Milo

ABOUT ME

Hi I’m Milo a super smart, athletic and playful, 6-month old pup! I enjoy time with my humans, and am also independent enough to do my own thing like lounging in the sun, chewing my Bully Sticks or squeaky toys.

I’m already neutered, currently weigh about 60lbs and I’m a Cane Corso/ Pitbull/Stafforshire mix so I’m probably still growing.

I am a boy who knows what he wants. I’m early to bed (I even go into my crate on my own at night if I’m ready for bed before everyone else!) and early to rise – I sleep about 9-10 hours straight in my crate every night.

I DO love to lay on my bed with my people if they let me- but because I like to sprawl out and adjust my position a lot, it’s not always so comfortable for them.

I enjoy going for walks and am pretty good on a leash. I definitely need exercise and mental stimulation every day because I am a “worker”. I am great riding in the car and am always happy to go for rides! I also love meeting new people and my family laughs at how excited I get when I do because I wag my whole butt back and forth – not just my tail!

Because I’m so smart and went through puppy training, I know many basic commands like “sit”, “turn around”, “down”, “drop it”. We’re still working on “place/stay” and my trainer says I’m improving every day! I’m also good at communicating what I want. I go to the door and ring the bell when I need to go outside. I am 98% potty trained (as long as my family makes sure I go out after drinking lots of water).

I stand next to my water dish and give a quick bark if my bowl is empty. I definitely need to continue my training to keep me mentally stimulated and to make sure that I know my new humans are in charge.

I need a home where I am the only dog.
