apparent to our volunteers that Harry and Diana would be best placed in a home together. These two beautiful pups have survived a life of neglect. However, they seem to find comfort and safety when together. Each of them contributes to their relationship and helps the other learn to adjust to new people and situations. Although it takes some time and patience to gain their trust, Harry and Diana are definitely food motivated. High-value treats are always welcome and seem to help when building trust. Once comfortable, Harry and Diana enjoy affection and definitely have the "shepherd lean" down pat. If your family has room for two, please consider opening your home to this special pair. 


Update:

Harry and Diana are housebroken, crate trained, they don't get on furniture or beg for food.  They enjoy their daily walks but can't wait to get back home.  As they have become more comfortable in their foster home they are building more confidence and have started to play.  Harry's safe place is in his crate and that is where he likes to go to sleep at night but in the morning his fosters find him sleeping on the rug next to Diana.    They share their dinner and breakfast by going from one bowl to the other.  Diana likes all the attention, if Harry is getting some lovin, she will come over and try to bump him out of the way.  These two are very laid back, if you are looking for a loving bonded pair of dogs contact us.  We would love to have you meet them.

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Honey's family loved her dearly. However, due to circumstances beyond their control, they were unable to continue to care for her. As a result, they made the difficult decision to surrender her to a rescue. Although this was hard to do, Honey's family knew it was in her best interest to move forward. We appreciate all that they did for Honey. 

Honey lives up to her name. She is a lovely girl. Having been well socialized with people and animals, Honey gets along well with just about everyone. She has lived with dogs, cats, chickens, and ducks without issues. As a young, big, and energetic girl, Honey will need daily exercise for both her body and mind. This will help her burn her energy appropriately while also stimulating her mind. Training will be very beneficial for Honey as it will not only help her bond with her new family, but it will also help her become a good canine citizen. If Honey sounds like the right match for your family, please ask to meet her today!

Update:

Honey has been living with a foster for 2 weeks now they are happy to report Honey is 100% house broken and crate trained.  Honey loves to be near her humans, play with toys and chew on bones.  She does not go to the bathroom on a leash so a fenced in yard would be the best fit for her, she will only go to one spot in the yard to do her business.  We are working on Honey’s introduction to other dogs, we think something in her past must have happened to make her untrusting of others initially.  She currently has 6 foster siblings, so she is getting a lot of practice socializing and so far her favorites are a miniature poodle and the dominant lone female GSD.

--- Please give to help Isa

DESCRIPTION:

Isa and her siblings - Adira, Knox, and Beckett - were dumped on a country road. Emaciated and clearly lacking care, these babies needed help and fast. When a kind member of the community discovered what had happened to the puppies, they moved quickly to help these babies find safety. Recognizing that these little orphans would have their best chance at finding safe and loving forever homes with a rescue, a plea for help went out. 

Isa is a love. Having the benefit of recuperating in a foster home, she has had the opportunity to start learning about the comforts of living in a home. Her foster household has also taken the important step of beginning to socialize her with other people, dogs, and situations. Continued socialization is critical to Isa's success as she grows. Although Isa is a doll, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics, they get into things, and they will chew on inappropriate items. With time, patience, and training, Isa will develop into the good canine citizen  we know she is destined to become. If this little girl sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet her today.

Khalisi and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Khalisi was placed outside in a metal cage during a severe storm and left. Fortunately, she was found and quickly moved to safety before anything catastrophic occurred. Unfortunately, safety was short-lived as Khalisi found herself placed at an overcrowded shelter where many dogs do not make it out alive. When a rescue plea went out, MAGSR immediately stepped forward.

Although Khalisi has lived through some challenging circumstances, her sweet personality remains intact. Since arriving in our care, she has had the opportunity to learn that humans can be kind and loving. In her foster home Khalisi has been interacting with people and other dogs. She enjoys snuggling up next to her furry foster brother and can often be found sleeping with her back touching his back. With soft beds, regular meals, and structure Khalisi is thriving. As Khalisi continues to move forward she is looking for a loving forever home that will provide her with the guidance, leadership, and safety that all dogs deserve. If this lovely girl sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today. 

Update:

Khalisi is a sweet honey of a dog despite obvious trauma in her past. She does everything she can to please her handler and works overtime for pets and snuggles. She is at that perfect age where she is excited for a walk or to romp around with her foster brother but is just as stoked to cuddle on the couch with some TV. She is very responsive to commands and learns quickly. Khalisi does have a strong prey drive and is not good with cats, however she may have been a mother before coming to MAGSR and was a great mother goose to the 4 unrelated puppies that came up from down south on her transport. This lady is eager to please and earn your heart with her unconditional love! As is true with most Shepherds, she responds well to routine and boundaries and will benefit from an obedience tune up with her new family, allowing her to bond closely with them

Mazie and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Mazie and Sadie were well-loved members of their family. Unfortunately, due to circumstances outside of their control, the girls' family needed to find them a new home. MAGSR was honored to step-up and provide Mazie and Sadie with a safe haven while we looked for the perfect forever for these girls. 

Mazie is a special girl. Her family welcomed her home after a breeder considered putting her down after being born with a congenital defect. Although Mazie required a little extra time and support, she was welcomed home to a family that taught her how to walk, play, and interact just like any other dog. Mazie is a little confused by all of the changes in her life. As a result, she needs a little extra time to warm up to new people. However, when provided with leadership and guidance, Mazie warms up to new people and leans in for affection. 

If Mazie sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet her today. 

Update:

Mazie is doing incredibly well in her foster home and has made a lot of progress.  In that time we have found she does great with bath, blow dry and nail trim.  Mazie is not food aggressive, nor is she food motivated but will be enticed with a high value treat such as chicken nugget. She is on a routine and happy to go outside to potty every 4 hours and does well in her crate.  

She is on medication to help her with her bladder which she will have an occasional over excited dribble. When at home she likes to play with stuffed toys, balls, and chew on bully stick.  The recent snow accumulations have shown her love of snow and frolicking in it. Exuberantly wants to play with other dogs, teaching/training to play easy, calm and when needed leave it.  She will happily go for a car ride with you and give kisses.  Mazie will howl when she hears firetrucks or sirens.  She is working on sit, stay, off and with me and continued training will allow her to thrive.  Ask to meet Mazie today!

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Millie was found hanging out at a high school with her buddy Murphy. Both dogs were brought to a shelter where they waited for a family to claim them. When no one came forward, the shelter staff started pleading for rescue support as they were at capacity. Who could say no to such sweet dogs?

Millie is a love. She is friendly and good with both people and other dogs. As a young girl, she is energetic and will do best in a home that can burn her energy on a daily basis. Arriving as a stray, we do not know what Millie knows about living in a household. However, she seems to be a quick learner who wants to please her handler. As is true of all dogs, Millie will thrive when provided with guidance, leadership, and consistency. Training will help her adjust to her new family as well as develop the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. Millie is looking for a forever family that will love and care for her for a lifetime. Could that be with you?

Lovely Nova was brought into rescue after being pick-up as a stray. Although she did well with her foster family, it was felt that Nova would have her best chance at finding her forever home in another region. When asked if we could help Nova move forward, we were happy to step up. 

Prior to her arrival at MAGSR, Nova was very fortunate to have landed in a loving foster family who was very experienced with the breed and excited to help her. While living in her foster home, Nova was provided with the structure, routine and guidance that all GSDs crave. Living with dogs, kids, and a dog savvy cat, Nova benefited greatly from regular socialization with a variety of people and other animals. She is looking for a forever home that will continue to provide her with these opportunities in a safe and structured manner. Nova will thrive in a household that will help her exercise both her body and mind on a daily basis. Training will be key as Nova moves forward as it will not only help her bond with her new family but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. If Nova sounds like a match for your household, ask to meet this sweet girl today.

Odetta and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Odetta is a survivor. She was found living on the streets of a large city protecting three fluffy puppies. Recognizing that they needed help, animal control was called to help Odetta's little family find safety. They were brought to a shelter where the staff quickly recognized that this little family would have their best chance if they were transferred to a rescue. Odetta's puppies, Benceti, Pavys, and Thorson, have found loving homes; however, Odetta has needed additional support adjusting to her new life.

An intelligent girl who is also a problem solver, Odetta thinks through situations well and loves to work her way through specialized toys for treats. Although Odetta has some clear strengths, she did not have positive socialization with people prior to her arrival at the shelter. As a result she is very fearful and uncomfortable around people. At this time she is a high flight risk and will require training, patience, and structure in order to learn that people are safe and will attend to her needs. Although our volunteers are working very hard to help Odetta adjust to her new life, this is a slow process. 

When Odetta is ready for her forever home, she will be best suited for a family that has experience with fearful dogs. A quiet home without children would give Odetta the opportunity to adjust slowly. Odetta does seem comforted by other dogs and enjoys their company. Her anxiety level drops significantly when another stable dog is present. Although another dog in the home is not required, Odetta may benefit from the confidence that a second stable dog would bring. 

Please watch for updates as Odetta further develops her socialization skills.

Sally and her Cars Puppies were rescued in the south by another group. As they wanted to do right by this lovely family, they began reaching out to other groups who would be able to support the family until they were ready to find forever homes of their own. When asked to welcome this family into the MAGSR family, we immediately said yes. 

Sally was a known homeless dog in the community in which she lived. She often visited members of the community and was friendly and gentle. When Sally became pregnant, a community member began working with a rescue group to trap Sally and her family. It took some time; however, they met with success and Sally and her babies were ready to move forward to lives of comfort and safety. Sally is an incredible mommy. She has done a wonderful job caring for her 10 babies. However, she now deserves a family of her very own that will love and care for her with the same kindness she has shown her babies. In many ways Sally is still a baby herself. She will thrive in an environment that provides her with the structure, routine, and guidance that all dogs crave. Training will be key to Sally's success as it will not only help her bond with her new family, but it will also help her develop into the good canine citizen we know she is destined to be.

Sierra and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Lovely Sierra was picked up as a stray. When she arrived at a shelter it was highly evident that this girl had been struggling to survive. Sierra was emaciated and infested with fleas that had caused a skin infection. As shepherds often struggle in shelters, Sierra needed help and fast. Vet care was quickly provided and this little lady immediately moved into MAGSR's care. Sierra enjoys the company of people and other dogs; however, she lacks confidence which can cause her to overbond to her people. As she moves forward, Sierra will benefit greatly from training; it will not only help her bond appropriately to her new family, but it will also help her learn to take cues from the handler. She will meet with greatest success in a household that has experience with the breed. We are still getting to know Sierra. As we know more about her, we will post updates. If Sierra sounds like a good match for your household, please ask to meet her today. 

Update:

Sierra has been a foster home for a few days and has proven she is a loving and faithful companion with the people she trusts.  She takes time to warm up to new people and does not like being approached but is highly food motivated and will come to you for that.  Sierra is an affectionate, intelligent, loyal girl who wants nothing more than to be with her person.  On the first day I received kisses and she was on her back enjoying belly rubs and all the pets!  She is housebroken and sleeps quietly through the night.  She does not get on furniture or chew things she should not.  She loves to play tug, go for walks, indulge in a marrow bone, and get lots of attention.  She is a sweet and sassy 1 yr old GSD and likes to romp around but gets overly excited and not quite sure how to play but with time that will improve. She will need time to adjust to other dogs and does ok if on leash and being monitored at this time.  Sierra is incredibly intelligent and has adapted quickly to her new living situation she knows sit, down, and come. She will do best in a home with GSD experience, one that is familiar with fear reactivity, and one that will provide a structured environment.  She has a proclivity to barrier reactivity and overly bonding to handler and can exhibit a negative reaction. Sierra will be attending board and train soon which will help work on her insecurities and become the amazing and obedient companion she can be.  This will be a huge plus for any adopter since Sierra's training package will come with her at adoption and the adopter will follow up with the private and group lessons that are paid for by MAGSR and if there are any setbacks the adopter can go back to training free of charge for the life of the dog!  Sierra continues to make progress everyday and an update will be posted upon completion of the board and train.  Sierra is a diamond in the ruff and will make the perfect addition to the right family.


Update:

Howdy folks, I have completed my board and train and am ready to WOW my future family with my skillz.  During training I met some cool humans who reminded me that being confident is good and that will benefit me in the long haul but being overly demanding and pushy is not the way to get what I want.  I had previously fought the leash and commands but now I know through consistency, repetition, leash pressure, hand signals and verbal commands what is being asked of me.  When communication is clear to me from my handler I excel.  Another thing I learned while at training was that being alone is okay and that I do not need to throw myself into a tizzy when people leave me.  Actually, I can be content to just chew my favorite bully stick or marrow bone in peace.  I still require a crate to help make me feel safe but it's not a bad place and I know now that bad things will not happen to me.  As for other dogs, I tolerate them but being the dominant dog that I am, if they do try to overstep the boundary, I react negatively.  This is why I do prefer to be the only child..... I mean dog.  Speaking of children I'm not sure what these creatures are but they make loud and unpredictable movements which scare me and when I'm afraid I revert back to my old habit of reacting.  At my young impressionable age I was not shown kindness or socialized with people and I'm just now figuring out that these humans can be good to me.  I am a snuggle bug but I will not get on furniture, I will however, lean into you and immediately roll on my back for belly rubs. I do that thing I hear the humans talk about, bonding.  I'm the epitome of the velcro dog and in a home environment I just need to know the human is in charge and I can follow their lead.  My intelligence, loyalty, confidence and affectionate personality are what draw humans to me but you need to know what your doing, or at least that's what I overheard the trainer humans say.  I will give you my very best when clearly communicated to, I need a handler who can give me structure, time, consistency and love.  When you adopt me you have the unique opportunity to complete my private training lessons and group lessons free of charge.  The quote "with great power, comes great responsibility" and that is precisely what you are being given with me.  Are you up to the challenge?

History: Abuse/Neglect

Good With Kids: Yes, older kids
Good With Cats: Unknown
Other Dogs OK: Yes

Tasha and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

*Update* Tasha’s fosters are thrilled that this precious girl is heartworm free!  She is looking for a forever home where she can enjoy company most of the day with hugs and head-to-head snuggling.  She’s a low to moderate energy GSD and is gentle in all ways.  While she has not shown much interest in other dogs, her fosters continue to work on her socialization skills.   She enjoys walks that give her opportunities to sniff and stroll and is not affected at all by other passing dogs.   Training also continues as we all work together on basic commands.

Tasha is a survivor. After being horribly neglected, she was dumped at a vet with her two pups where the entire family was to be euthanized. Fortunately, another rescue learned of this little family's plight and was able to save them in time. Tasha's puppies were able to find families quickly. However, Tasha needed some additional care as her body had endured significant neglect. 

With the help of another rescue, Tasha was nursed back to health. She received the medical care and kindness that this beautiful girl so clearly deserved. Although Tasha has experienced cruelty at the hands of people, she remains loving and attentive. She enjoys the comforts of a soft bed and head rubs. Although we are still learning about this lovely girl, she amazes us with her sweet temperament. If Tasha sounds like the right match for your household, please ask to meet her today. 

Update:

Tasha has made significant progress since her arrival at MAGSR. She is affectionate with her people and has learned to enjoy toys and treats. A big fan of snuggles, Tasha is more than happy to bury her head in your lap just to get some extra love. Although playful, Tasha is not a high energy dog. She enjoys play time and outings but is also content to hang out with her people. As is typical of most GSDs, once comfortable, Tasha will protect her household and property. Not all shepherds want to socialize with people outside of their immediate family. Although Tasha is a friendly girl and does well out and about, she may do best being put away when visitors come to the house. Training will go a long way with Tasha as it will teach her to look to the handler for direction and leadership. Tasha is looking for a family that will commit to her for a lifetime. If Tasha sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet her today.


Update:

Tasha is a sweet girl who immediately wanted to be with her new foster parents. When we are in different parts of the house, she often plops downs at the vantage point allowing her to keep tabs on both of us.  Of course she may just be afraid of missing a meal!  But “head cuddles” are very satisfying to both parties.  She is fine being crated at night as long as we leave a light on, but would probably be happier as close as possible to her people. Her walks throughout the day sometimes lets her meet new people—passing trucks and exuberant dogs, not so fun. 

Walking on a lead is coming along nicely. Tasha is also still learning what she needs to know to be a polite, safe member of the household. She is low energy now, but as she gets healthier I’m sure she will find the happier, more active Tasha inside. 


Update:

Tasha shows her sweet, gentle personality even in adversity, such as when she’s had a tough vet appointment.  She has been a lovely roommate, and is starting to sit before being invited outside or getting her food and she comes when she is called.   Tasha seems very happy to meet people, but due to heartworm restrictions on activities, we have not yet tried to socialize her with other dogs, cats, or babies.  Though the heart worm treatment has meant she is to stay calm and quiet, it seems fine with her. Tasha has finished her heartworm treatment and we are getting back into walks although, keeping them short and slow for now.  Tasha has not expressed any interest in toys, but she likes to keep track of her foster parents.  She is easy to walk on a leash, and seems ok to be crated at night, especially now that she knows our schedule and can count on us to let her out in the morning.  She’s a beautiful, darling girl.

Well socialized in her foster home, Tia is a match for a household with kids, cats, or other dogs. Although Tia's foster family has given her an excellent start, it is imperative that they continue to keep Tia well socialized. This will help her develop into a stable adult. Although Tia is absolutely adorable, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics, they get into things, and they will chew on inappropriate items. With time, patience, and training, Tia will develop into the good canine citizen that we know she is destined to become. If this little girl sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet her today.

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Zinnia and her little family were dumped and forced to fend for themselves. Fortunately, a good samaritan found this little group of puppies and quickly brought them to the safety of a shelter. Although they presented as typical puppies on arrival, unfortunately, within a few days these babies broke with parvo. This horrifying virus takes so many young lives too soon. An immediate plea was sent out for help. With the support of an amazing team of veterinarians and a kind donor, MAGSR was able to get this little family the help they needed. Against the odds, all three little fighters survived. 

Having survived parvo, Zinnia is a super puppy. She cannot ever contract this horrible disease again. Ready to move onto a life of love, cuddles, and safety, Zinnia cannot wait to meet her forever family.

Although Zinnia is beyond sweet, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require an endless amount of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics, get into things, and chew on inappropriate items. With time, patience, guidance, and training, Zinnia will develop into the good canine citizen we know she is destined to become. If Zinnia sounds like the right match for your family, please ask to meet her today.
