Milo's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Milo's Story...
Milo is a gorgeous Harlequin Great Dane; he is neutered, healthy, and up to date on vaccines and preventatives. Milo is 3-4 years old and weighs about 95 lbs. Milo came to us after living his most recent life on a chain, so he needed a refresher on manners and good behavior. Because he is a giant dog who sometimes forgets his manners, he will not be adopted to a home with small children. We are looking for a dog-savvy home, with kids 14 and up.

Milo is generally good with other dogs, but he sometimes tried to be the "alpha" male with other large male dogs. For this reason, Milo is best suited for a home with an active female companion dog, or as an only dog.

Now, for the good part. Milo LOVES people. He is a very friendly, playful, happy boy, and he loves active play in the yard. He also loves to be snuggled with his people, and inside lounging on his bed. He's a very typical Great Dane - happy and quiet in the house, and has spurts of hilarious energy when out. Milo is immaculately housetrained, and is not currently crated when left alone. For some reason, his dog beds do occasionally spontaneously combust, but we've been working hard on this and his current record is 34 days with an intact dog bed :)

Milo's adoption requires a private, physically fenced yard. Sorry, we do't adopt to apartments with community dog areas, and we don't allow any type of shock fencing. A physical fence is required for ALL adoptions through Almost Home. Please don't ask to be the exception.

Milo will be adopted within one hour's drive of Murfreesboro, TN. This is both due to our home visit requirement (completed by the dog's actual foster), and due to the fact that we want to be able to retrieve our dogs quickly should the placement not work out. Please, don't ask to be the exception.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Milo, a Murfreesboro Great Dane dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Great Dane for sale in Murfreesboro, or seeking a Great Dane dog from a breeder in Murfreesboro.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Murfreesboro already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Murfreesboro breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Great Dane breeders who help with Great Dane rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Murfreesboro paves the way for another one to be saved.
