  •  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

Chip 11's Story . . .

Original:  “Chip is a very smart little pup and will be a good pupil since he loves to please and he is very food motivated!”

Chip and his sister Daisey became MAESSR pups when their Maryland owner became ill and had to rehome the Springers in his breeding kennel.


A beautiful pup with wonderful flecking, Chip still has the blue/green eyes of a puppy.  He enjoys rough play with Daisey and will fetch a tennis ball when thrown for him.  Running in the yard is great fun too and he loves to sniff plants and animal scents.  When Chip is not playing, he loves to cuddle.  What a sweetie! 


Chip has really bonded with his foster mom although he is friendly with everyone he meets.  He will be a very loving, loyal and dedicated dog for some lucky person or family. The vet and his staff love Chip and comment on his great personality every time he visits. 


Although Chip is crate trained, his crate is not his favorite place to be. He sleeps quietly at night but will get very active in the morning when he is ready to get up!  House training is still a work in progress.


Although his favorite playmate is his sibling, he has lost his fear of the large resident Plott Hound and is playing with him frequently.   Chip would be fine as an only dog as he loves getting all of the attention, but he would also be fine with another friendly, playful dog.  Chip has been around lots of noisy, active 12 year old girls and has done great.  He also has been around a few small children, but needs to work on not jumping up on them.  He has not met any cats yet.  


Chip is doing pretty well on a leash, but has not been on one too much as he has a large fenced yard to run in.  Potential adopters should note that MAESSR only places puppies in homes that are committed to training and bonding with the pup in obedience classes. 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, and well-adjusted dog is a serious commitment. To reinforce this commitment, MAESSR requires all adopters of dogs one year old and under to enroll their puppy in a series of obedience classes within 60 days of adoption. Chip is a very smart little pup and will be a good pupil since he loves to please and he is very food motivated! 


This sweet puppy will be a wonderful addition to any family!
