"His colour and his personality are a winning combination, and if he is out for a walk in a high-traffic area, it is nearly impossible to get from point A to point B without being stopped several times by curious passerby's! Milo is a red-brindle; his base coat is a lovely caramel colour, and his whole body is accented by striped black markings. His looks are oddly similar to that of a tiger, and it is this unique appearance that makes him stand out in a crowd. Whenever people stop to inquire about him, he is more than happy to greet them with a wagging tail and a solicit for a good ol' ear rub. It is this combination of looks and charm that distinguishes him from the labs, goldens and doodles that are common as pets and people tend to naturally gravitate towards him out of curiosity.

The fact that he fit right into my life so seamlessly really surprised me. I know that adoption groups always tell their adopters to expect a transition period of a few weeks, but for Milo he walked right in and settled into his new life in a couple of days. He was really a "readymade" dog, and bringing him into our home was a surprisingly easy process.

Whenever we have guests over, people always comment on how Milo is constantly watching me, and how close our bond is. For a few months, I didn't realize just how close we had become as a pair, but after a few people had commented on how attached he is to me, I reflected back on how he behaves and it became clear to me that they were right. He isn't the type of dog that needs to be in your lap at all times, but he makes the effort to be near me all the time. He follows me around the house, and waits outside the door while I shower. It's just the little things that add up, and I find that this bond really adds a lot of meaning and purpose to my life." #greyhounds #doglife #rescuedogsrock #rescuedogsofinstagram #adoptdontshop
