This little cutie’s name is Mojito, and he and his siblings were born after their mom accidentally got out of her yard and got pregnant.
When the dogs parents discovered that shed had puppies, they immediately decided they didnt want themand quickly surrendered them to Love Leo Rescue in Los Angeles.
The sweet little puppies are half pug, half Chihuahua affectionately nicknamed chugs and on top of being from an unwanted litter, Mojito and two of his sisters have black coats, which often makes it harder for a dog to get adopted.
Dogs with darker colored coats dont always come off as outwardly expressive as dogs with lighter coats, making it harder for potential adopters to see their awesome personalities shine through.
But just look at that darling face!
Mojito is the only male from the litter, and he is also the runt, said Sasha Rose, president of Love Leo Rescue. He is much smaller than his siblings, with shorter legs and a more pug-like face. He is the most affectionate of the crew though, and loves nothing better than snuggling in your lap.
Mojito and his siblings were with the rescue for about a month before the most unexpected person stepped up to adopt the little runt actress Hilary Duff.
Duff is an avid animal lover, and has a few other dogs in her home as well. She took to Instagram to announce how excited she was to welcome a new puppy now called Momo into her home.
Another win for black dogs everywhere, Love Leo Rescue wrote on its page.
Mojito has found his forever home…happy in the arms of Hilary Duff. This little chug went from unwanted to the best life ever. Thank you Hilary Duff for spreading the adopt dont shop message and welcoming Mojito into your family.
Not only will he be loved by Duff and her family, but by everyone who follows her on Instagram, helping to raise awareness about pet adoption.
He’s found the perfect home, and now hopefully this increased awareness will help others find their forever home, too!
