About Moxie

Doberman Pinscher

Located in Utah! Meet Moxie - the total Velcro dog ! Moxie is a 2.5 yr old spayed European Doberman that was surrendered due to her previous owner having health issues and was unable to properly exercise or walk her for most of her life. Moxie is the epitomy of a velcro Doberman. She is happiest when she gets to follow her human wherever they may go (even if it is 5 laps around the kitchen island), and can experience separation anxiety when away from them. She is kennel trained and settles down in her kennel as long as music is left on and the kennel is partially covered. She is also afraid of stairs but strangely only ones inside a home, she walks up and down them no problem if outdoors. Because of this she would do best in a home where the majority of living happens on a main floor. This is also a bonus as you really have to only keep one floor in a home cleared of any items that Moxie may chew. Moxie is super goofy and does the traditional Doberman 'zoomers' around her foster homes yard when excited. Another funny quirk is that when she goes to the bathroom, instead of marking her spot she does a series of fast spins, so fast that they make her foster family dizzy watching them ! She is highly motivated by food indoors and she will do anything for a green bean or a bell pepper ! 100 % housetrained and has had no accidents in her current foster home. She is super intelligent and can figure out how to open some doors and picks up new tricks easily at home, she may do best in a home with a dog door. So far she is learning sit, stay, lie down, heel and already can do repetitive puppy push-ups. She loves to play fetch and amazingly actually returns the ball ! She also loves carrying her ball around with her in the house and will store it in her food dish for safe keeping. As expected of a young Doberman, Moxie had developed some bad habits (such as chewing shoes and stealing food) which have not presented themselves as frequently in her foster home now that she is exercised both physically and mentally and is presented with many appropriate chew toys. She also came to us 20-30 lbs overweight which her foster family has been working on getting her to a healthier weight so she can get more exercise (hiking/fetch and etc) easier. At this point her foster family has just been walking her and working on her leash manners and socialization. Moxie LOVES all people and is very excited to get attention from others and will attempt to pull whomever is walking her to go and greet ALL people, she does jump on people which can be unappreciated due to her size. Moxie is being fostered in a home with young children and a cat but as Moxie was not exposed much previously with smaller humans/animals she views her smaller foster home occupants as litter mates and her exerburance to play with them isn't always welcomed as it can be a bit of rough play. Moxie also can get quite nervous around smaller children and their excitement levels. Because of this she would do best in a home with no children and no small pets. May get along with other larger dogs with similar energy levels but hasn't been tested with many other dogs at this point. Moxie has nipped people while being fostered but we are unsure if this was partially due to being startled while still stressed from being surrendered. Her new owner will need to keep her on a diet and commit to properly training and socializing her. Moxie is going to the vet this week to get her thyroid checked and to make sure there are no other issues and will be ready for adoption once afterwards. All animals adopted from us are fully vetted including spay/neuter, vaccines, microchip, heartworm test and deworming.
