Mozzarella and Pierogi (Dog)
Kyle Juszczyk has two Vanderbilt Samoyed dogs named Mozzarella and Pierogi. Juice got Mozzarella back in 2020. He got him a little sister in March 2023 and named her Pierogi. Priviously only owning cats, his wife Kristen convinced him to get his first dog after showing him photos of Samoyeds. In an interview with 49ers.com, Juszczyk said, “just instantly fell in love. I just thought they were the cutest things ever, which is very odd for me… I have never been into dogs before. We started seeing a bunch of them around Santana Row and every time we would see one we’d go chase after the owner and say, ‘Can we please pet your dog?’ and just ask a million questions. We absolutely fell in love.”
