When can you catch this dog screaming? According to azcentral, Mo screams at pigeons, cars and people passing by, and it’s his “preferred form of getting attention.”


Before Mo Became Internet Famous


According to azcentral, Mo was found by his owner a little over a year ago. He was "wandering the streets of Phoenix without a home during one of the city's hottest summers on record."


Kristin Allen, his owner, called him over, and he wagged his tail the whole way. Allen wanted to make sure that a family wasn't looking for him, so she "took the advice of the animal care workers and decided to leave Mo for 72 hours—enough time to make sure his owners weren’t out there somewhere."

In three days, no one came to claim Mo, so he was immediately adopted by Allen. The rest is history.


This Is Just the Beginning

On the way home, Mo gave a good 'scream' in the car. According to azcentral, this is Mo's hysterical way of getting attention.
