Hi, I'm Milo
Shih Tzu | Senior | Male | Small
Old age is no picnic. But imagine finding you can no longer walk properly, and then your family abandons you. It would be easy to give up on life… but not Milo!
Milo wants to be wherever you are. He’ll follow you around when he’s walking well and when he’s not, he loves to sit where he can watch you. He loves to be held, or carried, or just lie in your lap. He’s the perfect companion while you’re watching TV, gardening or enjoying your yard.
Milo does have a few health problems.
IVDD, intervertebral disk disease, causes him to sometimes drags his rear legs but on good days, he walks on all 4 legs. Recently, he got a doggy wheelchair that’s very easy to use and promises to give him an ease of movement he may not have had for years. Milo also has a heart murmur but is asymptomatic.
Milo’s house-training is impressive and there’s no issue with his cleanliness.
Milo’s a quiet dog and finds a lot of noise and erratic activity unsettling so a calm household would be best.
Milo’s likes other dogs as long as they’re gentle but particularly loves small dogs. In fact, his ideal home would have another small, gentle dog. Most of all, Milo’s family would never desert him.
