High-spirited, talkative, playful, inquisitive, smart — Moose is quite the character, and we’ve really enjoyed getting to know this young boy. He has an affectionate side and a stubborn side. He’s confident, but he can also be shy.
Moose is a young pup — a little over a year old — who’s still figuring out life and who just wants to please. According to his previous rescue, Moose’s favorite thing is playing trick and treat. That is, he does a trick and you give him a treat. This boy was in training for several months and learned all kinds of wonderful things: leash manners, sit, shake, lay, crate and recall. Sometimes he chooses not to come when called but not because he doesn’t understand what you’re asking. He would just rather play the “come get me” game. Moose loves to play.
At first he wasn’t too sure about playing with other dogs, but he eventually made canine friends and learned how to participate in play groups. As long as his furry friend is about his size, Moose is behaves well. No small animals for this big dude. Moose prefers calmer, older children and likes to talk to his people. He was a true gentleman at large, busy adoption events in Texas. When meeting new people in new places, he can act shy. Given some time to adjust, he’s a total leaner who loves butt scratches and seems convinced that he’s a lap dog.
