Blake

Blake

Blake is a young, energetic guy who was found as a stray in Queens, NY. We discovered in foster that our dear Blake was quite fearful -- of new sounds, new people, new situations. He needed a very quiet and loving place to feel safe.  MMR found him the right home in Smithtown, NY where he would have the attention and understanding he needs to become a happy boy. Blake has found his nirvana -- love, understanding and a backyard where he can chase squirrels to his heart's content.

 

Jasper

Jasper

Jasper was a young boy, less than a year old, when MMR got the call from his owners that they needed to give him up. Their lives were in disarray, so they kept this sweet boy in exile in their garage because they didn't have the time or energy to deal with him. We were delighted to take in Jasper who was so loving and sweet, but still a puppy who required lots of attention and some guidance from a committed owner. Susan, an MMR member (and adopter of Nina) became his adopter after a temporary foster assignment became a forever-after home. She calls him her "rascal" and loves all his puppy antics. Although both are now enrolled in a puppy obedience class. But, of course, Susan is loving it.

 

Jazz

jazz

This incredible girl came to us from the Manhattan CACC shelter on the day we participated in the Broadway Barks event. Everyone was enthralled with this tiny, but severely matted lady. Her foster Mom, Lexy, was immediately smitten. She had not intended to adopt her very first foster, but it was meant to be. Lexy kept us posted on Jazz's progress which changed week-to-week. Here is one of the many, wonderful updates (after Jazz's dental procedure)

"It's almost like she just woke up from a long and painful sleep, now she is barking and running and even playing. She chases me around to stop and play." And this is a 7 year old girl who had been neglected for many years! Jazz is so happy now -- and so is Lexy.

June

june

June came to us from the Brooklyn CACC who trusted us to find her the very best home. This is a beautiful, well-adjusted, six year old girl, despite her abandonment in a shelter. We could only surmise that she must have had a caring human in her life or she is one of those incredible creatures who only senses the best in everyone and everything. When we picked her up, we knew we had a gem. MMR found this loving girl a home with Jennifer in Queens, who understands and appreciates how lucky they are to have found each other.

 

Maggie

maggie

Maggie came to us as an owner-surrender from a home with two human children aged one and three. As we have seen again and again, Maltese do not do well with such young children and Maggie was no exception. She had all sorts of physical reactions to stress in the home. Luckily, Maggie was taken into foster by Sam & Des (the adopters of MMR's senior ladies, Chloe & Gloria).

Maggie immediately fell into place fitting in well with the six other dogs and two cats! Maggie got progressively better at Sam and Des's. When she first arrived, Maggie had ear infections, eye infections, horrible teeth (11 of which were later extracted), and fleas! A little time and a lot of love brought Maggie's true personality out. She went from hiding under the furniture to taking over the couch! Even though her owners believed she was about 12, the vet believes Maggie is closer to 14 or 15. Either way, she's found her forever home with Sam, Des, and the gang.

 

Muffin

Muffin

Dear Muffin came to MMR from the Patterson, NJ shelter. Muffin is elderly, but so incredibly sweet. We had a special adopter family -- Linda & Frank -- who were looking for another senior Malt to love after their wonderful experience in adopting Fogarty from MMR last year. Muffin, despite her recent bad luck with a family who dumped her, was incredibly lucky with her new home. And she represented MMR at the Broadway Barks event, showing all the joys of a beautiful senior girl.

 

Murphy

Murphy

Murphy was found tied to a post in Central Park by a Good Samaritan. After several hours, no one returned to retrieve him, so this dear person took him home. Posters and notices were sent out throughout the neighborhood, but the owner never came forward. Murphy had been abandoned, but was fortunate to have been found by a caring family who have kept him safe.

Unfortunately, this family lived in a "no pets" building and did not have the resources to care for a pet. They have asked MMR to take Murphy into foster and find him the best home. When the MMR representative when to meet Murphy, she was delighted to meet a wonderful dog who loved all other beings -- canine, feline and human -- although nearly blind with advance cataracts. MMR found the perfect home with Sheryl who was thrilled to have an unusually sweet, affable boy as Murphy.

 

Nero

Nero

Nero is a dear boy whose 81 year old owner could no longer keep him. He was fostered by a special "Guardian Angels" - Carole & Ed - for MMR in NJ. Nero was neutered, but needed dental work and surgery for luxating patella, both of which were covered by MMR. Carol & Ed, and their "Tonka", could not resist Nero's charms and have welcomed him into their home as a permanent member. Hurray for Nero!
