non-MAGSR & Shelter Dogs Available for Adoption

The following listings show LOCAL available GSD or GSD mixes that are being surrendered by their owners or placed by their fosters. 

This page is NOT for the 'selling' of dogs.

If you have inquired about any dog listed on this page and been asked for an "adoption fee" of any kind, that is not clearly stated in the listing, please contact us immediately at web@magsr.org and let us know.  As a dog rescue organization, we advocate rescue adoptions only.  In Addition, and for the same reasons, we require that all dogs listed on this page be spayed/neutered as a condition of their adoption. 

These dogs are not part of the MAGSR program; we have not evaluated any of these dogs.  We list them here because they are special and deserve a second look - - and a second chance.  For more information on any of these dogs, please contact the listed party, not MAGSR. 

If you'd like to have your dog posted here, please follow the instructions at this link. Donations are appreciated!

Adopting a dog is a lifetime commitment. If you aren't prepared to work with your dog through the adjustment period and beyond, please look no further. If you wont keep your dog if you move or as your family grows, please look no further. If you aren't prepared to nurse your dog back to health if he gets ill or if she needs surgery, please look no further.

Rescue dogs have been through so much - dumped in shelters or found roaming the streets. They have been abandoned, neglected, starved and possibly physically abused. They need TIME, PATIENCE, UNDERSTANDING and LOVE in order to succeed in their new homes. Sometimes it may take several months for a rescue dog to make the adjustment to your home and family. If you aren't 100% committed to making this work with your new dog, then please don't adopt. Any adopter of a rescue dog who has been through the adjustment period can tell you its worth it. No dog is perfect….just like no human is perfect. Please don't expect too much too soon from your new dog.

DESCRIPTION:

This is Babee - a big baby is what she is; loving , playful and loves to go for walks. She loves to be rubbed under her neck. When i took Babee to my home she was 8 weeks old. I lived in a big house on a farm she had lots of room to run around. I had to move into a smaller place where I am not able to keep her. I am looking for a loving, caring people or person to take care of Babee.

Bison
DESCRIPTION:

The Good:
Bison is a really affectionate, loving, intelligent dog. He has been through a board & train program and knows all the basic commands (sit, down, come, heel, place, touch. paw, and stand). He is a very loyal and loving companion who seeks to please those he knows. In our house we have 2 young children and a cat and he is very patient and calm with them all. The cat will frequently claw at his nose, and he just takes it without complaint. The children climb all over him and he loves their attention. We have had him for 2 years (since he was 9/10 weeks old) and he has always been very friendly and kind to us.

 

Reason for Rehoming:
Bison needs a lot of work. My wife and I are expecting our 3rd child soon, and I currently work 2 full time jobs. We no longer have the time or the environment he needs to overcome, what the vet has said is essentially, PTSD. Her diagnosis was that he needs a lot of positive reinforcement training, and possibly gradual socialization. We would be incredibly sad to see our beloved family member leave our home, but we are no longer able to provide him with the attention that he needs.

Thanks for your consideration

DESCRIPTION:

Daisy is a gorgeous German Shepherd/Retriever mix who, unfortunately, has to be re-homed. She is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, and has been professionally trained. Daisy is great with children but prefers older ones. However, she does not get along with other dogs so she needs to be the only pet in the home. She also needs to have a fenced yard as she loves to be outside. Daisy loves to be with her people and thinks she is a lap dog. Daisy would make a wonderful, loving companion for the right person.

DESCRIPTION:

Will you write the next page in the story of my life?

I'm 2 years young and I am a great dog for an experienced dog owner.

I am what humans call dominant. I'm NOT aggressive, but I think I'm the boss until you put me in my place and show me who the real alpha is. I have worked with a behaviorist and she showed my foster mom how to be more assertive and since then I've been a really good boy. I am very smart! I know sit, paw, and down. We are working on high five! I love my 2 Boxer foster sisters and have been good with other dogs I've met. I am being fed separately right now because I do like to try to eat the other dogs food and I get a little grumpy if they don't want to share! My foster mom is working on helping me learn that this is not a good behavior. Sometimes I try to guard my toys too, but each day I realize more and more that I don't have too. I would do best in a home with either a good fence I can't escape from, or extra land where I'll have freedom to explore some without getting hurt. I am just so curious and sometimes it gets me in trouble! I don't like being alone and I absolutely do not like the crate, so please consider that if you think you may want to adopt me. Did I mention I LOVE KIDS!! I will give chase with cats, but have not hurt one. I really want them to play with me. I would do best in a home with family who will play with me, work my brain, and make sure I get plenty of exercise. I think I'm a lap dog and will curl up with my people any chance I can! I have made such progress since being saved...I just need a home where my family will understand I haven't had the best life up to now, but I promise if you give me a chance I'll love you forever and show you what a great boy I can be. In case you are wondering I am neutered and up to date on my shots, so I'm ready for my forever home today!!

Zoe
Zoe
DESCRIPTION:

Zoe isn’t a bad girl, but she’s in a situation right now that is not bringing out the best in her.  She is a Shepherd mix, maybe Dutch Shepherd in the mix.

She needs to be in a home without other dogs and ONLY with adults who are very experienced working with dominant /anxiety defensive dogs, such as dog trainers or K9 officers.   NO FIRST TIME DOG OWNERS, please.

We adopted Zoe from our local shelter when she was about 6 months old, and she had been a stray.  She has lived with our other three older dogs but no cats. She loves teenaged kids, and also loves to chase squirrels and deer, but is trained to an electronic fence.

Because of her tough beginnings, she has always had fears/anxieties and defensive behavior related to food and attention.  One of our GSDs went blind this past year from SARD, and is also mostly deaf, and this has created a big issue for Zoe, who doesn’t understand that she’s not being ignored or challenged by this dog.   Zoe now feels she has to dominate the other dogs and even the humans in our house, and despite our best efforts with different dog trainers and a behavioral vet, the best solution is to rehome her where she will not feel this anxiety and fear.

Zoe is healthy, has had a recent exam with normal blood work, is up to date on all vaccinations, receives flea/tick/heartworm meds regularly, is housetrained, walks well on leash, and knows all her obedience commands.  She is very smart and learns quickly.  She is not high energy, and is happy to lie around the house, but loves to go for walks and car rides.  She’s a great girl, but needs a better situation to be happy and have a better life.

Thanks for considering Zoe!

Please contact Hal Horenberg, Home at Last Sanctuary, 301-983-0614, if you would like to start an adoption application.
