“Go Bulldogs! I may love ice cream and bacon, but I love supporting my human brother when he is playing football at Brantley School even more. I never miss a practice. If you can’t find me at the football field, or at home chasing a laser pointer, then there is a good chance I can be located inside mom’s purse while we are out and about shopping. I go everywhere with her. I love playing with balloons and I have one at home that has a string attached to it. I love to take my balloon for walks all over the house. I am a one-year-old Yorkie Poo belonging to Rebecca Nelson and we live near Rose Hill. My real name is Moose but everybody calls me Moo because my fur kind of looks like a cow. I have 3 dog siblings and one human sibling.”

Moo’s mom said it was love at first sight when her family first saw him, and according to her is a hypoallergenic pup that does not shed.

Moo is the only inside pet in the Nelson household. He is not a picky eater at all and eats everything he can. He likes to play fetch and football with his human brother. 

Moo knows basic commands and will soon begin training to become a service dog.
