  • 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.

    Maxipoo's Story . . .

    Update 01/15/2018:  “He knew he was loved.“
    This angel passed to the Bridge when veterinary measures could no longer keep him pain-free.  To his passing day, Maxipoo was treasured by his foster parents, shared in daily life and was cared for as one of their own.  He knew he was loved.
    If only for a short time, Maxipoo, we’re glad you were a MAESSR boy.

    Original:  “He was an angel at the vet and he loved everyone he met there.”

    MAESSR was contacted by another rescue group in Pennsylvania to see if we could help a sweet senior boy with potential serious health issues. Of course, the immediate answer was YES!!
    Maxipoo is a super sweet boy that unfortunately has some serious medical problems. He has advanced prostate cancer and significant dental disease, especially of his upper canines. He was an angel at the vet and he loved everyone he met there.
    Because Maxipoo is extremely well-behaved and totally housetrained, he has full run of his foster home. At night he sleeps in a dog bed in his foster parents’ bedroom. He walks well on a leash and is a good passenger in the car, but will bark when he is anxious.
    Such a gentle and sweet soul, Maxipoo doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. His foster family will keep him comfortable and loved until it is time for him to go the Rainbow Bridge. Keep this wonderful boy in your thoughts and prayers.
