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
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!
