TitanTitanTitanTitanvTitanTitanTitanTitanTitanTitanTitanTitanTitanTitanTitanTitanTitanTitanTitanTitanTitanTitanTitanTitanTitanTitanTitan
DESCRIPTION:

Titan's human dad took ill and can no longer care for him.  Titan has had some turmoil in his life and will need time to adjust to the changes in his life.  He lived with teenagers in his temporary home before being surrendered to us.  Stability, structure and training will help him tremendously, this also helps build a bond between the dog and family.  At only 2 years old he does have lots of energy, lots of mental and physical exercise will help burn that young dog energy.

Updates:
  • Titan a very handsome, long haired GSD with a lot to offer.  He can sit, down, stay, walks well on a leash, loads in the car easily and takes treats very gently.  He's fine being brushed, AND having mats removed which is very important with his beautiful long coat.  Titan is a wonderful boy who will make someone a loyal companion.

Dakota Dakota Dakota Dakota Dakota Dakota Dakota Dakota Dakota Dakota Dakota Dakota
DESCRIPTION:

Dakota came to us from a shelter.  We have been told that she is a people person, enjoying being by your side and following you around.  She also adores children according to the report we received.  She has been around cats, but she seeks them out to play.  This may be too rough for some cats if not properly managed.  We are also told that she is good with dogs of all sizes.  Sadly it looks as though she was used for breeding then dumped.  She has no leash skills at this time, but this is something our volunteers will work on.  She requires training to teach her good manners.  She has energy as she is young and will require daily exercise.

Strax adopted
StraxStraxStraxStraxStraxStraxStraxStraxStraxStraxStraxStraxStrax
DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Strax found himself in a shelter when his family dumped him there.  The shelter staff love him very much and took very good care of him.  Strax has some skin issues which we are having looked into by a vet.  We are not sure if it's allergies to food, environmental or if it's something else.  His food has been changed to a grain free and he's on fish oil, it will take some time to see if this helps.  Strax lived with children in his previous home, he was cat tested at the shelter and he did well so he may be able to live in a home with cats.  He is such a well mannered, even keeled boy.  He takes everything in stride, welcomes all people he meets and will play bow when introduced to other dogs.  Strax seems to be an overall well balanced boy who would fit well into anyone's life.

Updates:
  • Strax is a very laid back boy, easy to walk, wants to be around you all the time, loves people, wants to meet everybody, good with other dogs, is crate trained, loves ice cubes. Bottom line, Strax is amazing! His foster parents cannot go to the refrigerator without him running up and looking at the freezer for his ice cube. Strax thrives on making his humans happy. His foster parents call him their dream dog because he is so easy and dedicated. Strax LOVES his donated Nylabone as much as we love Strax!  Strax would be an amazing family dog in his furever home. Does Strax sound like the perfect fit for you? If so, ask to meet him.

Oso
OsoOsoOsoRexRexRexRexRexRexRexOsoOsoOsoOsoOsoOsoOsoOsoOsoOsoOsoOsoOsoOso
DESCRIPTION:

Oso a very handsome, big boy weighing in at 105 lbs.  Although he is large, he is a gentle giant.  Oso's favorite activity is to play with balls, the more balls the better, yes even soccer and basketball size balls.  It is imperative that all dogs go through obedience training and Oso is not exception.  With a dog of this size you want to have good manners, this will make walking him on a leash much more enjoyable. 

Unfortunately Oso was returned to us.  Family members moved into his home, after he had lived there over a year, with small dogs that Oso did not get along with, so he got the boot.  He was fine with the neighbors female GSD.  He came back to us over weight so he has been put on diet, that along with exercise he should be down a good weight in no time.  

Updates:
  • Oso sure does LOVE balls, all sizes, squeaky and otherwise, this boy goes nuts for them!  He's a very calm, loving sweetheart who will be a great companion on walks or just hanging around.  He's easy on the leash, takes treats gently, sits nicely for brushing and knows basic commands.  A training class will help with bonding to this honey of a dog, once complete you will have a wonderful friend.  Just look at that smile, with his size and demeanor, he's sure to impress!

  • Oso has been a very good boy in his foster home and very respectful. Oso knows sit and stay until he gets his release command before he goes for his food and he is working on and getting better about taking treats gently. Oso loves belly rubs and loves being petted on the head and around the ears (he's a real fan of shoulder massages). Oso will give his human kisses. Oso is working on his leash manners and after walking a bit, will settle into a nice heel. Oso is a very kind and gentle soul. If Oso sounds like a good fit for your family, ask to meet him. 

  • Oso is settling into his new foster home more day by day. He know basic commands such as sit and down. With a strong leader, he walks well on a leash. Oso is completely house broken and has had no accidents in the house although he doesn't know which door to go to because he hasn't been in his new foster home long enough to know. Oso loves being pet and let's you know he wants attention. He is well behaved in his crate when he can't hear or see anyone. When he knows his humans are around, he wants to be with them. Oso loves being in his foster home but he would love a furever home instead.

Sarge
SargeSargeSargeSarge
DESCRIPTION:

Hi  friends, my name is Sarge and I am interviewing prosepctive forever families. Let me explain my situation and get you up to speed. I managed to get myself in quite a pickle as I landed myself in local  shelter as a stray. I am not really sure what a stray is but I will figure that out later.  The accommodations were not bad. They were really nice to me and I did get a warm bed and two squares a day! It was kind of rough though because I was use to em... certain luxeries. I was at this place for about a month when they told me my foster family was coming to pick me up and bring me home! They are amazing and I am really living it up here wth them but foster mean temporary until my perfect home presents itself. They told me I can stay as long as I need to which makes me so happy. I even heard them say they were taking me to acupuncture this weekend so I am hoping that is some sort of massage and they provide treats! I will update later on how that goes.. So dont worry, I am in a good place as I interview

So back to my requirements.. you know a senior gentleman has certain needs and things we become accustomed to. I like a soft orthopedic bed with a blanky, I demand regular head and belly scratches, and daily treats. And let's be clear, I DONT enjoy steps and can only get up or down one or two steps because I sustained a bad pelvic injury in my younger days that never healed correctly so I only get around on three legs. My back leg is pretty useless although it does help to steady me when begging at the table... I have learned to compensate for my injury and do still enjoy playing and romping in the yard. My new family will need to provide some pain meds and supplements to help keep me as pain free as possible. Here is a positive.. I am totally house broken but do require to be let out every few hours as in my old age I just can't hold it as long as when I was a young buck.. My favorite past time aside from eating is sleeping because don't forget I am a senior boy and require several naps.. I am the most laid back guy that you will ever meet! I like my doggie friends big and small! I am just an all around great companion and just want a person to call my own. I will follow you around and lay at your feet! If you feel you could be my forever family and provide for my senior needs please apply above! Love Sarge

Autumn
AutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumnAutumn is fearless when playing tug-o-war!Autumn
DESCRIPTION:

Autumn cannot be any cuter and is absolutely a great little girl, happy go lucky and loves to give puppy kisses.  Autumn has a lot to learn about going a good canine citizen and will require training.  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.  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, Autumn will become even more of an amazing girl than she already is.  Please inquire if Autumn sounds like a good match for your family.

Updates:
  • Autumn is a loving, fiesty, high energy puppy.  She's getting along great with her foster brothers and sister.  She enjoys squeaky toys, kongs, nylabones, tennis shoe inserts, tennis shoe strings, charging cords - did we mention she was a puppy?  She is learning "no" quickly, sits nicely for treats and settles after minimal protest in the crate for the night.  With the proper training that every dog needs, she's going to make someone a wonderful companion!

  • Autumn is doing well learning the manners she had not been taught during her rough start to life. Autumn sits for treats and also before she is fed. She settles in her crate for some quiet time and at night for bed. She loves toys of any kind, including balls, stuffed toys, nylabones - and still has a love of shoes, but now knows 'leave it' so drops them when told. Autumn gets along well with her foster brothers and sister, as long as they're ready to play!  Autumn is feisty and appears to want to be the dominant one. Autumn's fosters are still working on the no teeth rule with her, as she gets pretty excited getting out of her crate. Ask to meet Autumn and you won't be disappointed.

LunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLunaLuna
DESCRIPTION:

Luna along with other family members were dumped at shelter.  Not often we are happy when dogs are dumped at shelters, but in this families case they are lucky they were.  The family of Shepherds lived outside, no vet care, no vaccines, no preventatives.  They were all crawling with fleas and ticks.  When Luna arrived we noticed she has lazy eyes and was uncoordinated, along with a lump on her head.  The vet did a thorough exam, Luna's eye sight seems fine, but the vet feels that she may have suffered from head trauma which caused the lump and the unsteadiness.  She may or may not improve with time.  With all of that aside she is a beautiful, playful and curious puppy.  She deserves a special family who sees the beauty she is.  Please be prepared for a puppy as they are time consuming, they need training, socialization, lots of exercise and a lifetime of love and care.  Yes, puppies chew things they shouldn't, they get into things, they have potty accidents and they have lots of energy.

Updates:
  • Luna is doing very well in her foster home. Luna pounces everywhere and loves to play with her foster brother and gets along well with the other resident dogs as well, who are all much bigger than she is. Luna's foster parents are teaching her how to do steps in the home and she's working hard to master them. Luna is food motivated, incredibly affectionate and loves everyone - she loves to snuggle and give licks and kisses. If Luna sounds like a good fit for your family, please ask to meet this sweet girl.

Astro
AstroAstroAstroAstroAstroAstroAstroAstroAstroAstro
DESCRIPTION:

Astro came to us an owner surrender.  This is a perfect example why you do not get a child a dog and expect them to be the caregiver.  The child, after 3 weeks no longer was interested in caring for him, even though he promised he would.  The parent did not have time, nor the knowledge to care for a GSD puppy.  Astro did not have training and was doing your typical puppy behaviors...chewing, jumping, nipping.  Without structure, guidance and training to teach good manners his puppy behaviors continued as no one taught him otherwise.  Astro is now in the care of a loving foster learning acceptable behaviors, good manners, getting lots of exercise and structure.  Astro is a sweet boy, he will need a family to continue to provide him with training and structure, along with positive reinforcement.

DESCRIPTION:

Emilia along with other family members were dumped at a shelter.  Not often we are happy when dogs are dumped at shelters, but in this families case they are lucky they were.  The family of Shepherds lived outside, no vet care, no vaccines, no preventatives.  They were all crawling with fleas and ticks.  Emilia is so very sweet, she enjoyed spending time with our volunteers being loved on.  Right now she is more comfortable with women, she can be skittish of men.  She did well in the car and at the vets for her exam.  Emilia has never been on a leash, she is working on that.  Training will help her build self confidence and form a bond with her new family.  Emilia deserves to know what a real family is, one that will love, care for and cherish her.

Amber
AmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmberAmber
DESCRIPTION:

Amber was surrendered to us as she was not getting along with the other resident female dog.  Amber likes to be the alpha, so she would do better with a non dominant dog.  She has been around children and did well.  She also did well with a visiting a larger laid back dog, although she does play rough.  As you can imagine her world as she knew it has been turned upside down.  We are giving her time to settle in so that we can get to know her better.

Updates:
  • Amber is a well mannered girl who does well walking on a leash or just sitting at your feet. Regardless of what you're doing, she is happy, so long as she with you. She is a serious pup, that is reserved around strangers. Once you've earned her trust she's a very warm and loving dog. Amber isn't the dog that's going to jump and bark to show her affection. She's the dog that walks up, rubs up against your leg, then sits down and leans on you to accept your calm affection. Amber can sit and stay, but is still working on down. This is a very well mannered lady that will make someone a wonderful companion!

Sophia
SophiaSophiaSophiaSophiaSophiaSophiaSophiaSophiaSophiaSophiaSophiaSophiaSophiaSophiaSophia
DESCRIPTION:

Sophia along with other family members were dumped at shelter.  Not often we are happy when dogs are dumped at shelters, but in this families case they are lucky they were.  The family of Shepherds lived outside, no vet care, no vaccines, no preventatives.  They were all crawling with fleas and ticks.  Sophia has a secondary skin infection caused by the flea infestation.  She is currently on antibiotics.  She is so very sweet, she enjoyed spending time with our volunteers being loved on.  She did well in the car and at the vets for her exam.  Sophia deserves to know what a real family is, one that will love, care for and cherish her.

Updates:
  • Sophia has settled nicely into her foster home. It is a big transition from being outside all of the time to being in a home with a family. When Sophia first arrived, she sat by the door expecting to be put outside. Over time, she is understanding that inside with her people is a good place to be. She sleeps in her crate without whining or crying unless she needs to go out. Sophia loves treats and takes them very gently even from the resident children. She also loves walks but is a little hesitant of things she doesn't know. Sophia is getting medicated baths a few times a week to help clear up some skin issues she currently has from her past neglect before MAGSR. But, Sophia is a trooper and takes everything in stride. If you're looking for a dog that will bond to you for life, Sophia is the girl for you!

Rocky adopt
RockyRockyRockyRockyRockyRockyRockyRockyRockyRockyRockyRockyRockyRocky
DESCRIPTION:

Rocky was an owner surrender as his person had no time for him.  It is so important when taking on the responsibility of a pet that you have the time and patience to work with.  Rocky is a 6 month old untrained big puppy.  He was not taught any manners, nor were his puppy behaviors addressed.  He will jump on people, he is mouthy, will chew things he shouldn't and have accidents in the house.  He is in need a good training program and a family that will teach him acceptable behavior.  Socializing him with lots of people and other dogs is critical, as it is with all dogs.  Due to his lack of manners we will not place him in a home with very young children.  He will need a strong leader who is willing to work with him and burn off his high puppy energy.  Prior puppy GSD experience is required.

Updates:
  • Rocky has made good progress with socialization and rules in his foster home. He goes for walks with the resident GSD several times a day and passes many other unruly dogs in the community and he is learning to be on his best behavior and waits in a sit until they pass. Rocky is learning he does not have to be jealous of other dogs and getting attention and by waiting patiently for his turn, he gets a lot of love and attention. Rocky is working on sit, place and heel and is learning quickly. Rocky is nervous meeting people and doesn't like people approaching him until he's ready to meet them. Rocky is being desensitized to random objects around the house like trash cans, recycle bins and yard signs - all things that when initially in his foster home, freaked him out. Rocky is an insecure boy that needs confidence that everything isn't going to hurt him. He is learning to trust his foster mom and his loving personality is coming out towards her and he sits at her feet whenever he can. It will take time for Rocky to build trust with his human - patience, commitment and training is a must with Rocky. If Rocky sounds like a good fit for your household, please ask to meet him.

Jackson adopt
JacksonJacksonJacksonJacksonJacksonJacksonJacksonJacksonJacksonJacksonJacksonJacksonJacksonJacksonJacksonJacksonJackson
DESCRIPTION:

Happy birthday Jackson! Today was Jackson's special day and we are doing everything we can to celebrate his life. Jackson came to MAGSR after he was surrendered to a shelter. We are still learning about him. But here is what we know so far. Stay tuned for updates.

He appears to have been neglected as he is very thin. However, he is interested in his food when his people are with him. He is incredibly sweet and is such a mild mannered boy. He is very quiet but is inquisitive about everything that is new to him. He is very curious about other dogs. Yet is respectful of them and has shown the desire to play with dogs that are respectful of him. Jackson does not seem to know what toys are about which is very sad. But he is  happy to hang out, relax and enjoy head scratches and belly rubs. He stresses during car rides and does not stay in one place. But remains quiet throughout. Today, he was at peace lying on the grass, decompressing as he was watching the squirrels in the trees after all the changes he has been through. He will need a family that is patient, consistent and empathetic for what he may have experienced in his life previous to MAGSR. However, he walks well on leash and is happy to go where you want to explore. He will thrive with someone to show him all the world has to offer. At the present time, he doesn't appear to be a lap dog but at the same time, is a dog who is looking for someone to bond with.

Updates:
  • Jackson has settled in nicely to his new foster home. He is house broken and a real love. Jackson loves the resident children and frequently just curls up next to them for some love while he relaxes. Right now Jackson is working on putting on some weight and has a lower energy level. As he gains weight, we are sure his energy level will increase. Jackson walks beautifully on a leash. He doesn't pull or lunge at anything including squirrels, deer, other dogs or cars. If you are looking for a loyal companion, please ask to meet Jackson. He'll be a wonderful addition to any family!

Axel
AxelAxelAxel
DESCRIPTION:

Axel was surrendered to us as he barked and whined too much.  At only 7 months old he is still very much a puppy that needs guidance, structure, exercise and most importantly training.  A young dog is a busy and energetic dog that needs both physical and mental exercise, without they become bored.  Axel lived with 3 young children in his previous home and did very well with them.  He also lived with another large breed dog who he got along with.  Currently he is underweight, but with good nutrition and regular meals he should start gaining.  With the recent changes in his life he is somewhat shy, but with stability and having the love of a new family he should gain his confidence.

GraceGraceGraceGraceGraceGrace
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.

SawyerSawyerSawyerSawyerSawyerSawyerSawyerSawyer
DESCRIPTION:

Sawyer came to us an owner surrender.  In his previous home he lived with young children, unfortunately one of the children is autistic and he was not treating Sawyer kindly.  Sawyer would growl, then get up and move away.  This was not fair to Sawyer so the family felt it was best for Sawyer to find a new home where he would be treated kindly.  He is a handsome long hair boy, his coat does need some care and a good grooming.  His foster mom has been working on getting the matts out and Sawyer will be having a spa day.  He has made himself at home in his foster home, he's a very nice boy.

DESCRIPTION:

Ballot came to us an owner surrender as his former person took ill and could no longer care for him.  He is a large, very handsome, long haired male.  His coat is not in the best condition at this time as he did not receive the grooming a long coated dog requires.  He will be a having a spa day to remove dirt and matted fur.  He is a friendly boy, he does need to learn some good manners which training will help with him,

Updates:
  • Howdy! Ballot checking in. I'm very happy here and my humans love me a lot. We have a lot of fun. I'm learning a lot too....mostly what not to do. I've started making a list of things I'm not supposed to do:

    • Steal towels, especially when they are wrapped around a human.
    • Get in the shower with my humans.
    • Lift the lid on the toilet to get a drink.
    • Bite the hand of the person throwing my ball.
    • Counter-surf
    • Sit on the tables
    • Sit on the kids laying on the floor
    • Recycling bin inspections.
    • Run off with socks and underwear laid out for the kids
    • Nibble while giving kisses.
    • Run off with and hide shoes.
    • Look the humans in the eye while we're both standing
    • Lay on the kids while cleaning their faces (this is very hard not to do because they are really squeaky when you do this)
    • Pick out my own books from the bookshelves.
    • Put both front feet in the water bowl when drinking.
    • Open the door myself.
    • Grab and eat the fish food containers

    Did I mention that I'm pretty? I'm also pretty good at getting in my crate when told, and waiting for the humans to go up and down the stairs first. I'm learning to sit and wait for the humans to go through the door first. I love to play ball and am very good at catching them in the air. They tell me I'm pretty smart and learning quickly, I just have a lot to learn right now. I'm very friendly with all the humans that come in the house and the ones we meet outside too. I don't let my humans get too far away because they like me to keep an eye on them. I love love love the pool and get in it everytime I go outside.

    I get fed three times a day and am trying to add a few pounds to help me fill out a bit. My humans comb and condition my hair everyday, it makes me smell awesome and my hair is sooo soft now. I still have a few clumps behind my ears and at the back of my head but we're working on them.

    The pool is calling my name so I better get going. Bark at ya laterz,

Murphy

ADOPTED 08/12/2018!

Murphy
MurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphyMurphy
DESCRIPTION:

Murphy made his way to us from a shelter where he was a stray.  We have no past history for him, so we are getting to know him.  He requires a slower approach when meeting new people.   He is in need of training which will help him learn good manners, build his confidence and bond with his new family.

Updates:
  • Murphy is an interesting high energy pup. He’s likely had very little structure in his life to this point and is in need of a strong willed person or family to help guide his future and provide consistent and strong structure, especially with his indoor manners. He’s easy to leash up and walk, both on long and short leash. He’s loves car rides but seems unfamiliar with exiting or entering the car. He is unfamiliar with stairs but is learning to handle them quickly. He has a very high ball drive and will bring the ball back to his human as long as the ball is thrown again. Murphy loves his humans of all ages and wants to be with them always. He needs some work on his manners and is prone to countertop surfing. He also needs help learning that his crate is a safe place to stay. He takes treats gently and is very treat motivated. He is happy to work with anyone willing to give him a chance, could that be you?

  • Murphy is a sweet boy who takes time to get to know you.  Once he decides you're his friend, you are allowed the honor of bestowing belly rubs!  And then come the kisses!  He's great on leash, sitting at stops while in heel, knows basic obedience and follows his handler. He's VERY food driven, which is a very handy training tool.  He is going to need someone who can commit to the exercise and training he needs to keep his mind and body healthy.  He's such a handsome boy, do you think you have room for Murphy in your heart and home?

Shasta

ADOPTED 08/12/2018!

Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Age at adoption: 2 yrs
Color: Black & Tan

Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No
Living With: Kennel
History: Owner Surrender

Good With Kids: Older kids, over 12
Good With Cats: Unknown
Other Dogs OK: Yes, non-dominant only

ShastaShastaShastaShastaShastaShastaShastaShastaShastaShastaShastaShastaShastaShasta
DESCRIPTION:

Shasta has lived her life in a crate, up to 23 hours a day.  Due to this she is under socialized and fearful.  She needs an adopter that has experience, has the time and patience to help her to adjust to life outside of a crate.  A good training program and commitment from her person is very much needed.  She has met other dogs and handled non dominate dogs the best, she ran away from dogs that were trying to dominate her.  Due to her fearfulness we will not place her in a home with young children.  Shasta is learning to trust our volunteers, but requires a slow approach.  She relaxed some when she was introduced to a squeaky toy, she ran and jumped around like a puppy.

Shasta will only meet potential adopters who have experience with GSD's that are not well socialized.  Shasta needs a home where she is safe, a quieter home without a lot of commotion. At this time she is a flight risk and will require to be on leash when outside.  She will not meet families with children under the age of 12.  

Updates:
  • Shasta has made a lot of progress while in our care.  She has come out of her shell and has gained confidence, she  is no longer fearful.  She has become silly, outgoing and playful.   She is friendly with people and excited to see our volunteers.  Shasta still needs to learn how to properly interact with other dogs.  Her overly excited approach when meeting other dogs may not be tolerated by other dogs.  She loves the water and her squeaky toy, a pool keeps her quite occupied and provides her humans with entertainment.  She has energy to spare, so a family who has the time and energy to work with her both physically and mentally will help keep her energy in check.  If you are looking for a laid back dog, Shasta is not for you.  If you enjoy running, long walks and lots of playtime Shasta would be a great choice.

DESCRIPTION:

Tzar came to us as an owner surrender as his human mom recently had surgery that kept her from being able to provide him with any exercise.  Wanting what was best for him, she entrusted us to find him a family that could provide him a life he deserves.  In his previous home he lived with cats and got along fine.  He did well meeting other dogs and children while being walked.  He seems to be a well rounded boy with a great disposition.  Of course training will help not only Tzar, but his new family learn more about each other and set things up for a lifetime of good manners

DESCRIPTION:

Takoda is such a sweet boy, he has a wonderful disposition.  He is young and does require training, but with his smarts and wanting to please his people, he will be the rock star of his training class.  He has done well with the many dogs of varying sizes he has met, and he has done well meeting children.  Prior to arriving in our care he tested positive for heartworm, we will have another test done by our vet to confirm.  If Takoda is heartworm positive he will need to undergo heartworm treatment.  This is paid for by MAGSR, Heartworm treatment requires that the dog remain calm, no over exertion.  This means short leash walks for pottying, no running or jumping and crate rest until the treatment protocol has been completed.  If you are considering Takoda please be sure you are committed to seeing him through treatment, following the guidelines without exception.

DESCRIPTION:

Mochi came to us as a stray from a shelter.  It is hard to believe that no one was looking for him, he is absolutely a wonderful boy.  He is friendly with everyone he meets, just an overall friendly boy.  He enjoys playing with other dogs, lots of playtime helps him burn off the energy of a young dog.  Mochi is certainly ready to move on and to meet his new family.

 

Updates:
  • Mochi has gotten comfortable in his foster home. Mochi is very social with his foster family and resident dog. He prefers to be in the room that his humans are in - he is a loving boy that will snuggle right up with his humans. Mochi loves to be scratched under his chin and behind his ears. He loves the resident children and everyone that comes to the house to visit. Mochi is housebroken and is learning his basic commands. He walks nicely on a leash, enjoys his time outside and even enjoys being brushed. Mochi loves to play with a ball although he's still working on the fetch component of ball playing. Mochi is great in the crate during the day but also has been no trouble whatsoever if given a room to hang out in while he waits for his humans. Are you ready for a fun loving boy that will adore you forever? If so, ask for Mochi!

SallySallySallySallySallySallySallySallySallySallySallySallySallySilly SallySallySallySallySallySallySally
DESCRIPTION:

Sally came to us with no former history, so we are getting to know her.  She is quite skittish, but has shown no aggression, she just wants to hide.  For this reason she is a flight risk and will need to be walked on a leash, even in a fenced yard.  With training, structure and guidance Sally will build her confidence.   Once bonded to her new family, which takes time and patience, trust will be gained.  Due to her being a flight risk this time, we will not place her in a home with young children who could accidentally open a door allowing Sally to escape.  She loves her crate as it is her safe place.  With the crate door open she will freely go in.  She is in a foster home where she is learning to trust humans, becoming accustomed to the sights, sounds and smells of a home and being around humans that love her.  Sally will need a family who will take the time to show her that humans are not mean, that she is safe and loved.  She does not need to be coddled, she needs someone who will take the time to help her move past her fears, relax and learn to enjoy life.

Kona
KonaKonaKona
DESCRIPTION:
Kona is extremely affectionate and loving. He's a very big boy, but believes he is a lapdog and would love to show anyone his belly that will let him. He's very strong and active and loves people. He gets a little too excited when people come to his house and barks but quickly calms after a couple of minutes.

Kona has been to obedience training and was deemed a friendly, smart, stubborn dog. He has been gentle with a baby and toddler and never showed any aggression towards people. Kona thrived in a home with another Shepherd, cat, baby, and toddler. He would occasionally play a little rough with the cat but the cat ultimately always put Kona in his place. Kona does have a strong prey drive with small animals like squirrels and sometimes small dogs and cats.

Kona needs to be properly cared for around small animals because he doesn't always know his strength.  He's mostly very easy going and loves to be loved and give love to his family. He loves walks and belly rubs and just laying around the house with his other fur friends and family.

Copper
CopperCopperCopperCopperCopperCopperCopperCopper
DESCRIPTION:

Copper was surrendered to a shelter as the family had 8 dogs which was against county pet laws.  He is wonderful with other dogs. He is somewhat timid and looks to his person for guidance and direction.  He feels much more comfortable when his person is a confident handler.  He enjoys curling up in your lap and being loved on.  

Updates:
  • Copper is a very gentle and loving young dog, and so handsome with his beautiful white coat.  He is on the sensitive and introverted side of things and so is very comfortable and doing well in his quiet foster home, with the older and easygoing resident dogs.  Copper needs extra time to meet new people, and needs a light touch to learn and trust in new situations, but once he accepts you he is very sweet and very affectionate, and wants nothing more than just to be with you.  With careful exposure he is getting more comfortable each day with crowds, loud noises, unexpected motion, etc., but he has limits and will do best in a more quiet, slow moving, and nurturing environment.  Copper is housebroken, crates well, loves other dogs, and loves to run with his foster dad for exercise. Copper is a gentle spirit that will make a wonderful addition to the right family that can provide the gentle but firm love and leadership he needs to thrive. Could that be you?

DESCRIPTION:

Zeus was adopted from us as an 8 week old puppy.  He was returned as the adopter claims he is moving and could not find housing that would allow a large breed dog.  Zeus is a wonderful, friendly boy.  He needs some brushing up on his obedience training.  He is over weight and could use to lose pounds, walks, and playtime along with cutting back on his food intake will help him reach optimal weight.  He was often left with a pet sitter who had children and cats, he did fine with all.  In his previous home he lived with other dogs without problems.  Zeus will make a great family addition, please ask to meet him.

Updates:
  • Zeus is settling in to his foster home. He is very playful and just a big clumsy puppy. Zeus loves to take nice long walks with his foster dad, which is helping him lose a couple of pounds already.  Zeus started off mouthy but is also learning manners in his foster home. Zeus is very affectionate with his foster family and is great with the young child in the home as well. If Zeus sounds like a good fit for you, please ask to meet him.

DESCRIPTION:

Bristol was not well cared for by her previous person.  She often went without being fed, allowed to run at large putting her in danger of being hit by cars.  She has had no training and no guidance.  Regardless of her lack of her care and guidance she is a sweet, friendly young girl.  She enjoys the company of and playing with other dogs and she is good with children.  Of course she will require formal training, it not only teaches her how to be a well behaved and balanced girl, but it also helps with creating a bond with her new family.  Please be sure you have the time and patience to commit to Bristol for the rest of her life.

Updates:
  • Unfortunately Piper was returned to us after almost 5 months after showing too much interest in the resident cats. Piper is understandably confused why her family gave her up. Her foster reports that she doesn't appear to have had much training. Piper is now in a foster home where she'll wait for the right family and learn what she can learn during that time, along with playing with the resident dog. If you can commit to Piper for her lifetime, please ask to meet her.

  • Hi.  My new name is Piper – I have had a few names in my short life but this one has stuck.  I answer really well to my new name.

    As you can see I am back with the great people of MASGR.  My foster mom says I am all the best things found in a puppy and GSD.  BUT, if those are not what you are looking for, I am not the best fit for you. I am super smart, cute and loyal.  Also I am a puppy and I have a lot of energy and love to play …. all day.  Remember I am a working bread and need to have exercise and mental stimulation to keep me, and you ultimately, happy and healthy.  Please be committed to meeting my activity and mental stimulation needs.  My foster mom says I would be best with a furry brother or sister who I can play with and in an active family. I love kids! But obviously I am a pretty big dog and a puppy – so would be best with children comfortable with big dogs.  I love all people, dogs, toys and belly rubs! Overall, I am a naturally very well behaved dog. Though I do need some additional training - have started learning basic commands, but am not yet consistent. I do need additional training for walking on a lead. I am great about being house trained – but since I play a lot and drink a lot - thus need to get out to do my business. I am an amazing dog and have had a lot of change in my short life – but there are no obvious negative impacts – I have taken it all in stride.  But I deserve a wonderful forever family – one where we are both together a great fit - me for you, and you for me.  If you think you are that family – ask to meet me.  It’ll be hard for you to not fall in love…..

DESCRIPTION:

Chauncey has been let down by people 3 times in his short life, he is now looking for his forever family that will commit to him for his for lifetime.

He was first in a shelter at 4 weeks old, adopted at 8 weeks old as a cute adorable puppy only to be returned at 7 months old.  He was too much to handle and no time was spent on training.  He was then adopted again and returned as his family was moving and they were not willing to find a place that allowed dogs.  Chauncey didn't deserve to be treated this way, he is not disposable.  He is 73 lbs but could stand to lose 5 lbs or so.  Nothing that daily exercise, walks and a little less food won't help.  He enjoys the outdoors, playing, going for walks and exploring his surroundings.  Please, when considering adding a dog to your family that you are able to commit to them for their lifetime.  They should be treated as a loving family member.

Updates:
  • Chauncey is crate trained, housebroken, sits and lays down when told, and is easy to walk on a leash. Chauncey loves attention and follows his humans around the house every time they move and is always excited to see them. Chauncey loves playing with his toys, brings them back to his handler and waits for them to be thrown again. Chauncey is a very sweet boy who just wants to love and be loved. He definitely needs a fur-ever home. Ask to meet him today.

  • Hello, my name is Chauncey.  Since I've been with my humans for several weeks, I have learned their routine so I do what I'm supposed to before they tell me.  When it's time to go up to my cage, I'm going up the stairs before they know it. When it's time to go to bed I go up the steps with my humans standing guard because the house dog likes to pick on me.  I start off at one side of the bed, away from the house dog, then in the middle of the night when the house dog is asleep I sneak over and jump up on the bed and lay next to my human companion.  When it's time to go out I love walking my human companions around the block.  At meal time I run over to where I get fed and wait for them to come feed me.  I sit waiting for them to put the bowl down, drooling.  When they tell me it's okay to eat, I chomp out!  I also try to fool them and run over there like it's dinner time on the chance they'll feed me again.  I like going to the park where I can meet other people and see other dogs that I would like to play with. I like other dog buddies.  I like playing with my toys in the house. I really like my rubber bottle and bring it to my humans so they can throw it for me to retrieve. I love jumping my front paws on their lap so they give me attention, and I love all the attention they give me. I love my female human - when she comes home I wag my tail , follow her around and jump up on her with smiles, going a little crazy. I'm looking for a fur-ever home.

  • My human friend keeps taking me to a store where I get to meet adults and kids.  The adults come up and pet me, and the kids come up and pet me, and sometimes I lay down and roll over so they can rub my belly.  I really enjoy that, but it wears me out, so I sleep in the car on the way home, then I'm ready to go again. The other day we went to the park.  There was a teen age girl and a grandmother I met, and a four year old girl that wanted to pet me rather than the other dog.  She kept giving me small sticks to play with, and was having a good time.  Then she came up and gave me a big hug around the neck and I really enjoyed that!  I really like playing with kids.

DESCRIPTION:

Ozzie's former person took ill and was no longer able to care for  him.  He was brought to the VA area by a family member and is now in our care looking for his forever family.  Ozzie is a very big boy at 94 lbs  He has undergone formal training but will require further training with his new family.  He has not lived with dogs before but did well meeting another German Shepherd during our evaluation.  Ozzie does have the tendency to herd (nip at) children, for this reason we feel it is best that he not be placed in a home with young children.  A boy of this size can be intimating to small children and he could also accidentally knock them down.  For the most past Ozzie's former person exercised Ozzie on daily 2 mile walks and lots of games of fetch.  Daily exercise is key to  keep energy in check, so please be sure you have the time to commit to his exercise needs, training and of course a lifetime of love and care.

Shrek

ADOPTED 06/30/2018!

Gender: Male
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Age at adoption: 13 weeks old
Color: white
Current Size: 32 lbs
Housebroken: Unknown
Obedience Trained: No
Living With: Foster
History: Owner Surrender

Good With Kids: Yes
Good With Cats: Unknown
Other Dogs OK: Yes

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Shrek was surrendered to us as his former person had no time for him.  He was being left in a junk filled backyard.  Shrek has a partially missing ear which we were told his mother bit off.  It seems that he also has some damage to the tip of his other ear.  This in no way takes away from how adorable him, it gives him his own unique look.  He is in a foster home enjoying his time living indoors, having a large clean yard to romp around in with the resident dogs.  His foster family has started working with him on training and he is learning quickly.  It is important that his new family continues with training and keeping him socialized with other people and dogs.  This time in his life is critical for this as it provides a great foundation for him to be a well balanced adult.
