My Story

Date into Rescue: 8/23/2021

Reason for being in rescue: Found as a stray 

Special Needs: Moon is up to date on vaccines and heartworm negative. Moon will be spayed the week of 9/6/2021 and ready for adoption by 9/11/2021. Moon is not hypoallergenic and does shed.

What kind of home would be best for me: Moon is a wonderful girl looking for a home with patience to help her reach her full potential. Though timid at first, she warms up once she knows you and so wants to be your best friend. Moon would love another larger, active dog in the home with her but it is not a requirement. She cannot live with small dogs or cats. Moon needs an experienced owner. She is not suited for a home with children under 10. She needs an active family looking for an active companion. Moon is not hypoallergenic and does shed.

What is my personality like: Moon was found tied outside a bar. She was taken in by a compassionate employee there and then brought to the rescue so she could find her forever home. She does not have much history that is known about her past but we have found that she is timid and hesitant in new situations (which is a given for most dogs). Moon can be hesitant when first meeting new people (a little shy) but she opens up eventually and you will see a very loving dog! She likes to play, run, and is smart so it would be beneficial to make sure that she gets lots of physical and mental stimulation.

Moon likes to be around other dogs and get the time to go out and play with them, but she prefers those dogs to be larger (another dog about 40 lbs would be a fantastic playmate for her). She can not be placed with a small dog  or a cat. She does not like sharing a space with another dog when she eats so it would be necessary to either feed in her crate or have the dogs in separate rooms when they eat (assuming from an unknown past it would be probable that she was used to have to protect her food). She has so much potential and go many different routes in terms of lifestyles so long as the lifestyles are active ones. She just wants to be able to spend time with her people and other dog friends. She would make a fantastic hiking buddy.

Moon is clean in her crate and likes to have it so that there is a space of her own. She will get scared but is good for her vet and grooming experiences thus far. She is overall a loving dog who just needs a home that can show her that they will be there for her in the long haul.

How do I act when I first meet new people: A little timid, but friendly and gentle

Tips and Tidbits: Moon was found as a stray. We have no history on her. Based on her overall health and condition we celebrate her birthday on 8/23/2019

House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.
