Milo is such a playful pup! This energetic youngster is determined to keep up with the other dogs in his foster home, playing and pouncing on them. Then he snuggles with his human companions, asking for belly and chin rubs. This loving boy is their goofy and fun playmate. His friendliness continues outside when neighbors and other dogs walk by!

This very affectionate and extremely smart boy loves to spend time in the yard playing with toys and searching for sticks he can chew on. Milo is dealing with some effects from distemper, including some lameness in a leg that gives him a goofy, wobbly walk. He also needs time to lie down, which he can use to snooze or chew on more sticks! The hope is that these effects will lessen as this silly boy gets older.

Milo would like to start a new life in a quiet, loving home where his humans are home often so he can socialize and be the fun-loving boy he is. Come check him out!

PUPPIES AND OTHER HIGHLY-ADOPTABLE DOGS DISCLAIMER:

Puppies and other highly-adoptable dogs (small dogs or desirable-breed dogs) at APA! are very high in demand and usually have several interested adopters. Inquiring about a dog, meeting a dog, and even applying for a dog does not guarantee that you will be able to adopt the dog. Only one household will be able to adopt each dog, which means all other interested households will inevitably and unfortunately be disappointed. Please consider this in your search and set your expectations accordingly. Please also consider that adult dogs do not typically have competing adopters, and they need furever homes, too! Additionally, APA! does not allow the adoption of dogs who are related (e.g., littermates or mom and pup) to the same household for behavioral reasons.
