This handsome, easy-going fella is Mooch. He'll mesmerize you with his tail - it never stops wagging! Especially when he's around people and getting pets and loving attention. Mooch is very friendly with kids but doesn't appear to be aware of his size so he'd do best in a home with older children. He also does well with other dogs and is currently living with a small and large dog in his foster home.

Mooch is very smart and food-motivated which makes him very trainable. He has already picked up the command, 'sit' and is working on, 'down'. He can't wait to be bribed with treats to learn more! Mooch is also working on crate training and house training. He doesn't love the crate but will follow treats inside and is able to settle down after a little bit. Mooch knows to go to the bathroom outside but he doesn't understand yet that he needs to alert his people when he needs to go, so there is the occasional accident, but he is learning!

Mooch is healthy and very energetic. He loves walks around the neighborhood and would enjoy having a family that is fairly active. If you're looking for a furry and loveable walking companion, look no further than Mooch. Come meet this happy boy today!
