This beautiful Springer is Milo! He is a wonderful dog with the best disposition. His blaze is shaped like a heart, so his foster mom calls Milo her heart boy. He is long and lean with an elegant neck and a big head.
Milo was surrendered to ESRA because his family was moving, and they could not take him with them. Previously he lived on open land with other small animals (goats, chickens, and bunnies). Milo now also lives on acreage at his foster home, which he happily shares with the four resident Springers. Easygoing Milo is pack centered; he does not take off in the woods, preferring to be near his doggie friends and his people.
One of Milo’s favorite things is riding shotgun in the car when his foster dad takes him to work on occasion. He is housetrained and trustworthy, and he does just fine when he is left alone at home with his foster siblings. Milo is not destructive, nor does he get into anything inappropriate. He really is an overall good guy with no issues. Since he adores the resident dogs, Milo would prefer to be in a Forever Home with canine companionship.
Having adapted well into the pack, Milo delights in running and hunting with his foster brothers and sister. He also loves to roughhouse and play chase with his two youngest foster siblings. Milo does have one shortcoming, if you can call it that — he did not hesitate from day one to get up on his foster parents’ laps, whether they were sitting on the furniture or on their bed! He likes to be near his humans, especially sleeping in bed with them. Milo sleeps nicely through the night.
Thriving in his foster home with his furry peers, Milo does yearn for their off-leash daily hikes in the woods because he loves to hunt for birds! This agile boy leaps amazingly high and long when he sees a bird. He is smart, he listens, and he always comes back when called. Milo also loves water, whether he is chasing and barking at the hose or at the waves in the lake. This silly fellow even tried to get into the bathtub when his foster mom was taking a bath!
Milo does not have a mean bone in his body toward either people (including small children) or other canines. His foster family says that they can do anything to him: clean his ears, give him a bath, or dry off his feet after being outside. Milo lets his foster mom get right in his face to kiss him, and he does not mind a bit. He was recently groomed, and the groomer proclaimed him an angel. Milo shows no signs of food aggression with his canine siblings or his humans. He respects the resident fosters when they are eating and does not try to steal their food. He also takes treats very gently.
For a young male Springer, this intelligent boy listens well, but he would benefit from a strong leader. He knows the commands Sit, Down, Come, and No. Milo is essentially a happy guy. He wants to hunt, play, please, and be loved. And since he is a young Springer, this handsome boy will require daily exercise. Currently he gets three off-leash hikes a day in the woods, and he also plays daily with his canine siblings. He is especially fond of chasing tennis balls in the yard.
Milo is heartworm negative and up to date on all vaccinations, and he has been neutered and microchipped. He is ready to find a true Forever Home to call his own. This super sweet Springer will make a great addition to a lucky family.
