  • 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.

    Toby 16's Story . . . 
    __________________________________________________________________
     
    Original: “Toby's sweet Springer temperament was not damaged, though, as he was full of smiles and tail wags for his foster parents as they cleaned him up.”

    When MAESSR got an urgent call for help from the staff of a Pennsylvania shelter, volunteers quickly leapt to action to pull a sweet male Springer who was overwhelmed at the shelter.

    When Toby arrived in his MAESSR foster home, it was clear from his matted and dirty coat that he had been neglected for some time.  His sweet Springer temperament was not damaged, though, as he was full of smiles and tail wags for his foster parents as they cleaned him up.

    It soon became apparent that sweet Toby had some serious medical conditions.  He started having so many seizures that the foster family and their vet could not get them under control.  Rather than having him suffer, they had to send him to the Bridge….  May you enjoy your restored health as you play there, Toby.  We wish we could have helped you more.
