Meet Moxie! This 3-year old brindle beauty is one sassy gal. Moxie has got, well, moxie! She is a bubbly and spunky girl who loves to play and is an official zoomie expert. She seems to prefer squeakers and rope toys and hasn’t destroyed any yet though she loves to chew them (did we just jinx it?)

Moxie is also a professional sniffer and has thoroughly inspected every nook and cranny of her foster home with her nose (and it certainly is a spectacular beak!). She is smart, food motivated, great on leash, awesome in the crate, and knows basic commands. This playful and spirited hippo wants to please and is super, super snuggly. And those ears! They are little sound radars to pick up on all the new noises in her foster home. Moxie loves to nap during the day, but gets a little more spirited and active in the evening, before sleeping soundly through the night.

We suspect Moxie would love to be the queen of the castle in her forever home, but don’t worry, she has more than enough love to give. She had a few doggie friends in the shelter that she seemed to like, but we don’t think she has had a lot of exposure to dogs in general. Though she may be compatible with some dogs, we feel as though she would be happiest as the only dog in the house. Moxie lived with a few extremely social cats for a short while, and was a bit too interested. We think she could live successfully with a dog savvy cat who was a bit more aloof. Due to her size and lack of history, older kids would be best for this vivacious pup.

We extend our sincere thanks to the following sponsors for supporting Moxie!
