  •  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

Princess 7's Story . . .

Original:  “She really enjoys her walks but she LOVES to play fetch!”

Princess was relinquished to a Virginia shelter because she bit one of the owner’s children.  Princess had been asleep and was having a bad dream.  The child came over to comfort her and got down near the dog’s face.  Princess startled awake and bit the child in the face.  Knowing that this was a most unfortunate but avoidable incident, the shelter was happy to work with MAESSR in finding a new home for this Springer girl.  


Princess is being fostered by one of MAESSR’s most experienced Springer people.  Her foster mom has been testing Princess’ temperament and has not found any issues.  Note that MAESSR will NOT place her in a home with children.  


Housetrained and crate trained, Princess sleeps on a dog bed in her foster parents’ bedroom.  Although her house manners are quite good, she would love to counter-surf, but so far she has been too short to get anything.


Princess pulls a little on the leash when starting out, but then settles in to walk well.  She really enjoys her walks but she LOVES to play fetch!  She will fetch anything her person will throw and will keep retrieving as long as her person’s throwing arm will last.  She is a lot like the Energizer Bunny, but she does fall asleep early because she is so tired.


This little lady will melt your heart with her sweetness, too.  If you have a child-free home and have a good throwing arm, consider bringing sweet, active Princess into your life.
