  • 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.

Tim Tam's Story . . .

"Run FREE Tim Tam!!! There are lots of birds at the Bridge for you to chase.”

Tim Tam came to MAESSR after she started showing increasing anxiety and aggression at the vet and when visitors came into the home. Her Maryland family was hopeful that MAESSR would be able to help this young girl.
Unfortunately, after her dog-savvy foster family worked with her for three months, the difficult decision was made to let her go to the Bridge. Tim Tam’s anxiety and aggression kept escalating and she had bitten her foster mom. It would not have been safe for her to be placed in another home.
