  • 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.

Juneau's Story . . .
Original:  He would likely make a good running buddy.  Juneau is bright and athletic; more obedience or agility training would suit him just fine.”
Juneau lived with his family in Maryland but problems developed when he began picking fights with his unneutered half-brother.  When the family’s attempts at re-training Juneau to stop fighting were unsuccessful, MAESSR was contacted.  With heavy hearts, they relinquished Juneau so he could find a forever family that was a better fit for him. 


With a history of barking at other dogs while on leash, and his interactions with female dogs unknown, it wasn’t clear how Juneau would react to his new surroundings.  His foster family is happy to report that he is doing great so far with the 2 year old resident female hound.  The resident male terrier is generally ignored by Juneau.  While he doesn't have food aggression, he is fed separately because he’s a slow eater.  Juneau and the finicky resident Afghan enjoy stealing out of each other’s bowls........the best food being stolen food!  Group grooming sessions have him ducking under his taller dog buddy to get more brushing than she gets.  He doesn't mind having his ears or feet handled. 


This handsome guy is mellow indoors and fully housetrained.  He just goes outside with the pack.  He hasn't needed a crate since his arrival.  Juneau naps on the hall bench at night and is given the run of the house, except for being gated away from the male resident dog, when his foster folks are away.  Juneau knows “sit,” “down,” “roll over,” and “stay.”   There are no bad habits for this well behaved counter-surfing, trash-picking, or separation issues.  Thunderstorms don't faze him.  


A polite boy who loves walks, Juneau often trots and has good leash manners.  He would likely make a good running buddy.  Juneau is bright and athletic; more obedience or agility training would suit him just fine.  On walks in the neighborhood and in the park he has been fine with meeting other dogs. 


A fun-loving pup, Juneau enjoys chasing balloons and bubbles.  His foster folks have photos of him jumping through hoops!   In his new home, he’s just starting to play with small squeaky toys and will occasionally play fetch.  Juneau likes to play keep away with his foster sister.  The two dogs love to goof around, nibbling at each other’s toes and ears with their butts in the air and heads on the ground, all the while making assorted “having fun” noises.


Juneau loves car rides, kicking back instantly and becoming invisible for the entire ride.  While he’ll wade in creeks, he doesn’t seem to be a “must get totally wet” sort of Springer.


Because of his background, Juneau would probably need to go to a home without other male canines.  Otherwise, he’ll make a wonderful member of most families.  Don’t miss out on the chance to add Juneau to your pack!
