Applications closed – Milo

  • Applications for Milo are now closed while we work through the list of people who have applied.
  • Milo is a small lurcher – most likely a whippet cross bedlington terrier. He stands 22 inches to the shoulder and is 18 months old.
  • He is basically still a puppy. He is a happy little dog, who settled very quickly into foster. He is always super excited and enthusiastic to be doing stuff and interacting with people.
  • He would benefit from a home that can give him a decent balance of  exercise AND brainwork. He needs 1-2 hours walks and some training time or brain games.
  • Milo is quiet in the house and sleeps well. He plays with toys and chews by himself during the day, knows to look in the toy box.
  • He can be left for a few hours after exercise and shows no problems being left either alone or with doggy company.
  • Milo is living happily with another male lurcher. He does barks at dogs when he sees them out walking but once introduced and walked he is fine. If a dog tells him to back off he does so straight away.
  • He can bark at some people when out but not in an aggressive way and he is just excited. If they stand still for a moment he will go to them and lick their hand and say hello.
  • Milo is great with kids and used to live with young children with no problems.
  • Milo is not cat tested but did live happily with a rabbit previously.  He doesn’t show much interest in squirrels in the park. Its possible he could live with a confident cat who did not run and an owner experienced in introducing dogs and cats in the same household but he may be too full on for a timid cat that runs.
  • His prey drive is generally quite low – he shows a little interest in wildlife and is easily distracted.
  • Milo is partially house trained – he may occasionally have the odd accident and needs to be taken out regularly to ensure he stays clean indoors.
  • As with most beddie whippets he is barkier than your average lurcher – its all excitement barking though.
  • He has been fine in the car while in foster.
  • Milo is in foster in Corby, Northamptonshire.
