Description:
Luna is a two year old spayed female Mini Aussie. Luna came into MCAR after her
human dad suddenly passed away. Her world was turned upside down. Luna was
overweight and afraid of everything and everyone. With time and patience she has
lost weight (she may still need to lose just a bit more) has learned to play with
other dogs and will allow petting and seeks attention. Luna will need a home that is
experienced at understanding subtle dog behavior, has the time and patience that
will be required to gain her trust and give her the space she needs to gain
confidence. Luna needs a doggy playmate in her new home of similar size, age and
energy. Her weight loss has been managed by measured feedings and increasing
her activity. She needs a family committed to helping her stay at a healthy weight.
She actually enjoys engaging other dogs in play and needs the continued activity to
encourage her to run and play. For this reason a fenced yard is important. Luna can
be head shy and worries if someone reaches for her head or touches her in certain
spots. She can react out of fear if shes pushed beyond her comfort zone. For this
reason we wont place her in a home with children or grandchildren under the age
of 15. Luna’s new family will need to understand that it may take her weeks to
months to become comfortable in a new home. We are happy to give guidance and
support for her new family during this transition time. Luna may not do well at a
grooming shop due to her fears so her new family will need to work to gain her
trust with bathing and brushing and trimming so she can maintain her beauty
routine. Muzzle training will be an important tool so that when she needs to see a
veterinarian or other provider she can be managed safely in case she becomes
fearful. Our goal is to find a family that Luna can thrive in and become the best dog
she can be. Her new family will need a lot of patience and willingness to give her
the gift of time.
