  • Adopted Murdock in December 2006 when he was 10 Mos old. He has been the best boy ever! We just learned he has Lymphoma & are devasted. I can't imagine life without him & am hoping he responds well to treatment and lives many more months!!

  • 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.

    Sully's Story . . .
    Original: “Sully is just a typical Springer puppy with too much energy!!”

    Sully came to MAESSR because of his high energy and love of life.  His previous North Carolina owner was just not equipped to handle this boy.  Sully had not shown any meanness…he just wanted to have FUN!
    This love of a puppy is crate trained, housetrained and rides well in a car.  He does pull on his leash when he starts walking; he loves to play with the other dogs in his foster home.  Sully is just a typical Springer puppy with too much energy!!
    Not just puppy, puppy, puppy, but Springer, Springer, Springer puppy!!!   MAESSR only places puppies in homes that are committed to training and bonding with the pup in obedience classes. Puppies require a lot of care, attention, and patience, and they do chew on things! The decision to get a puppy and raise it to be a healthy, happy, and well-adjusted dog is a serious commitment. To reinforce this commitment, MAESSR requires all adopters of dogs under 1 year old to enroll their puppy in obedience classes within 60 days of adoption and will be requiring two series of obedience classes for Sully.
    This bundle of fur and energy will be going to his forever home in time to be an extra package in Santa’s sleigh!!
