OCALA, Fla. — Despite all odds, Mojo the Border Collie has gotten lucky not once but twice, in finding a loving home to live out his senior years. The twelve-year-old dog suffers from the rare genetic condition, short spine syndrome, but that hasn’t stopped him in winning over hearts since he was first abandoned in an Ohio shelter in 2012. When Mojo was eight-years-old, he was rescued from the shelter by a woman named Maria Rall, who instantly fell in love with the dog upon seeing him on Facebook.
Rall was planning on providing Mojo with the stable, loving home he had always yearned, until a few months ago when she found out that she was terminally ill. After hearing the terrible news, Rall’s daughter set out to help find Mojo another home for when the time came that Maria could no longer care for him. Sadly Maria passed away in late April but a post on Facebook would soon help Mojo find another forever home. A woman named Rachel Bryant reached out to the woman who made the courtesy post for Mojo and offered to foster the dog for as long as he needed.
Fortunately only a couple of days later, veterinarian Dr. Robin Stamey reached out to Rachel and just knew that he would be the perfect fit for her and her wife. Rachel and Dr. Stamey each arranged a road trip to meet one other in Tennessee, where Rachel would hand over Mojo to his new home. Happily Mojo arrived in Florida with Dr. Stamey where he will now live out his days with his new moms and his cat and dog siblings. Check out Mojo’s sweet journey below.
