Milo

ABOUT ME

Meet Milo! Milo is a 9 month old Cane Corso and American Staffordshire Terrier mix, he is neutered. He is about 78 pounds but thinks he might still be a lapdog if anyone wants to cuddle.

Milo is fairly independent, especially if he has his favorite chew toy and a nice sunny spot to relax, but he loves nothing more than being around his people.

He is a smart, athletic boy and loves learning new tricks. Milo attended puppy training and knows his basic commands well, “sit,” “down,” “shake paws,” and he’s almost perfected “stay” as long as there isn’t a particularly chase-able moth flying by. We are still working on “drop it” but he is steadily improving. He is well potty trained and will signal he needs to go outside.

Milo loves walks, playing fetch, and playing in the water. We suspect he is going to be an excellent swimmer. So far Milo has made it clear that kiddie pools, lakes, creeks, and even big puddles are his favorite places to be, he is even a good boy in the bath tub!

Milo loves a cold drink from the hose after a nice walk on a hot day. He will let you know if his water dish runs too low with a quick bark. Milo knows the importance of staying hydrated!

On long walks and hikes Milo is a trooper and will even carry his own water and toys in his backpack. Milo has taken a couple of long hikes with his foster family and was a very attentive hiking buddy. He checks in on everyone and will let you know if someone seems to fall behind but he mostly loves checking out the scenery and trying to catch his new buggy friends.

Milo generally seems to love going for walks with his backpack and having a job or a treasure to carry (like a toy or a particularly good stick). He is a “worker” and really thrives with some exercise and mental stimulation daily.

He loves car rides and gets very excited when we go for walks in new locations.

He likes learning new tricks but thrives with his routine. Milo will even put himself to bed if he decides people are staying up too late. Milo is crate trained but has also done well home alone out of the crate in a room. He is happy sleeping on his own in the crate or occasionally snuggling with one of his foster parents. Milo is a respectful cuddler who waits to be welcomed into bed but he will stretch out and steal some of the covers sometimes.

Milo has had some positive interactions with other dogs but can be a lot for some dogs because of his puppy energy and love of playing. Milo gets very excited around new dog friends and will zoomie around with them. His first family loved Milo a lot, but unfortunately Milo did not get along with his doggy sister. He was a GREAT companion to his human mom and loved his (older school age) human brother and sister too! They are very sad that he needs to find a new family but they know it’s the best thing. They tell us that Milo’s next family will be very lucky to adopt such an awesome dog!
