Tell us about your animal:

Milo is a Mini Australian Shepherd with beautiful Red-Merle Markings and blue eyes. He is 40 lbs and only 2 years old. Milo is very loyal and loving and will follow you everywhere you go in the house. He’s a big lap dog who is eager to please. He will snuggle next to you on the couch resting is head on your lap or curl up on the bottom of your bed at night. He is extremely obedient and well-behaved, as he’s worked extensively with a Behavioral Trainer. He knows sit, down, heel, and place (which is laying on his dog bed). He is crate trained, potty trained, leash trained (will not pull on the lead) and can be left in the home alone without any fear of him chewing or having an accident. Milo loves fetch with a tennis ball and playing with other dogs. Milo has a bite history and needs an owner who is willing and able to work with him. He is fearful with strangers and does not like to be pet by them. He doesn’t bark or growl, but should be kept away from children and not be pet by a stranger until he has met them several times and approaches them himself. I would recommend the owner has other dogs as it makes Milo feel more comfortable. Milo is a playful, snuggly, and obedient dog, but needs an owner who can work with a dog with this history.
