Attleboro Pet of the Week - Moby Richard

Here is a wonderful prince charming dressed in fur seeking a dedicated family to call his own. Could that family be you?

Look into the eyes of Attleboro's very own Moby Richard.

Moby was found wandering the streets with no clue as to why
he was there with nobody by his side. He was picked up by Animal Control and put under quarantine in hopes his family would call to bring him back home. 

Unfortunately for Moby, that call never came. Once his quarantine period was over, he received his vaccinations and was neutered.

One thing we learned early on with the all-mighty Moby was he didn’t really know how to be a dog. We requested a professional evaluation with trainer Shawn Masterson of Alpha One K-9 Oasis so we could better understand our big, beautiful Moby and put a plan in place to help him blossom into the wonderful boy we knew was lurking inside. Thanks to our supporters, we raised enough funds for Moby to spend a couple weeks with Shawn at Alpha One K-9 Oasis to work on some of his manners and allow him some one-on-one time he longed for.

The Moby you see today is not the same dog that arrived with us back in July. He is now a dog who looks for that reward for his positive behavior and has blossomed into everything we knew he could be! Thanks to a plan, positive reinforcement and dedication from volunteers (especially his favorite volunteer Kelly Ramos), Moby is a dog who strives to please and is eager to learn. 

It is truly a blessing to watch a dog put his past behind him and focus on a positive future.

Moby is one of those half-serious, half-goofy kinda boys who will excel with an experienced family. He walks well on a leash and knows some basic
commands (sit, down, paw, leave it). He is neutered, heartworm and Lyme negative, up to date on vaccines (parvo, distemper, rabies, kennel cough) and micro-chipped. Moby also comes with a free training grant courtesy of "A Voice for Tyson" at Alpha One K-9 Oasis in Middleboro.

Next time you are out and about, swing by the Attleboro Animal Shelter and come see what we see—an amazing dog who deserves the companionship of a family all his own!
