DESCRIPTION:

Amazing Aberforth is one of 11 puppies and a mama that were part of a cruelty case within Maryland. Upon arrival, this sweet litter of pups quickly won over all the staff within the shelter; however,  they knew this family needed to move into the safety of a rescue immediately so they could move forward and find loving forever families.  When asked if we could help this litter of 11 babies and mama, team MAGSR stepped up and welcomed the Hogwarts family to the rescue. 

Aberforth is a playful and interactive guy. He definitely understands the joy of toys and is happy to keep himself entertained, particularly, if he has a furry buddy to play with. Like his brothers and sisters, he is working on socialization and house manners. Fortunately, our Hogwarts puppies have a good start already as they are sweet and friendly pups who happily soak up all of the love and attention they can find. Living with amazing foster families, each of the Hogwarts puppies is starting to learn all of the important things they will need to know in order to develop into stable and confident adult dogs. Although puppies bring endless joy to everyone they encounter, 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, structure, and routine, they will develop into incredible dogs. If these babies sound like the right match for your household, ask to meet one of them today!

Angus and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Angus was picked up as a stray and brought to animal control. Upon arrival it was clear that Angus had some medical needs that would require quick attention. Missing hair over a large portion of his body with open sores, it was obvious to shelter staff that Angus had likely been in some pain for a while. Although staff waited for Angus' family to claim him, no one stepped forward. Recognizing that Angus would be most successful if placed within a rescue, staff members reached out to MAGSR for help. We immediately welcomed Angus to the MAGSR family. 

Although Angus is in rough shape, he has the sweetest soul. A lover of everyone and everything, Angus enjoys spending time with kids, adults, and other dogs. He is even good with cats. Unfortunately, we do not know much about his past; however, it is clear that someone helped him develop into a social guy. His lovely personality shines through even with all the pain he must be in. Our team is already putting things in place to help lessen Angus' pain and get him the care he needs. He is lucky to have been placed with a loving foster family who will continue to help Angus move forward. As is true of all GSDs Angus will be most successful in a household with clear structure, routine, and leadership. These are essential qualities of a GSD home. He will also benefit from training as this will help Angus develop into a good canine citizen. Angus is looking for a loving forever home that will commit to him for a lifetime. Could that be with 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.

Beta and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Alpha and Beta appeared outside the home of an experienced GSD family. Recognizing the boys needed a safe place to stay while their family was located, this family brought the boys in and began making calls to local vets, shelters, and lost dog groups. Although word quickly spread that Alpha and Beta had been found and were safe, no one came to bring the boys home. When their stray hold ended, this family began working with local rescues to move the boys forward so that they could be safely placed in a loving forever home. As a member of the rescue network contacted to support Alpha and Beta, MAGSR was happy to step forward and help the boys move into the rescue family.

Beta is in many ways your typical young, energetic, and inquisitive guy. However, it appears that Beta lacks experience with new people and experiences, as a result, he can be timid and a little jumpy at first. When given time to adjust, Beta is affectionate and playful. He enjoys giving hugs and kisses, but he will need to learn that this is not always appropriate. As is true of all young dogs, Beta will be most successful if placed in a home with clear structure, routine, and leadership. Continued socialization is essential as Beta will need to learn how to navigate new environments and new people confidently. Training will help Beta as he continues to develop the stability and confidence needed to become a good canine citizen. If you are looking for a sweet, deserving guy, who will keep you entertained with teenage antics, ask to meet Beta today!

Cooper and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Joyful Cooper has been moved about a few times in his young life. However, he was lucky that the right people stepped in and recognized that a young, social guy like him would thrive in a household that had the time and energy to work with him. So, they brought Cooper to a local shelter where staff members fell in love with this interactive guy. Although Cooper easily won over the hearts of the shelter team, they recognized that he would be most successful if he found placement through a rescue. When we heard about Cooper's need for placement, we immediately welcomed him to the MAGSR family. 

 

Cooper is an interactive and social boy. He clearly has had the opportunity to interact with others throughout his puppyhood. Although Cooper definitely has a great start, continued socialization is imperative to his success as an adult. Typical of most young GSDs, Cooper has a lot of energy. It will be essential that Cooper's family exercise his body and his mind on a daily basis. This will help him maintain a stable and confident mindset. Although Cooper is still very young, he has already begun to learn some basic commands. His intelligence, willingness to please, and his food motivation makes him a great student. Cooper will excel in training class. Training will not only help Cooper develop a strong and healthy bond with his family, but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen that we know that he is destined to be. Cooper is looking for a loving and active household who will love him for a lifetime. Could this be with you?

Update:

Cooper has been with us for a little over a week, and he is already running with our pack of two GSDs, Nala and Vader.  He clearly looks up to Vader, and he desperately wants to win over Nala (who is not as friendly as Vader!).  He has had no issues socializing with Nala and Vader, and he would play with Vader 24/7 if Vader would relent and do so.  He has boundless energy, but he is, thankfully, good at entertaining himself.  He enjoys chewing all shapes, sizes, and types of bones and tugging on the tuffy toy rings.  He is starved for love and comes by regularly for pets and snuggles when we are sitting on the couch.

Cooper came to us after a few weeks of formal training, and he knows and understands his commands.  Temptation sometimes get the best of him, but he gets back in line easily when he is corrected.  He is housebroken and can tell you when he needs to go out (he paces in a circle or scratches the door), and he sleeps in our mudroom at night (gated in) with no barking or other issues.  He walks fairly well on the leash.  He is occasionally reactive to another dog, but it is clearly fear rather than aggression.  He is a voracious eater, which is good news because he needs to gain some weight! 

The original description uses the best word we can think of for Cooper – he is joyful.  Despite his rough start in life, he is a happy, easygoing, loving, playful dog.  Any family would be lucky to have Cooper.

Finnick and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

The Hunger Games puppies - Peeta, Katniss, Thresh, Rue, Gale, and Finnick - were an accidental litter in the south. Although they were well-cared for as babies, as they grew, they became too much for their family. Recognizing that they were unable to provide a large number of babies with what they needed, their family surrendered them to a shelter. Unfortunately, with the overwhelming number of dogs needing placements in shelters right now, owner surrenders are the first dogs to be euthanized. The minute these babies entered the building they were in danger. Trying to do everything they could to keep this group alive, shelter staff began pleading for rescue help. When we heard about their plight, our team knew we needed to welcome the Hunger Games family to MAGSR. 

Finnick is an inquisitive and interactive boy. He already has a good idea of what toys are and how they can keep him well entertained. As an active young pup, Finnick is looking for a family that can give him the time, attention, and training that will help him meet with success. Still a very young dog, it is essential that Finnick continue to socialize regularly. This will help him develop a stable and confident personality. Although Finnick is an absolute honey, please remember that puppies are a lot of work. They will whine, chew, have accidents, and fill your home with puppy antics. With time, patience, training and socialization, Finnick will develop into the good canine citizen that we know he is destined to be. If this sweetheart sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet him today.

Fritzy and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Fritzy once lived in a home with his owner. He enjoyed the life most dogs hope to lead. However, his life changed drastically when his owner became disabled and could no longer properly care for him. Fritzy was placed outside on the property but received little interaction, food, or vetting care. Underlying allergies began to plague Fritzy and his skin became inflamed. Over time this condition worsened, leaving Fritzy with open sores, infections, several areas of missing fur, and underweight. When a couple of good samaritans became aware of Fritzy's situation, they intervened by bringing Fritzy food, clean water, and needed socialization. Although they made Fritzy's world better, they knew that Fritzy needed more. We were contacted to see if we could move Fritzy into our care so that he could be placed in a safe and loving forever home. How could we say no?

Fritzy joined the MAGSR family and has begun to heal. Although he has a bit of a journey ahead of him, we are working with our vetting partners to help Fritzy move forward. With a plan in place, we are honored to have the opportunity to watch him heal and try new adventures every day. As is true of all GSDs, Fritzy is looking for a home that will provide him with structure, routine and consistency. This will help him decompress and build a strong and stable relationship with his forever family. Fritzy will benefit from continued socialization in a structured manner. This will help him continue to learn about the world around him. With time, patience, and a little TLC, we know he will be joy and endless smiles to his forever family. If your family is ready to welcome a new furry friend, ask to meet Fritzy. He can't wait to find a safe and loving forever home.

If this little darling sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet him today. 

Update:

Gale's foster has nothing but good things to say about him. He’s doing good.  His leash manners are quite impressive.  The sit command is mastered.  He also waits pretty good.  Crate is not an issue, he goes in sometimes on his own.  Working on leaving him in the crate when he can’t see me.  A little drama with that but we will keep at it.  He’s also eating well!

Kingston and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Kingston was surrendered to a shelter by his owner who outwardly admitted that he was being abused in their home. Having survived a couple years of mistreatment, Kingston was, understandably, frightened and unsure. Although fearful and avoidant with men due to the abuse suffered at the hands of a man, Kingston was more accepting of and comfortable with female staff members at the shelter. However, it was very apparent to shelter staff that Kingston would be most successful if given the opportunity to move forward with a rescue that could provide him with the time, patience, and leadership needed to move beyond his abuse. Recognizing that Kingston deserved so much more than the life that he had escaped, several rescuers came together to network Kingston and help him move forward. MAGSR was honored to be part of the team that changed Kingston's life for the better. 

Kingston is a survivor. He has endured pain and suffering without the voice to ask for help. The scars left by his previous owner are not very visible on the outside, but they have left him unsure and anxious with new people and situations. As a result, Kingston has needed time to decompress and develop trust in an experienced foster home. Handshy and head shy, Kingston's foster family has been slowly teaching him that people can be kind, gentle, and a source of love. He has been learning that a leash is not a tool for pain, a collar will not hurt, and that head scratches are truly amazing. This is a slow process, but every day, Kingston's foster family sees a little more of the goofy, playful, and affectionate boy that has been hidden by the trauma of his previous life. Daily opportunities to work with his foster family and adjust to living in a safe home are important for Kingston. He has adjusted well to being handled by his foster mom and is learning to trust his foster dad. Kingston's relationships with men will require some additional support as he continues to progress. With time, training, desensitization, and a chance to be a dog, Kingston is making important strides needed to move forward with a loving family of his own. 

In addition to the physical abuse that Kingston endured, it is apparent that he was also neglected. Upon arrival, it was very clear that Kingston had medical needs that required immediate intervention. Struggling to defecate without shaking and screaming in pain, extremely uncomfortable with swollen and infected anal glands, itchy from a food allergy, in pain from frostbitten ears, positive for heartworms, and lacking energy due to a severe case of pneumonia, Kingston has needed significant medical support. Fortunately, one of our amazing vetting partners has worked with us to provide Kingston with everything he needs. Antibiotics have begun, pain meds have been administered, x-rays have been taken, and next steps are in place to ensure that Kingston's needs are met. Additional care will be needed over the next month or two to ensure that Kingston is healed and healthy. Kingston's medical needs are expensive but he is more than worth the cost. Please consider donating to his care as your donation will not only help us help Kingston move forward, but it will also help us continue to welcome dogs with medical needs into the MAGSR family. 

Although Kingston is not yet ready to find his forever family, we know that when he is ready for his next step, a safe, loving, experienced and supportive family will be waiting for him. Kingston Could that be with you?

DESCRIPTION:

Ozzy and his buddy, Saxom, were victims of a house fire. When their family lost their home, they realized that they could no longer provide their dogs with the care that they deserved. As a result, they surrendered the dogs to a shelter. Upon arrival, it was evident that Ozzy and Saxom lacked socialization. They had lived with a pack of dogs; however, it seems that they had limited exposure to new situations and new people. Shelter staff immediately began working with the boys to build trust and move them forward. However, they recognized that Ozzy and Saxom would likely not thrive in a shelter setting. As a result, they sent out a plea for rescue placement. When we learned about the boys, we put plans together to welcome both Ozzy and Saxom into the MAGSR family. 

Ozzy is a timid yet affectionate guy. A little unsure with new people and new situations, Ozzy is looking for a patient household that will give him plenty of opportunities to socialize in a safe way with new people and new environments. Once given time to adjust, Ozzy is playful, affectionate, and a big leaner. He understands the joy of toys and particularly enjoys toys that squeak. Curious and affectionate, Ozzy is settling in with his foster family. As he moves forward, Ozzy will meet with success in a household that provides him with clear structure and routine. He thrives on leadership and confidence. Training is essential for Ozzy. Not only will it help him build a healthy bond with his forever family, but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. Ozzy is looking for a patient forever family that has the time and energy to continue to move him forward. If this handsome guy sounds like the right match for you, ask to meet him today!

Update:

Ozzy has adjusted well to his foster family and enjoys his daily routine. As a young guy, once comfortable, Ozzy has a lot of good energy that needs to be burned on a daily basis. A huge fan of a good, long walk, Ozzy loves to take in the world around him. He particularly loves to smell the flowers in the yards he passes. Still a little unsure with unknown people passing him, Ozzy is learning to come to a heel with his handler and walk calmly past other people in the neighborhood. He prefers to continue on his way without interaction from strangers. When not out and about learning about the world around him, Ozzy continues to enjoy daily playtime. Toys are endless entertainment and he doesn't need much help keeping himself occupied. Food based toys and activities have also become an exciting treat. At this time, Ozzy is housebroken and crate trained. He seems to understand the general expectations in the household. However, with any transition there is always the possibility of some accidents. Ozzy has also begun to pick up some basic commands, such as, sit, come, and crate. He will continue to develop basic skills with his foster family.

When in the shelter, Ozzy had an accident that resulted in some favoring of his back right leg. His foster family kept an eye on this and made sure that he got into a vet to be evaluated. When evaluated, concerns arose in regards to Ozzy's right elbow and his hips. Ozzy's right elbow has a united anconeal process (UAP). This is a disorder associated with the elbow that happens with a small bony projection, which is known as the anconeal process, does not unite and fuse with the ulna. As a critical aspect of the elbow joint, Ozzy does need surgical intervention to correct this disorder. He is on the schedule to meet with and be evaluated by a surgical specialist in late August. While at his appointment, a closer look at his hips will occur as his pelvis is moderately dysplastic with DJD remodeling on the right hip. Ozzy's surgery and associated rehab will be expensive. However, he is more than worth the cost. Please consider donating to Ozzy's care. Your support will not only help us provide Ozzy with the medical care he needs to move forward, but it will also help us continue to support medical dogs within the MAGSR family.

Although Ozzy has a few medical needs in play, he is continuing to look for the perfect forever family. If he sounds like the right guy for your household, ask to meet him today!

DESCRIPTION:

The Hunger Games puppies - Peeta, Katniss, Thresh, Rue, Gale, and Finnick - were an accidental litter in the south. Although they were well-cared for as babies, as they grew, they became too much for their family. Recognizing that they were unable to provide a large number of babies with what they needed, their family surrendered them to a shelter. Unfortunately, with the overwhelming number of dogs needing placements in shelters right now, owner surrenders are the first dogs to be euthanized. The minute these babies entered the building they were in danger. Trying to do everything they could to keep this group alive, shelter staff began pleading for rescue help. When we heard about their plight, our team knew we needed to welcome the Hunger Games family to MAGSR. 

Peeta is a confident and intelligent guy. As an active young pup, Peeta is looking for a family that can give him the time, attention, and training that will help him meet with success. Still a very young dog, it is essential that Peeta continue to socialize regularly. This will help him develop a stable personality. Although Peeta is a stunning guy, please remember that puppies are a lot of work. They will whine, chew, have accidents, and fill your home with puppy antics. With time, patience, training and socialization, Peeta will develop into the good canine citizen that we know he is destined to be. If this handsome guy sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet him today.

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?

Update:

Schnapps is making good progress in his foster home.  The young Mr. Schnapps is a very handsome, smart, exuberant, and large GSD, who arrived at MAGSR with way more energy and drive than he knew what to do with.  Evidently in his early days, he probably was not dissuaded from the notion that maximizing his innate tendencies to be pushy, mouthy, and noisy was the way to get what he wanted – but the net result was a confused and anxious dog.  With training, consistent limits and boundaries, and structured outlets for all that energy and over-the-top drive, he’s gradually improved on all fronts and has developed a strong relationship with his foster.  At heart Schnapps is a very good-natured and happy-go-lucky boy.  He gets along nicely under supervision with the older dominant female GSD in his foster home, and he does very well on leash around new people and other dogs.  But he is not by any stretch a turn-key dog – his impetuous enthusiasm can get him in trouble easily if mismanaged.  So he will need continued love, leadership, structure, limits, and consistency to reach his full potential and succeed in a new home.  He will need an experienced family who can manage his size, strength, drive, and volatility, and that with the help of trainer can mold this very impressive and lovable, big, and kind of goofy and unsure, teenager into the extraordinary dog he has the potential to become.  Please ask about Schnapps if you are equipped and ready to give him the situation and life that he requires and deserves.

--- Please give to help Sirius

DESCRIPTION:

Smart little Sirius is one of 11 puppies and a mama that were part of a cruelty case within Maryland. Upon arrival, this sweet litter of pups quickly won over all the staff within the shelter; however,  they knew this family needed to move into the safety of a rescue immediately so they could move forward and find loving forever families.  When asked if we could help this litter of 11 babies and mama, team MAGSR stepped up and welcomed the Hogwarts family to the rescue. 

Sirius is an adventurous and active guy. Always ready to try new things, he is happy to lead the group forward and try new things. Like his brothers and sisters, he is working on socialization and house manners. Fortunately, our Hogwarts puppies have a good start already as they are sweet and friendly pups who happily soak up all of the love and attention they can find. Living with amazing foster families, each of the Hogwarts puppies is starting to learn all of the important things they will need to know in order to develop into stable and confident adult dogs. Although puppies bring endless joy to everyone they encounter, 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, structure, and routine, they will develop into incredible dogs. If these babies sound like the right match for your household, ask to meet one of them today!
