MAXINE aka “Maxie” to her foster mom is a petite and adorable 2.5 year old German Shepherd mix. She was surrendered by her owner when she needed a costly surgical procedure and medical attention, and the owner simply couldn't afford it.  She had a prolapsed rectum due to having had diarrhea for an extended period of time that wasn't addressed. She was also extremely emaciated, and full of parasites.  The good news is, she's on the great road to recover.  Now living a happy and MUCH healthier, normal life in foster care, this cutie is on the search for her perfect family!


Maxine is a soft-eared sweetheart, who is very loving and bonds with her people quickly.  She is also a very well-mannered dog. She waits for permission to eat, to come through the door from the outside, now walks well on a leash with a gentle leader, is house trained, and crate trained. She likes to give doggie kisses, and is quite a talker – she is a “happy barker” and just wants to “talk” the ear off her foster mom about how happy she is that her people are home for the day from work, and how much she loves them. She really enjoys car rides, and going out to places with her foster family. She will even share all of the exciting things that she sees as you drive by!

Other Animals

Maxie has a favorite green bouncy ball which she loves to play with, but may need some practice sharing toys with other dogs. She does gets along well with her other foster siblings, but may be just fine as an only dog. Maxine cannot be placed in a home with cats.


Unknown at this time


After a long recovery following surgery Maxine has put on weight and her health is now in a steady state. She does best when fed 3-4 times a day and will need to be kept on a special diet- both of these help avoid flare ups of her IBD. She can occasionally be fed just twice a day, but would not recommend it long term.


Maxie is a sweetheart of a dog who needs just a little extra medical awareness/attention, and LOTS of love! Do you have a heart big enough for this girl?

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.

  1. We're picky about our adopters!  GSDs are not for everyone.  They take a lot of time, effort and training.  They shed all year round.  They're 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 or able to deal with any of this, please don't waste your time applying.  
  2. All MOGS dogs must be inside family pets. We do not adopt to outdoor only homes.
  3. When you're not home, you must put your dog indoors (NOT in the yard).  One adopted MoGS dog died after the owners went to run errands, left her outdoors, someone opened the gate, and she was hit by a car.  Privacy fences get broken into, gates are opened, thieves steal dogs. NEVER leave your dog outdoors when you're not home!!
  4. You're required to make a lifetime commitment.  The minute you adopt, it is your responsibility to keep your dog safe, loved and cared for FOR LIFE.  Only you can do that.
  5. Are you unable or unwilling to make a lifetime commitment? Do not apply.
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
