Milo is available for adoption through GSRE – this is what his current owners say about him.
Milo is a 10-month-old, male, semi/long haired, black and tan German Shepherd. He is not currently neutered but is microchipped and vaccinated. He has no known food allergies and currently eats IAMS dry food, twice daily along with treats. He has no disclosed medical issues and is described as being fine during vet visits. He has lived in his current home since he was 9 weeks old when he was obtained from a someone the owners know.
Milo is being rehomed through GSRE because his owners no longer have time for him.
Milo is good with children from teenage and is good with other dogs. He currently lives with another dog without any issues being disclosed. His reaction to cats or livestock is not known. He has never shown aggression or bitten anyone but will lunge and bark when unfamiliar people visit or deliveries come to the home. He is described as being OK with people but it just takes him time to get to know them.
Milo is not left alone very often other than on Friday and Saturday nights when he is left for up to 4 hours and will chew when alone. He is OK when travelling in the car but can sometimes be sick. He lives indoors and is housetrained.
Milo doesn’t get walked as he will bark and lunge at people, believing that he is nervous. His current owners do not know if he has a recall but he will sit when asked. He will sometimes mouth when a toy is taken off him but no mention of any food guarding issues.
During the time the GSRE assessor spent with Milo, this is what they said about him.
Upon the assessor’s arrival, Milo was initially loud and intimidating. However, he responded quickly to a low stimulus approach and a treat. He spends most of his time in the small garden where his only entertainment is watching people go by.
The assessor walked Milo on a slip lead and a muzzle initially, until confident he was under control. He walked well and calmly with one incident of ‘curiosity’ towards a man but with reassurance and moving to one side, he was fine. Milo has not been trained by his current owners and is not walked. The local council are monitoring the household after complaints were raised by neighbours.
