Our love affair with Milo the Love Potato goes way back. We met him years ago, when he was a young pup someone dropped over our shelter fence one night. When we first saw him, he bounded out of darkness and we froze, unsure of what to do. We still laugh about that moment six years later. All wiggly-bottomed and excited, he plopped down, rolled onto his back, legs splayed in all directions, for a belly rub. Instantly, we fell in love with his sweetness. It's hard not to. Two of our staffers fostered Milo in their home, along with two other pibble-mixes, and they were a dream team together. He was perfect. So, perfect, his foster moms knew Milo would thrive in an adoptive home. He found a family, and was adopted along with another puggle from PAWS Atlanta. They would be BFF's for 5+ years, until Milo's puggle companion and his beloved human father passed away within a short time of each other. Milo's mom eventually decided to adopt another young dog who, in turn, Milo did not take to. So, he is back with us, and back at square one again. But, here's the thing:
Milo is grown now (almost 8) and he's a tripod (accident long ago in his home), and he's a little bewildered and saddened by his change of fortune. But, he's still perfect. He's funny, endearing, playful, up-for-anything, adores car rides and feeling his ears flapping in the wind. He's still wiggly-bottomed and joyful. He's still a lapdog, through and through.
He's impossible to photograph because he immediately drops on his back as splays himself out like a russet potato at your feet. He's just a good, good, good boy.
We think he would feel most comfortable as an only dog. We're not sure on cats, but we can test him. Milo is such a great dog. If you're interested in meeting him, please fill out an adoption application at PAWSAtlanta.org and we'll get you scheduled for an appointment to come spend some time with Milo.
