This dog REALLY does not want to be in a kennel any longer. He whines and barks when he's in there, and absolutely comes alive when he's out.

Milo is a two-year-old Pit mix. The staff at HSR took this "statement" from him as he made his own pitch to find a new home:

Hi, I'm Milo! I am pretty new to the shelter and it has taken me a bit to get used to life here. It is hard being a shelter dog, and the busyness of this place makes life extra tough and stressful for me. I just want to be able to relax and feel safe. I am such a sweet, loving and playful guy when I'm in a situation where I feel at ease. I know there is a person or family out there that can give me that. I'd love a soft bed to sleep on and get endless butt scratches(I love them so much) I have excellent car manners and enjoy going for walks. I do need a home with no other animals. I have lived in a home with children 2 years old & up, even children with special needs and enjoyed being around them. I'm wishing for a new owner who knows my past may have been tough and a home where I'd be given the time to decompress and receive all the love that I deserve to flourish as the new family addition. If you would like to meet me, ask to meet me in the yard where I feel happiest!
