Millions of people have fallen in love with Mo, a Pit Bull who “screams” like a person. The lovable, kind dog wandered up to Kristin Allen when she saw him in a park across from her home. After bringing him home, Mo made himself right at home.
But wanting to give his owners a second chance she brought him to a nearby animal shelter in case he had a family looking for him. She was thrilled when, a few days later, she could adopt him and take him home forever.
Shortly after she heard one of Mo’s “screams”.
“The first time he did his scream, he saw another dog and we all looked at each other like, ‘What was that?!’” she said. At first she and the dog trainer weren’t sure if his “screams” were a sign of aggression, but they quickly realized it wasn’t. It’s more his way of getting attention.
It turns out the goofy dog has a bunch of different ones. “I think it mostly sounds like a velociraptor scream,” she said in one video. “Other times, it sounds like a woman screaming.”
Since posting videos to Instagram Mo’s become known as “Mo the Screaming Staffy”. Check out the video below to hear some of Mo’s adorable screaming.
