Introducing our cheeky chap Milo. 

Unfortunately it is clear that Milo has had minimal to no socialisation prior to entering the centre. When he came to us he was incredibly nervous, and shows fear behaviours towards new people and other dogs. He came to us matted and in a sorry state but after some TLC and meeting his medical requirements properly he's much happier. 

After 5 weeks of being with us he has made great improvements; he has started to form lovely bonds with his carers here at the centre and is much more comfortable in his surroundings. He has started to interact and play with people, and he's allowing his cheeky personality to shine through. We have been providing Milo with plenty of positive interactions with strangers to improve his socialisation which he is coping with well; he's building bonds with new people at a much quicker rate than before. That being said, Milo still has a way to go with some of his challenging behaviours so he will need his new owner(s) to carry on his training needs to help him be his happiest and thrive in his new home.

Milo has shown resource guarding behaviours over items he values; so requires someone confident and understanding to manage this behaviour appropriately within the home. He can also still be sensitive to human touch causing a fear reaction if he's not comfortable so handling will need to be taken slowly and at Milo's pace. Due to these behaviours Milo requires someone who is confident and understands dog body language to truly thrive in his new home. Milo will need a quiet adult only home to avoid any added stress from strange visitors or children and he will not be homed to a household that has any other pets due to his poor socialisation with other dogs. 

Milo has shown to love his off lead play time, lovely walks and all the fuss from his favourite humans. It is important that Milo's new owners are able to offer him time, patience and ability to train Milo.
