Five-year-old German Shepherd Moose may look more like a wolf but he has the bravery of a mouse! This sweet lad weighs in at 44kg and is a very clever boy who loves to learn. He’s very active and enjoys going for long walks so is looking for a home that not only has space for him but can also keep up with him!

Despite his size, poor Moose can get worried in small spaces so is looking for a home that’s big enough to help him feel safe and secure but not trapped. He’d like a secure garden with 6ft fences at least so he can roam and explore. He’s also on the lookout for experienced owners who can help work with him on some behavioural challenges; he’s made wonderful progress in RSPCA care but still has further to go. Moose can also find loud noises and busy places overwhelming so we feel he’d be best in a quiet, rural home.

Moose will build strong bonds with his new family and, once he knows you, is very trusting, affectionate and loves fuss. He’d be best in an adult-only home without too many visitors and we’d like him to be the only pet in the home. He can be left for short periods but enjoys being with the people he loves. He’ll need time to get used to new people so adopters must be willing to meet him multiple times before taking him home.
