“Well Hi! My name is Moose. I am a 9 year old girl looking for a home. I am a petite golden retriever (mix?) with a pretty smile and lovely coat. I weigh 47 pounds. I’m ready to be someone’s one and only! I’ll live my best life in a home without other animals or young children. With me as your best friend and companion, I promise you won’t need another animal or little human around.

“I am snuggly and smart. I will sit with you on the couch or in bed but I can also enjoy playing in the water and I do great on leash. My family will tell you that I am very smart and well-behaved. I know many verbal commands. I am ready to have fun with my new person!

“Once I have time to settle into my new home, I am good to be left alone for awhile if you need to run some errands. I can “hold it” for a few hours because I am still a young senior gal. I can do stairs but I limp with my right hind leg. I am hoping my new person can get me checked out by a vet. This could be arthritis and a supplement or something for the ache could help. Remember we dogs want to please our humans. Sometimes this means we will push through pain to keep going, to make you happy. It’s important that we dogs have regular check ups so that we can stay healthy as long as possible.

“Other dogs make me anxious and kids worry me. I will admit that I have bitten another dog but that was in defense of myself, this dog didn’t like me from the start! I recently bit a young child.  The child got too close to my toy-I can get a little possessive with my ball. But I have never bitten or shown aggression to an adult. I truly love people! Well, grown up people. I confess this to you as I need to be kept away from other dogs and kids so I don’t get worried and get myself into trouble. My life has changed so much recently; I lost my lifelong home and then moved to places where I just didn’t fit in. I am hoping for just the right home to come along but it needs to happen soon! I really want a home where I can stay forever.”
