To be eligible to adopt Milo, you must be an approved adopter of GRRMF. Visit our How to Adopt page to review our process, policies and application. Please pay special attention to the sections on puppy facts, children and dogs and fences on our website prior to submitting an application for a puppy. If you are already on our approved adopter waiting list, an adoption coordinator will contact you if you are matched to meet this pup’s needs.
This very handsome young man is still very much a pup and loves to play with his foster parents. He is happy to sit by them and adores belly rubs. Milo holds his foster mom’s arm in between his paws and squirms and squiggles so that she makes his belly rub as long as possible. Very smart young man to have figured that out, wouldn’t you say?
He has three foster canine siblings but is still learning to adjust to them. We think he was the king of his own castle in the past, so he may do best with a family where he is the only dog. He keeps a close eye on his family and wants to be in the same room with them – although he doesn’t always need to be on top of them.
He loves to sleep either in his comfy bed at the end of his foster parents’ bed or he will try and jump in their bed to test drive it. Again, very smart young man! He loves to play ball and is passionate about chewing on his hard bones. Did you say car ride? He’s all in and loves to go places. He either sits quietly while looking out the window or stretches out in the back seat as the car rolls along. Let’s just say he is an “easy rider”!
Milo is working very hard with his foster mom and dad to control his puppy jumping. This was a bit challenging as he was recovering from very minor surgery. But at 77 pounds, he is very curious about what’s on the counters and surfs for whatever he can get a hold of easily. Sometimes he believes jumping on people is a great way to get their attention. But he is already learning that this is not a good habit and he practices all the time – to keep his paws on the floor. His foster mom says he is improving every day! He is not a big barker unless he is gazing out the front window and sees something – like a person walking by or a duck.
Patience, training and love from his ‘fur’ever home will help this boy to develop into an awesome family member to have and to hold for always.
