Moishe is black with brown eyes, a little bit of gray on his snout, and floppy ears.
Moishe is so sweet! A little bit reserved and cautious at first, once he gets to know you, he is like a shadow--keeping an eye on what you're doing and where you're going. He really loves to get treats and so is treat/food-motivated! We have a fenced yard and that's where he opens up and explores on his own, so he would love a fenced yard. Moishe is very easy to walk, as he likes to go slowly. He gets along with other dogs and can hang out with them, but should be the only dog in the home. Moishe is able to live with cats in his new home.
When you're ready to relax, he's right there with you and will curl up next to you. Moishe is house-trained. Although he is not crate-trained, given his age, that shouldn't be insisted on. He doesn't bother anything in the home when left to his own devices. If left home alone, he will bark loudly for a short period and again if he hears strange noises, so an apartment setting may not be the best living environment for him. He is fine meeting other dogs on leash--the meetings just need to be slow and gradual.
Moishe is up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped, neutered, and heartworm negative. He has some separation anxiety, for which he takes trazodone twice a day. Other than that, his health is good.
Moishe's owner is in declining health and can no longer care for him.
