Pet name:
Attention: This is a courtesy posting only! This pet is NOT available through Mountain Pet Rescue. Please do NOT contact MPR for information about the pet or apply to adopt this pet on the MPR website. Contact for more information or to adopt the pet.Moose was adopted from a kill-shelter in Memphis last year by my father to be a junkyard dog as my father owned a scrap metal business and wanted a dog to be there. I had no idea about this because my father and I had been estranged. My father passed away, unfortunately, and that is when I found out there was a dog there. I traveled to Memphis and took action to get Moose out of his situation. I paid for Moose to go through intensive training with Happy Tails Dog Training in Memphis. He has been there for 2 months, and it turns out that Moose is just the very best boy! He is obedient, playful, joyful, full of energy and love. He is good with other animals, adults and children. I am going to Memphis at the end of this month (September) to bring Moose back to Asheville as I had no luck with fostering and adoption in the Memphis area. I am unfortunately unable to keep Moose as I already have 5 animals and cannot properly care for him.Moose is on Bravecto and has the Heart Gard shot that lasts one year. He is neutered and has been chipped. Contact me today at to learn more about happy Moose!

All Mountain Pet Rescue (Asheville) animals are up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed/neutered and micro-chipped before adoption. Contact the foster parent or Mountain Pet Rescue at for more information.

Please note that visual breed identification of companion animals has been proven to be unreliable, so for most of our animals we provide a best guess at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each of our animals as an individual and do our best to describe and place pets based on personality not breed label.

AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
