Adoptable Dog: Moxie

Meet Moxie!

How did Moxie end up in the Forlorn Family?
Moxie, formerly known as Penelope, was surrendered to Henry County Animal Control. She belonged to a military veteran, struggling with his mental health. Moxie is deaf. He had her trained on a shock collar, but he let her off leash and would shock her at a high level until she cried in order to find her location. This poor man who served our country and was unable to take care of himself let alone a dog so Moxie ended up at Animal Control.

Crazy town.

How would you describe her in three words?
Energetic. Smart. Determined.

She loves to play with her kong toy!

Describe Moxie’s perfect day:
She loves to be anywhere where you are. She loves to snuggle, but is content to sit next to you and chew on her kong.

Describe Moxie’s ideal family:
She would love an active family. Her new family would also have to be understanding of the challenges that come with owning a deaf dog. Due to her high energy level small children may not be a good fit for her.
