Success Story: Moose

When the Franklin family visited Valley Humane Society looking for a new canine companion, they envisioned a small dog. To say Moose didn’t quite fit the criteria is a bit of an understatement. Even at six months the Shepherd-mix puppy was clearly oversized. Yet they knew he was coming home with them. Love at first sight, they called it…proving once and for all that love is, in fact, blind. At 8 months of age, Moose weighed in at 60 pounds and was still growing, as was the family’s love for the big pup. Moose loves his thrice-daily walks, is excelling at Manners 101, enjoys chasing balls (or squirrels!) in the backyard, and always chooses appropriate chew toys. “Moose is a wonderful and fun dog, and we are so happy to have him as part of the family,” writes mom Lori. They must have known that good things come in big packages, too!
