    Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. Beautiful Molly came into MOGS with another GSD, Sonny, when their owner passed away and the family was not able to take them in. She's currently in a training program with Gentle Dog Training, and will be available for adoption once that is complete. Stay tuned for more information! FULL BIO COMING SOON! MOLLY'S ADOPTION FEE: $300 This fee covers only part of what we spend to vet, board and rehab the dogs we save. On average we spend over $450 on each dog. We made a decision to keep our adoption fee at the 2005 level even though vet prices have doubled and tripled since then. We are constantly fundraising to cover the deficit. At minimum, your adoption fee includes the dog's spay/neuter, heartworm test, heartworm treatment if needed, rabies shot, distemper/parvo shot, bordatella shot, deworming, monthly heartworm and flea preventives, and microchip. In many cases it also includes surgery and various types of vet treatment for standard issues such as hot spots, ear infections and so on. INTERESTED IN ADOPTING MOLLY? Complete an Adoption Application Now! PLEASE READ THIS: We're picky about our adopters! GSDs are not for everyone. They demand lots of time/effort/training. They shed all year round and are big and scare lots of people. They "mouth" and are usually strong-willed and stubborn. You have to have references and a home visit. If you're not willing/able to deal with any of this, please don't waste your time applying. All MoGS dogs must be inside family pets. We do not adopt to outdoor only homes. You have to put your dog indoors (NOT in the yard) when you're not home.

Privacy fences have been broken into, gates have been opened, thieves have stolen dogs. NEVER leave your dog outdoors when you're not home!! You're required to make a lifetime commitment. Only you can make sure the dog is safe, loved and cared for, for life. The minute you adopt, that responsibility is yours. Are you unable or unwilling to make a lifetime commitment? Do not apply.

    Quinn

    verified

    rescue
    Breed: German Shepherd Dog
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Adult
    Location: Kansas City, MO
    Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. Quinn is a beautiful and magnificent girl and at 5-6 yrs old is a great age to avoid the puppy-crazy-demands but with tons of life to give over many more years. She is a LOVER and bonds quickly and hard with her people! She has lots of snuggles and love to give. Originally found as a stray, she was kept by the finder and used to breed, then later left at a local shelter because she was no longer a useful breeding dog. Quinn so adores being with her people that she'll take scratches and cuddles over running around in the yard! In fact, if you shut the door to the yard, she'll stand at the door for 15 minutes just to be sure you're not still on the other side. Finally she'll go run around and have a good time. But she clearly would rather be with her people, just chilling out if that's what her people are doing, than running around on her own. She will lay quietly at your side and just enjoy life. She's crate and house trained, and knows how to use a doggie door. She does get along with other dogs, but requires slow introductions to other animals. She would make a wonderful only dog, too! She is cat tolerant as long as they do not try to run away from her or try to bat at her. She is easy to correct and only wants to please her people. Quinn doesn't know a stranger and has been friendly with everyone she has met. She did well when introduced to older children (11-12). A 6 foot fence is required, or direct supervision when outside. The reason is that although she's adapted well in foster care, she did climb the 6 ft chain link fence at the shelter (never observed in foster care). She walks on a leash nicely and knows several commands (sit, wait, here, okay). Her ideal home will have plenty of and snuggles and cuddles. A dog friend of similar size and medium energy that could be introduced slowly (she gets along quicker with males but is tolerant of some females). Or she would be content as an only dog in a loving family. When Quinn came into the program she was heartworm positive and had a mass on her side. While in foster care she has received her Heartworm treatment and the mass -- which was biopsied and found to be just a fatty cyst -- has been removed. Quinn is a true sweet heart that has many years of love to give to a lucky family. Are you her forever home?

    rescue
    Breed: German Shepherd Dog
    Sex: Male Male
    Age: Adult
    Location: Kansas City, MO
    Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. *** Please Note: Caesar is not currently available for adoption. We're still dealing with a number of medical issues. Any adoption applications submitted for Caesar will be put on hold until we determine he's ready for adoption. It could easily take 4-6 months for his health to reach that point. Thanks for your understanding! *** CRUELTY CASE! Caesar is a 7-year old German Shepherd who was left at a city shelter one week before Christmas. The owner first claimed Caesar was just a "stray", then said he owned the dog but Caesar had been "missing" for a month, and finally admitted none of that was true. The truth was simple: Caesar was a chained backyard dog who was systematically starved and had nearly frozen to death in subzero weather. The shelter immediately called MOGS to ask if we'd take Caesar's case and we said "Absolutely!" Shelter staff and MOGS volunteers swung into action and rushed him to an emergency vet. Below is a short summary of what happened from then to now. Dec. 18: rushed to emergency vet. Given fluids, antibiotics and pain meds. Stayed overnight. Unable to walk at all and had to be carried everywhere. Dec. 19: transferred to regular vet. First priority was food and rest. Goal was to stabilize his body condition so in-depth diagnositics could be done for his multiple conditions. Didn't know if he would survive and took it day by day. Named him "Caesar" -- we believed he WOULD conquer and eventually go to a loving home. Dec. 22 - got first laser treatment. Limping on his one good back leg with support, but unable to put any weight on his "bad" back leg Dec. 25 - first Christmas warm and fed!! Got his first toy, but didn't know what it was Dec. 28 - starting to "toe touch" with bad back leg (letting toe touch ground). Still no weight on that leg. Dec. 29 - gained 1.6 lbs in 11 days. Has a carefully controlled slow-weight-gain plan to avoid overwhelming his long-starved system Poor Caesar was truly a 'hot mess': he was comatose, literally frozen from sub-zero temperatures, couldn't walk and had to be carried by a stretcher, had a badly injured back leg, a screamingly-painful back end (he literally screamed at touch), a sunken eye, no teeth, bad gums, almost no fur, and was heartworm positive. He was also a living skeleton, at least 30-40 lbs underweight. How he survived the vicious winter weather and temperatures of the prior weekend was a mystery to all of us. Most shelters would have immediately euthanized a dog in Caesar's condition, but Kansas City Pet Project is different. They immediately called MOGS and asked if we would consider taking him into our rescue. We instantly said "YES!". KCPP staff and MOGS volunteers then rushed Caesar to an emergency vet for examination. We knew it was possible that he might need to be euthanized, and we held our breath as xrays were taken and bloodwork done. There were many possible explanations for his incredibly painful back end and inability to walk -- from bone cancer to an attack of some kind. But then good news came: his chest, abdomen and leg xrays were all clean - no tumors, no bone breaks or fractures. Huge sigh of relief! Then his bloodwork showed mixed results: basic organ values (kidney, liver, etc) were good, but other values (white blood cell count, etc) were elevated. Those elevated counts were consistent with malnutrition, but could also be due to other conditions. With a huge sigh of relief, we made the decision to treat him and commit to his longterm rehab. That's when we renamed him Caesar - because we felt he is a conqueror and can win this battle. PLEASE READ THIS: We're picky about our adopters! GSDs are not for everyone.

    Breed: German Shepherd Dog
    Sex: Female Female
    Age: Young
    Location: Kansas City, MO
    Posted Breed: German Shepherd Dog. RAVEN is a stunningly beautiful, young, coated GSD who was VERY badly abused by someone. She came to us from a shelter where she was left, and she was utterly terrified of human beings. She simply shut down when people came near. She had to be carried everywhere: to the vet clinic, to the car, to her foster home. THEN: Her First Weeks At first Raven hid in her crate in her foster home and only came out when slowly made to on a long lead to go potty. Each time was a 30 minute process to slowly coax her out, and her foster mom discovered that by crawling partway into the crate, talking to her, and rubbing the inside of her back leg, she would relax enough to come on the leash. She immediately tried to run and hide in the yard and freaked out on the leash. After pottying she broke all speeds record flying past her foster mom to get back to her crate. Once safely back in her crate, she plastered herself to the back and hardly moved a muscle. In her first 10 days she refused to move from the back of her crate. She also refused to eat or driink while humans were around, so we had to leave food and water overnight to make sure she ate and drank. She literally broke our hearts. Then, after the first 10 days, she suddenly began to panic in her crate and ripped at the front of it to get out. Yet she still didn't want to be around humans and had to be on a long lead all the time. NOW: Still Shy But Playful & Loving Life She's made good progress. After a month of gentle coaxing and letting her take things at her own pace, Raven was loose with 3 other large dogs in the foster pack and was much better around her foster mom. She loves other dogs and they're her comfort zone. She has came out of her shell completely with her foster mom but can still be very shy around strangers and in new situations. She also still runs away at certain types of noises, startling easily with unfamiliar circumstances and bolting quickly quickly at sudden movements or noises. Her crate has become her safe place and she voluntarily goes in it much of the time with the dog remaining open. She must have access to a large, comfortable crate at all times. Raven will continue to be a flight risk for some time to come, until her trust in humans is fully restored. Once bonded, though, she looks to her humans for fun and approval and tons of pets and belly rubs!!! Our best guess is that once bonded she wouldn't leave her humans unless suddenly startled. ENERGY LEVEL She has a nice, moderate energy level. She LOVES to play in the yard with the other dogs and given her choice she'll spend a lot of time in the yard. But she's very calm indoors and settles beautifully. She can get mischievious from time to time, grabbing a shoe and gently mouthing it. THE BOTTOM LINE 1. CONTINUING WORK: Raven has come a very long way and her new family will need to continue the work. We've established a baseline of trust in the foster home, and the new family will need to extend that not only to their family but also to the 'outside world'. Raven apparently never knew human kindness in her life before coming to us, so she's really just starting her journey to learn to trust humans. She still ducks her head when approaching or being approached (though it's much better these days!) and does best when invited to approach you by gently calling her and often bending down to do it. If the other dogs come up to you, Raven will come up readily but when they leave Raven often does too. She has become more outgoing about asking for pets and love and belly rubs - a great sign! 2. YOU MUST HAVE ANOTHER DOG IN THE HOUSE. She MUST have another dog of approximately her size and play level, a dog who's already confident and secure. She needs a play buddy and a guide, teacher, and mentor. Raven follows the other dogs and does what they do. The other dog in her new family will be her comfort zone at first, until she bonds with the humans. The only reason she's made such good progress to date is by following the lead of the other dogs in her foster home. 3. PATIENCE & GENTLENESS: Raven's new family MUST have patience, a quiet and gentle touch, and the willingness to let Raven emerge from her abuse in her own time. She CAN NOT BE FORCED - she will retreat. She can only learn to trust people with continued time and experience. Raven will be a truy stunning dog when she comes into her own. Once or twice she's "pranced" for a short distance in the yard, and seems to be carefree for just a few seconds. In those times she's magnificent. But it will be a slow journey, and she needs the love and patience of a kind, gentle family to break through her former abuse and get it behind her. OTHER Raven has a spark of true GSD in her. She has one special buddy in the foster home, and when one of the other dogs played too roughly with her special buddy Raven misunderstood. She thought the dog was being mean to her buddy and was immediately on her feet and in the dog's face, barking and air snapping at the dog (who immediately stopped). She also reacted through the fence to a neighbor dog who's dog aggressive, and charges the fence barking. We found out Raven can jump high -- she tried to get her paws on the top of the 6' fence! Raven has a wonderful deep GSD bark and will bark at people who approach "her" door, so she'll make a good alert dog. Otherwise we haven't seen anything but friendliness and playfulness from Raven. She does ok on leash but we haven't done a lot of work with her on that yet. She is largely crate trained (needs to be crated next to another dog) and mostly potty trained (if there's a spot that smells of other dogs and she's left too long, she will use that spot). MEDICAL Raven has gained weight and is in great shape. She was heartworm positive but has been treated and is completely healthy. She's spayed, microchipped, and up to date on shots. DOGS: YES. MUST HAVE A DOGGIE PLAY BUDDY who is confident and can teach and mentor Raven! Medium size or large dog who can play/wrestle with her CATS: Unknown. Would have to be tested. KIDS: No small children due to the noise and chaos that would terrify Raven even more. Kids 10 and up only. FENCE: MUST HAVE A 6' PHYSICAL FENCE THAT IS ABSOLUTELY SECURE - Raven is a flight risk and will be for some time. She can also jump high. IDEAL FAMILY: A patient, loving family who will continue to guide her on her journey to trust and confidence. A family with another dog who will be her play buddy, best friend, and role model. A family who will be gentle and encouraging, and never lose patience with Raven as she works through the final stages of her fear and distrust. A family willing to help her fully blossom into the incredible dog she really is. If you want to help a terrified, abused German Shepherd heal and love her forever, RAVEN may just be the dog you're looking for! RAVEN's ADOPTION FEE: $300 This fee covers only part of what we spend to vet, board and rehab the dogs we save. On average we spend over $450 on each dog. We made a decision to keep our adoption fee at the 2005 level even though vet prices have doubled and tripled since then. We are constantly fundraising to cover the deficit. At minimum, your adoption fee includes the dog's spay/neuter, heartworm test, heartworm treatment if needed, rabies shot, distemper/parvo shot, bordatella shot, deworming, monthly heartworm and flea preventives, and microchip. In many cases it also includes surgery and various types of vet treatment for standard issues such as hot spots, ear infections and so on. INTERESTED IN ADOPTING RAVEN? Complete an Adoption Application Now! PLEASE READ THIS: We're picky about our adopters! GSDs are not for everyone. They demand lots of time/effort/training. They shed all year round and are big and scare lots of people. They "mouth" and are usually strong-willed and stubborn. You have to have references and a home visit. If you're not willing/able to deal with any of this, please don't waste your time applying. All MoGS dogs must be inside family pets. We do not adopt to outdoor only homes. You have to put your dog indoors (NOT in the yard) when you're not home. One adopted MoGS dog died after the owners left to run errands, left her outdoors, someone opened the gate, and she was hit by a car. Privacy fences have been broken into, gates have been opened, thieves have stolen dogs. NEVER leave your dog outdoors when you're not home!! You're required to make a lifetime commitment. Only you can make sure the dog is safe, loved and cared for, for life. The minute you adopt, that responsibility is yours. Are you unable or unwilling to make a lifetime commitment? Do not apply. What's your plan for unexpected events and major changes? New baby? Divorce? Moving? How you will provide for your dog if your family breaks up? If you move? If you have a child? You're making a lifetime commitment to a MOGS Dog. We expect you to keep it! It's YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to stick by your family member -- no matter what. Have Questions? Email us at mogsrescue@gmail.com Thank you for considering a homeless dog or cat.
