Story
Milo arrived with us at the shelter November 9th, 2023- as an unruly pup 10 months old. He is incredibly smart and needs proper stimulation/ mental and physical stimulation. He needs a "Nothing in life is free kind of concept in any situation. Meaning he needs to work for what he wants to get; he cannot just have it. So, for example: sitting before going through doors, crossing roads, getting food. Just getting him to do tricks or commands for any task helps get him stimulated in a positive way. Milo would thrive in a mature household and with someone who is experienced with dogs.Some other Great outlets that work WELL for him are: PLAYING BALL: This benefits him by being interactive with him in a positive way. This teaches and keeps him interested at the same time learning to work with you. FIND IT GAMES: Hiding treats in a room or outside in a fenced area and just letting him use nose to find things, giving him positive feedback. Doing this daily would benefit him as positive stimulation for him. SNUFFLE MATTS are more ideas for "find it games." Find it games helps to focus his energy so that you can encourage, and reward positive behavior. KONGS and DOG PUZZELS, more ideas for excellent "find it" games. These are what he enjoys doing in his down time or in his crate. LOOK AT ME: To do this, do not say his name or make a noise, just wait him out. When you see Milo's eyes look at your face for even a quarter second, say your marker "yes!!" or use clicker. Give him a treat, move a couple of feet away and repeat. Doing this daily will benefit him in simple training ENRICHMENT: This is very important, this is a good way to make milo want to take you seriously and work with you- it helps to get over that adjustment "bump" of Milo getting into a new environment and become overstimulated with no outlets to go to. Milo is muzzled trained and learning to be crate trained. Milo is house broken and enjoys cuddles and belly rubs! Milo will not do well in a condo or apartment setting; he will need a house with a fenced area to play. Using these tools, Milo has completely turned around and has become a lovely dog! He will be a project but has so much potential! He has won over the hearts of many staff and volunteers, who just want to see Milo go to an amazing loving home! If you would like to get to know Milo or have any other questions, please contact the shelter info@uppercredit.com or 519.833.2287

Story
Hello! My name is George Costanza - but you can call me George! Or Georgie Porgie, as my friends do!I have been patiently waiting for my FUR-ever home since November 2023; I'm so excited for my new family to come along and take me home. I am a super fun boy who loves fetch, long walks and WATER! I would be the best cottage buddy, floating down the river buddy or hiking buddy. Imagine: me and you, in a floatie, lounging on the lake with a cold drink and a yummy snack!My new family should know that when I get excited, I can be jumpy. But I love training and am doing really well - I'm so smart that I know how to sit without even being asked! And I'm learning lots of other cool tricks too, just ask my friends. MY IDEAL HOME INVOLVES...CHILDREN: Teenagers could be ok; no young childrenOTHER DOGS: Potentially, depending on the dog. It doesn't seem like I have had much experience socializing with dogs, so I can be nervous at first. Once I warm up, I can be playful although a bit awkward - silly me! I would be the best match with a very well-socialized and tolerant dog buddy.CATS: No, my energetic nature would likely be too much for a cat.FIRST-TIME DOG OWNERS: No, I need an owner with previous dog experience.FENCED-IN YARD: Highly recommended, unless you live on a country property.HOUSING ENVIRONMENT: No apartment buildings SOME OTHER THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT ME...ACTIVITY LEVEL: Medium-high.HOUSE-TRAINED: Almost!If you think I could be a good match for your home, click the "adopt me" button to apply!
