Milo is a 12-year-old Shih Tzu looking for a new home as he is not comfortable around the young grandchild who regularly visits his home. Milo is being rehomed by Freshfields Animal Rescue in Liverpool, but note that he is still at his current home and is on Freshfields’ waiting list – you can enquire about him now if you can offer him the type of home he needs though…
Recently Milo was in his bed when the grandchild crawled over to him, resulting in Milo biting him. It was not a serious bite, but now Milo is having to be locked away a lot of the time which his family feels is unfair on him.
Milo is a fantastic boy who is friendly with adults, however he is a typical Shih Tzu and will bark when someone knocks at the door. He can also become anxious when people stand up and go to leave the room and will bark and chase their feet. His current owners manage this by picking him up when people go to leave. Milo is not fond of the postman, but this is because a postman kicked him in the past!
Milo is sociable with other dogs on walks but can be grumpy towards puppies as he prefers his own space. He has never lived with other dogs, however his current owner feels he could potentially live with a calm, older female. He does not like cats.
Milo is a healthy and active dog who thoroughly enjoys his walks. He has no known illnesses and has recently had his teeth cleaned and some extracted. It is hard to believe that he is 12 years old!
Freshfields are looking for an adult-only, quiet home for Milo with no visiting children and no children planned for the future. Milo is clean and non-destructive in the home and can be left alone for a few hours – being a senior boy he does love to snooze!
Milo is an affectionate boy who loves to play with toys and is happy to be groomed. He will make a wonderful companion in a home free from young children.
Milo is on Freshfields’ waiting list – he is not at the kennels. Please phone to enquire about making an appointment to meet Milo.
