He's not as large as his name implies. But Moose has plenty of big energy he could bring, along with smiles, to any Montana household.

Moose was the latest guest in the KYSS studios this week as part of the Take Me Home Tuesday segment, presented by Paul's Pancake Partner in an effort to encourage local residents to adopt pets from the Humane Society of Western Montana's Missoula shelter.

Moose is originally from Havre and is looking for a new home after his last "foster parent" wasn't able to find a house that allowed pets.

"He's just shy of a year old," Jessie Mackay, Community Engagement Coordinator for the Humane Society told me during Daybreak with Dennis. "Like a lot of dogs, we see in Missoula these days it's so hard to find housing that allows pets."

"But he's a really lovely dog. He's good with all the people. He's great with kids. He loves other dogs."

Moose has that perpetual "puppy smile" and a beautiful brown coat with white accents.

Jessie says he doesn't necessarily need a lot of space but would be good to be with an owner that could take him out for runs and exercise. He's another in a line of great "trail dogs" we've been seeing from the shelter over the past several weeks.

If you'd like to adopt Moose, or any of the other wonderful dogs and cats at the Humane Society right now, you're invited to stop by the shelter just south of Blue Mountain Road on Highway 93 and get acquainted.
