Mio came into Dekalb Animal Control as a bite dog at only 12 weeks of age. He was quarantined for 10 days and his owner never showed up to reclaim him. Because of his bite dog status, Mio was labeled rescue-only and not made available to the public. We had a foster step-up and he got his freedom ride on May 8th, 2015. We named Mio after Mio Gelato up in New York … our favorite bakery.
Although Mio was considered a bite dog upon arrival at the pound, he was just a teething, mouthy puppy that did not know any better. He was a bit of an energetic, wild child. Mio is a fun, spunky guy who is sure to keep you laughing. He tends to be dominant and playful with other dogs, although he does play rough so he may be too much for some dogs. He lives in foster care with other dogs, but Mio chases the cats in his foster home so it would be better if there were no kitties in his forever home. Mio is crate-trained, housebroken, and has good house manners. He waits for his dinner at night and loves to play ball. He would love an active family with older children that could give him all the love he desires. Mio is a really goofy guy and is sure to keep you laughing!
