Hello, my name is Miles. My Foster Mom named me Miles because it seems I traveled a few before finding her.
Sometimes life works in interesting ways. I found her walking and knew she would help take care of me. It seems I had been lost for some time and was about 15 pounds underweight and was in need of love. She brought me to her home, which is now my temporary home. I had to spend a few weeks at the “Animal Hospital,” apparently to play by the rules. I wasn’t to use to rules, but I have picked up quickly. I think someone must have loved me and worked with me at some point because I come when called, sit, shake and know what “down” means. I only use the great outdoors to take care of business. I have a Foster Dad and Sister, as well as a dog sister that I love. My Foster family takes me for long walks - I love that. I don’t play with toys - that is kids stuff. I like treats, hugs and praise makes me melt! I don’t share my food and I eat it really fast, I think it is because I was hungry for so long and am scared someone will take it away! I like when they pet me when I eat, but I am definitely not sharing. Maybe someday I will, once I can trust where my next meal is coming from for sure!
I don’t know how old I am, I never really kept track. The vet says somewhere between 7 and 9. I am healthy as far as I know. I have good energy, but my Foster Mom says, “Just the right amount!” I like to be close to my humans. I like to lay by their feet. I usually just fall asleep there - it feels so safe and warm. I weigh about 42 pounds, but will top out around 50, once I get fully nourished. I am neutered (11/18/2016). I sleep in a crate, but apparently that is not necessary it's just that I'm the new-by and have to earn the overnight trust!
Enough about me, how about you? Would you like a pal? That is what I am. I am company and not high need or high energy. I get excited to walk and can walk for days - apparently I already have! I am so darn sweet and managed to maintain that despite hard times. My Foster Family will cry when I leave, but they were not looking for me - I found them when I needed some help.
