This little Moose has to be the cutest moose I’ve ever seen (admittedly not many). In her toffee, vanilla, and chocolate coat she reminds me much more of the ice cream after which she is surely named. And she’s no less delicious. At 45 pounds she is a sweet, petite peanut, and with that forever-wagging tail a true bundle of (almond) joy. Moose walks well on leash, takes her treats gently, and sits *most* of the time when asked. Well she has a stubborn streak! Just as any moose…or is it mule…would. But no matter. She’s young, and bright, and eager to please. Happiest when on the receiving end of a belly rub or when showing a Kong who’s boss. Just one look at a fuzzy, yellow ball and Moose drops into a play bow growing absolutely “nutty” as she tosses, flings, and rolls it with glee. Other pups? Well she bows to them as well! Each one that we pass on our walk gets a personalized bounce, wag, and grin. So craving something sweet? Scrap the diet, lose “track” of time, and come indulge in the sweetest (of heart), richest (of spirit), and most delectable (of all) girl around. Moose is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan’s ACC.
11/30: Moose greets dogs through the fence with a soft body and wagging tail.
12/1: When introduced off leash to other dogs in the care center, Moose is initially a bit tense and turns away from approach. When being walked back inside from the yard, Moose greets and offers bows when greeting a dog on-leash.
12/2: Moose is initially uninterested but after spending some time sniffing around the yard she begins to engage in play. She offers bows and solicits chase but is anxious and whining throughout the interaction.
During initial exam moose appeared to be tense though tolerated all handling without issue.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Average (Suitable for an adopter with an average amount of dog experience)
