Let me tell you about 'little' man Moose. To start, the only thing little about him is his height. His personality, charm and goofiness are GIANT in comparison. Moose is the perfect mixed breed; smart, persistant, stubborn and handsome as heck. Moose is approximately 3 years old and is very much a puppy and in need of a life full of training. Not only does he need it, but he also LOVES to train!
Currently, Moose lives in a house with his foster mom and furry siblings and he lives a very structured life - one that is necessary for him. Moose works on his crate training daily and is fully house trained. Moose does fairly well on leash and will only pull for the first few minutes but he will bark at other dogs on pack walks if he is not the leader so this is something that we are working on. He does like to go on runs but when there are multiple people on the run, he will try to herd whoever is not holding onto his leash. Moose does have herding breeds in his mix so while these behaviours make sense, they do need to be managed to make sure that he does not get carried away.Moose's favorite thing to do is to play fetch; He would play all day with a few breaks in his pool if he was allowed to!
Currently, Moose works for his meals through training and puzzle games and although he does well with it, he is very smart and it doesn't take him long to figure out that his foster mom is working on getting some of his energy out! Moose does need tougher toys as he will destroy ones that are, in his words, weak. Moose currently knows 'sit', 'down', 'wait', ‘crate’ and 'place', ‘out’, ‘heel’. Moose loves a good snuggle with his foster mom and he also loves getting butt scratches and smacks!
Here's what Moose's foster mom has to say about him:
Moose is a lovely boy who has proven to need quite the special forever family. He has been with me for over a year now and has made leaps and bounds from when he first came into my home. While he has so many redeeming qualities, including his cute face, he needs a family that is going to be able to remind him that he can't get away with absolutely everything. A family with or without another dog, no kids and lots of activity would be his dream home!
Whoever it is that is lucky enough to add Moose to their family will definitely be in for some laughs and so much fun! Moose and I have already had so much fun learning from each other, but he has also gave me a run for my money as he settled in - it's all been worth it!
