Miles's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Miles's Story...
Miles is a fairly mellow guy. He loves exploring outside and playing with other dogs. He is shy around new people and surroundings. He takes a while to warm up to you but boy when he does you have a friend for life, but you will need to be patient at first. He is about 95% housebroken. There has not been an accident in a week. He loves to be around people and other dogs. We have 3 other dogs around 45 lbs and he is very good with them. He is good around other people and kids it just takes him awhile to voluntarily go check out a new person. He is very playful with our family. He sleeps in our bedroom and loves to sneak into bed with us. When we are gone we leave him in a gated area. He goes to bed around 10:00 – 11:00 and is ready to get up and go outside around 7:00 am. He is getting good at walking on a leash.

Miles loves to play and snuggle and is very friendly. He is 4.5 months old and 22 lbs. Since we don't know at all what doggy genes are in the dogs make up (we don't know who mom and dad are!), we are just guessing on breed and size when grown.

All dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. They have all had a vet exam, are up to date on vaccinations, have been given a dewormer, are treated for fleas, have a heartworm test if over 6 months old and are up to date on a heartworm preventative.

Please note that because we require a home visit at the time of adoption we can only place animals in homes within a 60 mile radius of Minneapolis. If you are interested in meeting this dog please fill out the pre-adoption application on our website at http://www.safehandsrescue.org under Adopt and we will get back to you to arrange a meeting in the foster home.

We also have an Adoptable Dog Meet & Greet on Saturday November 12, 2016, at Fetch Delivers Warehouse, 783 Harding St. NE. Suite 150, Minneapolis, MN 55413, from noon - 2 pm. Occasionally dogs cannot make it to the Meet & Greet, therefore feel free to verify if your dog of interest is able to attend. Please bring a copy of your pre-adoption application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Miles, a Minneapolis Retriever (Unknown Type) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Retriever (Unknown Type) for sale in Minneapolis, or seeking a Retriever (Unknown Type) puppy from a breeder in Minneapolis.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis 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 Retriever (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Retriever (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Minneapolis paves the way for another one to be saved.
