DESCRIPTION:

Bebee was surrendered to us as her former person did not have time for her.  Due to the lack of time and commitment Bebee was left to do as she wished.  A young dog without training, direction, exercise and guidance can find themselves in unsafe situations.  Bebee found herself in one those situations when she was hit by car.  Luckily she did not sustain serious injuries.  She is now in the safety of rescue starting to learn good manners and being properly cared for.  Bebee is somewhat nervous meeting new people, but once she is comfortable with you she is a sweetheart.   We were told she lived with another dog and cats, and has spent time with a toddler.  As she is new to us, we are still learning more about her.

DESCRIPTION:

Bellair made her way to us from a shelter where she had been surrendered, for reasons unknown.  She is new to us, so we are just getting to know her.  We know that she prefers the company of male dogs over female dogs.  She needs training, consistency and a schedule.  Without this she has no idea what her new family expects of her, it is your job to guide and teach her.  She is a pretty petite girl, which will make it easier for leash walks.

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.


Update:

Cayden had a good first week in his foster home. He spent the first day in his crate observing the activities in the house; both the humans and the resident GSD. The next day he came out of his crate and started to explore his foster home. When someone is home to supervise, his crate door is open so that he can find a comfortable spot on one of the dog beds. He did well in his crate for about 3 hrs a couple of times while his foster parents were away during the day. Cayden sleeps in his crate and except for stirring a bit in the early morning hours, he has been quiet and calm all night. He hasn't had any accidents at night or in the house during the day. He goes on 3 or 4 walks each day and he seems to understand that 'outside' is where he needs to do his business. He doesn't seem to mind the noises in the house; even when the big Dyson comes out to vacuum, he went upstairs at first and came right back down and moved around the house as the vacuum came his way. Noises and people outside are of great concern right now to Cayden, which is not surprising for the GA38 dogs - he is fearful and scared of new things he's never experienced before. Cayden usually keeps calm when we enounter a person or a car going by but gets scared wtih noises coming from a playground nearby or several people walking close by. The resident GSD leads the way on our walks with Cayden and he gladly follows her lead and is already getting more confident. He walks nicely on a leash and is learning how to heel thanks to all the volunteers that walked him at the kennel. As with the prior GA38 foster his humans fostered, it will take a little time for Cayden to adjust to his new life and getting comfortable with his new surroundings. Cayden is a handsome, smart and sweet boy and deserves a much better life than he had before he came to MAGSR. Stand by for an update on this sweet boy and contact MAGSR if you're interested in meeting him.

Update:

Cessna has been in her foster home for almost a week, and has surprised her foster family with how quickly she has adjusted to her new environment. She has never been in a house before, so at first, the crate, stairs, TV, refrigerator, microwave, drawers, bags etc were all new things to be wary of. Surprisingly, after only a few repeat introductions to these things, Cessna has quickly gotten comfortable around them. She is taking to crate training well, and snoozes in the crate for our 8 hour work day and does well in the crate at night. She has had no accidents in the house or crate and waits until she goes on a walk to go potty. Cessna has also done well with our two cats. She is curious about them, but does not chase and largely ignores them. She is currently making great progress learning "sit" and "come" commands. While Cessna isn't quite sure what to do with herself in the house, when we take her on walks she is in her element. She is an awesome walking companion. She walks in a near perfect heel position, no pulling, takes correction well and is such a fast learner! She is not reactive to other dogs, bikes, or runners we pass in the park. Her favorite thing is to run through the leaves and sniff everything! Cessna would make someone a great walking, hiking or running partner! Like all the Georgia dogs, Cessna has never been in a home or around a loving family. Even so, she readily accepts pets and even runs up to her foster parents to say hi. She has already come a long way and will need owners who will give her time to adjust, lots of love, and the structure and training to help her know how to navigate her new world as a good canine citizen.


Update:

Cessna has been making good progress in her foster home. Her foster family maintains a strict daily routine for her with structured walks and being fed in her crate, and this has helped her become much more comfortable in the home. She knows her schedule and will whine softly when she knows it's time for her walk, her favorite thing! She will run up to her foster parents wagging her tail because she is excited to go outside. Cessna LOVES being outside and has lots of energy, so her foster parents think she would do best in an active home that will take her on long daily walks, hikes or runs. Her walking manners have been very good, she doesn't pull, or react to other dogs, she heels nicely, and has been getting good at auto-sitting when her handler stops. She does well with these skills as long as she is working with a strong leader. She would do well with an owner who has previous GSD experience, as well as some basic training experience with an adult rescue dog. In the home, Cessna is still working on being comfortable when outside her crate. She has become less afraid of the TV, and has even recently come out of her crate to sit and lay down with her foster family for a few minutes. When she needs her space, she goes back in her crate, where she is most comfortable. She has surprised her foster parents with her interest in chewing a nyla-bone (often the GA dogs don't have any interest in toys/treats...because they've never seen them before!). She is still doing great in her crate during an 8 hour work day and also overnight, with no accidents or whining. Cessna still needs to work on being around lots of people, as she finds busy bustling environments to be overstimulating and scary right now. She also needs more exposure to riding in the car, as this is still a new, nerve-wracking experience for her. Her foster parents are working with her on these skills, and she is making steady progress! Cessna will need an adopter with lots of patience, love, and strong leadership to show her how best to navigate her home and the world as a good canine citizen.

DESCRIPTION:

Geist is a male German Shepherd mix with a beautiful white coat. He is new to the rescue, but a super sweet guy. Geist is lovely with the female dogs, but not so great with male dogs. He's simply a nice fella that prefers the ladies to himself. Geist is good with humans and loving.

Embedded thumbnail for Grace-MAGSR-2018, Embedded thumbnail for Grace-MAGSR-2018
DESCRIPTION:

Grace came to us from a shelter we have no history on her.  Since arriving in our care she has been friendly, she rides well in the car and did well at her vet visit.  She previously lived wth another GSD.  She of course needs training, which help her learn good behavior and manners.  Grace is heartworm positive, this could have been avoided had she been kept on monthly heartworm preventatives.  Grace is in the beginning stages of her heartworm treatment, which of course MAGSR is paying for her entire treatment.  She will have to take it slow for the next few months while undergoes treatment, so lots of rest is in order.

Update:

Grace has completed her heartworm treatment and is now heartworm free. Once Grace bonds with her human and gets comfortable, she becomes protective of her space. This can be easily managed by putting her away in a secure room and/or crate when people come to the home. She will also benefit from a strong leader, who has prior experience with the breed, and who will provide appropriate correction and training. Grace will not meet families with children under the age of 16. Grace is very excited to be able to run and play just like any other dog once again. Now she’s even more interested in finding her forever home and family to share her love with. Could that be your family?


Update:

Miss Grace is just as beautiful, sweet, bouncy, and eager-to-please a dog as you could ask to meet. She’s doing wonderfully in her foster home, crates beautifully, does great out and about in the car and in public places, loves her foster siblings, and bonds tightly to her person. She’s been going to training just about every Saturday for months and has developed very nice obedience – she knows her basic commands, and she is great at staying where she’s been put in a sit or a down and won’t move – well except for her tail which is pretty much always wagging! Grace is protective of her space with people she doesn’t know, and needs consistent handling and proper introductions, but once she warms up to someone, Grace’s wonderfully upbeat and happy personality shines right through – with her bushy happy tail “always on!” Please ask to learn more about Grace if you think she might be a good match for your family.

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:

Johnny is starting to settle in with our volunteers but is still lacking confidence and trust; however, as he gets to know the people he decides to trust more, he greets them with kisses and tail wags. Because of Johnny's insecurities, he would learn from a home with a confident dog to help show him the way forward. Johnny would also do best with a handler who has prior GSD experience as well to help build his confidence with training and reinforcement. Keep an eye on Johnny's progress and ask to meet him if your home may be a good fit for him.

DESCRIPTION:

Liam, along with his siblings Luc and Lieve lived outside without proper care or an adequate amount of food for growing puppies. Thankfully they were brought to our attention and brought into our care. They were underweight, but with proper nutrition they have gained weight. The pups are a mix of Dutch Shepherd (dad) and Belgian Malinois (mom). Both of these breeds are very high energy dogs that require a lot of exercise of both their bodies and minds, along with obedience training, ongoing socialization and direction. It is imperative that you have the time, everyday, to work with them on their training and can meet their exercise needs. We will only consider adopters that have prior experience with working line dogs. Please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family - puppies are a ten to twelve year commitment.

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.

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.


Update:

My foster mom and dad told me that it’s time for me to do some bragging. I’m not entirely sure what that means but I’m going to give it a try. A couple of weeks ago, a MAGSR volunteer told me I was a lucky girl because I was heading into a foster home. I wasn’t so sure that that sounded like a good idea but, wow was I wrong. My foster family has furry siblings of the big and small variety. The kitties are incredibly bossy but, I know they just want to make sure I understand the rules. I absolutely love the dogs in the household. They make me feel confident and are teaching me the ropes. My favorite dog in the house has even started teaching me how to play! Who knew that living in a home could be so much fun? I’m told that I am crate trained at this point and that I am making huge progress with this thing called housebreaking. It took me a few weeks to get the hang of the living in a household; however, I’m a pro at the stairs at this point and I’m getting really good at going in and out of doors. Most household sounds are becoming second nature with fewer and fewer things causing me to jump. Although I am still getting a little nervous in the neighborhood, especially when kids are running around, my foster family says I am doing really well. I tend to stay really close to my handler and only pull when I have a small freak out. They tell me that typically those things happen when new items or unknown people are encountered. There are just so many new things to adjust to. My foster family says that all my progress means that it’s time to start learning some commands. I’m not sure what that entails, but I let you know how it goes.

DESCRIPTION:

Riley’s prior family gave her up after having her for 6 years as they no longer wanted her.  As you can imagine losing her family is upsetting.  She just arrived in our care so we are taking the time to get to know her better.  Riley is hopeful that her next family will commit to her for her lifetime and not just toss her aside.  She is over weight, so a diet and exercise are in order.  Her beautiful long coat is matted and dirty but she will be enjoying a spa day.

DESCRIPTION:

Riptide was originally adopted from a shelter, where he then went on to live his life on a chain with not enough food and no shelter.  This is why it is so important that anyone wanting to adopt a dog is checked out by shelters and rescues.  Riptide was promised a better a life when the shelter adopted him but that is not what he received.  That is all changed now that he is with MAGSR, we will make sure he finds a loving and caring family, that can provide him a home, a comfy bed, good nutrition and care.  Riptide's name is very fitting, he is a high energy boy that is not sure what to do with new found freedom from the chain.  He will need training and structure, along with lots of exercise.  

Update:

Unfortunately, Riptide has been returned to us as his adopter fractured her ankle and is non weight bearing.  With Riptide’s high energy, she was not able to provide his daily exercise requirements.  Riptide was also not doing well with one of their teenage twin daughters.  He was fine with one of them.  He has been to obedience training, but his new family is required to complete training with him.  Training is a great way to learn more about each other, how to work together and create a bond.


Update:

Hello there!  My name is Riptide. I've gone to two lovely homes now, they loved me, but they couldn't handle my energy. I am so afraid I may never have a home of my own.  You see, the first part of my life, I was out on a chain and wasn't shown puppy manners. It seems like all that energy has built up and I've never gotten it out. I have had some training now, so I know sit, down, come and I walk well on a leash. Everyone says I'm a nice boy, I just need a runner, or someone to work me out and train me for cool stuff, things like agility, rally or nose work, or maybe give me another dog to play with so I can get this energy out! They say I'm easy to train because I'm food motivated - I say who doesn't like food? I also love playing in the kiddie pool they have at the kennel where I stay for now, but they said it's too cold now. One lady said something about dock diving, I don't know what that is, but if I get to go in the water, I'm all for it! If you're looking for a pup to do something active with, ask to meet me, you might be just what I'm looking for!

Update:

Tayson has been in a home for the first time in her life for a week now. She is very well behaved in her sturdy, heavy duty crate (she didn’t like the wire crates at all, and easily escaped from them). She is calm and steady in the crate, and has had no accidents in it. Crate training is the first step towards housebreaking, and Tayson seems to be crate-trained at this point. After a week, she is comfortable around her foster mom, but still nervous and fearful when others are around. She gets along well with the resident older female GSD, and seems to take comfort from having another dog nearby. Tayson is walking well on a leash, although she will pull when fearful and trying to move away from something she doesn’t understand or isn’t familiar with; most of the time, however, she is happy to walk along side her foster mom on a loose metal leash. She prefers to eat inside of her crate, especially when no one is watching. She’s had so many new experiences in her first week in a home, and has handled all of them so well and with grace. She is a kind sweet dog who wants to be with people, but is still fearful of too much stimulus and contact at one time. As Tayson gains in confidence and comfort, we are certain that she will continue to make progress, learning to trust and bond with her humans. Stay tuned for future updates of Tayson’s journey to becoming a wonderful future family member. If she sounds like a fit for your family, ask to meet her.


Update:

After a skittish first few weeks, Tayson’s progress learning how to be a dog in a house is accelerating. She is out of her crate and interacting with her foster parents for long stretches of time now. She is becoming the playful spirit we always knew existed, but was hidden for far too long by her previous unfortunate circumstances. Tayson walks well on her leash (except for the exciting moments when deer go running away), and is now curious and interested in everything on the farm. We are starting to take trips off the farm to increase her exposure to new sights, which is both interesting and stressful for her, but necessary. She continues to be accident-free inside the house, and is very good about relieving herself outside on her walks. She is one of the sweetest fosters I have ever had, very quiet, and just incredibly great to have around. If you would like to watch this girl emerge from her shell into being a wonderful family dog, please ask to meet Tayson. She is truly ready to start bonding with you in her forever home.

Teak
TeakTeakTeakTeakTeakTeakTeakTeakTeakTeakTeakTeakTeakTeak
DESCRIPTION:

Teak came to us as his prior family did not have the time for a young, energetic GSD. Unfortunately Teak has not been well socialized with people outside of his prior immediate family.  For this reason Teak is scared and skittish of new people, new places, sights and sounds.  Our volunteers are giving Teak time to settle in and get use to all that is new to him.  He will be starting a training program which will help with not only socialization, but also build his confidence.  Because of Teak's insecurities, he would learn from and do better in a home with a confident dog to help show him the way forward. He will require a GSD experienced family that will continue with his training, socialization and confidence building. He did live with older children and another dog in his prior home.

DESCRIPTION:

Tyson is another product of someone getting a dog then not having time for him.  Yes dogs need your time, your devotion, your commitment to them for their lifetime.  It needs to be a well thought out, realistic decision before getting a pet.  Tyson is now looking for the family who has thought their decision through and will commit to him for his lifetime.  Yes he needs training and daily exercise.  Yes he will try your patience at times and get into things he shouldn’t, but this is where his family comes in.  He needs to be taught good manners and he needs obedience training, which his family needs to provide.  Be sure you have the time and patience for years to come.
