Anna and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Anna and her siblings, Jodie and Teddy Bear, were brought to a shelter when their owner passed away. Unfortunately, it was apparent that their owner had been struggling to care for these dogs for a while. Fearful and avoidant in the shelter environment, this little family needed out and fast. Knowing we could provide this family with the life and love they deserve, MAGSR welcomed them to the family.
Anna is a sweet little lady but she is extremely timid. Somewhat hand-shy and avoidant, Anna does well with a patient but confident handler who will give her time to trust. Once comfortable and with time to decompress, she will warm up for love and attention. Due to the condition in which she arrived, Anna has needed a little extra TLC. She arrived sick with an URI, severe ear infection, and dirty from lack of care. Fortunately, our amazing vetting partners were able to help Anna get the relief she needed. We are continuing to work with them to make sure that Anna has everything she needs as she moves forward. With time, patience, and a little support, Anna is making steady progress. Anna will thrive in a household that will provide structure, routine, and patience. Due to her history, she will likely benefit from a calm and confident household.
Unfortunately, we have discovered that Anna is heartworm positive. This condition could have been avoided had she been provided monthly heartworm preventatives. We have already begun Anna's treatment. The cost of her entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but this lovely girl is beyond worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Jodie's treatment. Your generosity will help us save her and other dogs with medical needs. Although Anna will need to take it slow over the next few months while she undergoes treatment, this will give her time to adjust to her new environment and meet with success in her forever home. Anna is looking for a forever family that will provide her with the structure, patience, and love that she so clearly deserves. Could this be with you?Update:
Ms. Anna is a special girl. She is very sweet but very shy, and she generally prefers dogs to people – so she’s pretty smart! She’s been in her foster home for a few months getting over her heartworm, and she has come a very long way from the distant, tail-tucked, and fearful girl that first arrived with us. She’s needed the time to get comfortable with her human foster, while in the interim she relied on her foster sister, to whom she bonded almost instantly. Anna has a different way of communicating with people than folks expect from a dog. Her positive signals can be subtle and easy to miss or misinterpret, and she prefers the familiar, routine, and relies on the confidence of her “big sister,” to be comfortable and happy. She is a lovely animal, and it is a pleasure to see her relax and enjoy her life, and she is ready to move on. But Anna is not for everybody. Anna will need a sensitive and patient person, who ideally has a sweet confident dog, that can give Anna the space and time she’ll need to build the human bond. It will be easier for her going forward, now that she’s learned to trust someone. But her new family will need to love Anna on her terms. Please reach out if you feel you can give Anna the special love she needs.
Annika and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Annika was returned to MAGSR's care after incidents with the other dog of the household, as well as the cat. She will be looking for a forever family where she can be the sole animal in the home to be the center of attention.
Annika is a beautiful young adult with a big personality. She is extremely intelligent and observant of her environment. She also forms strong bonds with her humans and is very affectionate. Annika will be protective of the house once she sees it as her place. She will thrive with a confident handler and structured training to bring out her potential, because she lives for meaningful interactions with her people. She is active and a jumper, and may be a candidate for agility training or other activities that engage her intelligence.
She loves tummy rubs and affection, walks, and interactive games. She learns quickly when pepperoni treats are on hand, and will even play a good game of hide and seek the treat. Annika likes her crate and is fully house trained. She walks well on the leash, learns commands quickly, loves car rides and exploring new environments like trails and parks.
If sweet Annika sounds like the right match for your family, please ask to meet her today.
Crimson and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
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.
Hello everyone this is Crimson... Here's a little update: I've been with my foster daddies for 5 months now. At the beginning it was all new to me. I had a little trouble going up and down the steps but I quickly learned my zig zag move and have no more problems. I'm excited to tell every one I have not 1 but 2 beds to call my own and I enjoy both of them very much. I love watching my big screen TV aka the windows, its always on and always interesting. I get to go on several walks a day in the park across from my foster home. I have learned how to potty in the back yard and I'm pleased to inform every one I have made a couple of friends. My foster daddies take very good care of me. I have learned a few tricks as well. I'm so happy, I sleep wherever I want., especially beside my foster dad's chair and get plenty of love. I want to thank everyone for the love and continued support and hope to find my forever home soon <3
Crimson adores kids, she will pull her foster towards kids at the park. She loves getting attention from the kids.
Jesamine and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Jesamine and her four sisters - Jesalyn, Jesenya, Jesibel, and Jesirae - were found by a good samaritan on the side of the road. Thinking these babies were likely dumped, this kind person collected them all and brought them to an animal clinic to make sure they were safe and healthy. Once medically cleared the pups were taken to a shelter to wait out their stray hold. Although these girls are playful and interactive, the shelter is no place for babies. When asked if we could help these little ladies move forward, we immediately made arrangements to welcome them into the MAGSR family.
Jesamine is playful, energetic and cute as a button. Within the safety of the MAGSR family, this little girl is just starting to learn about the joys of good food, a soft bed, and a loving household. Jesamine is ready to move forward with a forever family that will provide her with the love, care, and attention that this little pup so clearly deserves. Although Jesamine is an absolute doll, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy energy which results in endless puppy antics. They will get into things, whine, and will chew on inappropriate items. With time, training, patience, and socialization, Jesamine will develop into the good canine citizen we know she is destined to become. Jesamine is looking for a forever home that will commit to her for a lifetime. Could that be with you?
Jesibel and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

Jesibel is adorable, playful and intelligent. Within the safety of the MAGSR family, this little girl is just starting to learn about the joys of good food, a soft bed, and a loving household. Jesibel is ready to move forward with a forever family that will provide her with the love, care, and attention that this little pup so clearly deserves.

Puppies are full of puppy energy which results in endless puppy antics. They will get into things, whine, and will chew on inappropriate items. With time, training, patience, and socialization, Jesibel will develop into the good canine citizen we know she is destined to become. Jesibel is looking for a forever home that will commit to her for a lifetime. Could that be with you?Update:
Jesibel may be the smallest of her sisters but she is also the bravest and smartest! Only two days in and she is learning to ask to go outside to potty. We positively reinforce proper bathroom habits and she is very food motivated--she's even tried to "fake pee" for her treat! A champ for nail trimmings and baths, she is an easy house guest, especially for a 9 week old puppy! She enjoys play wrestling with our resident cat and will run to Jesamine's aid if she thinks the cat has gained the upper hand. She is also a grade A snuggle bug who loves to be as close to you as possible. Sometimes the noises she makes convince me she is more Gremlin than German Shepherd, but it really just increases her cute factor. She is going to be such a cool dog as she grows into her personality and discovers the world around her!
Lacy and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Lacy was surrendered to us due to a baby on the way and there would be no room for Lacy. It is obvious she was not well cared for as she came to us obese, weighing 107 lbs. and should only weigh around 70 lbs. She also came to us with a skin infection and some fur loss, which our vet feels is caused by lack of care and poor quality food. She is being treated for the skin infection, put on a diet, good quality food, along with exercise that she obviously did not get in her last home. She is settling into her foster home and dealing with the changes of her new life. She is confused with some whining, but that is expected with the changes. She is very sweet and friendly with everyone she has met.
Hi everyone, meet Lacy! Lacy is super sweet with humans and children. She is almost six years old, knows some basic commands, and loves to fetch! She also likes to play soccer, chew on Nylabones and be with her people. She does have a skin allergy that requires daily medicine. Lacy is on a weight management plan so she can slim down a few pounds (summer is coming and she really wants a two piece swimsuit). Lacy is scared of bicycles and golf carts. She is housebroken and crate trained. If you are looking for a furry co worker to rest in a dog bed while you work, play some low key fetch on breaks, go for a short stroll after work or on lunch break, Lacy is the dog for you!!! Lacy has a propensity to resource guard and protect from other dogs (unsure about cats) so she would be best as an only dog. If you have any questions let me know!
Monica and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Monica, her mom, and her six siblings - Amy, Joe, Mikey, Jill, Phoebe, and Rachael - were dumped on a country road in the south. Covered in ringworm, emaciated, and clearly not well cared for, this little family needed help and quickly. Fortunately, a good samaritan found this family and got them to the safety of a shelter. Although shelter staff did a wonderful job getting this family the help they needed, they knew that moms and puppies do not belong in a shelter environment. As a result, a rescue plea went out. When we heard that this little family needed help, MAGSR immediately stepped forward.
Monica's friendly, affectionate, and playful. She is everything that a puppy should be. Although this little girl is a joy, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy energy and antics. They get into things, whine, and will chew on inappropriate items. With time, patience, and training, Monica will develop into the good canine citizen we know she is destined to become. Monica is looking for a loving forever household that will commit to her for a lifetime. If your family is looking for puppy kisses, antics, and wiggles, please ask to meet Monica today.Update:
What can I say about my beautiful foster Monica. She is crate trained and 99% house trained. She is a super sweet cuddleable dog that just wants everybody's attention all the time. She loves to sleep with us and she is definitely my foot warmer. If it's a cold winter night who doesn't want some Monica loving she's like your own personal heating blanket. She is 100% a puppy and has lots of energy. She walks great on a leash and will heel next to you. I also love that she's very active so long walks or even runs if you're into that would be a big benefit for her. She lives with four other dogs and a cat and does well with all of them. She loves when we work on training and she's very focused oriented so using little training treats, she will do whatever you ask of her. If Monica sounds like a good fit for your family, ask to meet her today?
Sash and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Lovely Sash was adored by her family. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond their control, they could no longer continue to care for her. Recognizing that Sash deserved a family that could love her and keep her safe, they made the difficult decision to surrender her to MAGSR. We promised Sash's family that we would find Sash an amazing forever family.
Sash is a sweet girl. She is friendly and affectionate with people of all ages. Playful and a little goofy, Sash brings joy to those around her. Having lived in a household, Sash is familiar with the rules of living in a home. She is both house broken and crate trained. Although she will need to learn the new routines of her family, Sasha is ready to move forward. Having completed some training with her previous family, Sash knows many of her commands already. However, as is true of any new pup, Sash will benefit from additional training. This will help her not only develop into a stable and confident canine citizen, but it will also help her bond with her new family. If Sash sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet this delightful girl today.Update:
We have been fostering Sash for about 6 weeks now. She is a beautiful long-haired, floppy-eared girl. People often tell us how gorgeous she is. She bonded to our family very quickly. Sash is very affectionate and loves to snuggle. She is very gentle with our 6 year old son. Sash can be protective (of all of us) when other dogs get close, especially if we give those dogs attention. Due to this jealousy, she would do best as an only pet. Sash did not have much experience walking on a leash when we got her, but now she is generally very good, but will occasionally pull (and she is very strong). She loves to chew on bones and play with balls. Sash is extremely smart and food and treat motivated, which should make training fairly easy. Due to a skin condition, Sash requires regular baths with medicated shampoo. MAGSR has covered her veterinary care and her skin has vastly improved with us dutifully following her course of treatment. If you have room in your home and in your heart, ask to meet Sash today.
Shari and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Sweet Shari and her three babies - Jingle, Winkey, and Duran - were picked up as strays in a busy city. This lovely little family was taken to a shelter for safety. However, recognizing that a shelter is no place for a mom and her pups, shelter staff began reaching out for rescue help. When we heard their plea, MAGSR stepped in to help this sweet little family move forward in safety.
Shari is an absolute love. Everyone that has met this girl has fallen for her lovely personality. Friendly and interactive, Shari was clearly well socialized at one point in her life. Although living on the streets was not easy, Shari did a wonderful job making sure that she and her pups survived. Now that Shari is safe and is getting all of the care, food, and attention she needs, she is ready to move forward. Shari is looking for a loving forever family that will provide her with the structure, routine, and leadership that all GSDs crave. Training will go a long way with Shari. Not only will help her develop into a good canine citizen, but it will also help her bond with her forever family.
Unfortunately, we did find out that sweet Shari is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if her family had provided her with monthly prevention. Fortunately, we have already begun Shari's treatment. The cost of her entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Although heartworm treatment is expensive, lovely Shari is beyond worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Shari's treatment. Your generosity will help us save her and other dogs with medical needs. Although Shari will need to take it slow over the next few months while she undergoes treatment, this will give her time to adjust to her new environment and meet with success in her forever home. Shari is looking for a forever family that will commit to her for a lifetime, could this be with you?
Shortcake and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Lovely Shortcake was picked up as a stray and brought to a shelter. Unsure about the loud environment, Shortcake was shy with the shelter staff. However, they could tell that this little girl was a sweetheart that deserved a safe and loving forever family. Recognizing that Shortcake would not likely meet with success at the shelter, staff members began reaching out for help. MAGSR learned about Shortcake's need, and immediately welcomed her to the family.
Shortcake is an absolute doll. Although she needs a little time to warm up to new people and new situations, once comfortable, Shortcake vacillates between cuddle bug and playful pup. She is an excellent balance of young dog energy. A big fan of high-value treats, Shortcake quickly makes friends when something tasty is involved. Shortcake's treat motivation will not only provide an excellent motivator for socialization with new people, but it will also help her in training. Training will go a long way with Shortcake. It will help her bond to her forever family as well as provide the foundation needed to develop into a stable and confident adult. Shortcake is looking for a loving family that will provide her with the routine and structure that all GSDs crave. If you feel that your household is the right match for Shortcake, ask to meet this little love bug today.
Sissy and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Sweet Sissy is a survivor. She was picked up as a stray in the south with an embedded collar, missing fur, and highly emaciated. Animal control officers quickly recognized that Sissy had endured a significant amount of pain and suffering. However, despite all that she had experienced, Sissy remains a sweet girl. Officers worked hard to begin to help Sissy move forward while also looking for rescue placement for this girl. When MAGSR heard about Sissy's story, we immediately welcomed her to the family.
Sissy is beautiful, intelligent girl. Due to her history, she is unsure when placed in new environments and with new people. Sissy needs time to adjust to new situations. With time, patience, and routine, Sissy will warm up to her people. However, she will meet with most success with a stable and confident household. Still learning that people can be kind and caring, it is important that her forever family recognize that a go slow approach is necessary as Sissy moves forward. Training and continued socialization are imperative as Sissy moves forward. Not only will training help Sissy bond to her new family but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen. If Sissy sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet this sweetheart today.
Sugar Pie and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Sugar Pie arrived in a random backyard in the south in labor. Fortunately, the family whose yard she chose was kind to her but recognized that she needed help and fast. While they waited for a stray hold, they immediately started searching for rescue help. Once the hold lifted, we welcomed Sugar Pie and her babies to the MAGSR family. Although Sugar Pie is an amazing mom, she was sick upon arrival and lost several of her puppies. The remaining babies, Cake, Crumble, Cobber, Sundae, Tort, and Pudding, have been well cared for by their mom and are strong, healthy pups.
Sugar Pie is an absolute love. She is friendly and affectionate with her foster family. Although Sugar Pie's pups have already moved to Maryland to find their forever homes, she is remaining in the south a little longer. This is due to the fact that she has a very high heartworm load and it is safer for her to remain with the experienced foster family that she is currently living with. While waiting for her happy ending, Sugar Pie is getting all of the love, care, and attention she needs to move forward. Sugar Pie is being well socialized with people and other dogs. She is learning the joys of living in a safe home and having a warm bed. Sugar Pie's heartworm treatment has begun. Although treatment is very expensive, this lovely momma is beyond worth the cost. Sugar Pie's entire heartworm treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Donations toward her care are greatly appreciated as this will help us not only help Sugar Pie get all of the care that she needs, but it will also help us continue to support medical dogs in need. Sugar Pie will be ready for her new home soon. Would this lovely lady be the right match for you?
