Name: Moose

Age: 5 years old

Sex: Male

Breed: Mastiff

Ref number: 67

Moose is a loveable gentle giant who is patiently waiting for his perfect forever home. Even though he is the size of a small horse he thinks he is a lap dog and likes to sit on you or snuggle up next to you and go to sleep. Moose generally walks well on the lead and is happy to plod alongside you. The staff here have fallen in love with his sweet nature, once he trusts you he is very calm and easy to handle and is becoming much quicker to make friends. He has recently enjoyed trips to the beach where he likes to have a paddle in the water and he travels well in any vehicle.

Poor Moose is a little worried by the world and can find it difficult to trust new people, particularly men, so any potential adopters would need to be prepared to meet him here at the centre several times to gain his trust. Due to him not being aware of how strong he is Moose has got himself into trouble before due to no fault of his own, for this reason he will need to be muzzled in public and he is fully muzzle trained.  Moose can be wary of cars and bikes and may get worried and pull towards them so any potential adopter would need to be confident they could handle his strength and continue the positive training he is receiving to help improve his reactions to these things. He is generally quite nervous so would need someone who understands this and can allow him to make space from the things that worry him and take things at his pace.

Moose would need a quiet home with only one or two adults, he would need access to an enclosed private garden and must live in a low cat populated area due to having a high prey drive. Moose is generally very relaxed and just wants a safe place to snooze for most of the day while being provided with regular exercise. He cannot be rehomed to the Cowplain area

Moose must be the only animal in the home and he cannot live with children or have any visiting young children, this is because he is very worried by young children and wouldn’t be comfortable around them. However Moose does like other dogs and could walk with them if he was muzzled.

Vet history:
Moose is castrated, fully vaccinated and up to date with flea and worming treatment. When Moose first arrived with us in July 2022 he had cruciate ligament surgery, he is now fully recovered but his exercise should be monitored carefully and he should be encouraged to keep all paws on the floor. Potential adopters would need to be aware that he may need further cruciate surgery on his other leg in the future and this would not be covered by insurance.

Adoption fee:
The adoption fee is £180. If you would like to make an additional donation over and above the adoption fee, this would be hugely appreciated.

Additional information:

We reserve the right to remove a reserve at any stage of the adoption process if we believe it is in the best interest of the dog.

Adopters should consider that previous medical conditions will now not be covered by insurance. Adopters are responsible for the on-going medical costs once the animal has been adopted.

Due to the high number of applications we receive daily, regrettably we will only be able to contact the successful applicant.

Please note you have to be 18+ to apply for an animal
