MILTON is a beautiful tri-color senior boy, about 9-10 years young. MILTON is currently interviewing for his Forever Home. He wins all prizes for being a champion tail-wagger with a loving disposition. His vision is diminished from cataracts, which makes him cautious, but calm and determined in his movements. In short order he learned where the doggie door was at his Foster Home. He loves to go for walks, feeling secure with his person on a leash. His Foster Mom is quickly falling for his handsome features and self-confidence to trust in his abilities.

MILTON gets along splendidly with his Foster sisters and ignores the cats! His real happiness however seems to lie in being with his person. MILTON responds lovingly to being petted, hugged and just talked to. You can always find him by calling his name and listening for the tail thumps. He then comes over or with a “let’s go”, he is up and moving with  you. MILTON will readily load up into a car (perhaps with a helping hand!) and likes to go for rides. He has never had an accident in the house; indeed he doesn’t seem to have any faults - eats well, comes when called, knows basic commands, does not bark or dig in the yard.

MILTON is the nicest, kindest most appreciative Border Collie his Foster Mom has seen. MILTON would be perfect in a home with someone who would like to take walks with him and love on him. MILTON is a special boy.  A generous donation has already been made in MILTON’s name so Rescue will be happy to forego his adoption fee for someone who is interested in bringing MILTON into their heart and home.

MILTON is micro-chipped, neutered, heart worm negative and on preventative, and up to date on vaccinations.

MILTON is being fostered in Cool in El Dorado County, California.
