**** The NMDR Rehab Team has been working with Birch to help him work through some behavior challenges. He needs a family who will be extra patient with him, and who preferably has previous experience with dogs. The NMDR Behavior Manager will talk to prospective adopters to explain the work we've done with him, and what will be the best home situation for him.

Birch is a young, high energy, Pomeranian/ Chihuahua mix. He recently went into foster care, where he has really started to blossom. Birch gets along great with other dogs, and will benefit from having another high energy, playful dog in his forever home. Birch is initially shy and takes time to trust the humans in his life, but once he gets to know someone, he enjoys attention from them. Because he is shy, Birch is considered a high flight risk and will need an experienced home with a fenced in yard to help keep him safe. Birch walks great on a leash and enjoys his time walking. He is also doing great with his potty training skills. While his favorite time is play time, a close second for Birch is treat time. Birch loves treats and is very food motivated. With time and patience, Birch will continue to blossom. If you're interested in learning more about Birch, please complete an application today at www.milldogrescue.org

Prior to being rescued, many of our dogs have experienced minimal socialization. As a result, there is often an adjustment period when learning about life as a family pet. We typically do not adopt to homes with children under 6 years old; homes with older children will be considered on an individual basis. Common skills such as house training and leash walking will often take a little extra time. Patience, understanding and a gentle hand are a must. The great news is, most of these dogs come around rather quickly and being a part of their rehabilitation is an extremely rewarding experience.
