Mochi was raised to be a service dog for his elderly owner, but she quickly realized that the 8-month-old dog was too energetic for her, and she couldn’t keep up with him. In July, she decided to try and find him a new home and made a post online, and as soon as Forsyth saw it, she knew Mochi was the dog she had been waiting for.
“She was very invested in him and obviously cared for him a lot,” Forsyth told The Dodo. “She spent lots of time with him as she had multiple disabilities that restricted her movement and lifestyle. We were very thorough in our adoption process, asked lots of questions and saw all of her paperwork. I saw the post on Wednesday, we met him Friday, and he came home with us Sunday afternoon.”
