IT IS FINALLY TIME! MOOSE is ready to board the plane and arrive at her furever home! We are seeking a foster-to-adopt situation for this lovely girl which means she MUST be willing to enter your home on January 4th! For those who haven’t followed her story, MOOSE was found severely malnourished. She was very frail, underweight, and without any vetting. She was tied outside our rescue partners shelter in Mexico so her story is unknown. Unfortunately, due to her maltreatment, MOOSE has underdeveloped legs probably due to not having enough nutrients and possibly not being given the ability to run/play in order to build muscle mass. In August, SOS supporters paid her entire vetting bills and helped start her rehabilitation and recovery process. MOOSE has been living with her rescuers in Mexico since and is now healthy and ready to fly to Toronto. She does although have long-lasting leg issues that will need continued rehabilitation with her adopters. She will need to be seen by the vet but may need minimally water therapy to continue to build muscle and strength in her legs.
As for personality, MOOSE is very very happy to go lucky and wiggles her butt (and legs) to all those who will give her attention. She is a little sassy girl who likes being the centre of attention and is hugely human-oriented. She is also friendly with other dogs and currently visits a shelter of 200+ dogs. She has been socialized but has also never been a “proper pet” in terms of what we practice in Canada. For example, will need leash work, housetraining, proper dog intros, basic obedience, etc. She is okay with cats from her rescuers experience and will do better with older kids. Please put in an application to adopt below!
Please do not fill out an application if you are unable to take the dog the day of its posted arrival or if you are headed on vacation in the near future. Please be prepared and available to complete the rest of the adoption process shortly after filling out this app (which involves an interview, reference check, etc). As well note that with the expectation that you will be adopting, that we may put more expectations on you helping in the first few weeks as a foster, vs. us relying on other volunteers (E.g. possibly arranging PU from airport or to the vet). If all of this sounds peachy then please don't hesitate to apply NOW
