I Need a Special Home!
Milo was born November 22, 2014 and weighs about 58 lbs. He came to us as a 'Pocket Pitbull' cute name for an English Bulldog/Pit mix and someone probably paid way too much! These cute combo names and the breeding of them just makes us sad. Sad for the dogs because humans purchase them with no clue of their pending traits or health issues and so many end up homeless. Sad for the humans who have to give up their adult dog because it turned into a breed that was inappropriate for their lives - breed matters. He lost his first home at 2 years old due to a divorce, he lost his most frequent home due to a small bite of a 3 year old child. So we are looking for an adult home, other dogs are just fine and we are told he did great with the cats in the first home. He has been on many RV adventures and loved them greeting strangers happily, he is wonderful about his crate, knows basic commands and is a couch potato. He loves to go for walks, is good on leash, and is house trained. He is fun and funny when in the right environment. OK, so now for the other part of Milo. He has chronic ear and skin infections, probably relating to allergies, perhaps food. He was eating Alpo, which is just AWFUL food and like us eating at Burger King everyday (sorry, Burger King)! He needs to be put on a high quality, grain free, no food coloring, diet to see if this helps with both skin and ears, but at first and, perhaps, for awhile he needs to be kept on meds to control the bacteria and we feel we smell yeast which tends to creep in after a bacterial infection. On top of this he is HIGHLY aggressive at the vet's office. So, we have decided to throw all this out there and see if there is a special human for him. He is going to need someone with patience, a relatively quiet lifestyle and in a good financial situation to care for him, likely, on an ongoing basis. We let Milo know we are trying to make the third home a charm!!! The Adoption Fee for this dog is $75.00.
Adoptions fees vary based on adoptability. In general our fees include spay/neuter, all age appropriate vaccines, Home Again micro-chipping & registration, worming & flea control - a 'complete' pet. We accept CASH or Visa/Mastercard ONLY.
Joyful Rescues has no funding except for our adoption fees and miscellaneous donations. Pet care and vet bills are expensive - you must be ready to take on this financial (as well as emotional) responsibility.
YOU MUST BE AT LEAST 25 YEARS OF AGE TO ADOPT A DOG FROM JOYFUL RESCUES
We keep our pet list as up-to-date as possible. As soon as a pet is adopted, it is removed from the list. If a pet is still showing, it is still available for adoption.
Our primary goals here at Joyful Rescues are to re-home pets and save them from becoming homeless in the future, educate the public on pet care and spaying/neutering to control the pet overpopulation, to spay/neuter every pet before they leave us and spay/neuter as many pets, belonging to the public, as possible within our means.
