  • 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.

Clyde 8's Story . . .

Original:  “He’s very sweet and listens well, even when asked to stop digging.”

Clyde was in two different Pennsylvania shelters after his family found an untrained puppy too much to handle.  His second shelter recognized the potential in this sweet boy and contacted MAESSR to find him a forever home.
Clyde is adjusting very well in his foster home and has made fast friends with his new buddies. He was a good boy at the vet and did well with his recent neutering.
He’s very sweet and listens well, even when asked to stop digging.
Good times are ahead for this young man as MAESSR only places puppies in homes that are committed to training and bonding with the pup in obedience classes. Puppies require a lot of care, attention, and patience, and they do chew on things (and dig). The decision to get a puppy and raise it to be a healthy, happy, and well-adjusted dog is a serious commitment. To reinforce this commitment, MAESSR requires all adopters of dogs one year old and younger to enroll their puppy in obedience classes within 60 days of adoption.  So, handsome Clyde will continue to be taught to listen, stop digging, and learn a host of other commands that will help him become the best Springer that he can be.
