In shelter Dog

Torrington, CT, 06790
Pet name:
Tricolor (Brown, Black, & White)
Coat length:
Name: Moose
Nicknames: Stinky. Blockhead.
Breed: Boxer
Age: ~10.5 Years
Weight: ~60 lbs.
History: Adopted about 8.5 years ago and his family is expecting their first baby shortly. As he has not been good with kiddos in the past, his family is looking for a new home for him.
Energy level: Lower. Loves to nap, but is up for short play sessions too.
Affection level: Higher. Seeks out pets from his people and doles out kisses too!
Stuck in his ways: If he really wants your attention, he will make a wookie-howl noise. If his water bowl is empty, youll get a soft, low bark. Hell also remind you if his nightly turndown service doesnt include a dental stick. You will always be serenaded with his snoring.
What he loves most: Sunbathing. Car rides. Human touch. Carrots. Peanut Butter. Whipped Cream. Flat footballs. Kongs. The vet, surprisingly!, there are happy nub wags every which direction.
What he knows: Sit. Down. Lay Down. Stay. Come.
Kids: Not for this old man!
Dogs: Females only, please. He lived with a female dog for many years and did well.
Cats: Hard pass.
Housetrained: Sure is!
Crate trained: Yep!
The important things: Loud noises and new situations make him anxious. He also does not show his best behaviors on leash towards new people or other dogs.
Ideal retirement home: A kid-free, quieter home with either no other animals, or potentially a female dog. He would love to live the homebody life. Car rides out for Starbucks/Dunkin runs, taking in the fresh air, going to grab takeout, and promptly returning home to a nice night in.
