I'm beautiful to look at
And wonderful to hold,
But please don't adopt me
If you won't keep me 'til I'm old.

Good things come to those who wait.
The saying really is true.
Just give me a chance to be a good dog,
And I'll never stop loving you.

Abby
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Abby is a sweet little firecracker of a dog.  She is not big in size, but she has huge energy and spunk - and is also a bit on the high strung side of things temperamentally.  We are still getting to know Abby, but so far she is settling in very nicely to her foster home and is getting along well with the resident dogs, who are older, larger, and easy going.  However Abby was returned to MAGSR because there were issues between ​her​ and​ a small dog in the family, and Abby can get a bit excited when she encounters smaller dogs when out on walks.   

Abby is very sweet and smart, is housebroken, and has nice leash manners, but she has strong prey drive and is sensitive and can react suddenly to surprises.  As such, Abby will probably do best in a home without small pets or young children.  If you are looking for a sweet, vibrant, active dog in a compact package, Abby may be your girl!

UPDATE: Abby is progressing very nicely in her foster home!  She is getting along splendidly with the resident dogs, including another smaller GSD mix foster that recently moved in.  While Miss Abby is a “diva” who will let you know when she is feeling slighted, and can sometimes get “a little too excited” about unfamiliar dogs out in public, she has proven that she has very good social skills with dogs with whom she has been properly introduced.  She attended a group training class this month, and did very well in close proximity to a number of other dogs in that structured environment, and is learning her basic training “P and Q’s” nicely.  Little Miss Abigail is a terrier mix, so she is and will remain on the high energy side of things, but she is just the sweetest girl who bonds tightly to her person, and is very outgoing and happy to meet new people - and most (but probably not all) dogs too, as long as proper care is taken.  If a dog like Abby sounds like a good fit for you, please ask to meet her – it’s a good bet she will bring a big smile to your face!

Cagney
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Cagney landed in a shelter as a stray and no one came looking for her. She has done well with other dogs she has met and has been friendly with people she has met. She is a petite young girl who needs to gain a little weight. Training will go a long way for Cagney, as it does for all of our dogs. It is important that a bond is created between the dog and their handler/family. It helps you both learn more about each other and teaches good canine manners.

haylee
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Haylee is a beautiful dog with a very friendly personality. Once she gets to know you, she will cover you with kisses (aka licks). She is happy both running around, acting goofy and relaxing. She is wonderful with children. She was raised with an Australian shepherd so she would be ok living with one other dog. She likes her chew toys too. Unfortunately, this beautiful girl was diagnosed with Addison's Disease in November. Prednisone and steroid injections have so far helped to successfully keep her healthy. She may need to continue to work on being a good walker and being socialized with other dogs.

DESCRIPTION: ​Kashi was found by a family, they took her into their care hoping to find her family. As her family never came forward she was surrendered to rescue. We are getting to know Kashi better as she is new to us. She can be fearful so she would benefit from a calm, stable ​pack leader who will commit to her training. Helping her build her confidence will go along way in dealing with her fear.

DESCRIPTION: Kylie is a beautiful, high-energy girl.  Kylie can be mouthy when playing and will need some training, but she is precious and has a ton of potential.  If you feel you can commit to Kylie and give her the training she needs, and feel she may be a good fit in your family, please ask to meet her.

Update: Kylie is an energetic and lovable girl. Her outgoing yet incredibly friendly personality seems to win over everyone she meets. Kylie has been living in a foster home for about a week now and has surprised her foster family with all of the commands she knows. Kylie has high-ball drive and is willing to do just about anything to play. She will sit, lay down, and out on command, particularly when a ball or wubba kong is involved. In addition to knowing a few commands, Kylie is also housebroken and crate trained. It's nice to have so many basics already in place.   Currently, Kylie is living with both male and female shepherds. She greatly enjoys the presence of the other dogs and is learning the routines of the household. Although exposed to cats, Kylie shows a little too much interest and would likely not be a match for a home with cats. As a smart and loving shepherd, Kylie is looking for a household that will continue to provide her with the guidance and leadership skills a young, energetic dog needs. If Kylie sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet her today.

Olga

DESCRIPTION: Olga was living her life in a yard with no shelter, food or water. The day she was confiscated it was 27 degrees, her body temperature was low and she was very emaciated weighing only 37 lbs. The shelter workers took very good care of her while she waited to make her way into rescue. Olga now weighs 55 lbs and could use just a few more lbs. So far what we have learned about her is that she is friendly and seems quite happy. She is ready to start her life anew...could that be with your family?

Rosie
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Rosie cannot be any cuter and is absolutely a sweet little girl, happy go lucky and confident and loves to give puppy kisses. Rosie comes to MAGSR from a home where she didn’t much like the resident cats, after being rescued and nursed back to health from an embedded collar.  Rosie has a lot to learn about going a good canine citizen and will require training.  Please remember that puppies are a lot of work, they need a lot of attention and a watchful eye – they can be a 12-14 year commitment.  Puppies are full of energy and can be mischievous – they will whine, have accidents, get into things, and chew on inappropriate things.  With time, patience, guidance and training, Rosie will become even more of an amazing girl than she already is.  Please inquire if Rosie sounds like a good match for your family.

Sex: Female
Breed: GSD
Age: 2 years old
Color: Black & Tan sable
Current Size: 66 lbs
Potential Size: 70 lbs
House Broken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: Needs work
Living With: Foster
History: Owner Surrender 

Good with Kids: Yes-older
Good with Cats: Not likely
Other Dogs OK: Some with slow introductions


Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Beautiful Sasha is looking for a new family and home, one without small animals.  In her last home there were chickens and rabbits which was not a good match.  Sasha is quite confused at this time, unsure how she went from having a home and family to now being in rescue.  In her previous home she did live with children.  Sasha would benefit greatly from being back in a home with a family.

UPDATE: Sasha moved into a foster home about a week ago as it became clear that she was in need of a little extra support adjusting to the loss of her previous home. Although cuddly and affectionate once comfortable, Sasha is somewhat fearful when introduced to new people particularly, if they crowd her or approach too quickly. Due to her lack of socialization, Sasha will require a family that will allow her to slowly integrate into her new home. Guidance, leadership, and training will help Sasha develop into the confident canine citizen we know she can be.

Already crate trained, house broken, and knowing a few commands, Sasha knows how to behave in the household and loves to shadow her people. Amazingly well behaved in the car, Sasha is more than happy to be a traveling companion. She also enjoys toys, long walks, and a comfortable place to snooze - especially if she can keep an eye on her people at the same time. Although Sasha previously lived with a large male dog, she needs time and patience when being introduced to new dogs. Currently living with both a male and female shepherd, Sasha enjoys pack walks with her new housemates. If Sasha sounds like a good match for your family, please ask to meet her today.
