  • 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.

Ringo 4's Story . . .

Original:  “He would be happy to have his chest rubbed 24/7!”

When their Tennessee family divorced and could no longer care for these handsome guys, litter mates, Ringo and George, came into MAESSR’s care.
Ringo is the best little lover Springer in town; he is very mellow and just wants to love, kiss and touch his person all day and night.  He would be happy to have his chest rubbed 24/7!
But, in the meantime, some education in house manners is needed as this new guy on the block loves to counter-surf and, while he is the gentlest soul around, he does like to jump on his folks.  He is housetrained and lets his needs known by jumping on the door.  Ringo is used to being in his crate during the day and at bedtime.  Once his manners improve, his foster mom thinks he’ll do just fine out of the crate.
This guy is adjusting to the northern climate and loves to run all over in the snow—and roll in it.  He is very good walking on his leash and will actually hold the leash in his mouth until his folks are ready to take it from him and go outside.  Dogs are so much faster than humans when it comes to knowing it’s walking time!  Inside, Ringo does destroy soft toys, but is now being given stronger toys that withstand hard play.
What an absolute love and joy this gentle, handsome fellow is.  He will be looking for a furever home that can give him a lot of love and unlimited pets (with a little bit of training thrown in).  Wouldn’t you like to start out the New Year with your very own “Beatle” ?  He would probably do a sing-a-long with you!  Be sure to keep an eye on Ringo’s progress.
