DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Andrew was picked up as a stray and brought to a shelter. Although he waited for a family to come and claim him, no one stepped forward. Shelter staff loved Andrew's playful personality; however, as the shelter was overcapacity, they began reaching out to rescues for help. When MAGSR heard about Andrew, we knew he would be a great addition to the MAGSR family. 

Andrew is in many ways your typical, young, energetic shepherd. He is curious about the world and is learning about the joys of toys. Although we do not know anything about Andrew's past, it is clear that he is ready to move forward with his future. As is true of all young shepherds, Andrew will be most successful in a household with structure, routine, and consistent leadership. This will not only help him adjust to his new household, but it will also help him develop an understanding of the expectations of living in a home. In addition, Andrew will benefit greatly from training; training will help him develop the skills and strategies he needs to develop into a good canine citizen. 

Unfortunately, we have learned that Andrew is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if he had been given monthly heartworm preventatives. Andrew's heartworm treatment has begun. Although treatment is expensive, this handsome guy is definitely worth the cost. Please consider donating to Andrew's care. Your generosity will help us not only support Andrew throughout his heartworm treatment, but it will also help us support other dogs with medical needs. Although Andrew will need to take it slow over the next few months while he undergoes treatment, this will give him time to adjust to his new environment. Andrew is looking for a forever family that will commit to him for a lifetime. Could that family be you?

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.

Arrow and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Arrow's family had him since he was a puppy. He grew up with regular socialization with people and children. Although his family loved him greatly, they recognized that they could no longer provide him with the time, care, and exercise that he deserved. As a result, they made the difficult decision to surrender him to MAGSR. We promised Arrow's family that we would find him a safe and loving forever home.

Arrow is a big, beautiful boy. At close to 100lbs, Arrow is a large guy with a good amount of energy. Born into a litter where several of his siblings moved into working positions, Arrow is driven and intelligent. A typical ball dog, Arrow is more than happy to make sure that your throwing arm is in good shape. It is essential that his forever family make sure that they exercise Arrow's body and mind daily. This routine will help him effectively burn his energy. Although Arrow already knows several commands, training will be essential with his forever family. Not only will training help Arrow bond to his new family, but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. Arrow is looking for a family that will welcome him into their home with a solid routine and structure. If this interactive boy sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet him today.

Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 2 years

Blake and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Blake was picked up as a stray and brought to a shelter. Emaciated and in need of medical attention shelter staff did everything they could to help Blake move forward. Unfortunately, with very limited resources available and significant medical concerns present, staff members worried that Blake would not make it out alive as the shelter was quickly reaching capacity. Fortunately, several groups started reaching out to help Blake move into the safety of a rescue. MAGSR was able to pull Blake to safety just in time. 

Blake is a handsome and intelligent guy. It is apparent that he lived with a family as he knows several commands. He also seems to understand how to walk on a leash. Although it seems that someone worked with Blake at some point along his journey, we do not yet know if he is housetrained or crate trained. However, we have discovered that this guy takes direction well and seems to be a confident and stable guy. As Blake moves forward, he will meet with greatest success in a household that will provide the structure, routine, and consistency that all young GSDs crave. Blake will also benefit greatly from continued training as this will help him develop a healthy bond with his forever family. 

Blake should be a good sized guy. Unfortunately, he is still so emaciated that it is hard to see his true size at this time. In addition to his skeletal frame, Blake arrived with an untreated skin condition that has caused sores and significant hair loss all along his back-end and tail. Although this is likely very uncomfortable, Blake has remained stable and friendly with our handlers. Fortunately, our amazing vetting team is already at work determining next steps for Blake. A skin scrape has been performed and bloodwork is forthcoming. Until a diagnosis is reached, Blake has been given steroids and is being monitored very closely. Blake's condition did not occur overnight. It will take time to address his medical needs in order to help Blake move forward. Please consider donating to Blake's care. Your donation will not only help us further support Blake, but it will also help us care for other dogs with medical needs. Blake is looking for an active and loving forever family that will commit to him forever. Could that be with you?

Houston and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Houston was picked up as a stray in a busy city. He was brought to a local shelter, where staff members immediately fell in love with this sweetheart. Although Houston quickly won over the hearts and minds of the shelter staff, they knew that he needed more care than they could provide. In order to find Houston the help he needed, a rescue plea went out. MAGSR knew Houston deserved a family to call his own so we stepped in to help him. 

Houston is a stable, confident and friendly guy. Although we do not know what Houston's life was like prior to his arrival at the shelter, at some point he did know love. Known to shower his handlers with affection, Houston does tend to give wiggles and kisses when first meeting new people. He's simply a lovable guy. When Houston arrived at the shelter it was highly evident that something was wrong with his front right leg. He was non weight bearing as the lower portion of his leg was hanging from the carpal area. Upon closer inspection, it was determined that Houston has a right distal radial ulna fracture. This will need to be repaired by one of our surgical specialists. Unfortunately, Houston will need to wait a few weeks as he is also suffering from a rather serious upper respiratory infection. Although he is getting the additional attention and support he needs to recover, he will need time to heal before surgery.

In addition to Houston's other medical needs, we have learned that he is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided if he had been given monthly heartworm preventatives. Houston's heartworm treatment has begun. Although treatment is expensive, this sweet boy is more than worth the cost. Please consider donating to Houston's medical needs. Your generosity will help us care for Houston as well as other dogs who need medical support. Houston will need some extra support over the next few months. However, with time, patience, and an amazing medical team, he will be ready for his forever home soon. 

Update:

Handsome Houston has been living with his foster family since the beginning of November. Due to the extent of his injuries, he has been on full crate rest since he arrived. This is essential as the bones in Houston's leg need time to heal properly. Too much pressure or activity could cause the plate in his leg to fail. Although crate restriction is not likely Houston's favorite activity, he has remained a joyful and affectionate guy throughout the past few months. With weekly vet visits to change his cast, monitor progress, and keep his skin healthy, Houston has gotten to know the staff at Paradise Animal Hospital very well. He greets them with tail wags and kisses on every visit. As sedation is needed with every visit while changing out his cast, Houston has consistently woken up from sedation with a happy, thumping tail. With some luck, Houston will hopefully be able to say goodbye to his cast forever at the end of January and begin physical therapy in February. 

 

As Houston's skin infections have cleared up and his healing is progressing, he is now ready to start his heartworm injections. These will begin in early January. We are excited that Houston will be able to start this next step in his heartworm treatment on time as it has taken a couple of months to get his health back up to a point where we felt comfortable moving forward. Since Houston is already on strict crate rest and is crate trained, this next piece of his healing process should be very familiar to him. With so many medical needs upon arrival, Houston has been very patient with us as we handle one medical hurdle at a time. We cannot wait for the day that Houston is cast, cone, and crate free to run and play. Please consider contributing to Houston's medical needs. This happy, energetic, and inquisitive guy is just a few more months away from being ready for a forever family.

Jed and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Jed's family loved him dearly and made the difficult decision to return him to MAGSR as they felt they could no longer give him the structure and time he needed to live his best life. Although this was a difficult decision, Jed's family knew he deserved every opportunity to find a new family who would love him and could dedicate the time and energy needed to properly care for him. We promised them that we would make sure that Jed found the perfect home. 

Jed recently transitioned into his foster home and we are still learning about him. As a result, Jed is still acclimating to his surroundings and does seem to feel most content in a well lit open space; however, he has slept in an impact crate with the door open all night.  He is curious but cautious of new things. Due to some anxiety, Jed will pace incessantly until he is comfortable or tired.  He seems to enjoy the company of dogs but their interactions. At this time those interactions have been limited and he can be a little intrusive. Jed is in many ways just a giant puppy in his mannerism. He will thrice in a household with a family that is dedicated to him and willing to work through his insecurities and anxieties.  As a treat motivated guy, Jed has quickly discovered the importance of looking to his handler for guidance and direction. This will make training with him easier. As is true of all dogs, training is essential as it will not only help Jed adjust to his new household but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. If Jed sounds like the right match for your household, please ask to meet him today.

Keagen and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Keagan and his buddy, Bridget, were surrendered to a shelter. The family did not provide the shelter with a reason for the surrender. However, once in their care, it became clear to shelter staff that these two dogs had not always been treated kindly. Timid and unsure, both dogs can be fearful with new people and situations. However, given time and support, both Bridget and Keagan have shown that they are sweet dogs. Although shelter staff enjoyed both dogs, they recognized that Bridget and Keagan would have their best chance at finding their forever families if they were placed in a breed specific rescue. We were more than happy to welcome both dogs into the MAGSR family. 

Keagan is one handsome guy. Although a little more outgoing than his sister, Keagan is still shy when it comes to new people and in new situations. His forever family will need to keep a close eye on Keagan as he adjusts to his new life and household. Having likely been mistreated in her previous home, Keagan can be a little unsure when approached quickly. However, when given a chance to adjust, Keagan does enjoy attention from his people. A stable environment with clear routines and structure will go a long way with this guy. He will thrive with structure, leadership, and love. As is true of all dogs, it is critical that Keagan participate in training early on with his new family. Training will not only help Keagan develop the confidence he needs to become a stable adult, but it will also help him create a strong and healthy bond with his forever family. Keagan is looking for a patient family that will commit to him for a lifetime, could that be with you?

Schnapps and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Schnapps was picked up as a stray and brought to a local shelter. Although he waited for his family to come and claim him, when no one arrived, shelter staff began looking for rescue placement. With limited shelter staff and volunteers available to work with Schnapps, they knew he would be most successful if placed within a rescue. When MAGSR heard of Schnapp's need, we welcomed him to the family. 

 

Schnapps is a very large, driven boy. As a young guy, Schnapps has good energy. It is essential that he is placed in a household that can exercise both his mind and his body on a daily basis. With high ball drive, Schnapps is hoping that his forever family is looking to strengthen their throwing arm as he would be happy to play ball on a daily basis. True of the breed, Schnapps will require a home that can provide him with the structure, routine, and leadership that all GSDs need. As Schnapps embodies many of the typical breed traits, he would also be best placed in a household with breed experience. Training is critical for Schnapps as it will help him not only bond to his new family but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. Motivated by both treats and the ball, Schnapps should be the star of the training class. Schnapps is looking for an active forever family that will continue to support him as he develops into a stable and confident adult, could this be with you?

Theo was a stray who found his way to a shelter where it was very clear that he needed immediate medical attention. A portion of Theo's tail had been degloved and he required significant medical support. Recognizing that Theo's condition would require surgical intervention, the shelter staff worked with local groups to get Theo the help he needed. In order to help Theo survive, a portion of his tail was amputated. With his medical needs addressed, Theo is ready to move forward and begin his journey with a new family. Theo is a big, ball-driven boy. He is good with other dogs but prefers proper introductions.Theo will meet with success in a household where he has structure and leadership. Training will also go a long way with this handsome guy. Although we are still getting to know Theo, we will provide updates soon. If Theo sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet him today.

Titan and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Titan's family adored him. He brought endless love and joy to their family. However, due to circumstances beyond their control, they could no longer continue to care for him. Although this was a devastating decision, Titan's family knew he deserved every opportunity to find a new family who would love and care for him throughout his golden years. We promised them that we would make sure that Titan found the perfect home. 

Titan is a happy, friendly, and joyful guy. A big fan of cuddles and the lean in, Titan regularly seeks out affection from his people. Open to a variety of entertainment options, Titan loves balls, toys, and bones. Although Titan does enjoy his playtime, he is also very good at being a couch potato. He has just the right amount of energy for family life. As a mature fellow, Titan understands the rules of the household. He is housebroken and crate trained. His days of puppy behaviors are behind him. A great companion, Titan keeps an eye on his people and always wants to be part of the fun. 

As can happen with age, Titan does have some special needs. Titan has been diagnosed with chronic progressive cerebellar disease. This condition causes him to have some stability issues and some exaggerated movements. Although he lacks the smooth movements of a younger dog, Titan's condition does not impact his ability to love and be loved. Titan is looking for a household where he can avoid stairs as he is unable to navigate staircases safely. He will also need a home that has carpeted floors or mats to help him more effectively cross surfaces within the household. Titan is an incredibly special guy. If your household is looking for a sweet, affectionate, mature guy, ask to meet Titan today. 

Update:

Sweet Titan has adjusted well in his foster home. He enjoys a daily routine that includes a few walks, playtime, opportunities to check on everyone in the family, and of course unending snuggles. Titan loves to be outside with his people. Everyone and everything he sees is exciting. Between regular interactions with neighbors, the brief glimpses of local wildlife, and boundless opportunities for sniffing, his outside time is full of positivity. Although clearly happy outside, Titan exudes joy all day long. When inside, Titan has perfect household manners. He keeps an eye on his people at all times and likes to be in close proximity to them. Although Titan does enjoy some playtime with his ball each day, he is happy to hang out and snuggle too. Titan is looking for a forever home that will love him throughout his golden years. Could that be with you?

Toby and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Cutie little Toby did not have an easy start in life. He was mistreated by his owner and then abandoned in the south. Fortunately, another rescue heard about Toby's plight and started putting plans in place to help him. Although they were able to start moving him forward, unfortunately, Toby was not able to move into the safety of a rescue before he was attacked by another dog. Medical support was secured quickly and Toby was moved into MAGSR's care. 

For such a young guy, Toby has endured a lot of trauma. He is still learning that there are kind people in the world who will treat him the way he should have been treated since the beginning. Recognizing that Toby needed and deserved additional support in order to develop the confidence and stability that he needs to move forward, Toby is working with one of our trainers in a board and train program. 

Toby has been with the trainer for a few weeks and he is doing amazing. They quickly learned he has an incredible ability for tracking or nose work. He would be a phenomenal working dog or competition sport nose work dog. He is currently learning to be off leash and they are continuing to explore his tracking abilities. Toby would do best with an active family that would enjoy putting his talents to work whether for sport or competition. He will thrive with continued training and structure as he is a medium to high energy boy! If he sounds like the pup for you please put your application in!
