Meet Moxie the total Velcro dog ! Moxie is a 2.7 yr old spayed European Doberman that was surrendered due to her previous owner having health issues and was unable to properly exercise or walk her for most of her life.
Moxie is the epitome of a velcro Doberman. She is happiest when she gets to follow her human wherever they may go (even if it is 5 laps around the kitchen island), and can experience separation anxiety when away from them.
Moxie is kennel trained and settles down in her kennel as long as music is left on and the kennel is partially covered.
She is also afraid of stairs but strangely only ones inside a home, she walks up and down them no problem if outdoors. Because of this she would do best in a home where the
majority of living happens on a main floor. This is also a bonus as you really have to only keep one floor in a home cleared of any items that Moxie may chew.
Moxie is super goofy and does the traditional Doberman zoomers around her foster homes yard when excited. Another
funny quirk is that when she goes to the bathroom, instead of marking her spot she does a series of fast spins, so fast that they make her foster family dizzy watching them ! She is highly motivated by food indoors and she will do anything for a green bean or a bell pepper !
Moxie is 100 % housetrained and has had no accidents in her current foster home. She is super intelligent and can figure out how to open some doors and picks up new tricks easily at home, she may do best
in a home with a dog door. So far she is learning sit, stay, lie down, heel and already can do repetitive puppy push-ups. She loves to play fetch and amazingly actually returns the ball ! She also loves carrying her ball around with her in the house and will store it in her food dish for safe keeping.
As expected of a young Doberman, Moxie had developed some bad habits (such as chewing shoes and stealing food) which have not presented themselves as frequently in her foster home now that she is exercised both physically and mentally and is presented with many appropriate
Moxie originally came in at 20-30lbs over weight and currently down to 87lbs from about 110.
Moxie LOVES all people and is very excited to get attention from others and will
attempt to pull whomever is walking her to go and greet ALL people, she does jump on people which can be unappreciated due to her size.
Moxie is being fostered in a home with young children and a cat but as Moxie was not exposed much previously with smaller humans/animals she views her smaller foster home occupants as litter mates and her exuberance to play with them isnt always welcomed as it can be a bit of rough play. Moxie also can get quite nervous
around smaller children and their excitement levels. Because of this she would do best in a
home with no children and no small pets.
Moxie would be ok in a home with other dogs her size as long as they are submissive. We just found out today July 27th that even at her young age she does have wobblers and we are looking into what the best treatment would be for her whether it be pain management as long as we can or surgery. Her new owner will need to keep her on a diet and commit to properly training and socializing her.
Moxie is fully vetted and needs a special home that will care for her for what time she will have with wobblers which that could be many years with the right care. Moxie is currently with a trainer that has worked with her on socializing and you can't ask for a better girl though when she is in pain from her wobblers she can be quiet unruly so the trick is to keep her pain at a minimum!
All animals adopted from us are fully vetted including spay/neuter, vaccines, microchip, heartworm test and deworming.
