Apollo and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Apollo's owner loved him greatly but struggled to keep him safe and in the household. As a result, Apollo spent too much time wandering about the neighborhood and checking in with the neighbors.  Unfortunately, this resulted in too many trips to animal control. Due to his frequent visits, Animal Control decided that Apollo would be safer if he moved forward with a new family. 

Apollo is a big, sweet guy. Although it is clear that he has not had a lot of structure prior to his arrival, he is a quick learner and seems to prefer a calm yet confident handler. Apollo has lived with a couple of cats and has done well with them. He seems unaffected by their presence and is calm with them around. Having met a variety of dogs in his travels, Apollo has made it clear that he can live peacefully with another dog. However, he is not a big fan of high-energy dogs who get in his face. We can't blame him for setting his boundaries. Apollo is looking for a forever home that will provide him with the guidance and routine that will help him thrive. He will benefit greatly from training with his new family. This will not only help him bond to his new family but it will also help him develop the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. If your household is looking for a big, laid back guy, ask to meet Apollo today!

Update:

Apollo continues to be a laid back and affectionate guest.  As you can tell by the shot of him on my bed he is one LARGE bed warmer but space can be at a premium.  He enjoys several walks a day and averages between two and three miles, which may account for his being laid back most of the day.  As the weather has gotten cooler he tends to spend less time lounging in the back yard and more time on his day bed or on the rug.  He now beats me to bed, but does give me room to get in!  He is almost like a GSD in that he will follow you from room to room and as the other shot shows, he will put his head up on the corner of your chair to make sure you know he is there.  Other than occasionally getting a little testy with oncoming strange dogs while on walks, he takes correction well and we are working on it.  He is just a good buddy and has made a boatload of friends around the neighborhood.

Banksy and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Beautiful Bansky was found wandering around an apartment complex. He was clearly cold, starving, and in need of immediate help. Fortunately, a good Samaritan found Banksy and did what they could to help him. Bringing him to a shelter, they hoped that Banksy would find his forever family. Although he waited for his family to come and claim him, no one came forward for this sweet boy. Unfortunately, the shelter, like so many others, is sitting at critical capacity. As a result, Banksy needed out and fast. Knowing he would need a little help gaining weight, MAGSR pulled Banksy as soon as we heard his story. 

Banksy is in many ways your typical young shepherd. He is curious, energetic, and loves his people. This little honey was incredibly fortunate to have joined an incredible foster family that is teaching him the ins and outs of living in a home. They have already begun housebreaking and are excited to see that he is so intelligent. Getting extra, high-quality food, Banksy is now getting the nutrition needed to fill his belly and help him grow. As Banksy moves forward, this guy will be looking for a forever family that will provide him with structure, routine, and leadership as this will help him thrive. His forever family will also need to ensure that Banksy has plenty of opportunities to socialize with other people, animals, and in new environments. This will help Banksy as he develops into a stable and confident adult. Training will also go a long way with this little honey. Not only will training help Banksy create a forever bond with his family, but it will also help him develop the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. Banksy is looking for an active family who will give him endless opportunities to meet with success. If he sounds like the perfect match for your family, ask to meet handsome Banksy today!

Beetlejuice and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Beetlejuice is a big, friendly boy who was picked up in the south as a stray. He was brought to an overcrowded shelter where he waited for his family to claim him. Although Beetlejuice waited patiently for his family, no one came to claim him. When no one stepped forward, he, like so many others, was moved to the euthanasia room as shelters simply cannot keep up with the number of animals arriving at their door on a daily basis. As a big, goofy, playful guy, we knew Beetlejuice deserved a forever family that would cherish him for a lifetime. So, our team moved quickly and succeeded in welcoming Beetlejuice to the safety of the MAGSR family just before his time was up. 

Beetlejuice is one handsome guy. As a young and energetic boy, he is looking for an active forever family that loves adventures. It is critical that Beetlejuices' forever family not only exercise his body, but that they also exercise his mind on a daily basis. This will help him remain a balanced and happy guy. Throughout his time at the shelter, Beetlejuice regularly attended play groups, and he enjoyed his furry companions. He has likely been socialized well with other dogs. As is true of all shepherds, Beetlejuice is looking for a family that will provide him with structure, routine, and leadership. In addition, Beetlejuice is looking forward to participating in training. Training will not only help Beetlejuice build a strong and healthy relationship with his forever family, but it will also help him develop the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. 

Unfortunately, we have learned that Beetlejuice is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if his people had provided him with monthly heartworm prevention. We have already begun the first steps of Beetlejuice's treatment. However, he will need a few months to rest and recover. Heartworm treatment is expensive, but Beetlejuice is clearly worth the cost. Please consider donating to his care as, in doing so, you not only help Beetlejuice move forward, but you also help us continue to welcome dogs with medical needs. Beetlejuice is a goofy guy who is looking for a family that will commit to him for a lifetime, could that be with you?

Bicaro and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Bicaro and his buddy, Lil Bit, were taken to a shelter in the south. The boys were starving and had tried filling their bellies with a meal of chicken and duck from the property. Rather than provide them with the food and care they needed, they were punished for attempting to survive. Taken to an overcrowded shelter, the boys were soon placed on the list to be euthanized. Local groups were watching and sent out a plea for help to the rescue community. Both boys are incredibly sweet and did not deserve to lose their lives. Although groups up and down the coast were contacted, many rescues simply do not have the capacity to welcome more dogs. At the last minute, MAGSR learned about the boys' likely fate. We were exceptionally lucky to be able to collaborate with another incredible GSD rescue - All Shepherd Rescue - so that both Bicaro and his buddy, Lil Bit, could move forward within rescue families. Lil Bit would join All Shepherd Rescue and Bicaro would join MAGSR. 

The boys began their journey into the rescue world with a much needed stop at the vet. Then, they moved into a temporary foster home while they waited for a freedom flight to the mid-Atlantic. Although the boys waited patiently for this last step on their journey toward rescue, the morning of their flight, Bicaro bloated and was rushed to an emergency vet. With an emaciated frame, heartworm positive status, frostbitten ears, and bloat, we knew that Bicaro was in for the fight of his life. However, we also knew that Bicaro deserved the love and care that he had been denied for so many years. MAGSR is fighting with Bicaro and he is incredibly lucky to have a large team of volunteers from various groups on his side. Bloat, also known as gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV) complex, is a life-threatening condition that requires immediate emergency surgery. You can learn more about Bloat HERE. Bicaro survived his surgical procedure and is now being monitored by an emergency vet where he is receiving around the clock care. Although his surgery went well, Bicaro's fight is not over. He will need significant support moving forward and we are hoping that his body continues to heal. Please consider donating to Bicaro's care. Your donations are a critical part of our mission to improve the lives of dogs in need.

Lenith and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Lenith and his siblings - Leah 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.

Lenith and his 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 adorable pups grow up into stable and confident adults. Although Lenith and his siblings are beyond cute, 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 guy like Lenith, ask to meet him today!

Update:

This little dynamo is not just a pup; he's a vibrant bundle of joy with a soft, short coat that adds to his overall charm. Leon's boundless energy is a testament to his health and zest for life .

As with all puppies, Leon is on a journey of discovery, eagerly embracing the world around him. We've been diligently working on house and crate training, boosting his confidence, and instilling basic commands. He's proving to be a quick learner, having already mastered the art of sitting and lying down.

But what truly sets Leon apart is his affectionate nature. This little guy is a total cuddle bug, seeking out love with a gentle lean and always yearning for pets and praise. His ultimate goal? Making his owners happy, a testament to his sweet and eager-to-please personality. Plus, Leon is a food enthusiast, which makes training sessions a breeze – he's all ears when there's a treat involved.

Leon's social skills are blossoming as he interacts gently with our neighbor's children. Although he may be a tad shy in new environments or with unfamiliar faces, his endearing playfulness shines through when he engages with toys and frolics with his foster fur-sister.

Are you ready to embark on the exciting adventure of welcoming Leon into your life? If you're up for the challenge of meeting his physical and mental needs through daily exercise, stimulation, and training, then this charismatic puppy is eagerly waiting to meet you. Apply today, and let Leon bring boundless joy and love to your home!

Louis V 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. Dior has an independent and fun-loving personality. She can hold her own in the group and can be a little sassy. This girl will definitely fill your home with giggles. 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 Dior sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet this sweetheart today!

Marmaduke and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Marmaduke is a little fighter. Having wandered up to a home with his brother the puppies were sick, filled with worms, underfed, dirty, and in need of help. Luckily the boys wandered up to the right home as the owners immediately contacted their local animal services so they could work together to get the boys everything they needed. Although appointments were put into place and rescuers were contacted for help, Marmaduke's brother passed away during the night on their second night. Recognizing that the boys were sicker than anyone realized, Marmaduke was rushed to the vet. Although everyone was hoping their worst fears were not true, unfortunately, Marmaduke popped positive for parvovirus. This disease is preventable with proper vaccinations. However, once it sets in it can take many lives. Having lost his brother and weak from everything the two had endured, we were not sure if Marmaduke would have the strength to fight. However, we also knew this little guy deserved every chance make a full recovery. So, MAGSR began working with the local shelter, a local foster, and an incredible veterinary team to ensure that Marmaduke was provided with everything he needed. As is true of many dogs suffering from parvo, Marmaduke did need to be admitted for round-the-clock care. 

Fortunately, our little fighter clearly wants to survive and has done well with the support provided. He has been released from the hospital and one of our amazing foster families has welcomed him into their home. Although this is a huge step, Marmaduke is still being monitored very closely and is receiving daily medical support. We are hoping that he continues to rest and recover so that when he is ready, this sweet and affectionate guy will find a forever family that will cherish him for a lifetime. As is true of all parvo puppies, Marmaduke's care is expensive. However, MAGSR knows that he is worth every penny. Please consider donating to Marmaduke's medical needs. Not only will this help us continue to meet his needs, but it will also help us continue to welcome dogs who would not have survived without extensive medical intervention. 

Marmaduke is a special guy who has already survived more than he should have at such a young age. Our entire team is hoping he keeps fighting so that, when he is ready, he can live out his life with an incredible forever family.

Update:

The puppy of the century!!! We absolutely love him! What an amazing doggo!

He is house trained.

Mattis and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Mattis was adopted out as a puppy from MAGSR. He attended puppy classes and grew into a big and intelligent guy. Mattis' family could no longer provide him with the type of care, attention, and living conditions that he needed to thrive. As a result, he was returned to the MAGSR so that we could find him the perfect forever family. We promised Mattis that we would find the right place for him as he moves forward. 

Mattis is a big, handsome, and intelligent guy. Unfortunately, his medical needs were not addressed as expected so he arrived back in our care needing some support. With unaddressed skin issues, Mattis was very uncomfortable and required immediate veterinary support. We have begun working with our amazing vetting partners to help soothe Mattis' skin and bring him relief. He is receiving medication and baths and is already showing improvements. As we determine the root cause of Mattis' skin condition, we will make sure that he remains comfortable moving forward. 

Having lived in a household, Mattis understands many of the ins and outs of living in a home. He is housebroken and crate trained. However, as is true of any new dog, he will need time to adjust to the expectations and routines of his forever family. With some more prominent classic GSD traits, such as guarding of the property, Mattis will thrive in a home that provides him with structure, routine, and leadership. Clearly responsive to a calm and confident handler, Mattis is looking for a more experienced household that understands the breed. Although we are beginning to provide Mattis with an understanding of basic commands, it is essential that his forever family takes him to training. Training will not only help Mattis develop into a good canine citizen, but it will also help him develop a strong, healthy bond with his forever family. Mattis is looking for a loving and active household that will keep him safe and loved. Could that family be you?

Update:

Mattis has been in foster for 3 weeks now.  He comes when called,  is very aware of the house rules, and he gets along with his housemates.   He is good walking on a leash in the neighborhood but is still a little afraid of trash cans, not noises or cars.


Update:

Mattis is doing very well in his foster home.  He knows all his basic commands (sit, down, come, touch, stay) and is working on reliably doing them when asked.  He loves training time, so I'm sure he'll learn in no time flat.  He does very well in a home with clear communication and lots of structure.  In our home, he takes corrections very well, learns quickly, respects boundaries set by the humans, and is probably the most well behaved house guest we've had to date.  He's crate trained, good on the leash, calm with dogs and small animals on walks, and allows our bossy resident GSD to be the one in charge.  He's a bit more mouthy than is ideal, so we're working on that.  He's not allowed on furniture in our home, but he's made it clear he'd love to snuggle on the couch if allowed.  All in all, this boy is a big cuddle bug who is working on learning he's too big to be a lap dog.  Think this very special boy might be a good fit for you?  Check out the videos of him working on recall and playing gently with his toy!

DESCRIPTION:

Magic Mikey’ was a well loved family member, but due to some changes to the family, this poor fella found himself in an unfamiliar situation and in need of a new home.  He is a beautiful, healthy and lively 3-year old GSD mix that did very well in his previous home with strangers, kids and other dogs, but as with most young dogs, tested the boundaries.  He is potty trained (uses his muzzle to let you know he has to go out), is crate trained and loves his people.  As we get to know him a little more, he would do very well with additional training and would excel as he is more than eager to please…Magic Mikey is eager to find the right FUR-ever family, and to lead him through the proper training and would thrive in a home where his family is either familiar with German Shepherds or is eager to learn about the temperament of the breed while providing the essentials -  training, structure, boundaries, routines, and continued guidance.

If ‘MAGIC MIKEY’ sounds like the wonderful moments you would like to emBARK upon, please ask to add him to your family today!

Obie and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Obie was picked up as a stray in the south and brought to a shelter where he waited patiently for his family to come and claim him. Unfortunately, no one stepped forward for this handsome guy. So, he waited patiently for a new family of his very own. As he waited, shelter staff fell in love with this boy. His happy-go-lucky personality and unending tail wags bring smiles to everyone he meets. Although shelters everywhere are struggling with overwhelming numbers of animals in need, Obie was incredibly lucky when shelter staff endlessly advocated for him to keep him alive and wait for the right placement. Unlike so many others, Obie was protected and waited for 6 months at the shelter for placement. When we learned that Obie needed a chance with a rescue that would make his wish come true, we knew this boy would find success with MAGSR. Obie's incredible team came together for him and made sure that he had the vetting needed and volunteers in place to make his journey to the mid-Atlantic and join MAGSR. We promised all of his fans that we would find him a forever home that would adore him forever. 

Obie is a joyful guy. He is active, energetic, friendly, and ready for an adventure. Having done well with other dogs at the shelter, Obie was a good doggy tester and read situations well. We do not know anything about Obie's past prior to his arrival at the shelter, but we do know that this boy was well-socialized with people and in many environments. Obie seems to go with the flow remarkably well for a dog that has been through so many changes. At this time Obie is settling in with one of our amazing foster families. They are giving him opportunities to interact with new people, play with toys, and experience the joy and comfort of a loving home. Obie, like all of our dogs, will benefit from structure, routine, and leadership. Set expectations and guidance will help him thrive. Although Obie has an endless list of positive attributes, he will need to work on his leash manners. He is so excited about the world that he can forget to walk with his people and tries to pull ahead. Training will be critical to Obie's success. Not only will training help Obie develop a special bond with his family, but it will also help Obie develop into a good canine citizen. If your family is looking for a happy-go-lucky, adventurous guy, ask to meet outstanding Obie today!

Update:

He is the happiest, friendliest, easiest dog ever. He gets along with every person and dog he's met!

DESCRIPTION:

Full-loving Patterson is the life of the party. This handsome guy was picked up as a stray in the south. Although he waited for his family to reclaim him, no one came forward. Shelter staff immediately recognized that this goofy boy would be an incredible candidate for a loving home so that placed him up for adoption. Patterson waited patiently again for the right family. However, with overwhelming numbers of animals entering the shelter every day, Patterson was on borrowed time. Staff members did everything they could to help Patterson find a loving forever home. Unfortunately, many dogs come into shelters over capacity but fewer make it out. At the last second we learned about Patterson's likely fate. Fortunately, with the help of some other groups, we were able to bring this guy to safety so that he can find the adoring forever family we know is waiting for him. 

Patterson is a friendly fellow who has earned the title social butterfly in playgroups. He seems to expertly avoid conflicts within groups and makes fast friends with other canine companions. A master gamer, this boy can turn just about anything into a game guaranteeing endless laughter and entertainment. Known for his delightful zoomie sessions, Patterson is a nice mix of playfulness and affection. True of most shepherds, Patterson likes to take a second to initiate new relationships with people. However, once comfortable, he is friendly and silly with his people. An energetic guy, this boy is looking for an active family that will help him exercise both his body and his mind on a daily basis. Playful and silly, Patterson tries to find the fun in all situations. It is important that his forever family provide him with the structure, routine, and leadership needed to meet with success. With time, patience, structure, and training, we know Patterson will meet with success. If you are looking for an adventurous guy to bring endless laughs and a good snuggle into your home, ask to meet Patterson today!

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Sheppy was picked up as a stray and brought to a local shelter where he waited patiently for his family to come and claim him. Although he waited, no one came forward for Sheppy. Shelter staff were surprised as this social guy was clearly comfortable with people and did well around other dogs. Recognizing that Sheppy deserved a family that would love him for a lifetime, he was placed on the adoption floor and started looking for a match but with so many dogs looking for homes, he didn't find his match. Recognizing that shepherds are often more successful when adopted out through a breed specific rescue, Sheppy was transferred to the MAGSR family. We are excited to be able to help Sheppy move forward and find the perfect forever family.

Sheppy is a friendly and playful guy. He is a big fan of plushy toys and hopes that his forever family has plenty of them in the household. Sheppy has done a nice job in a large shelter and seems comfortable with other dogs. However, as is true of many shepherds, Sheppy has high-drive. He is looking for a household without cats or other small animals. Although clearly socialized with people, Sheppy did not receive the training needed to meet with success. He will need to learn leash manners and the importance of keeping his paws on the ground. Fortunately, our team has already begun working with Sheppy so that he better understands the ins and outs of becoming a good canine citizen. Training is essential for Sheppy's success. Training will not only help Sheppy develop a strong, healthy bond with his forever family, but it will also help him develop the skills needed to become a stable and confident canine citizen. Sheppy is looking for a forever family that will provide him with routine, structure, patience, and leadership. This set-up is crucial for success with all shepherds. If you are looking for an active, playful, and intelligent guy, look no further than Sheppy!

Simba and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Stunning Simba is the father of the Fall puppies - Autumn, Cider, Ember, Maple, Pumpkin, and Sweet Potato (Tator). These babies were an accidental litter that was raised with their parents. Although his human family loved him, it can be difficult to properly train, care for, and provide adequate stimulation for a large number of dogs. Recognizing that this family would be most successful if placed within a breed specific rescue, their family contacted MAGSR. With a no family left behind policy, we did not think twice when asked to take dad along with the Fall puppies. MAGSR has promised to find every member of this family a safe and loving forever home that will cherish them for a lifetime. 

Simba moved into the rescue a few weeks ago. As he was not given the opportunity to socialize outside of his family and had been exposed to a child who was not treating him appropriately, we placed him with an experienced foster family. Not only is this family able to provide Simba with opportunities to socialize in controlled settings and with new people and animals, but they are also able to provide Simba with training. Training, as is true with all dogs, is key to Simba's success. One of our training partners, Mason Dixon K9, has already begun Simba's program. This is helping him develop the confidence and stability needed to move forward. As he continues to move forward with a family of his very own, MDK9 has committed to providing Simba with a lifetime of support. Simba is lucky to have so many people in his corner. 

Simba is a very intelligent and active guy. He's also a sweetheart who loves a good cuddle. He is looking for a forever family that will provide him with an appropriate balance of exercise, playtime, and snuggles. It is critical that Simba's family provide him with daily opportunities to exercise both his body and his mind. This will help him maintain a stable presence in his forever home. In addition, Simba's family will need to infuse structure, routine, and leadership into their daily interactions. This set-up is essential for the success of all GSDs. Simba is waiting patiently to find the right match, could that be with you?

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Storm lived in a home. However, due to an issue with the landlord, he was surrendered to a local shelter. Although shepherds typically struggle in shelters, Storm is special as he remained friendly and affectionate with staff. Recognizing that Storm deserved every chance to find a loving forever family, staff began searching for a shepherd rescue that would help this boy on his journey. Working with us to find the right circumstances to welcome Storm, the shelter staff provided this guy with the safety and security needed to move forward. 

Storm is a friendly and playful guy. He has handled all of the changes in his life like a champ. However, it is important that Storm's forever family recognize that he has been through a lot and will need time to adjust to his forever home. Having moved into an incredible foster home, Storm has been enjoying the comforts of a soft bed and calm environment. He has quickly charmed his foster family. As Storm continues to move forward, he will thrive with structure, routine, and leadership. This is typical of all GSDs. Training will go a long way with this boy. Not only will training help Storm develop a strong and healthy bond with his forever family, but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. 

While at the shelter, staff noticed some concerns with Storms hips. They took the important steps of getting him to a vet who began running tests and x-rays. It was discovered that Storm has severe hip dysplasia. At this time his right hip is of greatest concern. However, an injury to his cruciate ligament was also found within Storm's right knee. By the time he was seen, he had already lost a lot of muscle around his hips and legs. Storm has begun to receive the care he needs to move forward. He is being monitored by our incredible vetting team while we rebuild muscle. He will also begin working with an orthopedic specialist in order to determine next steps for an orthopedic repair. Storm's care will be very expensive; however, we know he is more than worth the cost. Please consider donating to his medical needs. Your donation will not only help us continue to move Storm forward, but it will also help us continue to support medical dogs in need. Storm will be taking it slow over the next few months while we help him heal. Please continue to watch for updates on his care.
