#11498 Mookaite

Adoption Pending
Large-size, Male, Young Shepherd,

Mookaite came North as part of the OPH gemstone theme transport on 01/8/22. He is guessed to be 7 month old Shepard mix weighing approximately 53 pounds. He is an extremely sweet boy with a strikingly beautiful coat. Despite his size, he is still a puppy, full of curiosity and clumsy, playful energy. He is a smart and very happy boy who loves praise and treats. He likes exploring, fetching and playing with his toys. After playtime, he enjoys taking a well deserved nap. Although he can be timid initially, Mookaite loves people and warms up to new friends quickly with a little reassurance. With his foster family, he has been working on house training, walking on a leash and following indoor house rules. Mookaite is a fast learner has done an amazing job. He will already go the the door to tell you when he needs to go outside. He has become comfortable going for walks around the neighborhood and seems to enjoy the adventure (though loud noises from a large truck going by can still be intimidating). He has learned to "sit," "stay," and "come" and is working on new words. Mookaite is eager to please and listens surprisingly well for a young dog. Although it is easy to get him excited, he has made great progress learning the difference between indoor and outdoor play. After a morning walk and playtime, Mookaite is content to sleep at your feet while you work or curl up on his bed and play with a toy. He is a very special boy looking for his forever family. If that's you... apply today to meet him!

Mookaite is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has been neutered. Mookaite is currently being fostered in Baltimore, MD.

All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Davidsonville, MD for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Davidsonville.

This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
