MOSS is a 12 month old Collie X boy

He has a lovely temperament, he is soft and gentle and loves people. He is a real gentleman, has nice manners and really wants to do the right thing, he will form a very close bond with his family, when he finds them!

Moss is great with other dogs of all sizes and loves to play. He is currently in foster care with two small dogs.

Moss is good with cats too! In fact he’s a bit scared of them, when we tried to introduce him to big guy Johnny cat he was keen to get as far away as possible lol.

Moss loves company and would not do well home alone for long periods of time. So a standard 8hrs/5 days a week would not work for him. He can also jump in order to find people if left alone, he doesn’t go far, but does need to be secure inside the house or in a covered run if left alone.

Some of the photos here are from his journey up to Warkworth from the pound, he travelled really well.

He is very well behaved and sleeps quietly at night.

More photos and videos of Moss can be found on our Instagram page @aran_rescue

As with all ARAN dogs, Moss must sleep indoors and live inside the house with his family. He must never be kept chained up.

Moss is de-sexed, vaccinated, microchipped and registered and is up to date with flea/worm treatments.

There is an adoption donation of $300.00 to help towards these costs.

Moss is located in Warkworth, north of Auckland.
