Man's Best Friend

Hi, my name is Moose. I am 1 1/2 years old lab mix. I am a very sweet and loving boy. I am looking for a family that will continue to spoil me. I am an indoor dog that loves to sleep in your bed and lay next to you on the couch. I do need another dog in my home, cause I don't like being by myself
I am very playful, I get along with other dogs. I am housetrained and crate trained, although I really don't like it. I love to go for car rides, especially when I get a cheeseburger as a treat.
I am neutered, microchipped and up to date on vaccines. Please add me to your family.
