  • 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.

    Libbie 6's Story . . . 
    ___________________________________________________________________________________________________
     
    Original:  “Libbie LOVES attention.  The more attention you give her the more she craves and who wouldn’t want to give this lovely girl all the cuddles she requires!”

    Lovely Libbie came to MAESSR when her Virginia family was moving and could no longer keep her.  The family made the difficult decision to place her with MAESSR.
     
    Libbie LOVES attention.  The more attention you give her the more she craves and who wouldn’t want to give this lovely girl all the cuddles she requires!  She has a look in her eyes that says, "Please take me home and I will love you forever.”  With very little practice, Libbie will make a great walking companion;  however, she occasionally pulls.  Riding in cars is not a problem and settles in nicely, finding a comfy spot and curling up for the trip.
     
    Obviously not socialized to a normal busy household, Libbie is a little nervous of new sounds and items.  Once she realizes everything is ok and there is nothing to be worried about, she quickly settles back down.  Trying new things has lead to Libbie trying to counter-surf in her foster home, not actually finding anything during her attempts.  Her foster mom is working on this behavior and believes this behavior will be easily managed.  Libbie is crate trained and has held her bladder while in her foster home.
     
    This gorgeous girl needs a family that will expose her to more of the world and new experiences.  They must also be willing to show the Lovely Libbie LOTS of love.  She in turn will gladly return of that love 10 times over and then some!
