  • 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.

Senior and Special Needs Dogs

   What are "Senior" and "Special Needs" Dogs?

Senior Dogs:  Dogs over 9 years old are considered senior dogs, although a great number of them still have more energy than their owners. It all depends on the dog, some may have slowed down, even gotten a little grey in their beautiful coat or have some minor health issues requiring medication daily, however, they still have a lot of love and kisses to give a loving family. The big benefit to a "senior" dog is no training, good house manners and they already have life experience.

Special Needs: These dogs may require a special home, such as few or no stairs, no children and etc. Some of these may be shy or unsocialized dogs who have grown enough to move on to a dog-savvy and experienced forever home willing to help them continue to develop. It could also be a dog with a medical issue that needs to be controlled on a daily basis, which does not prevent the dog from living a normal active life.
