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.

Bayli

DESCRIPTION: Aubri, Bayli, Capri & Demi were breeding dogs, once their breeder had no use for them they were dumped at a shelter.  Well their breeding days are over and it is time for them to know unconditional love and happiness.

All 4 of the girls are so sweet, just looking to be loved and cared for, in return they will give unconditional love to their people.  Walking on a leash is new to them, but they are catching on quickly.  They have so much to learn and experience, could your family help them with that?  Ask to meet Bayli to see if she is a good fit for your family.

UPDATE: In June, Bayli had mammary gland tumors removed and sent for biopsy. Results were recently received and it appears that one of the tumors removed was low-level malignant. However, the surgeons & biopsy report state that there were clean margins and they did not see any further issues, Bayli's prognosis is very good.  She can now move on and live her life like any other dog.

cheri

DESCRIPTION: Meet Cheri who is named in loving memory of Cheri Myers who passed away on Sunday, May 10, 2015. Cheri Myers was an honorary MAGSR volunteer who spent many hours on the road with her Dad, MAGSR volunteer Bill Myers, rescuing GSD's in need. She will be deeply missed by us all.

GSD Cheri was a stray to a MD shelter with a horrible skin infection. When no one came to claim her, MAGSR took her in. Upon exam, Cheri was found to have multiple tumors, which will be removed and biopsied after her skin infection clears. Right now it is too dangerous to remove them. Cheri is a sweet girl who loves car rides, people and is housebroken.

UPDATE: It has been a busy couple months for Cheri. It took a little longer than expected to get her skin condition under control in order to allow us to remove Cheri’s tumors. However, with a combination of medicines, shampoos, special wipes, and dietary changes, Cheri made slow but steady progress and has now grown out a lovely black and red coat. With her skin clearing up, MAGSR was able to move forward with her tumor removal.

Towards the end of June, Cheri had nine mammary gland tumors removed and sent for biopsy. Her surgeons were very happy with how she handled the surgery. An amazing patient, Cheri was a perfect lady throughout her recovery and handled her restrictions very well. Results were recently received and it appears that a few of the tumors removed were low-level malignant. However, as the surgeons feel there were clean margins and they did not see any further issues, Cheri has a good prognosis. She can now move on and live her life like any other dog.

Although Cheri has clearly been through a lot, she is an amazing lady. She is playful, goofy, affectionate, and independent. In typical shepherd manner, Cheri bonds quickly. She is protective of her family and confident in who she is. Cheri is a ball girl. We hardly see her without one. She enjoys having a ball tossed or chasing one around the house all on her own. As Cheri has already been through a lot, she would be best placed in a household without any other dogs. This will allow her to receive all of the love and attention a special girl like her deserves.

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: Lily was surrendered to MAGSR by her owner who did not realize the cost of owning a dog. Lily is a sweet girl with puppy tendencies. She loves to play with her foster bothers in the back yard and snuggle with them at night. She is housebroken and crate trained but does need some obedience training like all pups her age. She seems to do well with a family who has a yard she can run in and a pup or two to play with. Ask to meet Lily and help give her a forever home.

DESCRIPTION: Maybel is a long legged girl, she is quite tall and very pretty. Maybel was surrendered as her family could no longer care for her. She is friendly, but does need a little time to warm up to new people. Maybel requires more socialization both with other dogs and new people. Training will help with both socialization and learning what is expected of her, it also helps create a bond with her new family. Maybel is enjoying the comforts of a foster home along with the company of other dogs.

SADIE mAE
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Sadie May here, I am a rambunctious 8 month old so I am told! But only because I have soo much energy to burn, I am a puppy don't they know!! I know commands, I sit real pretty and I know down and something called leave it. I want to learn more!! I like other dogs, I like to play. I love fetch its my FAVORITE thing! My ears stick up like radar ears but sometimes they flop down. I am learning how to walk better on a leash, I like this whole learning thing I hope my new family continues to teach me new stuff, its fun. I like to be right next to you its like snuggling.  

Please be sure you have the time and patience to devote to a puppy, they are a lot of work, requiring lots of exercise both mentally and physically.  Training is a requirement, as is socialization with other dogs and people of all ages.  The benefit is a well mannered, socialized dog.

DESCRIPTION: Sammi and her MAGSR sibling Star were surrendered to us after the tragic and traumatic loss of their two humans within just a few days of each other.  Sammi is an older girl and was understandably anxious and confused upon being pulled from her lifelong home and family, but her grace, gentle demeanor, and impeccable manners in the face of her loss are a wonderful testament to the years of love and care she received from her family.   Sammi seems to take comfort from the company of her foster family both human and canine, and is beginning to form new bonds as a bolster against her loss.  Sammi can still sometimes be a little cautious meeting new people, but she is so very sweet and very well trained. She knows her basic commands, walks well on leash, and is very cordial and relaxed with her canine housemates.  And even though she is elderly and has some physical issues, she is ALWAYS ready to go, and perks up like a puppy when she sees the leash come out.  Sammi is a very special girl and every minute spent with her is a pleasure, and she deserves the very best we can give her in the time she has left.

UPDATE: Sammi is doing very well in her foster home. She has lost over 15 pounds, which has given both her mobility and stamina nice boosts. Of course Sammi is no spring chicken but she showed us what she has when she up and bolted after a rabbit in the yard the other day -- and almost caught it! She is a very sweet and well-behaved girl, and loves to go out and about with her foster siblings. She does have some orthopedic issues as you might expect of an older GSD, but they don't seem to bother or slow her down too awfully much. She can be a bit excitable when she wants something (like dinner!) and she is a bit of watch dog, and barks at the door knocker and needs introductions to new people in the house, but she is always polite to everyone out on the street, and is easy to manage on leash even in busy public areas. Sammi is a wonderful girl with a spunky cheerful way about her that seems to make her years melt away when she's happy and engaged in her surroundings. Please ask to meet Sammi if you would consider opening your heart and home to this lovely older girl.
