01/24/2017 PET PROFILE MEMO
1/24/17 5:19pm Basic Information: Milo is an 11 year old Cattle dog/Shepherd mix. Per the previous owner, he has a lump on his right hind leg and another lump on the left side of his chest. Socialization: Milo has lived with several adults, a 14 year old boy and an 8 year old girl. Milo has also lived with cats for short periods of time, but has never lived with dogs. When Milo meets someone new, he likes to sniff them a lot and likes to jump on them. Behavior: Milo tolerates cats but typically does not interact with them. Although Milo has not lived with dogs, he has been walked with other dogs and seems to get excited and wants to play with them – he is always wagging his tail with soft body language when greeting a dog on his normal walk. However, if there are people or animals passing the fence to his yard he starts to bark a lot. Milo played gently with the 8 year old girl in the home but did not get along well with the boy in the home from when he was little. On the leash, Milo pulls slightly and generally has a medium activity level. Milo tends to get possessive over bones, rawhide and any human treats given to him. For a New Family to Know: Milo does not like baths, he growls and doesn’t seem to like the bathroom but he seems to really like being brushed. Milo is very scared of fireworks and thunderstorms and hides when he hears them. Milo likes to be around people and is likely vocal when he is home alone; he really likes being in the same room as you when you are home. Milo always relieves himself outside, usually on the grass. He knows, sit, speak and paw – he doesn’t like to roll over, he seems to be uncomfortable when trying to roll on his back. Some games that Milo likes playing are, buring his rope toys, tug, chase and fetch, although he does not like bringing the ball back. Milo usually eats both dry and wet dog food mixed: Purina, Dog Chow or Alpo. Behavior during intake: Milo seemed uncomfortable and did not want to take a Milkbone treat from me. However, after spending some time with him, he started to take the treat and drop it. After a few times and spending some time with him, he layed down and ate his Milkbone treat. Milo seemed nervous but had soft body language and a low tail wag.
