My name is Moon Pie (Moon for short), (#2948) and I am a gentle lover! Family is extremely important to me; it’s something I missed out on while living in China. From the first day I arrive in your home, I will want to be an important part of your family. I will love you and want to be a part of all you do. I will wait by the door with my leash in my mouth, waiting for our next adventure. I have gone boating, hiking, camping and met kids from 1 to 18 and I love them all. I would really prefer not to live with another dog, I am possessive of my things and sometimes my space. I get along with my foster dogs just fine, but they also know I am the boss. I love going for walks and don’t have a problem meeting new dogs to say hello. I also live with a foster cat and she is really cool and I don’t mind her hanging out at all. I am easily trainable and already know some basic commands. I have done very well becoming potty trained and roaming the house at night and while my foster family is out.
My favorite thing is swimming and I would be very sad if I couldn’t swim frequently. I also love a cozy blankets to roll around in, a good tennis ball and ice cubes (especially when my foster family makes them from chicken broth). I don’t like being kenneled because there isn’t enough space when I need to stretch my spine. I have Spondylosis (spurs on my spine), a condition that requires daily medication to keep me moving and pain free. I will need yearly or twice yearly blood testing, to make sure my meds aren’t hurting other organs. When I have my meds, then I feel good and you would never know I have a painful condition. I am almost unstoppable, as long as I stay close to my current 60 lbs. I will benefit from things like PT, water therapy and/or acupuncture so would love to find a family that will provide this support for me.
If you’re looking for a lover, who has beautiful blonde hair…then look no further…I’m your girl. My foster mom says, once you meet me…you will love me!!
I am being fostered in the Portland area.
