    Luther's Story . . .
    ___________________________________________________________________________________________________

    Original: “This sweet boy is loved and living a comfortable life in his foster home. He has become a permanent MAESSR foster so that he will never have to find another home.”
     
    Poor Luther was about to lose his second home. His original owner was elderly and when her health took a turn for the worse, she was unable to care for him. He was then taken in by a family in Pennsylvania, but divorce caused them to find Luther yet another home. MAESSR found out about this sweet senior boy and found him a wonderful foster home.
     
    A sleepy old man, Luther keeps to himself most of the time, with the occasional nose nudge to indicate he’d like his ears scratched. He doesn’t ask for many comforts and loves to lie on blankets or thin pillows for his naps. He’s a very laid-back dog, but he lets his people know when someone new arrives at the house. He gets excited to meet new people; once he’s said hello, he’s back to his cozy spot to relax.
     
    Luther does well with the other dogs in his foster home although he’s not very active. He walks well on a leash and is housetrained. Luther has a cyclical grooming schedule. He is groomed short once in the early summer and then his hair is allowed to grow out in order to keep him warm in the colder months.
     
    Luther has access to his food all day until the evening. He can only eat dry food as any moist or wet food causes diarrhea. Despite eating like a champ, Luther is incredibly thin. He takes medication to control seizures. This sweet boy is loved and living a comfortable life in his foster home. He has become a permanent MAESSR foster so that he will never have to find another home.
