Mylo is an 8 year old male Bichon Frise cross West Highland White Terrier. He came to us as an unclaimed stray on the same day that he was due to be euthanised in a dog pound.

We were his last chance, as no other suitable rescue came forward to help him in his hour of need. He was very matted and dirty and had infected teeth and gums, which made him feel very grumpy and miserable.

Due to this, he initially struggled with being touched and having contact of any kind with his new caregivers, even including having a lead on and off when taken for walks.

However, during his time with us, we discovered that he is VERY fond of treats and he is a very intelligent little boy, quickly learning (with positive reinforcement) that having led on and off is no bad thing.

Mylo even started to realise that the occasional, TINY cuddle is quite nice if maybe a little overwhelming at times. He can guard food and toys but can be distracted easily with treats so this can be managed well with the right approach.

During his time in his foster home, Mylo has settled well and is relaxing some of his guarding tendencies. He is better with toys etc outside but can still be protective of them inside and can be easily overwhelmed, as toys are his favourite thing in the whole world!

Little walks are best for him, as he loves having a nap and would rather be asleep than go for a run. He is toilet-trained and will let you know when he wants to go outside.

Mylo needs a dog-savvy adult-only home (preferably limited to 1 or 2 adults), probably dog-free, or where there is another VERY calm/older dog-friendly dog to be a teacher and companion for him.

Mylo is ok with cats. He needs a home with lots of patience and kindness to continue supporting him with his resource guarding training and confidence building, as well as the understanding to let him have his own space and let him interact at his own pace. He will not be a cuddly lap dog straight away but he still has lots of love to give in his way.
