2-years old

Pet Parents: Leslie and Cory

Moose possesses some of the most endearing traits. These traits include avid and affectionate water baby, creative purveyor of comfort (note vent nearby), and fine paper aficionado.

We love Moose for his remarkable compassion and joie d’ vivre. His whole world is rocked in the most enthusiastic way when he meets new people or dogs. He senses when someone is having a tough time by offering a paw, hug, and/or gentle kisses. He will then remain close to the sufferer until he senses they are better.

Moose has perfected the paw (shake), sit, and stay commands. We are still working on the rollover and down commands!

If interested please fill out our online adoption application form; please make sure you fill in every required field/question or your submission will not go through. Please note that we take time to learn as much as we can about each dog in our care and our bios are our current observations; we are unable to make any guarantees on the future health or temperament of your adopted dog. Most dogs in our care come with unknown pre-rescue history and as such breed and age estimates are an educated guess.
