  • 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.

    Bailey 24's Story . . .
    ___________________________________________________________________________________________________
     
    Original: “Bailey will put his head in visitors’ laps and give them his ‘poor me’ look that will melt anyone’s heart.”

    Bailey came to MAESSR due to changes in his Delaware household that increased his stress levels. It was felt that Bailey would do better in a different home environment.  MAESSR was glad to oblige.
     
    Totally frightened when he first came to his foster home, Bailey was scared of the other dogs and of people.   A visit to the vet confirmed that he had a urinary tract infection and the vet recommended he be given anxiety medication.  Bailey has now been on this medication for a few weeks and he is a totally different dog.  Now, he gets along with all the other dogs and he loves when new people come to visit. He will put his head in their lap and give them his "poor me" look that will melt anyone’s heart.
     
    Bailey has wonderful house manners.  He is totally housetrained and crate trained and he does not counter-surf.  He likes to ride in the car and is an excellent passenger.  Although he does pull on the leash, he is improving.
     
    Bailey is looking for a loving home with someone to spend time with him.  Is it you?
