Meet Mo *adoption pending*
***We appreciate every application we get, however due to the volume we receive we are unable to contact each individual who sends one in.

Mo asks that you please read all the information below before sending in your application.
Mo is an incredible dog. She is playful, curious, affectionate, inquisitive, athletic, intelligent, goofy, and is obviously drop dead gorgeous! She knows several basic behaviours already, and enjoys her training time.
Her favourite toys are squeaky toys, especially plush/stuffies, chew toys, and she also loves a good stick. She enjoys playing tug, running, and jumping. She also likes to carry a toy or stick while out and about.
Mo is a big fan of water, and we think she would loves playing at the beach or by the lake. She’d probably be a great camping companion!
Mo is a very sensitive dog, both emotionally and physically. She will require a very specific household for her needs to be properly met. Mo is very concerned about strangers, especially when they are entering her space. For this reason she will need a home with few visitors, and a family that does not entertain, or host gatherings. Any visitors will likely need to be introduced to Mo outside before entering the home.
Her forever home will also need to have no small animals such as cats, birds, or rodents.
We believe Mo would likely do very well in a multi dog household, with one or two other medium to large dogs. They will need to be friendly and calm, and a confident and sociable dog would likely have a positive impact on Mo when working on visitor training.
Her future adopter(s) will need a basic understanding of positive reinforcement training, the ability to be calm and collected around large nervous dogs, and a patient and positive attitude. Her family will also need adequate time to make sure this girl gets the physical and mental stimulation that she needs. Mo will need ongoing training, especially with regards to strangers and people outside the household, and any visitors to the home will need to be willing to follow training guidelines.
While solid knowledge of positive training basics is a good start, we will ask her adopter(s) to reach out to an AnimalKind trainer for extra support and resources.
