  • We got Boone from MAESSR when he was 6 years old. He was not dog-friendly and not good with young children, which presented some problems for us.  However, he loved us unconditionally,and he deserved the same from us. We introduced him to swimming.  He was hesitant at first, but he quickly became a water dog.  He loved car rides and just being with his people. We lost Boone very suddenly and unexpectedly on Sept. 11,2018 due to a bleeding tumor in his spleen. It was one month shy of his 13th birthday. He was great up until that last morning.There is a huge hole in our hearts that will never be filled. Even if we get another dog, there will never be another Boone.

Betty the Beagle's Story . . .

“Betty is a very sweet, quiet little girl who loves to cuddle.”

Somewhere around three years of age, Betty the Beagle looked around and decided her living condition in Virginia did not suit her. So after listening to the doggie underground, she promptly hit the road and TURNED herself in to MAESSR at the Springerfarm. Having listened to the gossip, she just knew this was the place that could help her find just what she was looking for in a home.

Betty is a very sweet, quiet little girl who loves to cuddle.  She gets along with everyone in her foster family, including the other dogs and even the cats.  Housetrained and crate trained, Betty is a good house guest who thinks her foster home is a very nice place to live.  It even has a doggie door so she can go in and out as she desires.  When it is closed, she lets her foster family know that she needs a trip outside.

Always ready for a walk, Betty enjoys going around the family farm with her foster mom who is also helping her learn leash manners.  Although Betty arrived knowing no commands, she is learning quickly.

Car rides are pleasant with Betty who just settles in and goes to sleep.  Bath time is not a problem with this little girl and she doesn’t mind having her ears cleaned, either.  This former stray has not needed her nails clipped yet, but hopefully will be cooperative with that grooming task too.

In very good health, Betty will soon be ready for adoption after she is spayed.  How about bringing this sweet Springer wanna be into your loving family?
