About Luna

Adoption Fee: $200
Australian Shepherd
Age: Young Adult
Sex: Female

Luna is a two year old spayed female Mini Aussie. Luna came into MCAR after her human dad suddenly passed away. Her world was turned upside down. Luna was overweight and afraid of everything and everyone. With time and patience she has lost weight (she may still need to loose just a bit more) has learned to play with other dogs and will allow petting and seeks attention. Luna will need a home that is experienced at understanding subtle dog behavior, has the time and patience that will be required to gain her trust and give her the space she needs to gain confidence. Luna needs a doggy playmate in her new home of similar size, age and energy. Her weight loss has been managed by measured feedings and increasing her activity. She needs a family committed to helping her stay at a healthy weight. She actually enjoys engaging other dogs in play and needs the continued activity to encourage her to run and play. For this reason a fenced yard is important. Luna can be head shy and worries if someone reaches for her head or touches her in certain spots. She can react out of fear if she's pushed beyond her comfort zone. For this reason we won't place her in a home with children or grandchildren under the age of 15. Luna's new family will need to understand that it may take her weeks to months to become comfortable in a new home. We are happy to give guidance and support for her new family during this transition time. Luna may not do well at a grooming shop due to her fears so her new family will need to work to gain her trust with bathing and brushing and trimming so she can maintain her beauty routine. Muzzle training will be an important tool so that when she needs to see a veterinarian or other provider she can be managed safely in case she becomes fearful. Our goal is to find a family that Luna can thrive in and become the best dog she can be. Her new family will need a lot of patience and willingness to give her the gift of time.
