Banana is a beautiful, gentle soul. Her owner had an unexpected medical issue that made it so he could no longer take care of her. Friends of the owner were keeping her until a rescue or home could be secured. We were happy to evaluate her and agreed to take her into our program. Banana has met some of the dogs in our program as well as some new friends of The Mutt Hutt. She is a bit shy (and unexpectedly overwhelmed with all the changes) and does not like the high activity of dogs playing right now. She has been staying in a low-key atmosphere with our administrative staff for some of the day and getting socialized in daycare for part of the day. She is moving into a foster home and there we hope she will have some peace and calm to decompress from the loss of her owner and former home and we can get to know her a bit better.

Stay tune more in the coming weeks and update his profile accordingly. If you would like to meet Banana please email us to set up an appointment.

Moo Moo

MooMoo

Arrival Date: 12/14/2017
Breed: Terrier/Shar Pei Mix
Gender: Female
Age: 2-3 years
Weight: 35-40#
Personality:
Fully Vaccinated:  Yes
Microchipped: Yes
Spayed/Neutered: Scheduled
In foster Home:
Dog Social: Yes
Crate Trained: 100%
House Trained: Yes
Kid-Friendly: Yes
Cat-Friendly Cat-Curious, Proceed with caution
Origin: Owner Surrender (Owner lost home)
Adoption Fee: $200

MooMoo_yawnMoo Moo (otherwise known as Sasha) is the victim of home foreclosure. Her devastated family had no choice but to surrender her so she could find a home to live in. She was raised with the same family since she was 8 weeks old. She is a mix of terrier, Shar Pei and maybe bull dog (she’s got an outstanding under bite). She’s grown up around older children and is a very loyal and affectionate girl. She loves to snuggle in bed and be by her human companions. A few weeks prior to the family losing their home they also had to put their older dog to sleep so Moo Moo has been through a lot. She does need to learn some basic commands.

Moo Moo is up to date on shots, spayed and microchipped.

FOSTER CARE REPORT

MooMOo_chairMooMoo/Sasha is a wonderful dog. She is smart, affectionate, playful, and fun. She and my dogs have a great time entertaining each other. She listens pretty well and is very treat motivated. She can be a bit grabby so she has to be reminded to be gentle and nice when taking a treat. We are working on basic commands but haven’t gotten too far yet.  She’s usually pretty calm and low key. She likes to relax next to me in the recliner or sometimes claims her own chair. She sleeps through the night; if she wants to go out, which is rare, she stands on me to wake me up–not fun!!
Moo Moo needs leash training but is doing better – she is a little reactive meeting other dogs on a leash but her reaction is not to be assumed as aggression. She would probably do best in a household with a male dog if her adopter was looking to pair her up or be a solo dog and work on her communication skills on a leash. 
MooMoo_dogs
She’s good in the car and loves going for rides. Because she always wants to be with her human, she will rush to the door to go with you, whether you want her to or not. We are working on that too. She is now fully crate trained and does not seem to mind being left in a crate. If I’m gone longer, into the crate she goes. She really does not like to be home alone and gets inquisitive about things that she shouldn’t.
MooMoo would love to be able to run around and play in a fenced yard with a canine companion of similar size and temperament. She would be great with adults or in a family with older kids.
All in all, an awesome Secondhand Mutt!
