Bellair and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

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.

Update:

We've gotten to know Bellair a bit more since she's been with us.  What a pleasure this lady is to work with; it is apparent that she likes to work.  She seems to know so many commands but quietly tests out the handler as she works.  Once she figures out that you mean business, she handles beautifully.  Bellair is clearly food motivated and doesn't require much tension on the leash when a redirect is needed.  She corrects quickly and responds nicely when given an activity.  She loves balls, and will play fetch, then carry the ball around with her.  She has excellent behavior at the vet, she is even good about the thermometer.  She is easy to leash up, jumps into the car readily and is a very good car rider.  We're also told she's quite cuddly, could you see yourself cuddling with Bellair?

Living with: Foster
History: Shelter

Hamara and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Hamara cannot be any cuter and is absolutely a great little girl, happy go lucky and loves to give puppy kisses. Hamara 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, Hamara will become even more of an amazing girl than she already is. If interested and she sounds like a good match for your family, please submit an adoption application!

Update:

Hamara came to MAGSR from a local shelter after she was adopted out and returned because she had a heart murmur. MAGSR immediately sent her to a cardiologist to have an Echo-cardiogram. The echo confirmed that Hamara has a Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA), which is a common congenital birth defect in dogs and more so in females – german shepherds are also predisposed to PDAs. At this time, her heart is enlarged and is the size of an 80 lb dog. Hamara will have surgery to correct the defect on March 31st and is expected to make a full recovery and live a long and happy life. However, she will not be available for adoption for at least 3 weeks after her surgery (~April 21), as she will be on strict crate restriction during that time so she can fully recover, and then she can move on with the rest of her life. MAGSR will cover the cost of Hamara’s medical care to prepare her for adoption – the cost is very expensive, but Hamara is worth the cost. Donations towards her medical care would be greatly appreciated as this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs. If your family would like to meet Hamara as soon as she is available for adoption, please submit an adoption application and ask to meet her.


Update:

Hi there....It's me Hamara. Things at my foster home are going really well. I am learning to potty outside and how to sit when coming in and going out. My heart condition isn't as scary as it seems. MAGSR is a wonderful, generous rescue that is willing to help me become my best self. After surgery, I have a few weeks of complete crate rest and then I will be just like any other puppy. I get along well with the resident dogs and really want to play, especially fetch. But my foster mom says no for at least a few months. The resident children are great. I really love the 10 year old resident girl and frequently sit on her lap. As a final thought, thank you for the interest and any support you can help with. This is a huge undertaking but I'm lucky enough to have a rescue that cares this much about a life. We'll keep you updated. Sincerely, Hamara

Fill out an Adoption Application

Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 2 years
Color: Sable
Current Size: 68 lbs
Housebroken: Working on it
Obedience Trained: No
Living with: Foster
History: Shelter

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

Khali and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Khali was taken to the shelter as a stray, her family was found but they no longer wanted her.  Their loss, as Khali will find a family that will love and care for her for her lifetime.  She obviously has had no training, she is jumpy and can be mouthy.  She has lots of energy that needs to be channeled with exercise of both her body and mind.  Training is imperative as it will teach her impulse control, manners and help build confidence.  Be prepared for lots of exercise as you spend time burning hers.  She lived in her previous home with another dog.

Khali did arrive in our care with a visible change to her elbow which is causing her foot to turn out.  Records indicate she underwent elbow surgery in 2018.  She will be seen by our vet to check if she healed properly from the surgery.

Update:

Khali was seen by a MAGSR veterinarian who noted the left front leg paw turns out laterally, but Khali presented pain free, weight bearing, with no limping, with no mobility issues. The vet reported that Khali is happy, healthy and ready to go. Khali is very sweet and thinks she’s small enough to be a lap dog. She is so happy to see her humans, loves human contact and will happily give her humans kisses. Khali wants to be her humans’ shadow. Khali was really excited with tail wags to see kids playing, but with social distancing, she hasn’t had a chance to meet them up close and personal yet. Khali has a higher energy level, as most young dogs do, and really loves to play and loves her chew toys, and understands that the toys are the only things she can chew on. Khali needs a family who is going to burn her energy by exercising and playing with her. She doesn’t much like the resident cat, so likely would do better in a home without a cat. Khali is ready for her fur-ever home – if that home could be yours, ask to meet her!

Gender: Female
Breed: German Shepherd Dog
Approximate Age: 1 year
Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 50 lbs
Housebroken: Working on it
Obedience Trained: No
Living with: Foster
History: Shelter

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

Koa and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Beautiful Koa ended up at a shelter as a stray. Then, when no one came for her, MAGSR was contacted. Koa is a very sweet and friendly girl, and she likes everyone she meets. She loves to cuddle up in your lap, or follow you wherever you go. She enjoys the company of other dogs, always wanting to engage in play. She is young, with lots of energy and very little training, so this needs to be addressed with consistently directing her and teaching her what is expected. She will be a great a member of an active family.

Unfortunately, Koa tested heartworm positive. This could have been avoided had she been kept on monthly heartworm preventatives prior to coming to MAGSR. Koa is in the beginning stages of her heartworm treatment, which of course MAGSR will pay for her entire treatment. Treatment is expensive, but Koa is certainly worth the cost. Donations towards her treatment would be greatly appreciated, this would also help us save other dogs with medical needs. She will have to take it slow for the next few months while she undergoes treatment, so lots of rest will be in order.

Color: Black & Tan
Current Size: 107 lbs.
Ideal/Potential Size: 70 lbs
Housebroken: Yes
Obedience Trained: No
Living with: Foster
History: Owner Surrender

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

Lacy and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Lacy was surrendered to us due to a baby on the way and there would be no room for Lacy.   It is obvious she was not well cared for as she came to us obese, weighing 107 lbs. and should only weigh around 70 lbs.  She also came to us with a skin infection and some fur loss, which our vet feels is caused by lack of care and poor quality food.  She is being treated for the skin infection, put on a diet, good quality food, along with exercise that she obviously did not get in her last home.  She is settling into her foster home and dealing with the changes of her new life.  She is confused with some whining, but that is expected with the changes.  She is very sweet and friendly with everyone she has met. 
 

Update:

Lacy is doing really well in her foster home. She's working on getting exercise to drop some weight so she can be more comfortable, she's being a fed a food that should help her skin and her lose weight, and her skin is clearing up some with antibiotics from MAGSR's vet. Lacy likes to go for car rides too. On her walks, she will react a little to cars on her walks, and a squirrel here and there. Lacy does great in the house and prefers she have the house and her humans all to herself so she gets all the attention. Lacy is very sweet and is waiting to meet you.

Leona and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

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:

Leona has classic white GSD beauty, intelligence, spunk, loyalty, confidence and athleticism. Leona’s foster parents, and their friends and neighbors, have been big fans of this charming young lady since the day she came to her foster home. Given her traumatizing background, it is remarkable that Leona quickly bonds with her person and has a strong desire for human companionship. Leona has come a long way. Leona is social and friendly. On Halloween, Leona calmly greeted over 60 children and was sweet, even when the wolfman wanted to pet her. When visiting a Christmas village, she encountered many noisy children who wanted to approach her and she was just lovely. Leona receives an A+ for gentle behavior. Leona is good with dogs - she has been super friendly with all dogs she has encountered – big, happy, tail wags. If partnered with another dog, Leona wants to be #1 - she is very committed to being #1 and the center of attention - she wants all of the human’s attention and has no problem telling her person and anyone else around who will listen all about it. In social settings, Leona has been great. She calmly navigates the busy Rehoboth boardwalk like a champ. She has proven to be a confident shopper and has enjoyed many trips to hardware stores, pet stores, outdoor holiday stores, and has no issues in a pet-friendly outdoor restaurant. She even likes the vet. She receives praise and compliments often and her foster parents are thrilled that they can take her anywhere with them. Leona is not one who lacks confidence. Leona loves the car - just open any car door and she will be jump right in. Of course, the front passenger seat is where she really wants to be, but she will settle for the back as long as she is not left behind. Leona is pretty great on a leash. She can show off a nice “heel” even when on a long line. Especially when in a familiar area, she is attentive to her person and matches her pace to a casual walk, hike, jog, run, or sprint along a bicycle – thrilled to be outside. Leona is highly intelligent, an astute observer, and a fast learner - basic commands (sit, down, come, stay, etc.) are practiced daily and she is eager to earn praise (and chicken, of course). When introduced to basic agility challenges, she demonstrated natural talent and joy in the training process. Training with Leona is fun. Leona is not perfect, but who is? Would she be fine in a fenced-in yard? Well, if you mean that fences and gates are basic agility obstacles, then Leona will gladly demonstrate how joyful and easy for her to get right over them. Leona’s adopter will need to be fully committed to keeping her safe as she is still a high flight risk. Is Leona crate trained? That’s complicated. Leona can school crate engineers with her product testing skills. A standard crate is a definite NO. Confined spaces are just not her thing. She also knows how to unclip herself (at her collar/leash junction) and standard closing mechanisms (i.e. metal carabiners) pose no challenge either. Leona has not figured out how to open a padlock yet, but she has given it serious effort. Only a few things scare Leona, but she is stronger than she looks and fast, and her person needs to stay attentive. Leona respects boundaries and rules, but as any teenage girl, she is of the mindset that rules ought to be properly tested (how else would she know that her person really means them?). Leona can be headstrong, and spunk and wit are part of her charm. Consistency with her is key. Is she cool being alone at home? That has been work-in-progress. This social butterfly really wants to be with her person and did not start as a fan of the 8-hour workday. Her foster parents have gradually increased her independent time and she has done well. Leona will be best matched with a confident person with prior GSD experience, as well as experience with adult rescues and training, who would have her as a true companion and part of their active life, and a person invested in keeping her intellectually and physically challenged. In return, she will be a charming and loyal partner, ready to roll with any adventure. She has had a tough background as one of the GA 38 cohort, but she shows such incredible potential and her confidence is wonderful. She will give good days and bad days on the journey, but with patience and support, she will dedicate her life to her adoptive family. If Leona sounds like a good fit for your family, please ask to meet her.

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 would learn from and do best in a home with a confident dog to help show her the way forward. 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.
