Hello, my name is Milton! I am an 18-pound, 10-year-old male Terrier/Poodle mix. I am so happy to be able to start my new loved-and-appreciated life! I was picked up by Animal Control and they did not even think I was alive! Obviously, I had a very hard time before I came to SBRET but am feeling so much better now. I am a sweet older dog that does have significant hearing loss. I can hear certain sounds but you have to be within seeing distance for me to know you are asking for my love. I am currently living in my foster home with three other dogs. It took me a few days to want to hang with them but I seem perfectly content now. I sleep in my crate all night with no issues! I even go to my crate and sleep inside when I get tired of chewing my bone. I am a slow riser in the morning, usually takes me a few minutes to want to get up and head outside! But once I do some big stretches I am ready to go!!!
I am a quiet guy - the only time I bark is when I see my foster mom return from a day at work. I get so excited to see her! Then I go outside and run in the grass! It feels really good on my toes! I would be perfectly content as an only dog in my new home or with other dogs. My foster mom does not have cats so I have no idea what I would think of them. I have been working very hard on my leash training and am making big improvements. I am housetrained as long as you give me enough time to walk and sniff all over the yard….it sometimes takes me a little bit to find the exact right place to go! But if you take your time with me I am good!
I am neutered, have had my dental, have my microchip, and am current on all my vaccinations, heartworm and flea preventatives. If you are looking for a sweet older gentleman to come live with you, I am your guy! My adoption fee is $100.
