My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Miles is 1 part performer, 1 part loving goof, and 1 part slobber. This big guy is a young 2-year-old boxer mix that's willing to work and earn your affection!

Miles' ideal home is an experienced family that has a soft spot for particular pups. He will thrive in an active home that can provide patience, routine, and structure. Miles wants a best friend that will be his advocate. Miles would do best in an only dog home, but is capable of coexisting with female dogs. He loves outings (going to parks, Home Depot, car rides, exploring the world).

Miles was saved from a local high kill shelter's euth list in April 2021. He was fearful of everything in the beginning. He was sent to training but unfortunately regressed without someone in his corner to keep him moving forward. Then he caught the attention of a local dog trainer that drove 9 hours to bring him home and personally make his priority to help Miles overcome his fears. Forgotten Coast Animal Rescue stepped up next to back Miles and help him find his people!

Miles has made absolutely stunning progress! In order to keep it that way, he must be adopted by an experienced owner willing to take it slow and build a bond. He opens up once he accepts you, which is easily accomplished through treats and basic obedience requests. Miles is EXTREMELY eager to please. He walks well on a leash, and has mastered all basic obedience commands in any environment.

Miles has certain routines that need to be respected. Until you build the bond with him, you will need to follow the routines to ensure his success. Initially, you can not take a toy from Miles. You will need to trade him, either a treat, another toy, or offer a walk. Miles does not like for you to put your hands in his kennel. He will easily go in guided with treats ( he actually goes in and then waits for treat.) If he is leashed, you must remove it before he enters. When in smaller spaces like an outdoor 5x10 dog run, he becomes possessive of that area. Do not pet him while in small areas at first. While in these areas he is also touchy about his food bowl. Water bowl is fine. During feeding currently, we drop a scoop in the bowl that's placed on the ground, or bring in a new bowl, while he's in a sit command, and release him to eat.

His trainer can personally do all these things suggested not to do and you will eventually be able to achieve the same. Initially though take it slow, build the bond, set him up to succeed.
