Briscoe and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet Briscoe was trapped on the streets of a busy city along with his little family. When he first arrived at the shelter, he was quiet and shut down. There was simply so much going on around him and so many new people and sounds. Staff members did notice that although Briscoe was unsure he was beyond sweet. Once given a little time to adjust, Briscoe's calm and collected personality quickly emerged. Although Briscoe's puppies quickly found homes, he was left behind waiting for his turn to find a forever home. Recognizing that Briscoe deserved a loving home of his very own, we welcomed this boy into the MAGSR family. 

Both stable and affectionate, Briscoe's sweet eyes win everyone over. He has done well with people and children. It is hard not to fall for this guy. We have learned that Briscoe is heartworm positive. This condition could have been avoided had he been provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. MAGSR has begun his heartworm treatment and Briscoe is doing well. The cost of his entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Briscoe is clearly worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Briscoe's treatment. Your generosity will help us save him and other dogs with medical needs. Although Briscoe will need to take it slow over the next few months, he will be back to full strength once his treatment is finished. If your household is looking for a stable, loving guy, please ask to meet Briscoe today.

Camelot and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Camelot had a rough start in life. He was purchased to be a guard dog and kept outside. Living his life on a chain, Camelot would escape from time to time. His punishment was days in a crate outside with little to no food or water. Fortunately, a kind person recognized that Camelot needed help and fast. They stepped forward to get this sweet guy to safety. Although his rescuers did everything they could to give Camelot a fresh start, these good samaritans recognized that Camelot would have his best chance at finding the perfect forever home if he were placed with a rescue. When asked if we could help Camelot move forward, we were happy to welcome him into the MAGSR family. 

Camelot is a big, beautiful boy. Although he has suffered in his past, he is ready to move forward with a loving family who will always provide him with a safe home. A social guy, Camelot enjoys the company of people and other dogs. As is true of all young dogs, Camelot has good energy and would love a family to help him exercise both his body and his mind on a daily basis. Camelot loves to play ball and hopes his new family does too. He will keep you entertained with his antics. True of all shepherds, Camelot will thrive with structure, routine, and leadership. Training will be key to his success. Not only will training help Camelot bond to his new family, but it will also help him develop into a good canine citizen. 

We have learned that Camelot is heartworm positive. This condition could have been avoided had he been provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. MAGSR has begun his heartworm treatment and Camelot is doing well. The cost of his entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Camelot is more than worth the cost. Please consider donating  toward Camelot's treatment. Your generosity will help us save him and other dogs with medical needs. Although Camelot will need to take it slow over the next few months, he will be back to full strength once his treatment is finished. If Camelot sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet him today.

Chip Gearings and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Sally and her Cars Puppies were rescued in the south by another group. As they wanted to do right by this lovely family, they began reaching out to other groups who would be able to support the family until they were ready to find forever homes of their own. When asked to welcome this family into the MAGSR family, we immediately said yes. 

Chip Gearings is a bundle of energy and joy. He is cute as a button and brings happiness to everyone around him. Well socialized in his foster home, Chip Gearings is a match for a household with kids, cats, or other dogs. Although Chip Gearings' foster family has given him an excellent start, it is imperative that his new family continues to keep Chip Gearings well socialized. This will help him develop into a stable adult. Although Chip Gearings is absolutely adorable, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics, they get into things, and they will chew on inappropriate items. With time, patience, and training, Chip Gearings will develop into the good canine citizen that we know he is destined to become. If this little guy sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet him today.

Courage and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Sometimes we all need a Christmas miracle and for Courage that miracle couldn't come soon enough. Courage was found near a vacant building with significant wounds to his paws and legs. Based upon his injuries, Courage was likely hit by or tossed from a car. In need of immediate care, he was quickly brought to a shelter for help. Shelter staff did everything they could to help Courage, but they recognized that he needed additional help from a private vet and fast. When a plea went out for help, MAGSR stepped in to grant Courage's Christmas wish.

Courage is in a significant amount of pain. However, he remains gentle and friendly. At this time, Courage is unable to bear full weight on one of his back legs and has several deep wounds on his legs and feet. These wounds look infected and are significantly impacting his ability to move easily. Fortunately, MAGSR has a phenomenal vet working with Courage already. He is getting x-rays completed, wound care, antibiotics, and pain medication. Over the next few days we will have a better idea of the full extent of Courage's medical needs. However, no matter what the prognosis MAGSR will be by his side every step of the way. Although Courage will receive all of the love and care he needs to recover, MAGSR needs help making his Christmas wish come true. Please consider donating to his care so that MAGSR can continue to help dogs like Courage this holiday season. 

Courage's wounds are healing nicely and he can even walk up and down the stairs in his foster home to sleep with his foster family in their bedroom. In his foster care he has experienced other dogs and is a NO for cats. He would prefer another dog or GSD that is playful in his forever home but he could be an only dog. He has a sweet, playful personality and loves to roll on his back for belly rubs. He likes a Kong ball but is currently restricted to having it in his crate due to being heartworm positive. He loves to be 'outside' and he is an expert sniffer like most shepherds and then some!  Even though his outside time is restricted, it is evident that he will need to improve his leash walking skills. He does recognize some basic commands but will need to attend a training class and then practice his newly learned skills. Courage seems to be familiar with noises, activities and rules of living in a house. He has not had any accidents in the house and sleeps fairly quiet at night except for changing his sleep position. He loves to be with his people and would love to be your lap or couch dog if allowed. Courage is a handsome boy with a great personality and should fit in with most families with older children.   

Update:

Courage is making progress in his foster home and has come a long way since he joined his foster family. He is calm and relaxed in the house most of the day except at meal times when he gets very excited and will talk up a storm but will be calmer when kept close by on the leash. He is quiet in his crate at night and while on crate rest due to his heartworm treatment or when the fosters leave the house. He is also very calm and happy looking out the storm doors to observe dogs, people and other activities.

When he first arrived at his foster home he started mouthing when being leashed up, getting belly or head rubs and also exercising his leg during rehab. He is starting to understand that this behavior is not acceptable and has been much better not mouthing. His mouthing doesn't seem aggressive at all but more of a reaction of being handled by someone and him protesting as he most likely never had any training and got away with this kind of behavior. He is now much better and not mouthing when getting leashed, routine exercises and handling.

He is a Thief extraordinaire and he will grab anything available and will snatch a napkin or paper towel right out of your hand or off the counter. And he is an expert counter surfer; nothing is safe within reach if you leave him unattended for just a moment and that's about 5 seconds. He needs to be in the crate at any time you leave the room just to step outside and his antics make us laugh at how creative he can be snatching up the desired object but which he will quickly drop or ignore when given proper motivation. 

He picks up random tennis balls left behind by other dogs when outside and he would probably love to run and retrieve them. He seems to remember to run free and play with a ball as he stares at the dogs in the neighborhood chasing the ball. There is a fun personality waiting to come out once he is allowed to engage in normal day to day activities again. And he has those sunshine brown eyes that are most expressive looking at you and are hard to resist. 

Courage will be a great dog for the right family and he is ready for his furever family. He has almost recovered from his knee surgery and he is now going through his heartworm treatment with optimism towards his full recovery. He is used to his limited, short outings to do his business and he would rather chase squirrels and visit with the other dogs. Courage is looking forward to playing at full speed over time once all of his treatments are completed. He is keeping busy chewing on nyla bones and an occasional other chew. He is currently on house and crate rest and he is on limited training in the house to keep his mind engaged. He knows NO, SIT, COME, and we are working on DOWN, STAY and PLACE. Stay and place are something he will have to work on with his new family but he is very food and treat motivated so this will be helpful training him once he can fully engage in activities.. As all shepherds, this gorgeous, fun loving lad will need structure, patience and training with his new family and please ask to meet this handsome young boy... and yes, he is a BOY!

Elvis & Priscilla and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Elvis and Priscilla were abandoned by their family. Fortunately, when a good Samaritan found them, they moved quickly to get this special pair help. Elvis and Priscilla were brought to a local shelter where staff immediately began addressing their needs. Underweight, under-socialized, and lacking vetting care, shelter staff recognized that Elvis and Priscilla would need some extra support to move forward. When contacted to see if we could help this pair find their forever home together, MAGSR was happy to step up. 

It is highly evident that Elvis and Priscilla have not always been treated kindly by people. They will need time to warm up to new people and situations. As is true of all shepherds, Elvis and Priscilla will thrive in a home that will provide them with structure, leadership, and patience. Fortunately, this special pair are living in an amazing foster home where they are learning that humans can be kind and gentle. This is also giving them the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of living in a household as we do not know if this is a new experience for this pair. As Elvis and Priscilla have begun to get the vetting care needed to move forward, we have learned that Elvis is heartworm positive. His entire treatment will be handled by MAGSR. Although this will mean that Elvis will need to take it slow for a little while, once his treatment is completed he will be back to full strength. As they have a special bond, Elvis and Priscilla are looking for a home with room for two. If your household sounds like the right match for this sweet pair, please ask to meet them today. 

Update:

Both Elvis and Priscilla are very much young and very playful.  They do have basic command training (sit, stay, down, no, come).  They also do their personal business as soon as you let them outside - then they like to sniff around a bit.  They eat right away and  do not try to eat each other's food.  They take snacks gently, Elvis waits his turn but Priscilla wants to have her nose in everything so she has to be put in a stay and reminded that it isn't her turn yet.  She is learning, but it will take some time.  They are a work in progress on the Leash - not sure they were ever on one before.  We have been working on this but it is still an experience.  At night, they sleep in my room on the floor next to the bed.  When I'm outside (in the front yard) they are free in the house and there have been no issues.  When I picked the dogs up I was told that Priscilla would do her business in the space she slept in - since being here she has had no accidents.  They let me know if they need to go out - we are working on a schedule.

They both show signs of being treated very harshly.  If you raise your voice Elvis slinks away, Priscilla, cowers and acts as though she is going to be hit.  We are working to change these behaviors but that will take time and earned trust.  They both cower when there is a loud bang/crash and if the person has a tool in their hand.  Priscilla, although scared, is still so young that her curiosity wins out and you can show her the item and she will sniff the object from all sides and be okay.  Elvis will be okay once Priscilla has accepted it.   When Priscilla gets really scared she hides behind or under Elvis.  They are truly bonded and depend on each other for the other's strengths to their own weaknesses. 

Priscilla is a real talker - never seen anything like it.  She will stop if you ask her to - sometimes it does take more then once, especially if she is sassing you.

I'm currently working from home and most of the day they both spend sleeping at my feet or within sight.  They love to be on camera during conference calls - but quickly return to sleeping.  They just want to please you and get rubs and hugs and an occasional snack is good.  They haven't shown any interest in toys or balls I would think that would change with time.  Elvis and Priscilla are both beautiful and loving dogs that just want love and attention, they are waiting patiently to find a home together where they can be the apples of their owners' eye, could that be you?!


Update:

Elvis and Priscilla are a young set of shepherds who had a really rough start.  They are doing well and making strides every day in foster care.  They are both altered, up to date on their shots, housebroken and crate trained.  Elvis has completed his heartworm treatments. With slow and careful introductions they are getting along with well with the fur siblings in our home.  They both are very smart and willing to learn!  Elvis knows how to sit, and both will respond to their names.  Leash walking is an adventure for all, and they need work in this area.  They love romping in the backyard!  Elvis is a very go with the flow kind of guy.  He is very shy at first, but with some gentle words, high value treats and loving pets he comes around and craves head rubs, pats and hugs.  Priscilla continues to be very nervous.  She needs lots of time to learn to trust and want human interaction.  When she opens up, it is on!  She wants to be a lap dog, be snuggled and will give kisses.  Priscilla is more scared of men then women.  She is not aggressive when scared and does go to her 'house' (crate) when very nervous as she has learned it is a safe place. She looks after Elvis and will often check in with him.  Priscilla will need a loving home that will give her time to continue to learn to trust, while not letting her rule the roost.  She needs to gain confidence with her new pack leaders.  Elvis and Priscilla are continuing to build confidence and social skills of living in a household with other dogs.  These two would do best in a home with older children who are dog saavy, and can continue to build trust.  Their favorite thing to do is nap together under our feet when we are working from home or watching TV in the evenings.  If you are looking for a wonderful pair of dogs these may be the ones for you!

Harry & Diana and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Harry and his housemates, Megan and Diana, were confiscated from their owner.  Although all three dogs get along with one another, it appears that Harry and Diana are closer to one another. They have relied on one another for comfort and safety and clearly enjoy the companionship of another dog. When confiscated, it was clear to animal control officers that these three were not well cared for or socialized around other people. As a result, they all require some time to adjust to new people and situations.

When provided with patience, confidence, and leadership, Harry's interactive and affectionate personality begins to shine. It is simply amazing how a dog that has gone through so much is willing to give people another chance to earn his trust.  In the same circumstances, Diana becomes more interactive and begins to trust her handlers. She does best when given the opportunity to warm up slowly to new people. Having survived a difficult situation, we have been impressed with her continued attempts to trust people. With the right family, Harry and Diana will excel. As is true of all dogs, Harry and Diana will benefit from training. 

We are confident that with the right family, Harry & Diana will excel. Both of them, like all dogs, will benefit from training. This will not only help him bond to their new family, but it will also help them develop into good canine citizens. If your household sounds like the right match for this incredible pair, please ask to meet them today.

 

Update:

After arriving in MAGSR's care, it became quite apparent to our volunteers that Harry and Diana would be best placed in a home together. These two beautiful pups have survived a life of neglect. However, they seem to find comfort and safety when together. Each of them contributes to their relationship and helps the other learn to adjust to new people and situations. Although it takes some time and patience to gain their trust, Harry and Diana are definitely food motivated. High-value treats are always welcome and seem to help when building trust. Once comfortable, Harry and Diana enjoy affection and definitely have the "shepherd lean" down pat. If your family has room for two, please consider opening your home to this special pair. 


Update:

Harry and Diana are housebroken, crate trained, they don't get on furniture or beg for food.  They enjoy their daily walks but can't wait to get back home.  As they have become more comfortable in their foster home they are building more confidence and have started to play.  Harry's safe place is in his crate and that is where he likes to go to sleep at night but in the morning his fosters find him sleeping on the rug next to Diana.    They share their dinner and breakfast by going from one bowl to the other.  Diana likes all the attention, if Harry is getting some lovin, she will come over and try to bump him out of the way.  These two are very laid back, if you are looking for a loving bonded pair of dogs contact us.  We would love to have you meet them.

Kaito and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Kaito's family loved him dearly. However, due to a sudden change in circumstances, they were no longer able to care for him. As Kaito's family wanted him to find a safe and loving forever home, they surrendered him to a rescue. 

Kaito is a big, interactive, and energetic guy. Having previously lived in a busy household with small dogs and older kids, Kaito enjoys the company of others. However, he is a big guy so he would be best suited for older children. Kaito is social and enjoys the company of other people; however, he needs time to adjust to new people. He is responsive to calm and confident handlers. Kaito's family clearly did a nice job giving him opportunities to socialize with other dogs and meet with success in new situations. Kaito, just like all GSDs, will thrive when provided with structure, leadership, and routine. Food and toy motivated, Kaito loves to learn new skills and will be a star in training class. Starting training with Kaito will help him not only bond with his new family, but it will also help him develop into the good canine citizen we know he is destined to be. Kaito is looking for a forever family that will provide him with a safe and loving forever home as well as a lot of belly rubs. Could that be with you?

Update:

Kaito is thriving in his foster home!  He has proven to be a happy go lucky boy who loves the company of other dogs and humans.  He finds solace in his crate and will go in there just to relax with the door left open. He sleeps through the night quietly in his crate and waits patiently in the morning to be let outside to potty.  He takes treats gently and has not shown any food or toy aggression.  At first Kaito did not know how to do the steps in the house but is such a smart boy that in a 24 hours period had them mastered with some coaxing with cheese. He loves to run around the yard with the other dogs and is learning how to play fetch.  He loves things that squeak and is especially fond of his pink ball and orange chicken.  In the house he will play with his stuffed toys by tossing them in the air and trying to catch them or dropping them in your lap for you to throw.  Speaking of lap he thinks he is a lap dog and will try to squeeze into whatever space you give him.  From time to time he may require a stern no if he gets overly excited and starts mouthing which has improved greatly in his time in a foster home.  He loves to be pet and while doing so he will slowly slink down your leg and onto his back for belly rubs.  He engages politely with the other 2 resident dogs and is learning how to play with them.  Kaito is welcoming to people who come in the house but from a distance will bark to let them know he is there protecting the house.  Since Kaito is a big boy and strong he will need someone who can handle him.  Kaito wants nothing more than to find a family to share his joy and love with. Ask to meet Kaito today!

MIlo and another puppy were dumped on the side of the road in the south. Skinny, scared, and clearly not well cared for, Milo and his buddy needed help and fast. Fortunately, these babies were noticed by a passerby and brought to safety. Although he has been through a lot in his short life, Milo remains sweet and social. 

Milo is a sweet and interactive boy. He is enjoying the comforts of good food, a soft bed, and a loving family. Recognizing that Milo would need opportunities to socialize with people and other animals, his foster family has been working hard to start this vital process. Socializing with dogs, kids, cats, and people, Milo is quickly learning that people are kind. As socialization is critical for puppies, Milo's forever family will need to continue this practice as it will help him develop into a stable adult dog. Although Milo is a love, please remember that puppies are a lot of work and require a lot of attention from their family. Puppies are full of puppy antics, they will whine, they get into things, and they will chew on inappropriate items. With time, patience, guidance, and training, Milo will develop into the good canine citizen that we know he is destined to be. If this little boy sounds like the right match for your family, ask to meet him today!

Murphy and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Murphy was found hanging out at a high school with his buddy Millie. Both dogs were brought to a shelter where they waited for a family to claim them. When no one came forward, the shelter staff started pleading for rescue support as they were at capacity. Who could say no to such sweet dogs?

Murphy is a playful and energetic guy. He is friendly and good with both people and other dogs. However, he can be vocal with new dogs when first meeting them. As a young guy, Murphy has energy to burn and will do best in a home that can exercise his mind and his body on a daily basis. Arriving as a stray, we do not know what Murphy knows about living in a household. However, he seems to be a quick learner who wants to please his handler. As is true of all dogs, Murphy will thrive when provided with guidance, leadership, and consistency. Training will help him adjust to his new family as well as develop the skills needed to become a good canine citizen. Murphy is looking for a forever family that will love and care for him for a lifetime. Could that be with you?

DESCRIPTION:

Sally and her Cars Puppies were rescued in the south by another group. As they wanted to do right by this lovely family, they began reaching out to other groups who would be able to support the family until they were ready to find forever homes of their own. When asked to welcome this family into the MAGSR family, we immediately said yes.

Well socialized in his foster home, Murray Clutchburn is a match for a household with kids, cats, or other dogs.

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Orion and his siblings - Annisa and Kiernan - arrived in MAGSR's care after being transferred from another rescue. They have clearly been well cared for and are waiting patiently for their forever homes.

Recognizing that toys provide endless fun, Orion happily moves from one toy the next for entertainment.

Russia and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Sweet and sophisticated Russia was picked up by animal control in the south. Although Russia had been adopted out years earlier, it was highly evident that he had not been well cared for over the last few years. Thin, infested with fleas, and lacking basic care, this gentleman was in need of help and fast. Fortunately, the shelter began addressing his needs while they waited out his stray hold and began looking for rescue support. When no one came to claim Russia, MAGSR stepped in.

Although Russia had clearly been neglected this handsome gentleman is a loving and gentle soul. His easy-going mannerisms and affectionate attitude make him the ideal dog for many households. Russia already knows a few commands such as sit and paw. He loves to greet everyone and has no problem being the center of attention. Although Russia did have a family at one point, we do not yet know if he is housebroken or crate trained. We do know he rides in the car beautifully and is a gentleman on leash. As Russia's needs were clearly neglected, he is now getting the vetting he needs to move forward. Unfortunately, Russia did test heartworm positive. This diagnosis would have been avoided had he been provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. Russia has already begun his heartworm treatment and is doing well. The cost of his entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive, but Russia is beyond worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Russia's treatment and care. Your generosity will help us save him and other dogs with medical needs. Although Russia will need some time to heal over the next few months, this sweet guy will be back to full strength when his treatments are completed. If your household is looking for a handsome and sophisticated gentleman, please ask to meet Russia today. 

Update:

Russia has been in a foster home almost a week and he is settling in and I get to see more of his sweet personality each day. First thing anyone should know about him is that he loves nothing more than human love and attention.  He is a resilient boy, considering that humans in his past treated him poorly.   He just wants to be a velcro dog for someone. Even though he arrived underweight and loving food, from day 1 he would leave his food bowl to find me if I left the room. He compensates for my absence by bringing mouthfuls of food to me so he can eat in the same room. 
He is still skittish and cowers with fast movement or loud noise which is remnants of his past experiences that we are making progress with. Russia was placed on short term steroid and it a helping him be more comfortable/less itchy and requires more frequent trips outside for potty breaks. He has obviously been suffering for a long time and is missing fur. He is heartworm positive and MAGSR is paying for his treatment.   His first week here was filled with vet visits, x-rays, a bath (quite possibly his first in a looong time), and blood draws.  Through it all he has loved up on the vet and vet techs and they think he is the best dog ever.  That’s huge progress for a dog scared into cowering on the floor or running away when the TV turns on. It is clear he has had very little experience with indoor life but just as we mentioned before he is resilient and adapting to the wonderful life as a beloved family member. His soulful eyes just tug at your heart, Russia is patiently waiting for that special someone to shower him with all the love and attention he deserves. 


Update:

Don't let his age fool you, this pup has a lot more energy than first thought. As his health improves, so does his activity level. He bounces like a puppy when happy, throws and chases his stuffy, and jogs around the house when the mood strikes. He also has a touch of mischief hiding in him. I think he would make someone a great walking partner -- even speedwalker partner. We can't officially check that yet since he is still dealing with heartworms and has activity limitations but he shows every sign of being an energetic dog.

 

His fur is doing much better and although he will never get back some of his coat, he is furry again overall. He is also gaining confidence and doesn't run away all the way now. He barks at "intruders" and runs behind me to only come out and repeat the cycle. He is much more tolerant of hands moving around and rarely cowers now.  

 

He is also 90% house trained which is a vast improvement. He still piddels if very scared and he has had an accident when I broke routine and didn't head straight for the door first thing in the morning. I think he knows that he needs to go outside for the bathroom but doesn't yet understand that this means he isn't supposed to go inside, if that makes any sense. He sleeps nicely in the crate by my bed all night. If put in the crate during the day he whines and barks but doesn't chew or paw at the crate. 

Oh, and he sings! watch the video

Smokey and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Handsome Smokey was surrendered to a shelter as his family felt they could not handle him properly. Recognizing that Smokey would have his best chance if placed through a rescue, the shelter reached out to MAGSR for support. We were happy to help this sweet guy out. As a goofy, young, and energetic guy, Smokey is looking for a family that will exercise his body and his mind on a regular basis. Young dogs need opportunities to learn and grow. When provided with structure, routine, and leadership, Smokey will rise to the challenge. At this time, Smokey is still learning his manners. It is clear that he has not been given boundaries prior to his arrival. Our volunteers will be working with Smokey to develop his manners. Smokey would meet with greatest success in an experienced household that can help him move forward. If this handsome guy sounds like the right match for your household, please ask to meet this boy today. 

Update:

Smokey, the three legged wonder dog, is settling in wonderfully to his foster home. He is very affectionate, loving to cuddle and play with his people.  A very handsome boy, his coat is silky soft and beautiful.  He has a young playful temperament and is learning how to play with toys.  He is very friendly with people, although he can be rather mouthy which we are working on.  Because of this, he probably isn't a good fit for a home with young children.  He is good with other medium to large dogs but does need some support learning doggy manners.  He is making great progress learning basic commands and how to walk nicely on leash.  He's getting plenty of exercise and is getting stronger every day.  He needs to get routine walks to help him build up his back leg strength.   He is a typical teenager and needs structure and leadership from his people to be his best self.  Reach out if you are looking for a young playful cuddle bug for your home!

Theo and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

 

Theo was a stray who found his way to a shelter where it was very clear that he needed immediate medical attention. A portion of Theo's tail had been degloved and he required significant medical support. Recognizing that Theo's condition would require surgical intervention, the shelter staff worked with local groups to get Theo the help he needed. In order to help Theo survive, a portion of his tail was amputated. With his medical needs addressed, Theo is ready to move forward and begin his journey with a new family. Theo is a big, ball-driven boy. He is good with other dogs but prefers proper introductions. We appreciate that he thinks the use of manners is best when saying hi to new dogs and people. As is true of all shepherds, Theo will meet with success in a household where he has structure and leadership. Training will also go a long way with this handsome guy. Although we are still getting to know Theo, we will provide updates soon. If Theo sounds like a good match for your household, ask to meet him today.

Zane and MAGSR thank these Sponsors for their generous support:

DESCRIPTION:

Zane was surrendered by his family as an elderly member of the family became ill and required daily support in the home, Zane struggled with the constant in and out of strangers in his home. Recognizing that this change in situation is likely a long term, his family made the decision to surrender him to MAGSR. 

Zane is an intelligent and energetic guy. He has lived previously with older children and dogs his size or larger. Having previously lived in a household, Zane knows many of the basic household rules already. Crate trained, housebroken, and knows several commands, Zane is a smart and driven guy. Although he enjoys moving sneakers about the house, Zane doesn't destroy items in the household but does enjoy rearranging them.  As is true of most shepherds, Zane can be protective of his household and needs time and proper introductions to strangers when they are in his household.

When Zane entered the rescue, it was very evident that he was handshy due to abuse. This caused him to react quickly to hand movements. Recognizing that Zane would need additional support in order to move forward, MAGSR has been working with K9 Koncepts to support Zane over the last few months. During this time, Zane has benefitted from a board and train program where he has learned all of his commands and has been working to desensitize him to hand movements. Zane is best suited for a home with previous GSD experience. His new family would continue working with K9 Koncepts to learn about his training and commands. This training is already covered by MAGSR. Zane is looking for a family that will provide him with the guidance, leadership, and safety that all dogs deserve. Is your home the right fit?
