BREED: Miniature Poodle
ADOPTION FEE: $200
This fragile baby bird was surrendered to a Texas shelter when his family could no longer care for him. He was very lucky to get snatched up by a wonderful rescue group there (Dallas Pets Alive), who contact us anytime they have a senior in danger. Transport is always a hurdle, but a wonderful group of volunteers worked hard to get Moses to us in PA. As a hospice dog in Texas he had virtually no chance of adoption, but here we know we will find a special family for this very special boy. Moses has a long list of issues inside and out, but with love and care he can lead a happy life like he deserves.
Moses has some mobility issues, and although he can walk it's best to carry him outside for potty breaks. No walks or hikes for this old fellow! He takes pain medications and should be kept on a joint supplement. He also takes Denosyl for liver disease, and needs metronidazole from time to time for loose stools. Thankfully he has a great appetite and loves pill pockets, so he takes his medicine better than you'd expect. Mostly this old achy fellow just wants to be warm and snuggled: he sleeps all night with his foster mom and loves to be held and cuddled. He happily wears his little sweater and would enjoy whatever wardrobe his new family could provide. Because he was receiving appropriate care in his Texas rescue, Moses' blood work improved enough for him to have a dental cleaning with extractions so he is now feeling much better all around. Moses is just fine with other animals and is a real sweetheart when meeting new people. He's just missing a family who can make up for the last one who abandoned him. We know it's a long shot but we believe the right home is out there for him: if anyone can come through for Moses, it's the GOT family!
