Dogs For Adoption

Please enjoy your visit with our Canine friends! They need good homes and loving owners!  We have others awaiting a clean bill of health before being offered up for adoption, so please check back often!

For your entertainment, we present Milo, a spaniel mix.  Coming to us as a stray from a shelter, we soon found that he was heartworm positive. We also found that he is a sweet, loving and playful snuggle-bunny.  His tail wags constantly, even when he's eating.  He loves adultsí children and other dogs after appropriate introduction, otherwise is wary.  He was likely born in 2012 and weighs 32 pounds.  Great on or off the leash outdoors and he enjoys his time alone in a fenced area as well.  Walks and rides in the van are fun for him.  He loves cuddle time in the bed as well as on the furniture.  His shiny black coat = shedding, so applicants should keep that in mind.  Occasional grooming will be necessary.

Heartworm is easily preventable by giving a chewable once a month, and his adopter MUST be a person who is organized and can keep track of the date Milo's dose is needed for the rest of his life.  We owe that to him, as he has gone through the painful treatment and waits for a report around Thanksgiving that will declare him heartworm free.  His adoption to the "Right Match" could happen before that date, provided there is a commitment to return him for his check-up.

Milo's one hang up, and it's more than a minor one -- evidently in his former home housetraining was an option.  AFL volunteers have worked diligently to turn this around and Milo is doing very well. However, it takes a human being to watch the clock and open the door for him as he has not mastered his own signal for going outdoors as yet.  Milo greatly enjoys the giddy praise when he does his duty outside and is rewarded with a tiny treat when he comes indoors.  He stays in a crate when family are gone, otherwise he has the run of the house and can always be 
found wherever the people are located.

Milo will be your sidekick and protector, alerting that intruders have arrived at the doorstep.  Other than that, he rarely barks. Anyone in search of a fun, medium sized dog should consider meeting Milo - he's a rare gem!
