  • Adopted Murdock in December 2006 when he was 10 Mos old. He has been the best boy ever! We just learned he has Lymphoma & are devasted. I can't imagine life without him & am hoping he responds well to treatment and lives many more months!!

  • I lost my best friend, Evie, a year ago September. I adopted her in 2006, she was 2 years old. That sweet girl was the love of my life and I miss her dearly. Thank you MAESSR for bringing that beautiful dog into my life.

    Astella's Story . . .
    ___________________________________________________________________________________________________

    Original:  “Although very, very clingy to her foster dad, Astella still enjoys cuddling with her foster mom, the two young boys in the house, and her canine foster brother…as long as they aren’t rough-housing too much!”
     
    Astella was found as a stray wandering in Maryland when she was brought to a local shelter. MAESSR was contacted to send this young girl on to a better life.  She has quickly settled into her foster home which includes a resident male Springer.
     
    Astella’s foster parents have found her to be a loving, sweet, and gentle young lass. So far she has only caused a few little problems like rooting through the trash and carrying around her foster family’s shoes…although she does drop them when asked politely to do so. This smart girl will quickly learn the behaviors required of polite Springers.  She already knows the command “sit,” will give a paw if there is a cookie involved, and generally is a very nice houseguest.

    At her vet appointment it was discovered that Astella has an ear infection and her bloodwork was Lyme positive. She is receiving treatment for both and, when the Lyme medication is completed, she will be scheduled to be spayed.
     
    It won’t be long before this sweet young girl will soon be ready for her new home. Wouldn’t you like her to join yours?
