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 encounter a person or a car going by but gets scared with 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. Cayden would learn from and do best in a home with a confident dog to help show him the way forward. 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.

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.

DESCRIPTION:

Jasper was dumped by his former owner on a country road and picked up by animal control.  When our volunteer picked him up from the shelter it was obvious he was not feeling well and not in great shape.  He immediately went into medical boarding at one of our vets offices, where he received the best care.  He had a severe respiratory and ear infection, hair loss with a skin infection and was not eating.  All needed tests were performed and treatment was started.  As time went on he was still not wanting to eat, radiographs were taken and it was found he had foreign objects in him.  He was immediately taken to surgery where a number of assorted items were removed from his stomach.

After spending 3 weeks in medical boarding Jasper was able to go home with his foster.  He is now on the mend, starting to eat on his own and finally wagging his tail some.  He still needs to put on some more weight but his foster will be sure he never misses a much needed meal.

Through all of this he has been nothing but sweet and friendly.  Jasper is now looking for his forever family, one that will treat him with care and love him for his lifetime.  He is ready to leave his past behind and looks forward to a future of living in a home, proper nutrition, walks, playtime and lots of cuddles from his humans.

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:

Big, handsome Mack is a strong boy.  He needs to learn leash manners, as a dog of his size can be difficult to handle on a leash.  Mack is such a sweet boy.  He has been very friendly with our volunteers.  He really seems to enjoy going for drives, as when he sees a vehicle door open he wants to jump in.  Mack did spend part of his life tied up on a chain, so he probably needs to learn house manners.  While at the shelter he did participate in play groups with other dogs.

Regis was surrendered to a shelter as his family moved and could not take him with them.  He is new to us so we are still getting to know him.  He does best with female dogs and prefers them over male dogs.  He loves belly rubs, rolling over on his back for a good scratching.  Regis will benefit greatly from obedience training, learning good manners and what is expected of him.

Embedded thumbnail for Riptide-MAGSR-2019, Embedded thumbnail for Riptide-MAGSR-2019
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!

DESCRIPTION:

Tank was taken to the vet to be euthanized because he helped himself to some livestock.  Thankfully the vet would not kill such a young and friendly boy, instead she contacted us.  Tank is good with other dogs, but will not do well with livestock, chickens or goats especially.  Of course he requires training to teach good K9 manners and to learn to work with his new family.  Time is needed by his family to help him settle in, learn the rules and to adjust to a new schedule.  Tank has had his stomach tacked, this greatly reduces his chances of bloat.  He will require daily exercise, walks, lots of love and attention for the rest of his life.  He rides well in the vehicle, he enjoys looking out the window and getting a few head rubs.  Please be certain you have what it takes for an energetic GSD and are committed for his lifetime.

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.
