Very intelligent dog and a fast learner. Mojo has had a difficult life, much of it in a shelter before coming to New Horizon. Under foster care, his personality has flourished. Mojo loves to be around people and is the life of the party. He is affectionate, but not a big licker. He would rather sit next to you (or perhaps on you) for back or belly scratches.
Mojo has been leash-trained and is going through additional training to walk at a heel and learning quickly. Mojo is over a year, but still plays with that puppy charm (running after toys, etc). If you are active, Mojo is a great jogging buddy or hiker. Mojo does need toys and outside play to run off that puppy energy. Mojo loves to play with other dogs and go for long walks to meet new people along the way. Mojo has very soft, short hair. NOTE: he does not like the rain and can get chilly during winter mornings/evenings.
MOJO was not afforded the proper heartworm prevention previously and tests positive. He is currently on the Gentle Kill regime which will render him heartworm negative within 6-8 months.

About New Horizon Dog Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

New Horizon Dog Rescue pulls animals from high-kill shelters, those that are scheduled for euthanization, those that otherwise had no chance. The animals are immediately veterinarian examined. The animals are further tested for heartworm, administered the necessary vaccines and are spayed/neutered when applicable.

We are volunteers who devote to the ultimate goal: placing the animals in responsible, loving homes, where they have always been meant to be.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We have various satellite facilities (foster homes) throughout west central Florida. Appointments are required. We strive to be flexible to accommodate the public's schedule.

Our Adoption Process...

A preliminary phone interview. Verification from condo or apartment of breed and/or weight restrictions. Adopter must commit to provide heartworm prevention monthly. Adopted animals must be consistently provided only high quality foods.
