  •  Three years ago, we made the best decision in deciding to adopt another ESS.  Zoey then came to us and is the BEST dog ever.  She is not only beautiful but so well behaved and is loved by everyone. We can't thank MAESSR and Debbie enough for giving us Zoey.                                                                                                                                                                                                  Judy Minnick, NJ

Riley Marie's Story . . .
___________________________________________________________________________________________________


Original: “Riley Marie is in good health; it’s just age that’s slowing her down a bit.”

When Riley Marie’s owner in Pennsylvania could no longer care for her and two other Springers, the heartbreaking decision to relinquish them was made.
Her previous owner described Riley as a stubborn, super sweet cuddle bug who loves to give kisses! Riley joined a new pack in her MAESSR foster home and has fit right in. This little lady prefers to have some canine companionship when her foster mom leaves home. It seems that she will bark if she’s home when her foster mom is gone and her special foster buddy isn’t there with her.
Riley Marie is in good health; it’s just age that’s slowing her down a bit. Her back end is a little weak and she experiences some stiffness when getting up after lying down for a bit. She’s taking a supplement to support her joint health.
Riley Marie is great when meeting new people, reportedly good with children, and has a history of chasing after kitties because she thinks it’s a fun game. She might be just fine with a dog-savvy cat.
Her foster mom has discovered that Riley Marie is terrible at taking food from a hand. When given something from a spoon, she clamped down so hard that the spoon bent! Best to lay it on the floor, it seems!
Senior Springers make wonderful companions. Ask about having the sweet girl join you this holiday season!
