DESCRIPTION:

Archie came to us after being confiscated for cruelty.  Witnesses saw his former owner beating him with a metal baton and the police were called.  Archie sustained trauma to his head, which left an open wound to his head along with a fractured frontal sinus cavity.  He also has fractured teeth which are being extracted.  There were old scars possibly from earlier abuse.  Archie received immediate medical treatment for his injuries. Although Archie is a mix breed we could not leave him behind.  We welcomed him into MAGSR with open arms as an honorary GSD.  Archie is currently residing in medical care under the watchful eyes of vets.  So far they have seen no deficits, and he seems to have recovered both physically and mentally from traumatic event. Archie is a fun, friendly, high energize boy.  He loves to romp around and play a good game of fetch.  He will require a family that can match his energy level in order for him to receive the exercise he will need.  Archie is needing a family that will treat him with kindness, that will provide him with a safe and stable home, lots of love and care.

 

Update:

Archie is settling right in to his foster home. The x-rays of Archie's head came back all clear and no deficits were noted from the beating. Archie had a number of teeth extracted that were fractured and not good - the vet said they had to be causing him pain. Archie loves his toys and balls and just loves for his humans to throw the balls so he can fetch and bring it back to them to throw again. He especially loves tennis balls and squeaky balls. Even though Archie was in an unhealthy relationship with his prior owner, he has bounced back and is happy, healthy, friendly & affectionate, bouncy, playful and full of tail wags. Archie is ready to meet his new fur-ever family - is that you?

DESCRIPTION:

One of the largest puppy mill busts found hundreds of German Shepherd's living in absolute filth and in horrendous condition.  Ankle deep mud and feces mixed with urine, no adequate shelter, lacking food and clean water is how these dogs were left to live, many for years.  The urgent call was made and MAGSR knew we had to take in as many as possible.  We now have 38 dogs that have a multitude of medical needs that we are addressing, and they need to learn to trust humans.  All dogs are scared, some are shut down, but our volunteers and vets will get them on their road to recovery.  It will be awhile before these dogs are ready for adoption, so please be patient and watch for updates. 

An undertaking of this size for an all-volunteer rescue is quite a task, but one we are meeting it head on.  Many of the dogs require medical boarding so that they can receive the best possible care.  We are committed to providing everything they need, not only medically, but emotionally.  Our medical costs are going to be at an amount we have never seen before.  We need your help, the dogs need your help.  Please donate , your donation will go towards their ongoing care, medical needs, emotional needs and help them on their road to recovery and a brighter future.

Update:

The GA 38 arrived in MAGSR’s care in early/mid January 2019 and over the past two months, their transformation has been nothing short of amazing. These 38 broken souls knew nothing but a life of filth, hunger, and abuse. Their eyes were filled with the look of fear, emptiness and uncertainty. They cowered in the corners of their runs and tried to be as far away from humans as possible and MAGSR volunteers knew they had quite a challenge ahead to right the wrongs of their past prior to arriving in MAGSR's care. MAGSR volunteers stepped up & took on the challenge head on. And now, two months later, through the endless work of dedicated volunteers that have selflessly given their time, patience and love, these beautiful creatures have begun to meet us with tail wags, lean-ins as we walk with them, and most importantly, where once there was emptiness and fear in their eyes, it’s clear those memories have been replaced with hope and even a bit of curiosity. Their wounds have healed, their bellies are full and they have learned that all humans aren’t so bad. They are greeting us at the front of their kennel runs now eager for treats and walks. All of them have learned to walk on a leash and we are beginning some basic obedience with them such as "sit", "heel" and “watch me.” They are now used to being handled regularly for normal things such as baths, getting their weights taken, and taking their monthly preventatives. Best of all, volunteers are seeing their unique personalities and social side come out with other dogs. Just a few months ago, they were all fighting for the same food and water and ability to stay alive but today, many have completely let down their guard and are comfortable enough to engage in play and/or positively interact with other dogs. All  of these dogs have shown us how intelligent and resilient they are and have made significant strides in their road of rehabilitation. They are ready for the next chapter of their journey and we hope you may be part of  their story.

DESCRIPTION:

Johnny came to us from a shelter, we have no history for him.  Since arriving in our care, he has been a complete gentleman. A little unsure with his new surroundings at first, but has quickly settled in. Johnny is a kind gentle soul and is very gentle with his handler. He enjoys belly rubs, being with his people, staying by his human's side, and will look to his handler for guidance. Johnny is a wonderful boy and anyone would be lucky to have him.

Update:

Luther is settling in to his experienced foster home. Luther, like the other GA38 dogs, is not well socialized with people. Luther remains very anxious about anything new in his environment. Although he is no longer scared of the resident dogs, he rarely interacts with them and is fearful of the activity. Luther feels most safe in his crate – it is his “security blanket” and prefers to spend a good bit of time in there. He allows humans to interact with and touch him, but is nervous about it. Luther has not yet felt confident enough to voluntarily approach humans to interact, but hopefully, that will come in time. Luther is considered a high flight risk dog. Luther has had some field trips to a local group training class which is helping him to work on his confidence. Luther would do best in a quiet home with a consistent routine, preferably with a high fenced yard, no children and not a lot of activity. If Luther sounds like he may be a fit for your home, ask to meet him.


Update:

Luther has settled in to his foster home. In the beginning, Luther was very scared of absolutely everything, even the other dogs in the home. Luther has made some progress now in that he watches as the resident dogs carry on and play. He has gained some trust in his foster home as he will now let her walk up to him without being too fearful. His foster mom speaks softly to him and Luther seems to respond well to that. Luther is looking for a low key and quiet home for his fur-ever home. If your home could be a good match for what Luther needs, please ask to meet him.
