  •  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

Buddy 44's Story . . .
___________________________________________________________________________________________________



Update 08/19/2021:  "Buddy continues to 'run the show' in his foster home.  He is definitely used to being an only dog and having his own way!"

Buddy continues to “run the show” in his foster home.  He is definitely used to being an only dog and having his own way!

He also continues to need his digestion supplement to control the consistency of his stools.  He is unable to maintain his weight in spite of a good appetite and normal lab results and will be seeing the vet to determine if he has a deficiency that prevents him from gaining the needed pounds.

Keep an eye out for Buddy’s progress as MAESSR helps this Springer wannabe regain his weight and health.

Original: “Despite his senior status, Buddy’s foster mom says that he is full of energy and spunk and likes affection from people.”

Buddy the Boston terrier is MAESSR’s honorary Springer, a true one-eyed wonder!  He came to MAESSR because his Pennsylvania owner fell ill and entered hospice care, leaving no one to care for him.  Buddy just turned 9 years old at the beginning of May, weighing in at about 23 pounds.  Despite his senior status, Buddy’s foster mom says that he is full of energy and spunk and likes affection from adults.

Buddy is on a supplement for a digestive issue, which seems to come and go, and he has a hard time gaining weight, despite his big appetite.   This condition will need ongoing monitoring. When he has a digestive bout, he has watery stools.

Although Buddy likes people, his foster mom thinks he would do best as an only dog and without any children in his new household.   As an overly indulged only child with his previous owner, he likes to run the show, so he will need a strong person to guide him.  He enjoys his space and will let other dogs and cats know if they have gotten too close to something he views as his.  Hey, Buddy’s a terrier, a scrappy little guy! 

Buddy prefers to be inside, barking at anyone or anything that passes while he is on guard.  His bark is low and muffled, so his foster mom says it really isn’t bothersome.  Although he likes being indoors, Buddy does enjoy going for walks and meeting and greeting people. 

If you like quirky senior dogs, Buddy may be the guy for you!
