Breed: Great Dane
Approx. Age: 4 1/2
Location: Harlequin Haven Great Dane Rescue, Bethel, Ohio (outside of Cincinnati)
Hobbies: Having attention lavished on me by adoring fans. I am a famous artist. I paint with my paws.
Favorite Foods: Cheese cubes and cheeseburgers.
Goals: To raise funds for the Rescue and raise awareness of the puppymill/petstore connection. Sales of my artwork help support the homeless dogs at the Rescue.
Likes: Painting, leaning on humans, and cheese cubes (I know it’s here 2x, but that’s how much I like them)
Dislikes: Cameras and camcorders. Everyone wants to see me paint but I can detect any camera and I go on strike! I also scrinch up my face and look away.
Biggest Fear: Floors. I’m a puppymill survivor and didn’t know what life was like outside a cage. I never learned to walk on a real floor until I was almost grown up.

Mozart recommends the following dogs who twitter for #followfriday:
- @BrunoTheDog because he was one of my very first pals online and he
has such a sweet personality.
- @misterpeabody because he is BIG like me–wait he’s bigger than
me–and he’s a great and sensible pal.
- @Johannthedog because he’s very very busy with agility and his Green
blog, and many other things (he makes me feel tired!).
- @SylvieDog because she is a coon hound, but doesn’t let that rule all
she does and she’s a caring and supportive friend.
AND all of the above pooches support Rescue!
