Meet Magnificent Mozart. He's a classic who'll make your heart sing! Just look at his face! He is a grey, scruffy fluffer-nutter. We think he is a Dachshund as he rides a bit low to the ground. We also think he is Schnauzer due to his coloring and terrier looks. If we were to guess his breeds, we would say Schnauzer, Dachshund and Terrier (maybe Norwich Terrier). It's hard to say without a DNA test. And Mozart won't tell us anything about his parents. :)

Mozart is an adult fellow who likes other friendly low-key dogs like himself. He is a gentleman with cats and is even polite to bunnies. His foster mom says: "He loves to play & loves to be in your lap or near you whenever you're in the yard. He's good with all animals. He's crate-trained too and likes his crate."

In his foster home, he's mellow, sweet, a perfectly behaved guest! But he has a secret....he is a silly sweet affection monger! Yup, this little dude is a kissing fool. And once kiss from this little scruffy dude and your heart will be his.
Since we all know NO ONE is perfect, Mozart does have one issue he is working on. Some time in his past he must have had a bad experience. (Maybe he was hit, kicked, screamed at...we just don't know.) He sometimes gets frightened when strangers approach him too quickly. He gets "grumbly" if he is scared (and will growl/bare his teeth as a warning). We have been working with a dog behaviorist on his fear. Mozart is looking for a home that understands his past and that sometimes strangers reaching for him scare him. Mozart needs a home that will continue working with him to help him be the best boy he can be.
Mozart would do good as an only dog, or with another cat or small dog to keep him company. The most important thing Mozart needs is for his person to be consistent with Mozart. He tends to bond to one person. While he likes his foster mom and dad, Mozart is VERY bonded to his foster mom. If you are a single person looking for a dog to bond with AND you can be consistent with his training, Mozart will be your best friend for life.
