  •  Three years ago, we made the best decision in deciding to adopt another ESS.  Zoey then came to us and is the BEST dog ever.  She is not only beautiful but so well behaved and is loved by everyone. We can't thank MAESSR and Debbie enough for giving us Zoey.   Judy Minnick, NJ

Ally's Story . . .

Original:  “She is learning what toys are and especially likes chew bones."

Ally came to MAESSR when she was relinquished by her breeder.  She had been living in a kennel situation, but quickly adapted to living in a home.  She will need a patient and understanding owner as she continues to broaden her horizons to the rest of the world.

She is crate trained and has not had any accidents in her foster home.  

This beautiful Golden is getting much more comfortable in her foster home.  She is learning what toys are and especially likes chew bones.  She stole a magazine off the table last week and shredded it everywhere—guard your reading material around this girl!

Ally walks well on the leash although she puts on the brakes if frightened.  She did extremely well at the vet’s and had fun loving on everyone.  She also does well in the car after being helped in—learning the fun of car rides is part of her new experiences, and she still does not understand the whole concept.

Miss A. has an extremely sweet and loving personality.  With a little work and patience, this girl is going to shine and is looking forward to spending spring and summer and forever with her new family.
