Moxie: 9.5 year old spayed lab mix, 55 pounds
Moxie is nine-year-old female black lab and pit bull mix who was originally adopted from a San Jose shelter as a puppy. Unfortunately, her home is no longer able to care for her due to some life changes. We are fostering her while searching for a new home where she can get the love she needs.
Moxie is a curious yet timid dog. She loves to run around outdoors, meeting other dogs, and is very loving once she bonds with people. However, she is anxious about unfamiliar people, places and noises. For example, fireworks are terrifying for her, and the sounds of the UPS truck will elicit barks from her, but she loves going on hikes and on a short backpacking trip began to follow when even the new people left the camp.
Moxie has good basic training, such as sitting and waiting for her food or a walk. She is house and crate trained and likes to sleep in her crate. She will do best in a quiet neighborhood. She is fine indoors most of the day, but needs to get outside and run around now and then. She is spayed and has all of her shots up to date. Her previous family will also assist with any medical issues she may develop in her old age.
Moxie is currently in San Jose, but willing to travel to meet potential families. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 408-982-7515 if you would like to meet or find out more about Moxie.
