Bella and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
DESCRIPTION:

Bella made her way to us from us a shelter.

 

She was surrendered to the shelter due to ongoing allergies/skin issues. She is now under the care of our vets who are treating her, she has also been switched to a grain free diet.

She has made great improvements medically, but still has a way to go. We are hopeful with the care that she is receiving we will get this under control.

Bella is so sweet and loving, in her previous home she lived with 6 children and other dogs.

Diesel and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Diesel
DESCRIPTION:

Diesel is a very handsome, friendly young boy who was surrendered as his person fell on hard times.  He was very much loved and is greatly missed by his former person.  He is playful, full of young energy and enjoys to swim.  He has some manners to learn, but nothing that a good training program can't help with.  

Update:

Diesel is a handsome, sweet, and young pup eager to play, learn, and loves good pets! When we first brought him home, all he wanted to do was play with our pocket shepherd (40lb mix). Being so young, he is surprisingly gentle when playing. This is true when walking him as well! Very good on the lead and doesn't pull. If he gets a little ahead, a little tug of the collar will get him focused back to you and the walk.

He loves treats and will sit and command down for them. This morning we worked on "place" training, rewarding him with food. We also practiced heel/stop sit in the house. He caught on so quickly! This mental stimulation has already wiped him out before 9AM. Structure has been key and he is responding so well to it just within a day of having him.

So far we can say he is fully housebroken. He is a little underweight so we are giving him structured opportunities to eat, with praise and within the crate.

If you want young, pure GSD, he is the one! At 90 pounds (and counting) he is ready to find his forever home. I mean just look at those ears. How could you not want to take him home!

Grisham and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Grisham
GrishamGrishamGrishamGrishamGrisham
DESCRIPTION:

Grisham is a friendly boy with lots of puppy energy, at only 1 yr he is still a puppy.  Training will go along way in helping him learn good manners and create a bond with his new family.  Young dogs need a lot of attention and guidance, so please be sure you are able to commit to Grisham for the rest of his life.

Update:

Grisham is a very sweet and good-natured young dog.  He has been living in his foster home for a couple weeks now, and has settled in wonderfully.  He is very well adjusted to his crate, has proven he is housebroken, and gets along splendidly with the two older resident dogs.  He is coming along very well with some of his obedience commands, and has a good sit and down, and has really made great progress on his leash manners.   He meets new dogs easily and well with proper introductions, keeping in mind he is still pretty young and puppyish, so may be a little “over the top” for some older and more reserved dogs.  As a young dog he has boatloads of energy, and loves to run and play in the yard, and go biking with his foster dad.  He is happy to meet all people, young and old, and loves to curl up at your feet and hang out (once he’s burned his puppy energy off!).   Grisham may be a bit stubborn sometimes when he is uncertain about what is going on –  for example he wasn’t going anywhere near the vacuum cleaner the first time he met one.  But he is very handsome and charming young GSD mix that is very upbeat and eager to please.  Please ask to meet Grisham if he sounds like the dog for you!

Grizzly and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Grizzly
Grizzly
DESCRIPTION:

Grizzly is the son of Apache and the brother to Keena.  Grizzly does best with another dog as they help him relax.  He is somewhat shy, he will require someone with patience and who will work on helping him build his confidence.  Training will go along way and certainly help with him getting use to being on a leash.  He is a sweet boy just a little unsure, it is obvious he was not well socialized, but with your help he should blossom.

Jolene and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
JoleneJoleneJoleneJoleneJoleneJoleneJoleneJoleneJoleneJolene
DESCRIPTION:

Jolene was found as a stray with a pretty significant cut/wound to her leg.  The shelter provided her with medical care but unfortunately her wound has not completely healed.  Jolene has been seen by our vet and will be seeing a specialist to see what can be done to help with the healing of the wound.  This  has certainly cramped Jolene's style as she is a high energy girl who loves to run, play and go for walks.  Exercise helps burn off some of that energy, but she will have to forgo excessive exercise until her leg has completely healed.  Once all healed up she will be ready for a running partner.  Jolene does better with male dogs and non dominant female dogs.

Update:

I am settling into my foster home wonderfully. I love my foster kids in the house. My foster dad says I'm a happy thing and I follow my foster mom everywhere she goes...even when she exercises. I want nothing more than to be loved on and play with my toys. I'm really looking forward to playing fetch again. If you are looking for a devoted friend for life to snuggle with you and play with you adopt me! I'm worth it.


Update:

I am doing great in physical therapy and continue to be a great sport through all of the exercises both at home and there. My leg is getting better everyday. I have really settled in and look forward to my exercises, walks and visits to the bus stop. The better my leg gets the more I want to play tug and fetch but it will still be a little while longer. Hopefully when I go back to the doctor he will give the go ahead to run, jump and play because I am dying to do it. I have lots of energy and need a family that can keep up with me. My foster parents say that I'm a really special girl and will make some family a wonderful pal for life. If you have the time and energy please adopt me.

Karma and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
--- Please give to help Karma
Karma
KarmaKarmaKarmaKarmaKarmaKarmaKarmaKarmaKarmaKarmaKarmaKarmaKarma
DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Karma came to MAGSR underweight and from a very sad situation.  Karma previously lived in a hoarding situation with 14 other dogs.  Karma was underfed and used for breeding.  Because of all that Karma has endured, she is confused and just needs to learn to trust and know she'll be well taken care of.  Now that MAGSR has Karma, we hope she will quickly adjust and learn that she will receive regular meals, attention, and proper socialization. If Karma sounds like the right dog for your household, please ask about her today.

Care for these hoarding rescues is putting a severe strain on MAGSR's resources. Donations towards their treatment would be greatly appreciated, this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs.

Update:

Sadly, sweet Karma tested heartworm positive when seen by a MAGSR vet, she obviously was not kept on monthly Heartworm Preventatives which would have protected her.  She is currently undergoing heartworm treatment to rid her body of Heartworms so that she may enjoy many more years of life.  Treatment is expensive but Karma is certainly worth the cost. 

Donations towards her treatment would be greatly appreciated, this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs


Update:

Karma has settled in nicely to her foster home and is enjoying her new life while she awaits her forever home.  She enjoys hanging out with her foster brothers and sisters, getting out for her short walks, and giving lots of kisses and tail wags to whomever she can reach.  Karma has a sweet and playful personality that gets along with kids and other dogs. 

Also, Karma’s heartworm treatment is going well.  Treatment is relatively easy to do, it just takes a few months. It requires an oral antibiotic with her meals for the first month, and three injections over the course of last two months.  After receiving the injections, she is put on crate restriction to limit activity and help her recovery.  This crate restriction is actually a great time to adopt the dog, as it allows the dog to get used to their new home in a calm environment and to slowly introduce freedom in the house.  Karma is available for adoption while she’s receiving treatment, so if you’re interested in meeting this sweet girl, contact your adoption coordinator today!


Update:

Sweet Karma was returned to MAGSR through no fault of her own - her family was not able to keep her.  Karma is finishing up her heartworm treatment and she has been wonderful through it during her crate restriction.  Karma is very anxious to be adopted by a family who will commit to her for her life and to start her life heartworm free.  If snuggles and kisses sound like something you're looking for, then Karma may be a good fit for your family, so please ask to meet her now.

Kenya and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Kenya
KenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenyaKenya
DESCRIPTION:

Kenya was adopted from our rescue when she was just a puppy in 2006.  Sadly her adopter, due to personal reasons, is no longer able to care for her.  As you can imagine Kenya's world as she knew it has been turned upside down.  She is currently in a loving foster home with her foster family helping her with the adjustment. She is anxious , eating very little and obviously does not understand what is going on or where her family is. 

Don't try to tell this senior to slow down; Kenya is quite athletic and runs and plays just fine, thank you very much!  Kenya loves to go for car rides and long walks with her foster family, as well as snuggling up for head rubs.  She has settled into her foster home nicely, also enjoying naps on her dog bed, hanging out with her foster siblings, and taking her chew bones wherever she goes.  This affectionate lady walks well on leash and knows her basic commands.  If you would like to meet Kenya, please contact our Adoptions Coordinator for more information.

Lincoln and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
LincolnLincoln
DESCRIPTION:

Lincoln is a young handsome Black and Tan Shepherd.  He still has lots of puppy energy and mannerisms.  He is looking for an active family who take him for long walks or runs and of course lots of playtime.  He is ready to learn the finer things of being a well mannered family member so training is a must.

Update:

Lincoln is a gentle sweet boy that needs a forever home to help him continue all of his great progress. He is shy meeting new people but quickly gains trust with treats and positive assertive energy. He is a great walking or running partner. Today he even played on the nearby playground (slide included)!

​ ​

He will be a great addition to an active home that is comfortable working on his good manners. He is doing well keeping a feeding schedule and using the bathroom. He is housebroken. He is eager to please and to become the best he can be

Sam and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Sam
SamSamSamSamSamSamSam
DESCRIPTION:

Sam is a very handsome 8 year old male GSD.  He has not been well cared for up until now, he is underweight and entered the shelter covered in fleas.  Life has changed for the better, he is now receiving good nutrition, he has been treated for the flea infestation and he is much loved by our rescue.  Now all that Sam needs is a family who will love him and provide proper care for his lifetime.  Please consider Sam for your family, he deserves a new start at a better life.

Update:

Before writing Sam's update, I interviewed other family members to see what they have to say about Sam.

ORHD aged 8: My favorite t​hing about Sam: he is sometimes funny when he steals pillows off of the couch and snuggles with them. If Sam had a human job it would be a boxer; no, the guy who shoots t-shirts out of the big gun at games and makes everyone cheer. Sam was very stinky when he came here but he smells better now. I hope his new owner likes to give dogs baths. He liked his bath.

HLHD aged 8: My favorite thing about Sam: he brings back the ball when I throw it. Also, he ran into the wall his first night here. He thought a shadow was a door. He put his head in my lap and made sad sounds and let me pat him. If Sam had a human job, he would says hello to everyone at [LARGE DISCOUNT STORE] and marker people's receipts. He would act like the job is fun. Sam can be annoying because he never wants to just do nothing, but he is very nice and silly. I hope his new owner buys a lot of tennis balls.

MSD aged 6: My favorite thing about Sam: he looks funny when I put underpants on his head and stick his ears out of them. He really, for real, likes hugs. Not like some dogs that you can hug, but they want to get away. If Sam had a human job it would be a clown or a hugger who hugs people that need hugs. I hope Sam's new owner hugs him and never forgets to feed him.

Foster dad: My favorite thing about Sam is that he does not have a mean bone in his body. He is starting to listen to his name, "No, Sam." If Sam had a job it would be the guy who really wants to tell you about his religion at the Metro. I hope Sam's new owner is expecting an eight-year-old dog to have as much energy as our 4-year-old one does.

Slinky (resident dog-neutered-male) aged 4: My favorite thing about Sam is that he is available for adoption. If Sam had a human job it would be: proctologist. I hope Sam's new owner feeds Sam enough. Even though he is annoying, he just wants to be friends, and no dog deserves to be starved - like Sam was.

Update from foster mom: Sam is enjoying life with a family, although he is really struggling to be calm and relax. He spends a lot of time pacing and seeking attention. He is not destroying anything, although he really likes an old couch pillow, which we are letting him keep. He carries it around but hasn't torn it up or taken anything else that he should not have.

Sam is very eager to please and responds to a sharp, no. He has had zero training and is starting to understand that he needs to "sit" to be served dinner. Sam is housebroken and he is fine when left alone at home in a crate - handled an 8 hour day without issue. He is dramatic and vocal when crated while his people are home because he wants to be with them. Sam has accepted that he is not permitted to be in the humans' beds or on the couch. He is having a harder time realizing that the resident dog doesn't like him "like that." That issue should improve after Sam is neutered. On a positive note, he accepts rejection well.

Sam walks nicely on a leash. He has met a males and females of all ages and sizes and done well with a variety of personalities. He would likely do well with a bossy female or any dog that wouldn't meet his exuberance with aggression. Sam has shown no interest in chasing rabbits or squirrels, when they are around, so it seems likely that he would be okay with a cat.

Sam is an all around friendly guy, who will 100% do well with training, consistency, and that all important trip to the vet.

Sebastian
SebastianSebastianSebastianSebastianSebastianSebastianSebastianSebastianSebastian
DESCRIPTION:

Sebastian found himself in a shelter hoping someone would give him the chance at a second life.  He was heartworm positive but has undergone treatment.  He is somewhat unsettled with all of the changes in his life, but with time he will settle in.  

Update:

Sebastian warms up to people quickly, he follows you wherever you go, and lays down near you, and craves attention all the time. He does have separation issues, needs a secure crate until he gets over his separation issues. He is housebroken, does know basic commands but needs more training. He seems good around kids. He does interact well with other dogs. At night time, if you're around, he does go into his crate and stays there all night with no issues.

Shiloh and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Shiloh
ShilohShilohShiloh
DESCRIPTION:

Shiloh came to us from a shelter. He is a very smart boy who catches on quickly. He is good with other dogs and has been friendly with the adults he has met. Shiloh requires someone who will commit to his ongoing training as he has a lot to learn. He will require an experienced an adopter who has experience with GSD's. He is currently living with our trainer as he benefits from daily training.

Update:

Shiloh has really come out of his shell while being with a MAGSR trainer.  He has shown that he loves all people he meets and will romp around the play yard chasing after balls.  He will bond quickly to his people and is a very loyal boy.  He also gets along great with other dogs and knows how to play nicely with them.  He will sit for a treat and loves belly rubs.  He jumps when excited but corrects easily and is super smart.  Overall he is a fun, exuberant, sweet boy waiting patiently for that perfect someone to give him the home he deserves. 


Update:

Shiloh was returned to us as his family is going through life altering changes and can no longer provide for him as needed. However, he was very much loved by them and he was very attached to them. Upon Shiloh's return, he showed signs of being reactive to strangers and protective of his family. He was also reactive to other dogs. However, he was very friendly, comfortable with and trusting of his family and their bond was evident. He is currently with a reputable trainer so that he can become better socialized and we will provide further updates as we get them from the trainer.
