About Moira

Adoption Fee: $250
Jack Russell mix
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

Moira is a 4 year old, 15 pound terrier mix. Moira was rescued from a farm in Marengo. This was a hoarder environment with 70 dogs onsite where she did not have contact with humans on a regular basis. She was rescued in the bitter cold in January with her only surviving puppy that has now been adopted. Moira is just learning to be an indoor dog and requires a fenced yard and other small dogs in her home that she can follow and learn from. She would do best with experienced dog owners and not a first-time dog owner. She is still scared and shy with humans. When a human reaches for her she backs away and avoids the hand. Her biggest fears are being confined and being picked up. She has a lot to learn about being a dog. It will take her time to become more like a normal dog, so her new family will need to be patient with her. Moira is now housetrained and is used to being indoors, but her new home should be ready to just let her exist in their home for a while without expecting her to be loving and cuddly. Her new people will be able to celebrate every breakthrough and milestone she makes which brings a lot of satisfaction when rescuing a dog like Moira. Moira is spayed, up to date on vaccinations, heartworm tested, and microchipped.
