Moxie

Distinguishing Characteristics

Moxie is a fawn colored pit mix with fawn colored eyes.

Do you have any canine housemates?

I have an older brother, Kurtz, who I love to wrestle, play tug, and snuggle with him in his crate.

How did you join your family?

My mom saw my picture on the facebook page for Chicago Animal Care and Control (CACC) adoptable page and came down with the whole family to see how we all go along which, of course we all did!

Do you have any “jobs”? Tell us about them and what you like most about them.

I am very excited to be a new ambassador dog for Safe Humane Chicago! I can't wait for my first trip to school.  In the meantime I will keep greeting everyone when I go out on my walks.

Do you have any “hobbies”?

I love to snuggle and give kisses.  Mom says it's like having your own personal furnace on your lap.

What is your favorite trick?

I am really good at "wait" especially when a treat is put on my paw and I love doing "high-five."

What is your favorite toy?

Any toy that my big brother has or any ball that is being thrown.

What is your favorite treat?

Kongs that are stuffed with wet dog food and then frozen.

What do you like to do when your parents aren’t home?

Sleep in my crate so I can reserve my energy to play when everyone comes home.

Is there anything you would like to tell us about your work with Safe Humane Chicago or anything else?

I was really scared when I was living on the streets as a stray and I am very lucky to have found such a loving home.   I want to teach people the proper way to take care of their dogs and to promote adoption.
