Moose is smart, energetic, playful and shy. He will thrive with an owner who enjoys devoting time to doing things. If you currently have a daily exercise routine, he will be a most motivated workout partner. 

Learning new skills is fun and necessary for this young dog. Hiking, agility, barn hunt, you name it. 

Moose is cautious with people outside of his normal routine. Being understanding of his social skills is necessary to be successful.His trust is built with time and patience. A consistent schedule and predictable routine benefits Moose; he likes to know the next task for the day. Surprises are for the birds. 

Moose is excellent with other dogs and cats, however, his favorite social activity will be spending time playing and cuddling with you. Hedearly loves toys, going for runs, long walks and hikes.

Otis may qualify as a "senior" canine citizen; but you would never guess his age if wehadn't already told you. Otis has a clean bill of health and has seen the same veterinarian all his life. He is very active and full of life. He enjoys casual walks and hiscuddle time. 

Otis grew up riding shotgun driving truck with his owner. He is an excellent travel buddy and loves to explore with that awesome nose of his. He's had experience around livestock and is good with grandchildren. He will never pass up a chance to chase a rabbit; therefore, his new owner should love to go for walks on-leash.

Otis is looking for a companion to share in his adventures. A backyard is simply not enough. An active walker will make a happy pairing for this lively "senior" canine.
