Milo is a 9 year old neutered male that has no past or current medical issues that the previous owner is aware of. Previous owner received Milo from her parents 1 year ago but had to surrender due to landlord issues.
According to the previous owner, around strangers, Milo is shy for a few minutes then warms up and is very friendly. Around adults and children, Milo is respectful and playful and will play in a gentle manner. Milo has lived with one other small dog and was tolerant around the other animal. Milo has never interacted with larger dogs or cats so behavior is unknown. Milo does not have a bite history.
Previous owners stated that Milo doesn’t have any behavioral issues. He isn’t bothered when any food, treat, or toy are taken from him, having his coat brushed, when unfamiliar people approach the home or yard or when he is pushed or pulled off furniture. Milo does get nervous for baths and prefers not having one (will try to run away). According to the owner milo isn’t bothered when his back nails are trimmed but his front paws are too sensitive to trim and he will try to escape and run away.
For a New Family to Know:
Milo is described as friendly, affectionate, and playful. He has a medium activity level and loves to play with squeaky toys and fetch. When in the home, Milo is the type to follow you around seeking attention. He was kept mostly indoors and was fed pedigree dry & wet dog food. According to previous owner, Milo is house trained to relieve himself on wee wee pads in home. When outside, Milo usually goes to the bathroom on the grass or on the cement sidewalk when on a walk. When left alone in the home, Milo would be well-behaved. He knows the cues sit, down, shake, and kiss. For exercise, he enjoys slow & brisk walks and being let out in the yard to play. When on leash, Milo can pull slightly depending on how excited he is, and when off leash Milo wanders for a bit but then will come back when called.
Behavior during intake: Milo had a stiff body and was shaking during intake. Counselor was able to scan for a mc, collar and take a picture after a few minutes. He began to relax and sat on counselors lap after 5 minutes and allowed to be pet.
