But I digress.
I want the gals of a, ahem, certain age to think back to the time you first
realized that even the upper age of the people on IMBd’s Young Actor’s list is
closer to your children’s/nieces’/nephews’ than your own. It might have been
then that you first began to understand the value of, um, maturity while still
appreciating boyish charm, perhaps marked by a valiant struggle to render
admiration for the Hemsworth brothers dignified. And it might well have been
the first time it occurred to you how amazing it would be to find both maturity
and boyish charm in the same package.
Fans, Milo understands and wants you to know he has captured the essence of both.
Milo is a 40-odd pound Lab/Chow mix somewhere in the nine-year- old
range, who happens to be blind, but that doesn't slow him down any. Some of the life lessons he’s picked up along the way are house training,
being good with other dogs, and even being totally okay with cats. And people!
Milo is so okay with people that he aspires to an ambassadorship should there
ever be a presidential candidate who isn’t an embarrassment. He can also hang
out on his own day or night with the house looking just like you left it when you
While these are clearly his mature traits, be aware that Milo also drips
boyish charm. His fur is always fashionably tousled and, let’s face it, there’s not a
tat out there that can compete with a black-speckled tongue. He is completely
fine with being the center of your world and is more than happy to give you a
nudge in the unlikely event you overlook hugging him for extended periods. Milo
Looks forward to regular walks and is also something of a conversationalist.
Milo’s gunning for a home with a similar balance of dignity and shameless tail wagging.
Milo is currently being fostered in CT and is availible for adoption in surrounding staes and all New England. Please apply to adopt at www.bigfluffydogs.com and email email@example.com
If you are interested in adopting this dog, please apply online, at http://www.bigfluffydogs.com/online-app.php. Our main website, www.bigfluffydogs.com has more information about us and the rescue process. NOTE TO EMAILERS FROM ADOPT-A-PET: WE DO NOT RESPOND TO EMAIL INQUIRIES WITHOUT AN APPLICATION. WE REGRET WE CANNOT RESPOND TO EVERY EMAIL, BUT UNLESS YOU FILL OUT AN APPLICATION, WE DO NOT KNOW YOU EXIST. All known information about an individual dog is provided in it's listing. We do our best to provide accurate information, but adopters must understand that each home is different and the dog may behave differently in a new home. Dogs are creatures of their environment and you help make the dog what it will be. Homes considering adopting a puppy must be prepared for:1.) Flexible schedules for potty training. Puppies can only "hold it" for one hour per month of age (ex. a 4 month old puppy can only go 4 hours without a potty break).2.) Crate training until the puppy is at least one year old, to prevent chewing on inappropriate things when you can't supervise.3.) Socialization: The more positive and varying experiences as a puppy the better, both in and out of your home.4.) Puppy behavior and life stages are equivalent to a human toddler. It takes at least a full year to have a calmer, well adjusted dog. Patience is required and when your dog's behavior is a positive experience for you and those around you, your patience will be rewarded tenfold, for years to come.Please do not consider adopting a puppy if you have not thoroughly thought through the pros and cons of having one. So many people end up returning them after 3-5 months because they didn't realize the amount of work involved in raising a puppy.Patience, appropriate toys, socialization, and obedience training are all musts. All are time consuming, and can be expensive.All Dogs Require:Supervision with children and obedience training. Adopters that want to have good dogs must be prepared to put the time and effort into training a dog. Any dog requires work and effort, but a well trained, well socialized dog is more than worth the effort put in to get them there.
