BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — A puppy named Mojo is missing in Brooklyn, leaving his 1-year-old owner awaiting his return.
The 11-month-old Poodle-Yorkie mix was last seen on the corner of Franklin Avenue and Madison Street on July 20, wearing a blue collar with white bones on it, according to owner Lawana Ross.
Flyers have been posted along the subway stations at Franklin and Nostrand avenues, as well as bus stops and lamp posts along the corridors.
Ross adopted the rescue dog in December 2014 as a gift to her 1-year-old daughter, Peyton, she said.
“That’s her baby," Ross said. "She walks him, she likes to read to him while they lay on the floor together, and he sleeps under her bed."
“She’s still learning how to talk but she knows how to say ‘Mojo.’”
Peyton still calls for Mojo, throws Cheerios in his cage and searches for him, Ross said.
“She knows he’s missing, she knows something is different,” she added.

The family is concerned for Mojo’s health, as he has severe allergies that cause his eyes to swell shut, the owner said.
The pup was on a strict routine of taking medication twice a day.
Mojo is microchipped, but has not turned up at any local pounds or shelters, Ross said.
“I’m hoping someone will have a heart and return my little girl’s dog.”
