Mochi was abandoned in the dead of night but still loves everyone!


The basics

  • My name is Mochi
  • On my last birthday, I was 2
  • I am a girl
  • I've been homeless since August 15, 2018

The good stuff

  • My best trick is finding and chewing sticks!
  • Me in three words: happy, independent, gentle
  • How I feel about other critters: I love everybody! I may not be able to keep up all the time, but I skip along and try really hard to hang with the pack. I never give up!
  • My absolute favorite thing to do in the world is :sticks. You might not think sticks are *a thing* - but trust me, they are to me! I love sniffing them, chewing them, carrying them... I could chomp on a stick for hours. Adopt me and I'll show you. 🙂
  • This is what I dream about when I dream about my perfect person or family: a home where my humans will love and care for me no matter what. Special Pals took me in after I was thrown over their 8-foot gate in the dark of night. I have dwarf syndrome so my eyesight isn't very good and my legs don't move the same way as other dogs. Is that why my people threw me away? I landed at a very safe place, but I want a home! And even though I was abandoned so cruelly I still love everyone I meet. So come visit me; I'm sure I'll love you, too!

    Hello, I’m a Marine Corps veteran that has knee problems and absolutely fell in love with Mochi. Is there any way I could possibly get a little more information about her? Mostly her breed and size? That would be greatly appreciated.

    Mochi, you are beautiful, I hope you find your forever home soon. August 15 is my birthday so every year from today on I will make one wish for you and hope that by August 15 this year you have found your new home!

    With Love,
