  • 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.

Toby 18's Story . . .

Original: “Outside, typical Springer, he enjoys chasing birds and rabbits, but thinks thunderstorms are to be avoided!”

Toby and Emma lived with a family in South Carolina.  But, when the pair started having problems with the other dogs, the family decided to rehome both of them.
Toby is crate trained and housetrained, and, while he will try to counter-surf occasionally, he has not been successful.  He is friendly with new people who come into the house but might lightly jump on them.
This youngster knows “sit” and “down” and likes squeaky balls and hanging out on the back of the couch.  Outside, typical Springer, he enjoys chasing birds and rabbits, but thinks thunderstorms are to be avoided!
Toby walks well on a leash and rides well in the car.  He was really good at his vet and groomer appointments.
Mr. T. is a sweet little guy who just wants to be loved; he is fun and loves to play.  With cooler weather coming, Toby will enjoy being outside with his new family and running through the leaves.  Would you like him to come and help you rake?
