Milo's Info...

Milo's Story...
Why Choose me?
Milo is an owner surrender who is here because his owner said he couldn’t take care of him any more. This could mean a lot of things, maybe an owner who is too busy, or ill, or needs a more sedentary type of dog. The owner surrender form didn’t have a single complaint about him, and said that he was an inside dog with nice house manners. Milo is also already neutered, which is the sign of a good owner and an expense his new owner won’t have to bear. Milo hadn’t been here long when I met him so he was quiet and scared, but in a gentle way, not a tense way. He obediently came out of his kennel on his own, and he was comfortable with leash walking and wanted to be near us in the interaction pen, but he was a too scared to really let his hair down. In the pen he was gentle and submissive, enjoyed being petted, and was only mildly interested in the dog in the adjoining interaction pen – just enough to say hi nicely, but not ready to have a nasal conversation. (Dogs at the pound converse a lot through their noses.) I hope I can come back in a couple of days and spend time with Milo again when he’s more comfortable – I really want to see that tail do the 90 mile an hour wag of joy that pitbulls are famous for The pound is completely full right now, and as an owner surrender Milo is at the top of the list to be euthanized if room has to be made for a new dog. This would be a tragedy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Athens 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 Athens 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 Pit Bull Terrier breeders who help with Pit Bull Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Athens paves the way for another one to be saved.
