SWEET MILO: 2 Year Old Black Male Lab / Shepherd Mix 52 lbs Neutered

Background: Milo was rescued off Craigslist from the pervious owner. The previous owner decided they should not have adopted a puppy. The current owner loves Milo but they work too much and want a better home for Milo. A home where he will get more exercise, which he needs. The current owners have done a lot with Milo. He has gone to training and knows: Sit, Stay, Down, Heel, Leave It, Wait, Off and Place. The owners describe him as a very sweet, friendly, and loving dog. Of course Milo is not perfect and is still a bit of a puppy and he will: jump up at times when greeting people, will dig in the ground – part of that is lack of exercise and will chew on non-dog items; again more exercise! Milo loves a good game of fetch and gets along with other dogs. The owner actually state he adores other dogs. He gets socialized on a regular basis with other dogs at the dog park and goes to doggie day care. Milo is great with children, tries to chase cats and will try to counter surf at times. He rides well in the car and will run along when the owner is riding his bike. Milo is an inside dog and is housetrained.

What Milo’s Rescue Rep says: We are looking for a home where Milo will get the attention and exercise, he needs. Currently the owners work a full schedule and then once off work it is not easy to get Milo out on a regular basis. Milo is a great dog and would make a great companion in many situations. He needs to continue his training and socialization with other dogs and be in a home that will make him part of the pack. Milo is a wonderful dog and can be in a home with kids older than 12 and other dogs; he would love another dog to play with. If you have another dog at home, it should be a younger dog that would want to play with Milo. When Milo met my two big crazy Labs he just wanted to play but respected my dogs and their energy. Milo is a puppy still and likes to test the boundaries but wants to do the right thing. He needs a home that will put in the time to be consistent with him and a home that will be his leader. Milo sleeps on his dog bed with no issues, he is a very affectionate dog, very strong dog and a very smart dog. He does get along with other dogs but at times when he does see dogs on leash he will start to bark. With no dogs around he will walk in a heel position. Milo will jump up on counters to see what he can get so he will need boundaries in the home.

Medical: Milo has no health issues. He is neutered, up to date on his shots, heartworm negative and is microchipped.

Milo is currently located in: Napa
