Moon Pie got her name because she’s sooo sweet! She is a female Black Lab Mix and is about 6 months old. She currently weighs about 36 lbs. She lives inside a home and is crated at night…although she loves to be close to people. I have a crate in the bedroom where she sleeps at night. She is house trained and knows how to use a doggie door.
Moon Pie is extremely sweet and passive. She loves to cuddle on the couch, play with other dogs and cats. She is so gentle that she would prefer that you stand close to her while she eats. She’s very calm and laid back. Absolutely, the opposite of hyper. Moon Pie would prefer to have another dog in her home to look up to and follow. She looks to other dogs for leadership. She is very “girly” and sweet. Likes both men, women and especially children.
She was spayed on Feb 4, 2010, she has all her shots, was tested heartworm negative and is on HW preventative and Frontline. She was rescued from a shelter at 10 weeks of age and was subsequently found to have congenital left femoral hip degenerative joint disease that is treated with a daily supplement that costs $15.00 per month. (Synovi chews with Glucosamine and Chondroitin) Her activity is not impaired but she should not be taken on long hikes or become someone’s a running partner and should keep a health slim-weight as a preventative measure. to get overweight. She’s a normal puppy but just needs to be monitored during her lifetime. This condition is common in Labs and German Shepherds.
Moon Pie would fit in most any family but ideal for her would be one with young children, since she is so gentle and sweet, and with another dog that she could look up to and be her canine companion. She is like a big Teddy Bear…soft, cuddly and sweet. She seems to be emotional and sensitive. She’s not a toughie in any way.
