  • 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.

Wesley 3's Story . . .
___________________________________________________________________________________________________

Original: 
“ Unfortunately, Wesley was not in the best of health himself, and, after just six short weeks in foster care, this loving senior left for the Rainbow Bridge.”
 
Wesley became a MAESSR boy when his Virginia owner’s health declined; this 11 year old was lucky enough to come to a built-in family of foster and resident dogs of all shapes and sizes.  Unfortunately, Wesley was not in the best of health himself, and, after just six short weeks in foster care, this loving senior left for the Rainbow Bridge.
 
How fortunate for owners in need that MAESSR is available, and how fortunate for gentle guys like Wesley that MAESSR foster homes are available to ease their transition and give them comfort in their final days.
 
May we all continue to help each other.
