adoptable dog Moses

We’ve partnered with Pawsitive Alliance for the #WhyNotMePets campaign to give difficult-to-home pets an extra paw up. These lovable pets are ready to find their forever homes. 


Breed: Border Collie Mix

Age/Gender/Size: 4  years/Male – Neutered/Medium (under 50 pounds)

Likes: Car rides, leash walks & chatting with the family!

Special Considerations: Recovering from a pelvis injury; no small kids

If you are looking for a new furry friend with a sweet & sunny disposition, look no further than Moses!

Moses is a 4-year-old border collie mix who is currently living at the Yakima Humane Society (YHS) in Yakima, WA. He first came to the clinic after being hit by a car, which had resulted in a broken pelvis. This injury is healing very well and Moses does not display any pain or discomfort. In fact, the only way that one would know about his unfortunate accident is through his somewhat wonky walk and silly-looking sit – these traits only add to Moses’ charming character, however!

The clinic staff at YHS absolutely fell in love with this darling guy. He was loving and appreciative of his care from the get-go, despite the circumstances that had brought him in.

A little shy to start, Moses is quick to turn on the fancy and affection once he has gotten to know you. As is the case with many pets, a surefire way to gain Moses’ confidence is through his stomach – he is a treat fiend! The staff at YHS have noticed that treats go over especially well with Moses when he interacts with men. Moses has since made quick friends with the mailman, as well as male UPS drivers and animal control officers.

Moses loves going for car rides. You won’t have to worry about sharing the vehicle with a back-seat driver when he is riding, as he is a very polite passenger! He is also very good on the leash for leisurely walks about the neighborhood. Moses is very chatty once you get him going as well, so there will be no one-way conversations. He will do best in a home with a fenced yard and no small children. Though Moses ignores the clinic kitty at YHS, we are unsure as to how he would feel about a feline roommate.

Moses would love to have a “Meet N Greet” this summer with you at the Yakima Humane Society. His adoption fee is $175, which helps to offset the costs of evaluation, feeding, housing and medical care for so many more pets that need our help. For more information regarding the adoption procedure, please contact the YHS Adoption Lead, Kelly Shields at

Every Wednesday, Healthy Paws will highlight a new pet from Pawsitive Alliance’s #WhyNotMePets campaign. Visit the #WhyNotMePets page for a list of adoptable dogs and cats.
