Arrival Story: We were looking for a guardian dog, both for a little protection and to keep our Bernese Mountain Dog company while we were at work. We found Mosley living in a barn with 300 goats and his brothers and sisters. He was four months old and incredibly cute. He stayed by us the whole time and loved us petting him. When we took him home, he was terrified of everything and to some extent still is terrified. He smelled like 300 goats so he got a bath, which he did not like very much. He is named after the boxer, Sugar Shane Mosley.
Bio: He is very shy and really only likes our family and sometimes children, if they don't run after him. He loves our Bernese Mountain Dog, Hopkins, and for the longest time wouldn't do anything without him. Now he is more confident and tries to steal Hopkins' bones and toys. He is really sweet to us and it is heartbreaking to see how scared he is of new people. Once in a while he will settle down while a new person is visiting and will sniff them and take a treat. It is kind of ironic we wanted a guardian dog and we got a big baby! But we love him and he is family and he definitely barks at any sign of trouble. :)
