I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Moose is a 1.5 year old, purebred blue Merle, Neo mastiff. Moose is looking for a very special kind of home. He was dumped in the local kill shelter in severe CHF. He'll never be cured, he was born with dilated cardiomyopathy, but the regimen of medications he's on has turned him into a happy, playful puppy. His new family needs to understand that while Moose is in good health and good spirits now, we don't know how long he'll have. He might be around for 2 more months or 5 more years, we just don't know. But Moose is such a happy spirited guy that he deserves a loving family for as long as he has left. He has a BIG personality and everyone that meets him falls in love with him. Due to his size and puppy personality he needs a home with no young children and no small dogs. Applicants must also have giant breed experience, and experience with cardiac illness/terminal illnesses would be a plus. You must also be willing and financially able to keep him on his meds which are $250-300/month and have his abdominal fluid drained if it comes back. If you think you could be Moose's special family for whatever time he has left, please email for an application. His adoption fee is $400
