found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Miles' Foster Mom Says: Miles just came into foster, but we already have info from the volunteer (and former foster) who pulled and kept him overnight for us. She wrote the following: "Miles is such a good dog . . . He's doing great with Connor and Kringle. I am keeping their time very limited because Miles hasn't been vetted yet, but I was curious to see how he interacted with my boys. He shows no aggression when you put your hand near his food bowl or toys. He knows basic commands of "sit" and "down". Walks pretty decent on a leash and pulls very little. He is a strong boy and just needs some TLC. His paws are stained a little. He prefers Bob to me. He was badly in need of a bath -- and I think we washed 2 years of dirt off of him! He even let us shampoo him twice, and then condition his coat. He has burrs in his tail, but he won't let me mess with them. He cries. I have only gotten two of 15 out; didn't want to push that with everything he's gone through. He appears to be housebroken!
Miles is very observant of his environment. He has medium energy, but seems to know when it is appropriate. When we ate dinner, he layed by our feet very careful not to mooch. To me, this is very important. He wasn't jumping around, or putting his head on the table or anything a dog without manners may do. He knows "go outside", and "go for a walk". I think Miles is a very appropriate name. He must have traveled MILES from home, because there is no way his previous owners don't miss him like crazy. He must have been so far from home, they didn't look far enough.
He came here unsure of where he was, but wagged his tail once he realized that he was going to a house. He sat in front of the door, and couldn't wait to get inside. After his bath and feeding him, he finally got a chance to settle down and hang out with all my dogs. They all got along great. They wanted to play for hours. Once I put my dogs away for the night, Miles finally got a chance to rest. He laid out on the floor, and all you heard was a huge sigh. Almost as if he was on vacation from such a hard life. As he slept, you could hear him whimper as if he was having a nightmare. Perhaps it was about being kenneled, or not being with his owners. When he came to us the outside of his eyes were a bit bloodshot, like he hadn't slept in days. Once he got a full night in a comfortable environment, his eyes looked better and his attitude was so content.
He was so excited to get out of his crate in the morning. He did very well in the crate overnight. We only heard three cries, and then silence. He didn't make a peep until the morning when he heard me shuffle around. We had to start our transport early, and get on the road. We actually miss him, and he was only with us for 24 hours. Anyone who is lucky enough to get this dog in their home with their family is very lucky. They will end up with a wonderful companion for life. He is so beautiful, and smart. I have to tell you, I almost kept him!
Updates: Coming soon!
This dog's adoption donation is $250. If you know how much it costs to give a new dog responsible vet care, you can easily see that this is quite a bargain! He has had a complete health exam, has already been neutered, is microchipped, has tested negative for heartworm, has been kept on heartworm and flea preventative, is fully vaccinated and free of parasites.
