BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — Have you seen Moose?

The 3-year-old Terrier-Dachshund mix has been missing from her Bedford-Stuyvesant home since Oct. 28, according to her owner, Lindsay Adams.

While walking Moose near Madison Street and Bedford Avenue, the pup was “spooked” and slipped out of her collar, Adams, 29, said.

She and her wife are worried because of the dog’s skittish nature.

“She’s really scared of everything,” Adams said. “She hates subway grates, she hates loud noises, she’s not really a big fan of people. She’s friendly but she has a lot of fear.”

The couple adopted Moose from Brooklyn’s Sean Casey Animal Rescue shelter when she was 6 months old.

The dog was originally picked up from a kill-shelter in Texas by a Dachshund rescue group and ended up in New York City, according to Adams.

“We walked around the shelter for a minute and she was just laying there,” she recalled. “We met eyes and I just fell in love right away.”

Adams, who is a big fan of the show “Frasier,” said Moose takes her name from the canine performer who played the dog Eddie Crane on the sitcom.

Moose is microchipped, loves to run and has a lot of energy, Adams said of her dog.

She’s received a few calls from residents who said they’ve spotted Moose around the neighborhood, including sightings at Madison Street and Patchen Avenue and another at Myrtle and Bedford avenues.

Locals like Clinton Hill’s Ted Allen, host of Food Network’s “Chopped,” have joined in to share a flier to help find the pup.

“When people have seen her they say she looks terrified and is just running,” Adams added. 

She advises that those who encounter Moose not chase her but instead quietly follow the dog, or gently approach her by calling her name with food.

“She’s like our kid, we take her everywhere we go,” her owner said. “It would mean everything to us if she’s found."
