Moose's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Moose's Story...
Handsome Moose is now looking for his forever home.
Moose is just 2 ½ years old and neutered. He is a very big boy weighing in around 130 pounds.
Moose came to us with a bite history due to resource guarding. In mid August Moose moved to a training facility in the Norfolk VA area.
His trainers work with him daily and Moose is making great progress. Even though he has improved and will continue to improve, Moose cannot move in to just any forever home. Moose thrives when he has a firm leader, defined rules and structure. Small children in the home probably not the best match for Moose, teenagers should be fine as long as they are leaders for Moose and will help him follow the rules.
Moose is a teenager, he needs exercise, his forever home would need to be able to walk him several times a day. His humans can also do obedience work, work on his commands and things like that to also stimulate his mind while at the same time draining his energy.
Part of the adoption process for Moose will be for the potential forever home to be interviewed by his trainers.
Once a forever family is completely approved to adopt Moose, they will need to plan to spend at least several days in Norfolk VA with Moose and his trainers when they pick him up. The time his adopters spend with Moose and his trainers will be invaluable. The adopters can see exactly how Moose has been trained, what has worked for him and how to continue working with him. If his forever home does not continue on the same path with him, he will begin to resource guard again and he may very well bite again.
Moose is full of personality, eager to learn, eager to please and a big love bug.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Moose, a Norfolk Bernese Mountain Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Bernese Mountain Dog for sale in Norfolk, or seeking a Bernese Mountain Dog dog from a breeder in Norfolk.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Norfolk already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Norfolk breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Bernese Mountain Dog breeders who help with Bernese Mountain Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Norfolk paves the way for another one to be saved.
