Hi everyone! My name is Miles! Foster mom calls me “Miles of Smiles” because she says I am always smiling. But who can blame me? I came into CHAR heartworm positive and not feeling so hot but I have been treated for those pesky heartworms and am feeling much better now.
I am ready to find my forever home for the New year. I am around 2-3 years old, a great small size (32 pounds), and am a very active boy. I have been on exercise restriction due to the HW treatment but I can’t wait to go for long walks and am learning leash manners. I love to play with other dogs but don’t have good manners yet. I am a bit bossy so intolerant dogs may not be the best match for my assertive nature. I am not fond of young children but think that most adults should give me their absolute undivided attention. If they aren’t doing what I want them to do I am not above jumping and nipping to get them to bend to my demands…uh-hum wishes. I am a very smart boy and will gladly be the leader of our pack if you aren’t. I really need a strong person with herding dog experience to blossom in to the best dog I can be. I inherited a strong herding drive and will resource guard everything from toys to bones to my special person. I have some separation anxiety and will bark and soil my crate if left alone for long periods of time. I am working on these in my foster home but will need someone who will continue to set limits with me (foster mom made me write that!) and give me lots of attention.
I love to cuddle and will gladly lay with you and chew a bone or let you rub my belly. My main goal in life is to be with someone who loves me as much as I love them. If you think I sound like the perfect dog for you please let the CHAR folks know. I am super excited to meet you! 2019 is gonna be the best year EVER!
Miles is NOT suitable to a home with small children or animals (cats, etc.) as he has a very high prey/herding drive. He is up to date on vaccines, neutered, and microchipped. He is fostered in Charlotte, NC and his adoption fee is $300.
