Meet Moana! She is a very shy but incredibly food-motivated pup who is eager for pets and attention. Moana absolutely loves her crate, using it as her safe space and happily sleeping there at night. When she feels shy, she retreats to her crate for comfort. She has no separation anxiety and gets along well with other dogs. Occasionally, she will bark if a dog invades her space, warning them to take a step back. She is most excited in the mornings when she’s let out of her crate, ready to play and start her day.

Moana also rides well in cars. Although she was a little nervous at first, she now hops into the back seat with no problem. Her foster brother, Milo, has been a great learning example for her, and she often follows in his footsteps, showing tremendous progress. Nearly fully potty-trained, Moana has not had an accident since her first three days in a home. Moana loves being outside on walks and eagerly scurries to the door when she sees her harness being taken off the hanger. She doesn’t pull on her leash and frequently checks to ensure you’re behind her.

If you’re looking for a sweet, food-motivated companion who thrives on routine and enjoys outdoor adventures, Moana might be the perfect addition to your family!
