Meet Mozart, a Poodle cross Maltese cross maybe other bits. He’s missing one paw, not that you would notice if no one had pointed it out. And he just found a new home.
Whether Mozart was born with a missing paw, no one knows. He was checked into Blacktown pound last December and was rescued by Monika’s since.
I had the privilege to observe his adoption last Tuesday.
I set out with R&J from their residence in Burwood in the late morning and drove to Monika’s in Ingleside to meet a few dogs in need of a new home.
The first dog we met was Mozart. For R&J, it’s not so much in the case of whether they like Mozart, but it’s more of whether Mozart likes them - if they were lucky enough to have a dog pick them.
It was love at first sight when both parties met. Even when Mozart was taken for a walk in the surroundings to see how he would adapt to his potential new owners, he couldn’t keep his eyes off R&J.
2 hours later, Mozart was back home with R&J. It was clear that they were meant for each other. There were many hugs and cuddles and Mozart was clearly grateful to be in his new home. And he even met their resident cat, Big Ears, who warmed up to Mozart instantly.
I love a story with a happy ending. And I applaud R&J for adopting Mozart - I can see who Mozart considers his heroes.
Thank you R&J and Mozart, for giving me this opportunity to share a slice of your lives.
