Back in July a stunning low riding brindle was picked up as a stray at an area animal control. He had gotten adopted from there but the family didn't give him enough time to settle in and he was returned a week later. He kept being overlooked so a volunteer at the shelter reached out to us, and basically begged for us to come meet him. So our interaction team went and met him, fell head of heels, and wouldn’t rest until we could bust him out. We knew he’d need a foster willing to be patient, let him settle in, and follow the Two Week Shut Down to the letter. This boy deserved it. And that’s when it happened...an experienced foster family stepped up. Miles is 2 years old and 55 lbs and he’d like to request a home that has peanut butter, hot dogs, butt scratches and rope balls. He'd also like a home where people will play chase with him. Miles put in a special request that his new home does not have cucumbers, vacuums, and grooming of any kind. (yea, we know... but we are here to communicate his desires. so we just out these things out there!). Miles pulls a little but eases up on walks. He is crate trained and potty trained. His foster family recommends a family with kids over 10 years old because Miles is a bull in a china shop and isn't aware of his size. Miles knows sit, down, come and leave it, and he’s working on the rest of his manners. Miles is a diamond in the rough who needs a patient and dedicated adopter to help him become the best dog he can be. He is cautious when meeting new people and dogs, and has shown that he could be picky about other dogs in the home (you can't like every one, right?). Miles and his foster parents are working very hard with a trainer to help polish our little rough diamond so don’t let these things scare you off. Miles has so much love to give and he just needs a chance to show how great he can be. Are you the family Miles needs?
