Owner Dubs Her "Miracle" Dog as "the Happiest In the World"

 

26-year-old Jennifer Osborne found Moose, an Australian Cattle dog, in a pet store in 2016, says Lucy Middleton of the UK’s highest-circulating newspaper, Metro. Osborne took the dog home because she believed it could have been abandoned or might be put down. However, Moose’s health complications emerged when he was six months old. Despite that, not once did Osborne regret her decision.

The 26-year-old explains, “We know that Moose’s nose was pushed into his skull which caused the under-bite, crooked nose, deformed skull, deformed brain and eye issues – probably when he was still in the womb.” Moreover, Moose also suffers from seasonal allergies and cherry eye. The latter refers to a condition that “causes his tear ducts to protrude from his eyelids.” Moose also experienced having convulsive seizures in April 2018. Hence, he needs to take medication to fight them off. 

The seizures affect Moose’s whole body, causing his left body to twitch and his mouth to foam. “At his worst, he had three in 30 hours,” Osborne adds. Since Moose started the medication, he has been “on a low dose of Phenobarbital” to keep grand mal seizures away. However, he continued to have focal or partial seizures that would last for hours “every so often.”

It is possible for the dog’s seizure to escalate, but his neurologist doesn’t think it will shorten his life span, Osborne explains. Osborne enjoys taking photographs of Moose and posting them on his Instagram account, where he has amassed over 92,000 followers. In some of the photos, Moose is seen wearing glasses or a tie. He receives hundreds of compliments, in particular, his “permanent grin and mismatching eyes.” 

According to Osborne, Moose is the happiest dog she has ever met and she is blessed to have an amazing pet in her life. Osborne shares, “By the way Moose acts you wouldn’t think his brain had any issues. He is extremely intelligent, has so much personality, and loves everyone especially his mama.” Despite Moose’s peculiarities, she describes Moose as “literally a miracle.”
