Critter of the Week (Dog Edition): Moose

Posted By on Wed, May 11, 2011 at 9:04 AM


Moose, a 2-year-old Labrador Retriever mix (most definitely not part moose, though his size is reminiscent of one), has fallen on hard times.

Poor Moose has been homeless 5 times in just 5 months. After unexpectedly outliving his owner, Moose has been bounced around from home to home for jumping a 4-foot fence (he’s a big boy!) and for not getting along with the smaller dog in his household. Despite his unfortunate track record, Moose is a wonderfully loving, happy, and easy-going boy who would do anything to impress you. Just ask his Canine College instructors! Moose is currently working one-on-one with trainers to learn basic obedience commands and becoming the best dog he can be. Moose knows not to jump on you, will proudly sit for a treat and loves to play fetch with squeaky toys. Good dog! If you could give this pup down on his luck the permanent, loving home he’s always wanted, please visit Moose today at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona!

And here's a video of Moose frolicking.

Come meet Moose! He's currently living at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, 3450 N. Kelvin Blvd. The Humane Society is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. The phone number is 327-6088.
