Animal ID: 6295Mojo Desi Dog (male)

Whippet Mix    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet the unstoppable Mojo Desi Dog! Mojo is a two year old mixed breed boy who weighs in at about 50 pounds. The first thing you will notice about Mojo is that he is missing one of his front legs -- the second thing you will notice is that it doesn't hold him back a bit! Mojo is enthusiastic and ready to take on whatever adventures life throws his way -- and he can walk, run, jump, and chase squirrels just fine without that leg. Mojo's life began as an unknown and unwanted street dog in New Delhi, India (these street dogs are known in India as 'Desi Dogs'). When his leg was injured he could no longer survive that way, and caring people in ... (Read More)India helped him find his way to OPH. He has adapted easily to life in a home, and has fitted himself well into the routines of his foster family! His true breed mix is impossible to know because of his background - his veterinary paperwork lists him as a lab-whippet mix, but his curly tail suggests some other breed in the mix! Why chose Mojo as your new addition? - He's a sweet, cuddly, happy-go-lucky dude. - House trained - Crate trained. - Gets along well with other dogs he knows, but would do fine as an only pet. - Respectful of kids in his foster home - Rockstar snuggle buddy for those cold days - Will diligently guard your home from cat invasions (no homes who have small animals on purpose!) Desi Dogs make wonderful additions to our OPH adopters' families. They are smart loving and loyal pets! Because of the Desi Dogs' unique history and background, Mojo's potential adopters will need to have some training set up and ready to help him continue to make the transition from street dog in India, to spoiled dog in the US. The training will only ensure his continued progress in becoming a perfect member of your family! Mojo is neutured, microchipped and up to date on vaccinations and monthly preventatives. Apply to adopt him today! https://ophrescue.org/dogs/5481 Operation Paws for Homes is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization devoted to the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of dogs from high kill shelters in the south.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Whippet in Virginia
    Whippet Dogs can make good pets in Virginia if they match your IifestyIe. The Whippet is a small, elegant, Greyhound-like breed. Whippets are calm and affectionate. Whippets are excellent with respectful children and get along fine with dogs. A Whippet is not a good choice for a home with non-canine pets. Whippets need to be protected from extreme cold. With enough exercise, a Whippet does fine in an apartment or a home with a small yard.
