Moby is a puppy at heart and a wise old soul all wrapped into one.  He loves to play and go for walks but also loves to rest and relax at the end of the day at your side.  He is a super smart guy, that thrives with routine. With the right calm person (or people), this guy is the most loving dog you can imagine.  He catches on quickly with repetition and positive reinforcement and would excel with a person dedicated to continuing his training.  He is quite in tune with how you are feeling, and if you are sad, he will go out of his way to rest his head on you until you feel at peace again.  He’s quite a wonderful boy.

When Moby meets new dogs in the home, he may bark.  With slow introductions, he can become a buddy to most dogs, even little ones for whom he has turned into a great big brother.  If there is another dog in the home, he may need more than one meet and greet to be matched and we are dedicated to this process for him.  Out and about on walks, Moby is excited seeing dogs (and wildlife) but when you are equipped with treats, he is great at focusing back on you. He just loves cookies!

Moby is crate trained and house trained.  He has a fun-loving and playful personality.  He will make sure you stay fit with at least 2 x 30-minute walks per day, and if you add in some play time, this combo will go a long way to keeping him happy.  Playing with toys with his person or going for leashed adventures, cuddling a bunch with you and then finding a good sun ray on the floor for a nap is the perfect day for Moby.

This guy will be the most amazing heart-dog for someone willing to give him a loving home.
