OUR ADOPTION FEE IS £250 FOR MOKA
Meet Moka, poor Moka was returned to us after a relationship rescue. So sad for her as why must the dogs always suffer when people separate, we always ask families to fully appreciate dog adoption is for life and work a plan if relationships split, but sadly they never and fail the dogs.
Moka has loved being back with us in foster, another dog to play with, lots of walks and fun that she had not been getting. Moka is a very loyal girl, even after being returned she is still able to love and trust humans. Moka just wants her family to love her forever, she will be loyal and a good girl.
Moka is clean indoors, She loves her walks and fab on and off lead and has great recall. Moka lived with another dog in foster and it was clear she had not been socialised but a couple of days she remembered how much fun other dogs are and loves to play.
Moka is really affectionate, she will be such a loyal girl. Moka would love an active home, she can live as an only dog but as long as she got to meet other dogs.
Moka is in foster in Northampton, so adopters need to be prepared to travel to meet her.
With the right boundaries and guidance he will easily adjust and make a great family pet. We ask our adopters to be 100% sure they are ready to commit to the training and consistent work required.
Our foster home has provided the feedback below:
Dog's name: Moka
Where does Moka sleep at night?
Moka is used to sleeping on a bed as close to her humans as possible. She sleeps well and is a good girl.
How is Moka with current pets?
Moka loves to play! She's a ball of energy & happily plays and trots around with my dog, Tyke (10 months). It took a few days but she's learned that love and food are plentiful and now loves to snuggle with Tyke, meet other dogs and happy to share.
She has previously lived as an only dog but is so happy to have another dog to play with.
Is Moka clean indoors?
Mokka is clean indoors & goes out during the day to wee in the garden but at night prefers a little walk to have her last wee before bed.
Can Moka be left alone?
Moka initially paced and cried a little when left alone. She's an intelligent girl who goes looking for new things to play with... shoes, pens, letters etc. She understands 'no' but it can be a game to retrieve said item from her. She's a spirited, fun girl. She's quite calm to be left with another dog & wait patiently for her human to return.
Adopters will need to slowly increase the time she's left & leave something to keep her occupied (kong, snuffle mat etc). She's very bonded to her humans & will miss them when not around but always welcomes you home enthusiastically with a waggy tail.
How is Moka out on walks?
Moka loves long walks- the longer the better & much prefers being off lead to run off her energy. She sees walks as one big adventure & wants to meet everyone along the way. She's bonded with me very quickly and has been off lead - always looking to follow or return with my other dog when called.
How does Moka walk on the lead?
Moka is fine on a lead on pavements but pulls in open spaces as she's raring to run free. Training is ongoing to address the pulling but as she's very treat led, training is straightforward.
Has Moka met with other dogs?
Moka has met a lot of other dogs that were on and off lead and is very polite and sniffs hello. She can get a bit flighty if dogs are over enthusiastic or show any aggression.
How is Moka with humans?
Moka is a real sweetie & is keen to meet everyone & is very gentle with children, although can jump up in excitement but stops when told no. She's interested in what I'm doing at all times so will follow me everywhere- keen to see what's happening.
Have you noticed if Moka is afraid of any particular things?
She can bark at sudden movements or loud noises but is soon settled with reassurance.
Any other useful information ?
Moka had a brain disease episode at the end of August this year that has left her with a slight head tilt but got the all clear from vets a month later. It doesn't affect her other than the head tilt.
She hasn't been tested with cats, her previous owner said no to cats as may chase.
What is Mokas ideal home?
Moka would love a calm home with a similar sized dog. She loves to play for hours and I think will take confidence/follow the lead of a calmer, well trained dog. She
She's jumpy around strangers in the home or sudden/loud noises so children need to be 10+. Overall a calm home but with an active outdoor life with plenty of walks.
She's an absolute joy to have around and would make a wonderful addition to any home.
She loves to play & be in the receiving end of a good chest rub and snuggle up on the sofa.
Moka is ready for a new forever home, she bonds quickly, is incredibly loyal and will give her adopters love and affection by the bucket load.
