Borders Pet Rescue
A Male Crossbreed Dutch Shepherd who is age 18 to 24 months
Milo will need several visits before he can be rehomed so we can only accept applications from people who are willing/able to travel to the rescue centre a few times
Milo is a very intelligent +1yr Shepherd crossbreed. He is looking for a home with an experienced dog owner where he will be the only pet and with no young children. Milo needs a home that will give him the exercise he needs and also the mental stimulation and training that he needs. If he doesn’t get enough mental stimulation, then attention-seeking behaviours come out. He is easily bored so it is important in his new home he is kept mentally stimulated – he does enjoy chasing a ball, but that is not enough to keep him occupied!
Milo is such a clever dog who would love to have a “job” to do, for example; Mantrailing, scent work, or cani-cross to help keep him mentally stimulated – he has the energy, both physical and mental of a working dog.
Milo does need some work around other dogs as he can react to some but has been introduced to some dogs at the centre and he will walk out with the other centre dogs.
In his new home he must have his own secure garden with at least 5ft fencing so he can burn off some energy running about.
Poor Milo has spent a long time in kennels so will need an owner with the time and patience to help him settle into life in a home. He will find the first while in a home a bit difficult and quite exciting so an understanding owner is essential but given the chance he will make a great companion.
