Elke and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
This happy girl came to us as a stray. She is a sweet dainty girly girl that found herself with animal control and no one came for her. Although she can be shy with new people, Elke is a people pleaser and loves to socialize once comfortable. Typical of a young shepherd, Elke has some puppy energy and is a joy to be around. She loves squeaky toys and playing ball outside. She will get a bit mouthy when excited, but she will stop when corrected. At this time, Elke is in a loving foster home learning about house breaking, crate training, and general household manners. If Elke sounds like a good match for your family, please ask to meet her today.
Maggie and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Maggie was picked up by animal control and brought to a local shelter. Upon her arrival, it was very clear to the shelter staff that Maggie is a victim of cruelty and neglect. Maggie was extremely emaciated. Her body was covered in scabs, sores, and wounds. She was weak from lack of food and needed encouragement to get up and move. Although the shelter searched for her abusers, no one was identified. Recognizing that Maggie needed help, the shelter worked to find a safe place for Maggie to rest and recuperate.
Fortunately, Maggie has found safety in the MAGSR family. Despite all that Maggie has endured, she is a loving and affectionate dog. Once given the opportunity to warm up to new people, Maggie is all about leaning in for head rubs and giving little kisses. As Maggie has begun eating more regularly and is receiving the medical care she needs, her foster family is beginning to see her personality shine. True to the breed, Maggie is loyal and wants to be with her people. This also gives her the chance to get a few extra head rubs throughout the day. Maggie has clearly lived in a house prior to her arrival at MAGSR. She is housebroken and has some general household manners. At this time, it doesn't appear that Maggie knows any commands. As she is still recovering, her foster family has decided to slowly introduce Maggie to the children and animals in the home. However, Maggie seems to thrive in a calm environment.
All Maggie needs now is a loving forever home that will love and protect her through her gold years. If Maggie sounds like a good match for your household, please ask to meet her today.

Maggie has had an eventful week at MAGSR. As regular grooming and bathing has been key to her recovery, Maggie has had daily brushing sessions over the last week to help remove the extra fur and mats found all over her body. As is evident from the picture, these sessions tend to produce piles of fur. Although Maggie wasn't so sure about these brushing sessions at first, she has begun to sit down or lay down throughout each session. This has been a slow and steady process; however, it seems that Maggie now understands that the brush brings comfort and relief. In addition to brushing sessions, Maggie is also getting bathed every two to three days with a medicated shampoo. Although she still isn't thrilled about the water, Maggie relaxes while being massaged with the shampoo and absolutely loves having her head dried with the towel. After bathing and grooming sessions, Maggie tends to find a comfortable spot and sleeps. Spa sessions sure are tiring.
This week Maggie has started eating more regularly; this has dramatically increased her energy. Although she still waits for a special Stella and Chews dinner pattie before eating her food, Maggie is more enthusiastic about meal times. Perhaps she has learned to be a little spoiled. Who could resist spoiling such a sweet soul? With increased energy has come a desire for greater attention, a curiosity to explore new places in the house, and a greater interest in walks. Maggie loves being outside and would happily spend hours hanging with her people sniffing the flowers and lounging in the grass.
As Maggie still has a long road to recovery, please consider donating toward her care. MAGSR remains committed to providing Maggie with the care and comfort she deserves, but we could use your support along the road. Continue to look for updates on Maggie's journey as she makes her way toward a forever home.
Mazie and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:
Mazie and Sadie were well-loved members of their family. Unfortunately, due to circumstances outside of their control, the girls' family needed to find them a new home. MAGSR was honored to step-up and provide Mazie and Sadie with a safe haven while we looked for the perfect forever for these girls.
Mazie is a special girl. Her family welcomed her home after a breeder considered putting her down after being born with a congenital defect. Although Mazie required a little extra time and support, she was welcomed home to a family that taught her how to walk, play, and interact just like any other dog. Mazie is a little confused by all of the changes in her life. As a result, she needs a little extra time to warm up to new people. However, when provided with leadership and guidance, Mazie warms up to new people and leans in for affection.
If Mazie sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet her today.
Winnie and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support: --- Please give to help Winnie
Sweet Winnie was picked up as a stray by animal control and brought to a shelter where she waited for someone to claim her. When no one came, an animal control officer contacted MAGSR to see if we could help this lovely lady find a home that would provide her with the love, attention, and safety that she so clearly deserves.
Winnie is a beautiful girl who could use a little extra care. Underweight and clearly used for breeding, it is evident that Winnie has endured some hardship. However, she is ready to move forward with a family who will love her and provide her with the guidance and leadership that all shepherds crave. Winnie will do best with a household that will go slow and allow her to build confidence. As is true of all dogs, Winnie will also benefit from training as it will help her bond with her new family, as well as, become a good canine citizen. If this sweet girl sounds like a good match for your household, please ask to meet her today.
