Moira is a happy, enthusiastic pup who loves humans and other dogs. She is sweet and funny, strong, and very active. Moira requires physically active humans to help her enjoy swimming and the great outdoors! Despite her gentle sweetness, until Moira has benefitted from the above-described training, she will be too much for young children. She LOVES humans and LOVES to play with other dogs — a strong, fast!, obedient, well-adjusted similar-size dog playmate will help her settle into her new home. 
 
Please see Moira's video to fully appreciate how much she LOVES to swim! She needs a home with other dogs who love to hike and to swim daily.
 
If you believe you're a possible match for Moira, please complete an adoption application! Please include information regarding your experience with this breed, and also with raising and training a puppy.
 
IF YOU’RE READING THIS ON A PET SEARCH SITE, PLEASE PROCEED TO OUR SITE BetterDaysRescue.org for our fees/policies/procedures ...  Dogs remain posted while we screen potential adopters. As long as a dog is designated “Available” we continue to accept and review applications. We encourage you to register on our site and "Favorite" the dog(s) that interest you, so that you will be notified when bio or photos are updated.
 
We’re staffed by all volunteers and use an application protocol to handle all interactions about adoptable dogs. This system enables an efficiency that allows us to save and care for more dogs. Discussion about a dog - including scheduling an interview, home check, or other dialogue, cannot occur until we’ve received your completed adoption applicationNO EXCEPTIONS. Thank you! 

**IMPORTANT** 

  • "Companion animal" means, needs at least one other friendly, playful dog that lives full-time in the same household.
  • "Fenced yard" means, a backyard that is adjacent to and connected with your residence. (It does not mean a nearby fenced area/dog park.) 
  • Gates must have padlocks and thresholds (cement or buried pavers to prevent digging.)
  • Yard and patio must be free of debris and have room for dogs to run and play on a lawn and/or a very shaded area.
  • “Swimming pool” means an in-ground, year-round pool available to the dog daily or multiple times per week.
  • We do not place dogs in situations where there are "drained" or empty swimming pools, which are a fall hazard and contribute to the propogation of mosquitos.
  • Last and not least, we DO NOT adopt to students as we have found that they often do not know or anticipate where life is taking them next.
