found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, and not good with cats.
Milo is an active, athletic dog. He loves to run, play, swim, and fetch. Although he is a higher-energy dog, Milo is calm and very well behaved in the house. He is fully house trained, does not counter surf, and is not at all destructive. During the week, Milo is crated with his favourite toys and a frozen stuffed kong. When his foster parents are home, Milo has full access to the house and sleeps on his dog bed at night. He currently lives with another dog and he gets along great with her; their favourite game is to chase each other around in the yard. In the car, he is calm and quiet and will lie down to enjoy the ride. He is eager to please and has excellent listening skills. He is a very smart pup and picks up new tricks or commands very quickly. He would likely excel at dog sports such as agility and Rally-O.
Milo was never properly trained, socialized, or exercised by any of his previous owners and this has resulted in a number of correctable behavioural issues. All of these problems can be reversed through positive-reinforcement training, patience, and a stable home environment. He has already made amazing progress in his foster home. Milo walks well on-leash with the use of a front clip harness. However, he has a common problem known as leash-frustration when he sees another dog. He will bark, whine, and lunge at other dog’s on-leash. Although this may be interpreted as aggression, he is just really excited and frustrated that he cannot go and say hello to the other dog. When he is off leash, Milo is very good with other dogs and visits the dog park regularly where he is well-behaved and playful. He needs to be taught how to be calm and relaxed when he sees another dog on-leash. Milo can also be protective of his people and will bark forcefully when someone new comes to the door. He is a friendly dog, but needs to learn proper greeting behaviour. Due to his high prey drive, it is recommended that he not go to a home with cats.
Milo has a ton of potential to be an amazing dog. He would be a great companion for an active family who are looking for a smart and loyal furry friend.
