Mid-Atlantic German Shepherd Rescue Rescue of the Month Maui
The Pennsylvania Dutch Market has chosen Maui, a 2-year-old German Shepherd as our Rescue of the Month. Our hope is that someone will open their heart and their home and finally give this girl the life she deserves.
Maui was picked up as a stray and brought to a local shelter. Although she waited patiently for her family to claim her, no one arrived to take her home. When we got the call to help Maui move forward, we immediately welcomed her to the MAGSR family.
As a typical young shepherd, Maui is full of energy. She is a playful and affectionate girl. Ready for a game of fetch at any time, Maui is hoping that her new family likes to throw the ball around. In order to burn her energy in a healthy way, Maui's new family will need to exercise both her body and her mind on a regular basis. Highly motivated by both treats and toys, Maui will be a joy to work with and training will be a breeze. Training will not only help Maui bond to her new family but it will also help her develop into a good canine citizen.
Unfortunately, we have learned that Maui is heartworm positive. This diagnosis could have been avoided had she been provided with monthly heartworm preventatives. The cost of Maui's entire treatment will be covered by MAGSR. Treatment is expensive but sweet Maui is more than worth the cost. Please consider donating toward Maui's treatment. Your generosity will help us save her as well as other dogs with medical needs. Maui will need to take it slow over the next few months. However, she will be back to full strength as soon as her treatment is complete. If this lovely lady sounds like the right match for your household, ask to meet her today!
I wish someone would tell me what it is
That I’ve done wrong.
Why I have to stay chained up and
Left alone so long.
They seemed so glad to have me when
I came here as a pup.
There were so many things we’d do
While I was growing up.
They couldn’t wait to train me as a
Companion and a friend.
And told me how they’d never fear
Being left alone again.
The children said they’d feed me and
Brush me every day.
They’d play with me and walk me
If I could only stay.
But now the family “Hasn’t Time”;
They often say I shed.
They do not want me in the house
Not even to be fed.
The children never walk me.
They always say, “NOT NOW!”
I wish that I could please them.
Won’t someone tell me how?
All I had, you see, was love.
I wish they would explain
Why they said they wanted me,
Then left me on a chain?
