What a beautiful baby.
Oct 4, 2007 macmav
She is soooo cute! Love the ones with her tongue out. Many happy years to you!
Oct 4, 2007 harlequinguy
1,000 biscuits.
Oct 4, 2007 Mixie
What a beautiful girl you have. Definitely 11 biscuits from me! I think you are wonderful people for rescueing her, it doesn't matter where you rescued her from.... all that matters is that she now has the chance to lead a happy and healthy life. Oh, and I love how her cute little pink toungue pokes out in this photo :)
Oct 4, 2007 harry's mom
This is one contented puppy in this picture, I am sure she has come a long way since you first got her.

I agree with Mixie it does not matter where you rescued her from what matters is that you took her out of the situation she was in and as you said you would have done this even if she was not the right dog for you.

Harry's best friend is a white shepherd but Kai has long hair.

Lily and Rosie (the cats) pass their sympathies on to the cat in Maggies life. Their best advice would be to find the highest spot in the house and tease her from there, they say this drives Harry insane!

I wish you many many happy years with Maggie.

Oh my goodness! My German Shephard does the same thing when eating. She even has a heavy padded mat for ease of getting up.
Oct 4, 2007 puppiesrus
Hi! Congratulations on rescuing Maggie! She is gorgeous. You should definitely report the people you got her from to the ASPCA or something - no animals should be kept in those conditions. Enjoy your puppy :)
Oct 4, 2007 justtri
What an adorable puppy and good for you for totally rescuing her!

My baby's name is Maggie also and she is a german shepherd mix with the same face as your Maggie. Many happy years together and a million biscuits to you for all you have done.
Oct 4, 2007 pomtzu
It looks like Maggie has come a long way since you first took her home - she is so happy and healthy looking. And no matter where you got her, the importamt thing is that she now has the proper environment to thrive in. Many happy years together. (And yes - she does look like a Lab)

Maggie is a cutie-pie........hope you are blessed with the 14.5 years we had with our Shepard: Shayna Von Leiberstrom

a word of advice:
in my experience with German Shepards.......their ears don't always "go up" on their own......you may have to tape them to train them up.......ask you vet......if you don't tape them ....she'll always look like a mixed breed

[color=red]How cute! I'm very happy to know that Maggie is thriving, she looks happy, and healthy and soooooo cute (I know, I've already said that, but look at her!). Lots of biscuits for you little one...[/color]

Pweety baby~! Look at dat tongue! Awww~~
Oct 4, 2007 woopwoof
What a beauty of a dog. She does look like a labarador and I have never seen a white german shepherd before. Many many biscuites to you Maggie..
Oct 4, 2007 Jeannie
I am so glad you found each other. Wishing you many long and happy years together. She looks cute - and she's obviously come a long way. If you hadn't taken her, I hate to think of what could have happened. She's a credit to you!!
Oct 4, 2007 llt214
Thank you for taking such good care of Maggie. She certainly looks very healthy and well taken care of...She is absolutely gorgeous!!! I wish you many, many happy years with this lovely girl. Smooches to you Maggie!
Oct 4, 2007 djames922@yahoo.com
First of all congratulations on your newest addition to your family. Secondly, if you would please call a local rescue shelter in your area and ask them how you can report the conditions you saw where you got her. Hopefully this will help to get them investigated and they will either be fined, shut down or clean up their act. I am sure Miss Maggie would be grateful. Enjoy your cute as can be pup.
Oct 4, 2007 Grandma Helen of CT
Maggie is a sweet Puppy. I hope you reported the people who ran the add. Leave her ears alone. Check her hearing, as white animals can be deaf. It makes no difference if she is purebread or not. Love her as we all would. Bless you for letting us see her.xo
Oct 4, 2007 smidgebean
Maggie is beautiful and lucky to have you! And I think her ears look adorable just the way they are!
Oct 4, 2007 doggieaunt
Lucky Maggie!!! Lucky you!!!

I agree that you should go after those creeps, or, more correctly, let the ASPCA do it. You did the right thing -- and even if you had to "buy" Maggie (which in this case sounds more like paying a ransom or a bribe), I still think you very much did the right thing.

Maggie certainly thinks so!!

And you also did the right thing by all us Daily Puppy-ites by letting us share Maggie's cuteness!
Oct 4, 2007 Rufus77
I never heard of a white German Shepherd. They are extremley cute.
Oct 4, 2007 gnichols
I got my Chloe under very similar conditions, a precious 5 week old mini Cocker, who was in a pet emergency room the whole first night we got her, so eaten up with fleas and tapeworms and skin irritation, we didn't know if she was going to make it. She is now 3 years old and the CENTER or our household, this gorgeous little bundle of black and white energy, and I can't imagine her not being part of our family, regardless how it all started. I believe you do what you can when you can, and hope that the proper authorities will do the rest.

Regardless, BLESS you Maggie's Mom for giving this darling puppy the loving home every puppy deserves. Chloe's Mom
Oct 4, 2007 oneacd
Maggie is beautiful, but so much like a lab that I suspect there might have been one in the woodpile (wink!). Sounds like her "breeders" weren't too picky about things anyway.
Glad to see that Maggie has found her forever home with people who love and care for her. Congrats to you! Hope the "breeders" get what they deserve as well.
Oct 4, 2007 DogMom
Maggie is beautiful. She is lucky you found her..... Enjoy your gorgeous baby.
Oct 4, 2007 bongo
Maggie looks like a wonderful, happy puppy!
Oct 4, 2007 ceallaig
Maggie is gorgeous, and bless you for taking her out of that hell hole. If all you'd done is report the people, Maggie might well be dead now -- instead she has a wonderful forever home with people that take good care of her and love her pieces.

BTW, I agree about the ears -- they do look lab to me, and I think they're adorable. If they don't go up on their own, leave them be, she's just beautiful the way she is!
Oct 4, 2007 rexandbaby
Bless you Maggie's Mom for doing right by that girl! My GSD Rex also came from a puppy mill, which is now closed thank goodness, he is now 2 1/2 and cost us about as much as I would have spent for a "great breeder dog". But that said, I love him with all my heart, and am glad to have found him! Enjoy, and keep up the great job!
Oct 4, 2007 puppypac
What a beautiful little girl! Good for you for saving her. She will reward you many times over.
Oct 4, 2007 LJ53702000
Maggie is beautiful!! Best of luck for many happy and healthy years with your new baby!
Oct 4, 2007 Koda's Mom
By the way Maggie, you look JUST like my baby, Koda, in this picture. He's a white lab ... whatever your breed, wherever you came from, you're precious and I commend your parents for pulling you out of that situation! MANY biscuits and belly rubs to you sweet girl!
Oct 4, 2007 Koda's Mom
I'm sorry I just saw that I meant to say I DON'T take that and use it as ammunition on this site ...
Oct 4, 2007 jilbean3
beautiful!
Oct 4, 2007 jrterriermom
Maggie is a cutie pie. I love how her little tongue hangs out, my pup does the same thing. Makes me wish I was at home with her instead of at work. :) Many years of happiness with your little girl.
Oct 4, 2007 JulieS77
She is so beautiful! Thank you for what you did! All dogs/puppies are beautiful and deserve loving homes no matter where they come from - breeder or not!! I understand what you mean about not being able to just leave her there.... it looks like your choice worked out! Good for you! Many years of love!!
Oct 4, 2007 bongo
Isn't it funny how people who start out criticizing others for "venting" end up leaving the longest, most rambling comments?
;)
Oct 4, 2007 luna
I think your Maggie is beautiful and was very lucky that you came to get her out of that situation. Shame on the people and place you got her from, but you did the right thing... not by helping support them, but helping Maggie who had no choice in the matter as to where she was born be it a puppy mill or on the street.

I have what we think is a lab/shephard mix as well. Luna is more of a yellow with white markings like a lab, but her ears are smaller and at times stand up just like a shephard. As she got older they stood up more. Anyway best of luck to you both.. our vote is 11 for you and Maggie!!
Oct 4, 2007 gromitwensleydale
What a lovely puppy! Just look at those eyes. And such a sweet expression. I hope Maggie is as adorable and kindly as she looks.
Oct 4, 2007 BklynKel
Maggie is beautiful! Not so sure about the German Shepard part, but regardless of what she is, she's beautiful and much happier and safer where she is now.
As far as her coming from a possible puppy mill, I'm sure her new parents thought a private breeder would offer better conditions than a puppy mill. They could have walked away from Maggie after seeing her in such bad shape, but they didn't. They took her home, took care of her, and gave her the loving home she would not have gotten where she came from. In my book, that IS a rescue. I do agree the "breeders" should be reported.
Oct 4, 2007 FRITZY
I think Maggie is so blessed to have humans and a family that DID rescue her and gave her a life all dogs should have!!! She is so beautiful and God bless you for taking her in, overlooking the fact that she may not have been what you were looking for. You are kind hearted,loving and sensative. Maggie has and will continue to bring joy and love beyond anything you can imagine. Thanks for sharing your story with us. We love to hear and see happy puppies!!! :)

Oct 4, 2007 marieelise0928
First of all - a beautiful, beautiful pup, and she's lucky to have you!

That said, I bet Maggie is sure happy in her new home, and ears up or down, she is DARLING!
Oct 4, 2007 zoesam
Maggie is such a sweetheart- so cute! Please give her a bunch of belly rubs and kisses. She does look much like a lab, whatever her breed- she is darling. Hope you have many years with this bundle of joy!

Also, the tongue partially sticking out is too cute for words!
Oct 4, 2007 caraschotch
Lots of love and luck and bickies for the beautiful Maggie!
Oct 4, 2007 roscoeroxypepper
Maggie you are just beautiful!!!! And Maggie's parents, you are wonderful people to save her and care for her the way you do. God bless your family

What a beautiful puppy! I have never heard of a white German Shepherd but she is gorgeous. 11 biscuits and many happy years to all of you! God Bless you for giving this girl a happy and loving home!

Miss Magdalene is a stunning girl!
Oct 4, 2007 cariescarebear
**Pfffffftttt** doggie raspberries are the best :) Maggie is goregous and is very lucky to have come into your lives. I love happy endings and it sure seems like Maggie has gotten one.

Wishing you many years of happiness with your beautiful new little girl :)
Oct 4, 2007 dogsrule
I love white Shepherds! Maggie is stunning!

Bless you for rescuing this precious baby from that awful place. Just think what would have happened if you hadn't discovered the abandoned dogs. How people can be so cruel I will NEVER KNOW!

Good luck and lots of hugs and biscuits to you and your family/dog family. :)
Oct 4, 2007 caseyanddavesmom
What a beautiful dog!!!!!!!! Live long and play happy Maggie. Give your Mom and Dad lots of kisses for bring you home. Job well done to your Mom and Dad !!!!!!!
Oct 4, 2007 MC&P's mom
This is Maggie's mom. It breaks my heart that most of the comments are directed toward my husband and I instead of commenting on our puppy. I submitted her so everyone could share in her beauty and cuteness. Never would we support such inhumane actions, but we would never turn our back on a poor defenseless puppy either. May the powers that be make them pay for their actions. Please, relish in the fact that she's safe and now healthy, instead of things outside of our control. I hope Maggie has brought a smile to your face, as she does mine every morning, noon, and night.
Oct 4, 2007 Kiragirl
Good peeps, good dog!
Oct 4, 2007 walkinthedog
I love german shepherds and Maggie's just reminds me why. What a darling puppy! May she bring you years of happiness. I love to hear rescue stories too and yours is just as wonderful as everyone else's. Congrats on getting her out of a crappy situation. She's a doll!
Oct 4, 2007 kitkat_00
What a beautiful dog baby! I [i]woof[/i] her to pieces.
Oct 4, 2007 heylady54
She looks just like our yellow lab!!! I love the picture sleeping with the pink toy. Our dog also had a rough start, several homes and one mean man, but she is a happy dog now! Give her lots of hugs and kisses each day!
Oct 4, 2007 craney808
Maggie's mom:
Thank you for rescuing this pretty pup!
Oct 4, 2007 keep.her
Maggie - you're a beautiful baby! Congratulations to your new addition to your family. I know puppies can be a handful!!

(My family includes: Duke (rescued German Shepherd - 2), Lopez (bought Chihuahua - 5), ChiChi (bought Chihuahua - 4), and Rascal (bought toy poodle - 4 months))
Oct 4, 2007 AuntTasty
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO precious! Wook at da widdle faaaaace!!!!!!!!!! 11 biscuits from me, Maggie baby!
Oct 4, 2007 bopeep
Maggie is all about happiness and contentment. She is beautiful and may you have a long, happy life with your beauty. Hugs, kisses and 11 biscuits. Please submit her to the grown up puppy, would love to see her then.
Oct 4, 2007 bbba80
to Maggie and her parents,
She's a beauty and you are all lucky to have found each other. I think you did a good thing saving her. I love this picture. She looks so lovable. Hugs to all of your family. Thanks for the smiles.
Oct 4, 2007 earskritch
Such a happy, drowsy girl. Who da sweetest pupper? You is! You is!
Ahem.
I love Maggie's soft eyes and ears. Shepherds are my favorites, and white shepherds are stunning.
A zillion biscuits and a nose-smooch too!
Oct 4, 2007 postiemayer
Wow, had to get thru a lot of stuff to get to where I could tell you how beautiful Maggie is even if I would guess her to be a lab also with that smooth coat. You guys did good, she has a happy home and I wish you many healthy years together.
Oct 4, 2007 goldengirl2
I am so glad you all found each other- how lucky for both of you! Maggie is gorgeous, and looks like such a sweetheart. Lots of hugs and belly rubs!!
Oct 4, 2007 LucyB
What a pretty,pretty girl she is! I wish you many happy years with her. It was nearly impossible to choose just one picture-love the ones with her bowl and sleeping with her toy as much as the one I did finally select.Lucky her and lucky you.I send her a puppy hug from Georgia!
Oct 4, 2007 jakesmom
Maggie is beautiful. I commend you, Maggie's Mom - for rescuing her - for indeed you did. I couldn't have left her myself, but I would have certainly considered the firebomb idea! You didn't say whether or not you reported those people, and I'm not going to assume you didn't, but I hope you did.
She is adorable, and looks capable of much mischief! Many happy years to you both!
Oct 4, 2007 doxiemommy83
Oh mAg-Pie you are a beautiful baby! I hope you get posted to grown up puppies when your ears go up because I would LOVE to see that!
Shame on these people making all these dumb comments- congrats are your gorgeous girl and may you grow old with her and enjoy her!
Oct 4, 2007 tamijohansen
Thank you for getting Maggie out of there! People like that should be reported (I hope you did) - it just isn't fair to the animals - they didn't ask to be brought into a world like that :( On a happier note - she is a doll! I love her sad puppy dog eyes in this pic! Soooo cute! Enjoy her!
Oct 4, 2007 werleybird
Maggie is soooooooo adorable!!! Congrats of rescuing her. She was very lucky to find such a caring Mom & Dad, and Mom & Dad are lucky too.
As to the taping her ears or consulting the vet if her ears don't go up on their own, all I can say is don't do it. Not all German Shephards ears go up. If they don't, then they weren't meant to. Our shephard has 1 up and 1 down. I think Maggie will look sweet with ears up or down.
I wish you many years of happiness with her. You can definately see how happy she is in all these photos. G.S.'s are an amazing dogs.
Oct 4, 2007 Stella&Sooner'sMom
What a sweet baby!! She looks so happy and loved. Here's to many happy years together!

11 biscuits!
Oct 4, 2007 jayddw
Thank you so much for saving precious Maggie from the deep depths of sadness. But looking at this picture, you do believe that she is soooooooooo comfortable in her surroundings. She has that face that would launch a million milk bones.
Oct 4, 2007 Yankee-7
She's a sure sweetie.
I once had a pom from a similar situation as Maggie. I guess I should have reported her owners. I'm glad Maggie turned out better than my pom.
Oct 4, 2007 kribro01
Maggie is beautiful. She is not however a german shephard, she is a yelow lab. When you buy from a puppy mill, you sometimes don't get what you think you're getting. I think she is beautiful either way!
Oct 4, 2007 Shelterdog
Maggie's a lovely, lucky girl.
Oct 4, 2007 rheiden
What a wonderful story. Maggie is so obviously a much-loved animal -- her fate could have been so different. Whether or not she came from a puppy mill, she was truly rescued and deserves a lifetime of love and security. I believe dogs were put on this earth to love and be loved. Hats off the Maggie's Mom!
Oct 4, 2007 mash18020
I'm so sorry to Maggies mom and dad that most of these comments are directed towards you. Some were very insensitive. But I think it's a wonderful thing you did for her by rescuing her. I just had to tell you that.

As for you Maggie.....you are ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!! And so beautiful.....now no mud rolling!!! You wanna keep that pretty white coat clean! A million bisquits to you sweety pie.
Oct 4, 2007 snobles
Maggie is so cute! I love her puppy pics. I think it was great that you rescued her. I wish you many years of happiness together. :-)
We have a white shepherd, Daisy, that we love. They are really amazing creatures. She's 3 now and we love her more every day.

PS: Lots of people thought she was a lab until her ears stood up too. But there is no mistaking the "shepherd nose."
Oct 4, 2007 ceallaig
Long years and many biscuits to a beautiful girl, and hugs to the kind people who brought her home!
Oct 4, 2007 bayley's mom
Wow....Maggie is a beauty! Congrats to you for rescuing her....she is obviously a loved baby! Have many years of happiness with her.

I posted my thoughts on this whole discussion in the forum section where they belong!
Oct 4, 2007 doggielover80
maggie is completely adorable! maybe you can post pics of her when she's a "grown-up puppy" so we can see her ears! : ) i want a white gsd for my next dog. i have a gsd now and she's my baby!
Oct 4, 2007 devgurl00
What a beautiful dog! I didn't know German Shepherds came in white. She is gorgeous.

Kudos to you for saving her from the puppy mill. I call that a rescue anyway. I know a lot of people think you shouldn't support a puppy mill, and I agree, but who's going to save those dogs if we don't?

Maggie is just precious.
Oct 4, 2007 pooh91158
Maggie has got to be one of the sweetest, most cuddly pups I' ve seen on here! She's beautiful!!! I never knew about German Shepherd's ears "going up" until I started coming to this site regularly. Fascinating! Up or down, though...she'll be gorgous! Btw...2 of my 4 girls were near death (literally) when I took them in and are both happy, healthy 6 year olds now. Wishing you many years of happiness with each other!!
Oct 4, 2007 sams*mom
To Maggie's Mom and Dad: I am so sorry some people felt they had to post the comments they did. I guess the only thing you could say is people definitely are passionate in their views. Please try to overlook their insensitivity. The word "rescue" takes on many meanings, especially in a situation like this. Bless you for not even hesitating to rescue Maggie from that horrible situation. She is absolutely beautiful and you can tell she's happy, healthy and well-loved. I'm sure you thank the powers that be for leading you to her that day. You are both lucky to have found each other! Many blessings to you all for a long, happy, healthy, fun life together!

Hugs from Sammy [also a "rescue"] and his mom.
Oct 4, 2007 poohmama
God bless Maggie's parents. She is a beautiful dog with many happy years ahead of her. Maggie you are a sweetie pie.

I love this picture! Good girl, Maggie! Good girl! Puppy learning how to sit... She is so pretty!
Oct 4, 2007 lisaivey
Wow, how pretty is this pup??? I've never heard of a white shepherd, but she is gorgeous!
Oct 4, 2007 plantsforjenny
God bless this puppy! God bless you, too, for getting her out of a horrible situation.
Oct 4, 2007 magnoliasmom
Thanks for sharing your pictures of maggie. I, too, have never heard of white german shepherds - too cute! I am so glad she was able to overcome her sickly beginnings and is now a healthy, happy puppy in a wonderful loving home.
My dog's name is Magnolia and we call her Maggie too. Seems to be a popular name as many people I have met have dogs named Maggie. Best of luck to you and yours. Eleven bones to you mags!
Oct 4, 2007 jhier
I HAD A MALE JUST LIKE HER. HE WAS MY BEST FRIEND FOR MY WHOLE LIFE!!!!! I STILL TALK TO HIM IN HEAVEN!!!!! I HAVE ANOTHER WHITE MALE BUT ISN'T THE SAME AS MY FIRST, GUNTHER!!!!!!!!!!!! HE WAS THE CUTEST PUPPY EVER!!! MAKE SURE YOU SPOIL HER ROTTEN AND TAKE LOTS AND LOTS OF PICTURES ESPECIALLY NOW AND WHEN HER EARS ARE HALFWAY UP!!!! I WISH MINE WAS STILL ALIVE!!!!!!!!! MAKE SURE YOU TREAT HER LIKE GOLD!!! much happiness with Maggie!!!!!
Oct 4, 2007 KimnJaeger
Maggie is BEAUTIFUL!!! Such an intelligent looking girl, too! 50 biscuits to Maggie, and one million biscuits to her parents for saving her!
Oct 4, 2007 tomsmom
We have a white german shepherd at home as well. Bear is 4 1/2 years old and we got him when he was 6 weeks old. Your pictures of Maggie remind me of when Bear was little. His ears stood up so tall and still do. Enjoy your little Maggie.
Oct 4, 2007 veemoe
Enjoy your gorgeous pup!
Oct 4, 2007 Missabbysmom
Maggie is simply gorgeous! Give her hugs and kiss from us!
Oct 4, 2007 joandshadow
I have been looking at her pictures and trying to guess what breed she is. In the end it just does not matter, as she is the cutiest puppy, and yes she looks very healthy---good job!!!!!
Oct 4, 2007 mbolan20
I love how she sticks her little tounge out. Soooo cute!
Oct 4, 2007 ellygh
What a pretty girl Maggie is!!! How sad that her first weeks were in that awful place but how great that you came along. It sure sounds like you have her health under control now and I'm certain she is feeling so much better and loving life. As she should, I might add! I chose this pic -- it shows just how contented she is now. She's a beautiful puppy and I know that you and your family will have many wonderful years with her. Congrats on finding her!
Oct 4, 2007 Lizanne
Maggie is SWEET. Just look at those eyes. Thanks, guys, for rescuing this beautiful puppy.
A little sass never hurt any puppy. :) I am so happy you found each other and wish you a happy life together.
Much love & Hugs to Maggie from Katie =O)
Oct 4, 2007 kitanablade3
Oh goodness she reminds me of my friends' white German shepherd, he's the sweetest, most understanding guard pet ever! I hope and know Maggie with do the same for you!!! More biscuits than I can count to you!!!!
Oct 4, 2007 dogsrdivine
That diamond you found "in the rough" sure does sparkle with your love. I've never seen a white shepherd before - quite beautiful. Your story reminds me of my Lucy. She was one of two runts out of a litter of 11. When I got her she had been so severly abused & neglected my vet didn't think she would make it & wanted to put her down. I asked him to put her on IV for 24 hours & give her a chance. She had malnutrition (all bones & bloated tummy), rickets, bronchitis & broken ribs from being kicked at only 11 weeks old. My vet was amazed. With a great deal of love, nutrition & vitamins she blessed my life for 11 years. I hope you & Maggie have as long & happy relationship as Lucy & I did, & more.
Oct 4, 2007 blue and ollies mom
What a sweetheart! I know you love every minute you spend with her. Thank you for getting her out of that awful situation. There is a special place in Heaven for you. Much love to you, your family and especially your little angel--Maggie.
Oct 4, 2007 dogcopper
What a true BEAUTY!!!! There are never enough Shepherds here (but I am bias). Enjoy your wonderful puppy!
Oct 4, 2007 gill
Maggie is lovely. Well done for saving her. I'tsb people like you that the animal world need more of. Report the people that you got her from. She looks very content and happy. Hope you have a wonderful life with her.

,hail HRH maggie the snow queen! my dog used to like to scoot ice cubes too-we called them "cold bones"
Oct 4, 2007 symbrian
It breaks my heart when I hear stories of animals not being cared for properly - thankfully Maggie has a good home now.
She is absolutely gorgeous and I just love how she looks.
Congrats to Maggie to finding a great family!
Oct 4, 2007 babydollp80
Oh Maggie I love the pink of your ears, your little pink tonuge & pink toy ..... What a beautiful little girl. Ask Mommy & Daddy where's my pink collar. But she sure is a cutie pie. Enjoy all those puppy kisess.
Oct 4, 2007 Marlowe's Mom
Maggie's Mom & Dad - I'm sorry there were so many opinionated commenters - I commented earlier just saying she was beautiful. My beloved beagle was a puppy mill dog who was purchased and then given up and rescued by me from a shelter. I hate that he comes from a puppy mill, but he is a joy to me every day, and from a quick survey of our dog park friends, great dogs come from a lot of different places. I think you did the right thing, and no one has the right to tell you otherwise - one thing I've learned as a dog owner - it's political. Smooches and belly rubs to gorgeous Maggie!
Oct 4, 2007 Koda's Mom
I just want to say bless you to "dogsrdivine" it made me want to cry reading your story! What an angel you are to take care of that baby, there need to be more people in the world like you and like Maggie's mom! I just can't believe someone would KICK an 11 week old puppy ... it makes me sick to think about what goes on in the rest of the world, hopefully somehow we can all do our part to STOP it!

Again, Maggie, you're a precious girl, Koda and you would be SUCH cute boyfriend and girl friend :) Tons of pets and treats to you!
Oct 4, 2007 sylvanbliss
Miss Magdalene, you have garnered quite a lot of interest today!

We are a passionate bunch, with good intentions.

My dog eats laying down too...the picture of contentment!

Maggie is a pretty girl and we wish her a long, happy, healthy life!
Oct 4, 2007 eddie & henry's mum
Maggie is beautiful. Bless you for taking her into your loving home and nursing her back to good health. I wish you many happy years with your sweet Maggie Girl!
Oct 4, 2007 westiemom
Maggie, you are a beautiful girl! Take good care of your Mom and Dad and enjoy your long life together. Lots of biscuits for you!

To Maggie's Mom and Dad -- good job! I know you'll love this precious pup as she deserves. The only other white German Shepard I've know was a K-9 police dog. He was extremely intelligent which is par for German Shepards.

Mom & Dad, I'm sorry that you are heartbroken at the comments on this site. It made me sad to read that because I had my pup on this site awhle back and reveled in the thoughtful comments from strangers for days, maybe even weeks, and I wish for everyone to have the same experience. It's awesome to see how your own pup can affect perfect strangers.
Maggie IS gorgeous--I have never seen a white GS, never even knew they existed, and I thank Maggie for educating me on this.
As for the conditions she was found in, I'm glad she's out and healthy as can be.

[color=green]We recued my baby too, but she wasn't in the horrible conditions your baby was. Maggie is beautiful, and essentially, you saved her life! Good luck![/color]

Maggie is absolutely gorgeous. I've never seen a White German Shepard before. She looks wonderful, heathly, happy and loved. Congratulations on finding each other. All your lives will be enriched many times over. Love all the pictures.

what a beautiful little lady!!!

What a story!! Happy dog now no question...good job rescuing! She is just a living doll!!! Enjoy
Oct 4, 2007 thepupsmom
Maggie, you are beautiful. I hope we see you again as a grown up puppy--it would be fun to see those ears go straight up! Many biscuits to you and to your parents, too, for taking you away from a bad situation and helping you get well.
Oct 4, 2007 SaBeana21
Maggie is soo precious and she's very lucky to have been rescued by a loving family. She looks like she could be part yellow lab to me -- in all of her poses, she looks nearly identical to a yellow lab pup I spent a great deal of time with over the past year. Regardless, she is absolutely adorable and her photo brightened my day.
Oct 4, 2007 bethryrmg
Maggie sure is cute, and her story is very touching! I'm glad she now has such a wonderful loving home.

Re: the GSD/Lab debate. She looks very much like my Sandy who is (so I was told by the shelter) a GSD/Lab mix. Sandy looked very much like a lab as a puppy, but looks more and more like a GSD every day now that she's 18 months old. Her ears so no signs of going up though!

It is really hard to pick a favorite picture. Maggie has such an adorable expressive face I can almost hear her bark, just looking at them!
Oct 4, 2007 JaviersMom
Too, too, too much ... oh my soul, what a beauty! I love her personality, shining forth relentlessly! She knows how to flake out, too ... that's always a good sign.
Oct 4, 2007 Buddy360
Aw, what a face! Maggie is adorable!. Isn't she gorgeous, so soft looking and silky! Good looking coat, looks so sweet.
Oct 4, 2007 ard1108
Maggie, you are beautiful. You are so lucky to have such wonderful parents. I know you will have many happy times together.
Oct 4, 2007 cookiebaby
Thanks for rescuing her. She is beautiful and obviously in a loving and caring home now. Just wish more people would do the right thing. Thanks for caring!
Oct 4, 2007 laney1214
She is so beautiful! Please do report the breeder to the ASPCA! Let's help prevent more puppies in terrible conditions.

Many biscuits to you, Maggie!
Oct 4, 2007 Frogfaerie
Wow, she's gorgeous, I can't wait to see her when she's grown up - I can't yet believe she's not a lab!
You bagged yourself a nice pup there!

Oct 4, 2007 Mom2Max
I am thinking along the same lines at Frog above... are you sure she's not a lab? Whatever she might be, she's gorgeous, and I applaud you for rescuing her. I agree with several of the others above, and this person should be reported. The three pets I have are rescue animals, so I am all for that!
Oct 4, 2007 Daphne's Mom
Such a sweetie! I am so glad you rescued her! I hate how some people treat helpless animals! I hope you give her lots of love and affection. I hope she fills your lives with happiness and love.
Oct 4, 2007 dkritter
Well Maggie does look sort of Lab-bish but either way she's still a bundle of gorgeousness! I am SOOOO glad you rescued her from what sounds like would not have been a good life for her- I am sure she is very thankful for that! Enjoy that beautiful puppy in the years ahead!
Oct 4, 2007 tazziesmom
She is beautiful. I hope that whoever it was that "bred" her will be investigated. So glad she has a good home. Enjoy her!
Oct 4, 2007 Franky-Baby
OHHH... I bought my fiance' a white german and he died of parvo and i havent seen one since. He is soooo Precious!!!! Sweet Girl!
Oct 4, 2007 bordercrazed
Yellow lab? Her head isn't shaped even close to a lab head.

Anyway, she's darn adorable. And don't listen to the naysayers. People who saw pics only of my red Border Collie (who had floppy ears at 4 months) said she was a Duck Tolling Retriever. Oh if they could see her in action.

Mags you are a happy contented pup. Keep those ears down and you won't have to listen to anyone. 11 million biscuits from the once floppy eared BC's.
Oct 4, 2007 babydoll
Maggie is a sweetheart.I love the 1 where she is lying in front of her bowl and drinking instead of standing lol.To cute.Lots of belly rubs and kisses coming your way Maggie.
Oct 4, 2007 flashsma
Such a cutie! Maggie stole my heart!
Oct 4, 2007 guido's mama
THis photo makes me wanna curl up with a fire going and just watch Maggie sleep with her little toy close by!SOOOOO sweet. Thanks for making my Day!!!
Oct 4, 2007 dpeach01
I just wanted to say that Maggie is absolutely adorable and has the sweetest face I have ever seen. I have only seen a white german shepard one other time and he was full grown but he was so very smart and loving.

To Maggie's Mom and Dad- I just want to say thank you for saving another puppy from a life of misery. That is what people who love animals do. You are a god send for little Maggie. She will repay you with lots of love and kisses. Please do not allow the comments that have been made toward you to discourage you from coming to get your daily dose of puppy love on the site and from letting us see Maggie when she is all grown up on the grown up site.

Rilee, Buddy and I send lots of hugs,kisses, and snuggles for Maggie. I would say we send lots of treats but Buddy can be a little selfish.
Oct 4, 2007 MDuran75
Maggie you are sooo beautiful, adorable and sweet
11+++++++++++++++ biscuits to you.
And also 11 biscuits to your mom and dad for rescuing you from that horrible place.!!!
I have always opposed to people mistreating and abusing animals.
It just doesn't make any sense to me.
Oct 4, 2007 spazzyjazzy xD
wow, maggs ur so cute! i LOVE german shepards, and u surely r a beauty.
Oct 4, 2007 123erga
Maggie is so very lucky that you have found her. We had a white German Shepard once and was one of the best dogs ever! Many happy years and memories to you all!
Oct 4, 2007 Jean1018
We are the darndest , lovely, wonderfull looking pup. I am sure you can well train her.
Oct 4, 2007 richard_tn
[b] Maggie is a precious and beautiful baby that will always know how lucky she is to have a warm and loving home. All of my pets have been rescued strays and three shepherds were included in that number. Puppy Kisses from Sampson and Shiloh![/b]
Oct 4, 2007 vegasmom
What a sweet, sweet pup! I havent seen any comments I think should be taken as hurtful, mostly they are in praise of your decision to do the right thing!!

You are the type of people we hope can enter into every dogs life, loving and good. She is a lucky, lucky girl and such a BEAUT!!!

Why are multiple fav. pics. not allowed! ;)
Oct 4, 2007 AussieLuv
Oh my goodness, Maggie - You are absolutely PRECIOUS! Those big loving eyes are so soulful, and that pretty pink tongue makes you look like such a thinker :-) I bet you're thinking about ice cubes :-) Can you come visit? i just want to give you belly rubs and kisses in person! What lucky humans you have - they must be so proud to show you off!!!
Oct 4, 2007 DogMom
Maggie's mom & dad: Thanks you for sharing your precious girl with us. Her pictures make me want to reach through my computer screen and snuggle her. She is perfect and I wish you many happy and fun years with this beautiful girl!!!!!

Good for you for rescuing this sweet little girl.
Oct 4, 2007 Annie
I have to agree that this pup look like a lab entered the pic somewhere along the line. I can see shepherd in the face, but the ear shape and ear set seems off. Regardless, what a beautiful dog.
Oct 4, 2007 anglepie
Bless you for rescueing such a precious baby. All babies are precious and my heart broke when I read about the other dogs and the conditions in which they live. You're an angel for saving Maggie, and I hope you've reported the place where you got her in hopes to perhaps save the others.
Oct 4, 2007 indydunes
Maggie is simply precious, and Maggie's Mom & Dad are to be applauded for saving her life. To think you nursed her back to such great health. I am so happy you posted her delightful photos and shared both your love and her story. Each picture is cuter than the other! Here's my favorite!
Oct 4, 2007 ilovedoggies
Hi Maggie's mom, please tell me where you live so I can book my plane ticket to come and see this cute baby.....

Such a cute and a happy face.... If I can, I will send a pack of dog biscuits to her every day....

Snuggles....
Oct 4, 2007 Puppylove13
What a beautiful puppy and how lucky she is that you found her. It breaks my heart to think of puppies in that condition. She is a true joy and you are lucky to have her, also. Hugs & kisses and belly rubs.....love the ears!!
Oct 5, 2007 jenbeagle
Maggie is just adorable!!! One of our dogs is a cutie we adopted from the local pound and the vet suspects she has a little German Shepard and a little lab in her and her ears look just like your little Maggie's. I love her ears and I wouldn't change them at all. Cute, cute, cute!!!!
Oct 5, 2007 zaussie
This sweetie pie and his story has MADE MY DAY!!!! How wonderful!!
Oct 5, 2007 Mummm
Maggie is beautiful! It's wonderful that you rescued her. It makes me sick that people would treat their animals so badly!
I LOVE THIS DOG!!! Absolutely gorgeous!!
Oct 5, 2007 marleysmom
Oh my goodness, Maggie is adorable! I'm so glad you saved her from that place as I'm sure she'll never forget her heroes either. So glad she's doing so well. Many happy, healthy years!

such a pretty girl

I hope you turned the people you got her from in to the proper authorities! Maggie is one lucky little girl, and you are wonderful people!
Oct 5, 2007 pugswill
What a beautiful dog. I never saw a White Shepherd before. This picture amply shows how happy she is to be living with you. Best wishes for many years together
Oct 5, 2007 Rena1955
Maggie is soooooo sweet. I'm so glad she was rescued. I wish you many happy years with her. Give her a belly rub for me.
Oct 5, 2007 LabLuver16
OMG this picture is just TOO CUTE! I love little exhausted puppies!!!! Thank you for saving this beautiful puppy. She, i am sure, will repay you many times over.
Oct 5, 2007 LabLuver16
I have to add that the tongue and the hugging of the toy are what make this picture so adorable! I love it!
Oct 5, 2007 acmebiatch
Maggie is B-U-T-full!!! She's definitely a GSD, guys. feet too small, head wrong shape, wrong eyes, wrong brows and way to curvy back legs for a lab. Either way she will be a bundle of enjoyment. God put a special hole in hell for losers who abuse helpless ones like pups and kids. They'll get theirs just as you will certainly get the goodness coming to you from your new fur angel. Many, many happy years together - you should set her up a website for future pics. would love to see em! we were raised with GSD's and I miss them. but I wouldn't trade my GSD-black lab Shelby or my Sib Husky Thor for the whole world.
Oct 5, 2007 jowaldo
Maggie is a purty gal and obviously content......just look at her sleeping and huggin her 'baby'!!! What a sweetheart!
Oct 5, 2007 j000wxe
You BOTH are blessed! I had a white German Shephard growing up. Maggie makes me miss him. : (
Oct 5, 2007 piobaire
What a sweetie pie Maggie is! 1000 biscuits to her.
Oct 5, 2007 Phoenix
Life is good! I'm so glad you adopted her and took her out of that situation. She's a beautiful baby!
Oct 5, 2007 pupcake
Not that it matters, but that is SURELY not a German Shepherd. It's ears, face, everything...it's obviously some sort of Lab cross or something. I own a white GS myself, and I can tell that this isn't one.

That being said, Maggie is very cute and it's great that you rescued her. Best of luck with your new puppy :]
Oct 5, 2007 MissManda
She's precious. Bless you for saving her, but do report those folks to the ASPCA. No dog should have to go through that.
Oct 5, 2007 diffuse
She's adorable! I am glad she has a good home w/you. But please do report the "breeder", because otherwise you've just given the "breeder" more money to keep raising dogs in atrocious conditions, without doing anything to stop it.
Oct 5, 2007 CBinID
Those dark eyes with that white fur are fabulous. I don't care if your ears are up or down or whirling around like pinwheels, they look silky soft and infinitely rubbable.

And pink is so your color!

What a precious baby!!!!!!!!! :-) who could ever resist such a face?
Oct 5, 2007 Pupstermum
[b]What a precious baby! What a snuggle-bunny! Just want to bury your face in that beautiful fur!

To Maggie's Mom: I'm so sorry you found critical remarks. I actually am not seeing them, so perhaps they were deleted. I'm seeing nothing but kudos and applause, but it's hard not to be a little sensitive when it's about our "kids".[/b]
Oct 5, 2007 tambore
Maggie............ I can sure can see improvement in you and know your life will be a happy one because of Mom and Dad. You show all of us what you're really made of in addition to be gorgeous, of course. Here's a big kiss from me! Feel it?
Oct 6, 2007 tazjt
She does have the look of a lab - probably has an ancestor who is a lab! She's absolutely gorgeous! How lucky you all are!
Oct 6, 2007 fro01
hello gorgeous
Oct 6, 2007 MaisysMom
Miss Maggie says "thanks mom and dad for telling me that I won't have to wear one of those silly Halloween costumes:)", AND I think my suggestion to have beef flavored ice cube treats just might be coming true! I'm a very happy girl, know that I am beautiful and frankly to those of you who question my heritage and think that it matters... "I don't give a paw"....now.... what were my plans for the day.... chasing the ferret?
Oct 6, 2007 thetopazsmurf
Maggie, You are Beautiful!!!!Thx So much For giving her a happy home..Sometimes we wish we could save um all from bad situations..Thanks for saving her..xoxo

Oh My Gosh! She is adorable.
Oct 7, 2007 Cary
Hi, Miss Maggie. You are one cute puppy. You remind me of my Uncle Fred's White German Shepherd, King. (So named because he had "lemon points" on his ears and muzzle.) This color of the GSD has been around a while, since I am a rickety old girl and Uncle Fred got King when I was about 12. Maggie, You are too cute and look very sharp..Stay happy, enjoy your new home. Mom and Dad, thank you for giving this rickety old person a good day, and enjoy your precious little girl.
Oct 8, 2007 tucker8
i just love white german shepherds! and this one is so cute! looks like a sweet heart!!!
Oct 8, 2007 Twiggabelle
This dog is absolutely adorable!! My friend has 2 adult White GS, and they are wonderful dogs!! His dogs also eat laying down, and i've noticed that not all dog breeds do this so maybe it's unique to white gs or gs in general? Anyway, You'll find out through the years just how special Maggie is!! I'm glad you rescued her from that horrible situation!! And I can def. tell she's a white germ. shepd. because of the way her ears look in the main pic. My friend's GS, Artie, has ears that look like that as well!

she's a beauty, but she looks more like a lab than a shepherd!
Nov 20, 2007 OmegaWolf747
So pretty! I'm glad you rescued her. She does look more like a lab than a shep, but maybe that will change as she grows.

hello, I also rescued a wgsd who was obviosly mixed with a yellow lab. As a pup she looked exactly like yours & her ears never did go up, having the lab outweigh the wgsd. it's been since november, have the ears gone up yet? our dog "beary" is the absolute best dog we've ever had. she was crate trained, like monks of new skete, and she is sooo awesome & beautiful. all the best -pukalani7

she relly cute
Jul 27, 2008 doggcat
SHE'S BEAUTIFULL!!! SHE LOOKS LIKE A LAB TO ME,BUT THERE ARE NO WHITE LABS THAT I'VE HEARD OF BEFORE. MAYBE SHE'S JUST SPECIAL HUH? I HAVE A 2 YEAR OLD CHOCLATE LAB WHO LOOKED JUST LIKE THAT WHEN HE WAS A PUPPY.WHATEVER THE BREED ALL DOGS ARE GREAT!!!
May 13, 2009 eric4got
how old is maggie because she looks old enough that her ears would be up already? I also have a German Shepherd and his ears went up when he was about 3-4 months
Oct 6, 2009 little red
Maggie looks like a real angel. RE: the ears.....We have had 3 White GSDs and one Black GSD. The white ones got their ears up (and sometimes down again, then back up) anytime between 8 weeks and 3 months. Our beautiful black GSD has always been mistaken for a black lab because she had one ear that was floppy until the age of 9. There is no doubt in my mind that Maggie is 100%GSD, the ears do not fool me. And she is beautiful and thanks so much for saving this sweetheart. I hope you enjoy a long life together.
Nov 30, 2009 smegol9
I just happened to come across this page and read this story....I also have a White German Shepherd his name is Kato and he's 4 months old. I got him from a bad home too...he had fleas and ringworm really bad. He looks exactly like Maggie in this picture. He sounds a lot like her too, terrorizing the cat, chewing on everything and chasing ice on the kitchen floor. It cracked me up too see this. But I think its really cool you rescued Maggie when I saw Kato and where he was living I could of never turned my back on him. All my dogs have been rescued from the Humane Society or local pound.
Jan 29, 2010 Sladesmaid
Magggggggiiieee!!! Such a pretty little girl! :) I am very glad she has loving humans to share her life with! WGSD's are an amazing breed apart, I have had four, Max IV is also crazy about icecubes ("cubie-doos" we call them) when he was her age anything that made alot of noise on the kitchen floor was his thing, lol. Lots of doggie kisses to Maggie from me & Max & Boobies !!
