Milo is a 2 year old Border Terrier. He was found cowering in the back of a dark cage at Animal Control, and a CCHS staff person immediately pulled the frightened dog. As is so often the case, the poor animals that seem so introverted and afraid in the beginning, become the most loving and affectionate. It almost seems that they are the ones who are most grateful for being saved. Milo shows his love and gratitude each and every day at the CCHS shelter. He is such a sweet boy, and just seems to cherish every little bit of attention that comes his way. Milo would make a great companion in most any home. He would do well as a "starter" dog in a young family, as he is also young and playful, but he would also do well in a senior, more mature home, as he is a fairly small dog with a very gentle demeanor. Milo has been neutered and is fully vaccinated. He is being treated for heartworms, but a full recovery is certainly expected. However, heartworm treatment requires a calm, quiet month following the first injection. CCHS would like to see Milo in a private home, where he can properly recuperate from his treatment. (Calm and quiet is very hard to achieve in a shelter situation.) Even if Milo is adopted during the time of his treatment, CCHS will still be financially responsible for the remainder of his heartworm treatment. If anyone is interested in this very special little guy, please call Clayton County Humane Society at 770/471-9436. Visit www.claytoncountyhumane.org to see other animals available for adoption.
