  • 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.

Rebecca's Story . . .
___________________________________________________________________________________________________

Original: “This poor little girl is going to be in the MAESSR foster program for a while as she learns to live with and love people.”

Rebecca came from a North Carolina family that tried so hard to do the right thing, but they did not have the training skills necessary to bring this pretty little dog to the point where she could function in a normal household.  MAESSR gives this family credit for trying as hard as they did.
 
Terrified of everything except other dogs, Rebecca hides from everything and  shuns all human contact.  This poor little girl is going to be in the MAESSR foster program for a while as she learns to live with and love people.

Watch for updates on this pretty Springer girl as she learns to trust people.
