  •  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

Brutus's Story . . .
___________________________________________________________________________________________________


Original:  “As they interacted with Brutus, they found his behavior and temperament to be too volatile, making Brutus unsuitable for adoption.” 


When a Maryland Springer owner developed serious health issues, he relinquished Brutus to MAESSR. 

Since Brutus hadn’t much socialization in his previous life, he was placed with experienced foster parents who knew how to work with such dogs.  As they interacted with Brutus, they found his behavior and temperament to be too volatile, making Brutus unsuitable for adoption.  Biting incidents confirmed their assessment.

So, Brutus was humanely sent to the Bridge.
