Mojo is a 10 yr old neutered Yorkie/Schnauzer mix. He was found on the streets of the Bronx in 2010. His owners are surrendering because of pet health costs and lifestyle change. Mojo is deaf in one ear after an operation and his other ear also needs to be operated on because of a narrow ear canal and chronic ear infections. Mojo’s owners had a baby, who will accidentally pull his ear or fur and Mojo gets very uncomfortable by this. His last visit to the vet was on Jan 2.
Around strangers Mojo is very friendly. He will bark and wag his tail and loves to be picked up. He has lived around a child but, as per his owner’s observations with their own child, Mojo should not be in a home with children. He plays gently with adults and other dogs. He lived with a Beagle, who died of old age, for 5 years. He was respectful/relaxed with her. He once ran away from home and was taken in by someone with two dogs. When reunited with his owners, they were told that Mojo and the dogs got along very well and shared one another’s food bowls! He has never spent time with cats or other animals. He has never bitten a person or animal.
Mojo has no behavioral issues, he sometimes barks. During storms/fireworks he isnt bothered. When someone touches his food, or bowl while eating/take away his bones/toys/ pushes him off the furniture/ disturbs him while sleeping/holds or restrains him/gives him a bath/ brushes him/ trims his nails he is not bothered. He will bark a little when someone unfamiliar approaches his house or family member but wags his tails and likes to sniff.
For new family:
Mojo is affectionate/friendly/playful. He is a low-medium activity level dog. Mojo’s owners would burp him when he was young after eating, and today he still comes over after eating and lets his mom know he is satisfied with a belch! He is a great lapdog and loves belly rubs. At home he follows his owners around. He loves chew bones and playing chase. He is kept mainly indoors with yard access. He likes to sleep in his kennel. He eats all kinds of dry food, 1/2 cup 2xday. He loves chew bones, cookies, sausage flavored treats. He is housetrained with no accidents. He goes on grass/cement. He is well-behaved when left alone. He is crate trained, up to 7 hrs. He knows all commands! He liked to be off leash and will wander but comes when called. He does not pull. He loves to bathe in the sun at home!
