  • 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.

    Do you have an impossible dog?

    You know the kind of dog we re talking about don t you? The kind of dog that will do what you want him to do when pigs fly. One of those never-eager-to-please types that runs the other way when you say Come! Who seems to know exactly what you want him or her to do, then does just the opposite. The kind of dog for whom standard training methods whether positive or punishment-based don t seem to work. Call them stubborn, call them independent, call them challenging whatever you call them don t give up!
    You may not know it but there are certain breeds that were developed to work independently. Those breeds, and mixes, include Hounds, Terriers, Northern Breeds, and Livestock Guardian dogs. If you have a Pigs Fly kind of dog you need to work with her independent nature not against it to get good manners and even high level performance.
