Milo has been adopted! 07-14-2022
Milo came from an Indian reservation in New Mexico. He had a person who wanted to keep him but was having problems finding a rental that would allow him to keep Milo when he moved to Orange County. He asked Coastal GSR to help Milo find a permanent home and we are happy to do so.
Milo is 9 months old and never met a dog he didn't like. He also likes people but needs a few minutes - literally minutes - to check you out and get comfortable, but then warms up very quickly. This adorable puppy is currently living with a foster family who has two male dogs and a cat. He was initially "cat curious," but is now totally fine sharing his foster home with a feline.
Milo loves (LOVES) to play with his young male canine foster brother and they can chase each other around the backyard for hours, having the time of their lives. He wasn't house trained when he came to us, but his foster is working with him and he's catching on quickly. He was also a little afraid of the dog door, but now uses it to take himself outside when he needs to potty. Milo sleeps on a dog bed with his canine foster brothers, which might be the cutest thing you've ever seen. As a puppy, he is still very curious and will sometimes try to steal things, like the newspaper or clothing, which he takes into the garden to treasure, but not destroy.
Milo is on the smaller side for a GSD and there may be a little bit of another breed in there, such as Australian Cattle Dog. Whatever his genetics, this happy pup has the best personality in the world and is going to be a great addition to his forever home.
The minimum adoption donation for adults is $375 and the adoption donation for puppies is $500. This amount only partially covers the cost of veterinary care, boarding fees, and other miscellaneous expenses involved in the temporary care and adoption of our dogs and is tax deductible when permitted by law. The adoption donation provides that all dogs will be spayed or neutered, receive current vaccinations, and are microchipped. If not, arrangements will be made on an individual basis ( i.e., puppies who will need to be altered by 6 mos old). Special consideration may be given to those willing to adopt older dogs or dogs with physical problems.
