Angel

DESCRIPTION: Angel was surrendered to us as her former person knew that Angel deserved a better life then she could provide. Angel has lived her life for the most part outside. She was brought in during severe weather and crated. She is friendly, although somewhat shy when first meeting new people. She is good with other dogs and was fine with the neighborhood children who would visit her. Yes, it will take training and time to housebreak her but she is so worth it.

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 Aubri 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.

Bella
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Sweet Bella as saved by her guardian Angel who couldn't allow Bella to be mistreated. Bella is a sweet girl who is being fostered in a home with other large dogs and children. Bella is shy at first but warms up once she feels safe. She's been through a lot so she will need a family who can help show her not all human are bad.

Puppies are cute and cuddly, but they require a lot of attention, time and patience from their humans. They have everything to learn and they rely on you to teach them to be good canine citizens. They will get into things, chew, have accidents in the house, whine, want attention and lots of love. They require proper food and vet care for the rest of their lives. In return you will be smothered in puppy kisses and be entertained with puppy antics. We ask that you please be sure that you have the time and patience to raise a puppy and will commit to her for her entire life.

UPDATE: Although Bella had a rough start, things have been looking up since coming to MAGSR. Currently living with both cats and dogs, Bella is doing a great job with everyone. Slow introductions to other animals help Bella gain confidence; however, once introduced, Bella seems to find her place in the pack. An eager and quick learner, Bella now knows a few commands. Sit, down, wait, crate, and paw are all commands in her growing repertoire. As a food motivated learner, Bella is happy to try just about anything with a tasty reward.

As a shadow and a cuddle bug, Bella really just wants to be with her people. It takes a few minutes for her to trust new people but, once comfortable, she simply wants to be with you. This desire to be with others has resulted in some crate anxiety. MAGSR has been working hard to help Bella address these needs. Learning her basic commands has greatly reduced her anxiety. With a routine in place and continued training, Bella will develop the skills needed to become a confident and stable pup.

A bit of a goof ball, Bella loves to play with toys. Bouncing around after a ball, squeaking soft toys, and enjoying nylabones, are activities she enjoys on a daily basis. Playing with others, whether human or furry, is always fun. However, Bella does entertain herself as well. An amazingly funny and joyful little girl, Bella simply brightens your day with her presence. If she sounds like the right dog for you, please inquire about Bella today.

cara
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Sweet Cara has not had a very good life, her lack of care is obvious from her body condition and health. Cara came to us underweight, covered in feces, a wound to the tip of her ear, covered in ticks (over 30 were pulled from her), a belly full of worms and a bacterial infection of her intestines. We quickly got Cara to the vet for the care she needed, blood work was done and it was discovered that Cara is also Heartworm positive.

Well, life has quickly gotten better for Cara. She is receiving antibiotics and being wormed. We will wait to treat her for the Heartworm infection until she is healthier and has gained some much needed weight. Cara is now in a loving foster home being loved and well cared for. We have promised Cara that she will never want for anything again and will have a wonderful life. After all that Cara has endured her love for life and humans has not been dampened. She is a sweet, friendly girl who loves to be with her people getting attention.

cheri
Camera Click here for more pictures

 

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: Little Lilly found herself in a scary shelter hoping that someone would get her out before her time was up. Lilly is a smaller girl and looks like a puppy but it is believed that she is around 1 year old. We realize that she is not the size of a typical GSD but she is so darn cute and sweet we could not leave her behind. Lilly is a good size for someone who wants the traits of a GSD without the size. Please ask to meet our newest pocket Shepherd. She would love to meet you!

DESCRIPTION: Lucy is a beautiful 1 year old girl who is looking for her forever home and family. Unfortunately her former family, with their long work days, were not able to provide the daily exercise that a GSD of this age requires. Knowing that she deserved more they surrendered her so that she could have the life she deserves. Lucy is crate trained, loves playing in the water and taking baths. She enjoyed her outings to the dog park, socializing with other dogs. She is a friendly and loving girl who would fit into most families who have the time 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.

Sammi
Camera Click here for more pictures

 

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.

Star
Camera Click here for more pictures

DESCRIPTION: Star along with her fur sister Sammi were surrendered to us after tragically losing both of their humans in just a few days of each other. Star was adopted from us as a puppy, becoming a younger sister to Sammi and a much loved member of the family. While Star did live with Sammi there were some spats that took place between the girls. for this reason we are not sure at this time if Star would be good living with another dog or not. As she has just arrived into our care we will need some time to get to know her better in order to know what type of family/home would be best suited for her. Understandably so, both girls are quite confused and mourning the loss of their family. Our volunteers are helping the girls through this with lots of love and understanding.

UPDATE: Star has met a number of dogs during her time with us, she has done really well with playful male dogs and non-dominant females. She is such a sweet and playful girl, enjoys going for walks and playtime.  She is well mannered and walks nicely on a leash.  Star would do best in a home with children 16 years and older or an adult only home.

Puppies are cute and cuddly, but they require a lot of attention, time and patience from their humans. They have everything to learn and they rely on you to teach them to be good canine citizens.
