Moose is an adorable, sweet and gentle 12-year-old German shepherd mix who was among nearly 10 pups that the Arizona Humane Society cruelty investigator rescued after they were abandoned.

He and the other animals were found in April and are great examples of the 7,400 calls about suspected cruelty that the Arizona Humane Society investigates every year.

Cute Moose was found in relatively good health but since he is on the older side he will need to get help trimming down to a healthier weight to keep his joints healthy. While not much is known about his past, he loves to give big snuggles, play with his two-legged friends and go on walks. Moose is an incredible pup with a lot of love to give and receive. He is the perfect example of a pet given a second chance to have a great life because of those who support Arizona Humane Society.

While all Arizona Humane Society adoption locations were temporarily closed as of press time, the Virtual Adoption Matchmaker Program is available to place pets like him with “fur-ever” families.

Moose’s animal number is 635211. He is one of many wonderful pets you can adopt from the Arizona Humane Society. To learn more, visit
