  • 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.

    Coco 18's Story . . .
    ___________________________________________________________________________________________________

    Original: 
    “There will be no chasing the Easter Bunny or any other critters; this girl is a lover not a hunter.”

    This little Springer cousin came into MAESSR’s care when her Pennsylvania owner had to go into assisted living and there was no one else to care for her.  Coco has been well cared for in her life time and is very well adjusted. Moving around and traveling to finally get to her foster home was no problem for this sweet girl.

    With excellent house manners, Coco will let her foster mom know when she needs to go out and listens intently to everything she is told. A better little girl cannot be found!  She will try to beg but will go away as soon as she is told.  She sleeps anywhere she desires, but in bed with someone is best!  When her foster mom is out of the house, Coco has free run of the house and there have been no problems with this arrangement.  Trying to keep her off the furniture is a futile task according to her foster mom!

    Go for walk, ride in car, or just snuggle on the sofa --- it’s all good with her. Coco is great on leash walks and responds to the commands “sit,” “stay,” “come,” and “go lie down.”  She will pick up a toy every now and then. So once settled in a home for a while, her foster mom feels she will play.  There will be no chasing the Easter Bunny or any other critters; this girl is a lover not a hunter.

    Inquire quickly about Coco since this little one will be in a permanent home very, very soon.  Who could resist that face?!
