Adoptable Animal of the Week: Mose

on February 8, 2011

Oakland North is continuing with our new feature. Every Tuesday, Oakland Animal Services will spotlight an “Animal of the Week” that’s up for adoption at their facility.  This week it’s Mose:

Mose is a German Shepherd who is just under a year old. He still has a lot of puppy qualities and loves to play with balls, tire toys or even the traffic cones Oakland Animal Services uses in their training class. Mose does really well when he is working or has a job to do, for example in training class he has learned “look,” “sit,” and “down.” He is now learning how to “stay” and walk by his handler’s side. Mose would do well in a home with someone who has experience with bigger dogs and who would continue taking him to training classes. Because of his size and puppy demeanor, Mose would do best in an adult home or one with older children. To see more photos and a video of Mose click here. Please consider giving him a home. Visit Oakland Animal Services at 1101 29th Avenue, Oakland, CA and ask to see Mose, his identification number is #33189. You can also go to

Part of the Oakland Police Department, Oakland Animal Services is both an Animal Control unit—which is in charge of the city’s public safety and animal welfare—and a shelter, which helps abused, neglected and abandoned animals within its facility.
