Moose came to us from friends at All 4’s Rescue in Memphis - he was kept outside during their recent freezing cold spell and they were able to get the owner to let them bring him into boarding to keep him safe and warm; eventually the owner agreed to surrender him completely so we were able to get him neutered, vaccinated and have started looking for his forever home.
Moose recently moved New England and we are working with some behavior challenges that are most definitely workable - our trainer tells us these are typical rottie behaviors and therefore you must have ROTTIE EXPERIENCE to be considered for Moose.
He has spent the last month in a foster home who has worked with him on house training and getting used to being in a house - he’s done great and is super affectionate, housetrained.
Moose has some problems with social cues from other dogs - he wants to play and doesn’t know when to stop - when another dog says “all done” he says “let’s go” and will try to continue. No aggression that has been witnessed, just no sense of it’s not all about “me.” For now we are saying no other dogs unless again you are an experienced Rottie owner who is able to integrate Moose to your other dog’s space.
This guy also feels that what’s his is his and no one else’s - also known as resource guarding which will need continued work but is most effectively dealt with in his new home.
So if you aren’t scared away this beauty is going to be worth it. He’s super affectionate with his peeps but he’s not for the faint of heart!!
