Facts about Moxie

  • Breed: Greyhound

Moxie is a sweet young boy, who will be 1 in November, so he was a non-racer. He appears to fine with small dogs and cats. Moxie is very shy and will do best with an experienced greyhound adopter.

My new name is Moxie. I haven't decided yet whether the person who named me was being ironic or the name was aspirational. You see, I'm quite shy. New situations and especially noises make me very uncomfortable.

My personality is the polar opposite of courage and know-how. However, I did notice the definition of moxie also included "determination." I am determined...determined to find a nice, quiet forever home and a person who will love me, just as I am, forever.

I'm getting braver every day, as I learn more about being a pet and living in a home. I'm moving into a special foster home on November 1st with a nice lady who has a bunch of other dogs, some of whom were shy like me.

I really like the idea of having doggie brothers or sisters, and living with someone who can help me overcome my shyness. Maybe I'll post an update a couple weeks after I move to foster.

Keep me in your thoughts,

Moxie

FOSTER UPDATE:

He is very young. His perfect owner would be someone who has a confident dog (or several!) and has had puppy experience. Puppy proofing is a must.

He has gone out on two walks with my group and has done super well. He has been "helping" my construction guys. He does not care for sudden movements but is getting better about that.

He is not a spook but just young. He is very playful so someone with a younger dog would be great. They don't necessarily need to have grey experience but young dog experience would be a must.
