Moxie is a stunning girl with a ton of enthusiasm for life! Her foster home reports that she greets each day wriggling with energy and pure joy. This young girl needs a LOT of exercise and mental stimulation to help her drain energy and manage her excitement levels, so needless to say: no couch potatoes need apply! She’d be an ideal running or hiking companion, but just about any activity will do. She is always up for endless games of tug or fetch and has even played fly ball in a previous home.
Moxie is very clever and will do just about anything for a treat – provided she has inspected it and found it worthy! She knows quite a few tricks, like spin, shake and highfive. Her most impressive feat is spinning to snatch a frisbee off her own butt before it hits the floor! With all that energy, Moxie needs a calm, structured environment with plenty of outlets for her boundless excitement. Although she does like to pull when walking on-leash, a head collar keeps walks civilized while she continues to work on her leash manners and overall self control.
Moxie doesn’t have a mean bone in her body, but her enthusiasm can be overwhelming! She loves other dogs, but frequently misses their social cues when she gets excited, so calm introductions and supervised play is a must. Although she likes to chase cats, she’d do fine in a home with a laid-back male dog.
Moxie is happy to hang out in her crate for up to 5 hours and has not shown any signs of separation anxiety. As long as she is getting sufficient exercise and stimulation, Moxie seems to be just fine on her own in the house, crated or loose.
Moxie is one of a kind and will be an amazing addition to the right family. If you’d like to make Moxie a permanent part of your life, please send us at HugABull an email to fill out an adoption form!
Moxie is sponsored in loving memory of Jessica Coulter-Brown.
Thank you to Dierdre, Kayla, Helen & Ruth, Sonya & Amanda, Kimberley, Torin and Rita for being her HugABull Angels!
