  •  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

Britten's Story . . .

Original: “Britten loves to snuggle with her sibling, play with toys, eat, and spend time outdoors.”

As a Springer breeder in Virginia was dying, she asked that her dogs be placed in MAESSR homes. One of the dogs was pregnant and Britten is one of six puppies born in her litter. The pups stayed with their mom in one foster home until they were weaned.  Then, they were divided in groups of two and sent to new foster homes.

Britten came to her foster home with her sibling Artemisia. Together, they immediately took to the resident dogs in the house. They follow their every move, learning how to behave by following their lead. Britten is crate trained and is doing very well with housetraining.   

Britten loves to snuggle with her sibling, play with toys, eat, and spend time outdoors. She is a typical active puppy. She loves to wrestle with her sibling, follow the resident dogs around the kitchen, and play with a tug-toy with her littermate. The resident dogs reprimand Britten when she gets too wound up.

The two pups have taken a few car rides and are noisy little pups during the trip, but that will change as they go out for more rides. When they took their first trip to the vet, everyone fell madly in love. How couldn’t they immediately fall in love? Britten received a clean bill of health at her first trip and has gotten all of her puppy vaccinations subsequently according to schedule. 

Potential adopters should note that MAESSR only places puppies in homes that are committed to training and bonding with the puppies in obedience class. Puppies require a lot of care, attention, and patience, and they do chew on things. The decision to get a puppy, and raise it to be a healthy, happy, well-adjusted dog is a serious commitment. To reinforce this commitment, MAESSR requires all adopters of dogs one year and younger to enroll in puppy obedience classes within 60 days of adoption. 

There is nothing more pleasant and rewarding than raising a Springer puppy.  Bring Britten into your life!
