Milo is an approximately 1-year-old mini-pinscher and Italian greyhound mix. He was rescued hanging around the yard of his rescuers' home. Milo's vaccinations are current, he has been neutered and he has a microchip. He was very thin but is now slowly gaining weight, and he had a couple of scabs which may have been a result of injury.
Milo is working on becoming house-trained to be a house dog, and he sleeps inside the house. He is a little possessive of his treats, probably because he didn't get fed regularly. He is timid, gentle, affectionate, playful and well-mannered. Milo is a lap dog who gets along with other dogs and cats. He is good with teens and adults, but we are not sure about children. He rides well in the car. He doesn't like to be alone, so he needs to have a non-working or recently retired person to love him.
Milo is being offered for adoption through Animal Friends Connection, a Lodi nonprofit organization dedicated to helping companion animals since 1990. For more information about Milo, call 209-368-1761.
