Hi everyone, I’m Milo! I am an 8 year old short hair dachshund with a little extra weight on my bones. My foster family has me on a nice health plan of only eating (the right amount) of my food and regular exercise. I don’t mind too much because I LOVE going for walks and everyone who meets me thinks I’m adorable and wants to give me lots of treats! Plus my foster family thinks it adds to how cute I am since my weight really emphasizes my dachshund-bounce when I walk. And if you think that’s great, you should see me waddle—I mean run.
I came to CDR, through no fault of my own, when my old owners could no longer take care of me. My foster mom says they must have really had a hard time parting with me because of how great I am and because I came with lots of stuff; even my own set of steps to get onto the couch and bed. However, with them I spent a lot of time alone in my crate. Because of this I like to be able to come and go from my crate, so when you leave the house I like to have the roam of the place (you can trust me) with my crate door open. I usually just sleep away the day. At night I have discovered, thanks to my foster mom, that I really like sleeping in the big bed with you, but I will be perfectly fine in my crate, with the door open.
I am best suited for a house where I am the only pet. I do not get along well with other dogs and the weird looking things they call cats. I like to warn my humans of things like bikes, squirrels, and my presence so I tend to bark, so a house is definitely where I need to be. Especially if you have a backyard or garden! I can be other there for hours. Being a senior I am not really in need of any training, unless you want to help me socialize. I know all the basic commands, relearned how to use my stairs, and am fully housetrained! I don’t know why but my foster mom is really excited about it.
I am a sweet little girl in need of lots of love. I am a little standoffish at first, but I warm up quickly and love to cuddle with you. The second you sit down I am right on your lap ready to cuddle and give you kisses. I am really excited for my very own family to give me all the love and snuggles I deserve, could that be you?
