Hello humans, my name is Moose and I'm an enthusiastic 3 year old Labrador looking for a loving home. People are the central focus of my being, along with smells and food and toys.
Settling in wasn’t easy for me at first. I’m an owner surrender due to this thing called “increased work demands”, whatever that is. After three weeks in my foster home, I am truly settled in. The resident dogs and I get along great, and we all eat, play and nap together without conflict. They have helped me feel right at home here in my new environment! I sleep in my crate, which I enter readily and then sleep through the night. I go in the crate when left alone as I’m a ‘surfer dude’ now and then.
My foster parents have noticed I get a bit anxious when there’s too much stimulation, like when we’re walking downtown, seeing lots of people and dogs, or hearing too much noise. A soothing voice helps to calm me down. Some leash training may help, but I also may just prefer a more quiet neighborhood where the smells are great and I can feel safe with my human.
I can promise that I'm respectful of both dogs and humans alike. (I really like humans. You are so cuddly.) I follow commands even when I'm feeling excited, so you can count on me to obey. Once we develop trust I will look to you for guidance and direction. Love and affection are powerful motivators for me; I want you to be as happy and interested as I am!
Being part of a family is very important to me. I'm a great listener and always willing to learn! I would love to join your family and show you the same loyalty and love that I display here in my foster home. Call today so we can meet - together we can discover our own adventures!
