May 2023 - Milo voted BRLA Most Improved!
Milo came to us as an owner surrender. He is about 2-3 years old. His previous owner was a young guy living with his parents. When he went off to college the plan was for his girlfriend to bring Milo and they would all live together. That never happened so Milo ended up at BRLA. He had very limited exposure to the outside world in his original home. Like a latch key kid, Milo was fearful and unsettled outside. He would over react to dogs or people. At times he would even transfer to handlers leg but Milo has grown more confident over time as you can see
After 6 months working with our team at BRLA, Milo could walk in the world with more confidence and less fearful reactivity. He could see dogs and people and keep moving forward. Depending on the handler, and proximity to trigger, he could still be impulsive but his good life experience was sinking in. He mastered his basic commands.
Update: After 1 year of working hard with TeamBRLA, Milo has turned the corner and has built confidence and trust to no longer fear new people AND he has canine friends. It's amazing to see the transformation process.
Milo needs a very confident, very experienced human to keep him on track and take him to the well balanced finish line! He has the potential to do so in the right hands.
He now fully enjoys his walks in non stimulating familiar areas, playtime and has become more curious than cautious. But if he sees a cat, all bets are off. He does not like cats.
Milo is perfectly happy to be a stay at home kinda guy. He's been enjoying home time with one of our staff and inside the home he is great. He is now BFF with resident male mastiff. The outside world continues to be a challenge for our latch key kid Milo. A quieter life at home works great for Milo Or a confident person committed to continue working with him in more stimulating environments to not react.
Milo has come so far and shown us what a good boy he is in the right hands and right home
THE BEST HOME FOR MILO SHOULD
