My Story

Date into Rescue: 6/5/21

Reason for being in rescue: owner release

Special Needs: Mozart is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and heartworm negative. On 6/9/21 he had a dental and lost 4 teeth. Our vet noted some mild staining on his teeth and recommends that Mozart will need dentals annually moving forward. Mozart also had his ears professionally cleaned while he was under anesthesia. Our vet noted that Mozart is underweight. MOZART AND BERT ARE A BONDED PAIR LOOKING FOR A HOME TOGETHER.

What kind of home would be best for me: Mozart and his best friend Bert arrived in rescue when their owner passed away suddenly in a tragic accident. They have been very loved and well cared for and are looking for a quiet home that will offer them the same. First and foremost, Mozart and Bert are a bonded pair. We will not separate them. If you don't have room in your heart for these 2 precious souls, Mozart is not your dog. They would be okay with another senior, low energy dog or even a cat. Mozart and Bert want lots of soft beds, plenty of affection and a home that will help them heal their hearts.

What is my personality like: Mozart and his best friend Bert are looking for a retirement home! Mozart is lower energy but is relatively active for his age and still likes to go on walks, explore new things, and make new friends (people and dogs). Of course, though, it doesn’t take much to get his energy out and he likes to take lots of naps thorough out the day.

When you first meet Mozart he might be a tad skittish but that doesn’t last long. Pull out a bag of treats and start petting him and you’ve made a new best friend.  He’d appreciate a home with lots of comfortable places to sleep (couches, fluffy beds, etc..). He loves people and it’s frequent to see him wanting attention from  his caregivers. He likes to play any game that involves lots of treats! He’ll convince you he’s starving if he knows you’ll give him more!

Mozart could use some work on potty training but he’s a smart dog and routine will help him in his home greatly! He does okay on a leash. Mozart and Bert are both okay with other dogs in the home so long as the other dogs are respectful of them (lower energy dogs). We frequently find Mozart and Bert side by side on the couch in one of our offices. When they are, Bert likes to keep one paw resting on his BFF's leg.

How do I act when I first meet new people: Friendly

Tips and Tidbits: Mozart's estimated birthday is 1/6/2010

House trained: Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.

Thank you for considering CPR!
