Hi! I'm Milton! I'm an 8-year-old sweetheart but I look like a puppy -- so you get the best of both worlds! I came to Summit Dog Rescue from Texas. They tell me I'm a mix of Chihuahua/Dachshund/Miniature Pinscher (Min Pin), and I weigh only 15 pounds, but my love of life is much larger!
I love to go on long walks, take long naps, and sing with my foster buddies. Check out my awesome foster Mom's video below of me bonding with my buds! In fact, I love to sing so much that I can throw my head way back and lift my front feet off the ground! Everybody says it's beyond precious. Sometimes when I meet people it takes a minute to warm up to them (since I'm such a small dude) but once I get to know how trustworthy you are, I'm a totally interactive, loving and charming guy!
My foster Mom and foster buddies are teaching me how to trust everybody and learn how much love and affection there are in this world. I'm discovering what toys are and I'm learning how to play -- a cool new thing in my life! I'm very polite on walks, and I bark only occasionally just to make sure everybody knows I'm still there. And...I even like getting a bath! How cool is that!
I'm now getting some great basic training, and I love it! My ideal adopter will continue working with me so I can really learn to strut my stuff.
They say I have some allergies that everybody's trying to figure out. My new peeps will need to follow up on this process and be prepared to manage this for me. But hey -- look what you get in return: A cool little dude who's cute and handsome all at the same time!
I like most other dogs and I'm doing great with the kitties in my foster home. They're saying I'll likely be happy as an only dog or a member of a multi-animal household. The important thing is that I find my forever home so I can feel special and loved. I have a lot to give!
For more info about me, go to the top toolbar, click Adopt, click Dog Application, fill it out and send it in. A nice volunteer from Summit Dog Rescue will get back to you as soon as they can.
