Mojo is a 10-year-old miniature schnauzer surrendered by his "family." They sent a photo of a healthy dog. When they dropped him off his coat was long and matted with thorns and brambles, his nails were curled under his feet to his pads, and he was skin and bones. He had an undiagnosed UTI and diabetes. His teeth are in such bad shape that the vet says the only thing holding them in is plaque. He has cataracts and evidence of an traumatic eye injury that went untreatedand has scarred over. Mojo is here courtesy of Friends of Jessamine County for some TLC; when he's a little better and has more weight on, the vet will do his teeth and microchip. Then he'll be ready to find that special REAL family who will love him as he is for the rest of his life.
As you can see from his video, he wants to love and trust again. He's afraid, but seeks every day to overcome his fear through trust. Every now and then he's confident enough to voice his opinions. He's learning to be OK outside (we think his "family" tossed him outside and left him there when he started "getting old") and gets along well with my female schnauzer (who is possessed of many good social skills) and my male schnauzer (who is mostly concerned with having fun regardless of whether his friends are enjoying his nonsense). We do not know his experience with cats, but he is overall a level-headed, sweet old man who relishes kindness and routine.
See Mojo's ongoing story, photos, and videos at MojoLives.weebly.com... and THANK YOU!
*NOTE: I am fostering Mojo for a local rescue group. That rescue group is not officially requesting donations, but all funds will go directly to the rescue to be applied towards Mojo's medical bills.
