I’m ADOPTED! Woot! Woot!
Milton is about a year old and from what I can tell has been living most of his short life on the streets. A very nice man fed him and called the animal control officer when Milton was injured. His injury meant that the vets at the Wake County Animal Center (WCAC) had to amputate his right front leg. Milton is currently around 62 lbs – a big boy – but that doesn’t slow him down. He frolics with our own dog and plays with me like a big puppy.
As breeds go he can probably be best described as an American Shelter Mutt, but there are signs of Rottweiler, Doberman, and Labrador.
He is very sweet and once he knows you and trusts you he will be asking for your affection at every turn. He makes a very nice companion. For example, when you’re working in a room he’ll find a little spot to lie down in and just be with you. His gentle nature has also been evident in his interactions with our cat. He’s interested in the cat, but doesn’t seem interested in chasing him.
Milton’s previous life seems to have left him wary of humans. If he hurts, like if he falls on his stitches, his first thought seems to be that the human he does not know that is closest to him is the cause. He gets over it quickly, but it comes on quickly. He reacts the same way when you try to get him to go somewhere by leash – even if you’re trying to lead him to his food bowl.
Milton is available for adoption through the Wake County Animal Center. His ID number is 80000. His adoption fee is $95.00 and includes his neuter surgery, vaccinations, and microchip. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to meet Milton.
