Well what can I say! Had a call the other evening from a rescue we work closely with, who had a call from a vets to say they had a GSD in who was only 14 months and his owner wanted him put to sleep because he had bitten him. We of course said yes we will help so arranged to collect Milo the next day. Then I get the panicked phone call a bit later saying he had just got a photo and it wasn’t a GSD and so he had no idea where he was going to put him. So yes, we took him in anyway!
May I therefore introduce Milo who is a Border Collie cross we believe. His microchip just says cross. He was born in Nov 2018 and is vaccinated and neutered.
No young children as we do not know his history. Has not shown any aggression towards other dogs so far. Unknown with cats. Milo was very nervous when he arrived but was very happy to go out for a nice walk and have his photo taken.
MIlo is a strong lad and does show some aggression over food. Whilst he will happily go for walks with other dogs, he does get very jealous if the other dog is being fussed and he is not, so will need to be the only dog in the home.
Milo has had a spell in a foster home where he could be very loving but also very grumbly at times which could not be pinned on any particular trigger. A firm no to this behaviour did seem to work. He does not seem to like sudden movements and really did not like the male of the house if he had an alcoholic drink, and in fact did try to bite him. This makes you wonder what this poor lad has been through. If only they could talk.
Milo is going to need a very patient and understanding home that has dealt with a dog of this type before, where he can be treated fairly but firmly whilst allowing him the space he needs to fully relax and realise he is safe and can relax his guard.
