Moose is a endearing a black and tan Rottweiler crossbreed who is only about three years old who came to us in August in good condition but very frightened. We are looking for a understanding, steady and experienced home for this furry fellow who needs someone to hold his paw as he venture back into the world and to help him to become as confident as he is handsome. When Moose arrived at our centre, he was very nervous and struggled to trust people but with time, patience and treat-based training, he has been growing in confidence and he is now ready to find his forever home. His new owner needs to be patient and understanding as Moose is still cautious about new things and new people. He would prefer a quieter home, with someone who is at home a lot where he can gradually settle into a steady routine at his own pace. We would also like Moose’s new family to get to know him for a while at the centre before taking him home to make the transition a little easier for him. To meet Moose is to love him and there is something very appealing about him.
Moose needs an experienced home with owners who have worked with dogs that lack confidence before. He would like somewhere that can offer him a clear routine and familiar faces. If his new home has children, we would advise mature, older teenagers. We are also looking for a home for him where he will not be left for long periods as he bonds closely to people he knows and trusts. Moose has previously lived with other dogs but at present we believe that he is better suited as an only pet. He loves his squeaky toys, a good groom and a nice autumnal walk. Moose will need a minimum of two lots of thirty minute walks a day.Â Moose has a mild hip problem called dysplasia but it does not currently require any treatment and this handsome hound has no other known health problems. To meet Moose is to love him and we’d like to find him a jolly good and permanent home.
