Medical update:  Moose has had a coughing issue  since coming into our care thus we continued with further medial diagnostics which included  a visit to the cardiologist.  Unfortunately our sweet boy moose has been diagnosed with Mitral Valve disease.


What does this mean?  The prognosis is not as good as we were hoping for with the onset of the disease generally a dog has approx a year of life left.


While we are intensely saddened by the news we remain committed to help Moose live his best life possible.  This means he will require daily medication that will be expensed to Lab Rescue.  We are now looking to place Moose into a loving home that is local to our Oakville vet and who would be willing to bring Moose to monthly vet appointments so he can be closely monitored.

Hi Friends,

My name is Moose and I am a 10 yr old boy. I am coming to Lab Rescue as a stray. Even though I may be a senior I have plenty of energy. I enjoy going for short walks but can easily lay around the house and hang out.

Medically, I am healthy however do have a mild heart condition that I am taking medication for.  I'm also a little bit on the chunky side so would benefit from losing some weight to make it easier on my joints.

I am well mannered in the home but will require a house with limited stairs, and either carpet or plenty of runners as I am not good with the floor.

My foster family currently has a dog and there are no sharing issues between us. We don't play a whole ton but we enjoy one another's company. I have also met some other dogs and I'm good with them too!  Before I came to Lab Rescue I stayed with a wonderful woman for a few days that had 3 cats and I really enjoyed cuddling and hanging out with them.  I am not too sure what toys are so I haven't shown much interest in them.

My foster family says that I am just the sweetest boy. I am loving, affectionate,and full of cuddles. If you are looking for a companion that is affectionate and handsome I am definitely your boy.

Love, Moose
