Milo is a small to medium sized 9-10 year old male Collie Cross. He was rescued from a kill shelter in Bosnia two years ago by another rescue. We were recently asked to take him on to further his development.
Milo is an independent little man who has clearly had a difficult past. It has left him very much wanting to blend into the background and he is happier being part of a pack where he can be anonymous than he is being the focus of attention.
Milo enjoys his walks but cannot go for miles and miles because it leaves him quite stiff legged after. He is not a majorly affectionate dog, probably because he’s lived most of his life without affection or love being available to him.
Milo is afraid of men and children and will need a child free home, any men in the household will need to ignore him until he’s ready to start forming a friendship and not try to cajole him into liking them. A female only environment would be the easiest option.
This write up may make Milo sound like quite a sad little character but that is not the case. He is a happy dog whose tail wags often. He plays with other dogs in his foster home and in fact the puppies seem really drawn to his calming influence.
He’s definitely suffered abuse in his past and has a few trust issues but he still enjoys life and just needs the offer of a home where he can just blend in, he asks for so little out of life and is no trouble at all if his fears are acknowledged and understood.
Milo is fostered in Norwich Norfolk.
Please note it is Safe Rescue policy that all dogs adopted from us must wear a slip lead to be walked for the duration of their lives. Too many dogs are lost from slipping out of collars and harnesses and many of our dogs are timid due to past ill treatment and are likely to panic when out and about. It is absolutely okay to use these things additionally to slip leads, but not instead of.
We also request that extendable retractable leads are never used on our dogs. If you are opposed to slip leads, please do not enquire about our dogs as this is non negotiable. Thank you for understanding. All dogs have to be collected and a crate must be used.
