  •  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

Scooter 4's Story . . .

Original:  “He is a young 9 ½, plays fetch, and loves being outside.”

Scooter’s owner died unexpectedly, leaving him alone when a relative took the other dog and Scooter was relegated to the garage in his Pennsylvania home. The owner’s son said he was a bird dog and went for a run every day.

This handsome fella is housetrained and sleeps through the night.  He signals his need to go out with just a little whining.  Scooter’s foster mom does not know if he is crate trained as he is well mannered and has free rein of the house when she is not home.  He might jump on the couch to be with his person but sleeps on a dog bed.   He has not counter-surfed or chewed anything nor have there been any food issues or guarding.  He knows “sit” and “stay.” 

Scooter is great in the car and fine on a leash.  While he will bark at strangers, he warms up quickly.   His foster mom has groomed him with clippers without a problem but he is a little wary when she touches his feet.  He’s fine with her checking his ears.

The new boy in town is a big softy.  He would love a fenced yard but would probably be okay off leash. He is a young 9 ½, plays fetch, and loves being outside.  He would probably like a more low-key environment where someone is home a lot with him.
